🧠 Avoid These 5 Brain Damaging Neurotoxins Found In Popular Foods – by Dr Sam Robbins

Hi, it’s Dr Sam Robbins, Today I want to discuss 5 brain damaging,
neurotoxins that are found in very popular foods. Plus, I’ll also give you healthy alternatives. And this is a really important topic for anyone
who wants to increase your energy levels, improve your memory and cognition, your mood
and especially if you’re concerned about Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease, like
I am due to my family history. As a reminder,neurotoxins are substances that
can harm your central nervous system (CNS). And your Central Nervous System (CNS) controls
most functions of your body and mind. It’s basically your brain and spinal cord. Simply stated, when these neurotoxins get
into your body and “attack” your CNS, they negatively affect how you feel and function. All of your senses (sight, sound, smell, taste,
touch, etc.). Your organs and stomach. Muscle movements and strength. Your emotions, mood, memory, cognition, sleep,
etc., etc. Obviously, this is a really big deal. More so, it’s a massive problem because
the FDA allows over allows 3,000 food additives to be used in our food supply and relatively
few of them have been tested for safety. (1) They barely know what these additives do when
used by themselves. And they most certainly do NOT know what they
do when they’re used together. There’s just too many of them. Unfortunately, a handful of food additives
are well-documented neurotoxins, but are still found in popular foods most people eat daily,
even in relatively healthy diets. So let’s get started Neurotoxin #1: Aspartame Artificial Sweetener Aspartame is a very popular artificial sweetener,
especially about a decade ago. It’s found in most things labeled “sugar-free”
or “diet”. Its typically found in diet sodas, candies,
chewing gum and so forth. You know, a lot of the stuff the kids eat,
unfortunately. The brand name is Equal or NutraSweet and
sadly, I used to have a lot of this junk over 20 years ago. There are over 100+ reported side effects
of aspartame including migraines, dizziness, anxiety, memory loss, insomnia, and the worsening
of many disorders ranging from fibromyalgia to Alzheimer’s disease. (2) In fact, there were over 7,000 aspartame side
effects reported to the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) between 1982 and 1995. (3) You can also find lists of reported side effects
on various reputable websites including Cancer.org and CDC.gov. So, make sure you read the label and avoid
this artificial sweetener. In fact, avoid them all except one of my favorites
being, Stevia — which is a natural, herbal extract. Stevia has been used safely in Japan for a
few decades before showing up in the US. It’s 200 times sweeter than sugar and doesn’t
increase blood sugar or promote tooth decay. Neurotoxin #2: Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)
This basically acts like salt and it’s found in many packaged foods you eat, also when
eating out. The saltier the food, the higher the MSG. They used to be heavily used in Chinese Foods. MSG is very addictive and causes you to gain
weight, but I’ll get to that in a minute. Many times MSG is found in foods like canned
soups, salty snacks, ramen noodles, processed meats and refined soy products. Also in many “spices”, broths and “flavorings”. Unfortunately, the labels do NOT have to even
say “Contains MSG”. Many times, using the word “natural flavoring”
allows the use of MSG, without stating it on the label (thank you FDA!). Here are some label-listed ingredients that
always contain MSG: (25) • hydrolyzed vegetable protein
• hydrolyzed plant protein • hydrolyzed protein
• plant protein extract • calcium caseinate
• sodium caseinate • yeast extract
• textured protein MSG has many negative mental and physical
side-effects — however, one that most people don’t know about is that it has a “negative
nutrient partitioning” effect. This means that when you eat foods with MSG,
the food converts much faster to BODY FAT, than to be used as energy and muscle building. So you can basically eat the same amount of
calories, but get fatter because of this artificial salt. Plus, it increases your appetite and has an
addictive quality to it. THIS is why food manufacturers put it into
to so many of their “snacking” products. And, this is one reason it’s so hard to
stop eating a bag of chips or something similar. Unfortunately, all we can do is read the label
and do our best to avoid packaged foods, especially those that I mentioned earlier. Neurotoxin #3: Diacetyl (In Popcorn)
Home-popped, microwave popcorn contains butter “flavoring”, with an additive called,
diacetyl. You won’t see the word diacetyl on the label,
but if you see “artificial butter flavor” or “natural flavors,” assume the product
contains this neurotoxin. Diacetyl causes much harm to the brain, by
crossing a protective filter called the blood-brain barrier. You don’t want this. And one of the common negative effects is
Alzheimer’s. (12) So the solution to eating popcorn is just
make it at home, using an air popper. Neurotoxin #4: Mercury
In recent years, I’ve been much more concerned about mercury poisoning because I’ve been
eating more fish. I go out and eat sushi. Unfortunately, many fish have high levels
of mercury, due to environmental pollutants in the air and water. This includes one of my favorite fish, TUNA
– which I now avoid. You also want to avoid swordfish and orange
roughy. Mercury can also cross the blood-brain barrier
and accumulate in your brain – which can cause “mercury poisoning”. The first signs of mercury toxicity include
memory loss, depression, anxiety, mood swings, numbness, and tremors. (32) Fatty fish are low in mercury and the best
are wild-caught Alaskan Salmon, herring, mackerel and sardines. These fish are also highest in healthy, Omega
3 fats. Neurotoxin #5: Aluminum
The last neurotoxin you want to avoid is Aluminium, because there’s 50 years of proof that it
can lead to Alzheimer’s. Unfortunately, aluminum is very common… It’s used as an additive in baking powder
and anti-caking agents. However, the most common is found in your
drinking water (tap), antacids and deodorant (antiperspirant). So, I suggest drinking filtered water and
using regular deodorant, not antiperspirant). Of course, it’s also readily seen in aluminum
foil, cans and cookware. Instead, using cookie sheets, glass bottles
and containers. Bottom Line & Summary Neurotoxins are chemicals known to be harmful
to the brain directly and therefore, to your body, indirectly. The end result is poor memory, cognitive problems,
brain fog, poor sleep, mood disturbances, fatigue and lots of brain and mental illnesses
such as anxiety, depression, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, just to name a few. And I actually bring this up mainly due to
the fact that I have a family history on BOTH my parent’s side of some these problems
– specifically, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. Heck, when I got into my 40’s, my memory
and energy started to get worse and now that I’m almost 50 years old, this is a big worry
for myself — and, maybe something you’re concerned about as well. If you are looking for a proven solution for
improving your energy levels, dramatically improving your memory, cognition and help
reduce and even avoid “brain illnesses” such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, I suggest

help with all of these issues. So I hope this video was helpful and gave
your more clarity and something to think about. Please share healthy with a friend. Subscribe to this channel if you haven’t
