http://www.skeptically.org/finc/id2.html There's nothing they are leaving untouched: the mustard, the okra, the bringe oil, the rice, the cauliflower. Once they have
established the norm: that seed can be owned as their property, royalties can be collected. We will depend on them for every
seed we grow of every crop we grow. If they control seed, they control food, they know it -- it's strategic. It's more powerful
than bombs. It's more powerful than guns. This is the best way to control the populations of the world. The story starts in
the White House, where Monsanto often got its way by exerting disproportionate influence over policymakers via the "revolving
door". One example is Michael Taylor, who worked for Monsanto as an attorney before being appointed as deputy commissioner
of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1991. While at the FDA, the authority that deals with all US food approvals,
Taylor made crucial decisions that led to the approval of GE foods and crops. Then he returned to Monsanto, becoming the company's
vice president for public policy.
to these intimate links between Monsanto and government agencies, the US adopted GE foods and crops without proper testing,
without consumer labeling and in spite of serious questions hanging over their safety. Not coincidentally, Monsanto supplies
90 percent of the GE seeds used by the US market. Monsanto's long arm stretched so far that, in the early nineties, the US
Food and Drugs Agency even ignored warnings of their own scientists, who were cautioning that GE crops could cause negative
health effects. Other tactics the company uses to stifle concerns about their products include misleading advertising, bribery
and concealing scientific evidence.

and your family on the wrong side of a bet?
US government ignored repeated warnings by its own scientists and allowed untested genetically modified (GM) crops into our
environment and food supply, it was a gamble of unprecedented proportions. The health of all living things and all future
generations were put at risk by an infant technology.
two decades, physicians and scientists have uncovered a grave trend. The same serious health problems found in lab animals,
livestock, and pets that have been fed GM foods are now on the rise in the US population. And when people and animals stop
eating genetically modified organisms (GMOs), their health improves.
This seminal documentary provides compelling evidence to help explain the deteriorating health of Americans,
especially among children, and offers a recipe for protecting ourselves and our future.

With a staggering number of Americans suffering from obesity and other food-related
maladies, this film takes a timely and hard-hitting look at how the food we eat is helping or hurting our health, and what
we can do to live (and eat) better. Nutritionists, naturopaths, scientists, doctors, medical journalists and more weigh in
on everything from using food as medicine to the value of organic food and the safety of the food we consume.
Medical and insurance costs continue to skyrocket while our national debt continues to hit the roof.

Chick-fil-A to Stop Using
Chickens Raised on Antibiotics.. in 5 Years
food chain caves under food activist pressure Adan Salazar Infowars.com February 13, 2014 In yet another victory for food rights activists, fast
food chain Chick-fil-A has agreed to stop sourcing chickens fed antibiotics following overwhelming pressure from critics. Although Chick-fil-A is taking a major step, they are still far from being fully organic. / Image: Wikimedia Commons "...we are collaborating with national and regional poultry suppliers to build a supply chain based on chickens raised
with no antibiotics," Chick-fil-A stated in a press release. "We are asking suppliers to work with the USDA to verify
that antibiotics are never administered from the hatchery to the processing plant." The plan, Chick-fil-A says,
is to "serve chicken raised without antibiotics in all Chick-fil-A restaurants, nationwide, within five years." Sourcing chickens fed antibiotics is a revoltingly common practice that helps fatten chickens rapidly for production. Undoubtedly, the prime mover urging Chick-fil-A's decision was Vani Hari, AKA the Food Babe. "For over a year and a
half," Hari says she's been consulting the chain "on the top priorities of consumers and on healthy ingredient changes." Hari says upon receiving news of Chick-fil-A's decision, she literally burst into tears. "...when the news hit, I screamed
so loud that every neighbor within a mile radius must have heard me. And then tears of joy started rolling down my face,"
Hari wrote. This is Hari's second victory over a fast food chain in two weeks. Last week, after repeated attempts, she
was able to force sandwich chain Subway to stop making their bread with an ingredient called azodicarbonamide - a chemical
also used to make yoga mats and shoe rubber. Even though she's been able to get Chick-fil-A to change their purchasing
habits, however, Hari says she still wouldn't eat there. Let me be super clear on this. This announcement or any of the
changes Chick-fil-A has already started making, does not mean this food is now healthy or I will begin to eat there. Next
on my list of demands is the removal of Monosodium Glutamate (and various hidden MSG additives, like autolyzed yeast extract)
from their chicken sandwiches. I think it would be absolutely amazing to be able to eat at a fast food restaurant with a drive
through window again! But you won't catch me at Chick-fil-A until they start providing clean, organic and sustainable food!
Chick-fil-A would be surprised about how many people would choose an organic option if they offered it. Chick-fil-A's
time table is also problematic. "This strategy gives me some heart ache," Hari confesses. "I'd like to see
them move faster than 5 years and hope they will be able to influence their suppliers (think Tyson, Perdue, etc.) to move
faster or at least consider using other suppliers who are not using antibiotics in the meantime." Over the last
year, Hari and her legion of food activists have been able to persuade Chick-fil-A to drop the chemical TBHQ, high fructose
corn syrup, artificial food dyes, and has convinced them to switch to a cleaner bun, one "without yoga mat chemical azodicarbonamide,
mind you." She claims if the chain one day offers an organic option, that she'll "rent a chicken costume and run
up and down the street on live TV." Watch "Food Babe" Vani Hari on the Alex Jones Show following her victory
over Subway, who conceded last week to removing the ingredient azodicarbonamide from their bread production, a chemical used
in the production of yoga mats and shoe rubber.
Vani Hari, better known as "Food Babe," is a
blogger and food activist in Charlotte, North Carolina. Her blog, FoodBabe.com1, and her "leading by example" style
of activism is an inspiration to a growing number of people not just in the US but around the world.
One of her most celebrated achievements is her participation in
the Democratic National Convention, in which she drew massive media attention by standing up with a makeshift "Label
GMOs" sign in the front row, during Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack's speech.
This interview was taped a week after the March Against Monsanto where I participated
in one of the local marches and had a chance to witness first-hand people working in the activist movement. It really helped
me understand that there's a widespread opportunity for virtually anyone to participate, get inspired, and to really make
Vani's personal story
is a perfect example of just how influential a single person can be, not just in educating others, but also in enticing major
food chains to do the right thing and make positive changes.
About the Author Robert Cohen performed research
in the 1970's on the hormonal effects on the brain and behavior. Twenty-five years later, this father of three became concerned
about the most controversial drug approval in FDA history, the genetically engineered hormone that is now in our milk supply.
Along the way, Cohen discovered that milk is implicated in causing breast cancer, osteoporosis, heart disease, and chronic
childhood illnesses. Cohen's skills as a researcher, and his passion for the safety of his family, led to his single-minded
pursuit to expose the truth about milk. Based on his exhaustive and comprehensive research over the past six years, Cohen
predicted the Mad Cow Disease outbreak. His dogged determination has set the American dairy industry on its ear. To insure
that all citizens of the world learn the truth, Cohen founded and is executive director of America's Dairy Education Board,
a group of nationally prominent doctors dedicated to dispelling the myth that milk is nature's perfect food. ===
This is a 1998 Hard Copy Special on MILK. What the government doesn't want you to
know about milk. Don't drink milk, we know it contains fat and cholesterol but did you know it contains the protein CASEIN
(which is basically a glue which leads to a lot of mucous build up and other health problems like asthma and congestion),
milk also contains.. powerful growth hormones, viruses, a host of deadly chemical and biological bacterial agents, bovine
proteins that cause allergies, insecticides, antibiotics, all this can trigger the growth of cancer and contributes to today's
problem of obese children (ever notice why young girls breasts develop faster?). Cow's milk is the number one allergic food
in this country. It has been well documented as a cause in diarrhea, cramps, bloating, gas, gastrointestinal bleeding, iron-deficiency
anemia, skin rashes, atherosclerosis, and acne. It is the primary cause of recurrent ear infections in children. It has also
been linked to insulin dependent diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, infertility, and leukemia. Milk and refined sugar make two
of the largest contributions to food induced ill health in our country.
