Many Processed Foods Are Made With A Coal Tar Derivative Chemical That Causes Hyperactivity In Children
February 17th, 2012
By: Mike Adams
Would you knowingly feed your children an ingredient derived from coal tar? That’s exactly what you may be doing, if you let them eat any orange or yellow artificially-colored products including sodas, cheese-flavored products, flavored chips, pickles or a myriad of other foods and beverages. The industrial waste-derived coloring chemicaltartrazineis a common ingredient in all these foods, underscoring the need to read food labels religiously. (Why would anyone put artificial colors into pickles? Read the labels, and you’ll see!)
Tartrazine, also known as E102 or Yellow #5, was one of the colorings linked to childhood hyperactivity in a landmark 2007 study conducted by the United Kingdom’sFood Standards Agency. As a consequence, products containing it must carry a warning label anywhere in the European Union.
Not surprisingly, the United States has no such law — even though the coloring has been linked to asthma, migraines and cancer. But since when the FDA ever bother warning the public about dangerous chemicals in their food anyway? After all, aspartame, MSG and sodium nitrite are all legal — so why not add a little food coloring poison to the cocktail and call it “nutrition?”

Shopping centres have triggered a Big Brother row after installing equipment that allows them to track customers using their mobile phone signals.
The technology has raised privacy concerns after it emerged that major shopping centre owner Land Securities has installed it at ten of Britain’s biggest malls.
These include the giant Cabot Circus, Bristol; Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth; Princesshay, Exeter; Buchanan Galleries, Glasgow; Bon Accord & St Nicholas, Aberdeen; and The Centre, Livingston.
A tiny yellow sign in Exeter’s Princesshay shopping centre is the only warning customers receive that their mobile phone signal is being ‘tracked’ by Footpath’s scanners. There is no way to opt out except not to enter or to turn off your mobile
Path Intelligence, which developed the system in the UK, said it includes safeguards to prevent spying on individuals and that no personal information is collected.
Rather, it is designed to track people’s movements to better understand what shops and services they find most interesting or useful.
However, most shoppers are completely in the dark about the tracking technology, and the only way to escape it is to turn off the mobile phone.

The consequences of a “credible and specific” warning that terrorists were planning to blow up bridges or tunnels on the anniversary of 9/11 turned into a police state showcase and ended in a farce when fighter jets were scrambled as a response to people visiting airplane bathrooms.
Following days of endless fearmongering prompted by a “reliable source” who provided “uncorroborated” information that Al-Qaeda was planning to strike this weekend, we were saturated with images of police brazenly violating the 4th amendment by conducting sweeping vehicle and bag searches, national guard troops with guns, and random checkpoints, all serving as a reminder that the terrorists really did win.
But what became of the deadly terror plot? Was the attempt foiled by the suffocating but necessary “security” procedures?
“Fighter planes were scrambled, bomb squads were called, FBI command centers went on alert and police teams raced to airports today, but in the end two separate airline incidents were caused by apparently innocent bathroom breaks and a little “making out,” federal officials said,” reports ABC News.
F-16 fighter jets were scrambled to follow a Frontier Airlines flight from Denver to Detroit after reports that three passengers, two men and a woman, were acting “suspiciously” and spending lengthy amounts of time in the bathroom.
After landing in Detroit, police stormed the plane with guns drawn and ordered everybody to put their heads down and their hands on the seat in front of them.
“The policeman said everybody remain seated. Everyone remains seated. If you get out of your seats you will be taken care of quickly,” said Marilyn Dietrick,” reports ABC 7.
Passengers were then ordered off the plane without their belongings and forced to undergo FBI questioning while bomb-sniffing dogs searched their luggage.
“No one was hurt and so far no one has been placed under arrest. All of the detained passengers, including the three who were first taken off the plane, have been released,” reports ABC 7.
It turned out that the “suspicious behavior” was two people “making out” in the bathroom mid-flight, law enforcement sources told ABC News.”
In another incident, two fighter jets were scrambled to escort an American Airlines jet into New York’s JFK airport. Again, the “suspicious behavior” that prompted the alert comprised of passengers visiting the restroom.
So the serious and sober terror alert that provoked thousands of headlines and a multi-million dollar security response, while of course presenting the perfect opportunity to reinforce the police state by invoking 9/11, culminated in nothing more than an almighty freak out in response to a few people eager to use the bathroom.
The whole farce underscores the fact that the terrorists have won. The goal of terror is to fundamentally change society so that the population alters their behavior and willingly relinquishes their freedom through fear. By exploiting the threat of terrorism to provoke fear, the federal government has achieved this objective.
The fact that Americans are more likely to die from intestinal illnesses, accident-causing deer, and allergic reactions to peanuts than they are in terrorist attacks is buried amidst all the panic and hand-wringing about deadly plots that never come to fruition, but do serve to justify the bloated Homeland Security state that has swallowed up America in the drive for profit and control.
This is why military-industrial complex publications like National Defense have openly expressed the need to maintain “fear and an unrealistic American perception of risk” regarding terrorist attacks in order to drive up profits.
This can only be accomplished with the complicity of the establishment media, who are certain to hype more dubious terror alerts, which former DHS head Tom Ridge admitted were faked and exaggerated for political purposes, in order to generate the kind of hysteria that leads to visits to the bathroom being characterized as suspicious and terror-related.

The Raw Story
The US government on Tuesday unveiled a new set of cigarette warnings with graphic images of a lifeless body, a scarred mouth and a blackened lung in order to highlight the health risks of smoking.
“Beginning September 2012, FDA will require larger, more prominent cigarette health warnings on all cigarette packaging and advertisements in the United States,” the US Food and Drug Administration said on its website.
The warnings, which can be seen at fda.gov/cigarettewarnings, mark the first change in cigarette warnings in more than 25 years and are “a significant advancement in communicating the dangers of smoking,” the agency added.
One of the images, which shows an apparently dead man with his chest sewn up, bears the caption “Warning: Smoking can kill you.” According to the FDA, smoking kills 1,200 people a day in the United States alone.
Another picture shows a close-up on a mouth filled with scattered, brown teeth and a lip with an open sore, warning: “Cigarettes cause cancer.”
Smoking causes 90 percent of all lung cancer in men and 80 percent in women, and has been linked to several other cancers, according to the FDA.
The new warnings also seek to warn pregnant women and new parents of the dangers of smoking, with a drawn image showing a premature baby in a hospital incubator and a picture showing a real baby staring at a plume of smoke.
The warnings will occupy the top 50 percent of the front and rear panels of cigarette packs and the top 20 percent of cigarette advertisements.
“The introduction of these warnings is expected to have a significant public health impact by decreasing the number of smokers, resulting in lives saved, increased life expectancy, and lower medical costs,” the website said.
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is to formally announce the new warnings later on Tuesday.

In violation of federal law, the popular eyelash-enhancing drug Latisse is being widely sold without a prescription — with no one warning customers that the drug could turn their eyelids purple or permanently stain their irises brown.
Manufacturer Allergan originally developed the drug under the name Lumigan, as an eyedrop treatment for glaucoma. When the company discovered that the drug carried a side effect of making eyelashes darker, fuller and longer, it applied for and received permission to market the drug for that use as well.
Since Latisse’s approval in 2009, the drug has gained a wide following, earning Allergan $73.7 million in its first year alone. Now the drug is easily purchased online and is regularly sold at salons without a doctor’s supervision.
“If it was completely safe to use without doctor supervision, they would have deemed it over-the-counter,” warned Carmen A. Catizone, the executive director of the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy.
Well-known side effects of the drug include growing hair in undesired places (if a patient accidentally brushes their cheek with the applicator), painful ingrown lashes that can scratch the cornea, redness, itching, irritation and permanent discoloration of the iris.
Another, less-known, side effect is Latisse’s ability to stain the eyelids purple both above and below the eyes.
Cynthia O’Connor of Minneapolis said that she purchased Latisse from the person who does her facials. Although the practice operates out of a plastic surgeon’s office, O’Connor never saw a doctor, was not asked her medical history and was not warned of any side effects. She discontinued the drug after a “very dark purply” discoloration appeared on her eyelids and under her eyes.
“It looked like I hadn’t slept in a month,” she said. “It was horrible.”
Five months later, he skin color had not yet fully returned to normal.
“Let’s say you use the product once inappropriately, or outside the approved guidelines, you might get away with it,” said Andrew G. Iwach of the Glaucoma Center. “But this drug is being applied repeatedly over weeks, months and potentially years. The consequences, or risk of consequences, add up over time.”

Economists peddling dire warnings that the world’s number one economy is on the brink of collapse, amid high rates of unemployment and a spiraling public deficit, are flourishing here.
The guru of this doomsday line of thinking may be economist Nouriel Roubini, thrust into the forefront after predicting the chaos wrought by the subprime mortgage crisis and the collapse of the housing bubble.
But other economists, who have so far stayed out of the media limelight, are also proselytizing nightmarish visions of the future.
Boston University professor Laurence Kotlikoff, who warned as far back as the 1980s of the dangers of a public deficit, lent credence to such dark predictions in an International Monetary Fund publication last week.
He unveiled a doomsday scenario — which many dismiss as pure fantasy — of an economic clash between superpowers the United States and China, which holds more than 843 billion dollars of US Treasury bonds.
Kotlikoff warned such a move would spark a run on banks and money market funds as well as insurance companies as policy holders cash in their surrender values.
“In a short period of time, the Federal Reserve would have to print trillions of dollars to cover its explicit and implicit guarantees. All that new money could produce strong inflation, perhaps hyperinflation,” he said.
“There are other less apocalyptic, perhaps more plausible, but still quite unpleasant, scenarios that could result from multiple equilibria.”
According to a poll by the StrategyOne Institute published Friday, some 65 percent of Americans believe there will be a new recession.
“It is true: Today’s economic problems are structural, not cyclical,” argued New York Times editorial writer David Brooks.
He said the United Sates is losing its world dominance much in the same way the British Empire began to crumble more than a century ago.
“We are in the middle of yet another jobless recovery. Wages have been lagging for decades. Our labor market woes are deep and intractable,” Brooks said.
Nobel Economics Prize winner Paul Krugman also voiced concern about the fate of the fragile economic recovery if voters return the Republicans to political power.
“It’s hard to overstate how destructive the economic ideas offered earlier this week by John Boehner, the House minority leader, would be if put into practice,” he wrote in a recent editorial.
“Fewer jobs and bigger deficits — the perfect combination.”
The Wall Street Journal, usually more favorable to Boehner’s call for tax cuts, ran a commentary from another Nobel Prize-winning economist — Vernon Smith — that failed to provide much comfort for readers.
“This fact needs to be confronted: We are almost surely in for a long slog,” Smith wrote.
And it seems such pessimism has even filtered into the IMF, which warned on Friday that high levels of national debt and a still shaky financial sector threaten to derail the global economic recovery.
“The foreclosure backlog in US property markets is large and growing, in part due to the recent expiration of the home buyer’s tax credit. When realized, this could further depress real estate prices.”
This could lead to “disproportionate losses” for small and medium-sized banks, which could in turn “precipitate a loss of market confidence in the recovery,” the IMF warned.

The world will run out of oil surpluses by 2012, with severe shortages following as little as three years later, a U.S. military report has warned.
“By 2012, surplus oil production capacity could entirely disappear, and as early as 2015, the shortfall in output could reach nearly 10 million barrels per day,” reads the report from the U.S. Joint forces command.
“One should not forget that the Great Depression spawned a number of totalitarian regimes that sought economic prosperity for their nations by ruthless conquest.”
The point at which oil consumption exceeds production is known as “peak oil,” and is predicted to lead to widespread turmoil in the world’s oil-dependent economies.
“Such an economic slowdown would exacerbate other unresolved tensions [and] push fragile and failing states further down the path toward collapse,” the report reads.
Although new warnings continue to emerge that peak oil is imminent, the U.S. Department of Energy continues to insist that there is no need to fear oil shortage.
“It’s surprising to see that the U.S. Army, unlike the U.S. Department of Energy, publicly warns of major oil shortages in the near-term,” said post-graduate peak oil researcher Lionel Badal of Kings College London.
“The Energy Information Administration [EIA] has been saying for years that Peak Oil was ‘decades away.’ In light of the report from the US Joint Forces Command, is the EIA still confident of its previous highly optimistic conclusions?”
Recently, the Obama administration’s top oil adviser admitted in an interview with a French paper that “a chance exists” of a liquid fuels production decline between 2011 and 2015.
The U.S. army is believed to be the world’s single largest consumer of petroleum fuel. Recently Tony Hayward, CEO of petroleum giant BP, suggested that the military’s reliance on oil is a major reason that there will be no ban on extraction and burning of petroleum from Canada’s tar sands, one of the dirtiest fossil fuel sources on earth.

The Department of Homeland Security is alerting Texas authorities to be on the lookout for a suspected member of the Somalia-based Al Shabaab terrorist group who might be attempting to travel to the U.S. through Mexico, a security expert who has seen the memo tells FOXNews.com.
The warning follows an indictment unsealed this month in Texas federal court that accuses a Somali man in Texas of running a “large-scale smuggling enterprise” responsible for bringing hundreds of Somalis from Brazil through South America and eventually across the Mexican border. Many of the illegal immigrants, who court records say were given fake IDs, are alleged to have ties to other now-defunct Somalian terror organizations that have merged with active organizations like Al Shabaab, al-Barakat and Al-Ittihad Al-Islami.
In 2008, the U.S. government designated Al Shabaab a terrorist organization. Al Shabaab has said its priority is to impose Sharia, or Islamic law, on Somalia; the group has aligned itself with Al Qaeda and has made statements about its intent to harm the United States.
In recent years, American Somalis have been recruited by Al Shabaab to travel to Somalia, where they are often radicalized by more extremist or operational anti-American terror groups, which Al Shabaab supports. The recruiters coming through the Mexican border are the ones who could be the most dangerous, according to law enforcement officials.
Security experts tell FOXNews.com that the influx of hundreds of Somalis over the U.S. border who allegedly have ties to suspected terror cells is evidence of a porous and unsecured border being exploited by groups intent on wrecking deadly havoc on American soil.
