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.

Ten Cheap Health Foods

There are so many ways to eat healthfully without breaking the bank. I hope you can find something that you can use in the following ten items.

  • 10. Organic eggs – Eggs have gotten a bad rap from medicine and diet dictocrats for the last forty years because they say the cholesterol from eggs causes cholesterol in your blood vessels and hence heart disease. This is an out-and-out lie. There has never been one study or one ounce of evidence that eating any type of cholesterol causes cholesterol.

Eggs can be an inexpensive health food but even organic store eggs can be unhealthy if you are not careful to buy best cage-free, free-range, fresh eggs. Most store bought eggs are 3 to 6 months old even if they are organic. The best solution besides organic free- range eggs is to find a person who raises eggs in the city or country. It is quite the rage to have chickens in communities. They are a great source of protein.

  • 9. Organic plain yogurt without sugar – This is true and this may be the best you can get yogurt, but making your own yogurt from raw milk is the healthiest way to get beneficial bacteria (contact www.westonaprice.org website). Adding fresh local organic fruits can add many antioxidants for better health.
  • 8. Seeds – A great way to add nutrition and be cheap at the same time. There are all kinds of seeds and nuts that are healthy, but avoid the ones done in oil (usually vegetable, hence trans fats) and salt. Walnuts are wonderful because of the healthy omega. Almonds are fine, but the California Almond board wants to use radiation on all of their nuts. (This is in court as I write this.) Always check sources of all foods before you eat anything.
  • 7. Berries – These are loaded with antioxidants and can be very healthy if they are organic. Unfortunately, most fruits and vegetables are not raised on healthy soil and are sprayed with pesticides. Frozen berries can be fine if the source is clean.
  • 6. Buckwheat – This is a seed, not a grain, and quite healthy if grown on healthy soil. It is not wheat and, in fact, it is a good substitute for those who are sensitive to wheat products. You can make a cereal/porridge out of buckwheat. It has the ability to stabilize blood sugar. It is similar to rice and, not being a grain, is very beneficial.
  • 5. Coconut milk – This can be a cheap substitute for all the processed milk in our grocery stores that is so unhealthy. This is a good source of healthy saturated fats and protein. It is natural and the trees cannot be destroyed and damaged by corporate industrialized food companies. If you can’t buy raw milk, then use this as a substitute in your favorite recipes.
  • 4. Spinach – Is a great vegetable that can be cooked with scrambled eggs and in other healthful ways. It should be organic and now the new worry is that the government is allowing spinach and lettuce to be irradiated to kill bacteria from sloppy, dirty farms and poor handling companies. It can also be eaten raw in salads.
  • 3. Garlic – This certainly is a stinky food but the health benefits are enormous. It helps to cleanse the body and detoxify many of our pollutants in the food, water and air. It  has a high sulphur content to help with joints. Do it raw if you can, otherwise cook with it regularly.
  • 2. Wild rice – which is not  rice but actually a grass. This is a great food and with real butter, can build your health. If you can’t find real raw butter, then coconut oil is a great substitute for improving your health, particularly your immune system. Wild rice is not like wheat that creates many allergies and it will also help your blood sugar levels.
  • 1. Lentils – These are part of the legume family. They have good protein and lots of fiber. They taste great, but they take on the flavor of whatever you are cooking with them. They will do well with ham, vegetables, chicken stock, mushroom stock or whatever you want to cook with them.

I certainly have not mentioned everything, but these ten are good starters. I did not mention lima beans, pinto beans or soup beans, and with spring coming on, we will have tomatoes soon that can be grown cheaply, even on a patio.

Always be careful what you use for seasoning, as so many condiments have radiation used on them today, and so many prepared seasonings have MSG, hydrolyzed vegetable protein and large amounts of salt.

Remember that salt is only bad when it is used excessively and when it is only sodium chloride, without seventy two trace minerals like the salt from Redmond minerals in Redmond, Utah.
