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.

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.

Japanese Radiation: How will it affect the USA?


The news media has been going nuts for the last week reporting on the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. This has been and still is a horrific event in the annals of history. In fact, there have been a lot of natural disasters all around the globe in the last few months. It kind of makes you think that there might be earth changes coming in 2012, as has been predicted for so many years. This may or may not be the case.

The thing that makes this natural disaster so significant is the fracture and/or melt down of the nuclear reactor at the Fukushima power plant. At first, the news was speculating about all kinds of radiation and what it might do to the people of Japan, the USA and the rest of the world. I suspect that most of the information was not truthful to keep from scaring the people into panic.

One report was that the radiation leak was minor and if the people stayed in their homes, they would be safe. I found this story to be a little too farfetched. As of now, the situation seems desperate in Japan, with a confirmation coming this morning that the food near the Fukushima power plant is now radioactive. I don’t think this comes as a big surprise.

The official government explanation about radiation exposure in Japan is an insult to one’s intelligence. A few days ago, they said things like “the amount of radiation people are experiencing is only equal to that of a chest X-ray.” They now are comparing their exposure to “the amount of radiation you might get from a CT scan.” What they don’t tell you is that a CT scan emits up to 600 times more radiation than a chest X-ray.

What’s the next report coming out on this disaster? Are they going to announce that people are only exposed to “the same amount of radiation as amiss-calibrated mammogram?” Mammograms cause cancer, even if it is calibrated correctly, so this will be a bad comparison. The other problem in Japan is that the radiation is continuous, not intermittent with a flick of a button.

The truth is that a lot of misinformation is being disseminated by the Japanese and US governments. It seems to me that the truth would be in order, but Obama announced that there was nothing to worry about. I don’t think we should panic, but there are some things that would be prudent to consider.

The main worry is that the reactors are melting down and putting water on them is not working. There have been some suggestions that covering them with concrete would solve the problem. Whatever the truth is, I think we should be prepared.

We know the prevailing winds in the world go from west to east. This also is what is considered the Jet stream. While the exact amount of radiation coming to the USA can’t be determined, just as sure as God made little green apples (according to an old song), there is radiation coming to the west coast of the USA and then going east. This time of the year the Jet stream is general to the north and not dipping down into the south; also, the prevailing winds in Texas and the southern states are coming from the Gulf of Mexico and going north, so there is little danger of radiation poisoning in this area. This is not true for the upper Midwest and the northern states.

It is safe to assume that some people in the USA are going to be exposed to some radiation. What can we do to protect the people and animals – food producing animals?

During the Chernobyl disaster, the Russians shipped boron into the area by truck. The drivers volunteered for what they thought might be their last endeavor on earth due to the radiation. On their trip, they had to fuel up, stop for food and something to drink and to sleep most likely. They were around their trucks and they had the opportunity to breathe some of the boron dust. Much to everyone’s surprise the drivers did not develop any symptoms of radiation poisoning. Not only that, but the people exposed to the radiation in the Chernobyl had far fewer symptoms of radiation poisoning than anyone predicted.

Because of this, I would recommend everyone get some boron tablets and keep them on hand.

There is also solid evidence that potassium iodine helps prevent radiation poisoning. On the other hand, most thyroid disease is due to people, particularly women, not getting enough iodine in their diets, so a little extra potassium iodine can’t hurt as long as it is not an overdose.

There is also a special brown kelp that comes from an area of the ocean north of Japan that helps to detoxify radiation and other heavy metals like mercury and lead from the systems of people. The bad news is that they have sold out of the product.

One of the problems with cattle is that they also do not get enough iodine and have many diseases that are glandular in nature. Supplementing iodine is good for the cow’s good health. I ordered their iodine before the nuclear disaster so I will dissolve the iodine compound in their water troughs.

Most of you have not heard of this before, but a friend of mine has developed a product out of humates and he allows me to re-label the product under my label. The humate product has recently been approved in Mexico as an anti-viral, anti-cancer and anti-osteoporosis source. The US and Canada approvals will be forthcoming because of the NAFTA law between these three nations. Meanwhile, this product is and always will be available as an over-the-counter supplement. The interesting fact about this supplement is that it also detoxifies and prevents radiation poisoning. I have the product and I sell it under the name of Humates FP.

So, what are some of the complications of radiation? I think the truth is that we don’t know a lot about it.

There is no doubt that mammograms cause breast cancer from radiation, but the other factor is that when they squeeze the breast tissue, if there are cancer cells present, they are spread to surrounding tissue and the cancer gets worse quicker. The reason that doctors and the Susan G Komen foundation don’t tell women this is because of the billions of dollars they make. Integrity is not something these people care about. There is a heat-measuring device, thermography, which is perfectly safe and has almost no false positives – surgery when it is not needed).

We know that the USA exploded two atomic bombs in Japan that ended WW2 in Japan and the bombs actually melted people and buildings. Very few people survived the immediate area around ground zero and those that did had serious burns and complications of radiation. What is surprising is that the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki have come out of the ashes and are thriving, growing cities with few problems from the radiation that occurred in 1945.

After WW2, the USA took Japanese ships and US ships that were obsolete and anchored them off the coast of the Bikini Atoll. They used various atomic bombs to try and sink the ships. Some of the bombs were exploded underwater and some above the water. There were serious questions about whether the sailors watching these explosions would suffer from radiation poisoning. I had a friend who was there for the explosions and neither he nor any of his shipmates had any health issue after the war and they had normal children.

So what should we do? I think it would be prudent to stop eating any food – produce and fruit from California – until we know if there is a real danger. There will be radiation fallout on the west coast of the US.

How much radiation will get east of the west coast is unknown.

I would suggest having potassium iodine and/or boron in your cabinets to take just in case.

Don’t believe the government, as they will lie and make the media report what the government wants you to know. Look for independent reporting sources that you can trust, like this newsletter.
