Pet Food Recalls

The pet food recalls continue. The best "wholistic" suggestion to prevent danger to your pet is — STOP feeding dry kibble dog food. In our "wholistic" opinion, dry kibble dog food is the least nutritious form of food to feed a carnivore. Furthermore, a majority of all pet food recalls is with dry food. Canned food, freeze-dried food and raw food have a much lower percentage of recalls. For the latest recalls, go to:

Dog Food Recalls or FDA website

The #1 weed killer, glyphosate (a.k.a. Monsanto’s Roundup®), is so potent that new research shows probable harm to human health could begin at ultra-low levels of glyphosate, as low as  0.1 parts per billions (ppb). A FDA-registered food safety laboratory tested the above iconic American foods for residues of the weed killer glyphosate (a.k.a. Monsanto’s Roundup®) and found FRIGHTENING high amounts (from 9.9 to 1,125.3 ppb). Here are just some of the processed food ingredients that may contain the weed killer glyphosate (a.k.a. Monsanto’s Roundup®): corn, cornstarch, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), dextrose, fructose, glucose, soy, soy protein, soy isolates, canola oil, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, inositol, isoflavones, maltodextrin, modified food starch, monosodium glutamate (MSG), cottonseed oil, sorbitol, starch, vegetable oil, xanthan gum. For a more detailed list of GMO ingredients that could contain glyphosate (a.k.a. Monsanto’s Roundup®) in your food, read our March, 2010, newsletter:

Are GMOs Bad?

Why are these high amounts of glyphosate in our food alarming? Do you suffer from any type of endocrine imbalance (glandular imbalance involving the adrenals, thyroid, pituitary, pineal, hypothalamus, etc.)? Do you have any unexplained growths (tumors)? Do you have any digestive issues that might be related to deficient beneficial gut bacteria? Do you know of anyone with cancer? Read the suspected connection between the weed killer glyphosate (a.k.a. Monsanto’s Roundup®) and the above health issues in the following link from NEXUS Newsfeed:

You can read the test results and full report, GLYPHOSATE: UNSAFE ON ANY PLATE, by Food Democracy Now! and The Detox Project at:

Glyphosate Food Testing Report PDF

In addition to suspected cancer links, one of the most disturbing connections is glyphosate’s ability to damage cellular DNA, the building block of new cells. If new cells do not have the proper DNA signature to replicate, no wonder so many turn out to be cancer cells. How can you protect your, your children’s and your pets’ bodies from this cellular damage? Here are three holistic suggestions.

  1. Do not use Monsanto’s Roundup® in your yard or garden, especially if you have children and/or pets. Use more natural means to control weeds and pests.
  2. Do not buy any food products with the above ingredients unless they are certified GMO-free. Eat only organically-grown vegetables and fruits whenever possible.
  3. Take or give bio-algae concentrates (BioSuperfood for people, BioPreparation for pets) to supply super nutrition to all your body’s cells, especially the brain. Bio-algae concentrates research shows, this may allow the proper DNA (non-cancerous) signature to be replicated in new cells, thus not only balancing the entire endocrine and immune systems but the entire body.

Bio-algae concentrates have antioxidants (super nutrients for the brain) that can actually cross the blood/brain barrier. Dr. Michael Kiriac says, “If one can nutritionally influence the brain, the rest is a no-brainer.” Here are the many “wholistic” ways bio-algae concentrates’ nutrition can help balance the body:

  1. The antioxidants in bio-algae concentrates may neutralize free radical cells your body accumulates during normal daily activity.
  2. Because they are so abundant, these antioxidants may also neutralize the free radicals created by the air, water and chemical pollutants we are exposed to daily in our environment.
  3. By nourishing and balancing ALL the glands in the brain, one may be able to normalize the reproductive DNA signature in new replicating cells, so that their cancer switch is NOT turned on.
  4. By feeding and balancing ALL the glands and organs of the WHOLE body at the cellular level, the body’s endocrine, immune, lymphatic, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, elimination, etc. systems will function at optimal levels, thus minimizing cellular DNA damage that may be caused by harmful chemical food preservatives, petrochemicals, synthetic molecules and weed killers, such as Roundup®.

With so much pollution in our air and water, chemical preservatives and artificial coloring in our food, toxic weed BioPreparationkillers such as Roundup® in our environment and now food supply, it only makes sense to take or give bio-algae concentrates (BioSuperfood for people, BioPreparation for pets), Nature’s own superfood for true “wholistic” Freedom From Illness. BioSuperfood and BioPreparation are whole superfood products (like oranges and salmon) that nourish and balance ALL the glands and organs of the WHOLE body, NOT isolated supplements (like a Vitamin C pill or fish oil capsule) that just treats the symptoms. Read our past newsletter article on Algae for Immunity.

While there is not conclusive scientific proof yet that GMO ingredients and weed killer glyphosate (a.k.a. Monsanto’s Roundup®) are totally bad and cancer-causing, here are some sobering facts:

  1. Pet food manufacturers can use grains unfit for human consumption. Grains in pet food are, therefore, more NO dry kibblelikely to contain toxic molds, pesticides, herbicides (such as glyphosate, a.k.a. Monsanto’s Roundup®) and man-made contaminants (such as melamine) than grains for human consumption.
  2. Nearly 50 percent of natural deaths in older cats and dogs are attributed to cancer. (Morris Animal Foundation Study, January 25, 2005). In humans, one in three people will get cancer and 25% of all deaths are cancer related.
  3. Lipomas (fatty tumors) in People and Lipomas (fatty tumors) in Pets are our two most highly searched web pages.
  4. Our Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) web page is also highly found in search engine.

We holistically feel the reason why our pets' health statistics are worse than people's is because their bodies are smaller and their foods contain a higher concentration of toxins and GMO ingredients. Plus, because of their shorter life span they have had more generations eating GMO ingredients, thus showing possible future genetic damage. If you want to see what the health of your children and subsequent generations might look like, look to your pets' health today. You be the judge as to how much "scientific proof" is necessary before you take holistic measures for yourself, your children and your pets (furry children).
