Scary Food: 20 Practical uses for Coca Cola – Proof that Coke does not belong in the human body

Scary Food Coke20 Practical uses for Coca Cola – Proof that Coke does not belong in the human body

Let’s have a look at “the anatomy” of one of the most advertised products

To prove Coke does not belong in the human body, here are 20 practical ways you can use Coke as a domestic cleaner:

1. Removes grease stains from clothing and fabric

2. Removes rust; methods include using fabric dipped in Coke, a sponge or even aluminum foil. Also loosens rusty bolts

3. Removes blood stains from clothing and fabric.

4. Cleans oil stains from a garage floor; let the stain soak, hose off.

5. Kills slugs and snails; the acids kills them.

6. Cleans burnt pans; let the pan soak in the Coke, then rinse.

7. Descales a kettle (same method as with burnt pans)

8. Cleans car battery terminals by pouring a small amount of Coke over each one.

9. Cleans your engine; Coke distributors have been using this technique for decades.

10. Makes pennies shine; soaking old pennies in Coke will remove the tarnish.

11. Cleans tile grout; pour onto kitchen floor, leave for a few minutes, wipe up.

12. Dissolves a tooth; Use a sealed container…takes a while but it does work.

13. Removes gum from hair; dip into a small bowl of Coke, leave a few minutes. Gum will wipe off.

14. Removes stains from vitreous china.

15. Got a dirty pool? Adding two 2-liter bottles of Coke clears up rust.

16. You can remove (or fade) dye from hair by pouring diet Coke over it.

17. Remove marker stains from carpet. Applying Coke, scrubbing and then clean with soapy water will remove marker stains.

18. Cleans a toilet; pour around bowl, leave for a while, flush clean.

19. Coke and aluminum foil will bring Chrome to a high shine.

20. Strips paint off metal furniture. Soak a towel in Coke and lay it on the paint surface.

Now can you imagine what is does to your stomach lining?

Furthermore, have you ever wondered what exactly Coca Cola is?

After 10 minutes: The sugar contained in a glass of Cola can cause a devastating “strike” on the body. The cause being the phosphoric acid which inhibits the action of sugar.

After 20 minutes: A leap in insulin levels in bloodstream occurs.

After 40 minutes: Ingestion of caffeine is finally completed. The eye’s pupils are expanding. Blood pressure rises because the liver disposes more sugar into the bloodstream. The adenosine receptors become blocked thereby preventing drowsiness.

After 45 minutes: The body raises production of the dopamine hormone, which stimulates the brain pleasure center. Similar to the reaction Heroin creates.

After 1 hour: Phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in the gastrointestinal tract, which supercharges metabolism. The release of calcium through urine takes place.

After more than 1 hour: Diuretic effects of the drink enters in “the game”. The calcium, magnesium, and zinc are removed out of the body, which are a part of our bones, as well as sodium. At this time, we can become irritable or subdued. The whole quantity of water, contained in a coca cola, is removed through urination.

When having a cold bottle of Coke and enjoying its undeniable freshness are we aware of what chemical “cocktail” we are putting into our bodies? The active ingredient in Coca-Cola is orthophosphoric acid. Due to its high acidity, cisterns used for transporting the chemical have to be equipped with special reservoirs designed for highly corrosive materials.

Let’s have a look at “the anatomy” of one of the most advertised products of “Coca-Cola Co.” – Coca-Cola Light without caffeine. This drink contains Aqua Carbonated, E150D, E952, E951, E338, E330, Aromas, E211.

Aqua Carbonated – this is sparkling water. It stirs gastric secretion, increases the acidity of the gastric juice and provokes flatulency. Filtered tap water is what is primarily used.

E150D – this is food coloring obtained through the processing of sugar at specified temperatures, with or without addition of chemical reagents. In the case of coca-cola, ammonium sulfate is added.

E952 – Sodium Cyclamate is a sugar substitute. Cyclamate is a synthetic chemical, has a sweet taste, which is 200 times sweeter than sugar, and is used as an artificial sweetener. In 1969 it was banned by FDA, since it, as well as saccharin and aspartame, caused cancer in rats.

E950 – Acesulfame Potassium. 200 times sweeter than sugar, containing methyl-ether. It aggravates the operation of the cardiovascular system. Likewise, it contains asparaginic acid which can also cause an excitant effect on our nervous system and in time it can lead to addiction. Acesulfame is badly dissolved and is not recommended for use by children and pregnant women.

E951 – Aspartame. A sugar substitute for diabetics and is chemically unstable at elevated temperatures it breaks down into methanol and phenylalanine. Methanol is very dangerous as only 5-10ml can cause destruction of the optic nerve and irreversible blindness. In warm soft drinks, aspartame transforms into formaldehyde which is a very strong carcinogen. Symptoms of aspartame poisoning include: unconsciousness, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, palpitation, weight gain, irritability, anxiety, memory loss, blurry vision, fainting, joint pains, depression, infertility, hearing loss and more. Aspartame can also provoke the following diseases: brain tumors, MS (Multiple Sclerosis), epilepsy, Graves’ disease, chronic fatigue, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, mental deficiency and tuberculosis. Later, this substance was initially illegal due to its dangers but was again made legal in a suspicious manner.

E338 – Orthophosphoric Acid. This can cause irritation of the skin and eyes. It is used for production of phosphoric acid salts of ammonia, sodium, calcium, aluminum and also in organic synthesis for the production of charcoal and film tapes. It is also used in the production of refractory materials, ceramics, glass, fertilizers, synthetic detergents, medicine, metalworking, as well as in the textile and oil industries. It is known that orthophosphoric acid interferes with the absorption of calcium and iron into the body which can cause weakening of bones and osteoporosis. Other side effects are thirst and skin rashes.

E330 – Citric Acid. It is widely used in pharmaceutical and food industries. Salts of citric acid (citrates) are used in the food industry as acids, preservatives, stabilizers, and in the medical fields – for preserving blood.

Aromas – unknown aromatic additives

E211 – Sodium Benzoate. It is used in production of some food products for anti-bacterial and anti-fungal purposes. It is often found in jams, fruit juices and fruit yogurts. It’s not recommended for use by asthmatics and people who are sensitive to aspirin. A study conducted by Peter Piper at the Sheffield University in Britain, found that this compound causes significant damage to DNA. According to Peter, sodium benzoate which is an active component in preservatives, doesn’t destroy DNA, but deactivates it. This can lead to cirrhosis and degenerative diseases like Parkinson’s disease.

Coca-Cola is undeniably a very useful product. The key is to use it for purposes that do not include drinking! Here is a video about Coca-Cola!

Scary Food: Xylitol Sweetener Shown To Kill If Consumed By Dogs

Xylitol Sweetener - Bad For DogsXylitol sweetener shown to kill if consumed by dogs

Xylitol

by: Isabelle Z.

(NaturalNews) You might share a lot with your dog, from walks in the park to leftovers from dinner. However, there is something you should never share with Fido: food that contains the sweetener xylitol.

The FDA has issued a consumer warningentitled “Xylitol and Your Dog: Danger, Paws Off,” which warns that xylitol can be fatal to dogs. The substance is quickly absorbed into their bloodstreams, triggering a sudden and fast release of insulin from their pancreases which causes their blood sugar levels to drop to dangerously low levels.

This effect can occur within as few as 10 to 60 minutes after consumption, and can quickly become fatal if it is not treated right away. Even a few pieces of gum are enough to poison a large dog.

Warning signs of xylitol poisoning in dogs

How can you tell if your dog might have consumed xylitol? The symptoms include vomiting which is followed by signs of a sudden blood sugar drop, such as weakness, collapse, lack of coordination and even seizures. If you suspect your dog might have xylitol poisoning, it is important to bring him to a vet right away for treatment and observation.

Even people who actively avoid sweeteners in foods like candy might be surprised to find that they have xylitol lurking somewhere in their home. It is commonly used in sugar-free gum and household products such as mouthwash, toothpaste, vitamins, mints and cough syrups. All foods and other products that contain xylitol should be kept out of reach, and people should never use human toothpaste to brush their dogs’ teeth.

It is also important to check the list of ingredients on your peanut butter if you are one of the many dog owners who uses peanut butter as a trick to help get your dog to take his medicine. Xylitol is commonly used to sweeten nut butters.

Rise in cases of canine xylitol poisoning

CBS News reports that the ASPCA’s Animal Poison Control Center has seen a dramatic jump in xylitol-related calls over the past decade, with the number rising from just 82 in 2004 to 3,700 in 2014. In fact, the Pet Poison Helpline has noted a 15 percent rise in these calls so far this year.

The problem appears to stem from the fact that dogs process the chemical, which is a sugar alcohol, in different ways than humans do. The FDA statement says, “In people, xylitol does not stimulate the release of insulin from the pancreas. However, it’s different in canines: When dogs eat something containing xylitol, the xylitol is more quickly absorbed into the bloodstream, and may result in a potent release of insulin from the pancreas.”

Yet another strike against alternative sweeteners

Xylitol has also been known to cause intestinal discomfort in humans. People who consume a lot of it at once often report diarrhea or cramping. Although it can be beneficial for dental health and even ear infections, the fact that it is so deadly to dogs will certainly give many people pause before consuming it.

The truth is that many artificial sweeteners are a lot worse for the body than sugar itself. Saccharin, aspartame and sucralose have been linked with metabolic issues, weight gain and even cancer. While xylitol is generally considered one of the safer sugar substitutes, keep in mind that this is all relative, and certainly doesn’t apply to dogs! In addition, it is sometimes made from GMO corn, so it’s important to look out for organic varieties and check sources carefully if you choose to consume it. The best course of action is to avoid sweeteners altogether, and instead opt for food that is naturally sweet, such as organic fruit.

Scary Food: This Popular Starbucks Frappuccino’s Color Is Made From Ground-Up Bugs

In an unexpected and disheartening surprise, it turns out that the Strawberries & Creme Frappuccino at Starbucks got its pink-red color from cochineal extract, which is a fancy way of saying ground-up bugs.

The exact ingredients for the chain’s drinks were either not well-known or not understood, because it took one concerned, vegan barista to notice the ingredient for the red sauce that goes into the frap and take a picture for proof.

The barista then uploaded the photo to a vegetarian website called This Dish Is Vegetarian to reveal that, in fact, the Strawberries & Creme Frappuccino was notvegetarian.

Cochineal insects are native to Mexico and South America, living their tiny lives on prickly pear cactus plants. The female insects eat the red berries on the cactus and turn red from the juice, making their bodies one big concentration of red dye.

These females are harvested for about three months and are then collected to extract the dye.

For several minutes, the farmers shake the insects until they are all dead while still maintaining their dark color. Other methods of extraction include using a vat of hot water or an oven. Either way, it’s a pretty cruel way to die.

The dead bugs are then left out to dry and shaken once more to remove excess residue.

All in all, it takes about 70,000 bugs to produce just one pound of cochineal dye.

Starbucks is certainly not the only one to use these bugs as “natural” dyes for their products. It’s used to color a variety of red items, such as gelatin and makeup. Companies like Tropicana and Dole list the dye on the list of ingredients for their fruit juices.

spokesperson for The Center for Science in the Public Interest addressed the use of the dye in the frappuccinos and said,

“All food companies would be well advised to color their foods with real food and not either artificial dyes or an ostensibly natural dye like carmine. I bet real strawberries could be used. Why simulate the color of strawberries when you could probably get a pretty good result with strawberries or beet juice or something that won’t concern your customers?”

Apparently Starbucks got the message because it announced shortly after this ingredient was revealed that it would be transitioning away from cochineal extract and would instead use lycopene, a tomato-based extract.

Thankfully the barista from Starbucks made the nation aware of the bug extract, or U.S. customers would likely still be inadvertently drinking dead bugs for years to come.

What are your thoughts on the use of cochineal extract? Please comment on, like, and share this article!

Scary Food: Processed Meat May Increase Pancreatic Cancer Risk By Up To 67% Says Study

ProcessedMeatRisk

Study: Processed meats increase pancreatic cancer risk by up to 67 percent

(NaturalNews) The latest research on health problems caused by processed meats indicates that they are responsible for dramatic increases in cancer rates among men and women who consume larger quantities.

Last year, the World Health Organization issued new guidelines that warned about the dangers of processed meats such as hotdogs, bacon and sausages, in that they dramatically increase your risk of cancer – on a scale similar to smoking cigarettes or breathing in asbestos.

As reported by The Guardian, the WHO, citing research, highlighted the dangers of eating processed meats by placing bacon, ham, sausages and burgers on its list of cancer-causing substances. In addition, even fresh red meat made the list as being unhealthy.

The WHO warning about the “carcinogenicity of red and processed meats,” came in a WHO and International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) analysis, published in the UK-based Lancet medical journal.

The guidelines brought the UN’s position into line with the World Cancer Research Fund, which also noted that there is enough evidence to suggest that red and processed meats can lead to colorectal cancer (which is also increasing, by the way).

A Group 1 carcinogen

“The Continuous Update Project Panel judged that there was convincing evidence that consuming red meat, processed meat and alcoholic drinks (men); body fatness, abdominal fatness and adult attained height increase the risk of colorectal cancer,” the WCRF noted.

Indeed, notes Cancer Research UK, the evidence that processed meats increase the risk of cancer has been building for decades. What’s more, the organization says that this claim is well-supported by “careful” research.

With years of evidence, and numerous studies that have previously linked processed meats to colorectal (bowel) cancer, the WHO reviewed more than 800 epidemiological studies to make its determination.

“WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies processed meat — meat altered through salting, curing, fermenting or smoking — as a Group 1 carcinogen,” reports Science News. “This group of cancer-causing agents also includes smoking and asbestos. The ranking means there’s convincing evidence linking the modified meats to colorectal cancer, evidence as strong as that linking smoking to cancer.”

The website Healthy Food Advice reported further that hotdogs were among the worst of processed meats, when it comes to an increased cancer link.

And that’s in large part due to how hot dogs are manufactured, the site noted:

“Hot dogs are usually made from chicken, beef and pork meat, but the production process involves adding animal remains such as legs, claws, skin and fat. … Additives such as corn syrup, monosodium glutamate, salt and many others are added to improve the flavor, which differs from country to country. The worst part about the flavors is that monosodium glutamate and carmine flavors are derived from the shells of tiny bugs that are boiled in sodium carbonate and ammonia!”

Still want that hot dog this summer?

Why didn’t we know all of this already?

What’s more, the site notes, it’s hard to be certain of just what is contained in some hot dog brands, because the labeling isn’t clear.

Processed meats do not just affect the bowel. According to research conducted by the University of Hawaii, and cited by Healthy Food Advice, processed meats can increase the risk of pancreatic cancer by as much as 67 percent, which is astounding.

“Processed meat almost always contains additives such as nitrites and nitrates, hazardous substances which have been proven to increase the risk of stomach, pancreatic, bladder and bowel cancer. As the American Institute For Cancer Research claims, only a single hot dog daily can increase the risk of colorectal cancer by 21%,” the site noted.
