Monsanto Mistake Spawns Widespread Crop Losses:

By Dr. Mercola

After two decades of planting glyphosate-tolerant crops, resistant weeds have overtaken farm fields across the U.S., leaving farmers to battle an increasingly difficult situation. At least 35 weed species are now resistant to glyphosate, the primary ingredient in Monsanto’s broad-spectrum herbicide Roundup.1

Studies2 have also linked glyphosate to increases in Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS), a deadly plant disease that causes plants to turn yellow and die — including crops that have never been sprayed with the herbicide but were planted in a field that received an application the previous season.

In an effort to skirt disaster, Monsanto developed a new breed of genetically engineered (GE) seeds tolerant to other pesticides besides Roundup. This, they claim, is the answer to rising weed resistance — a side effect the company said would not occur from the use of their GE seeds in the first place.

We now know, without any shadow of a doubt, they were wrong. And there’s every reason to believe they are wrong about their next generation of GE seeds as well. If anything, it will likely boost weed resistance, continue driving the increase in pesticide use and make our food even more toxic. Continue reading »

Soros Group ‘Trained’ Socialists To Combat Will Of The People:

Leaked documents from the Open Society Foundations show the group to have actively trained socialist MEPs to combat populist parties and shut down free speech.

A series of documents leaked from George Soros’ Open Society Foundations have revealed a number of startling revelations about the work of the NGO when it comes to combating what they refer to as “xenophobic parties” in countries around Europe. According to at least one document the foundations has been calling for the censorship of language in the European parliament they term as hateful and have been actively working with various socialist members of the European parliament to train them on how to  combat “xenophobic populism.” Continue reading »

“The bill claims that depriving minors of animal products can cause neurological disorders and anemia by leaving them iron-, zinc-, and vitamin-B12-deficient.”

Poor gorillas, orang-utans, elephants, horses, deers and cattle. They are all vegans and must suffer from neurological disorders and anemia, being iron-, zinc-, and vitamin-B12-deficient.

Poor, weak, suffering animals …

Ups …

bull-elephantGorilla

The meat of some of these animals is considered to be the best source of vitamin-B12 and protein, but where did they get their B12 and protein from???

Maybe they should jail all these animals as well, because they too are making their children go vegan.

That said, being a vegan does not automatically mean eating healthy.

There are lots of vegans that have a horrible, horrible diet. 

And yes, children’s health would suffer immensely from such a crappy diet, almost like being on a McD junk food diet.

fat-kids-mcdonalds

However, there also have been “brilliant” parents, with “normal” eating habits, who fed their toddlers left over pizza (or whatever kind of food has been left over) by blending it in a high speed mixer and that way killed their children with this newly created baby food diet.

Most children suffer greatly from eating a SAD (Standard American Diet).

A carefully selected vegan diet or even a raw vegan diet is absolutely great for your health and for your children.


Mussolini Would Be Proud: Italy Proposes Jailing “Reckless” Vegan Parents:

If parliamentarian Elvira Savino has her way, Italian parents who insist on a vegan diet for their children will risk up to four years in jail. In her shockingly tyrannical over-reach, the center-right party member seeks to “stigmatize the reckless and dangerous eating behavior imposed by parents” who make children go vegan.

“I have nothing against vegans or veganism as long as it is a free choice by adults,” she told Reuters in a telephone interview on Wednesday, days after she presented the proposed law in the lower house Chamber of Deputies.

“I just find it absurd that some parents are allowed to impose their will on children in an almost fanatical, religious way, often without proper scientific knowledge or medical consultation,” she said.

“Do-it-yourself on these matters terrorizes me.”

As GrubStreet.com reports, under the ‘Savino’ law, according to La Repubblica, raising anyone under the age of 17 on such a diet would be an offense punishable by up to six years in prison. Continue reading »

Fresh-Produce-Delivery-Organic-Basket-Vegetables-Fruits

Seven days on an organic diet eliminates 90 percent of pesticide accumulation in humans:

Once people fully understand just how toxic pesticides truly are, their first thought is usually, “How can I get these deadly chemicals out of my body?” Pesticide use is so prevalent that it might seem impossible to avoid it entirely upon first glance, particularly when you take the concept of pesticide drift into account. In addition, some people shrug off the evidence of pesticide toxicity, figuring it’s already in their body and it’s too late to do anything about it.

The good news is that this is not the losing proposition that it might initially appear to be. In fact, a 2014 study published in Environmental Research showed that eating an organic diet for just one week reduces the amount of pesticide poisoning in the body by 90 percent. That kind of reduction is nothing to scoff at, and the fact that it can happen so quickly and easily is icing on the cake.

The Burrito Index: Consumer Prices Have Soared 160% Since 2001:

Calculating the real inflation rate

In our household, we measure inflation with the “Burrito Index”: How much has the cost of a regular burrito at our favorite taco truck gone up?

Since we keep detailed records of expenses (a necessity if you’re a self-employed free-lance writer), I can track the real-world inflation of the Burrito Index with great accuracy: the cost of a regular burrito from our local taco truck has gone up from $2.50 in 2001 to $5 in 2010 to $6.50 in 2016.

That’s a $160% increase since 2001; 15 years in which the official inflation rate reports that what $1 bought in 2001 can supposedly be bought with $1.35 today. Continue reading »

EU Commission Allows ‘Toxic GM Soybeans’ for Import:

According to news agencies, the EU Commission has allowed the import of genetically engineered soybeans produced by Bayer and Monsanto. The imported soybeans can be used in food and feed despite unresolved concerns about health risks.

These crops can be sprayed with a combination of glyphosate and other herbicides such as dicamba or isoxaflutole. Market authorization has been issued after massive pressure from industry, which already sold its patented seeds in the US for cultivation and now wants to import the harvest to the EU within the next months.

123,000 Venezuelans cross border shopping for scarce food:

SAN ANTONIO DEL TACHIRA, Venezuela — More than 100,000 Venezuelans, some of whom drove through the night in caravans, crossed into Colombia over the weekend to hunt for food and medicine that are in short supply at home.It was the second weekend in a row that Venezuela’s socialist government opened the long-closed border with Colombia, and by 6 a.m. Sunday, a line of would-be shoppers snaked through the entire town of San Antonio del Tachira. Some had traveled in chartered buses from cities 10 hours away.

America Wastes About HALF The Food That It Produces While Hunger Runs Rampant Around The Globe:

Is the United States the most wasteful nation on the entire planet?  We are all certainly guilty of wasting food.  Whether it is that little bit that you don’t want to eat at the end of a meal, or that produce that you forgot about in the back of the refrigerator that went moldy, the truth is that we could all do better at making sure that good food does not get wasted.  It can be tempting to think that wasting food is not a big deal because we have so much of it, but an increasing number of people around the world are really hurting these days.  In fact, it has been estimated that there are more than a billion hungry people around the globe right now.  So as a society we need to figure out how to waste a whole lot less food and how to get it into the mouths of those that really need it.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, close to a third of all food in the United States gets wasted after it gets to the store.  This is commonly referred to as “downstream” waste.  When you add all of this “downstream” waste up, it comes to a grand total of 133 billion pounds of food each yearContinue reading »

This Is How Venezuelan Truckers Avoid Looters:

You know it’s bad in the socialist utopia when…

Venezuelan trucks – afraid of looting – now carry “Not Transporting Food” signs…

venzezuela-hunger

h/t @AKurmanaev

Who can blame them – no one wants the money anymore, it’s worthless – as many food trucks now require armed guards to keep them safe

With delivery trucks under constant attack, the nation’s food is now transported under armed guard. Soldiers stand watch over bakeries. The police fire rubber bullets at desperate mobs storming grocery stores, pharmacies and butcher shops. A 4-year-old girl was shot to death as street gangs fought over food.

Venezuela is convulsing from hunger.

DARK Act Passes Senate Committee, A Coup For Big Ag Corporations:

On Tuesday June 23rd, it was reported that the Senate’s Agriculture Committee had reached a deal on GMO food labeling and what is essentially a slightly modified version of what clean food proponents have labeled the DARK Act (Denying Americans the Right to Know Act).

Senators, corporations and the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association are hailing the bill as the victory for the art of compromise. While labeling proponents and otherwise thinking Americans realize that the bill is nothing more than an attempt to prevent them from actually knowing what they’re eating as well as an attempt to prevent states from making that information available to them.

Jean Halloran, director of food policy initiatives for Consumers Union, the policy and advocacy division of Consumer Reports, issued this statement in response: Continue reading »

FEMA Contractor: Unrest After 395% Food Price Spike Coming Soon:

Preparations by various cogs of the national security complex, including FEMA, indicate a coming worldwide food shortage — and a resulting crisis marked by extreme civil unrest around the globe.

As Motherboard noted of two reports published previously by CNA Corporation, but which largely escaped attention, the world’s food supply could be insufficient to maintain even current populations much further into the future. And the crisis — which several factors indicate may already be underway — may begin to worsen considerably as early as 2020.

Employing a desktop game simulation of the conditions of a global food shortage, titled “Food Chain Reaction,” CNA’s Institute for Public Research brought together “65 officials from the US, Europe, Africa, India, Brazil, and key multilateral and intergovernmental institutions,” Motherboard explained. And the Institute, which oversaw the simulation, “primarily provides scientific research services for the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency [FEMA].” Continue reading »

Business-Man-Junk-Food-Healthy-Bridge

Top 7 alarming food modifications you should avoid at ALL COSTS:

There are many ways corporations modify food products with chemicals in order to increase sales. They use toxic chemicals to extend shelf life, make food look more attractive, kill bugs in the fields, stave off mold and mildew, kill fungus and bacteria, add flavor back in after chemicals kill the taste, and actually make people depressed and anxious to fuel the chemical medicine industry. Most of it’s nothing new, and has been going on since WWII. GMOs have been in existence for 30 years now, though few people are aware of that.

The cumulative effect of poisons in the body is something you can’t sue one food manufacturer for, or one doctor, or one chemical company. The corporate food industry in America is sinister and insidious. They know they can’t be held accountable for long-term chronic sicknesses from which so many Americans suffer. The FDA could care less about Americans’ health and well-being. Continue reading »

Iconic pork sausages banned from Swiss school menus, MPs outraged

Iconic pork sausages banned from Swiss school menus, MPs outraged:

The decision to serve only pork-free lunches in several schools in Basel Canton, Switzerland, has been blasted by the country’s conservatives, who accuse local authorities of giving in to religious minorities.

Four schools in the Binningen district of Basel Canton won’t have pork on their menu in the next academic year, the local council ruled last week.

But the decision was strongly condemned by the conservative Swiss People’s Party (SVP), which argued that pork sausages were an integral part of Switzerland’s cuisine and culture.

“We are outraged. When we first heard [about it] we thought we weren’t reading it right,” Susanna Keller, Swiss People’s Party representative, is cited by Basellandschaftliche Zeitung paper. Continue reading »

Govt Bans Growing Food, Forces Family to Destroy Front Yard Garden — Now They’re Fighting Back:

Miami, FL — Tom Carroll and Hermine Ricketts recently had a run-in with the law and were threatened with daily fines for their illegal activity. Carroll and Ricketts weren’t robbing banks, or trafficking humans, or running some other criminal enterprise — they were growing their own food.

That’s right. For 17 years, the couple grew their own food in their front yard until one day, the state came knocking. They were threatened with a fine of $50 every single day they let the garden grow in their yard.

Not wanting to be extorted or kidnapped and thrown in a cage, the couple immediately complied and dug up their garden. However, now they are fighting back in the form of a lawsuit. Continue reading »
