FAKE FOOD C. Norman Shealy, M.D, Ph.D.
Once upon a time, food came only from natural plants or animals. Ten thousand years ago, around the end of the last Ice Age, farming began. Then a few thousand years ago the first bastardization of food began with the extraction of sugar from sugar cane. That appears to have been the first ARTIFICIAL food. Next, about 400 years ago rice became the next artificial food when it was polished, removing most of its real nutritional value! Next came "white" flour, at least as artificial as sugar, as it not only has had all the real nutritional value taken out, it has even been BLEACHED , partially "enriched", an oxymoron indeed, for about 200 years with a few minor additions of part of the nutrients artificially reinserted. All this began before the Frankenstein genetically modified trend!
The real Mafioso prostitution attack on food revved into high gear in the 20the century, with even further pollution of wheat, with additions of plainly artificial materials similar to the plastics used in yoga mats http://www.ewg.org/research/nearly-500-ways-make-yoga-mat-sandwich or
And of course artificial fats began to replace natural ones with the same plastics approach of "artificial hydrogenation" into trans-fats, incapable of being metabolized and major contributors to atherosclerosis. Margarine and solid vegetable SHORTENINGS (short indeed on value and long on harm) followed. At least 99% of all commercial peanut butter is contaminated with this crap.
Monosodium Glutamate, MSG <often hidden behind other chemical names. See below>, an addicting, brain-damaging and fattening agent became the "flavor enhancer" of choice. And eventually even more artificial, totally non-natural chemical poisons began to replace even sugar, with aspartame, Splenda®, etc and the unreal fats such as Olestra®. All guaranteed to help make you fatter!
Even "table salt" often contains such additives as sodium ferro-cyanide and aluminum, among other toxins! AND DON'T IGNORE PINK SLIME!
Add it all together and it is easy to see that about 80% of everything sold as food today is FAKE, UNREAL. ARTIFICIAL and UNHEALTHY! The food industry is a least as evil as the tobacco industry and the PharmacoMafia.
And don't forget the unbelievable stupidity of adding antibiotics to animal feed to make them fatter!
There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true. Soren Kierkegaard ( 1813 - 1855 )
Find and eat only real food.

Sneaky Names for MSG: Read Your Labels (http://www.elephantjournal.com/2013/04/sneaky-names-for-msg-check-your-labels/) > Glutamic Acid (E 620)2
> Glutamate (E 620)
> Monosodium Glutamate (E 621)
> Monopotassium Glutamate (E 622)
> Calcium Glutamate (E 623)
> Monoammonium Glutamate (E 624)
> Magnesium Glutamate (E 625)
> Natrium Glutamate
> Yeast Extract
> Anything “hydrolyzed”
> Any “hydrolyzed protein”
> Calcium Caseinate
> Sodium Caseinate
> Yeast Food
> Yeast Nutrient
> Autolyzed Yeast
> Textured Protein
> Soy Protein
> Soy Protein Concentrate
> Soy Protein Isolate
> Whey Protein, Whey Protein Concentrate, Whey Protein Isolate
> Anything “…protein”
> Ajinomoto Names of ingredients that often contain or produce processed free glutamic acid (7): > Carrageenan (E 407)
> Bouillon and broth
> Any “flavors” or “flavoring”
> Citric acid, Citrate (E 330)
> Anything “ultra-pasteurized”
> Barley malt
> Pectin (E 440)
> Anything “enzyme modified”
> Anything containing “enzymes”
> Malt extract
> Soy sauce
> Soy sauce extract
> Anything “protein fortified”
> Anything “fermented”
> Seasonings Glutamic acid found in unadulterated “whole food” protein does not cause adverse reactions. To cause adverse reactions, the glutamic acid must have been processed/manufactured or come from protein that has been fermented (1).
The following are ingredients suspected of containing or creating sufficient processed free glutamic acid to serve as MSG-reaction triggers in highly sensitive people (7): > Corn starch
> Corn syrup
> Modified food starch
> Lipolyzed butter fat
> Rice syrup
> Brown rice syrup
> Milk powder
> Reduced fat milk (skim; 1%; 2%)
> Most things labeled “Low Fat” or “No Fat”
> Anything labeled “Enriched”
> Anything labeled “Vitamin Enriched” Unfortunately, many protein powders contain processed free glutamic acid.
Protein Powders: Be Selective Unfortunately, many protein powders contain forms of soy and whey protein, as listed above, that will always contain processed free glutamic acid. Since free glutamic acids are a product of processing proteins, it can be tricky to find a protein powder that does not potentially contain them. The key is the amount or concentration of these glutamates in each product, as well as gauging your own personal level of sensitivity and ability to break them down, that becomes the issue.
Don’t Stress—Just Eat Whole Foods! A list so long can be overwhelming, and can provoke the feeling of, “What is there left to eat?” When trying to avoid MSG, the main focus should be on a diet of whole, unprocessed foods including vegetables, grains, legumes, fruits, nuts and seeds, organic and grass-fed meats and organic dairy.
Make sure your proteins are clean, preferably organic and grass-fed and cook them at home or enjoy them at a restaurant whose practices you support, rather than eating excess processed foods.
After looking at the above list a few times, you’ll get the hang of which kind of ingredient names connote MSG and easily avoid them.
As Jack Lalanne advised, “Don’t eat anything with a wrapper!” And if you can’t do that, try to avoid processed foods with more than five whole-food ingredients.
