Are You COOL?

If you think COOL has something to do with the weather or how you or your child dresses, you are in for a big surprise.

COOL stands for Country of Origin Labeling. The USA government and industry came up with this labeling to snooker the public when it comes to food.

Do you know what snooker means? This is just an old way of telling you that someone is lying or misleading you. US manufacturers and the government do not want us – you and I – to know the truth when it comes to food. Through the COOL program, there is a misinformation campaign to keep us from knowing about all the chemicals that are fed to or injected into animals in the USA before and after death. They also don’t want you to know how toxic the soil is where plants are grown. Also, they don’t want you to know about the toxic fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides and fungicides.

There is not any place on earth that has more chemicals in their food supply than the USA and Canada. These two countries have been bought and paid for by corporate USA and the respective governments.

The official party line is that other countries use toxic chemicals and their chemicals will poison the food and the people who eat the food. This is simply not true.

Let’s take beef first in this discussion. In the USA, cattle get 6 to 8 hormones before they are slaughtered. In countries like Brazil, they get none. In the USA, they get antibiotics to try and hold down the infections while they are crowded together in a feedlot where they poop on each other everyday for about 5 months. In countries like Brazil, they get no antibiotics because they are out on a pasture eating healthy grass that builds their immune system while having the sunshine disinfect their eating and sleeping areas. In the USA, they are sometimes fed baking soda to keep them from exploding from all the gas in their guts caused by eating grains that are unhealthy and unnatural for cows to eat. In countries like Brazil, this is not necessary because they only eat healthy grass. In the USA, we dare not eat the liver of a cow because of all the abscesses caused by the unnatural grains fed in a feedlot. This is not a problem in countries like Brazil. The liver is the filtration system for mammals and if there are chemicals and diseases, like abscesses, then people should not eat the liver.

After the cow is processed in the USA, the meat is injected with a solution of water, MSG, High Fructose Corn Syrup and salt to cover up the lousy taste. This is not a problem with beef from a country like Brazil.

In the USA, the animals are fed grains that are grown on poor soil with toxic chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides. This does not happen in countries like Brazil because they use no chemicals. In the USA, the cows are fed GMO – Genetically Modified Organisms – that are toxic to the point of making the animals sterile. With the damage done to the cows, the meat also passes these toxins on to people to make them sub-fertile or sterile. This is not a problem with beef coming from countries like Brazil.

You be the judge. Do you want to eat beef from the USA or from a country like Brazil? I welcome the COOL label and if a big ole steak says Brazil and not the USA USDA, I will buy the steak from Brazil and pass on the one from the USA.

This same scenario happens with pork, chicken, vegetables and fruit. There are a few places in other countries where they use human waste for fertilizers, but our farmers are doing the same thing, although here it is called sludge. The human waste is normally composted so the risk of disease is small, but here in the USA, the sludge contains heavy metals from industry, drugs from people excreting them out of their bodies or from being poured down the drains of households or hospitals. My favorite waste that people put in their mouths is micronized toilet paper. This comes from rivers and lakes. The toilet paper used in bathrooms gets into waste water and it is impossible to filter out before it goes back into the environment. This was told by an EPA person in Orlando, Florida several years ago.

So, what are people to do since it seems like the government and corporations are against them?

Buy local food from people who you can look in the eye to see if they are lying. This applies to meat, vegetables and fruit. If you happen to see a label that is COOL and you recognize that it is USA, then try and avoid the product. If it happens to be from a country like Brazil, then buy it with confidence.

So-called third world countries are not bad as we are led to believe by our government and corporations. Remember that we have one of the poorest health care systems in the world. We rank about 50th in health in the world today. There are a whole lot of third world countries that have people with better health than we have and a lot of the reason they are healthier is because they use far less chemicals than the USA.

“Food Safety Modernization Act” or S 510

This good ole boy is not all wrong but then he is not quite right. What he says is true and our food system is in trouble, but the good news is that this new bill has not passed yet as the Senate went home for the Thanksgiving break. The vote is now thought to be on Nov 29th. We have more time to contact your Senators before they vote for this terrible bill. Listen to this You Tube recording and I hope you get mad enough to contact your senator. It is important. There will be a link on this newsletter to contact your senator.

Here is the essence of S 510 and how it came to be.

First of all, Congress, House and Senate, are not real bright and can’t think for themselves or are just plain bought off with corporate money.

We have a problem with food production in this country when it is grown for the masses by corporate “farmers”. We had little problems growing healthy food, dairy, beef, chicken, pork, grains, vegetables and fruit when we had small, caring farmers. When corporations got involved they told us that raw milk was unhealthy and it needed to be pasteurized and only corporations could do this job correctly. They told us that little farmers could not grow grains and vegetables without chemicals and massive amounts of land. They were going to feed the world. They had to raise animals in confined areas because small farmers could not do this efficiently.

Corporations do not grow food with love and thought for their consumer. They grow everything to be cheap, just like the USDA and TDA (Texas Department of Agriculture) and the Ag department in your state. There is never a thought about taste or nutrition or cleanliness. They use whatever chemicals they can find that are cheap to get plant growth and the cheapest grains for the cattle, pigs or chickens.

With crops, they wore out the soil years ago, so all the essential minerals that we need so desperately are missing in our diets, hence causing disease. Sometimes they use sludge from city sewer systems that contains massive amounts of heavy metals, drugs, micronized toilet paper, mind-altering drugs and bacteria that is not dead that can get into or on the plants that people eat. They may use animal manure with drugs and bacteria.

The outcome from these unhealthy practices can be salmonella and other live bacteria that can cause infections in people, including death. This happened in spinach and peppers about two years ago.

What is the solution for plants? Logic says clean up farming practices and grow healthy plants, but small farmers are already doing this and they are taking business away from corporations to sell to people who want to be healthy.

Corporate growers can’t lose business so they go to Congress critters and ask them to change the system. They want to get rid of those pesky little farmers so they blame the little guy for causing the outbreaks of infections, put money into campaign funds or pockets of politicians and change little except the idea of using radiation to kill the “bugs” (bacteria) in the food they produce. There is no thought about the destruction of the nutrients in the plants or lingering of radiation in the food that will cause cancer. They will tell their employees that there is no danger from sapping the food with radiation; within a few years they will be dying, but they will not care and will not be prosecuted for causing their deaths.

The same thing happens in animals as happens in plants. The chickens, pigs and cows are herded into confinement facilities and fed chemicals and foods that are genetically engineered. They poop on each other and spread disease that gets into and on the meat. This is one of the reasons food has to be overcooked in restaurants to keep you from being ill.

Radiation has been used for many years on hamburger to kill bacteria and its use is being expanded. Publix grocery stores, Schwan’s home delivery and Omaha Steaks have been using radiation for years on their hamburger. This is certain to expand to big box stores in the future.

So what is the bottom line with all this information? The government is going to take the side of corporations and “demand” (wink, wink) that they clean up the food system. They are going to legislate the farmers markets, local producers and organic sustainable farmers out of business on the premise that the public will be safe and not die in a few weeks or months. It does not matter that these policies will kill massive numbers of the people in one to ten years because it cannot be traced back to the corporations or Congress.

What do we need to do? We need a strong local system of food that is sustainable. This right may be taken away from us but we must try to stop this before it happens or with lawsuits before it is put into effect. The FDA will be the administrator of this law and we already know how they side on the side of drug corporations, doctors and hospitals as they kill hundreds of thousands of people every year.

You can contact your senators at the following link

Please take action on this matter as it is life or death – maybe your life or that of a family member or friend. We need a system of food that is healthy to make people healthy and it will never come from corporations.
