There is a war raging against your right to know what you and your children are eating, how it was altered genetically, and how to avoid it.

The federal government is attempting to stop states and localities from regulating these experimental foods, which are released to the public without any long term or independent testing at all. They are tested by the corporations and voluntarily reported to the government under the fraudulent assumption that they are safe, because it’s up to the rest of us to prove their science experiments are unsafe. This Alice in Wonderland system of high risk corporate coddling is protected by the corrupt congress, which has gone out of its way to bring us toward a state of fascism, on this and on other crucial issues (such as the surveillance state).

GMO Labeling Laws Ditched: The Passage of the DARK Act Shows the Arrogance of US Politicians

In particular, the DARK Act – if passed by the Senate and signed into law by Obama – will:

  • Preempt State and local laws regarding the production and sale of GMO crops, not just the labeling of GMO foods;

  • Eliminate “GMO-Free” zones;

  • Unfairly burden traditional farmers and food producers to label their food as “GMO-free,” requiring certification from the pro-GMO USDA;

  • Further muddy the food definition of “Natural,” allowing companies to make “natural” claims on packaging even if the food contains GMOs; and

  • Allow dairy products from animals fed bioengineered foods and foods developed using bioengineered processing aids or enzymes to still be labeled as non-bioengineered.

Buy Organic… while you still can.

Chipotle-soft-opening-picture

I feel better about eating there Saturday. Tasty stuff, not too expensive. This is good news.

NYTimes:

In a first for a major restaurant chain,Chipotle Mexican Grill on Monday will begin serving only food that is free of genetically engineered ingredients.

Right now former Monsanto super lobbyist Michael Taylor has crafted new food safety rules at the FDA that could drive tens of thousands of America’s small, local and organic family farmers out of business.

What the hell are you feeding your family?

In America the citizens are treated a lot like the livestock, kept dumb and fattened up enough so that they won’t revolt, and can be led off to any sorts of metaphorical slaughters the powers that be can concoct.  They are shoveled tainted agriculture, tainted energy supplies, tainted meats and fish as well — let’s not forget all that ocean pollution, including Fukushima’s ongoing radiation leaks.

 

Why 160 Countries Say No to US Meats

“Just a few months ago, Russia had joined the rest of the world in banning the importation of American meat. 159 countries took their stance against the meat products that are said to contain drugs which stimulate growth. This issue is about the health dangers of ractopamine that might be the cause of increasing number of Russians dying from cardiovascular disease every year.”

 

Russia to Ban U.S. Meat Over Ractopamine Residues 

“Russia will ban U.S. pork and beef imports starting this month over concerns about ractopamine, a veterinary drug commonly used in North America to boost growth and leanness that is increasingly controversial overseas, according to Russian media reports.”

 

American Beef: Why is it Banned in Europe?

“More than a decade ago, Roy Hertz, then director of endocrinology at the National Cancer Institute and a leading authority on hormonal cancers, warned of the carcinogenic risks of estrogenic additives which can cause imbalances and increases in natural hormone levels. Hertz warned against the uncontrolled use of these potent carcinogens. No dietary levels of hormones are safe and a dime-sized piece of meat contains-billions of millions of molecules.”

I haven’t even touched on MAD COW DISEASE, which is not tested here by law.  If you read Howard Lyman’s book, you probably won’t eat any meat for a few years, and then maybe organic grass fed only.
