I’m going to warn you, today’s article is not as upbeat and positive as most of mine are. In fact, I’m deeply angered by what I’m about to share with you.
I read an article this week about 10 foods that are so toxic that they are banned in other countries, yet remain 100% legal and widely used in the United States. It got me thinking about whether those in government offices can be trusted to protect us.
At the top of the hierarchy are those at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) who literally get to decide what is “safe” for us to put in our bodies and what is not. Sadly, the evidence shows that those in charge of the FDA can be bought off if the price is right. In fact, I have a client who knows this first hand.
Jim had spent the bulk of his career running a family business that packaged various food products that would later be sold in stores. One day during our session, Jim and I got to talking about how I had cancer as a teen and how I was bothered that cancer causing agents are continually used in commercial food production.
After hearing this, Jim told me a story that I’ll never forget.
If government corruption bothers you as much as it bothers me, than you’ll be glad you heard it.
Many years ago, Jim got a call from an old college buddy who had become a Ph.D. chemist. His friend told him that he discovered something that was going to make them both rich. The conversion went something like this…
“What is it?” Jim said.
“It’s a substance that is 180 times sweeter than sugar and it has zero calories..”
“Wow, that sounds amazing. What will you call it?”
“I’m going to call it Aspartame.”
“When will it be ready to package and sell?”
“Soon. We just need to finish the FDA required safety trials and then we will be ready to go.”
“OK let me know when you’re ready and let’s make it happen.”
A few years went by and Jim never heard from his friend. Then one day he got a phone call.
“So what ever happened to that stuff you said was going to make us rich??” Jim said..
“Well, we are running into a lot of problems getting through the safety trials..”
“What are the problems?”
“Well…..the rats keep dying…”
“Really?! So what are you going to do?”
“Don’t worry, we have a friend in the government that is going to help us out….”
What he meant by “help out”, was that his friend was going to appoint a new FDA director who would legalize it despite the massive evidence that it harms health, causes cancer and can literally put holes in your brain.
Upon further research, I discovered that this story was completely true and the details are even worse than you think. Below is a very thorough article on all the corruption surrounding aspartame. It even reveals who the mystery friend was. I am sure you’ve heard of him.

If one toxic substance being sold to all of us trusting consumers wasn’t bad enough, here’s an article that lists 10 more toxic foods that are sold in the United States but are actually illegal many other countries!

I don’t know about you, but this disgusts me so much that I want to warn everyone of the evil scheme.
The fact that there are people meeting in board rooms trying to come up with the next way to poison us for their own selfish gain is to me one of the most devious types of evil there is.
I’ve got good news for you though, there is one way to fight this corruption- STOP BUYING AND CONSUMING THEIR STUFF!!!
If we don’t buy it and don’t consume it, they lose and we win.
I often have clients tell me that they are envious of how disciplined I am with my diet because I eat natural, unprocessed and organic food.
I tell them that this is how I take a stand against the corruption and resist the plot to weaken and destroy my body for greedy corporate gain. I am voting with my dollars and I will not support such corruption or be the victim of their evil scheme. I pray that you won’t be one either.
Rant over. Thanks for hanging in. Have an amazing week!
