Hayden’s Note: Cheerios Goes GMO-Free, But General Mills Still Supports GMOs

In a rather surprising move, General Mills makes the announcement that they are no longer using genetically modified organisms in their flagship cereal, Cheerios.

“We switched from what we were using, to non-GMO corn and non-GMO pure sugar cane,” said General Mills spokesman Mike Siemienas.

He said the company did not change the formula and has never used genetically modified oats. The company said that it has always used whole grain oats.

[Whole grain oats that are grown with a hefty dose of pesticides and chemicals?]

But he said the company did switch from using beet sugar, which is sometimes almost always genetically modified, and also switched from certain sources of Monsanto corn to ensure that their corn sources were not genetically modified would not kill all of their customers. He said this change occurred over the last year and required a significant investment.

[Significant investment? Like the $1.1 Million General Mills donated against the labeling of GMO's under California's Proposition 37?]

However, these changes apply only to original Cheerios, he said, because purging genetic modification from the myriad other types, like Honey Nut and Apple Cinnamon, would be “difficult, if not impossible.” – Source: CNN Money

While I applaud any major company making the change to GMO-free products, this is clearly due to public outcry, food activists, and General Mills realizing that in order to survive in the coming age of real food, they must change their act....

We often write about the bio-tech terrorist known as Monsanto, but this time, we felt that a bit of positive information would do more to help spread the word about the dangers of genetically modified organisms (GMOs or GE; genetically engineered food).

One of the best tools in the current fight to avoid GMOs is by purchasing items marked with the Non-GMO Project label.

The Non-GMO Project, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, offers North America’s only third party verification and labeling for non-GMO (genetically modified organism) food and products.

We encourage you to support the brands and products below in recognition of their laudable commitment to ensuring the sustained availability of non-GMO options, and their belief that consumers deserve an informed choice.

Paving the way for other nations to introduce similar legislation and inform consumers what they’re really putting into their mouths, the labeling of products containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs) within the nation of India is now mandated by law. The country’s Ministry of Consumer Affairs declared in a June 5th, 2012 notice that all GMO-containing packaged foods must be labeled by January 1, 2013 or face legal repercussions.

Each package containing GM ingredients will clearly be labeled directly on the prime real estate of the package as ‘GM’. A warning that many heads of organizations and even bodies within the Indian government are praising for its ability to inform individuals as to what they are really feeding their family.

“The labeling will basically help inform the consumer about the presence of GM content in packaged food products,” said B.N.Dixit, Director, Legal Metrology, Department of Consumer Affairs.

 Via: AFP:

France’s government on Wednesday asked a health watchdog to carry out a probe, possibly leading to EU suspension of a genetically-modified corn, after a study in rats linked the grain to cancer.

Hayden’s Note:

I have spoken at length about this very topic. GMOs used to be one of the biggest topics I covered here at TruthisTreason.net, and have compiled a list of the dangers from consuming GMOs. It is currently featured at the top of the main page – 37 Reasons to Avoid Genetically Modified Foods. It appears as though I can now add yet another study and rename it, “38 Reasons…”

Agriculture Minister Stephane Le Foll, Ecology Minister Delphine Batho and Health and Social Affairs Minister Marisol Touraine said they had asked the National Agency for Health Safety (ANSES) to investigate the finding.

“Depending on ANSES’ opinion, the government will urge the European authorities to take all necessary measures to protect human and animal health,” they said in a joint statement....

A DARPA-funded vaccine company working on ways to quickly develop immunizations for potential pandemics, has successfully made over 10 million doses of H1N1 flu vaccine in a single month.

Hayden’s Note:

As if we didn’t already have enough to worry about when it comes to vaccines, DARPA, the research and development arm of the US Department of Defense, is using tax payers’ money to experiment in soaking tobacco with diseased DNA, hoping it will create antibodies in response, in order to create a rapid-production-assembly line of vaccines.  Why do we need to churn out 10 million+ vaccine doses per month from plants whose DNA is being twisted and manipulated?  Why is the military looking for this?  Follow the rabbit hole to its logical conclusion … they are expecting some sort of pandemic.

The company, Medicago Inc., used a “rapid-fire,” plant-based production method to make them, according to DARPA.

DARPA said on July 25, that Medicago Inc. had produced more than 10 million doses of an H1N1 influenza vaccine.

The plant-made community is now better positioned poisoned to continue development and target FDA approval of candidate vaccines,” Dr....

Bill Gates Dumps Another $10 Million into Researching New GM Crops for Agricultural Takeover of Africa

Source: Natural News – Great resource!

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is once again busy funding efforts to promote the spread of the agricultural cancer that are genetically-modified (GM) crops, this time in the form of a $10 million grant it recently issued to a group of British scientists working on new GM crops that require no fertilizer. According to the U.K.’s BBC, the justification behind the need for such research is that the GM crops will supposedly benefit African farmers that are unable to afford fertilizer.

Researchers from the John Innes Centre (JIC) in Norwich will specifically use the grant, which happens to be the largest single investment into GM crops ever made in that country by a private organization, to create novel varieties of corn, wheat, and rice that pull nitrogen out of the air rather than from material fertilizers. Certain crops, including beans already do this naturally, which is what led scientists to begin a process of trying to artificially splice nitrogen-pulling genes into various other crops.

“We believe if we can get nitron fixing cereals we can deliver much higher yields to farmers in Africa and allow them to grow enough food for themselves,” said professor Giles Oldroyd from JIC, lead author of the new study....

‘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....

Win: BioTech Terrorist Monsanto Faced with Paying Back $7.5 Billion to Farmers

Posted on Jun 20, 2012 in Health, Food News, & Big Pharma

Monsanto may soon be forced to pay as much as 7.5 billion dollars back to the farmers who say that the mega corporation took their rightfully earned income and taxed their small businesses to financial shambles. It all started with a monumental lawsuit launched by over 5 million farmers against Monsanto looking to recover financial losses from ridiculous seed taxes that bankrupted many families.

Back in April, a Brazilian court ruled that Monsanto absolutely was responsible for paying back the exorbitant amounts of cash to the farmers, ordering the company to issue back all of the taxes collected since 2004 — a minimum of 2 billion dollars. Afterwards, Monsanto appealed the decision and the case is now suspended until a further hearing is initiated by the Justice Tribune of the local court stationed in Rio Grande do Sul.

Recently, however, the Brazilian Supreme Court declared that any decision reached in a local court case should apply nationally. The result? Monsanto now faces even larger charges, due to the larger legal application on a national level....

High Fructose Corn Syrup isn’t Sugar: The Lawsuits and Health Effects

* Sugar growers seek an injunction over HFCS advertising

* HFCS group stands behind its ads

Sugar producers think recent marketing efforts by manufacturers of high-fructose corn syrup aren’t so sweet.

In a lawsuit filed last year, three sugar distributors say that equating HFCS with real sugar — with slogans like “your body can’t tell the difference” — misleads consumers, trying to offset growing customer concerns about obesity and diabetes.

Audrae Erickson, president of the Corn Refiners Association, said the lawsuit is without merit, as HFCS and sugar are nutritionally and metabolically equivalent.

“Sugar is sugar,” Erickson said.

Hayden’s Note:

Ms. Erickson recently contacted me regarding my upcoming article on high fructose corn syrup, GMO corn, and how sugars effect the human body. The email was certainly attempting to persuade my opinion on HFCS’ effects.  But that’s what lobbyists are paid to do, right?  The Corn Refiners’ Association essentially represents the entire HFCS industry and is little more than a massive lobbying and PR front....

Monsanto Threatens to Sue Vermont if Legislators Pass a GMO Labeling Bill

The world’s most hated corporation is at it again, this time in Vermont. Elected officials are abandoning public interest and the peoples’  will in the face of corporate intimidation.

Despite overwhelming public support and support from a clear majority of Vermont’s Agriculture Committee, Vermont legislators are dragging their feet on a proposed GMO labeling bill. Why? Because Monsanto has threatened to sue the state if the bill passes.

The popular legislative bill requiring mandatory labels on genetically engineered food (H-722) is languishing in the Vermont House Agriculture Committee, with only four weeks left until the legislature adjourns for the year. Despite thousands of emails and calls from constituents who overwhelmingly support mandatory labeling, despite the fact that a majority (6 to 5) of Agriculture Committee members support passage of the measure, Vermont legislators are holding up the labeling bill and refusing to take a vote.

What happened to the formerly staunch legislative champions of Vermont’s “right to know” bill? They lost their nerve and abandoned their principles after Monsanto representative recently threatened a public official that the biotech giant would sue Vermont if they dared to pass the bill....

The World According to Monsanto – Full Length Documentary

For those of you who haven’t seen this amazing documentary, I urge you to sit back and enjoy!  This is a core documentary that you should watch in order to expand your understanding of the dangers that GMOs present.

The World According to Monsanto

Thanks to these intimate links between Monsanto and government agencies, the US adopted GE foods and crops without proper testing, without consumer labeling and in spite of serious questions hanging over their safety. Not coincidentally, Monsanto supplies 90 percent of the GE seeds used by the US market. Monsanto’s long arm stretched so far that, in the early nineties, the US Food and Drugs Agency even ignored warnings of their own scientists, who were cautioning that GE crops could cause negative health effects. Other tactics the company uses to stifle concerns about their products include misleading advertising, bribery and concealing scientific evidence.

White House Refuses to Disclose Ties to Monsanto Lobbyists, Ignores FOIA

Posted on Feb 24, 2012 in Health, Food News, & Big Pharma, Political Issues

Source: RT News

Despite requests made under the Freedom of Information Act for correspondence out of the White House, the Obama administration is simply refusing to comply with calls to disclose discussions with Monsanto-linked lobbyists.

The US-based non-profit group Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) is demanding that the White House comply with a FOIA request for information that might link the Obama administration with lobbyists tied to the Monsanto corporation.

Three-hundred thousands organic farmers across America are currently trying to take Monsanto to court to keep the corporation from continuing its war on independent growers. As a case is composed, the PEER group suspects that the White House’s refusal to comply with the FOIA request could be because Monsanto has some powerful friends on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Particularly, PEER is trying to pry correspondence that came into the inbox of a White House policy analyst from a lobbyist with the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO), which represents Monsanto and other manufacturers of genetically-engineered seeds. The White House says that disclosing the full details of the email could give competing companies an advantage as lobbying secrets are unearthed for the world, but PEER thinks the truth is much worse than that....
