To eat from this oh natural tree,
Ingesteth cyanide, into thee,
But drink from this perverted tap,
Chlorine and fluoride's in your back.
And if you eat practically any snack,
Carcinogenic aspartame's hard to track,
You'll think, "other sweeteners, they're for me",
But you buy saccharin, and you'll see,
Your bladder pain, the worst for sure,
It causes cancer, more and more.
Sucralose though, that sure is fine?
I hear you sweat, you now have doubt,
But use your brain, you silly trout!
This one's shit too, it swells your kidneys, liver too,
It shrinks your thymus, more and more,
Till pharma pills, your days adorn,
Without all those, we need machines,
But keep desire in those jeans!
You need not eat these silly things.
Okay, Agave, ain't that fine?
It's slightly better, but it's no shine,
Insulin resistance, the game of this slime,
With liver disease and inflammation,
You'll wish you chose cinnamonation.
- Saccharin: Carcinogen found to cause bladder cancer in rats. (Worst Offender)
- Aspartame: An excitotoxin and thought to be a carcinogen. Can cause dizziness, headaches, blurred vision and stomach problems.
- Sucralose: Splenda. Can cause swelling of liver and kidneys and a shrinkage of the thymus gland.
- Agave nectar: Sweetener derived from a cactus. Contains high levels of fructose, which causes insulin resistance, liver disease and inflammation of body tissues.
- Caramel coloring (E150d): In soft drinks, sauces, pastries and breads. When made with ammonia, it can cause cancer in mice. Food companies not required to disclose if this ingredient is made with ammonia.
- Chlorine: Tap water additive, neurotoxin.
- Fluoride: Tap and toothpaste additive, indirectly contributes to pineal gland calcification, severs connection to spirit. A paper.
What do I do?
To rectify the water issue, I use OSMIO. Reverse osmosis water filters remove harmful additives like chlorine and fluoride (no, not fluorine), hormones and pharmaceuticals not adequately filtered by the water companies, human waste and excrement, and various other nasty things present in tap water. Ever feel like some bottled water is better for you? It's likely still bad, but it's slightly better. Microplastics are still present in bottled water contained in plastic bottles. Even the emotions, thoughts and actions of people around the place the water stands will affect the structure of the water, additives or not. No, really, ridiculous as this sounds, we have proof. And more proof.
You can find statistics from the government that show the contamination levels of different harmful chemicals. Their math isn't quite right though.
It costs very little to simply look up the ingredients of something before you buy it. Sure, it will be annoying the first time, but eventually you will acquire a valuable bank of knowledge that will aid you in retaining your natural vitality as long as you breathe.
I have found luck in going directly to the most scientifically detailed website I could find: PubChem.
Let's give an example where we see if aspartame is bad for you.
- Go to the page for it here
- Read sections on "Safety and Hazards" and "Toxicity", which at time of writing are 13 and 14
13.1.2 Hazards Summary
Causes effects on fluid intake, degenerative changes to brain, and effects on phosphatases and true cholinesterase in acute oral studies of rats; [RTECS] An eye and mucous membrane irritant; [IUCLID] Acceptable daily intake (ADI) of 0-40 mg/kg; [JECFA] May cause irritation; [Alfa Aesar MSDS]
- If you're still unsure, expand the source and go to the link
- Confirm the "Comments" field matches what it says on PubChem in this example
Repeating this method for a few chemicals will yield a list of websites you can look up chemicals on directly, like the HazMap example here.
I have observed serious negative effects from certain foods, and before you scream "COGNITIVE BIAS", this was before reading the ingredients. A brief read condemns the snack in question to the trash, the ideal destination for ~85% of processed foods, snacks, shampoos, soaps (Hollyoaks excluded) and toothpaste. You read that right. In my detailed scientific and evidence-based exploration of many consumer product additives and ingredients, I have determined that one or all of the following possibilities are true:
- The companies that make the products we use do not care about our health, or
- The companies that make the products we use purposely poison us, or
- It is pure coincidence that all of the things we use are poisonous, are known to be poisonous, and nobody seems to really care, it's all chance with no blame to be placed on anyone, as it eliminates those among us who do not think for themselves, who assume just because something is offered, it must be safe, those who fell for the obedience-indoctrination of the Prussian education system, with no power to make conscious decisions, damned to sip the highly toxic Coca-Cola I use to clean my toilet. In other words, as long as those who dish it out sample their own products, the problem will take care of itself.
