- The Price Of Ground Beef Has DOUBLED Since The Last Financial Crisis (Economic Collapse, March 25, 2015):

Since the depths of the last recession, the price of ground beef in the United States has doubled.  Has your paycheck doubled since then?  Even though the Federal Reserve insists that we are in a “low inflation” environment, the government’s own numbers show that the price of ground beef has been on an unprecedented run over the past six years.  In early 2009, the average price of a pound of ground beef was hovering near 2 dollars.  In February, it hit a brand new all-time record high of $4.238 per pound.  Even just 12 months ago, the price of ground beef was sitting at $3.555 per pound.  So we are talking about a huge increase.  And this hits American families where they really live.  Each year, the average American consumes approximately 270 pounds of meat.  The only nation in the world that eats more meat than we do is Luxembourg.  If the paychecks of American workers were going up fast enough to deal with this increase, it wouldn’t be that big of a deal.  But of course that is not happening.  In an article just last week, I showed that real median household income is a couple thousand dollars lower now than it was during the depths of the last recession.  The middle class is being squeezed, and we are rapidly getting to the point where burgers are going to be considered a “luxury” item.

- Thousands Of Layoffs Coming After Buffett Merges Heinz With Kraft, Creating 5th Largest Food Company In The World (ZeroHedge, March 25, 2015):

Another day, another mega-M&A deal taking advantage of abnormally low bond rates, this time however not involving biotechs or a specialty pharma seeking to purchase a debt-free balance sheet, but one involving the Oracle of Omaha himself, and his Heinz investment, which will merge with Kraft Foods whose market cap was over $40 billion this morning on the news of the merger, and create the third largest food and beverage company in the US, and 5th largest in  the world.

And while the resulting company will certainly be an unprecedented food giant, one which leaves the US food industry even more concentrated, here is the rationale behind the deal and the punchline for American workers: “significant synergy opportunities.” Translation: thousands of layoffs imminent.

FULL ARTICLE UP at Nutritional Anarchy: http://www.nutritionalanarchy.com/?p=…

This is the state of modern food in a country where 96–98 percent of the people rely on the other 2–4 percent for food production and giant megacorporations make everything the majority of the nation’s people eat in giant industrial factories.

Kraft, the company we called in 2013 to ask if their Macaroni and Cheese contained genetically modified wheat and the customer service person couldn’t tell us, is currently recalling a whopping 242,000 cases of their flagship Macaroni & Cheese Dinner product in the classic blue boxes — I recorded that video in the middle of the night last night before I even realized that is equal to 6.5 MILLION BOXES.

Drought-Public-Domain

- California Is Turning Back Into A Desert And There Are No Contingency Plans (Economic Collapse, March 15, 2015):

Once upon a time, much of the state of California was a barren desert.  And now, thanks to the worst drought in modern American history, much of the state is turning back into one.  Scientists tell us that the 20th century was the wettest century that the state of California had seen in 1000 years.  But now weather patterns are reverting back to historical norms, and California is rapidly running out of water.  It is being reported that the state only has approximately a one year supply of water left in the reservoirs, and when the water is all gone there are no contingency plans.  Back in early 2014, California Governor Jerry Brown declared a drought emergency for the entire state, but since that time water usage has only dropped by 9 percent.  That is not nearly enough.  The state of California has been losing more than 12 million acre-feet of total water a year since 2011, and we are quickly heading toward an extremely painful water crisis unlike anything that any of us have ever seen before.

- America to lose one-third of its fresh produce when California runs out of water (Natural News, March 16, 2015):

As Michael Snyder points out in a timely article at The Economic Collapse Blog, California is rapidly reverting back to the desert it was once.

Awareness of this is only now beginning to spread, but almost no one truly grasps the implications of what losing California’s Central Valley agricultural output means to grocery shoppers.

Almost no one realizes, for example, that one-third of all the produce grown in the United States comes out of California’s Central Valley. As the NYT explains: Continue reading »

McDonals-Arches-Crumble

- McDonald’s in global profit free fall as people everywhere increasingly reject chemically-altered toxic fast food (Natural News, March 12, 2015):

For decades, McDonald’s has been the poster child of chemically-altered factory-made fast food. While preying on the emotional imprinting of children with on-site playgrounds and social engineering marketing tactics, the restaurant’s true fundamental ethics are reflected in the horrors of the factory food industry: imprisoned chickens in tiny cages, genetically modified soy as meat fillers, chemically-altered menu ingredients and a geopolitical form of processed food imperialism that has resulted in McDonald’s restaurants “occupying” hundreds of nations around the world while exporting obesity, diabetes and heart disease globally.

Slowly but surely, the public has increasingly caught on to the McDonald’s sleight-of-food stage magic. Feel-good advertising can’t cover up the truth about its inhumane treatment of animals, genetically modified food ingredients and insidious social programming that tries to equate the restaurant with an emotional state of bliss. “Happy Meal…” seriously? I doubt the chickens who were slaughtered for that meal were very happy… Continue reading »

Running Raw Around Australia

- Running Raw Around Australia (Raw Vegan Path):

To inspire and motivate conscious lifestyle choices, to promote kindness and compassion for all living beings and to raise environmental awareness for a sustainable future, veteran raw vegan runners Janette Murray-Wakelin and Alan Murray ran together around Australia, 15,782 km, 366 marathons each in 366 consecutive days throughout the year 2013.  Janette and Alan finished running 365 marathons in 365 days in Melbourne December 31, 2013.

On January 1, 2014 they ran one more marathon #366 to set a new World Record for the most consecutive marathons, the only couple to Run Around Australia, both 60+ years young, fueled entirely on a raw vegan plant-based diet and wearing barefoot shoes! Together they have proven beyond any doubt, that by living a conscious lifestyle, you are never too old (and never too young) to achieve optimum health and physical fitness.

“Astonishingly, the entire tribe consisting of men, women, old and young, every one of them is capable of running at least 250+ miles in a single run, without shoes. Such extreme feat of endurance has never been seen among humans anywhere else in the world.”




Description:

Nestled in northern Mexico and the canyons of the Sierra Madre Occidental is a small tribe of indigenous people known as the Tarahumara. They call themselves Rarámuri, loosely translated as “running people,” “foot-runner,” “swift of foot,” or “he who walks well.” They are known for evading the Spanish conquerors in the sixteenth century and keeping their cave-dwelling culture alive and secluded. They are also known for their long distance running and their superior health, not displaying the common health issues of “modern” societies.

A recent National Geographic study (Nov. 2008) states: “When it comes to the top 10 health risks facing American men, the Tarahumara are practically immortal: Their incidence rate is at or near zero in just about every category, including diabetes, vascular disease, and colorectal cancer…Plus, their supernatural invulnerability isn’t just limited to their bodies; the Tarahumara have mastered the secret of happiness as well, living as benignly as bodhisattvas in a world free of theft, murder, suicide, and cruelty.” Continue reading »

grocery vs restauant

- History Made: For The First Time Ever, US Consumers Spent More On Food In Restaurants Than In Grocery Stores (ZeroHedge, March 4, 2015):

Over the weekend, we mocked the WSJ for glorifying the US “wage recovery” by focusing on the “scarcity” of waiter and bartender jobs (“there is fierce competition” for restaurant workers the WSJ said), a concept well-explored on these pages: we have shown repeatedly that soaring number of waiters and bartenders have been the “backbone”, so to say, of the US job recovery in recent years (alongside energy workers but that ship has now sailed). As it turns out the joke’s on us.

As Mark Perry of the AEI shows, for the first time ever, the spending patterns of US consumers are so skewed, that Americans, or at least a small fraction of them, spent more on restaurants and bars, than what Americans, the much larger fraction, spent on grocery stores to prepare food for themselves.

- Meta-Study On Genetically Modified Food: Virtually All Independent Scientists Are Concerned (Washington’s Blog, March 1, 2015):

Half of the Studies Find Cause For Concern … The Other Half Are Studies By the GMO Food Industry Itself

Tufts University’s Director of the Research and Policy Program at the Global Development and Environment Institute (Timothy Wise) points out:

There is no … consensus on the safety of GM food. A peer-reviewed study of the research, from peer-reviewed journals, found that about half of the animal-feeding studies conducted in recent years found cause for concern. The other half didn’t, and as the researchers noted, “most of these studies have been conducted by biotechnology companies responsible of commercializing these GM plants.”

***

The only consensus that GM food is safe is among industry-funded researchers.

By way of background, genetically engineered foods have been linked to obesity, cancer, liver failure, infertility and all sorts of other diseases (brief, must-watch videos here and here).

And genetically-engineered meat isn’t even tested for human safety. Continue reading »

- Kellogg’s Froot Loops contains GMOs and glyphosate herbicide, lab tests verify (Natural News, March 2, 2015):

With the food industry doing everything in its power to avoid having to tell the public that its products are laced with genetically modified (GM) additives, pesticides and other poisons, grassroots efforts to raise awareness about GMOs are flourishing. Recent laboratory tests conducted by GMO Free USA, which revealed the presence of both high levels of GMOs and glyphosate herbicide in Kellogg’s Froot Loops breakfast cereal, are just the start of a much larger campaign to rid the American food supply of all these hidden toxins and restore health to the general public.

- Iceland Did Something Epically Clever With The Last McDonald’s Meal They Ever Sold (Collective-Evolution, Feb 22, 2015):

Up there in the ranks of dinosaur bones and Renaissance art comes the star of our daily cabinet of curiosities (#AMH). And no, it’s not a petrified mummy or a two-headed anomaly, but rather, something more relevant and clever.

In a move that will likely one day see future generations looking back and gasping in horror, Iceland has taken its last McDonald’s meal ever sold and placed it on display at a bus hostel in Reykjavik.

Iceland joined the movement of countries saying ‘farewell‘ to the multi-national fast-food chain back in 2009, after low sales and expensive importing fees caused McD’s to pull out of business for good.

The final day that McDonald’s was open in Iceland was October 31, 2009, and on that day a man named Hjortur Smarason purchased a meal as a souvenir. Smarason had no intention of actually eating it, but wanted to hang onto it out of curiosity and because he saw it as a “piece of history.”

At its new home at the Bus Hostel in Reykjavik, the burger and fries sit on display in front of a webcam, where people all over the world can watch in morbid curiosity.

So far, the meal on display has lived up to its “franken-food” reputation, showing not the slightest sign of decomposition and indubitably further sealing the deal on Iceland`s departure from the mega-chain. Continue reading »

- It’s Official, McDonald’s and Monsanto Are Both ‘Losing Money Fast’ (Natural Society, Feb 22, 2015):

Public awakens to what’s really in their food

In a series of headlines that would pass as virtually unbelievable several years ago, mainstream economists are sounding the alarm over the financial decline of both fast food giant McDonald’s and biotech juggernaut Monsanto.

CNN asks, ‘Is McDonald’s doomed?’ Business Insider declares that ‘McDonald’s Is Losing America’ as the company fires its own CEO. What’s happening? As it turns out, the world is starting to ask what they’re truly eating in their food — and the new conglomerate of natural grocers and restaurants are trailblazing the way into an entirely new economic environment. In other words: people are simply tired of shoveling garbage into their bodies, and they’re not going to put up with it anymore.

Here’s just a few of the ingredients you can find in many fast food meals: Continue reading »

  • *GOV’T PANEL PROPOSES SUGARY-FOOD TAX TO FUND NUTRITION PROGRAMS, CURB OBESITY

On the bright side, the government approves of “lean meat” as compatible with healthy eating. The bill, introduced by Rep. Juan Candelaria, D-New Haven, would impose a tax of 1 cent per ounce on soft drinks – including sweetened teas, energy drinks and soda – and candies that are high in sugar and calories.
