The Top 5 Cancer-Causing Foods You Shouldn’t Feed Your Kids

kid-eating-fast-food

Sometimes it’s easy to just reach for that bag of chips, package of cookies, or any other processed food when your child is hungry. Maybe they are crying at the grocery because they want fruit roll-up snacks and you give in to make them stop. The truth is that many of these foods have cancer-causing ingredients, among other chemicals that can be detrimental to a child’s future health.

 

Healthy snacks are important for a child. If children can discern what is healthy and what isn’t at a young age, this conditions them to make healthy choices throughout their lives. It may require a little more effort (and you may have to put up with some crying), but it will benefit them in the long run. The following are the five cancer-causing snacks you should never feed your kids.

 

#1: Pop Tarts

Don’t let the “Baked with Real Fruit” note entice you. Read the nutrition and ingredient labels and you’ll find that you can’t pronounce most of the ingredients. Corn syrup, soybeans, palm oil, dextrose, high fructose corn syrup, and artificial flavors have all been linked to sugar addiction, diabetes, and liver problems in children. Even that “real fruit” is sprayed with pesticides and grown with GMOs. Don’t be fooled by these!

 

#2: Goldfish

Goldfish are common in many households. They are said to be made with “whole grains” and “real cheddar,” but look at the bag or carton to see why they should be out of your kid’s diet. So many nutrients are eliminated in the processing of these Goldfish that they have to be enriched with fake nutrients that the body can’t properly absorb. Finally, we have the vegetable oils. After being heated to unsafe temperatures, these oils are treated with petroleum solvents. Then they are colored to make the odor more pleasant.

 

#3: Teddy Grahams

These little bear snacks are laced with the chemical preservative, TBHQ, which has been linked to stomach cancer in lab rats, fragment DNA, and can damage human lung and umbilical cells. Kids who eat these snacks can develop ADHD, anxiety, and symptoms of restlessness.

 

#4: Kid Cuisine

These frozen meals appeal to kids because they are often adorned with the newest cartoon movie characters. Corn, macaroni & cheese, chocolate pudding, and chicken nuggets do not equate to a nutritious meal. Everything in this box is processed and filled with GMOs. Read the label to discover all the trans fats, hydrogenated oils, Red 40, Blue 1 & 2, and Yellow 6, among a bunch of other chemicals. These microwave meals may save time in the kitchen, but it can shave time off life in the long run.

 

#5: Fruit Snacks

You may want to lower your expectation on the “fruit” aspect of this snack. A package of these is not the same as an apple, not by a long shot. The most commonly used color in these fruit gummies is Red 3 or erythrosine. This chemical is unsafe to use on your skin, yet it is ok to put inside your body? Just saying…

 

It’s always best to know what you are putting inside your bodies, especially when it comes to the health and future of your children. While healthy eating may require a bit more effort, it is worth it in the long run.

    Q: Thank you for the cancer info...It is welcome and beyond informative, however, I take issue with your remark that "women would be wise to just accept the fact that they are female by nature and God made them to have (deliver) babies and they should stop trying to compete with and be like men." Part of me is not surprised--men make comments like this all the time. I chalk it up to ignorance, as men enjoy living their entire lives not having to endure periods, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and lord knows what else. So because a woman does not want to have children--at all, or at a particular time in her life--she wants to be a man?! That's an illogical conclusion you are making. So why are there pregnant women with cancer, some of which who have never taken BC pills? Are women entitled to making any sort of control over their reproductive health? What about women who are infertile, naturally? If they develop cancer, is it because they never gave birth to a child? Are you willing to support all of the children that will result from women not being on Birth Control, since many people cannot afford several children on their incomes? This line of reasoning makes some women think that men really need to get over themselves. I think you have been reading too much Freud. Some women, present company included, appreciate our femininity and everything that encompasses being a woman. At the same time, this is not the dark ages--and even then, women chose not to have children during different times in their lives. Surely you are aware that in non-Western countries women utilize natural herbs to control their reproduction or as abortifacients? I am not advocating abortion; my point is that if you are going to criticize women taking BC pills, you may as well extend this criticism to women naturally preventing pregnancy via alternative means.

    A:

    Birth control pills play a big role in female reproductive cancers. Women would be wise to just accept the fact that they are female by nature and God made them to have (deliver) babies and they should stop trying to compete with and be like men. In attempting to stop or prevent life (birth control), they are ending up losing their very own lives. And the birth control pills cause cancer in areas of the body that denote femininity (breasts, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, uterus and vagina). This is a form of language here. You have disease and female organ(s) which basically means your disease is specifically related to an issue of femaleness or femininity, that's why the disease manifests in these "female" organs. In attempting to be like and compete with males, females compromise their feminine integrity and goddess nature which "eats them up" (anger, frustration, sadness, etc.) inside. When the cancer appears in any female organ, it serves as a sign or sensor that the problem lies on a deeper metaphysical level pertaining to emotions, thoughts and attitude."

    Q: I am starting to look at alternative medicines and food choices very seriously now, in fact I recently wrote a research paper on the subject, while reading your article you mentioned Dr Hulda Clark, I goggled her name and got some good and bad reviews. One article in particular caught my attention. If you could would you please read this article and give me your feedback. I am really interested in alternative medicine and I want to teach my kids about the options that they have. I am currently putting together a binder for my kids with things I have read about alternative medicines, detox, the harm that cooked foods(meats in particular) have on the body etc. This article bothered me and before I include any information on treatment from her clinic I wanted some feedback on this article.

    A:

    Hulda offers some very good information but she's a bit extreme in my opinion and she relies too much on gadgets for healing rather than the mind, diet, attitude, lifestyle, etc. The choice is up to you, Beloved, whether to include her clinic! From the article, Hulda's clinic looks very frightening! I probably wouldn't include it!

    Q: I just purchased the Pancreas Kit for children, for my 4 year old who was diagnosed with type one diabetes. I have been feeding her a raw diet of just vegetables. The diet includes no dairy, no grains, and fruit for a week. I also started the Pancreas kit last week too. I was wondering if there is any reason why her blood sugar levels would go up? All she is eating is veggies, and her sugar levels are at 300 most of the time. Even if she doesn't eat anything, it still goes up to 300. I also know it says you cannot tell us not to give, or not to give her insulin, or not. I am still currently giving it to her. Does the pancreas kit work just as well if the are receiving insulin or not? Or does it hinder the process?. I would really appreciate other advise you would offer. Thanks so much!

    A:

    Drugs and herbs don't mix! They cancel each other out. The blood sugar will go up and down due to the body attempting to regulate, and normalize the blood sugar levels. Perfectly normal! It's called "healing crisis. Whatever you guys choose to do, simply keep monitoring the person. Ask the person how he/she feels (very important).

    Q: If I gave the SUGAR BUSTER to my child for adhd what effect is it going to have on them compared to what they are taking now, one is on addrell and the other is concerta? I have no idea! I really don't believe in ADD! ADD only means a child is too advanced and is greatly bored in the classroom learning non-mentally stimulating things for an old world paradigm. However, the drugs you are giving those innocent children are harming their bodies and overall health. Problems are not fixed by drugging. Have you read our article entitled "ATTENTION-DEFICIT DISORDER"?

    Q: Fresh fruit is mentioned in the full body cleanse literature, but I didn't see anything about frozen fruit. Can I use frozen fruit during the fbc?

    Q: I was diagnosed with breast cancer about 18 months ago and I've been treating the tumor wholistically with no chemo or radiation. The tumor has gradually gotten smaller but I'm concerned that the progress could be improved if my diet was better. I get conflicting information about eating fruits while trying to maintain a high alkaline diet. Should people healing cancer eat fruit?

    A:

    Fruits are predominantly alkaline but most warnings about fruit while having cancer stems from the sugars in fruit which cancer can thrive in which is why many healers recommend vegetables instead of fruits. All live foods are good for you when there is cancer because live foods have enzymes.

    Q: The first time I had cancer it was uterine cancer where they did a hysterectomy. Now she has cancer in her liver, kidneys, on her stomach lining and spine. I am very concerned with my health so you may be correct. However, how do I deal with the sores that have manifested already? I am starting to meditate more to help me deal with my fears and emotions. What do you recommend?

    A:

    Purchase our NEW MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL E-Book that helps you work on your mind, thoughts, and emotions - the root of healing! Read the article "SEA SALT SOAKS" and begin doing those. I would suggest you perform the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. Your body is telling you that you need to deal with past sexual hang-ups or look more into your sexuality and be at peace with yourself. You may want to consider a consultation as well!

    Q: To make a long story short, my mother just found out that the 'cancer' her doctors had been treating her for the past 8 yrs was misdiagnosed. Her new Doctor informed her she's HIV positive and all the drugs; radiation/chemo treatments have only weakened her body. This information is quite distressing. My mother is now taking 15 pills a day and is essentially confined to home and bed. My mother will be 68 yrs old at the end of this month. Please advise what you would recommend she takes that will help her feel better and help get the toxic waste out of her body that these pill are helping to create. Thanks for any info regarding this matter.

    A:

    Put her on the FULL BODY DETOX. After the detox, have her take ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD capsules (5 capsules) 5-6 times a day and drink RAINFOREST TONIC TEA. She must eat only raw foods. Please read our â€CANCER: Causes and Remedies†article.

    Q: I have read about your detox system on your site and others. Here is the product that I am thinking about purchasing: Full Body Detox I have some questions... 1) Is there a diet plan or eating plan that comes with this order? and 2) I have 100 pounds to lose and am thinking about going on the Medifast plan. That is a high (vegetable) protein diet with no fruit and not a lot of vegetables allowed. Would these supplements in the detox plan help my organs that might be taxed a bit on this diet with very little vegetables and no fruit? I am skeptical about #2...I think raw fruits and vegetables are so important inour diets, yet, I do need to drop weight fast. I look forward to any thoughts that you might have.

    A:

    Yes, the Full Body Cleanse comes with a dietary regimen prescribing an all-raw foods diet (fruits, vegetables, raw nuts and seeds). This means no meat, dairy, grains, or processed foods.

    Q: Peace, and Blessing Brethren! I have a question, did you see on You Tube a young man, who was crying blood? He has had a MRI done, and plenty of other tests. This is crazy. I don't know if this is real, or fake. Can you elaborate on this, and what may be causing this condition?

    A:

    I didn't see the video, and would need more information on the person's condition before elaborating. Otherwise I'd be speculating and wasting my time, as I'm in the midst of writing more articles that will be posted to Dherbs later this month. The blood may have been coming from his lacrymal glands which produces our tears.

    Q: I just purchased the CHILDREN LUNG EXTRACT for my daughter who will be 3 in January 2009. She has Asthma and a cold which is causing wheezing, rapid breathing, coughing, she is miserable. MD has prescribed Prednisolone and nebulizer treatments of albuterol. Questions: 1. Can I give her the Lung Extract while she is taking the prescribed medicine? 2. Is there another product that you sell that I should be giving her in place of or in addition to the Lung extract? My hope is the get her healthy with herbs and natural treatments so she will not have to take the prescription meds.

    A:

    It is not wise to take herbs and drugs (poison) simultaneously. Either you are into healing or you're not. With drug consumption you are not into healing. You are into masking symptoms! Give the CHILDREN LUNG EXTRACT as well as MUCUS BUSTER FORMULA.

    Q: hello, you have a great website and products it seems. I have a 3 year old daughter She has been sick for about 3 weeks already. She started with a cold then a bad cough. We ended up in the E.R. with her because she just would not stop coughing, had a chest x-ray-she was developing an pneumnia. I am so tired and depressed because they put her on a steriod for 5 days antibiotics and the nebulizer, she might even develop Asthma (but "they" do not know for sure). I goggled herbs for children and came across your website. It looks like you have great stuff for kids. I also work for a natural herb company but we do not have any kid’s supplements nor herbs. What do you recommend from your products? (by the way I read your story about when your were a child and ended it up in the hospital----kind of like my little girl's situation. I’m glad you are much healthier.

    A:

    Glad you like the website! Sounds like the little girl has excess mucus in her. The drugs (steroids and antibiotics) will only mask the problem and harm the little girl. I suggest you get your daughter the CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) and start here!
