Why a Snickers Bar is An Absolute Health Nightmare
#1
Ya know, I LOVE Snickers Candy Bars...any of them. But I have to say, after a lifetime of being lied to about fats and other stuff in our foods., well, it sorta turns out the 'chemically altered and genetically spliced' foods may be harming us. So, sadly, I must forgo the occasional trip to the little store at the gas station where I'm fueling up, for a little snack of a Snickers Bar from now on.

I already got a touch of Diabetes tendency, so I certainly aught to stop any way.

High Fructose Corn Syrup, Soy based products come from mostly an unfermented (Oriental Soy is first fermented before eating or cooking), highly genetically modified and hard on the bod  oil and pulp concoction. No wonder we have so many getting fat from what they are told are just the best things to eat and so healthy!

Don't let me get started on Canola Oil.

Why a Snickers Bar is An Absolute Health Nightmare

The Mars candy company introduced one of its most popular candy bars in 1930, sold for a nickel. This candy bar was named after the Mars family’s favorite horse, Snickers. The Mars candy company earns $2 million dollars annually from the sales of the Snickers bar.
Mars went on to make many versions and variations of the Snickers bar including, Snickers Crunch bar, Snickers Almond bar, Cookies & Snickers, and even a King Size Snickers bar.

In the UK, in 2004, the Food and Drink Federation created a manifesto which included 7 pledge of action, requesting the food and drink industry to reduce portions sizes, clearly label ingredients and nutritional information, and reduce the levels of fat, salt and sugar in their products.

The Mars company pledged to replace the King Size Snickers bar in the UK, with a shareable size bar by 2005. King Size Snickers bars are still being sold in the US containing the large amounts of fat, salt and sugar as well as some other questionable ingredients.

Snickers bar ingredients:
Milk chocolate, sugar, cocoa butter, skim milk, lactose, milk fat, soy lecithin, artificial flavor, peanuts, corn syrup, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, salt and egg whites.

Aside from the obvious dangers to people with dairy, nut or eggs allergies, there are some other hidden dangers amongst these ingredients.

• Sugar and corn sugar (high fructose corn syrup)
Rats fed HFCS gained 300% more fat than those being fed (even slightly more amounts of) regular sugar or sugar from fruit. It also fattens your heart with bad cholesterol, causing plaque build up, leading to hypertension, heart disease and even stroke. Liver, gallbladder and kidneys process HFCS. It is highly destructive to the liver and can cause fatty liver. Scarring of the liver diminishes its ability to process out toxins that will make you sick. HFCS is also high in Mercury levels. Exposure (in young, growing children especially) can result in irreversible brain and nervous system damage.

•Soybean Oil/Soy Lecithin

•Soy is higher in phytoestrogen than any other food. Phytoestrogens are plant based estrogen that mimic the estrogen in our body. Consuming high amounts of phytoestrogen, is the leading cause of breast cancer, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, infertility and low libido.

•Soy is also the king of cell Goitrogens (thyroid suppressors).

•Phytlates found in soy block mineral absorption.

•Also found in Soy, Trypsin inhibitors, inhibits proper digestion of protein.

•93% of Soy is genetically modified.


•Partially hydrogenated soybean oil


GMO soybean oil causes obesity, diabetes, fatty liver.

Is an unnatural man made fat (from one of the most unhealthy oils-soybean oil) that causes cellular dysfunction. This dysfunction can cause cancer, autoimmune disease, diabetes, obesity, asthma, heart disease, bone degeneration, increased levels of “bad” cholesterol and decreased levels of “good” cholesterol, reduces immune function, creates reproductive problems and causes interference with our body’s ability to utilize omega-3 fats.

Oh man...my body doesn't react well to dairy milk, so I've been using soy milk as an alternative...maybe I should make the switch back to almond milk after reading that soy info.

Those black and white Fresian-Holstein cows that are most popular in commercial milk production herds because the produce large volumes of watery "blue" milk also produce a particular protein in their milk that some people are allergic to. Many of the smaller, older breeds of dairy and "dual purpose" cows that produce smaller volumes of richer milk often do not contain the offending protein. There are some specialist producers (in this country anyway) who have selected cows that produce milk that does not contain the offending protein (I think it's called A2 type milk). Anyhow, that milk is usually a little more expensive but, goodness me! it tastes a whole lot better.

I have known several people with some "health" issues from migraine to general ill thrift and lassitude that remarkably improved (problems practically vanished) when they switched from commercial milk to goat's milk or the A2? type.

You might look into the business... you might find some benefits too.

Oldavid, I think I would kiss you if I could. The  milk thing might be the exact solution I'm looking for !
