In the United States as well as in Puerto
Rico, over 3,000 chemicals are added to our food for various purposes.
Individually, all these substances are considered legal by the FDA (Food
and Drug Administration), but there are no long-term studies regarding the
combined use of these chemicals.
The food industry is fully aware of the
fact that the vast majority of consumers neither read nor understand
labels, which enables the industry to get away with “murder.” In theory,
the FDA is in charge of our food’s safety, but corporate and political
pressure, especially over the last few decades, have lead to objectionable
compromises: in today’s food, minor amounts of cancer causing substances
are allowed and authorized by the FDA. No testing has been done for
individual additives in combination with other additives. This means, that
no one knows the actual effect of these combinations, and no one protects
the consumer from these additives.
To make matters worse,
many labels are misleading. Statements like “all natural ingredients”
or “no preservatives added” often have harmful additives. In
other words, the food industry is ruthless when it comes to manipulating the
Generally speaking, most of our commercial food
is not safe for consumption anymore, and we can see an extreme rise
in food-related diseases. In addition to harmful additives, the
corporate food industry has silently added genetically modified
substances into most processed foods. About 70% of our foods today
contain genetically modified ingredients that are not labeled. The
GMO industry is spending hundreds of millions of dollars to prevent
lawmakers from forcing them to label food as “genetically modified."
In fact, the GMO industry is still allowed to label their food as
Here a list of some of the
most notorious corporations who are vehemently against GMO labeling
and who have spent significant amounts of money in order to prevent
the passing of any law that would require them to identify their GMO
As usual, the first and foremost is
Monsanto. Close behind (in terms of money spent) is DuPont. Then come

Ocean Spray Cranberries, Campbell Soup, Biotech Industry Organization,
Abbott Nutrition, Cargill, Welch’s, W.M. Wrigley, Sara Lee, Dole Packaged
Foods, Goya, Clorox, and others.
As of today, GMOs
are not labeled as such at all.
Especially once food is packaged or
processed, there is no way to tell if and how it is genetically modified.
So far, these ruthless corporations
have succeeded in not only to influencing the United States government, but also
to infiltrate it. In late 2012, WikiLeaks revealed how much power and
influence Monsanto has thanks to key positions within the United States
government: under Monsanto’s lead, the U.S. is threatening nations who
oppose Monsanto with military-style trade wars, which is supported by the
fact that many U.S. diplomats work directly for Monsanto.
Monsanto has succeeded to also infiltrate the court systems
(Clarence Thomas: Supreme Court judge;
formerly, Monsanto’s lawyer. Elena Kagan: Supreme Court judge; formerly,
federal solicitor general defending Monsanto). President B.H. Obama, Monsanto’s
biggest political supporter so far has personally appointed
former Monsanto employees and lobbyists in some of the highest
positions within the USDA (Tom Vilsack, Roger Beachy, Ramona Romero),
FDA (Michael Taylor), and key agriculture (Anne Veneman, Rajiv Shah) and
trade positions (Islam Siddiqui).
Last but not least, on
March 26, 2013, Obama signed the Monsanto Protection Act, which in
essence states that biotech crops, which are deregulated to begin
with, are granted their deregulation status while legal challenges
to the safety of the crop is underway. Obama was lying through his
teeth when he promised before election that "every person has a
right to know what's in his food." As soon as he was elected,
he helped in any way possible to avoid GMO foods being labeled as
Over the years, we had to
witness that Obama was all along a stalwart operative on behalf of
Monsanto, the biotech industry, GMOs and a corporate agriculture take
over. It would be more appropriate to call him "the global GMO
president", than president of the
The combination of dangerous corporations
and corrupt governments has severe effects on the local and global food
industry. Interestingly, the unhealthiest foods on the planet are not found
in "third world" countries, but right here in Puerto Rico and the United
Some people think that
the solution to this dilemma is to just eat organic. Unfortunately,
the organic movement has long been infiltrated by the same
corporations who are forcing GMO Frankenfood down everyone’s throats.
Under the pressure of Monsanto & Co, the USDA has significantly
altered the meaning of the term “organic”, and today’s biggest
players in the organic market are - you guessed it right – giant
corporations who have zero interest in the true meaning of “organic."
After ridiculing and fighting the organic movement, they eventually
realized that it was best to take it over and make huge
profits in the name of “organic."
Since the masses of people have been well
trained to not think about issues like “food”, even many of the
alternative thinking people end up eating low quality, contaminated
food that is officially labeled as “USDA certified organic”.
Here some of the main powers who control and
dominate today’s “organic” food market:
Cola owns the “organic brands” Honest Tea,
Odwalla, Simply Orange.
Agra owns Hunt’s Organic, Lightlife (vegan
and vegetarian meat substitutes), Orville Redebacher’s Organic.
Foods owns Silk Soymilk, Organic Cow of
Mills owns Cascadian Farms, Cheerios,
Food Should Taste Good, Nature Valley
Danone owns Stonyfield Farms.
Hershey’s owns Dagoba Chocolate.
Celestial owns amongst others: Arrowhead
Mills, Celestial Seasonings, Earth’s Best, Gluten Free, Greek God’s,
Health Valley, Linda McCartney, Maranatha nut butters, Rice Dream,
Soy Dream, Walnut Acres, Westrae Natural, West Soy.
Kellogg owns Bear Naked, Kashi (Kashi cereals
Kraft owns Back to Nature.
Mars owns Seeds of Change
Pepsi owns Dole, Naked Juice, Ocean Spray,
Tostito’s Organic, Tropicana.
In summary, food labeled as USDA organic is not
safe anymore, and can therefore also not be recommended to conscious
consumers. The only safe food is self-grown food from heirloom
seeds, grown in an environment that is not contaminated by the GMO
or other toxic industries. Buying processed foods automatically
means supporting corporations that work against our interest, and
running the risk of eating unhealthy or outright dangerous
It would take me a very long time to go over all
the 3000+ chemical additives in our food, and it would be too
much information to digest for most readers. I therefore want to focus in this
paper only on most of the worst food additives I know of
that are in common, processed foods.
The following list is in alphabetical order,
and I do hope that this article helps conscious consumers to avoid
at least the worst of what they are confronted with when buying food
at the next grocery or even health food store:
common artificial sweeteners used in baked goods, chewing gum,
gelatin desserts and soft drinks. Linked to causing low blood sugar attacks
(Acesulfame potassium works in the body by stimulating the secretion
of insulin in a way that may lead to reactive hypoglycemia), cancer,
elevated cholesterol. Acesulfame-K breaks down into acetoacetamide,
which has been found to affect the thyroids of tested animals.
ammonia is not just a cleaning product – its also used as a food
additive today. It can be found in cheese, baked goods, meats (“pink
slime”), peanut butter, mayonnaise, ketchup, gelatin, potato chips,
margarine, wheat gluten, soy protein (isolated type), chocolate
products. In many cases, it does not appear on the label, because it
is often used as a processing aid and not directly as a food
Ammonia is toxic if
inhaled, irritates eye and mucus membrane; may cause mouth ulcers,
nausea, liver and kidney problems.
When news broke that
synthetic ammonia is widely used in the U.S. food industry, guilty
corporations like Kraft quickly downplayed the danger of ammonia,
not mentioning that synthesized and naturally occurring ammonia
affect our bodies differently. Although ammonia naturally occurs in
extremely minor concentrations in various plants and foods, the
synthesized version can not be processed in a beneficial way by the
human body. Synthetic ammonia is primarily used in (damaging)
fertilizers, and should not have any place in foods.
Significantly more toxic than ethanol but FDA
approved; used as a solvent in baked goods, candy, gelatin and
puddings, chewing gum, synthetic flavorings. Causes depression,
Artificial Color FD & C, U.S. certified
food color (Coal Tar Dyes)
additives are largely derived from the coal tar and petroleum
industry and are generally tested on animals. Today, they can be
found in practically ALL processed foods. Some of the artificial
food colors have been banned after it became too obvious that they
can cause nerve damage, hyperactivity in children, learning and
visual disorders, and that they may be carcinogenic.
summary of some of the most common artificial food
No. 1 (Brilliant
Blue): Tested on animals (mice, rats, dogs). Large dosage caused
death in animals. Banned in many countries, but not in the U.S.
No. 2 (Indigotine): Tested on animals. Commonly found in pet food,
candy and beverages. Large dosage caused death in animals. Harmful
to the eyes, skin, respiratory tract.
No. 3 (Fast Green, FCF): Tested on animals. Eye, skin and lung irritant.
Ponceau 4R (Brilliant Scarlet 4R): Carcinogenic
coal tar dye. Recently banned by the FDA after having been approved
for a long time .
No. 3 (Erythrosine): Tested on animals – caused thyroid tumors and
initial stages of cancer. Toxic endocrine disruptor.
No. 40 (Allura Red): Tested on animals. Widely used in candies;
and developmental problems in children. Carcinogenic and
No. 5 (T(Bartrazine): Tested on animals. May cause hay fever,
gastrointestinal problems, skin rashes.
Yellow No. 6 (Sunset

artificial and natural flavorings are chemical lab cocktails by
flavorists. Especially the term “natural flavoring” has become
increasingly ambiguous over time, because it is being used loosely,
no matter whether a flavor is actually natural as in “occurring in
nature”, or a synthetic chemical composition that is called
“natural." Although the primary chemical composition of a truly
natural and artificial flavoring may be very similar, the effect in
the body is fundamentally different: one acts as a food, the other
one acts like a drug. Whereas known toxins in nature are always
forbidden in our foods, synthetic or artificial flavors contain
toxins that are approved by the FDA, without any long term
studies/testing being conducted.
Many artificial flavorings contain MSG (see
below) or HVP (Acid-hydrolized vegetable protein). In general,
artificial flavoring has been linked to reproductive disorders,
Aspartame (Equal, NutraSweet)
Monsanto’s infamous artificial sweetener, found
in diet sodas and other low-cal diet foods. Linked to brain tumors,
lymphoma, seizures, fibromyalgia, epilepsy and leukemia. May cause
menstrual difficulties, central nervous system disturbances; may
affect brain development of unborn fetus. Common side effects:
headaches, dizziness and hallucinations after consuming it.
Aspartame, which was developed by a company
called G.D. Searle in the 1960s, was twice banned by the FDA. G.D.
Searle Chairman Donald Rumsfeld eventually succeeded to have it
approved during Reagan’s administration under the infamous FDA
commissioner Arthur Hayes Hull jr. Monsanto bought the Aspartame
patent in 1985, and not surprisingly, aspartame products were again
sold by the hundreds of millions.
Butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) and butylated
hydroxytoluene (BHT) are used to keep fats and oils from going
rancid. They are mostly found in cereals,
chewing gum, vegetable oil and potato chips. These additives have
been found to cause cancer, kidney and liver damage, infertility,
birth defects, weakened immune system.
While BHT is banned in Europe, it is FDA
approved in the U.S.
This additive is toxic if
inhaled or ingested and it is hard to believe that it is still used
in various foods, primarily in noodles, rice, root starch jelly and
Boric acid can produce toxic symptoms including
vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain in humans upon excessive
intake. Animal studies indicate that ingestion of large amount of
boric acid may cause adverse reproductive and developmental effects.
Testicular lesions and sterility have been observed in experimental
animals. For developmental toxicities, decreased fetal body weight
as well as malformations of the eyes, the central nervous system,
the cardiovascular system and the skeleton have been observed in
Brominated Vegetable Oil (BVO)
synthetic chemical is used as a stabilizer in soft drinks like
Gatorade, Mountain Dew, Fanta Orange, Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, and
others. BVO has caused death in lab animals and is linked to major
organ system damage, birth defects and growth problems, memory loss,
skin and liver problems. FDA approved but banned in many countries
around the world.
Under the pressure of countless concerned
consumers, PepsiCo is now offering to remove BVO from Gatorade.
Since they are dedicated to using dangerous additives, it remains to
be seen how bad the replacement will be.
Butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA), Butylated
Additives used to prevent fat spoilage.
also used as a yeast de-foaming agent; it is found in butter, meats,
cereals, chewing gum, baked goods, snack foods, dehydrated potatoes,
and beer. It is also found in animal feed, food packaging,
cosmetics, rubber products, and petroleum products.
BHT also prevents oxidative rancidity of fats.
It is used to preserve food odor, color, and flavor. Many packaging
materials incorporate BHT. It is also added directly to shortening,
cereals, and other foods containing fats and oils.
Can cause liver and kidney damage, infertility,
weakened immune system, birth defects, cancer. Banned in many
countries but FDA approved.
additive is extracted from red seaweed and is used by a host of
“organic” brands, like Group Danone (Stonyfield), CROPP (Organic
Valley), Dean Foods (Horizon and Silk), Hain Celestial (Earth’s

Once carrageenan is being processed it becomes
“degraded carrageenan”, which is very harmful. Unfortunately, labels
don’t tell you whether it is undegraded or degraded (the latter is

food-grade carrageenan causes gastrointestinal inflammation,
intestinal lesions, ulcerations and even malignant tumors or colon
used in the past to embalm corpses. It is a known carcinogen that
somehow has found its way into our foods (as well as cleaning
products, cosmetics, health care products) – particularly seafood,
soy bean products, hydrated foods and mushrooms. It
is also used in animal feed.
Formaldehyde is a carcinogen.
High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), Corn
HFCS is yet another sweetener that lands on
every list of “top dirty additives”. It is made from the stalks of
the lowest quality, genetically engineered corn.
HFCS can be found in countless low quality soft
drinks, breads, cereals, root beer, pastries, candy bars,
condiments, cookies, cakes, cough syrups, crackers, dairy products,
drink mixes, pickles, ice creams, jams, jellies, syrup, meats,
pastries, salad dressing, sauces, snacks, soups.
HFCS is directly linked to holes in intestinal
linings, one of the main causes of obesity in the U.S., diabetes,
cancer, heart disease, dementia, accelerated aging, liver failure,
tooth decay, and other diseases.
It was interesting to see how the corporate
corn industry responded to the millions of outraged citizens about
the devastating effects of HFCS: they spent millions on false
propaganda that HFCS doesn’t cause any problems and that there is no
difference between GE corn syrup and cane sugar. First, the
process of extracting sugars from corn stalk is a highly chemical
process - there is virtually nothing natural about it. Secondly,
just like cane sugar, HFCS also consists of glucose and fructose, but
not in a 50-50 ratio; instead, the ratio is 55-45 fructose to
glucose ratio in an unbound form. Fructose is sweeter than glucose
and it goes straight to the liver where it triggers lipogenesis (the
production of fats like triglycerides and cholesterol). It is
therefore considered the major cause of liver damage in the U.S.: it
causes a condition called “fatty liver”, which affects over 70
million people in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
have any concern for your health at all, stay away at least from
this one devastating additive.
Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil
The process used to make hydrogenated vegetable
oil (or partially hydrogenated vegetable oil) creates dangerous
trans fats. It is widely used in vegetable shortening, crackers,
cookies, baked goods, salad dressings, bread and dozens of other
It is associated with heart disease, diabetes,
breast and colon cancer, elevated cholesterol.
emulsifier, stabilizer and thickening agent made from cellulose is
not only used in paint but also in our food, primarily in milk
products (cheese, milk, butter, milk-based beverages, dairy-based
desserts) but also in cereal- and egg-based desserts, soups, broths,
sport drinks and other products.
The additive is known to be harmful when
swallowed and on skin contact and is a mutagenic. Allergic reactions
like rashes or itching skin are common side effects.
(Monosodium Glutamate), Glutamates, Free Glutamates
enhancer, commonly found in many packaged or canned foods. It can
also be found in baby food, milk, candy, chewing gum, drinks,
protein bars, protein drinks recommended for seniors, wine, waxes
applied to fruits and vegetables, medications, IV fluids given in
hospitals, vaccines, sprayed on as a growth enhancer of fruits and
vegetables; proposed for use on organic crops. Linked to sudden
cardiac death, neurological damage. The first symptoms experienced
are usually headache, nausea, itching and vomiting. Other side
effects are high blood pressure and reproductive disorders.
When used in supplements, MSG is called
There have been battles between the FDA and
independent researchers about MSG, but the FDA is determined to
promote MSG as “safe”. The FDA has refused to recall foods
advertised as "No MSG," "No Added MSG," or "No MSG Added" even
though those foods contain ingredients that are sources of free
glutamic acid, such as hydrolyzed protein, and are, therefore, in
direct violation of Section 403(a)(1) of the Federal Food, Drug, and

This sweetening and
flavor enhancing additive is very similar to aspartame, and was
developed in 2002. It is also known as “E961”. The product is made
by NutraSweet, a former division of Monsanto. Since it is much
stronger than aspartame, it has also been called “aspartame on
steroids”. It’s proposed use is for chewing gum, as general
sweetener and in cattle feed.
It has been found to attribute to weight
gain, obesity and diabetes. The FDA has ruled that neotame does not
have to be identified on a label. Instead, it is sufficient to
declare it as “E961”. The FDA assumes that all consumers know what
the hundreds of “E numbers” stand for – unfortunately, there is no
known food scientist who knows all the E numbers by heart. The
corporate food industry’s plan is to make India the guinea pig for
based catalysts are employed in the hydrogenation of edible oils and
fats. The presence of nickel as a food additive is linked to
rhinitis, dermatitis, kidney damage, gastrointestinal problems,
asthma, nervous depression and it is known as a carcinogen.
Nitrates, Nitrites, (Sodium nitrates, Sodium
two additives are mostly used in the preservation of meats and fish
(it gives them the red appearance, without which meat would look
gray and stale – like any cadaver).
Since early studies showed that these chemical
compounds form powerful cancer-causing agents in the stomach as well
as headache and nausea, the meat industry immediately spent hundreds
of millions of Dollars to prove that the studies were “all wrong”.
Recent studies have shown a link between cured meat consumption and
leukemia in children. Another recent study has shown links between
cured meat consumption and brain tumors in babies.
often overlooked fact is that if nitrites are exposed to high heat during
cooking, they can convert to nitrosamines, which are carcinogenic.
And when nitrates are used as a food additive or consumed, they can
convert into nitrites. What is similarly overlooked is that
naturally occurring nitrates and nitrites do not have the same
affect as isolated, synthetic nitrates and nitrites – in fact, they
act extremely different within the body.
Olestra is a fat
substitute, mostly used in crackers and potato chips, marketed under
the brand name Olean. This synthetic fat is not absorbed by the body
and can cause diarrhea, loose stools, abdominal cramps and
flatulence, along with other effects. Further, olestra reduces the
body's ability to absorb beneficial fat-soluble nutrients, including
lycopene, lutein and beta-carotene (carotenoids).
additive is used to hold dough together and increase volume; used in
breads and rolls. Potassium bromate is linked to disorders of the
nervous system and the kidneys. Although most bromate eventually
breaks down into harmless bromide, the remaining bromate is
dangerous and carcinogenic. Bromate is banned globally, except for
in the U.S. and Japan.
Propylene glycol monstearate (PGMS)
is created by the esterification of propylene glycol with stearic
acid, which can be corn, peanut or soy based. Stearates are
trans-fats and are known sometimes to be contaminated by pesticide
residues or trace metals from processing. Stearates may come from
animal or vegetable sources.
The additive is used in baked products,
pastries, ice cream and processed foods. It is an emulsifier and is
also present in creams and dough as a conditioner. Slightly more
toxic than propylene glycol in animals, and in large doses produces
central nervous system depression and kidney injury.
preservative, used to prevent fats and oils from becoming rancid.
Used in vegetable oil, meat products, potato products, chewing gum.
Associated with kidney and liver problems as well as
gastrointestinal irritation. Suspected carcinogen.
Propylene glycol (PG)
known as “antifreeze”. How did this toxic compound get into our
foods? PG is
a form of mineral oil, an alcohol produced by fermentation of yeast
and carbohydrates, that is mostly used as coolant or in health care
products. However, today it can be found in frostings, ice creams,
beers, cornbread, coffee, candy, fast food, salad dressings, cake
causes nervous system and kidney damage in animals. Direct ingestion
can cause blindness, kidney failure and death in humans.
Quinine is a bitter
tasting powder made from the bark of the cinchona tree, is known
mainly for its use in malaria treatment. It is used in various types
of tonic waters and flavored (particularly citrus flavored) waters.
Side effects of quinine in large quantities are
bleeding, kidney problems, impairment of hearing, birth defects.
Rapeseed oil was produced in the 19th Century as a lubricant for steam
engines. It became later known as “canola oil”. Rapeseed oil is so
toxic for human consumption that it was banned for a long time by
the FDA. It made its comeback in the 1970s with the new name “canola
oil”, that contained a lower content of the toxic erucic acid that
caused the original ban. One
problem with canola oil is that it has to be partially hydrogenated
or refined before it is used commercially and consequently is a
source of trans fatty acids - sometimes at very high levels.
Rapeseed oil has shown to cause lung cancer; it
may cause loss of vision, central nervous system disturbances,
anemia, constipation, heart disease, and respiratory problems.
Yet another artificial sweetener that is used
in a variety of foods, including baked
goods, such as cookies, muffins and pies, ice cream, and soft
Saccharine is considered to be one of the most
dangerous sweeteners (along with aspartame, acesulfame-K and
sucralose). Its primary ingredient is benzoic sulfimide.
Early tests revealed bladder cancer in rats.
For those with sulfa allergies, saccharin may
cause nausea, diarrhea, skin problems or other allergy-related
Sulfites (Sodium bisulfite)
Sulfites are a group of sulfur-based compounds
that occur naturally in many foods. Natural and synthetic sulfites
are added to several dozens of foods – too many to list here. The
FDA estimates that one percent of the population is sensitive to
sulfites and says that many of those people have asthma.
Sodium bisulfite destroys vitamin B1; banned on
most fresh fruits and vegetables, still used widely on
Still FDA approved in wine, beer and dried fruits.
There are six names used for sulfites: sulfur
dioxide, sodium sulfite, sodium bisulfite, potassium bisulfite,
sodium metabisulfite, and potassium metabisulfite.
Tetrasodium pyrophosphate (TSPP)
is a chemical compound that is used as a buffering agent, an emulsifier, a
dispersing agent, and a thickening agent; it is also used as a food
It is found in chicken nuggets, marshmallows,
pudding, crab meat, tuna, soy based products, baking powders, cat
TSPP can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea.
Unknown to most consumers, many of these
additives are banned in other countries around the world, but they
are fully approved by the FDA in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. One of
the few horrendous additives that is not yet approved in Puerto Rico
are Monsanto’s growth hormones. Here the interesting story behind
the approval of growth hormones in our foods in the U.S.:
order for the FDA to determine if Monsanto's growth hormones were
safe or not, the FDA did not make any attempt for an independent
scientific study on growth hormones. Instead, they went directly to
Monsanto with the request to submit a scientific report. The report
was put together by Margaret Miller, one of Monsanto's researchers.
Shortly before the report was submitted to the FDA, Miller left
Monsanto and was hired by the FDA. Her first job for the FDA was to
determine whether or not to approve the report she wrote for
Surprisingly, the report was approved. Deciding
whether or not rBGH-derived milk should be labeled fell under the
jurisdiction of Michael Taylor, who previously worked as a lawyer
Considering these strong ties between the
biotech industry and our governments, it should be clear to anyone,
that our foods will continue to be increasingly unsafe and
Chemical food additives are not the only source
of toxins in our food. We also have to add government supported
herbicides, pesticides, chemical fertilizers and synthetic
Conventional agriculture, as taught and
promoted by our educational system for the past five decades, not
only just used these substances, it actually depends on them.
Chemical fertilizers are responsible for the deterioration of soil
friability, destruction of beneficial soil organisms, alteration of
vitamin and protein content, increasing the vulnerability of plant
disease and preventing some plants from taking up the minerals they
Independent studies today prove that people
working with synthetic pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and
fertilizers are at elevated risk to develop lung and skin diseases,
cancer and infertility. Many food crops, including fruits and
vegetables, contain pesticide residues even after being washed and
peeled. Although there are government regulations that allow only a
certain level of toxicity, there are more and more studies that
prove the long-term negative effect of pesticides in food.
that it still surprises many people that regular vitamins, available
at any health food store or supermarket can be very dangerous
to our health. Most vitamins and minerals sold today are synthetic;
they are often made from coal tar derivatives, simply because it is
very cheap to produce them this way. Coal tar contains benzoapyrene,
a carcinogenic hydrocarbon. While the deceive consumer thinks that
his bread is “enriched with vitamins”, it is in fact polluted with
synthetic substances. What makes matters worse is that the body
eventually loses its ability to extract naturally occurring vitamins
from food, when being exposed too long to synthetic counterfeits. In
short, the synthetic vitamin and mineral industry is yet another
dangerous scam within the corporate food industry.
the consumer is assured by our government that our food is not just
safe – but "the best food mankind ever had in its history" - it is
not difficult to conclude that this is a lie that will be
increasingly exposed. I have no doubt that food related diseases
will increase exponentially, and that within just a few decades, the
vast majority of our population will have a weakened immune system
and countless food related diseases.
Alright, the system has lied to us and the food
that it promotes is dangerous, denatured and makes us sick. But we
can not forget that the system is also kind enough to sell us the
solution: the pharmaceutical industry and its myriad chemical
products that all have two things in common: they don’t attempt to
deal with the cause of disease, and they are not meant to heal
conscious person may start to wonder now whether these facts are all
just happening by chance or whether our system is purposefully
designed to weaken and poison all of us? I dislike unfounded
conspiracy theories as much as you do but for how long do we all
want to continue to believe that our leaders have the best
of intentions and are just "accidentally" or
unknowingly destroying the planet and our future? Do you really
believe in thousands of unrelated coincidents when it comes to
the horrible decisions our leaders are making on a daily
basis and behind our backs?
critical observers of the corporate food industry have gone as far
as to suggest that there is a eugenicist agenda behind it all.
Quotes like “In
order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000
people per day. It is a horrible thing to say, but it is just as bad
not to say it.” (Jacques Cousteau, 1991 UNESCO
courier) don’t help.
Bill Gate’s father, William H. Gates Sr., was the head of Planned Parenthood, which was founded on
the concept that most human beings are just "reckless breeders" and "human weeds" in need of culling. It seems
that his son is keeping up the tradition by trying to
force-vaccinate the entire planet. Interestingly, in 2010, Bill
Gates bought 500,000 Monsanto shares and he is a strong
supporter of the corporate GMO industry. One of his main missions in
life is to force the GMO industry particularly upon Africa and Asia.
Although it's debatable who amongst our leaders
is a true eugenicist, we do know for a fact that the global
biodiversity is being destroyed at an alarming rate, and that this
destruction is promoted and funded by corporations as well as
governments. We also know that the corporate world is hell-bound on
taking over the global food supply, and that the biotech industry
wants to destroy whatever is left of natural agriculture by
replacing natural foods with lab foods, or more commonly called
Franken foods. It is clear that there is an agenda behind these
developments. The question now is what are we doing about it? What
are you doing about it? I know what I am doing about it: I will
always continue to promote decentralized, highly diversified and
sustainable agriculture, and I will always continue to fight the
negative powers that are taking control over our lives and that are
stealing everyone’s future.
that this article will cause you to read more labels and to openly
reject genetically altered foods and foods with dangerous additives.
I also hope that you will take a strong stand against the corporate
food industry and begin to support locally grown, healthy and
diversified foods. Although it may already be too late to change
things on a larger scale, it is imperative that we implement at
least as much as we can in our immediate environment.
