Here in the technology and information age, we have more knowledge and advancements than ever before in history. Sixty years ago, who would have ever thought that you could send an instant message over a phone, let alone take a picture with it? Sixty years ago, who would have thought we would be capable of sending a man to the moon, but fail the war on obesity and cancer?
Isn’t it oddly shocking that America is so well-advanced in everything except health and fitness Bottled and jarred packaged goods? While the fitness industry tells us to count calories and exercise for fat loss, we grow fatter and fatter as a nation.
Running parallel to the fitness industry is the fast food chains, doing their best to keep on the top of “healthy eating” trend. It seems the fast-food industry can tailor to anyone’s dieting needs with “fat-free,” “low-calorie,” and “low-carb” menu items.
Today, fast food is considered a normal eating venture among the average person. People aren’t just eating out on special occasions or weekends anymore; they are eating out all the time. But is it the calories in fast food that’s so destructive to the body and waistline or does the problem lie deeper?
In this article I will be exploring the world of commercial dog foods and explaining just how dangerous they can be. Feeding your dog commercial dog food can be just about the same as feeding your dog poison. You could be feeding your dog toxic dog food and killing your dog at the same time without even knowing it. In this article I will give you the information you need to know about commercial dog foods, so you could avoid doing such a terrible thing to your dog.
What would you say if I told you that the deaths of thousands of dogs each day in the United States are caused by the commercial dog food which they are eating? You probably would not want to believe it. The sad part is, it’s true. Another sad thing is that these dogs are dying a very painful death. There are very few commercial dog foods which are actually healthy for your dog. A lot of people believe if the dog food package promotes that the dog food is nutritionally complete and balanced, that it is. This is not true most of the time. If your dog does not seem like his or herself and seems to be lazy all the time there is a good chance this is because of the dog food you are feeding your dog. The preservatives in commercial dog foods can cause your dog’s organs to fail, especially it’s kidneys.
The reason why most major dog food companies use preservatives in their dog food products is because the preservatives increase the self life of the dog food which in turn maximizes the dog food companies’ profits. Another scary thing is that a lot of these dog foods contain at least six deadly chemicals that have been banned from human foods. They were banned from human foods because they are known to cause the following health problems: skin cancer, kidney cancer, bladder cancer, spleen cancer, stomach cancer, liver cancer, liver dysfunction, birth defects, immune system collapse, leukemia, severe allergic reactions, blindness, hair loss, chronic diarrhea, major organ failure, and behavioral problems. Labels on dog food packages which say either “preservative-free”, “chemical-free”, or “all-natural ingredients” are not always telling the truth. Most major dog food companies have found loop-holes which allow them to print these false claims on their dog food product’s packaging. ethoxyquin, which is the most powerful of all the preservatives, is found in most dry pet foods. It also may be the most toxic of the preservatives which cause health problems in dogs. Like most preservatives ethoxyquin will probably not even be printed under the ingredients on the dog food package. I would strongly recommend that anyone who loves their dog should stop feeding them commercial dog food unless they are 100% sure that the dog food they are buying is healthy for their dog.
I learned about which commercial dog food products are healthy through a course called “Dog Food Secrets”. Dog Food Secrets gives you a list of healthy commercial dog foods. They also give you a huge collection of healthy, well-balanced dog food recipes. They explain how the dog’s age, size, and breed matters when it comes to nutrition. The amount of calories which are consumed by your dog each day is also important to your dog’s health. Basically, the Dog Food Secrets course is a step-by-step survival guide which helps your dog to live a longer and healthier life. The Dog Food Secrets course is great because not only does it show you all negative things that could harm your dog, but it also shows you all the positive things you can do to make sure your dog lives a long and healthy life.
