In 2007 the criminal German government did this:
– Bundesregierung erhöht Gift-Grenzwerte in Obst und Gemüse (Greenpeace):
Neue Greenpeace-Untersuchung belegt Aufweichen des Verbraucherschutzes
Hunderte Grenzwerte für Pestizide in Obst und Gemüse hat das Bundesministerium für Ernährung, Landwirtschaft und Verbraucherschutz (BMELV) zwischen den Jahren 2004 und 2006 angehoben. Das bedeutet für Obst und Gemüse, dass ganz legal mehr Gift auf den Teller kommt. Nach einer neuen Untersuchung im Auftrag von Greenpeace sind die Steigerungen erheblich – im Schnitt haben die Beamten die Grenzwerte um das 33fache erhöht. Gerade bei bekannten Pestizid-Spitzenreitern mit den meisten Überschreitungen, wie Tafeltrauben, Salaten, Kräuter oder Beeren, hob das Ministerium die Grenzwerte am stärksten an, jeweils um über das 500fache.
“Es ist unglaublich. Die Verbraucherschützer aus dem Ministerium machen konsequent das Gegenteil von dem, was notwendig wäre, um die Gesundheit der Verbraucher und die Umwelt zu schützen”, sagt Manfred Krautter, Chemie-Experte von Greenpeace. “Minister Seehofer muss diese Praxis sofort stoppen. Wir brauchen keine Legalisierung von immer mehr Gift im Essen, sondern wirksame Kontrollen, damit belastete Lebensmittel vom Markt verschwinden.”
Here is the terrible ‘Google Translate’ translation:
– Federal government increases poison limits on fruit and vegetables (Greenpeace):
New Greenpeace research shows softening of consumer protection
Hundreds limits for pesticides in fruit and vegetables has increased, the Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection (BMELV) between 2004 and 2006. That means fruit and vegetables that is quite legal, more poison on your plate. According to a new study commissioned by Greenpeace, the increases are substantial – on average, the officers, the limits increased by 33 times. Especially with known pesticide-runners with the most violations, such as table grapes, salads, herbs and berries, the Ministry raised the limits on the most, each by more than 500 times.
“It ‘s unbelievable. The consumer protection from the Ministry consistently the opposite of what would be necessary to protect the health of consumers and the environment, ” said Manfred Krautter, chemistry expert at Greenpeace. “Minister Seehofer must stop this practice immediately. We do not need to legalize more and more poison in the food, but effective controls to ensure that contaminated food from the market.”
And the German government couldn’t care less (from the article below):
“Consumer protection pressure group Foodwatch said Monday its own tests of a contaminated sample was 164 times over the legally tolerated dioxin level.
The group concluded the dioxin came from pesticide use on crops that were later used to produce the fat and urged the government to force livestock feed producers to probe all their ingredients for excessive dioxin levels.
Agriculture Minister Aigner declined to comment on Foodwatch’s report.”
She did not even say a word that they will look into Foodwatch’s report.
All governments know the studies that show that pesticides are a cause of Alzheimer’s, MS, cancer etc. They know this.
They know that Aspartame causes cancer and that MSG is the best fertilizer for cancer and that both destroy the brain.
They know that fluoride destroys health like nothing else. They know that they are killing their citizens.
And people call us fanatics, because we are only eating organic food.

BERLIN – Livestock feed producers must face stricter controls and Germany and other EU nations must have better, more centralized dioxin monitoring, German officials proposed Monday after high dioxin levels prompted the closure of thousands of farms.
Agriculture Minister Ilse Aigner said officials were working nonstop to find out who and what had contaminated the feed sent to thousands of farms and vowed tough legal action against those responsible.
“The damage that has been done is immense,” she told reporters after a meeting with feed producers. “There must and will be consequences in this case.”
