The truth about white bread. In Europe it is illegal to bleach flower. Dr. Harvard Wiley in 1920 won a Supreme Court case against the FDA but the precedent went unheeded. He quit and the FDA replaced him with a man employed by Pillsbury. Also see Alloxan.

flower = flour (oh well). Anyway, Alloxan was used to destroy the pancreas in rats for diabetic laboratory studies. It is also used in the manufacturing of bleached bread. Kinda makes yah wonder if it may be a causal factor in Pancreatic damage and disease in humans. By the way, this bleaching process is not allowed in Europe.

I wonder if something in it isn't addictive also. I love white bread,
luckily, I also love rye bread, whole wheat etc. etc. etc. I'm actually
a carboholic and I do avoid white bread, (but then there are cakes and
cookies and a whole assortment of goodies that are made with bleached white
flour). So I'm probably a goner.

Thank you Gregory, at least it didn't make me cry.

Oh sure mess up coke cola:) just kidding
But another thing I've noticed about bread now is they're adding tons of folic acid. They're really pushing folic acid these days.

Always worries me when they push things since we all know they really don't give a damn about any of us.

Thanks Gregory. When I was a little girl I remember my great grandfather never allowed bleached flour or white sugar in the house. He knew about the dangers long before I was born. hmmm...that reminds me of great-gramma's heavy brown breads....yum!
