A Farmer’s Responsibility to the People Who Eat His or Her Food By Greg Willis

This is a very good friend whom I respect as being one of the best people in the healthy agriculture movement today. I hope you enjoy this letter as much as I have and that, in the future, you will remember that farmers owe us healthy food to sustain our bodies and minds and our current agriculture system is destroying the people. We must put pressure on the farming community, the FDA and USDA to change their evil ways.

Dr Bob

I’ve been thinking about a lot of things lately, prior to going into the hospital to get the first of two new hip replacements.

One question that came to mind is this: Even though the chances of not surviving this kind of operation are around 5 in 100,000 – astronomical odds, really, I asked myself, “If I knew I was going to die tomorrow, what would I say is the most important lesson I’ve learned about Nature?”

It turns out that to me at least, it is the realization that everything there is has a role to play in Nature.  But specifically, I think the most important realization of all these last 45 years of gardening and agriculture is the deeply, deeply spiritual role of the farmer in the world.

I have striven mightily to awaken or reawaken this realization and how important farmers, gardeners and everyone in the food business are to the world.

Steiner said that when there isn’t sufficient spiritual nutrition in our food, we become mentally clumsy, but worse, we lose our Free Will, our thinking is confused and, by extension, it would eventually lead to mass starvation and the demise of Mankind.

We all have a body, a physical body and a soul, our spiritual body that cannot die.  Our physical bodies need physical nutrition to be healthy. Our souls require spiritual nutrition to stay healthy and be able to pierce Maya, the Veil of Delusion, that separates us on Earth from the deeper spiritual realities of the Universe, the Cosmos, Creation, and worse still, separates us from our Divine Creator making the lessons of Unconditional Love, seeing Spirit in all things and all things in Spirit and Self-Realization or the realization that each of us in our souls are a perfect reflection of the Divine, much more difficult to learn.

What I’ve learned over the years and I wish to pass on, is that it is the role of farmers and gardeners, for themselves and others, to grow the most spiritually and physically nutritious food that can possibly be grown.

This is a deeply, deeply spiritual role to play, perhaps one of the most sacred roles of all Mankind and even out into the Universe.  For a farmer to grow food with less than the highest attainable spiritual nutrition deprives all Humanity of that Spiritual Essence of Life, call it Chi, the Breath of Life, the Life Force Current, Prana, Ki or Mana – all words given to this force that animates and informs all life with health, insights and wisdom, even, in the end, Bliss.

The role of the farmer, the spiritual role, is the most sacred of them all for held in their hands is the destiny of Humanity on Earth.

This is a very, very serious responsibility.

I’ve also learned that food grown with chemicals, poisons and to a great extent, genetically engineered, if the intent of the genetic engineering is greed, to make people dependent on the GE company and their seeds and chemicals, at the expense of others and the environment, depletes, or, in some cases, all but eliminates the influx of this Life Force into our foods, the food for our animals, wild animals and even for other plants as they feed off the nutrition of dead plants as humus.

A farmer voluntarily elects to be a farmer.  No one forces them to be a farmer, at least in most cases.  We all have Free Will.  We can opt out at any time.  So this is a voluntary choice, to be a farmer, or grow food for ourselves and our families.  If you believe in reincarnation, you could also extend that to say that a soul picked a family into which to be born that was a farming family to experience this amazing gift – the gift of having the ability to grow food for the benefit of others.

So if asked, I would say that of all the massive amount of insights I’ve received in my life with regard to agriculture, gardening and food in general, this is, in the end, the most important.

Farmers have a deep spiritual responsibility to grow food, especially when it is for others, to be the best they can be and to grow the most nutritious physically and spiritually enriched food.  In that way, that farmer or gardener lives a life of service to Mankind.

“What you think, you grow.”  I’ve said that thousands of times.  Then, as I see it, it is the deep responsibility of farmers, gardeners, horticulturists, ranchers and everyone associated with our food production from start to finish, seeking out the best ways to grow food.

The current paradigm, as most of you know I’ve talked about endlessly, is to kill everything that competes with our crops and eat whatever is left.  This destroys the Life Force in our plants, our soul food.

There is a better way and that is to discover the root causes for plant diseases and pests, low yields and low quality and all the other problems plaguing agriculture.  Agriculture needs to change their practices to do better.  All the information is available.  There is no need to spray pesticides, for example, if you just realize that by increasing the Brix levels in your crop, most if not all of the pests will die or drop off in one to three days.  That’s what BrixUp™ does.  No poisons.  No chemicals.  No GMOs.  Just LOVE.  In a bottle.

And that, then my dear friends, is the basis for all farming.  Love.  And respect for Nature which is Spirit in its infinity of combinations and expressions of Spirit.

A farmer or gardener cannot do battle with Nature and expect to create the highest levels of physical and spiritual nutrition.  It just doesn’t happen.

 

So that gets me back to the original question.  If there is one thing I would like to teach people in this world, it is to Love God and to view their role as farmers, gardeners, ranchers and horticulturists as a freely chosen, deeply, deeply spiritual undertaking that effects like no other job the highest calling, the highest Truth and the greatest Love for all of Mankind, all living things, as Individualized Expressions of Spirit, and the most profound love of the Divine Creator of All.

Hallelujah: The End May Be Near (I don’t mean the end of Time in Christian Sense)

Monsanto, the world’s most evil corporation, is in financial trouble. This is great news. In fact, the only way this could be better news is if Monsanto went broke and closed its doors.

My first experience with Monsanto was with Vietnam veterans. We had a friend in our church, Barry, who was young by today’s standards. He was about 55 to 60 years old and retired from the US Army. Shortly after we met him and his wife, Barry started missing church on some Sundays. His wife informed us that he had Parkinson’s disease. Barry went downhill fast and it was not long before he died.

On inquiring about his past, I found out that he was one of thousands of Vietnam veterans who had been exposed to Agent Orange, the defoliant that was used during the war to destroy the jungles of Southeast Asia so that the North Vietnamese might be more visible to our soldiers.

Agent Orange was manufactured by Monsanto.

After the war, the reports of poor health from Agent Orange began to surface. Diabetes was a common side effect along with cancer and Parkinson’s disease. Monsanto denied these claims, but as time has gone on, the obvious became even more obvious.

Today, 50 % of the soldiers exposed to Agent Orange have diabetes and the numbers of cancers and Parkinson is immeasurable. The number of birth defects in adults and children in Vietnam is beyond counting. I have a patient whose father was exposed to Agent Orange during the war and when he came home he married and had 4 children. The children are all in their twenties and early thirties and, at this time, all four have been treated for four different types of cancer. Who knows what they will have as they get to their forties and beyond.

All this being said, with statistical proof, Monsanto still denies it and our government covers their lies to protect them from lawsuits. In my mind, this is not right.

Fast forward from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s to the nineties and let’s talk about life forms that are not natural. I am referring to GMO’s – Genetically Engineered Organisms, or as some call them, Franken Foods.

Monsanto took plants and introduced a gene that was not natural for the plants to make them do something that was beneficial for the corporation but not to people or to the plants. The driving force was to patent the new GMO plants so farmers could not save seeds without patent infringements and so the farmers would have to use more of Monsanto chemicals to eliminate weeds without killing the plants. Their goal was to control the world’s food supply so that they would have a monopoly on chemicals and seeds and control the world’s population.

These plants were never tested for safety or health of the environment, animals, plants or that of people. Hitler tried to control the world through violence with war. Monsanto’s goal was to control the people of the world without ever firing a shot.

The following paragraphs came from the New York Times:

According to the New York Times, weeds are becoming immune to Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup, and its latest genetically modified, 8-gene corn is a flop, producing yields no higher than the company’s less expensive corn, which contains only three foreign genes.

“Monsanto has already been forced to sharply cut prices on SmartStax and on its newest soybean seeds, called Roundup Ready 2 Yield, as sales fell below projections,” the Times said. “And the Justice Department is investigating Monsanto for possible antitrust violations.”

“Until now, Monsanto’s main challenge has come from opponents of genetically modified crops, who have slowed their adoption in Europe and some other regions. Now, however, the skeptics also include farmers and investors who were once in Monsanto’s camp.”

Besides what I reported above, here are other things Monsanto has done in 20 years or so that qualifies them as evil.

  • Suing small farmers for patent infringement after Monsanto’s GM seeds spread wildly into surrounding farmers’ fields, contaminating their conventional crops
  • Secretly discharging PCB-laden toxic waste into an Alabama creek and dumping millions of pounds of PCBs into open-pit landfills for decades after PCBs were banned in the US for being a possible carcinogen.
  • Being found guilty of bribery to bypass Indonesian law requiring an environmental assessment review for its genetically engineered cotton.
  • Last year, the supreme court of France found Monsanto guilty of falsely advertising its herbicide Roundup as “biodegradable” and “environmentally friendly.” Scientific evaluation discovered that glyphosate, the active ingredient in RoundUp, is acutely toxic to fish and birds and can kill beneficial insects and soil organisms that maintain ecological balance. Additionally, the surfactant ingredient in Roundup is more acutely toxic than glyphosate itself, and the combination of the two is even more toxic.
  • In 2007, the South African Advertising Standards Authority also found Monsanto guilty of lying when advertising that “no negative reactions to Genetically Modified food have been reported.”
  • According to one EPA scientist, Monsanto doctored studies and covered-up dioxin contamination of a wide range of its products. She concluded that the company’s behavior constituted “a long pattern of fraud.”
  • In 1999, the New York Times exposed that Monsanto’s PR firm, BursonMarsteller, had paid fake “pro-GMO” food demonstrators to counteract a group of anti-biotech protesters outside a Washington, DC FDA meeting.
  • This does not include the deception that got Indian farmers into debt they could not pay back when yields failed to come close to Monsanto sales predictions. Hundreds of these Indian farmers committed suicide because they could not pay their debts.

Monsanto has “friends” in high places. Clarence Thomas, on our Supreme Court, did work for them before becoming a Justice. He contributed to Monsanto when they wanted to get their food genes patented.

Michael Taylor, a former vice president of public policy and chief lobbyist at Monsanto Company, is the deputy commissioner for foods at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Who is Michael Taylor? He is the person who “oversaw the creation of GMO policy,” according to Jeffrey Smith, the leading spokesperson on the dangers of GM foods. Smith continues:

“If GMOs are indeed responsible for massive sickness and death, then the individual who oversaw the FDA policy that facilitated their introduction holds a uniquely infamous role in human history. That person is Michael Taylor. He had been Monsanto’s attorney before becoming policy chief at the FDA. Soon after, he became Monsanto’s vice president and chief lobbyist.”

Also, former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack, now the Secretary of Agriculture, is widely regarded as a shill for biotech giants like Monsanto (he even reportedly often travels in Monsanto’s jet). There are other less noticeable connections too, such as Sharon Long, a former member of Monsanto’s board of directors who was part of Obama’s scientific advisory team during the election/campaign.

Now that Monsanto is having financial problems and legal battles from governments, farmers and the public, let’s get behind Jeffery Smith’s campaign to get the general public to complain to grocery stores that they do not want to eat GMO foods that is causing fertility problems, cancer and allergies.

Go to http://www.firstgiving.com/instituteforresponsibletechnology and donate money if you can. If you can’t give money, you can contribute in other ways from this site.

Also download the following site http://mercola.fileburst.com/PDF/GMObrochure.pdf so that you can vote with your dollars by avoiding GMO foods and give this pamphlet to 20 other people. Everyone who is eating organic, partially or fully, will be interested in this pamphlet that will improve their health and the health of their families.

Remember that hurting Monsanto and the other smaller corporations like them is great for the health and well being of the US and Canada.

Also remember to buy local food as much as possible and unprocessed. The only sugar that is safe (well not too safe) is labeled “Pure Cane Sugar”. Any other sugar is from GMO sugar beets or High Fructose Corn Syrup. They are toxic and unhealthy.

Let’s get rid of GMO’s, Genetically Modified Organisms – Franken Foods

Genetically Modified Organisms are dangerous to your health.

Please watch this video and pass it on to your friends and relatives. Please help this go viral. Please respond to this like your life depends on this – because GMO’s are that serious and your life and that of your kids and grandkids does depend on you taking action.

The following is an interview between Jeffery Smith and Dr Mercola.

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/10/09/jeff-smith-interview-gmo-week.aspx

10-10-10 has started. This is the start of informing people and convincing them that their dollars count when “voting” for healthy food.

The people in Europe did this about 10 years ago. They told food manufacturers, agriculture corporations and their governments that they did not want to eat GMO’s- Genetically Engineered organisms, GE -genetically engineered, or Frankenfoods. And they still don’t have GMO’s even though our government has tried to force them into eating and accepting GMO’s/ Frankenfoods.

It is time to speak up and tell Walmart, Kroger, Randall’s, HEB, Albertson’s, Publix and all the other grocery stores that you don’t want to eat unhealthy food any longer. Tell them that GMO’s are causing sterility and allergies in horses, dogs and cats. GMO’s are causing allergies that doctors have never seen before in people. Tell them that you don’t want the risk that you, your kids and your grandchildren may be sterile or have low fertility. How many men and women go to fertility clinics today because they cannot get pregnant? How many are this way because of GMO’s?

Tell these stores that you don’t want to eat beef, pork or chicken that has been fed GMO’s because these modified genes can cause people to become unhealthy when they eat the genes in the animals and or plants.

Tell them that you don’t want corn, soy, canola, cotton seed oil, sugar beets, crooked neck squash, papaya from Hawaii. All these plants are GMO.

10-10-10 is significant because this is the kick off from Jeffery Smith and the “Seeds of Deception” to get 15,000,000 people to reach the tipping point on the non-GMO band wagon. We have 11 months to get the job done. Our goal is no GMO food in stores by 11-11-11.

There is already a certification process that guarantees food on shelves is non-GMO. Look for the label in health food stores but let’s push it into all grocery stores.

Please take action. Get involved. It is important for the rest of our lives.

To Your Good Health
