Before you read this article, be warned: you may never want to eat again.
You probably already know that our food supply is contaminated. But did you know that the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) allows a certain amount of rat excrement, insect heads and maggots in the food supply, along with a number of other contaminants?
The FDA published a pamphlet, “Levels of Natural or Unavoidable Defects in Foods That Present No Health Hazards to Humans,” instructing food producers as to what is allowable. They claim that “defect levels do not represent an average of the defects that occur in any of the products — the averages are actually much lower.” Examples of what is allowed under these “regulations,” would include: five fly eggs per 250 ml or one or more maggots per 250 ml in canned orange juice; 30 fly eggs per 100 grams in tomato paste, pizza and other sauces; nine milligrams or more of rodent excreta pellets per kilogram in wheat; and an average mold count of 15 percent in cranberry sauce. How does the FDA consider this acceptable? Aren’t they supposed to be looking out for the interests of the consumer by aiming for purity in the food supply?
