UK: Nestle cuts artificial flavours

2012-03-02 19:56

Geneva - The Swiss group Nestle said on Friday it was the first company in Britain to remove artificial flavours in all its confectionery products such as Smarties or Rolo.

The company said in a statement that it had replaced artificial colours, flavours and preservatives with natural ingredients in all 79 confectionery products it sells in Britain.

Carrot, hibiscus, radish, and lemon are some of the ingredients Nestle has used to provide colour or flavour its confectionery range.

Nestle said it made the changes after seven years of consumer research which showed that three quarters of British people look for products without artificial additives when buying confectionery.

The company had already removed artificial ingredients from all its drinks in Britain, including Nesquik.

Similar initiatives are already underway in Canada and a number of other European markets, said Nestle, the world's biggest food company.

    Good news. But the world's food companies move way too slow.

    Aw, how boring!

    Nestle - the biggest researchers and peddlers of artificial flavours in the world. They have obviously been caught doing something horrendously wrong to do this. So this spin is just part of a cover up. I don't buy their coffee any more because of all the artificial smells, colourants and flavour used to make, what is essentially, artificial coffee.

    Hugo Chavez! Cancer is money of cancer research organizations. These organizations can't understand the Ferromagnetic Theory-2006 of Cancer. 2012-2006=6 Warburg's theory that cancer starts from irreversible injury to cellular respiration eventually fell out of favor amid research pointing to genomic mutations as the cause of uncontrolled cell growth. Ferromagnetic Theory-2006 of Cancer (Iron Conception) [clinical and molecular biological aspects]: 1) Any human cell is a society of dia-, para-, superpara-, ferri- and ferromagnetic nanoparticles. 2) Any onco-pathology and ALS work by intracellular superpara-, ferri- and ferromagnetic nanoparticles. Intracellular molecules FeO;Fe2O3;Fe3O4 'create' intracellular superpara-, ferri- and ferromagnetic nanoparticles. These nanoparticles are able chaotically distort DNA / shift chromosomes by local magnetic fields. 3) Non-complicated anti-iron methods of the Old Testament can beat Cancer and ALS (intracellular superpara-ferri-ferromagnetic infections). Cancer patients-2012 must receive anti-cancer anti-iron intratumoral injections [sulfur (2%) + olive oil (98%)] by ceramic needles. These intratumoral injections will initiate harmless infiltrations (deposits of cells that die; harmless necroses). Accurate anti-iron slow blood loss (even 75%) [hemoglobin control] and anti-iron goat’s milk diet will neutralize any micro-metastases http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/opinions/38197/ ; http://www.news24.com ; Vadim Shapoval

    Hugo Chavez, Nicolas Maduro and Ferromagnetic Cancer Theory. Venezuelan President / cancer patient Hugo Chavez acknowledged the possibility that he may not be able to continue as president or begin his new term. Chavez: you should elect Nicolas Maduro as the new president. Chavez often says Christ was a socialist and a revolutionary. He also regularly quotes from the Bible, particularly the passage that says it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter Heaven. Chavez told Pope Benedict XVI that Bolivar wasn't an atheist, as many believed, but a Christian. "Our Bolivarian revolution is very Christian and I have a friend who isn't Christian, but lately has said he is a Christian in the social aspect: his name is Fidel Castro," Chavez said. Nicolas Maduro is a former bus driver and legislator. Hugo Chavez, Nicolas Maduro and Cuban oncologists ignore clinical and molecular biological aspects of the Ferromagnetic Cancer Theory (Theory from The Old Testament; Iron Conception). That is why Hugo Chavez will die soon. Ferromagnetic Cancer Theory will beat cancer. US Thermonuclear Sun-2018 will eat thermonuclear fuel [LUNAR helium-3, tritium, deuterium, lithium deuteride] and will beat Chavez's and Putin's petroleum. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/opinions/103745/ ; http://www.news24.com/World/News/UK-Nestle-cuts-artificial-flavours-20120302 ; Vadim Shapoval
