After poising Americans for decades, Campbell Soup Company is finally making some changes. Donâ€™t think they are making these changes because they care about your health. They are doing it because they are losing sells. This is another sign of the rising consciousness of the people. â€“MrT.
Campbell’s to remove MSG from kids’ soups, announces phase-out of artificial additives
(NaturalNews) Major progress is being made at Campbell Soup Company. The leading soup manufacturer has announced they will be introducing a new line of organic products to appeal to rising tide of health conscious consumers. Notably, the company also has plans to remove an artificial additive called monosodium glutamate (MSG). This synthetic, salt form of an amino acid was first isolated from a Japanese sea weed called kombuin after World War II. It is commonly used by food manufacturers today to addict consumers’ brains to common food products.
As an excitotoxin, MSG signals the brain to produce excess dopamine, making the person feel good about the food product they are eating. This tricky flavor-enhancing technique is one of the reasons why consumers become addicted to certain processed foods and eat them over and over again.
Campbell Soup Company raising the bar for both the food and vaccine industry
MSG is manufactured into a host of common products including canned soups, barbecue sauce, salad dressings, soy sauces, flavored crackers, bouillon cubes, and infant formulas. It’s also an additive in some vaccines. MSG is said to protect the vaccine from changes in humidity and heat, but it also negatively affects the mind and body of a person once consumed or injected.
Whether it’s in soups or vaccines, MSG can destroy the nervous system of the recipient. As an excitotoxin, MSG stimulates neuron receptors to their max, causing the neuron cells to die off. This inflammation can readily occur in the hypothalamus region of the brain, negatively affecting metabolism, pituitary hormones, and sleep, while wreaking havoc on the activities of the entire autonomic nervous system. The hypothalamus region is especially vulnerable to onslaught because there is no blood-brain barrier protecting it. This renders vaccine-injected MSG even more dangerous because it has an easy entrance into the bloodstream, bypassing gastrointestinal filters straight to the unprotected regions of the brain.
If companies can remove MSG from their deceptive food product chemistry, then vaccine manufacturers can get rid of it too!
(They could but they wonâ€™t. Vaccines are part of a bigger agenda. â€“MrT.)
Campbell Soup Company is not only giving the food industry something better to strive for, but they are also raising the bar for manufacturers by simply eliminated synthetic MSG.
“What we’ve been doing is reinventing the company for a better growth trajectory,” said Denise Morrison, Campbell’s chief executive, in an interview. “We recognize an important part of that is reshaping the portfolio.”
Part of this revamped portfolio includes a new line of organic Plum line purees for children and a fresh selection of Pepperidge Farm Goldfish crackers made with organic wheat. By 2018, the company promises to remove all colors and flavors from its North American market. The Pepperidge Farm fresh breads will be getting a makeover too as the company takes out high fructose corn syrup from the bread. And, in 2016, all new products will be free of corn syrup too. (I believe they are going to be forced to do it sooner than 2018 if they expect to stay in business. â€“MrT.)
The cumulative negative effect of all these food additives is taking a toll on the population. People are figuring out what’s making them suppressed, diseased, depressed and brain damaged. The demand for cleaner food and cleaner medicine continues to grow.
Companies looking to survive the rising storm of consumers wanting to take their health back should follow the example of Campbell and start removing those sinister artificial ingredients (like MSG) that are tricking the brain and exciting neurons to their death.
It appears these diet drinks just cause more disease raking up more profits for the pharmaceutical companies. â€“MrT.
Artificial sweeteners cause heart failure, diabetes, high blood pressure and other health problems, study suggests
(NaturalNews) In light of a recent study finding that nearly 200,000 people per year are killed by sugar-sweetened beverages, some people might be tempted to switch to diet soft drinks instead. The information from this study was presented at the 63rd Annual Scientific Session of the American College of Cardiology in 2014, where they discussed how diet soft drinks can cause many of the same health problems as sugar-sweetened drinks.
Specifically, the led by Gitanjali Singh, Ph.D., found that diet soft drinks increased healthy postmenopausal women’s risk of heart disease, heart attack and stroke.
Two drinks per day = 50 percent more likely to die
The research was conducted on 59,614 women participating in the ongoing Women’s Health Initiative study, constituting one of the largest ever study of its kind. Based on self-reports of diet drink consumption, the researchers divided the women into four groups: Those who drank two or more diet drinks per day; those who drank five to seven per week; those who drank one to four per week; and those who drank zero to three per month. A drink was defined as a 12-ounce artificially sweetened beverage, including fruit drinks.
After an average follow-up of 8.7 years, women who drank two or more per day were more likely to have suffered from heart disease, congestive heart failure, heart attack or stroke than women in the other three groups. They were 30 percent more likely to have had a attack or stroke than women who had less than one diet drink per week, and 50 percent more likely to have died from a heart-related disease.
In general, the women with the highest diet beverage consumption tended to be younger and were more likely to smoke and to have diabetes, high blood pressure and a higher body mass index. But their increased rates of cardiovascular problems remained even after the scientists adjusted for these risk factors, along with others including exercise, calorie intake, salt intake, sugar-sweetened beverage intake, use of hormone therapy and high cholesterol.
“This is one of the largest studies on this topic, and our findings are consistent with some previous data, especially those linking diet drinks to the metabolic syndrome,” lead investigator Dr. Ankur Vyas said.
Because the was designed only to look for correlations, the researchers could not prove that the diet drinks caused the observed effect.
But many prior studies have linked the artificial sweetener , widely used in diet beverages, to a variety of health problems. Specifically, aspartame has been linked to cancer, behavioral problems and neurological disorders. Symptoms reported by consumers include headaches, insomnia and even seizures.
Public finally waking up?
The new findings are of significant public health importance, Vyas said, noting that about 20 percent of the U.S. population drinks a diet beverage on any given day, according to 2009-2010 data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Despite the popularity of these drinks, little research has been done into their cardiovascular effects.
“It’s too soon to tell people to change their behavior based on this study,” Vyas said. “However, based on these and other findings we have a responsibility to do more research to see what is going on and further define the relationship, if one truly exists. This could have major public implications.”
Fortunately, the U.S. public may already be waking up to the dangers of sweetened beverages, of both the sugary and diet variety. According to beverage industry experts, growing concern over obesity and over the health effects of sweetened drinks are causing sales of these products to drop drastically.
More people power at work. â€“MrT.
56,000 Signatures Convince Cheesecake Factory to Use Cage Free Eggs
Another victory added to the list
August 6, 2015
After more than 56,000 people presented by Change.org and other animal rights activists put some additional pressure on the large US restaurant chain, the Cheesecake Factory has committed to using only cage free eggs at their dining establishments.
It is becoming well-known thatÂ purchasing eggsÂ from factory farms is inherently supporting cruelty imposed on animals by the masses.Â It isÂ no good for the animals, no good for people, and certainly no good for the environment.
You can see a brief video about factory farming .Â I warn you, though, this video is a bit graphic. It is, however,Â important for people to realize what really goes on at a factory farm.
The chain says that they will â€˜â€™ to be sure that animals are cared for throughout their entire life cycleâ€¦
â€œâ€¦[and will adhere to] the foundation of the Animal Welfare Guidelines is based on the belief that every animal has intrinsic rights and should have basic freedoms during their entire life cycle, including:
Freedom from hunger and thirst
Freedom from living in discomfort
Freedom from pain
Freedom to express normal species behavior
Freedom from fear and distressâ€
They have also promised to:
â€œ. . .set specific standards in such areas as space and density, use of antibiotics, hormones and feed additives, physical alterations, bedding and housing, social behaviors, environmental conditions, and transparency in treatment.â€
The Cheesecake Factory has over 200 locations all over America, so their actions, like those of chains like ChipotleÂ (who has alsoÂ committed to more of doing business) will hopefully reverberate throughout the food industry.
