10 American Foods That Are Banned in Other Countries - Alternative News Network


American Foods 


Let’s look at ten of the most commonly sold American foods banned elsewhere.
1. Arsenic-Laced Chicken
Arsenic-based drugs are approved for use in animal feed in the US because they make animals grow quicker and make the meat appear pinker (i.e. “fresher”). The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has stated these products are safe because they contain organic arsenic, which is less toxic than the other inorganic form, which is a known carcinogen.
The problem is, scientific reports surfaced stating that the organic arsenic could transform into inorganic arsenic, which has been found in elevated levels in supermarket chickens. The inorganic arsenic also contaminates manure where it can eventually migrate into drinking water and may also be causing heightened arsenic levels in US rice.
In 2011, Pfizer announced it would voluntarily stop marketing its arsenic-based feed additive Roxarsone, but there are still several others on the market. Several environmental groups have filed a lawsuit against the FDA calling for their removal from the market. In the European Union, meanwhile, arsenic-based compounds have never been approved as safe for animal feed.
Where it’s banned: The European Union
2. Bread with Potassium Bromate
You might not be aware of this, but nearly every time you eat bread in a restaurant or consume a hamburger or hotn dog bun you are consuming bromide, as it is commonly used in flours. The use of potassium bromate as an additive to commercial breads and baked goods has been a huge contributor to bromide overload in Western cultures.
Bromated flour is ‘enriched’ with potassium bromate. Commercial baking companies claim it makes the dough more elastic and better able to stand up to bread hooks. However, Pepperidge Farm and other successful companies manage to use only unbromated flour without any of these so-called ‘structural problems.’ Studies have linked potassium bromate to kidney and nervous system damage, thyroid problems, gastrointestinal discomfort, and cancer. The International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies potassium bromate as a possible carcinogen.
Where it’s banned: Canada, China and the EU
3. Farm-Raised Salmon
If you want to maximize health benefits from fish, you want to steer clear of farmed fish, particularly farmed salmon fed dangerous chemicals. Wild salmon gets its bright pinkish-red color from natural carotenoids in their diet. Farmed salmon, on the other hand, are raised on a wholly unnatural diet of grains (including genetically engineered varieties), plus a concoction of antibiotics and other drugs and chemicals not shown to be safe for humans.
This diet leaves the fish with unappetizing grayish flesh so to compensate, they’re fed synthetic astaxanthin made from petrochemicals, which has not been approved for human consumption and has well known toxicities. Some studies suggest it can potentially damage your eyesight.
Where it’s banned: Australia and New Zealand
4. Flame Retardant Drinks
If you live in the US and drink Mountain Dew and some other citrus-flavored sodas and sports drinks, then you are also getting a dose of a synthetic chemical called brominated vegetable oil (BVO), which was originally patented by chemical companies as a flame retardant.
BVO has been shown to bioaccumulate in human tissue and breast milk, and animal studies have found it causes reproductive and behavioral problems in large doses. Bromine is a central nervous system depressant, and a common endocrine disruptor. It’s part of the halide family, a group of elements that includes fluorine, chlorine and iodine. When ingested, bromine competes for the same receptors that are used to capture iodine. This can lead to iodine deficiency, which can have a very detrimental impact on your health. Bromine toxicity can manifest as skin rashes, acne, loss of appetite, fatigue, and cardiac arrhythmias.
Where it’s banned: Europe and Japan
5. Genetically Engineered Papaya
Most Hawaiian papaya is now genetically engineered to be resistant to ringspot virus. Mounting research now shows that animals fed genetically engineered foods, such as corn and soy, suffer a wide range of maladies, including intestinal damage, multiple-organ damage, massive tumors, birth defects, premature death, and near complete sterility by the third generation of offspring. Unfortunately, the gigantic human lab experiment is only about 10 years old, so we are likely decades away from tabulating the human casualties.
Where it’s banned: The European Union
6. Milk and Dairy Products Laced with rBGH
Recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH) is the largest selling dairy animal drug in America. RBGH is a synthetic version of natural bovine somatotropin (BST), a hormone produced in cows’ pituitary glands. Monsanto developed the recombinant version from genetically engineered E. coli bacteria and markets it under the brand name “Posilac.”
It’s injected into cows to increase milk production, but it is banned in at least 30 other nations because of its dangers to human health, which include an increased risk for colorectal, prostate, and breast cancer by promoting conversion of normal tissue cells into cancerous ones. Non-organic dairy farms frequently have rBGH-injected cows that suffer at least 16 different adverse health conditions, including very high rates of mastitis that contaminate milk with pus and antibiotics.
Where it’s banned: Australia, New Zealand, Israel, EU and Canada
7. Olestra/Olean
Olestra, aka Olean, created by Procter & Gamble, is a calorie- and cholesterol-free fat substitute used in fat-free snacks like chips and French fries. Three years ago, Time Magazine3 named it one of the worst 50 inventions ever, but that hasn’t stopped food companies from using it to satisfy people’s mistaken belief that a fat-free snack is a healthier snack.
Where it’s banned: The UK and Canada
8. Preservatives BHA and BHT
BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole) and BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene) are commonly used preservatives that can be found in breakfast cereal, nut mixes, chewing gum, butter spread, meat, dehydrated potatoes, and beer, just to name a few. BHA is known to cause cancer in rats, and may be a cancer-causing agent in humans as well. In fact, according to the US Department of Health and Human Services, National Toxicology Program’s 2011 Report on Carcinogens, BHA “is reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen.” It may also trigger allergic reactions and hyperactivity, while BHT can cause organ system toxicity.
Where it’s banned: The UK doesn’t allow BHA in infant foods. BHA and BHT are also banned in parts of the European Union and Japan.
9. Processed Foods Containing Artificial Food Colors and Dyes
More than 3,000 food additives — preservatives, flavorings, colors and other ingredients — are added to US foods, including infant foods and foods targeted to young children. Meanwhile, many of these are banned in other countries, based on research showing toxicity and hazardous health effects, especially with respect to adverse effects on children’s behavior.
In countries where these food colors and dyes are banned, food companies like Kraft employ natural colorants instead, such as paprika extract, beetroot, and annatto. The food blogger and activist Vani Hari, better known as “Food Babe,” recently launched a Change.org petition asking Kraft to remove artificial dyes from American Mac ” Cheese to protect American children from the well-known dangers of these dyes.
Where it’s banned: Norway and Austria. In 2009, the British government advised companies to stop using food dyes by the end of that year. The European Union also requires a warning notice on most foods containing dyes.
10. Ractopamine-Tainted Meat
The beta agonist drug ractopamine (a repartitioning agent that increases protein synthesis) was recruited for livestock use when researchers found that the drug, used in asthma, made mice more muscular. This reduces the overall fat content of the meat. Ractopamine is currently used in about 45 percent of US pigs, 30 percent of ration-fed cattle, and an unknown percentage of turkeys are pumped full of this drug in the days leading up to slaughter. Up to 20 percent of ractopamine remains in the meat you buy from the supermarket, according to veterinarian Michael W. Fox.
Since 1998, more than 1,700 people have been “poisoned” from eating pigs fed the drug, and ractopamine is banned from use in food animals in no less than 160 different countries due to its harmful health effects! Effective February 11, 2013, Russia issued a ban on US meat imports, slated to last until the US agrees to certify that the meat is ractopamine-free. At present, the US does not even test for the presence of this drug in meats sold. In animals, ractopamine is linked to reductions in reproductive function, increase of mastitis in dairy herds, and increased death and disability. It’s also known to affect the human cardiovascular system, and is thought to be responsible for hyperactivity, and may cause chromosomal abnormalities and behavioral changes.
Where it’s banned: 160 countries across Europe, Russia, mainland China and Republic of China (Taiwan)
Of course, you can take control of your health – do your research, and eat foods that you know you can trust. It really is that simple!

5 Years Ago Today, the US Helped Murder Gaddafi to Stop the Creation of Gold-Backed Currency

5 Years Ago Today, the US Helped Murder Gaddafi to Stop the Creation of Gold-Backed Currency

Strange But True: U.S. Supreme Court Ruled Income Tax Is Unlawful

New Proposed Law Too Ridiculous to Believe!

New Proposed Law Too Ridiculous to Believe!

Its official, Congress again has created a bill that shows all of Congress are thy most dumbest, brainless, group of people ever known to man. Congress has created S.B. 1241 called Combating Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, and Counterfeiting Act of 2017 to include all the illegal activities into one bill. In an effort to stop the Drug Wars, Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, Counterfeiting. All of which the U.S. Government is guilty of and still today continue the illegal activities.

Let me see if I understand this correctly. The U.S. Congress has created a law "The War on Drugs" (trying to stop drugs entering the U.S.)  states Americans can not engage in Drug Trafficking. While at the same time, the U.S. Government has our military troops protecting the stolen poppy fields in Afghanistan. Just so our U.S. Government aka Heroin Cartel can produce OxyContin and Heroin to transport it to the U.S. to sell.                  

                                       

Don't forget our U.S. Government FBI and CIA continue to transport Cocaine to the U.S. from
Nicaragua, Columbia. Then transport the Cocaine to U.S. hoping our military plane does not crash like the CIA plane did in 2012 over Yucatan, Mexico with 3.7 tonnes of Cocaine. Don't worry U.S. Government said the plane was only carrying prisoners. So Americans can't deal drugs, but U.S. Government can. They hate competition.


Next we have Money laundering. This Bill gives the U.S. Government power to monitor every single money transaction by Americans in the world. If you have Gold, Money Accounts, Safety deposit Box in other countries, and fail to fill out a government form or fail to tell the government about them, the penalties if convicted on conspiracy to commit or convicted of not filling out form offense shall be imprisoned for up to 10 years or fined one million dollars or both. 5 years just if you fail to fill out forms. 

Image result for bitcoins

The best part is the Government added Crypto currency.  As you know Bitcoin amounts are pre-determined by it's code. It's a software. It's not real. Congress is trying to force a software to comply with money laundering laws. If you leave the U.S. with thousands of bitcoins in a account (Fake Money) and fail to fill out a form, you go to prison. YES... you now can go to prison for having fake money which has no value. LAUGHING MY FUCKEN ASS OFF. 

Next we have Terrorist Financing. Americans can not fund or create a terror group. But the U.S. Government continues to create terror groups and fund them with unlimited amounts of money and weapons. Like Al-Qaeda and ISIS. Don't forget Obama sold weapons to Mexico's drug cartel. Which later a weapon was used to kill a Boarder Patrol Agent. Don't you just love U.S. Government.

The bottom line is The U.S. Government hates competition. If  the U.S. Gov. is involved in it. They do not want you to make a cent before them.
