The Importance of Reading Food Labels

December 13, 2012

Imported food we eat and the junk we buy

Green Giant frozen vegetables are from China, and so are most of Europe’s Best.  Arctic Gardens are okay. So is Birdseye.

Never buy the grocery store garlic unless it is clearly marked from USA or Canada, the other stuff is grown in people poop (even worse than chicken poop). China is the largest producer of garlic in the world. U.S. is next.

Buy only local honey, much honey is shipped in huge containers from China and re-packed here.

Cold-FX is grown and packed in China and is full of fecal bacteria. It doesn’t work anyway, it’s a big scam. If the country of origin is not clearly marked beware. If it’s produce, ask an employee.

Watch out for packages which state “prepared for”, “packed by” or “imported by”. I don’t understand the lack of mandatory labeling, especially the produce.

The country of origin should be clearly shown on the item in the store. I go to the local farmers’ markets in season and keep a wary eye open the rest of the year.

Please read this very carefully, and read to the very bottom. It’s important for all of us.

How is it possible to ship food from China cheaper than having it produced in the U.S. or Canada?

FOR EXAMPLE THE “OUR FAMILY” BRAND OF MANDARIN ORANGES SAYS RIGHT ON THE CAN ‘FROM CHINA’. SO, FOR A FEW MORE CENTS, BUY THE LIBERTY BRAND.  GOLD BRAND OR DOLE IS FROM CALIFORNIA.

Beware, Costco sells canned peaches and pears in a plastic jar that come from China.

ALL “HIGH LINER” AND MOST OTHER FROZEN FISH PRODUCTS COME FROM CHINA OR INDONESIA. THE PACKAGE MAY SAY “PACIFIC SALMON” ON THE FRONT, BUT LOOK FOR THE SMALL PRINT. MOST OF THESE PRODUCTS COME FROM FISH FARMS IN THE ORIENT WHERE THERE ARE NO REGULATIONS ON WHAT IS FED TO THESE FISH.

Recently The Montreal Gazette had an article by the Canadian Government on how Chinese feed the fish: They suspend chicken wire crates over the fish ponds, and the fish feed on chicken s–t.

If you search the internet about what the Chinese feed their fish, you’ll be alarmed; e.g., growth hormones, expired anti-biotic from humans. Never buy any type of fish or shellfish that comes from these countries: Vietnam, China, Philippines.

Check this out personally. I did. Stienfeld’s Pickles are made in India – just as bad!

Another example is in canned mushrooms. No-Name brand came from Indonesia. Also check those little fruit cups. They used to be made in Canada in the Niagara region until about 2 years ago. They are now packaged in China!

While the Chinese export inferior and even toxic products, dangerous toys, and goods to be sold in North American markets, the media wrings its hands! Yet, 70% of North Americans believe that the trading privileges afforded to the Chinese should be suspended! Well, duh! Why do you need the government to suspend trading privileges?

DO IT YOURSELF, JUST BUY FROM CANADA AND THE U.S.!

Simply look on the bottom of every product you buy, and if it says ‘Made in China ‘ or ‘PRC’ (and that now includes Hong Kong), simply choose another product, or none at all. You will be amazed at how dependent you are on Chinese products, and you will be equally amazed at what you can do without.

THINK ABOUT THIS:

If 200 million North Americans refuse to buy just $20 each of Chinese goods, that’s a billion dollar trade imbalance resolved in our favor…fast!! The downside? Some Canadian/American businesses will feel a temporary pinch from having foreign stockpiles of inventory.

Just one month of trading losses will hit the Chinese for 8% of their North American exports. Then they will at least have to ask themselves if the benefits of their arrogance and lawlessness are worth it.

START NOW and don’t stop!  Send this to everybody you know. Let’s show them that we are intelligent, and NOBODY can take us for granted.

Editors note: The quantity of Chinese food imports makes it virtually impossible for the FDAto inspect even 1% of the imports. The Chinese government doesn’t care about the food it’s exporting, allowing food producers to use toxic chemicals in the production of their food items. So beware, and be aware of what you are buying!

FDA Posts Nationwide Recall of Slim Fast

December 7, 2009

//

A nationwide voluntary recall of all Slim-Fast ready-to-drink (RTD) products in cans has been posted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) due to the possibility of contamination with Bacillus cereus, a micro-organism, which may cause diarrhea and possibly nausea and/or vomiting. The probability of serious adverse health consequences is remote. Slim-Fast is a product of Unilever United States, Inc.

The products are packaged in paperboard cartons and contain four, six or 12 steel cans or individual cans that are 11 FL OZ (325 mL) each.  The recall involves all Slim-Fast RTD products in cans, regardless of flavor, Best-By date, lot code or UPC number. No other Slim-Fast products are affected by this recall.

The recall was initiated after the company conducted quality testing on Slim-Fast RTD products in cans. Out of an abundance of caution, the company is recalling all RTD products in cans that are currently in distribution centers, on-shelf or in back rooms in retail outlets or in consumers homes. The company is in the process of identifying and correcting the production issue, and will resume production and shipment of the product when the issue has been addressed and corrected.

Consumers who have purchased Slim-Fast RTD products in cans are urged to discard them immediately and contact the company at 1-800-896-9479 for a full refund. The Consumer Services Center is open Monday thru Friday, 8:30 AM to 6:00 PM ET. A recorded message is available 24/7

Why The Swine Flu Vaccine Is A Con

December 3, 2009

Vaccine Revolt Accelerating

In this issue: “Vaccine Revolt” gathering steam. Marketing ploys and lies exposed. “Say NO” Video. Pass This On To Everyone. They REALLY Need To Know

Why The Swine Flu Vaccine Is A Con

Never before has Earth Change Report run an article in full from another editorial source. But this one is of critical importance – if you have any doubts at all (and you should) about the swine flu vaccines that are being pedaled faster than a snake can sidewind….

Vaccine revolt! Swine flu vaccine support crumbles as flimsy rationale for H1N1 shots becomes apparent.

Monday, October 12, 2009 by: Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

(NaturalNews)–Public support for the swine flu vaccine is evaporating by the day as the rationale for the vaccine appears increasingly ludicrous to anyone paying attention.

Moms, nurses, day care workers and members of the general public are increasingly realizing that Big Pharma’s rationale for swine flu vaccination just doesn’t add up.

Recent polls conducted by the mainstream media indicate that more than fifty percent of moms are refusing to expose their children to the swine flu vaccine, and nurses and health practitioners across the US and UK are going vocal with their opposition to the vaccine.

Legal action against the FDA’s approval of the swine flu vaccine is already underway and public protests are gaining momentum in raising awareness about the primary objections to the swine flu vaccine. Intelligent, informed people everywhere are saying NO to this vaccine!

Popular support for the vaccine is crumbling by the day, and health authorities are now turning to exaggerated scare stories to try to drum up demand for their vaccines. Where scientific credibility is lacking, fear is being invoked in its place.

Why the swine flu vaccine doesn’t add up.

So why is the justification for the swine flu so flimsy?

It all comes down to these five crucial reasons being pushed by the vaccine industry… but as you’ll see below, each of these five reasons is demonstrably false!

Reason #1) The H1N1 swine flu pandemic is dangerous and deadly!

Why it’s flimsy: While the infection rate of H1N1 is currently high, the fatality rate is remarkably low. In fact, it’s no higher than a normal, seasonal flu.

Reason #2) The vaccine protects you from the virus!

Why it’s flimsy: There is absolutely no scientific evidence demonstrating that the swine flu vaccine offers real-world protection against the circulating H1N1 virus.

While there is evidence showing that it produces antibodies, as people who have studied vaccine effectiveness already know, the mere existence of vaccine-induced antibodies doesn’t directly translate into functional, real-world immunity! Vaccines are often, in effect, fabricated immunity that often don’t provide practical immune defense in the real world.

Reason #3) The vaccine is perfectly safe, even for kids!

Why it’s flimsy: This reason is truly laughable. None of these vaccines have been properly safety tested by the FDA or the drug companies.

They were approved by the FDA with a waiver, utterly bypassing the normal process of long-term safety testing that the public expects the FDA to enforce.

In fact, according to attorney Jim Turner, the FDA’s baseless approval of these swine flu vaccines is a violation of federal law. (See lawsuit filed)

Reason #4) There’s nothing else you can do to protect yourself from the swine flu (therefore you must take the vaccine shot).

Why it’s flimsy: This reason is an outright lie.

In order to sell more vaccines, the pharmaceutical industry (and all its bureaucratic cohorts at the CDC and WHO) are intentionally keeping people ignorant of far safer and more effective options such as vitamin D and anti-viral herbal remedies.

Reason #5) If you don’t take the vaccine shot, you’re being unethical by placing the shot burden on everyone else without taking it yourself.

Why it’s flimsy: Hilarious! This is marketing by guilt — trying to arm-twist people into the vaccine shot by making them feel guilty if they don’t.

The truth is that you’re being unethical if you DO get the shot because you’re financially supporting a dangerous and highly deceptive vaccine industry that’s causing tremendous harm to children, expectant mothers and other innocent vaccination victims.

Hoping to improve your health by handing money to the pharmaceutical industry through the purchase of vaccines is sort of like hoping to create world peace by writing a check to weapons manufacturers.

No good reason to get the vaccine

Is there any good reason to get the swine flu vaccine?

Not based on the current situation, no. Unless you have a strong desire to play Russian Roulette with your health, of course.

Of course, if things dramatically change, there could be increasingly strong reasons for considering a vaccine.

If the H1N1 virus mutates into a virus with a very high fatality rate, things might be different.

If the vaccine were proven safe with adequate long-term testing, that would be something working in its favor.

If the vaccines were scientifically shown to actually protect you from the virus, then that would be different, too.

But to date, none of these things are verifiably true! The vaccines haven’t been properly tested at all.

There’s no honest evidence demonstrating that they protect you from the swine flu. And the flu has such a low fatality rate, why does a vaccine matter in the first place?

Keep in mind that over 2,000 people die each year from taking aspirin. Over 100,000 Americans are killed each year from taking doctor-prescribed, FDA-approved prescription drugs.

If the people at the CDC are looking for a pandemic, they should be focusing on the pandemic of disease mongering and pharmaceutical pushing that’s taking place across the world right now in the context of the swine flu pandemic.

There is a real pandemic afoot, though… a pandemic of B.S. running rampant across America and the UK.

It’s an infectious form of pharmaceutical quackery that spreads from one person to another at the speed of propaganda. Symptoms of infection include a loss of rational thinking, swine flu hysteria and an irrational belief in symbols of authority.

What we really need in America is a vaccine that protects consumers’ brains from infectious pharmaceutical quackery.

Then again, if we actually injected people with that, the whole drug industry would collapse overnight. That’s because Big Pharma runs on propaganda.

And the propaganda we’re seeing with this swine flu vaccine push is so thick with unjustifiable speculation that it probably deserves a Nobel Peace Prize or something.

Resistance Going Global

Thankfully, some medical professionals (those without ties to Big Pharma or the World Stealth Organization (WHO) or the CDC or NHS or FDA and more) are courageously sounding the alarm about untested vaccines, there link to brain damage and paralyzing side effects and more.

Sadly, it’s unlikely that Big Pharma and the Governments that depend on their contributions to their election campaign coffers will back down gracefully – despite the obvious fact that the vaccines are not properly tested, the swine flu is far less deadly than any true ‘pandemic’ would be, and as the Health Ranger says, there is absolutely NO rationale for proceeding with mass vaccinations.

That said – don’t be surprised if the resistance movement is met with force as those who claim authority to inject toxins into children and pregnant women clamp down in their usual heavy-handed manner.

Just remember though – clamping down increases resistance.

And that’s how Americans – and others – first won their freedom from dictators.
