We're All on Drugs

Amberleigh CarterComment

After recognizing the undeniable evidence supporting the healthy effects of coconut oil, the FDA wants a piece of it. This is only the beginning...

Dr. Bronner's Coconut Oil label: "Clinical research confirms that the saturated medium chain fatty acids (MCT's) in [Virgin Coconut Oil], such as lauric acid, actually improve blood cholesterol by increasing the ratio of HDL to LDL cholesterol."
The FDA's stance: This simple statement suggests that extra-virgin coconut oil is a "drug", as only drugs are capable of affecting human health. Dr. Bronner's is engaging in the sale and distribution of an illegal drug.

Dear, FDA,

This isn't a statement; it's a peer-reviewed, scientific fact. Coconut oil has many amazing benefits on the body, as does organic, real, whole foods. If everything that affects the body/human health is considered to be a drug by the FDA, then I guess we're all on drugs. 

Moral of the story: if it's not FDA-approved, there may be a high possibility that it's good for you.

Fire? Grab a Fanta Extinguisher

Amberleigh CarterComment

Next time you want to put out a fire, grab a Fanta drink, as it contains (among many other harmful ingredients) Brominated Vegetable Oil, aka a flame retardant.

This ingredient is also in Mountain Dew, Gatorade Thirst, and other Coca-Cola and Pepsi products. This flame retardant is so harmful to every tissue in the body, that it is banned in all of Europe and Japan; so why did the FDA approve it?  My guess is that it all boils down to money. 

Let this be an example for understanding that no one cares about your health as much as you do.

Be aware of harmful ingredients you may be unknowingly supporting through your purchases; for example:

  • Modified Food Starch
  • Yellow 6
  • Red 40
  • Sodium Polyphosphates (???)
  • High Fructose Corn Syrup
  • Sodium Benzoate

All of which are in this one Fanta product, alone.  You'd think we could trust what is approved to be put in our products.

Moral of the story, read the ingredients label and make an educated purchase.  If no one buys harmful products, they will finally be forced to listen to us.
