" Control The Food Supply, and you control the people."
Acting on information from a “key intelligence source,” CBS News claimed that terrorists are trying to poison our food supply on Monday. This may come as a shock, but some researchers have already identified several thriving “food-terror cells” who’ve been operating from within our borders for years. One is based in St. Louis, Missouri under the cover of a trans-national chemical manufacturer turned bio tech firm. It turns out that Monsanto has been poisoning Americans with the FDA’s approval for at least 12 years.
Mary Nash Stoddard of the Aspartame Consumer Safety Network informs us:
“In 1998, Monsanto applied for FDA approval for a monster molecule, ‘based on the aspartame formula,’ with one critical addition: 3-dimethylbutyl [listed on EPA's most hazardous chemical list]. Neotame is touted as being 13,000 times sweeter than sugar.
On July 5 2002, Monsanto’s Neotame molecule was approved by the US FDA over formally registered objections of the Aspartame Consumer Safety Network and others. Long term effects on humans are unknown. Read the full release at the Aspartame Consumer Safety Network. The food labeling requirements for aspartame have now been dropped for Neotame, and no one is clear why this was allowed to happen. Neotame has been ruled acceptable, without being included on the list of ingredients, for USDA Certified Organic food items and Certified Kosher products with the official letter k inside the circle on labels.
Ever ready to give the public what it craves – guilt-free, low calorie treats that taste as good as sugar, is the multi-billion dollar sweetener industry. The sugar industry pales by comparison in the profit-generating arena. Fake sugars, in the form of Aspartame and now the Aspartame super clone, Neotame, give ‘foodies’ and fitness fanatics false hope and the empty promise that all can ‘have our cake and eat it, too.’ “Not necessarily so.” Don’t think that by avoiding sweet things you won’t get a 3-dimethylbutyl dose. Neotame is quickly displacing molasses as a feed amendment at industrial cattle lots, helping to make those cows’ GMO grain-based diet “more palatable.”
With an even more questing spirit than the alleged al Qaeda plotters, who supposedly planned to put cyanide in our restaurant salad buffets, Monsanto has already managed to put their genetically modified crops into 70 percent of the processed food products on grocery store shelves. The FDA does not require labeling of these disease-causing ingredients. Monsanto’s continued expansion and its infiltration of rural America has been funded by a massive subsidy program authorized by the USDA. Many have written about the revolving door leadership policy between federal food agencies and the corporate behemoth, but few seem to grasp the grave dangers such a good-ol’-boy network entails. The fact is, Monsanto has not produced a “food” product that independent, non-corporate sponsored studies have found to be safe for prolonged human consumption.
Case and point: recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (aka rBGH or rBST). This refers to a genetically modified hormone injected into dairy cows to boost their milk production. Together with being more plentiful (and more puss-filled), milk from rBGH treated cows (despite what the milk-jug label wants you to believe) is detrimental to human health. Sold to factory dairy farmers under the brand name Posilac, rBGH has successfully evaded crucial labeling laws in the U.S. and abroad since it was approved by the FDA in 1994. Posilac was perhaps the most prevalent Weapon of Mass Disease in Monsanto’s well-stocked arsenal until the first wave of unbiased scientific scrutiny forced them to pawn their cancer-causing product off on pharmaceutical giant Eli Lily.
I think it’s about time for Americans to be a little more proactive in fighting food-terrorism. Though most of use don’t have the luxury of producing our own food, we can at least use our powers as consumers to opt-out of supporting terrorist organizations. Just say no to Monsanto products and to a genetically altered, chemically perverted food supply. Let’s stop funding organizations that wreak economic, ecological and biological terror on the civilized world.31st December 2010 By Chris Hinyub Intependent Voter Network | December 24, 2010... more
In 1998 and 1999, former Health Canada scientist, Dr Shiv Chopra, along with two co-workers, Drs. Margaret Haydon and Gerard Lambert, testified to the Canadian Senate Standing Committee on Agriculture and Forestry that they were pressured by senior supervisors to approve drugs of questionable safety, including the genetically engineered cattle drug, Bovine Growth Hormone (rBST) – then produced by Monsanto and Eli Lilly.
In return for their whistleblowing, the scientists were fired from their government positions.
Since then, Chopra has been an outspoken critic of corporate agriculture and its pocket regulators. In this interview by natural health advocate Dr Joseph Mercola, Chopra discusses the five toxic elements of the food supply that should be banned immediately. GM foods are one of them. Chopra also talks inspiringly and from practical experience about how ordinary people can reclaim the food production system from the control of the corporations.

Food: The Ultimate Secret Exposed
Alex Jones & Aaron Dykes
July 30, 2010
The grocery store, along with your kitchen sink, are two of the most dangerous places in the world.
In a special video, Alex Jones addresses one of the darkest modes of power the globalists have used to control the population– food. The adulteration of the planet’s staple crops, genetically-altered species and intentionally-altered water, food and air all amount to a Eugenics operation to weaken the masses and achieve full spectrum domination.

Ohio’s anti-consumer labeling restrictions threaten to eliminate the rbGH-free labels now placed on many dairy brands nationwide. Milk from cows injected with genetically modified bovine growth hormone (rbGH/rbST) has higher levels of pus, antibiotic-resistant bacteria, bovine growth hormone, and insulin-like growth factor-1—linked to higher rates of cancer and fraternal twins.
The Organic Trade Association and the International Dairy Foods Association sued the state of Ohio and LOST. Their case is now in appeal. Demand that Ohio abandon its deadly labeling requirements NOW, before a possible loss in the appeals court forces dairies nationwide to change their labels or give up rBGH-free labeling altogether.
What does Ohio’s law require?
The Ohio law makes specific terms, like “rbGH-free” or “rbST-free” illegal. It forces companies to spell out their claims, such as “The product is not from cows treated with bovine growth hormone.” If a company makes that claim, they are forced to include an even longer disclaimer, such as, “According to the FDA, there is no significant difference between the milk from cows supplemented with rbST, and those not supplemented.”
Furthermore, that disclaimer has to be in the same font size (and at least 7 pt font) as the original claim above, AND it has to be written on the same side of the carton as the claim. Some dairies have already said they are considering abandoning their rbGH-free claims altogether, rather than redesign their package with this nonsense.
Just to be clear, the FDA does NOT require this disclaimer. It was written by Michael Taylor, Monsanto’s former attorney, who was put in charge of FDA policy while Monsanto’s bovine growth hormone was being reviewed by the agency. He “suggested,” not required, dairies to use this disclaimer if they made rbGH-free claims. Taylor later became Monsanto’s vice president, and now he’s back at the FDA as the US food safety czar. Yikes! A few other states have also decided to require the disclaimer, and we will fight them too. But Ohio’s goes much farther with its placement and size requirements, that will discourage use of the rBGH-free claim altogether.Ohio’s anti-consumer labeling restrictions threaten to eliminate the rbGH-free... more
With sales and public perception of bovine growth hormone dropping fast in the U.S., it’s not easy to find reputable scientific organizations willing to endorse such a controversial genetically modified additive. So, in a shameless and desperate maneuver, Eli Lilly (LLY) decided to make some up.
At a Montreal animal science meeting in July 2009, Eli Lilly’s Elanco division sponsored a press release masquerading as a scientific paper that concluded — surprise, surprise — that bovine growth hormone is perfectly safe for cows and humans. Tucked into page two of the eleven-page Q&A document is a claim that “more than 20 leading health organizations in the United States” have endorsed the safety of the synthetic hormone, including the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Cancer Society and the American Medical Association.
The fact that none of these three groups have ever come close to singing the praises of bovine growth hormone — known variously as rBST or rBGH — went unnoticed until last month when a biotech watchdog called the Bioscience Resource Project got wind of the report and started making a few calls. A spokesperson for the American Academy of Pediatricians told the group that the AAP “does not endorse the safety of rBGH.” Ditto for the ACA and AMA.
It turns out that the eight so-called medical and dairy science experts who were paid to write the paper for Eli Lilly came up with a very creative interpretation of the word “endorsement.” One of the authors admitted to the Bioscience Resource Project that the endorsements are “technically untrue.”
“We counted endorsement as failure to oppose rBGH”, said David Clemmons, a professor at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine and a paid consultant for Eli Lilly.
By this twisted standard, as Michael Hansen of Consumers Union points out, the Federal Reserve and the American Automobile Association are also big supporters of bovine growth hormone. Hell, BNET endorses it.
Eli Lilly certainly doesn’t have any easy job trying to lift the fortunes of bovine growth hormone. More than half of the nation’s 100 largest dairies have completely or partially discontinued the use of rBGH, including the largest, Dean Foods (DF). Starbucks (SBUX) and Chipotle (CMG) have gone completely rBGH-free and Walmart (WMT) and Kroger (KR) have banned it from their store brand milk.

Some great news from the US on the genetically engineered cattle drug rBGH developed by Monsanto.
Public health and consumer groups today applauded the decision of the American Public Health Association (APHA) to oppose the use of growth hormones in beef and dairy production by calling for a ban on the use of recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH) in dairy cows and a slate of growth hormones in beef cattle.
APHA is the oldest and largest association of public health professionals in the world, representing 50,000 professionals nationwide. APHA’s resolution follows an official position statement released last year by the American Nurses Association opposing rBGH. The past president of the American Medical Association (AMA) last year asked all AMA members to serve only rBGH-free milk in hospitals.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has estimated that over 42 percent of large dairy operations in the United States inject their cows with rBGH, a synthetic hormone that induces cows to produce more milk. Six steroid hormones are in widespread use in U.S. and Canadian beef cattle to speed weight gain.
"Americans are now awash in environmental hormones, while the science reveals that hormone-related diseases are on the rise," said David Wallinga, M.D., physician/director of Food and Health at the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy. "The most prudent step – and the one called for by APHA – is to reduce the needless and risky addition of hormones to the food chain wherever possible."
APHA's resolution asks the Food and Drug Administration to ban the use of rBGH and growth-promoting beef hormones, and recommends that hospitals, schools and other institutions – especially those serving children – serve food produced without these hormones. The resolution also supports product labeling for consumers to make informed purchasing decisions.
"For too long, regulators have looked the other way while industrial beef and dairy operations use hormones recklessly," said Food & Water Watch Executive Director Wenonah Hauter. "APHA's resolution against this practice sends a clear signal that public health, not industry convenience, should guide U.S. food policy."
The use of rBGH has well-known negative impacts on the health of dairy cows. Human consumption of dairy products produced using the hormone also may increase the risk of certain types of cancer. Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and all 27 members of the European Union have disallowed the use of rBGH. Codex Alimentarius, the United Nations’ main food safety body, twice determined that there was no consensus on the safety of rBGH for human health.
It is widely acknowledged that the use of hormones in beef production leaves hormone residues in meat, putting consumers at risk for prolonged exposure. While European Union authorities have never approved the use of hormones in beef production, the U.S. government has relied on very limited and now out-of-date research to back its claim that it is safe for producers to use growth hormones on their animals.
"In the marketplace, consumers are demanding meat and dairy produced without these hormones," said Martin Donohoe, M.D. of Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility. "But access to safe food should not depend on the whims of the market. It is the government's responsibility to ensure that all consumers are protected."

View Jeffrey Smith’s powerhouse keynote to an audience of more than 1,000 and experience why so many say he is one of the best presenters they have ever seen.
What is not shown is Jeffrey asking the audience at the beginning, "Please rate yourself from 1-100 how vigilant you are at avoiding genetically modified (GM) brands." Using a show of hands by category, most audiences fall in the least vigilant range (1-20). But by the end of Jeffrey's fast-paced multimedia presentation—EVERYTHING changes.
After the audience hears about:
1. The thousands of sick, sterile, and dead livestock, accompanied by unambiguous photos of severely damaged organs in animals fed GM food (e.g. testicles actually changed color),
2. How eating a GM corn chip might transform our intestinal bacteria into living pesticide factories (it's true), and
3. The heavy handed ways the industry covers up GM food dangers,
Jeffrey asks the final question, "Now rate yourself how vigilant you will be NEXT week at avoiding GMOs." The audience is transformed—ready to change lifelong eating habits on-the-spot.
This is how we will tip the scales to a natural healthy diet. Hit these companies where it counts. In their wallets.View Jeffrey Smith’s powerhouse keynote to an audience of more than 1,000 and... more

Michael R. Taylor, the former Vice President for Public Policy at Monsanto has returned through Washington's revolving doors and will now advise FDA Commissioner Margaret A. Hamburg on food safety.
We learn of this discouraging connection on the same day the White House announced its new commitment to upgrading the country's food safety system.
Much hope had been held out for a change in FDA perspective due to Commissioner Hamburg's lack of industry ties. Her career has consisted of public health research and policy positions. Prior to her appointment as FDA commissioner, she worked as the New York City health commissioner. Unfortunately, it appears that with the addition of Taylor, the FDA has remedied that problem.
It seems Taylor is just the man you'd want on the job, if you're concerned about unwanted industry regulation and corporate representation of toxic hormones in your dairy. But, examining bad industry practices that lead to salmonella and E. coli tainted foods? Not so sure about that.
According to a release Tuesday on the agency's website, Taylor will now serve as senior advisor to the FDA head. In the announcement, Hamburg, said of Taylor:
"I am pleased to welcome Mike Taylor back to the FDA," Commissioner of Food and Drugs Margaret A. Hamburg, M.D., said in announcing Taylor's appointment. "His expertise and leadership on food safety issues will help the agency to develop and implement the prevention based strategy we need to ensure the safety of the food we eat."
Taylor's "long and distinguished career" is noted therein without mention of his 7 years of work as an attorney for Monsanto, the giant agricultural biotech corporation.
A few months ago, I posted a story here on The Huffington Post highlighting the insidious way rBGH (the bovine growth hormone) made it into our country's food supply, with the help of Michael R. Taylor. I wrote about the dangerous effects of the addition of rBGH to our dairy supply:
In humans, studies indicate milk from cows treated with rBGH may contain elevated levels of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IFG-1), which can increase the risk of breast cancer and other types of cancer.
Here is a portion of what I detailed about Taylor's connections in that story:
"An excerpt from a 1998 article in The Ecologist magazine details Taylor's journey and its significance:
"In March 1994, Taylor was publicly exposed as a former lawyer for the Monsanto corporation for seven years. While working for Monsanto, Taylor had prepared a memo for the company as to whether or not it would be constitutional for states to erect labeling laws concerning rBGH dairy products. In other words. Taylor helped Monsanto figure out whether or not the corporation could sue states or companies that wanted to tell the public that their products were free of Monsanto's drug."
So, just what will Taylor's duties be?
As Senior Advisor to the FDA Commissioner, he will be expected to:
* Assess current food program challenges and opportunities
* Identify capacity needs and regulatory priorities
* Develop plans for allocating fiscal year 2010 resources
* Develop the FDA's budget request for fiscal year 2011
* Plan implementation of new food safety legislation.

In a victory for local dairy farmers and consumers, Gov. Sebelius vetoes controversial bill that would have limited rbGH labeling on dairy products in the state.
To support Kansas dairy farmers and consumers, Governor Kathleen Sebelius has vetoed legislation concerning the labels on milk products. The bill, HB 2121, faced massive opposition from dairy, consumer, health, animal welfare and environmental organizations across the country; nearly 30 of which wrote a letter to Governor Sebelius, President Obama’s pick to lead the Department of Health and Human Services, urging her to veto HR 2121. The bill passed by the Kansas State Legislature would have required an additional disclaimer on labels for dairy products produced from cows not treated with recombinant bovine growth hormone (rbGH or rbST), a genetically engineered, artificial hormone that induces cows to produce more milk.
The Governor’s office sent out a press release late this afternoon, explaining why she vetoed the bill:
“…the Bill before me…provides for changes in dairy labeling that could make it more difficult to provide consumers with clear information. The milk labeling provisions negatively impact a dairy producer’s ability to inform consumers that milk is from cows not treated with recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBST).”
“Supporters of the bill claim it’s necessary to protect consumers from false or misleading information. Yet there has been overwhelming opposition by consumer groups, small dairy producers and retailers to this proposed legislation. Therefore, pursuant to Article 2, Section 14 of the Constitution of the State of Kansas, I veto HB 2121.”
“I applaud Governor Sebelius’ veto of HB 2121, which would have made it more difficult for dairy farmers who don’t use recombinant bovine growth hormone (rbGH) to label their milk as such. Governor Sebelius clearly recognized that the bill’s provisions on dairy labeling would have made it harder for consumers to get the information they want about the dairy products they consume and would have hindered dairy farmer’s ability to tell consumers that their milk is from cows not treated with rbGH,” said Dr. Michael Hansen, senior scientist at Consumers Union, nonprofit publisher of Consumer Reports.
Due to growing consumer demand, companies are removing rbGH from their dairy products across the country. In addition, over 160 hospitals all over the country have pledged to serve rbGH-free products and the past president of the American Medical Association said in a letter to all AMA members that hospitals should serve only milk produced without rbGH. A recent report compiled by the Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility found that more than half of the 100 largest dairy processors in the country have gone completely or partially rBGH-free due to consumer demand.
“Governor Sebelius made the right decision for dairy producers, businesses, and citizens today,” said Heather Whitehead, True Food Network Director at the Center for Food Safety. “Consumers want more information about the foods we purchase and feed to our families; not less. HR 2121 would have taken Kansas in the wrong direction, and we applaud Governor Sebelius for protecting Kansas farmers and consumers.”
Finally, some good news and a victory. Thank you, Governor Sebelius for voting for consumers, health, the environment, animals, and consumer disclosure. This proves that public demand and pressure CAN bring change. I am proud to say I am one of 8000 people who e-mailed Governor Sebelius from this organzation asking her to veto this bill, and this is only the beginning.In a victory for local dairy farmers and consumers, Gov.

Last week, despite strong citizen and farmer opposition, the Kansas state legislature passed a bill that would limit a farmer’s right to tell their customers about the way they produce milk. Kansas House Bill 2121 included language specifying that, "dairy products promoted as being produced by cows that don't receive injections of artificial bovine growth hormone, also known as rbST or rBGH, would have to include a disclaimer on the label."
The required disclaimer would read: "the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has determined there are no significant differences between milk from cows that receive injections of the artificial hormone and milk from those that do not." That statement is based on an 18-year-old FDA review; however, FDA’s own publications, as well as subsequent scientific studies have shown that there are significant differences, some of which may affect human health. The Kansas bill also goes against long-established Federal policy as outlined by the FDA in a July 27, 1994 letter to New York Department of Agriculture and Markets: "The bottom line is that a contextual statement is not required...and in no instance is the specific statement 'No significant difference has been shown...' required by FDA."
In addition, the Legislature tacked on the dairy labeling rules of HB 2295 as a rider on HB 2121 without a hearing in the Senate Agriculture Committee. This denied the numerous opponents of labeling restrictions the chance to testify. Even with the lack of proper debate, the bill barely passed the Senate by a 22-15 vote, just two votes short of failing, demonstrating that there is barely a mandate for labeling changes in Kansas.
Due to growing consumer demand, companies are removing rbGH from their dairy products across the country. In addition, over 160 hospitals all over the country have pledged to serve rbGH-free products and the past president of the American Medical Association said in a letter to all AMA members that hospitals should serve only milk produced without rbGH. And, more than half of the 100 largest dairy processors in the country have gone partially or completely rbGH-free to satisfy consumer demand.

Nothing would make me happier than to see RBGH go bye bye forever. Awareness is bringing about a good change regarding dairy products in America. People and farms are shunning milk and dairy products with RBGH. I would love to see the day when it is no more and Eli Lilly loses their shirt for buying it from Monsanto, which probably saw the trend and got out while they could because they are only in this for profit. This also proves that when consumers know what is in their food and what it is made of they do not want fake food. People want wholesome natural ingredients in their food.

Now state departments of agriculture are looking into denying consumers the right to know if there is rBGH in their milk. There is a case already pending in Ohio, and now Kansas. It appears Eli Lilly which was sold the patent to POSILAC for 300 million from Monsanto is carrying on their bullying tradition. What gives them the right to tell retailers and farmers that they cannot place a "no rBGH hormone" label on their milk if it does not have it?
And the lie that comes from Monsanto and the Dept of Agriculture heads that there is no difference is just that... a lie. If that is the case, cows given it would not be sick with mastitis. It is also a known fact that POSILAC creates more IGF-1 which is the hormone that allows cancer cells to grow. It has already been proven by doctors, but yet government continues to lie for Monsanto and now Eli Lilly in order to protect their precious profits over the consumers' democratic right to know and their health.
When this came up in Ohio last summer many people wrote into their state legislature to complain and state that they wanted labelling. The same needs to happen in Missouri now. If you live in Kansas and you want your democratic right to know preserved, write to the Dept.of Agriculture and the state legislature or call and demand disclosure. The fact they would try to keep this off the label is very telling.Now state departments of agriculture are looking into denying consumers the right to... more
