EUROPE : RÉGLEMENTATION : QUI VEUT LA MORT DES COMPLÉMENTS ALIMENTAIRES ?

27 avril 2010 - 15:14 - Alertes- Par Isabelle Saget L’étau se resserre autour des compléments alimentaires. Ils font l’objet de menaces de moins en moins déguisées. Un moment, on a cru que l’Europe, avec sa directive de juin 2002, transposée laborieusement en France en 2006, allait donner aux compléments alimentaires un véritable statut.

Aujourd’hui, les attaques, relayées par des campagnes médiatiques, fusent de toutes parts. Les experts de l’Autorité européenne de sécurité des aliments (EFSA) sont ainsi en train de préciser les listes des différents ingrédients autorisés. Un véritable ménage. Les premières listes portant sur les vitamines, les minéraux et les oligo-éléments ont d’ores et déjà permis, sous couvert de protection du consommateur, de supprimer bon nombre d’entre eux. C’est ainsi que les orotates mais aussi le silicium organique ne sont désormais plus autorisés.

Actuellement, les fameux experts planchent sur les plantes et leurs allégations, mettant de nombreux fabricants dans l’incertitude. « Aujourd’hui, nous sortons une gamme de 14 extraits de plantes simples en gélules. Il s’agit de plantes sur lesquelles existent de longues bibliographies scientifiques, proposées avec un dosage moyen, mais rien ne nous dit que ces produits vont être autorisés. Il est clairement question que l’on nous supprime la possibilité de mettre toute promesse santé », explique-t-on chez Natescience.

Des jugements lourds de conséquences

Mais le combat se déroule également dans les tribunaux français où le Conseil national de l’ordre des pharmaciens (CNOP) assigne systématiquement les fabricants de compléments alimentaires et obtient gain de cause au mépris des lois existantes. Les arrêts rendus retiennent ainsi systématiquement la qualification de médicament, ce qui imposerait une autorisation de mise sur le marché et une vente en pharmacie. Et cela même si les compléments alimentaires en question ont obtenu l’autorisation administrative de la Direction générale de la répression des fraudes (DGCCRF) ou font partie de la liste des plantes « libérées » en 2008.

Vous l’aurez compris, le secteur pharmaceutique souhaite, ni plus ni moins, mettre la main sur ce marché en évinçant les acteurs d’origine. Pour bien comprendre les décisions prononcées sur renvoi de cassation, voici désormais ce que l’on peut entendre dans les tribunaux : « L’action thérapeutique des plantes médicinales qui modifie les fonctions physiologiques donne au produit qui le contient la qualification légale de médicaments par fonction. » Ou encore au sujet de la vitamine C « de par l’action pharmacologique ou métabolique qu’il exerce, il est administré en vue de corriger des fonctions physiologiques ». Pour l’avocat Patrick Beucher, ces jurisprudences doivent alerter aussi bien les fabricants, les vendeurs, que les consommateurs : « Désormais la qualification de médicament s’impose simplement parce qu’il y a des spécialités pharmaceutiques qui contiennent ces substances. » Ainsi labos et pharmaciens pouvaient, main dans la main, animer fin mars une table ronde au salon Pharmagora sur le thème : « Les compléments alimentaires source de marge et de rentabilité »…

USA : CONGRESSMAN WAXMAN SNEAKS ANTI-VITAMIN AMENDMENT INTO WALL STREET REFORM BILL

Posted by RJ on May 3, 2010 at 3:50pm




Congressman Waxman sneaks anti-vitamin amendment into Wall Street reform bill

(NaturalNews) Of all the sneaky tactics practiced in Washington D.C., this recent action by Congressman Henry Waxman (D-CA) is one of the most insidious: While no one was looking, he injected amendment language into the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2009 (H.R. 4173) that would expand the powers of the FTC (not the FDA, but the FTC) to terrorize nutritional supplement companies by greatly expanding the power of the FTC to make its own laws that target dietary supplement companies.

This is a little-known secret about the FTC and the nutritional supplements business: The FTC routinely targets nutritional supplement companies that are merely telling the truth about their products. Some companies are threatened by merely linking to published scientific studies about their products.

For example, here's an important article that describes how to FDA criminally extorts money out of supplement companies: http://www.naturalnews.com/024567_h...

The FTC does much the same thing. They target a particular company that's having success in the natural products marketplace, then they accuse that company of "inferring" that their products have some health benefit. From there, the FTC demands that the company engage in paying a massive fine to the FTC, which the FTC calls "consumer redress" even though none of the money actually goes to the consumers.

If you try to fight the FTC, they haul you into their own special "FTC courts" which are not public courts where you have the benefit of a jury, but rather they are courts where the judges are actually FTC employees and you have no rights. You are essentially guilty until proven innocent, and virtually no one has been found innocent by the FTC.

If the King says you're guilty, then you're guilty

The FTC also forces you to sign a "consent decree" which involves you admitting to committing crimes that you have actually never committed. These crimes include the "criminal misrepresentation of a product" by, for example, explaining that walnuts help support healthy cholesterol levels or that cherries ease symptoms of inflammation.

Using these methods, the FTC has extorted tens of millions of dollars out of nutritional supplement companies. More importantly, it has terrorized the industry and put several companies out of business, denying the American public access to products that could improve their health and prevent disease.

Waxman wants the FTC to have even more power over your vitamins

Now Congressman Henry Waxman wants to give the FTC even more powers by allowing the FTC to write its own laws without Congressional approval. This would allow a rogue agency to simply invent any new law it wants, such as requiring nutritional supplement companies to spend hundreds of millions of dollars "proving" the efficacy of a vitamin before they can sell it.

This will allow the FTC to utterly circumvent DSHEA -- the law passed in 1994 that provides basic protections to vitamin and supplement manufacturers. This will result in an FTC war on vitamins and supplements that would no doubt see this rogue agency attempting to destroy the entire industry and imprison the founders and executives of all the top supplement manufacturers.

This is how bad things have become in America today: The criminal CEOs of drug companies are allowed to commit felony crimes, engage in routine price fixing fraud and fix their research with fraudulent clinical trials, yet the FTC and FDA do nothing. But when an honest nutritional supplement company says something like, "Walnuts are good for your heart," they get threatened with imprisonment or have their entire life savings stolen away from them by the FTC through a series of "fines."

NEW 'SAFETY PLAN' WOULD CONTROL WHAT YOU EAT

'It is to our food what the bailout was to our economy, only we can live without money'

POsted: May 01, 2010
11:30 pm Eastern
By Bob Unruh
© 2010 WorldNetDaily

Critics say a bill pending in the U.S. Senate would do for Americans' food supply what "Obamacare" is doing to the nation's supply of health-care resources.

And it's generating a surge of alarm among small-farm operators and natural food advocates.

"S. 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010 http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h111-2749 , may be the most dangerous bill in the history of the U.S.," writes Steve Green on the Food Freedom blog. "It is to our food what the bailout was to our economy, only we can live without money."

The plan is sponsored by U.S. Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., who explains the legislation "is a critical step toward equipping the FDA with the authorities and funding it needs to regulate what is now a global marketplace for food, drugs, devices, and cosmetics."

Now it's statism on our plate! Mark Levin's manifesto – 'Liberty and Tyranny' – provides the antidote to its growing stranglehold

His website explains, "The legislation requires foreign and domestic food facilities to have safety plans in place to prevent food hazards before they occur, increases the frequency of inspections. Additionally, it provides strong, flexible enforcement tools, including mandatory recall. Most importantly, this bill generates the resources to support FDA food safety activities."

The proposal, which was cleared by the U.S. House last year but has been languishing in the Senate because of a full calendar of projects, creates a long list of new requirements for food-producing entities to meet the demands of the Secretary of Agriculture. It is expected to be the subject of discussion in coming days.

According to a summary of the proposal, it "requires annual registration of food facilities, including food facilities that export food." It also sets up a suspension of registration for any "food facility" breaking any Health and Human Services rule, creates an annual fee for registration and gives bureaucratic oversight of many operations.

One such proposal, the summary explains, is to require federal officials "to establish a tracing system for food that is located in the United States or is for import into the United States that enables the Secretary to quickly identify each person who grows, produces, manufactures, processes, packs, transports, holds, or sells such food."

While it includes an exemption for food "produced on a farm," the absence of further definition is leaving many wondering whether they will be monitored if they pick strawberries, make jam and sell it at a farmers market.

Green's analysis quoted Shiv Chopra, a Canada Health whistleblower, who concluded S. 510 "would preclude the public's right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes."

Does your doctor really know best? Get this straight-forward examination of how to make sure you feel your best every day!

Bill Heid, chief of Solutions from Science, a marketer for survival seeds and information on processes to reduce reliance on a supermarket chain, cited a number of concerns.

First, he said, the new layers of regulations will drive up prices. No producer, he said, can afford to expand massively the expense of meeting government requirements without paying for it, and that would have to be passed on to the customers.

Second, he is concerned about the application of laws designed for corporate entities to the local producer: What about Iowa children who want to sell ears of corn at a farmers market or alongside the road?

Further, he said, the plan probably would raise the danger to consumers, because many local suppliers would be forced out of business, and his or her customers would be forced to rely on the corporate supply chains.

"What they're going to do is end up making it unsafe," Heid said.

He tells people their best defense against contaminated products is to grow their own or buy it from someone they know.

According to a report at Oregon Rural Action, which urged consumers to contact their members of Congress on the issue, the "one-size-fits-all" concept isn't workable.

"S. 510 is a well-meaning attempt to address the genuine problems of contamination from food-borne pathogens and complications in prevention and intervention caused by large, industrialized food distribution systems," the group said.

"All of the well-publicized incidents of contamination in recent years – spinach, peppers, peanuts, hamburger – occurred in industrialized food supply chains that span national and even international boundaries. Food safety is a priority shared by all. It is not compromised by the growing trend toward healthy, fresh, locally sourced vegetables, meats, fruits, dairy and small processing firms reinvigorating local food systems. Local food systems are inherently safer and traceable," the group said.

While the group said some definitions that would protect small operations apparently are in the works, the possibility remains of standards even for "small, direct market farmers."

The bill opponents say it brings the "complex and burdensome" Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point system "to even the smallest local processors."

"Applying a HACCP system to newly emerging local foods facilities processing for local markets as well as to direct market farmers adding value to their products may undermine and extinguish these emerging small businesses attempting to bring fresh, local foods to the American table," the analysis said.

The Daily Paul, which dedicates itself to restoring constitutional government, warned the proposal also would undermine the public's access to dietary supplements.

At Citizens For Health, the bill's expansion of government authority and bureaucracy was condemned.

"If passed, the law would charge facilities an annual $500 registration fee, require redundant record keeping, and expand the FDA's authority to quarantine geographic areas for alleged food safety problems – all without significantly improving food safety."

The Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance warned, "As it is currently written, S. 510 will actually make our food less safe. S. 510 will strengthen the forces that have led to the consolidation of our food supply in the hands of a few industrial food producers."

LA FAO LANCE UNE PÉTITION MONDIALE CONTRE LA FAIM

Des loups déguisés en bons bergers lancent maintenant une pétition contre la faim, alors que ce sont eux-mêmes qui mettent de l'avant cet agenda. Leurs documents prouvent par eux-mêmes que le contrôle alimentaire est une arme précieuse de destruction massive pour le contrôle des peuples et la dépopulation de la terre. Afin de s'amuser un peu plus avec le bétail humain, la FAO invite les citoyens du monde à se rendre le 11 mai prochain, à « siffler la faim » avec un sifflet jaune, symbole de la campagne, devant le siège de l'Organisation à Rome, en Italie http://www.un.org/apps/newsFr/storyF.asp?NewsID=21853&Cr=faim&Cr1=        




11 mai 2010 – L'Organisation des Nations Unies pour l'alimentation et l'agriculture (FAO) a donné mardi le coup d'envoi à une pétition en ligne incitant le public à se révolter face au constat que près d'un milliard de personnes souffrent de la faim de par le monde.

"Nous devrions être très en colère face au fait scandaleux que nos semblables continuent à être victimes de la faim", a déclaré le Directeur général de la FAO, Jacques Diouf. "Si avez le même sentiment, je vous demande de manifester cette colère. Tous autant que vous êtes, riches et pauvres, jeunes et vieux, habitants des pays avancés et des pays en développement, exprimez votre colère contre la faim dans le monde en ajoutant votre nom à la pétition mondiale sur le site http://www.1billionhungry.org/".

La pétition sur Internet exhorte les gouvernements à accorder la priorité absolue à l'élimination de la faim. Le symbole de cette campagne intitulée « 1billionhungry » ('1 milliard d'affamés') est un sifflet jaune, encourageant les citoyens à siffler contre la faim. La FAO souhaite que la pétition se propage sur les réseaux sociaux tels que Facebook, Twitter et YouTube.

Un des points forts de la campagne est une vidéo promotionnelle réalisée avec l'acteur britannique Jeremy Irons, qui reprend le rôle d'un personnage révolté, campé par Peter Finch dans une scène célèbre du film Network qui lui a valu l'Oscar du meilleur acteur.

Le champion olympique d'athlétisme américain Carl Lewis et le footballeur français Patrick Vieira sont parmi les personnalités du monde des arts et des sports qui participent au lancement de la campagne. L'Association des ligues européennes de football professionnel présente une vidéo où les footballeurs manifestent leur colère. Elle parrainera également dans le courant de l'année une Journée de matchs contre la faim.

Les stars internationales de la chanson Anggun, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Dionne Warwick, Fanny Lu, Mory Kanté, Noa et Chucho Valdés ont fait don d'oeuvres musicales pour la campagne.

Le projet '1 billionhungry' bénéficie en outre du soutien actif d'un grand nombre d'organisations de la société civile, comme l'Association mondiale des guides et éclaireuses (AMGE), et d'une série d'ONG qui se feront les promoteurs de la campagne en s'appuyant sur leurs propres réseaux de supporteurs.

Aux rythmes actuels de réduction de la faim, l'Objectif du millénaire pour le développement consistant à réduire de moitié le pourcentage d'affamés d'ici 2015 ne pourra être atteint. Sur un milliard de victimes de la faim dans le monde, 642 millions vivent en Asie et dans le Pacifique, 265 millions en Afrique subsaharienne, 53 millions en Amérique latine et aux Caraïbes, 42 au Moyen-Orient et en Afrique du Nord et 15 millions dans les pays développés.

La FAO estime que la production agricole mondiale devra augmenter de 70% pour nourrir les 9 milliards de personnes qui peupleront la planète en 2050.

Des événements pour marquer le lancement de la campagne '1billionhungry' ont été organisés dans plusieurs villes de par le monde. A Yokohama, par exemple, siège d'un centre d'organismes des Nations Unies, des banderoles publicitaires ont été installées sur les principaux sites de la ville. A Paris, étudiants et militants des ONG soutenant l'initiative se sont rassemblés devant la Tour Eiffel, armés de sifflets et arborant des T-shirts de la campagne.

ARAB WORLD GRAPPLES WITH FOOD SHORTAGE

Written by Rachelle Kliger
Published Tuesday, May 11, 2010

Arab countries need to yield more crop for the drop if they are to prevent a dire food shortage in coming decades.

Arab countries need to invest some $144 billion in agriculture over the next twenty years to meet the food demands of the growing population, an Arab agricultural organization has said.

Tareq A-Zadjali, director general of the Arab Organization for Agriculture Development, said much of the funding for agricultural expansion needs to be secured from private Arab investors.

“We have an annual food security gap of between 27 and 29 billion dollars,” he told The Media Line. “We want to reduce this gap.”.

The population in the Middle East, currently numbering around 335 million, is projected to reach some 545 million by the year 2030, creating what A-Zadjali claimed will be a deficit of $71 billion should investment not be secured.

The organization is working on a program that will increase food security, with a focus on wheat, rice, sugar and oil.

“We need to invest in both outside Arab regions and inside, with a priority given inside to countries that have a potential of natural resources and have capital, so we can produce and have a certain high level of self sufficiency,” A-Zadjali said.

Mylene Kherallah, regional economist for the Near East and North Africa division at the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), argued that the main challenge facing the region in terms of food security is water scarcity.

“The Arab world is one of the driest regions in the word and it will be difficult to be self sufficient on food production,” she told The Media Line. “The region has to use water more efficiently, yield more crop for the drop and rely more stably and consistently on the international and regional market to satisfy the Arab food security because it will be very difficult for the Arabs to produce crops on their own. They have to do both.”

“We need to think about going back to world markets and finding more reliable ways to use international markets for supplying to the local market,” Kherallah said. “I think that we need a two-, three- of four-pronged approach. They need to rely on the international market as well as on regional cooperation, so that there is a regional cereal reserve. The Arab world also needs to increase agricultural productivity in the region, and there’s a lot of room for that. Countries are now using drip irrigation and growing crops that are more tolerant to drought and heat.”

The last two years have been marked by global price hikes of basic food commodities, affecting a number of Middle Eastern countries with large impoverished populations heavily dependent on basic foods and cereals.

In Egypt, bread lines turned deadly in 2008 as they grew longer and the prices of non-subsidized products went up.

Analysts said that access to food in war zones also needs to be taken into consideration.

“The issue is infrastructure and access of displaced people to food,” Kherallah explained. “Sudan has huge agricultural potential, but there is conflict so there’s a large part of the population that doesn’t have physical access to food markets and has to rely on food aid.”

In contrast, she said, Gulf countries are more stretched for water, but have plenty of money and resources which compensates for its small agricultural sector.

UNE PÊCHE PLUS 'VERTE' POURRAIT AMÉLIORER LA VIE DE 500 MILLIONS DE GENS



17 mai 2010 – Investir environ 8 millions de dollars par an pour rendre la pêche durable permettrait d'améliorer la situation de 500 millions de personnes qui en vivent, d'augmenter la quantité mondiale de produits de la pêche à 112 millions de tonnes par an et de rapporter à l'économie globale 1,7 trillion de dollars sur les 40 prochaines années, conclut un avant-rapport du Programme des Nations Unies pour l'environnement (PNUE) publié lundi.

« Les pêcheries du monde entier ont été pillées ou exploitées à un rythme insoutenable », a dit le Directeur exécutif du PNUE, Achim Steiner, en soulignant que la vie et les moyens de subsistance de plus d'un demi-milliard de personnes dépend des choix que les gouvernements vont faire aujourd’hui et dans les années à venir.

Le PNUE prône un investissement massif afin de favoriser la transition du secteur d'une pêche intensive à une pêche 'durable' qui prend en compte à la fois l'environnement mais également les problèmes sociaux-économiques.

Selon le rapport, il existe plus de 35 millions de pêcheurs et 20 millions de bateaux de pêches dans le monde. Le secteur représente 170 millions d'emplois et 35 milliards de dollars de revenus par an. Le développement d'une pêche 'verte' nécessitera aussi la reconversion de millions de travailleurs du secteur qui « vont avoir besoin de soutien pour leur formation », a indiqué M. Steiner.

Le document avance que l'ensemble des entreprises de pêche auront mis la clé sous la porte d'ici 2050 si aucune action n'est prise. Le rapport final sera publié à la fin de l'année 2010.

Un récent rapport intitulé 'Perspectives de la biodiversité mondiale' (GBO-3) déplorait l'échec des Etats à réaliser les objectifs fixés par la Convention des Nations unies sur la diversité biologique (CBD). « Nous continuons à perdre la biodiversité à un rythme que nous n'avions jamais vu auparavant », avait dit le Secrétaire général de la Convention des Nations unies sur la diversité biologique (CBD), Ahmed Djoghlaf lors de la publication du rapport.

FRANCE : ARCACHON: INTERDICTION DE PÊCHE ET COMMERCIALISATION DES COQUILLAGES

BORDEAUX - La pêche, le ramassage et la commercialisation en vue de la consommation des coquillages en provenance du bassin d'Arcachon ont été interdits en raison de la présence de toxines, a indiqué vendredi la préfecture.

Le préfet de la Gironde, Dominique Schmitt, a décidé cette mesure d'interdiction ainsi qu'une mesure de retrait des coquillages mis sur le marché depuis le 17 mai, après la "détection par le réseau de suivi sanitaire de l'Ifremer, de Dinophysis et de toxines lipophiles en quantité importante, à l'image d'autres zones conchylicoles du littoral atlantique", selon un communiqué.

"La consommation de coquillages atteints par le dinophysis et les toxines lipophiles peut entraîner des désagréments gastriques, dans la majeure partie des cas, mais également des troubles plus importants chez les personnes plus fragilisées", ajoute le communiqué.

Par ailleurs, le préfet de Charente-Maritime, Henri Masse, a décidé de lever l'interdiction de pêche maritime professionnelle et de loisir qui frappait les coquillages bivalves et les crabes en provenance de la côte nord du département.

Cette interdiction avait déjà été levée pour les huîtres mercredi en raison des bons résultats des analyses.

"L'ensemble de ces activités peut par conséquent s'exercer normalement sur l'ensemble du département", précise un communiqué.

RED ALERT!!! - ALERTE ROUGE!!!

SENATE BILL S510 MAKES IT ILLEGAL TO GROW, SHARE, TRADE OR SELL HOMEGROWN FOOD


Monday Apr 26 Judged:

S 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010 http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-s510/show , may be the most dangerous bill in the history of the US. It is to our food what the bailout was to our economy, only we can live without money.

IF ACCEPTED [S 510] WOULD PRECLUDE THE PUBLIC’S RIGHT TO GROW, OWN, TRADE, TRANSPORT, SHARE, FEED AND EAT EACH AND EVERY FOOD THAT NATURE MAKES. It will become the most offensive authority against the cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products of one’s choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law or, if you like, the will of God.”~Dr. Shiv Chopra, Canada Health whistleblower

It is similar to what India faced with imposition of the salt tax during British rule, only S 510 extends control over all food in the US, violating the fundamental human right to food.

Monsanto says it has no interest in the bill and would not benefit from it, but Monsanto’s Michael Taylor who gave us rBGH and unregulated genetically modified (GM) organisms, appears to have designed it and is waiting as an appointed Food Czar to the FDA (a position unapproved by Congress) to administer the agency it would create — without judicial review — if it passes. S 510 would give Monsanto unlimited power over all US seed, food supplements, food and farming.

History

In the 1990s, Bill Clinton introduced HACCP (Hazardous Analysis Critical Control Points) purportedly to deal with contamination in the meat industry. Clinton’s HACCP delighted the offending corporate (World Trade Organization “WTO”) meat packers since it allowed them to inspect themselves, eliminated thousands of local food processors (with no history of contamination), and centralized meat into their control. Monsanto promoted HACCP.
In 2008, Hillary Clinton, urged a powerful centralized food safety agency as part of her campaign for president. Her advisor was Mark Penn, CEO of Burson Marsteller*, a giant PR firm representing Monsanto. Clinton lost, but Clinton friends such as Rosa DeLauro, whose husband’s firm lists Monsanto as a progressive client and globalization as an area of expertise, introduced early versions of S 510.

S 510 fails on moral, social, economic, political, constitutional, and human survival grounds.

USA - NEW FOOD SAFETY BILL 24 MAY 2010



An amendment to the Senate’s food safety bill, the Food Safety Modernization Act, S. 510, threatened to diminish what has been broad industry support for legislation strengthening the Food and Drug Administration and enhancing the nation’s food safety system.

The amendment offered by Senator Dianne Feinstein of California would ban the use of bisphenol A (B.P.A.) in food and beverage containers and in reusable beverage containers. Industry groups cried foul pointing out the F.D.A. and the National Institutes for Health were studying whether B.P.A. constituted a threat to health and that the amendment would short-circuit that process.

The Senate version of the food safety enhancement legislation was expected to be brought before the whole Senate in the next few weeks. The House of Representatives passed its food safety bill last year. The bills, crafted in response to a spate of outbreaks of foodborne illness and mounting concerns over the safety of both domestically produced and imported foods, attracted bipartisan support in both houses of Congress.

B.P.A. is a chemical used to make hard clear plastic used in many consumer products, including baby bottles and sipping cups.

It also is used as an ingredient in epoxy resins used to provide a protective lining on the inside of metal-based food and beverage cans.

The F.D.A. in an assessment issued earlier this year said it had “some concern” in the wake of studies pointing to potential adverse effects of B.P.A. on the brains, behavior and prostate glands of fetuses, infants and young children. The agency said it would partner with the National Toxicology Program at the N.I.H. to conduct several studies on the safety of B.P.A. during the next several months.

The agency said in the interim it would support industry action to stop producing B.P.A.-containing baby bottles and infant feeding cups, facilitate development of alternatives to B.P.A. for linings of liquid infant formula cans and support efforts to replace B.P.A. or minimize B.P.A. levels in other food can linings.

Ms. Feinstein’s amendment is based on a bill she introduced last year, the Ban Poisonous Additives Act of 2009, S. 593. The bill was co-sponsored by Senators Barbara Boxer of California, Tim Johnson of South Dakota, Robert Menendez of New Jersey, Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, John Kerry of Massachusetts and Charles Schumer of New York. The bill aimed to ban the use of B.P.A. in food and beverage containers and reusable food containers. Waivers from the ban would be available to manufacturers of certain types of food who demonstrate it is not immediately technologically feasible to replace B.P.A. in the food’s container. The waivers would be for one year, and the company would have to submit a plan and a timeline for removing B.P.A. from such containers. The waivers may be extended if necessary but only for one additional year, and those manufacturers securing waivers “shall display a prominent warning on the label that the container contains B.P.A. in a manner that the secretary shall require, which manner shall ensure adequate public awareness of potential health effects associated with B.P.A.”

Fifty-four food industry organizations and chambers of commerce jointly wrote letters to Senator Tom Harkin, chairman of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, and Senator Michael Enzi of Wyoming, the ranking minority member of the committee, voicing their strong opposition to the amendment, “To be clear, we are prepared to support S. 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act, in its current form. At the same time, we are concerned that amendments to ban B.P.A. would undermine the goals of food safety legislation and delay final passage.”

The associations said B.P.A. has been used for more than 30 years to improve the safety and quality of food and beverages, including by providing protective coatings for cans and the metal closures for glass jars.

“Because adequate alternatives are not currently available, bills such as S. 593 would adversely impact an exceptionally wide range of canned and other packaged food, from fruits and vegetables to soft drinks and beer,” the associations noted.

The associations said the F.D.A. is reviewing B.P.A. and is expected to complete a safety assessment within the next 18 to 24 months. In addition, the N.I.H. has devoted $30 million to study the safety of B.P.A.

OUVERTURE D'UNE CONFÉRENCE SUR LA CONSERVATION DES STOCKS DE POISSONS

Autre document : DU 24 AU 28 MAI, LA CONFÉRENCE D’EXAMEN DE L’ACCORD SUR LES STOCKS DE POISSONS TENTERA DE RÉPONDRE AUX DÉFIS EN MATIÈRE D’ÉPUISEMENT DES STOCKS ET DE PROTECTION DES ÉCOSYSTÈMES MARINS

http://www.un.org/News/fr-press/docs/2010/MER1931.doc.htm

Bientôt, il sera interdit à tous les peuples de se procurer les produits de cette ressource afin de se nourrir et de survivre. Les stocks de poissons seront exclusivement réservés aux amis du Tzar. Tout se met en place pour l'avancement de la famine dans le monde et très peu de personnes semblent se rendre compte de ce qui se passe vraiment. Le réveil sera brutal pour plusieurs!




24 mai 2010 – Une conférence de cinq jours sur la conservation des stocks de poissons a débuté lundi au siège des Nations Unies à New York alors qu'un récent rapport de l'Organisation des Nations Unies pour l'alimentation et l'agriculture (FAO) estime que 75% des stocks de poissons sont menacés.

La surpêche, les effets de la pêche sur l'écosystème marin et le besoin d'assistance des pays en voie de développement constituent les principaux problèmes, a indiqué le Président de la Conférence d'examen de l'accord de 1995 sur la conservation et la gestion des stocks de poissons et Sous-secrétaire adjoint pour les océans et la pêche des Etats-Unis, David Balton.

L'objectif de la Conférence est d'examiner l'application des accords de 1995. La rencontre sera l'occasion d'évaluer de près « ce qui est fait pour mettre en œuvre l'Accord » et répondre aux défis de la réduction des stocks de poissons et de la détérioration continue des écosystèmes marins, a expliqué M. Balton.

Selon un récent rapport du Programme des Nations pour l'environnement (PNUE), la réduction des stocks de poissons va directement affecter les 500 millions de personnes dans le monde qui vivent du produit de la pêche. Le secteur représente 170 millions d'emplois et 35 milliards de dollars de revenus par an.

L'Accord, ratifié par 77 pays, est entré en vigueur en 2001. Il est considéré comme l'instrument juridiquement contraignant le plus important depuis l'adoption de la Convention des Nations Unies sur le droit de la mer de 1982. Depuis 2006, 20 États supplémentaires sont devenus parties à l'Accord. Cet instrument a été élaboré pour renforcer la Convention de 1982, afin de d'instaurer un système régional de protection et de gestion des stocks de poissons. La Conférence se déroulera jusqu'au 28 mai.

CANADA : QUÉBEC : ABITIBI-TÉMISCAMINGUE - PROGRAMME ALIMENTS-POSTE - LE MODIFICATIONS INQUIÈTENT



Mise à jour le mercredi 26 mai 2010 à 12 h 10

Le ministre des Affaires indiennes et du Nord du Canada, Chuck Strahl, a annoncé, vendredi dernier, la création du programme Nutrition Nord Canada pour favoriser une alimentation saine plus accessible et abordable chez les communautés isolées du Nord.

Des subventions sont accordées aux détaillants et aux grossistes qui approvisionnent le nord du pays. Le gouvernement offre des montants plus élevés pour les aliments périssables les plus nutritifs.

Nutrition Nord Canada remplace le programme Aliments-poste, administré par Postes Canada, qui accordait aux transporteurs une aide financière pour réduire le coût des aliments sains dans le Nord canadien.

Craintes à Val-d'Or

La création d'un nouveau programme, pour remplacer Aliments-poste, inquiète les gens d'affaires de la région ainsi que le député d'Abitibi-Baie-James-Nunavik-Eeyou, Yvon Lévesque.

L'aéroport de Val-d'Or était une porte d'entrée pour le transport de la nourriture vers le Nunavik et le Nunavut.

Les grossistes de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue devront redoubler d'efforts pour conserver leurs contrats selon l'homme d'affaires Richard Brouillard. « Je pense que ça va être un travail d'équipe. Il faut que les grossistes s'y mettent ainsi que les gens de Valpiro, les gens de l'aéroport, de la Ville. Il faut s'assurer qu'on puisse tenter de tirer notre épingle du jeu de ce changement », indique M. Brouillard.

L'homme d'affaires espère que les grossistes de la région vont maintenir leurs relations avec les détaillants dans le Nord pour s'assurer que le transport de nourriture se fasse encore à partir de Val-d'Or.

Le député d'Abitibi-Baie-James-Nunavik-Eeyou, Yvon Lévesque, est moins optimiste. « Étant donné que le plus gros détaillant dans toutes les communautés du Nord, c'est Northern Store situé à Winnipeg, pour lui, la proximité, ça va être Winnipeg et les achats vont se faire probablement à partir de Winnipeg », craint M. Lévesque

Le député d'Abitibi-Baie-James-Nunavik-Eeyou va présenter une motion à Ottawa pour exiger des explications du ministre des Affaires indiennes et du Nord du Canada, Chuck Strahl.

Le gouvernement a annoncé une nouvelle liste des communautés admissibles au programme Nutrition Nord Canada. Elle sera en vigueur le 3 octobre prochain. Il prévoit terminer la mise en oeuvre complète du programme le 1er avril 2011.

CANADA - QUÉBEC : PÊCHE AU CRABE - TROP PEU, TROP TARD

Mise à jour le mercredi 26 mai 2010 à 15 h 03


L'industrie gaspésienne du crabe et les pêcheurs doutent de la pertinence de la consultation effectuée à Grande-Rivière par le Comité permanent des pêches de la Chambre des communes. Le comité est formé de députés fédéraux représentant chacun des partis à Ottawa.

Cette consultation fait suite à l'une des plus importantes diminutions de quotas de crabe des neiges dans le sud du golfe Saint-Laurent, ce qui fait dire aux crabiers et aux industriels que c'est trop peu, trop tard.

Le principal reproche adressé au gouvernement fédéral concerne l'absence de mesures d'atténuation qui auraient dû accompagner la réduction de quotas de 63 %. L'industrie de la pêche croit que sans un programme spécifique, les pêcheurs et les travailleurs d'usine connaîtront des difficultés financières.

En effet, en raison de la diminution des quotas, la pêche au crabe a duré quatre semaines cette année plutôt que 10. Certains travailleurs ne pourront donc même pas se qualifier pour l'assurance-emploi.

Les crabiers soutiennent que Pêches et Océans Canada a trop distribué de quotas par le passé aux flottilles qui ont souffert du moratoire sur la morue.

Après Grande-Rivière, la consultation du comité permanent se poursuivra en Atlantique. Le comité doit ensuite faire ses recommandations à la ministre des Pêches, Gail Shea.

QUÉBEC : ACCÈS AUX TABLETTES – L'INDUSTRIE ALIMENTAIRE EN PARTIE RESPONSABLE, CROIT IGA

Affaires - Alimentation
Écrit par Marie-Eve Fournier
Jeudi, 17 juin 2010 17:59
Mise à jour le Jeudi, 17 juin 2010 18:58

Il n’est pas rare d’entendre nos producteurs maraîchers et nos transformateurs du secteur agroalimentaire raconter à quel point ils ont de la difficulté à vendre de leurs produits aux trois grandes chaînes d’alimentation présentes dans la province (Loblaw, IGA et Metro).

Compliqué de parler à la bonne personne; coûts élevés pour faire partie de la liste des heureux élus (les frais de listing, dans le jargon); coûts élevés pour avoir de l’espace sur une tablette ou pire, un congélateur; difficulté de produire le volume nécessaire pour toujours suffire à la demande quand on est petit; coûts élevés pour que son produit soit annoncé dans la circulaire, ristournes, etc.»

Au cours d’une rencontre avec la presse, le président d’IGA Québec, Marc Poulin, a convenu que ce n’était pas toujours évident pour les producteurs et les manufacturiers. Par contre, il a insisté sur le fait qu’ils étaient en partie responsables de leurs malheurs.

Marc Poulin, président d’IGA Québec. Photo d'archives Chantal Poirier

«Malgré nos efforts, les producteurs disent qu’ils ont de la difficulté à atteindre les tablettes. Ils pensent que c’est un droit acquis. C’est une méconnaissance de ce que ça prend pour commercialiser un produit.»

«Ils connaissent leur produit, mais ne savent pas comment le commercialiser», a-t-il ajouté, ce qui crée un véritable «gouffre» entre les producteurs et les consommateurs.

Selon Marc Poulin, plusieurs transformateurs n’innovent pas et se contentent de faire du «me too», c'est-à-dire des produits qui ressemblent beaucoup à ce qui existe déjà sur le marché. «Nos producteurs ont de la difficulté à faire des produits différenciés. Et à expliquer la différence quand il y en a une. [....] Un produit différencié peut faire sa place sur les tablettes.»

«Pour le consommateur, 18 sortes de miels identiques, ça ne fait pas une section intéressante.»

Cet argument est rejeté du revers de la main par Sylvie Cloutier, du Conseil de la transformation agroalimentaire et des produits de consommation (CTAC), «Au Québec, on est reconnus pour être innovateurs dans le secteur agroalimentaire. D’ailleurs, les gagnants du concours Tendances et innovations du Sial, cette année, ce sont tous des produits du Québec.»

Beaucoup plus de nouveaux produits que de nouveaux magasins

L’un des problèmes que rencontrent les détaillants en alimentation est le manque d’espace pour loger tous les nouveaux produits. «L’offre est trois fois supérieure à ce qu’un supermarché peut contenir», précise Marc Poulin. Pourtant, au cours des 10 dernières années, la superficie moyenne des supermarchés a doublé.

«Il faut faire des choix. Quand on entre un produit, faut en sortir un autre. Et quand on entre un nouveau produit, il faut qu’il se vende plus que l’ancien. Un nouveau produit, c’est un risque. (....) C’est une décision qui demande du courage.»

Nouveau partenariat avec l’industrie du fromage

Pour «remplir le gouffre» qui s’est créé entre les producteurs québécois et les consommateurs, IGA a annoncé la création d’un partenariat avec 8 fromagers. Leurs 11 fromages ont instantanément eux accès aux 263 IGA de la province.

En outre, ils bénéficieront de l’expertise de mise en marché et de marketing du détaillant et n’auront pas à payer certains frais, comme les frais de listing qui donnent un accès au catalogue des produits parmi lesquels les marchands propriétaires peuvent choisir.

Des promotions en circulaire et des dégustations en magasin viendront appuyer la campagne de promotion. L’idée est de dire aux gens «ce que ça goûte». Devant un brie ou un camembert, le consommateur a une idée du goût qui l’attend, devant un Voyageur ou un Ste-Anne, c’est moins évident.

Les fromages artisanaux choisis par IGA proviennent de toutes les régions du Québec et composent un panier varié qui sera bien identifié en magasin, promet-on. Le concept de panier donne un peu de répit aux petits fromagersqui pourraient ne pas toujours être en mesure de suffire à la demande. Si une sorte de fromage manque pendant quelques jours, les consommateurs pourront se rabattre sur une autre, a-t-on expliqué.

L’investissement d’IGA dans le projet, qui a pris un an, est de 250 000$. Plus tard, d’autres fromages pourraient s’ajouter. La chaîne de supermarchés souhaite ainsi venir en aide à «une industrie malmenée depuis la crise de la listériose, en 2008» et «faire connaître les gens derrière les produits artisanaux».

Le concept de partenariat devrait normalement être étendu à d’autres catégories d’aliments, mais Marc Poulin a refusé de donner des exemples pour ne pas que ses concurrents lui volent l’idée.

CODEX ALIMENTARIUS IMPLEMENTED???? OIL SPILL DISTRACTED US!

Topic started on 17-6-2010 @ 08:52 PM by berrygurrl

Alright guys, Was the oil spill a distraction to pass this?!
Codex Alimentarius

Here is an article that I found relating to it as well:

By Barbara H. Peterson

We knew that CODEX was right around the corner, and here it is, live and in color. Barry Soetoro, AKA Barack Hussein Obama, Imposter in Chief, on June 10, 2010, issued an Executive Order – Establishing the National Prevention, Health Promotion, and Public Health Council. In short, the CODEX council. The entire Executive Order is attached, but please read this part and understand just what it is saying:

“Section 6 (g) contains specific plans to ensure that all prevention programs outside the Department of Health and Human Services are based on the science-based guidelines developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention under subsection (d) of this section.”

In other words, ALL prevention programs, even those outside of the umbrella of the Department of Health and Human Services, must align with CDC guidelines, which are “science-based.” What do we take for prevention? Herbs and vitamins. Herbs that you grow in your backyard and vitamins that are not approved by your doctor do not fall under these “science-based” guidelines, and are not allowed. Therefore, this will effectively open the door to outlawing ALL disease prevention practices that use herbs and vitamins not prescribed by a doctor, and implement CODEX ALIMENTARIUS right here in the good old U.S.A. Thank you, Semra Orhon Hughes, for the heads up!

Source: Barry Soetoro, Imposter in Chief

It has been spoken of before and even warned. So by Obama passing the Obama Health Care that helped set up the Codex Alimentarius Agenda to control and regulate food, organics, and supplements under governmental standards.

I hate to spread fear but its about awareness and knowledge of what's going on.

Pay attention to the man behind the curtain, not the show that's being played out, even though I have no idea how we would have even stopped this.....

Anyways, Much love to all things will get better, the worse it gets the more we will wake up!

PRODUITS ALIMENTAIRES : IL FAUT RÉGULER POUR LUTTER CONTRE LA SPÉCULATION

Oui, c'est surtout pour pouvoir avoir un total contrôle sur l'alimentation. Ne vous faites pas avoir par leur beau discours mielleux.



23 juin 2010 – Une certaine régulation des marchés à terme des produits alimentaires de base est souhaitable, estime l'Organisation des Nations Unies pour l'alimentation et l'agriculture (FAO), mais toute intervention devra être prudente et se garder d'imposer des limites strictes ou une interdiction formelle sur ces transactions.

Dans une note de synthèse publiée mercredi, la FAO souligne que la flambée mondiale des prix alimentaires il y a deux ans « pourrait avoir été amplifiée par la spéculation sur les marchés. Néanmoins, la limitation - ou l'interdiction - des transactions spéculatives pourrait faire plus de mal que de bien ».

Si la spéculation à terme semble avoir affecté les prix à court terme, les efforts de réduction de la spéculation pourraient avoir des conséquences involontaires à plus long terme, indique le document.

Toute limitation pourrait « détourner les spéculateurs des transactions et réduire de ce fait les liquidités des marchés disponibles pour garantir la couverture des risques ».

Les contrats à terme comportent l'obligation formelle de vendre ou d'acheter une certaine quantité de produit à un prix et à une échéance fixés à l'avance. Ils offrent ainsi aux agriculteurs et aux négociants un moyen important de se protéger ("hedge") contre les risques de fluctuations des prix.

Toutefois, seulement 2% des contrats à terme aboutissent effectivement à la livraison de la denrée matérielle, car ils sont généralement négociés avant leur date d'expiration. Ainsi, ces contrats, ou obligations, attirent un nombre croissant de spéculateurs financiers et investisseurs, dans la mesure où ils offrent une rentabilité attrayante par rapport aux actions et aux obligations.

Les grands fonds spécialisés dans les contrats sur marchandises détiennent désormais environ 25-35% de tous les contrats agricoles et sont devenus une source importante de liquidités pour le marché.

Mais en cas d'envolée des prix, les mécanismes d'intervention sur les marchés à terme pourraient détourner les spéculateurs des négociations et réduire les liquidités disponibles afin de garantir la couverture des risques.

En conséquence, « les propositions de création d'un fonds international d'intervention face aux hausses de prix pourraient donc ne pas être la meilleure solution », met en garde la note de synthèse. « Qui plus est, un fonds de ce genre exigerait des ressources exorbitantes pour lutter efficacement contre la spéculation ».

Au lieu de cela, des mesures de régulation devraient viser essentiellement à améliorer la confiance dans le bon fonctionnement du marché, notamment en renforçant la transparence et la quantité d'informations disponibles sur les négociations, ou en enquêtant de près sur les comportements suspects des opérateurs, comme le pratique déjà l'organe de tutelle du marché des Etats-Unis.

USA : THERE'S NO EASY SOLUTION FOR THE PUZZLING FISH KILL IN ST. JOHNS

Fish kill in St. Johns isn't related to annual cycle
Posted: June 26, 2010 - 10:40pm



Jon M. Fletcher/The Times-Union

A dead red fish floats belly up in the St. Johns River north of the Buckman Bridge Monday, June 7, 2010. A multitude of dead red fish have been reported for the past two weeks with the cause being unknow at present.

By Jim Sutton

If you think the month-long fish kill on the St. Johns River is an annual event that just came early this year — think again.

That's the message that two men with close ties to the river want you to know.

The persistent plague of dead fish on the St. Johns that began around Memorial Day isn't caused by a cycle of summer oxygen depletion, insists Jimmy Orth, the executive director of the St. Johns Riverkeeper.

"This kill is unprecedented," he said. He explained that fish kills due to low oxygen levels are typically confined to smaller areas, not as widespread as the problem has become.

Fish continue to die in an area from roughly the Buckman Bridge south to Lake George — where the algal bloom is the worst.

Liz Miller, environmental manager of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, said in an e-mail last week that dissolved oxygen is monitored by the St. Johns River Water Management District throughout the river — from Lake George to two miles north of Palatka.

"Monitoring at these stations has not indicated any D.O. [dissolved oxygen] crashes" at those sites, she said.

As of Thursday, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's Fish Kill Hotline had received 290 calls regarding the St. Johns River. Catalina Brown, who oversees the hotline, said the frequency of calls is slowing. But Orth counters that the number of dead and dying fish is not diminishing — only the phone calls.

"Most people will call once, not every time they see a dead fish."

Quinton White, the executive director of the marine science institute at Jacksonville University, said that an algal bloom called aphanizomenon has been identified in the river. The more common blue-green algae are microcystis. He said that the former appears to be more numerous in the river this year.

That bloom, he says, is a tricky one. It can release several types of toxins — or no toxins — depending on a myriad of environmental conditions in the river.

The FWC's lab in St. Petersburg received fresh, dead fish immediately after the fish kill became apparent. At that time, biologists said it would take up to three weeks for tissue samples to be checked for toxins. At mid-week, Brown said that her understanding was that the samples would be ready next week, at which time evaluation would begin.

White said the timetable is understandable.

"This isn't 'CSI' [the television show] where DNA samples are done in minutes. ... These things take time ... scientists are being scientists," White said. He said the lab is also being inundated with sampling from the Gulf oil spill.

White said that last week the St. Pete lab sent staff to Jacksonville University to sample more recently killed fish. "They did necropsies on site," he said.

He said they found lesions in the brains of some redfish. "I'm not sure what else," White said.

That, White says, points to toxicity. He said his best guess — without the tissue sampling data — is that the toxin is acting like a hemorrhagic poison, much like spider and snake venoms.

"The blood is the transport system for it," said.

White said that he's received reports from the area of the Rudder Club — adjacent to the Buckman Bridge — of water birds that mainly eat small fish regurgitating stomach contents.

He said more hardy fish are dying — such as redfish, gars and skates — because they're more the apex predators in the river. Toxins would be more likely to build up in their systems.

Ciguatera poisoning is an example of this ,and is usually found in larger barracuda. The toxin, in that case, are produced by dinoflagellates that typically grow on marine algae. Little fish eat the algae; bigger fish eat them, and so on. The higher up the food chain you go, the more the toxin can accumulate in the fatty tissue of the fish.

A major difference, however, is that Ciguatera toxin does not seem to harm the fish, only the humans eating it.

Regardless of the results of the tissue sampling, White said that the prognosis isn't something the public is going to want to hear.

"There will be no quick or easy solution" to whatever is happening. Identifying the problem isn't likely to make it go away.

Kim Kilpatrick's Bio

by Kim Kilpatrick juillet 8, 2010 4:42

Could the BP oil spill be cleaned up faster if BP buys back its own spilled oil from fishermen and other boat owners along the Gulf Coast? American Geographical Society President Jerome Dobson thinks so. Dobson has come up with a unique solution for the Deepwater Horizon Gulf of Mexico oil spill cleanup. Dobson’s plan, which some are calling “cash for crude,” calls for BP to buy back recovered oil, giving fishermen, recreational boaters, and other boat owners a chance to get involved in in the BP oil spill containment.

Dobson’s plan calls for BP to buy back its oil at a price that will encourage out-of-work fishermen, recreational boaters, and other boat owners to go out, skim oil off the surface of the sea, and bring it back to port -- safely contained. Such a plan could provide out-of-work fishermen, seasonal tourist industry workers, and other boat owners with much needed income to replace some of what they have lost to the oil spill. It would also have a spillover (no pun intended) effect on related businesses, such as boat storage facilities and marinas, and would stimulate local economies along the Gulf Coast.

Currently, BP has about 550 boats deployed around the oil spill, skimming oil off the water. But there are more than 30,000 boats on the Gulf Coast -- many of them currently sitting unused in marinas and in boat storage because fishermen cannot fish and tourists are avoiding the Gulf Coast this season.

“Buy back your oil,” Dobson wrote in a plea to BP printed in the Southeast Missourian. “Engage the public. Trust private enterprise. Trust the judgment and ingenuity of American workers....offer to buy back your oil at a price that will entice them to skim and deliver it to you. There’s probably no other coast on Earth that has as much readily available capacity as the Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi stretch, including barges, tankers, fishing boats, recreational boats -- and an incredibly resourceful workforce.”

Dobson has suggested that his plan be dubbed “Operation Dunkirk,” after the World War II evacuation in which small boats, working together, carried 330,000 Allied soldiers from France back to England before they could be captured by Hitler’s quickly approaching troops.

Dobson is a professor of geography at the University of Kansas. He is also the president of the American Geographical Society (AGS), the oldest geographical organization in the United States, which has endorsed his suggestion. At a recent meeting, the AGS board exhorted BP to try “Operation Dunkirk.” It also encouraged state governments to compel Gulf coast oil refineries to buy back recovered oil at a fair market price.

New Orleans Mayor Mitchell Landrieu made a similar plea in his State of the City address this afternoon.

“Just this week, tar balls and oil sheen entered into Lake Pontchartrain,” Landrieu noted gravely. “We’ve put in place four layers of defense, fortified with barges and boom. And when oil made its way past these barriers, skimmers and local boats were immediately deployed to clean it up.” Commenting that BP had, at his request, provided an oil spill response training program for 500 local residents, Landrieu urged President Barack Obama to implement stricter oversight procedures for offshore drillers and remarked, “What people really want is the opportunity to work....Our mission is clear. Cap the hole. Capture the oil. Clean the coast. Compensate the families. Get back to work. This is an American tragedy that requires an American response.”

Gulf Coast fishermen need help from somewhere -- and they are not especially interested in charity. Many are attending meetings in their local communities to find out how to clean up hazardous materials. BP has started training local residents, handing out in return certificates that state that according to “BP Gulf of Mexico Operations,” residents who have completed the training are certified to participate in “GoM Spill Response Efforts,” should they be needed. BP has also set up several “Unified Command Centers,” where it trains 250 offshore workers at a time to help in the oil cleanup. BP’s four command centers are in Houma, Louisiana; Houston, Texas; Mobile, Alabama; and St. Petersburg, Florida.

To find out how much oil was recovered today, you can visit BP’s “Gulf of Mexico Response” website. But, as of July 7, that site was only reporting on oil recovered through the new cap containment system -- not on oil skimmed off the surface of the sea by cleanup workers.

To see an interactive graphic showing the spread of the oil spill from April 22 (day 3) to July 6, visit the New Orleans Time-Picayune’s website.

The developing dispute over the sale of raw milk in the United States has seen a farmer fined $4,000, a predawn raid prompted by the "dangers" of the product and even a comment from a government official that, "You have cows. You produce food for human consumption" as a reason for an inspection of private property.

Now supplies of raw milk and other products have been confiscated from a farm and a distribution point in California for alleged violations of a long list of various government rules, such as permit requirements.

But the ultimate solution to the enforcement of a patchwork of permits, licenses and regulations across the nation probably will be a court ruling in a case brought by the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, according to a spokesman.

The case argues, contrary to allegations by the FDA, that everyone has the right to travel across state lines with raw dairy products in their possession, that everyone has the right to consume the foods of their choice, that parents have the right to feed their children the foods of their choice and that all have the right to be responsible for their own health.

Now it's statism on our plate! Mark Levin's manifesto – 'Liberty and Tyranny' – provides the antidote to its growing stranglehold

"We believe we are breaking new ground in this case," Gary Cox, the fund's general counsel, told WND earlier. "Yet in a way, we are really asking the court to expressly recognize what our Founding Fathers implied in the Declaration of Independence and in the Constitution."

The organization brought the lawsuit earlier this year to overturn the federal ban that prohibits raw milk for human consumption in interstate commerce. The lawsuit alleges the federal rules on the issue are unconstitutional and outside the FDA's statutory authority as applied to members of the group.

The government responded by asking the court to dismiss the lawsuit out of hand, and the case at this point awaits the judge's decision on the motion.

In one of the latest battles, investigators entered Rawsome Foods in Venice, Calif., to track down jugs of raw milk in a walk-in cooler. Also taken at the same time – while a raid also was going on at a nearby farm, one of Rawsome's suppliers – were blocks of unpasteurized goat cheese, according to published reports.

Kennedy told WND the latest raids highlight the need for a resolution in the challenge his organization is raising to the laws, rules and regulations with which producers and consumers must cope.

According to a Los Angeles Times report on the Venice case, California and 10 other states allow "licensed" dairies to sell raw milk, and another 20 states let people buy such products from farms or participate in a cooperative program.

The newspaper's video showed officers entering what appears to be a supply room with their guns drawn.

Other states have other varying rules.

"There are just so many rules and regulations, and [they are] so overbroad," Kennedy told WND. "The bureaucracy claims they cover these private contractual arrangements. We need some court rulings."

He said one recent case – although it was in Canada – found the government should not interfere with private transactions between a farmer and a consumer. But recent raids in Minnesota and in Venice prove that such feelings, if they exist in the U.S., still haven't the weight of regulations.

"The only victims really are people who lose their health [if they lose access to natural foods]," he said.

Farm-to-Consumer officials earlier told WND a decision in their lawsuit "will either ensure that people have fundamental rights endowed to them by their Creator, or that the people have no rights except those that are conferred upon them by government."

"Our research shows that this nation has a long history of consuming raw dairy products and that FDA's prohibition against taking raw dairy for human consumption across state lines runs counter to that national history," Kennedy added.

One plaintiff in that case is Georgia resident Eric Wagoner, who was ordered by an FDA employee in a confrontation just months ago to dump out milk obtained in South Carolina and brought to him in Georgia.

More than 100 gallons of milk soaked into the Georgia dirt:

In the Venice case, publicized by the Times, government agents entered the store with a search warrant and took products they considered suspect.

"I still can't believe they took our yogurt," Rawsome volunteer Sea J. Jones told the newspaper. "There's a medical-marijuana shop a couple miles away, and they're raiding us because we're selling raw dairy products?"

The essence of the conflict is between regulators who say they have a responsibility to "protect" the public from dangerous complications possible from using raw milk and consumers who find their health better when they use unpasteurized products instead of those run through heat or chemical treatments.

In the Rawsome case, while it is legal for licensed dairies in California to sell raw milk, regulators said the organization failed to have proper permits and licenses. Agents from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, the FDA, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and others confiscated 17 coolers with honey, milk, cane syrup and other products.

Also monitoring and reporting on such cases is the National Independent Consumers and Farmers Association.

According to a report on the Axis of Logic, a volunteer-run news and opinion site, the Rawsome raid was accompanied by one involving 20 agents at Sharon Palmer's farm in Ventura County.

But the report noted the raids "appear to be happening ever more frequently."

It noted early in June, Minnesota enforcers shut down a "traditional foods" warehouse in the state.

Wisconsin also has launched three raids over the past few weeks, and there was one case in which a farmer was prosecuted for refusing to give authorities information about his customers.

In response to the raw-milk lawsuit, the government's motion to dismiss claimed Americans have no fundamental right to choose what food they can have.

"There is no 'deeply rooted' historical tradition of unfettered access to foods of all kinds," stated the document signed by U.S. Attorney Stephanie Rose, assistant Martha Fagg and Roger Gural, trial attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice.

"Plaintiffs' assertion of a 'fundamental right to their own bodily and physical health, which includes what foods they do and do not choose to consume for themselves and their families' is similarly unavailing because plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to obtain any food they wish," the government has argued.

The lawsuit focuses on a set of FDA regulations that largely bans consumers from buying raw milk and taking it across state lines, even for their own consumption, and the decision is expected to set a precedent for further evaluations of the process.

WND has reported several times on fed crackdowns on producers of raw milk for friends and neighbors, including the recent case in which agents arrived to inspect a private property belonging to Dan Allgyer in Pennsylvania at 5 a.m.

The incident was followed by a report a few days later of a proposal in Congress that critics say would do for the nation's food supply what the new health-care-reform law has done for health-care resources.

"S. 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010, may be the most dangerous bill in the history of the U.S.," asserted Steve Green on the Food Freedom blog. "It is to our food what the bailout was to our economy, only we can live without money."

The plan is sponsored by U.S. Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., who explains the legislation "is a critical step toward equipping the FDA with the authorities and funding it needs to regulate what is now a global marketplace for food, drugs, devices and cosmetics."

His website explains, "The legislation requires foreign and domestic food facilities to have safety plans in place to prevent food hazards before they occur, increases the frequency of inspections. Additionally, it provides strong, flexible enforcement tools, including mandatory recall."

The proposal cleared the U.S. House last year but has been languishing in the Senate because of a full calendar of legislation. It creates a long list of new requirements for food-producing entities to meet the demands of the secretary of agriculture.

UN AGENCY SEEKS TO BOOST ROLE OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES IN FIGHT AGAINST HUNGER



Maasai women in Tanzania make paste from a mkunde kunde tree to treat animals infected with worms

26 November 2010 – The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is seeking to boost cooperation and DIALOGUE with the world’s indigenous populations in the fight against hunger.

The new “FAO Policy on Indigenous and Tribal Peoples” aims to ensure that indigenous people are given more consideration in all relevant aspects of the agency’s work.

“With the preparation of this policy paper, FAO aspires to play an important role in the international community's efforts to ensure a better life for indigenous peoples and rural populations,
” said FAO Director General Jacques Diouf in the preface to the report. “The fight against hunger cannot be won without them.”

The policy is designed to foster better exchange of knowledge and ideas between indigenous populations and the Rome-based organization. It gives guidance to the agency’s headquarters and regional staff, urging more systematic and responsible engagement with indigenous peoples.

Issues such as land tenure, sustainable resource management and the preservation of traditional knowledge and food systems are of particular importance. Indigenous populations possess specialized knowledge about natural resources and diversity and often have coping strategies for the effects of climate change.

FAO’s new policy notes that the erosion of traditional skills possessed by indigenous people works against efforts to achieve food security and sustainable development. With indigenous and tribal peoples comprising around five per cent of the world's population but about 15 per cent of the world’s poorest people, they are particularly at risk of a failure to address the problems.

A number of UN agencies worked together closely with indigenous representatives to formulate the new policy, which is based on international legal instruments such as the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, adopted in 2007.

FOOD SAFETY BILL CELEBRATES WIN, BUT FACES NEW BATTLE FROM THE PEOPLE

by Angie Ress - Staff Writer, Restore the Republic
For Immediate Release
Contact: press@restoretherepublic.com

CHICAGO, IL | The battle for "food safety" celebrated a win in Tuesday night but the real losers were the American people. The bill known as the "Food Safety Modernization Act" S.510 swept the Senate floor by a 48 vote margin. Of the most notable votes whose outcomes were most unexpected were maverick John McCain and Tea Partier Scott Brown. McCain voted against the big government bill in a likely effort to avoid explaining himself on the campaign trail in 2012, while Brown clearly deviated once again from his claimed "Tea Party" roots by voting to squash the rights of Farmers and the inevitable rise of food prices for the poor.

The Natural Solutions Foundation released this statement, "Sen Coburn said the bill will raise food prices; add 1.5 billion to deficit; add unfunded state mandates. It will not increase food safety one bite."

The voices echoing off the walls of the Senate chambers were not the only ones in DC that night. Organizations from across the political landscape mobilized the grassroots in a unifying call to oppose the Bill. Among the national action groups who rallied the troops were Downsize DC, Campaign for Liberty, American Policy Center and Restore the Republic.

Blogs and youtubes set modems ablaze and caused increased internet traffic across the web as websites like Natural News and Health Freedom Foundation pumped out the facts.

In response to the call to action a flurry of phones calls, emails and FAXes flooded Washington DC and inundated the Senate Staffers. Most notably was the volume of hard paper FAXes delivered by Restore the Republic's new FAX Blast service at PatriotResponse.com

In a interview, Ali Rizvi, CEO of GripeGenine, the technology partner for PatriotResponse.com reported, "We've delivered 904 FAXes, so far, for the Patriot Response Oppose S. 510 campaign."

Gary Franchi the Campaign Manager and Founder of PatriotResponse.com stated, "The Opposition Campaign to S.510 has dominated our actions thus far, showing how important this issue is to the American people."

Rizvi continued, "Since the site launch we have delivered a total of 1743 FAXes for Patriot Responders."

Understanding, but not accepting the defeat in the Senate, Franchi declared, "We will not let this pass, it's moving to the House now, and we're prepared to fight it there too, the new Campaign has already been created."

Referring to the new opposition campaign at http://PatriotResponse.com/blast_away/oppose-s510-food-safety-bill Franchi continued, "If it passes the house we're left with no choice but to take it to the State Legislatures for nullification."

Rizvi spoke of the next phase of the Patriot Response website plan, "The GripeGenie team is committed to doing whatever it takes to deliver on our promise to provide the same FAX Blast access to State Legislative bodies."

"Nullification is the key once all remedies are exhausted at the Federal level, and we're very close to taking our fight there," Franchi remarked between productions of his weekly show the Reality Report.

Rizvi concluded, "The numbers of activists participating, and faxes getting to Congress in just a month's time are very encouraging. We are proud to be a partner with Restore the Republic and its members of the Freedom Movement."

The total Senate Roll Call vote for S. 510 is below. To take action now against the House version of S. 510 please visit http://PatriotResponse.com/blast_away/oppose-s510-food-safety-bill

L'OMS SE LANCE DANS UNE CLASSIFICATION MONDIALE DE LA MÉDECINE TRADITIONNELLE

Un autre contrôle total de la part, cette fois-ci de l'OMS, qui va décider ce qui est bien pour nous ou pas. Pourtant, nous voyons depuis quelques années que la médecine traditionnelle est attaquée de plein front par ces mêmes "experts" internationaux, qui désirent retirer du marché toutes les vitamines naturelles et criminaliser ceux qui vendraient ces produits.

En prenant le contrôle de ce domaine, le peuple serait soumis, une fois de plus, à un nouveau marché contrôlé par cette élite mondiale, sans réellement connaître les dangers de consommation et l'efficacité des nouveaux produits qui seraient mis sur le marché. Que se cache-t-il donc derrière ce projet? Suivons la situation de près, chers amis.
       



7 décembre 2010 – Pour la première fois de l'histoire, l'Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS) va développer une classification mondiale de la médecine traditionnelle, ouvrant ainsi la voie à une véritable évaluation des bénéfices de cette médecine, principale source de soins pour de nombreuses communauté d'Asie, d'Afrique et d'Amérique latine, et de plus en plus en Europe et en Amérique du Nord.

Dans un communiqué rendu public mardi, l'OMS indique que le projet, baptisé « Classification internationale de la médecine traditionnelle » doit déboucher « sur la mise en place d'une base de données internationale permettant d'organiser les pratiques de cette médecine, en répertoriant les terminologies et en proposant une classification des diagnostics et des méthodes d'interventions ».

L'OMS définit la médecine traditionnelle comme « la somme des connaissances, des compétences et des pratiques basées sur les théories, les croyances et les expériences propres aux différentes cultures, et qui sont utilisées pour prévenir, diagnostiquer, soulager ou soigner des souffrances physique et mentales ».

Dans son communiqué, l'organisation souligne que « dans certains pays asiatiques et africains, 80% de la population dépend de la médecine traditionnelle pour les soins de santé primaires ». Elle rappelle aussi que la médecine traditionnelle, dont les traitements à base de plantes sont les plus populaires, est utilisée depuis des milliers d'années dans certaines communautés.

« Nous reconnaissons que l'utilisation de la médecine traditionnelle est très répandue. Pour beaucoup de gens - en particulier dans le Pacifique occidental, en Asie du Sud-est, en Afrique et en Amérique latine - la médecine traditionnelle est la principale source de soins de santé », a expliqué la Directrice générale adjointe du département de l'innovation et de l'information de l'OMS, Marie-Paule Kieny.

« Partout dans le monde, l'utilisation de plantes médicinales, de l'acupuncture, et d'autres pratiques de médecine traditionnelle est en augmentation, mais un classement mondial des terminologies, des pratiques, des outils fait pourtant toujours défaut », a-t-elle poursuivi.

Selon l'OMS, si « plusieurs pays ont créé leurs standards nationaux pour la classification de la médecine traditionnelle, il n'existe pas de plateforme internationale permettant l'harmonisation des données pour les usages cliniques, épidémiologiques ou statistiques ».

« Dans la mesure où des populations nouvelles adoptent des pratiques de médecine traditionnelle, des défis émergent, à commencer par l'élaboration de réglementation de ces pratiques », estime l'OMS, qui établira cette classification mondiale « en se concentrant initialement sur les pratiques en vigueur en Chine, au Japon et en République de Corée qui disposent déjà de leur système de classification ».

L'OMS créera ensuite une plateforme interactive sur Internet, accessible à tous, et présentant les termes, les concepts et les pratiques utilisés dans la médecine traditionnelle.

« Il existe un réel besoin d'information pour permettre aux chercheurs et aux responsables politiques de suivre et d'organiser l'usage, la sécurité, l'efficacité et les dépenses » liés à cette médecine, a conclu Marie-Paule Kieny.

UN TO DEVELOP FIRST-EVER INFORMATION STANDARDS FOR TRADITIONAL MEDICINE



Many developing countries use traditional medicine to help meet some of their primary health care needs

7 December 2010 – The United Nations health agency is set to develop the first-ever global information standards for traditional medicine, which is a primary source of health care for many people in parts of Asia, Africa and Latin America and is increasingly being used in Europe and North America.

The International Classification of Traditional Medicine project will assist in creating an evidence base for traditional medicine – producing terminologies and classifications for diagnoses and interventions, according to a news release by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Traditional medicine, as defined by WHO, is the sum total of knowledge, skills and practices based on the theories, beliefs and experiences indigenous to different cultures that are used to maintain health, as well as to prevent, diagnose, improve or treat physical and mental illnesses.

In some Asian and African countries, the agency points out, 80 per cent of the population depend on traditional medicine for primary health care.

Traditional medicine, of which herbal treatments are the most popular, has been used in some communities for thousands of years. As traditional medicine practices are adopted by new populations there are challenges such as developing national policy and regulation and ensuring safety, effectiveness and quality.

The classification will initially focus on traditional medicine practices from China, Japan and the Republic of Korea that have evolved and spread worldwide.

“We recognize that the use of traditional medicine is widespread. For many people – especially in the Western Pacific, South-east Asia, Africa and Latin America – traditional medicine is the primary source of health care,” said Marie-Paule Kieny, WHO’s Assistant Director-General of Innovation, Information, Evidence and Research.

“Throughout the rest of the world, particularly Europe and North America, use of herbal medicines, acupuncture, and other traditional medicine practices is increasing. Global classification and terminology tools, for traditional medicine, however, have been lacking.”

The International Classification of Traditional Medicine will have an interactive web-based platform to allow users from all countries to document the terms and concepts used in traditional medicine.

“Several countries have created national standards for the classification of traditional medicine but there is no international platform that allows the harmonization of data for clinical, epidemiological and statistical use,” said Dr. Kieny.

“There is a need for this information to allow clinicians, researchers and policy-makers to comprehensively monitor safety, efficacy, use, spending and trends in health care.”

OTTAWA – The federal health minister will soon have the power to recall dangerous products after the Senate passed a new consumer protection law, despite a split between Liberal and Tory senators.

Bill C-36 became law late Monday night after a contentious ride through the Senate, where Liberal senators tried to make changes they said would better protect people's privacy.

Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq says the department's now fast-tracking the regulations required to put the law in place, though she doesn't have a final date yet.

A Health Canada official also couldn't say how many full-time inspectors will be put on the file.

The first product to have the law applied to it could be children's jewelry. Health Canada said this fall they've found several products with dangerous levels of cadmium. Aglukkaq asked the industry to stop selling the jewelry, but didn't have the power to do anything else.

“Over the next few months, we will decide whether the voluntary ban is working and we will establish safe limits for cadmium in children's jewelry,” Aglukkaq said.

The new rules ban making, importing, advertising or selling any products that pose an unreasonable danger. They also require industry to report serious incidents and increase the penalties for breaking the rules.

MPs agreed to fast-track the bill through the House after two previous attempts failed. The old law hadn't been updated in 42 years and didn't allow the government to recall products found to be dangerous.

The president of one industry association that pushed for the legislation says she's thrilled it finally became law.

“It's a good bill, it's good legislation,” said Shannon Coombs, president of the Canadian Consumer Specialty Products Association.

Coombs says the department will be able to hire more inspectors because there was money tied to passing the law.

Aglukkaq was critical of the senators who voted against the law.

“Last night was disappointing. The Liberal senators did not support this legislation and really, it sends a very clear message that the Liberal senators are voting against the health and safety of Canadians,” she said.

FEDS ORDER FARMER TO DESTROY HIS OWN WHEAT CROPS: THE SHOCKING REVELATIONS OF WICKARD VS FILBURN

Tuesday, December 21, 2010
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
Editor of NaturalNews.com

(NaturalNews) In arguing for S.501, the "Food Safety Modernization Act," there are all sorts of attorneys, legislators and internet commentators who keep claiming, "The government won't try to control the food production of small farms." They say, "Your backyard garden is safe" and that the feds won't come knocking on your door to control your seeds or foods.

As usual, these pushers of Big Government are utterly ignorant of the history in their own country. Because as you'll learn right here, not only CAN the U.S. government control and dictate to single-family farms what they can grow in their own backyards; the government has already blatantly done so!

In this article, I'll share with you the full and true story of how Big Government has already run rampant over the rights of individuals to grow their own food -- I'll even cite the US Supreme Court decision that "legalized" this tyranny.

How the tyrants came after a farmer named Roscoe Filburn
It all starts with a farmer named Roscoe Filburn, a modest farmer who grew wheat in his own back yard in order to feed his chickens.

One day, a U.S. government official showed up at his farm. Noting that Filburn was growing a lot of wheat, this government official determined that Filburn was growing too much wheat and ordered Filburn to destroy his wheat crops and pay a large fine to the federal government.

The year was 1940, you see. And through a highly protectionist policy, the federal government had decided to artificially drive up the prices of wheat by limiting the amount of wheat that could be grown on any given acre. This is all part of Big Government's "infinite wisdom" of trying to somehow improve prosperity by destroying food and impairing economic productivity. (Be wary any time the government says it's going to "solve problems" for you.)

The federal government, of course, claims authority over all commerce (even when such claims are blatantly in violation of the limitations placed upon government by the Constitution). But Roscoe Filburn wasn't selling his wheat to anyone. Thus, he was not engaged in interstate commerce. He wasn't growing wheat as something to use for commerce at all, in fact. He was simply growing wheat in his back yard and feeding it to his chickens. That's not commerce. That's just growing your own food.

But get this: The government insisted he pay a fine and destroy his wheat, so Filburn took the government to court, arguing that the federal government had no right to tell a man to destroy his food crops just because they wanted to protect some sort of artificially high prices in the wheat market.

This case eventually went to the US Supreme Court. It's now known as Wickard v. Filburn, and it is one of the most famous US Supreme Court decisions ever rendered because it represents a gross expansion of the tyranny of the federal government.

The US Supreme Court sided with government tyranny

The US Supreme Court, you see, ruled that Roscoe Filburn's wheat could be regulated and destroyed by the federal government simply because Roscoe's wheat production might reduce the amount of wheat he bought from other wheat producers and therefore could impact interstate trade.

Now stay with me on this, because this is a really, really important point to understand.

The federal government claimed authority under the Commerce Clause of the US Constitution (Article 1, Section 8), even though the Commerce Clause was originally written primarily to prevent states from erecting tariffs, not to allow the federal government to control interstate trade. But thanks to the twisted interpretation of the government -- and believe me, the government will twist every interpretation it can in an effort to assert more power over the population -- the feds claimed that Filburn's growing of his own wheat effectively reduced interstate commerce in wheat. Therefore, they reasoned, they could regulate his backyard wheat production (and order him to destroy his wheat).

Because of this US Supreme Court decision in 1942, it now means the federal government can order you to halt food production in your own back yard by arguing that when you grow your own food, the amount of food you purchase from other food providers is reduced, meaning that your food production impacts interstate trade and therefore can be fully controlled by the federal government.

In other words, the federal government claims the authority right now -- even without the Food Safety Modernization Act -- to knock on your door and order you at gunpoint to destroy all the food in your garden, your greenhouse or your farm. They can order you to destroy all seeds in your possession and all food harvested from your own garden. And they can do all this with the full protection of U.S. law by simply citing the precedent set in Wickard v. Filburn in 1942 as ruled by the US Supreme Court.

Why the naysayers will probably starve

Still think you have the right to grow your own food? I've heard all sorts of naysayers claiming that S.510 -- the Food Safety Modernization Act -- is no threat to small growers and family farms. They say the fears about S.510 are overblown and that the government can't possibly shut down your backyard gardens or small, local vegetable farms. They say this with the kind of smug certainty you might typically hear from a doctor who thinks he knows everything about human health (but who actually knows nothing about nutrition).

These naysayers tend to operate out of an assumption that Big Government will never take away their rights and freedoms and that expanding the reach of agencies such as the TSA, FDA, DEA and FTC with even more power and more armed agents is a good thing because the government always takes care of the people. We need more protection from e.coli, they argue, so let's unleash 4,000 armed FDA agents instead to protect us from bacteria. But who will protect us from the FDA?

What these ignorant naysayers don't understand is that government is constantly trying to expand its power to the point of tyranny. As a current example of this, look at what just happened with Chavez in Venezuela. He has now been granted what are essentially dictatorial powers over the country (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dy...). Chavez is now the King of Venezuela, and whatever he says is now law. Venezuelan citizens are now slaves to his tyranny, and they must follow his orders or be executed.

The United States is moving in precisely the same direction. First, power gets stripped away from the People little by little. Then it gets concentrated in the hands of a few regulatory agencies who write their own laws and who stay in power year after year because none of their officials are elected. (Think the FDA commissioner is elected by the people? Think again...) And then, over time, a few powerful individuals concentrate power from those agencies into their own hands. Before long, the country is run by a handful of power-crazed tyrants who disregard all freedoms and rights of the People.

This is precisely what the FDA is doing with the Food Safety Modernization Act. Backed by yet more funding and a new army of agents, plus the Supreme Court ruling that says the federal government can order you to destroy the food you're growing in your own back yard, the FDA can now pillage the countryside, going from farm to farm and house to house, burning fields and ordering the citizenry to destroy their plants, seeds and crops. This is exactly what they've been doing to raw milk producers and food coops, by the way (http://www.naturalnews.com/030136_R...).

That is no exaggeration. It is a documented "legal" precedent established in Wickard vs Filburn, and it can be used at any moment to destroy the ability of people to grow their own food, thereby making these people totally dependent on dead processed food (which is always FDA approved if it's dead, of course) made in food factories that churn out nutritional deficiencies and death.

What will you eat when the government destroys your local food supply?

You see, under the argument that your backyard garden "impacts interstate commerce," the federal government can order you to simply spray Roundup on your entire garden in order to kill it.

What will you eat then? When the GMO crops suffer a mass catastrophic failure, and the monocultured wheat dies from a global viral infection called ug99 "rust" (http://theemergencyfoodsupply.com/a...), what will you eat?

If the government has its way, you won't eat at all. You'll starve to death under the "protection" of the food safety thugs at the FDA who don't believe any "live" food is safe in the first place (hence their war against raw milk).

Those people who have the foresight to grow their own gardens and protect their food sources from the tyranny of the federal government may actually have a chance at surviving. The rest will simply starve while waiting in government food lines where the feds hand out nutritionally worthless cheese and other depleted processed foods that Sesame Street absurdly thinks are "superfoods" (http://www.naturalnews.com/030626_m...).

Big Government declares war on the local food movement

Make no mistake, folks: the government is attempting to destroy the local food movement. They are trying to wipe out small, organic farms that compete with corporate agribiz in the same way the FDA has long plotted to destroy natural health supplement companies who compete with Big Pharma.

It's all about wiping out the little guys and protecting the monopoly markets of the largest and most influential corporations that are poisoning the earth and destroying your health. As Wickard vs Filburn clearly demonstrated, the government does not believe you have any natural right or Constitutional right to grow your own food. In fact, the government believes it has the right to order you to destroy your food at the time of its choosing.

Don't think this could happen to you? Filburn didn't either. The idea that his own government would show up at his door and order him to burn his field of wheat was simply unimaginable. Similarly, the idea that the FDA would tear across the countryside wiping out small family farms is unimaginable to many Americans today. But that's only because they don't know their own history and they put far too much faith in the flimsy idea that the government somehow, in some way, respects the rights and freedoms of the People.

The obvious falsehood of that idea is evident in the way we are all being treated by the TSA. Who would have thought, just two years ago, that we'd be subjected to government-enforced molestation at the hands of airport security screeners? That idea seems unthinkable at the time, much like the idea that the FDA could seize your garden seeds or order you to destroy your greenhouse crops. Yet such actions are already within the claimed power of the federal government... merely waiting to be invoked at the time of their choosing.

Traitors to freedom

All those who voted for S.510 -- which includes the entire U.S. Senate, Republicans and Democrats alike -- are traitors to the freedoms upon which America was founded. They have thrust our food supply into the hands of tyrants who are just waiting to exercise their control and "authority" over as many people as possible.

Five years ago, I joked that people might one day be arrested for smuggling broccoli across state lines. Today, that joke has become a sad reality. The mere act of growing food and selling it to your neighbor without government permission is about to become a criminal act. And no, small farms are not "exempt" from S.510. They must provide financial information and apply to the FDA to be granted exemption status. That sounds a lot like slaves begging for mercy from the king, doesn't it?

Keep the big picture in mind as you consider all this: When teens are poisoned by the aspartame in diet soda, the FDA does nothing. When children are given cancer by the sodium nitrite in hot dogs, the FDA does nothing. When countless thousands of Americans suffer heart attacks and cardiovascular disease each year from the partially-hydrogenated oils used throughout the food supply, the FDA does nothing. But when you grow fresh produce in your own back yard and carry it to your local farmer's market to sell it without government permission, you will be arrested by the FDA as a criminal.

Shame on all those who supported this bill. May history have mercy on their souls for the suffering and injustices they have unleashed upon us all.
