this is freaky as hell
for broadband users
for modem users
Basicly it shows how a brand of cornflakes has been enrichened(sp?)with iron fillings so they can claim on the package that it contains 100% of the rdi for iron. Nasty as hell, I wonder what else kind of crap they add to foods like that.
the clip is long(7 minutes) and dr levy is boring as hell but its still worth watching!

Johan, thats not really new...
They add many minerals and vitamins to foods depending on whats missing in a regions diet. Where I live they add vitamin A to the milk as there is a deficiency in our diet. Out in the maritime provinces, it's calcium they add to the milk.
Iron particles in corn flakes is not that new, I remember as a kid we'd crush a bowl of corn flakes and root around with a magnet for little iron particles for 7th grade science class.
I believe they call that "fortifying" foods.

well I was never aware that they add non bioaviable(or even harmfull)forms of minerals/trace elements to meet the RDI levels. Just imagine what those iron fillings do to the body.
Adding minerals and vitamins I se nothing wrong with. But like I sad adding unabsorbable harmfull forms of the minerals is idiotic and that should be punishable

Just as they add hormones to meat.
What can you do?
Nothing, just hope the hormones help you in some way/shape/form.

ohh well just another reason to make sure that almost every meal I prepare has been done by myself from raw material and no finished processed crap unless its cheatday.

at least the iron is supposed to befefit your body.
i saw a 60 minutes episode where you saw exactly how much insect parts and droppings were found in canned foods, and dry foods..
mmmmm..... cockroach eggs anyone?

Iron can be both benificial or toxic depending on what form it is in.
the insect parts are just extra protein
