FDA allows conventional meat and produce to be blasted with radioactive nuclear waste, treated with virus ‘cocktails’

(NaturalNews) The use of pesticides and the presence of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) are not the only major differentiating factors between conventional food and organic food. According to GreenMedInfo.com, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) allows the conventional food supply to be irradiated with nuclear waste at extremely high levels, and also treated with deadly bacteriophage virus “cocktails” in order to make it “safe” for consumers.

It is a dirty little secret of the factory food industry, and one that has remained largely veiled thanks to a lack of effective regulation concerning proper labeling. But everything from herbs and spices to vegetables and fruit is effectively murdered with Cobalt-60 gamma radiation derived from the waste of nuclear reactors before being sold to customers.

According to data listed on the FDA’s own website, fresh conventional foods are typically blasted with 1 kilogray (kGy) of gamma radiation, which is the equivalent of 16,700,000 chest X-rays, or 333 times the human lethal dose. Fresh poultry and red meat are subjected to 3 kGys and 4.5 kGys, respectively, with frozen red meat subjected to radiation blasts as high as 7 kGys.

FDA and global elites are destroying food supply and farms

By Dr. Laurie Roth

Call it what you will. I call it old fashioned evil and communism. The FDA and other controlling organizations are on a roll to create invented crisis, hiding behind contrived safety issues with our farmers and food supply. The bottom line is most clear. The Marxist-Communists in control, Obama and his handlers want to control what we eat, when we eat, what we grow and how we grow it.

I have covered many times on my national radio show, the Agenda 21 push, and sustainability bull rot they are forcing down our kids throats in school. Increased regulations, taxation and imposed laws have required our competent and well meaning farmers to practically slit their own throats. The FDA has been pulling continued, safety issues out of their ‘Rules for Radicals’ play book and shredding our farms and food supply.

Just a few of the untold cases of frivolous assault and control on our farmers:

A few months ago I was the EMCEE and spoke at a conference, which covered the manipulation, funding and dramatic push forward or Agenda 21 and sustainability. While there I met Anthony and Kelli Estrella who own and run the Estrella Family Creamery. They make cheese and have for many years without such a thing as a health concern or incident. In fact their many varieties of cheese have long been the favorite of countless people. Just one of their many happy clients stated:

“I took Kelli Estrella’s cheeses to my James Beard Dinner in New York and the Big Apple will never be the same. Her cheeses were the talk of the evening. She represents the top level of small artisan producers of Washington State like no other. I’m proud to be a representative of her craft.”

Anti-angeogenisis shrinks tumors by cutting off the blood source to the tumor.  Food is medicine, unfortunately not according to the FDA…claiming that food  cures disease(even if proven by science) is illegal in the USA.  Strawberry is more effective at angeogenisis than nearly any modern pharmaceutical.  Another benefit of eating anti-angeogenic foods is fat loss!  JT

The National Cancer Institute Cancer Program For Prevention and Treatment From 1975 to 2007 – A Dismal Failure

I have assessed the U.S. Natioal Cancer Program for prevention and treatment of various cancers using surgery, radiation and chemotherapy by analyzing the overall incidence and mortality rates of all cancers combined. The statistics used for the analysis are from the period 1975 to 2007 which include 1) the incidence rates of males and females, 2) the number of Americans afficted with a cancer, 3) the mortality rates of males and females and 4) the number of Americans who died from a cancer.

Two criteria were used to assess the progam of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in preventing cancer: thie incidence rate and the number of Americans afflicted by a cancer. A constant or increasing incidence rate over time, along with increasednumbers of those afflited indicates a dismal failure of the NCI program in the prevention of cancer. Also, if the incidence rate declines but the number of people afflicted increases, the NCI prevention program is deemed a dismal failure. A declining incidence rate, along with a declining number of those diagnosed with any specific cancer, however, indicates succes in the prevention of cancer.

The criteria used to assess the treatment side of the NCI program were the mortality rate and the numbers of Americans died from a specific cancer. A constant or increasing mortality rate of a cancer over time, along with increased numbers of deaths, indicates a failure of the NCI program in the treatment of cancer.

New Government Regulations Signify Crackdown on Natural Health

Anthony Gucciardi

Activist Post

After much deliberation, new European Union regulations have come into place banning hundreds of traditional herbal remedies. Under the guise of “protecting” consumers from these “dangerous” supplements, the European Union has opened the flood gates to an onslaught of new legislation designed to cut off access to alternative health supplements worldwide, setting the precedent for the government to tell us what we can and cannot put in our own bodies.

The rules allow for only “long-established and quality-controlled medicines” to be sold to consumers, limiting the advancement of any new companies or establishments that the government does not deem to be “quality” by their own terms. This type of governmental regulation of nutritional supplements may soon spill over to the food industry, where government involvement may be even more cause for concern.

Artificial Sweeteners: FDA Approved Poisons

Artificial sweeteners seem like attractive alternatives to sugar since they add virtually no calories to your diet. Adding to the allure, you only need to use a fraction compared to the amount of regular sugar you’d normally use for adding sweetness. But there’s a seriously big catch — they’re dangerous and they’re showing up everywhere these days.

Artificial sweeteners are widely used in processed products, including tabletop sweeteners, baked goods, soft drinks, powdered drink mixes, candy, puddings, canned foods, jams and jellies, dairy products, and scores of other foods and beverages.

What’s really scary is that artificial sweeteners have also become popular at home. More and more home cooks are enthusiastically using artificial sweeteners, thinking that they’re healthy alternatives to regular table sugar. And let’s be honest, the information going around has been really confusing. In the 1970s and ‘80s, the US government warned us about the health dangers of artificial sweeteners. They even labeled the “pink” packets as a potential carcinogen back in the day.

But that’s all changed now. Despite mounting clinical and laboratory evidence pointing to dangerous health consequences attributed to artificial sweeteners, the government has now decided that they’re safe. The official position of the FDA and the National Cancer Institute is that there’s no clear cut evidence of disease-causing effects from the use of artificial sweeteners. Unbelievable.

And don’t think for a second that corn syrups are healthy either, despite the intense marketing efforts of the National Corn Growers Association. These sweeteners are popular because they’re cheap and readily available, period. No real chef in their right mind would ever use them otherwise. Sure, the mass produced pre-packaged food industry relies on high fructose corn syrup, but only because it’s a direct path to profits.

Taking Down Monsanto: The California Ballot Initiative

By: Ronnie Cummins

Organic Consumers Association

“If you put a label on genetically engineered food you might as well put a skull and crossbones on it.” – Norman Braksick, president of Asgrow Seed Co., a subsidiary of Monsanto, quoted in the Kansas City Star, March 7, 1994

Monsanto and Food Inc.’s stranglehold over the nation’s food and farming system is about to be challenged in a food fight that will largely determine the future of American agriculture.

A growing corps of organic food and health activists in California—supported by consumers and farmers across the nation—are boldly standing up to Monsanto and its minions, taking the first steps to expose the widespread contamination of non-organic grocery store foods with Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), and moving to implement mandatory GMO labeling through a grassroots-powered Citizens Ballot Initiative process.

Dr. Mercola Recommends…

Every “Like” Helps Support This Cause

This week, lawyers representing a broad and unprecedented health, environmental, and consumer coalition, including the Organic Consumers Association, Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap, Center for Food Safety, Mercola.com, Nature’s Path, Natural News.com, LabelGMOs.org, Food Democracy Now, and the Institute for Responsible Technology, filed papers with the California Attorney General’s office to place a Citizens Initiative on the Ballot in November, 2012 that would require mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods and food ingredients.

If California voters pass this ballot initiative in 2012, it will likely be the beginning of the end for Monsanto and genetically engineered food in the U.S. According to Zuri Starr, a Southern California field organizer for the Organic Consumers Association:

“The California Ballot Initiative is perhaps our last chance to stop the Biotech Express, to overthrow Biotechnology’s dictatorial regime and build a safe and sustainable food and farming system based upon the ethical principles of consumer choice and BioDemocracy.”
