Surprises

If you think junk food is only about corn chips and cheeseburgers…

How about milk…

Milk Tests Reveal Widespread Contamination

“Recent tests reveal a significant portion of conventional nonorganic cow’s milk sold in the U.S. contain pesticides, growth hormones and antibiotics, including some that are not legally permitted in dairy production. Organic milk, on the other hand, was not found to contain these contaminants. Of the 35 conventional milk samples tested, 60% contained antibiotics, including amoxicillin, oxytetracycline, sulfamethazine, sulfadimethoxine and sulfathiazole.

“Between 26% and 60% of the conventional milk samples contained pesticides, including chlorpyrifos (59%), atrazine (26%), diazinon (60%), cypermethrin (49%) and permethrin (46%), which may pose health risks to children. Organic milk has a healthier ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 than conventional. According to previous research, organic milk contains 25% less omega-6 fats and 62% more omega-3 fats than conventional milk.

“While the U.S. FDA and the USDA insist raw milk will increase your risk of death and disease, foodborne illness statistics offer no support for such claims. In fact, data analysis reveals you’re 35,000 times more likely to get sick from any other food than raw milk.”

Some Baby Foods Are Worse Than Junk Foods

“Some baby foods contain as much sugar and saturated fats as chocolate cookies or cheeseburgers. A survey of more than 100 foods for babies and toddlers found examples that were 29 percent sugar, and others that contained trans fats, which have been linked to heart disease.”

Surely, fruit juice is okay?!

“The Environmental Working Group conducted [a study] which focused on the industrial poisons found in the umbilical cord blood of American infants… [It] found 287 known poisons in their blood, and due to the expense of the testing, only 400 chemicals were tested for. There are over 80,000 industrial chemicals currently in use, and the vast majority have never had any safety testing.”
