A hamburger made from test tube-grown “beef” is on someone’s menu for this week.
The so-called beef for the burger is the product of a Dutch professor whose work was financed by an anonymous businessman and the Dutch government. It was created from stem cells stripped from a cow’s muscle that were incubated in a nutrient broth, stretched on a machine to simulate exercise and stimulate growth, then minced with lab-grown animal fat. The final, uncooked product is said to be gray with a slippery texture similar to squid or scallop. The financier may be the first to eat the lab-created slime.
PepsiCo Inc. promised to remove a known carcinogen from its ingredients in order to comply with a California law that would require it to come with a cancer warning label. Yet the soft drink still contains the cancer-causing chemical 4-methylimidazole.
Known as 4-Mel, 4-methylimidazole is a component of the caramel coloring used to give Pepsi its color. The chemical was also found in Coca-Cola. A two-year study by the National Toxicology Program of the Department of Human Services showed 4-Mel caused cancer in rats. Following the 2007 study, both soft drink manufacturers promised to modify their manufacturing processes to remove 4-Mel. In March 2012, both said this had been accomplished.
Beer is good for you. Researchers at Harokopio University in Athens, Greece, found blood flow to the heart improved within a couple of hours of drinking two-thirds of a pint of beer.
Last year, if you’re like the average American, you ate more than your body weight of a group of foods you didn’t even know you were consuming. Foods that have never been proven safe to eat. Foods that are becoming more and more widespread in our food supply.
Corporate and government elite dine on safe organic food while the masses are secretly poisoned by hidden genetically modified (GMO) food. President Barack Obama demands organic food. Even Monsanto’s own employees get organic food at the company canteen.
GMO foods are poisoned by hidden genetically modified organisms, pesticides and dangerous contaminants. The big corporation creating and polluting the Earth and the population with GMO foods is Monsanto. Bill Gates is a big Monsanto stockholder.
New research on obesity will likely be music to the ears of progressive bureaucratic busybodies who favor high taxes and controlling every aspect of citizens’ lives: Scientists at the National Bureau of Economic Research say the answer to America’s growing obesity problem is a policy of jacking up food prices with higher taxes.
How we live plays a big role in how well our memories function, especially as we begin to age. Thankfully, in many cases, it’s relatively easy to prevent or avoid many of the behaviors and choices that chip away at our cognition and ability to recall information, both recent and from the distant past.
There was a time when America was the world’s breadbasket. As the global agricultural power, American crops like corn, wheat and soy fed the world. No more.
American and British scientists, with the help of funding through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, have developed an Internet-based global monitoring system that’s capable of mining social media sites for opinions that diverge from mainstream medical advice on the safety and urgency of getting vaccinated.
I have recently decided to start taking Vitamin D3 in the hopes of strengthening my immune system. I seem to get sick at least twice per year(I am right now), and I’m tired of relying on antibiotics to cure me. I was wondering how much D3 you would recommend I take per day (I bought 5000 UI capsules). I am 16 years old. I’m about 5 feet 11 inches tall, and I weigh roughly 145 pounds. Also, I was wondering if there is anything else you would recommend I take in order to improve my immune system and overall health.
