Support The More Than 300,000 Organic Farmers Who Lost Their Court Battle to Monsanto – Sign The Heartfelt Petition to OSGTA Today!
March 5th, 2012
By: Ethan A. Huff
U.S. District Court Judge Naomi Buchwald’s recent dismissal of a massive class-action lawsuit filed by farmers against Monsanto is truly disheartening, but it does not mean that we should now give up the fight for food freedom and justice. And as an expression of unified solidarity for the cause of food sovereignty, Jack Adam Weber from Wake Up World has created a hopeful petition letter to the farmers that conveys support and appreciation for their work, and encourages them not to give up — and he is asking everyone who appreciates clean, organic food to show their support by signing it.
The letter, which is posted over at Wake Up World as well as at Change.org, expresses solace and comfort to the farmers, but also a bit of hope and promise that, one day, we will win this war against food tyranny and take back our land and our freedoms from those who have stolen it away from us. It also specifically promises that, when an appeal is filed in response to the dismissal, those of us in the natural health community will be right there to support it.
“With each blow to our justice, to our health, to our peace of mind, to our children’s future, we will grow stronger, more united, and determined,” says one section of the letter. “And with each subsequent act of corruption we will come thundering back to take back our lives, our wealth, which we believe can still be free. Count on it. It’s a promise from all of us to you, fellow farmers. And it’s our promise to Monsanto, the soulless politicians who enable them, and to all Big Business Bullies.”
You can access the petition letter at the following two links:

This particular battle may have been lost, at least for now, but the war is not over. As the Organic Seed Growers & Trade Association (OSGTA) gears up to file an appeal, we need to be right there with the group to make sure the case does not get dismissed again, and that all the facts are heard. We must ensure that the next judge who hears the case will not be able to get away with claiming that it has no grounds, since farmers have already been sued by Monsanto in years past, and will likely be sued in the future as well (http://www.centerforfoodsafety.org).

“The only reason the FBI is worried about libertarians is because the FBI wants total control over your life.” –KTRN
As the definition of a domestic extremist continues to expand to include activists for peace, animal rights, currency, natural health, liberty and other noble causes, the FBI is ready to make an example out of one group in particular: Libertarians.
The FBI held a press conference Monday to “increase the visibility of the threat” that people who oppose taxes and regulations, government intrusions into their private property, and the desire for sound money allegedly pose to local authorities.
Although the FBI vaguely attempts to label this group as “sometimes known as ‘sovereign citizens’”, the description sounds an awful lot like me, and millions of other liberty-minded people in America that don’t associate with any group.
They also sound like Ron Paul supporters.
According to Reuters:
Anti-government extremists opposed to taxes and regulations pose a growing threat to local law enforcement officers in the United States, the FBI warned on Monday.
These extremists, sometimes known as ‘sovereign citizens,’ believe they can live outside any type of government authority, FBI agents said at a news conference.
The extremists may refuse to pay taxes, defy government environmental regulations and believe the United States went bankrupt by going off the gold standard.
Notice the resolute use of the word “extremists” but the vague description “sometimes known as sovereign citizens.” Yet the description that these “extremists may refuse to pay taxes and defy government environmental regulations” sounds more like General Electric than average liberty activists who the FBI clearly seems hellbent on demonizing.

“Everyone should do some type of cleanse twice a year. The colon cleanse should be the first one you do.” –KTRN
A recent article published in The Science of Biology espouses the anti-detoxification views of Professor David Bender, professor emeritus of nutritional biochemistry at University College London. In his article, titled The Detox Delusion, Professor Bender claims that detoxification is a “meaningless marketing term,” even potentially dangerous to your health and unnecessary as a dieting tool. He further states, “I am not sure what ‘self-healing’ is and the idea of ‘raised energy levels’ is nonsense.”
For many in the mainstream medical and scientific community, it is not pharmaceutical drugs (killing approximately 100,000 each year), or pollutants found in our food, air and water that are dangerous. It is not the unstudied synergistic effect of the millions of tons of toxic waste released each year, creating a veritable toxic soup from which we breathe that may be dangerous to human health. Rather it is detoxification itself that poses a threat.
This community of “thinkers,” who largely agree with Bender, believe the body incapable of self-healing (i.e. every symptom must be suppressed rather than expressed). They obviously see that chemicals and pharmaceuticals can be useful in manipulating symptoms; however, they fail to appreciate the merit and influence of eliminating harmful chemicals from the body through detoxification. In short, they want it both ways.
Is detoxification a fanciful notion?
To consider the skepticism which often surrounds detoxification, one must start with two specific questions: Is it possible to rid the body of harmful chemicals via detoxification; and, if so, is it necessary? Natural health advocates answer “yes” to both questions while conventional science and medicine generally say “no”.
Setting aside the idea – which to some degree may be accurate – that every diet is based on some form of marketing scheme, the blanket claim that detoxification is completely unnecessary and even dangerous is absurd. Simply because it is possible that a person could harm him or herself when engaged in, let’s say, a severe diet or fast does not mean detoxification is dangerous.

The medical-industrial complex has a fetish for maligning natural health protocols, taking every opportunity it can to swipe at the effectiveness of natural vitamins and dietary supplements. But its most recent scare campaign over the supposed dangers of taking vitamins and supplements, which was based on a very poorly conducted study, shows how pitifully desperate this corrupt system has become.
In a recent release, the Alliance for Natural Health (ANH) explains, in detail, why the Iowa Women’s Health Study, which was published in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine and used by the mainstream media to allege that taking vitamin supplements is linked with increased mortality, is essentially manipulated, pseudo-scientific nonsense.
In case you missed it, you can read all about the vitamin study fraud-fest at the following link:
Among the key points in ANH’s rebuttal to the study is the fact that its data had to be “massaged” in order to arrive at the results it did. In truth, the study team actually found that vitamins and supplements help to prolong life, not reduce it. But by adjusting the data to fit their preconceived goal of finding a link between vitamins and increased mortality, the research team was able to successfully arrive at (very loose) anti-vitamin results.
According to ANH, author Dr. Jaakko Mursu deliberately excluded lifestyle factors from their data equation, which ultimately skewed the results. Lifestyle factors play a hugely significant role in mortality rates, of course, but this information was conveniently omitted.
The research team also admits in the final comment portion of its study that it failed to gather data about supplements taken as part of a specific medical regimen. The team says it did not have any data “regarding nutritional status or detailed information of supplements used,” which is a significant deficiency that proves the illegitimacy of the study.

Pharmaceutical industry influence over health care wanes as failure and recession concerns turn patients to what others have done in the past that worked.
She used to get debilitating menstrual cramps every month. For two days in 28, a Canadian woman (who doesn’t want to be identified) rolled around in bed in severe pain and nausea. When she was well she visited a doctor who suggested a drug store shelf staple targeted to women like her. She told the doctor she tried it and couldn’t stomach the side effects.
Why Natural Remedies Aren’t Prescribed.
The woman finally went to a Naturopath, who recommended she try the oil from the evening primrose flower as a preventative and treatment for cramps and bloating. She did. It worked. She went back to her doctor with the exciting news but he didn’t seem surprised at all.
“That’s what my wife uses,” he said to her shock and confusion.
She asked, then why didn’t he suggest that treatment to her, as the only ‘side effects’ were beneficial. Evening Primrose oil is a source of Omega fatty acids. It was a short time before he would be quitting his practice out of frustration with the politicized medical system. “I’m not permitted to do that,” was his response. Pharmaceuticals are okay to prescribe. Natural remedies are not. They don’t go through the rigorous testing process that ‘drugs’ do, and they never will, because they’re already widely marketed and there would be no payback for the multi-million dollar cost of the process. It’s in this spirit that this article is written.
What ‘They’ Use
To avoid the risk of being sued for recommending ‘unconventional’ treatments for ills, this article is written describing what others have used successfully to treat a variety of health challenges. The caveat is responsibly added: any information included in this article is not intended to be a substitute for conventional medical consultation.
It was a shock when computer genius and entrepreneur Steve Jobs died in 2011 at 56 years of age. He had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, treated surgically, and was believed cured and expected to live much longer than he did.
Essiac, Flor Essence, Prayer and an old Ojibwa Medicine Man
A contributor to this article says a CT scan performed on her confirmed a rapidly growing tumour on her pancreas that left her to be unable to eat, and caused her severe pain, jaundice and exhaustion. She had already met with her lawyer and called her life insurance company to alert them to her fast approaching demise when she made what might have been a last trip to the local church. There, a man sitting in front of her prayed personally and fervently for her healing. So did her chiropractor. So did others. Someone got her some Essiac and Flor Essence, both teas made from a number of North American plants used by the Ojibwa first nations for hundreds of years to cure cancer. She was able to digest that tea when nothing else would stay down, and eventually an MRI confirmed that her pancreas was back to normal. There is a rising question, could prayer and the tea have helped Steve Jobs? Patrick Swayze? The myriads of others taxing health care systems?
In his book, Natural Cures “They” Don’t Want You to Know About, (Alliance Publishing Group), Kevin Trudeau provides ample evidence that money and political influence affect the dissemination of medical information around the globe.
He reiterates many known but rarely advised insights into ways to be healed and get healthy such as adequate, good quality sleep and a nutrient rich, organic diet that doesn’t include processed foods. Nutrition is covered for about 20 minutes of the curriculum for medical doctors according to one graduate of the University of Toronto even though whatever is input directly into a system obviously would have the greatest effect. As illustrated in the documentary Super Size Me, unfortunately, people don’t want to hear that they shouldn’t have what they love and are used to. The result is unmanageable health care costs and early deaths.
There are a myriad of treatments on the market for frequent and uncontrolled urination, but some people have found that coffee drinking causes that unpleasantness for them. Some people need to avoid tea, and many have found that real, pure cranberry products help to reverse the effects and negate the need for adult diapers. Drinking cranberry juice has helped a number of people deal with recurrent bladder infections.
Cold cloths on the head and/or massages can alleviate headaches that normally would be treated with drugs that cause stomach and liver problems. Many arthritis sufferers claim to find great relief from taking natural products like pineapple and cherry extracts, boswellia and turmeric (which has many other uses). Doctors generally prescribe anti-inflammatory drugs for arthritis that result in stomach problems that have to be investigated and treated.
It’s well documented that antibiotics cause digestive problems, but those who know, replenish their intestinal flora and fauna with bacteria like acidophilis.
Hyper acidity and acid reflux, both dangerous conditions, have been successfully treated with diet change; mainly, eating alkaline causing foods.
Trudeau responds to his detractors by saying he really doesn’t stand to gain much by recommending that people excercise and eat naturally to be healthy.
“Licensed health-care practitioners who use natural remedies instead of drugs and surgery report higher success rates than medical doctors using drugs and surgery. They also report virtually no side effects compared to medical doctors who report negative side effects in virtually 100 percent of their patients” (P 288, Natural Cures).
In the wake of what seems to many to be an inevitable global recession, health care is going to have to be an individual responsibility, he says, with research and getting the word out as the key.

As the world awaits the FDA’s decision on whether to approve genetically modified salmon as “safe enough” to allow into the food supply, it seems that not enough people in the existing fishing industries have really thought this through. As you’ll see here, approval of GE salmon could destroy the existing salmon industry. Why? Here’s the reason:
The FDA says that once it approves GE salmon (which now seems likely), it will not require GE salmon to be labeled as “genetically modified” or “genetically engineered.” In fact, the FDA ridiculously claims it would be illegal to require these GE fish to be labeled as such because they are, in the minds of the FDA, no different from regular fish.
Now here’s why this matters: If consumers are not told which salmon is GE, many will avoid buying ALL salmon.
In fact, organizations like NaturalNews and many others like the Organic Consumers Association would likely take strong action, warning people to avoid all salmon because you never know which salmon is genetically modified.
As word about the non-labeling of GE salmon spreads, more and more consumers would avoid buying salmon altogether. This is precisely how the introduction of GE salmon into the food supply could destroy the existing salmon industry.
The FDA’s inexcusable non-labeling of genetically modified salmon creates distrust in the entire category. And just as the natural health community has been successful in warning people to avoid MSG and HFCS, we will almost certainly be successful in warning people away from eating salmon, too (if GE salmon infects the food supply). And that’s a shame because, by and large, the natural health industry supports wild-caught salmon as a healthy source of omega-3 oils. But virtually overnight, the FDA’s approval of GE salmon could reverse our position on this issue and make us outspoken opponents of buying and consuming salmon.
I wonder if the salmon industry is aware that this situation could devastate existing salmon farms and fisheries?
Opening the floodgates to more GE factory farmed animals
That GE salmon could cause sharp losses across the existing salmon industry is only the beginning of the problems potentially unleashed by the FDA’s disturbing shortsightedness. There has never been a genetically engineered animal approved for use in the U.S. food supply, but once the FDA approves GE salmon, it sets a precedent for other genetically engineered animals to follow.
Imagine a genetically modified cow with triple growth hormone genes, carrying muscles (meat) so large that it can’t even stand on its own feet. It is grown in a “cow factory” where it suffers every day from the pain of its unnatural existence. It never sees the outdoors or experiences a single day of freedom in a pasture. Instead, it is fed antibiotics and GMO feed crops through a system of tubes, much like the imprisoned characters in The Matrix. The sole purpose of its life is to grow premium steaks and ground beef, sold by a company that genetically engineers animals to create greed-driven food profits without a single thought about the suffering of the animal itself.
This is exactly what could be unleashed by the FDA’s decision on GE salmon. Only it wouldn’t end with just cows: Imagine genetically modified pigs, chickens and lambs, all distorted into artificial meat-producing forms to satisfy corporate profits.
Vaccines from sheep flesh
And it won’t end with just food, either. Scientists are already experimenting with genetically modified animals who “grow” pharmaceuticals. Imagine a factory farm of sheep whose bodies are tapped to produce vaccines or hormone drugs.
This is the sick, demented world to which the biotechnology industry is now looking for the next wave of profits. Fueled by arrogant greed and a deeply-rooted disrespect for the natural world (and the suffering of sentient beings, which include farm animals), they will pursue bottom-line profits by any means necessary… even if it means playing God with the genes of animals and giving rise to Franken-animals that experience tremendous pain and suffering while being grown for food. (Much like in The Matrix, once again.)
The pain and suffering committed by factory farms today is more than enough reason to consider giving up all conventionally-raised meat products, by the way. But it could get far worse if the industry is allowed to start genetically engineering mutant animals designed to produce more meat (or milk) more quickly and with higher profits. And it all starts with GE salmon.
How do we even know, by the way, whether the genetically modified salmon who grow twice as fast as regular salmon experience some sort of unnatural pain as a result of their gene distortions? These gene modifications can, from another point of view, be described as a kind of “birth defect,” and some birth defects quite literally result in tremendous suffering for those being unfortunate enough to be affected by them.
Not surprisingly, the experience of the animal isn’t even being taken into account by the FDA! This agency, which is blind to the experience of animals, only cares about the impact of GE salmon on people who eat its flesh, not about the experience of the fish.
If this same lack of empathy is applied to future decisions regarding GE animals, it will only lead us down a dark path of Frankenfood misery, where humanity becomes the monster that creates horrific mutant animals to be grown and harvested in dark places, behind the closed doors of the sickening meat industry.
Action you can take right now
What can you do to stop this crime against nature? For starters, you can contact the FDA right now and tell them two things:
1) You oppose allowing GE salmon to be introduced into the food supply.
2) If it is approved, you support honest labeling of the salmon to indicate that it is genetically engineered.

Get ready to boycott salmon
If the FDA approves GE salmon, get ready to join NaturalNews in a nationwide boycott of salmon products.
As long as GE salmon is not honestly labeled, we will boycott salmon products, and we will coordinate with other non-profits who share our belief that consumers have a right to know what they’re buying and eating.
For the FDA to say that they refuse to require the honest labeling of GE salmon is an outrageous insult to consumer intelligence. It’s beyond an insult, actually: It’s more like a crime against the People because it consciously seeks to misinform the public about what they’re eating.
This demonstrates yet again how dangerous the FDA has actually become. Far from protecting consumers, the FDA has become the single greatest threat to the health and safety of the American people. This agency actively seeks to keep people in the dark about what they’re buying and eating. It is a purveyor of ignorance and disinformation, and it is engaged in a conspiracy to commit yet another crime against humanity (against the entire planet, actually) in order to protect biotech profits.
Why can’t the FDA just tell the truth and, at minimum, require that GE salmon be labeled as such?
Because being honest apparently isn’t in the agency’s genes. Maybe we need to genetically modify the FDA and insert some “truth hormone” proteins so it attains the ability to tell the truth. That would be a radical modification from the current behavior of the agency, wouldn’t it?
