    Check fish food ingredients!!

    Post by zeketaz on Mon Sep 19, 2011 5:50 pm

    I was surfing through another forum and they had a topic on Ethoxyquin. It is known to cause cancer in cats and dogs and is an ingredient in dog and cat food.

    Wikipedia says it's been shown to cause mortality in fish.

    It is also used in preserving spices and as a pesticide. :O

    I for one am now checking all ingredients for this mess and it's jaw dropping sad it is a pesticide and being fed to people and animals.

    Look at a can of soup at the grocery store you will see all the chemicals and no real veggies or meat.

    You are just helping me with my conspiracy theory. You know they did a skin cancer study between blacks in the U.S. and Africans and the U.S. cancer rate is more than 100 times than of the Africans. Now you can't say it's from the sun any more because those natives are exposed all day every day. I say it's from all the chemicals in the food that "react" from the sun. Also the chemicals in sun block are far worse than the burn you get. Lastly we are all getting fat because the meat supply is loaded with growth hormones.
    Except Zeke you eat as many burgers as you can get your hands on you poor little thing. Razz

    I use plecocane (not a joke that's what it's called), No idea what is in it but the fish thrive on it.
    My secondary fish food is spirulina20, and a couple others from the same manufacturer as spirulina.
