Victory!! Monsanto’s DARK Act (Barely) Blocked By Senate

The efforts of millions of concerned citizens, numerous phone and email campaigns, dozens of online petitions, and trips to D.C. to lobby for our right to know were not in vain.

Leading the charge today, Senator Jeff Merkely demolished the pro-industry talking points that many of our senators lean on in order to further their agenda. The Senate blocked Senator Pat Robert’s cloture, 48-49, that would have allowed for the advancement of a bill to deny Americans the right to know what is in the food that lines our store shelves.

 

“Do not crush state’s rights, do not steal consumer’s right to know, and try to do it in the dark of night while the nation is distracted by major primaries. It is wrong on policy, it’s wrong on process, and it’s an injustice to every citizen in our nation,” proclaimed Senator Merkley.

 

While today is a huge victory for the safe food movement and consumers everywhere, a dark cloud does hang over the vote as nearly half of our senators voted in favor of the bill rather than against it. The required 60 votes needs to move the cloture forward did not happen, so despite a corrupt attempt by nearly half of the Senate body, the bill was blocked.

Nearly 100% of Americans are in favor of a mandatory, on-package labeling standard, yet our elected officials are far more concerned with campaign finance money they are receiving from biotech and big food corporations. According to the FEC website, this week alone hundreds of thousands of dollars have been pumped into senate re-election campaigns. GMO labeling is a right afforded to citizens in over 60 countries, including Russia and China. In fact, numerous countries are making moves to ban GMOs, while our government officials are making every nefarious stride to ban GMO labeling.

I must commend Sen. Jeff Merkley’s courageous speech on the Senate floor today. He is a beacon of hope in a cesspool of biotech-loving scum. Senator Merkley called out the sham proposals offered by his associates which include a 1-800 number, QR codes, and social media investigating in order to obtain information on the food that lines our shelves. Calling it a “house of mirrors”, Merkley implored his fellow senators to honor the ‘one second test’ demanded by 9 out of 10 Americans. This ‘test’ would simply require a symbol or a few words to be mandated on food packaging so the average consumer can quickly determine if an item contains GM ingredients.

Senator Merkley went on to question his fellow senators, “Why is this bill before us? I ask you, why a bill that say the interests of a few titans in crushing a state laboratory are more important than the views of 90% of Americans?”

We must flex our muscle and show our politicians, as well as unethical corporations, that we the people have the power. Remember how your senator voted in November. It is time to clean house and get rid of career politicians who cashed in their morals long ago. Continue to vote with your wallets. Clearly, this is where our strength lies. They can take away our rights, but they cannot force us to buy toxic, chemical-laden products. Vote wisely with your dollars. Do not support companies who pump millions into denying our right to know.

This fight is far from over.

How Monsanto’s Roundup, Vaccines Converge to Fuel Autism, Neurological Diseases: Holistic Doctor Explains

With cases of autism and many other diseases on the rise in the United States, the holistic health community has begun a lengthy search for answers.

A recent presentation of data from MIT Research Stephanie Seneff warning that half of U.S. children will be autistic by the year 2025 showed a correlation between the increased use of glyphosate (the active ingredient in the Monsanto weedkiller Roundup) and rising autism rates, and has made waves throughout the community and beyond. 

Correlation doesn’t equal causation, but Seneff’s statistics are just one of many red flags that something is amiss.

Synergistic Destruction – How Vaccines and GMOs Converge to Fuel Disease

In the latest blog post for KINSEI, a center for mind/body balance, Dr. Matthew Buckley presents his research and theories for how a process known as microglial activation can be triggered by overconsumption of chemical residues found on GMO crops such as corn, soy, canola and sugar beets as well as wheat that is doused in Monsanto’s Roundup, and other foods.

Microglial activation is a leading factor in all neurodegenerative-related health problems, including autism, Alzheimer’s, ALS, Parkinson’s, non-situational depression, and virtually all forms of chronic illness.

In addition to this contribution to the deterioration of our health from Roundup, vaccines may also play a role and combine synergistically with Roundup leading to devastating health effects. 

According to Dr. Buckley’s post, “all vaccines induce some pro-inflammatory cytokine response, and are potential triggers for microglial activation…”

Leaky gut, another condition that has been linked to overconsumption Monsanto’s chemicals, is also part of a common thread that ties many of these illnesses together.

Zapped! Irradiation and The Death of Food

Whether poultry, meat, fruit or vegetable, food around the world is being exposed to high doses of radiation under the veil of protecting consumers from foodborne illness. *Zapped! Irradiation and the Death of Food*, a new book by Food & Water Watch Executive Director Wenonah Hauter and researcher Mark Worth, explores why this process, known as food irradiation, poses numerous health risks to consumers and ignores the fundamental problems plaguing food production systems.
