More Deaths from Alzheimer’s Disease & Diabetes: Modern Technologies to Blame

Deaths from Alzheimer's disease & diabetes, as well as Parkinson's, have increased notably over the last 40 years. Alongside this, the use of nitrites and nitrates in food preservation, processing and fertilizers has multiplied hundreds of times over. Recent research links the two, resulting in significant implications for the future use of these chemicals. Nitrites and nitrates are known to be dangerous to humans. The majority of them cause cancer. Nevertheless, we are ingesting more and more of these chemicals daily. Fertilizers are nitrate-based and contaminate both food and water. Manufacturing these pesticides as well as other products such as rubber and cosmetics also increases our exposure to nitrates. When nitrites and proteins interact, nitrosamines are formed. Sodium nitrite is typically added to fish and meat in order to preserve it. So, foods such as processed meats, bacon and certain cheese products, which are high in protein, will contain nitrosamines. Nitrosamines have been studied widely and conclusively found to be carcinogenic. They act at a cellular level and actually damage DNA. This cellular affect is similar to that which occurs in aging as well as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and Type...
