Still Drinking Soda? Read This!

A lot of attention had recently been given to the fact that Coke and Pepsi have decreased the amounts of caramel color in their drinks to avoid having to label them with a cancer warning. But reducing the amount of caramel color won’t change the fact that sodas are carcinogenic chemical cocktails. Here is a list of what makes soda so toxic. And by the way, caramel color is found in many foods most people eat every day, such as some breads, so if you are concerned about your caramel color intake, make sure to read the label on anything you buy.

1- Hormone-disrupting BPA in the can lining. This chemical mimics the female hormone estrogen and has been shown to have a number of detrimental effects on your health including raising your risk of breast and prostate cancer. You might also wind up with a bad case of moobs if you’re a guy.

2- Aluminum in soda cans. Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease in many studies.

3-Brominated vegatable oil. This is present in about 10% of fruit-flavored sodas and sports drinks in the USA. Bromine displaces iodine and the resulting deficiency can increase your risk of breast, thyroid gland, ovary and prostate cancer. Bromine toxicity itself can cause symptoms such as skin rashes, severe acne, loss of appetite, abdominal pain, fatigue, metallic taste, and cardiac arrhythmia. It can also impair fertility.

4-Corn syrup sweetener, found in sodas, juices and many other processed foods is directly linked to obesity in a dose-dependant manner. Fructose, which is found in corn syrup, has also shown to induce the creation of new fat cells around internal organs (visceral fat). Obesity is a cause of type-2 diabetes and visceral fat, in particular has been linked to metabolic disturbances, increased risk for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes as well as breast cancer and the need for gallbladder surgery in women. http://www.health.harvard.edu/fhg/updates/Abdominal-fat-and-what-to-do-about-it.shtml

5-Aspartame in diet sodas can cause many health problems, including neurological, psychiatric, gastro-intestinal and other issues and has been shown to cause cancer in lab animals.

6-Soda contains a lot of sodium, which will not slake your thirst, but lead to more dehydration. Too much sodium in your diet is bad for your health and can affect your blood pressure.

7-Soda is highly acidic. When you take in acidic substances, it alters your body ph. To maintain your blood ph in the right range, your body has to leach alkaline minerals from your own bones. This is why acid-causing substances can contribute to demineralization and its associated problems. Your cells also don’t transport oxygen as well when your ph is acidic. What’s more, cancer cells thrive in an acidic, oxygen-depleted environment while an alkaline environment wipes them out. This is why alkalization and oxygenation are the basis of many natural treatments for cancer. In other words, by acidifying your ph, drinking soda turns your body into a friendly place for cancer cells. To read more about Ph and cancer, go here http://www.alkalizeforhealth.net/cancerselftreatment.htm

8- Caramel color. It’s a chemical, not caramel, and it is so carcinogenic that Coke and Pepsi recently opted to reduce the amount of caramel color in some of their sodas rather than have to label these drinks with cancer warnings according to new FDA guidelines.

9- Mountain Dew turns mice to jelly. This was the defense launched by the company when they were assailed with a lawsuit from a man who claimed to have found a dead mouse in his soda. They said that was impossible because the acids in the soda would have disintegrated in the mouse into a jelly-like substance. Yech! If it does that to a mouse, what does it do to your insides? And if it does that to a mouse, who knows how much disintegrated junk you might be ingesting when you have a can?

10- Phosphoric acid, added to sodas to give them a tangy taste, is so corrosive it destroys tooth enamel and is even used industrially as a rust remover. http://www.naturalnews.com/021774.html

Besides being poisonous, soda makes you burp. That’s not ladylike!

Still feel like drinking soda?

Lose Weight and Feel Great in 2012 with Natural Neda

“The concept of bio-individuality is that each person has their own nutritional needs. So, when the experts say, “dairy is good for you” or “fat is unhealthy,” it’s too much of a generalization. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets don’t work in the long run. I look at how you live your life and teach you how to listen to your body’s wisdom. You will never have to go on another diet again.” -Neda Smith

Today on The Truther Girls, I will be talking to Neda Smith, a wholistic nutritionist who specializes in metabolic typing and who is now launching her new web-based program “30 Days to Lose Weight and Feel Great” . The whole program is done via webinar and phone so you do not have to live nearby, or find a babysitter or drive anywhere. If you can not make the sessions Live, they will ALL be recorded so you can listen to them at your convinience. This is for the person who is just sick of trying to lose weight and is ready to commit to making changes in their lives. It is not a FAD diet, it is a whole food diet based on your metabolic type. There will be some restrictions but there will be lots of great foods to eat and enjoy, for which your fad-dieting friends will envy you.

Rawsome Foods: Unhealthy Family Farms?

There is some information circulating that the farmer, Sarah Palmer, who was supplying Rawsome foods with eggs and milk has a criminal history and was running some kind of scam. Her son stated to investigators that she was buying regular eggs and repackaging them as organic in Health Family Farms cartons. And incidentally, it just so happens that he was arrested the next day for burglary.

This site has posted the results of all their investigations, including a PDF with Sarah Palmer’s arrest history. I’m not sure if every Sarah Palmer in each case is the same one who was involved with Rawsome, but apparently she did have prior convictions for fraud.

As far as I am concerned, this is the old ‘liberty vs security’ argument. To me, Sarah Palmer’s criminal history and whether she was scamming the Rawsome customers doesn’t change the fact that the members of this private club should have the right to make their own decisions when it comes to what they eat- and this includes to do so at their own risk, without some nanny looking after them.

The nanny, after all, is an utter hypocrite. Recently, it was found that Similac formula, made by Abbot Laboratories, was contaminated with beetles and beetle larvae, which had been sickening some of the babies who were drinking it. Abbot were subjected to a lawsuit for misleading consumers, which ended up being dismissed the judge, who ruled that although the makers of Similac had claimed their product was ‘wholesome’ and ‘nutritious’, they never actually said it was safe.

Another example is the labeling of eggs as ‘free-range’. By law, this only means the hens must have access to the outside for one hour a day. They don’t actually have to go outside, they just have to have access to it. How is that any better than Sarah Palmer taking eggs from one basket and putting them into another? Do you think that door being open at the back of the barn really makes any difference in the quality of the ‘free range’ eggs you get at the grocery store?

And NaturalNews recently reported that “current USDA regulations allow a meat production facility to pass inspection even if 49.9% of the meat is contaminated with salmonella”!

In the end, when it comes to your food, you either have a nanny or you don’t. If you want food freedom, you make your food your own responsibility and do so at your own risk and leave no room for any corporate Mary Poppins. Rawsome was a private club and should have been left alone and all this talk about Sarah Palmer’s criminal leanings is doing nothing other than serving as a way to manipulate the public back into believing that they do need the state to rule over them and their food with a white-gloved iron fist.

Watermelon Facial

Someone sent me this tip on youtube. Although I haven’t tried this recipe myself yet, I personally don’t use any commercial beauty creams and such. All I use is olive oil to clean my face, and coconut oil and aloe vera as a moisturizer. Not only is it clean, natural, free of chemicals and guaranteed good for your skin, but it’s a lot cheaper, too, than buying creams.

Here is the recipe for a watermelon facial. i hope you enjoy it. As I always say, just because you are a truther doesn’t mean you have to look like one.

“You need to find a watermelon, yeah, a watermellon…non-GMO. After you’ve found a good watermelon proceed to slice it into pieces that will resemble small 3″x5″ cubes. Then juice that watermelon into juice, yeah, juice it. After it’s juiced apply the juice to your skin…no joke. The watermelon juice contains several minerals that will make your skin actually shrink and you will look ten years younger.”

Neotame, a Sweet New Poison


Someone recently tipped me off to the existence of a new sweetener: Neotame.

A simple googling of the name alone immediately brought up several websites warning that this substance is toxic. According to Monsanto spokesperson Nancy Nevi, Neotame compositionally begins with Aspartame, but through a ‘simple enhancement to the dipeptide base’ it becomes 40 times sweeter. It was discovered by accident at a military facility during research on a chemical weapon called Neotox-II. http://www.holisticmed.com/neotame/history.html

Dr. Betty Martini, long-time forerunning anti-Aspartame activist penned an open letter to Dr Jane Henny, FDA commissioner, highlighting the evidence that aspartame is a deadly poison that can has been shown to cause brain tumors, birth defects, blindness (http://www.focusnewsletter.org/aspartame.htm) and other health problems possibly including infertility and miscarriage. In her letter, Dr Martini basically pleads with the FDA to recall Aspartame and not approve Neotame.

She also refers specifically to several studies that showed the toxic effects of Aspartame such as :
“Monsanto funded a study on birth defects which was disastrous, so they withdrew their funding and Dr. Diana Dow-Edwards had to pay it herself. Then neither Monsanto or the FDA would accept it. Quite a message to the world – if a researcher will not say it is safe, the study will not be accepted.”
“A pivotal study (SC18862) submitted was done on 7 infant monkeys: 5 had grand mal seizures and 1 died.”

According to holisticmed.com:
“Even Monsanto’s own pre-approval studies of neotame revealed adverse reactions. Unfortunately, Monsanto only conducted a few one-day studies in humans rather than encouraging independent researchers to obtain NIH funding to conduct long-term human studies on the effects of neotame.”

Despite the fact that nearly 100% of independent studies on Aspartame have found it to be cause adverse effects, and that there have been no long-term studies on Neotame and those that have been conducted showed adverse reactions, Neotame is already used as an additive in 1000 foods.

The Neotame website describes it as an ‘exciting’ new flavor enhancer and sweetener. I’ll bet that much is true: it’s exciting, alright- it’s an excitotoxin! And I guess it’s especially exciting to those who would like to reduce the world’s population and profit off the remainder’s sickness.


The purveyors of this poison declare that Neotame fits into healthful eating;
“A balanced diet including a variety of foods is the foundation of healthful eating. As part of a balanced diet, neotame provides a little sweetness without adding calories.” Since when is a chemical weapon is part of a balanced diet?

The makers of Neotame state that it is suitable for diabetics, even though Aspartame has been shown to cause blindness in diabetics, and even go on to proclaim safe for children and pregnant women!
“People of all ages, including pregnant or breastfeeding women, teens and children, and people with diabetes, can enjoy products sweetened with neotame while maintaining a healthful diet.”
That’s a bit like saying people of all ages can enjoy crystal meth while maintaining a healthful diet. It’s not exactly untrue, but it doesn’t change the fact that crystal meth will kill you.

Because of labeling laws, it is possible for Neotame to be listed as ‘natural flavors’ if it amounts to less that 5% of a product’s ingredients, so beware! The best policy is to avoid pre-made, processed and pre-packaged foods altogether, or you could wind up eating Neotox-II – I mean, Neotame. And I would be willing to wager that Neotame…Will kill you.

There Will Never Be a Cure for Cancer

There will never be a cure for cancer. Not officially, at least. You can bet your diseased butt on that.
Of course, there is actually a cure, and not just one cure but many cures. It’s just that there is no money to be made on cured people. I used to work in the oncology department of a major hospital and like everyone else, I had been programmed to believe that ‘alternative’ treatments, so-called ‘natural cures’ were just something that sad, desperate people resorted to when they just could come to grips with the fact that it was game over for them. A little snake oil was harmless, might give your morale a boost, but it was obviously useless. It had to be. If it worked, it would be front page news. Wouldn’t it?

No, it wouldn’t. It took me a long time to understand the machinations of the Medical Mafia and how they had, over time, subverted the entire medical establishment. As someone who worked in the medical field, this was a hard pill to swallow. Years and years of programmng had taught me that the doctors I was working for were healers, doing their best to restore people to health. How could it be that they were dupes, unwitting minions of a tyrannical pharmaceutical cartel? And I had known, like everyone else who knew anything, that patients who eschewed radiation and chemotherapy in favor of ‘rubbing some herbs on thei ass’ as The Young Turks once put it, were nothing but delusional, if well-meaning. So how could it be that one could find testimonials all over the Internet, on blogs and vlogs and even occasionally mainstream media clips, so many people who had been told they were beyond hope, suddenly making seemingly miraculous recoveries with nothing but food, supplements, and oxygen? Option A was that these were folks who had been misdiagnosed. Option B was that they were lying- maybe they were put up to it by the ones selling the herbs. Option C was that they were just lucky. Some lucky bastard cheats death and he happened to be taking some herbs- but that doesn’t prove anything.
But after seeing and reading of case after case of such recoveries, I started to get the picture. There was a cure- and not just one, but many- but the public was being and would continue to be kept in the dark for the sake of Big Pharma’s fat pockets!

The truth is out there, as they say.

CETA: A New Threat to Canadian Sovereignty

Written by Youtube user daelka

Negotiations are presently taking place between the “EU” and “Canada” for a so-called “Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement” (CETA). Simply put, it is a threat. It threatens everything from food sovereignty to local development through procurement.

The Trade Justice Network has a good website to get an overview of this corporatist attack. http://tradejustice.ca.
A good part of it is also available in French. The leaked text, however, seems only available in English, on the English version of the site. But I think the information available in French on the site can still be spread among French speakers so that all Canadians can take a stand. The Trade Justice Network’s French name is Réseau pour le commerce juste and the URL for the French version of the site is

The Council of Canadians is organizing a protest event in Ottawa this Friday: http://www.canadians.org/media/trade/2010/15-Oct-10-a.html

The Trade Justice Network also has a YouTube channel:

Here are a couple of excerpts from the leaked document (with commentary from Sonia):
Page 20: measures to eliminate export subsidies. Will we become more and more dependant on imports? As if we’re not dependant enough? Is the government intentionally trying to undermine local production, including local food production, for the benefit of multinational corporations?
“The Parties recognize that agricultural export subsidies may also have distorting
effects in third-party markets.
4. Each Party shall eliminate agricultural export subsidies on agricultural goods
originating in or shipped from its territory by December 31, 2013.
5. Pending the elimination of all agricultural export subsidies, if either Party adopts or
maintains an agricultural export subsidy which the other Party considers to be
distortive of its trade with a non-party, the Party providing the agricultural export
subsidy shall, at the request of the other Party, consult with a view to avoiding such
distortionary effects.”

Page 38: Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures. ‘Phyto’ as in ‘plant’. When I see ‘phytosanitary measures’ being addressed, I can’t help but wonder whether this will lead to an increase in irradiated produce. This bill, after all, first seeks to eliminate export subsidies. Irradiation is used to prolong shelf-life of produce, which is a benefit to any corporation seeking to export their product to a distant place. It is not necessary for locally produced food, which has a shorter trajectory from farm to store and is not at risk of being contaminated with foreign pests.
“1. The Parties hereby establish a Committee on Sanitary and Phytosanitary
Measures (SPS Committee), comprising representatives of each Party from the
relevant trade and regulatory agencies, ministries or other institutions who have
responsibility for SPS matters.
2. The SPS Committee shall
(a) provide a regular forum for exchange of information relating to each
Party’s regulatory systems, including the scientific and risk assessment
basis for SPS measures;
(b) provide direction for the identification, management and resolution of
SPS issues; and
(c) improve understanding between the Parties related to specific
implementation issues concerning the WTO SPS Agreement, including
clarification of regulatory frameworks and decision making procedures”

This is a 366-page document! They are seeing to it that they have all the angles covered.

Cancer, Diabetes and Your Food

The following was discussed on The Truther Girls radio show on August 5, 2010:

Cancer cells feed on fructose. Note: ‘fructose’ is listed as a sweetening ingredient in many foods. However, I would not extrapolate to interpret the following findings to mean that fruit itself causes pancreatic cancer or any other kind of cancer. many fruits have been shown to have anti-cancer properties. Once again, this is probably a case of an isolated nutrient being detrimental, whereas it is beneficial when found in whole food, in its natural source.

Junk foods start allergies: western high-fat diet blamed for surge in allergies
The rise of junk food and high-fat diets could be behind the explosion of allergies sweeping Britain, scientists claimed last night.

Note: this article listed several possible causes of allergies, but did not include vaccines although two studies have shown that delaying a baby’s first DPT shot to the age of 4 months reduces asthma risk by 50%, and delaying it to the age of 6 months reduces it by 66%, from a risk of 15% to 7% and 5% respectively.

Lunch meat causes bladder cancer. Note: previous studies have shown that consuming just one hotdog or serving of nitrate-containing lunch meat a week can raise a child’s risk of brain cancer by 10 times.
