E160a: Carotenes

Available as both synthetic and natural, companies do not have to specify which one they use.

NATURAL beta carotene has been shown to be a powerful cancer preventive substance when ingested with natural vitamin E, vitamin C, selenium and zinc.

NOTE: Do not take zinc sulfate as it has been shown to cause cancer. (“Cancer-Causing Agents” by Ruth Winter.)

It has also been proven to reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, and strengthen the immune system.

SYNTHETIC beta carotene has been shown to increase the risk of cancer risk and to increase the death rates among smokers.

NOTE: If you buy beta-carotene capsules, or tablets etc. purchase only those made by companies  that list beta-carotene as natural and that list the source of the beta-carotene- which is usually Blakeslea trispora ( which is a variety of fungus), Dunaliella salina algae or red palm oil-on the label and/or in their most recent catalogue. 

The word “natural” without stating the source on either the label or in their catalogue  means nothing legally.

Almost all beta - carotene supplements do not specify the source of the beta-carotene.

Do not buy natural beta carotene extracted from carrots or carrot oil. It is extracted with the extremely dangerous solvent hexane, and hexane residue will always remain in the product. Hexane has been proven to cause birth defects, DNA damage and cancer.

Ideally, natural beta-carotene (with the source given) should always contain natural Vitamin E, which is a safe preservative.

In cosmetics it is declared as C.I.75130

NOTE: Cooked carrots are a rich source of beta-carotene. Try to buy only organic carrots as carrots are heavily sprayed with pesticides. (See www.ewg.org)

Fat or oil must be eaten at the same time for the body to be able to absorb the beta-carotene and to process it into Vitamin A.

Natural beta-carotene cannot be converted into Vitamin A in the body by diabetics, infants and people with gall bladder disorders or thyroid disorders.

E160b: Annato, Bixin, Norbxin

Available naturally in large quantities in tomatoes- which release more lycopene when they are cooked- and especially in already cooked concentrated tomato products such as tomato paste etc.

NOTE:Fat or oil must be eaten at the same time for the body to be able to absorb the lycopene.

Natural lycopene has proven to be a powerful anti-cancer agent.

It is impossible to produce asbestosfri talc or talc without asbestos-like  fibers.

Asbestos- free talc just means that the talc contains a maximum of 10% asbestos fibers which is still very dangerous..

Never use talcum powder on your baby or yourself!

Talc is often found in health food products such as vitamins, minerals, and herbs in tablets and capsules.

Talc is always used in chewing gum- hidden under the name of gum base- and is always absorbed along with up to 200 other hidden ingredients  sublingually (under the tongue) everytime you chew gum. 

See Gum Base in " Dangerous Food Additives without E Numbers

TALC is widely used in cosmetics-including in health food and organic makeup!

Read the ingredients !

Talc can easily be inhaled when using rouge, powder, mascara etc. and swallowed through lipstick.

Talc is found  in almost all cat sand  from which you and your cat inhale it- use only "cat litter" which  made of paper pulp.

Japan has the highest rate of  stomach cancer in the world.

Food scientists believe it is due to the fact that the rice sold in Japan has talc containing chalk added to it to make it whiter.

Use  sanitary napkins and tampons made of untreated cotton  or organic cotton,which does not contain talc and gloves and condoms which are not powdered.

"Natracare "sanitary napkins for women are made from  from 100% organic cotton and are free of talc and dioxins.

Additives E570-E999

E570: Fatty acids

-also known as stearic acid.

The fatty acids which are found naturally in all animal fats and vegetable oils are safe.

However, as a food additive it is almost always made from highly toxic cottonseed oil and has caused:

  • endocrine disruption
  • neurotoxicity- disorders of the brain and nervous system
  • cancer
  •  and weakens the immune system
  • Cotton is classified  an industrial crop -not a food crop (even though the cottonseeds can br pressed for their oil)-and can therefore be sprayed with deadly pesticides that are  so dangerous that they are not allowed to be used on food crops.These extremely deadly pesticides concentrate in the oil. 


It is found in  many tablets and capsules, which contain vitamins, minerals and herbs and  which are sold  in ordinary shops and health food stores.

E574: Gluconic acid

  • can damage the intestinal lining

 

E575: Glucono-delta-lactone

See E574.

 

E576: Sodium gluconate

See E574.

 

E577: Potassium  gluconate 

See E574.

 

E578: Calcium gluconate

Can cause brain disorders and intestinal disorders and is incompatible with many medications.

See E574.

 

E579: Ferrous gluconate

Linked to:

  • stomach pains
  • cancer.

 

Ferrous gluconate  is found  in many iron supplements, vitamin and mineral tablets, capsules and mixtures sold in ordinary shops  and in health food stores.

 Always read the ingredients of all foods,drinks and supplements etc. !

It is also used in some iron fortified foods such as baby food etc.- and is often only labelled as " Iron." 

The same information about E579  applies to:

- E585  ferrous lactate 

- ferrous sulphate

- ferric pyrophosphate

- sodium ferric pyrophoste

 Ferrous fumerate and iron picolinate are safe and are much better absorbed forms of iron.

See my book for more information on iron.

 

E585: Ferrous lactate 

See E579.

 

E586: 4-Hexyl-resorcinal

Linked to:

  • endocrine disruption
  • cancer
  • toxic to the reproductive system

 

E620: Glutamic acid

L-glutamic acid is  a naturally occurring amino acid  found in various foods and is always a naturally bound amino acid, which is always bound to other amino acids and contains no contaminants.

( In a few fermented foods such as miso and tamari sauce it can be found naturally unbound.)

E620 is a manufactured, highly refined, isolated and  unbound, chemical containing L-glutamic acid and dangerous pollutants that always contains D-glutamic acid (a proven neuropoisan), pyroglutamin acid and other harmful pollutants such as mono-and dichlopropnols  which are not removable.

One cannot compare naturally  bound glutamic acid with a man- made, chemically processed, isolated, unbound amino acid  which is full of  dangerous contaminants ! 

Yet the food industry says  that they are the same!

This new hazardous chemical E620 is also called " PFGA," or " Processed Free Glutamic Acid because it is ( highly) processed and is highly refined and " free "( unbound to other amino acids.)

PFGA is found  in E620- E625 and has caused:

  • ADD-Attention Deficit Disorder
  • ADHD-Attention Deficit Hyperacitivity Disorder
  • eating disorders
  • obesity
  • birth defects
  • brain damage- it destorys  brain cells in the area of the hypothalamus
  • Chinese Restaurant Syndrome (CRS) with symptoms that are almost identical to a heart attack
  • convulsions
  • depression, including severe depression
  • personality disorders, paranoia, etc
  • schizophrenia
  • suicidal tendencies
  • fibromyalgia
  • learning and memory difficulties
  • glaucoma
  • eye injuries
  • female hormonal disorders
  • high blood sugar
  •  uncontrolled anger
  • liver damage
  • headache
  • nerve cell for interference
  • epilepsy
  • neuropathic pain
  • asthma
  • sweating
  • dizziness
  • reproductive disorders
  • retinal destruction
  • facial swelling
  • severe allergic reactions
  • sterility
  • stroke
  • growth disorders
  • anxiety
  • endocrine disruption
  •  and has shown brain damage in 14 different species of animals tested

 

NOTE!

  1. The PFGA in E620- E625 affects the hypothalamus which controls the body's ability to know when it is satisfied when we eat, and thereby creates  constant hunger .It also affect the endocrine system, hormone levels and reduce blood sugar levels etc. These dangerous effects creates many kinds of serious medical disorders.
  2. Virtually  all Asian cooking  (Chinese,Indian, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Malaysian, Mongolian,Thai Vietnamese etc.)  always add some form of PFGA in the form of  E620-E625 to their food .They do this to add a meaty flavor to their food .
  3.  Virtually all store  bought Asian food  contains it also  but it is very often not listed on the label. If you eat at  any Asian  restaurant make sure you speak with the chef and insist that it should not be added.
  4. PFGA can also be created  in food through various  processing  methods such as when vegetarian " meat " products are created from:  soy protein ,  rice protein,  pea protein,  wheat protein,   or any kind of vegetable protein such as Quorn etc.  including also whey protein made from milk products.  ALL of these " proteins" contain PFGA.
  5. Always remember that food- even it states  " MSG  Free" or " Monosodium Glutamate Free "on the packaging- can still contain PFGA by the way it is produced.

If you buy unprocessed organic ingredients without any food additives or added  flavors and prepare it  yourself, you don't have to worry about PFGA and E620-E625!

ALL the following products contain PFGA or have PFGA  in them due to the processing methods used- even if they are  organic products!

For a more detailed information on PFGA go to the excellent website www.truthinlabeling.org and/or read:"Excitotoxins; the taste that kills "by Dr. Russell l. Blaylock.

Many synthetic sweeteners contain E954. Read the ingredients!

E954 was first permitted in the United States, then was forbidden, then was for only allowed one year at a time and is now  allowed in the United States.

It is allowed  because rats do not metabolize E954 in the same way as humans- so when rats were tested with E954 and  got cancer it was considered that it could not apply to humans. But E954 still has caused  cancer in other test  animals-such as mice- that metabolize E954  in the same way as humans!
