Beetle Juice

Unbeknownst to many individuals, when they drink certain beverages that have a reddish or dark orange tint to it, chances are they are drinking beetle or bug juice. https://www.dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg
The cochineal beetle is a small insect that lives on the prickly pear cactus plants in Central and South America. The female beetles feed off the red cactus berries and store the red color in their bodies. This dye is called carmine and it can be removed to color various products.

History

The Aztecs successfully cultivated cochineal insects for thousands of years. They managed to create larger species that produced brighter shades of red. It was initially used for medicine, pain, and cosmetics. The red dye became very desirable in the Middle East where it was used for textiles and carpets. Today, Peru is the world's largest producer of cochineal but it can also be found in South Africa, Chile, Bolivia, and the Canary Islands.

In the 1970s, after research found that synthetic red dyes-especially red dye #2 and E123-were connected to cancer, ADD, asthma and hyperactivity, natural red dyes such as carmine gained popularity.

Uses

It has been added to many processed foods such as candy, ice cream, yogurt, puddings, cookies, cherries, fruit juice, and liquor due to its bright coloring.

Cosmetics that are colored primarily pink, red, or brown may contain traces of cochineal. Cochineal can be mixed with other natural colorings to produce a wide range of colors.

Beetle Juice is considered non-toxic and a safe alternative to synthetic dyes. The US Food and Drug Administration requires products using carmine to label appropriately, as some people are allergic to it.

Since it's derived from a living being, products using cochineal or carmine are NOT vegan, vegetarian or Kosher. An friendly alternative is lycopene, the red pigment extracted from tomatoes.

    Q: I heard about Hoodia on the TODAY show on NBC. It's supposed to suppress your appetite for weight loss. I have printed wikepedia for a more formal definition. It's supposed to be natural. Hoodia is a genus of 13 species in the flowering plant family Apocynaceae, under the subfamily Asclepiadoideae. [1] They are stem succulents, described as "cactiform" because of their remarkable similarity to the unrelated cactus family. They can reach up to 1mhigh and have large flowers, often with flesh colour and strong smell. Many Hoodia species are protected plants, typical of the Namib Desert, ranging from Central Namibia to southern Angola, especially in plains and rocky areas. Common names include "Bushman's Hat" and "Queen of the Namib". Several species are grown as garden plants, and one species, Hoodia gordonii, is being investigated for use as an appetite suppressant.

    A:

    Suppression is not cure or healing! You can't solve a problem by suppressing it! A suppressed appetite will manifest in some other area, i.e., an enormous appetite for sex, shopping, drugs, etc. Just because a thing is natural doesn't mean you are addressing the root of the problem, Beloved! It's much deeper than suppressing!

Consumer Reports Finds All Ground Beef 'Potentially' Loaded with Fecal Matter

Tests recently conducted by Consumer Reports found that rare or medium-rare ground beef (cooked at under 160° F) pose serious food poisoning health risks for consumers in virtually all cases.

“All meat potentially contains bacteria that—if not destroyed by proper cooking—can cause food poisoning, but some meats are more risky than others,” Consumer Reports states on its website. “Beef, and especially ground beef, has a combination of qualities that can make it particularly problematic—and the consequences of eating tainted beef can be severe.”
