Priorities


Man sacrifices his health
in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money
to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future
that he does not enjoy the present;
the result being that he does not live
in the present or the future;
He lives as if he’s never going to die,
and then he dies having never really lived

GMO, Vaccines & more ->


I stand at the edge of most things conspiracy theory-esque and tend to speak out only when my logical brain, common sense & intuition all start singing the same tune. Such things can get ‘wordy’ so I’ll make it as brief as I can. Here are the three things that seem to be lining up in a scary way.

(1) Genetic Manipulation in Mammals –
(2) Genetically Modified Food (GMO) –
(3) Vaccines.

(* 1) A dog has been created with a manipulated gene whose effect can be turned ‘on & off’ by simply adding a drug to its food supply with the ‘goal being to use this technology to turn off disease causing genes. The turning off part sounds cool but about ‘turning on’ stuff, on purpose on by accident. That’s where my greatest concern lies.

(+ 2) Many GMO food crops are created by introducing plant &/or animal DNA via a VIRUS. Add to this, there is a concentrated effort to replace existing crops with GMO in the guise of high yield, weed resistance, etc., yet a majority of GMO seeds grow for ‘one season’ and must be purchased again each year fostering a strong control over the whole Ag Industry.

(3) In the last 6 – 12 months I have noticed a strong increase in the promotion of newer vaccines without corresponding epidemics. It just flat out strikes me as odd. There is a lot of info on the web regarding the dangers of vaccines as a whole – yet setting that aside, my greatest concern is… without questioning, society is accepting vaccines as an ok, near everyday thing. We’ve even come close to ‘mandatory’ vaccines a couple of times. Vaccines seem to be the perfect vehicle to introduce to the general populace viruses/DNA/etc. under the ‘cover’ of protecting one’s health. Add it to the above and it looks like a recipe for disaster/domination/whatever.

Do with this what you will… but please use your own smarts & you own eyes. Make your own conclusions. Whatever you do… don’t just accept the status quo without at least, some consideration. You can always just follow the money trail (see who really benefits from the above either financially or in power/control)

Nanotechnology in your Food

Nanotechnology in your Food (click here)

As best you can...
Eat organic
Eat local foods
Support local farmers

Boycott the 'Big Boys' if this nonsense keeps up

Remember the last great food idea...
hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils

their consumption has been linked to the development of diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease.

These things are based on MONEY & PROFIT...

... not on concern for our HEALTH

Agave Nectar & High Fructose Corn Syrup

agaveI’ve noticed an upswing in notoriety surrounding Agave Nectar & High Fructose Corn Syrupcorn

There currently is a distinct advertising blitz touting the safety & wholesomeness of High Fructose Corn Syrup
(a majority coming from Genetically engineered crops – don’t mess with mother nature)

…while concurrently…

There is a smear campaign being launched against Agave Nectar
(which turns out is in some cases is having, you guessed it, High Fructose Corn Syrup and other things added to it)

So here’s the deal…. they’re both sugar!

Fructose (agave & corn) raise blood sugar levels but Sucrose (table sugar) tends toward spiking blood sugar levels (really bad for diabetics) so choose what ever is the lesser evil for you

We as Americans are addicted to sugar in it’s many forms (mine is Honey-Fructose). We really need to take a hard look at how many sugars we eat and how it affects our health. As an experiment for a week, read (or get) the nutrition info on all the stuff you eat. You’d be amazed at the amount of sugar.

Stevia is an ultra sweet herb alternative that can be used to sweeten many things but what I see in stores has usually been processed in same manner. If you want to experiment with stevia, buy some dried stevia leaves at a health food store. You can easily grind it into a powder in a coffee grinder. A little goes a looong way

Here are a couple reference articles but use your discernment to judge the authors motivation for writing the piece
