Is your food hexxed by hexane?

Levels of a dangerous neurotoxin, hexane are allowed at much higher rates in the US food supply than in the Eurozone’s foods, as with many other damaging chemicals and additives.

Yes, we Americans seem to be the food and chemical industries’ favorite guinea pigs through the years and apparently, we’ll eat anything as long as it’s charmingly or intriguingly marketed…and the more inexpensive the better.

Since soy sausage patties came on the US market over 30 years ago, my family and I have preferred them to meat sausages so it’s disturbing to find that we’ve been consuming dangerous levels of hexane all along. Canola oil was a staple in my kitchen for years but no longer for it too is contaminated with hexane.

Beginning several years ago, even my gynocologist said soy was good for me! Turns out our bodies need hexaned-soy like they need the other hormone disruptors our foods are laced with. That the US FDA is complicit in the scheme to weaken the American people’s health seems obvious to me. Plus, I’m lookin’ at You, healthcare industry and the AMA!

Horrible hexane is a petroleum by-product used in the process of extracting oil from seeds so it’s worth your time (if you chow down in the USA) to ferret out the products and manufacturers who use this cheap and readily available ingredient (since 1930!) in the foods you and your family consume and take whatever steps you can to avoid them as much as possible.

And perhaps ask your congress members and the President: why do you allow the American people to be poisoned into ill health on a daily basis?

At least, that’s my advice for the New Year!

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
