Measles: Exploring The Past Before The Marketing Of Vaccines

Published

on

Did you grow up watching The Flintstones or The Brady Bunch? I know I did. These television programs were pretty popular in their day.

You might want to take a step back in time and reminisce by watching these hilarious measles episodes joking about how trivial getting the measles was, way back before the vaccine was invented. And maybe it will get you thinking, ”why all the fuss today?” Is measles something to be terrified of?

I’m sure we all can agree, most grandparents would say that they caught measles and that they “got through it just fine.” And our mothers can probably also remember measles and chicken pox parties, where people would invite their kids to be around other children who had either of these two viruses. It was nothing to be scared of. Sure, if you didn’t treat it correctly, it could make some children’s symptoms worsen, and it’s definitely not good for adults to get measles (hence the parties!) but all in all, measles was seen as something that was very common and nothing to be frightened of. Please try and view the video first, then read on.

Why are things are so different now?  We’ve all become very scared of contracting any illness. Even the flu makes people rush out and get vaccines that have actually been proven to harm (and can even kill). What’s worse, not only are they harmful, they really do not work very well.

Where Does The Fear Come From?

What has caused such a huge change in our attitudes towards the measles?

Cathy Jameson from Age Of Autism wrote the following in her article A Very Brady Measles:

Things are so different today. Illness is a bad word. What used to be called a common childhood disease is now viewed as impending doom. Fevers, rashes and sicknesses that last longer than a few hours are treated like the plague. Anything that can be passed from one person to another is a death sentence. These types of exaggerations fill many news stories.  With those exaggerations, as well as how other fear tactics are used, including the mantra that the almighty vaccine is the answer no matter the question, no wonder people feel anxious about disease today!

Cathy also wrote about the Disney ‘outbreak’ that has many people up in arms:

I don’t know why a growing number of news sources that are reporting on diseases are resorting to such exaggeration. Take the latest disease story in the news, the Disney measles story. Pre-vaccine hysteria, we recognized that after a childhood illness ran its course that natural immunity would be gained.  Nowadays, rather than promote natural immunity, we’re being ushered and demanded to get vaccines. I have to ask why, especially why the measles vaccine (MMR), when this particular vaccine clearly isn’t working.

We know that it isn’t working because several of the people who came down with the measles in the recent Disney outbreak were vaccinated. That fact – that vaccinated individuals got the disease that their vaccine was supposed to prevent – negates the current media feeding frenzy. You’d think focusing on those vaccinated individuals who fell ill is a more of a breaking news story. You’d think that because we’re told so many times that vaccines are always life-saving, safe and effective, effective in preventing disease. Evidently, they are not.

The Chart Used in Brady Bunch TV program to highlight what the Brady kids had caught.

“Over $3 billion has been paid out to victims of vaccine reactions. Not $3 million. Not $30 million. Not even $300 million, but $3 billion. Are we paying that much money to victims of pretend reactions? I think not.”  – Dr Bob Sears

Worried About Measles & Other Viruses?

It personally boggles my mind that most people today are so frightened of common viruses that “everyone got” years ago, yet many don’t know that real health comes from what we eat, how much exercise we get, how we control our stress and how much Vitamin D we get.

But what can we expect when we have a medical system with doctors who don’t tend to learn more than about 12 hours (maybe I’m even stretching this amount!) of training to do with nutrition. And whilst they do mention the other things in their advice to patients, it’s not really emphasised in detail – eg. they will still prescribe a drug that might not be necessary when a lifestyle change may actually fix that concern.

Because doctors don’t receive much nutrition training, this of course, then effects what the media writes about nutrition and allows them to advertise these awful foods to begin with.

So because of this lack of education – generally speaking – many people often regularly eat junk food, always resort to medications (that can harm  the body with regular use), and don’t breastfeed their children for too long – or at all.  They also aren’t concerned about or don’t understand that chemicals are harming society, and just generally lead a very unhealthy lifestyle.

Yet they perhaps want to believe that a vaccine will take care of everything, instantly making them healthier individuals and immune to disease.

Ensure Adequate Levels of Vitamin A

There’s a lot we can do for ourselves and our children in relation to the measles. One is very simple and that is ensuring that we have adequate vitamin a levels.

Leon Chaitow wrote in his book  (published back in 1987 when measles deaths did occur) Vaccination and Immunisation: Dangers, Delusions and Alternatives about the evidence supporting vitamin a deficiences showing that:

  • those children that have the worst symptoms during and following measles have lowest levels of vitamin a
  • such children are the most likely develop eye symptoms during measles
  • they are also likely to have a fever above 40 degrees (104 F) and require hospitalisation
  • they are the children most likely to die from measles
  • supplementing with vitamin a dramatically reduces the risks of severe illness or death associated with measles
  • this has been demonstrated in Africa where a 700% reduction in children dying from measles followed with vitamin a supplementation

Therefore, it must be considered, we may be seeing these outbreaks happen today, partly due to simple vitamin a deficiencies. We know that many children aren’t eating good diets. That’s a fact. You only have to take a walk outside most cities and you will see overweight children who are clearly not having a good wholesome diet.  I often see children with dark circles under their eyes, sallow skin and just lack of ‘spark’ behind their eyes. If they don’t look healthy, chances are they are missing some pretty important nutrients.

Where Do You Get Vitamin A From In Diet?

As parents or as an individual, we can try and ensure we have good levels of vitamin a in our diets. High levels of  vitamin a – in the form of retinol (the most important source) –  is found in many animal products such as:

  • grass fed organic egg yolks
  • grass fed organic butter
  • grass fed organic liver
  • fermented cod liver oil
  • grass fed organic full fat cream

It is found in plant sources too, but according to research its not the correct source.

Author Lauren, of the Empowered Sustanance wrote:

When you hear think about vitamin A foods, what sources come to mind? Most nutrition books and internet sources list the following as excellent sources of vitamin A:

  1. Carrots
  2. Sweet potatoes
  3. Dark leafy greens
  4. Cantaloupe
  5. Bell peppers

Although taken for granted as ideal vitamin A foods, these plants provide only the precursor to vitamin A, carotenoids. Interestingly, we need to be consuming true vitamin A foods, foods containing retinol, to meet our vitamin A requirements.

The most important fact about vitamin A is the difference between retinoids and cartenoids. The vitamin A from animal sources is retinoids, also called retinol, while plant source vitamin A is carotenoids, such as beta carotene.

Carrot-Nutri-Red-Sugarsnax-Purplesnax

Think Carrots Are A Good Source Of Vitamin A? Not So

Animal sources of retinol is bio-available, which means the body can utilize it. The vitamin A from plant sources, in contrast, must first be converted to retinol to be useful in the body. This poses two big problems.

First, when we are in pristine health, it requires at least six units of carotenes to convert into 1 unit of retinol (source). To put this in perspective, that means one must eat 4 1/2 pounds of carrots to potentially get the amount of useable A as in 3 oz. of beef liver (source). What happens if we have digestive issues, hormone imbalances, or other health problems? It requires even more units of carotene in the ratio.

Second,  the carotene-to-retinol conversion is HIGHLY compromised. As a matter of fact, this conversion is negligible for many individuals. This conversion is virtually insignificant:

  • In infants
  • In those with poor thyroid function (hypothyroidism)
  • In those with diabetes
  • In those who are on a low fat diet or have a history of low fat dieting
  • In those who have compromised bile production (think: gallbladder and digestive issues) (source and source)

This information is most certainly not going to appeal to vegans. However, I would suggest you get tested yourself for vitamin a levels and your children as well if they too are following a vegan diet.

Adequate Vitamin D Is A Must For Healthy Kids And Adults

Vitamin D

We also now know that many people are incredibly deficient in vitamin d, which is vital for good health and a strong immune system. I’d personally go as far as saying that vitamin d is essential for the health of every single part of the body. Concerningly deficiencies are now a huge problem found in children.

Sunlight is the best source, but due to the vilification of the sun years ago, many people always slather themselves with toxic sunscreens before they have any sun exposure at all.  These creams do a fantastic job of blocking out the bad and good rays.

So where are people getting their vitamin d from if they are always covering up? Diet is another area that we can tray and get some more from:

 

Portobello-Mushrooms

mushrooms – a source of vitamin d

Common Foods That Contain Vitamin D

  • eggs
  • mushrooms
  • oily fish
  • cod liver oil
  • orange juice
  • beef liver

another way to get Vitamin D is from:

Supplementing with Vitamin D

In regards to supplementation, I would like to share what Dr. Mercola wrote on his website:

If You Opt for a Vitamin D Supplement…

If your circumstances don’t allow you to access the sun or a high-quality tanning bed, then you really only have one option if you want to raise your vitamin D, and that is to take a vitamin D supplement (make sure it is vitamin D3, not D2). I recommend regularly testing your levels to make sure you’re staying within the therapeutic range of 50-70 ng/ml year-round. The Society Clinical Practice Guidelines Committee recommends the following dosages. Keep in mind that these guidelines are thought to allow most people to reach a vitamin D level of 30 ng/ml, which many still consider suboptimal for disease prevention.

  • Neonates: 400 to 1,000 IUs per day
  • Children one year of age and above: 600 to 1,000 IUs per day
  • Adults: 1,500 to 2,000 IUs per day

GrassrootsHealth offers a helpful chart showing the average adult dose required to reach healthy vitamin D levels based upon your measured starting point. Many experts agree that 35 IUs of vitamin D per pound of body weight could be used as an estimate for your ideal dose, but you’ll need to test your levels to find out the dosage that’s right for you.

Get Your Levels Checked

Another way to know whats going on with your body is to get some testing done in relation to your levels of vitamin d. You can ask your doctor to do a screening for you (you may have to be quite firm about your request) or you could purchase a kit like this one.

When suffering from the measles another great way to treat it is with Vitamin C.  Dr Suzanne Humphries writes:

Vitamin C is one of the safest medical wonders on the planet. The following link will show you Vitamin C’s success as published in medical literature since the 1940′s.  It has been put down by the FDA and much disbelief exists within the medical community.  Link to article HERE.  However, I and many others have first-handedly enjoyed the nontoxic benefits of sodium ascorbate.  It is important to use high enough doses and the right formulation to achieve best results.

AscorbateWeb

The reason conventional medical doctors are not taught about the mechanisms of action and benefits of vitamin C in medical school, is that if they knew about it, then not only would a raft of other drugs have been unnecessary, but there would not be serious whooping cough or even deaths.  Vitamin A and C would render measles really easy to treat. You’d never see meningococcal complications, because all people suspected of having it, would immediately be put on IV vitamin C and there would be no coagulopathy at all.  Vitamin C antidotes DIC, the coagulopathy.  The ACIP and it’s cronies wouldn’t be able to use meningococcal complications and deaths as emotional blackmail to get people to vaccinate, because people wouldn’t be scared of infections any more.

Why The Huge Rise In Autoimmune Disorders?

If vaccines were truly making us ‘healthier’ and have stronger immune systems, why is their such a huge increase in auto-immune disorders that we have?

It is estimated that in the US alone, 50 million citizens have an autoimmune disorder. And guess how many different ones there are these days?

Between 80-100.

This is beyond shocking.

I know, to achieve good health, it can cost more, you do have to spend more money on wholesome food, on supplements and other preventative measures, but the long term goal is to not need to suffer later in life – and cost the health system (which uses our taxes to pay for it) so much money.

There’s so much an individual can do to help their immune system become very efficient, it just takes a little interest and serious effort. It’s actually got to become a way of life.  We just need more education on how to do this.

Measle Vaccines Spreads Measles

Another thing people don’t seem to understand about the measles vaccine is that it can spread the disease to others. Because it contains a “live virus,” most people who are recently vaccinated can be contagious for approximately 2 weeks. This is called “shedding.” This is not hearsay, this is a fact and is often clearly stated on vaccine inserts.

In New York City, a 22 year old fully vaccinated adult developed measles and then unknowingly gave the virus to four other people, two of which had also been vaccinated.

Despite kids today being given up to 3 doses of the MMR vaccine, it’s also not guaranteed that they will still be immune later in life  – which is pretty frightening to know considering catching measles as an adult is certainly a lot riskier.

Vaccines that can shed

 

Measles Vaccine Reactions Not So Rare

If you check out the MMR’s adverse reactions that have been listed after they conducted their study, the list is enormous – too much to list here – but it contains some very frightening noted effects.

However, I also found some concerning information, again, found in Merck’s own product information PDF:

  • As for any vaccine, vaccination with M-M-R II may not result in protection in 100% of vaccines.
  • M-M-R II has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential, or potential to impair fertility.

So basically they’re saying that they can’t guarantee that the MMR vaccine will provide us with immunity and that it – or any other vaccines on the market – have not been studied to disprove if this vaccine can cause us long term problems such as cancer, or if it could cause other health problems or even effect your ability to conceive a child.

Not So Safe & Not So Effective

Really, they haven’t proven anything in regards to its safety. Sure, some will say, “My kids had it but they are fine, they haven’t had a reaction,” but how do we know that in the long term they might not develop cancer because of this vaccine?

There’s simply no proof from them to say this won’t happen.

Is this a good way to study something that is being commonly dolled out to all of our kids? And yes, the vaccines have been around long enough now for a study to be performed, but pharmaceutical companies simply don’t do these long-term studies.

I don’t know about you, but this is not good enough at all. If something is staunchly recommended for my child to take, I want real proof that it’s safe and that it’s going to work. What I don’t want is a long list of possible adverse reactions that have been recorded during trials and since reported to VAERS.

The possible effects from catching measles naturally (when treated the correct way)  is often so minimal.

The vaccine has far more possible side effects.

Court Documents Filed Against Merck

What About Deaths From Measles?

In fact, there have been some pretty serious adverse reactions due to the vaccine recorded with VAERS, namely deaths. Yet it’s questionable anyone has died from the measles in the last TEN years.  In the last year, Dr. Anne Schuchat, the director of CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, made this statement in an Associated Press story published by Fox News on April 25, 2014:

“There have been no measles deaths reported in the U.S. since 2003.

6a00d834515c5469e201bb07ede2bb970d-500wi

Does it really look like the measles vaccine caused measles to decrease?

Just this past week a news story came out of Berlin, that a toddler has recently died from the measles. When you look at the story though, there is actually no proof this is true. There is no interview with the parents, no photo, nothing. Also if it true, they have said in the reports that he is an asylum seeker from Bosnia.  Now, if you have a think about what that could tell about his health – it could mean that he a) hasn’t been eating very well or very much b) has been living in poverty c) suffering a lot of stress.

The reports also say that he was suffering from some other disease as well. With what some of us know about the close ties between the media and pharmaceutical industry – this story could be more of a fear tactic. Regardless even if true, it is one death. Not ten, not twenty, not thirty but one. In ten years.

However, the amount of deaths recorded after receiving measles vaccines is up to approximately 108.  And it’s always best to understand the fact that not all vaccine injuries are ever recorded. If a doctor denies to a patient that the vaccine could have caused their child’s death (and most do), sometimes parents just believe that and don’t press the issue any further. So the real amount of deaths from the measles vaccine, could in fact be much higher.”

The odds are more on the side of receiving an injury from the vaccine, than from dying from measles.

This chart below is from Medalerts.org, a public database anyone can access to see what reactions have been recorded.

There have been 4 different measles vaccines in use over the last 10 years.  Not all were combined vaccines (such as the one used solely today – the MMRII)

VAERS-Measles-Vaccine-Deaths-600

Deaths From Measles Vaccines – MedAlert data base

  “It has killed no one. It can kill about 1 person in every 1000 cases. Will someone die of measles in the United States in the years to come? Maybe. But it hasn’t killed anyone in the past 15 years or more.” – Dr Bob Sears

Merck Lawsuit For Fraud

Oh, and lets not forget that Merck is being sued by two former scientists who filed a law suit back in 2010 claiming that Merck was trying to:

defraud the United States through Merck’s ongoing scheme to sell the government a mumps vaccine that is mislabeled, misbranded, adulterated and falsely certified as having an efficacy rate that is significantly higher than it actually is.

So not only do we have a vaccine whose own manufacturer admits that:

a) they can’t prove its vaccine is efficient for everyone

b) it can spread the disease to other people through ‘shedding’ process

c) they can’t say it won’t give you cancer, cause infertility or other health problems

We can also now say that it’s pretty likely they:

d) have committed medical fraud.

This is all so very comforting to know.

Are YOU Fully Vaccinated?

If you are a staunch believer in vaccines, can I get you to ask yourself this question:

Are you “fully vaccinated” for every disease that you are so worried about?

Have a good think about this, because most adults are not. This is because back in our early years, we didn’t have such a huge jam-packed schedule of vaccines. So chances are, technically you are “at risk” for catching disease.

Have a look at the vaccine comparison chart below and see what you would have received and what you are missing. There are about 25 vaccines I haven’t personally been given, but have I caught any of those things? Nope.

I do hope this gets you thinking though, that no, you are NOT vaccinated for all of these things, but you haven’t caught all of the diseases. You’re here and alive and well.

To continue being so adamant that ”everyone” should be vaccinated (with no personal choice on this matter) is an attitude which may in fact make you quite hypocritical.

Box Top$ For Education Is Not Supporting Education (Here’s Why)

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The Box Top$ For Education program has kicked off yet again with messaging to suggest it helps schools across the country. However, when you go beyond the surface it's far from what it seems and promotes itself as.

  • Reflect On:

    What labels and initiatives do you let impact your behavior as a consumer?

National Box Tops for Education Week kicks off coast-to-coast fundraising.  For over 20 years, the Box Tops for Education program has provided families a way to help raise money for their school. The program was created to “help support education and benefit American schools” by providing a small amount of money from each item purchased. Does this program truly benefit education and support learning?

Who’s Really Benefitting?

General Mills, Inc., an American multi-billion-dollar multinational manufacturer, and marketer of branded consumer food is genuinely the benefactor. Giving a school 10 cents for every item bought is a drop in the bucket compared to the amount of money General Mills earns at the expense of our health. At first glance, it appears this company has been extremely generous, donating $719,000,000 in the last 20 years. If you do the math and divide each year’s totals by the 80,000 plus schools in the United States, it equates to a whopping $449 per school. As one can see, General Mills has done a fantastic marketing job, encouraging our kids to eat their garbage. Sure, we can buy school supplies, Kleenex tissues, and a few toxic cleaning products on the list, but what’s the fun in that.

Crappy, Overly-Processed “Food-Like” Products Do Not Support Learning

Diet and nutrition deeply affect a child’s learning ability. Sadly the qualifying products on the Box Top list including Hamburger Helper, Lucky Charms, Pillsbury Toaster Strudel, Fruit Roll-Ups, and alike do not achieve this.

Did You Know? The ingredient list for strawberry fruit roll-ups doesn’t include strawberries!

Instead, it contains genetically modified corn syrup and dextrose (refined sugar derived from GM corn, and artificial food dyes – red 40, yellow 5&6, blue 1 (derived from coal tar and petroleum).

Nutrient-rich homemade meals are being replaced with boxed, frozen, and canned foods due to higher prices of healthy food, our hectic lifestyles, and brainwashing tactics, such TV ads and campaigns such as the Box Top program.

The Truth

Processed food lacks essential whole food nutrients the brain needs to function correctly. They contain ingredients such as genetically modified corn syrup, refined sugar, synthetic salt, unhealthy fats, artificial colors and flavors, chemical preservatives, and unrevealed heavy metals and pesticides. All of these ingredients work against a child’s ability to learn. 

Pesticides and antibiotics found in food today are detrimental to our healthy gut microbiota which are essential to brain function and development. Both are designed to kill bugs. So, we are destroying our gut bugs that help regulate and keep our immune systems strong and healthy to support our brain.

Studies have also shown that the high sugar content of processed foods may contribute to diabetes, which can affect a student’s learning in many ways. Blood sugar levels can affect cognitive functioning and school performance. According to many scientific journals and newsletters from prestigious universities like Harvard Medical School, processed food consumption are also linked to neurodevelopmental disorders, sleep problems, hyperactivity, attention; and mood symptoms including depression and anxiety.

Boxed foods are also linked to other severe health issues like obesity and high blood pressure. Two extensive European studies published by BMJ in May 2019 links processed foods with a range of health risks, including cardiovascular death. Another scientific study conducted by scientists from Yale University in the U.S. and the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg in Germany indicated that “excess refined salt used in fast-food restaurants and the over-consumption of sodium from other processed foods may be one of the environmental factors driving the increased incidence of autoimmune diseases.”  Processed foods can also trigger cancer.  The researchers warn that the rapidly increasing consumption of ultra-processed foods “may drive an increasing burden of cancer in the next decades.”

Don’t Be A Victim To The Marketing Ploy

We are poisoning ourselves, and the consequences are starting to show with the incredible rise of neurodevelopmental, mental illness, and diseases like cancer, asthma, diabetes, and many autoimmune disorders. So, let’s forgo the Box Top’s and find healthier and more productive ways to raise money for our schools. These big ag companies have no interest in changing current practices no matter how sick they’re making all of us. Or how many medications we are all dependent on. These companies are generating trillions of dollars of their products, and creating customers for life. General Mills and most food companies are owned by Monsanto/Bayer. They are adhering to FDA guidelines and are not violating any federal laws because they fund the FDA (Industry User Fees).

Fighting big lobbyist groups can seem like an impossibility for most of us, so we need to take our power back by voting with our dollar. We must refuse to purchase products with barcodes that are making 10 cents for our schools. And choose healthy instead.

Why Vegan and not Vegetarian? Vietnamese Monk Thich Nhat Hanh Answers The Question

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Vietnamese Monk Thich Nhat Hanh explains why he chooses not to consume any meat or dairy products, and points towards the overwhelmingly cruel food industry.

  • Reflect On:

    What gives us the right to torture animals, steal their babies, abuse them simply for our consumption? Where is our compassion, morality and empathy? Have we been made and brainwashed to believe that it's ok?

The most heartbreaking thing to see and to witness is an innocent benevolent being getting tortured and suffering. This is the realty of eating animal products today. Billions of animals are raised for slaughter every single year, and the overwhelmingly large majority of them go through horrific and terrifying experiences. It’s hard to imagine how anybody could eat or wear the clothes of diseased animals knowing what they went through. It’s also hard to believe that anybody who does eat or purchase products that have used animals in their manufacturing process would do that kind of “labour” themselves.

The truth is that many people still don’t know what these beings are going through. It’s absolutely heartbreaking, immoral, and unethical. Morality, empathy, and love are all emotions that need to return to planet Earth, and as long as we have multiple industries exploiting animals, that can’t happen.

If you’re unaware of what these animals are going through on a daily basis, a recent PETA investigation on two of the world’s top cashmere exporters revealed extreme cruelty, including the violent killing of cashmere goats. You can read more about it and see some footage of that here, if you’re interested.

You can view more examples of graphic footage in the trailer of “The Buddha Bowl,” a documentary in the making featuring personalities and some of the most influential and renowned spiritual leaders from all over the world sharing their perspectives on veganism. These include viewpoints from Buddha himself and from spiritual leaders from the past and present, totalling about 30 interviews on animal rights, environmental issues and health.

One of the people in that documentary is Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Buddhist monk who is recognized as a global spiritual leader, poet and peace activist. The video below is not part of the documentary listed above, but from an interview taken a few years ago at a conference.

Are We Even Designed To Eat Meat?

There is no doubt our world is becoming more awake, aware, and compassionate. Millions of people around the world have transitioned towards a plant-based diet. This represents the kind of compassion and empathy our world needs more of, and this diet can do nothing but benefit human health, the planet, and the animals.

It’s no secret that eating meat and animal products is destroying the Earth, as clearing land for animal grazing and slaughter is one of the leading causes of deforestation, and factory farms are an environmental disaster.

More people are also starting to become aware of plant-based diets and their health benefits.

A recent study conducted by researchers in California and France found that meat protein is associated with a very sharp increased risk of heart disease, while protein from nuts and seeds is actually beneficial for the human heart. The study is titled “Patterns of plant and animal protein intake are strongly associated with cardiovascular mortality: The Adventist Health Study-2 cohort,”

It’s one of many studies that’ve emerged over the years showing the benefits of plant-based diets and their ability to reverse diseases. On the other hand, many studies published have shown how the consumption of meat has the exact opposite effect.

Below is a clip from a recent CETV episode where CE founder Joe Martino and I go into the discussion a little deeper, with a specific focus on plant-based protein compared to meat protein. If interested, you can watch the full episode here by signing up for your free trial. CETV is a platform that we created to combat the censorship we’ve experienced over the past couple of years.

I also go into this type of discussion, if you’re interested in reading about it, in an article I recently published: “Another Study Suggests Humans Are Not Designed To Eat Meat.”

The Takeaway

Human beings are born with compassion and empathy. What we are doing to animals on our planet today, and how many continue to ignore it and be unaffected by it, is simply as a result of mass brainwashing and marketing by big food corporations. The truth is that we’ve been taught to ignore it, we’ve been taught to believe that it’s OK and it’s our right to do this to others who share the planet with us. No child would ever stand for such a thing unless they were taught to do so. It’s the same thing as racism, we are not born with it, we are taught it. I urge all those who are reading this to do their research into where the vast majority of our food and clothes are coming from, watch what these animals are going through, look into their eyes and and feel what they are feeling.

The ability to feel and understand the emotions of others, animal or human, is a HUGE and VITAL step towards creating a better world and a better overall human experience.

Food Brands Owned By Monsanto

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Below is a list of food brands currently owned by Monsanto. The list was put out by Vocal Media.

  • Reflect On:

    Are the foods we eat safe? Are the chemicals we eat ingest with them safe? A lot of science has shown otherwise, so what's really going on here.

Monsanto is a biotech corporation that was founded in the early 1900s. They produce genetically modified foods (GMOs) and many chemicals that are sprayed onto our food, including several pesticides. A recent study published in the journal Environmental Research titled, Organic diet intervention significantly reduces urinary pesticide levels in U.S. children and adults” outlined the issue with these chemicals, many of which were actually originally designed by Monsanto as warfare weapons to be used as nerve agents.

The study highlighted that diet is the primary source of pesticide exposure in both children and adults. It found that an organic diet significantly reduced neonicotinoid, OP pyrethroid, 2,4-D exposure, with the greatest reduction observed in malathion, clothianidin, and chlorpyrifos.

The researchers noted that all of us are exposed “to a cocktail of toxic synthetic pesticides linked to a range of health problems from our daily diets.” They explained how “certified organic food is produced without these pesticides,” and attempted to answer the question, “Can eating organic really reduce levels of pesticides in our bodies?”

They tested four American families who typically don’t eat organic food to find out.

First, we tested the levels of pesticides in their bodies on a non-organic diet for six days. We found 14 chemicals representing potential exposure to 40 different pesticides in every study participant. These included organophosphates, pyrethroids, neonicotinoids and the phenoxy herbicide 2,4-D. Some of the pesticides we found are linked to increased risk of cancer, infertility, learning disabilities, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and more. (source)

This is one of multiple studies that’ve shown the benefits of switching to an organic diet.

When it comes to GMOs, there is a wealth of information that shows corruption with regard to their approval. A great resource to learn more about that is  called Altered Genes, Twisted Truth: How the Venture to Genetically Engineer Our Food Has Subverte.

The stranglehold that corporations like Monsanto have on governments and government agencies like the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is quite strong. Many senior CDC scientists actually stressed this, but there are several other examples of this type of corruption.

For example, glyphosate, an active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, was recently re-licensed and approved by European Parliament. However, MEPs found the science given to them was plagiarized, full of industry science written by Monsanto. You can read more about that here.

Glyphosate has been implicated in thousands of cancer cases, and Monsanto has already paid out billions of dollars to multiple victims. Dewayne Johnson is one of multiple examples.

Many mainstream foods were also found to be contaminated with glyphosate. Here’s a list of children’s foods that’ve been contaminated.

Monsanto was recently acquired by Bayer Pharmaceuticals. Big food and big pharma are one in the same. They own the press, they own politicians, and they practically dictate government policy. There are a multitude of examples that illustrate the massive amount of corruption that drives these corporations, yet they are still operating despite the fact that the products they offer have been proven to be extremely damaging to human health as well as the environment.

Those of you who have been involved in the past in the battle to protect our children from poorly made vaccines or toxic chemicals in our food or in our water know the power of these industries and how they’ve undermined every institution in our democracy that is supposed to protect little children from powerful, greedy corporations. Even the pharmaceutical companies have been able to purchase congress. They’re the largest lobbying entity in Washington D.C.. They have more lobbyists in Washington D.C. than there are congressman and senators combined. They give twice to congress what the next largest lobbying entity is, which is oil and gas… Imagine the power they exercise over both republicans and democrats. They’ve captured them (our regulatory agencies) and turned them into sock puppets. They’ve compromised the press… and they destroy the publications that publish real science. – Robert F. Kennedy (source)

Today, annual protests are held against the agrochemical company to demonstrate the public’s displeasure with Monsanto’s practices. Not only do the protests illustrate how many people are against genetically modified organisms, but they also represent how many people are against the dangerous pesticides Monsanto produces to kill off pests and insects.

Here are some of the brands that Monsanto works with.

The Takeaway

At the end of the day, despite the massive amount of corruption and illegal activities these companies have engaged in, we are the ones buying their products and consuming their foods. All we have to do is make better choices–we can switch to organic produce, we can do our research and purchase from ethical companies, and we can refuse to spray our lawns with herbicides.
