Sodium Nitrite = BAD END (17)

1 Name: Anonymous Chef : 2006-06-17 17:54 ID:I8fz/vbO

Consumer Health Warning
Do not buy any foods or groceries containing the following ingredients:

* Sodium nitrite (meats)
* Monosodium glutamate (soups)
* Aspartame (diet soda)
* Yeast extract (snacks)
* Hydrogenated oils
* High-fructose corn syrup
>"Sodium nitrite is a dangerous, cancer-causing ingredient that has no place in the human food supply," he explains. The USDA actually tried to ban sodium nitrite in the 1970's, but was preempted by the meat processing industry, which relies on the ingredient as a color fixer to make foods look more visually appealing. "The meat industry uses sodium nitrite to sell more meat products at the expense of public health," says Adams. "And this new research clearly demonstrates the link between the consumption of processed meats and cancer."

I knew hot dogs were bad for you, but... wow.

>"But researchers failed to accurately identify the culprit responsible for this increased risk of pancreatic cancer, says one author. The true cause of the heightened cancer risk is the widespread use of a carcinogenic precursor ingredient known as sodium nitrite by food processing companies, says nutritionist Mike Adams"

Note how there isn't any scientific paper available (or at least not linked from the article) that points out sodium nitrite. The connection is made by this Adams guy, whose website more or less seems to be this:

This appears to not be a scientist, but rather a guy with a webpage full of propaganda who sells books and CDs. I'll worry when I see a paper showing problems.

Sodium nitrite isn't just "to sell more meat," it's part of the "curing" process traditionally used for hundreds of years, maybe thousands of years, to prepare bacon, ham, corned beef, and similar products.

Is it healthy? Probably not. Is it as dangerous as this guy says? I doubt it. And it's probably not as bad for us as the chemical that the meat industry would probably substitute for it, saltpeter.

It's almost impossible to find any foods without those, you know. Besides, life causes cancer. No, really. all the "such-and-such causes cancer" claims all boil down to that. Most of them are also inaccurate studies done by feeding lab animals with bodies ten to thirty times smaller than ours large amounts of the supposed cancer-causing stuff, recording the results while perhaps exaggerating a bit, and then writing them into news articles and displaying them to the public. PETA 'studies' are even less accurate, because they just kill the animals they get instead of testing their messed-up theories on them and toss the dead animals into dumpsters.

America should not be turned into a culture of fear, but it is becoming quite close to one. And, because of this, "the land of the free" is not an entirely accurate name when most of the people fear things like cancer too much.

Life doesn't cause cancer. Carcinogens cause cancer. Hereditary genetics also play a role (eg. if your p52 gene is fsked up, then you're gonna be in for some fun times).

What happens is this: carcinogens over time act to mutate your DNA. Problems occur when a) you can't fix the damage fast enough b) damage fixers are mutated themselves c) the signallers that tell your cells to die if they're fsked up too much are mutated so they don't work anymore. Essentially, there's a lot of mutations (generally to do with the cell cycle) that have to occur in order for a cancer to develop - that's why people generally get cancer when they're older, unless they've inherited some bad genes from their parents.

Carcinogens can be a whole lot of things. Anything from sunlight, to cigarettes. The problem is, there's so many chemical compounds that have never been tested long-term, so we simply don't know whether they're carcinogenic or not. Unfortunately, an enormous variety of these compounds are in daily use in everyday products you use and consume.

As you can see by this list, there's already a lot of carcinogens that we know of:

While I agree that America shouldn't be turned into a culture of fear (unfortunately, thanks to your Bush administration, it's already well on its way, at least socio-politically), turning a blind eye to health, nutrition and the food industry in an economy based on capitalism is simply asking for trouble. You live in a capitalistic democracy. The way to change things is to make your voice heard, and to vote with your wallet. Otherwise, the food industry (much like how the energy industry carries Bush and his Republicans on their backs) will be the ones making their voices heard and voting with their wallets.

I dont trust the FDA for ANYTHING. I hate that organization. They sway too easily to the melody of money and the whims of pharmaceuticals and food business. You'd think that they would let natural foods on the band wagon so that people could be healthier but heck no. They (natural foods and vitamins) are severely hushed and even raided. I cant even watch t.v anymore because of all the drugs being pushed on us and the FDA taking drug companies studies as proof of the drugs being alright when clearly 3-4 yrs down the line people die off because of the damned side effects.

About cancer~ why is it there is no cure? ALL THE MILLIONS no BILLIONS world wide having been funded into this research why the hell have they not found anything? Notice now how cancer is being blamed as viral? Where the heck are the progress reports? Before I funnel another red cent into any research I want an accounting of what they have spent it on and what they have found. I also want to know what happened to the guy who invented the serum that when injected ate out the cancer cells in a tumor in less than 15 minutes. Where is he and who burned his research? Seriously people in higher up positions are not out for your well being. They are out to make a profit and millions of beautiful children and hard working adults are dying and losing love ones just for money.

lol remember Surge? When that drink was around there was a rumor that if you drank it while it was hot, it would kill you because of the aspartame.

I think Surge has been repackaged as "Vault"

>Norway is the only country where you can still buy this soft drink. Surge was widely associated with the extreme sports lifestyle, with television commercials similar to those currently used by Mountain Dew. Expired cans and bottles of Surge now sell on eBay for high dollar amounts, including a reported $160.08 for a 12-pack sold in April 2005.
>Since 2002, a community of Surge lovers have been built around, and have been widely credited for the release of Vault, Coke's new Surge-like soda. While Vault tastes similar to Surge, it is yellow in color rather than light green. The beginning of 2005 saw a campaign to bring Surge back to the shelves of Wal-Mart; according to, this resulted in Wal-Mart executives contacting Coca-Cola about bringing the drink back, but the soft drink company elected not to make a deal.
>While Surge does contain more caffeine than some soft drinks, it contains a little less than its closest analogue, Mountain Dew. According to Coca-Cola's customer service in Norway, Urge contains 45% more caffeine than Coca-Cola. In Norway, a 0.5L bottle of Coca-Cola contains 10mg of caffeine, while a bottle of Urge contains 14.5mg of caffeine.

There is literally nothing dangerous about MSG. Your body synthesizes it in greater quantities than you could consume, and it occurs naturally in tomatoes, mushrooms, and cheese. Yeast extract and HFCS are also safe.
