Okay, I just don't understand the FDA. Really, how did their mandate go from protect the AmeriKan public health by monitoring the production of foods and drugs to what it is today. Today, the FDA has changed their mandate to seek out and control ACUTE toxins, and to look the other way when big agribusinesses and big pharma companies manufacture and use CHRONIC toxins. Acute toxins will kill you with one, or just a few doses, chronic toxins will accumulate in your body and cause cancer, destruction of your internal organs, retard the mental development of children and babies in utero, and a whole host of lesser, but often debilitating problems. When did that become the standard for which protection of the populace allows chronic toxins into our food supply. Well, I know when, and I know who did it, but the question is why. I believe that the answer to that is of course, money. As long as big business pours money into the coffers of politicians, hires directors and department heads from government agencies at outrageous salaries and not require them to do anything; then our health will be at risk from chronic toxins.
I guess that the problem is with mercury. Mercury is unbelievably toxic. It destroys brain cells. The real travesty here though is that all of what I am going to tell you about could have been prevented. The FDA was made aware of the mercury contamination years ago, and did nothing. The opportunity was given to the Federal agency to DO WHAT IS MANDATED TO DO! Stop production of HFCS, recall all products made with the contaminated product, and keep the American public from exposure and consumption of Mercury. The USDA, the EPA and Dept of Energy, all list Mercury as a Class 1 neurotoxin, one that is cumulative, and unfortunately, widespread. And yes, the great and all powerful FDA also categorize Mercury the same way. They give advisories to limit consumption of fish that may contain Mercury. The FDA however, chose not to say one single word about the Mercury contamination POSITIVELY found in the manufacturing processes in making High Fructose Corn Syrup. In 2005 a very public study was published identifying not only Mercury in HFCS but also in 45% of the products plucked from store shelves. Source The study found levels of Mercury in HFCS to be as high as .57 micrograms PER GRAM. The FDA sets the LIMIT of acceptable levels of Mercury to be 0.1 micrograms per 2.2 pounds of body weight. That means that a normal 120 pound woman that drinks 5 sugar sweetened soda beverages a day, one sports drink, eaten two slices bread, with jelly and most brands of peanut butter, had a quarter cup of ketchup with her fries, ate some ice cream and then had a pop tart before bed has consumed TWELVE TIMES THE LIMIT for Mercury set by the FDA. Could be a little higher if she had sushi.
Mercury poisoning is not something to trivialize. It is VERY serious. The fact that the stuff is cumulative makes it even more serious. Anyone that consumes large amounts fish like Blue Fin Tuna, Shark, whales, Swordfish etc, are at higher risk of degenerative CNS problems. Now, innocuous everyday foodstuffs and drinks are tainted with Mercury. It is no longer a problem of a few upper class people that are able to afford to eat the fish species most at risk; it is now a problem for every person in America. Some of the problems associated with cumulative Mercury poisoning are:
-lack of self control
-fits of anger, with violent, irrational behavior
Tragically food is not the only source of Mercury for our children in AmeriKa today. A huge amount of the toxic element is delivered intentionally through the vaccination program mandated by the AmeriKan government. Most vaccines manufactured today STILL use Thimerosal, a preservative that is 49% Mercury. Private insurance companies, who never lose money, write their policies now that pay for loss of life except in the instance of Acts of God, nuclear war, nuclear power plant disasters, and vaccinations. Don't believe that, take out your policy and read the exclusions.
Each state has school vaccination laws that require children of appropriate age to be vaccinated for several communicable diseases. State vaccination laws mandate that children be vaccinated prior to being allowed to attend public or private schools. Failure to vaccinate children can not only result in children being prohibited from attending school, but their parents or guardians can receive civil fines and criminal penalties. Schools don’t usually tell parents is that in every state, an exemption exists allowing parents to legally refuse vaccines while still allowing their children to attend school. The medical industry advocates vaccines, often demanding that parents vaccinate their children in order to remain under their doctor’s care. A sizable portion of a pediatrician’s income is derived from insurance reimbursement for vaccinations. The ever-expanding vaccination schedule that includes increasingly more expensive vaccines has been a source of increased revenues for vaccinating doctors. I just wrote about this very thing last week, (Hepatitis B vaccine) where one of the vaccines being given to NEWBORN babies right after birth is the Hep B vaccine. There is a ZERO probability of an infant contracting the disease, yet it is mandated by the CDC.
So what can you do? Nothing. You can do nothing, let yourself, your children and everyone you know and love, (and some you hate) die a long slow death filled with slowly degenerating mental capacities and developmental problems and if you are capable of remembering what you read here, sigh and say oh well. OR, you can prepare yourself, guard against crap in your food supply, refuse to let your children be vaccinated and learn what real good healthy food tastes like and change your lifestyle to include it.
Is that so hard?
