Yes, it is really true. The United States Food and Drug Administration approved the use of propylene oxide as a fumigant for raw almonds – beginning on September 1, 2007. This was in response to just two incidents of contamination by Salmonella in commercial orchards, one incident occurring in Canada, and one incident in the United States.

Almost all raw almonds are now treated prior to sale. Propylene oxide is now one of the major methods used. The most common treatments used are oil roasting, dry roasting, blanching, steam, and propylene oxide. [1]



Propylene oxide (PPO) is not exactly a nice chemical. It was used as a racing fuel additive before being banned by both the National Hot Rod and American Motorcycle Racing Associations. [2]

The chemical is listed as reasonably expected to be a human carcinogen in addition to being “very hazardous in case of eye contact (irritant), of ingestion, of inhalation”. [3] It is also listed by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as Group 2B: possibly carcinogenic to humans. [4]

It’s unknown how salmonella can get into almonds but it is very rare. It is also known to affect other nuts.

Do you think that a carcinogenic chemical being used is an overall improvement to almonds? Salmonella is bad, but isn’t this worse? PPO is highly volatile and it is stated that it is possible for PPO residue to remain in almonds if they are improperly treated, however so far testing has shown almonds are compliant with residue level.

It is interesting to note that the Almond Board of California states that almonds which are treated in accordance with the PPO treatment parameters described in the study can be labeled as “pasteurized.” [6]



I’d call that a redefinition of the term. You may still wish to opt for brands which use steam – and Eat Local Grown has a list of these.

The Simple Food Combination That DESTROYED Type 2 Diabetes In 74% Of Patients!

You will be AMAZED when you watch this incredible story that was recently featured by the world famous Dr. OZ.

Watch the video here:

diabetes

Rocco Wachman of Scottsdale, Arizona was overweight, diabetic and had the heart of an 85 year old… while being only in his 50's.

In just 28 days Rocco completely reversed his type 2 diabetes, got rid of his hypertension, acid reflux, successfully reduced the plaque on his arteries… came off his cholesterol and diabetes medication completely… and did all this just by changing his diet in a specific way

Watch the video to learn how he did it.

What’s even more astounding is that Dr. Michael Roizen, the chief medical consultant for the Dr. Oz show ASTONISHED viewers by calling this "Doable for everyone"!

Dr. Oz himself even stated that 90% of type 2 diabetics (over 200 MILLION people) can reverse their problem!

But how?

The secret is in the foods you eat, or more importantly, the foods you should AVOID.

Your diet is literally killing you. This is no exaggeration: Scientists have established firmly that chronic low-grade inflammation related to diet is responsible for the decrease of insulin sensitivity (aka insulin resistance) and high blood sugar leading to diabetes - as well as many other serious health problems.

Doctors at the International Council for Truth in Medicine are now revealing the truth about diabetes that has been suppressed for over 21 years.

Watch this video to learn how it is done - and how Big Pharma is hiding the truth about diabetes.
