Titanium Dioxide in Foods and Cosmetics May Harm Your Brain

Candies, sweets and chewing gum, along with toothpaste and sunscreen, are the common sources of the highest levels of titanium dioxide nanoparticles.

Trying to keep informed about the toxins in our food, cleaning, personal care products (clothing, cookware, furniture, building materials) & our environment, water & even our technology is exhausting!  One option ?  make your own when you can and it’s fun-toothpaste, deodorant, soap, cleaning supplies-i even make my own food! We all know by now that all that processed stuff isn’t the real thing…

Watch out for…

1)All commercial pet food – i now believe in a raw food diet for pets after my experiences this last decade. Even my cats will switch from Iams which they do love but can’t trust any longer  2)Nano wrapping on organic products – compromises organic product
3)the words “Natural flavor” the divine right was given to these biotech giants to use these words for a GE fake flavoring:
Note: and it must take up alot of room. On my pet food it’s right after all the GE grain filler & before the GE fake vitamins B2 riboflavin and B6,B12 etc. And absorbic acid (Vitamin C) but usually this isn’t made in the US, so should be usually GE free. In rating the pet foods- one woman was reviewing every ingredient and couldn’t identify one called “natural flavor” & couldn’t get the company to respond to enlighten her further,  but I know why they don’t want to answer…somewhere else I found out what “natural flavor” is now and its certainly not organic or non gmo.  More on this soon.                                            4) If ingredient is just sugar and doesn’t identify it as organic or cane it’s probably GE sugar beet.  I just get good old C&H if I can’t get organic cane & use stevia a lot               5)Pet food companies cheating on the organic rule ; to be organic, a product must be 95% at least, organic and other 5% still has to be non gmo; I saw a company word a label on their “organic” pet food so that that last 5% may have genetically altered materials that are “tested to be similar or the same as its counterpart”, which I do not trust. The FDA lets untested dangerous drugs on the market – why trust them on this?  Watch out, are they going to do this to human food too? GE crop or seed raised “organically” & so are considered organic? NO-  won’t work for me.  Best bet is to buy 100% organic from trustworthy company assuring product will be non gmo.  If the FDA declares that there is no difference between GM food and natures food, which they seem to be under enormous pressure from the Big 6 to do, then we are losing alot of options, and ability to choose our food at that point. Apparently, the FDA feels it would just confuse us consumers too much if we had all that information! Condescending, huh? They just don’t want us to know, so that we all go happily along plucking their products off the shelf & paying hard earned money for cheap junk, trusting that it’s safe.   Well, it may be much more difficult to ferret out non-gmo foods – just skipping the grocery store entirely is my goal under those circumstances; there will be no way to guarantee that a product off the shelf is pure and free from GE cells; even with an organic label anymore. I will have to deal with companies whose business is strictly dedicated to being gmo free. We’ll keep watching this struggle between consumers and government agencies like the FDA in bed with big business. I have a feeling it’s just too much power to fight, but i’m not going to give it up, i just think of my kids and i’m ready to continue….
