Five Bucks Five Bucks Five Bucks

Maybe Bush had it right when he said it was hard to put food on your family.
Would you like extra toppings with that?
The Pizza Hut chain is using a silicone-based toxin, Polydimethylsiloxane, on their frozen pizza products, as well as out-of-the-oven pizzas. The fast food franchise is using this poison as a stabilizer for cheese that is used on its pizza products. The company defends its use of this toxin by claiming that polydimethylsiloxane is a necessary emulsifier and preservative. Pizza Hut pizza packages lists polydimethysiloxane as "other ingredients."

The Dow Chemical Corporation is responsible for the manufacture and distribution of polydimethylsiloxane. This substance is used by food processing factories as a de-foaming agent in their commercial boilers.
Polydimethylsiloxane is created by mixing a silicone emulsifier to water, which forms a 0.05% emulsifier solution. Pizza Hut sprays this toxin on their cheese. It is applied at a scale of 1.75 parts of the solution per 100 parts by weight of cheese. This poison is used by other food manufacturing companies as well.

Another carcinogenic substance, among many.
Formaldehyde is a carcinogen used as a food preserver, as well as mortuaries.
When heated at temperatures of 150 degrees C (330 F) and higher, polydimethylsiloxane breaks down into formaldehyde.
Frozen pizza "treats", whether made by Pizza Hut or other frozen pizza makers, are cooked in household ovens at 375 F to 425 F (187 C -- 197 C).  link to www.itcilo.it

Is this what the ruling elite means by wanting to preserve their "civilizations?"
No Child Left Unpreserved
Pizzas like these are served to children at school cafeterias across America and Canada, as well as other technologic processed "food." Parents should be concerned that their children are ingesting this garbage as part of local, state and federal guidelines for nutrition in school lunch programs.

The following is included in the online patent:

Does anyone still eat at Pizza Hut? I haven't gone there since high school. I mean, c'mon, that stuff barely tastes like Pizza. I figure anyone going there deserves whatever they end up eating.
