Ensure “Nutrition” Drinks

I hope none of you are drinking, or have a family member or friend drinking, Ensure “Nutrition” Drinks.

If so, please take a look at this information.

Here’s a quote from the beginning of the article, and the article includes information from the label of what is in these products:

Carrol Krause, a former reporter for the Herald-Times of Bloomington, Indiana, had to retire from her journalism career because of an ovarian cancer diagnosis in 2014. Before she passed away in February, she wrote a blog titled ‘Stories by Carrol’ highlighting the best and the worst of her last days.

A few months ago she started having digestive issues and could no longer eat normal food. What hospice workers brought her as meal replacements horrified her.

Krause writes: “Hospice had the very best of intentions, [but] the stuff they sent over was not real FOOD. In fact, I’m outraged at the idea that they feed this stuff to dying people.”

What the hospice provided to Krause was a bag full of products by Ensure: pudding, shakes, and a drink that pretends to be apple juice.

All three are full of chemicals with about as much actual nutritional value as most commercial junk food (my emphasis), and these drinks are meant to be the nutritional lifeline for people who are extremely sick.

Ensure is owned by Abbott Nutrition, one of the worst examples of a Big Food corporation masquerading as a healthy alternative you’ll ever see. The company has deep ties to the medical industry and as such you can find their products in just about every hospital today, which is bad news for millions of patients who are just trying to get healthier.

This story is another example of how industry has us all by the throat and is choking the life out of us.  For profit.

And this is another example of how mainstream medicine ignores one of the most important chemical reactions we all have every day:  the interaction of what we eat with our bodies.
