ingredients in animal and human food in general
- Yes, there are thousands of ingredients that have the blessing of
the food industry which are known carcinogens, endocrine disruptors or
have some other well researched effects and yet they are still
perfectly legal. I got my degree in wellness because I questioned
these things even back into the seventies. Things have not changed all
If an ingredient helps the product have a lower cost to produce
or helps it to last longer, that is what mega food companies use.
Please stop believing what commercials on tv tell you about Bacon
flavored chemical goop that is actually very carcinogenic to your dog
or the meow meow meow meow song that cats supposedly really sing in
praise of artificially flavored, artificially colored, artifically
preserved and mostly corn, which by the way cats cannot even digest!
I have spent almost forty years of my life studying the truth
about ingredients and that simple statement "You are what you eat".
Not much has changed, except for the worse. Please start reading
alternative sources of information about animal food and more
importantly, human food. 95% of all processed food has high fructose
corn syrup in it. This was put in before it was researched. Now they
are finding that it is causing the incredible obesity rates in this
country. Now one in three adults is obese, not just fat. Now one in
four teens are. Now one in four teens is diabetic or pre-diabetic.
Google any of this. Please tell me that what I have been studying is
wrong. I would love to know that I just woke up from a nightmare and
we should all just sit back and eat our hot dogs and potato chips and
sodas and never question anything!
If you are interested in where I get my info, add me on FB and
follow along but please be ready to also see lots of posts on animal
rescue too, k? My name on there is Beej Matson from North Liberty,
I almost wish I had never opened this Pandora's Box! Thanks, Beej

"Be the change you want to see in the world"
- Beej....I enjoyed reading your post. In January I changed my eating
habits drastically. I have been following Dr. Joel Fuhrman's Eat to Live
nutritarian eating style and will continue this for the rest of my life.
He gives the science behind his nutrient dense diet and says much the
same thing as you did about the SAD (standard american diet) and
obesity, cancer, etc, etc. I have lost 27 lbs and cut my cholesterol
meds in half plus bp has dropped to a normal level without meds. I keep
thinking that I so wish he would write a book on animal nutrition but of
course I am sure that isn't in the works! lol I have two overweight
cats that the vet prescribed RC CC high protein kibble. That has not
worked and they are very addicted to it. I have started buying grain
free kibble and mixing in and would like to get them off of dry food
completely if I can. They also get canned food everyday but I cannot get
them to eat any of the grain free canned foods. I have made raw food for
them and two of my 3 cats will eat a little of it. I just want to make
their food myself so I know what they are getting and not getting. I am
looking for your FB page and see Beej Matson, University of Iowa so am
assuming that is you. I will send a friend request.
