Food industry corruption: Almost everything we eat is fake


Fraudulence spans from haute cuisine to fast food
Among the many things New Yorkers pride ourselves on is food: making it, selling it and consuming only the best, from single-slice pizza to four-star sushi. We have fish markets, Shake Shacks and, as of this year, 74 Michelin-starred restaurants.

Yet most everything we eat is fraudulent.

In his new book, "Real Food Fake Food," author Larry Olmsted exposes the breadth of counterfeit foods we're unknowingly eating. After reading it, you'll want to be fed intravenously for the rest of your life.

Think you're getting Kobe steak when you order the $350 "Kobe steak" off the menu at Old Homestead? Nope — Japan sells its rare Kobe beef to just three restaurants in the United States, and 212 Steakhouse is the only one in New York. That Kobe is probably Wagyu, a cheaper, passable cut, Olmsted says. (Old Homestead declined The Post's request for comment.)

Fraudulence spans from haute cuisine to fast food: A February 2016 report by Inside Edition found that Red Lobster's lobster bisque contained a non-lobster meat called langostino. In a statement to The Post, Red Lobster maintains that langostino is lobster meat and said that in the wake of the IE report, "We amended the menu description of the lobster bisque to note the multiple kinds of lobster that are contained within."

Moving on: That extra-virgin olive oil you use on salads has probably been cut with soybean or sunflower oil, plus a bunch of chemicals. The 100 percent grass-fed beef you just bought is no such thing — it's very possible that cow was still pumped full of drugs and raised in a cramped feedlot.

Cinnamon: Could this popular spice make us better learners?

Cinnamon improved learning and memory in mice defined as poor learners.
Cinnamon is a warm, sweet spice that you can sprinkle on top of your latte while consuming a sticky cinnamon roll. In addition to tantalizing your taste buds, cinnamon may improve your ability to learn, new research has found.

The study, published in the journal Neuroimmune Pharmacology, finds that mice that are considered poor learners improve in learning ability after consuming cinnamon.

"This would be one of the safest and the easiest approaches to convert poor learners to good learners," says Kalipada Pahan, Ph.D., lead researcher of the study and the Floyd A. Davis Prof. of Neurology at Rush.

How the dairy industry tricked humans into believing they need milk [VIDEO]

Despite the fact that one can get their daily recommendation of calcium, potassium, and protein from fruits and vegetables, the dairy industry has spent billions of dollars to convince consumers otherwise.

Got Milk?
We sure hope not. Despite being a somewhat tasty addition to coffee, tea, and delectable treats, the ingredient - when pasteurized - is highly toxic to the human body. In fact, physicians such as Dr. Willet, who has conducted many studies and reviewed the research on the topic, believe milk to be more of a detriment to the human body than an aid.

This is because despite popular belief, the food has never been shown to reduce fracture risk. In fact, according to the Nurses' Health Study, dairy may increase risk of fractures by 50%! This concerning finding is supported by the fact that countries with lowest rates of dairy and calcium consumption (like those in Africa and Asia) have the lowest rates of osteoporosis.

Considering that approximately 3/4 of the world's population is unable to digest milk and other dairy products, it seems clear the food is not an ideal substance for consumption. However, the average consumer doesn't know this. From celebrity endorsements to advertisements by the dairy industry, most have been taught to believe that dairy is an ideal food for optimum health.

CDC alert: Candida Auris - The latest superbug creation

© dailymail
Candida albicans, illustrated, is a yeast-like fungus naturally found in small amounts
Fungal infections caused by Candida are the most common type of fungal infections in the world. Fiercely opportunistic, Candida is a part of everyone's intestinal flora. It doesn't actually cause problems unless it takes over and crowds out the good bacteria. Then it causes numerous health issues. Four different species of Candida make up the majority of fungal infections in the United States: Candida albicans, Candida tropicalis, Candida glabrata, and Candida parapsilosis. If you catch them early, most of these Candida infections can be taken care of with an adjustment in diet.

A Possible Scenario

The conventional medical treatment for Candida involves pharmaceuticals. Somewhat effective in killing Candida, these drugs also kill other microbes in the intestinal tract and leave you without enough beneficial bacteria to fight off other new infections.

The Center for Disease Control has issued a clinical alert to U.S. healthcare facilities asking them to be on the lookout for one such infection associated with high mortality, a resilient species of yeast called Candida auris that has shown resistance to three major classes of antifungals.

Disgusting ingredients used to make vaccines

Every time we have posted this particular article on Facebook, we have received comments such as, "I can't believe this really true."

Unfortunately, people who are so seemingly trusting in the safety of vaccines seldom take any time to read a package insert or do research as to what is actually in the needle that is injected directly into their blood, or directly into the blood veins of small children and babies. All of the information below is freely available on government websites or on the websites of the vaccine manufacturers themselves.

Comment: More disturbing details about vaccine ingredients:
Vaccines' dark inferno: What's not on the insert labels?

Our investigation shows that most people do not know what is actually in a vaccine: the active ingredients listed on product labels, the inert ingredients, and, most important, the hidden ingredients. Even more remote is taking the time to actually study the subject matter, review the scientific literature, and discover the truth for oneself. To our amazement, that truth was easy to find. But it is a truth that will scare the hell out of you...

The story begins with the vaccine industrial complex's attempt to reduce manufacturing costs by seeking government approval to use cancerous cell lines in the development of vaccines. The industry's rationale is that cancerous cells are "immortal." Current vaccine methodology relies on animal cells, such as fertilized hen embryos and monkey kidneys, that die quickly in culture. Using cancerous cell lines is also much cheaper than relying on the purchase of animals, especially monkeys, that need to be sacrificed for vaccine substrates.

Researchers aim to use sound waves to treat Alzheimer's Disease

© Unknown
The most effective treatment for Alzheimer's Disease is gaining more notoriety and it's drug-free. University of Queensland researchers have confirmed that non-invasive ultrasound technology breaks apart the neurotoxic amyloid plaques that result in memory loss and cognitive decline. The treatment is now being touted as the cure for the debilitating condition that accounts for 70 percent of all cases of dementia.

Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is not genetic. Research is showing the incidence is more correlated to excitotoxins and heavy metals which play a critical role in the development of several neurological disorders, especially in North America.

In the last few decades, almost $40 billion has been spent worldwide on trying to develop a breakthrough drug treatment for Alzheimer's, yet no pharmaceutical approach has worked. We could not produce anything that could slow it down, let alone stop the disease, until now where new research into sound waves is being praised as a possible cure.

Sick? It may be your lighting

Humans have long created artificial lights by burning or heating materials, however lighting systems today are far more invasive to the human body than those of the past. According to a new study reported in the Cell Press journal, many negative health consequences result from constant exposure to artificial light.

All life evolved with the electromagnetic frequencies from the sun and the earth, and these frequencies are considered essential to all life. Life itself synchronizes and harmonizes with these frequencies. But what happens when these frequencies are disrupted by modern technology?

With the growing use of energy saving lamps and the development of new lighting technologies, comes the long-term concern that some people who have conditions that react to light might be negatively affected by this shift.

The Health & Wellness Show: The Quackery and Cruelty of Animal Medical Research

Seventeen to 100 million mice, rats, birds, rabbits, cats, dogs, primates and other animals suffer and die in laboratories every year in the U.S. They comprise the research subjects in chemical, drug, food, cosmetics and medical training exercises to assure that products are safe for human use. But is this really the case? Though there is little mention of animal medical research, or vivisection, in the mainstream press these days, scientists, medical doctors and animal activists have railed against animal experimentation for decades. Does animal research do anything to advance human health and wellness? Despite all the years of experimentation, has it ever led to any cure or breakthrough? Can the results of research conducted on an entirely different species even be extrapolated to human beings? Is vivisection just a way for people in white lab coats to get away with torturing animals?

On today's episode of The Health and Wellness Show explored this topic in depth. Zoya's Pet Health Segment lightened up the mood with fun facts about farm animals.

How do vaccine deaths compare to gun deaths?

Please be forewarned. I'm going to go where no one probably has gone before or probably will attempt to go again. However, after reading statistics about gun deaths in the USA and how they are spun in order to gain gun control and negate the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, I feel perhaps something's just not quite cricket, so I'd like to know if readers think the same.

Furthermore, if one Constitutional Amendment is negated, that sets the stage that all can be lost! Ever think of that? Do we want that?

Recently a reader emailed me the Rense.com article "Gun Control Facts You'll Never Hear." Knowing how statistics are spun in general, I began to appreciate there's an agenda for controlling the population's perception and also what's been called "problem-reaction-solution"—the apparent solution being a preprogrammed end result impacting special interests' agendas, e.g., total gun control.

Comment: Even if vaccines don't lead to immediate deaths, the long term negative effects are too numerous to ignore and can lead to a lifetime of pain and suffering for the victims and their families.

What modern day healthcare continues to ignore about illness & addiction

Life is an ongoing process of evolution, of growth. As we are transforming both technologically and individually, there are still many materialistic worldview-systems — accompanied by rigid dogmas — that are refusing to evolve. There are some excellent examples of this in the current healthcare paradigm as described below.

Healthcare is often treating the symptoms, not the causes.

In Dr. Epstein's book The 12 Stages of Healing, he discusses the disparity between healing and curing. He says that curing involves the attempt to eliminate the symptoms, while healing is focused on the root problem.

Healing takes part in understanding what feedback the symptoms are giving us, and on integrating, not separating, the symptoms back into the whole. It is a process of awareness and transformation, not avoidance and rejection.
