FDA warns over dangerous products from China while ignoring dangerous products from the U.S.

The Food and Drug Administration has been gleefully warning us about the dangers of China-made food and personal care products recently. Why gleefully? Because announcing the discovery of toxic chemicals in products made by other countries (especially a Communist country) allows the FDA to appear as if it's protecting the public without having to tell the truth about the toxic chemicals found in American food and personal care products. Talking about the deadly chemicals and poisons used by American food and personal care product manufacturers is, of course, an activity to be avoided at all costs. It's much easier to point the finger of blame at someone else and imply that U.S. manufacturers of such products would never poison their customers.

It's the ultimate art of creating a diversion to prevent people from paying attention to all the toxic chemicals used right here in the USA by our most cherished corporations. Chemicals like sodium nitrite, for example, lead to the creation of extremely toxic cancer-causing chemicals in the human body, yet if you go to the grocery store and start checking ingredients labels, you'll find that nearly every processed meat package in the store lists sodium nitrite as an ingredient (bacon, sausage, pepperoni, sandwich meat, hot dogs, bologna and even the chunks of ham in "Bean & Ham" soup). So where is the FDA's urgent warning to Americans that they're eating cancer-causing poisons in American food products?

It doesn't exist. Apparently it's perfectly okay to poison the American people as long as you're running an influential American corporation. It's all part of the great double standard followed by the Food and Drug Administration: Protect the public, but only if it doesn't harm the profits of powerful American corporations.

The difference between Chinese and American product manufacturers

I'm not saying that Chinese food and personal care products don't contain toxic chemicals, by the way. A Chinese businessman will cheat you just as quickly as a U.S. businessman, and if there's a dollar to be saved by replacing a real ingredient with some toxic substitute chemical, you can count on receiving the toxic chemical.

The only difference between Chinese products and American products is that the Chinese products will kill you faster. The American products contain poisons that kill you more slowly -- just enough to give you disease symptoms requiring pharmaceutical treatments without actually killing you. These are poisons like hydrogenated oils (heart disease and cancer), high-fructose corn syrup (diabetes and osteoporosis), genetically modified corn (kidney failure), processed sodium (high blood pressure), MSG and yeast extract (obesity, migraines and worse), aspartame (neurological harm), artificial food colors (behavioral disorders), and hundreds of untested chemicals used in cosmetics, body care, laundry and home cleaning products. None of these will kill you outright like a poisoned product from China might, but they'll kill you over time, combining their toxic chemicals in your heart, liver, kidneys and brain, generating mysterious symptoms that your doctor diagnoses as "idiopathic whatever" which means he really has no idea what's going on.

(You can learn more about all the toxic effects of food ingredients, by the way, in my book Grocery Warning: http://www.truthpublishing.com/GroceryWarnin... )

So where is the FDA to warn us about all these cancer-causing chemicals in the products made in the USA? The agency is mysteriously silent. It seems completely unable to speak... unless of course it's to tout the latest "miracle" prescription drug that masks all the symptoms caused by the toxic chemicals put into the food in the first place.

Did you know that guacamole dips often contain no guacamole? They're made with hydrogenated soybean oil, artificial avocado flavoring, monosodium glutamate and green food coloring made from petrochemicals. Yumm! It's the kind of diet that makes a kid lose his mind, pick up an old refurbished AK-47 brought home by a U.S. soldier from Iraq, lock and load a double-pack of 30-round ammo magazines, and go to town unloading bullets on his classmates. This is no exaggeration: Chemicals in food cause violent behavior in young men. And guess what we're feeding the little rascals in our public school lunch programs? You got it: All the toxic chemicals that many countries have outlawed.

U.S. foods banned around the world

You never hear much about the U.S. food products banned by other countries, do you? Did you know that the U.S. is the only country in the world that pumps up its dairy cows full of synthetic hormone chemicals? That's why U.S. milk is banned in most countries. Bovine Growth Hormone-treated cow milk simply isn't tolerated anywhere else. Even crazier, Monsanto, a U.S. corporation, has sued companies for labeling their milk as "hormone-free," claiming that this explanation "confuses consumers" by giving them information. That's how corporations view consumers, by the way: Idiots who should be told what to do and provided the least amount of information possible. (All U.S. food and cosmetic labeling laws are, in fact, designed to mislead consumers and prevent them from learning about what's really in their food and personal care products.)

Lots of countries have also, from time to time, banned the importation of U.S. beef. Ever wonder why? It's because the Bush Administration has made it illegal for beef ranchers to test their own cows for mad cow disease. The USDA actually sued one rancher that tried to conduct safety testing in order to comfort his overseas buyers of U.S. beef. U.S. authorities said, nope, we can't have any more safety testing in this country unless the feds conduct it -- in which case the government can cover up all the positive mad cow detection results and pretend that U.S. beef is perfectly safe for mass consumption.

Countries like Japan have banned U.S. beef imports, citing enormous safety problems and a complete lack of scientific testing for mad cow disease. European countries test ALL their cows for mad cow disease. But USDA officials in this country believe we should only test something like one cow out of a million, and any time that test comes back positive, do you know what they do? They run a second test, then a third test, then a fourth test until they get the result they want: Negative. I'm not making this up. This is the official unwritten USDA policy on mad cow disease. It's call the "close your eyes and pretend it doesn't exist" policy, which is, coincidentally, the exact same policy followed by the Bush Administration global warming team.

So the next time you hear the FDA warning you about how dangerous and deadly all those Chinese products are, remember what they're NOT telling you: the hazards of American-made food and personal care products, almost all of which are intentionally and knowingly laced with cancer-causing chemicals.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
