Is your “healthy breakfast” making you sick?

If you enjoy Total Blueberry Pomegranate cereal for breakfast, you would think that you are eating healthy. All those yummy, good for you natural antioxidants: blueberries and pomegranates. But if you look closely at the ingredients list you will find NO REAL BLUEBERRIES AND NO REAL POMEGRANATE inside your cereal box. Instead you will find red #40, blue #2 and other artificial colors, which are known to trigger hyperactivity, restlessness, and attention problems in some children – especially in kids with ADHD. Furthermore, some studies indicate that both dyes: red #40 and blue #2 can cause cancer in animals.

Please watch this video and judge for yourself.

  1. Thanks for sharing this Galina! The video is very powerful and makes me even more passionate about eating raw and organic.

  2. Sorry for commenting “off topic”, but there wasn’t a comment area for:
    “Can Ice Cream Cause Ulcers?” @
    http://knowyourgut.com/can-ice-cream-cause-ulcers/

    After many ER & Dr visits, numerous CTs, 2 colonoscopies, and an Ultrasound, my 3rd GI (not even my actual GI, but filling in for my 2nd GI) listened to my comment about how I thought it sounded crazy, but after all kinds of self-rule-out diets, the only pattern I consistently noticed was commercial foods – specifically sauced foods and premade dinners.

    He answered that he didn’t think it sounded crazy at all – that he himself suffered from food-additive sensitivities. I needed to eat completely natural, whole foods for a few days to see if the gut-attacks stopped, then challenged myself slowly with commercial foods, recording ingredients/additives of foods that triggered my burning/painful/inflamed attacks.

    I’m guessing it took 1-2 months before I caught onto carrageenan; since this happened about18-24 months ago, there was a handful of carrageenan articles, blog and forum posts, but it seemed that most stuff I found about carrageenan were from sufferers like myself, not experts with experience. Oh, there were a few “professional-looking” articles (not by medical/science professionals though) about how such and such tests ruled out carrageenan as being that dangerous.

    Are there any medical or lab tests to confirm carrageenan sensitivities?

    Well since I feel bad about commenting off-topic, I found the cereal in this post on Amazon, and 5 out of 7 reviewers were bashing GM’s cereal ^_^

  3. Hi Shreela,
    I found 1 lab in Canada which can test for carrageenan sensitivity. Here is the link: https://www.food-intolerance.ca/get-tested/food-tested/en/
