It is most definitely worth reading, thank you for posting this. Finally, a detailed, complete report on the dangers of seemingly innocent food. Usually you have to read different articles to get everything he said. He summed it up quite nicely - eat these and die! He's absolutely right but since these poisons don't cause any immediate gastric distress, people dismiss them. And you have to admit, they are quite addicting. You try to tell the cocaine addict that cocaine is bad for him and he doesn't care - in the back of his mind he deems it worth it. Until, of course, TSHTF and the body suffers irreversible damage. Same with these. We grew up with these, for God's sake! Trying to think of them as poison when every restaurant in America (and half the world for that matter) lays out a tray of bread and butter as soon as you sit down . . . And I grew up eating those stupid Pilsbury "wrap me on the counter to open me" rolls! With margarine! And when squeeze Parkay was invented, I thought it was wonderful! Ugh!!! I've certainly paid the price for my ignorance.
Funny, when I first realized that I couldn't heal my CFS because I wasn't digesting these, I always thought of them as a temporary avoidance, that one day I would again be able to eat ice cream and bread and pasta. I used to dream about what I would cook up when my intestines healed. But now I've come to realize that with these poisons, avoidance has to be forever and it is adamant. Eating out is risky because you don't know what you're getting unless it's a grilled item and a steamed veggie side dish. And still . . . I've had them throw butter on the broccoli even after I've asked them not to.
I'm also glad you posted this because . . . I already know to watch for these things in my dog's food. But for some reason I have never made the same effort with my cats! I did for the cat with FLV, but not for the other healthy ones! I guess I'll start having them avoid these poisons now before they get sick. I'm going back to Shirley's wellness cafe to look up home preparation of dog and cat food.
BTW, they are going to have to squash this info in mainstream media. Can you imagine the extent of the class actions lawsuits and such that would result from our main staple foods being declared as poisons? Science is finally catching up with food. Just a little too late for us, though, too bad.
What else is there to eat? - some will ask. Easy, you use sprouted (for maximum health benefit and ease of digestion) nuts and seeds as your staple foods. Check out the yummy stuff at naturalzing and rawguru. Buy a dehydrator and you can make them yourself. You wouldn't believe how great tasting healthy food can be with a little effort.
