Trust a cow . . . . or a chemist?

When it comes to the debate of butter vs margarine there is a wealth of information on the internet. Unfortunately, there are times when even the professionals say things that challenge common sense, or support theories from the dark ages. For example, when they tell people that vegetable oil laden with emulsifiers, colourants and artificial ingredients commonly known as margarine is better for you than butter.
This is a topic that could potentially take over our blog so for this article, let’s simply look at how each is made:

BUTTER:
Butter is made by churning fresh or fermented cream or milk, to separate the butterfat from the buttermilk. Put butterfat in a container and use.
The End

MARGARINE :
This is like a science experiment so I’ll do this in point form. Stage 1 is called refinement where the oil is extracted from seeds or beans and refined. Stage 2 is called processing where oil and other materials are added and made into margarine. Continue reading Trust a cow . . . . or a chemist?

Barack Obama Condones Poisoning His People.

Barack_Obama_condones_poisoning

What do you think about this very recent letter from President Barack Obama? He sent a letter to the grand daughter of the late biologist Norman Borlaug and creator of altered strains of wheat and other plants, including encouraging the use of pesticides by farmers world wide. With a letter like this, do you think we’ll ever get the same basic fundamental human rights that 65 other countries get around the world? We have the right to know what’s in our food and should demand our President keep his promise to label GMO’s?

Monsanto Exposed

Screen Shot 2014-04-13 at 1.55.24 AM

A Brief and incomplete list of some products/services/start ups by Monsanto, the largest Bio tech agricultural company in the world. (references are in parentheses after each product, and we urge you to read them as there is a wealth of other knowledge to be gleaned)

The company’s first product was the artificial sweetener saccharin and later aspartame (NutraSweet) Sold to Coca- Cola (1,2,3)

  • Aspirin (Largest Producer up to 1980) (3)
  • Sulphuric acid. (3)
  • Polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB’s) (3)
  • Assisted in the development of the first nuclear weapons. (2,3,4)
  • “All” laundry detergent (2)
  • Polyurethanes (2)
  • DDT (2)
  • Agent Orange (2)
  • L‑dopa, which is currently the main drug used to treat (unsuccessfully) Parkinson’s disease. (2)
  • Acetic acid (diluted acetic acid is often used in descaling agents) alsoin vinegar. (2)
  • Astro Turf (2)
  • The first company to start mass production of (visible) light emitting diodes (LEDs), using gallium arsenide phosphide (2)
  • Monsanto scientists became the first to modify a plant cell in 1982. (2)
  • Monsanto conducted the first field tests of genetically engineered crops. (2)
  • Celecoxib (with a list of disastrous side effects) (2)
  • Bovine somatotropin (artificial growth hormone for cows) (2)
  • Generated the first transgenic varieties of cotton, soybeans, peanuts,maize seed (2)
  • Flavr Savr tomato (the first commercially grown genetically engineered food to be granted a license for human consumption.) (2)
  • Monsanto Choice Genetics (GM Pigs) (2)
  • Glyphosate herbicides( kills grass and weeds) (2)
  • Genetic use restriction technology AKA Terminator technology ( prevents plants from reseeding forcing farmers to purchase new seeds every season) (2,3,4)
  • Monsanto sued the Pilot Grove Cooperative Elevator in Pilot Grove, Missouri, on the grounds that by cleaning harvested seeds covered by Monsanto’s patents so that farmers could replant them. (2)
  • Hires Blackwater (worlds largest mercenary army) they did the dirty for the USA in Iraq and Iran (1,2,3,4,5,6)
  • Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH) This genetically modified hormone was developed by Monsanto to be injected into dairy cows to produce more milk. (2,3)
  • Roundup. Worlds top selling herbicide (2,3)
  • Dioxin. Chemical pesticides (2,3)

As you can see there are a large amount of products in this small list that are and have been banned AND are responsible for hundreds of thousands of human fatalities, not counting the animal and plant population genocide they practice.

Is this a company you would trust with YOUR food?

This is just the tip of the iceberg. Do yourself a favor and Google some of the products, if that does not convince you to go organic then you must be an employee of them or hold shares . . .

P.S
Why would a “food” company hire the worlds largest mercenary army?
