“All Natural” Foods : The Deceptive Myth Exposed

“All Natural” Foods : The Deceptive Myth Exposed

http://trylivingorganic.com/2012/02/14/natural-foods-deceptive-myth-exposed-gmo/

There is no doubt you have been deceived.

If you have any type of health conscience, you may shop at such stores as Trader Joes, Whole Food’s Market, or some other upscale grocery store.  As you walk up and down the aisles you will see some organic products, but mostly you’ll see hundreds of beautifully marketed non-organic products with labels advertising in huge letters:  ”NATURAL.” Do not be deceived…

Companies selling these products are telling you what you want to hear and its by  no accident. All these “natural” “all-natural” or “sustainable” products are never backed by rules and regulations.  These products are the same conventional foods produced by large corporations, on mega-farms and processsing plants-very polluting, energy-non-friendly, and often laced with unnatural chemicals.

When tested in the lab, these “natural” foods aren’t even close to organic. You will find things like GMO *Genetically Modified organisms, pesticide residues, and all kinds of additives, preservatives, and carcinogens (cancer causers!).

When you go back to the “farm” for these products, you find chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and all kinds of greedy practices like exploited farm workers and unsustainable farming practices.

If you are health-minded, you know how dangerous these types of foods are and how malicious all this deceit really is. While people think they are getting healthier foods, instead they are paying much higher for the same old garbage and worse, their health could be paying the real price.
Here are some real-life examples:

  • MYTH: Wendy’s ”Natural” cut fries with sea salt – TRUTH: fries are sprayed with chemicals, coated with corn-derived dextrose, and fried in a silicone-based chemical additive.
  • MYTH: “natural” agave nectar – TRUTH: is made up of highly-refined sweetener: fructose
  • MYTH:Dean Foods “natural” yogurt – TRUTH: company will not say if products are produced without pesticides, herbicides, or antibiotics or GMO feed crops.
  • MYTH: “natural” peanut butter – TRUTH: often contains processed palm oils or other types of oils.

Stop being fooled! Unless you have no other choice, Do Not Purchase these so-called “natural” products.  Buy trusted, and certified “Organic” products every time you shop.  Know where your food is coming from. Educate your friends and families.  If more people purchase the real stuff, the demand will increase and companies that are offering genuine healthy foods will prosper (and so will your health.)   Demand that all companies label their GMO products as such! Google: “lable gmos” and cooperate with organizations out there trying to protect our health from “green-washing” swindlers. Beware: Monsanto prowls around like a roaring lion.

Thank you to all the bloggers, news outlets, and all the educated people out there that are getting this message out.
