What if Monsanto were in charge of ALL our food choices?
Believe it or not, this is in danger of happening. If you and I don't do something to stop the march, it will happen as surely as night follows day. If Monsanto is given the reins, bye bye God's green earth, hello GMO.
Here are two things you can do right now that will turn the tide:
1. Donate $5 to the Morningland Dairy defense fund. This is the single most important battle going on today. If we lose this battle, Monsanto and its FDA will succeed in breaking down the gates to every single one of our organic and real food farms. Pastured eggs and beef are next, count on it.
2. S510, the Food Safety & Modernization Act, will very likely be voted on between Nov 15 and Christmas break. Unbelievably, passage seems likely. In just 20 minutes, you can do two very important things. Read the alert here, then email two short notes: one to each of your representatives and a letter to your editor.
Please do this, or Monsanto will be in charge of ALL your food choices in short order. No kidding.
The Monsanto/Raw Milk Real Food Connection
Where do I get the idea Monsanto is behind this? Because the FDA is behind this, and Michael Taylor, ex-VP of Monsanto and former Monsanto attorney, long in the revolving door between Monsanto and the FDA, is now head of the Food Division of the FDA. (More on cozy relationships below.)
But, why would Monsanto care about raw milk and pastured food-producing animals? Because if our food-producing animals are allowed to eat natural green grass, as they were built to do, they are not eating feed.
What is feed made of? Grains, mostly corn, soy, cottonseed, sorghum, oats, barley and beets.
So? So, all of these are GMO products. ALL of them. Do you know that GMO products are banned in other countries? Do you know that you and your kids are eating all of these products in your food and don't know it because GMO foods are not required to be labeled?
Why does Monsanto care if our food-producing animals are raised without hormones and antibiotics? Ok, that one is obvious.
Monsanto desperately needs to stop the real food assault on its bottom line and stop it NOW. They have the #1 regulatory agency in its back pocket. Who's to stop them from their evil takeover of our food choices? Just little ole you and me.
Please do these two things today, don't wait. And, if S510 passes without the amendment, which it surely will if we do nothing, there are already bills being introduced in state legislatures divorcing that state's farms and food from federal bills. Find those bills and the people working to pass them (call your local organic farmer) and support them. Go, the little people!
To learn more, go here:
My blog post On the Madness of Banning Raw Milk. There are links at the bottom to follow with excellent information, and don't miss the comments. Some very smart, informed people are involved in food freedom.
Good links and information here on S510 - search "S510" on the site! and why it must not pass.
Sponsor and co-sponsors of S510. Is your Congress person listed here? Give 'em a call and tell what you think of their meddling in your food.
More on Cozy Relationships. Like the FDA & Big Pharma:
Dr. Weil is threatened by the FDA, FTC over immune-boosting supplements which have harmed no one. (In other news, Merck is allowed to stay in business after killing at least 27,000 people with one drug.)

*Monsanto has free rein in many third world countries via "Free" trade agreements. Like CAFTA.
Btw, I scroogled "Congress schedule" wanting to know the dates it would be in session and could not find that info. Does anyone know where I find a work schedule (ROFLMAO) for this Congress?
