Americans are too stupid for GMO-Labeling says Congressional Panel
It’s pretty rare that members of Congress and all the witnesses they’ve called will declare out loud that Americans are just too ignorant to be given a piece of information, but that was a key conclusion of a session of the House Agriculture Committee…
People who oppose GMOs or want them labeled so that consumers can know what they’re eating are alarmists who thrive on fear and ignorance, the panel agreed. Labeling GMO foods would only stoke those fears, and harm a beneficial thing, so it should not be allowed, the lawmakers and witnesses agreed…
The issue may soon gain fresh relevance on Capitol Hill, where a measure backed by Reps. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) and G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.) to stop states from requiring GMO labeling could get marked up as early as September. The bill also would allow genetically engineered food to be labeled “100 percent natural.”

Dov Charney, the former CEO of American Apparel… gained notoriety for his company’s extremely sexual ads featuring young women, for walking around his Los Angeles office in his underwear, and for several lawsuits alleging sexual harassment…
Since taking on the roles of president and CEO when the company went public in 2007, Charney has been the target of multiple lawsuits alleging sexual harassment.
Former American Apparel employee Kimbra Lo filed a California Superior Court lawsuit accusing him of sexually assaulting her in 2010 at his home, during what she had believed would be a hiring interview for a new job as a company photographer.
Charney appeared in the doorway of the Los Angeles home “wearing only a towel,” then grabbed Lo “and violently kissed her,” the lawsuit charged.
When she protested and started to leave, Charney apologized and told her to stay, assuring her that “they would just talk about business.”
Instead, he led Lo into his bedroom and “forced her to perform various sexual acts,” becoming “more aggressive and violent” when she made any effort to resist, the lawsuit alleged…

GMO / Big Chemical Companies Dousing the Hell Out of Hawaiian Island with Highly Toxic Pesticides
"For the better part of two decades, BASF Plant Science, Dow AgroSciences, DuPont Pioneer, and Syngenta have been drenching their test crops near the small town of Waimea on the southwest coast of Kauai with some of the most dangerous synthetic pesticides in use in agriculture today, at an intensity that far surpasses the norm at most other American farms, an analysis of government pesticide databases shows.
Each of the seven highly toxic chemicals most commonly used on the test fields has been linked to a variety of serious health problems ranging from childhood cognitive disorders to cancer. And when applied together in a toxic cocktail, their joint action can make them even more dangerous to exposed people.” - grist.org
Dangerous chemicals are being applied to GMO test fields on Kauai at a much higher rate than on most U.S. farms, an analysis of new data reveals.

The ‘Healthy Drink’ Scam…Juice, Flavored Waters/Vitamin Waters, Sports Drinks Filled with Questionable Synthetic and Industrialized Additives
Juice, flavored waters/vitamin waters, sports drinks. Now here is where things get a little interesting because many people believe that juice, flavored waters and sports drinks are all natural healthy alternatives to drinks like soda. In theory, maybe. But the reality is that many commercially processed juices, flavored waters and sports drinks contain questionable synthetic and industrialized food additives—chemicals that have been linked with adverse reactions in some consumers. Let’s take a look at some of the additives commonly used in these purported “healthy” drinks:
benzoates such as calcium benzoate, potassium benzoate and sodium benzoate,
dipotassium phosphate (DKP),
brominated vegetable oil (BVO),
synthetic calcium pantothenate,
artificial sweeteners like aspartame,
the mysterious, source unknown “natural flavorings”,
artificial dyes (including tartrazine/yellow dye 5) and artificial flavorings,
sodium carboxymethyl-cellulose (cellulose gum),
Given this lineup either our society has really lowered the bar for what constitutes “healthy” now or Big Food’s marketing agencies are absolute geniuses.
