In my last newsletter was an article on the political connections (corruptions) between Monsanto and key players in the government, regulatory agencies, and testing agencies.  As a result, I received several emails requesting more information on this topic. Thank you for those of you that have read this important information and want to learn more. Does it seem right that a Monsanto lobbyist who heads up Monsanto's Washington DC branch also serves as a Deputy Commissioner on the FDA and as senior advisor to the FDA? Is there any problem with Monanto's VP of Public Affairs also serving as a...
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...
Could too much sugar be deadly? The biggest study of its kind suggests the answer is  YES, at least when it comes to fatal heart problems. It doesn't take all that much extra sugar, hidden in many processed foods, to \substantially raise the risk, the researchers found, and most Americans eat more than the  safest amount.

That means your chance of dying prematurely from heart problems is nearly three  times greater...

This number is generated by comparing a wide variety of factors including micronutrients, fiber, vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and antioxidant quantities. The higher the number the higher the nutritional value.  So much food today is high in calories but very low in nutrients. As a result, so many people are obese and over fed, yet at the same time, nutritionally starving. By eating foods higher on the ANDI you are providing your body with the nutrition it needs to combat disease,...
Take a moment to imagine the following: A company with a long history of questionable practices earns millions by selling a highly toxic pesticide. The company creates genetically modified seeds to be less influenced by this highly toxic pesticide. The company donates millions of dollars to powerful “friends” in the government and regulatory agencies. These “friends” in the government allow these genetically modified seed to be a patented.  This is the first time in history “life” becomes property and nature is patented.   These genetically modified seeds are altered to be sterile so they are...
