  1. [Warning] These foods can give you the WORST infection of your life

    [Warning] These foods can give you the WORST infection of your life

    If people knew what all the funny words listed on ingredients panels really meant, they’d NEVER touch processed food.

    Polydimethylsiloxane, used in chicken nuggets, is a silicon polymer also used in silly putty and breast implants.

    EWW!

    That’s why I have a simple rule: If I don’t recognize the word immediately, I’m not putting it in my body.

    Today, I’ve got the inside scoop on another ingredient you don’t want anywhere near your body.

    It’s a sweetener and stabilizer that’s quietly been slipped into processed foods, baked goods, and ice cream in recent years.

    And it could slowly… quietly… and secretly be setting you up for a battle with a deadly infection.

    It’s called trehalose, which the FDA listed as “generally recognized as safe” back in 2000.

    Since that very same year, the number of infections with a deadly germ called Clostridium difficile has jumped dramatically. Within a decade, infections more than tripled.

    Normally, you could just chalk that up to a freak coincidence.

    But not in this case.

    A new study in Nature looks at why a common and very dangerous strain called ribotype 027 is so different from all the others… and why it’s been on the rampage, specifically since the year 2000.

    It just LOVES trehalose.

    Like most germs, the ribotype 027 strain of C. diff won’t necessarily make you sick the moment you’re exposed. Your natural defenses can overwhelm it, shut it down, and wipe it out (or at least keep it under control)… and you’ll never even know it’s there.

    You only get sick if your body can’t handle it, like if you’ve got a weaker immune system or have taken an antibiotic that’s wiped out the good bacteria needed to keep C. diff under control.

    Or, as in this case, if the bacteria has found a fuel supply: trehalose.

    The study in Nature finds that this dangerous strain of C. diff can use trehalose to grow, thrive, spread, and overwhelm your immune system.

    That leads to infection — specifically, diarrhea so severe that it can be deadly, especially in older patients who might already have other health problems.

    And you could quietly be building your own colony of this germ — right now! — and unwittingly feeding it just what it needs to slowly take over.

    Call it one more reason to WATCH what you eat and KNOW what you’re eating.

    Stick to foods with simple natural ingredients you know and recognize.

    Better yet, make your food yourself. You’ll not only know exactly what you’re eating, you’ll also enjoy better, healthier, and more delicious meals without silicon, sand, or bug bits.

  2. Plastics free of BPA are more dangerous than claimed

    Your ‘BPA-free’ plastics have hidden toxins

    It was the biggest boom in the plastics industry in ages.

    After a series of reports about the very real hormone-disrupting dangers of bisphenol-A (BPA), everyone dashed out to Target and Walmart to replace their plastic containers, dishes, and bottles with new (and more expensive) BPA-free alternatives.

    Not me.

    I took a different approach.

    Sure, it cost more – just a little more – but as you’ll see in a moment, it was worth every penny.

    Everyone else may have gotten gypped… and that includes you if you bought those BPA-free plastics… as new research exposes the ugly truth about them.

    They might be free of BPA, but they’re NOT free of RISK!

    Many are made with OTHER bisphenols -- and the new studies show that they can be just as bad.

    In one entirely accidental discovery, researchers testing BPA on mice found both groups – the ones given the chemical and the ones that weren’t – suffered from reproductive problems.

    The reason? The “BPA-free” mice were put in a cage that didn’t contain BPA… but had been made with bisphenol-S (a.k.a. BPS).

    That’s the SAME chemical in many BPA-free plastics used by humans. And it was leeching out and having the SAME effects on the mice as the BPA!

    These were rodents -- not humans -- but this isn’t an isolated incident.

    In a study on BPA-free bottles done a few years ago, three-quarters STILL leaked out synthetic estrogens.

    That means that they could have the same effect on your body as BPA, which has been linked to obesity, cancer, reproductive problems, and more.

    Plastic containers and water bottles aren’t the only sources of exposure to BPA and BPA-like chemicals. They can be in many types of processed foods, especially canned and bagged goods.

    You can also pick them up from other sources, such as store receipts, which are coated with a chemical layer that includes BPA.

    In many ways, this stuff is worse than bottles and cans, as it quickly transfers from the paper onto your skin and into your body.

    But there IS a way to cut your risk.

    Instead of switching to those “better” and “safer” plastics that we now know are JUST AS BAD, spend a little more money on your food and drink storage containers.

    Use glass and stainless steel.

    One study a few years back found that switching to glass and stainless steel items cut BPA levels in the body by 60 percent in just three days.

    Levels of DHEP, another dangerous hormone-disrupting chemical, plunged by 50 percent.

    So yes, you’ll pay a little more. But you’ll get a much bigger benefit – and since glass and stainless steel last longer, it’s a much better long-term investment.

    Oh, and when you buy them… you might want to tell the clerk to keep the receipt!
