It is getting more and more difficult to live on healthy food. Now, raw almonds are about to disappear. This is very serious and I am not sure how many people are aware of the problem. It is sickening how the government is controlling what the people eat. Almonds are so good for you, maybe you might become healthy and be a threat to the community.
"The FDA has taken it upon themselves to say that from around Sep 1 2007 all almonds in the USA, Mexico and Canada can no longer be raw. While they will still be labelled 'raw', they will be 'pasteurized'. Some will be pasteurized with steam but many will be treated with a carcinogen Propylene Oxide."
We get the almonds from the States in Costa Rica and good thing I am going to Turkey, so I will stock up but in the long run, I just have to find a way to grow them here, or export from home.
In the meantime, go to www.livingnutz.com and click on the almond pasteurization petition link on the front of the page and sign your name as well as your state, town, and zip code.
