How often are parents aware of the ingredients contained in the multivitamin that they feed their children? We often believe what we hear without ever questioning what mass marketing and media has to say about a product. In this case they have led thousands of parents to purchase multivitamins because they believe it has significant nutritional value. But do these vitamins truly provide nutritional benefit? If so, at what cost?–If we look at the Flintstones vitamin, (one of the top multivitamins in the United States) it contains a number of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs), aspartame, aluminum, petroleum-derived artificial colours and more. All of these ingredients are not optimal for health and can be very toxic. You can view the entire list of ingredients here.—Lets take a closer look at some of these ingredients.

Aspartame—–Aspartame is known to damage the brain at any dose by leaving traces of Methanol in the blood. It makes you wonder why Aspartame has been approved as “safe” and is found in thousands of food products; not to mention children’s vitamins. It’s also linked to Lymphoma and Leukaemia. You can read more about that here and here (sources provided at the bottom). It’s basically a synthetic combination of the amino acids aspartic acid and I-phenylalanine. It’s known to convert into toxic methanol and formaldehyde in the body. Hopefully this motivates you to further your research. If you are looking for specific studies, you can check out these ones published in the US National Library of Medicine:

Consumption of artificial sweetener and risk of lymphoma and leukaemia

Effect of chronic exposure to aspartame

Long-term consumption of aspartame and brain antioxidant defense status

Aspartame-induces impairment of spatial cognition and insulin sensitivity

Synergistic interactions between food additives in a developmental neurotoxicity test

Multipotential carcinogenic effects of aspartame

Sorbitol

Sorbitol is a synthetic sugar substitute which is classified as a sugar alcohol. The ingestion of higher amounts have been linked to gastrointestinal disturbances from abdominal pain to more serious conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome. You can view some studies related to Sorbitol below:

Sorbitol intolerance in adults

Sorbitol intolerance: an unappreciated cause of functional gastrointestinal complaints

Sorbitol used as an osmotic cathartic has caused severe hypernatremia (elevation of sodium in the blood) in children

Hydrogenated Soybean Oil

Anything marketed to children that contains hydrogenated soybean oil is irresponsible. They are semi-synthetic fatty acids that incorporate themselves into our tissues. They’ve been linked to dozens of harmful health effects, from coronary artery disease to cancer and fatty liver disease. You can view a number of links to studies conducted here.

Ferrous Fumarate

This is quite remarkable that Ferrous Fumarate is an ingredient here. There is a clear warning on the Flintstone’s web site concerning this chemical. It’s used as an iron supplement. When consuming iron that comes naturally in food, it’s impossible to inject toxic amounts that can cause death. But when taking Ferrous Fumarate, fatal levels of toxicity can be reached.—Accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children under 6. Keep this product out of reach of children. In case of accidental overdose, call a doctor or poison control centre immediately (1)–Studies have been conducted that show ferrous fumarate doesn’t even affect iron status in children, you can read that study here. Below are links to a few more studies, out of many:

Ferrous fumarate increases clinical disease activity in inflammatory bowel disease patients

Ferrous fumarate deteriorated plasma antioxidant status in patients with Crohn disease

Ferrous fumarate has been demonstrated to be toxic to newborn foals

Cupric Oxide

According the European Union’s Dangerous Substance Directive, Cupric Oxide is listed as a hazardous substance. It’s classified as both harmful and dangerous to the environment. It is used as a pigment in ceramics and as a chemical in the production of rayon fabric and dry cell batteries. It is indeed a mineral, but should this really be a nutrient in a children’s vitamin?

Brief Summary of Bayer Pharmaceuticals

Most pharmaceutical companies, like Bayer, the developer of the Flintstones vitamins, do not have the best track record. Bayer is a German chemical and pharmaceutical company founded in 1863. In 1925, it became part of IG Farben, a German chemical industry conglomerate. This chemical company had board members that were responsible for the creation of the Federal Reserve, like Paul Warburg (2), who sat on the board of the Federal Reserve as well as I.G Farben. It was a corporation well connected with the Rockefeller’s, and the second largest shareholder in Standard Oil. The investment was part of a pattern of reciprocal investments between the U.S. and Germany during the Nazi years (3). It’s well known that IG Farben was closely connected with the Nazi’s. They held the patent for the pesticide Zyklon B, the chemical used in gas chambers. Some of IG Farben’s directors were accused as war criminals, while others continued on with the agenda we see taking form today. We can see a conflict of interest through the companies shareholders when it comes to the creation of pharmaceutical products.

I think it’s time for us to examine what we choose to feed our children. All it takes is a little investigation and stepping into our own awareness of what is going on around us. Many of us live a robotic life style, we are all here doing the same thing. We’ve been programmed to grow up, work and spend most of our hours doing just that. While we participate in a 9-5, eat sleep watch TV, participate in a number of activities for entrainment purposes type of reality, there are those working behind the scenes manipulating the consciousness of the human race. All we have to do is notice, after that we can begin making better choices in our own lives. The world is indeed waking up, something new is desired, the current Earth paradigm is one many people don’t resonate with any more. A lot of us feel that it’s time to move on, grow and explore our infinite potentiality.

Timed restricted feeding (RF) provides a time cue and resets the circadian clock, leading to better health. In contrast, a high-fat (HF) diet leads to disrupted circadian expression of metabolic factors and obesity. We tested whether long-term (18 wk) clock resetting by RF can attenuate the disruptive effects of diet-induced obesity. Analyses included liver clock gene expression, locomotor activity, blood glucose, metabolic markers, lipids, and hormones around the circadian cycle for a more accurate assessment. Compared with mice fed the HF diet ad libitum, the timed HF diet restored the expression phase of the clock genes Clock and Cry1 and phase-advanced Per1, Per2, Cry2, Bmal1, Rorα, and Rev-erbα. Although timed HF-diet-fed mice consumed the same amount of calories as ad libitum low-fat diet-fed mice, they showed 12% reduced body weight, 21% reduced cholesterol levels, and 1.4-fold increased insulin sensitivity. Compared with the HF diet ad libitum, the timed HF diet led to 18% lower body weight, 30% decreased cholesterol levels, 10% reduced TNF-α levels, and 3.7-fold improved insulin sensitivity. Timed HF-diet-fed mice exhibited a better satiated and less stressed phenotype of 25% lower ghrelin and 53% lower corticosterone levels compared with mice fed the timed low-fat diet. Taken together, our findings suggest that timing can prevent obesity and rectify the harmful effects of a HF diet.—Sherman, H., Genzer, Y., Cohen, R., Chapnik, N., Madar, Z., Froy, O. Timed high-fat diet resets circadian metabolism and prevents obesity. ******************************************************************** Interactions between the circadian clock and metabolism: there are good times and bad times. Shi M, Zheng X. Source Department of Neuroscience, University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA. Abstract An endogenous circadian (∼24 h) clock regulates rhythmic processes of physiology, metabolism and behavior in most living organisms. While able to free-run under constant conditions, the circadian clock is coupled to day : night cycles to increase its amplitude and align the phase of circadian rhythms to the right time of the day. Disruptions of the circadian clock are correlated with brain dysfunctions, cardiovascular diseases and metabolic disorders. In this review, we focus on the interactions between the circadian clock and metabolism. We discuss recent findings on circadian clock regulation of feeding behavior and rhythmic expression of metabolic genes, and present evidence of metabolic input to the circadian clock. We emphasize how misalignment of circadian clocks within the body and with environmental cycles or daily schedules leads to the increasing prevalence of metabolic syndromes in modern society. ********************************************************************* Monsanto Winter Offensive Strikes India, China and Russia Monsanto is currently on a well hidden worldwide winter offensive with their main targets including India, China and Russia, as they aim to open up new money spinning frontiers. China: Monsanto CEO Makes Emergency Visit (Sustainable Pulse Exclusive)--According to Sustainable Pulse sources in China, Monsanto’s CEO Hugh Grant held high level meetings with the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Science and Technology, and Ministry of Commerce in the week before Christmas.---These meetings allegedly involved discussions, which aimed to alleviate the current panic amongst some of Monsanto’s main supporters in the US, who are worried that some Monsanto strains of corn will soon be refused by China, alongside the 545,000 metric tons of U.S. corn that have been refused so far this year in cargoes that contained Syngenta’s MIR162 strain.---Grant was also allegedly trying to quell fears amongst Chinese authorities over the illegal smuggling of Monsanto corn seeds into China on a very large scale. Russia: Door Unlocked for Biotech Industry (Sustainable Pulse Exclusive) Despite suggestions from the Russian government earlier in 2013 that a full moratorium would be placed on GM crops and possibly all products containing GMOs, they seem to have now opened a door to the biotech industry with a new decree, allowing for the ‘state registration’ of both GM crops and GMO products, which will come in to force in June 2014.--On December 25 a group of Russian experts including representatives of scientific, social and environmental organizations sent an open letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin calling for him personally to cancel the controversial decree.---After a round table meeting, called ‘Is Russia ready to accept GMOs?’, the Russian experts called on Putin to introduce temporary restrictions on the cultivation of GMOs in Russian fields until there is clear evidence of their biological and ecological security.------Elena Sharoykina, Director of the National Association for Genetic Safety (NAGS) stated; “In September, Vladimir Putin said that there needs to be tight control over the circulation of GMOs until the introduction of a total ban, and then I was hoping that our appeal to declare Russia free of GMOs would be heard. But the Government Resolution № 839 destroyed all hope, which is a sad outcome for environmental protection in Russia. But, nevertheless, we still have a few months to stop the sowing of GM Crops in Russia. The health, safety and food sovereignty of the country is at stake.” India: New Environment Minister is Pro GM Crops After a massive push by Monsanto in India they seem to have managed to create a political U-turn there too. We wonder how?--On Friday Monsanto India’s shares shot up over 14% on the back of reports that the Environment Minister Veerappa Moily is likely to approve GM crops in the country.--His move is against the position of his immediate predecessors Jayanthi Natarajan and Jairam Ramesh.--Moily’s support will pave the way for the government to submit an affidavit in the Supreme Court acquiescing to field trials of GM food crops on a conditional basis, the Economic Times reported.--The apex court is hearing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) on the issue and the Prime Minister’s Office as well as the Agricultural Ministry have pushed hard to submit such an affidavit, but were unable to do so because of resistance from Natarajan. Her opposition to GMO field trials has been cited as one of the reasons for her departure. **************************************************************************** TOP C
