Frankencandy and Tainted Candy for Halloween?

OCA Alert: OCA Launches Kellogg’s Boycott
Genetically Engineered Sugar to Hit Supermarket Shelves this YearThe Organic Consumers Association's (OCA) and allies are calling for a boycott of all Kellogg's products after Kellogg's refuses to source only GE-Free Sugar. Monsanto's RoundUp Ready Genetically Engineered Sugar is due to hit stores this year, exposing millions of consumers to untested and unlabeled "frankenfoods” that threaten human heath, the environment and farmers' rights everywhere.Take Action!

Hershey's TRICK for Your TREAT: Genetically Modified Sugar
Natural Solutions Foundation [mailto:dr.laibow@gmail.com]Tue 10/14/2008 10:09 PM
Candy giant Hershey's Brazilian subsidiary announced that it will not use sugar from Genetically Modified (GM) beets. The US division of Hershey's, however, said on December 4, 2007 that it would use GM sugar from Monsanto's Genetically Modified Roundup Ready sugar beets. According to New West News, Kellogs, Hershey's and Crystal Sugar had all reversed their seven year opposition to GM Sugar because "public resistance to GM foods seems to have faded."
Frankencandy is NOT what you want to pass out on Hallowe'en this year, is it? It certainly is not what I have in mind for the tykes who innocently come to my door asking for a ritual treat. Click here (http://www.newwest.net/topic/article/gm_beet_goes_on/C520/L40/) to read the interesting and ominous article in New West News on the impact of GMOs on the West just one year ago and then click here (http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/568/campaign.jsp?campaign_KEY=26087) to email Hershey's and tell them that until they stop using GMO ingredients, you and everyone you know will not buy their products.New West News: http://www.newwest.net/topic/article/gm_beet_goes_on/C520/L40/

Halloween candy for sale in the U.S. may be tainted with melamine
About a month ago, samples of Cadbury chocolate produced in China were found to contain melamine - an industrial chemical that can be used to mask protein deficiency. Now there is evidence that milk powder, produced in China, may have been used to produce Halloween candy that's currently on store shelves all across the country. Below I've provided some links to YouTube clips with more information. If you've already purchased any candy thought to be tainted, please throw it out immediately. And PLEASE share this urgent message with your family and friends to help ensure a safe Halloween for our children. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3dbBQPIFf0

GE Foods Freak out Rats; GE Sugar Coming To You Soon

School Lab Rats Freak Out On GE Food, or, Are Rats Smarter Than People?

Schools in Wisconsin are showing kids the dangers of genetically engineered (GE) junk food
with some unique science class experiments. Sister Luigi Frigo repeats the experiment every year in her second grade class in Cudahy. Students fed one group of mice unprocessed whole foods. A second group of mice were given the same junk foods served at most schools. Within a couple of days, the second group of mice developed erratic sleeping schedules and became lazy, nervous and even violent. It took the mice about three weeks on unprocessed foods to return to normal. According to Frigo, the second graders tried to do the experiment again a few months later with the same mice, but the animals had already learned their lesson and refused to eat the GE food. Gosh, do rats know something we humans don’t know?

Frequently Asked Questions: What are the Sources of Trans Fats and Acrylamides?

Question: Do you know of any studies on olive oil becoming a trans fat through the frying process?

Answer: Nope! Olive oil is mainly monounsaturated. Trans fats come from the partial hydrogenation of polyunsaturated oils (e.g. margarine and other partially hydrogenated PUFA or polyunsaturated oils which are all oils liquid at room temperature except Olive oil). I recommend coconut oil (either extra virgin or expeller pressed which has no taste) which is the healthiest oil you can eat, very prothyroid, the fat that is in mother's milk.

Most people are not aware that if an oil is 100% hydrogenated instead of partially hydrogenated there will be NO trans fats formed because trans fats are simply isomers of cis fats and the hydrogenation process creates them.

Question: Does acrylamide come from starch such as potatoes when they are fried?

Another myth is that when you fry potatoes acrylamide is formed from the potato but this is untrue. The acrylamides are formed from the PUFA. That's why I use coconut oil exclusively in all of my cooking. Dr. Bruce Fife has written 11 books on coconut products including 6 on coconut oil.

I first read about acrylamides an article in the Register Guard (4/25/02) that talks about the carcinogenicity of carbohydrates such as potato chips and French fries. Never once were the PUFA (polyunsaturated oils) used in frying mentioned! The carb got the blame. Bread was listed as another source - the acrylamide was formed during baking. The substance was identified as acrylamide, which is formed during the frying or baking. The EPA says that acrylamide is used in treating drinking water. Oh My!

“PUFA (omega-3 and -6 oils, also called polyunsaturated fatty acids) break down into several toxic things, including acrolein, which oxidizes to form acrylate, and both of them react with ammonia or amines to form acrylamide. I haven't read the article, but it does seem odd that they would think the starch was the source of the acrylamide.” (Dr. Ray Peat)
