Warning… what you don’t know could be killing you!!!

I was sent this warning today, on how a slow Poison, called MSG (Monosodium Glutamate) is hidden behind 25 or more names, such as “Natural Flavoring,” and I’m passing it along FYI (for your information).

I can remember early on, when I was teenager, I could never figure out why such lame brain decisions were coming out of Washington DC. Even as a kid, I knew even I could do a much better of a job, than what they were doing.

I have since learned that everything is not as it appears; and that truly, though our political leaders would like us always to believe that they are always doing everything with only our best interest at heart, on closer examination we find that is not always the case.

As just one case in point: George W. Bush (who also says that he is a Christian), back in March of 2004, he and his corporate supporters were pushing a Bill through Congress. Called the “Personal Responsibility in Food Consumption Act” also known as the “Cheeseburger Bill“.

This sweeping law, had it passed, would have banned anyone from suing food manufacturers, sellers and distributors. Even if it came out that they purposely added an addictive and/or harmful chemical to their foods.

As it turns out, much of the decisions that are being made today, and in the past, by the FDA, are made more to benefit pharmaceutical companies, and large corporate interests, than they are to benefit us, the general public; and truly what you don’t know could kill you!

On closer examination, you will find that the FDA is actually run by people who have come out of the pharmaceutical industry.

Here’s just one example of what I’m talking about:

The FDA made a law that says only a drug can cure a disease. They then go on and define all kinds of diseases (which is why you always seeing all kinds of new diseases that are being discovered). So let’s say you were to develop a disease because you are lacking in vitamin C; and some medical professional were to tell you to take vitamin C; or say a natural foods company comes up with a natural product, and even suggests that vitamin C is the cure for your disease, both the medical professional and the company are actually breaking the law… and can be prosecuted, with the risk of having large fines and even jail time.

This is just another example of why we need a thorough house cleaning in Washington DC, and “We the People” need to take back our government for ourselves… and through the bums out!

That’s just my opinion; but you read on, and you let me know what you think?.

Shalom,

—-ORIGINAL MESSAGE—-

Slow Poisoning MSG (Monosodium Glutamate.) hides behind 25 or more names, such as “Natural Flavoring”

author unknown

MSG hides behind 25 or more names, such as Natural Flavoring.’ MSG is even in your favorite coffee from Tim Horton’s and Starbucks coffee shops!   I wondered if there could be an actual chemical causing the massive obesity epidemic, and so did  John Erb. He was a research assistant at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, and spent years working for the government.  He made an amazing discovery while going through scientific journals for a book he was writing called The Slow Poisoning of America.

In hundreds of studies around the world, scientists were creating obese mice and rats to use in diet or diabetes test studies.  No strain of rat or mice is naturally obese, so scientists have to create them.  They make these creatures morbidly obese by injecting them with MSG when they are first born.

The MSG triples the amount of insulin the pancreas creates, causing rats (and perhaps humans) to become obese.  They even have a name for the fat rodents they create:  ‘MSG-Treated Rats.’

When I heard this, I was shocked.  I went into my kitchen and checked the cupboards and the refrigerator.  MSG was in everything — the  Campbell ‘s soups, the Hostess Doritos, the Lays  flavored potato chips, Top Ramen, Betty Crocker Hamburger Helper,  Heinz canned gravy, Swanson frozen prepared meals, and Kraft salad  dressings,
Especially the ‘healthy low-fat’  ones.

The items that didn’t have MSG marked on the product label had something called ‘Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein,’ which is just another name for Monosodium Glutamate.

It was shocking to see just how many of the foods we feed our children everyday are filled with this stuff.  MSG is hidden under many different names in order to fool those who read the ingredient list, so that they don’t catch on.  (Other names for MSG are  ‘Accent,  ‘Aginomoto,’ ‘Natural Meat Tenderizer,’  etc.)

But it didn’t stop there.

When our family went out to eat, we started asking at the restaurants what menu items contained MSG.  Many employees, even the managers, swore they didn’t use MSG.

But when we ask for the ingredient list, which they grudgingly provided, sure enough, MSG and Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein were everywhere.

Burger King,  McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Taco Bell, every restaurant — even the  sit-down eateries like TGIF, Chili’s, Applebee’s, and Denny’s — use  MSG in abundance.  Kentucky Fried Chicken seemed to be the WORST offender:
MSG was in every chicken dish, salad dressing and gravy.  No wonder I loved to eat that coating on the skin — their secret spice was MSG!

So why is MSG in so many of the foods we eat? Is it a preservative, or a vitamin?

Not according to my friend John Erb.  In his book The Slow Poisoning of America, he said that MSG is added to food for the addictive effect it has on the human body.

Even the propaganda website sponsored by the food manufacturers lobby group supporting MSG explains that the reason they add it to food is to make people eat more.

A study of the elderly showed that older people eat more of the foods that it is added to.  The Glutamate Association lobbying group says eating more is a benefit to the elderly, but what does it do to the rest of us?

‘Betcha can’t eat [just] one,’ takes on a whole new meaning where MSG is concerned!  And we wonder why the nation is overweight!

MSG manufacturers themselves admit that it addicts people to their products.  It makes people choose their product over others, and makes people eat more of it than they would if MSG wasn’t added.

Not only is MSG scientifically proven to cause obesity, it is an addictive substance.  Since its introduction into the American food supply fifty years ago, MSG has been added in larger and larger doses to the pre-packaged meals, soups, snacks, and fast foods we are tempted to eat every day.

The FDA has set no limits on how much of it can be added to food. They claim it’s safe to eat in any amount.  But how can they claim it’s safe when there are hundreds of scientific studies with titles like these:

‘The monosodium glutamate (MSG) obese rat as a model for the study of exercise in obesity.’  Gobatto CA, Mello MA, Souza CT, Ribeiro IA.  Res Commun Mol Pathol Pharmacol.  2002.

‘Adrenalectomy abolishes the food-induced hypothalamic serotonin release in both normal and monosodium glutamate-obese rats.’  Guimaraes RB, Telles MM, Coelho VB, Mori C,  Nascimento CM, Ribeiro.  Brain Res Bull. 2002 Aug.

‘Obesity induced by neonatal monosodium glutamate treatment in spontaneously hypertensive rats:  An animal model of multiple risk factors.’
Iwase M, Yamamoto  M, Iino K, Ichikawa K, Shinohara N, Yoshinari Fujishima.
Hypertens  Res. 1998  Mar.

‘Hypothalamic lesion induced by injection of monosodium glutamate in suckling period and subsequent development of obesity.’  Tanaka K, Shimada M,  Nakao K Kusunoki.  Exp Neurol.  1978 Oct.

No, the date of that last study was not a typo; it was published in 1978…  Both the ‘medical research community’ and ‘food manufacturers’ have known about the side effects of MSG for decades.

Many more of the  studies mentioned in John Erb’s book link MSG to diabetes,  migraines and headaches, autism, ADHD, and even  Alzheimer’s.

So what can we do to stop the food manufactures from dumping this fattening and addictive MSG into our food supply and causing the obesity epidemic we now see?

Several months ago, John Erb took his book and his concerns to one of the highest government health officials in Canada   While he was sitting in the government office,
the official told him, ‘Sure, I know how bad MSG is.  I wouldn’t touch the stuff.’ But this
top-level government official refuses to tell the public what he knows.

The big media doesn’t want to tell the public either, fearing issues with their advertisers.  It seems that the fallout on the fast food industry may hurt their profit margin.  The food producers and restaurants have been addicting us to their products for years, and now we are paying the price for it.  Our children should not be cursed with obesity caused by an addictive food additive.

But what can I do about it?  I’m just one voice!  What can I do to stop the poisoning of our children, while our governments are insuring financial protection for the industry that is poisoning us?

This message is going out to everyone I know in an attempt to tell you the truth that the corporate-owned politicians and media won’t tell you.

The best way you can help to save yourself and your children from this drug-induced epidemic is to forward this article to everyone.   With any luck, it will circle the globe before politicians can pass the legislation protecting those who are poisoning us.

The food industry learned a lot from the tobacco industry. Imagine if big tobacco had a bill like this in place before someone blew the whistle on nicotine?

If you are one of the few who can still believe that MSG is good for us and you don’t believe what John Erb has to say, see for yourself.  Go to the National Library of Medicine at http://www.pubmed.com . Type in the words ‘MSG Obese’ and read a few of the 115 medical studies that appear.

We the public do not want to be rats in one giant experiment, and we do not approve of food that makes us into a nation of obese, lethargic, addicted sheep, feeding the food industry’s bottom line while waiting for the heart transplant, the diabetic-induced amputation, blindness, or other obesity-induced, life-threatening disorders.

With your help we can put an end to this poison.  Do your part in sending this message out by word of mouth, e-mail, or by distribution of this printout to your friends all over the world and stop this ‘Slow Poisoning of Mankind’ by the packaged food industry.

Blowing the whistle on MSG is our responsibility, so get the word out!


Let’s keep America Strong!!!



Let’s keep America Strong!!!

The following letter makes sense to me…

First of all, why don’t we get a president that is an American Citizen?

One that is a Constitutionalist; who loves our country, and will stand by his oath of office, to protect, defend, and enforce our U.S. Constitution?

Let us have a president who is actually a Christian, who believes in the Ten Commandments, and holds to the same set of Judaic/Christian values that have made our country the most blessed on the planet!

Let us have a president who will put an end to the murdering of innocent babies; a president who believes a marriage should be between one man and one woman; who recognizes that people of aberrant sexual lifestyles and persuasions, as long as they aren’t breaking any laws, they already have the same rights as every other American citizen, under the current laws of our land; and the truth be told, most Americans really don’t care, and nor do they want to know, what these people do in the privacy of their own homes, that’s between them and their god, and is no body’s else’s business.

However with that point understood, nevertheless, most Americans are just plain sick and tired of these people trying to shove your perverted lifestyles down everybody else’s throat!

Let us have a President and a Congress that makes it very clear that if you don’t like our Country, if you don’t wish to be an American Citizen, which means that you respect our laws, our history, our multicultural diversity, made up of people of all nationalities, creeds, and colors; and if you don’t want to respect our long established heritage, as a Christian nation, then please don’t let the door hit you on your backside as you go back to wherever the heck it is that you came from!!!

Anyway that’s my two cents on the subject… how do you feel about it?

Shalom,

Skip Barland

An Open Letter to President Obama on the Occasion of 9/11

An Open Letter to President Obama on the Occasion of 9/11

By Faye Parrish


Dear President Obama,

I read of your administrations plan to re-define September 11th as a National Service Day. Sir, it’s time we had a talk.

During your campaign, Americans watched as you made mockery of our tradition of standing and crossing your heart when the Pledge of Allegiance was spoken. You, out of four people on the stage, were the only one not honoring our tradition. We noticed.

During one of your many speeches, Americans heard you say that you intended to visit all 57 states. We noticed.

When Senator McCain leaned over at Ground Zero and gently placed a flower on the memorial, you tossed your flower onto the pile without leaning over. We noticed.

Every time you apologized to other countries for America’s position on an issue, we have wondered why you don’t share our pride in this great country. When you have heard foreign leaders berate our country and our beliefs, you have not defended us. We noticed.

When your pastor of 20 years damned America and said that 9/11 was “America’s chickens coming home to roost” and you denied having heard recriminations of that nature, we wondered how that could be. When you later disassociated yourself from that church and pastor because it was politically expedient to do so, we noticed.

When you announced that you would transform America, we wondered why.

With all her faults, America is the greatest country on earth. Sir, if not for America and the people who built her, you wouldn’t be sitting in the White House now. Prior to your election to the highest office in this country, you were a senator from Illinois and from what we can glean from the records available, not a remarkable one. We noticed.

All through your campaign and even now, you have surrounded yourself with individuals who are basically unqualified for the positions to which you appointed them. Worse than that, the majority of them are people who, like you, bear no special affection or respect for this country and her traditions. We noticed.

You are seven months into your term and every morning millions of Americans wake up to a new horror heaped on us by you. You seek to saddle working Americans with a health care/insurance reform package that, along with cap and trade, will bankrupt this nation. We noticed.

We seek, by protesting, to let our representatives know that we are not in favor of these crippling expenditures and we are labeled “un-American,” and “racist.” We wonder how we are supposed to let you know how frustrated we are. You have attempted to make our protests seem isolated. We noticed.

On September 11, 2001 there were no Republicans or Democrats, only Americans. And we all grieved together and helped each other in whatever way we could. The attack on 9/11 was carried out because we are Americans. And we noticed.

There were many of us who prayed that as a black president you could help unite this nation even more. In seven months you have done more to destroy this nation than anyone since 9/11. You have failed us. We noticed.

September 11th is a day of remembrance for all Americans. You propose to make 9/11 a “National Service Day.” While we know that you may not share our reverence for 9/11, we pray that history will report your proposal as what it is…a disgrace.

When Americans come together again, it will be to remove you from office. You have made a mockery of our Constitution and the office that you hold. You have embarrassed and slighted us in foreign visits and policy.

We have noticed all these things. We will deal with you.

Lord give us leadership like this…


“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice:

but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn”

Proverbs 29:2



Click here and listen to:

Allen West speaks about Islam

This is the caliber of people we need at the helm of our nation!!!


When it comes to knowing the best course for a country to take, or for an individual, the wisest and absolute best advice you can get comes from God’s Word (the Holy Bible), in whatever God says on any given subject.

We are told in the Bible (in Proverbs 9:10) that: “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.”

In Proverbs 29:2, we are told: “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.”

Folks, look around you and read the handwriting on the wall! As God once spoke to King Belshazzar, of the once great Babylonian empire:

“MENE, MENE, TEKEL, and PHARSIN”

This is the interpretation: MENE, God has numbered the days of your kingdom and brought it to an end; TEKEL, you have been weighed on the scales and found wanting; PERES, your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians.[

As history shows, that very night, the great and mighty empire of Babylon fell.

Likewise we are there ourselves, folks, as many nations who have gone before us; and may God help us if we can’t see the handwriting on the wall; and discern that our nations also is in serious trouble today, as these people who are at the helm of our country, who are directing and making the decisions for our nation’s future, and the future of generations to come, are about as far away from God and His ways as anyone can be!

In fact, as Billy Graham once said, “If God doesn’t judge our nation, He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.”

As just one example, this is how far our society today has drifted away from the God of the Bible, in that for years now, for several generations, as it is even today, we have young people are who are being taught in our public schools, and in our secular colleges and universities, this nonsense called “situation ethics,” which says the ends justifies the means.

This is our problem, in that we’ve had several generations now who have grown up where their only moral compass, that is driving their decisions, is not based on anything the Bible says; but rather it is based upon something called “Political Correctness,” where everyone makes decisions based upon whatever the current flavor of the month happens to be, according to the ever changing winds of the political atmosphere at the time; or they make their decisions based soley upon what seems good and right to them, personally… with no attention given whatsoever as to what God might have to say, or what the Bible teaches.

So consequently, we have politicians who get elected to office by saying what they think the people want to hear, but they never follow through and keep their promises.

As just one example of what I’m talking about, just listen to the current man who now sits in the White House.

Listen to these promises that he made in the past, in order to get elected; and then compare that to what he has done in the resent passage of several pieces of legislation, which are costing us literally hundreds of billions of dollars, where we didn’t have the open forums and opportunity to review and read about them, and what they contained, as he promised; but rather they were rammed through both houses, without even our legislators having the opportunity to understand or read what was in them… and in doing so, Obama broke everyone of his promises to the American people, regarding transparency and openness.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfu1_Scgyow

Now mind you, this is also the same guy who says that he is a Christian:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tCAffMSWSzY&feature=player_embedded#!

Here is another huge reason why our nation is in trouble today; and it has to do with the way we are raising our children, and what they are being taught in our public school system today.

We are totally dropping the ball here, folks, in that our entire public educational system, at all levels, instead of teaching (as we once did) about what the Bible says, about the Ten Commandments, and the difference between right and wrong; we are instead teaching our children that belief in God, and the knowledge of His Word (The Bible), that both are absolutely irrelevant to anything that is of any consequence or importance in their life… and as I’ve said, this has been going on for several generations!

So is it any wonder that our nation is where it is today?

After having had several generations that have been taught this nonsense, we can plainly see the results in that we have a nation today, where more so than at any other time in our history, we can say that the blind are leading the blind… and if we aren’t careful, just as the Bible warns will happen, we will all fall into the ditch, if we fail to wake up and repent!

Let us not be deceived by lying spirits and corrupt politicians, with hidden agendas; but rather let’s stop this present downward spiral that our nations is taking, and let’s get righteous men and women in positions of leadership, who are there to represent our interest, instead of their own, and who also have a personal relationship and reverence for the God of the Bible! Selah

WOW!!!

STOP

This is what we call, A Truly Great American!

Talk about telling it like it is.

This should be required listening to all in the U.S.

Allen West for President!

Impressive, I believe we’ll be seeing more of Lt. Col. West in the future...

Below is a video clip of a speech given by Lt.Col. (retd) Allen West who served as a commander in Iraq, and talking about Islam.  Listen to this man, and scroll barely down under his speaking platform, where you will not find his words printed on the screen as he speaks.  This man put Barack Hussein Obama, some of our leaders, politicians and the media to shame in his speech and never called any by name. You will probably listen to it more than once.
