Why We Need A Food Revolution & How “Hospital Farms” Could Fuel It

Original article source here:

The food industry may pose the single greatest threat to human health today. The amount of people suffering from obesity, heart disease, cancer, and other food-related illnesses has skyrocketed since we created what is known as the “global food system.”

As globalization increased and technology advanced, we went from growing our own food and raising our own cattle to developing a multi-trillion dollar business. Food has gone from representing a method of sustaining ourselves to becoming a global industry fueled by corruption and profitability. Most conventional food products, especially in North America, contain dairy, sugar, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), chemicals, toxins, and other ingredients harmful to human health.”

Coca-Cola Funds Scientists Who Shift Blame for Obesity Away From Bad Diets

Source Link:http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/08/09/coca-cola-funds-scientists-who-shift-blame-for-obesity-away-from-bad-diets/?smid=re-share&_r=0

From site:

Coca-Cola, the world’s largest producer of sugary beverages, is backing a new “science-based” solution to the obesity crisis: To maintain a healthy weight, get more exercise and worry less about cutting calories.

The beverage giant has teamed up with influential scientists who are advancing this message in medical journals, at conferences and through social media. To help the scientists get the word out, Coke has provided financial and logistical support to a new nonprofit organization called the Global Energy Balance Network, which promotes the argument that weight-conscious Americans are overly fixated on how much they eat and drink while not paying enough attention to exercise.

“Most of the focus in the popular media and in the scientific press is, ‘Oh they’re eating too much, eating too much, eating too much’ — blaming fast food, blaming sugary drinks and so on,” the group’s vice president, Steven N. Blair, an exercise scientist, says in a recent video announcing the new organization. “And there’s really virtually no compelling evidence that that, in fact, is the cause.”

Health experts say this message is misleading and part of an effort by Coke to deflect criticism about the role sugary drinks have played in the spread of obesity and Type 2 diabetes. They contend that the company is using the new group to convince the public that physical activity can offset a bad diet despite evidence that exercise has only minimal impact on weight compared with what people consume.

This clash over the science of obesity comes in a period of rising efforts to tax sugary drinks, remove them from schools and stop companies from marketing them to children. In the last two decades, consumption of full-calorie sodas by the average Americanhas dropped by 25 percent.

“Coca-Cola’s sales are slipping, and there’s this huge political and public backlash against soda, with every major city trying to do something to curb consumption,” said Michele Simon, a public health lawyer. “This is a direct response to the ways that the company is losing. They’re desperate to stop the bleeding.”

Coke has made a substantial investment in the new nonprofit. In response to requests based on state open-records laws, two universities that employ leaders of the Global Energy Balance Network disclosed that Coke had donated $1.5 million last year to start the organization.

Since 2008, the company has also provided close to $4 million in funding for various projects to two of the organization’s founding members: Dr. Blair, a professor at the University of South Carolina whose research over the past 25 years has formed much of the basis of federal guidelines on physical activity, and Gregory A. Hand, dean of the West Virginia University School of Public Health.

Records show that the network’s website, gebn.org, is registered to Coca-Cola headquarters in Atlanta, and the company is also listed as the site’s administrator. The group’s president, James O. Hill, a professor at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, said Coke had registered the website because the network’s members did not know how.

“They’re not running the show,” he said. “We’re running the show.”

Coca-Cola’s public relations department repeatedly declined requests for an interview with its chief scientific officer, Rhona Applebaum, who has called attention to the new group on Twitter.In a statement, the company said it had a long history of supporting scientific research related to its beverages and topics such as energy balance.

“We partner with some of the foremost experts in the fields of nutrition and physical activity,” the statement said. “It’s important to us that the researchers we work with share their own views and scientific findings, regardless of the outcome, and are transparent and open about our funding.”

Dr. Blair and other scientists affiliated with the group said that Coke had no control over its work or message and that they saw no problem with the company’s support because they had been transparent about it.

But as of last week, the group’s Twitter and Facebook pages, which promote physical activity as a solution to chronic disease and obesity while remaining largely silent on the role of food and nutrition, made no mention of Coca-Cola’s financial support. So far, the social media campaign has failed to gain much traction: As of Friday, the group had fewer than 1,000 followers on Twitter.”

New Study: GMO Corn Makes Rats Infertile

Source link: http://collectivelyconscious.net/articles/new-study-gmo-corn-makes-rats-infertile/

new-study-gmo-corn-makes-rats-infertile

Whether you question the safety of GMOs or think the public is concerned about nothing, a recent study will definitely cause you to reconsider your stance.

A new study released by Egyptian scientists has concluded that rats fed a GMO diet suffer from infertility, among other health issues.

Researchers from the Food Technology Department, Faculty of Agriculture, Department of Anatomy and Embryology, and Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Suez Canal University, Ismailia, Egypt found that quite a few unappealing changes took place when rats were fed genetically modified corn.

Because the rats’ organs/body weight and serum biochemistry were altered, potential adverse health and toxic effects were recorded.

The report stated: 

“GM corn or soybeans leads to significant organ disruptions in rats and mice, particularly in livers and kidneys. In addition they found other organs may be affected too, such as heart and spleen, or blood cells. The kidneys of males fared the worst, with 43.5% of all the changes, the liver of females followed with 30.8%”

It seems there’s legitimate reason 90%+ of the US population desires to have genetically modified foods labeled – even if they are heckled about their concerns by mainstream media.

In addition, many of the fats fed a GM diet were completely sterile by day 91.

Formaldehyde in GMO Soy?

Source link:http://www.thesleuthjournal.com/formaldehyde-in-gmo-soy/

From the source:  “When the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) wrongfully declared GMOs “substantially equivalent” to non-GMO foods, the agency set the table for decades of corruption. Corruption of our food supply. Corruption of our health. Corruption of our Democracy.

Now, along comes a new study, published in the peer-reviewedAgricultural Sciences, that says GMO crops, or at least GMO soy crops, are absolutely not substantially equivalent to non-GMO soy crops.

From a press release:

The study, led by Dr. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai, Ph.D., an MIT-trained systems biologist, utilizes his latest invention, CytoSolve, a 21st century systems biology method to integrate 6,497 in vitro and in vivolaboratory experiments, from 184 scientific institutions, across 23 countries, to discover the accumulation of formaldehyde, a known carcinogen, and a dramatic depletion of glutathione, an anti-oxidant necessary for cellular detoxification, in GMO soy, indicating that formaldehyde and glutathione are likely critical criteria for distinguishing the GMO from its non-GMO counterpart.

More than 90 percent of all U.S. soy crops are GMO. Soy is commonly found in a long list of foods.

Public School Students Served 6 Year Old Lunch Meat

EDIT: This video was taken off the internet… new video posted. Please download and share before the food companies have this removed again. Thanks.

These fuckers should be in jail for serving kids 6 year old pork lunch meat. It’s an abomination that we have people in our country serving food like this.

Found the link here:

Source link HERE:

http://therundownlive.com/public-school-students-served-6-year-old-lunch-meat/

“It smelled so bad they made gravy to put over the meat.”

This week it was reported that children in Tennessee public schools were being served lunch meat that was 6 years old.

Apparently there was a problem with the food at Hawkins County Schools for a long time, but someone from Joseph Rogers Primary School recently sent a photo to Hawkins County Commissioner Michael Herrell, showing the expired meat and sparking an investigation.

The county denies that the food was served at this specific school, but admits that the meat was served at other schools. It is unclear who took the photo, but if the food was actually not served at this school then it is possible that an employee took the photo and refused to serve the food.”

It was confirmed that this meat was served at Cherokee High School last week, but Harrell admits that the meat was served at other schools as well.

“Here in Hawkins County, we have a lot of kids that go to school and that might be the only meal they get all day long. It just upsets me that these kids are going to school to get that meat,” Herrell said.

Herrell told reporters that one of the workers in the caffeteria told him “that it smelled so bad they made gravy to put over the meat.”

“I heard that McPheeter’s Bend, cooked the meat there (and) that the smell was so bad the school had the smell all through the school,” Herrell said.

“There was some meat that was in our freezers with dates of 2009, 2010, 2011,” Hawkins County Director of Schools Steve Starnes said.”

“The first step is admitting you have a problem” : Diet Pepsi to ditch the aspartame

This is one of those articles that restores some of my faith in the modern world. We have received the suprising news that Pepsi is removing aspartame form some of their product. I say this is surprising because for so many years they have evaded the general knowledge that aspartame is bad for you. Check out this list of side effects of aspartame. This is one small step in companies taking the harmful chemicals out of their food. View the article here: http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2015/04/24/pepsi-diet-pepsi-pepsico-aspartame-aspartame-free-beverages-soft-drinks/26297755/

Excerpt:

“Diet Pepsi is finally giving aspartame the heave-ho.

Spurred by falling sales and consumer safety concerns, PepsiCo North America Beverages announced on Friday that an aspartame-free Diet Pepsi — sweetened with sucralose and ace-K — will hit shelves some time in August. Pepsi executives say the new Diet Pepsi sweetener formulation tastes the same as the old one.

Large lettering on the new Diet Pepsi cans and packaging will shout: “Now Aspartame Free.”

For many consumers — who fear aspartame’s side effects — and for PepsiCo, which has seen Diet Pepsi sales tumble over the past several years, the change can’t come soon enough. Last year, Diet Pepsi volume was down -5.2% and Diet Coke volume was down -6.6% in the U.S., reports Beverage Digest, the industry trade publication.

PepsiCo has spent years trying to develop a new Diet Pepsi sweetener that would placate consumer concerns but still appeal to consumer tastes. The move would seem to put pressure on arch-rival Coke, which also has seen Diet Coke sales slump, to make a similar move.”
