Skip to comments.There’s metal in your dairy products (titanium dioxide)

How about a side of silver with your yogurt? According to an ongoing inventory by the Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies (PEN), 96 food items containing nano-sized particles of titanium dioxideincluding many found in the dairy aislehave hit the market. And that number is up from just eight foods in 2008. [ ]
So whats the big deal? In short, too many unanswered questions. In 2012, the FDA released a draft revealing its many safety concerns about nanoparticles in food. Specifically, they worry that nanoparticles alter the bioavailability, or how much your body can absorb of a substance, and may cause unforeseen safety or health issues that arent present in traditionally manufactured foods.

Will Titanium dioxide make me bullet proof?
So, FDA is worried about a nano particle yet is fine with GMO. ok.
There’s a big difference between oxides and ores, and metal salts, and the pure metal. And different metals cause problems in different forms. Titanium dioxide is *widely* used as a food coloring, and in plenty of other human-interactive applications like sunscreen and makeup. On the other hand, sodium is fairly dangerous in metallic form, but is biologically useful in its salt form when combined with chlorine (another chemical that is horrifically dangerous to life on its own).
As an example in the other direction, pure metallic (elemental) mercury is only modestly harmful by itself, mostly because it emits mercury vapor, but its ethyl and methyl forms are highly bioavailable and permanently damage critical cellular functions.
As long as there isn’t any Kryptonite dioxide in it, then I’m safe.
About 3 out of every 4 dairy cows slaughtered for ground beef has some degree of hardware disease. In most cases it isn’t serious enough to puncture an organ and cause peritonitis, but it is certainly present in trace amounts to beef consumers. I imagine the problem is equally widespread in beef steers as well. You find roofing nails, bailing wire, food packaging ... all kinds of things; you put it in front of them and they will eat it.
Kryptonite does not form oxides.
It does if you mix it with milk.
Are we eating robobeef?
Nobody does that.
If cattle ate mostly grass then they would tend to consume a sufficient amount of minerals. However, if they are mostly being fed corn then I could see where they might have mineral deficiencies which they compensate for by eating whatever iron objects are ready to eat.
Most feedstock eats a certain amount of hardware. Been going on as long as there have been nails. Most farmers don’t even refer to it as “hardware disease,” just as plain ‘ol “hardware.”
If it induced spontaneous healing, obamacare would ban it.
First you have to mix the milk with Hershey's syrup, then you slowly add the Kryptonite and it will oxidize into Kryptonite Dioxide. It oxidizes faster if you put in in a blender. But then it becomes unstable. That's how Lex Luther lost his hair.
Never heard of yellowcake kryptonite?
So that is why I have insomnia, I’m leaving the Kryptonite out of my bedtime milk?
What you do find, and often mentioned on the label, is silicon dioxide. Sometimes that occurs also as sodium aluminosilicate. since I have a B. S. in Ceramic Engineering, I am aware of the significance of these materials.
I thought Valerie Plame’s husband put an end to those silly rumors years ago...
I really hated that III movie, TBH. So much other stuff out of the comic books to mine; I thought that they were going to do more of it after the Phantom Zone criminals appeared in II. (Brainiac? Bizarro? Darkseid? Mr. Mxyzptlk, even??)
I just swallowed a big bunch of magnesium.
[now I gotta be careful not to scrape along the pavement at high speed]
Cattle do not willingly eat metal; it is only by happenstance in the harvested grains.
An addition, “...and plants such as alfalfa, straw (shouldn’t eat), etc.” Most hay bailing nowadays uses plastic twine and plastic sheets, whereas in the olden days, it was wire, twine, or merely stacked loose.
If you dont know that someone is there because it has no discernible effect, then it is probably not worth worrying about. It is not until someone TELLS you its there that people start worrying about things. For example, if someone placed a cookie on a toilet seat and then put it into a cookie jar, no one would ever be able to tell. If you tell them a cookie in that jar was on a toilet seat they would throw all the cookies away.
Some folks overdo it, though.
Well now milk drinkers will be able to honestly say that they have the metal to be marines.
In the olden days they used to add powdered chalk to milk and flour.
Titanium Dioxide? That’s mighty white of them! (subtle artist joke)
