Default Poison In The Food: How the Hungry Lion Eats Us

We all are victims of it, men and women, old and young alike.
The"Hungry Lion" makes us eat what's most profitable for him. We enter
the supermarket isles and we are overwhelmed by unnecessary products,
laced with unnecessary ingredients. And hydrogenated oils is just the
beginning...

Well, we remain hopeful we can tame the beast and make him eat banana,
just as the good vegetarian lions should.

First the poison food, then the story of the Hungry Lion, and finally a
solution...

Poison In The Food: Hydrogenated Oils

The truth about hydrogenated oils and our nation's disease epidemics

I'm about to share with you a true story about how the world's
population is being poisoned by an ingredient that is intentionally
added to our food supply. I'm going to share with you details of how
the World Health Organization implored nations to outlaw this
ingredient in 1977, but the food companies continued to lobby for
keeping the ingredient legal because it was convenient for them and
boosted their profits, never mind that it was wreaking havoc on the
health of consumers. What kind of havoc? - Cancer, heart disease,
lowbirth- weight infants, malformed brains and nervous systems in
fetuses and infants, infertility in men and women, breast cancer,
prostate cancer, weight gain, type 2 diabetes, rotting teeth and gums.
I'm going to name a lot more right here in this program.

I'm talking about hydrogenated oils. Hydrogenated oils are poisons, in
the sense that they were never intended for human consumption. They
don't exist in nature. They're not found in any natural, raw,
unprocessed foods at all. In fact, there is no nutritional requirement
whatsoever in the human body for hydrogenated oils, or for trans-fatty
acids which are produced as a side effect of the hydrogenation process.
But what's really amazing about this story is not all the damage that
this ingredient causes, nor all of the diseases that it has promoted,
nor the direct correlation between the skyrocketing rates of diseases
and the increasing consumption of foods containing these hydrogenated
oils. The real story here is about how our lawmakers and our so-called
"health leaders" have refused to outlaw this ingredient, even though
they are fully aware of the dangers that it poses to human health.
There has been no real attempt out there to protect consumers from this
toxic, even deadly, ingredient. As usual, it's all about big business.
The government organizations out there that are supposed to be
protecting consumers have once again ended up protecting the big food
giants. Those huge manufacturing companies that have big lobbies in
Washington seem to run everything that happens there these days. This
ingredient remains legal, even while it is killing people in the United
States and all around the world.

I bet you know a character like this lion...

THE LAW OF THE JUNGLE
Once upon a time, in the deep jungle, lived a Lion and a Monkey... One
day the Monkey, tired of the Lion always taking the LION'S SHARE, and
seeing that such injustice represented a danger to all, demanded
JUSTICE... The Lion, yawning and stretching, said, "You would have to
have paws and sharp teeth..." Then the Monkey, who was very clever,
devised a plan: He would go to the costume store, and look like a
lion...

When the HUNGRY LION saw him, noticing that the new lion wasn't a match
for him, and fearing COMPETITION, killed him on the spot --before the
indifferent look of the little animals of the jungle... And that's how
the Law of the Jungle was re-established one more time... (NOTE: Other
monkeys survived him...)

***

But to tell you the truth, this monkey wasn't very clever in dressing
like a lion. The real smart monkey knows better and would do this...

(Based on the slogan:
MAKE LOVE, NOT WAR?
"Make love, not war," was not just a protest against the indifference
and lack of humaneness in Vietnam; it was also a positive statement
that love between parent and child, teacher and pupil, fiance and
fiancee, and husband and wife is an activity we should try to pursue in
the house when work is not necessary. It is the one real source of
truth, beauty, and salvation in a community where deceit, corruption,
and impersonality seem to be rampant. -Jerome Kagan)

The smart monkey shows his cleverness...

And what better way to make love than to give the banana to the roaring
lion? The monkey knows that the lion is more powerful than him, and
knows he better use his own weapons, so he decides to be funny, that
being his natural gift. The story goes like this: The lion roars:
"Monkey, I'm made to eat meat, so you better come down right
now." And the monkey replies very cool: "Mighty King, that's
doubtful as the Bible says you were vegetarian, so you can eat my
banana..." (T-shirts with the slogan "You Can Eat My Banana"
available now!)

Funny thing is: Avoiding hydrogenated oils is the latest *official* health
advice here in the UK - so that makes your sarcastic remark pretty
pathetic!!

Google "hydrogenated oils" . There's plenty more.

Default Poison In The Food: Preying on Children

Yet children are falling prey to the junk food hungry predator...

"Junk food marketers spent an estimated $15 billion in 2002 on
marketing aimed at children."

I guess the lion is a master of deceit. Well, camouflage is a way of
life in the jungle.

Four Ways Junk Food Marketing Targets Your Kids

By Dr. Joseph Mercola
with Rachael Droege

You walk through the grocery store, planning to buy only the few items
on your list. You have just about made it down the first aisle when
your young child begins to beg for junk food item #1, green catsup. You
give in hoping it will make the rest of the trip easier, when just as
you turn the corner your child begins begging for another junk food
item, this time sugary cereal. Sound familiar?

Well, there's a reason why your kids want just about every sugary,
greasy, processed food that they can get their hands on. Since the day
your child was exposed to the outside world, through TV, magazines, the
radio--even school--they have been inundated with the persuasive
messages of the junk food industry. According to the National Institute
on Media and the Family, advertisements target children as young as 3
years old. As an adult it can be hard enough to resist these marketing
ploys, but for a child to resist is almost unthinkable.

Junk food marketers spent an estimated $15 billion in 2002 on marketing
aimed at children. They seek to push their low-nutrient foods into the
heads of children so that they in turn pester their parents to buy the
products. And their ploys appear to be working as one out of every four
American children are now seriously overweight or at risk of becoming
overweight.

Of course, the ultimate decision of whether to purchase junk food is up
to you, the parent, but becoming aware of some of the most obtrusive
methods junk food marketers use can help you to protect your children
from these unhealthy messages.

Athletes/Celebrities

You may have seen Pepsi's Web site, which features pop-singer Beyonce
and Cubs baseball player Sammy Sosa. Beyonce is quoted as saying "For
me, to build a relationship with Pepsi is incredible," while the site
says about Sosa, " For the past three seasons, Slammin' Sammy has
been powered by Pepsi."

This is just one example of a company using celebrities and athletes to
promote a less-than-nutritious product. Pepsi is certainly not the only
company to do so. Snickers brand candy bar has a TV commercial that
takes place in the Chicago Bears locker room and Kellogg's Frosted
Flakes cereal is touted as "The official cereal of the National Hockey
League (NHL).

Many children see celebrities and athletes as role models and feel that
the products they endorse are worthwhile. They listen to these messages
because they like the messengers. Unfortunately, the underlying message
to kids--aside from the more obvious "buy this product"--is that eating
these products can make them a celebrity or athlete, or at least will
make them look and perform like one. And even if that doesn't happen,
they still feel that the products are worthwhile since they're
popular among the people they look up to and respect.

Saturday Morning Commercials

Saturday morning cartoons are a tradition for many children. Not
surprisingly, junk food marketers have claimed their space among the
cartoons--90 percent of food commercials aired on Saturday morning
kids' TV shows are for products of low nutritional value such as sugary
cereals, candy and fast food.

As though placing the ads among children's cartoons is not enough,
many of the junk foods will even feature a cartoon character or cartoon
theme as part of their packaging and promotional angle.

By the time you head to the grocery store that afternoon, your
child's mind will be thoroughly saturated with junk food items to
persuade you to buy. Of course this is the time when you as the parent
can be strong and only buy foods that you will feel good about your
child eating.

School Vending Machines

You may send your child to school with a healthy lunch in hand, but
your efforts may soon be sabotaged by junk food marketers where you
least expect them--in your child's school. Most school hallways are
lined with vending machines that sell soft drinks and unhealthy snacks,
and most school cafeterias serve any number of fast foods each day.
It's not uncommon for schools to make marketing deals with leading
soft drink companies such as Coca-Cola from which they receive
commissions--based on a percentage of sales at each school--and
sometimes a lump-sum payment.

The revenues are used for various academic and after-school activities,
but what activity could be worth devastating the students' health,
which is exactly what consuming all that soda and junk food is doing?
Getting rid of vending machines in schools--or replacing their contents
with pure water and healthy snacks--could make a big difference, as
vending machines can increase the consumption of sweetened beverages by
up to 50 or more cans of soda per student per year.

The Internet

More and more children have access to the Internet, which means that
marketers have gained another avenue to market their products. Almost
every major junk food, from snacks to candy to soft drinks, has its own
promotional Web site. The sites typically cater to children and
teenagers and are filled with interactive games featuring the product,
giveaways, contests and other information about the product.

Kids are likely to be drawn in by the games and are subtly inundated
with images of a particular junk food or junk food brand. Although they
may think they are simply playing a game, the games typically have a
junk-food theme that exposes them to nutritionally devoid products even
during their time off.

Although you can't realistically shelter your child from every
advertisement out there, you can sit down with them and discuss the ads
you do see. Explain to them that a business is selling the product and
that they need to think about all aspects of the item (nutritional
value, price, etc.) and not rely solely on the ad to make their
decision. And, make sure that you are a good role model for you child.
If you eat a lot of junk food, you'll have a hard time convincing
your child that they shouldn't eat it.

I found out last night that rats ate my banana, so I asume that the
lion sharing with the rat its predation would turn to banana if it need
be. Doctor Livingstone should have carried a bunch of bananas to
appease the beast.

Notice here that the lion is a vegetarian...

"The lion was offered hay to eat. These were powerful and intense
images.

The Peaceable Kingdom paintings portray a delicate balance of difficult
and unresolved issues. The lion-ego poses the greatest threat. The wild
animals are seemingly domesticated and brought into line with loving
kindness. However, their expression of pop-eyed puzzlement is not lost
on any viewer. For the moment, they are behaving themselves, eating
bovine food and not the little lambs."
