A Common Unlisted Food Additive May Induce Food Allergies Tags: health food allergies

By Catherine J. Frompovich

What would you think if I told you that not all additives and preservatives are listed on food labels?  You’d probably say I didn’t know what I was talking about.  Well, many chemicals used in food processing don’t seem to make it into print on package labels!  One is the synthetic preservative and antioxidant tert-butylhydroquionone (tBHQ) added to cooking oils, nuts, crackers, breads, waffles, fast and frozen foods.

TBHQ is a form of butane gas that’s used in welding or portable gas stoves!  According to FDA regulations, 0.02 percent of the total oils in a food can be tBHQ.  It’s used in unsaturated vegetable oils and some edible animal fats too.  It also is used to ‘protect’ food with iron from discoloration.  Frozen fish products have some of the highest concentrations of tBHQ.

There are known adverse health effects from long term, high doses of tBHQ, one being cancer of the stomach.  However, a Michigan State University researcher has devoted her work to finding out how tBHQ affects the immune system and causes T cells to release certain proteins which can trigger allergies to common foods like eggs, nuts, shell fish and wheat.

 

What Cheryl Rockwell, the assistant professor of toxicology and pharmacology at Michigan State University College of Human Medicine, wants to understand is why tBHQ causes T cells to release a different set of cytokines (proteins) that trigger allergies rather than triggering normal cytokines.

According to the professor’s research, when tBHQ was present, T cells acted differently.

Rockwell claims there’s a signaling pathway in cells that seems to play a role in causing allergies when tBHQ is present in food.  My question for the professor to research further would be, “How does tBHQ interact with other food processing, agricultural and potable water chemicals we also consume that must be processed by the body, especially the liver?”  That would be called “synergistic effects” [5], which no aspect of science seems readily interested in pursuing, especially the U.S. FDA, who should be demanding such tests as part of the approval process.  I wonder why!

 
 

Another issue tBHQ may contribute to is behavioral problems.  Those who struggle with attention deficit and hyperactivity (ADHD) are cautioned to avoid it.  But how can they, when it’s not listed on product ingredient labels?  That’s where safer and more comprehensive labels and labeling regulations/laws should be required at the FDA.  Personally, I’d add that children on the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) also stay away from as many additives, preservatives and sugars, especially low calorie synthetics, as possible.

People eating a high fat diet, which includes chips made with oils, obviously get more tBHQ.  Here’s a listing of foods/products, which apparently contain tBHQ or other petroleum byproducts:

  • Mcdonalds chicken nuggets and french fries have TBHQ.
  • Red Robin fast food chain also uses tert-Butylhydroquinone in cooking oil.
  • CHEEZ-IT Crackers made by Kelloggs have petroleum products.
  • Butterfinger chocolate and Resee’s Peanut butter cups have tert-Butylhydroquinone.
  • Nestle Crunch has tert-Butylhydroquinone.
  • Wheat Thins contain petroleum.
  • Many brands of Microwave popcorn have Tert-Butylhydroquinone.
  • Pam cooking spray has petroleum by products.
  • Aldi products have Tert-Butylhydroquinone.
  • Keebler Club crackers contain petroleum by products.
  • Kellogs eggo frozen waffles and many other Kellogg products.
  • Taco bell beans and some taco shells have Tert-Butylhydroquinone.
  • Teddy Grahams uses petroleum in products.
  • Red Barron frozen pizza has Tert-Butylhydroquinone.
  • Keebler Cookies has petroleum by products.
  • TastyKake has Tert-Butylhydroquinone.
  • Little Debbie uses petroleum products.
  • Kellog’s Pop-Tarts – Keebler has Tert-Butylhydroquinone.
  • Girl scout cookies contain petroleum by products? Not all of them so better off checking before buying.
  • Homestyle Peanut butter cookies has Tert-Butylhydroquinone.
  • Some forms of soymilk have petroleum by products.
  • Different breads cereals and crackers could contain Tert-Butylhydroquinone.
  • Crisco oil contains petroleum by products.
  • Also many restaurants use Tert-Butylhydroquinone when they deep fry. Check the oil ingredients before buying it.
  • Some pet foods have petroleum by products in them.
  • Many cosmetic products and baby products have Tert-Butylhydroquinone.
  • Lacquers, resins and varnish contain petroleum by products your baby crib that your baby maybe putting his mouth on could contain Tert-Butylhydroquinone.
  • Some hair dyes lipsticks and eyeshadows contain Tert-Butylhydroquinone.
  • Some peanut butter products contain petroleum by products.
  • Olive Garden croutons have Tert-Butylhydroquinone.
  • Maruchan soup and Ramon noodles have petroleum by products.
  • Wrigley’s gum has Tert-Butylhydroquinone.
  • Little Debbies nutty bars and some M&M products have Tert-Butylhydroquinone.
  • KFC beans and fried chicken contain petroleum by products. [1]

NOTATION SHOULD BE MADE THAT SOME SOFT DRINKS CAN CONTAIN TBHQ, BUTYLATED HYDROXYANISOLE     (BHA) OR BUTYLATED HYDROXYTOLUENE (BHT) [2].  THAT’S SOMETHING NO ONE PROBABLY CONSIDERS WHEN GUZZLING DOWN A COLD ONE—THE UNKNOWN OR UNLISTED ANTIOXIDANTS IN SOFT DRINKS!

ANOTHER QUESTIONABLE INGREDIENT IN SOME SOFT DRINKS IS BROMATED VEGETABLE OIL FOUND IN MOUNTAIN DEW, SQUIRT, FANTA ORANGE, FRESCA ORIGINAL CITRUS, GATORADE THIRST QUENCHER ORANGE, AND OTHER CITRUS-FLAVORED SOFT DRINKS AND SPORTS DRINKS. [3,4]

“The Loopholes of Food Labeling” may help consumers understand more about why some ingredients are not listed on package labels, but that doesn’t make it biochemically right for the body’s overall health and wellbeing.

Furthermore, consumers need to recognize that we are consuming way too many toxic chemicals in air, food, water, cosmetics, vaccines, pharmaceuticals, and booze – all while regulatory agencies aren’t doing very much to protect us.  They seem to be corporate lapdogs only too happy to keep approving more and more toxic chemicals.

Eugenics: Lyme Disease, Morgellons Disease, & GMO Foods, All Connected? Tags: Eugenics Genetic Modification GMO food Social Engineering

– “…According to Mike Stagman, PhD -“Genetic Engineering is a nightmare technology that has already caused MANY disease epidemics — documented but unpublicized”: 

(Lyme Disease, Morgellons Disease, and GMO Foods, All Connected? – By Anne Gordon, RN)

Today, we see horrific manifestations of a sick society with zombie-like heartless acts of violence. We are seeing creepy emerging emerging pathologies, new assaults to immunology, science fiction mad scientists, and technology with disturbing self-serving agendas. There are many people suffering beneath the veneer of shopping malls, latest gadgetry, and the illusion of connection through plastic. You won’t be seeing this on your TV News station any time soon, if ever.

Many have heard of Morgellons disease, Lyme Disease, and GMOs, but, none appear to be ‘main stream news’. Morgellons Disease has been labeled as a ‘delusional’ disease, or as the ‘mystery skin disease’. (Morgellons is the strange manifestation of unusual fibers seen in skin lesions that itch, and appear to ‘move’. People with the affliction describe a crawling stinging sensation, just under the skin. They also suffer from brain fog, and depression and other debilitations). Lyme Diseasemanifests as plethora of symptoms, often misdiagnosed. And GMO (genetically modified) foods are sneaking into our food sources without our knowledge or consent. The studies more often than not question the safety of ingesting the tampered engineered foods.

In 2008, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention paid researchers $300,000 to conduct a 3 year study on Morgellons. Thousands of people suffer from this. Fibers under the microscope (100x) have a unique arrangement of blue, red, white green and fluorescent. What?

The latest research, indicates a surprising link according to the paper published in January 28, 2013 by Peter Mayne of Australia (principal author), found that Borrelia Spirochetes was found in the skin lesions of Morgellons victims. Surprisingly this bacteria, has been also been associated with Lyme disease. In fact, this research paper, suggests changing the name of Morgellons disease, to Borrelial Dermatitis.

 

According to other researchers in New York, (State University of New York) it is suggested that environmental factors might also be involved in this disturbing disease. They suggest that the fibers are biological with floral root-like structures, and could be from cross contamination of DNA from plants and humans through GMO’s.

Some physicians are suggesting that Morgellons is an unusual morphing of Lyme disease. This is a revolutionary connection, presenting a differential diagnosis, and could de-stigmatize the current delusionary assessment of Morgellons, the debilitating disease.

According to the Morgellons Research Foundation, there are well over 15,000 self-identified sufferers from 15 countries including the US (all 50 states), Canada, the UK, Australia, South Africa, and the Netherlands. In the US, most cases are reported from California, followed by Texas and Florida. The numbers are rising, not declining.

There are increasing new resources for ways to recognize these diseases, and for ways of maintaining a stronger immune system.  Strengthening the immune system, by reduction of toxic assault, is an important way to create a barrier from emerging disease regardless of their origin (synthetic or natural). Learn how to avoid the poisons, creating your own barricade, of your mind and body. It is your time to be proactive, not passive…. if you want to thrive in a changing world.

GMO and Morgellons Disease – By Barbara H. Peterson

Since the Clinton administration made biotechnology “a strategic priority for U.S. government backing” (1), giant transnational agri-business concerns have aggressively taken over the global food chain by flooding it with Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) without regard for the consequences to the earth or its inhabitants. This takeover not only has the potential for global economic devastation, but threatens the earth’s population with far-reaching health concerns as well. One health concern that seems to coincide with the GMO revolution is Morgellons disease. What if the advent of Morgellons disease has something to do with the ingestion of GMO foods?

Morgellons Disease – What is it?

Very little can be found regarding this disease. Originally, sufferers were told that their problem was imaginary. This was of little comfort to the people who were suffering.

Morgellons Disease sufferers report strange, fiber-like material sticking out of sores or wounds that erupt on the skin. This is accompanied by painful, intense itching, that has been described as “an ever present sensation as if something is crawling under the skin.” (2)

On May 18, 2006, KGW, a local news channel reporting out of the Oregon area published this story:

Strange sickness: Mystery disease horror story (excerpt)

 [Dr. Drottar] The disabled family practice doctor felt like bugs were crawling under her skin.

“If I fully tell people what has gone on with me medically, they think they’re in the twilight zone,” said Drottar.

She woke up with the feeling that fluid was flowing just below her skin. Often black or blue hair like fibers protruded from her skin, she said.

“I thought I had been exposed to asbestos. I thought I was having asbestos fibers come out of my skin. I was pulling long, thin, small hair-like fibers that were extremely sharp that could literally pierce through my finger nails,” Drottar said.

In addition to the feeling of bugs and the fibers, Drottar also suffered from severe depression, chronic fatigue and a weakened immune system. As a result, she had to give up her family practice, Drottar said. (3)
