Corrosion inhibitor chemical found in thousands of hot dogs, bacon, sausage and processed meat products

A powerful corrosion inhibitor chemical used in wood stove boilers is also deliberately added to most processed meats in the United States, a Natural News investigation has found. Dozens of popular brands of hot dogs, bacon, sausage, lunch meat, sandwich ham and cured meats are sold in grocery stores across America that carry the rust inhibitor chemical known as sodium nitrite.

Sodium nitrite is a known cancer-causing chemical that’s being developed by the USDA as a deadly bait that poisons wild hogs to death. Scientific research shows that it increases the risk of pancreatic cancer by 67%, and any chemist knows that if you combine nitrites with the hydrochloric acid in the stomach and the amino acids found in meat, you get nitrosamines, widely used by the pharmaceutical industry to induce cancer in lab rats so that drug companies can test their cancer drugs. Nitrosamines are also widely documented as a highly toxic water contaminant chemical.

The FDA has known about the cancer dangers of sodium nitrite since the 1970s, but the corrupt government agency swept the issue under the rug in order to protect the profits of the processed meat industry.

Sodium nitrite is so dangerous that cancer experts have declared processed meat unsafe for human consumption. As reported on Natural News:

Hundreds of cancer researchers took part in a five-year project spanning more than 7,000 clinical studies and designed to document the links between diet and cancer. Their conclusion, published in the World Cancer Research Fund’s report, Food, Nutrition, Physical Activity and the Prevention of Cancer: a Global Perspective (2007), has rocked the health world with a declaration that all people should immediately stop buying and eating processed meat products and that all processed meat should be avoided for life!

Despite the extreme dangers of sodium nitrite to human health, a front group for the processed meat industry called MeatSafety.org actually claims sodium nitrite is good for you. On its sodium nitrite propaganda page, the front group claims, “Scientists at the National Institutes of Health over the last several years have announced a number of studies that document the health benefits of sodium nitrite. These scientists have concluded that sodium nitrite is a potential new treatment for organ transplantation, heart attacks, sickle cell disease, and leg vascular problems.”

This is the quack science equivalent to claiming “nicotine is not addictive” or “high-fructose corn syrup doesn’t promote obesity.”

The same chemical found in hot dogs, bacon and beef jerky is added to corrosion inhibitor chemical cocktails for boilers

Now, a Natural News investigation into industrial chemicals has found that sodium nitrite is the No. 1 ingredient in corrosion inhibitor cocktails for steel boilers.

Widely known as “anti-corrosion” chemicals, these formulations are added to large boilers in order to halt corrosion. Although dozens of such products exist in the marketplace, one of the best known is simply called “Woodstove Corrosion Inhibitor” from BoilerChemicals.com (Chemicals Direct). A screen shot of the Material Safety Data Sheet is shown below. Click here for a full copy of the document (PDF).

The formula consists of 20 – 40% sodium nitrite (the same sodium nitrite added to processed meats) and comes with the following warnings:

HEALTH HAZARDS:

MAY BE TOXIC. DUE TO HIGH pH, MAY CAUSE IRRITATION TO INTERNAL TISSUES. LARGE AMOUNTS CAN RESULT IN ACUTE TOXIC EFFECTS WHICH MAY BE FATAL. INHALATION OF MIST MAY BE IRRITATING TO RESPIRATORY TRACT. PROLONGED CONTACT MAY CAUSE IRRITATION. CAUSES IRRITATION, POSSIBLE BURNS AND EYE DAMAGE.

FIRST AID:

GET IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION. IF CYANOSIS (blue skin) DEVELOPS, ADMINISTER OXYGEN. REMOVE VICTIM TO FRESH AIR. IF BREATHING HAS STOPPED, GIVE ARTIFICIAL RESPIRATION. GET MEDICAL ATTENTION IF SYMPTOMS PERSIST. WASH WITH PLAIN WATER OR SOAP AND WATER. IMMEDIATELY FLUSH WITH CLEAR WATER FOR 15 MINUTES AND GET MEDICAL ATTENTION IF IRRITATION PERSISTS. NO ANTIDOTES KNOWN.

Look for sodium nitrite on food labels at any grocery store, and you’ll be astounded

Take a closer look at the ingredients for almost any processed meat product in any grocery store, and you’ll find sodium nitrite listed as an ingredient.

Meanwhile, global cancer rates are projected to skyrocket 70% over the next 20 years as more and more people consume toxic chemicals in processed foods.

Most food consumers are, quite literally, committing food suicide. If you don’t want to kill yourself with cancer, avoid sodium nitrite at all costs.
