Health Canada, CFIA and the local health departments across Canada are on the loose to chase the wrong goose.
First of all please read the following excerpt based on official data from the US.
Since Government is relying a lot on the research data from the US, I will assume that I can do the same thing. Continue reading
From SOTT.net (Signs of the Times):
“The first GM food crop containing human genes is set to be approved for commercial production.
The laboratory-created rice produces some of the human proteins found in breast milk and saliva.
Its U.S. developers say they could be used to treat children with diarrhoea, a major killer in the Third World.
The rice is a major step in so-called Frankenstein Foods, the first mingling of human-origin genes and those from plants. But the U.S. Department of Agriculture has already signalled it plans to allow commercial cultivation. Continue reading
The latest, from David E. Gumpert at The Complete Patient blog:
“….I’m not especially enamored of the public employees in Wisconsin. Remember, they include bureaucrats with the Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection, who have been going after dairy farmers with a vengeance during the last couple of years. I wouldn’t mind seeing their budgets cut so far back that many of them would have to find real jobs. But I dislike even more the scapegoating that is driving the Wisconsin budgetary situation.
It’s a situation not unlike what we face with the regulation of raw dairy. We see the regulators jump on any indication of illness, while sanctioning huge numbers of illnesses and deaths from prescription drugs and all kinds of lifestyle problems. Continue reading
The following excerpt from Augie’s “Journal of Living Food and Healing” includes excerpts from a Forbes magazine piece titled “Unlocking the Genetic Secrets of Autism“. Augie’s commentary is indented:
Henry Miller and Elizabeth Whelan, authors of the Forbes story
Forbes magazine published an article today called “Unlocking The Genetic Secrets Of Autism” by Dr. Henry I. Miller and Elizabeth Whelan. The subtitle is: A new study will spread greater aware ness of the public health benefits of wider immunization.
I must disclose that I used to be a fan of Ms. Whelan in the 80s and 90s as she was and still is President of the American Council on Science and Health. I admired her then, when I was pro-big business, because she was superior in explaining that “science” shows that industrial food and food additives were perfectly safe and were of no long term consequence. But, since being some what enlightened to farm fresh food and the leading nutritional science education, I concluded that Ms. Whelan is a Queen Pawn for Big Food. Now, I am convinced of this. But today I was not surprised to see that she and her team of 400 scientists are still playing their magic for Big Food– but was shocked to are doing it now for the nutritional health and pharmaceutical industry– all in the name of consumer education– like the many other tax-exempt, non-profit front groups.

Here’s a great video describing an extremely well-documented case of news manipulation on a story involving Monsanto. This story is from a few years back, so if you pay attention to alternative news sources, you may already have heard it. Stay tuned though, there’s more recent news to follow.
We found this video on the Journal of Whole Food and Nutrition.
And lest you think these sorts of things happen only at corporate broadcasters like Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News, here’s a recent story about news distortion at PBS, which you’d think would be an exemplar of responsible news gathering in America.
But what were we thinking? “They” wouldn’t want Americans to learn that there are countries out there — Canada for instance — which don’t rely on corporations to provide medical insurance coverage. American medical insurance corporations wouldn’t like that one bit! Continue reading
