"THE FOOD REVOLUTION" offers a free online summit

Apr 22

When it comes to your family’s health, do you want to: GET INFORMED? PRIORITIZE YOUR HEALTH? MAKE CHOICES THAT EMPOWER YOU, YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR WORLD? STOP BEING VICTIMIZED BY JUNK FOOD MANUFACTURERS? PUT AN END TO FOOD DECEPTION ON YOUR PLATE? TAKE BACK YOUR RIGHT TO HEALTHY FOOD AND TRUTHFUL INFORMATION? Starting this Saturday, April 27th through May 5th, we all have an unbelievable opportunity learn from 24 of the top experts in the field of nutrition and wellness about how to do just that.  “The Food Revolution” is an online summit that you can log onto and simply listen and learn (for FREE and without having to leave home). The Food Revolution Summit is for you if… You feel concerned about what’s happening with our food. You want your family to have access to good nutrition. You don’t want to get cancer, diabetes, or heart disease. You like to shop at farmer’s markets or to buy locally grown food. You’re disturbed by factory farms and genetically engineered food. You love animals. You want to find out how what you eat connects to the health of the planet. You want your family and friends to eat better but you don’t want to seem like a nag. You love food – perhaps you’re a bit of a foodie – or you love to cook! You want to enjoy food you can trust for a lifetime.  Did you know that… Genetically engineered food is unlabeled, inadequately tested, and you’re probably eating it every day. Some scientists have linked genetically engineered foods to toxic and allergic reactions in people; to sickness, sterility and fatalities in livestock; and damage to virtually every organ studied in lab animals. If you don’t count French fries, ketchup or pizza as vegetables, more than half of Americans eat no vegetables at all. Thanks to the American diet, a child born today in the U.S. has a one in three chance of developing diabetes. Toxic pesticides developed as agents of war and linked to cancer and birth defects are routinely poured on farmland, and traces of them wind up in the food you eat. The same food choices that are good for you can be good for the planet, for farm workers, and for your great grandchildren. Their...

CONSEQUENCES OF THE MONSANTO PROTECTION ACT PASSING

Apr 09

  Just recently, the “Monsanto Protection Act” was passed into law, effectively putting Monsanto above the law.  I wanted to outline who Monsanto is, what the law is, how it was passed, and what it means to you and I and our loved ones’ collective health if we continue to eat the GMO’s (Genetically Modified Organisms) that they are responsible for. First, let’s take a look at Monsanto.  They are one of the world’s largest Biotech companies at over $42 Billion in market cap per year.  Their enormous growth can be attributed to very effectively cornering the market on much of the world’s genetically modified seed supply used to grow crops, and the poisonous pesticides used to fertilize them.  Here’s a link to a great breakdown of some of the wonderful contributions that Monsanto has supplied us over the years: http://gmo-awareness.com/2011/05/12/monsanto-dirty-dozen/ This link also goes into their introduction of GMO’s (genetically modified organisms) to our food supply beginning in the 1990’s.  Today, over 85% of the corn and 90% of the soybeans that go into the food supply in our nation are genetically modified, which translates to about 80% of the processed foods you’ll find in your grocery store having GMO’s in them.  Nearly all fast (fake) food carries GMO’s as well.  What are GMO’s, how do they effect us, and what can we do to avoid them?  Here’s a brief explanation from the foremost expert on the adverse effects of GMO’s, Jeffrey Smith, followed by a parody on GMO’s:   The animated film does a great job (in a humorous and somewhat scary way) of outlining exactly how Biotech’s like Monsanto are treating the population at large like guinea pigs with their pesticides and GMO crops.  Their goal is nothing short of squashing all organic farming worldwide and cornering the food market with their GMO farming methods. How do we stop this?  With our wallets!  As was mentioned, you can go to http://www.nongmoshoppingguide.com/ to find foods that do not have GMO’s.  You can also download the “Shop Non GMO” app to your IPhone, or the “Fooducate” app to your android phone.  Both of these apps allow you to scan the barcodes in your grocery store to determine if the...
