Nanoparticles in our foods are raising concerns.

Friday, February 22, 2013

Just after posting the article from the NYT about
food manipulation, there is yet another threat to
the very safety of our food. Nanoparticles are being
added to enhance flavors without consideration of
the consequences.

Follow the link to the advocacy group that is raising
funds to start testing foods and make a small donation.

This is extremely important information that we all
need to know.

    Food is foundational - on every level.

Sadly, over the last four generations, humanity has lost the ability and desire to grow it's own food - and have come to depend on the supply from the moguls.
It's all about money.
I encourage everyone I know to begin to grow something - and use their kitchens.
People look at me like I have three heads.

Loved your blog ~

    In graduate school I did theoretical research with nanoparticles. This concern is very real for me. I've had experience up close and personal and my graduate advisor is dead. Connected? Don't know ...

    Its incredible that people do not hold the knowledge about what they put into their bodies - scary - really - have you ever read any of Ty Bollinger's Books - a rude awakening - I will look into the fund Raiser ! Karen

    I'm glad someone is watching and publicizing this stuff. It seems so reasonable to be absolutely sure something is safe before adding it to our food. Yet, it's all about the profit, isn't it.
We shouldn't be forced to have private groups do the testing to discover dangerous side effects. That should be the responsibility of the company adding the ingredient to the product. Accountability should lie with the entity putting the product on the market.
