Warning, Growing Organic Food May be a Crime

August 04, 2010. Before this legislation was passed...

Selling Your Produce at the Farmers Market Can Get You Time...

If you or the farmer you bought produce, eggs or milk from did not register their seeds, their plans and a detailed report, it could be a crime.

Not just fruits, herbs and veggies, critters too. Fresh eggs? Milk, could be a crime. Lulu World = everything is upside down for ONE corporation to make Billions and have all patents to all FOOD

Keep them Out of Our Gardens and Small Farms

For years Monsanto and Dow have been conducting numerous Food - Pesticide experiments on Food and Humans. They have finally managed to have a Bill introduced into the U.S. House of Representatives HR875. This was Sponsored by Representative Laura DeRosa. The Senate version of this Bill is S425.

Already the HR875 bill has 40 supporters. Perhaps you as an American feels you have done your duty by voting in the National or Primary elections. This type of thinking is why laws and rules are so skewered and benefit large industry and dirty polluters. When rulemaking is in process, there is a limited time for Public Comments, and there are often Public Meetings. Being an activist most of my life, I can attest that often 4 or 5 citizens will show up or respond, while hundreds of those in Industry show up, write letters, hire attorneys and make sure their input is felt. This lack of activism on 97% of the U.S. Citizenry must change or we are doomed.

Today, I am making a plea. If you care about the small farmer, if you love the idea of eating good and wholesome food from your own garden without interference from a Government dictated by chemical manufacturers, then I beg you to contact your Senator and Congress persons today! Demand they vote against another Biological experiment by the same companies who brought you Agent Orange.

Dow and Monsanto have long, and horrible histories of leaving areas so toxic, these lands, and waters, cannot be used by humans any longer. Today, stand up and refuse to have our futures polluted even further by genetically altered food, and seeds that are created in a laboratory - simply for a few stockholder's bottom lines.

I noticed one YouTube video tried to say that all of this will be monitored and will be run by the FDA...This is the same FDA who approves prescriptions and other food sources that are deadly and create new diseases. Please stand up and be counted. Leave a possible healthy future of food for this world. Please, Don't Do Nothing!

11.11.10 - This will be one of those things we can come back and read, remembering we were given ample warning these changes would affect those who only seek to feed their families and neighbors.

It is 07/22/2014, and all that we feared came to pass. Many organic farms and stores are being raided, their livestock destroyed, and their farms ruined.

It is time we all wake up to our duty to involve ourselfs in the wellfare of society. It is also the same organization who passed through meat from cows with mad cow disease. Whoever thought it was okay for cows to be cannibals? They eat grass. We cannot afford to loose farms to this kind of thinking. It makes me wonder if this is meant to decrease the population by introducing more illness and cancer.

Sorry for the rant. Good point.

My friend's father worked for Dow and their experimenting. Of course he died early from cancer. Why are they coming up with such crazy laws?

Dear SamMcNut,

Thank you for your rant...this is certainly something to rant about, especially to any other person who will pick up a phone and call their Washington Reps and Senators. We must not let this happen!

Dear Barbara kay, Thank you for stopping by and leaving your comment. I could not verify this, but from what I understand Rep DeRosa is wife to a Monsanto Board Member. The simple explanation is Greed. The purpose of this Hub is to Stop such laws from passing. Please contact your Senators and Reps and tell them to vote NO on these Bills. If they vote for them, remember this in November. Again, thank you!

Thank YOU for bringing this to our attention, I'm an advocate for organic mainly due to the dreaded abuses of pesticides, the government just does not care about feeding poision to the masses, Ugh YOU CAN COUNT ON ME! Sharing, facing, tweeting and contacting to raise some ...

Thank you Katiem2! I remember when Round-Up was touted as Biodegradeable! They use the words "sustainablility" as a buzz word, making them sound like they are environmentally friendly...their many environmental records available at www.epa.gov / superfund / NPL sites prove they destroy an area, then abandon it, get a big tax write off, and leave the cost of being poisoned and maintenence to the Cities and States...

I love the call to action. It is so incredibly important that we contact our congress members when we feel that a bill is not in the interest of the people. I'll do some research and then make some calls and get some friends to do the same. I'm part of several local enviro groups in CT, we can probably get a number of consituents to contact Laura.

Yeah! Thank you LRCBlogger! It must be soon, they are pushing this quickly. They were hoping it was not given much press.

Thank you Healing Touch. It is really hitting home, I got a thinly veiled death threat over this today from a FB user...woowie...It is what the Bills don't say, and the lack of their reach that is the most worrysome. In Arkansas, entire crops from farmers in the same general area as M, have been sued, and required to destroy their crops, because the bio-engineered seed is protected under some kinda patent...they have the attorneys to make sure it sticks...

The people who pushed this through, keep saying it is for food safety...It has been big industry who is already supposedly regulated by FDA and USDA who have spread disease in our food. With no limits on their reach, it will hit home. They are already hitting Natural Health Food Stores, coming in armed and closing them down...Who does that over food? I can think of one company...

I showed up to a March Against Monsanto march earlier this year, and there were only like 10 people there! Most of the people I talk to either don't know about the issues at all or are completely outraged but claim to have no time to do anything. I can admit I fall into the too busy category alot, but man we are going to regret it if we don't step it up!!! Great hub, thank you for writing.

krazikat, I feel ya! I have been writing about environmental issues for many years, putting myself at risk, and I think if it is not a disaster or horror they can feel and see, it means little. Maybe it's just the heat...Thank you. Peace
