I did some research on an individual by the name Dr. Joel D. Wallach. Dr. Wallach has a line of products available to help you (and your pet, AND your garden) be more healthy. Throughout his website - http://www.majesticearth-minerals.com
- there are products in pill form, liquid form, and powder form designed to provide supplement, nutrient, and - what I would describe as - warm fuzzy feelings of genuine psychological babble laced with spiritual enlightenment.
Basically, Doc's offerin' some flavored juju. Want some?
I am including some ingredient lists of various products in picture form. (See below.) Some of these ingredients are excitotoxins.
These are examples of those ingredients which are excitotoxins:Natural Flavors, Potassium Aspartate, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid, Grape Seed Extract, Maltodextrin, Xanthan Gum, CitriSweet® (which contains inulin, fructose, citric peel extract), Stevia, Natural Flavors Blend....
I figure there are more excitotoxic ingredients in these products, though I didn't look at every list of ingredients. I do know, it didn't take much looking to find the hand full of excitotoxins I listed above. For example, I didn't do any research on the products for gardens. I figure it has Monsanto (or a subsidiary) written all over it, though.
If you do your own research, then hopefully you'll understand the dangers of the more heavily used flavor enhancers, a.k.a excitotoxins, and discover new ones which seem to be invented daily.
Product Analysis:Nature's Whey... Slender Meal Replacement Shake...
For Weight LossDESCRIPTION
... Whey is the purest, richest, most complete and bio-available protein source known to man. Slender Meal Replacement Shake contains pure whey protein, soy protein and various vitamins and minerals as co-factors.
Okay, let's stop right there. "Purest, Richest, Most Complete" is fluff. It's double-speak. It's empty words. "Pure" is another fluffy word.Reality...
In order to produce "whey protein" or "soy protein", whey or soy is put through a process called hydrolysis
. This breaks the bound, the molecular structure of the plant, thus freeing glutamic acid. Once this is done, the proteins are isolated and used in foods to chemically enhance the flavor without using Monosodium Glutamate. (Note: Since MSG has turned into a negative buzz word, the food and medical industry have found substitutes to use just as harmful or more so than MSG.) In this new form, these chemically derived ingredients are more potent than MSG alone. Because of their potency, when they are combined with other similar ingredients, the final product is so contaminated with free glutamic acid, it's like having an excitotoxin cocktail.
Product Analysis:Kid's Toddy
(A picture of this product is provided below.)DESCRIPTION...
Kid's Toddy provides your growing child with a full spectrum of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids and phytonutrients. Specifically formulated for children ages 2-12. Kid's Toddy provides the essential nutrients to support their development.
...Farther down the description...
Certain vitamins and minerals are essential in a child's development. These nutrients include the vitamins A, C, D, E, and the B-Complex, as well as the minerals calcium, potassium, and zinc. Phytonutrients are the extracts from fruits and vegetables and additionally support a child's growing development.Phytonutrients are fruit and vegetable extracts.
In order to create an extract, it has to by autolyzed. Just another way to feed the public excitotoxins, and what better way than to start them early.
These products are just one example of the thousands of other companies/individuals out there trying to rake in the money. If these and other products do
cause problems, the medical industry will be more than happy to help alleviate your symptoms by prescribing medicines and treatments.
Question: Why not eliminate the cause?
Answer: Too costly. It would slow commerce down to a trickle, at best. As it stands right now, excitotoxins are a business. Excitotoxins are adding fuel to the world's economy. They are a quick buck... or rather a quick multimillion dollar industry which is going to be pursued by everyone who has an itchy palm. (An expression used for someone about to come into money - for those who don't know.)
Solution: Keep avoid excitotoxins and keep familiarizing yourself with their new names.
Keep up the good fight!!!
