I wouldn't trust the FDA. I mean they put fluoride into city tap water for supposedly helping your teeth. Which you might think, hey that's a good thing, but the interesting part is that fluoride isn't meant to be ingested. For example, your toothpastes. What do they say? Don't eat the toothpaste! What is an ingredient of toothpaste? Fluoride. Also, studies show calcification of the pineal gland in lab rats. From there, I don't trust the FDA. I'll take Mister Oz's word over theirs. He also stated cannabis is an antioxidant. Really surprised me on that episode lol.

Ok so now at least 60 people know our that we and our children are veing poisened by our govt. Now what? Im starting to wonder, whats the point of everyone standing around sharing all this information when we find rhe smoking gun and not much is ever done about it. Go ahead and hate rhe middle east and other places labled terrorists but in fact they stand and put their life on the line for their beliefs and we stand around labeling all of these outside communities and then stand around and and do nothing when you and your children and freinds and families are poisened. Enjoy your gossiping i guess. And ur poisens. Funny thing is that being patriotic was once standing with your govt and now it seems like standing against it is more patriotic.

I can't even begin to describe how much crap the tap water has. Cyanide and arsenic are in the tap water. Don't be discouraged if you thoughts led you to believes that there isn't. Remember it's in small increments but, why? Why does it have to be there in the first place? How can things like this just go by unnoticed?

Because its naturally occuring, which means anything growing in the wild can absorb the stuff.

Apple Juice in the US is required by the FDA to be pasteurized, which kills almost all contaminants. Apple Juice that is not pasteurized is required to have a label stating it.

Also, as said above in some other posts, the way the test was conducted is flawed and is not representative of what actually is there.

The problem is it's not just in drinks, it's in food and even things that shouldn't even have arsenic.


This is what I have been thinking too.....logical deduction.....if arsenic is in the apple juice....then it must also be in the apples themselves.....and then I think....people claim their food is organic...but is it really?

And then I start thinking....about drinking water...and water filter systems...and are they really safe?

Chicken supposedly is ridiculously high in arsenic

My niece ( 3 ) just had her hair tested and had extremely high levels...and she only eats organic

There is also cyanide in the apple seeds

Folks I think the real question is, who monitors and regulates the uses of Arsenic.

Answer:



In which foods and beverages can arsenic be detected? The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which provides guidance for food processors in the U.S., has been tracking arsenic in foods and beverages for decades in its Total Diet Study. Through its toxic elements program FDA does additional surveillance on heavy metals such as lead and arsenic and will include increased sampling for products like juice and juice concentrate as needed.




Arsenic in drinking water may also compromise immune function


You do know that the 25 vaccines that are being injected within children from the age of 2 and up, also compromise the immune function? Sound familiar?

It seems like weakening the immune system is now a fad.

I wonder what would happen if you tested some organic fruit juice.

I wouldnt be suprised to see some amounts of Arsenic in organic apple juice.
But to be clear,.. the FDA is Only covering their buts here..
and why would we trust them,. Sodium Phosphates damage your Kidneys
and this is in many products.. But they allow that in YOUR diet.
The FDA is not interested in your health.. if they were they would shut down Monsanto.

EPA makes this claim:



How does arsenic get into my drinking water?

The major sources of arsenic in drinking water are erosion of natural deposits; runoff from orchards; and runoff from glass & electronics production wastes. A federal law called the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA) requires facilities in certain industries, which manufacture, process, or use significant amounts of toxic chemicals, to report annually on their releases of these chemicals.


I just love how they try and sneak that by. So the contaminants contributing are man made, this is no doubt.

Here is a UC Davis guidance document on Arsenic in water systems:



Arsenic Occurrence Arsenic is a naturally occurring element in the Earth’s crust. Most arsenic in drinking water comes from natural rock formations, especially those of volcanic origin. Arsenic is primarily a groundwater issue. There are no known surface water systems in the state that exceed the new arsenic MCL. The Puget Sound regional geology includes glacial and sedimentary deposits of volcanic material. Water that flows through these deposits tends to have greater concentrations of arsenic than other sources of water. As a result, sources in the Puget Sound region are more likely to exceed the new arsenic MCL than those in other parts of the state (Figure 1). Arsenic has also been deposited in the environment from copper smelting and pre-1950 pesticide applications. However, this arsenic binds strongly to soil and typically remains within the top few feet of the surface. There is no evidence that man-made sources of arsenic have affected drinking water sources in the state.


Realistically though, which third party is given access to check or study the water "filtration" process from start to finish without governmental consent or supervision. NO BODY. No body touches these water filtration systems other than government contracted officials. Therefore there is no evidence.

You don't have a clue what you are talking about, as Usual.

How do you kill an atomic element? Pasteurization? Way to not make any sense...


Pasteurization is a process of heating a food, usually liquid, to a specific temperature for a definite length of time, and then cooling it immediately. This process slows microbial growth in food.

Paseurization wiki

You know what chaps my hide?
When folks come around spreading total DISINFORMATION and / or outright LIES.

You have failed to do even the most basic of research. Your statements fall into the garbage can by default.

Do you know what "Microbes" are? Do you know what "Atomic Elements" are?
Apparently not.

Thanks for wasting my time.

This makes perfect sense.

Organic apple juices don't apply pesticides.


Organic foods are foods that are produced using methods that do not involve modern synthetic inputs such as synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers, do not contain genetically modified organisms, and are not processed using irradiation, industrial solvents, or chemical food additives.


organic food wiki

Many pesticides contain arsenic as posted earlier in the thread a few times.

This makes perfect sense.

You don't pour arsenic related pesticides on your foods, and the arsenic levels are lower. This is a direct correlation, and common sense.

Thank you for bringing it up.

I guess this is score another one for organic farmers.

If you ever decide to make a thread on Sodium Phosphate, send me a U2U with the link please.

I would gladly come over and help provide research and information. Also, during that I would be conducting research on the chemical for the first time. So I highly suggest you go for it, it will give me incentive to go look up stuff.

Not my kids. They are clean.

Also, is it any surprise that my family has not one single health issue? We are perfectly healthy, and my kids are way way ahead of all the other kids when it comes to reading (my 7 year old is reading high school science books for fun already), and they are great at math (she is also completing several algebra equations already), and I have taught my kids to question everything, even me and my "unfair rules".


I will tell you the scientific reasons why my kids are doing so well while VIRTUALLY EVERY OTHER FAMILY I KNOW has sickly kids with tons of medical problems. Oh and those other kids seem to not have a clue about reading or math either!

It is because we avoid poison. Vaccines are full of highly dangerous toxins, as the research clearly shows unequivocally. We avoid many of the processed foods, although it's impossible to avoid them all. However less contamination is less contamination, and it gives my kids the edge they need. We do not let our kids eat anything "sugar-free", because this is new-speak lingo for having additives like aspartame or similar chemicals.

Things like this make a big difference. It is why my family stands apart from the crowd. We are not obese, we do not have medical issues, and my kids are excelling in their academics.

Oh and another thing. I home school my kids. I won't allow them to go to the germ factory (school) and get brainwashed with total lies and half-truths, and I won't allow the government to touch them.

Look school just slows kids down significantly and puts the focus on "social interaction" which is utter meaningless garbage because they usually get in fights and social interaction with criminals leads to my kids becoming bad kids as well. The only reason my girl reads so proficiently and can accomplish 7th-8th grade level math is precisely because she DOESN'T go to public school.

Sorry for the rant but people need to know the scientific truth of the matter. I want them to know what works and what doesn't.

This post serves as an example of what severe contamination can do to your mental state.

Let this be a warning to anyone with a clear mind that is reading this thread.

Be warned , there are tons of false advertisements out there.

Many people put "Organic" on their produce as a lie, despite the reality that they still use many pesticides on plants or pump their livestock with hormones or what-have-you, I have seen proof that this occurs more than once.

Due to the fact we have tons of 'organic' produce being mislabeled , it becomes nearly impossible to judge what is safe or not without chemical analysis machines to test it with.

However, I would suggest that perhaps at least half of produce labeled "organic" is actually what it claims to be. There are a lot of people who cut corners though so stay vigilant.

Worst part is there are holistic food places that found out and have to fish out that crap. Buy local grown and nothing from mexico and china.
