PR Watch: Whole Foods Market Caves to Monsanto

Whole Foods Market

Whole Foods Market

After 12 years of battling to stop Monsanto’s genetically-engineered (GE) crops from contaminating the nation’s organic farmland, the biggest retailers of “natural” and “organic” foods in the U.S., including Whole Foods Market (WFM), Organic Valley and Stonyfield Farm, have agreed to stop opposing mass commercialization of GE crops, like Monsanto’s controversial Roundup Ready alfalfa. In exchange for dropping their opposition, WFM has asked for “compensation” to be paid to organic farmers for “any losses related to the contamination of his crop.” Under current laws, Genetically-Modified Organisms (GMOs) are not subject to any pre-market safety testing or labeling. WFM is abandoning its fight with biotech companies in part because two thirds of the products they sell are not certified organic anyway, but are really conventional, chemical-intensive and foods that may contain GMOs and that they market as “natural” despite this. Most consumers don’t know the difference between “natural” and “certified organic” products. “Natural” products can come from crops and animals fed nutrients containing GMOs. “Certified Organic” products are GMO-free. WFM and their main distributor, United Natural Foods, maximize profits by selling products labeled “natural” at premium organic prices.

Hospitals, cancer centers now getting women drunk at ‘mammogram parties’ to lure them into having their breasts irradiated

Drunken Mammogram

Drunken Mammogram

(NaturalNews) The cancer industry has apparently become so desperate to recruit new customers that it is now resorting to what can only be described as a type of medical date rape. A number of hospitals and cancer centers across the country are reportedly now holding community-driven “mammogram parties,” a deceptive cancer marketing scheme that basically entails deliberately getting women tipsy or drunk on alcohol with their friends and neighbors in order to entice them into getting medically molested via mammograms.

The horrendous bait and switch tactic is taking place under the guise of “saving lives,” as it is specifically designed for women who feel uncomfortable with getting mammograms, and who would otherwise avoid getting them if it were not for the added pressure of being wined and dined in a comfortable and relaxing environment. Women are being encouraged to “grab their girlfriends” for a night out at the local cancer center, during which time they take turns getting blasted with ionizing radiation in between munching down fancy cheeses and chocolate fondue, and sipping down delectable wine.

Eric Topol, a well-known cardiologist and professor of genomics at Scripps Research Institute, has broken ranks with many other heart doctors tonight with a New York Times Op-Ed in which he says many patients might want to reconsider their use of statins such as Lipitor, Crestor, and Zocor in light of the risk that these drugs might cause diabetes.

“We’re overdosing on cholesterol-lowering statins,” Topol writes, “and the consequence could be a sharp increase in the incidence of Type 2 diabetes.”

NaturalNews: HIV vaccine infects 41 volunteers, vaccine trials canceled

(NaturalNews) Yet another “experimental” vaccine for HIV has proven to be even more dangerous than the virus itself. At least 40 men participating in a taxpayer-funded government study entitled “HVTN 505 clinical trial,” which began in 2009, were recently found to have contracted HIV from the vaccine itself, prompting an immediate end to the deadly trial.

Crafted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the study initially included more than 2,500 men from 19 cities. All the men admitted to either having sex with other men, or to having sex with transgender individuals. Half of the men were assigned to receive the experimental vaccine HVTN 505, while the other half was reportedly given a placebo vaccine with unknown contents.

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.

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.
