The Supermarket: Questionable Products On The Shelf

 

reading-the-ingredients

This is an article that was sent to me and on checking it they are spot on with their information. Sometimes these people go over board with this sort of information but in this case I think it is worth considering:-  Check labeling on packaging or better still don’t buy anything in packets or tins where possible. Buy organic or alternatively grow a vegetable garden if you have the space and plant fruit trees.  Buy real food and make healthy drinks

 

Supermarket Shelf : Read what you eat and drink.

Anybody who takes Vitamin C (most people should) – avoid the following soft drinks: Sunkist, Fanta, Diet Coke, Sprite, & Pepsi Max.

These drinks contain Sodium Benzoate 211 on the label. A chemical reaction between Vitamin C and Sodium Benzoate creates Benzine, a highly Carcinogenic chemical.

Benzine has the ability to severely damage the DNA in the Mitochondria (powerhouses of the cells. They generate the energy that our cells need to do their jobs. For example, brain cells) to the point that it totally inactivates it, knocks it out altogether. The Mitochondria consumes oxygen to give you energy, and if you damage it, the cell starts to malfunction very seriously, often fatally. A whole array of Diseases has been tied to the damage to the DNA, including
Parkinson’s Disease and quite a lot of neuro-degenerative diseases..

This is a follow-up to the TV stations’ story on Mentos and Diet Coke. Don’t mix these two, they cause a chemical reaction (explosion) in the stomach. It’s not only Mentos but also any mint products. Mint Life Savers, Tic Tac’s, Cool Mint’s, etc. The Mint is not the culprit here but the Aspartame in the diet drinks, 951 on the label. Also avoid 950
Acelsultame F (same thing). Aspartame poisoning has been scientifically linked to 92 Symptoms of disease.

Avoid all Toothpastes made in China! Especially Colgate. They contain Ethylene Glycol. This is an anti-freezing agent, highly toxic and even fatal. It destroys the liver, kidney, lung, blood cells, heart and the nervous system. It is also in some mouth washes, make-up, aftershave, baby powder and wipes, shampoo, and deodorants.

Avoid Smarties; they contain almost every toxic artificial colour on the market. To top it off Smarties are not even made of chocolate. Synthetic chocolate has no nutritional food value whatsoever.

Saving Tip For Today « 8/19/2010

Keep your eyes on the register at your supermarket.

Empty your cart of groceries on to the belt at the register before the assistant starts scanning your items. You can ask the assistant to wait till you are ready. The reason for this is so that you are able to keep an eye on the price of the items being scanned.
Many stores have a “Scan guarantee policy” which means you get the item for free or at a discount if the price the register displays is higher than the real price.
It also enables you to check the prices as the assistant scans them. I have found that often an item that has been reduced does not register at the lower price.
This process can save you quite a few dollars over time.
