Cupric Sulfate: What’s In Your Baby Formula? Why Is Pesticide An Ingredient?

Published

on

babyThe human race is right in the midst of a worldwide global awakening, and our food industry is a large part of it. As we move forward, our food sector has become increasingly transparent. From Monsanto, to pesticides and genetically modified organisms (GMOs), a large amount of evidence has surfaced to show us that some ingredients we are ingesting into our body’s can be harmful and hazardous. It is completely unnatural and is something that the human body doesn’t require nor benefits from. If you’re looking for evidence, we provide a multitude of it. Feel free to browse through our health, science/tech, multimedia, and alternative news sections for more information on GMOs, Monsanto, and pesticides. We provide sources and links to studies at the bottom of each article. You can even use the search bar.

What about infant formula? Why is Cupric Sulfate in infant formula? Cupric Sulfate is classified as harmful, irritant and dangerous for the environment. It’s used as a herbicide, fungicide and pesticide. It’s also known as Copper sulfate, and it’s produced industrially by treating copper metal with hot concentrated sulfuric acid. Cupric sulfate is not even hidden, it’s displayed on product labels without any type of warning or information about it. It’s there for us to see, we just never question it, look it up and bring it to the attention of the masses.

It’s used to kill fungus, aquatic plants and roots of plants, parasitic infections in aquarium fish, it hardly sounds fit for human consumption, and these are infants we are talking about.

If we assess formula by its results, rather than by whether its ingredients matched a specific list, we would have to conclude that there has never been an infant formula that would “satisfy,” by itself, the nutritional requirements of infants during the first months of life (1).

NPIC report on Cupric Sulfate (read full report HERE (2))

Humans:

  • A group of 179 adults from Ireland, Chile, and the U.S. were exposed once weekly to a solution of copper sulfate for 5 weeks. Acute LOAEL and NOAEL were determined at 6 and 4 mg Cu/L. Nausea within 15 minutes after exposure was the most common observed effect. Vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain were also reported. These results were confirmed in two additional independent experiments involving a total of 1634 people from around the world.
  • Researchers administered copper sulfate dissolved in tap water at doeses of 0, 1, 3, and 5 mg Cu/L for 2 weeks to groups of 15 healthy adult women. Subjects drank an average of 1.64 L per day. Reported symptoms include nausea, abdominal pain, and vomiting at exposure > 3 mg Cu/L.
  • “Vineyard sprayer’s lung” is a condition reported after chronic inhalation of Bordeaux mixture by agricultural workers who may be exposed seasonally. It is characterized by particular lung tissue changes including lesions, blue coloration, scarring and nodules. Symptoms include lesions, blue

Animals:

  • Twelve rabbits inhaled sprayed Bordeaux mixture for 10 minutes, 3 times daily for 4 months. The concentration was increased gradually from 1% to 3%. All animals developed inflammation, copper deposits, and degenerative changes in the lung tissue. In contrast to other studies with longer exposure times, this research did not find granulomas or fibrosis in the lung tissue.
  • Rats were fed ad libitum a diet containing 0, 500, 1000, 2000 or 4000 ppm of copper as copper sulfate for one month. Copper content increased in the blood, spleen, and liver for all groups. Growth and food intake decreased with higher concentrations. At the highest dose, rats died after the first week.
  • Male rats were given 100 mg/kg/day of copper sulfate by gavage for 20 days. Signs included change of paw color from pink to white and reduced body weight. Further analysis showed destruction of red blood cells and copper deposition and necrosis in liver and kidney tissue.
  • Pigs were fed copper sulfate pentahydrate at copper concentrations of 0, 250 and 425 ppm Cu for 48 to 79 days. Gastrointestinal hemorrhage, cirrhosis of the liver, and jaundice were observed at the highest dose
  • Sixteen lambs ate a diet containing copper sulfate pentahydrate at a concentration of 15 ppm Cu for 88 days. Two lambs died due to jaundice. The livers of the surviving lambs contained high concentrations of copper.
  • Sheep fed mixtures containing 5.3-9.9% copper sulfate pentahydrate ingested 0.645-1.660 g copper sulfate daily for 28 to 113 days. Signs included lethargy, jaundice, hemoglobinuria, bloody nasal discharge, fast pulse, fast breathing, greenishblack stools, and recumbency before death.
  • Laying hens were fed copper sulfate at concentrations of 78 ppm Cu and 1437 ppm Cu for 2 weeks. At the highest concentration, hens produced fewer eggs, consumed less feed, and developed ulcers in the gizzard and oral cavity. Other studies of chickens that were fed copper sulfate reported oral lesions proportional to the dose of copper, and conflicting effects on feeding rate and weight gain.
  • Rats exposed by inhalation to copper sulfate for 1 hour/day for 10 days at a concentration of 330 g/L spray had increased concentrations of copper in the liver and plasma. Copper did not accumulate in the lung tissue

It’s very clear that cupric sulfate should not be in infant formula, and everything else it’s put into. It’s classified as harmful and dangerous for the environment by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Even the material safety data sheet  lists the following health effects:

Potential Acute Health Effects: Hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant), of eye contact (irritant), of ingetion, of inhalation. Potential Chronic Health Effects: Carcinogenic Effects: Not available. Mutagenic Effects: Mutagenic for mammalian somatic cells. Teratrogenic Effects: Not available. The substance may be toxic to kidneys and liver. Repeated prolonged exposure to the substance can produce target organ damage.

You can read that entire report HERE(3)

The USDA organic label is supposed to protect the consumer against GMOs and avoidable chemical exposures, but the sobering fact is that USDA-certified infant formula manufacturers are not only being allowed to use a pesticide in their formulas, but are advertising it as a ‘healthy’ mineral to unsuspecting consumers (4)

Below are the ingredients for Similac Sensitive forumla, Cupric Sulfate is present in other major baby formula’s,like Nestle. You can view their ingredient list here, it’s pretty much the exact same. It makes absolutely no sense at all for this pesticide to be put into infant formula, as you can see above it is clearly dangerous to consume!

10 Things That Happen To Your Body When You Walk Everyday

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    There are multiple health benefits to be gained by taking a simple walk every day. These benefits are measurable, and if you don't already have an active lifestyle it can be a great way to assist you with your health.

  • Reflect On:

    Reflect on how the human race has become extremely sedentary, and how disease rates continue to climb as a result of the modern human lifestyle.

The human experience has become extremely sedentary, the average human lifestyle in the western world has been linked to multiple diseases and is one of the main causes of why disease rates continue to climb, among many other factors that surround all aspects of human life, like big food, for example. With technology in place and jobs that require tremendous amounts of sitting, there is no doubt that it’s having a detrimental effect on our lives.

That being said, the world is clearly becoming way more health conscious. It’s like we needed this experience of unhealthy food, the corporate take-over of everything, and our motionless lifestyle to knock us out of it. We are seeing a health revolution take place, where more and more people are becoming health conscious, and are always being encouraged to be more active.

Ultimately, we can’t really blame the human experience for our lack of movement, it’s something that all of us have the time to incorporate into our lives in one way or another, and if you’re someone who doesn’t enjoy being too active, a simple walk every day can have tremendous amounts of benefits. As pointed out in the video below, by Bright Side.

If You Want To Increase The Benefits Even More, Walk Barefoot

It’s called grounding, or ‘earthing’ and it involves placing your feet directly on the ground, without shoes or socks as a barrier. Why? Because there is an intense negative charge carried by the Earth, it’s electron-rich, which serves as a good supply of antioxidants and free radical destroying electrons.

A study published in the Journal of Environmental and Public Health titled “Earthing: Health Implications of Reconnecting the Human Body to the Earth’s Surface Electrons” postulates that earthing could represent a potential treatment for a variety of chronic degenerative diseases.

That’s right, many positive health benefits occur as a result of walking barefoot, and these are measurable.

Nature Valley Ad Shows The Down Side Of Children Addicted To Technology

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Technology has impacted most of our lives in a really big way. We use it daily for everything we do pretty much. Kids today, unlike previous generations, use technology more than ever and spend much less time in nature.

  • Reflect On:

    How much is too much technology for young and developing minds? Is it time to reevaluate our children's relationship with technology and get them back into nature?

Technology has become a staple in most of our lives, really, could you imagine life without it? In the video posted below, Nature Valley asks 3 generations what it was that they did for fun as a kid, the answers from the youngest generation may or may not surprise you, but is it time to cut back on the technology and bring kids back to nature?

Technology is not bad per se, that isn’t the discussion here. This is about how we use it.

Before technology, children would look to nature for entertainment. They would play outside on the lawn, go sledding, build forts, and use their imagination to create their own entertainment. Nowadays it’s all too easy for kids to get sucked into technology, there are video games, tablets, computers, cell phones and television, all of which provide a type of escape from the real world. Although, there are many ways that technology is and has been used for good in the world, is the disconnect that it is causing children and adults to part from nature causing more harm?

With the rise of mental disorders and illnesses, is it possible that the answer to these issues is simply to get kids back into nature, more time with self, using their brains to build things, be creative and connect to the energy from the Earth? We already know how effective a simple walk or hike in nature is and how they both can literally change our brains. Nature appears to be much more important than we generally give it credit for.

In my own experience, disconnecting from technology and going camping on my own proved to be a very cathartic and healing experience for me. I’ve come to realize that although being immersed in nature regularly does have a lot of benefits, but even just making time for it at all can cause a positive impact. For many of us who live in cities, with the constant bombardment of noise and of course EMF frequencies etc., just disconnecting for a short period can make a huge difference.

The following video is a brilliant ad from Nature Valley, check it out.

It’s easy to get emotional watching something like this as it shows just how far removed the newer generations are from what has been most natural to children for centuries, simply playing in nature. The children are essentially self-proclaimed tech addicts and get their entertainment by playing video games, watching videos or tv shows, texting etc. Is it time to go back to the basics and start evaluating how detrimental too much technology can be on young and developing brains? You can read more about this issue here, Is Your Child Struggling From Nature-Deficit Disorder?

Is it up to the parents to ensure they are setting proper boundaries with the amount of time their children are allowed to use technology? Or is this the future and something we should simply let happen as a natural part of evolution?

Much Love

6 Proven Ways to Cleanse Your Liver & Release Pent Up Anger

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In Chinese Medicine our liver is directly connected to anger and unfortunately, we live in a world where our liver is regularly taxed by toxic chemicals. Thankfully there is plenty that you can do without medication to keep this vital organ healthy!

  • Reflect On:

    What toxins are you regularly exposed to and what steps are you currently taking to combat them?

A toxic liver can lead to anger. In Chinese medicine, our biggest detox organ – our liver – is the organ connected to anger. When we work at changing our lifestyles and daily habits, we begin to see it having a positive effect on our mood as well as general health.

When toxicity mounts we have a more difficult time controlling or letting go of our angry feelings. Toxic chemicals accumulate in our bodies because we live in a toxic world. We microwave in plastic, we cook food in Tephlon coated pans, we smoke, we take medication, and eat fried and processed foods.

These food-like products contain toxic chemical preservatives, glyphosate; GMOs and pesticides. Ingesting poison daily results in everything from immune deficiency, mood disorders, lowered mental performance, and even life-threatening cancer.

So, besides avoiding many of the contributors of liver toxicity – what can we do?

1. Eat less added sugar & address possible yeast overgrowth in the gut

Yeast can cause fermentation of food in place of digestion and cause bloating and gas. It can contribute to “leaky gut syndrome” – thus in turn can lead to the production of toxins that may affect the brain and nervous system. Yeast overgrowth can produce alcohol as its byproduct, acetaldehyde, giving us a “hangover” feeling. It can also lead to liver damage, and it prevents the proper detoxification of other pollutants, increasing the toxicity of other toxins.

2. Support the liver with botanicals

Plant medicine like Milk Thistle and Dandelion Root can help cleanse the liver. Both extracts are known to be pretty safe and well tolerated, and toxic or adverse effects observed in the reviewed clinical trials seem to be minimal. Only those with a ragweed, iodine or latex allergy should be cautious with dandelion. (Learn more about milk thistle)

3. Drink organic aloe vera juice

High quality; raw organic aloe vera can be a phenomenal digestive aid. It seals the gut wall, aids in digestion, has anti-inflammatory properties, helps the immune system, and detoxifies the liver, skin, and colon.

4. Cook with more turmeric & black pepper to help the body absorb nutrients better

Black pepper contains a compound called piperine, which increases the bioavailability of food by decreasing activity in the intestinal tract and inhibiting the metabolism of certain enzymes. Better still, cook with lots of turmeric and black pepper together. The combination helps the body absorb more curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric.

This ingredient can heal gut wall permeability due to its amazing anti-inflammatory properties. It also aids in digestion, strengthens the immune system, improves asthma, heals wounds, prevents the progression of memory loss, controls diabetes, improves liver function, lowers cholesterol, and fights cancer. (Note: A great supplement for this that I recommend for is Liver Health)

5. Incorporate liver cleansing foods into your diet

Incorporate liver cleansing foods such as green leafy veggies, avocados, apples, garlic, olive oil, citrus fruit, beets, and cruciferous vegetables into your weekly diet.

6. See An Acupuncturist

Used for thousands of years, acupuncture has been used to detox and balance the liver meridians to reduce anger and other emotional and psychiatric issues.  Simple needle-less acupressure is often used on children.
