Thank you for this hilarious thread, don't forget that yellow #5 shrinks your testies too lol... Nothing like a good laugh before work


but my favorite part was somewhere along this thread, someone actually said that there is no such thing as eating healthy; now that was something special.

I would advise if your trying to eat healthier, then you should just get plain old organic yogurt and add some fresh fruit to it.

but be careful cause the spoon your eating it with contains all kinds of harmful metals hahaha.

That was a well informed and educated reply my friend, something that has been sorely lacking on ATS of late.

I agree with most of what you are saying and do realise that the food industry do put a lot of unnatural stuff into our food, but mostly it's for financial reasons, rather than conspiratorial reasons, as stated in the OP.

The information I supplied was referencing meat products only. Livestock is EXTREMELY well regulated, due to laws passed through the EU courts, especially since the recent outbreaks of Mad Cow and Foot and Mouth throughout the UK farms.

The sad thing is that once it has left the farmer and been butchered, the food industry can do pretty much whatever they want to it and they do!

you can always make your own yogurt its relay easy. you can buy little incubate type things. you just add milk and sugar and whatever flavoring you want and a small amount of natural yogurt and it grows its self. next day its ready to eat.

here is an example

www.homeandgardengifts.co.uk...

the one i remember was no where near as flashy as this




the only things that go in is what you want.

nice and simple

i remember making it as a kid with my mum one of the first things she introduced me into making because its so easy

I think you are a being a bit paranoid/obsessive here.

TO pick out one item of food. out of the thousands of things in your house. is very odd.

And then to reel off pages of words about how evil they are. when in fact they are being consciousness about labelling "crush pot" I don't know of any other company that does this. There are thousands of empty packaging being dumped a day, which are much more likely to trap and kill an animal. then a yoghurt pot.

The only bad thing here, is its a crap yoghurt. it's over processed and with too many additives. What isn't these days?

I think you need to take a look at yourself for a second. and ask yourself. is this normal behaviour?

whats your motivation behind "getting fit, being healthy, or dieting"

so u can look better? so u can do more? so u can have more energy?

you think kids know how to "eat healthy" no. they just eat whatever..

Edit: I didn't notice that the cups were cone shaped - almost all text I edited out below was because it's was not in context with the reality of the cup design! - I'm sorry! my mistake!
-----

Edit: Edited out text here which was not in context with the reality of the actual cone shaped killer design of the Yoplait plastic cup.


The main problem here is all plastic cups in general - but Yoplait apparently have a killer cup design which is worse than the others because of the idiotic design.

OK! how could we solve this problem?

Well! the most obvious way could be to produce square plastic cups and containers?


Is it easier for our furry friends to get their heads out of square cups?

I mean, the main problem here is that animals like to lick these cups and then get stuck, right?

And the main problem is that the hole is round and the container is quite deep - that's why they get stuck when they are trying to lick the delicious leftover yogurt from the bottom of these containers.

How about making these cups more wide and more flat and not so deep?

Could this solve the problem? would that be a much more expensive design?

Yep! I think that design is more expensive, but could be better?

Would some kind of breakable/chewable wide papercups be better for wild aninmals?

OK! what should we do?

Well! in Europe they are taking some middle way by printing these labels and are placing plastic recycling bins in the streets/at home/at recycling centers which should minimize that many of these cups end up in nature.

Since we now have very tough regulations about trash mangement we don't have so many "landfills" they same way as you do in the U.S - so we are more convinced that these cups - if thrown in our plastic recycling centers, don't end up in the nature and pose a threat to our animal life.

A lot of our plastic produts from our plastic recycling centers are then processed here at home into new plastic again.

Other plastic like big 2 litres soda plastic-bottles get exported to India where they make new bottles and sell back to our producers.

Since the new tough regulations about recycling here in the EU - less plastic ends up in the nature to be a threat to the wild animal life.

So maybe plastic recycling could be ONE important part of this problem of all these killer cups?


But until then, don't forget to crush them before disposing them in the dustbin/garbage bin


But I understand that the "landfills" are the biggest problems for you guys - the wild animals are looking for food there maybe?

Here in Scandinavia where I now live - we don't have many landfills.

Under EU policy, landfilling is seen as the last resort and should only be used when all the other options have been exhausted.

Here they are seperating the plastics and most garbage & then processing all garbage through different processes.

Then they burn some of this less toxic garbage to make hot water & warming for houses through gigantic networks of pipelines which you as a home owner can connect to.

Organic garbage are often seperated in our homes in different containers and are then collected to composting plants, making BIO-GAS for public tranportation buses in our cities.

Here's some useful links if you are interested about Sustainable Consumption & Production and waste treatment in the EU?
scp.eionet.europa.eu...

And this sounds like it could be good news regarding packaging?:


Press Releases

27/01/2010 Retailers and Manufacturers join forces to drive global change in packaging
Global project on packaging and sustainability enters pilot phase

In an ongoing effort to drive global change in packaging, leaders from many of the world’s largest consumer goods companies and major retailers have approved a suggested set of common definitions and principles for packaging in the framework of sustainability. This common language will support a global discourse on packaging in the context of environmental, economic and social impacts.

www.europen.be...

Maybe someone in America can write to them about these plastic killer cups which clearly pose a great threat to the wildlife and our small furry friends?

My soul purpose, is because it makes me feel vulnerable. not being able to lift heavy things, not being able to throw a good hard punch. and the fact that it can increase your quality and length of life.

That's why i workout. and eat well.

i don't think that's a bad thing. if you think it is then i feel sorry for you.

actually it is the design specific to yoplait. If other yogurts employ this design I am not aware.

The cup is narrow atop and wide at bottom.

Versus wide top taper bottom.

You raise excellent points in your post.

I have been aware of the soda palstic ring problem since childhood, the 70s.

Maybe I am dumb but at least now I am aware of the other dangers out there.

Ahh! thank you so much for explaining this for me tater!

I was so confused and couldn't follow the reasoning behind your argument!

I'm soo very sorry! I actually missed to see that obvious design-flaw of the Yoplait cups - I can now see that they have these cone-shape cups with a more narrow top.

Of course! with this design the upper more narrow hole of the cup at the top, hinders the animals to get their heads out again, even more than other more normal plastic cups, obviously.

What the heck were they thinking? :shk:

OK! now i'm with you 110% - Yoplait/General Mills should change that design-flaw immediately if they have any common sense at all.

People should boycott Yoplait/General Mills until sucha design-change is made IMO!

I haven't seen that strange design of Yoplait cups yet here in Europe, and hopefully we will never see them either.

That's why I got soo confused with your argument! because I was thinking of the Yoplait cups we have here in Europe
I'm so sorry!

Yeah! all similar cups are very bad to the wildlife and to our small furry friends, but this cup from Yoplait is clearly more dangerous, especially because of that idiotic design.

Who could have thought - a conspiracy against our small furry friends!


It's propably just a stupid design mistake by some designer who never gave a thought on how these cups can impact the wildlife and that animals can get stuck in them with their small heads.

And the suits at the corporation HQ couldn't care less on how their product could pose a threat to wildlife - they probably just looked at the design and thought it was cool and different - and gave it the green light without asking the squirrels


But of course! this obvious design-flaw in combination with that printed warning don't look good in the critical eye of any informed customers and animal friends like you & me!

And no! you are not dumb my friend - But I was on the other hand an Idiot for not noticing the obvious cone-shaped design-flaw of the Yoplait cup from your photos on the first page! - I'm so sorry! will you please forgive me?


Thanks so much for bringing this information into the light & public eye!

I own 1% of this co. that has the world's purest ALIVE protein on this planet besides Mothers Breast Milk. See what you think and if you need this gift I've left here. surfingmarty@gmail.com

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) ON “UNDENATURED WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE”

1. What is THIS PRODUCT?

A. this product is not a prescription drug, but a powerful and unique patented (8 Method of Use Patents world­wide, and 5 US Patents) un-denatured and highly bio-active whey protein dietary supplement that is loaded with glutathione precursors, this product took $10 million and 18 years of research to perfect. The primary researcher involved in the discovery of this product is Gustavo Bounous, MD.

this product is a highly concentrated milk serum isolate which is high in protein (90% protein by weight) and is lactose-free and fat-free, this product shares many of the same immune promoting and enhancing properties of Mother's milk, this product has been clinically proven to increase serum and tissue glutathione levels, and its efficacy is validated by extensive research, including over 390 published scientific studies and review articles which appear in the medical literature and are available for you to examine through our MEDLINE (National Library of medicine) link.

This product increases glutathione, which is your cells' own natural antioxidant and most potent detoxifier. this product has been demonstrated to enhance both healthy and deficient immune systems, and is validated as an effective nutritional supplement by the medical community, this product is the only non-prescription dietary supplement to appear in the year 2000 Physician's Desk Reference (PDR) for Prescription Drugs, although it is available without prescription! It has it's own NDC (National Drug Control) number, and is reimbursable under Medicaid, Medicare, and by private insurance in many states.

2. Is this product approved by the FDA for the treatment of cancer, chronic fatigue, auto-immune, and glutathione deficiency diseases?

A. No. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not "approve" any nutritional supplements for these indications. The FDA determines the safety of nutritional supplements, and regulates or restricts the distribution of those products considered to pose a health risk to the American public, this product is considered to be "generally recognized as Safe", (GRAS) by the FDA. This is the same classification given vitamin C. Based on a recent decision by the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, the FDA is tolerating references to certain therapeutic uses of nutritional supplements which are based on strong scientific or clinical evidence and "significant scientific agreement". Because this product is manufactured by a Canadian company, the manufacturer is more sensitive to the regulatory pressures of the FDA than American supplement manufacturers, and has chosen to be ultra-conservative in their marketing of the product. No disease treatment claims are made concerning this product.

3. What is the difference between this product and other whey proteins?

A. this product has been shown to differ from other whey proteins in its effect upon the immune system. Specifically, scientific studies on other whey proteins have not shown the same immune stimulating effects that are seen with this product. this_product is has been extensively studied in the clinical literature. Comparing the bio-active ingredients in this product to those in other whey proteins clearly shows the superiority of this product, this product is a bioactive dietary supplement that is supported by eighteen years of research through rigorous clinical trials that have been published in peer review journals. These studies, performed in world-renowned medical and scientific institutions, attest to the efficacy of this product, this product studies have shown that this product not only increases intracellular levels of GSH (glutathione or glutathione precursors) following ingestion, but also significantly builds up the stores of these substances inside the cells. This beneficial effect lasts for considerable periods of time after ingestion of this product.

4. What is the product's bioactivity dependent upon?

A. Concentrations of 3 bioactive and thermolabile (easily damaged by heat) proteins that are contained in the milk serum: serum albumin, alpha lactalbumin and lactoferrin. Because these compounds can be damaged by heat (in excess of 140 degrees F) or excessive mechanical agitation, this product must not be cooked, heated, or placed in a steel-bladed blender. For these reasons, and to preserve the bioactivity of its serum albumin, alpha lactalbumin and lactoferrin, this product has not been exposed to standard high-temperature Pasteurization. Rather, it has been bio-filtered to remove bacteria, and subjected to patent-process low-temperature purification procedures to ensure its safety and purity.

5. If a different manufacturer of whey protein supplements was able to duplicate our technology, could they make the same claims? A. No. The power of our patents is not in manufacturing, this product patents (presently there are eight patents on this product: 5 US patents, and 3 international patents) relate to the METHOD OF USE. That is, no other whey protein can state: "clinically PROVEN to stimulate the immune system", and "significantly raises glutathione levels". Additionally,



although there are dozens of companies producing denatured (high-heat Pasteurized) whey proteins (primarily for use as a protein source in body-building), there currently is no company manufacturing an UNDENATURED whey protein product similar to this_product. Over 390 clinical studies and medical reviews appear in the clinical literature which specifically involved this product, and not other whey proteins. Accept no imitations.

6. What exactly is glutathione and how is it important?

A. Glutathione is the master antioxidant of the body. Without glutathione, we die. The replenishment of the glutathione levels within the lymphocytes (also called leucocytes or white blood cells) increases the intensity of the immune response. The increase in glutathione levels also results in the proliferation of lymphocytes that act as a scavengers, and helps to combat infections. Selenium (a micronutrient and mineral) is a structural component of, and a co-factor for the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase. For this reason, supplementation with selenium can modestly increase glutathione levels in persons who are selenium deficient.

Glutathione is a tri-peptide of the amino acids cysteine, glycine, and glutamic acid. Tissue glutathione levels increase when cystine levels increase within the cell. This is why cystine is critical in the production of glutathione, but prior to the development of this product, no effective way was known to safely and significantly increase cystine levels in the cell over long periods of time. A deficiency of glutathione can cause hemolysis (the destruction of red blood cells resulting in severe anemia) and numerous diseases of oxidative stress.

Low glutathione levels are commonly found among the elderly, those undergoing cancer chemotherapy, and among patients suffering from autoimmune and immune deficiency diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFSIDS), fibromyalgia, and AIDS. Glutathione is essential in intermediary metabolism as a donor of sulfhydryl groups (which are essential for the detoxification of the liver). That is why the only known "side effects" associated with this product supplementation are associated with the beneficial detoxification which occurs as a result of improved liver function. The antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase functions in the process of elimination of wastes from the body. Glutathione works within the liver, lungs, colon, kidneys, and skin in the process of removing toxic eliminating cellular metabolic wastes.

7. What is the difference between products or pills that people use as supplements that are labeled as "glutathione" or "cystine"?

A. Glutathione is produced within the cells (intra-cellularly). When taking a pill labeled "glutathione", dinical and laboratory studies demonstrate that oral glutathione is NOT absorbed but will be eliminated by the liver through the bile before ever reaching the systemic circulation (blood stream). Cystine is not well absorbed when taken by mouth. Injectable glutathione also has limited benefits. It is unstable in the blood stream. By the time it gets to the cell, much of it gets degraded, and much of this remaining glutathione cannot effectively pass through the cell membrane.

Clinical studies have demonstrated that oral cystine supplementation (NAC or N Acetyl L-Cysteine) is NOT effective in increasing cystine levels within the cell, and has also not been associated with significant increases in glutathione levels within the cell. The three bioactive proteins supplied by this product constitute a "natural delivery system" from these cystine precursors to the cell (in order to facilitate clinically and statistically significant increases in glutathione levels in BOTH the extracellular serum and intracellular tissues). Because this product provides the building blocks for cystine, and these building blocks for cystine are easily transported inside the cell where they can be quickly synthesized into glutathione, this product is therefore ideally suited to increase glutathione levels within the cell.

8. What is the difference between NAC (N Acetyl L-Cysteine) and this product? A. N Acetyl L-Cysteine (NAC) is sulfur-containing (sulfhydryl) amino acid which is present in many proteins, and is in the same class as the amino add methionine. NAC is a naturally occurring amino sugar and is a form of cysteine which has been demonstrated to facilitate the SHORT TERM cellular detoxification of alcohol, tobacco smoke, acetaminophen [Tylenol®] poisoning and environmental pollutants in several in vitro studies. When Cystine is heated, molecular bonds are cleaved and it becomes Cysteine. Cysteine is beneficial if it is produced INSIDE the cell, but is mildly toxic if it is produced outside the cell. NAC does not travel well in the blood stream, and doesn't reach the cells (to be used to synthesize glutathione and Glutamic add).

NAC supplementation over long periods has been associated with modest increases in serum glutathione, but has not proven particularly useful in the treatment of chronic, long-term intracellular glutathione deficiendes. Furthermore, therapeutic levels of NAC are relatively toxic and have been associated with significant side effects. At therapeutic doses, oral NAC supplementation has been associated with cerebral symptoms, nausea, blurred vision, and vomiting, this product provides the precursors for the manufacture of intra-cellular cystine, and effectively delivers these to the cell. For this reason, this product supplementation has been associated with sustained and significant



increases of cellular glutathione, and is virtually devoid of troublesome side-effects, this product has the same side-effect profile as mothers' milk.

9. What is the difference between bovine colostrum and this product?

A. The proteins in colostrum have almost no cystine content. Cystine is critically essential to the immune system. Although Growth Factors present in colostrum (including IGF-1, or Insulin-like growth Factor-1 which is effective in promoting muscle growth) are not affected by stomach acid, research published by one manufacturer of Colostrum (Vital Health News, Winter 1998, page 7) demonstrated that "the effectiveness of the immune factors present in colostrum is lowered by stomach acid."

Although the immune enhancing factors found in colostrum are often "preferable to single isolated immune components" (such as interferon, which is more likely to cause troublesome side effects), colostrum has NOT been demonstrated to be superior to isolated undenatured whey proteins such as this product. Colostrum (which is produced during the first 26 hours following birth by the mammary glands) is primarily composed of immunoglobulin and some lactoferrin. According to both laboratory experiments and clinical trials conducted in Germany, although colostrum supplementation was associated with mild increases in immune function in some patients, these increases were not statistically significant, (p=ns).

A postulated mechanism of action of colostrum is the inter-species transfer of immune factors, however this has NOT been clinically proven. Most of the data supporting the effectiveness of colostrum is anecdotal (consisting mostly of personal testimonies rather than clinical studies). Since the primary mechanism of action on the immune system is via stimulation of the synthesis (production) of glutathione, the near absence of glutathione precursors in the immunoglobulin fraction (from the colostrum) may explain its relative lack of effect.

Conversely, this product contains substantial amounts of thermolabite (heat-sensitive) proteins that are rich in cystine and glutamyicystine (known precursors of glutathione), and the effectiveness of this product has been demonstrated in numerous human clinical trials which found statistically significant increases in glutathione and indices of immune function (such as CD4:CD8 ratios). Colostrum might be beneficial as an adjunctive (add-on) therapy to this product, but the clinical data is significantly more convincing for this product.

10. How does the manufacturing of our product differ from other whey proteins?

A, In the manufacturing of other whey proteins several things occur: in the process of heating and Pasteurization, critical bonds holding the cystine together get broken down ("denatured", meaning they loose their original nature-similar to the denaturing and irreversible changing of liquid egg white by the heating process involved in frying an egg). The exact type of proteins that serve to increase tissue and serum glutathione most effectively are lost or diminished. The researchers (the manufacturers of this product) have developed a process by which these delicate proteins remain intact in their natural form to serve us most effectively.

11. What are some additional benefits of whey proteins?

A. this product has been clinically demonstrated to increase exercise capacity by 13 percent (Lands et al., 1999), and may be useful as a supplement for competitive athletes. IVaffanabe ef al. (Japan) conducted a clinical study with this product to evaluate increases in GSH among patients with Hepatitis 6 and C, and found that these viruses are vulnerable to glutathione. In-vitro studies in Japan also showed that whey can stimulate the bone cell (osteoblasts) to produce more bone, hence increasing bone density and reducing the risk of osteoporosis. Lactalbumin from whey protein has been demonstrated to kill breast cancer cells in vitro (in a test-tube). Glutathione (from whey protein) lowers serum cholesterol by stimulating bile synthesis in the liver. In addition, glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that will prevent lipid peroxidation (a sign of free radical activity). Lipid peroxidation is implicated in arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), stroke and coronary artery disease.

12. What is the theoretical mechanism of action of GLUTATHIONE in Cancer and Immune dysfunction?

A. Natural killer (Immune) cells may become glutathione-depleted over time, and immune response weakens. THIS PRODUCT raises glutathione levels and strengthens the immune system to fight cancer, viruses, bacteria, etc. For those patients receiving traditional medical therapy for their cancers, THIS PRODUCT supplies lactalbumin and has been clinically proven to raise glutathione levels. Glutathione and lactalbumin (a component of THIS PRODUCT) have been associated with the strengthening of healthy cells and (paradoxically) the weakening of cancerous cells. In research conducted by C. Svanborg et al, lactalbumin was associated with apoptosis (or the programmed death) of breast cancer cells. Glutathione has been scientifically demonstrated to decrease cancerous cells' resistance to chemotherapeutic drugs, while protecting healthy cells. This would theoretically allow a patient to respond better to chemotherapy with less side effects.







. 13. What are the diseases or conditions that have been associated with low glutathione levels?

. Most of the autoimmune and degenerative diseases of aging including: Acetaminophen poisoning, ADD, Addison's Disease, aging, AIDS, Alopecia Areata, ALS, Alzheimers, Disease, anemia (hemolytic), Ankylosing Spondylitis,Arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), arthritis (rheumatoid), asthma, autism, autoimmune disease, Behcet's Disease, bums, cacexia, cancer, Candida infection, cardiomyopathy (idiopathic), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, colitis, coronary artery disease, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, Crohn's disease, eczema, emphysema, Epstein Barr Viral (EBV) syndrome, fibromyalgia, free radical overload, Goodpasture Syndrome, Graves' Disease, hepatic dysfunction (liver disease), hepatitis B, hepatitis C, hypercholesterolemia (high blood cholesterol), herpes, infections (viral, bacterial and fungal), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), lupus, macular degeneration (diabetic macular degeneration), malnutrition, Meniere's disease, multiple sclerosis, Myasthenia Gravis, neurodegenerative diseases, nutritional disorders, Parkinson's disease, Pemphigus Vulgaris, Primary Biliary Cirrhosis, progeria, psoriasis, Rheumatic Fever, Sarcoidosis, scteroderma, shingles, stroke, surgery, toxic poisoning, trauma, vasculitis, vitiligo, and Wegener's Granulomatosis.

14. Has therapy to increase glutathione levels been effective in treating

the diseases or conditions that have been associated with low glutathione levels?

A. Yes. See: Medline Search Page

15. Can a person who is lactose intolerant take this product?

A. Yes, this product has less than 1% lactose which should not cause any ill effect even in the most severe

case of lactose intolerance.

16. Can a person who is intolerant of Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) take this product?

A. Yes, this_product has NO added MSG which should not cause any ill effect even in the most severe case of MSG intolerance, this product contains the following amount of glutamic acid by weight: 180 mg/gram. There is therefore 1.8 grams of glutamic acid in a 10 gram packet of this product. Every single protein on the earth contains glutamic add, and glutamic acid is required for good health. Glutamic acid is an amino acid formed in the digestion of ALL proteins (including wheat gluten and meat). It is the only amino acid metabolized by the brain. Glutamic acid is necessary in human nutrition but can usually be manufactured by the body in adequate amounts. That means that our own body produces it. In certain disease states, deficient diet, malnutrition, and in certain metabolic abnormalities this amino acid becomes conditionally essential. Glutamic Acid's sodium salt, is monosodium glutamate, and ALL proteins may contain naturally occurring trace amounts of MSG. In summary, this product would not supply any more glutamic acid than a serving of steak or other similar protein. There is NO added MSG in this product, and this product should not cause a medical problem in a person highly sensitive to MSG.

17 .Are there any interactions known between supplements such as coenzy me Q-10, antioxidant vitamins, or herbs and this product?

A. No, there are no known potential or reported interactions between this product and nutritional supplements. In fact, this product increases glutathione levels, which helps to improve the action of antioxidant vitamins (which are less effective if your glutathione levels are impaired). For this reason, mega-doses of antioxidant vitamins (i.e. doses in excess of 10 times the RDA of these vitamins) are not required if you are supplementing with this product. As we age, our glutathione levels fall precipitously like a down-hill ski-slope. Low levels of glutathione are associated with a host of degenerative diseases, and critically low levels of serum and tissue glutathione often predict that death is imminent. Supplementation with this product helps restore these precious glutathione levels, and helps the supplemental vitamins we are taking to work more effectively to maintain optimum health!

18. Are there any interactions known between prescription medications and this product?

A. No, there are no known interactions between this product and prescription drugs, this product is composed of the same basic proteins which are found in human breast milk, and should be considered to be as safe to take as mothers' breast milk. Furthermore, this product is 90% protein, and is one of the best sources of highly-absorbable protein on the planet. Patients taking immunosuppressant drugs such as Cyclosporin® should consult their physician before taking this product.



19. Are there any side effects associated with this product?

A. thjs product increases serum and liver glutathione levels. When liver glutathione levels rise, the liver is able to more effectively detoxify the body (which is a beneficial function of this product. Some patients (especially those who have been exposed to high levels of environmental toxins) may have a mild temporary reaction to these mobilized toxins as the liver is removing them from storage in body fat. Typically, reducing the dose of this product will allow these temporary side effects to quickly disappear, this product is composed of the same basic proteins that are found in human breast milk, and has the same side effect profile as mothers' breast milk. Because this product is a milk protein, persons who are mildly allergic to milk proteins may experience minor gastric distress from thjs product. This gastric distress usually disappears if you reduce the dose of this product. Persons with serious milk-protein allergies should not take this product

20. Can you overdose this product? Is there any potential for toxicity if you take too much?
A. Your greatest risk is wasting your money if you take "too much" this product. Clinical data seems to indicate there is limited benefit from exceeding 30 grams per day (3 scoops per day) of this product. Because our cells have an innate mechanism of "feed-back inhibition" with respect to the glutathione synthesis precursors (building blocks) provided by this product, there is no potential for making "too much glutathione" within the cell if large quantities of this product are consumed, this product supplementation will result in establishment of normal glutathione levels, (NOT excessive glutathione levels) within the cell. Excess this product would be metabolized as protein (this product is an excellent source of protein, containing 90% protein by dry weight).

21. Because this product is 90% protein, is it contraindicated in patients on renal dialysis who must limit protein intake?

A. No, this product is not contraindicated in these patients. Although we suggest that you consult your personal physician with medical questions such as these, there is no reason to believe that this product would be harmful in these patients, this product is one of the most easily digested and most easily absorbed forms of protein in the diet. Its Protein Efficiency Ratio (PER: a mark of the quality of a protein) is extremely high, and in conditions such as renal failure where protein intake must be limited, it is most prudent to consume the highest quality proteins such as whey proteins and egg white proteins, versus lower quality proteins that produce more problematic metabolic waste by-products and residues.

22. Is this product contraindicated in Celiac Sprue disease?

A. No. These patients are usually instructed not ingest wheat or gluten. There is no wheat, or gluten in this product. Furthermore, this product is lactose-free. There is no reason to believe that that this product would be detrimental in patients with Celiac Sprue.

23. Who should not take the product?

A. People with an allergy specifically to milk protein, (which is very rare). NOTE: Please understand that lactose intolerance is NOT a milk allergy. Also, anyone who has had an organ transplant and is receiving immunosuppressant therapy should not take thjs product unless instructed to do so by his or her physician or another health care professional. The immune system needs to be suppressed in order to prevent organ rejection, and this product may counteract immunosuppressant medicines such as cyclosporin®.

24. What are some of the critical ingredients in a daily amount of this product (1 pouch)?

A. 9 grams or 90% Protein, 0 Fat, less than 0% Lactose, 60 mg of Calcium, 4 micrograms of Selenium, 30 Mg of Potassium, 4 mg of Iron, and approximately 40 Calories.

25. What is the recommended dose for taking this product?

A. Check with your physician or health care professional. If you do not have a documented glutathione deficiency and are taking this product for good health, one pack per day is not unreasonable. Generally, most studies conducted using this product in patients with glutathione deficiencies used at least 20 grams per day (2 pouches), and some studies showed increased effectiveness using up to 30 grams (3 pouches) per day. Most of our customers use 2 boxes per month (this provides 2 pouches, or 20 grams per day per month).






26. What is the difference in taking this product as opposed to taking other antioxidants?

A. Vitamin E and C are important antioxidants, and you should consider these important supplements in your diet, this product is not an antioxidant per se, but provides the building blocks for the synthesis of glutathione, which is THE principle intra-cellular antioxidant. Glutathione is the most potent cellular antioxidant known to man, and is hundreds of times more potent than vitamin C or vitamin E. For this reason, glutathione has been called the "Super Antioxidant". By raising the glutathione level within our bodies we provide for the optimum functioning of other lesser antioxidants such as vitamins C and E. More importantly, glutathione serves as a detoxifying agent for multiple toxins that we encounter on a daily basis through the environment and medications we are exposed to. Glutathione has been demonstrated to act as an effective protectant against ultraviolet radiation, which is important in view of the continued loss of the ozone layer.

I never thought about yougurt before...

I buy cheap brands (president's choice) no aspartame or acetate in it. I buy the big formats and use containers for growing plants or freeze my food.

Thank you to bring that to our attention.

I personally don't see how the the cup is any different form any other packaging consumer products come in. There isn't going to be a mass genocide of wildlife because of these containers. If I remember right Peta did and continues to kill a bunch of pet animals but that's ok right.

I agree with the aspartame but that's it. Also everything we eat, make clothes out of, or build with, animal or plant, is alive and has a consciousness just food for thought.

I believe aspartame kills. And it is my fault for buying something with aspartame in it. So I accept that, and am making an effort to buy more responsibly.

Plastics are causing hormonal changes in men, new studies show.

All of these things have been discussed right here on ats. Just look around for five minutes, the proof is staring at us.

It comes down to we are above all a consumerist society. We Consume, and no matter how hard you try, most typical americans are using plastics and buying foods with killer ingredients like aspartame and red 40 (soft killing is a method of death too, plus technically everything we do leads to our death we are born to die).

Short of holing up in a cave, or digging into a life off the land, not everyone can do that right now. Some people are stuck in this consumerist driven society and we try to make as many good choices as we can to make up for the crap choices we really dont have much choice over.

So thus this is why I came to my conclusions, and also, this is why the points raised in this thread both for and against my theory is needed and appreciated.

I had remembered Yoplait as being a fairly decent yogurt from my childhood, although I don't think I had eaten any since the '70s.

Got some the other day, and spit out the first bite. Nasty. Looked at the label, and it's the one you posted. Big change from when I was a kid. Tossed the thing. It was inedible, and for me, that's tough to do, I'll eat just about anything.

Dannon "fruit on the bottom" is slightly less disgusting from an ingredient standpoint, although it still has HFCS in it.

You could do the obvious, although it's a tad inconvenient: make your own. Yogurt is a little harder than making buttermilk, but you will generally get it right after the third try or so. And once you get the process down, you can switch to "the good stuff" and use homemade jam and organic or raw milk.

(edit - Dannon "All Natural" plain with homemade jam in it is about as food-friendly as it comes:

Cultured grade A milk. Contains active yogurt cultures including L. acidophilus.)

Why is this thread so popular? I dont understand what with all the other threads speaking of health risk of processed foods in general not just one particular type and brand.

To the OP you complain about the container killing cute cuddly wildlife because of its design and post a picture of it specifically saying to crush the cup before you throw it away, and then make blatantly aware that you yourself do not crush the cups before you throw it away. If your that concerned about the wildlife then simply crush the cup and throw it away, or do not eat it at all. but dont come on here complaining that it kills wildlife. if they put that warning on there to crush it they leave the responsibility in your hands to not kill the wildlife.

you may be solely responsible in a few deaths of the little creatures yourself. how does that make you feel? you should have just crushed it.
