What a surprise I have in store for all my furry friends next month! I still can’t tell you yet, and it’s really hard to keep my lips sealed. All I can say is you’ll love it! Whether for my fur friends or their human companions, it’s very important that pure food supplements and treats are always provided. Why? Because so much of what we are being given to eat can be contaminated with toxic chemicals, GMOs, synthesized materials, and refined useless ingredients.
My mom says whatever we eat–even our treats–should nourish us and keep our bodies healthy and strong. Even if it’s really yummy–if it’s bad, don’t eat it! Some common nasty ingredients you want to watch out for in foods are the following:
Nitrites and nitrates in meats, destroy the digestive tract, and may even cause cancer. My food is always fresh and raw. It keeps me healthy and strong, and my fur is really soft and beautiful. Potassium bromate causes tumors in animals. So don’t eat bread and crackers if they contain this bad preservative.
Next is butylated hydroxyanisole, (BHA). This is a known carcinogen, meaning it may cause cancer, and is an endocrine disruptor found in chips, meats, and snacks. Just like BHA, BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene) is added to food to extend shelf life. This preservative causes lung tumors in rats. Cats don’t like to eat rats with lung tumors! I also want to warn you about artificial colors. These are only used to make you like the bad things in foods. They are banned in multiple countries around the world. Humans don’t have the nose to smell the bad stuff, so they must look at all their labels.
GMOs are not listed or easy to identify on labels. Always buy organic. Genetically modified foods, (GMOs), cause bad digestion and even DNA damage.
Ethoxyquin is yet another preservative that can harm the blood and liver. It is also used as a pesticide.
Propylene glycol is used to preserve moisture content. It’s also known as antifreeze! Antifreeze has killed some of my cat friends.
In closing, we must train our humans not to hurt us or themselves with these bad ingredients in our food and treats. Processed foods today contain over 9,000 chemicals and additives. Please remember that real wild organic food treats and supplements are best for us all.
