Consumed The Movie: A Thriller About ‘Unlabeled’ GMO Foods

 

When Sophie’s son, Garrett, develops a mysterious illness, she embarks on a search for answers. This leads her into the controversial world of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) where a sociopolitical battle rages between organic farmers and big biotech corporations. As her desperation grows, so too does her quest for knowledge. And the deeper she goes, a more heightened sense of danger develops that preys on her state of mind, as she attempts to discover the root cause of her son’s illness.

Are You Eating Genetically Modified Apples And Potatoes?

 

If you eat apples and potatoes, you may be eating the GMO ‘botox’ apples and potatoes. You have not been given a choice because genetically modified foods are not identified on ingredient labels.

So, unless you are eating a completely ‘organic’ food diet, you are a guinea pig, without your consent, in the GMO experiment.

Old Macdonald Had A Farm: Out With The Old – In With The New

Old MacDonald had a farm, ei ei oh! And on that farm he had some cows, ei ei oh! With a hormone here, and a hormone there, here a moan, there a moan, everywhere a hormone…

Old MacDonald had a farm, ei ei oh!

And on that farm he sprayed some crops, ei ei oh. With some GMOs here and a pesticide there, here a spray, there a spray, everywhere a spray, spray…

a small cage here and a tight cage there...

here a moan, there a moan… everywhere a spray, spray

Old MacDonald had a farm, ei ei oh!

 

 

New MacDonald had a farm. ei , ei, oh! And on that farm the animals roamed. ei , ei, oh! With a pasture here and some open space there. Here they roam, there they roam and never any hormones.

New MacDonald had a farm. ei , ei, oh!

And that farm was chemical-free with no GMOs …with dark soil here and  organic crops there. Toxic pesticides can say goodbye. No more toxins in our lives.

New MacDonald had a farm. ei , ei, oh!

 

 

What Does The Term ‘Natural’ Mean On Food Labels?

“From a food science perspective, it is difficult to define a food product that is ‘natural’ because the food has probably been processed and is no longer the product of the earth. That said, FDA has not developed a definition for use of the term natural or its derivatives. However, the agency has not objected to the use of the term if the food does not contain added color, artificial flavors, or synthetic substances.”    (Source)

” If they have to put the word ‘natural’ on a box to convince you, it probably isn’t.  -Eric Schlosser

Food labels that claim a food is “natural” may not guarantee that food is good for you or from nature. In fact, many so-called “natural” foods contain the toxic chemical pesticides, antibiotics, hormones and genetically engineered ingredients that are harming people and the planet. Only the organic seal guarantees that food is being made in ways that Mother Nature intended.

Breakfast Is Not A Science Experiment: Original Ceerios Are Now GMO Free

Via: NaturalNews

by Mike Adams

(NaturalNews) General Mills has now publicly announced that original Cheerios cereal is non-GMO. This announcement, in which General Mills also falsely claims that genetically modified ingredients are “safe” — as if this had been proven or something — is available here.

But Cheerios cereal is made from oats, and there’s no such thing as commercially-produced genetically modified oats. So proclaiming that original Cheerios is non-GMO is not especially meaningful. It’s like an aloe vera juice company claiming its aloe vera juice is non-GMO. To their credit, General Mills explains they did change their sources for a very tiny ingredient in the cereal: corn starch.

“…we were able to change how we source and handle ingredients to ensure that the corn starch for original Cheerios comes only from non-GMO corn,” explains General Mills.

“The Individual Is The Enemy Of Socialism”: Whistleblower Dr. Russell Blaylock Explains The Elite ‘Playbook’

Via: Wikipedia

Russell L. Blaylock is an American retired neurosurgeon and author. Working with Jeff Elkind, Blaylock introduced a new treatment for a subset of brain tumors, as well as improving certain operations treating water on the brain.

Blaylock was a clinical assistant professor of neurosurgery at the University of Mississippi Medical Center and is currently a visiting professor in the biology department at Belhaven College.[1] He is the author of a number of books and papers, including Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills (1994), Health and Nutrition Secrets That Can Save Your Life (2002), and Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients (2003), and writes a monthly newsletter, the Blaylock Wellness Report.

Blaylock has endorsed views inconsistent with the scientific consensus, including that food additives such as aspartame and monosodium glutamate (MSG) are excitotoxic in normal doses and that the H1N1 influenza (swine flu) vaccine carries more risk than swine flu itself.

Allegations of health dangers

Blaylock opposes the use of vaccines. He has urged avoidance of the swine flu (H1N1) vaccination, which he claims is more dangerous than the infection itself. He has also given advice on what he feels an individual should do if faced with mandatory vaccination, although current research indicates that an effective vaccine is a vital tool in protecting the public and that the H1N1 vaccine is both safe and effective.  Blaylock suggests that Vitamin D, fish oil and antioxidants are effective against catching the flu. According to McGill University’s Joe Schwarcz, there is no evidence for these claims.

Blaylock also claims the supposed toxicity of numerous substances that according to scientific studies are safe at customary exposure levels. He has been quoted several times in media outlets regarding his position that MSG is toxic to the brain. He also states that the widely used artificial sweetener aspartame is toxic and may be the cause of multiple sclerosis. He has additionally cautioned against heavy use of the artificial sweetener Splenda (sucralose). These positions are not supported by scientific consensus or regulatory bodies, as extensive studies support the safety of aspartame, sucralose, and MSG.  Advertisements selling the ‘Blaylock Wellness Report’ at newsmax.com contain claims of additional health dangers, including fluoridated drinking water, fluoridated toothpaste, vaccinesdental amalgamcholesterol drugs, pesticides, and aluminum cookware.

GMO Foods: Seeds Of Death Are Not Listed In The Ingredients On U.S. Food Labels

I say, label all ingredients on food packages.

I will not eat ‘MYSTERY FOODS’. 

I do not consent to take part in the GMO food experiment. 

I object to being treated like a guinea pig who is fed food that is  not labeled as potentially dangerous. 

I will not eat GMO foods.  

That leaves me with the produce section of  the grocery store. I don’t bother with the packaged foods in the aisles. If it comes in a can, it is a ‘mystery food’. I am done eating ‘mystery food’.

I now avoid meat, because everything farm animals are fed is GMO. I avoid ‘fast food’ because it is always a mystery what I am eating there.

I AM RESOLVED TO THE CRIMINAL, CORRUPT STATE OF AFFAIRS REGARDING OUR FOOD.

However, I get mad when I see young children and my parents eating toxic food.

Food used to be easier to identify as whole, safe and healthy.

I say NO to GMO! I will not buy CORPORATE TOXIC FOOD!

NO MYSTERY FOOD!  LABEL THE INGREDIENTS!

This little piggy was fed GMOs

Trans-Pacific Partnership Breaks Down Sovereignty and GMO Protections

Via: Activist Post

Multilateral trade agreement crafted by megacorporations would undermine jobs, expand GMOs and Big Pharma, restrict Internet freedom and strengthen global government.

by Aaron Dykes

Japan is joining negotiations with 11 other countries in an ongoing effort to create a Trans-Pacific Partnership that participants hope to finalize by the end of the year. Led by the U.S., partner nations already on board include Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Chile, Mexico, Brunei, Malaysia, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam.

Many voices in the public, however, oppose the deal on the grounds that its formation favors the business interests of megacorporations who would profit off of global trade at the expense of internet freedom, national sovereignty, food independence and jobs. Moreover, the deal has been worked out largely in secret and without consulting Congress.

U.S. trade representative Michael Froman visited Japan ahead of the TPP negotiation to iron out agreements and rally against protective interests in Japan who see the agreement, and particularly its loosening of tariffs as a threat. According to the WSJ, concerns persist over the ‘rice, beef, pork, dairy, wheat and sugar’ markets and other industries:

Japan’s Central Union of Agricultural Cooperatives adopted a declaration on Aug. 8. saying it has “grave problems” with the TPP, as it could jeopardize food safety and universal healthcare services, and undermine the nation’s sovereignty. “It’s extremely regrettable that the government has entered the negotiations without clarifying such concerns,” the statement said.

Mr. Froman said “Barriers to access to Japan’s automotive and insurance markets, and non-tariff measures and other sectoral and cross-cutting areas hold back growth and innovation, undermine competitiveness, and hurt workers, businesses and consumers in both our countries.” [emphasis added]

Michael Froman’s previously worked with Citigroup and was a senior fellow at the Council of Foreign Relations, putting him in square alliance with unlimited globalization. The CFR recently interviewed Mireya Solís, Senior Fellow at the Brookings Center for Northeast Asian Policy Studies, who described the gravity of trade represented under the TPP.

Japan’s participation in the latest round could “triple the economic gains that the United States can expect from the TPP,” Solís says, and “with Japan on board, the Asian identity of the TPP is more than solidified.” The TPP currently comprises Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, Japan, the United States, and Vietnam, which together make up roughly 40 percent of global gross domestic product and about a third of world trade.

[…] To be frank, we are talking about a level of liberalization when it comes to Japan that is unprecedented.

Globalization agreements, including the likes of GATT, WTO, NAFTA, CAFTA and other multilateral treaties, establish more than just trade between nations. Their deconstruction of trade barriers and tariffs are touted for creating cheaper goods, but often criticized for hurting farmerssmall businesseshome-based industriesenvironmental factors and workers.

GMO / Agribusiness Dominance

One of the major concerns that has been raised about the scope of the Trans-Pacific Partnership is its impact on genetically modified foods, which observers say will favor big players in the biotech industry and undermine labeling laws and bans on growing GMO crops and/or imports.

While the North American Union nations – U.S., Canada and Mexico – have no labeling laws for GM foods, Australia, New Zealand and Japan do. Further, Peru recently declared a 10-year moratoriumon genetically modified crops, but the TPP deal could change that.
