A new food safety bill is on the fast track in Congress-HR 2749, the Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009. The bill needs to be stopped.
HR 2749 gives FDA tremendous power while significantly diminishing existing judicial restraints on actions taken by the agency. The bill would impose a one-size-fits-all regulatory scheme on small farms and local artisanal producers; and it would disproportionately impact their operations for the worse.
BREADBASKET FOR THE WORLD
In 233 years the world population has swollen from less than a billion to almost seven billion. The Japan Times reports that Canada produces 145% more calories of food than it consumes and the United States is close with 128% while the island nation of Japan has recently dipped to 39%.
(Publisher: UNCONFIRMED - This story has started to hit the Internet on various sites that I am not that familiar with. So do some more research before forwarding as fact) Scientists from Russia’s Ministry of Health are warning in a secret report to Prime Minister Putin that they have discovered a ‘critical link’ between the H1N1 influenza (Swine Flu) virus and genetically modified amylopectin potatoes that are consumed in massive quantities nearly exclusively by Westerners and sold in fast food restaurants as French Fries.
According to these reports, the protease enzyme genetically modified in the potatoes being sold through Western fast food restaurants as French Fries to protect against Potato virus X causes an “explosive” replication of the H1N1 influenza virus by increasing the acidic conditions of the endosome and causing the hemagglutinin protein to rapidly fuse the viral envelope with the vacuole's membrane, then causing the M2 i
A food safety panel established by President Barack Obama developed new rules for eggs, poultry, beef, leafy greens, melons and tomatoes as well as for better coordination and communication among the agencies overseeing the nation's food supply. The Food and Drug Administration and the Agriculture Department would adopt the standards.
In one of the very few long-term feeding studies ever conducted with GE
crops, the fertility of mice fed with GE maize was found to be severely
HR 2749 is a strange bill in many ways. While the other "food safety" bills have been around since winter, allowing for much public discussion on the internet, HR 2749 has only suddenly appeared. It is a mutant conglomeration of the worst of the other bills, with the addition of one very original part - martial law.
Considering that the only real competition the multinationals have – food localization and self-sufficient growers – it is in the best interests of Monsanto, et. al. and the USDA to make it as hard as possible on anyone who does not support GMO, factory farming, and multinational food control. To eliminate the competition is a primary goal of these corporations, and make no mistake, independent food growers are the competition. Through wording designed to be “all inclusive,” the ammunition is there to use against such people as the home gardener, and if these bills pass, it is only a matter of time before someone pulls the trigger. In other words, if law enforcement has a gun, the enforcers are fully aware of the fact that the gun is there, and they know exactly how to use it.
Fresh food alternatives are growing in popularity across the nation, as they employ more people and improve local economies. They also teach “civilized” people what we should never have forgotten: how to feed ourselves...
...and just when you thought it was safe to go green.
Tomato plants have been removed from stores in half a dozen states as a
destructive and infectious plant disease makes its earliest and most
widespread appearance ever in the eastern United States.
Delicious and very healthy Chocolate Cherry Tart recipe with raw, organic ingredients. Just the thing to top off a July 4 barbeque.
At least 12 people, two of them suffering kidney failure, have been hospitalized in connection with a possible E. coli outbreak in beef suspected of having sickened people in nine states, federal health officials said Wednesday.
I am now getting to the matter that truly baffles me. What most baffles me is the recent government raid in little LaGrange, Ohio. I have several questions: Why did it take place? How could it happen right here in America? Where in America do they find young men willing to execute such orders? What is happening now? Who is coming to the aid of these persecuted people? What has happened to my country over the past few decades?
It is becoming more apparent to scientists and experts that ingesting pesticide ridden foods are detrimental to human body function and overall health, particularly during fetal development and early childhood years. Trials performed at Emory University - one of the United States’ leading research schools in Atlanta - concluded that urine and saliva of children eating conventional fruits and vegetables were found to hold alarming biological markers of organophosphates. Daunting enough, some of these chemicals were created from nerve gas agents that were utilized during World War II.
Do you want to know the safe alternative to warding off disease that does not include taking a poisonous vaccine? That alternative is a healthy immune system. By eating factory processed foods that contain preservatives, GMOs and all sorts of artificial ingredients, we are weakening our immune systems and leaving ourselves open to all sorts of illnesses.
Not what the American people ordered - HR 2749, martial law and the enslavement of their farmers. HR 2749 is a strange bill in many ways. While the other “food safety” bills have been around since winter, allowing for much public discussion on the internet, HR 2749 has only suddenly appeared. It is a mutant conglomeration of the worst of the other bills, with the addition of one very original part – martial law.
The real crisis is coming… and it’s coming fast. Indeed, it started last year, almost entirely off the radar of the American public. While all eyes were glued to the carnage in the stock market and brokerage account balances, a far more serious crisis began to unfold rocking 30 countries around the globe.

Nestle USA on Friday voluntarily recalled its Toll House refrigerated cookie dough products after a number of illnesses were reported by those who ate the dough raw. The company said the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control are investigating reported E. coli illnesses that might be related eating the dough. In a statement, the FDA said there have been 66 reports of illness across 28 states since March. About 25 people have been hospitalized, but no one has died. E. coli is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration and, in the most severe cases, kidney failure.
A new food safety bill is on the fast track in Congress-HR 2749, the Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009. HR 2749 would empower FDA to regulate how crops are raised and harvested. It puts the federal government right on the farm, dictating to our farmers. This astounding control opens the door to CODEX. WTO "good farming practices" will include the elimination of organic farming by eliminating manure, mandating GMO animal feed, imposing animal drugs, and ordering applications of petrochemical fertilizers and pesticides. Farmers, thus, will be locked not only into the industrialization of once normal and organic farms but into the forced purchase of industry's products. They will be slaves on the land, doing the work they are ordered to do - against their own best wisdom - and paying out to industry against their will.
