Biotech is Godzilla




It's been called the Paleo diet, the Primal diet, the caveman diet among other things. There's also a number of  labels, smears, and libels that proliferate in the mass media and on teh Interwebz, all designed to make the average person form an impression in their minds that the "paleo" diet phenomenon is some bizarre re-enactment lifestyle that only kooks and morons are promoting...just another kooky, fad diet.

Here's a new name: call it the Anti-Monsanto diet. If you went out of your way to avoid eating or drinking any feed products that have ingredients manufactured by this evil corporation, you're basically following the same guidelines as the Paleo or Primal diet anyhow. When it comes to making the base ingredients for sheeple feed aka "processed food," Monsanto is King.

 Anyone can look at this list of sheeple feed companies and connect them to popular food items found in grocery stores, convenience stores, vending machines and checkout stands all across first world countries. Don't forget the fast food, franchise restaurants and even most fine dining establishments obtain their ingredients from these feed manufacturers as well.

In fact, if you look at the following diagram showing the Corporatization of the Sheeple Feed industry, you could say it's missing the central hub:

Put this logo smack dab in the middle and connect all those brands to it, and  you'll have a more accurate diagram.

 

All of those companies buy their manufactured base ingredients, produced by the crops genetically engineered, subsidized by the Federal Government and turned into thousands upon thousands of different sheeple feed products. Have a look at the prominent members of their board of directors. The President of McDonalds Corp. USA, the retired CEO and Chairman of the Board for the Sarah Lee Corp., the CFO of Proctor and Gamble.

Other members of Monsanto's Board include former executive officers from Lockheed and Martin, CISCO, and other energy and technology companies. The more you look into it, the more you realize that all of the "Industrial Complex" corporations are all interconnected with each other, and connected to the top appointments of all the regulatory agencies in the Federal Government. With this kind of influence, they've been able to saturate the entire food chain with their poison. Sound crazy? Start reading your food labels. you'll notice certain common ingredients found in most of it.

Monsanto's GMO soybeans are used to make Soybean oil and GMO rapeseeds to make Canola oil, both of which are commonly used in deep fat fryers, salad dressings, mayo, potato chips amongst other things.



Partially Hydrogenated "Vegetable" Oil (aka GMO Soybean or Rapeseed) is used to make margarines and shortenings, which is then used to manufacture a near endless supply of baked products, snack foods, deserts, cakes, pastries, breads, buns, tortillas, crackers and condiments.




High Fructose Corn Syrup. Corn oil. Dextrose. Maltodextrin. Corn meal. All key ingredients in the sheeple feed industry. All derived from the genetically modified, pesticide drenched fields grown all across the fruited plains.



If FDA ingredient listing requirements called for listing sources of those ingredients, the big M would be on almost everything.

To go on the Anti-Monsanto diet, would be to essentially avoid almost any foods that come in a package, box or can that has an ingredient listing on it. Given the ubiquity of Monsanto derived ingredients in so much of the world's feed supply, could it really be hyperbole to link this Global Corporate Conglomerate of Corpulence, Disease and Death,  with the worldwide rise in obesity?

People regularly try to pinpoint a single vector in trying to attribute blame on the obesity epidemic. High Fructose Corn Syrup. Deep fried fast food. More sedentary lifestyles. Meh. If you want to try and point the finger at a single source, I don't think it's too outlandish to focus on these dastardly bastards.




Here's another thought to consider: an anti-Monsanto diet, would also leave out all of the factory farmed meats in which the cows, chickens and pigs are all fed Monsanto's genetically modified, Round Up drenched grains. Grass fed. pasture raised animal products are the only way you can assure you're not eating anything produced by Monsanto.


As J. Stanton of gnolls.org points out:

It’s clear that it’s far more profitable to sell us processed grain products than meat, eggs, and vegetables…which leaves a lot of money available to spend on persuading us to buy them. Are you starting to understand why grains are encased in colorful packaging, pushed on us as “heart-healthy” by the government, and advertised continually in all forms of media?

And when we purchase grass-fed beef directly from the rancher, eggs from the farmer, and produce from the grower, we are bypassing the entire monumentally profitable system of industrial agriculture—the railroads, grain elevators, antibiotics, growth hormones, plows, combines, chemical fertilizers (the Haber process, by which ammonium nitrate fertilizer is made, uses 3-5% of world natural gas production!), processors, inspectors, fortifiers, manufacturers, distributors, and advertisers that profit so handsomely by turning cheap grains into expensive food-like substances.

All these additives, fillers, oils and by-products of their grains may be bad enough as it is, but all of these things produced by Monsanto may also have a multiplier effect on destroying the health of people that eat their feed. It's the great sheeple feed ROUND UP.

Here's a recently published study on the effects of glyphosate on the human gut biome (your gut bacteria, you know, the key to your immune system). Glyphosate is the key ingredient in Round Up, the herbicide that all Monsanto crops have been genetically engineered to withstand repeated spraying to kill weeds, insects and rodents?

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup®, is the most popular herbicide used worldwide. The industry asserts it is minimally toxic to humans, but here we argue otherwise. Residues are found in the main foods of the Western diet, comprised primarily of sugar, corn, soy and wheat. Glyphosate's inhibition of cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes is an overlooked component of its toxicity to mammals. CYP enzymes play crucial roles in biology, one of which is to detoxify xenobiotics. Thus, glyphosate enhances the damaging effects of other food borne chemical residues and environmental toxins. Negative impact on the body is insidious and manifests slowly over time as inflammation damages cellular systems throughout the body.
Here, we show how interference with CYP enzymes acts synergistically with disruption of the biosynthesis of aromatic amino acids by gut bacteria, as well as impairment in serum sulfate transport. Consequences are most of the diseases and conditions associated with a Western diet, which include gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression, autism, infertility, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. We explain the documented effects of glyphosate and its ability to induce disease, and we show that glyphosate is the “textbook example” of exogenous semiotic entropy: the disruption of homeostasis by environmental toxins.

All the processed food, all the feed lot grain, gardens, lawns and golf courses have been inundated with glysophate.

Mmmm....looks appetizing!

 How did we get to this point in time, where a large, multi-national Agricultural corporation is able to infiltrate their poisons into nearly every food consumed nowadays? Simple. They've worked their way into the halls of power in Sodom by the Potomac.

The revolving door of FDA/USDA appointments and Federal Government administrative personnel has been well documented. And bit by bit, piece by piece, we the sheeple get sold out by the politicians who approve the poisoning of our food supply by this corporate behemoth.





The Republican party? The Democrat party? Try the Monsanto party.





Government for the sheeple, by the Multinational Agricultural-Chemical-Pharmaceutical Corporation. They own and run this feedlot we call society.




Aren't you glad you have the freedom to vote? A vote for a Democrat Jackass or a vote for a Republican Pachyderm, is a vote for the Monsanto Jachyderm.

Well, I'm not interested in voting for this incorporated monstrosity. Therefore I don't vote with my ballot, and I don't vote with my dollars when making my purchasing decisions. Go to your local farmer's markets. Buy organic. Boycott the bastards.

I have been following the "no processed foods" diet for half a decade, and I can attest to its perhaps unintended similarity to the paleo diet (of which I heard only recently).

It worked great: I lost weight, my blood pressure is 110 / 70, heart rate is 65 - despite very little exercise, various weird aches and pains disappeared. Not too bad for a nearly 40yr old dude. Despite little exercise, my body is in decent shape and people sometimes mistake me for being in my late twenties! Ha! :-)

The key is to choose (as much as possible) things that are the closest to their non-processed natural form. Baked potato over fries. Steak over hamburger. Salad (very little dressing) over soup. Water or wine over soft-drinks. Nuts and grains over granola-bars. Etc... It is a very simple rule that you can follow in any circumstance.

In nearly a decade, I did NOT consume any of these, not even once: no coke or any other soft-drink, no ketchup, no mayo, no steak sauce, no candy bars, no granola bars, ho hamburgers (yes imagine that!), no onion rings, no fries, no soup (expect in very high end restaurants, or when it is homemade).

My favorite diet consists of grilled steak or fish or chicken (rarely), with steamed or grilled vegetables + wine, water or tea (not from bottle). For snakcing: fruits, nuts, grains, artisan French bread (a real baguette) and French cheese. Sometimes organic eggs for breakfast..

Give Monsanto (and all processed food industry) the finger.. you'll feel better !!

As usual, if you give the government too much power, they will be bought. I don't really blame Monsanto. It's their nature. You don't give the Scorpion a ride across the river.

I think you're conflating two issues here, carbs, and GMO.

I've been paying attention to this for years, and no one has been proven to have been harmed by GMO foods. Monsanto may well be as bad - legally and politically - as people claim, but GMO foods aren't the bogey man the ideological environmentalists make them out to be (beyond any problems the non-GMO version may entail.)

Tom said...

He's not saying GMO is bad because it is GMO. He is saying that it allows the use of RoundUp on everything, which is PROVEN to be bad.

If RoundUp is bad, where are all the sick and dead people?

Heh, where are the sick people? I just bought some Wendy's McNuggets (no food in the fridge, grocery shopping afterwards) and those five "chicken" pieces left my gut feeling terrible.

On March 26, 2013, the Messiah-Emperor signed into law the "Monsanto Protection Act", which "exempts biotech companies from litigation." Apparently Monsanto, like the nuclear industry*, could not survive if it could be held liable for the consequences of its acts. That's all I need to know; I don't need to argue the details (though I am not unaware of them).

* The "Price-Anderson Act" exempts the nuke industry from responsibility for its acts (or errors, etc.). If they have an "accident", they don't pay, we do. That's all I need to know. Power divorced from responsibility is always a mistake.

I oppose these two "miraculous" technologies because they are pure hubris. "Hubris often indicates a loss of contact with reality and an overestimation of one's own competence or capabilities, especially when the person exhibiting it is in a position of power." It didn't end well for Icarus; it won't end well for us.

Similarly, it is illegal in Canada and many European countries to question the official narrative of the "Holocaust". That's all I need to know; I don't need to investigate further (though I have).

See how easy they make it to tell that they are lying?

Keoni:
I read a report from the CDC recently stating that nearly 1/8 American children under 12 are diagnosed with congenital psychological disorders like autism, ADHD, bipolarity &c. It's also known that physical problems like diabetes is nearly epidemic today.

But I was wondering: while I'm certain that some of this legalized food poisoning is responsible for part of this; I tend more to believe that these congenital childhood disorders are coming mostly from the fact that most American women are not reproducing with (to put it mildly) the best genetic material.

It seems to me that if women are mating with limp-wristed metrosexuals who barely have a sustainable sperm count, or dysfunctional thugs whose own diet is mostly prison food and narcotics, then it logically follows that the offspring of such unions is going to be defective.

Of course, the femihags don't want anyone to notice this; which makes me automatically suspicious that some of the finger-pointing at Corporate Agriculture may be largely a distraction (though this doesn't mean that HFCS and other chemicals are harmless).

What is your opinion on that?

i've already started practicing growing so when i retire i can have my own damn feed lot.

read the best way to learn is to start small. now i'm doing herbs and tomatos.

Keoni, I agree with you on this; this seems to be some propaganda against vegetables. By the way this is the late, wizardcorpse of Optimum Awareness. I have not renewed that site and for obvious reasons so please replace that RSS for optimum awareness on the homepage and replace it with this one:

and I go by the name Iron Thumb as of late and pls name my link About Lifting
Gracias por tu tiempo

rycamor said...

Danny... yes starting with herbs and tomatoes is an easy way to get into it. But depending on where you live, you definitely want to bulk up your garden. Kale and collards are extremely easy to grow in the summers farther north and almost year-round in parts of the South. And they are extremely good for you. They should be dietary staples for most men, IMHO. Other things I've found extremely easy to grow in the South: sweet potatoes, peppers, cucumbers, radishes. Some of the other traditional veggies like broccoli and cauliflower take a little more work but they are well worth it.

Go see my buddy's website Florida Survival Gardening if you live anywhere southwards. Lots of good info.
