by www.mercola.com

The National Research Council panel of the National Academy of Sciences suggests that more work needs to be done to ensure that genetically engineered salmon, corn and other organisms do not taint the food supply or wipe out other species.

Scientists have been trying to find newer technologies that could slow down or completely stop the movement of genetically engineered species, or the spread of their genes. According to the panel, these methods of ‘bioconfinement’ are still in the early research stages, especially the new roducts deemed hazardous, and show no complete guarantee that they can be kept under control.

U.S. Government Influenced by Sugar Industry

by www.mercola.com

The Bush administration has been putting the interests of businesses, particularly the sugar industry, ahead of the global fight against obesity.

Since 1990, successive U.S. governments have blocked the World Health Organization’s (WHO) call for action to reduce the national recommendation of sugar consumption from 25 percent to 10 percent. The Bush administration, which receives millions of dollars in funding from the sugar industry, argues that there is little evidence to prove that consuming too much sugar is a direct cause of obesity. The president believes fighting fat is a matter of the individual, not the state, and opposes WHO’s recommendation to reduce sugar consumption to 10 percent.

An Illusion that Keeps Us Sick

by Teresa Tsalaky

The myth that the doctor’s medicine is best

Let’s say you’ve decided you’re willing to take responsibility for your health. Now it’s time to take action, right? Well, not quite. First, there’s an illusion that you must thoroughly dismantle if you want to eliminate the biggest roadblock on the path back to health. This illusion is deeply ingrained. It’s so deeply ingrained in the American psyche, that it sounds crazy to argue that it’s a lie, a myth.

by Citizens for Health

Today, strong mainstream research continues to validate the positive impact dietary supplements are having on Americans’ overall health, while lowering healthcare costs and maintaining the strongest safety record of any regulated category. But legislators out to ‘protect’ consumers are threatening to remove safe products from market shelves and fundamentally alter the regulatory structure, the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA), responsible for increasing information and access to dietary supplements.

Government attack on ephedra cover for aspartame poisoning

Before you knowingly eat or drink a product sweetened with aspartame, read the article below. If you still aren’t convinced of aspartame’s lethality, go to the Mission Possible website at www.dorway.com and follow your investigative senses. If you still aren’t convinced that aspartame is an FDA-approved poison, then it must be your fate to become sick and eventually succumb to a painful death after suffering from a variety of chronic illnesses. Of course, you may luck out and be spared years of ill-health by suddenly, mercifully dropping dead from aspartame in the prime of your life. Pardon the harsh comments but there is a war going on and the battle is being waged in our bodies. Good soldiers don’t eat and drink the enemies’ weapons.

USDA Allows Irradiated Beef in Schools

by Washington Post Article

Last week, the U.S. Department of Agriculture lifted its ban on irradiated ground beef in the national school lunch program despite widespread concerns from parents and consumer groups about the safety of irradiated food products.

Currently USDA commodities account for all of the meat, poultry and cheese used in the program.
