Food, Inc. – Industrial Chicken Farmers – 27 July 2014

(Lucas : This was in 2010, 4 years later there is still this industrial chicken bought by you without any animal worthy keeping, kept in conditions that makes them need antibiotics. Those chickens  are fed to grow faster than they would normally if kept in natural conditions. We also forget the healthcare problems of the sick animals as disease spreads more easily and we forget the slaughter and prep for consumption that also goes without saying is not to standards…. Yes., whose standards…. standards of industry. The standards  that forget we humans need no hormones, antibiotics, and other bacteria, etc washed and bleached with chlorine away for you to consume foods… Wake up to the facts. You CAN have free range and organic chickens kept in normal conditions you also can buy locally and support your little farmers with conscience and a sense of community and sustainability. Wake up and make a difference now and stop eating and supporting this industrial meat from chickens, turkey, cows, goats, etc. Not even thinking about GMO manipulated foods that are pushed also with or without labelling onto your plates and are found in allmost all processed foods. We need to say goodbye to so-called conventional ways or standards by industry sold to your corporate government and to the regulators that are full of those they need to control in an “unbiased and neutral” way. We see only  conflict of interest and lobby or industry making bills to vote yes for on in Congress.  The new attempts to keep you from having proper food is making world (bi-lateral/unilateral) trade agreements and treaties that will force all the shit of the world upon your plate for profit. Your countries and industry are working on that also. We need to make the change in not supporting and buying the crap anymore. Get supporting local farms that want to grow and care for cattle and birds in a natural way with natural, organic food, no industry feed with even their own kind in it fed to them. Set up farmer collectives yourselves and get growing and keeping  animals yourselves as they should be kept naturally and with dignity and respect. If you want to be a vegan or vegetarian just be. Do not be terrorising others with arguments that do not add up either. As studies have shown plants have also memories and feelings. So if you cut or boil a plant for you food know you have killed also and if you buy still goats cheese remember the slaughter of the male goats that are not wanted in the pure for milk productions industry also. Forget all of your double standards and hypocrisy for ONCE. Get working on a new world as there are many ways to do it different in the NOW.  We can do city farms, grow food in our garden and in our homes (horizontal and vertical), there is enough space to set up food forests, pick you food gardens, guerilla gardening if necessary, not used lands could be used to grow permaculture food gardens and parks.  See there is so much more you can do than nagging or shouting at your governments and industry. Just do it different and not be dependent on those that will not listen to you only when they have no profits or no-one that listens to them anymore they will listen… You have the power not the system…. just get it…  The pyramid turns in an instant if you all are ignoring them, are not supporting that what needs to go: like your government and your industry that will not take NO for an answer. Change IS you not your neighbour or those others need to change… You all individually make the change happen. Try it even in the littlest effort you can make.)

 

Food, Biotech Groups Banding Together To Influence GMO Labeling Efforts – 7 February 2014

RT logo(Lucas : And of course big money wants to buy their mandatory labeling GMO legislations asses out and make it voluntary are better said non-existent.  Keep you ground people we do not need the GMO foods and all the misery in health, toxins and other nasty stuff… Get pushing back the GMO dogs in the kennel.)

Powerful farming and biotechnology interest groups announced Thursday they are banding together to push a federal voluntary labeling standard for genetically engineered food in an effort to stem the tide of state legislation seeking to mandate labeling.

The Coalition for Safe Affordable Food consists of 29 formidable trade groups that say they plan to lobby on Capitol Hill for a national standard that would allow manufacturers to voluntarily label food and beverage products made with genetically modified organisms (GMOs). In recent years, voters in states such as California and Washington have narrowly defeated ballot initiatives proposing mandatory GMO labeling, though not without dragging members of the new Coalition into expensive campaigns to defeat the measures.

The group says it will seek to empower the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) “to establish federal standards for companies that want to voluntarily label their product for the absence-of or presence-of GMO food ingredients.” In addition, the Coalition proposes the FDA mandate labels for GMO food or ingredients that the agency deems a “health, safety or nutrition issue,” though no consumables currently fall in such a category.

Listeria does not grow on cantaloupes: Why the deadliest food outbreak of the decade is yet another food scare campaign

via naturalnews.com  Listeria does not grow on cantaloupes: Why the deadliest food outbreak of the decade is yet another food scare campaign September 30, 2011 by: Ethan A. Huff,.

(NaturalNews) Disease outbreaks associated with the US food supply have become an all-too-common occurrence these days, with at least six major outbreaks having been reported just this year alone. And with the most recent listeria outbreak affecting Colorado-sourced cantaloupes, where at least 13 people have died and 70 others have been sickened thus far, officials and the media are once again working the public into a frenzy about food safety.

On September 14, 2011, Holly, Co.-based Jensen Farms announced a recall of more than four million Rocky Ford cantaloupes it had shipped to at least 17 US states between July 29, 2011, and September 10, 2011. The recalled cantaloupes are said to be contaminated withListeria monocytogenes(listeria), a bacterium not typically associated with produce, and customers are being urged to discard the dangerous fruit.

Since the recall announcement was made, the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the mainstream media have been repeatedly warning the public about the tainted melons, and citing purported death and injury numbers to apparently scare the public into paying closer attention to the issue.

On one hand, such warnings are necessary and helpful in preventing further injuries and deaths, and can be considered a public health benefit. On the other hand, they conveniently help promote the government’s agenda to seize more control over the food supply through expanded “food safety” regulations.

 

Factory farming is responsible for spreading disease to produce

Strangely missing from all the hubbub surrounding the cantaloupe outbreak is any talk whatsoever about what actuallycausedthe outbreak in the first place. Listeria does not just appear on produce, after all — it is typically introduced by outside sources like factory animal feedlots, whose manure cesspools run off and contaminate nearby agriculture fields on a regular basis.

Remember the massive Iowa egg recall from last year? Filthy conditions at the facilities where the eggs had been produced were, of course, responsible for the salmonella outbreak. And yet the FDA tried to use the incident to push for more power over the food supply, including the passage of S. 510, the infamous “food safety” bill (http://www.naturalnews.com/egg_reca…).

As far as the cantaloupes are concerned, a nearby factory farm is likely the source of the listeria outbreak as well. And yet instead of fully investigating the situation to determine the precise cause, government authorities will likely use this outbreak to push for even more regulatory control.
