the amount of allowable glyphosate in oilseed crops including flax, soybeans, and canola, will be increased from 20 parts per million (ppm) to 40 ppmover 100,000 times the amount needed to induce breast cancer cells. But they aren’t stopping there. The EPA is also increasing limits on allowable glyphosate in food crops, from 200 ppm to 6,000 ppm.

The EPA made this announcement on May 1 and gave until July 1 for people to weigh in with objections and requests for hearings. According to Regulations.gov, where announcements like this are shared, it was done to allow you a “voice in federal decision-making”. Unfortunately, they didn’t exactly shout this decision from the rooftops, and now that July is drawing to a close and the deadline for objections is long-passed, people are finally catching wind.

80%-20% Alkaline forming vs Acid forming Diet

`Organic~
I don't consume:
*Dairy
*Whole grains
*Refined sugars
*Table salt
*Vegetable oils
*Processed/Fast foods
*Genetically Modified Foods (GMOs)
As well as the pesticides/herbicides that come with them

My philosophy: Less externally, more internally

Even taking long hot showers in chemically treated tap water is too harsh for acne prone skin

The U. S. government is at it again, "protecting you" from healthy, local food from small producers by imposing rules impossible for small producers to afford but easy for the giant producers of the crap that's been making us all sick and practitioners of other industrial practices that deplete the soils and ruin our water ways and produce nutrionally void antibiotic & pesticide ridden food.

"Love your local farms, farmers markets and CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture)? They could be in trouble thanks to burdensome new rules proposed under the Food Safety & Modernization Act (FSMA)."

Link to petition to the FDA and summary of some of the acts proposals. The FDA is accepting feedback until November 15. Do it now.

You have one day left to tell the FDA what you think of their proposed new Food Safety regulations that will harm small farm, local, organic & naturally raised food. They add expense small farmers won't be able to meet. And are incompatible with natural, permaculture practices and diversified polyculture farms. The kind we need more of.

Read about it here:

http://www.youngfarmers.org/fda-extends-food-safety-commenting-period-one-week/

Amongst the rules include regulations to keep pastured animals away from plants:

  • A nine-month interval between animal grazing and vegetable production would mean you can’t rotate animals and crops in a given year, even to bring pastured chickens in to clean up a field.
  • The complete incompatibility between the new rules and existing compost waiting periods in organic production (a 45-day waiting period on using compost could mean no compost on short-season greens like mesclun, not to mention no more side-dressing your plants within a month and a half of harvesting!)

About CAFO eggs vs eggs from pastured hens:

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2014/01/13/pastured-eggs.aspx?e_cid=20140113Z1A_DNL_art_1&utm_source=dnl&utm_medium=email&utm_content=art1&utm_campaign=20140113Z1A&et_cid=DM37714&et_rid=397297411

2/3 more vitamin A 3 times more vitamin E 2 times more omega-3 fatty acids 7 times more beta carotene.

and it looks like twice as K2 according to the chart of K2 sources showing a difference between an egg from the U.S. and an egg from the Netherlands. Presumable the egg from the U.S. is an ordinary one like you find in the supermarket for a $1 or so per dozen, which means CAFO and not fed it's natural diet which would include insects, worms, other small prey, and greens. K1 comes from greens. Then is converted to K2 by bacteria in the intestines. So the animal also needs healthy gut flora.

This article about how the toxic glyphosate accumulates in Roundupready Genetically Modified soybeans sites a European study on the nutritional content of Organic, conventional, & genetically modified soybeans grown in Iowa. Amongst the superior nutritional content of they organic soybeans, they found organically grown soybeans had a better lipid profile with less Omega 6 EFAs!

http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/roundup-accumulates-gmo-food-proving-its-lack-safety?utm_source=www.GreenMedInfo.com&utm_campaign=e4f91e280e-Greenmedinfo&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_193c8492fb-e4f91e280e-86969685




The new manuscript titled, "Compositional differences in soybeans on the market: Glyphosate accumulates in Roundup Ready GM soybeans," was submitted by a team of researchers from Norway and the United Kingdom who explored the compositional differences of 31 soybean batches from Iowa, USA, which consisted of three different types:

  1. Genetically modified, glyphosate-tolerant soy (GM-soy);
Unmodified soy cultivated using a conventional "chemical" cultivation regime; Unmodified soy cultivated using an organic cultivation regime.

Their analysis revealed the following discoveries:

  • "Organic soybeans showed the healthiest nutritional profile with more sugars, such as glucose, fructose, sucrose and maltose, significantly more total protein, zinc and less fibre than both conventional and GM-soy."
"Organic soybeans also contained less total saturated fat and total omega-6 fatty acids than both conventional and GM-soy." "GM-soy contained high residues of glyphosate and AMPA (mean 3.3 and 5.7mg/kg, respectively). Conventional and organic soybean batches contained none of these agrochemicals."

These Roundup Ready genetically modified foods were not created to feed more people, to produce higher yields, to need less water, etc. They were created to sell more Roundup! It's chemical companies doing this to sell more chemicals. Don't play along.

The best & easiest way to avoid genetically modified foods is to buy from small, local organic farmers. Small farms & growing a variety of real food everywhere is the way to feed the world.

Note the chart showing sources of K2 in foods and their amounts. Note the difference between a Dutch egg & an American one. Presumably an ordinary supermarket egg from CAFO hens. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitamin_K

See the difference! K2 is made by certain strains of E. Coli bacteria, btw. And our misguided industries are always trying to kill E Coli. And the animals make it by converting K1 which you get from greens. Free roaming, natural diet eating hens eat greens.

There have been no reputable studies to confirm genetically modified food is harmful to humans in any way.

"There is broad scientific consensus that food on the market derived from GM crops poses no greater risk to human health than conventional food."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetically_modified_food

I personally choose to rely on the scientific community rather than liberal agenda.

Sigh. I guess people always get scared shitless of things they can't understand.

^Fine You eat all the pesticides you want. I'll keep trying to avoid them as much as possible.

Sigh, some people want to buy whatever is sold to them rather than do some critical thinking. The issue is not that the food has been genetically modified. It's how exactly they modified it. Some might be ok. But the chemical companies either make them more toxic or make them capable of withstanding more toxins dumped on them and in the soil. It's the pesticides that end up in the food.

And then there's the issues with the environment, the royalties & copyrights, bullying, the lawsuits, the contamination of other corps and the monopoly of our food supply. Our media never reports on any of this. Sarah Palin is right about one thing. We do have a lamestream media.

Our food has become so industrialized and our agencies that are supposed to protect us are servants for the industry and are completely unreliable, I chose to rely on the European scientific community. As far as I am concerned, European University & hospital research is reputable. Research by Monsanto & the like owned firms and USDA, FDA, EPA is not. Especially considering the number of former Monsanto people that fill the FDA.

So, the Farm Bill has passed the senate and been sent to the President. Many farm & farmer groups I follow are declaring a victory because it does have some improvements for them. Or at least, didn't worsen prior regulations that harm small farmers growing vegetables & raising pastured animals.

But Center for Rural Affairs seems to have a more honest assessment;


What a roller coaster this farm bill has been! Yesterday, the Senate passed the final version of the bill, and it’s on it’s way to the President’s desk. Click here to see how your senators voted!

If signed into law (which is expected), we’ll be sending out a longer analysis next week. As a snapshot, here are some of the things this bill does:

  • Conservation - A mixed bag, the bill includes “conservation compliance”, which requires farmers receiving crop insurance premium subsidies to provide a minimum level of conservation; Sodsaver in 6 states; and cuts $4 billion from conservation programs, including limiting the Conservation Stewardship Program to 10 million new acres per year (a cut of 22%).
  • Subsidy Reform - In a huge blow, the final bill cut historic reforms to commodity program subsidies that had passed in both chambers of Congress. They actually increased the limit, and they cut “actively engaged” language, which would close the loopholes that allow large, wealthy farms to collect many multiples of the current payment limit.
  • Rural Development - Though funding for rural programs is dangerously low, the bill includes funding for two of our high priority program - the Value Added Producer Grant program and the Rural Microentrepreneur Assistance program.
  • Beginning Farmers and Ranchers - There is continued funding for training and mentoring for beginning farmers and ranchers, with a new emphasis on veteran farmers.

Note they are still giving massive subsidies to wealthy large farmers growing the foods that make us sick. And of course, they cut Food Aid to all the 'takers.' Cuz that help feeding their kids has been keeping them from going to work, of course.

This is what you need to understand my friend. And you understand this by digging deep into these issues looking at both sides, watching independent documentaries, seeing the revolving door of Monsanto/FDA employees, etc. Hell even looking at the world around you and how farmers and the environment are being affected by GMO's negatively will give you an idea of the damage being done here.

The FDA is planning to basically ban most true organic farming practices involving things like compost & manure. This is going to make it impossible for small farmers using natural, sustainable processes. There will only be "Big Ag" organic which is absolutely not the same thing and allows pesticides and practices that are sometimes even worse than conventional farming practices. And Big Ag is where the contamination risks occur due to their unhealthy, unnatural practices. http://www.offthegridnews.com/2014/05/16/fda-to-ban-organic-farming/

The restrictions placed on compost would be so severe that it amounts to a ban. Organic farms that have livestock in close proximity to their crops also would find it difficult to clear government rules. Additionally, organic farms that use surface water would be forced to test their water regularly. All total, it could add up to many organic farms simply closing, unable to grow crops naturally or unable to afford the cost. It’s all part of the FDA’s food safety proposals that impact all farms – not just organic. But it’s the organic farms that will be hit hardest. Congress handed FDA the power in 2010 to regulate farms.

The single biggest issue is the mandatory waiting period in between application and harvesting the crops. For “untreated” amendments – which include not only manure, but also worm compost, compost teas with any additives, and any compost that doesn’t meet FDA’s specific standards – there is a 9-month waiting period. This makes these valuable soil amendments essentially unusable. Even fully treated compost would require a 45-day waiting period, limiting its usefulness.

These waiting periods are simply not needed. Organic farmers have been using both manure and compost for centuries, with excellent results. The certified organic standards have no waiting period on the use of compost, and only a 90-day to 120-day waiting period on the use of raw manure; and there have been no reported outbreaks from these practices. The FDA’s proposal would destroy one of the core tools for sustainable food production, for no good reason.

The soil is supposed to be alive, people!

And that's not all. Also covered in the article are rules for water not obtained from a municipal water supply. Basically will require them to pay the city to use chlorinated & flourinated city water on the soil/our food.

An Inconvenient Truth About Our Food

MAY 13, 2014

“Fed Up” is probably the most important movie to be made since “An Inconvenient Truth,” to which it’s related in a couple of ways. One of its producers is Laurie David, who also produced “An Inconvenient Truth.” Climate change, diet and agriculture are inexorably intertwined; we can’t tackle climate change without changing industrial agriculture, and we can’t change industrial agriculture without tackling diet.

Like “An Inconvenient Truth,” too, “

can be seen as propaganda. (As can “Farmland,” the beautifully shot movie that looks and feels like a Chevy commercial and seems to take as its underlying premise that most Americans mistrust, even hate, farmers. It’s more than a little defensive.)

“Fed Up” says: “Here is a problem, a problem that vested interests have no interest in solving, and a problem that must be dealt with if we’re interested in our survival. It’s something worth fighting about.”

The problem at hand, of course, is the standard American diet, especially in its current iteration, which took shape in the early 1980s after the commencement of the official “eat food lower in fat” recommendations. Those recommendations led to a 25 percent increase in the per-capita supply (and indeed consumption) of

calories. Many of those calories were from sugar,...

Yes, it’s fair to say, as Michael Pollan says in the movie, that “the government is subsidizing the obesity epidemic.”

How do you feel about this?

10 Big Food companies control the majority of the food you eat.

See the infographic.

http://newsone.com/3033958/all-the-groceries-in-your-supermarket-comes-from-10-companies/

Especially considering some have been recorded on video saying that they believe our food and water should be totally in the control of these large corporations. The CEO. Of Nestle believes they should control our dwindling water supply.

Do you really want a couple of corporations to control the world's food and water supply?

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

The real evils:

The Grocery Manufacturers Association GMA (Canadian equivalent Food and Consumer Products of Canada FCPC)

Big bullying, lobbying, marketing group consisting of all the makers of the cheap grain, sugar and chemical based processed foods that fill the supermarkets: Kraft, General Mills, Kellogs, Nestle, Conagra. The makers of the food that is making us all sick. They come up with the gimmicks and marketing terms to fool you into thinking their products are wholesome and natural. They lobby the government to keep grains, meat and dairy the base of the food pyramid and over half the new nutrition plate. They fund fights like those to prevent GMO labeling and ketchup a vegetable in school lunches. They file the lawsuits against the states trying to improve labeling and food content.

Many 'healthfood' and big name 'organic' brands are owned by these companies. Don't be fooled into paying more money for bad food. Big organic isn't the same as what's produced by small local farmers & gardeners.

As a related example of the dangers of big food: Remember the Mexican swine flu epidemic that started at a Mexican pig farm? Well it wasn't a Mexican pig farm. It was an American corporation owned CAFO factory farm in Mexico where they could get a way with even worse practices than they use in the United States. and pay workers lower wages, of course..

In an article about Soybeans
"Monsanto has steadfastly claimed that Roundup is harmless to animals and humans because the mechanism of action it uses (which allows it to kill weeds), called the shikimate pathway, is absent in all animals.

However, the shikimate pathway is present in bacteria, and that's the key to understanding how it causes such widespread systemic harm in both humans and animals.

Glyphosate causes extreme disruption of the microbe's function and lifecycle. What's worse, glyphosate preferentially affects beneficial bacteria, allowing pathogens to overgrow and take over.

In the interview above, Dr. Seneff reviews a variety of chronic diseases, explaining how glyphosate contributes to each condition"

"And, by the way, if you assume the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) is on top of this, and tests the food Americans eat for unsafe levels of glyphosate... don't. A USDA spokesman stated the agency had decided against testing for glyphosate in food because the tests are "extremely expensive… to do on a regular basis."7" citing a USDA pesticide report:
