NaturalNews: Brave food sovereignty heroes destroy 6,000 genetically-modified sugar beets in Oregon

GMO Burning

GMO Burning is so fun!

(NaturalNews) It appears as though some Americans may finally be waking up to the grim reality that calling their politicians and signing petitions is simply not enough to stem the tide of evil that has overtaken this once free country. For perhaps the first time since genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) were introduced back in the 1990s, food freedom activists have literally taken to the fields to destroy them, making a bold public statement that We The People have had enough of being forcibly poisoned by these genetic abominations.

According to new reports, a total of 6,000 GM sugar beets planted in fields in southern Oregon were found uprooted in recent days. On June 8, roughly 1,000 GM sugar beets were found destroyed in fields leased and managed by the private, Switzerland-based biotechnology company Syngenta, while another 5,000 plants on a different plot, also owned by Syngenta, were found destroyed

NaturalNews: Obamacare to punish healthy eaters as insurance rates double or triple for those who choose to take care of their health

ObamaCare: Overweight vs Healthy

ObamaCare: Overweight vs Healthy

(NaturalNews) According to an analysis just published by the Wall Street Journal, healthy people will pay double or triple their current health insurance rates under Obamacare. Rates for those with chronic disease, however, will be reduced as all the healthy people subsidize their disease lifestyles.

The net effect is that people who choose to follow a healthy lifestyle — eating well, taking nutritional supplements, exercising and avoiding junk foods — will be financially punished by the federal government while those who choose to follow a disease and sickness lifestyle — eating junk foods, taking meds, refusing to exercise, etc. — will be rewarded by government.

Mark Munoz - Before & After

Mark Munoz lost 261 – 199lbs in 5 months

Last summer, Mark Munoz was knocked out by Chris Weidman. Then he had to recover from a foot injury sustained while training for the Weidman bout. It was a rough turn of events for a fighter who had title shot hopes and who had been on a four-bout winning streak.

He turned to what so many turn to for comfort in tough times — food. Munoz talked about his struggles on his website.

Yahoo Shine: Restaurant Meal Named ‘Worst in America’

From the Editor: Fried foods, sugar and GMO’s should be the first things a healthy person removes from their diet. Unfortunately, these chemically warfare vehicles such as the Big Catch contain all three of these in deadly combination. A healthy person does not eat from any of the large chain fast food restaurants.

Long John Silver's Big Catch

Why would anyone eat this poison? Long John Silver’s Big Catch is the worst meal in America!

Nutritionists have been telling us to eat more fish for years, but not all fish is prepared in a healthy way. The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) has revealed the worst restaurant meal in the United States to be Long John Silver’s Big Catch.

On Tuesday, the consumer advocacy group tweeted:

The restaurant chain introduced the meal, which includes a piece of fried haddock, hush puppies, and onion rings, in late May for the bargain price of $4.99 writing in a press release, “The Big Catch is a premium menu item, with the classic taste that Long John Silver’s is known for.” While it may be a lot of food for a small amount of money, it’s no great deal in terms of nutrition.

EPA Set to Increase Levels of Controversial Chemical on Food

gmo-crop-charts2“Pesticides may be putting young children at risk of cancer” read a headline. Other headlines have suggested that pesticides are linked to Parkinson’s, autism and other conditions.

That can be tough to hear for anyone who has put regular, non-organic groceries into her shopping cart and on her dinner table. So when a headline hit this week that the EPA was seeking to increase the allowable levels of a controversial chemical used on our food crops, it was enough to make me wonder if anyone is watching out for the health of our children or if it is just about the financial health of corporations.

Now some in the industry will argue that we need these chemicals to feed the world. The USDA reports that we throw away 30% of the food that we produce, so this is a hard conversation to have as it is so loaded with emotion not to mention shareholder demands.

Shiitake and other little magical wood mushrooms

Shiitake

Shiitake

Editor’s Note: Shiitake (椎茸) and maitake (舞茸) Mushrooms are delicious when properly prepared and can be found at many grocery stores across America. Vitamin D has been in the news quite a bit lately in light of its incredible anti-cancer properties and synergistic effects with calcium and magnesium. Humans produce vitamin D through our skin when we are exposed to ultra-violet light, which happens to be the same way that shiitake produce vitamin D. It has been shown that shiitake exposed to the sun regularly can have up to 46,000 IU of vitamin D! That is an outstanding amount of the nutrient and with the rampant fear of sun exposure, for the possibility of skin cancer, this little wood mushroom may may be the future and present of natural vitamin D supplementation. Between this and the abnormally high copper levels in shiitake, it is no wonder these fungi are gaining more fame and admiration every day!

NaturalNews.com: Shiitake mushrooms help fight cancer, reduce cholesterol, and boost immunity

(NaturalNews) The shiitake, also called the oakwood mushroom or the black forest mushroom in English-speaking countries, is an edible brown mushroom that is native to Japan, China, and Korea. It has been cultivated for over a thousand years, and fresh and dried shiitake remain popular in East Asia today. Like maitake muhsrooms, which bear a similar nutritional profile, shiitake is commonly used in traditional Chinese medicine due to its alleged healing properties.

Though less popular in the West than the East, the shiitake mushroom is nonetheless prized in North America and Europe for their robust taste, curious texture, and nutritiousness. Indeed, some researchers tasked with investigating the health benefits of shiitake have proclaimed it a superfood. Let’s find out why.

Food industry front groups exposed in new report: Monsanto, Coke, Pepsi and more

Wednesday, June 05, 2013 by: J. D. Heyes

(NaturalNews) Some say it’s the best public relations that money can buy, because when you can’t refute the truth about an issue, the next-best thing to do is stack the deck in your favor.

The third edition of a report released last month by the International Food Information Council Foundation is anything but the “reasonable and helpful document” it may outwardly appear to be, writes Michele Simon, JD, MPH, of the Center for Food Safety, in a recent blog post.

Rather, she says, it “is in fact the product of a well-oiled PR machine whose board of trustees includes executives from such food giants such as Coca-Cola, Kraft Foods, and Mars.”

Milk and dairy products cause heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis — interview with Robert Cohen

Milk is PoisonThe following is part three of an interview with Robert Cohen, author of “Milk, the Deadly Poison,” and www.Notmilk.com
Mike Adams: What is it that drove you to have this kind of interest and energy to pursue the truth about milk and dairy products?

Robert Cohen: Three little girls named Jennifer, Sarah, and Lizzie — my daughters. I wanted them to have healthy bodies. I wanted them not to live four years of high school life with zits all over their body like their dad did. And you know something? They’ve been zit free! No acne, and if you look at my book, Milk A to Z, I take every letter of the alphabet and fill in something about milk. Z is for zits, and we know that these cows are actually being milked before they give birth, and that milk is different milk — it’s milk instructing mammary tissue to grow. Little girls have changed these days, but we find that with the secretion of all of these androgens, the cows are constantly using the androgens to produce other hormones. Teenage acne is improved the second we give up milk. It takes a couple of weeks, and the acne’s gone. And these androgens stimulate the sebaceous glands, which are the glands that cause the acne, cause the zits.

So we find a dairy link to a number of human conditions. And I’m not the first to say this — Dr. Spock said this. Dr. Spock sold 75 million copies of his book on child care. The only book that sold more than Dr. Spock’s book in history is the Bible. Dr. Spock said that no human, no child, no adult needs cow’s milk — it’s a deception on the government’s part to promote. And we’re learning, as I’ve said, more doctors are learning today something they were not taught in medical school. You want to look at the etiology of allergies and diabetes? You look at diabetes, you look at the New England Journal of Medicine, July 31, 1992 — right there, you can look it up! It said that exposure to these bovine proteins, bovine serum lactobumin is a trigger for insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, and a few months later, October of ’92, Scientific America talked about the dairy slogan,”Milk, it does a body good.” It said, “Milk, it does a body good — it sounds a little hollow these days.”

Most disease in America is not genetic, but doctors and media lie so you will accept it and stay sick

(NaturalNews) Who ever said doctors are evil? Are they just ignorant of the facts about natural remedies and food borne disease, or do they just like that $400,000 yearly income, that three-story home, that vacation home, those three new cars and that swimming pool in their backyard all too much to give it up?

Folks, let me tell you, CANCER AND ALZHEIMER’S are caused by food toxins, heavy metals, bleach and fluoride in water, and insane chemicals in vaccines. Rarely is cancer inherited, not even breast cancer. Some honest doctors may say that your genes may be “more prone” to get breast cancer if your parents had it (and yes, men get breast cancer too), but the fact is that more than 95 percent of cases are caused by food, drink, skin care and environmental pollutants that are ingested and warp your healthy cells. (http://cancer.stanford.edu/information/geneticsAndCancer/)

Alzheimer’s is caused when heavy metals, plastics, mercury, saturated fats and lab-made synthetics clog the blood (and when they cross the blood brain-barrier), damaging brain cells in the hippocampus, the frontal lobe and the medulla oblongata, the forethought and long term memory sections of the brain. When grandma or great grandpa can’t recognize their immediate family members, it’s not because their mom or dad had a “bad memory” and gave it to them at birth. (http://www.brightfocus.org)

Seventy-five percent of honey bought at the supermarket isn’t real honey

(NaturalNews) Large scale tests on US supermarket honey now reveal that roughly 75 percent of honey on the market isn’t even real. According to investigation by Food Safety News, today’s mass produced honey is often times void of real pollen, artificially processed and laundered from China. Honey manufacturing experts and the World Health Organization agree that real honey must contain true microscopic particles of pollen, to be considered real, with an identifiable source. Honey void of pollen is an artificial, nutrition-void, watered-down scam.

Watered down, heated, pressurized honey not real at all

Much of the honey hitting supermarket shelves is derived from an ultra filtering procedure that heats honey to high temperatures, forcing the natural substance at high pressure through extremely small filters to remove pollen. In this way, manufacturers conceal the identity of the source of the honey, which is a technique used by the Chinese, who have illegally dumped tons of their honey on the U.S. market for years. The Chinese are responsible for dumping dangerous antibiotics, artificial sweeteners, and leeching copious amounts of heavy metals into imported honey products.
