DANGER TO YOUR FAMILY!!
From the Department of Life Education:
The following is information from a farmer who grows and packages carrots for IGA, METRO, LOBLAWS, etc.
The small cocktail (baby) carrots you buy in small plastic bags are made using the larger crooked or deformed carrots which are put through a machine which cuts and shapes them into cocktail carrots – most people probably know this already.
What you may not know and should know is the following:
Once the carrots are cut and shaped into cocktail carrots they are dipped in a solution of water and chlorine in order to preserve them (this is the same chlorine used in your pool).
Since they do not have their skin or natural protective covering, they give them a higher dose of chlorine.
You will notice that once you keep these carrots in your refrigerator for a few days, a white covering will form on the carrots. This is the chlorine which resurfaces. At what cost do we put our health at risk to have esthetically pleasing vegetables?
Chlorine is a very well-known carcinogen, which causes Cancer. I thought this was worth passing on. Pass it on to as many people as possible in hopes of informing them where these carrots come from and how they are processed.
A friend made me aware of this. I had heard some of the issue but was not really “informed”.
This morning I invested in myself and wife by watching the video (see link directly below).
It is an eye opener! Many of the symptoms they discuss – I experience. A sad fact is I usually feel my worst right after eating; and no I am not an over eater. I maintain a low fat diet and use only lean meat.
However – I love pizza, corn (chips, etc.) and I suspect I now know why I have the problems I do.
Invest in your life. If you have family, significant others and friends – consider it an investment in their life as well.
I’ve made it easy.
