Congratulations FDA! You win my Shenanigans award because in 1994 you passed an act, which by definition, legally made a synthetic drug the ONLY type substance in the entire world capable of stating it can cure, treat, diagnosis or prevent any specific disease or health condition. REALLY?!?!
According to the FDA, "a product sold as a dietary supplement and promoted on its label or in labeling as a treatment, prevention or cure for a specific disease or condition would be considered an unapproved--and thus illegal-drug." The FDA requires supplement manufacturers to put disclaimers on their...
Would You Like To Know What You Are Eating?
You Still Have The Power To Choose & To Take Action
BUT you still have a voice. Contact your senator right now and tell them you are emphatically opposed to “The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015” (HR1599). Tell them to put people first by voting NO to this bill when in the Senate.
Contact your senators here:
Here are the NC senators:
Ann Wigmore stated, “The food you...
As of 12/15- Legislative Action is NOW Under Way To Prevent GMO Labeling and Be Blatantly Deceptive.
Still not pissed? Then keep reading…
Actions are being taken to restrict our knowledge of the food we are eating!
Right now there is a bill which has been introduced by Mike Pompeo (R-Kansas) which has passed the house and is now waiting to be voted on by the Senate.
The bill is ironically and deceptively called The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015 (HR1599) https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/house-bill/1599
Well this bill sounds great doesn’t it! I sure would...
A small step forward.
Companies can now pay to have their foods certified that they are GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) free. Read the complete article: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/05/14/usda-gmo-label_n_7284544.html
This is great step… sort of. Well at least a step in the right direction. Yes, this is a step in informing people of what they are doing…but it is still so backwards. Why do companies have to pay to be able to say their food DOES NOT have GMOs instead of requiring companies producing GMOs to list their actual ingredients? So backwards!!!
It is insane.
“I would like to order the pasta sautéed in pesticide, topped with the tomatoes genetically modified with fish genes, and a dinner roll soaked in toxic Roundup please? Mmmm... fish genes are my favorite."
There are many reasons why wheat is causing so many health disorders, and here is another. Did you know that conventional farming douses wheat with the nasty horrible pesticide, Roundup, to kill the wheat, causing it to dry out and providing farmers with an easier and quicker harvest? Yep. So when you eat wheat you are now ingesting toxic pesticides too. Mmmm, yummy. Maybe that’s...
Shennanigans!!!--- Wal-Mart, GNC, Target, and Walgreens and Most Vitamins and Supplements
Please don’t waste your money by cheap crappy supplements! Supplements are not regulated, and as a result there are TONS of companies producing complete garbage. I feel supplements are very important and can be essential in restoring and maintain health…BUT it has be quality supplements that actually work.
Last month, four of the biggest national retailers of supplements (GNC, Target, Walgreens and Wal-Mart) were busted for selling totally bogus worthless supplements! These companies were issued...
Shennanigans!!!--- The Flu Vaccine
The Flu Shot. Ever read the insert? If not, now is your chance. In the event this image is unclear, some of the really special highlights include:
"..there have been no controlled trials adequately demonstrating a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with FLULAVAL."
"Safety and effectiveness of FLULAVAL in pediatric patients have not been established."
"Thimerosal, a mercury derivative, is added as a preservative."
"FLULAVAL has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential, or impairment of fertility...
Shennanigans!!!--- And perhaps the most PATHETIC of all time!!
That's right ladies and gentlemen, you know it, you love it....it’s time for another fun edition of "Shennanigans!!!"
Have you all see the inspiring "Mixify" commercial sponsored by the American Beverage Association, Coca-Cola, Dr. Pepper and Pepsi? Well if not, I am surprised because it has been airing way too much on TV and has flooded the internet.
Because these companies deeply care for the youth of America, they have put together a commercial about the importance of finding a health balance between all the essentials...
Vitaminwater (a popular drink sold with soft drinks) is currently involved in lawsuit brought on by a Washington (D.C.)-based consumer advocacy group, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI). The lawsuit was filed claiming the manufactures of Vitaminwater, Coca-Cola, practiced "deceptive labeling and marketing for the soft drink, which included claims that the drink could reduce rise for eye disease, promote healthy joints and support 'optimal immune function.'" Vitaminwater also labeled these drinks with words including "defense," "rescue," and "endurance".
Here is where it gets...
