Let’s see, rats and mice get cancer, diabetes, heart disease, have premature births and become infertile when fed genetically modified food but that doesn’t prove anything? I guess we need human experiments - oh, but we have been doing that for 20 years and we have the most expensive health care in the world and some of the worst health statistics including a premature birth rate that matches African countries. Do you think there might be a connection?????
If you are interested in your health, the health of those you love and the health of the Planet, join me here. Our health is affected by our environment, our political and economic systems and our relationship to everything around us. We are interconnected with everyone on the planet. If we purchase items that cause harm to others across the world, our health is impacted. If we hold on to anger at others, if we keep dangerous secrets inside us and withhold love, we damage our health. This blog will deal with our food supply, our health care system, our environment as well as the economic and political factors that are affecting our well being. I will blog about books, including the ones I am writing, movies, articles and links to sites that can help us all stay healthy in mind, body and spirit.

Monsanto recently contributed $4.2 million to defeat California’s
Proposition 37 – a bill that would require labeling of genetically
Many other companies, including Dupont, Dow Agro, PepsiCo, and even some of
the largest member-donors to the Organic Trade Association, have also
contributed millions to the effort to defeat labeling. Currently, $25
million has been raised in opposition, compared to $3 million in support of
Understanding how Monsanto manipulates the system is crucial to
understanding why Americans are not allowed to know if their food has been
genetically engineered by simple labeling, as around 50 countries around
the world already do, including Russia, China and the entire EU
The California ballot initiative is an end run around Monsanto’s government
controls via the FDA and USDA. For the first time in the US, the decision
to label genetically engineered foods will be put into the hands of voters.
Your support is urgently needed.

The premature birth rate in the US runs from 10% for some groups to over 17% in others. In comparison the UK rate is 7.8% and that is significantly higher than Sweden, Norway and Ireland. Could it be related to the consumption of genetically modified corn and soy with Bt Toxins in the US, brought to you by Monsanto? Cattle are aborting at 45% on their GMO feed. More than half the babies of mother rats fed GM soy died within three weeks. Well, do you think we have a right to ask the question?????
Join me in occupying Monsanto on the Internet by passing on my posts! Monsanto has raised millions of dollars to oppose Prop 37 in California which would require labeling of some genetically modified foods. They are being supported by major companies in the US who don’t want you to know how many genetically modified items are in your diet. From baby formula to cereal bars and your favorite muffin mix, you are consuming food with multiple genetically modified ingredients in every meal. Learn why this is dangerous to your health. Watch this space!
Connecticut had the potential to become the first US state to require the labeling of genetically modified (GMO) foods. But two days ago, the Governor stripped GMO labeling from a new bill that was supported by 90% of the residents of the state and a majority of the legislature on both sides of the aisle.
Representative Richard Roy, one of the bill’s original sponsors, says:
“The labeling provision was eliminated from the bill due to fears that it opened the state up to a lawsuit. The attorneys for the leadership and Governor’s office felt the Constitutional rights of Monsanto gave them the power to successfully sue the state. Their main duty was to protect the welfare of the state.”
We’re not talking about banning GMO’s here. We’re talking about labeling them. Something that’s already been mandated in all 27 European Union nations, as well as Japan, Australia, Brazil, Russia and China.
As Summit speaker Jeffrey Smith’s Institute for Responsible Technology said in an action alert: “Governor Malloy chose to put the interests of the monstrous biotech industry in front of the rights of the people of Connecticut.”
A Food Revolution is No Small Endeavor
We’re all swimming upstream much of the time.
Most of us live in an environment where eating junk food is considered normal, and eating healthy food is considered weird. Where you can buy a candy bar at almost any store, but you sometimes have to travel for miles to get a fresh piece of spinach.
It’s not easy to be a food revolutionary. But it has never been more important.
How Goldman gambled on starvation
July 2, 2010, The Independent (One of the UK’s leading newspapers)
This is the story of how some of the richest people in the world – Goldman, Deutsche Bank, the traders at Merrill Lynch, and more – have caused the starvation of some of the poorest people in the world. At the end of 2006, food prices across the world started to rise, suddenly and stratospherically. Within a year, the price of wheat had shot up by 80 per cent, maize by 90 per cent, rice by 320 per cent. In a global jolt of hunger, 200 million people – mostly children – couldn’t afford to get food any more, and sank into malnutrition or starvation. There were riots in more than 30 countries, and at least one government was violently overthrown. Then, in spring 2008, prices just as mysteriously fell back to their previous level. Jean Ziegler, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, calls it “a silent mass murder”, entirely due to “man-made actions.” Through the 1990s, Goldman Sachs and others lobbied hard and the regulations [controlling agricultural futures contracts] were abolished. Suddenly, these contracts were turned into “derivatives” that could be bought and sold among traders who had nothing to do with agriculture. A market in “food speculation” was born. The speculators drove the price through the roof.
Note: For a very powerful New York Times article by a top Goldman Sachs executive who recently quit for reasons of conscience, click here. Some researchers speculate that the global elite are aware that alternative energies will eventually replace oil, which has been a prime means of control and underlying cause of many recent wars. As a replacement for oil, the elite and their secret societies are increasingly targeting control of the world’s food supply through terminator crops which produce no seed, and through the patenting of seeds.
