Why is Titanium Dioxide in our Food?October 3, 2012
How does a retired 67 year-old professional photographer become the Internet researcher?
I think it was a sense of injustice regarding the events of 9/11, the 7/7 London bombings in other world events they do not have the ring of truth to them.
I was born and raised in India and became a British citizen when my parents left India in 1949 returning to Britain. We were all part of of the British Diaspora living in far-flung lands.
Part of my early schooling was in England.I arrived back in England, aged four and not speaking the word of English for my native tongue having been brought up by servants in India was Urdu.
The culture shock to my system was terrific, the poverty in post-war Britain exceeded what we had known in India.
Because my father was serving British officer and doctor, the rest of my education matched his postings abroad in Singapore Hong Kong and Libya.
I arrived in Australia in 1969, after a three-year period working as a professional photographer in New Zealand. I continued my career as a photographer until 1986 when I made the transition into sales and marketing within the photographic industry.
From 1990 I worked as a consultant in the exhibition and Internet industries.
This was drastically reduced by a fall off a step ladder in 2001 and its consequential effects upon my career.
Since then and every Christmas season I have been an in-store Santa, this has left me with plenty of time to pursue other interests of renovation and research. During one Christmas season,a family came to visit Santa as they done so for many years previously.
However this year it was different, because one of their children, a little girl aged about seven was in the children's hospital.
Their request to Santa that year was simple "Santa can we please have my sister/daughter/grandchild back?"
The little child died later from cancer. Had Santa failed his charter?
The confusion from that request still rings in my ears! Sometime,somehow I would make sense of all this.
But I did not imagine that I would arrive at a point where,like a fool on hill, I perceived a monstrous conspiracy towards humanity was taking place. This is the reason for my research

itanium Dioxide is only one of the many food additives that are harmful. There are more than 3000 additives and preservatives that can be found in processed foods. However, there is a new threat that cannot always be seen. It's genetically modified organisms.
Plant and animal DNA are being manipulated for various reasons; everything from quicker growth http://www.salmonnation.com/fish/gefish.html to the ability to withstand heavy doses of herbicides http://naturalsociety.com/monsantos-roundup-cause-birth-defects/
Scientists in France have recently conducted a study on rats which were exclusively fed GM corn. http://www.france24.com/en/20120919-france-orders-probe-after-rat-study-links-gm-corn-cancer The rats, over their two year life span developed liver and kidney damage and grossly huge tumors. Female rats were affected in a greater percentage than male rats.
Most meats you find in a store are from animals which were fed GM grains. They are also given mass quantities of antibiotics to help control infections they contract while living in confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs).
Your best bet is to eat locally, organically grown whole foods. Shop your farmer's markets and country produce stands. Get to know the folks who raise and grow the meats, dairy items, and produce you buy. Ask them what they use when raising their product.
Also, read the labels on the prepared food you buy. "Natural" doesn't necessarily mean healthy. In order for a product to carry the organic label the manufacturer has to meet a certain standard. There are many benefits to doing this.
You support your local economy instead of sending your money to the big agriculture industry. (Search "Monsanto"). You know what's in your food. It tastes better and it's more nutritious.
Learn to cook and take time to prepare nice, healthy meals. Slow down and make mealtime a family affair. http://www.slowfood.com/ Teach your children how to grow a garden or raise an animal for food. Let them help you in the kitchen. Can, dehydrate, freeze and ferment your own food. (I fermented a batch of crock pickles this summer. Yummy! Gonna try making some sauerkraut next.)
The more you're connected with your food the more you'll appreciate the good and natural things God has given to us.
Dear Henry a number of years ago I attended a factory seminar for contractors at the Benjamin Moore paint factory in Johnstown, NY. One of the lectures was about the contents of a quality paint, the number one ingredient that separated a good paint from a cheap paint was titanium dioxide. This powder helps give the hide for the masking of the underlying color. The higher the percentage of titanium the better, yet this is the most expensive part of the paint because of the strength and whiteness of the powder. This is also used in coffee mate for the same effect. But if this is an expensive ingredient in paint, is that also the case for food?
Funny how Gods foods come with no labels, but man has to mess with the natural foods and add all sorts of ingredients, put it in a can or a box and print a label on it. Then most people don't even bother to read it anyway. I think this article will prompt similar interest in the other unhealthy food additives! Great topic, a quick simple untechnical overview and well written.
and there is a big difference between the nanotech form of titanium dioxide and the natural form.... people need to beware of anything nanotech. more of the nanotech version is being used in products offered on the market, including suntan protection products. Many "green" SPF producers are refusing to use the nanotech titanium dioxide in their lotions.
Blaming Titanium oxide for causing cancer, kidney disease, asthma is based upon all the rest of faulty science that does all it can to rip the mind away from the body. The two cannot be separated and that is why medical research will never find the causes to the vast majority of chronic illness. And this is why it also finds nearly every substance known to cause health problems.
I was employed in livestock nutrition for a decade and formulated livestock feeds for poultry, swine, horses, cattle, sheep, goats, guinea pigs, rabbits and even ostrich feeds. Never once was titanium oxide used or even considered. From my point of view, farm animals eat better that most humans. Good nutrition is profitable for farmers, its not so profitable for the medical industrial complex.
As far as its used as an adjunct for the use energy directed weapons, I don't know.
If Titanium Dioxide is a carcinogen, why are women who have worn foundation makeups for decades containing this white pigment not showing signs of cancer all over their faces? Surely, if true, there would be an outbreak of facial cancer in women worldwide of incredible proportions. Why aren't artists who use this pigment daily coming down with cancer? Brie cheese is coated with TiO2. Do the French have higher rates of stomach cancer? I've not heard of it.
Most of this electromagnetic stuff on the web is BS. I do believe that cell phones may cause cancer and that their may be directed energy weapons, but as someone with a degree in engineering and a particular interest in electromagnetics I can tell you most of these people espousing powers or conspiracies regarding EM stuff are wrong, I cannot say an idiot from a mental institution yelling about the worlds end tomorrow is wrong either - and a broken clock is right twice every day. But to ramble on about something they know nothing about is to be like a broken clock. There could be something to titanium oxide, but not to do with EM waves.
