The USification of Food

Along with it’s version of democracy, the USA spreads diabetes, heart disease and more

There’s an old family catchphrase that ‘your mother knows best’ that is often used in conjunction with ‘ask your mother’ or ‘ask your father’. Mother knows best as a phrase used to placate women in the patriarchal society whereas ask your mother or ask your father a fundamental phrases indicating blindness to the truth and an avoidance of responsibility.

The way of live for people of the USA has been to modulus, they stole the land they now occupy, exterminated around 100 million people and began to create an idealistic new existence based on liberty and freedom without any sense of guilt for their crimes

Milk and Osteoporaosis

Milk Destroys Your Bones From the Inside

Milk and animals as food have been consumed by us for thousands of years. When the livestock are healthy and the people consuming milk and milk products as they have done in India for perhaps tens of thousands of years with the milk is primarily the A2 variety which is further processed before consumption, milk products and the animals that produce them are healthy.

Where we come to the west, the milk is the A1 variety, cows often suffer harsh conditions and a percentage of their diet is made up of agricultural chemicals which is passed on to us through the milk and meat.

In terms of osteoporosis, after

Poisoning Humanity

Or what’s killing us

What future do our children have?

The toxic residues produced by industry over the past 2000 years have been conveniently overlooked. The Romans infamously used lead pipes and the lead drove them insane. More recently we switched to copper pipes but then it was discovered that as copper ages, the oxidised copper is harmful to our health and these were replaced with galvanised steel which were too expensive and today most people use plastic which presents another set of problems.

Modern society is driven by desires and some of them like access to clean water are vitally important whereas the desire for profits or to have the same stuff as one’s neighbours is totally

Aluminium Toxicity

A great construction material – but should we be eating it?

A roll of aluminium

Aluminium is an abundant and very useful mineral salt that’s refined and widely used to make vehicles, tools, building materials and cooking utensils. It’s also used to make the tools and machinery used to process and manufacture the products and foods we use everyday.

Aluminium is used as an additive in medicines, in almost all processed foods and beverages and many skin care products.

Scientists, and the powers and authorities that govern us think that aluminium is harmless and that there is no definitive evidence that aluminium is in anyway detrimental to our health.

Despite its prevalence in the environment, aluminium salts are not

Genetics and Golden Rice

The tip of a growing wedge into Asia

The topic of genetic engineering, only occurs in the mainstream media when groups like Greenpeace and other concerned citizens take action by destroying genetically modified crops. Yet most of our mainstream media has not bothered to look into the genetic modifications of food and its reporting mostly supports the corporate bias.

In the United States of America, it is estimated that genetically modified food can be found in about 80% of all processed food products and meat. Within the USA, the public has no right to know what foods are or are not geneticly modified and the genetics industry there has government endorsement and protection.

The primary reasons for growing genetically modified

Should we Be Concerned about Chlorine?

An elephant in the room

Over thousands of years we have polluted our environment and degraded our water supplies to such an extent that in most countries today, natural water is unsafe to drink. Chlorine has been hailed as a saviour against cholera and various other water-borne diseases; and rightfully so. Its disinfectant qualities have allowed communities to grow and prosper by providing disease-free tap water to homes and industry.

While chlorine has given us safer drinking water, long-term consumption of chlorine has contributed to a long list of related health problems including: cancer, heart disease and hardening of the arteries, premature ageing and senility. It’s not going to harm us immediately but the continuous long-term use has consequences that

The 1080 Debate

The people vs big brother

Fatally poisoned and waiting for death

1080 is a metabolic poison that is extremely toxic to all air-breathing organisms. It blocks the body’s muscle and organs ability to absorb energy from its food, and results in a slow and inhumane death, typically 8 -24 hours for birds, 2-4 days for large mammals. There is no known antidote for this deadly poison.

New Zealand has a very real problem with introduced species of plants and animals that are displacing all indigenous species. To control weeds, the country is pouring massive amounts of Roundup and other highly toxic weed killers over the land that end up in the food chain for us to consume.

Similarly,

Bio Oil

So what about Bio-Oil?

Bio-oil is a product promoted as “the product for scarring and skin care”, but when we look at the ingredients its hard to see why anyone would ever want to put it on their body!

What’s in it?

Like Johnson’s Baby Oil, the Bio-Oil base is mineral oil, a bi-product of petroleum and not designed for use on our skin as mineral oil acts as a layer that’s difficult to absorb, it clogs the pores which slows the skins’ ability to eliminate toxins.

Ingredient list

Botanicals. Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract (Calendula Oil) Lavandula Angustifolia Oil (Lavender Oil) … No problem here as these oils are actually good for your skin but, they exist in a

Oh McCain's

McCain Foods (Aust) Pty Ltd

The originally Canadian company McCain’s processes and sells frozen foods in Australasia and they have the motto, “oh McCain’s, you’ve done it again” implying that they’ve done something really wonderful. In terms of frozen vegetables this company is pretty much a household name so the other day I bought a packet of their frozen vegetables.

The supermarket chiller is full of many brands and because it was a familiar brand, I selected a bag of McCain’s frozen greens. My gaze didn’t take me much beyond the title, after all, veggies are veggies and later after preparing a meal, we sat down to eat. But the taste of McCain’s mixed vegetables proved to be so incredibly

The Consequences of Alcohol

And it’s impact on civilisation

It’s a well established fact that alcohol dulls the senses and over a long-term period destroys brain tissue. Yet we are sensory beings and we rely on our senses to perceive the world around us as well as to make sense of that world. Therefore alcohol in effect is destroying sensitivity to life; in other words, making drinkers stupid.

Civilisation is a recognition that one belongs to a collective. So if we look at ants, each colony is a unique civilisation in a similar way to us. As human beings we all share common traits, but our sense of civilisation depends on our language and upbringing.

When we look at human civilisation, in the West
