Dear MOTHERS, you are the warriors that make Monsanto pee its pants. If you cook from scratch, buy organic local food, avoid all GMO ~~ their stocks plummet and they die. You don't have to picket or take up arms: you get your butt in the kitchen and learn to cook! Your pots and pans are the weapons that will wield mortal blows to their dastardly schemes.
Let me make this personal, as the corpoRATe killers are making it
personal. Kraft's UK product contains paprika for coloring. US macaroni
product contains FD&C Yellow #5 and Yellow #6. Does this make you
angry? It would if you knew that Yellow 5 is Tartrazine, a coal tar
product and one of the worst artificial colors.
• Yellow 5 lowers levels of zinc, which is critical for proper immune functioning.
• Yellow 5 is known to cause asthma attacks. ASTHMA IS THE #1 REASON FOR SCHOOL ABSENTEEISM.
• Tartrazine is banned in Norway and was banned in Austria and Germany
until the European Parliament lifted the ban. Studies had shown that
tartrazine caused rash, dermatitis, asthma, and runny nose.
anti-depressant medications (SSRI’s) used tartrazine until patients
complained. Ironically, tartrazine increases clinical depression and
• Yellow #5 has caused such severe reactions
that the FDA requires that it be noted if contained in medication. None
of the other certified dyes have this special requirement.
FD&C Yellow #5 contains Benzidine:
• Benzidine, is a chemical that is ranked as one of the most hazardous compounds (worst 10%) to human health.
• Benzidine is known to be a carcinogen, cardiovascular or blood
toxicant, gastrointestinal or liver toxicant, immunotoxicant, kidney
toxicant, and neurotoxicant.
• Benzidine was one of the first
chemicals for which an association of occupational exposure and
increased incidence of urinary bladder cancer in humans was reported.
• Many studies have found far more Benzidine in food than the allowed 1 ppb, up to 270ppb.
FD&C Yellow 6, also called Sunset Yellow, is another coal tar
derivative widely used in medications. Sunset Yellow is banned in
Norway. Symptoms of reaction include:
• allergic reactions
• abdominal pain
US Kraft Mac 'n Cheese also contains a form of MSG, whey protein
concentrate. MSG is injected into certain lab rats to cause OBESITY. MSG
causes migraines, mood swings, violent behavior, depression.
