The pet food recalls continue.
FDA Alert: Certain Lots of Pet Food from Multiple
Brands Recalled for Aflatoxin. From the FDA website:
specific pet food products manufactured by Sunshine Mills under several
brand names, may contain unsafe levels of aflatoxin. Aflatoxin is produced
by the Aspergillus flavus mold, which can grow on corn and other grains. At
high levels, aflatoxin can cause illness and death in pets. Symptoms may
include sluggishness, loss of appetite, vomiting, jaundice (yellowish tint
to the eyes or gums due to liver damage), and/or diarrhea. In severe cases,
this toxicity can be fatal. In some cases, pets may suffer liver damage but
not show any symptoms. Brands include, Family Pet Meaty Cuts®, Heartland
Farms®, Champ®, Field Trial®, Good Dog, Hunter’s Special®, Old Glory®, Paws
Happy Life®, Pet Expert, Principle, Retriever®, River Bend, Sportsman’s
Pride®, Sprout®, Thrifty®, Top Runner® or Whiskers & Tails. For a complete
list, with Lot Numbers, go to the FDA web page:

Voluntary Recall of Certain Pet Food Products Due to Potentially Elevated
Levels of Aflatoxin.
Want to avoid all these recalls? The best "wholistic"
suggestion to prevent
danger to your pet is -- STOP feeding dry kibble pet food. In our
"wholistic" opinion, dry kibble pet food containing
grains is the least nutritious form of
food to feed a carnivore. It is nutritionally equivalent to feeding
meat-flavored cookies to your child. 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:

Research has shown
that absorption and utilization of nutrients from laboratory-made,
isolated supplements is only 15-25%. The
rest of the benefits and your money is flushed down the toilet (or pooped
out by your pet). On the other hand, absorption and utilization of nutrients
from whole food products (like
oranges, salmon and algae) is 90-95%. After a while being on our whole
superfood products (depending on one's diet, how nutrient deficient they are
and their health condition), some clients get to a point of
balance where they can realize true "wholistic",
whole food benefits. At this point, some of our clients have been able to
save money and simplify their life by eliminating inefficient
and not needed isolated supplements. So, what is the first step in
determining how to do this?
We suggest looking at
the multivitamins and general overall isolated supplements taken for no one
specific symptom or reason. For example, supplements mentioned in a magazine
review, media ad, recommended by a friend or one for all seniors. They may
come highly recommended, have a great media ad, claim to include top-grade
ingredients but are they really helpful? Are they 90-95% absorbed and
efficient like our whole superfood products? Try decreasing your daily
amount by 25% for 1-2 weeks. If you do not notice any difference, then
decrease by another 25% the second 1-2 weeks. Keep decreasing until you have
eliminated it altogether. How do you feel after 1-2 months? Notice any
difference in your symptoms,
sleep habits, ability to handle stress, etc.? Here are some
One year later I
contracted Chronic Fatigue
Syndrome (CFS) and have suffered for the last 7 years. I had to
leave the convent twice because the CFS symptoms were so bad. My doctors
thought they had it all figured it out with chiropractor care, supplements
and thyroid medication but no, I had a meltdown 1 year ago and had to leave
the convent again. A Sister in the convent was using bio-algae concentrates
to eliminate tumors on our German Shepherds. It worked so well she suggested
I try balancing my body too. My CFS symptoms included extreme fatigue,
bodily heaviness, labored breathing, ‘flu-like’ symptoms, pain and being
depressed all the time. I have been taking
BioSuperfood-f3 for 9
months now. Nothing has given me what this stuff (BioSuperfood-f3) has done.
After spending a ton of money on supplements with only partial results, I
take nothing else now but BioSuperfood-f3, not even my
thyroid medication. I was at 20%
functionality when I started BioSuperfood-f3 and now I feel I am at 80%.
Thank you so much and thank God!!! May God Bless you abundantly.
Since I started
taking BioSuperfood, I
have dropped all 23 supplements and use only BioSuperfood; I have not been
sick at all, not one bit! No cold, no flu and best, neither has my wife
Linda; I have loss 35lbs without effort; On Sunday Dec. 5th, in lovely
Tucson AZ, I completed my first Marathon run (26.2 miles), a goal envisioned
when I was 17 yrs old; I have no more chronic back pain; A good tangible
result is my skin carotenoid count of 62,000 taken with the Pharmanex
bioscan laser - this high count helps explains why I have had no cold or
flu. I often tell people "BioSuperfood is a supplement that energizes
the body, the brain, the mood and the spirit". That line sums up well my
personal experience with BioSuperfood. In ending, I will borrow a line from
a friend; "BioSuperfood ... LIFE for LIFE"
