“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.

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.
