Every issue of wired magazine features an article were they break down the contents of everyday household items, one in particular that comes to mind is baby formula, and they list everything in these items and tell interesting tidbits about each ingredient. I'm pretty sure one of the reasons for these articles is to raise awareness to the fact that pretty much everything has screwed up crap in it. I would also like to point out that large corporations are famous liars, the truth is costly, ask Erin Brockovich.

well, i must say, silicone tastes wonderful!

Well, it's good to know that Silicone isn't used in Pizza Hut, cause that's where my friend and I go whenever we meet up, and if I had told him, I don't know where we'd go! Fish and chips I guess. Anyone got anything to say about fish 'n' chips?!!! Or Pie and Mash... mmm

Sorry if I've missed any other developments, I didn't have time to read the whole thread, I just read that there IS silicone in the cheese, and then there ISN'T silicone in the cheese.

What people fail to realise is that vitamin companies and so called health food shops are just another version of big pharma. They are the snake oil salesmen of today. These manufactured pills and potions can put your body out of balance and actually do you harm.
We have gone too far away from source in our nutrition. The best thing is to try to keep as organic, local and free range as possible. Of course this can be very expensive. But at least cut down on manufactured goods and avoid 'formed' food - like that disgusting fake ham and 'chicken' made of pressed together gunk.
Also, a friend selling pesticides and fertiliser to farmers told me that it's the green leafy veg that absorb the most chemicals. I don't know if this is true but since then, if I do go organic, these are the ones I go for.
Having steered your nutrition in this general direction - I think it's important not to get too obsessive. The occasional 'lapse' won't kill you.

# we just had Pizza Hut last night. I had always wondered why anytime I eat Pizza Hut I have the runs. This may explain it!

those awesome ingredients that help turn boys into girls

It's not just the cheese used by Pizza's our water tables itself.

The U.S. Geological Survey recently tested 139 streams in 30 different states. It found organic wastewater contaminants (OWCs) in 80% of the streams. The most common contaminants were plant and animal steroids, insect repellents, stimulants such as caffeine, household disinfectants, fire retardants, and detergents. There was an average of seven contaminants in each stream, and some had as many as 38. [Environ Sci Technol 02;36(6):1202-11]

Herbicide and pesticide runoff obviously contributes to this contamination, but other sources are birth control pills, hormone replacement therapy drugs, and other medications that are released by human urine and fecal material.

Mutations and Sex Organ Changes

The above study didn't get too much publicity, in part because most of the levels of these contaminants were allowed by current drinking water guidelines. Unfortunately, studies have shown that mutations and sex organ changes in animals still occur even at levels far below what we allow in our drinking water supplies.

For example, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) allows atrazine levels of 3 parts per billion (ppb) in our drinking water. Tyrone Hayes of the University of California, Berkeley found that when tadpoles were exposed to atrazine levels of only 0.1 ppb they developed extra testes, or even ovaries. Atrazine promotes the conversion of testosterone to estrogen, which explains why male frogs often developed both male and female sexual organs. Also, when adult frogs were exposed to these low levels they developed smaller larynxes and had only one-tenth the testosterone level of unexposed frogs. [Proc Natl Acad Sci USA 02;99(8):5476-80]

In other studies, researchers found that reproduction was disrupted in female birds that were exposed to estrogen at levels now commonly found in the wild. Finches exposed to estrogen produced fewer eggs and had more fragile shells. Numbers of hatchlings fell dramatically and the newborns had malformed oviducts. [Horm Behav 02;41(2):236-41]

When you begin to read the details of these studies and talk with the researchers, the picture that emerges is like something out of a horror movie: hermaphrodite frogs, alligators born with shrunken penises, frogs with extra legs and duplicate sets of sex organs, male fish producing the yolk protein normally produced only by females, female birds with brain formations that cause them to sing like male birds--and the list goes on and on.

Most of this information is not new. We first began to notice environmental hormone exposure in the animal population about 15 years ago. Even then it was scary.

Children are Small Creatures Too

As we move up the food chain, we have discovered that the changes in our environment are also affecting our children. Due to our ever increasing use of estrogen and estrogen-like compounds, puberty is occurring earlier and earlier. The effect on girls has been known for some time, now a new study is showing similar results for boys.

The last analysis found that the average age of boys developing pubic hair was 12 years of age in Caucasians, 12.3 years of age in Mexican-Americans, and 11.2 years in African-Americans. These ages are roughly 1/2 year earlier than what previous studies had shown.

While these figures represent the "average" ages, a recent study, from the University of North Carolina, found that 21% of black individuals had developed pubic hair between the ages of nine and 10, compared to only 4.3% of the white boys and only 3.3% of the Mexican-American boys. [Arch Pediatr Adolese Med 01;155(9):988- 9]

We are Not Immune

Among human adults, no one has really looked at the situation that closely. However, we do know that miscarriages are becoming more common, fertility levels are dropping, increasing testosterone levels in the elderly have become commonplace, and studies have shown that our increased exposure to estrogen and estrogen-like compounds has increased the incidence of both breast and testicular cancers.

It may be just a matter of time before these contaminants are linked to increased childhood cancers, deformities, depression, obesity, and perhaps a long list of other heath problems.

Source and whole article found here:

The human species is systematically destroying this once beautiful planet we call home.

I had also read somewhere years back that the all the estrogen from the millions of women on birth control (when they pee it goes into our water that is recycled) can't be extracted at the water recycling plants and men now are drinking that water with estrogen.

Little things add up.

Any people out there work with recycling water?

We filter all our drinking water (even the dog's) but your largest organ is your skin and I imagine that just by showering, bathing or brushing your teeth some of the junk in our water is still absorbed.

The pollution of our planet is affecting all of us.

yes i know im replying to my self.. just coz i can lol

just though i would pick a random E number


Patent Blue V, also called Food Blue 5 or Sulphan Blue, is a dark bluish synthetic dye used as a food coloring. As a food additive, it has E number E131. It is a sodium or calcium salt of [4-(α-(4-diethylaminophenyl)-5-hydroxy- 2,4-disulfophenyl-methylidene)-2,5-cyclohexadien-1-ylidene] diethylammonium hydroxide inner salt. It has the appearance of a violet powder.

Its CAS number is [3536-49-0] and its SMILES structure is CCN(CC)c1ccc(cc1)C(=C2C=CC(C=C2)=[N+](CC)CC)c3cc(O)c(OS([O-])=O)cc3OS([O-])=O. It is not widely used, but can be found in Scotch eggs and certain jelly sweets. Patent Blue V is banned as a food dye in Australia, USA, and Norway.

In medicine, Patent Blue V is used in lymphangiography as a dye to color lymph vessels.[1] Though there is lot of ambiguity of the name patent blue v and it is different than food blue 5. It is also used in dental disclosing tablets as a stain to show dental plaque on teeth.

It may cause allergic reactions, with symptoms ranging from itching and nettle rash to nausea, hypotension, and in rare cases anaphylactic shock; it is not recommended for children.

well now i feel safe!

mmm yes please anaphylactic shock!!! haha

Food you eat is like your life A ILLUSION looks good dont it? untill you read the small print.

How come i read something about lots of cheeses used in the prepared food industry having a high percentage of 'plastic' in its structure...
Over Ten Years Ago ?

i caution, warn, & tell all the extended family & friends/associates
that there sure ain't 5 glasses of milk in one slice of cheese, as spun by the food processor corps.
Now Where did i dig up the "cheese ± plastic" info, a decade ago ?
i am for-sure i didn't fantasize or dream that factoid up

in any case whatever the frankenfood is...people tend to forget or pay no attention to begin with, so i hope your thread does better than i did in alerting/motivating the people...

This reminds me when I was like 8 years old, my school went on a field trip to a Pizza Hut and we all got to make our own pizzas with whatever we wanted on them, and I remember getting to pick the cheese. However I guess all that has changed now though. Pretty sickening to be honest, lucky I don't eat Pizza Hut, it has way too much oil in it, one or two pieces can fill you up just from the oils in the slices.

The numerous posts that are dealing with nothing but pizza hut and the silicon thing tells me it's not really a thread about food.

I just think it should be given a hoax tag and if people want to talk about food problems, make another thread for it. As it is, it's just a thread that is passing off dis-information.

It's bad, because each and every person who takes this story and runs with it will be made to look like a fool as a result later on when they get corrected. Being "educated" and such means knowing what is true and also what is false. That isn't going on here.

It's not helping anyone. Misinformation never does.

Seriously. Just after KFC introduced their "grilled chicken" specials, my wife and I stopped in to check it out. It wasn't particularly tasty. However, even before we'd finished, I remarked "Damn! What is this crap on my hands??"

Every place I'd actually touched the grilled chicken, my hands were stained, as with a tanning solution. Fingers were all "golden brown," little smudges and smears on my skin had turned "golden brown"... I was alarmed.

My wife looked at her hands, and they were similarly stained. It was like that QT quick-tan stuff they spray on your body for a fake tan (Plus, it didn't wash off — took two days before the crap finally wore off).

And we had just eaten it.

But never again. We've since boycotted KFC and we recommend that others do likewise.

One thing I notice about Pizza Hut is that their standard pizza tastes like microwave pizza. It tastes like something one would get out of the frozen food section of the grocery store, take home, and cook in five minutes. You can buy these for less than a buck where I shop. Where does Pizza Hut get off selling these things for $15-20 regular price? It's ridiculous.
