While Americans love and enjoy their favorite sweet treat, the overwhelming majority of ice cream eaters don’t know what they’re eating. Chocolate, French Vanilla, Neapolitan, Cookies N Cream, Praline Pecan, Strawberry, Chocolate Chip, Butter Pecan, Mint Chocolate Chip, Rocky Road, Marble Fudge, Chocolate Fudge and a host of other ambrosial flavored brands-harmful? How so?
First of all, since ice cream is a dairy product, it derives from an animal.
Dairy products are a contributing cause of leukemia in young American children. Leukemia used to be a disease indicative of Caucasians, but we have recently seen an increase in the African-American population because they are consuming more dairy products than before.
Normally, ice cream is derived from a female animal. Most female animals in America are injected with synthetic chemical hormones to make the cows develop faster. Therefore, ice cream is laced with synthetic hormones that greatly affect the female and male hormonal system. These chemical hormones can cause female reproductive area cancers in human females.
If the chemical hormones of synthetic estrogen make the female cow grow bigger and develop faster, what do you think it does to young American girls who love to eat ice cream? These little young American girls are walking around at age 8, 9 and 10 with fully developed breasts and buttocks, something you didn’t see in the 1950s, 1960s and early 1970s. The chemical food industry is responsible for this development.
Not only does ice cream contain harmful chemical growth hormones, but it also consists of a lot of other chemical additives that are injurious to health.
Did you know that many conventional and commercial brands of ice cream contain the same ingredient that is used in anti-freeze solution for cars? Propylene glycol is being used as an ingredient in many ice creams and cupcakes.
Other additives found in ice cream include Piperonal, which is used in place of vanilla. Piperonal is also a chemical that is used to treat lice. Diethyl glucol is a cheap chemical used as an emulsifier instead of eggs. It can also be found in antifreeze and paint removers. Butyraldehyde is used in nut-flavored ice cream and is one of the ingredients in rubber cement. Amyl acetate is a chemical used for banana flavor. However, it is also used as an oil paint solvent. Ethyl acetate is used for pineapple flavor and is mainly used as a cleaner for leather and textiles. Aldehyde C17 is a chemical used to flavor cherry ice cream but is used as a inflammable liquid used in aniline dyes, plastic and rubber.
Ice cream is sweet because of the number one and most addictive drug in the world – sugar! And the dairy industry is very clever and has learned how to hide sugar ingredients. Various forms of synthetic chemical sugars and sweeteners can be found under such umbrella terms as:
And if you didn’t know, saccharin and aspartame can cause cancer. These chemical artificial sweeteners are carcinogenic and can cause cancer.
Ice cream, like all other dairy products is fattening. It is impossible to have a fat-free dairy product. Low fat and nonfat products have fat in them. You can’t believe everything that the food industry claims.
Remember, sugar converts into fat in the human body and is stored in the fatty reserves, including the buttocks, breasts, thighs, belly, and back arms. Many people talk about losing weight and the easiest way to do so is to avoid eating certain foods. If you are having difficulty with the willpower, discipline, self-love, or fortitude, you may be dealing with emotional blockage or spiritual imbalance.
If you eat conventional and commercial brands of ice cream, you should read the ingredients on the label and take notice of anything that can be hazardous to your health.
I am not suggesting that we need to completely avoid eating ice cream. I am just suggesting that we should be more aware of what we’re putting into our bodies. Ice cream is an American staple that does not need to be avoided, but limited in quantity.
There are many healthy nondairy alternatives to conventional ice creams.
Most health food stores carry a host of nondairy brands of ice cream that are far better and safer than regular dairy-based ice cream.
Alternative nondairy brands of ice cream include Rice Dream, Soy Dream, Carb Escapes, Freezees, Soy Delicious, Whole Soy, Tofutti, Natural Choice, and Sweet Nothings. Many different flavors are available under these brands. Whether you enjoy ice cream, sorbet, fruit bars or fudge bars, there are alternatives out there for you.
However, although these brands are nondairy, you should still read the labels for questionable ingredients, especially for the sugars. Rice Dream, Carb Escapes, Freezees, Soy Dream, and Soy Delicious seem to have the best ingredients, including sweeteners. However, Natural Choice uses evaporated sugar in their sorbet, Whole Soy uses organic sugar, and Tofutti also contains a questionable sweetener. However, compared to the real thing, these brands are much healthier and ideal for the health conscious consumer and vegan.
Ice cream is a treat that can be enjoyed as a delight or reward for special occasions. In regards to your health, you should not indulge in treats such as ice cream every day.
You would be wise to start reserving your special delights or sweet treats for the weekend, rather than engaging in them every single day during the week. Give yourself something to look forward to. That ice cream isn’t going anywhere!
