Prostate Support Group 5:30 - 6:30 Sentara Albemarle Medical Center Education Room Spouses, family members, and friends are encouraged to attend Warren Green is head of a prostate support group and can be reached at July 23 2015 Health and Nutrition Strategies For Cancer Survivors and Everybody Else More on Food Additives In an earlier column (Dietary Fiber), I referred to the Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) substance list. Let’s go into a little more detail about that list. Artificially colored foods, and arsenic in poultry. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) created by congress in 1906, regulates all substances which may become a part of or affect the characteristics of any food. Around 1958, the FDA instituted new requirements of testing substances (pre-market review) before entry into commerce. The new requirements exempted substances in commerce prior to 1958. The identification of those substances are the GRAS list. As per the food additive amendment of 1958, GRAS determination can be substantiated by the FDA or by a private party (Lobbyist). The most prominent private party is “The Flavor and Extract Manufacturers Association of America “ or FEMA. FEMA was created in 1909 in response to the creation of the FDA Their list is identified as the FEMA-GRAS-LIST. Cancer survivors, correction, everyone should avoid food coloring. Artificially colored food made with dyes derived from petroleum and coal tar such as: Yellow #5,Red 40, Yellow #6, and Green#3, are examples of food additives found in candy, soft dairy,cereal,ice cream, and pudding. The European Union Country’s requires a warning label that states “ May have an adverse effect on activity and attention in children”. Products containing the aforementioned artificial coloring is banned in Norway, Finland, France,Austria and the U.K. FDA approved arsenic based drugs, such as Nitarsone, and Roxarsone, have been used in poultry production for decades. Administered in feed, it’s purpose is to promote growth, improve pigmentation of the meat, and prevent parasites. Arsenic is used in 88% of the poultry sold in the U.S. So it’s the standard. In 2011, pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, voluntarily removed Roxarsone from U.S markets. Nitarsone is still in use. Finally, I haven’t said a lot about exercise, in my strategies. I personally do the minimum, about 20 minutes every other day. I’m still researching the data, trials and studies about exercise, so expect it in a future column. However, I want to give a shout out to a group of mature ladies in the neighborhood called the “Coach’s Ball Road. Striders”. They do an early morning 4 mile walk, 3 times a week before they start their day. Remember, clearly you are what you eat. Your quality of life depends upon the nutritional quality of what you consume. All of our clients get their own QR code for free when purchasing an ad. Albemarle Tradewinds July 2015 7
