Consumer Alert

IMG_1519This consumer alert is for all people who consume and feed their pets Vitamin C, citric acid, ascorbic acid, and digestive enzymes that are consumed by themselves, in multivitamins, or added to human/pet foods. These nutrients could be harmful to you and your pets. The FDA has allowed companies to add these ingredients to our foods, vitamins, and our pets foods which have been derived from industrial produced apergillus niger, also known as black mold. Their reasoning is the black mold is only harmful if you breathe it, not consume it. The FDA failed to recognize that industrial produced aspergillus niger also produces two deadly, toxic mycotoxins called fumonisin and ochratoxin. These mycotoxins are metabolic byproducts produced by the black mold, aspergillus niger. They can not be killed because they are not alive and they can’t be destroyed by any means. These mycotoxins are potentially carcinogenic (cause cancer), neurotoxic (brain and nervous system damage causing Alzheimers, Parkinsons,  and seizures), immunosuppression and immunotoxicity (ability to fight off cancer and infections is compromised) and nephrotoxic (renal/kidney disease).

Not all Vitamin C and digestive enzymes are derived from aspergillus niger. You’ll need to check with the manufacturer and find out what sources were used to derive, extract, and produce their vitamin C and digestive enzymes. It may take some investigating and patience. Usually the person who answers the consumer questions with these companies will have no idea what your talking about. Be persistent until you get to the right person that has biochemistry, physiology, and pathology training. Most companies employ scientists and or doctors who can give you the correct answer your looking for. I have changed pet food for my dog and I have removed certain vitamins and digestive enzymes from my clinic shelves and replaced them with fungus-free and mycotoxin-free products.

Did you know that all grains and other foods, while growing in the fields and being stored, have been contaminated/infected with mold, fungus, yeast, and their mycotoxin byproducts? Did you know that when you consume meat and dairy products from animals that have been fed these contaminated mycotoxin foods that you’re now digesting and absorbing those same mycotoxins? Did you know that grass fed beef and wild harvested meats such as deer, elk, etc. don’t contain mycotoxin like commercially raised animals?
