Ensuring a Safe Food Supply
Should this even be an issue?
Our tainted food supply.
Can we afford to stand by silently while big corporations poison our foods without any restrictions?
Where is our Government oversight?
Food supplies embracing profits over safety?
Where are the minds and hearts of the food manufacturers that this should even be an issue for the consumers of the products they put out there for our consumption?
Has GREED really tainted everything that was decent, trustworthy, honest and reliable in the past?
Has the value of money totally exceeded the value of life itself?
I am adding this link to the ConsumerReports.Org article on Arsenic in Juice: Apple and Grape juices and bottled water that may be killing you and your children.
If you value your life, the lives of your children, friends and family this is a must read to open your eyes as to WHAT OUR GOVERNMENT IS NOT DOING TO PROTECT US.
This information is quite alarming, disturbing and outrageous. There is simply no excuse for this kind of assault on the American people. All for the sake of profit by the GREEDY corporate monsters that want to fully control our government, our lives, and our destinies. This must stop. We must all stand united in rebellion against these atrocities by Corporate America - or are these really terrorist attacks on the American people by our enemies? Within or outside our borders?
This article lists the signs and symptoms of arsenic and lead poisoning that you may have been, or might be exposed to from the foods we buy, our drinking water, or both. It is imperative that we know the signs and symptoms and do not hesitate to ask your physicians to do this simple blood test for arsenic and lead levels. We must look for our own safety first, as we can no longer count on our government, or food manufactures to provide safety measures to protect our health, or the health of our friends, family and our children.
- Our Tainted Food Supply: Chicken From China? Really?
Should we be importing foods from 3rd world countries with no regulatory control on their products?
No one speaks for the people
Can we survive these assaults, to all flanks of the general public by terrorists, corporate America, religious fanatics, and even our very own government politicians? Sometimes it seems like there is no safety nets left for us to count on, to protect ourselves, to protect our children and the future generations that will feel the brunt of today's actions, or inactions, the most.
Our greatest weapon today is our voice, in concert, demanding that sanity be restored to our way of life, and our government. WE MUST STAND UNITED AND SUPPORT THE "OCCUPY WALL STREET MOVEMENT". It is our only remaining defense against this massive assault on the American People.

Profits above all else
Addendum to the original article:
This is an excerpt from an email i received today. It is frightening to say the least. Can we really do away with government agencies that purportedly protect the American citizens from the Corporate Greed, when their motto has become: "profit above all else" and that includes public safety. I am sharing their article in total, per their request, to enlighten people about the hidden hazards in our foods.
If you’ve eaten rice today, you might have elevated levels of arsenic in your system. Concerned? So are we.
Consumer Reports just tested more than 200 rice products for arsenic, and we also studied arsenic levels in people who had just eaten rice products.
We found troubling levels of arsenic in many of the rice products we tested. And much higher arsenic levels in people who had just consumed rice.
Our laws limit arsenic in drinking and bottled water but set no limits on arsenic in most food and drinks – despite the EPA’s stance that no level of exposure to the carcinogenic form of arsenic is ‘safe.’
We launched our rice investigation to follow up our earlier tests that found arsenic in some apple and grape juice samples. Since rice is grown in standing water, it’s more prone than other crops to absorb arsenic from pesticides and fertilizer, as well as arsenic that is naturally present in the environment.
This study has important health information and consumption advice that every consumer should have. Please share this with friends and family so they can get the facts and join us in action.
