I have been an unwitting user of this "treatment," since carrageenan seems to have been slipped into most food products. In terms of its healthfulness, it ranks right up there with cigarettes and asbestos, should be banned, and the public advised of its dangers.

I am a lab tech. Labs use carageenan as a laxative in lab animals because it is very irritating to the digestive tract. No surprise that it causes cancer. George Bush gutted the FDA as soon as he was elected and carrageenen soon popped up in dairy products and processed meats.

Every time I get crap cramps I have learned to back track and investigate my recent food choices, like almond milk or Coffee Mate both with carrageenan. Nothing else gives me the explosive gut wrenching laxative effect. Could not be more convinced that some innocent poor souls are suffering needlessly. Spread the word. Also this is not treatment so disregard the questionnaire.

I find this article misleading, inaccurate, and disturbing. My opinion of this site for sound information has thus plummeted. Carrageenan is used regularly in lab rats to INDUCE inflammation in order to test medicines and treatments. The comment that it "draws water into the GI tract" is because the BODY is doing it's thing to RID the GI tract of a Harmful Substance and irritant. It is used as an "emulsifier" rampantly in the USA, and should come with Warnings regarding its use. Ridiculous information here. FDA approved means nothing--they are too intertwined with big pharma and major corporations to be believable. Like others here metioned, everytime I used my protein shake mix I became bloated with diarrhea, sometimes it was worse than an intestinal virus. Avoid this food additive

This article is outrageous. Do your self a favor and Google “MOUSE PAW EDEMA”. A 1987 report by the National Institute of Health reveals it is a laboratory procedure using CARRAGEENAN TO INDUCE INFLAMMATION INTO RATS LIMBS SO THAT “ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DRUGS MAY BE TESTED/DISCOVERED!!!!!! As well, I recently learned about this poison after my 2 year 10 month old cat slowly died over a span of 2 years of simply inflammation. The vet could not explain it! Although I can, due to feeding him canned cat food (Wellness) with Carrageenan everyday. It broke down his intestine with ulcers and created a non-cancerous growth. The vet assumed surgery would fix his problem but the inflammation lead to multiple other physical side effect including retina detachment in his eye and urinary problem that when combined took his life! He had no cancer, no infection, nor any disease. Simply intense inflammation through out his entire body caused by Carrageenan based on the evidence of laboratory use for “MOUSE PAW EDEMA”. You will also find that this “food grade Carrageenan” is not stable, it breaks down into the toxin it really is.
