The Food Revolution: What You Are Not Being Told
What Happened to The FDA Monitoring Basic Food Standards?
There are many things that we eat that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), has been turning a blind eye toward. For a spokesman for our health and safety, they certainly have not been doing an adequate job. As an example, since when is titanium part of the four basic food groups? The last that I heard, it was classified as a metal on the chemical periodic table. I’m specifically referring to Dannon and other yogurt companies that feel that they should whiten the food in order to make it more appealing. Let’s face it folks, we’re not looking for paint, we’re interested in food. Take a look at this article, and judge for yourselves. http://forcechange.com/126785/tell-yogurt-company-to-stop-adding-metal-to-its-products/.
Fast Food Contains Poison?
And while we’re on the topic, what about McDonald’s and its ubiquitous ‘pink slime’ in the hamburger to make it appear pink and fresh? Let me cite an example in foreign countries that cook their meat to well done in order to kill the bacteria of bad meat. It is a well-known fact that meat cooked to well done equates to 165 degrees Fahrenheit. If anything can live in that temperature, God bless it, but it is no excuse to serve bad meat in this country, let alone lace it with chemicals that our trusting public is eating and hoping that they will live another day to pay the bills.
Food Borne Illness at Its Highest Levels
Then why, oh why, are there more food borne illnesses now than there have ever been? Can you help me out here, Food and Drug Administration? No? You’re too busy trying to put the halt on natural food products being sold to the public?
And On the Other Hand…Was a Glove
Nothing personal, my friends, but I was raised on milk from the local dairy when I was growing up in Maine that was not yet pasturized. I am pushing sixty years old, but if you looked at me, you’d never know it. I can still do heavy physical labor and outlast most of the people half my age that didn’t have the luxury of eating organic food like I did. What is wrong with this picture?
Why Is it illegal to sell non-pasturized milk and goat's milk, but the items that I've just outlined are all right?
You Are What You Eat...
And Monsanto? Who in their right minds puts weed killer on seeds and expects the public to eat the fruits of that labor? I might be a chemist and privy to more knowledge than the average person, but the half life on some of these poisons will outlive our grandkids that haven’t even been born yet. Need proof?
How about this? There was a chemical company in Michigan that manufactured DDT called Velsicol Chemical Company, the former Michigan Chemical. This company manufactured pesticides until 1963, and the worms in the ground on the property that was torn down is killing birds fifty years later. If you’d like to see more about that mystery, read what was published in Scientific American: http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/ddt-still-killing-birds-in-michigan/.
What Did They Know in the 1960s?
Now here’s a sad fact of life. People were ridiculed in the 1960’s and now still for refusing to use pesticides on their lawns to keep the grass looking pretty without weeds.
Those people using weed killers and lawn services also had their dogs and their children crawling around on those lawns. Would you do the same thing to your children after someone told you that those were safe chemicals? All they needed was two hours to dissipate? Right.
Monsanto, referred to as “Monsatan” by some, does that ring a bell? Didn’t they also make Agent Orange for the United States government for the Viet Nam War? Wasn’t the purpose of this chemical to poison the enemy? Yes, folks, it killed people, and those it didn’t kill, it created birth defects for the children of the people that were doused with it.
Truth is Hidden in a Variety of Ways
I attended an American History conference in New York City a number of years ago, and one of the speakers was a woman whose deceased husband was a journalist/photographer. He was there to try to uncover facts about the war, like the harm that Agent Orange was causing. What killed him? It was the exposure to Agent Orange that he was filming proof for that it was harmful. I saw footage first hand that our soldiers were handling hoses and the chemical bare handed, being told that it wouldn’t hurt them. They believed it, and returned home sterile, later developing cancer and other horrible diseases that were linked to Agent Orange.
The proof is in the pudding, folks. No major television station would air this documentary that I saw in New York, because the big players fund these stations. That's why this documentary only made it to film festivals. You are being told what others want you to hear, and believe me, these people that are and were playing God with your lives are not losing any sleep over it. They might not even fully know the truth themselves, puppets in the Russian roulette of what life has become for many.
There Is Nothing to Fear But Fear Itself
Don’t be afraid to question what is allowed to go on your tables any more. Yes, organic food not laced with pesticides costs a little more, but it is a lot less expensive than it used to be. Why is that? It’s all in supply and demand. If less people want a better product, it costs the public more to have it. If more people are getting on the bandwagon to eat better, the costs are shared by many, therefore, it is less expensive. Consider what you are feeding yourselves and your family. Ask why the cost of cancer drugs are so expensive and there is no alternative or help for those that cannot afford these drugs that the drug companies are making millions from.
Ask why insurance companies will not insure you now if you have genetically-predisposed diseases in your family.
Life should not have to be a gamble when it comes to eating good and decent food. You work hard, and deserve the best. You can’t tell me that GMO-laced products are going to give you that.
And I haven’t even discussed the ground water from these chemicals that the weed killers are going. Think about it…
