Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

In a new press release today, a study finds chemicals used for water purification can lead to food allergies and even a higher chance of environmental allergies. Yes, you heard this right. Pesticides in the tap water are the culprit. Who knew? Organic food enthusiasts and advocates have been saying these things for a very long time, yet every time they raise the issue that pure water and organic food is better for you than the more easily available options, they get slapped by these super rich mega food industries and government agencies who benefit financially from all those chemicals being in your food and water.  | Examiner.com

The researchers found that children whose mothers reported them as being black were nearly 2.5 times as likely as self-reported white youngsters to be sensitive to any of the eight foods tested, and they were also more likely to be sensitive to more of the foods than white children.
When the researchers looked at the genetic markers for ancestry, they found that for every 10% increment in African ancestry, children were 7% more likely to have antibodies to the allergy-causing foods than white children. And the association was strongest for peanuts; more children with African ancestry showed antibody levels that would correlate to a possible allergic reaction if they were to eat peanuts.
