The Food Safety Modernization Act – Dead Food Bill

Senate bill S 510 may be dead. Harry Reid, senator from Nevada, says this bill cannot be stopped, but the senate made a big mistake in its funding that has to be done by the house, according to the law. It seems to me that they will have to rewrite the bill and vote on it again or let it die. This lame duck Congress is about to go home for the holidays, so this bill S 510 may have to be addressed by the new Congress.

We can hope that this really bad bill will just go away. The following ten points will explain why this is a bad law for the people of the US. I got these points from Mike Adams, The Health Ranger, at Natural News. I am using Mike’s ten points but have modified them because I have different issues on some items.

Lie #1 – Most deaths from food poisoning are caused by fresh produce

Here’s one whopper of a lie the mainstream media won’t dare report: Out of the 1,809 people who die in the USA every year from food-borne pathogens (CDC estimate), only a fraction die from the manufacturer’s contamination of fresh produce. By far the majority of food poisoning is caused by the consumption of spoiled processed foods, dead foods and animal-human transmission of pathogens.

In terms of food-borne illness, many of the deaths come from things like spoiled tomato sauce, spoiled canned foods and spoiled pasteurized milk. S 510, of course, does absolutely nothing to address these food contamination deaths, since those foods are considered “sterilized” at the time of sale.

Lie #2 – Under S.510, the FDA would only recall products it knows to be contaminated

Not true. S.510 merely requires the FDA to have “reason to believe” a food is contaminated. So right there, that means all raw milk will be targeted by the FDA because even without conducting any scientific tests at all, the FDA can say it has “reason to believe” the milk is contaminated merely because it is raw.

In other words, the FDA no longer needs science to outlaw a food product. It merely needs an opinion. This seems to be a violation of an individual’s right to a day in court.

Lie #3 – They didn’t tell you that nearly 70% of grocery store chickens are contaminated with salmonella every day

Yep, it’s true: Amid all the fear-mongering over salmonella, everybody forgot to notice that the vast majority of fresh chickens sold at grocery stores every single day are widely contaminated with salmonella. Yet S 510 does absolutely nothing to address this. It’s not even mentioned in the bill.

Joel Salatin in VA was under pressure not to process chickens under a roof but with open sides that allowed sunshine to help sterilize the work area. He decided to do a study. He took cultures of his birds and cultures from chickens at local grocery stores. His birds had almost no salmonella while the grocery store birds had millions of salmonella bacteria in the culture count.

Lie #4 – S.510 will exclude and protect small farmers

The Tester Amendment, which was finally included in S.510, excludes farmers who sell less than $500,000 worth of food each year from the more onerous paperwork and compliance burdens described in the bill. But this dollar amount is not indexed to inflation, meaning that as the U.S. dollar continues to lose value due to the Federal Reserve counterfeiting machine running at full speed (more “quantitative easing,” anyone?), food prices will continue to skyrocket — and this will shift even small family farms into the $500,000 sales range within just a few years.

The main idea of S 510 was to get rid of small family farms that compete for dollars from food manufacturing corporations. This amendment does little to protect family farms.

Lie #5 – The FDA needs more power to enforce food safety

The FDA already has the power to effectively recall foods by publicly announcing a product has been found to be contaminated. The FDA already has the power to confiscate “misbranded” products, too, and it could easily use this power to halt the sale of contaminated food items. There is no need to expend the powers of the FDA.

 

Lie #6 – Fresh produce is contaminated because of a lack of paperwork

There is no evidence that requiring farms to fill out more paperwork will make their food safer. The real cause of produce contamination is the existence of factory animal farms (CAFO) whose effluent output (huge rivers of cow, pig and chicken feces, basically), end up in the water supply, soils and equipment that come into contact with fresh produce.

Lie #7 – The American people are dying in droves from unsafe fresh food

The truth is that Americans are dying from processed food laced with toxic chemical additives, not from fresh, raw produce. Partially-hydrogenated oils, white sugar, aspartame, MSG and artificial food colors almost certainly kill far more people than bacterial contaminations.

The American public is also dying from pharmaceuticals — anywhere from 100,000 to 240,000 people a year are killed by FDA-approved drugs), most of which have been approved under the guise of blatantly fraudulent science and drug company trickery. The FDA doesn’t seem to mind. In fact, it has been a willful co-conspirator in the scientific fraud carried out by Big Pharma in the name of “medicine.”

Lie #8 – The FDA just wants to make food “safer”

Actually, the FDA wants to make the food more DEAD. Both the FDA and the USDA are vocal opponents of live food. They think that the only safe food is sterilized food, which is why they’ve supported the fumigation, pasteurization and irradiation efforts that have been pushed over the last few years.

Lie #9 – Food smuggling is a huge problem in America

One of the main sections of S.510 addresses “food smuggling.” Yep — people smuggling food across the country. If you’ve never heard of this problem that’s because it’s not actually a problem. If the government outlaws healthy local food, then you will see people smuggling food all over the USA.

Lie #10 – S.510 will make America’s food supply the safest in the world

The truth is that USA and Canadian food is the most contaminated chemicalized food in the world (except China) and S 510 will only make it worse. The more small local healthy food is outlawed, the worse the food supply will become and the more disease will increase. The truth is that today the biggest economic growth area in the USA is health care (instead of high tech exportable products). To keep the “ball rolling, so to speak, we need more disease. Poor quality food creates more business for drug corporations.

To be healthy we need locally grown organic foods.

Why are Doctors killing us?

 

I had a pharmacist in the office yesterday and we discussed what is wrong with health care and what is wrong with the Obama “Sick Care” plan. Some will agree with these ideas and some will not care, but most will agree that the whole system is sick and most likely will not be improved until the whole system breaks the government economically. After the collapse, and possibly violence, we may get a new system that will actually help the people.

We are a country of extremes. When something gets bad, the people get up in arms and the powers-that-be make adjustments. The public does not think the government would allow any corporation to harm them, so if something unhealthy happens, the public expects the government to solve the problem.

I hope I am getting your attention because there is something wrong – your health – and at this time your government doesn’t care and your doctors don’t have time to care.

The single biggest cause of poor health and disease today is sugar and high fructose corn syrup. They are causing heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, cancer, cholesterol, triglycerides and degenerative diseases.

When a patient goes into his or her doctor and the doctor says you are pre-diabetic or diabetic and if you follow the instructions that he or she or a dietician give you, you can lead a normal life (they do not say at this time that sugar, HFCS and diabetes alone will shorten your life by 9 to 20 years). You must come back regularly and follow a diabetic diet and take these medications. They don’t mention that, after years of the pills and continued eating of sugars and HFCS, the diabetes will probably get worse and you will need to give yourself a shot of insulin one to two times per day for the rest of your life. They also do not mention that if heart disease is not present at this time it will be shortly after the diabetes starts.

Your doctor will not be callous at this time and thank you for the money you are going to put into his or her pocket, but he or she knows that you are going to be responsible for paying over $300,000 before you die. This money will pay for office expenses, but a lot of this will go to the new BMW’s every couple of years, the doctor’s kids’ new cars and, of course, the doctor’s $750,000.00 house will be in the best of neighborhoods.

 Doctors are not stupid or they would never have made it through medical school, internship or residency. I also venture to say that most doctors really do care, but the problem is time and money.

When you show up with pre-diabetes, doctors know that, at this juncture, it is possible to change your life and prevent becoming a diabetic.  Unfortunately, they also know most people don’t give a hoot and will not change their life style. With this in mind, the doctors are not going to waste their time telling you to stop eating sugar and HFCS (I know this is over simplified but it is still true).

The most important issue is that even if the doctor cares and tries to advise the patient to do the right thing, the doctor is not getting paid to give you good advice. They can’t pay the bills advising people to do the right thing (this applies to heart disease, cancer and every other disease) and so the easy way out is to give you the diet, the prescription and tell you to return in a few weeks to check your blood sugar level and adjust your medications. In the case of heart disease and cancer, they get you into surgery and post-op treatment.

Hopefully, you are asking how we can fix this problem, but the problem is that no one wants to fix it because everyone is making massive amounts of money and as long as the cash cow – our government – is willing to pay, the system will never change.

Fortunately or unfortunately, the day of reckoning is coming soon.

The amount of people with diabetes, the new diabetics from the baby boomers and now the children with diabetes is going to break the government “bank”. There is no way the government can continue to tax the people for diseases that are preventable, empire building in other nations with our military and giving foreign aid to countries that is spent on the lavish lifestyles of their leaders. There is a point coming soon that the people will rebel and refuse to pay more taxes.

Health care has got to change to real prevention and not lip service to prevention. Medicine/drug corporations try to make the public believe that keeping you from dying quickly while prescribing massive amounts of expensive drugs is prevention. Unfortunately, the government (politicians who are bought off by Big Pharma) has bought this misguided health care system hook, line and sinker. (I just could not stop myself from using the fishing term.)

What can we do to change the coming disaster? Make no mistake – the system will fall apart before it gets better.

You have to decide if you want to help yourself before the collapse or wait for the government to try and fix the problem; however, you may be dead before there is substantial change.

  • Demand that agriculture change from chemicals to sustaining practices. We know that there is too much money being made by corporations to change, so you have to take responsibility for yourself and your family.
  • Doctors must be paid for preventing disease and penalized monetarily for “sick-care medicine”.
  • We have to stop “food” manufacturers from deceiving the people with toxic ingredients like HFCS, sugar, MSG, Equal and hydrolyzed vegetable proteins. If you want to avoid early death, you will have to take care of yourself and your family as food changes will not happen until after the collapse of “sick care.”

Your future and longevity at this time depends on you and how willing you are to help yourself and your family. I would like to think that there will be no disaster or collapse, but we are on a collision course and I don’t believe anything will stop it. Diabetes will trigger the change.

I don’t believe doctors are killing us on purpose or that they are altogether uncaring, but the system is rigged against them and us, the people. Ralph Nader and Sydney Wolfe, MD group estimate that doctors, nurses, hospitals and drug corporations kill 400,000 people a year and disable another 400,000 people each year.

Should we tolerate this or just write off the fact that millions of people are dying before their time. Are you going to be one of these early deaths that also run out of money before the end and have to live in poverty?
