    Pesticides on Produce

    Pesticides on produce - buy organic to avoid these pesticides...some produce is more susceptible to absorbing pesticides. Produce with a covering you discard would have less residue but would still be within the product. The less toxins you intake, the less damage/stress to your system - some do not leave, hang around in your organs/tissues. These are the top 3 and as you can see, some toxins found are banned including DDT - oh, thought we had regulations? Oh but the health risk ones are ok'd - some regulations!

    Organic farming methods solve a lot of these problems.

    I know. It's not as expensive as it used to be though. The more organic they grow, the lower the price. Grow more organic.

    DEC 21, 2015 @ 04:56 PM 70,665 Quashing Consumers' Right-To-Know, Congress Repeals Country-Of-Origin-Labeling For Beef And Pork



    Nancy Fink Huehnergarth , CONTRIBUTORI examine the impact of our food environment and food policy. Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own.


    U.S. consumers will no longer see country-of-origin-labeling on beef and pork. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)

    That next steak or pork chop you buy at the grocery store could be from Mexico and beyond, but you'll never know it.

    On Friday, Congress repealed the country-of-origin-labeling rule (COOL) on beef and pork after the World Trade Organization (WTO) imposed $1 billion in retaliatory import tariffs against United States if the rule was not overturned. The repeal was part of the omnibus spending bill signed by President Obama on Friday.

    COOL mandates labels on packaging that reveal the country (or countries) where the meat animal was born, raised and slaughtered. While beef and pork will no longer have to comply with COOL rules, chicken and lamb must still be labeled.

    Canada and Mexico had argued that the mandatory U.S. labeling program discriminated against meat imports and violated WTO limits on what sorts of product-related “technical regulations” WTO signatory countries are permitted to enact. Meatpackers also complained that the cost of complying with the COOL program was too burdensome. The United States has lost two rulings and two appeals with the WTO regarding COOL since 2011. The import tariffs were authorized by the WTO on December 7th.


    After the repeal, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said in a statement: "Effective immediately, USDA is not enforcing the COOL requirements for muscle cut and ground beef and pork." He reassured consumers that “all imported and domestic meat will continue to be subject to rigorous inspections by USDA to ensure food safety.”

    Critics of the repeal said that the WTO overturned a common sense label supported by a majority of Americans. 90% of those surveyed in 2013 favored country-of-origin-labeling for fresh meat sold in stores.

    “Congress willingly kowtowed to international trade tribunals to gut COOL and even tossed out the labels for ground meats that the WTO ruled were totally trade-legal—a holiday gift to the meatpacking industry from Congress,said Food & Water Watch Executive Director Wenonah Hauter.

    Revealed: Shocking list of popular foods and drinks readily available in U.S. grocery stores that are BANNED in other countries because their chemicals are deemed 'dangerous'


    • In Singapore, you can get sentenced to 15 years in prison and a $500,000 fine for using a chemical in food products that's common in frozen dinners
    • Mtn Dew and products used to keep carpets from catching on fire are made from the same chemical
    • A chemical found in Chex Mix is known to cause cancer in rats

    If you enjoy snacks and drinks like Mtn Dew, Chex Mix, Hungry Man frozen dinners, or roughly 80 percent of all the packaged foods sold in your average, American grocery store, you may want to sit down before reading this. Many of the chemicals found in America's most common foods are considered to be so unhealthy that they're actually ILLEGAL in other countries.

    A new book on nutrition first highlighted by BuzzFeedlists six food additives that are found in a wide range of popular groceries sanctioned by the Food and Drug Administration, but foreign governments have determined to be too dangerous to allow their citizens to consume.


    Extreme! Mt. Dew is made with a chemical that also is used to prevent carpets from catching on fire


    Bubble gag: Bubble Yum contains a chemical that is known to cause cancer in rats

    'Rich Food, Poor Food' by Doctor Jayson Calton and Mira Calton, a certified nutritionist, features a list of what the authors call 'Banned Bad Boys' - a list of the ingredients, where they're banned and what caused governments to ban them.

    One of the most common 'Bad Boys' is different variations of food coloring, which actually is made from petroleum and is found in everyday items like soda, sports drinks, mac and cheese, cake, candy and several other common, American products.

    The chemicals used to make these different dyes have proven to cause various different cancers and can even potentially mutate healthy DNA.


    Olestra is a fat substitute. It also causes a dramatic depletion of fat-soluble vitamins and carotenoids


    Petroleum Loops: fruit loops are delicious - and made from a product that's made out of the same stuff that makes gasoline

    European countries like Norway, Finland, France and Austria all have banned at least one variation of petroleum-containing food coloring.

    Another common additive banned in other countries but allowed in the U.S. is Olestra, which essentially is a fat substitute found in products that traditionally have actual fat.

    For example, low-fat potato chips like Ruffles Lite, Lays Wow and Pringles fat-free chips all contain Olestra - which is shown to cause the depletion of fat-soluble vitamins. Different brands of fat-free ice cream and mayonnaise at one time also contain the chemical.

    Olestra has been banned in several countries, including the United Kingdom and Canada.

    In 2003, the FDA lifted a requirement forcing companies that use Olestra in their products to include a label warning consumers that the food their eating could cause 'cramps and diarrhea,' despite the fact that the agency received more than 20,000 reports of gastrointestinal complaints among olestra eaters.


    Do you like citrus drinks, like Mt. Dew, Squirt or Fresca? Then you also like brominated vegetable oil, which is banned in more than 100 countries because it has been linked to basically every form of thyroid disease - from cancer to autoimmune diseases - known to man.

    In Singapore you can get up to fifteen years in prison and penalized nearly half a million dollars in fines for using an ingredient found in common U.S. bread products


    Hungry? 1 1/2 pounds of food (and chemicals used to make bleach and rubber yoga mats)

    Other products made from bromine: chemicals used to keep carpets from catching on fire and for disinfecting swimming pools.

    Other food products made from brominated vegetable oil include New York brand flatbreads, bagel chips, Baja Burrito wraps and other bread products.

    Of brominated vegetable oil, the FDA says it is approved 'for flavoring oils used in fruit-flavored beverages, for which any applicable standards of identity do not preclude such use, in an amount not to exceed 15 parts per million in the finished beverage.'

    Then there's things like Hungry Man frozen dinners, which will fill you up - with azodicarbonamide, a chemical used make things like bleach and rubber yoga mats.

    Most frozen potato and bread products - like different varieties of McCain brand french fries - contain the chemical, as well as several store brand bread products.

    Azodicarbonamide is known to induce asthma, and has been banned in Australia, the U.K. and most other European countries. If you were to use it as a food ingredient in Singapore, you could face up to 15 years in prison and a $500,000 fine.

    According to the FDA, Azodicarbonamide is 'approved to be a bleaching agent in cereal flour' and is 'permitted for direct addition to food for human consumption.'

    The final chemicals on the list - butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) and butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) - are found in everyday products like Post, Kellogs and Quaker brand cereals, as well as Diamond Nuts, Chex Mix and gum brands like Wrigley's, Trident, Bazooka and Bubble Yum.

    Both BHA and BHT are waxy solids made from petroleum and are known to cause cancer in rats. It's banned in Japan, England and several other European countries.

    Hard to believe all these adulterants are allowed in our food and our meats w/o country of origin. Groups fight long and hard to preserve integrity in the food chain but it seems industry has congress' ear.

    Shop @ to avoid pesticides. Areas have different suppliers but can find good deals on organics in season and even supermarkets now are stocking frozen organic fruits/vegetables often on sale. They also have a small selection of steroid/antibiotic free meats.

    In buying other than fresh or the simple frozen items, read labels, if you don't now what the ingredients are, don't buy it. Same for shampoos, soaps, colognes (although colognes do not have to expose their ingredients) just buy natural oils, they have delightful scents naturally. The most expensive perfumes/colognes are filled with toxins & hormone disruptors ..only way they can get the fragrance to last and it lasts for weeks in a room occupied by a user of them.

    It is a chore but so is sitting in the doctors office or hospital for testing or surgery.
