  • What is Actually in Chicken Nuggets?
    In a scathing expose of the USDA's new meat inspection program, the Washington Post quoted a representative from the meat inspectors union, who said: “pig processing lines may be moving too quickly to catch tainted meat… Tremendous amounts of fecal matter remain on the carcasses.

  • Does Caramel Color Cause Cancer?
    Used as a coloring agent in products ranging from colas and beer to gravies and soy sauce, caramel coloring may be the world's most widely consumed food coloring.

  • How Seafood Can Impact Brain Development
    In my video Fish Intake Associated With Brain Shrinkage, I discussed evidence suggesting that mercury exposure through fish intake during pregnancy may decrease the size of the newborn's brain.

  • Why Pregnant Women Should Avoid Tuna
    All fish contain small amounts of methylmercury, the most toxic form of mercury, and “fish consumption represents the main source of methylmercury exposure.” In my videos Nerves of Mercury and Fish Fog, I discuss how mercury exposure through fish consumption, even within the government's safety limits, can have adverse neurological and behavioral (...more)

  • Can One Become a Sugar Addict?
    People have chewed coca leaves for at least 8,000 years as a mild stimulant without any evidence of addiction, but when certain components are isolated and concentrated into cocaine, we've got a problem. The same may be true of sugar—people don't tend to binge on bananas. The isolation of sugar from the whole food may […] (...more)

  • Where are Phosphate Additives Found?
    In my videos Phosphate Additives in Meat Purge and Cola and Phosphate Additives in Chicken, I talked about the danger of phosphate and phosphate additives, and how phosphates are often added to chicken and turkey to help preserve the meat.
