An astonishing two-thirds of all fresh chicken meat sold in grocery stores today is contaminated with salmonella. Diet soda is laced with aspartame, a chemical sweetener made from the feces of genetically engineered bacteria. “Natural” corn chips are made from genetically modified corn plants linked to widespread infertility when consumed by mammals.
Processed meats are laced with cancer-causing sodium nitrite and everything from soups to salad dressings is “enhanced” with the chemical excitotoxin known as MSG which promotes obesity.
Throughout the food industry, blueberries are faked using artificial colors, corn syrup and antifreeze liquids used to winterize vehicles. Milk fats are artificial modified through the process of homogenization, which makes them dangerous for human health.
The high fructose corn syrup used to sweeten sodas causes diabetes and is often contaminated with mercury. Chicken McNuggets are made with a chemical used in silly putty and the soy protein used in most protein bars is extracted using an explosive chemical called hexane.
The FDA says nothing about all this. Instead, the agency wants you to believe that the real danger in the food supply is found exclusively in raw dairy products which contain no additives or synthetic chemicals, by the way.
Yep: All the toxic chemicals and highly processed ingredients that cause cancer, diabetes, heart disease and nutritional deficiencies are all perfectly good for your health, the FDA says… because they’re dead!
OMG it’s alive!
Only LIVING foods, you see, pose a health risk according to the FDA. An FDA spokesperson was recently quoted in the NY Times claiming that raw milk causes children to become “paraplegics.” (Seriously, I’m not making this up.) Meanwhile, the FDA remains utterly silent on the far more alarming fact that children’s hot dogs are laced with cancer-causing sodium nitrite which causes a 300% increase in the risk of brain tumors.
The FDA, you see, has absolutely no concern whatsoever about truly dangerous foods. Almost any chemical in the food supply is fine with the FDA as long as it’s not actually alive.
If you’re a conventional foods manufacturer in the USA, you can quite literally dump huge quantities of cancer-causing chemicals directly into the food and the FDA won’t blink an eye. A little more cancer, after all, boosts the profits of the drug companies and the entire cancer industry, and that has been the FDA’s mission all along: To promote the financial interests of the drug companies which prey on sickness and disease.
In fact, much of the food being sold today that the FDA considered “safe” is actually made out of non-food synthetic chemicals or radically modified molecules that used to be food but are now closer to plastics. Partially-hydrogenated oils, for example, are a lot closer to plastic (which is a solid at room temperature) than oil (which is a liquid). That’s the whole point of hydrogenation: To make oils solid at room temperature. Care to guess what this does when those same hydrogenated fats are circulating around your bloodstream? Yep, they remain as solids there, too, sludging up your blood, clogging arteries and raising your blood pressure.
But the FDA has no problem with all that. Food companies can commit what is essentially mass genocide through the use of toxic food additives, and the FDA remains completely silent, with its hands over its eyes pretending to see nothing.
Meanwhile, people are dying every single day from preventable diseases caused by toxic food ingredients, dead foods, processed foods and pasteurized food products. The FDA, in openly allowing this to take place, is criminally negligent in the deaths of literally millions of people — far dwarfing the number of Jews murdered by the Nazi regime.
The FDA = Food and Death Administration
So don’t fall for the naive idea that the FDA is somehow interested in actual food safety. Get real! The FDA openly and arrogantly allows the American people to be poisoned en masse by the mainstream food supply being shipped and sold in grocery stores across American right now. What the FDA really doesn’t want happening is people waking up to the truth that raw milk is healthier than pasteurized milk. Because if that happened, people might start to question all the other dead, processed foods they’re eating, too.
And that might lead to a mass nutritional awakening and a revolution that would ultimately result in the arrest and prosecution of FDA tyrants — the very same people who have been criminally negligent in allowing the mass poisoning of the American people for all these years, you see. That’s what we really need: An armed Justice Department raid on the FDA! Put FDA commissioner Hamburg in shackles and parade her through the streets where all the tens of millions of people who have been damaged or maimed by toxic food ingredients can finally seek justice for the harm caused them by the FDA and the gang of unindicted criminals who run it.
That day is coming, by the way. Justice will arrive and those tyrants in government who have masterminded the mass poisoning of the American people will be held accountable for their crimes. The People will not forget, and the truth simply cannot be suppressed any longer. Thanks to the Rawesome Foods raid, it is now totally obvious to everyone that the FDA is waging a war of terrorism against the American people, and that this is a rogue agency which simply cannot be negotiated with.
Because here at NaturalNews, we do not negotiate with terrorists.

Whistle-blower Cheryl Eckard has won $96 million as part of a $750 million penalty against GlaxoSmithKline over faulty drug manufacturing in a case she says was driven by worries about consumer safety.
“This is not something I ever wanted to do, but because of patient safety issues, it was necessary,” she told reporters in Boston after the British drug giant’s settlement was announced Tuesday, according to The Associated Press.
Eckard, 51, was the company’s quality control manager. She discovered violations at the company’s plant in Puerto Rico in 2002 and reported them to her bosses, her lawyers said. She was fired in 2003 after repeatedly reporting problems to the company, and she later filed a lawsuit.
GlaxoSmithKline agreed to pay the millions in fines, penalties and settlements to resolve claims that it knowingly made and sold adulterated drugs, including Paxil, a popular antidepressant. Other problems include the failure to guarantee that Bactroban, an ointment, and an anti-nausea drug, Kytril, were not contaminated, according to reports. No patients seem to have been harmed by the problems at the plant, a prosecutor said.
Eckard, who worked in North Carolina, is to receive $96 million as a whistle-blower under the federal False Claims Act. The law offers a cut of the money recovered as incentive for people with knowledge of false claims to come forward.
She said going ahead with the lawsuit wasn’t easy.
“I think it’s very, very difficult to survive this,” Eckard said, according to New England Cable News. “It’s difficult to survive this financially, emotionally, you lose all your friends, because all your friends are people you have at work.”
Still, she said, “You really do have to understand that it’s a very difficult process, but very well worth it.”
Her lawyers, Neil Getnick and Leslie Ann Skillen, believe her share is the single-biggest whistle-blower award in the U.S., NECN reported.
“This case will change the way drugmakers run their factories,” Getnick said, according to The New York Times.
Eckard was sent to the plant in Cidra, Puerto Rico, to fix problems the Food and Drug Administration had cited in a warning letter, according to the Times. She found that the company’s premier manufacturing facility had a contaminated water system, an air system that allowed products to be cross-contaminated and pills of different strengths mixed in the same bottles, among other problems, the newspaper said.
She complained to top company officials, but nothing was done, even after she threatened to call the FDA, the Times said. She filed her lawsuit, and the FDA began a criminal investigation. The plant was closed in 2009 because the company was unable to fix it, according to the newspaper.
Eckard hopes she’ll inspire others who see something wrong to speak up.
“You have to believe in your heart [that] this is the right thing,” she said, according to NECN. “In my case, I was very, very concerned about patient safety.”

A California lawsuit is accusing several fish oil supplement manufacturers of selling fish oils that contain unsafe levels of polychlorinated biphenyl compounds, also known as PCBs. The state’s Proposition 65 requires products that may contain toxic ingredients above safe levels to have warning labels for consumer safety.
Five supplement companies, CVS and Rite Aid drug stores, and Omega Protein, Inc., the world’s largest producer of omega-3 fish oil, are all named in the suit, which the plaintiffs hope will bring light to fish oil contamination problems. They also hope to see more accurate labeling of fish oils that includes specifics about contaminants like PCBs; that way, consumers will be able to make better decisions about which kinds are safe to buy.
The PCB chemical family consists of 209 different chemical compounds, all of which were tested for in the lawsuit by a California lab. That same lab also tested each of the product samples for 12 of the most toxic PCB compounds. It then evaluated each sample in terms of daily exposure to PCBs overall, and daily exposure to PCBs in terms of toxicity.
The brands tested included Nature Made, Twinlab, Now Foods, Solgar and GNC. Each brand included various types of fish oil, including cod liver, shark liver and salmon. Those that tested the lowest for PCBs contained one-70th the amount of those with the highest levels, indicating a significant difference in contamination among various brands, and types, of fish oil.
According to David Roe, the man who filed the lawsuit in San Francisco’s Superior Court, the oils that tested highest exceed California’s daily limit for PCBs by a factor of ten in terms of cancer risk. On the same token, some of the oils tested very low, and are not of particular concern to consumers.
Both Nature Made and Twinlab issued immediate responses to the lawsuit in defense of their respective brands’ safety. Erin Hlasney from the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), a supplement industry trade group, also came to the defense of fish oils in general, explaining that they have been used safely for decades.
But the plaintiffs contend that it is not enough to simply say that a product meets guidelines; consumers have a right to know how a product actually tests for contaminants once it arrives on store shelves. Many brands claim that their fish oils have been purified and treated to reduce or remove contaminants, but few actually explain to what extent these toxins have been removed.
