Honey Bees

A third of the U.S. food supply requires the assistance of the honeybee. As pollinators, they are responsible for foods such as almonds, melons and many different species of the pumpkin family. In the spring, I am grateful yet cautious of the many honeybees that flock to my parsley, blueberries and other vegetables that I grow. Without the help of these hard-working pollinators, mankind would starve.

The common honeybee pollinates 130 different crops in the U.S. alone, including most fruits, vegetables and tree nuts. The issue of their disappearance is directly linked to Monsanto and its deadly chemicals which are sprayed in many farming communities. In fact, the secret that many farmers will not tell you is that Monsanto pays spies in the form of “neighbours”, shop workers and out-of-towners a ridiculous amount of money to make sure that GMO seeds and chemicals are used! Steep fines, jail sentences and threats of death are also apart of their diabolical scheme.

Your health is being compromised by deceptive marketing practices regarding the “honey” you buy, some of which isn’t really honey at all, despite what it says on the label. Fact: real honey has many medicinal benefits like:

It can help prevent allergies

It helps to sooth a cough

It has antioxidants, enzymes and amino acids

It helps to grow “good bacteria” in your digestive tract

And contrary to popular belief, raw honey helps to prevent tooth decay!

The honey that most of you are buying and ingesting isn’t real. It’s honey from a manufacturing plant in China made with white sugar, malt and rice syrup and a powder called jaggery. What the FDA hides from the public is the deadly substance that the Chinese add to the “honey” they make in their labs called “chloramphenicol.” Chloramphenicol, whose root word is Chlora…meaning “green”, alters your DNA and caused irreparable damage to your melanin. Biological Warfare, anyone? 

Approximately 75% of the honey that we now ingest is processed in a lab, then it is smuggled into the country in drums. It is then marked-up at a rate of 400% and labeled as the sticky, sweet substance that you use in teas, cakes and pies. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) states that “honey” that’s been ultra-filtered and no longer contains pollen IS NOT honey.

In their investigation, they discovered the following:

76 percent of honey samples bought at grocery stores (such as TOP Food, Safeway, QFC, Kroger, Harris Teeter, etc.) were absent of pollen.

77 percent of the honey from big box stores (like Costco, Sam’s Club, Walmart, and Target) were absent of pollen.

100 percent of the honey sampled from drug stores (like Walgreens, Rite-Aid, and CVS Pharmacy) were absent of pollen.

Black family, to show you how serious this is for us, here is a graph (and some info) I recopied from WorldTruth. {Thanks World Truth for the info!}

This is a serious concern for the black population as we are their primary targets. Please stock up on as many seeds as you can and relearn the joys of farming/ gardening.

What’s in Your Cereal?

26 Sep 2012

By now, nearly everyone interested in healthy living is aware of the recent research linking Monsanto’s GMO corn to cancer tumors and an increase risk of premature death in both men and women. News of the research is spreading like wildfire across the ‘net, and support for Proposition 37 – which seeks to label GMOs in foods — is growing by the day.

But the media has not yet reported on the everyday foods being sold in grocery stores right now and made with Monsanto’s genetically modified corn (GM corn). Which foods are most likely to contain Monsanto GM corn? To answer this question, I visited a local grocery store in Austin, Texas and purchased 10 breakfast cereals made with high levels of non-organic corn.

According to the Center for Food Safety, up to 85% of the corn grown in the United States is genetically modified. This means corn-based cereals that use non-organic corn have a very high likelihood of containing GM corn.

The following list presents the top 10 popular breakfast cereals most likely to contain Monsanto’s genetically modified corn. For the record, none of these cereals claim to be GMO-free, nor made with organic corn. The exact GMO content of these cereals remains a mystery precisely because manufacturers of these cereals refuse to label them with their GMO content. This lack of full disclosure by the food industry underscores the urgent need for a labeling law so that consumers can make an informed decision.

Legal note: In no way are we claiming these cereals will cause cancer tumors to grow in your body or that they pose an immediate risk to your health. Those studies have not yet been done on humans. GM corn is an experimental crop with unknown long-term effects of humans. Breakfast cereals made with GM corn may turn out to pose a significant long-term risk to human health, but that has not yet been determined. This article is presented in the public interest, reflecting reasonable caution over a common food ingredient which French scientists have now convincingly linked to cancer and premature death in studies conducted on rats.

Which cereals contain no GMOs? Nature’sPath

There is only one brand of breakfast cereal I know of that’s 100% non-GMO and 100% organic across their entire product line. That company is Nature’s Path:

Natures-Path

If you buy breakfast cereal, and you don’t want to eat Monsanto’s GM corn, always choose cereals from Nature’s Path. This is my No. 1 most highly trusted cereal company.

Many “natural” brands that appear to be healthful and natural are actually not organic or GMO-free. For example, “Barbara’s Bakery” cereals are not organic. Although they are positioned in store shelves alongside other organic cereals, they are actually made with conventional crops grown with pesticides which may include Monsanto’s Roundup.

You may also notice that most of the cereals most likely to contain GM corn are children’s cereals. It is the children in America who are being fed the most GMOs. This represents a highly unethical food experiment being conducted on an entire generation, and the long-term effects of human consumption of GMOs are simply not known.

What we do know is that rats fed this very same Monsanto GM corn developed shockingly large cancer tumors.

The photo released by the French research team, showing large cancer tumors growing at a strongly heightened risk in rats fed a “lifetime” of Monsanto’s GM corn, is shown below. According to that study, 70% of females died premature and showed significant damage to their liver, kidneys and other organs.
