Carrol Krause used to be a journalist in the newspaper Herald-Times that serves Bloomington, Indiana. However, she retired from her career in 2004 when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. ‘Stories Carrol’ His blog was written just before he died in February, and talk about the best and worst that was happening to him in the last days of his life.
In several months, Carol began to have digestive problems so she was not able to eat normal food. She writes that although the hospice had the best intentions, which feeds dying people with this horrible things that is not real food.
The material received from the hospice were Guarantee the products milkshakes, pudding, and a drink that is supposed to be an apple juice. The nutritional value of these “things” chemical-laden is the same as that of most commercial junk food, and drinks are supposed to life-saving nutrition for extremely sick.
The major food corporation that aims to be a healthy alternative, Abbott Nutrition, owns Ensure. The worst is that the company has close ties to the medical industry, so their products can be found in almost all hospitals. This is really sad as their “meals” are intended for patients trying to regain health.
The truth about “guarantee”
Guarantee Abbott is a brand that makes medical “nutritional shakes and drinks.” It has great demands on customers, such as “# 1 Doctor Recommended” and “World Leader in Nutritional Sciences,” but in reality their products as they are far from a healthy food that can be obtained. Unfortunately, these products are often given to patients in very poor health, which need proper nutrition maximum. In contrast, when the consumption of these products are receiving the following :. Preservatives, fillers and chemicals
To make matters worse, Abbott Nutrition is a member of the famous the Grocery Manufacturers Association pro-GMO organization, and to date has given nearly a million dollars to fight the labeling of GMOs in the United States.
Does this sound like the kind of company whose products must feed their loved ones? After seeing these products and their ingredients has the answer.
Ensure Clear ™ Therapeutic Nutrition
Although the front of the pack portrays an orange and an apple to it, no apple juice. Instead, this mixture is made of water and sugar. Also contains corn syrup, which are made by using corn syrup solids dehydrated. This means that is transgenic maize, which has been linked to cancer and diabetes.
This therapeutic nutritional drink also contains cupric sulfate, a toxic pesticide that is associated with itching, eczema, headache, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach, brain, kidney and liver damage. In addition, it is dangerous for the environment.
Chloride Chromium is another ingredient in this drink. In fact, it is a toxic chemical that adversely affects the stomach and reproductive system.
Speaking of vitamins, it is important to mention that this drink still contains some. However, the problem is that vitamins are not genuine, but rather synthetic versions. use of chemicals are made and the body is unable to absorb the same way it does with the real thing.
Pesticides, chemicals and toxins
The solids content of corn syrup is corn syrup dehydrated, that is 100 percent glucose. This form of sugar increases the risk of obesity. In almost all cases, corn syrup is produced from GM maize, and has been associated with cancer and diabetes.
cupric sulfate is, in fact, a fungicide and toxic pesticide that can cause anemia, gastrointestinal problems, and high doses of it can even cause death. It could also cause mutation of cells as a result of genetic damage (genotoxic).
toxic chromium chloride negatively influences both the man and the reproductive system of women. It can cause ulcers, abnormal bleeding and stomach problems.
Although the Environmental Protection Agency has classified as dangerous sodium selenite, this toxic ingredient that is a byproduct of the refining of copper it is often labeled as a nutrient.
natural and artificial flavors may include harmful chemicals-to-death often derived from inorganic sources. They contribute to a diseased organism and the development of cancer.
While our bodies, especially when you are sick, require a lot of vitamins, there is a big difference between natural vitamins from food or from natural sources, compared with synthetic vitamins. Unfortunately, the vitamins contained in ensuring that products and other foods and supplements marketed “health” are almost always synthetic, and are made with chemicals.
Generally speaking, when a new study, it is found that states that some vitamin is toxic at high levels, is because only the synthetic version of which has been studied, however, are grouped with the natural vitamins.
Synthetic are not absorbed by the body in the same way as natural vitamins, since they have been “isolated” – are separated from the whole complex of vitamins and trace elements and enzymes. What a synthetic vitamin is deficient, the body tries to compensate by itself, and exhausts its nutrients in the process, as explained by Organic Consumers.
“This process gives an overall negative effect on health and minimize the profits that could have been achieved by the supplement” as “Nutri-Con: The Truth About Vitamins and Supplements” report Hippocrates Health Institute
– The synthetic version of vitamin E acetate DL-alpha-tocopherol. It is provided only 12 percent of the effectiveness of natural vitamin E, and usually obtained as a by-product of a manufacturing process dependent on petrochemicals. This synthetic vitamin is linked to an increased risk of DNA damage, hemorrhagic stroke, etc.
– synthetic type of ferrous sulfate. nausea, constipation, gastrointestinal problems and allergic reactions may occur.
– synthetic type of vitamin B3 Niacinamide. It has many side effects including liver failure.
– manganese sulfate. The reaction between sulfuric acid and manganese oxide produces manganese sulfate. Usually it used in fertilizers and fungicides, paints and varnishes, and ceramics, along with medications.
– synthetic version of vitamin B5-calcium pantothenate. Pantothenic acid derivative.
– synthetic type of vitamin A-palmitate vitamin A. It can cause stomach problems and liver damage.
– Zinc Sulfate. It is an organic form zinc in hazards to the environment, which can be toxic to cells.
– chemical version of sodium molybdate sodium. It has been shown to adversely affect fertility in animals.
vitamins More synthetics included as components are: citric acid, whey protein (probably from genetically modified cows fed corn organisms), a kind of synthesis of vitamin C-ascorbic acid (often inorganic and difficult for the digestion), biotin, folic acid, and vitamin D3.
Note that these ingredients are included in one of the top Ensure products, which clearly is nutritionally worthless compared to real food.
Call to Action Carrol
In September 2015, Carol blogged that “hogwash” Hospice is very vile, and nothing more than a collection of sugars, starches, nutritional powders, artificial flavors and all mixed in water. She says that those who can not make the difference between real and fake food, could not object to the consumption of Guarantee, but she knows what is real food and healthy is, therefore calls for support.
Carol wrote that I would not feed this horrible swill, even a dying animal, and we like to use social media to capture the attention of hospital management about this big problem. She encourages a struggle for adequate and decent food.
