Finally, it seems like we have the attention of some of the members of Congress. As the result of an enormous outcry, the Senate voted down the rider that was recently approved by the House of Representatives. The rider would have continued Big Biotech’s immunity against prosecution resulting from their toxic farming practices and questionable crops.

As of September 30th, the so-called Monsanto Protection Act will be dead. This is a major victory for anti-GMO activists as it is the first time that Congress has decided in favor of the constituents as opposed to companies like Monsanto, Sygenta, Bayer, and Dow.

Hayden’s Note:

I somehow don’t think that this was defeated because the Senate is a group of good guys watching out for all of us. Instead, I have a feeling there was something else in the overall vote that was not to be passed. Expect the Monsanto Protection Act rider to be rewritten or worked into a different bill for future vote once the dust settles and the alt media has quieted down.

Monsanto Sponsors Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®: Partners in Bio-Tech Terrorism

Posted on Jun 15, 2013 in Featured Articles, Health, Food News, & Big Pharma

On a beautiful morning in St. Louis, MO, thousands of race participants gathered at the starting line of the Susan G. Koman Foundation’s Race for the Cure® 5k Run.

Buried among the many tents and booths offering health literature and pink merchandise, we found an interesting sponsor: Monsanto Company Inc. Yes, the world’s biggest bio-tech terrorist and their “Fun Squad” is a sponsor of the breast cancer fundraising run.

For 30 years now, the Susan G. Komen Foundation has held a prestigious place in the forefront of the “cancer research community”, as well as essentially owning the pink ribbon concept. Their stated mission is a world without breast cancer, and in particular, the “Susan G. Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure® raises funds for the local fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivorship, and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease.”

On a national level, the Susan G. Komen Foundation raked in $342,373,526 in fiscal year 2012, and according to Charity Navigator.com, paid the current CEO, Nancy Brinker, a whopping $684,717 in salary – which doesn’t even count her bonuses....

Dairy farmer Vernon Hershberger was acquitted on three of four criminal charges early Saturday morning in a trial that drew national attention from supporters of the raw, unpasteurized milk movement.

Hayden’s Note:

See this 2010 article for background information: http://www.truthistreason.net/state-agencies-crack-down-on-raw-milk-sales

Many will consider this is a small victory for raw milk and jury nullification efforts.

Jurors in Sauk County Circuit Court deliberated about four hours, until nearly 1 a.m. Saturday, before returning a verdict of guilty on one charge of violating a holding order placed on products on the Hershberger farm following a raid there in the summer of 2010.

The 41-year-old farmer faces up to a year in jail and $10,000 in fines on that conviction. A sentencing date will be announced later, Judge Guy Reynolds said.

Hershberger was found innocent of three charges that included operating an unlicensed retail store that sold raw milk and other products; and operating a dairy farm and dairy processing facility without licenses.

Hershberger’s supporters have said he was targeted for prosecution because he sold raw milk directly to consumers through a private buying club with several hundred members....

BPA & Canned Food: Uncontaminated Brands to Include in Your Preps

In July, 2012, the Food and Drug Administration finally decided to ban Bisphenol A (BPA) from bottles and sippy cups. They did that to simply boost consumer confidence, and that was about it.

BPA: Regulation at the Speed of Profit Decrease

People who track the progress of BPA regulation are the same people who like glacier racing as a spectator sport. In July, as you should know, the FDA finally banned BPA from baby drinking containers because the American Chemistry Council (the lobbyists who’ve kept BPA in our bodies all these years) decided they would voluntarily do the ban and so it would make a good show if it became an official rule. I’m not being cynical (this time), even the New York Times says that’s how it is. Hey, now that’s progress – it only took the FDA two years from the 2010 reversal of their previous “BPA is safe” mantra to get it out of sippy cups. Consumer safety at the speed of light, friends.

Hayden’s Note:

I talk about food, Big Pharma, FDA, and toxins such as BPA quite regularly here on Truth, so I wanted to post an article written by a great new website called SchemaByte.com.

‘Preservative-free’ Vaccines and Flu Shots Still Contain Deadly Toxins Thumbnail

‘Preservative-free’ Vaccines and Flu Shots Still Contain Deadly Toxins

Posted on Dec 25, 2012 in Health, Food News, & Big Pharma

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Source: Natural News (one of my favorite websites)

The preservative-free lie is being perpetuated for concerned parents and health enthusiasts, so you will still go to the school, clinic, pharmacy, grocery store, or whatever other “jab shop” that administers flu shots, and get injected with toxins, even though they may have “left out” one or two of the toxins you heard or read bad things about. Maybe preservative-free means you still get the toxic preservatives, but its only trace amounts that are being injecting into your blood. (http://vaxtruth.org/2011/08/vaccine-ingredients/)

People who are allergic to peanuts, soy, fish, and other common foods can have a deathly allergic reaction to even the smallest amounts of these ingredients, and that’s just when it touches their skin or they eat a “trace” amount, so then we delve into injecting toxins in trace amounts. People who are allergic to penicillin cannot have even a trace amount of it, or they could die. So where’s the logic? There is none. It’s just bad business as usual for Big Pharma.

Injecting “trace amounts” of toxins

How different is it if you eat a lot of mercury, or you inject just a little?...

FDA Quietly Increases Allowed Radiation Doses of Meats for Human Consumption

Posted on Dec 12, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Health, Food News, & Big Pharma

Rather than actually take the time to address the root causes of meat and poultry contamination, which more often than not are a direct result of outrageously unsanitary factory farming practices, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has instead decided to simply up the doses of radiation that industrial food producers are allowed to blast on their filthy, contaminated meat products.

In the first new rule recently published in the Federal Register, the FDA specifies that “unrefrigerated uncooked meat” can now be irradiated right alongside refrigerated, frozen and cooked meat. And in the second new rule, the FDA increases the amount of ionizing radiation that can be applied to poultry products such as chicken by 50 percent, bumping the dosage up to 4.5 kilograys (kGy) of radiation from the previous 3.0 kGy.

You can view the two published rules here:
http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2012-11-30/pdf/2012-28967.pdf

These two rules, which were enacted quietly and without any media fanfare (big surprise), come more than a decade after the U.S. Department of Agriculture‘s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) first petitioned the FDA for their passage back in 1999....

BPA’s Real Threat May Be After It Has Metabolized

Posted on Oct 04, 2012 in Health, Food News, & Big Pharma

Bisphenol A, or BPA, is a synthetic chemical widely used in the making of plastic products ranging from bottles and food can linings to toys and water supply lines. When these plastics degrade, BPA is released into the environment and routinely ingested.

New research, however, from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine suggests it is the metabolic changes that take place once BPA is broken down inside the body that pose the greater health threat.  More than 90 percent of all Americans are believed to carry varying levels of BPA exposure.

In recent years, numerous studies have reported alarming associations between BPA exposure and myriad adverse health and development effects, from cancer and neurological disorders to physiological defects and, perhaps, a cause of childhood obesity.

Of particular concern is that BPA exposure is correlated with disruption of estrogen signaling. The chemical’s molecular structure is similar to that of estradiol, one of the human body’s three main estrogens, suggesting that BPA binds to estrogen receptors. The estrogen receptor is designed to grab and hold estradiol and related estrogens....

Raw Milk Police Defeated as Jury Finds Minnesota Farmer Not Guilty

A small victory over the raw milk police, though the government is quick to state this ruling doesn’t set any precedent.

The Star Tribune reports:

A soft-spoken Minnesota farmer was cleared of violating state laws for distributing raw milk Thursday, a verdict advocates for such foods called their first major legal victory.

After a three-day trial and more than four hours of deliberation, a Hennepin County jury found Alvin Schlangen not guilty of three misdemeanor counts of selling unpasteurized milk, operating without a food license and handling adulterated or misbranded food.

[…]In a statement, an Agriculture Department spokesman said, “We strongly disagree with this ruling,” and added that the state provided sufficient evidence to show that Schlangen violated the law.

“This narrow ruling does not wipe away the fact that many children and adults have gotten dangerously sick from consuming raw milk. It also does not wipe away the other legal rulings that have upheld MDA enforcement actions,” the statement said.

Excuse me for ranting, but how many people have not only gotten “dangerously sick”, but died as a result of the dozens of wars the U.S....

‘Monsanto Protection Act’ to Grant Biotech Terrorists Total Immunity Over GMO Risks?

Posted on Jul 17, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Health, Food News, & Big Pharma, Urban Gardening, Farming & Homesteading

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Source: Natural NewsWhile millions of Americans were busy celebrating freedom from tyranny during the recent Independence Day festivities, Monsanto was actively trying to thwart that freedom with new attacks on health freedom. It turns out that the most evil corporation in the world has quietly attached riders to both the 2012 Farm Bill and the 2013 Agriculture Appropriations Bill that would essentially force the federal government to approve GMOs at the request of biotechnology companies, and prohibit all safety reviews of GMOs from having any real impact on the GMO approval process.

The Alliance for Natural Health – USA (ANH-USA), the Organic Consumers Association (OCA), and several other health freedom advocacy groups have been actively drawing attention to these stealth attacks in recent days, and urging Americans to rise up and oppose them now before it is too late. If we fail to act now as a single, unified community devoted to health freedom, in other words, America’s agricultural future could literally end up being controlled entirely by the biotech industry, which will have full immunity from the law....

Farmageddon: the Truth About the Food and Dairy Industry

Posted on Jul 08, 2012 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Health, Food News, & Big Pharma, Urban Gardening, Farming & Homesteading

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Americans’ right to access fresh, healthy foods of their choice is under attack. Farmageddon tells the story of small, family farms that were providing safe, healthy foods to their communities and were forced to stop, sometimes through violent ac-tion, by agents of misguided government bureaucracies, and seeks to figure out why.

Filmmaker Kristin Canty’s quest to find healthy food for her four children turned into an educational journey to discover why access to these foods was being threatened. What she found were policies that favor agribusiness and factory farms over small family-operated farms selling fresh foods to their communities.

;

Instead of focusing on the source of food safety problems — most often the industrial food chain — policymakers and regulators implement and enforce solutions that target and often drive out of business small farms that have proven themselves more than capable of producing safe, healthy food, but buckle under the crushing weight of government regulations and excessive enforcement actions.

Farmageddon highlights the urgency of food freedom, encouraging farmers and consumers alike to take action to preserve individuals’ rights to access food of their choice and farmers’ rights to produce these foods safely and free from unreasona-bly burdensome regulations....

Merck Vaccine Fraud: Questionable Efficacy, Monopolization, and Greed

Merck has known for a decade that its mumps vaccine is “far less effective” than it tells the government, and it falsified test results and sold millions of doses of “questionable efficacy,” flooding and monopolizing the market, a primary caregiver claims in a federal antitrust class action.

Alabama-based Chatom Primary Care sued Merck on Monday, the week after the unsealing of a False Claims Act complaint two relators filed in 2010.

Those relators, Stephen Krahling and Joan Wlochowski, were Merck virologists who claim in their unsealed complaint that they “witnessed firsthand the improper testing and data falsification in which Merck engaged to artificially inflate the vaccine’s efficacy findings.”

… seeks to represent the class of all those who bought Merck’s mumps vaccine from Jan. 1, 1999 to today.  It seeks damages for monopolization under the Sherman Act, violation of state consumer protection laws, unjust enrichment and breach of warranty....

In times of uncertainty, we humans like to stockpile and hoard.  We seek information that will keep us safe and provide for our well-being.  One of these topics will invariably center around medical knowledge or first-aid in case of an accident, sickness, or injury.  Many of us already have a well-rounded medical kit, or basic skills in how to treat traumatic injuries.  But one question I see and hear a lot of people talk about is medicine, and their lack of concrete, factual information when it comes to antibiotics – and specifically, whether it is safe to use animal antibiotics in humans.

Many other questions typically revolve around,

“Where can I find prescription-quality medicines?”

“My doctor won’t prescribe me common antibiotics for long-term disasters or bugging out.”

“What medicines should I stockpile?”

What this article will attempt to provide is the answer to these very questions, and more.  While I am no fan of Big Pharma, I  understand the amazing capabilities and modern need for some medicines, such as Doxycycline, Amoxicillin, and Penicillin.  There are many natural antibiotics, and antibacterials, in nature.  ...

Michigan Govt Unleashes Armed Raids on Small Pig Farmers

Why does the state respond to people who sell homekilled meat in the same way that it responds to people who violently attack the state? … It’s because ubiquitous, small scale agriculture represents a greater threat to state power than armed resistance.

Via: Natural News:

NaturalNews can now confirm that the Michigan Department of Natural Resources has, in total violation of the Fourth Amendment, conducted two armed raids on pig farmers in that state, one in Kalkaska County at Fife Lake and another in Cheboygan County. Staging raids involving six vehicles and ten armed men, DNA conducted unconstitutional, illegal and arguably criminal armed raids on these two farms with the intent of shooting all the farmers’ pigs under a bizarre new “Invasive Species Order” (ISO) that has suddenly declared traditional livestock to be an invasive species....

Judge Orders FDA to Cut Out Antibiotics from Animal Feed

A federal judge on Thursday ordered U.S. regulators to start proceedings to withdraw approval for the use of common antibiotics in animal feed, citing concerns that overuse is endangering human health by creating antibiotic-resistant “superbugs”.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Theodore Katz ordered the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to begin proceedings unless makers of the drugs can produce evidence that their use is safe.

If they can’t, then the FDA must withdraw approval for non-therapeutic use of those drugs, the judge ruled.

Hayden’s Note:

This is yet another huge win for real food safety and health.  “Therapeutic” animal use of drugs accounts for over 80% of the antibiotic use in America, and that directly translates to your dinner plate.  Forcing the drug makers to prove the effectiveness and need for their Big Pharma cocktails should be one of those, “Duh!” moments, but this debate has been ongoing since the 1970’s, as noted below:

The FDA had started such proceedings in 1977, prompted by its concerns the widespread use in livestock feed of certain antibiotics – particularly tetracyclines and penicillin, the most common....
