"We as consumers are a strange lot to say the least. Regardless of
how much evidence and validation is presented to us conflicting our
beliefs we tend to hold onto the old ways though they continue to be
proven the least healthy and even life threatening. The real oddity is
that we sling mud at the answer to what ails us while still embracing
that which is doing severe harm to our bodies. Is the media really that
strong or is it us that is that weak?
1) More than half a billion eggs have been recalled this summer due to salmonella contamination.
2) FDA’s Investigation: On March 23, 2009, the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration asked Irvington, N.J.-based Westco Fruit and Nut Co.,
Inc. (Westco/Westcott) to voluntarily recall all of its products
containing peanuts from PCA because of the contamination threat.
Westco/Westcott refused. On April 8, 2009, the FDA served
Westco/Westcott with an inspection warrant in an attempt to gain access
to the company’s distribution records.
On April 27, 2009, at the request of the FDA, U.S. Marshals seized
$34,500 worth of PCA peanuts and products containing PCA peanuts at
Westco/Westcott because of possible Salmonella contamination.
Peanut Corporation of America Provides Further Information Regarding Recalled Products
- The Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) has announced that because
of its bankruptcy proceedings, it is no longer able to
communicate with customers of recalled products.
- PCA customers should contact FDA recall coordinators regarding the proper disposition of recalled products.
As of January 27, 2009, over 500 reports of salmonella food poisoning
have been reported in 43 states involving the same strain of bacteria.
More than 100 people have been hospitalized and at least 8 salmonella deaths have been linked to contaminated peanut butter.
3) Protein is not be the only thing that some muscle-building energy drinks contain.
In a newly released study by Consumer Reports, potentially hazardous heavy metals were also found in the popular protein elixirs.
"All drinks in our tests had at least one sample containing one or
more of the following contaminants: arsenic, cadmium, lead, and
mercury," the report stated. "Those metals can have toxic effects on
several organs in the body."
Specifically, Consumer Reports tested 15 different protein drinks, and
came to the conclusion that there are "better and cheaper ways" for a
person to supplement protein. Among the drinks
the advocacy group tested were BSN Lean Dessert Protein Shake, Muscle
Milk, GNC Lean Shake Chocolate, and the Energy First Pro Energy Whey
And still we continue to buy, ingest, feed our kids and even defend
the poisons we ingest. Point said, we are a strange lot in regard to

"Both my son an I are dying from CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) due to
causes not yet known for certain. Our doctors believe it was a
combination of high protein intake that produces a lot of negative waste
for the kidneys to handle and our levels of arsenic, cadmium, lead, and
mercury are at a cyto-toxic level. I would think ANY amount of arsenic,
cadmium, lead, and mercury would be considered toxic and too much? So
why is it okay to have it in our foods with salmonella and other health
threatening ingredients? Approximately 1 out of 10 people in the UK have
CKD. 26 million Americans have CKD and millions of others are at
increased risk daily. The number is growing yearly and a major concern
shows its ugly head as our food supplies are being largely unregulated
by the FDA. Did you know that the FDA actually sets a "limit" for how
much of each deadly substance can be in our foods? This seems a very
cavalier way of accepting the inclusion in foods of substances that are
not only deadly but accumulate over time in our bodies thus shortening
our lives and good health!
I was a long time natural competitive bodybuilder and power lifter
using all of the top protein sources from food to supplements. I weighed
113kg average with under 10% body fat then dropped to 81.3kg as the
disease progressed. My son at 11 weighs 23.6kg though he did weigh
33.5kg. He is in stage 3 CKD looking for a kidney donor and I am nearing
stage 5 preparing for dialysis. CKD is an incurable disease like so
many others that require very high quality protein intake and we are
very limited as to how much total protein we can eat due to toxic waste
from the protein. Being sick all of the time is no joy and
malnutrition adds to the rate of decline.
About 10 weeks ago my clinical nutritionist offered an alternative to
the meek protein level of intake we were able to ingest due to toxic
waste. He said it was something he uses personally and can only tell us
about. The product was brought to him by a patient who swears she feels
better than she has in years due to use and most of her discussion
group is now using it. Being a nutritionist myself I did some research
and found the science behind it appeared sound so gave it a shot. That
was 9 weeks ago. I have more energy, feel the best I have in 3 years and
I weigh 87kg now. I am even back to some basic power training. I
followed the guidelines for use and gave the nutritional product to my
son starting 5 weeks ago and he is up 2.5kg and wants to play sports
again. We visited our Nephrologists about 3 days ago for review of our
most recent blood and urine tests. His response was not what expected.
Both my son and I realized a dramatic reduction in protein waste and
loss, a decrease in our creatine and an increase in eGFR. This means
both of us have realized an improvement in kidney function and over all
health. Our doctor assured us this does not mean a cure has been found
but the nutritional supplement appears to have taken a significant load
off of our kidneys and allowed our over all health to improve when
nothing else has. The name of the product is HumaPro® and is made by a
company in the USA called ALR Industries.
No Lead, arsenic, mercury, salmonella, animal by-products and
vegetarian friendly. As for me, I am starting to look like a bodybuilder
again my son can be proud of while he is playing Rugby this Saturday."
I want to thank ALR Industries for giving us a far better choice!"
