USDA Organic Seal

It’s Organic, but Does that Mean it’s Safer?

( & , New York Times) MOST of the chicken, fruit and vegetables in Ellen Devlin-Sample’s kitchen are organic. She thinks those foods taste better than their conventional counterparts. And she hopes they are healthier for her children.

Lately, though, she is not so sure.

The national outbreak of salmonella in products with peanuts has been particularly unsettling for shoppers like her who think organic food is safer.

My Commentary: “Organic” foods are simply foods grown naturally, without the use of chemical pesticides, fertilizers or hormones. REFINED FOOD PRODUCTS bearing the seal, “USDA ORGANIC,” are STILL processed in plants, where health and safety conditions within factor into the overall quality of the final product. Buying WHOLE FOODS that are washed and prepared in the home will significantly reduce the possibility of exposure to these types of bacterial and/or viral contaminants.

When buying eggs or milk, consider the treatment, diet and living conditions of livestock, as well. Go beyond the “organic” seal. Look for products that also say “cage-free” or “free-range,” and “vegetarian.”

A Short Review of the Film, “The International”

Rayn: I watched “The International.”

Keith M.: How Was It? IM Going To See it On Tuesday.

Rayn: It was good. The plot line could have been a little more involved, but it was worth seeing. It’s not easy to make a movie about the conspiracy of the International Banksters to cause war, exact regime political regime change, and profit from both sides of it!

(Mike Adams, NaturalNews) The FDA has effectively banned a naturally-occurring form of vitamin B6 called pyridoxamine by declaring it to be a drug, reports the American Association for Health Freedom. Responding to a petition filed by a drug company, the FDA declared pyridoxamine to be “a new drug.”

Now, any nutritional supplements containing pyridoxamine will be considered adulterated and illegal by the FDA, which may raid vitamin companies and seize such products. See the history of FDA raids on vitamin companies here: http://www.naturalnews.com/021791.html

My Commentary: The FDA, operating as the political and military arm of Big Pharmaceutical companies, incrementally attempts to eliminate its true competition: NATURE!
