Dangerous Additives Contributing To Type 2 Diabetes

I came across this article from Blue Heron news concerning the multitude of additives found in our fruits and vegetables and fruit juices etc. that have been proven to affect insulin resistance in fat cells.
The article mentions specifically one dangerous additive in wide use in other countries and very possibly imported to the USA in various fruits and vegetables.

The culprit is "Tolylfluanid". Read the article below to educate yourself on this additive.


Hos 4:6.............My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.


We all know that the key to good health is to eat healthy. Load your plate with at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables every day, the health authorities recommend.
And I, of course, agree fully… or almost!
You see, there is a caution you have to take. Because some types of fruits and vegetables may actually be contributing to type 2 diabetes. And it’s not what you would think.
This is the subject of today’s feature article.
You see, it isn’t the fruits and vegetables themselves that cause type 2 diabetes. It’s how they’re grown. Most vegetables are loaded with synthetic chemicals all throughout the growing process. And these chemicals stay in the plants all the way onto your plate.
Of course, authorities always claim the chemicals used are tested and safe. That is till we find out they’re not safe and the chemicals are banned and new ones take their place.
The newest chemical in the list of “used to be safe but now we don’t know” is the fungicide tolylfluanid. This is a synthetic pesticide used commonly on farm crops.
A recent study linked this chemical to insulin resistance. And we all know that insulin resistance is the beginning of type 2 diabetes. This was revealed on the Endocrine Society’s 94th annual meeting in July.
The scientist applied this tolylfluanid to fat cells and discovered that the fat cells became resistant to the insulin. They also began storing more fat.
The good news is that using tolylfluanid is actually forbidden in many western countries – including the USA because it has been found to cause various health issues in rats. But don’t be too quick to celebrate.
Why? Two reasons:
1) Tolylfluanid is only one of many chemicals used on crops all over the world. And like other chemicals used today, it used to be considered completely safe. So what does that tell us about other chemicals that are considered completely safe today?
2) Tolylfluanid is used on fruits and vegetables all over the world. Products that are most likely imported into your local supermarket. Or used in the packed fruit juice concentrate. And regulating import of crops or products produced using tolylfluanid is almost non-existent.
And it isn’t just type 2 diabetes that’s affected by these chemicals. They contribute to all health issues such as high blood pressure, cancer, arthritis, thyroid problems and even erectile dysfunction.
(Note: links above lead to solutions for these health issues).
So what is the alternative?
The only way to completely guarantee you’re consuming a minimal amount of these chemicals is to eat organic. Nothing else you can do. And for absolutely best results choose locally grown organic products.
That’s the only way know your fruit salad is good and healthy.

  1. Depending on where you read, McDonald’s introduced the boneless pork sandwich sometime between 1981 and 1982. The fast-food concoction vanished in 1985, only to reappear as a limited-edition item in 1994. there are some cool paints here
