The Glucose Ruse to Feed You Disease, Compliments of the Grain and Pharmaceutical Industries

The Glucose Ruse to Feed You Disease

This is a matter of your health being engineered without your knowledge or consent. The engineering in this case is not good. Actually it’s creating pain where none should exist. Our food supply industry may be the most important industry concerned, when it comes to our health. As everyone knows, ‘you are what you eat’, so it’s vital that what you eat won’t make you sick. Unfortunately, for those who still masturbate their taste buds with their addiction to sugar this couldn’t be further from the truth. Our food supply has been hijacked by the same industry that treats you for the illness their food supplies. Granted the health care industry is vital to our health, but I submit that it wouldn’t be as important as it is today, if we paid more attention to what we eat. Because I now watch what I eat, I can change the “we” to “you”, meaning “you” have to watch what you eat. (All that means is that you still have an addiction to break, I don’t, I broke mine three years ago.) Because of this addiction, you’ve doomed yourself unwittingly to a lifetime of medications. That is unless you’re one of the .05% who shows no ill effects from glycation. I have yet to meet one of them. If you eat at a restaurant or buy groceries at a grocery store, you’re subject to this addiction. It’s in their food everywhere you look. You actually look for it because you love to eat it. You love their advertising. What’s not to love, it’s full of attractive people selling you what appears to provide health, but in all reality provides nothing but the opposite, as it’s responsible for most all pain, most all disease, all brain damage, all atherosclerosis, all diseases affiliated with inflammation, and this is just for starters.

Monsanto has politically engineered their dominance of your food supply and subsequent health by forcing as many farmers as they can to use Monsanto’s seed companies’ GMO seed to grow their crops. Monsanto has many seed companies. Their control over the seed industry is mirrored by their control over the pharmaceutical industry because they can use the seed companies to influence the profits of their drug companies. , owns 15 crop seed companies all selling GMO seed for their contracted farmers to grow. Five of these companies sell seed for wheat crops. That’s the seed that grows the wheat that’s ground into flour for your bread and crackers. Their contracted farmers have to grow Monsanto’s GMO seed at risk of facing legal action, if caught growing anything else. This is how Monsanto controls what goes on your table to eat. This is also how Monsanto forces you into purchasing the Celebrex, made by GD Searle Pharmaceuticals. Searle has been part of Monsanto since 1985. The Celebrex is what your doctor prescribes for your arthritis that’s caused by the glycation set up from the grain diet you’ve been on all your life. After you get the arthritis that you will inevitably get from eating their GMO grains, you’ll be begging your doctor for that prescription for the Celebrex. Then you’ll get to deal with the side effects of the Celebrex that it inevitably has and presents to the body. That’s the damage to your body from the drug side of their industry.  The damage from the crop seed side includes crops that are not only GMO seed, they are laden with Roundup, the glyphosate herbicide that works by inhibiting enzymes from doing what they supposed to do by instructing cells how to operate. Even though Monsanto claims that these enzyme inhibitors affect only targeted enzymes, the rise in cancer alone, that the nation has seen since the mid to late 80’s, has told a completely different story. The rise in these disorders is directly caused by an increase in the glycation that occurs in the blood by the high glucose laden grains this company forces their farmers to grow. That means that the food going on your table is engineered to make you need the medications that the pharmaceutical side of Monsanto’s companies sell.

 According to Wikipedia; “In December, 1997 Monsanto merged with Pharmacia and Upjohn.[14] The agricultural division became a wholly owned subsidiary of the “new” Pharmacia; Monsanto’s medical research division, which included products such as Celebrex.[61]

GD Searle and Pharmacia are the other side of Monsanto’s multinational chemical companies,  that includes now,  Pfizer and Upjohn, as well. GD Searle was purchased by Monsanto in 1985 two years after Monsanto started dabbling in GMO crops.  In 1993 GD Searle file for a patent for Celebrex, its widely used arthritis drug. I’ll bet you didn’t know that it is Monsanto’s seed companies that force their contracted farmers to grow GMO seed designed to make you need their Celebrex. Is this what you thought you were buying when you bought those corn chips last time? Was this what you thought you were buying when you purchased those pretzels? Whether it was or not, that’s what you got. You also got all the rest of the damage that glycation does to the body, which includes cataracts, atherosclerosis, cancer and dementia as well. You’re also subjecting yourself to the hunger cycle, probably the worst manifestation of a carb diet. The more carbs you eat, the hungrier your get. That’s a cycle that can’t be broken if you don’t stop the fuel that feeds it. Stopping the fuel is the only way to stop the glycation. That means that it’s the only way to stop the inflammation, which means it’s the only way to stop the illness and disorder that glycation is responsible for.

This study done on glycative effects and Alzheimer’s disease was completed in 2005. Glycation of cholesterol into amyloid plaque was researched in this study. It showed that the plaque was responsible for Alzheimer’s disease. Where were the warnings then? It’s now 15 years later and millions of people have died from Alzheimer’s disease. The question I ask is why? Why weren’t we notified of this revelation 14 years ago? It’s been in the archives of PubMed since then. Why the delay? How many more must die before this news of the glycative effects of glucose, is released to the media to inform the public of this devastating news?

This study done on the effects of glucose on glycation was done in September 1985. Have you seen or heard of any part of this report prior to today? I haven’t. I had to search for it. The question I have is why wasn’t the public notified of this revelation? Were the research results suppressed so as to hide the truth from the public? I have to wonder.

About this same time, according to Wikipedia; In 1985, Monsanto acquired G. D. Searle & Company, a life sciences company focusing on pharmaceuticals, agriculture and animal health. In 1993, its Searle division filed a patent application for Celebrex,[42][43] which in 1998 became the first selective COX‑2 inhibitor to be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).[44] Celebrex became a blockbuster drug and was often mentioned as a key reason for Pfizer‘s acquisition of Monsanto’s pharmaceutical business in 2002.[45]

What wasn’t disclosed publicly was the benefit that the stockholders retained when the merger was finalized. Stockholders of Pharmacia retained 23% of their control in the new Pfizer. You wouldn’t think that would have an influence in what they do to grow their customer base to sell more drugs, would you? Regardless of what you think, it does, and they do care. Monsanto sends this industry most of their customers just from the damage their food does to those who eat it. This industry has grown to accommodate those customers, mostly with their diabetes industry and ever expanding interests in dementia. Inflammation,  cancer and atherosclerosis, just for starters.

Was it coincidence? I have to wonder. Since then Monsanto has made moves to control all of the grain industry in America, by contracting farmers to grow no other seed than their own GMO seed. This forces the farmers who do this, to spray massive amounts of herbicide on those crops. The herbicide they spray is Monsanto’s Roundup, a glyphosate herbicide that works by inhibiting the actions of enzymes. Enzymes are important proteins in the body as they’re cell signaling proteins that instruct cells how to operate. This is important because it’s that instruction that the cells need to not become glycation. Otherwise, without that enzyme, you create inflammation. Inflammation is the foundation of all modern diseases. This is why grains are slowly killing those who eat them, cutting their lives short, to the tune of 2,684 deaths every day, that can be attributed to these killing field grains. These signaling cells are cells like hormones and cytokines that affect your body’s functions. If these aren’t working because of any enzyme inhibitor floating around in your blood, it’s going to lead to glycation and disease. This is the scary part of this story, if you eat bread, crackers, corn chips or anything flour is used in (whether it’s wheat flour or corn flour), your eating this herbicide along with your bread and cornpone.

Did you have any idea that this was being done to you without your consent or knowledge? I didn’t until I did this research. Did you have time to do your research? Why not? If you couldn’t, wouldn’t you think that we need some regulation in the field? The FDA and the USDA are supposed to provide that. With Monsanto’s control of each of those agencies, how much honest regulation do you think could take place? The regulation that does take place, takes place only for the benefit of Monsanto and Pfizer, not the consumer. We end up the lab rats in  this experiment. In my opinion, this is a failed experiment and should be shut down as soon as possible.

This study was complete in September 1985, about the same time Monsanto acquired G.D. Searle Pharmaceuticals. 8 years later they filed for a patent for Celebrex, their arthritis pain killer drug. Celebrex is a Cox 2 NSAID with the following side effects and concerns, according to Searle, and I’m listing all of them;

Contraindications

NSAIDs may be used with caution by people with the following conditions:[6]

Irritable bowel syndrome[6]

  • Persons who are over age 50, and who have a family history of GI (gastrointestinal) problems[6]
  • Persons who have had past GI problems from NSAID use[6]

NSAIDs should usually be avoided by people with the following conditions:[6]

Adverse effects

The widespread use of NSAIDs has meant that the adverse effects of these drugs have become increasingly common. Use of NSAIDs increases risk of having a range of gastrointestinal(GI) problems.[16] When NSAIDs are used for pain management after surgery they cause increased risk of kidney problems.[17]

An estimated 10–20% of NSAID patients experience dyspepsia. In the 1990s high doses of prescription NSAIDs were associated with serious upper gastrointestinal adverse events, including bleeding.[18] Over the past decade, deaths associated with gastric bleeding have declined.

NSAIDs, like all drugs, may interact with other medications. For example, concurrent use of NSAIDs and quinolones may increase the risk of quinolones’ adverse central nervous system effects, including seizure.[19][20]

There is argument over the benefits and risks of NSAIDs for treating chronic musculoskeletal pain. Each drug has a benefit-risk profile [21] and balancing the risk of no treatment with the competing potential risks of various therapies is the clinician’s responsibility.

Combinational risk

If a COX-2 inhibitor is taken, a traditional NSAID (prescription or over-the-counter) should not be taken at the same time.[22][not in citation given] In addition, people on daily aspirin therapy (e.g., for reducing cardiovascular risk) must be careful if they also use other NSAIDs, as these may inhibit the cardio protective effects of aspirin.

Rofecoxib (Vioxx) was shown to produce significantly fewer gastrointestinal adverse drug reactions (ADRs) compared with naproxen.[23] This study, the VIGOR trial, raised the issue of the cardiovascular safety of the coxibs. A statistically significant increase in the incidence of myocardial infarctions was observed in patients on rofecoxib. Further data, from the APPROVe trial, showed a statistically significant relative risk of cardiovascular events of 1.97 versus placebo[24]—which caused a worldwide withdrawal of rofecoxib in October 2004.

Use of methotrexate together with NSAIDS in rheumatoid arthritis is safe, if adequate monitoring is done.[25]

Cardiovascular

NSAIDs aside from aspirin, both newer selective COX-2 inhibitors and traditional anti-inflammatories, increase the risk of myocardial infarction and stroke.[26][27] They are not recommended in those who have had a previous heart attack as they increase the risk of death and/or recurrent MI.[28]Evidence indicates that naproxen may be the least harmful out of these.[27][29]

NSAIDs aside from (low-dose) aspirin are associated with a doubled risk of heart failure in people without a history of cardiac disease.[29] In people with such a history, use of NSAIDs (aside from low-dose aspirin) was associated with a more than 10-fold increase in heart failure.[30] If this link is proven causal, researchers estimate that NSAIDs would be responsible for up to 20 percent of hospital admissions for congestive heart failure. In people with heart failure, NSAIDs increase mortality risk (hazard ratio) by approximately 1.2–1.3 for naproxen and ibuprofen, 1.7 for rofecoxib and celecoxib, and 2.1 for diclofenac.[31]

On 9 July 2015, the FDA toughened warnings of increased heart attack and stroke risk associated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID). Aspirin is an NSAID but is not affected by the new warnings.[32]

Possible erectile dysfunction risk

A 2005 Finnish study linked long term (over 3 months) use of NSAIDs with an increased risk of erectile dysfunction.[33] This study was correlational only, and depended solely on self-reports (questionnaires).

A 2011 publication [34] in the Journal of Urology received widespread publicity.[35] According to this study, men who used NSAIDs regularly were at significantly increased risk of erectile dysfunction. A link between NSAID use and erectile dysfunction still existed after controlling for several conditions. However, the study was observational and not controlled, with low original participation rate, potential participation bias, and other uncontrolled factors. The authors warned against drawing any conclusion regarding cause.[36]

Gastrointestinal

The main adverse drug reactions (ADRs) associated with NSAID use relate to direct and indirect irritation of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. NSAIDs cause a dual assault on the GI tract: the acidic molecules directly irritate the gastric mucosa, and inhibition of COX-1 and COX-2 reduces the levels of protective prostaglandins. Inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis in the GI tract causes increased gastric acid secretion, diminished bicarbonate secretion, diminished mucus secretion and diminished trophic[clarification needed] effects on epithelial mucosa.

Common gastrointestinal ADRs include:[5]

Clinical NSAID ulcers are related to the systemic effects of NSAID administration. Such damage occurs irrespective of the route of administration of the NSAID (e.g., oral, rectal, or parenteral) and can occur even in patients with achlorhydria.[38]

Ulceration risk increases with therapy duration, and with higher doses. To minimise GI ADRs, it is prudent to use the lowest effective dose for the shortest period of time—a practice that studies show is often not followed. Recent studies show that over 50% of patients who take NSAIDs have sustained some mucosal damage to their small intestine.[39]

There are also some differences in the propensity of individual agents to cause gastrointestinal ADRs. Indomethacinketoprofen and piroxicam appear to have the highest prevalence of gastric ADRs, while ibuprofen (lower doses) and diclofenac appear to have lower rates.[5]

Certain NSAIDs, such as aspirin, have been marketed in enteric-coated formulations that manufacturers claim reduce the incidence of gastrointestinal ADRs. Similarly, some believe that rectal formulations may reduce gastrointestinal ADRs. However, consistent with the systemic mechanism of such ADRs, and in clinical practice, these formulations have not demonstrated a reduced risk of GI ulceration.[5]

Commonly, gastric (but not necessarily intestinal) adverse effects can be reduced through suppressing acid production, by concomitant use of a proton pump inhibitor, e.g., omeprazoleesomeprazole; or the prostaglandin analogue misoprostol. Misoprostol is itself associated with a high incidence of gastrointestinal ADRs (diarrhea). While these techniques may be effective, they are expensive for maintenance therapy.

Inflammatory bowel disease

NSAIDs should be used with caution in individuals with inflammatory bowel disease (e.g., Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis) due to their tendency to cause gastric bleeding and form ulceration in the gastric lining. Pain relievers such as paracetamol (also known as acetaminophen) or drugs containing codeine (which slows down bowel activity) are safer medications for pain relief in IBD.[citation needed]

Renal

NSAIDs are also associated with a fairly high incidence of renal adverse drug reactions (ADRs). The mechanism of these renal ADRs is due to changes in renal haemodynamics (kidney blood flow), ordinarily mediated by prostaglandins, which are affected by NSAIDs. Prostaglandins normally cause vasodilation of the afferent arterioles of the glomeruli. This helps maintain normal glomerular perfusion and glomerular filtration rate (GFR), an indicator of renal function. This is particularly important in renal failure where the kidney is trying to maintain renal perfusion pressure by elevated angiotensin II levels. At these elevated levels, angiotensin II also constricts the afferent arteriole into the glomerulus in addition to the efferent arteriole it normally constricts. Prostaglandins serve to dilate the afferent arteriole; by blocking this prostaglandin-mediated effect, particularly in renal failure, NSAIDs cause unopposed constriction of the afferent arteriole and decreased RPF (renal perfusion pressure).

Common ADRs associated with altered renal function include:[5]

Salt (Sodium) and fluid retention

Hypertension(high blood pressure)

These agents may also cause renal impairment, especially in combination with other nephrotoxic agents. Renal failure is especially a risk if the patient is also concomitantly taking an ACE inhibitor (which removes angiotensin II’s vasoconstriction of the efferent arteriole) and a diuretic (which drops plasma volume, and thereby RPF)—the so-called “triple whammy” effect.[40]

In rarer instances NSAIDs may also cause more severe renal conditions:[5]

Interstitial nephritis

Nephrotic syndrome

Acute renal failure

Acute tubular necrosis

Renal papillary necrosis

NSAIDs in combination with excessive use of phenacetinand/or paracetamol (acetaminophen) may lead to analgesic nephropathy.[41]

Photosensitivity

Photosensitivity is a commonly overlooked adverse effect of many of the NSAIDs.[42] The 2-arylpropionic acids are the most likely to produce photosensitivity reactions, but other NSAIDs have also been implicated including piroxicamdiclofenac and benzydamine.

Benoxaprofen, since withdrawn due to its hepatotoxicity, was the most photoactive NSAID observed. The mechanism of photosensitivity, responsible for the high photoactivity of the 2-arylpropionic acids, is the ready decarboxylation of the carboxylic acid moiety. The specific absorbance characteristics of the different chromophoric 2-aryl substituents, affects the decarboxylation mechanism. While ibuprofen has weak absorption, it has been reported as a weak photosensitising agent.[citation needed]

During pregnancy

NSAIDs are not recommended during pregnancy, particularly during the third trimester. While NSAIDs as a class are not direct teratogens, they may cause premature closure of the fetal ductus arteriosus and renal ADRs in the fetus. Additionally, they are linked with premature birth[43] and miscarriage.[44][45] Aspirin, however, is used together with heparin in pregnant women with antiphospholipid antibodies.[46] Additionally, Indomethacin is used in pregnancy to treat polyhydramnios by reducing fetal urine production via inhibiting fetal renal blood flow.

In contrast, paracetamol (acetaminophen) is regarded as being safe and well-tolerated during pregnancy, but Leffers et al. released a study in 2010 indicating that there may be associated male infertility in the unborn.[47][48] Doses should be taken as prescribed, due to risk of hepatotoxicity with overdoses.[49]

In France, the country’s health agency contraindicates the use of NSAIDs, including aspirin, after the sixth month of pregnancy.[50]

Allergy/allergy-like hypersensitivity reactions

A variety of allergic or allergic-like NSAID hypersensitivity reactions follow the ingestion of NSAIDs. These hypersensitivity reactions differ from the other adverse reactions listed here which are toxicity reactions, i.e. unwanted reactions that result from the pharmacological action of a drug, are dose-related, and can occur in any treated individual; hypersensitivity reactions are idiosyncratic reactions to a drug.[51] Some NSAID hypersensitivity reactions are truly allergic in origin: 1) repetitive IgE-mediated urticarial skin eruptions, angioedema, and anaphylaxis following immediately to hours after ingesting one structural type of NSAID but not after ingesting structurally unrelated NSAIDs; and 2)Comparatively mild to moderately severe T cell-mediated delayed onset (usually more than 24 hour), skin reactions such as maculopapular rashfixed drug eruptionsphotosensitivity reactions, delayed urticaria, and contact dermatitis; or 3) far more severe and potentially life-threatening t-cell mediated delayed systemic reactions such as the DRESS syndromeacute generalized exanthematous pustulosis, the Stevens–Johnson syndrome, and toxic epidermal necrolysis. Other NSAID hypersensitivity reactions are allergy-like symptoms but do not involve true allergic mechanisms; rather, they appear due to the ability of NSAIDs to alter the metabolism of arachidonic acid in favor of forming metabolites that promote allergic symptoms. Afflicted individuals may be abnormally sensitive to these provocative metabolites and/or overproduce them and typically are susceptible to a wide range of structurally dissimilar NSAIDs, particularly those that inhibit COX1. Symptoms, which develop immediately to hours after ingesting any of various NSAIDs that inhibit COX-1, are: 1)exacerbations of asthmatic and rhinitis (see aspirin-induced asthma) symptoms in individuals with a history of asthma or rhinitis and 2) exacerbation or first-time development of wheals and/or angioedema in individuals with or without a history of chronic urticarial lesions or angioedema.[15]

Contraindications

NSAIDs may be used with caution by people with the following conditions:[6]

Irritable bowel syndrome[6]

Persons who are over age 50, and who have a family history of GI (gastrointestinal) problems[6]

Persons who have had past GI problems from NSAID use[6]

NSAIDs should usually be avoided by people with the following conditions:[6]

Peptic ulceror stomach bleeding[6]

Additionally, they are linked with premature birth[43] and miscarriage.[44][45] Aspirin, however, is used together with heparin in pregnant women with antiphospholipid antibodies.[46] Additionally, Indomethacin is used in pregnancy to treat polyhydramnios by reducing fetal urine production via inhibiting fetal renal blood flow.

In contrast, paracetamol (acetaminophen) is regarded as being safe and well-tolerated during pregnancy, but Leffers et al. released a study in 2010 indicating that there may be associated male infertility in the unborn.[47][48] Doses should be taken as prescribed, due to risk of hepatotoxicity with overdoses.[49]

In France, the country’s health agency contraindicates the use of NSAIDs, including aspirin, after the sixth month of pregnancy.[50]

Allergy/allergy-like hypersensitivity reactions

A variety of allergic or allergic-like NSAID hypersensitivity reactions follow the ingestion of NSAIDs. These hypersensitivity reactions differ from the other adverse reactions listed here which are toxicity reactions, i.e. unwanted reactions that result from the pharmacological action of a drug, are dose-related, and can occur in any treated individual; hypersensitivity reactions are idiosyncratic reactions to a drug.[51] Some NSAID hypersensitivity reactions are truly allergic in origin: 1) repetitive IgE-mediated urticarial skin eruptions, angioedema, and anaphylaxis following immediately to hours after ingesting one structural type of NSAID but not after ingesting structurally unrelated NSAIDs; and 2)Comparatively mild to moderately severe T cell-mediated delayed onset (usually more than 24 hour), skin reactions such as maculopapular rashfixed drug eruptionsphotosensitivity reactions, delayed urticaria, and contact dermatitis; or 3) far more severe and potentially life-threatening t-cell mediated delayed systemic reactions such as the DRESS syndromeacute generalized exanthematous pustulosis, the Stevens–Johnson syndrome, and toxic epidermal necrolysis. Other NSAID hypersensitivity reactions are allergy-like symptoms but do not involve true allergic mechanisms; rather, they appear due to the ability of NSAIDs to alter the metabolism of arachidonic acid in favor of forming metabolites that promote allergic symptoms. Afflicted individuals may be abnormally sensitive to these provocative metabolites and/or overproduce them and typically are susceptible to a wide range of structurally dissimilar NSAIDs, particularly those that inhibit COX1. Symptoms, which develop immediately to hours after ingesting any of various NSAIDs that inhibit COX-1, are: 1)exacerbations of asthmatic and rhinitis (see aspirin-induced asthma) symptoms in individuals with a history of asthma or rhinitis and 2) exacerbation or first-time development of wheals and/or angioedema in individuals with or without a history of chronic urticarial lesions or angioedema.[15]

Other

Common adverse drug reactions (ADR), other than listed above, include: raised liver enzymesheadachedizziness.[5]Uncommon ADRs include: hyperkalaemia, confusion, bronchospasm, rash.[5] Rapid and severe swelling of the face and/or body. Ibuprofen may also rarely cause irritable bowel syndrome symptoms. NSAIDs are also implicated in some cases of Stevens–Johnson syndrome.

Most NSAIDs penetrate poorly into the central nervous system(CNS). However, the COX enzymes are expressed constitutively in some areas of the CNS, meaning that even limited penetration may cause adverse effects such as somnolence and dizziness.

In very rare cases, ibuprofen can cause aseptic meningitis.[52]

As with other drugs, allergies to NSAIDs might exist. While many allergies are specific to one NSAID, up to 1 in 5 people may have unpredictable cross-reactive allergic responses to other NSAIDs as well.[53]

Drug interactions

NSAIDs reduce renal blood flow and thereby decrease the efficacy of diuretics, and inhibit the elimination of lithium and methotrexate.[54]

NSAIDs cause hypocoagulability, which may be serious when combined with other drugs that also decrease blood clotting, such as warfarin.[54]

NSAIDs may aggravate hypertension (high blood pressure) and thereby antagonize the effect of antihypertensives,[54] such as ACE Inhibitors.[55]

NSAIDs may interfere and reduce efficiency of SSRIantidepressants.[56][57]

Various widely used nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) enhance endocannabinoid signaling by blocking the anandamide-degrading membrane enzyme fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH).[58]

How’s that for a warning label?  Did it have enough side effects for you? Think you might need more meds after taking this one? That label was 4094 words long. How many of those do you read? How do you know what you’re doing to your body if you don’t know what you’re putting into it? Do you think it coincidence that Monsanto started their GMO seed about the same time that glycation started being researched? Since much of this kind of research is funded by the industry it affects, I wouldn’t doubt that Monsanto had a hand in this research. This would allow them to immediately file these studies on glycation so that doctors and other scientists couldn’t find them to review. Yet each and every one of these 17,000+ studies have been vetted and examined by the NIH and PubMed. What I want to know is, why weren’t warnings about the glycative affects of glucose revealed at that time? Did Monsanto have anything to do with it?

The above list is the warning label for the adverse effects of Celebrex. Do you take Celebrex? Have you read the above warnings? Use of this drug can only lead to the use of more and more drugs. What do you think that would do for the profits for Monsanto? Do you still think this is coincidence? From renal failure, to the increased risk of myocardial infarction and stroke,[26][27] this drug brings on more drug use, simply so people can get away from their pain, pain caused by consumption of Monsanto’s grains. To me this is completely an unsustainable cycle. It’s a cycle of death and disease, leaving only, people in pain. Where is the sense in keeping this addiction?

Celebrex isn’t the only drug that leads to this interdependent drug abuse orchestrated by Monsanto, Pfizer, Bayer and Syngenta. There is a profitable reason that this cycle continues. Boatloads of investors depend on it. Too bad they don’t know what it’s doing to the society that they have to life in and with.

I propose that we tell Monsanto how we feel about this, not with our voices, but with our mouths in what we eat. Quit eating grains. They’re responsible for nearly all the pain you experience (with the exception of physical injuries).Grains and the glycation they bring, bring also all inflammation that influences all diseases. Stop buying bread, crackers, cookies, anything that flour is used in, stop using it, forever. That’s the only way you can start to free yourself from the addiction. You have to stop buying their junk food. Their junk food is making you sick. It’s making you sicker by the day. Stop it, you have the power to stop it and by stopping it, it gives you power, far more power than what you ever could have imagined you would have.

According to the BJM (British Medical Journal) on Cox 2 inhibitors such as Celebrex,  Selective COX 2 inhibitors are associated with a moderate increase in the risk of vascular events, as are high dose regimens of ibuprofen and diclofenac, but high dose naproxen is not associated with such an excess. How often do you need to take an Advil for your headache? Were you aware of what that painkiller does to your kidneys and liver or how much it increased your odds of having a heart attack? Why weren’t you made aware of that when it was sold to you? Maybe it was. Every drug commercial is primarily a dissertation of the adverse effects and precautions and contraindications each drug has. They all have to include this in all advertising. You’d think that that would dissuade anyone from buying into what has turned out to be nothing more than a perception of health. What drug use leads to is really not relief but continued drug use. It’s called ongoing treatment. Every hospital takes part in it. This is the effect of a society on carbohydrates….a society on drugs.

In all, there were 11,833 studies on PubMed, on the effects of glucose glycating proteins, hemoglobin, and cholesterol dating back to March, 1984. {There were 17628 studies done on PMC.) Incidentally, that was one month after I was released from the hospital after spending a month in a coma and suffering two strokes while comatose. I could have never come back this far without Dr Perlmutter’s help and advice that it was the AGEs that were hindering my recovery. Again, I have to thank you, Dr Perlmutter.

With having the evidence for over 30 years, why hasn’t the public been told about glycation or the AGEs they create prior to Dr Perlmutter’s book, Grain Brain? It’s those AGEs that are at the root of all modern diseases. If this was uncovered 30+ years ago, why have we just found out about it from the bestselling books from two doctors? Was someone trying to hide something? My guess is yes.

This is Monsanto’s path to power and freedom. Their freedom is to wreak whatever havoc they can on your health by masturbating your taste buds with their glucose laden products, so you’ll be buying their pharmaceuticals in the near future. By near, I mean, it only takes a couple days before you’re indebted (addicted). If you want true power and freedom, you can have it in two weeks. That’s how long it takes to break the addiction. Or you can do it with a fast in 3 days.

USDA’s Encouragement of Current Health Crisis

USDA’s Encouragement of Current Health Crisis

With the same co-mingling of execs and offices of the USDA and Monsanto, as between the FDA and Monsanto, Monsanto has set itself up to be producer and regulator in full control over all of the food that we are forced to put on our tables. That is if you’re forced to eat at a restaurant or buy food at a grocery store. If you’re one of those people, your food is more than likely, a product of Monsanto. It’s also a product of Monsanto’s chemicals, chiefly their herbicide Roundup, a glyphosate herbicide that inhibits how enzymes work in the environment as well as your body.

That wouldn’t be so bad if Monsanto didn’t force all farmers to grow their crop seed each and every year.  That gives them full control over every muffin you sink your teeth into, even those bran muffins, the ones that are supposed to be so healthy.

What Monsanto knows that they’re not telling the USDA, is that the corn, wheat and soy beans that their farmers grow for us are at the root of most all glycation that occurs in the body. What they’re afraid of the USDA knowing, is that this glycation is at the root of all modern diseases, from atherosclerosis to hypertension, from arthritis to IBS or irritable bowel syndrome, to dementia including Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. All of these diseases and disorders are treated by the drug industry that Monsanto owned as well. That’s what’s scary…very scary. The company that’s responsible for your food is the same company that treats you for the ailments their food brings. To me that’s criminal. Now, Bayer wants to buy out Monsanto. What do you think that will do to your food supply? Bayer is a German company, you know.

Monsanto doesn’t want either the USDA or the FDA to be too aware of what their food does, yet all of the studies mentioned above are available through PubMed. If I have access to these studies, I know they do as well. What I don’t know is what do they refuse to look at them? They only have to look at a few. I found two or three damning studies on the first page of search returns for the term, glycation. Glycation has a nasty tendency to muck up everything in the body that blood affects. Monsanto doesn’t want the USDA or the FDA to realize this.  Their practice of striving for total control over our food source drives the profits of their crop seed companies, (of which they’re dozens). Having that control over our food gives them control over our drug use, as it’s their food that makes us sick. That makes us require their medications to treat the disease their food gives those who eat it.

They’ve tried denying that their food is as dangerous as it is by publishing their own research reports showing different results that “prove” their food is healthy, when it’s not. It’s obvious that they don’t want this information known by either the USDA or the FDA. Fortunately for Monsanto, they already have they own retired execs running the FDA and the USDA. Apparently it’s not in their best interest to make this information known to the public. I’m sure they fear the consequences of their actions, for producing a food this dangerous. I would be if I were them.

With all the agencies the USDA has control over, it’s no wonder that they can’t see that the food they recommend we eat, has had more studies done on the glycation of it, than any other food. We’ve learned that glycation is the real poisoning of America, and with glycation being involved in every modern disease known to man (simply because of the glycation is causes), glycation is something that our food industry should be working to stem as it’s this glycation that’s at the root of all “modern” diseases.

FYI fact: There were 50,000 food safety inspections in 1972. That was reduced to just over 9,000 in 2008.

If there were only 9000 in 2008, reduced from 50,000 in 1972, when the threat level was much lower, the FDA is only succeeding at failing us on a unprecedented basis. I’m sure this is due to funding cutbacks from the government but I’m also sure it involves something related to departmental offices being run by corporate management brought in from corporations they’re supposed to regulate, proving once again that money talks and (unfortunately) the bottom line is what wins here and the bottom line is greed. If the USDA and the FDA can allow a food this dangerous through its monitoring, I’m afraid to even think about what else has snuck through?  The beef industry has already displayed their contempt for regulation through the mass production of beef that their industry is responsible for, especially in the last 30 years. (Including that beef that’s imported from Paraguay, the most GMO soy loaded feed made for feed lots.) That’s a whole other story about how this industry is ruining the lives in our South American neighbor by poisoning their crops and the lives of their farmers. This is just so you can have cheap beef.

According to their Website, USDA.gov their agencies and offices include the following (I’m listing all of them so you’ll know the enormity of this agency). It has to be enormous, 19 agencies and 17 offices, all designed to protect you. You health is at stake and a majority of this Departments’ agencies and offices are failing to keep your food safe for consumption.

AGENCIES:

I have to wonder if they check the quality and safety of the grain they’re approving for consumption, whether it’s for livestock feed or human consumption. Are they aware that what they’re approving is contaminated? I’m curious as to how they grade this substandard grain that’s putting so many people in the hospital? Evidently they not detecting the Roundup that’s it’s laden with.

Agricultural Research Service (ARS)

 

ARS is USDA’s principal in-house research agency. ARS leads America towards a better future through agricultural research and information.

The question I’d like to ask this department is how much research do you pay attention to when you recommend what food to eat. Does your research cover the effects of grains after they’ve been consumed? They claim to be interested in nutrition. Are they? Or are they interested in their own bottom line with their stock options with Monsanto?

Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS)

APHIS provides leadership in ensuring the health and care of animals and plants. The agency improves agricultural productivity and competitiveness and contributes to the national economy and the public health.

(APHIS) is responsible for protecting and promoting U.S. agricultural health, administering the Animal Welfare Act, and carrying out wildlife damage management activities.

These are the offices that are supposed to ensure that the food you eat on a daily basis, no matter where it comes from or where you buy it (grocery store or restaurant), is going to keep you healthy. Have you ever considered the value of their work or the quality of the food they approve for your table? With the high rates of Atherosclerosis, cancer, inflammatory diseases and dementia, it appears that they are failing on a massive scale.

(Unless you were looking at it from a corporate point of view where this is an investors dream, this is a consumer’s nightmare.) Regardless of how unscrupulous this is, it’s going to continue to happen as long as this agency recommends the consumption of these foods.

Myplate.gov, which is administered by the CNPP, has replaced the food pyramid for our dietary guidelines. Myplate.gov is now our dietary guidelines and it still insists that grains remain a part of our diet. I’ve asked them about this and have received one reply from someone who didn’t even know what glycation is or what it is responsible for. I’m still waiting for my reply for that and another email I’ve not so recently sent them.

 

 

Economic Research Service (ERS)

ERS is USDA’s principal social science research agency. Each year, ERS communicates research results and socioeconomic indicators via briefings, analyses for policymakers and their staffs, market analysis updates, and major reports. (ERS) provides economic research and information to inform public and private decision making on economic and policy issues related to agriculture, food, natural resources, and rural America. Through a broad range of products, ERS research provides not only facts, but also expert economic analysis of many critical issues facing farmers, agribusiness, consumers, and policymakers. ERS expertise helps these stakeholders conduct business, formulate policy, or just learn about agriculture, food, natural resources, and rural America.

These are the offices regulate the safety of our food. I wonder if they are aware of the dangers of grains in the food supply. One would think that they are, but with 109 people dying every hour, I have to wonder.

 

Farm Service Agency (FSA)

The Farm Service Agency implements agricultural policy, administers credit and loan programs, and manages conservation, commodity, disaster and farm marketing programs through a national network of offices. (FSA) administers farm commodity, crop insurance, credit, environmental, conservation, and emergency assistance programs for farmers and ranchers.

Programs and service highlights:

Farm Loan Programs

Disaster Assistance

This is the agency that watches over the farmer and their needs and concerns. Their interest doesn’t concern the safety of the food we eat or how nutritious it is. They’re simply concerned about the farmer’s ability to grow it. They offer the assistance programs that help fund the industry.

 

Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) 

 

FNS increases food security and reduces hunger in partnership with cooperating organizations by providing children and low-income people access to food, a healthy diet, and nutrition education in a manner that supports American agriculture and inspires public confidence. (FNS) administers the food and nutrition assistance programs in the U.S. Department of Agriculture. FNS provides children and needy families with better access to food and a more healthful diet through its programs and nutrition education efforts.

Nutrition Education

 

This is the agency that makes sure the disadvantaged have an adequate food supply. One of their major concerns is to distribute the grains that are used in our food supply to those who don’t have the ability to purchase their own. This ensures that everyone who lives in this disadvantaged lifestyle doesn’t get the proper nutrition they need to sustain healthy living and in turn, makes them dependant on the pharmaceutical industry for their future health. Don’t forget that pharmaceuticals only lead to more and ultimately more pharmaceuticals. This is the never-ending cycle if dependence that this industry wants to keep the public in. This cycle is at the government expense though, and that means that we, the taxpayer get to foot the bill.

It’s too bad that they don’t realize to conquer hunger you must first conquer the hunger cycle. If the USDA read any of the reports in the PubMed or PMC archives, they’d know that it’s the grains and sugar in the diet that create hunger cycle more than anything else. If you were on a ketogenic diet, you could see the logic in this statement, to stop hunger you have to stop the hunger cycle.

This is where their logic is flawed; they think that feeding hungry people grains to fill their bellies will take care of the hunger. It won’t, it will only make them hungrier; it’s the law of carbohydrate consumption, it a continuous hunger cycle that you’re really condemning them to.  You’re also condemning them to a lifetime of medication need.

 

Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS)

FSIS enhances public health and well-being by protecting the public from food borne illness and ensuring that the nation’s meat, poultry and egg products are safe, wholesome, and correctly packaged. (FSIS) is the public health agency in the U.S. Department of Agriculture responsible for ensuring that the nation’s commercial supply of meat, poultry, and egg products is safe, wholesome, and correctly labeled and packaged, as required by the Federal Meat Inspection Act, the Poultry Products Inspection Act, and the Egg Products Inspection Act.

If this agency had anything to do with the production of sugar and grains, I’d be in contact with them. But they don’t.

It appears that this following agency ensures that the poison we grow in the US makes its way around the world to infect as many people as possible.

 

Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS)

FAS works to improve foreign market access for U.S. products. This USDA agency operates programs designed to build new markets and improve the competitive position of U.S. agriculture in the global marketplace. (FAS) is responsible for collecting, analyzing, and disseminating information about global supply and demand, trade trends, and market opportunities. FAS seeks improved market access for U.S. products; administers export financing and market development programs; provides export services; carries out food aid and market-related technical assistance programs; and provides linkages to world resources and international organizations.

This may be done to ensure the viability of the pharmaceutical industry, as all of those grains foods can only lead to more pharmaceutical needs. If you can spread this problem around the world, what do you think that would do for your profit margin, if you’re a pharmaceutical company? (Evidently Monsanto thinks the same way.) Maybe that’s why we shouldn’t allow anyone with corporate ties in any way, to work in any of our regulatory agencies. That would mean that government employees couldn’t own any corporate stock. I wonder how many do today. Do you think that could constitute any conflicts in interest?

 

Forest Service (FS)

FS sustains the health, diversity and productivity of the Nation’s forests and grasslands to meet the needs of present and future generations. (FS) administers programs for applying sound conservation and utilization practices to natural resources of the national forests and national grasslands, for promoting these practices on all forest lands through cooperation with states and private landowners, and for carrying out extensive forest and range research.

I doubt this agency even knows what they’re approving when they approve this grain for consumption. If they did, they wouldn’t allow this to slip right past their noses without smelling anything rotten?

 

National Agricultural Library (NAL)

NAL ensures and enhances access to agricultural information for a better quality of life.

One would think with all the departments in this agency, at least one would understand the dangers of grains. It may not be a problem of whether or not any one knows about it, it may be a problem of anybody caring enough to do anything about it.

 

National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS)

NASS serves the basic agricultural and rural data needs of the country by providing objective, important and accurate statistical information and services to farmers, ranchers, agribusinesses and public officials. This data is vital to monitoring the ever-changing agricultural sector and carrying out farm policy. (NASS) is responsible for conducting monthly and annual surveys and preparing official USDA data and estimates of production, supply, prices, and other information necessary to maintain orderly agricultural operations.

I wonder if any of their statistics show the impact that this food has had on our society as a whole, in the way it’s influenced the health and medical industries with the boom of business it’s created for the pharmaceutical industry. Does the government understand that the more they support the industrial GMO farming in this case, the more it’s costing them having to treat people for the disorders that this industry is imposing upon those who buy into it? How many people do you know that didn’t have their toast or bagel this morning? How many of those do you think will go without a sandwich at lunch?

This is not a small problem. It exists everywhere. This is the result of politically engineering your food supply by the industry that supplies it. This is the result of self policing. Our problem is, it’s created a land of sugar junkies clamoring for their next hit, wherever they can find it. (It’ll probably be the next drive through.) You unwittingly buy right into this with every Big Mac you buy. That comfort you’re buying now leads only to huge amounts of discomfort in the very near future. I’ll start with headaches and stomach aches. It’ll end with your body’s choice of disease starting with atherosclerosis and Alzheimer’s, and ending with cancer or cardiovascular disease. This is a cycle that must change.

I add my name to the list of many trying to get the FDA and the USDA to act on this concern. Spearheading this list were Dr William Davis and Dr David Perlmutter in 2010 and 2012, with their books Wheat Belly  and Grain Brain.  They are still trying to right this wrong. After being on both sides of this argument and experiencing all the pain that the other side has to offer, I know for a fact that the only avenue out of this dilemma, is to go to a paleo or ketogenic diet. I just wish the FDA and the USDA could understand this.

 

National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA)

NIFA’s unique mission is to advance knowledge for agriculture, the environment, human health and well-being, and communities by supporting research, education, and extension programs in the Land-Grant University System and other partner organizations. NIFA doesn’t perform actual research, education, and extension but rather helps fund it at the state and local level and provides program leadership in these areas. (NIFA) is an agency within the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), part of the executive branch of the Federal Government. Congress created NIFA through the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008. NIFA replaced the former Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service (CSREES), which had been in existence since 1994.

I clicked on the research Link to find that they’re pretty proud of their involvement in peanut research, claiming that; North Carolina A&T research makes peanuts safer to eat.

Maybe if they were to stop and realize that peanuts, like all legumes are grains, they would understand that like grains, peanuts ultimately break down to glucose. They’re just not cereal grains, so they inflict the harm slower, but they still have the capacity to inflict harm. Because they’re harder to digest and do have more fiber than the starchy cereal grains, they impact the glycemic load much less, which is what keeps the blood glucose more even over time. Any doctor will tell you that will make you healthier. The problem is, healthier in this case, is still unhealthy.

 

I submit that it’s not peanuts that create the allergic reaction, It’s the glucose. Like celiac disease with wheat, peanut allergies operate the same way because they ultimately break down to glucose and then to methylglyoxal, the most glycating substance the body creates from carbs. I contend that it’s in this substance that causes the allergic reaction. (If it weren’t for glucose, the lac operon in your genome could recognize all lactose that you consume, but because of this lac operon, your gut bacteria can’t recognize the lactose because it sees the glucose. It rejects the lactose making people allergic to lactose, when in all actuality; it’s the glucose that’s creating the problem.) Where is the warning for glucose? And where’s the warning fructose as well for that matter? It glycates, almost as much, as glucose.

 

Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS)

 

NRCS provides leadership in a partnership effort to help people conserve, maintain and improve our natural resources and environment. (NRCS) is the primary federal agency that works with private landowners to help them conserve, maintain and improve their natural resources. The Agency emphasizes voluntary, science-based conservation; technical assistance; partnerships; incentive-based programs; and cooperative problem solving at the community level.

 

This is the agency responsible for the treatment of our environment including the lands and waters that create it. I found that their concern is mostly with conservation and soil health. My concern is in the growing of non essential grains and feeding them to an unsuspecting society. I included this agency only because it is a small part in this whole complex algorithm. I haven’t checked on their relationship with the EPA is though. I’m sure that they would be happy not having to check toxin levels in the soil with the loss of spraying Roundup. I can only imagine the headaches this herbicide has given them (those not owned by Monsanto).

Risk Management Agency (RMA)

RMA helps to ensure that farmers have the financial tools necessary to manage their agricultural risks. RMA provides coverage through the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation which promotes national welfare by improving the economic stability of agriculture. (RMA) promotes, supports, and regulates sound risk management solutions to preserve and strengthen the economic stability of America’s agricultural producers by providing crop insurance to American producers, developing and the premium rate, administering premium and expense subsidy, approving and supporting products, and reinsuring companies.

 

It’s a shame crop insurance doesn’t cover the damage the crops do to the consumer. Where’s that kind of crop insurance? In a keto diet!

Rural Development (RD)

RD helps rural areas to develop and grow by offering Federal assistance that improves quality of life. RD targets communities in need and then empowers them with financial and technical resources. USDA Rural Development is committed to the future of rural communities. Our role is to increase rural residents’ economic opportunities and improve their quality of life. Rural Development forges partnerships with rural communities, funding projects that bring housing, community facilities, utilities and other services. We also provide technical assistance and financial backing for rural businesses and cooperatives to create quality jobs in rural areas. Rural Development promotes the President’s National Energy Policy and ultimately the nation’s energy security by engaging the entrepreneurial spirit of rural America in the development of renewable energy and energy efficiency improvements. Rural Development works with low-income individuals, State, local and Indian tribal governments, as well as private and nonprofit organizations and user-owned cooperatives.

This agency’s concern is the viability of rural communities, probably in an attempt not to allow rural towns to become ghost towns, which is already beginning to happen where industrial farming is taking place. With the new industrial farming that’s done today, fewer farmers are living in rural areas to support these rural communities. This is industrial farming according to the Monsanto creed. I shouldn’t need to ask you why this is allowed to happen. What I will ask is, what would happen if the grain industry transformed into a healthier industry? It would have to be one that didn’t involve polluting the environment with herbicides and pesticides and creating food that is responsible for all modern disease imposed upon modern man. It would have to include a withdrawal from industrial farming, A lack of the need for all the grain we consume would curtail this problem immensely. We need to bring back the small farmer.

Departmental Management (DM)

DM provides central administrative management support to Department officials and coordinates administrative programs and services. Departmental Management is USDA’s central administrative management organization. Departmental Management provides budget and fiscal management, human resource, procurement and information technology support to mission areas so that they can serve customers more effectively and efficiently. Departmental Management manages the Headquarters Complex and provides direct customer service to Washington, D.C. employees.

If this department’s job is to coordinate interdepartmental management and cooperation, is it their responsibility to disseminate the information from the reports in PubMed, PMC, and the FDA with their agency that recommends what should be in our diet? Have they educated the people at MyPlate.gov about the warnings that have been coming from PubMed and PMC about the dangers of what they’re recommending everyone to consume on a regular basis? Whole grains are still recommended in every agency and association that has a diet recommendation. Even Myplate.gov and the American Dietary Association and, believe it or not, the American Diabetic Association still recommend whole grains should be a part of a healthy diet. What health grains bring is, by far, counterbalanced by the harm they inflict.

National Appeals Division (NAD)

NAD conducts impartial administrative appeal hearings of adverse program decisions made by USDA and reviews of determinations issued by NAD hearing officers when requested by a party to the appeal. (NAD) is responsible for all administrative appeals arising from program activities of the Farm Service Agency, Risk Management Agency, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Rural Business-Cooperative Development Service, Rural Housing Service, and the Rural Utilities Service.

OFFICES

Office of Advocacy and Outreach (OAO)

The Office of Advocacy and Outreach (OAO) was established by the 2008 Farm bill to improve access to USDA programs and to improve the viability and profitability of small farms and ranches; beginning farmers and ranchers and socially disadvantaged farmers or ranchers. OAO develops and implements plans to coordinate outreach activities and services provided by the Department through working collaboratively with the field base agencies and continually assessing the effectiveness of its outreach programs.

Improving the viability and profitability of small and beginning farmers and ranchers Improving access to USDA programs for historically underserved communities Improving agricultural opportunities for farm workers

Closing the professional achievement gap by providing opportunities to talented and diverse young people to support the agricultural industry in the 21st century

 

If it’s this department’s responsibility to ensure the small farmer’s growth, why are they allowing Monsanto to take over all farming in the USA? A healthy food supply cannot be supplied by a monopoly as big as Monsanto. Are they familiar with the contracts Monsanto requires their contracted farmers to sign? Are they familiar with to movement Monsanto is making to control 100% or our food supply? Are they aware of the holdings of the Monsanto execs in the drug industry that used to be owned by Monsanto? I’m sure their breakup did not leave anybody without stock options.

 

Office of the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights (OASCR)

OASCR’s mission is to facilitate the fair and equitable treatment of USDA customers and employees, while ensuring the delivery and enforcement of civil rights programs and activities.

Our work supports larger goals of scientific prioritization and coordination across the entire Department through which federal agencies provide Senior Advisors to serve in a detail capacity within OCS. We identify, prioritize and evaluate Department-wide agricultural research, education, and extension needs. In addition, the Office of the Chief Scientist regularly convenes a USDA Science Council to further facilitate cross-Departmental scientific coordination and collaboration.

 

That is directly from their website. To me that says that they ensure information gets from one department to another department, yet they seemed to have missed the reports from PubMed and PMC pointing to the damage grains do, especially wheat.

From a PDF document on nutrition, Executive Summary: National Nutrition Research Roadmap (2016-2021) I found this paragraph;

For Q3T1 (Assessing Dietary Exposures), ARS scientists recognize there is a strong need for biomarkers of intake, nutrient status, and health, and are working in multiple areas related to this. For example, ARS scientists are studying the association of vitamin K with reduced cardiovascular disease and the amounts and types of dietary fatty acids that influence immunity and inflammation. There is also a need for development of more objective measures of food intake and physical activity. To that end, scientists are testing electronic capture devices that require no input from the user and can download to databases. I can tell them right now, that fatty acids are very important for immune functions. I’ve found those studies in my research. If that’s what I found, I’m sure that’s what they’ll find. I also found that all inflammation that exists is because of glucose in the blood. I wonder how long it will be until they realize that all inflammation is influenced by one thing more than anything else? I can tell them with full confidence that glucose influences inflammation more than anything else. I know because I limit my inflammation by limiting my carb intake and nothing else has worked as well. I can also tell them through experience that exercise and dietary reduction of starches, (which they still recommend to be 25% of the diet) will go further than any vitamin. I wonder how long it will take this chief scientist to realize that glycation is at the root of all inflammation and that glucose is at the root of all glycation. It doesn’t take any kind of a scientist to see that if you removed the glucose from the equation, the product of the equation couldn’t exist. The product in this equation is all the diseases created by inflammation.

 

Office of Communications (OC)

OC is USDA’s central source of public information. The office provides centralized information services using the latest, most effective and efficient technology and standards for communication. It also provides the leadership, coordination, expertise, and counsel needed to develop the strategies, products, and services that are used to describe USDA initiatives, programs, and functions to the public. (OC) provides leadership, expertise, counsel, and coordination for the development of communications strategies which are vital to the overall formulation, awareness and acceptance of USDA programs and policies, and serves as the principal USDA contact point for the dissemination of consistent, timely information.

The dissemination of consistent, timely information, is what this office’s responsibility is, yet I’ve not heard anything from them about the information from over 11,750 studies recording the dangers of glycation, which is the result of glucose interference with  your body’s normal processes. With studies showing this glycation going back over 30 years (about as old as GMO seeds), why hasn’t any of this “timely information” been disseminated for 30 years? Is this due to the Monsanto influence? If any agency is not fulfilling their responsibilities to keep the public safe from their own food, it’s this one. They have access to the same studies that I and thousands of others do, yet they still choose to ignore them. They still choose to recommend that this poisonous food be a part of your diet. Why?

Office of Congressional Relations (OCR)

OCR serves as the USDA’s liaison with Congress. OCR works closely with members and staffs of various House and Senate Committees to communicate the USDA’s legislative agenda and budget proposals. (OCR) serves as the Department’s liaison with Members of Congress and their staffs. OCR works closely with members and staffs of various House and Senate Committees including the House Agriculture Committee and the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry to communicate USDA’s legislative agenda and budget proposals. Within OCR is the Office of External and Intergovernmental Affairs (EIA) which serves as the liaison to elected and appointed officials of State, county, local, and Tribal governments. The office also serves as a liaison to USDA stakeholders.

 

My question to this office, have your alerted Congress of the dangers of these grains and the consequences they bring to the human physiology when consumed? Are you afraid of laws being passed that might outlaw some of this insanity? The insanity that I refer to is the insanity of buying into this glucose ruse, orchestrated by one of the most unscrupulous companies to ever conduct business. Is this the office responsible for keeping this information hidden from our lawmakers’ eyes? Is this the office that should be held accountable for our current state of public health? The state of our current public health is obese and diabetic, leading to carcinogenic and atherosclerotic, all because of the inflammatory nature of glycation.

If I can learn this myself and I have a good deal of brain damage inhibiting my learning ability, why can’t this office learn this to alert our Congress of this problem? The problem exists only for the consumer, as it’s a boom for Monsanto and its industries. Why would they want to control this? For them, this is good business. This is what attracts stockholders.

Office of Ethics (OE)

The Office of Ethics (OE) is the centralized office responsible for coordinating and implementing USDA’s Ethics program throughout the Department. OE provides ethics services to employees at all levels of USDA concerning advice and training about compliance with ethics laws and regulations, including the conflict of interest and impartiality rules, as well as the rules governing political activity by Federal employees.

 

A visit to this office’s site brought me to a page that showed me;

 

THE STOCK ACT

On April 4, 2012, the President signed the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act or STOCK Act (S. 2038), which amended the Ethics in Government Act of 1978 (5 U.S.C. App. § 101 et seq.) The Act has several different provisions, some of which are effective immediately, some which become effective 90 days after enactment, some which become effective on August 31, 2012, and some which do not become effective until 18 months after enactment. The following compendium of ethics laws, regulations and guidelines govern Executive Branch employees’ conduct, including USDA employees. The Department promulgated its own supplemental ethics regulation (5 CFR Part 8301) in 2006 to augment the Office of Government Ethics’ Standards of Ethical Conduct. The Department’s ethics regulation and other selected ethics laws and regulations are accessible from this page for ready reference (click on “General Ethics Laws and Regulations” below).

I wonder what their ethic regulations say about recommending poisonous food to remain in our diet, when there is proof of this food’s glycative effects in over 10,000 studies in PubMed and PMC. What do their ethics say about falsifying information disseminated to the public? The still claim that whole grains are safe to eat.

 

Office of Environmental Markets (OEM)

OEM supports the development of emerging markets for carbon, water quality, wetlands, and biodiversity. (OEM) provides leadership in the development of emerging markets for carbon, water quality, wetlands, and biodiversity. OEM is building national environmental market infrastructure, supporting regional market innovation, and fostering collaboration around market-based conservation within USDA and across the federal government.

 

I wonder if this environmental market infrastructure includes more fields of these killing field grains? If so, they may want to re-assess their goals, if they intent to protect the public and the environment.

Office of the Executive Secretariat (OES)

OES ensures that all Department officials are included in the correspondence drafting and policy-making process through a managed clearance and control system.

Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships (FBNP)

USDA has a long history of working with faith-based and community organizations to help those in need, by providing federal assistance through domestic nutrition assistance programs, international food aid, rural development opportunities, and natural resource conservation.

 

This is the office that coordinates churches food banks to assist the needy. Every church I’ve been to has had one, and they all give out plenty of bread, the deadliest of foods that we can give anyone. This condemns these poor unsuspecting souls to lives of poor health and continued medication. Our food supply is inundated with this vile product, only because it’s the primary bringer of people to medication, medication for pain.

Office of the Inspector General (OIG)

OIG investigates allegations of crime against the Department’s program, and promotes the economy and efficiency of its operations. (OGC) is an independent legal agency that provides legal advice and services to the Secretary of Agriculture and to all other officials and agencies of the Department with respect to all USDA programs and activities.

 

There were 50,000 food safety inspections in 1972. That was reduced to just over 9,000 in 2008. If there were only 9000 in 2008, reduced from 50,000 in 1972, when the threat level was much lower, the FDA is only succeeding at failing us on an unprecedented basis. I’m sure this is due to funding cutbacks from the government but I’m also sure it involves something related to departmental offices being run by corporate management brought in from corporations they’re supposed to regulate, proving once again (unfortunately) the bottom line is what wins here and the bottom line is greed.

If the USDA and the FDA can allow a food this dangerous through its monitoring, I’m afraid to even think about what else has snuck through?  The beef industry has already displayed their contempt for regulation through the mass production of beef that their industry is responsible for, especially in the last 30 years.

Office of the General Counsel (OGC)

The Office of the General Counsel (OGC) is an independent legal agency that provides legal advice and services to the Secretary of Agriculture and to all other officials and agencies of the Department with respect to all USDA programs and activities.

 

I wonder how many lawsuits this agency is going to have to fight for advising the public to eat food that’s as dangerous as whole grains. Myplate.gov still has them at 25% of our diet. Why?

Office of Tribal Relations (OTR)

The Office of Tribal Relations is located in the Office of the Secretary, and is responsible for government-to-government relations between USDA and tribal governments.

 

I can only empathize with this office as they have to see that this garbage is provided to tribal governments as well as the public in general.

I listed all of their offices and agencies for a reason. I wanted to show you the vastness of this department. It’s huge. It has to be huge to protect our food supply. As big as it is, it’s not doing that. It’s not doing its job. It’s been hijacked by the industry that it’s supposed to control. The proof lies in the extent of which disease exists today.

With all of these agencies and offices, I’m sure it’s quite difficult to keep all this information straight for the public to fully understand what this agency is allowing to “fall through the cracks”, as in allowing grains and sugar to be recommended food for everyone to eat, sometimes even those who have celiac disease. What this agency doesn’t understand is that everyone has an intolerance to the gluten than comes in grains. It’s estimated that 95% of the population have some sort of intolerance to the gliadin and gluten found in most cereal grains, especially wheat, barley and rye.

I’ve already contacted the Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion0 (CNPP) to ask them why they still recommend including grains in the diet. They’ve come to their senses when it comes to sugar, why can’t they, with grains, they’re just as deadly as sugar, if not more so? The agency above is responsible for recommending our diet at My Plate and I’ve already asked them why they still recommend a food that can cause as much damage is this food does. I’m waiting for their reply.

There is absolutely no reason for these foods to still be recommended except for the fact that to decrease the consumption of these food would irreparably harm Monsanto and the farming industry that they control. And they control a huge portion of it.

The infiltration of their old execs and lobbyists into the offices of the FDA and the USDA is evidence indicating their complicity in the matter. With their old personnel working the offices and agencies of the USDA and the FDA, they’ve cleared a pathway to their full control over what goes on your table. This in return gives them control over the meds you’ll be buying from them in the near future.

I noticed that there is no agency or office to review and disseminate the information in these research studies showing the damaging effects of the food they’re recommending for us to eat. There’s supposed to be one, but there isn’t.

How do they make recommendations on what foods are good for you to eat, when you’re ignoring all the studies that say otherwise? They rely on Monsanto to tell them what’s healthy and what isn’t. Is that a source you would trust? I hope so because you trust them with every bagel you put in your mouth.

 

Monsanto’s Field of disease and discomfort

Why No Warnings from the FDA About gluten and sugar?

FDA’s Assessment of Gluten and Sugar.

It would be nice if this was a problem with just the grain industry but it’s not. It also involves the FDA and what has influenced them to not issue warnings for this allergen. The more I look at it, the more I see that it is a problem with overextending corporate entities. Knowing the dealings that Monsanto has had in the past with competitors and their own judicial systems, it’s not hard to fathom at all the involvement they would have, in the cover up of these studies. It’s actually easy to see their involvement the same as the sugar industry. They didn’t just cover up the studies condemning gluten , they initiated reports themselves that showed gluten was healthy. That is a complete falsehood from the truth of what gluten does.

grunge-cracked-fda-approved-background-some-smooth-lines-69009424

Gluten does the same thing as sugar. Why won’t the FDA recognize that? They have all the studies that point to it. Don’t they read them?

The following is an excerpt from an FDA study on Gluten as an allergen (1 of 173 studies).

What is the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA) of 2004? 

FALCPA is an amendment to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and requires that the label of a food that contains an ingredient that is or contains protein from a “major food allergen ” declare the presence of the allergen in the manner described by the law.

Gluten

  1. Why is there a concern about gluten? 

Gluten describes a group of proteins found in certain grains (wheat, barley, and rye.) It is of concern because people with celiac disease cannot tolerate it. Celiac disease (also known as celiac sprue) is a chronic digestive disease that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food. Recent findings estimate that 2 million people in the U.S. have celiac disease or about 1 in 133 people.

  1. What does FALCPA require with regard to gluten?

FALCPA requires FDA to issue a proposed rule that will define and permit the voluntary use of the term “gluten free” on the labeling of foods by August 2006 and a final rule no later than August 2008.

  1. What has FDA done in response to the FALCPA mandate?

FDA held a public meeting in August 2005 to obtain expert comment and consultation from stakeholders to help FDA develop a regulation to define and permit the voluntary use on food labeling of the term “gluten-free” (Public Meeting On: Gluten-Free Food Labeling). The meeting focused on food manufacturing, analytical methods, and consumer issues related to reduced levels of gluten in food.

FDA’s gluten-free definition, is that the food contain less than 20 ppm of gluten. It seems their concern is more with labelling than it is with safety. If it were with safety, they’d be warning us about the dangers that I’ve listed, yet they don’t, as if they were influenced by an outside source.

They consider wheat and gluten as undeclared allergens yet they refuse to acknowledge its allergenic properties to the extent that they won’t require a warning label for it. Yet they know what damage it does. All they require is a mention of wheat in the ingredients and nothing more. That is their warning. Consider this your warning; Grains are poison, and that includes wheat.

Their negligence in regards to our health in this manner is unconscionable. I can only assume that they’ve been influenced by the other side of the industry that provides crop seed for the farmers that grow the food that the FDA approves for us to eat. The other side of this industry, owned by the same corporations, is the pharmaceutical industry. They provide us with all of the drugs that we take to fight the disease caused by the food provided their sister pharmaceutical industry.

What I wonder is, what does the FDA consider stakeholders? Are they the corporate entities who have an interest in proliferating wheat and gluten? Since we now know that this happened with sugar, why wouldn’t the same thing happen with gluten? We know that gluten breaks down to nothing more than glucose (sugar), I can see where the same situation would exist today, that existed 50 -60 years ago. In fact, I believe it’s an ongoing problem.

Just like in the tobacco industry, “selling a product that is already sold for them as it’s addictive”, the same mantra is heard in the grain industry concerning their gluten.  “How can people refuse to buy our products? They’re addictive so people will want them more.

I salute the FDA for monitoring products claiming to be gluten free yet have more than a trace of gluten in them, such as the Investigation into General Mills for selling Cheerios that had more than the allowed limit of 20 ppm of gluten. Yet knowing what damage gluten does to the body, I have to wonder why do they still allow it to be marketed without any warnings? The tobacco companies can’t market their products without warnings. Why it the food industry allow to? The evidence lies within the vaults of the FDA, showing all the damage it does. Why do they ignore that evidence?

What evidence, you say? This evidence lies in the excerpts below, from three of their 173 studies on gluten;

  1. “Gluten is the protein that naturally occurs in wheat, rye, barley, and crossbreeds of these grains.Most people can eat gluten, but in people with celiac disease, gluten intake gradually damages the intestines, prevents the absorption of vitamins and minerals, and can lead to other health problems. Symptoms can include diarrhea, fatigue, headaches, abdominal pain, brain fog, rashes, nausea, vomiting, and other reactions.”
  2. “People who have an allergy to wheat run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they eat wheat. Symptoms may include swelling, itching or irritation of mouth or throat, difficulty breathing, nasal congestion, itchy or watery eyes, rash or hives, headaches, nausea, vomiting, cramps, diarrhea, or anaphylaxis, a potentially life-threatening reaction.”What I can’t understand, with this kind of disruption of bodily functions, why doesn’t this require a warning like cigarettes? It’s clearly killed more people.
  3. ”Unlike food allergies, clinical signs and symptoms do not appear to be reliable markers of disease activity because many individuals affected with celiac disease may be entirely asymptomatic. This tells me that a lot more people suffer from the disease than what have been diagnosed. Furthermore, although biomarkers of genetic susceptibility (e.g., presence of DQ2 and/or DQ8 HLA alleles) and gluten exposure [e.g., antibodies for gliadin (AGA), endomysial (EMA), and tissue transglutaminase (tTG)] have been defined for use in noninvasive diagnosis of individuals with celiac disease, these biomarkers have not been shown to correlate with disease severity nor to be useful in assessing daily responses to gluten exposures. Rather, evidence of intestinal mucosal inflammation is the gold standard biomarker for diagnosis of celiac disease and for assessment of disease severity. Intestinal mucosal inflammation may occur long before the development of clinical signs or a rise in antibody titers following a gluten challenge. Intestinal inflammation is assessed by intestinal biopsy, which is an invasive procedure, associated with false negatives (due to sampling error), and is impractical for frequent monitoring of disease activity or severity.”     Revised Threshold Report Page 58 of 108
  4. “Unpublished data described in Moneret-Vautrin and Kanny (2004) show that 83% of wheat allergic children reacted to less than 2 g of wheat flour while only 18% of wheat allergic adults responded at this level. Unpublished data described in Moneret Vautrin (2004) on wheat flourchallenges using 32 children and 32 adults with wheat allergy, reported a LOAEL of ≤ 1.8 mg protein for allergic children (the lowest tested dose) and 52.8 mg protein for allergic adults. Scibilia et al. (2006) reported that 2 of 13 responders reacted to the lowest dose of wheat flour tested (100 mg of a mix of bread and durum flour, approximately 15 mg protein) in DBPCFCs. In total, 31% of the patients who reacted did so to challenge doses less than or equal to 240 mg of wheat protein.” Approaches to Establish Thresholds for Major Food Allergens My question how many people eat this amount? Most people eat around 150mg of wheat products in a day, not enough to express symptoms of celiac disease, but enough to do unnoticed damage.
  5. “The foods of concern for individuals with, or susceptible to, celiac disease are the cereal grains that contain the storage proteins prolamin and glutelin (commonly referred to as glutens in wheat), including all varieties of wheat (e.g., durum, spelt, kamut), barley (where the storage proteins are called hordiens), rye (where the storage proteins are called secalins), and their cross-bred hybrids (such as triticale). The proportion of individuals with celiac disease that are also sensitive to the storage proteins in oats (avenins) has not been determined but is likely to be less than 1% (Kelly, 2005).”
  6. “The clinical manifestations of celiac disease are highly variable in character and severity. The reasons for this diversity are unknown but may depend on the age and immunological status of the individual, the amount, duration, or timing of exposure to gluten, and the specific area and extent of the gastrointestinal tract involved by disease (Dewar et al., 2004). These clinical manifestations can be divided into gastrointestinal, or “classic,” and non-gastrointestinal manifestations. Gastrointestinal manifestations usually present in children 4 to 24 months old and include abdominal pain and cramping, bloating, recurrent or chronic diarrhea in association with weight loss, poor growth, nutrient deficiency, and (in rare cases) a life-threatening metabolic emergency termed celiac crisis, characterized by hypokalemia and acidosis secondary to profuse diarrhea (Farrell and Kelly, 2002; Baranwal et al., 2003). Non-gastrointestinal manifestations are more insidious and highly variable and are the common presenting signs in older children and adults. These manifestations are frequently the result of long-term nutrient malabsorption, including iron deficiency anemia, short stature, delayed puberty, infertility, and osteoporosis or osteopenia (Fasano, 2003). In children, progressive malabsorption of nutrients may lead to growth, developmental, or neurological delays (Catassi and Fasano, 2004). Extra-intestinal manifestations such as dermatitis herpetiformis, hepatitis, peripheral neuropathy, ataxia, and epilepsy have also been associated with celiac disease (Fasano and Catassi, 2001). Individuals with untreated celiac disease are also at increased risk for potentially serious medical conditions, such as other autoimmune diseases (e.g., Type I diabetes mellitus) and intestinal cancers associated with high mortality (Farrell and Kelly, 2002; Peters et al., 2003; Catassi et al., 2002). For example, individuals with celiac disease have an 80-fold greater risk of developing adenocarcinoma of the small intestine, a greater than two-fold increased risk for intestinal or extra intestinal lymphomas (Green and Jabri, 2003) and a 20-fold greater risk of developing enteropathy-associated T cell lymphoma (EATL) (Catassi et al.,”
  7. “There is no standard protocol for gluten challenges, and challenge studies have varied greatly in amount and duration of gluten exposure. Although some studies have been designed to determine the acute effects (i.e., after 4 hours) of exposure to gluten (Sturgesset al., 1994; Ciclitiraet al., 1984), most challenges consist of an open challenge to a fixed or incremental dose of daily gluten over a minimum period of 4 weeks. Many challenge studies use a high exposure (≥ 10 g/day) to gluten, because this is believed to shorten time to disease confirmation or relapse and, therefore, to minimize discomfort to subjects (Rolles and McNeish, 1976). However, some studies have shown that low daily exposures to gluten also can elicit a disease response (Catassi et al., 1993; Laurin et al., 2002; Hamilton and McNeill, 1972).”      
  8. “At this time there is no correlative information on the efficacy of using these tests to predict or help prevent adverse effects in individuals with celiac disease.”
  9. “Although gluten-free diets are considered the only effective treatment for individuals with celiac disease, it has been recognized that it is difficult, if not impossible, to maintain a diet that is completely devoid of gluten (Collinet al., 2004). Therefore, several attempts have been made to define gluten-free in regulatory contexts. Efforts by the Codex Alimentarius to define an international standard for “gluten-free” labeling date back to 1981. At that time, due to the lack of sensitive, specific analytical methods, a threshold value of 0.05 g nitrogen per 100 g dry matter was set for wheat starch, on the assumption that wheat protein would be the only source of nitrogen in starch (Codex Standard 118-1981). The Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses is developing a revised standard. The current draft proposal would define three categories of gluten-free foods: processed foods that are naturally “gluten-free” (≤ 20 ppm of gluten), products that had been rendered “gluten-free” by processing (≤ 200 ppm), and any mixture of the two (≤ 200 ppm). The Australia New Zealand Food Agency (ANZFA) defines gluten to mean “the main protein in wheat, rye, oats, barley, triticale and spelt relevant to the medical conditions, Coeliac disease and dermatitis hepetiformis.” ANZFA recognizes two classes of foods, gluten-free foods (” …no detectable gluten”) and low-gluten foods (” …no more than 20 mg gluten per 100 gm of the food”) (ANZFA Food Code Standard 1.2.8). The Canadian standard for “gluten-free” is more general, simply stating that “No person shall label, package, sell or advertise a food in a manner likely to create an impression that it is a “gluten-free” food unless the food does not contain wheat, including spelt and kamut, or oats, barley, rye, triticale or any part thereof” (Canadian Food and Drugs Act Regulation B.24.018).”     Approaches to Establish Thresholds for Major Food Allergens and for Gluten in Food. III, IV, V.Now that you know what grains this involves you can get an idea of what not to eat.
  10. ”Like food allergies, celiac disease affects only a small proportion of the U.S. population (estimated at 1%, 3.1 million) (NIH, 2004). Susceptibility to celiac disease is genetically determined and is linked to the presence of the DQ2 or DQ8 HLA alleles. However, carrying these alleles does not necessarily lead to celiac disease. Both acute and chronic morbidity have been well documented for individuals with symptomatic celiac disease. A gluten-free diet has been shown to greatly reduce the risk for cancer and overall mortality for these individuals. The potential benefit of a gluten-free diet has not been established for individuals with silent or latent celiac disease.”

I submit that this is a disease of a much grander scale, meaning a lot more people suffer from it than what’s reported, as far too often this disease goes completely unrecognized and thus undiagnosed. I hear complaints from many carboholics about many of the disorders at the top of this list. That tells me that they each have an allergic intolerance to gluten and they don’t even know it.  Because of its addictive nature, they’ll never know it, unless they can give it up.

The above paragraphs apply to those with celiac disease, yet I contend that everyone experience some of the above reactions to some degree. This happens even more so if you consume more of their products. I thought I could eat this food for 58 years until I learned that I had allergies to it. Now I know that I have allergic intolerances to this food. It presents itself every time I try to eat it again.

My guess is 90% of the population is exactly the same as I am, allergic to the protein in gluten. I contend that the obesity and diabetes rates that exist today confirm this. The death rates of all the diseases caused by gluten prove it. That forces me to ask, with all the evidence available in your archives, why doesn’t this food require a warning?

This is what the FDA claims they’re concerned about;

“In 21 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part 117 (part 117), we have established our regulation entitled “Current Good Manufacturing Practice, Hazard Analysis, and Risk Based Preventive Controls for Human Food.” We published the final rule establishing part 117 in the Federal Register of September 17, 2015 (80 FR 55908). Part 117 establishes requirements for current good manufacturing practice for human food (CGMPs), for hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls for human food (PCHF), and related requirements.”

After reviewing over half of the documents available and an examination of all the titles of the documents, I see nothing that bans the inclusion of any of these dangerous foods in our food products made for public consumption (processed foods, including bread). It seems their interest lies only in compliance with the labeling of the product. They want to make sure that a package that’s sold as gluten free has to have less than 20ppm gluten in the product.

They don’t even feel that it’s important enough to warn you that a product contains gluten, yet they don’t feel it important enough to warn you of the dangers of gluten on the package, like they do with the dangers of cigarettes. They recognize the danger of tobacco, why can’t they recognize the dangers of gluten and wheat? It seems that they’re content with warning you how  much a product is gluten free, but not how much gluten it has in it, as if it does no harm at all. “C’MON MAN.” I have access to the same studies they have. They’re all located at PUBMED.COM and they all explain the dangers this food presents. If I can learn about what this food does, they have to know. Why are they so willing to ignore it? Why are they so willing to treat this food as though there’s nothing wrong with it.

The first page of studies I opened brought me to this study, the twelfth study out of 1797 studies on the list and reveals the dangers of just breathing the dust from these cereal grains. The grain induced asthma which affects those who work in the various fields in the grain industry, as stated by the Allergy, Asthma & immunology Research:

“Asthma caused by allergy to proteins from cereal grains is one of the most common types of occupational asthma (OA) and its prevalence does not seem to be declining.1 The main professions affected are: bakers, confectioners, pastry factory workers, millers, farmers, and cereal handlers. Although wheat is the most commonly involved cereal, other grains (e.g. rye, barley, rice) also play a role. In addition, flour from other sources (e.g. soya, lupin), pests, and several flour additives used in the baking industry to improve fermentation and elasticity of the dough, as well as to improve storage of the bread, may also give rise to IgE-mediated allergy.”  “This disorder has been classically considered a form of allergic asthma mediated by IgE antibodies specific to cereal flour antigens, mainly wheat, rye and barley,”

In the tenth study the on list published, in July 2009, it’s been found that the globulins in wheat can cause type 1 diabetes. T1D is an autoimmune disorder that was thought to have no cause. At least, all the studies I’ve looked at didn’t reveal this. According to BioMed Central;

“Taken together, the results indicate that a diverse group of globulins exists in wheat, some of which could be associated with the  pathogenesis of T1D in some susceptible individuals.Taken together, the results indicate that a diverse group of globulins exists in wheat, some of which could be associated with the pathogenesis of T1D in some susceptible individuals. These data expand our knowledge of specific wheat globulins and will enable further elucidation of their role in wheat biology and human health.

I have read elsewhere that it might be thought that an allergen might trigger an autoimmune response that shuts down the hormones that trigger insulin manufacture in the pancreas. It appears that this is that finding. Wheat can be responsible for type 1 diabetes. Have you seen any warnings for that? I haven’t. Have any been issued? I haven’t seen them. Why haven’t they been issued? How many parents have fed their kids bread to find out that their children are diabetic because of this auto-immune disorder? Why is bread still considered by so many to be a necessity of life?  It doesn’t appear so. It appears more likely to be a destroyer of life.

This is what I’m concerned about;

47,397 deaths daily from CVDs

47,397 people died each day, worldwide, from cardiovascular disease in 2013.  That breaks down to over 1800 Americans that died every day from cardiovascular disease in 2013. That’s 17.3 million annually, worldwide. That was up from 12.3 million (25.8%) in 1990According to Wikipedia“Coronary artery disease and stroke account for 80% of CVD deaths in males and 75% of CVD deaths in females.[1] Most cardiovascular disease affects older adults. In the United States 11% of people between 20 and 40 have CVD, while 37% between 40 and 60, 71% of people between 60 and 80, and 85% of people over 80 have CVD.[10] The average age of death from coronary artery disease in the developed world is around 80 while it is around 68 in the developing world.” This rate is increasing each year by

This points to the fact the this food which is eaten on a daily basis does so little damage incrementally to the consumer that it’s never noticed until it’s too late. The disease has already manifested itself and the price is now being paid for a lifetime of consumption. The question I keep asking myself is why does this have to keep happening? Why hasn’t the FDA warned us about the dangers of this food? They have access to all of the same reports that I do, yet they still refuse to acknowledge that this food is dangerous.

Does their interest lie elsewhere? Is there corporate influence involved with this like there was with sugar?

The sugar industry actively took steps for years to influence public’s perception of the nutritional value of their product, when they clearly knew of the dangers it posed. “Food companies have spent billions of dollars to cover up the link between sugar consumption and health problems. That’s the conclusion of a new report from the Center for Science and Democracy at the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS).”

According to The Guardian;

Sugar lobby paid scientists to blur sugar’s role in heart disease – report

“New report highlights battle by the industry to counter sugar’s negative health effects, and the cushy relationship between food companies and researchers”. ” Influential research that downplayed the role of sugar in heart disease in the 1960s was paid for by the sugar industry, according to a report released on Monday.

This actions are responsible for more deaths that all the world wars combined. Their actions have killed, hurt or harmed more than 500,000,000 people in the last 30 years alone. (At 17.3 million for heart disease alone, 500 million is a lowball estimate for death coming from cancer and  dementia as well.) All total, the death rate for ECC is over 24,000,000 each year. That’s over 65,753 deaths each day, simply from excessive carbohydrate consumption. (Remember carbs = sugar.)

With backing from a sugar lobby, scientists promoted dietary fat as the cause of coronary heart disease instead of sugar, according to a historical document review published in JAMA Internal MedicineThis was criminal, yet nothing was done about it.

Though the review is nearly 50 years old, it also showcases a decades-long battle by the sugar industry to counter the product’s negative health effects. Why isn’t this agency being held accountable?

The findings come from documents recently found by a researcher at the University of San Francisco, which show that scientists at the Sugar Research Foundation (SRF), known today as the Sugar Association, paid scientists to do a 1967 literature review that overlooked the role of sugar in heart disease. Wasn’t that a clear case of bribery that should have been prosecuted?

SRF set an objective for the review, funded it and reviewed drafts before it was published in the New England Journal of Medicine, which did not require conflict of interest disclosure until 1984. The three Harvard scientists who wrote the review made what would be $50,000 in today’s dollars from the review. Because of this bribery, over 500,000,000 have suffered from this diseases that sugar is responsible for. From diabetes to heart disease to arthritis to cancer to…you should know the list by now.

“Marion Nestle, a nutrition, food studies and public health professor at New York University, said the food industry continues to influence nutrition science, in an editorial published alongside the JAMA report When will it stop? Never, until we let this industry know that we won’t accept their definition of healthy food and stop buying their versions of it.

 “Today, it is almost impossible to keep up with the range of food companies sponsoring research – from makers of the most highly processed foods, drinks, and supplements to producers of dairy foods, meats, fruits, and nuts – typically yielding results favorable to the sponsor’s interests,” Nestle said. “Food company sponsorship, whether or not intentionally manipulative, undermines public trust in nutrition science, contributes to public confusion about what to eat, and compromises Dietary Guidelines in ways that are not in the best interest of public health.”

The cushy relationship between food companies and researcher has been captured in recent investigations by the Associated Press and New York Times.The AP revealed in June that candy trade groups were funding research into sweets. And in 2015, the New York Times showed how Coca-Cola has funded millions in research to downplay the link between sugary beverages and obesity.

The Sugar Association said in a statement that SRF “should have exercised greater transparency” in its research, but also accused the study authors of having an “anti-sugar narrative”.

“We question this author’s continued attempts to reframe historical occurrences to conveniently align with the currently trending anti-sugar narrative, particularly when the last several decades of research have concluded that sugar does not have a unique role in heart disease,” the Sugar Association said. “Most concerning is the growing use of headline-baiting articles to trump quality scientific research – we’re disappointed to see a journal of JAMA’s stature being drawn into this trend.”

The findings were based on documents found by Cristin Kearns, a postdoctoral fellow at UCSF, in library archives.

The scientists and executives involved are no longer alive.

In recent years, the link between fat and heart disease has become a more contentious topic – a 2010 review of scientific studies of fat in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that “there is no convincing evidence that saturated fat causes heart disease”. The role of sugar in heart disease is still being debated.”

Even according to Mother Jones“The industry’s tactics—similar to those used by Big Tobacco in downplaying the adverse health effects of smoking—were explored by Gary Taubes and Cristin Kearns Couzens in the 2012 Mother Jones investigation “Big Sugar’s Sweet Little Lies.” But this latest report draws on some newly released documents submitted as evidence in a recent federal court case involving the two biggest players in the sweetener industry: the Sugar Association and the Corn Refiners Association (the trade group for manufacturers of high fructose corn syrup). ”

The evidence is piling up.

The FDA can’t hide their complicity much longer.

Even according to Mother Jones“The industry’s tactics—similar to those used by Big Tobacco in downplaying the adverse health effects of smoking—were explored by Gary Taubes and Cristin Kearns Couzens in the 2012 Mother Jones investigation “Big Sugar’s Sweet Little Lies.” But this latest report draws on some newly released documents submitted as evidence in a recent federal court case involving the two biggest players in the sweetener industry: the Sugar Association and the Corn Refiners Association (the trade group for manufacturers of high fructose corn syrup). ”

“Obesity and diabetes mellitus are often linked to cardiovascular disease,[53] as are a history of chronickidney disease and hypercholesterolaemia.[54] In fact, cardiovascular disease is the most life-threatening of the diabetic complications and diabetics are two- to four-fold more likely to die of cardiovascular-related causes than nondiabetics.”

According to the World Heart Association ;

“Up to 90% of cardiovascular disease may be preventable if established risk factors are avoided.[65]“ Their goal is 25 by 25. “25×25, achieving a 25% relative reduction in overall mortality from cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes or chronic respiratory disease by 2025. In September 2011, the United Nations held a High-Level Meeting in New York on the subject of NCDs, including cardiovascular disease (CVD), cancers, diabetes and chronic respiratory diseases.“

They’re actively taking steps to lower the death rate of CVDs by recommending everyone to eat right, quit smoking, and exercise, all of which will lower this number one killer of people. Eating right, in my opinion is by far the best way to combat CVDs, diabetes, obesity, hypertension, high cholesterol (which is really a problem of unbalanced cholesterol), arthritis and worst of all, dementia and Alzheimer disease.

In all of my research, I can’t find anything that says to limit the use of bread and starchy carbohydrates made from grains. Yet all research I’ve look at from PubMed and even the FDA show that this food does cause these disorders. Every time I look at the data, I’m forced to ask myself, why hasn’t’ the FDA, WHA, or the ADA condemned this food? These agencies have to know what’s going on, yet they refuse to act. Who is blocking this action?

After researching my book It’s Time For A Cure, I’ve learned that this food is at the base of all of the diseases listed above, forcing me to ask, why hasn’t the FDA, or the WHF warned us of this food. The only reason I can come up with is that it is being protected from prosecution by the industry that provides the crop seed for the farmer as well as the drugs to combat the arthritis caused by what their seed grows into.

From PubMed’s study; Characterization of Proteins from Grain of Different Bread and Durum Wheat Genotypes: “Wheat is unique among the edible grains because wheat flour has the protein complex called “gluten” that can be formed into dough with the rheological properties required for the production of leavened bread [9]. The rheological properties of gluten are needed not only for bread production, but also in the wider range of foods that can only be made from wheat, viz., noodles, pasta, pocket breads, pastries, cookies, and other products [10]. The gluten proteins consist of monomeric gliadins and polymeric glutenins. Glutenins and gliadins are recognized as the major wheat storage proteins, constituting about 75–85% of the total grain proteins with a ratio of about 1:1 in common or bread wheat [3,11] and they tend to be rich in asparagine, glutamine, arginine or proline [12] but very low in nutritionally important amino acids lysine, tryptophan and methionine [13].”

“Very low in nutritionally important amino acids” interests me. Amino acids are proteins. When you take away the protein, you’re left with little else but carbohydrates. This fact combined with the fact that gliadins have been shown to provoke the body to release anti-gliadin antibodies, which also have been shown to have the ability to attach themselves to Purkinje cells in the cerebellum, make this food suspect, at the least.

When an anti-gliadin antibody attaches itself to a cell in the cerebellum, the brain renders that cell useless and discards it. Although many parts of your brain can grow new cells to replace discarded cells, this area of the brain can’t. That means whenever an anti-gliadin antibody attaches itself to a purkinje cell, that part of the brain never comes back. Yes, that does mean brain damage for those who release these anti-gliadin antibodies.

The question this brings up is how many of us release these antibodies? Judging from the amount of Alzheimer’s disease invading the civilized world, I would say a majority of people display this form of intolerance….a rather large majority.  The next question this congers is, am I one of them? Are you one of them? I found out that I am. Have you yet?

42,657 dadeaths worldwide from cardiovascular disease

Heart disease kills more people every year than any other single cause. Over 42,000 people die from this disease and every day and the only reason it exists is the high amount of sugar we put into our bodies. It brings about the glycation ECC is responsible for and it’s this glycation that is responsible 42,000 deaths from cardiovascular disease every day.

But that’s not all it is responsible for. We have to look at Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. We have to consider cancer, and we have to worry about the amount of high blood pressure and high cholesterol ECC is responsible for. All of these disorders are money producing the diseases that this industry generates, simply for the sake of profit. It’s this profit that is killing everyone

13,698 daily deaths globally from Alzheimer disease

13.698 die each day, worldwide, due to Alzheimer disease alone. That amounts to over 500 deaths daily in the US alone, which means that at least 20 people in this country will die this hour alone, due to Alzheimer disease. Nothing contributes to Alzheimer disease as much as bread consumption. It’s the starchy carbs that break down to glucose, and it’s the glucose that glycates the cholesterol and protein that builds up the plaque and inflammation in your blood that leads to Alzheimer disease, cancer, arthritis, Atherosclerosis as well as most all other CVDs, as well as hypertension and high cholesterol.

11,232 deaths daily from cancer worldwide

11,232 people die every day globally due to some form of cancer and with all the evidence available that wheat contributes to the spread of multiple forms of cancer, why hasn’t the FDA made any statements about the dangers this food presents to the human body. Evidence shows these devastating effects going back to the bones of earliest cavemen that have been discovered.

I recently watched a Nova program on a 5,000 year old iceman mummy that had been frozen in an ice flow until he was discovered in 1991. They found remnants of einkorn wheat in his upper digestive tract suggesting his last meal was bread made from the flour of einkorn wheat. His bones also showed “disease of a modern lifestyle”, as they like to call it. What is this disease of a modern lifestyle? Arthritis. This is evidence of the glycation that occurred in this man from eating the carb loaded bread made from einkorn wheat. Even as difficult as it was to digest einkorn wheat at that time, due to its fibrous nature, it still did the same damage then, that it does today to everyone who continues to eat this food.

Copied from NOVA on PBS concerning a 5,000 year old frozen mummy ;

“Oeggl reconstructed the Iceman’s last meal from his microscopic analysis of a tiny sample removed from the mummy’s transverse colon, the part of the intestine just beyond the stomach. When the Iceman was discovered in 1991, x-rays and CAT-scans of the corpse revealed that his internal organs had shrunken so drastically in the 5,300 years in the glacier that Dr. Dieter Zur Nedden, the radiologist who examined the images, could barely distinguish them. Instead of filling the chest cavity with their billowy white form, the lungs looked like wisps of clouds.

But at the top of the colon, Zur Nedden made out a slight bulge, which the radiologist suspected was a clump of half-processed food. The progress of the food indicated that the Iceman had last eaten about eight hours before he died, possibly of hypothermia, on the Hauslabjoch pass, which cuts over the main Alpine ridge dividing Austria from Italy at 10,500 feet above sea level.

Not until several years after the discovery did the Innsbruck scientists finally cut a hole into the mummy, insert an endoscope, and snip out about .004 ounces from the colon. Dr. Werner Platzer, the University of Innsbruck anatomist then in charge of research on the corpse, gave .0016 ounces milligrams of the material to Oeggl, who had already been studying the rich botanical finds from the site.

Pollen provided a snapshot of the environment the Iceman was exposed to in the hours before his death

Oeggl’s sample was barely the size of his little fingernail. Under the microscope, he quickly identified the flake-like, semi-digested material that made up the bulk of the sample as einkorn, the most important wheat of the Neolithic, the period of prehistory in which people lived in semi-permanent settlements and survived by agriculture and keeping animals. The discovery of einkorn, which does not occur naturally in Europe, in the Iceman’s intestinal tract suggested that he had contact with an agricultural community. The dominance of bran in the sample led Oeggl to believe that the wheat had been finely ground into meal and made into bread, rather than eaten as a porridge, where the grains would have been eaten whole and found in larger pieces in the colon. But the bread would have been little like modern breads. In order to get bread to rise when yeast is added, the wheat grains must contain a high level of gluten, which lends the dough a durable elasticity and therefore holds the pockets of air. Einkorn has low levels of gluten, so the bread made with it was probably hard, somewhat like a cracker, and rather tough on the teeth.

Using an electron microscope Oeggl also spotted tiny particles of charcoal attached to the bran, probably remnants of the baking process on a hot rock, or next to a fire. In addition to the einkorn, the cells of at least one other plant, possibly some herb, were present in the sample, and Oeggl concluded that they, too, had been part of his meal. He also found a tiny muscle fiber and a burned bit of bone, evidence that the Iceman might also have eaten a meat. What kind of meat Oeggl cannot yet say, nor can he determine how much of the meal the sample represented.

 

Not everything passing through the Iceman’s gut had been swallowed intentionally, or was even desirable. Oeggl also found the eggs of the human whipworm. Many people alive today who do not live in areas with flush toilets also carry the worm, which can cause unpleasant symptoms like stomach ache and diarrhea, or even lead to malnutrition. The scientists have no way of knowing whether the Iceman had any such complaints.

Scientists may never know what prompted the Iceman to leave the relatively hospitable valley with no water or food to speak of

The sample also contained many different varieties of pollen, whose strange and beautiful forms Oeggl saw under the electron microscope. Though some peoples are known to eat pollen, Oeggl believed that the quantity in his colon was too small to represent a meal. Instead, the pollen accidentally ended up in the man’s stomach because they either had landed in food or water he ingested, or were inhaled and became trapped in saliva which he then swallowed. Scientists had long wondered where the Iceman was coming from and where he was headed, but until the discovery of the pollen inside the corpse, no scientist had any convincing documentation for his last day. But the pollen provided a snapshot of the environment the Iceman was exposed to in the hours before his death.

The majority of the pollen came from the hop hornbeam tree, which grows in a warm environment. As soon as Oeggl recognized it under his microscope lens, he not only knew which side of the mountain the Iceman had been on shortly before his death, but also the season in which he died. The hop hornbeam tree blooms between March and June, and because the sperm inside the pollen grain, which normally decays after a short exposure to air or water, was still intact, Oeggl believed it had to have been absorbed relatively soon after its release from the tree. The nearest stands of that tree could have grown to the south of the Hauslabjoch, at least five or six hours away by foot. The high valleys to the north are just too cold to sustain it.

The pollen of this particular tree was, therefore, one key to understanding the Iceman’s last hours. It meant that the Iceman was almost certainly in the valley within half a day of his death. Previously scientists had speculated that the Iceman had died in the late summer, when he was surprised by an early storm while trying to cross the pass.

Oeggl readily acknowledges that scientists may never know what prompted the Iceman to leave the relatively hospitable valley with no water or food to speak of (a single sloe berry was found with his remains) and try to cross the mountain at a time of year when several feet of snow easily could have obscured the topography of the steep and rocky Alpine ridge. But his own interest in the Iceman’s demise is not yet exhausted. He expects that his meticulous analysis of the botanical and archaeological material recovered from the bottom of the shallow in which the man died will soon reveal more details about the circumstances of the Iceman’s death.

This feature originally appeared on the site for the NOVA program Ice Mummies.”

Although not shown in this excerpt, the iceman did show signs of modern day disease in his bones. it was evident mostly around his joints in the form of arthritis. This arthritis is directly due to his diet of einkorn wheat. As it does now, in glycating all cholesterol it comes in contact with causing arthritis, it did so then. It just did it slower, due to the indigestibility of the einkorn wheat, but it occurred never-the-less.

The damage it did at that time was much less than what it does now, due to the lack of fiber it has in today’s strains of wheat, mostly the bread wheat made of Triticum aestivum, and spelt, durum, and emmer, as well. Even though arthritis seldom kills its victim, the damage it does, doesn’t go away, ever. It’s stuck to you like paint on a wall and you can’t scrape it off. Most of today’s wheat has more gluten protein than its ever had in its history, making it gluier and stickier, which make it that much more dangerous , as this is what builds up the plaque in your system and you already know what damage plaque does.

Perhaps the biggest question this brings up is, with all of this information available for this many years, why hasn’t the FDA warned us that this food has these capabilities to do this kind of damage to the human body. Should the public be able to make an informed decision as to whether or not to continue to eat this food? Or should the FDA continue to ignore the evidence and fail to even let the public know what this food does? The question I want to ask, was there outside influence in their decision to not expose this information?

Someone is trying to hide this information. They’re want to leave it up to an uneducated public to automatically know what these studies have shown. In whose best interest would it be to keep this information hidden? Whose business would hurt the most if bread and corn and wheat products all of a sudden became taboo?  The grain industry?  Monsanto? The more I look into this, the more it spells out cover-up and because this is how the FDA treats this, it instills a lot of fear in me as to how healthy the rest of our food supply is.

The FDA has to know of the damage these grains do to the body when ingested, so why do they allow these industries continue to peddle their wares as if they’re healthy?

The Iowa Corn Fed Beef Ruse

Food, Inc. is a 2008 American documentary film directed by filmmakerRobert Kenner.[4] The Academy Award-nominated film examines corporate farming in the United States, concluding that agribusiness produces food that is unhealthy, in a way that is environmentally harmful and abusive of both animals and employees. The film is narrated by Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser.[5][6]

The film received positive responses and was nominated for several awards, including the Academy Award and the Independent Spirit Awardsin 2009, both for Best Documentary Feature.

The film’s first segment examines the industrial production of meat (chicken, beef, and pork), calling it inhumane and economically and environmentally unsustainable. The second segment looks at the industrial production of grains and vegetables (primarily corn and soy beans), again labeling this economically and environmentally unsustainable. The film’s third and final segment is about the economic and legal power, such as food labeling regulations, of the major food companies, the profits of which are based on supplying cheap but contaminated food, the heavy use of petroleum-based chemicals (largely pesticides and fertilizers), and the promotion of unhealthy food consumption habits by the American public.[4][7] It shows companies like Wal-Mart transitioning towards organic foods as that industry is booming in the recent health movement.

Monsanto, the USDA and the FDA

Food, Inc is an eye opening documentary that deals with the agricultural industry’s influence in the USDA and the FDA, concentrating on the meat packing industry’s influence. In 2008 the Chief of Staff for the USDA was a former chief lobbyist for the beef industry. The head of the FDA was a former executive vice president for the national food processors Association. A majority of the staff at both the FDA and the USDA came from Monsanto or its subsidiaries, posing clear conflicts of interests when it comes to protecting consumers. These industries of Monsanto, the USDA and the FDA are responsible for more death and disease than all violence, which includes war and crime, as well as automobile accidents, all other addictions, including heroin, emphetimines and alcohol.

These industries and agencies are directly responsible for over 43,000,000 deaths each and every year.  That total continues to climb and it will continue until everyone decides that it’s time for a cure.

Decisions have been made in the past that clearly benefited industry while presenting clear dangers to humans. By not only allowing contaminated the food with worthless nutrition values or food contaminated by bacteria to sneak into our food supply, but by polluting our rivers and lakes in the process as well, with contaminated ground water from runoff from chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.

This is just a taste of how unsustainable this is and it all starts with the grain industry, and our insatiable appetites for high sugar food, which is all forced upon up by this industry, the corn producers, wheat growers, and the crop seed companies owned by Monsanto, Novartis, Syngenta, Bayer et al.. Because there food require treatment with medications that this industry controls, they have full control over what happens inside your body, when you bend to their will and buy their products.

The grain industry in Iowa promoted the Iowa corn fed beef, to sell more corn, their largest industry. This had multiple, unforeseen consequences that not only damaged our food supply, but it polluted our resources more than what could have ever been foreseen. Because of our propensity to feed our addiction to sugar, the products that this industry has devised to get us to eat more of their junk food, are putting everyone who is suckered into this cycle, in the hospital with serious disorders. These disorders range from arthritis to cancer to HBP to CVDs and much more.

This is clearly a case where this self policing doesn’t work. It’s killing Americans right now because it doesn’tt. Evidence can be seen in the number of heart disease deaths, cancer deaths, Alzheimer’s deaths, not to mention all the pain, discomfort, and drug abuse caused by the pain. Although this is nice for the profits Monsanto, Syngenta and Bayer who also make drugs that treat the diseases there foods cause, it’s leading our country down a path of destruction that we’ll never recover from if we keep eating the food they advertise. They are playing on the addiction that they’ve inflicted upon the American people as well as the world to pad their profits and boost the influence.

This industry makes sure that sugar gets into baby food, to make sure that every baby who eats it becomes addicted to it, making them lifetime users of their poison. This unwilling addiction to sugar has brought this industry to a level of evil that’s never been seen in any industry. This industry is so intent on keeping us addicted to its lure, simply to increase your profits, that they are now responsible for over 65,753 deaths, worldwide daily. Yes I said 65,753 deaths daily. If this doesn’t bother you, then you have no conscience. Yes this is something to be appalled about and appalled I am and you should be too. This is simply more proof that it’s time for a cure.

50,000 food safety inspections in 1972 to just over nine thousand of them in 2008, the FDA is failing us big time. This is directly related to departmental cutbacks reducing the number of agents available to do the inspections. This is how conservative politicians think this industry and all other industries should police themselves. It would be nice if corporate America but was concerned about more than just their profits, but unfortunately the bottom line is what wins here and the bottom line is greed.

If the FDA can allow a food this dangerous through its monitoring, I’m afraid to even think about what else has snuck through?  The beef industry is already displayed their contempt for regulation through the mass production of beef that their industry is gone last 50 years

Couldn’t this dispute, at least, be closed that wheat can kill? What I would rather ask, was there outside influence in their decision to not issue any warnings? It was recently revealed that the sugar industry took steps to cover up the reports of damage that their food offered, so why wouldn’t it make sense that this closely  related industry, the grain industry, would take those same steps to cover up the same information about what their foods provided?

Was this another case of the industry policing itself and its watchdog, as well? Does this make a solid argument for self policing for corporate entities instead of government regulations? Our health is at stake here and we’ve allowed the FDA to escape judgment. That in my estimation is borderline criminal. 2893 deaths nationally, each day from CVDs, cancer, and Alzheimer disease combined. All three of these disorders are directly due to ECC, excessive carbohydrate consumption, which can be controlled. That’s enough people to wipe out 4 towns, the same size I grew up in. That’s unconscionable and we let it happen. Is that a shame on us for allowing it to happen?

We have direct control of these disorders. We don’t have to let this continue, but we do, simply to feed our addiction. We have a societal addiction to glucose, because it’s not just sugar, it’s what breaks down to glucose, and that includes not only sugar but all carbohydrates that break down to their most basic molecule, glucose. It’s our addiction to this glucose that clouds our judgment, masks our emotions, and controls our desires by gumming up the neurons in our brains every time we eat this food. This is exactly makes it addictive and hands total control over to the glucose, every time we eat it.

Yes, we do have full control over this, and we can stop it, but we have to stop the celebration of our addiction, to stop the addiction itself. To do that we need to instill taxes on the damage it’s doing when you eat this food. It’s time to hit abusers in the pocket book where it hurts the most. This has been successful with cigarettes, why can’t we make it just as successful with glucose? Why can’t we add a glucose tax to sugary drinks and bread and pasta products? These are the products that do the most damage, outside of alcohol which already has its own tax. Why shouldn’t these products have a tax also? When people start to see the real expense in their pocketbooks, they can then equate that expense to the real expense of the devastating effects this food has, that leads to cancer, heart disease, diabetes and dementia. This may be the only manner in which this addiction can be curbed.

Sugar; America’s Worst Addiction,

Confessions of a Reformed Carboholic

Sugar, I love it. I grew up loving it. Because I grew up loving it, I’m now addicted to it. It’s an addiction that was forced upon me by our food industry, telling my mother that she had to make refined and whole grains the most prevalent food in my diet. She fed me this food, supposedly, to keep me healthy. Aren’t whole grains supposed to make you healthy? That was 60 years ago. I’m paying the price for that now, with my arthritis. I was paying the price for it just 30 months ago, by carrying 30 lbs more than what I carry right now and being borderline diabetic and in pain all the time. I’m about to debunk this myth that whole grains are healthy. There is a price to be paid for eating a (starchy) carbohydrate diet and you’re paying it with every sandwich you eat, every corn chip you munch, and every noodle you eat.

My sisters are paying the price for it now, also. They are both obese and diabetic. My father has always exercised to keep his weight down. He’s was always able to burn off the excess glucose, until he was about 35. Even though he’s always jogged every day, since I was in 7th grade, he couldn’t run away from this. After being borderline diabetic he couldn’t change his downhill spiral. He’s now taking an anti-diabetes drug which has several side effects that are initially so small that they aren’t noticed but after time, start to inflict other harm to the body, due to the effects of the chemical changes caused by the medication. His carb diet is starting to lead him down the same path as my mother, who passed away 4 months ago. My mother, in trying to be the best mother and wife she could be, went along with what the FDA, the USDA and the ADA told her because she wanted to do what was right for her family. Guidelines from the ADA telling her that grains needed to be at the base of her all of her meals was what drove her to do this to our family. This is what doomed us to our current list of ailments, ailments like obesity and diabetes, arthritis, cancer, stomach ailments galore, and now, side effects from treatment for those ailments. It all comes along with a carbohydrate diet because all carbs break down into glucose. Even yet, MyPlate.gov suggests that whole grains be a part of a healthy diet. The evidence I’m going to show you is completely contrary to this notion.

Because sugar addiction is America’s biggest addiction, that makes it, its worst addiction. It’s an addiction that everybody grew up with and into. It’s an addiction that’s been with us for as long as we’ve been eating it. It’s an addiction that’s become far worse than it’s ever been, since we’ve been eating it over its 10,000 year history. It’s an addiction that’s built scores of empires, and then tore them all down. This addiction is far worse than any other addiction that plagues America. Whether it be today, yesterday or tomorrow, this addiction is the worst that Man has ever faced or may ever face. This is simply due to its propensity to expand its influence across the whole world. It’s also driven by the greed of those condemned to this addiction. Their desire to feed their own addiction drives them to impose this addiction on the rest of the world, simply so they can make an extra buck. This addiction is at the root of almost every known form of dementia, heart disease, diabetes and everything that comes along with that, like cancers, cardiovascular diseases. The list is endless because sugar’s worst instigator of inflammation, AGEs, or glycation is at the base of an arm long list of disorders.

All of these disorders can be curbed simply by curbing carbohydrate consumption but addiction keeps this from happening. That’s why fighting this addiction in particular is so important. It’s life saving at its simplest, just remove contaminating factors from the food source and the diseases cannot manifest themselves. The contaminating factor in this case? You guessed it, sugar. Sugar addiction is leading our society to the brink of destruction because of the nature of its addiction and what it does to the body. Its continued use only leads to discomfort and death. It’s only redeeming factor is that it tastes good and satiates quickly. This is what makes it so deadly, though.

That’s sad. I have to live with it too. I can’t have what I love, what I’ve been addicted to. I have to say no, to stay healthy. So do you. I know that’s exactly the opposite of what you’ve been told, but what you were told is wrong. For us it’s dead wrong. It should have never been pushed upon us to eat it in the quantities that it was. But pushed upon us it was. And we bought it. We bought into it big time and we’re paying for it now. This is evidenced by the proliferation of Alzheimer’s disease. How many lives does it have to take, before people wake up? How many families does it have to destroy, before people wake up?

Carbolism Should Be Treated Like Alcoholism

We need clinics for sugar addiction and they should be financed by the food industrial complex that imposed this diet on the people who now suffer from the consequences of it. The administration of the clinic though, should be done by trained medical professionals, because this is an addiction and should be treated as such.

Is this something that should be investigated? Should an industry be held accountable for the ruse that’s been pulled on the American people, and now the world? The ruse is that this is healthy food, when it’s really not. Why are they still allowed to claim that it’s healthy? Why are they still, allowed to advertise that it’s healthy? It’s clearly not, and it’s clearly at the root of almost all of the deadliest diseases, that we’re actively fighting right now. Diseases like Atherosclerosis, Endocarditis and Hypertensive heart disease. That’s just the CVD’s. We haven’t even covered the cancers, or dementias. Those lists are much longer.

Can anyone tell me why this is still allowed to be advertised like it is today? It starts with what’s put in baby food for starches and fillers and sweeteners. These fillers satiate babies quickly often putting them right to sleep after a short burst of energy. This is the first indication of sugar addiction and it starts at a young age. This is done for a purpose. That purpose is to addict you to its lure, so you’ll buy into it when you’re an adult.

It continues with your introduction to breakfast cereals and the load of sugars they carry when you see them advertised with the Saturday morning cartoons. I can remember for commercials for Sugar Pops, Sugar Frosted Flakes, and Captain Crunch. It starts young, real young and continues through your youth with candy and soda, and into your adult years with bread and baked goods (cakes, crackers, cookies).

It’s been forced upon us. Nobody has had a choice in this addiction and that is what makes it so lethal. That also makes it profitable for the Pharmaceutical industry. This is what scares me. The Pharmaceutical industry used to be owned by the same industry the provided the crop seed for the farmers that grew the grain that provided the flour to bake all of those loaves of bread that causing so much disease.

The Perfect Ruse

It’s almost the perfect scam. Sell crop seed to farmers that’s been genetically modified, so that it feeds your customer base, food that will require them, in the future to purchase medications from your other companies. How convenient we’ve made it for this industry to take our money. We should be ashamed.

We would be ashamed if we knew that this was done intentionally, especially if it was done for nothing more than profit. That is why this is something that should be investigated. Regardless of how long it takes, we need to know who is responsible. This is a lesson that cannot be lost, like every other study done on these concerns, we cannot allow this to be swept under the rug. Even if they’re no longer around, we need to hold their companies’ accountable. This is the only way we can prevent this from happening in the future.

For 1,000s of years, we’ve been treating the symptoms of the diseases and disorders that carbohydrate digestion cause. Because of our addiction to it, we’ve never looked at the prospect of eliminating the cause completely. When a whole society is addicted to a staple that they’ve eaten their whole lives, how does one tell the truth about something that is so important to everyone on the planet? How does one tell everyone that what they’re eating is killing them slowly, expensively, painfully, and worst of all, undignified because of all the lost memories from brain damage? How does one tell a whole society that a staple that they’ve lived on for close to 10,000 years has been, and continues to be, the one food that creates more disease and illness than any other one food in their diet? How does a world break their addiction, when the addicted are the majority of the world and only 5% of that population can recognize their addiction?

Dr Perlmutter is trying to tell the people and continues to do so. I honestly feel that he thinks as I do, that if we don’t dispel the consumption of these foods, our society is doomed. From what I’ve learned, since I’ve broken the addiction, I see a collapse, due to out of control emotions, due to the wild glucose swings in the blood, making people under the control of a carbohydrate diet, under the control of those who impose this diet on the American public. It’s in their interest to keep America addicted and the best way they can do this, is to tell you that it’s healthy and what you need to keep your body healthy. Only those who want to buy their pharmaceuticals, from them in the future, are ones who should to buy their food products now, because, they eventually will.

By following what little advice I offer, to curb your carbs dramatically and as completely as possible, you can dramatically slow down if not eliminate many of the disorders and diseases within these pages. If it can’t eliminate your disease, it will reduce the expression of your disorder. If it doesn’t cure you, it will definitely extend your life. My goal is to extend it a minimum of 20 years. I would like to see everyone live to be 100 years old, or more. I know this diet lifestyle can do that (depending on your age and degree of addiction of course). To know this yourself, though, you have to change your diet.
