An article in the newspaper the other day mentioned that a recent study published in a JAMA Internal Medicine report determined that frozen dinners and ultra-processed foods consumed may raise the risk of an early death because “the additives, packaging and processing of such foods  could all be factors that negatively impact our health.”

Zeroing in on the packaging phase, this actually is a huge concern especially when ready-to-eat food has been placed in plastic containers then subjected to extremely hot temperatures while in the display case! Sometimes you’ll see food which literally may have been boiling for hours in its juices inside those plastic containers until purchased. One can’t help but wonder if those plastic containers aren’t emitting dangerous chemicals directly into the boiling juices and on into the food during the entire time that  item is on display in the display case.

Any food or beverage subjected to ultra-hot plastics emitting harmful chemicals can’t be healthy for humans “In any language” as my father used to say when noticing something  awry.

If you must buy pre-packaged ready-to-eat food like a roasted chicken, for example, try to choose chicken that isn’t in a plastic container heated to such a degree that plastic chemicals are insidiously being absorbed into that chicken compromising your health. Try, of course, to choose food kept at proper temperature but is displayed either in glass or stainless steel containers until time of purchase.

Have you ever ordered breakfast at a restaurant and your toast arrives practically cremated?

Send that toast right back to the chef in the kitchen for bread that hasn’t been burned, because any B vitamins in that bread before it was “toasted” most likely have been destroyed.

The bottom line is, it’s very risky consuming any charred, carbonized foods because they definitely are carcinogenic.

Word is drug users are using public restroom baby-changing station facilities as convenient places to snort a line or two of cocaine. Proof of this has been established through random testing indicating a positive test for the presence of cocaine.

Therefore, it is important for parents to first wipe off the surface or put a blanket down before placing the child there to change its diaper.

Cocaine can be absorbed into a child’s system, potentially harming him.

Buying “Made in America” products is extremely important to our economy, but buying “Grown in America” is even more important for your health!

Decades ago, in order to protect the health and welfare of all Americans, the United States government banned the spraying of carcinogenic pesticides and fertilizers on all crops grown throughout the United States.

Elsewhere around the world, however, restrictions, regulations and controls of pesticides and fertilizers are either nonexistent or are nowhere near as strict as they are here in this country. Therefore, carcinogenic chemical fertilizers, dangerous pesticides and even human feces is still regularly being used to grow fruits and vegetables, exposing everyone consuming them to a multitude of hazardous chemicals and potential diseases. Incidentally, one thing that should be noted here is the important fact that toxins that animals ingest and toxins that plants absorb can be transferred to humans.

Since one never knows what kind of sudden serious allergic medical emergency or long lasting disease such as hepatitis may develop from ingesting dangerous pesticides and human excrement, it is safer to make it a habit of avoiding foods imported from backward thinking third-world countries whose primitive customs, which have been practiced for generations, are still in use to this very day. Furthermore, are their processing plants sanitary and free of insects?

The bottom line is: With our vast lands, we in America have every type of climate known to man. Our rich, arable soil is capable of growing everything we need. With our world-class expertise and incomparable high standards, there is no need to rely on other countries to provide our food.

Everyone wants to conserve precious water and protect the environment, but be sure to rinse hand-washed dishes and utensils thoroughly, otherwise you could ingest harmful chemical additives prevalent in various dish liquids. Doubtful? Read the labels and educate yourself as to all that they contain.

Other chemical additives, which some people prefer to use in the final rinse cycle of their dishwashers, designed to make glassware sparkle, is questionable as chemical residue remains then dries on entire dishwasher loads. The fewer chemicals you expose yourself to on a daily basis, the better your health.
