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.

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

Genetically Modified Soy Linked to Sterility, Infant Mortality

You may wonder what a Russian biologist and hamsters have to do with you and your family, but after you read this, I suspect you will want to change your diet and stop eating any Genetically Engineered foods that are in almost all processed foods in the USA.

 Russian biologist Alexey V. Surov discovered what could end up as the discovery of this century. Surov and his colleagues set out to discover if Monsanto’s genetically modified (GM) soy, grown on 91% of US soybean fields, leads to problems in growth or reproduction. What he discovered may uproot a multi-billion dollar industry.

After feeding hamsters for two years over three generations, those on the GM diet, and especially the group on the maximum GM soy diet, showed devastating results. By the third generation, most GM soy-fed hamsters had lost the ability to have babies. They also suffered slower growth and a high mortality rate among the pups.

And if this isn’t shocking enough, some in the third generation even had hair growing inside their mouths—a phenomenon rarely seen, but apparently more prevalent among hamsters eating GM soy.

The study, jointly conducted by Surov’s Institute of Ecology and Evolution of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the National Association for Gene Security, is expected to be published in three months (July 2010)—so the technical details will have to wait.

“Originally, everything went smoothly. However, we noticed quite a serious effect when we selected new pairs from their cubs and continued to feed them as before. These pairs’ growth rate was slower and they reached their sexual maturity slowly.”

He selected new pairs from each group, which generated another 39 litters. There were 52 pups born to the control group and 78 to the non-GM soy group. In the GM soy group, however, only 40 pups were born and of these, 25% died. This was a five-fold higher death rate than the 5% seen among the controls. Of the hamsters that ate high GM soy content, only a single female hamster gave birth. She had 16 pups; about 20% died.

Surov said “The low numbers in F2 [third generation] showed that many animals were sterile.”

The published paper will also include measurements of organ size for the third generation animals, including testes, spleen, uterus, etc.; and if the team can raise sufficient funds, they will also analyze hormone levels in collected blood samples.

Hair Growing in the Mouth

Earlier this year, Surov co-authored a paper in Doklady Biological Sciences showing that in rare instances, hair grows inside recessed pouches in the mouths of hamsters.

“Some of these pouches contained single hairs; others, thick bundles of colorless or pigmented hairs reaching as high as the chewing surface of the teeth. Sometimes, the tooth row was surrounded with a regular brush of hair bundles on both sides. The hairs grew vertically and had sharp ends, often covered with lumps of a mucous.”

Italian scientists similarly found changes in mice testes (PDF), including damaged young sperm cells. Furthermore, the DNA of embryos from parent mice fed GM soy functioned differently.

An Austrian government study published in November 2008 showed that the more GM corn was fed to mice, the fewer the babies they had (PDF) and the smaller the babies were.

Central Iowa Farmer Jerry Rosman also had trouble with pigs and cows becoming sterile. Some of his pigs even had false pregnancies or gave birth to bags of water. After months of investigations and testing, he finally traced the problem to GM corn feed. Every time a newspaper, magazine or TV show reported Jerry’s problems, he would receive calls from more farmers complaining of livestock sterility on their farms, linked to GM corn.

Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine accidentally discovered that rats raised on corncob bedding “neither breed nor exhibit reproductive behavior.” Tests on the corn material revealed two compounds that stopped the sexual cycle in females “at concentrations approximately two-hundredfold lower than classical phytoestrogens.” One compound also curtailed male sexual behavior and both substances contributed to the growth of breast and prostate cancer cell cultures. Researchers found that the amount of the substances varied with GM corn varieties. The crushed corncob used at Baylor was likely shipped from central Iowa, near the farm of Jerry Rosman and others complaining of sterile livestock.

In Haryana, India, a team of investigating veterinarians report that buffalo consuming GM cottonseed suffer from infertility, as well as frequent abortions, premature deliveries and prolapsed uteruses. Many adult and young buffalo have also died mysteriously.

Denial, Attack and Canceled Follow-up

Scientists, who discover adverse findings from GMOs, are regularly attacked, ridiculed, denied funding and even fired. When Ermakova reported the high infant mortality among GM soy fed offspring, for example, she appealed to the scientific community to repeat and verify her preliminary results. She also sought additional funds to analyze preserved organs. Instead, she was attacked and vilified. Samples were stolen from her lab, papers were burnt on her desk, and she said that her boss, under pressure from his boss, told her to stop doing any more GMO research. No one has yet repeated Ermakova’s simple, inexpensive studies.

Opting Out of the Massive GMO Feeding Experiment

Without detailed tests, no one can pinpoint exactly what is causing the reproductive travesties in Russian hamsters and rats, Italian and Austrian mice and livestock in India and America. In addition, we can only speculate about the relationship between the introduction of genetically modified foods in 1996 and the corresponding upsurge in low birth weight babies, infertility and other problems among the US population; but many scientists, physicians and concerned citizens don’t think that the public should remain the lab animals for the biotech industry’s massive, uncontrolled experiment.

Alexey Surov says, “We have no right to use GMOs until we understand the possible adverse effects, not only to ourselves, but to future generations as well. We definitely need fully detailed studies to clarify this. Any type of contamination has to be tested before we consume it and GMO is just one of them.”

One of my biggest fears is that infant formula in the USA that is mixed with soy “milk” will make babies deformed in some way. Soy infant formula has the equivalent of 5 birth control tablets per day. We can guess what this would do to women if they took 5 birth control pills a day, but what is it doing to little girls and boys.

The following is a question, not a fact. Is soy making these kids sterile? We will find out in a few years when they get married and try to have families. Is it making the girls have bigger breasts and develop sexually at an earlier age?  Are some boys becoming homosexual because of all the estrogens?

The point is that we don’t know – so why should these kids be guinea pigs for humanity and science?
