Did You Know

Louisiana House Bill 195 bans cash for second hand transactions. (7)

US Senate passes 'indefinite detention' bill.  If you are a suspected terrorist you can be detained with no trial, and no lawyer. (7)

What is a suspected terrorist?  Having more than 7 days of food makes you a suspected terrorist.  Missing fingers, and buying flashlights are also reasons someone could be considered a terror suspect. (1)

Something called TBHQ is found in frozen, packaged, or pre-made processed foods with long shelf lives such as frozen meals, crackers, chips, cereal bars and fast food. (2)  What is TBHQ?  It's butane. Yum.

Cows milk is full of estrogen.  Unlike cows of previous generations, today's dairy cows are kept pregnant nearly all the time.  Milk from a cow in the late stage of pregnancy contains up to 33 times as much of a signature estrogen compound (estrone sulfate) than milk from a non-pregnant cow. (3)

There is propylene glycol in cake mixes, salad dressings, low fat ice creams and dog food.  So what is propylene glycol?  Oh, it's just this little thing called antifreeze. (2)

There is also wood pulp in your artificially flavored yogurt, baked goods, candy and sodas. (2)

There is also something called castoreum that is used to make artificial raspberry flavoring.  But where does the castoreum come from?  It's kind of organic being as it comes from the anal glands of beavers. (2)

Sodium nitrates are in deli meats, hot dogs, etc.  They have also been linked to gastric cancer and oesophageal cancer. (4)

There are parabens in deodorant, shampoo, makeup, lotions and oral care products.  Not to mention being found in processed food items and some pharmaceutical products.  Why would I want to steer clear of parabens?  Oh, only because parabens are found in virtually all breast cancer tumors. (5)

Have you heard of senate bill s510 that was passed?  It makes it illegal to grow, share, trade or sell homegrown food.  (6)

It's insane the laws that have passed and are in effect.  It makes me afraid for where we are headed.  Why are Americans so unhealthy?  Well, maybe it's the chemicals we're eating on an everyday basis!  The worst part of all this is most of the laws passed some time ago and I am just now hearing about them.  It's also amazing these food additives have been used for years now but we are just now learning about them and their adverse effects.

Have you heard of these laws and facts before now?  Do they concern you?  What are your thoughts?
