Dangerous Additives in Food and Drinks

If you look at the labels, you will see that most commercially raised turkeys and ducks are injected with broths that contain glutamate.

The purpose of these injections is twofold: First, it makes the bird more “juicy”; and second, it enhances the taste with glutamate, a powerful amino acid.

Unfortunately, when consumed in excessive amounts, glutamate can cause overexcitation of the brain that leads to insomnia, anxiety, and what is called “forced thinking.”

Forced thinking is a condition related to anxiety. It involves a state where your mind seems to be playing on fast forward — thoughts will fly through your mind at a very rapid pace, and you will find that you cannot stop thinking in this accelerated mode.

This can be very disturbing, especially if you are trying to sleep.

Sulfites are compounds used as a preservative in food and drinks, especially wine. Sulfites from wines and other processed foods can cause the same symptoms as glutamate.

Thus, when combined with glutamate from foods, the symptoms caused by sulfites can be greatly aggravated.

While most wines contain some sulfites, the highest levels are in white wines. Organic wines may contain a small amount of naturally occurring sulfites, but unlike nonorganic wines, they do not have sulfites added.

Unfortunately, some of the best-tasting wines can be the most unhealthy. For example, California wines are considered some of the best wines in the world, but they have high amounts of fluoride, which is a powerful poison.

This fluoride comes from an insecticide that contains an aluminum-fluoride compound which is used on grapes in California.

When aluminum combines with fluoride it magnifies the toxicity. Even in small amounts, this compound can have devastating effects on the brain and other organs.

Organic wines are usually free of this insecticide, but they’re not, in general, as flavorful as nonorganically grown wines. The wines with the least fluoride content come from Europe, including French, German, and Italian vintages.

In addition, those European wines are usually grown on mountain plateaus, which means that they have higher levels of a compound called resveratrol.

The health benefits of resveratrol include:

• Inhibiting cancer development

• Correcting blood sugar imbalances

• Protecting the brain

• Inhibiting the formation of advanced glycation end-products (AGEs)

Inhibiting AGEs is especially important, as these accumulations of cellular buildup stimulate the generation of free radicals and inhibit enzyme reactions within cells.

AGEs are commonly seen in cases of diabetes, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, and degenerative diseases of the brain.
