    Okay I’m not happy about this substance being in breakfast cereal but I still don’t know why is it there. This is the second article I have read and I am still non the wiser as to why it is in there. Answers please!

    what a load of BS–TSP is nothing more then sodium and phophorus which can increase health valuefor the boy—increase ATP production—stablize heart–remove fatty build up in the liver and gall bladder—and reduce lactic acid—in a balance with potassium will increase stamina and strenght—and people say it is a cleaning agent—so is vinegar and vinegar which ever form has benefits —alot of angst and BS over nothing this also regulates calcium deposits and can restore calcium back to it’s proper place—
    fear mongering and over zealous nonsense—you may want to stop eating all yur veges as well due to the arsenic plants have in them as a defence mechanism—such foolishness

    Hello Anon, thank you for your very passionate response! There is a big difference between what occurs in nature, and what has been made chemically in a lab. Anything can be combined or taken apart… such as water for example. H2O as you know is basically harmless. However when taken apart…hydrogen and oxygen, then become two very different elements; potentially extremely dangerous.

    I totally agreed with your comment regarding arsenic. Arsenic is found nearly everywhere, and has the potential to kill you. However, it is the main component of apricot seeds that actually “kills” cancer cells. Yet, I still would not want to see arsenic added to food…or Cheerios (since this is the topic here).

    I am sorry that you see this as “fear mongering” :(

    What I consider to be fear mongering are all the commercials on TV that try to convince people that we need this or that drug! (my favorite is “when diet and exercise are not enough”)

    After curing myself 100% naturally from MS, what support is organic, holistic living. And there is nothing “fearful” about that! :)

    Thanks for your comment!

    I agree with you Neil. Supposedly it is there to maintain freshness. However, organic cereals (or other foods) seem to maintain freshness without these additives. With that said, I personally do not need cereal to last for months (or years)! Foods are meant to go bad over time. Have you come across the McDonald’s experiments that have been all over internet? Their food apparently never goes bad. For me…this is a problem. Because whatever is causing these foods to not decay, is likely something not natural and unrecognizable to digestion.

    I had a friend who used trisodium phosphate in his carpet cleaning business. One day he told me that they had banned the substance from use as a cleaner because they found out it was bad for the environment. Now they put it in our food? No wonder people are getting sick. Recently I found out that they are putting propylene glycol in our food too. I saw it on an ingredient list for ice cream two days ago. Propylene Glycol is Anti-freeze. My dog licked a bottle of anti-freeze one day and that night he died! To me, such things should not be in our food.
    How did you help your health? What did you do to eat better?

    Hi John, Thanks for your comment! I totally agree!I eat only organic whole foods including organically raised animal protein. I also eat quite a bit of fats such as avocado, coconut, nuts, and of course animal fats (butter, etc). And LOTS of filtered water! Nearly a gallon a day! ;)

    It seems that a doctor would do a little research and not rely on internet myths. Not to mention the bs organic fallacy. Natural is not always better or safer.

    Hi Dr. Kmiec,

    Im really new to learning about GMO’s and clean eating. Ive started including organic in my diet but would like to continue to improve my familys health. Do you have any websites where I can learn more about healthy eating? Also, my mom has MS and I may also have it. What could you recommend we do to improve our health and help heal. Or maybe a website that lists things to help cure MS? I really appreciate your time and any advise you can give.

    Thank you,
    Jessica

    Back off topic.. to John’s comment about anti freeze. Propylene glycol is a water absorber. Diethylene or ethylene glycol is the dangerous ingredient in anti freeze. PG is used as a dehydrator, a thickener.. many foods. Not saying it’s safe. But just listing the difference to clarify.
    TSP… not safe. But also listed in its safety is ability to consume not on its own as a dry substance (very harmful) but when mixed with other ingredients, in small amounts. So yes, eating a whole box of lucky charms might make you sick not only from the sugar content, but from its other ingredients also.

    Dr. kmiec, you say you cured yourself of MS, i woukd like to know exactly how you did this! I also have MS, and every bit of information I have and found there is no cure. You can live very successfully with it and exibit no symptoms like I do. But there is still no cure. I can not remylinate my nerve tracts, or heal the scars with new mylin. Are you stating a actual cure or just a complete remission of the MS with ni symptoms?

    Hi Thomas! I sure did, and it wasn’t easy. It took many years of changing everything in my life: diet, mega nutrition, and my “way of thinking”…and it was all worth it! Much like many people who have cured themselves of cancer, ALS and diabetes, curing MS is just as possible!

    MY brief story can be found here, and coming early this November is my story (via video) in detail regarding MS and Anxiety!

    Ms. Kmiec, you deserve a pass on this article, because your education is in Human Biology, not Organic Chemistry, I can understand why you fail to grasp the properties of TSP and its uses. Anon’s comment above touched on many of the positives uses for TSP in food, but you disregarded many of his facts. I would read up on some of those uses and then come back to edit your editorial.

    Hi, I have a question as far as the organic eating. Being on a fixed income with four people to feed, the prices are high and you don’t get nearly the amount of food needed to even last three days…I have tried. I suffer from hypothyroidism and have actually managed to lowered my dosage of medication all with changing certain foods in and out of my diet…however, I did not achieve it with organic foods. I would love to eat healthier foods where I know the chicken I feed my family wasn’t being given hormone injections and whatnot. Any suggestions on how to buy healthier wholesome foods such as meat at an affordable price?

    Oct 15, 2014 @ 13:51:44

    Thanks for the “pass”, but I stand by the article as it currently stands. Whenever “positive uses” of any substances affects human health, it’s time to reevaluate how it is being used. Especially when it is an unnecessary ingredient. Not surprising though as many similar arguments have been made regarding other so-called “safe” food additives. So I guess it boils down to which research, and which evidence you choose to abide by.

    Hi Sharon! Yes it can be quite expensive to eat organic foods. Too bad organic farmers have to pay ridiculous high fees to the government in order to have the organic label.

    More and more grocery stores are now carrying their own organic food lines, which are less expensive than it use to be. Even stores such as Walmart now carry many organic foods. I don’t know where you live, but many places have farmer’s markets that offer affordable organic food. And even if the food isn’t “organic”, you have the opportunity to speak directly with the farmers and ask about their farming practices.

    Choosing to eat organic takes much of the chemical burden off the body, which of course is a good thing. However, depending on the state of health of the individual, supplementing any nutritional deficiencies that have occurred may also (likely) be required. This is what I needed to do when I decided to cure myself naturally from MS – Because I was in a disease state, my body required mega nutrition. And though many results happened within a few months, other healing took up to 3 years.

    Dosage makes the poison. There are naturally occurring poisons in organic food, some in greater concentrations than some manufactured products.

    I have to respectfully disagree with your statement “There is a big difference between what occurs in nature, and what has been made chemically in a lab”. I believe I know what you meant when you said this, but this statement, on it’s own, is patently false. Chemistry does not care if you put together two atoms of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen in a lab or it happens accidentally in nature. In both cases you get water and that water is indistinguishable from any other method of producing the substance. Chemicals are chemicals and trisodium phosphate made in a lab is exactly the same substance as trisodium phosphate found in nature.

    That said, there is a big difference in how a chemical is used, and this is in part determined by the environment the chemical is in. For example, trisodium phosphate in large quantities in our lakes and rivers isn’t such a good thing for a lot of different reasons. But in our bodies it is basically as inert as the nitrogen you’re breathing. It simply does nothing for you. (Well, now that I think about it, it could help cure an over acidic stomach…)

    Remember people, we have one of the world’s most powerful acids in the form of the HCL in our stomachs. That’s not good for the environment either if you were to turn it loose. You’ve got to stop thinking “bad for the environment = bad to be eaten. I know that sounds strange, but the equation is quite false.

    Is trisodium phosphate needed in cereal? Probably not. Is trisodium phosphate harmful in your cereal? Probably not.

    I love TSP for cleaning walls prior to painting…the fact that it is in the favorite childhood cereals is appalling…was it in the cereal when we were consuming it 25+ years ago? Time to change my family’s way of thinking because those foods are out!!!! Unbelievable!!!

    Hi Courtney, respectfully I also disagree with your comment. Can an apple, for example, be made in a lab? If broken down, an apple is merely a bunch of chemicals correct? Furthermore, we are also “nature” as we are organic beings. People are sicker today than they have ever been, despite all the pharmaceuticals. However we do have something that is very different regarding our food…more and more artificial chemicals as food additives. I mean, we even have “ice cream” sandwiches that do not melt in the heat? Perhaps if we all as a society turned our diets back to nature, then less drugs would be needed to mask the symptoms that the chemical foods have caused. After I cured myself from MS 100% naturally, and after eating only organic foods for years now, my body quickly reacts to any lab- made chemical in food that I may eat in a restaurant. Now, we all have our opinions, and I respect and enjoy debates, because I feel all sides should be seen by the public. So Thank you for sharing your side of this important disagreement! :)

    Hi Tom, diabetes type 2 is easily cured! Even allistic conventional medicine agrees with that. I agree, Type 1 diabetes is far more difficult to treat, however if caught early, diabetic neuropathy can be prevented with high-dose thiamine therapy…for example. Here are 2 articles that I found very interesting.

    You are so right Aron! Even a little arsenic will not kill…though I still would prefer not eating it on a daily basis. Plus, even water can be deadly! For me the bottom line question is why have any poison in food at all at any dosage…especially when it is not necessary?

    Half the time I read these angry troll-like, mechanical and industry insiderish responses, about how organic is a lie, or how non-naturally-chelated and created chemicals (less the residual solvents and contaminants or nature-equalized balance) are the same – I wonder what the possible motivation could be beyond programming, sides-taking, or a feeling of powerlessness (fluoride, tsp, and propylene glycol are good examples).

    Then again, we seem to have a history in this country of caveman-centric values, and remaining on the wrong side of history, until education and evolution catch up. Or civil war. It seems the angry “Anon”s of this world are meant to polarize and galvanize those that want more (or less) from nature (but not necessarily “natural” as we’ve seen from special interest controls of the FDA).

    It’s a no-brainer. Eat what nature provides as a whole food, and which has been consumed for millenia. But introduce an isolated or lab-created compound into food (or even “as food” itself) and it essentially becomes a drug. And with drugs, the long-term side effects are always unpredictable, as is clearly shown by the number of medical drugs once approved by the FDA, but later recalled by the FDA and/or sued over. Isolate a specific compound/molecule from a medicinal herb and it becomes a drug. With processed foods, we are essentially eating drug-infused foods…with the only difference being that it doesn’t come in a pill form (yet).

    Yes, some drugs or isolated compounds, whether they can be found in whole foods or can only be lab-created, are relatively safe…such as certain vitamins, minerals, hydrogen peroxide, herbal extracts, and even a small handful of medical drugs (eg, old school drugs like metformin, morphine, digitalis, lidocaine, etc.) if used reasonably or short term only.

    Whole (full spectrum) foods have a track record of safety spanning thousands of years. I don’t recall anyone dying from consuming apples, unless they accidentally choked on it. But the emergence of numerous freak (mostly autoimmune) diseases has become a global epidemic…no doubt the result of vaccines, junk food, food additives, GMO’s, industrial toxins, pesticides, medical drugs, and so on.

    Kind of hard to wrap my head around the idea that these freak diseases could’ve come from eating whole, unadulturated, uncontaminated foods! Of course the drug & food giants will have the people believing there’s no solid evidence their chemicals are harmful, because they know that science will take decades to confirm they are harmful…all the while they make millions, people get sicker, food becomes inedible, and the globalist (fascist elite) agenda continues on.
