Paint Thinner Found in Children's Cereal


US Dot Connector Vicky LePage busts children's cereal wide open

A lot of home builders and painters will know what trisodium phosphate (TSP) is. But a lot of them don't know that they eat it for breakfast!

Even though it appears right on the ingredients label, a lot of people don't realize it's an industrial cleaning agent. It gets worse (see below video), the government doesn't even want you to clean with it because it's considered bad for the environment. It's an okay part of a complete breakfast though!

Nick Brannigan and Vicky LePage hit the streets of Las Vegas again to show people what's up:


I referenced TSP when writing about various Cheerios debacles, saying that even if GMO-free, a lot of nutritionists would never recommend the cereal for its other ingredients. TSP appears in 6 varieties of Cheerios.

While it is not a paint thinner in and of itself, it is used to wash painted walls in preparation. It is also a degreaser, mildew remover, siding cleaner and can abate lead in paint with repeated washing. All of these types of applications come with first aid warnings due to its extreme alkalinity.

Of course it is approved as GRAS (generally recognized as safe) by the FDA as a food additive. But the government has also decided it is bad for the environment because of algae blooms in fresh water. TSP was phased out of dishwashing and laundry products around 2011. But not for commercial use because, you know, they need to keep things clean for people. And not for chemical pesticides which many speculate is the real cause for invasive algae blooms due to waste water run off. Regular folk aren't supposed to clean with it because of the environment - but it's okay in their food...

Some people are actually buying TSP at hardware stores so that they can add them to their dishwashers and laundry detergents for more efficient cleaning. Now that they have gone through the trouble of finding it, does it bother them to eat it?

It's not to say that the alternative cereal, Nature's Path, is the best breakfast option or chock full of nutrition, but if you are the "cereal killer" of the household you can at least be sure that you're not consuming an ingredient better left to scrubbing house siding. Plus, the owner of this independent, small company is unequivocally against genetically modified ingredients both for people and the land.

Nick Brannigan is an investigative writer and hosts Health Conspiracy Radio on NaturalNewsRadio.com Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5PM EST. He has been written about by other health writers like Jon Rappoport for his investigations into conflicts of interest with organic companies concerning the push for GMO labeling and the failure of Proposition 37.

On his show, he, along with co-host Leslie Ann Stoddard and their many guests discuss GMOs, fluoride, activism, the vibrational energy of food, homeopathy, factory farming, self realization, making lasting changes and much more.

  5. POINT TAKEN>> SO WOULD IT BE FAIR TO SAY THAT THERE IS ENOUGH 'NON-TOXIC' CRAP TO GO AROOUD FOR ALL ON A GLOBAL SCALE? SO IN THE REAL SCHEME OF THINGS, ITS NOT THAT THERE ARE EVER 2 MANY PEOPLE BUT RATHER 2 MANY PEOPLE HOARDING 2MUCH CRAP FOR THEMSELVES ONLY AND NO1 ELSE. IF SOMEONE SAYZ TO ME "WHY SHOULD I PART WITH MY HARD EARNED CASH, OR CRAP OR WHATEVER JUST TO GIVE IT TO SOMEONE ELSE WHO DIDN'T EARN IT", I ALWAYS SUGGEST THAT THEY REFLECT UPPON THEIR REASONNING FOR BEING HERE I.E BEING ALIVE. I MEAN, WATS THE POINT IN LIFE IF IT CANT SELF GENERATE? ITS BAISICALLY THE VERY POINT TO LIFE ITSELF, SURVIVAL AND THE SURVIVAL OF OTHERS. WOULDNT YOU AGREE?

    1. yes and no. basically yes because that is definitely the 'purpose' model (without using the quotation of Shakespeare's version of it), yet the human race has taken a huge uturn over the centuries and began valuing things of little to no actual value at all, such as money and bricks and mortar etc. one can never truly (by definition) 'own' a piece of land, yet its the uturned mindset which has indoctrinated that ownis upon the actual 'meaning' of 'ownership' its self. so in every true sense of the word i do completely agree with you, yet due to the sociological uturned me and the uturned every other person, I must at some point accept that the uturned me cant be yturned instantly. it takes time to unplug one's self completely from the matrix. we can only unplug 1 lead at a time, 1 conditioned thought process at a time, 1 idealistic value system at a time, 1 belief at a time. it takes time my friend.
