Another day, and another news that casts a shadow on manufactured food

Clear Labs’ latest report—which included genetic and nutritional analyses of 258 samples of meat and veggie burgers—discovered “significant issues” in 14 percent of products. These included substitution of ingredients, glaring deviations from nutritional labels, several instances of food-borne pathogen DNA and rat DNA as well as one case of human DNA.

Clear Labs did find several instances in which burgers were “adulterated” with a significant amount of an unlisted ingredient—lamb or bison burgers that were laced with beef or chicken, for instance. The analysis also found one black bean burger that contained no black beans whatsoever, and 14 other veggie burger products that were missing an ingredient listed on the label.

Overall, Clear Labs found evidence of bugs that cause illnesses including gastroenteritis and pneumonia in 12 samples.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
