    Toxic glyphosate (Roundup) found to be harming dairy cows

    Agribusiness spent $751 million over the past 5 years on lobbying congress and another $480.5 million in direct campaign contributions over the past two decades. Since 1995, taxpayers have provided $292.5 billion in direct agricultural subsidies, another $96 billion in crop insurance subsidies, and over $100 billion in subsidies to promote the growth of genetically engineered corn and soy.

    Many people don’t realize that a whopping 80 percent of antibiotics in the U.S. are used in agriculture, mostly in ways that speed up the development of resistance, meaning these vital drugs may not work when people need them most.

    U.S. dairy industry petitions FDA to approve aspartame as hidden, unlabeled additive in milk, yogurt, eggnog and cream (NaturalNews) You probably already know that the FDA has declared war on raw milk and even helped fund and coordinate armed government raids against raw milk farmers and distributors. Yes, it's insane. This brand of tyranny is unique to the USA and isn't even conducted in China, North Koraor Cuba. Only in the USA are raw milk farmers treated like terrorists. But now the situation is getting even more insane than you could have imagined: the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) and the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) have filed a petition with the FDA asking the FDA to alter the definition of "milk" to secretly include chemical sweeteners such as aspartame and sucralose. Importantly, none of these additives need to be listedon the label. They will simply be swept under the definition of "milk," so that when a company lists "milk" on the label, it automatically includes aspartame or sucralose. And if you're trying to avoid aspartame, you'll have no way of doing so because it won't be listed on the label. This isn't only for milk, either: It's also for yogurt, cream, sour cream, eggnog, whipping cream and a total of 17products, all of which are listed in the petition at FDA.gov. As the petition states: IDFA and NMPF request their proposed amendments to the milk standard of identity to allow optional characterizing flavoring ingredients used in milk (e.g., chocolate flavoring added to milk) to be sweetened with any safe and suitable sweetener -- including non-nutritive sweeteners such as aspartame. This is all being done to "save the children," we're told, because the use of aspartame in milk products would reduce calories. Milk industry specifically asks to HIDEaspartame from consumers Astonishingly, the dairy industry is engaged in extreme doublespeak logic and actually arguing that aspartame should be hidden from consumers by not listing it on the label. Here's what the petition says: IDFA and NMPF argue that nutrient content claims such as "reduced calorie" are not attractive to children, and maintain that consumers can more easily identify the overall nutritional value of milk products that are flavored with non-nutritive sweeteners if the labels do not include such claims. Further, the petitioners assert that consumers do not recognize milk -- including flavored milk -- as necessarily containing sugar. Accordingly, the petitioners state that milk flavoredwith non-nutritive sweeteners should be labeled as milk without further claims so that consumers can "more easily identify its overall nutritional value." In other words, hiding aspartame from consumers by not including it on the label actually helps consumers, according to the IDFA and NMPF! Yep, consumers are best served by keeping them ignorant. If this logic smacks of the same kind of twisted deception practiced by Monsanto, that's because it's identical: the less consumers know, the more they are helped, according to industry. And it's for the children, too, because children are also best served by keeping them poisoned with aspartame. Consumers have always been kept in the dark about pink slime, meat glue, rBGH and GMOs in their food. And now, if the IDFA gets its way, you'll be able to drink hormone-contaminated milk from an antibiotics-inundatedcow fed genetically modified crops and producing milk containing hidden aspartame. And you won't have the right to know about any of this! The FDA confirms this "secret" status of aspartame, stating, "If the standard of identity for milk is amended as requested by petitioners, milk manufacturers could use non-nutritive sweeteners in flavored milk without a nutrient content claim in its labeling." FDA requests comments The FDA is requesting comments on this petition. You have until May 21st, 2013to submit your comments. Click here for instructions. This is a clue to stop drinking processed milk and milk products altogether There's abigger story here than just the industry hoping to get FDA approval to secretly put aspartame in milk products while not listing aspartame on the label. The bigger question is this: If anindustry is pushing to hide aspartame in its products, what else is it already hiding? How about the pus content of its dairy products? How about its inhumane treatment of animals who are subjected to torture conditions and pumped full of genetically engineered hormones? How about the fact that homogenization and pasteurization turn a whole food into adietary nightmare that promotes obesity, autoimmune disorders and cardiovascular disease? There are lots of dirty little secrets in the dairy industry of course, and that doesn't even get into the secret closed-door conversations to encourage the FDA to destroy the competition of raw milk. The only rational answer to all this is to stop buying and consuming processed dairy products, period! Igave up ALL milk products many years ago and have never looked back. I drink almond milk, not pus-filled pasteurized cow's milk. (Click here for arecipe to make your own almond milk at home.) I don't eat yogurt. If I want probiotics, Iget them from tasty chewable probiotics supplements such as Sunbiotics. I parted ways with processed dairy products many years ago, and as a result, my cardiovascular health, skin health, digestive health and staminahave all remained in outstanding shape. There's also a philosophical issue here: Don't buy products from an industry that habitually LIES about everything. The dairy industry is like amafia. They actively seek to destroy the competition, keep consumers ignorant and monopolize the market. They run highly deceptive ads with ridiculous claims like, "drinking milk helps you lose weight" and other nonsense. The U.S. dairy industry is steeped indeception at every level, and now they want you and your children to unknowingly drink aspartame that's secretly blended into the product. The dairy industry is to food as Lance Armstrong is to sports. It's all a big lie, laced with secret chemicals and false claims. Stop drinking milk. Stop financially supporting the food mafia.

    SCIENTISTS WHO QUESTION GMOS ARE BEING CENSORED AND THREATENED - Statements made by scientists themselves prove that 95% of the research in the area of genetic engineering is paid by the industry. Only 5% of the research is independent. The big danger for freedom of science and our democracy is evident. Can the public -- we all -- still trust our scientists? [...] [07/24]

    The scientists fed bumblebees neonicotinoid at levels commonly occurring in agricultural concerns and then measured how it accumulated in their brains. They found that the insecticide impaired brain cell function in the bees, causing them difficulty with such tasks as realizing that flower scents imply food and being able to find their way back home after foraging. Such problems impacted whole colonies, the team found.
