Eating fast food regularly has
the same impact on the liver
as hepatitis, study finds

Daily Mail [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 2/17/2013 7:37:25 PM

A new study shows that regularly eating fast food isn´t just bad for your waistline, it can also damage your liver in ways that are surprisingly similar to hepatitis. The results were revealed on the television program, ´The Doctors,´ where it was found that even just a month of eating fast food can cause significant changes to your liver. French fries in particular were dangerous because of the extra ingredients added. ´We know that they are adding salt, and cooking it in fat, but they´re also putting sugar on them too. Why sugar? Because it helps get them golden crispy

Ethylene Glycol is in antifreeze, not propylene glycol, like the difference between methyl alcohol and ethyl alcohol. One will kill you now and the other could take decades. I think these studies are trying to prepare us to live like the third world. Now THAT is organic living.

More propaganda to try to control every aspect of our lives. It is like Hitler wanting to make Germany a completely vegetarian society (even though he sometimes ate meat). Bloomberg mentality on steroids... I am still waiting for them to allow cyclamates back onto the market. They lied about it causing cancer because the saccharine lobby was too big to ignore. That was when Diet Rite soda tasted great (not diet tasting at all). Then they banned cyclamates and I could never drink diet soda again. Yuck. Anyway, years later they proved the studies were false.

Sorry, #1 -- propylene glycol is an ingredient in the newer automotive antifreezes, and is used in deicing solutions at airports. It´s also approved as a food preservative by the FDA. The article still sounds like a bogus study to me.

It´s a problem feeding the masses, that´s why I don´t eat fast food.

One fast food restaurant that features seafood still used beef tallow aka lard to deep fry.

One way or another, we will pay for fast food and obesity.

It does make a difference what is in the food at these restaurants. MSG is in nearly everything and if you are affected as I am you get headaches, feel tired and rundown etc. Even the salads at McDonalds have msg. I really liked their salads but stopped buying them when I discovered why I felt so weird later in the day.

Type at google: msg in fast food

Congress lets these companies put garbage food on our grocery store shelves. Monsanto rules American farming. Monsanto execs have bought and paid for FDA officials and Congresscritters.

The mistrust between Israel and the Palestinians is higher than ever, US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Wednesday at a hearing into the 2015 State Department budget request.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told House Ways and Means Committee members on Wednesday that she expects health insurance rates to increase as the Affordable Care Act takes full effect. ´I think premiums are likely to go up,´ she conceded under questioning, ´but go up at a slower pace´ than they have already under Obamacare.

The Democratic Party is licking its wounds after losing a special election in Florida that turned into a referendum on Barack Obama, suggesting that the president has become an albatross around the necks of congressional candidates--and spelling election doom for November. Election prognosticator Stuart Rothenberg wrote in January that the 13th Congressional District race was one that Democrats ´can´t afford to lose.´ Alex Sink, the losing Democrat, also lost a statewide race for governor in 2016 by a razor-thin margin, but carried the 13th district by 2 percentage points. Obama, too, prevailed there in both of his elections.

David Cameron tonight condemned a "barbaric" missile attack on Israel that struck on the first day of his visit to the country. Militants fired as many as 50 missiles from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel, in the biggest single attack in two years. Israeli tanks responded by firing shells at a suspected launch site within Palestinian territory. The attack came on the day Mr Cameron told the Israeli Parliament he would offer "rock solid" support to Israel in defending itself and condemned "despicable" efforts by Iran to ship missiles to terrorist groups.

Speaking to a fractured crowd following Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu´s pushing through of three contentious bills, Cameron said that he "felt a connection with Israel" and said that Britain was integral in "securing a homeland for the Jewish people". Members of the Knesset shouted and heckled Netanyahu as he delivered a speech ahead of Cameron, who initially looked amused at the circumstances as one member was escorted from the chamber.

Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win Tuesday´s special election in Florida´s 13th Congressional District. Jolly will fill out the term of his former boss, Republican Rep. Bill Young, who died in October. Young, first elected to Congress in 1970, was the longest-serving Republican in the House.

Republican David Jolly won the special election to fill the House seat left vacant by the death of his former boss, Rep. C.W. Bill Young (R-Fla.). With nearly all of the votes counted Tuesday night, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Alex Sink’s 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent. Sink lost the 2010 governor’s race to Rick Scott. The Democratic Party sunk extensive ad funding into the congressional battle, and DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) tried to paint the loss as a positive. “Republican special interest groups poured in millions to hold onto a Republican
