Food Fads

The Unnoticed Conspiracy: Food Faddism  (24 February 2012)

A recent "universal and dictatorial regime of dietary control ... is causing devastating changes in the health of the world's population ... In the decades following the social upheaval of the 60's, at about the same time as many other profound changes, the dietary habits of [the UK] were criticized [and] a new regimen came in..."

 

Food Control / Sustainability

Factory Fed Fish: Monsanto and Cargill's Plans for the Ocean  (17 July 2012)

"The mass cultivation of GM soybeans has a hugely detrimental environmental and health impact worldwide. As it stands, soy is widely used in our diets, in processed foods and found in most meat, as soy is fed to animals on CAFOs. The next 'natural' step, at least according to two of the largest stakeholders in the soy industry, Monsanto and food giant Cargill, is to make soy the feed of choice for factory-farmed fish around the world - a move they are misleadingly labelling as 'sustainable'..."

Obama and the Marxist Politburo Set to Use Food and Famine as a Weapon  (02 August 2009)

"History is an excellent teacher. In 1932 and 1933, six and possibly up to 20 million people in the Soviet Ukraine and Moldavia died from starvation due to Josef Stalin's efforts to crush Ukrainian nationalism and to implement his prescription of 'change' in the former Soviet Union when the Communist regime nationalized the food industry and forced all farms into collectives..."

Famine as Commerce  (01-15 August 2002)

"Some years back, a keynote speaker at the International Famine Centre at Cork, Ireland, detailed how maize was loaded on ships bound for Britain at the height oft great Irish potato famine that killed some 1.5 million people more than 150 years ago. He paused and then lamented, 'I wonder what kind of people lived at that time who were not even remotely offended at the sight of millions dying of hunger in the same village where the ships were being loaded'..."

 

Organic Food

Father Harassed by CPS for Feeding Kids Organic Food  (13 December 2010)

"A father of two was harassed and investigated by Child Protective Services and police for feeding his daughters organic food, refusing to make them drink fluoride-poisoned tap water and not having them injected with mercury-laden vaccines, all of which constitutes 'suspicious activity' in the new Sovietised America, a foretaste of what's to come once Big Sis' Wal-Mart spy campaign gets up and running..."

 

Raw Food

Raw Milk

No Deaths in 38 Years From This Raw Food - So Why is it Condemned?  (14 January 2012)

"There has not been a single death from drinking raw milk since collection of food safety data began in 1973. For comparison, there have been over 40 deaths from Pasteurized milk during that time period, and another 50 deaths from pasteurized cheese."  /  "[O]utbreaks of illness resulting from the consumption of pasteurized milk are kept from public knowledge, and escapes warnings from both [the U.S.] Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and [the U.S.] Food and Drug Administration [FDA]..."

FDA Says: Drinking This Natural Food is a Crime  (06 July 2011)

"It might have been consumed all over the world for thousands of years, but according to the FDA you don't have the right to make an educated choice about whether to feed it to your family. ... The war on raw milk, which is really an unconstitutional assault on one of your most basic rights, i.e. your right to choose what you want to eat and drink, is now in full swing and will likely intensify in the days ahead..."

FDA's Response to FTCLDF's Suit Over Interstate Raw Milk Ban  (06 May 2010)

"Growing numbers of people in [the US] are obtaining the foods of their choice through private contractual arrangements such as buyers; club agreements and herdshare contracts. FDA's position is that the agency can interfere with these arrangements because, in FDA's view, there is no fundamental right to enter into a private contract to the foods of choice from the source of choice..."

Vegetarianism and Veganism

The Great Vegan Backlash  (14 February 2019)

Readers' comments:  "As usual urban, metropolitan types can't be bothered to learn how livestock farming in the UK, almost always on land unsuitable fro crops, sustains land management including the wildlife. This in turn is a vital component of sustaining socially healthy rural communities"  /  "If we get rid of all farm animals, so no more sheep, cattle, pigs, chickens, turkeys, etc, what will be used instead of manure to fertilise the fields? Lots more chemicals that kill insects and other wildlife?"

Stop Shoving Veganism Down Our Throats  (13 February 2019)

"When I was 17 I went to stay with my favourite aunt, who lived in Sussex. She was a pescatarian, a vegetarian who ate fish. It was the first time in my life I had not eaten meat for a week and it initially made me feel very healthy. I returned home to South Africa and announced to my parents that I was now a vegetarian. As with so many good intentions, this path led me straight into dietary hell..."

The Vegan Controversy  (12 February 2019)

"Today, I had planned to write about the rise and seemingly unstoppable advance of full-on veganism. To clarify, I don't mean vegetarianism or simply avoiding meat to spare the suffering of animals. I mean the shunning of ALL products, whether edible or not, that involve animal ingredients, not so much as a personal choice but as an environmental statement ... on following up my own researches on the Net I found several facts:..."

Vegetarianism Isn't Just Bad, It's Bad For You  (18 August 2016)

"Most Western vegetarians I've met are either atheists or fans of some dubious Eastern creeds ... That's hardly surprising ... because Judaeo-Christianity precludes anthropomorphism, which is an essential part of many Eastern faiths. In our anthropocentric civilisation, killing animals doesn't constitute murder, as the more crazed vegetarians claim. In fact, the Western position of carnivorism was manifestly laid down in Genesis: 'Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.'..."

Veganism Isn't a Diet - It's an Ideology  (05 August 2016)

"The problem with veganism is that it too easily becomes an ideology, one underpinned by the ideals of purification, cleansing and asceticism. Like all ideologies, it is inevitably prone to extremism, intolerance and the appeals of dogma ... It is a religion of the self, of self-abnegation, self-denial and self-righteousness ... [of] narcissism, selfies, self-worship and virtue signalling..."

Ten Portions of Veg a Day?  (06 April 2014)

"In theory, I should be pleased to be told that henceforth I should eat only plants. After all, my family tease me that I eat so much green stuff my body is probably capable of photosynthesis..."

Videos and YouTubes

YOUTUBE:  Farmageddon  (17 April 2012)

"Americans' right to access fresh, healthy foods of their choice is under attack. Farmageddon tells the story of small, family farms that were providing safe, healthy foods to their communities and were forced to stop, sometimes through violent action, by agents of misguided government bureaucracies, and seeks to figure out why. ... Farmageddon stresses the urgency of food freedom. Though the film deals with intense scenes and dramatic situations, the overall tone is optimistic, encouraging farmers and consumers alike to take action to preserve individuals' rights to access food of their choice and farmers' rights to produce these foods."

 

Websites

Mercola.com - Take Control of Your Health

This site aims to "make you as healthy as can possibly be. This involves: (1) Providing the most up to date natural health information and resources that will most benefit you and, (2) Exposing corporate, government and mass media hype that diverts you away from what is truly best for your health and often to a path that leads straight to an early grave."

The Weston A. Price Foundation

"The Foundation is dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the human diet through education, research and activism. It supports a number of movements that contribute to this objective including accurate nutrition instruction, organic and biodynamic farming, pasture-feeding of livestock, community-supported farms, honest and informative labelling, prepared parenting and nurturing therapies. ... [We] stand united in the belief that modern technology should be harnessed as a servant to the wise and nurturing traditions of our ancestors rather than used as a force destructive to the environment and human health; and that science and knowledge can validate those traditions."

Health Impact News Daily

"HIND brings you the latest news regarding issues that impact your health you may find difficult to find in other media sources: Medicine Watch, Real Food Nutrition, Sustainable Agriculture, Alternative Health, Coconut Health, Created4Health, Videos. We learned first hand in the late 1990s and early 2000 that the truth regarding health and nutrition about fats and oils was NOT being published in the mainstream media. ... There are many other issues regarding your health that are NOT being published on the the mainstream media today, due to political and economic reasons, NOT scientific reason. We will publish the truth on this website."

Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund

"The FTCLDF ... is a non-profit organization whose members are joining together and pooling resources to: (1) Protect the constitutional right of the nation's family farms and artisan food producers to provide processed and unprocessed farm foods directly to consumers through any legal means; (2) Protect the constitutional right of consumers to obtain unprocessed and processed foods directly from family farms and artisan food producers; (3) Protect the nation's family farms and artisan food producers from harassment by federal, state, and local government interference with food production and/or food processing. The objective of FTCLDF is to defend the rights of sustainable family farms and artisan food producers to make their products available to consumers in a manner that protects, preserves and enhances the environment and its natural resources, products that include but are not limited to meat and meat products, poultry, eggs, raw milk and raw milk products, fruits and vegetable, lacto-fermented foods and beverages, prepared foods, and bread and other baked goods directly to consumers without a license or permit."

Hook and Son

"Our aim is to manage a dairy herd that is truly sustainable; caring for the wildlife and environment around us, whilst making the farm viable enough to support our family. We converted the farm to organic farming methods in 1998, achieving Soil Association certification in August 2000. This means that we farm without the use of any chemicals or routine antibiotics. We sell our milk on our two local milk rounds, farmers markets in London ... and also offer a pioneering nationwide delivery service. Delivering our milk to you straight from the farm means that not only is it extremely fresh, you also know the exact source of your milk. ... our milk is raw milk, it hasn't been pasteurised or homogenised, and nothing has been added or taken away. The pastures are free of fertilizers and pesticides. This means that our milk is extremely natural and pure. We work with nature, so that our cows are happy in a stress free environment. The national average life of a dairy cow is six years. Our cows' average age is nine!"

The Green Agenda

"We should all want to be wise and careful stewards of the beautiful planet we call home. But most of us realise that humans in general are not being good stewards. We are wasteful with our natural resources and have reduced biodiversity. Therefore, when we read about groups and organisations calling for a 'green revolution' and a new relationship between humanity and nature it is easy to agree with their ideas. However, certain aspects of the modern green movement that is permeating every segment of our society are not about protecting the environment. You don't have to dig very deep to discover the true beliefs of the influential leaders who are using genuine concerns about the environment to promote an agenda of fear and control..."

 

Books

All of the books recommended here should be obtainable from one or more of the online bookshops listed at usedbooksearch.net

The Little Green Book of Eco-Fascism  (2013)

"Do you believe we should bomb our economy back to the dark ages? Carpet our beautiful countryside with bat-chomping, bird-slicing eco-crucifixes? Indoctrinate our kids with scary North Korea-style propaganda nonsense in order to deal with the alleged perils of 'climate change'?  Neither does [this author]..."

Watermelons  (2011)

"If global warming isn't real then how come the ice caps are melting? Why would all the world's top scientists lie to us? What exactly is so wrong with biofuels, wind farms, carbon taxes, sustainability and preserving scarce resources for future generations? And what about Bangladesh, the drowning Maldives and all those endangered polar bears? [This author] has all the answers - and they're not the ones Al Gore would like you to hear. In Watermelons [this author] tells the shocking true story of how a handful of political activists, green campaigners and voodoo scientists engineered the world's biggest, most expensive and destructive outbreak of mass hysteria - one that threatens the very fabric of Western Civilisation. As the world stands on the brink of a new Great Depression, [this author's] message could not be more timely or urgent. In order to save our planet must we really surrender to the green movement's misanthropic tyranny? Or might there be a better way?"

The Whole Soy Story: The Dark Side of America's Favorite Health Food  (2005)

"Soy is NOT a health food, Soy is NOT the answer to world hunger, Soy is NOT a panacea, Soy has NOT even been proven safe. Hundreds of epidemiological, clinical and laboratory studies link soy to malnutrition, digestive problems, thyroid dysfunction, cognitive decline, reproductive disorders, immune system breakdown, even heart disease and cancer. Most at risk are children given soy formula, vegetarians who eat soy as their main source of protein and adults self-medicating with soy foods and supplements." ... "[This book] is a devastating and authoritative indictment of the safety of soy foods and a 'must read' for consumers who are under the misconception that soy foods promote health. Convincingly argued and extensively supported by the medical and scientific literature, it exposes the misleading propaganda used by the soy industry to promote the supposed benefits of this inferior food."

The Skeptical Environmentalist: Measuring the Real State of the World  (2001)

"The idea for this book was born in a bookstore in Los Angeles in February 1997. I was standing leafing through Wired Magazine and read an interview with the American economist Julian Simon, from the University of Maryland. He maintained that much of our traditional knowledge about the environment is quite simply based on preconceptions and poor statistics. Our doomsday conceptions of the environment are not correct. He stressed that he only used official statistics, which everyone has access to and can use to check his claims. I was provoked. I'm an old left-wing Greenpeace member and had for a long time been concerned about environmental questions..."
