    It is true that our health crisis (due to junk food consumption) and obesity are creating the most dysfunctional people on the planet. You can see the craziness and death everywhere you look. Therefore, I'm writing this article to inform people that the promotion of unhealthy food products is being done with the complicity of the U.S. government as a means of greed and manipulation. Money hungry food manufactures are injecting addictive chemicals in your food and the government turns a blind eye to their atrocious and unconscionable behavior. The food makes you sick and when you run to the doctor because of this poisoning, you are being manipulated. Sick people are easy to control by a deceitful government. In fact, the dishonesty of the government and the food industry is criminal. If you took the time to read the ingredients on many packaged items, you will see how disease is being created in your body once you consume some of these contaminants. Let us look first at liquid junk. A perfect example are the sports drinks that many athletes consume called "Gatorade, Powerade, Propel, etc.." One of the main ingredients in some flavors of "Gatorade" and Propel is sucralose (which is chlorinated sugar, i.e. bleached sugar). This drug destroys human tissue over time and it has been reported to cause fatigue, mild stomach cramps, sudden urge to go to the bathroom, diarrhea, constipation (cramping urge but no bowel movement) irritability, sleeplessness, a strong caffeine or ginseng buzz, very tired eyes and headaches, inability to concentrate and focus, lowered motivation, anxiety (feeling overwhelmed and scared, unable to cope), mild depression, itchy skin and scalp, small sores, heightened sensitivity to noises (smallest sounds are irritating), mild physical impotence and reduction of sex drive. But olympic champions are promoting this poison even though many of them don't drink it. Vitamin water is no better! Dr. William Sears expressed his findings and wrote the following excerpt regarding "Vitamin Water.":

    "Vitamin water may not be as healthy as you think. While I don't know which brand of water you drink, I can assume that if it tastes like Jell-O to your child, it's artificially colored and/or sweetened, both of which could be harmful to your child's health. In my opinion, artificial food colorings (such as red #40) have never been proven safe for growing children. In fact, the government categorizes them as GRAS (generally regarded as safe). This translates to: "We're really not sure!" Try to restrict not only artificially sweetened beverages but those sweetened with sugar or high fructose corn syrup as well. Researchers believe these beverages are the top cause of childhood obesity in America. In addition, studies have shown that gulping down sweetened beverages can depress the body's immune system, just the opposite of what you hope to achieve from consuming vitamins.

    I'm also concerned that vitamin water may harm the teeth. Medical journals have recently published warnings about acidic beverages eroding dental enamel. Vitamin C (chemically known as asorbic acid), which is generally one of the vitamins added to vitamin water, is acidic, while plain water is not. Another safety concern is the "drug interactions" that could potentially occur among the ingredients in these so-called smart beverages. The combination of all these herbs and vitamins have, most likely, never been studied in children. We know that nature safely combines nutrients in fruits and vegetables, but we don't know the safety of combinations put together in a laboratory and then added to a bottle of water. Many nutritionists believe that vitamin water is simply a gimmick, and I tend to agree."

    I agree with the above excerpt and one promotional gimmick being used is rappers like "50 Cents" saying it's good for you. But I ask you does he have a degree in Afrikan centered nutrition? I think not. TV advertisements are destroying our children. Many of them are among some of the most malnourished humans on the planet. Drinking a water with synthetic chemicals injected in it is the last thing they need for proper development.

    There are far too many of our children suffering and dying because of these tragic dietary examples. I can go to the park and see them eating cheetos, doritos, potato chips, etc. and I can see snot running out of their noses at the same time while they are ingesting these poison chemicals. It's like watching a crack addict who is coughing and sneezing while they inject themselves. I heard one mother say that it keeps my babies quiet and a little processed food won't hurt them. How little does she know? Well, I see some clients who are children, as young as 3, suffering from epilepsy, rashes, dry skin, and other junk food born diseases because of the JUNK FOOD EPIDEMIC.

    When it comes to meat consumption, I have to tone down my criticism because I was so addicted to meat that I was ready to die by excessive meat contamination. I was laboring under the false belief that I needed animal flesh for protein but I have discovered that I've been told lie by the nutritional guidelines set up by Food Pyramid Proponents.

    Dr. Afrika has corrected this blatant flesh eating propaganda by stating:


    "Protein consumption has become an ignorance in Caucasian science. It is commonly felt that in order to build human muscle (and protein) one must eat lean animal flesh muscle (protein). This is clearly not the case. The protein requirement was established by evaluating an upper middle class group of Caucasians that ate a junk food diet. However, normal protein levels in other diets are different. The vegetarian, lacto-ova vegetarian, vegan and fruitarian have protein levels which are optimum at low levels. Vegetarians eat high amounts of raw chlorophyll. Chlorophyll stabilizes protein; thus vegetarians require less proteins. Carbohydrates build proteins and can also reduce protein requirements. Eating meat increases cellular destruction, raises the blood acid level, and therefore increases protein requirements."

    Source: "Afrikan Holistic Health" Revised and Expanded Edition by Dr. Llaila O. Afrika, pg. 187


    Since I consume mostly raw fruits and vegetables now, I can feel the difference and recognize the veracity of the above paragraph. This is my greatest year so far and with each day I'm getting better. This topic is too important to end now so I will add more information to it later. Thus far, I haven't even scratched the surface because I haven't informed my readers about aspartame, which is a GREAT DEATH THREAT to people of this world.

    Stay tuned!

    A subject dear to my heart.

    I personally believe that Aspartame will kill more people than all the junk food and toxic drugs combined and this belief is derived from the fact that it is in practically every thing the West consume.

    From chewing gum;
    “Aspartame in chewing gum is absorbed directly though the buccal mucosa of the tongue, mouth, and gums, making it a far worse poisoning than even if it were given intravenously. The nerves serving this area and their vascular supply derive directly from the brain, so the Aspartame absorbed through them goes directly into the brain, by passing the spinal cord and blood brain barrier.”

    to household products – in total 9000 products (that we know and that includes childrens medicine).

    Did you know?
    Surgeons operating upon Aspartame brain tumors often note a WHITE PLASTIC being formed throughout those Aspartame afflicted brains!

    I'm glad this thread was started, because I really need some pointers on how to "get off the junk food."

    I forgot to add this link.
    http://video.google.com/videosearch?q=Esoteric+Agenda&sitesearch=#

    Amongst other things, the video covers:
    • The agenda to reduce the world’s population to 500million using;
    • Monsato bovine growth hormone – all cows
    • Sub clinical antibiotics – all animals
    • Exogenous growth hormones – all animals
    • Public water – arsenic, lead, cadmium and thurmonium
    • Aspartame – a toxic poison found in all soft drinks and over 9000 household products
    • Fluoride – how this is used to keep the masses ‘asleep’
    • Codex alimentarius to come into effect in Dec 31st 2009

    @Jahari Kavi

    What junk food are you addicted to?

    I was addicted to junk food at one point, so will share my experiences on overcoming these addictions.

    I reasearched and found suitable alternatives. For example, I replaced white sugar with brown sugar/organic honey. Any aspartame laced drinks that I was consuming were replaced with different types herbal tea.

    I cut out meat, chicken and eggs, only because of the genetically modified, antiboitic based diet these animals are fed. If I crave meat, I will pay extra and go to a farmer’s market that does not do commercial farming.

    I experimented by combining wholesome food with junk food. For example, brown rice is bland on its own, but fried brown rice with mixed vegetables and spices is tastey!

    Actually, brown rice by itself, is as close as you will get to a balanced meal. (Combine it with beans or some other form of legumes and you will get your recommended intake of protein.)

    Hope this helps,
    Peace

    thank you. I cut out meat from my diet, except for fish (which I need to start buying from organic food stores) for the reasons you listed. But I have a hard time with snacking on salty chips and sweets. I've heard that drinking water curves the appetite, but I still have a problem with it.....

    Codex Alimentarius

    Greetings I was introduced to this site several years ago by Professor Ssali (Mariandina). I used to speak with him often, he advised of the 'chemicals' that are going into foods. There was a point where they were even going to put 'restrictions' on 'camomile' in its natural state for it has healing properties....

    Anyways, here's the link

    People are more concerned with pleasure than health..which is why people like junk food..but you still have the choice not to intake the junk food regardless of the commercials and adverisment.. in todays day and age people are more concerned with pleasure seeking and convience which is why things are the way they are in the world..and america has more obese people because they are able to afford the lifestyle they want to live and indulge in different things easier than some people in other places

    Junk food always maked me feel depressed or embalmed. I feel alive when I eat food that is fresh and living. Also I feel more connected to Energy when I eat healthier. Does that mean I never eat junk food? No. Can't escape it in this world, but I regularly fast and detox it out of my system when it does get in.

    Peace
