I am proud of the Polish bee farmers and their accomplishments to agriculture.
Poland is the first country to formally acknowledge the link between Monsanto’s genetically engineered corn and the Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) that’s been devastating bees around the world. What that means is that bees have been disappearing. If the bees disappear we are in big trouble because of their important role in pollination. And who has bought the leading research company for CCD? Well you guessed it! Monsanto
I saw this trailer on the film”Queen of the sun“. The film is about the disappearance of the bees. It is very interesting and frightening at the same time. This is what the Colony Collapse Disorder is about.
What that has to do with GMO? Well, in America there are no requirements to label GMO foods as you can see in this graph
Most governments are protecting the citizens and requiring labelling of GMO foods. But the general public in America does not even know what GMO is;
We need the FDA to regulate the GMO foods, so that we have a choice. We need the FDA on the people’s side for once and make labelling of GMO foods mandatory.
Go to www.labelgmo.org to learn more
Here is a video if you have never heard of Monsanto and where they come from. They are originally a chemical company so why are they in food production?

This is a statement from Cancer Truth:
Sugar is *NOT* your friend. It may feel like your friend when it comforts you (due to the beta-endorphin rush in your brain), but sugar is actually your enemy. Truth be told, regular consumption of sugary foods is one of the worst things that you can do to your health.
Here you can read the whole ” Sugar is the white death” article on cancer truth.
One of my favorite scientists Dr. Robert H. Lustig is participating in these educational videos from the University of California
Dr. Lustig has also been on 60 minutes talking about his research. It is inspirational to hear him talk against the food industry. He is stepping on many toes. My prediction is that there will be a massive kickback from those who have no sense of social responsibility and poison their fellow-men guilt free.
The first video I saw by Dr. Lustig is one hour and twenty-nine minutes. It is mind-blowing. He is turning everything we have believed about calorie intake before upside down.
So why do I think this is a big deal? Sugar is a drug. Why do I say that? I have been a drug addict and my drug of choice was sugar.The “problem” is that I did not gain weight. That sounds delightful doesn´t it? You know what? My body doesn´t think so. Thanks to an excellent dentist the consequences can not be seen. The damage to my digestive system is something I have to pay attention to every day. Sugar overconsumption is not friendly to the body, not even if you don´t gain weight..
But all in all I am thankful for the lesson. I have only one life. I have to try to live it in harmony with my body and my surroundings.
I put all three videos under “videos” if you want to safe them for later.

Are we deliberately being poisoned?
When thinking about toxins in food, we commonly connect it with pesticides used in the production. But mother nature is not perfect so we have to manipulate her and then we get the GMO foods. When the food is processed we add chemicals like Aspartame or MSG to make things taste better. Then we wrap the whole thing in BPA , the plastic chemical Bispenol A used in food packaging. Hungry?
Who is protecting the general public?
We wonder what happened and why people are getting sick? But none of these chemicals or additives are illegal. Lobbyists ensure that they will not be banned in the near future. With a big smile people making the decisions are poisoning their fellow-men in name of what? Money? So the 1% can gain more profit and the rest has to pay with their health?
The regulation comes from us, the people. We can not count on the regulators. That is why we have to be responsible and ask questions. Avoid foods that are conterminated. We need to educate ourselves and make the choices that we can live with, a healthy life.
FDA rules on continuing to allow BPA in food packaging.
Why is Bispenol-A or BPA not banned? FDA decided to let the show go on. FDA decided not ban the use of BPA in food packaging. That is amazing in light of the numerous research that show that BPA , is contributing to cancer, cardiovascular disease and probably best known cause of damage to the reproductive system especially in men. Here is more on the subject.
In the Video the research of Frederic Vam Saal is mentioned, his studies that low dosage of BPA has health risks. Especially concerning the reproductive system.

Dr.Vandana Shiva has fought for the health of seeds. She has educated the world on how GMO food is made. As I understand it the corn is taken and combined with pesticide and then grown. Lab rats suffer kidney and liver failure for eating these foods. What does it then do to us ?
What does GM do to our health? We have no idea. We eat vegetables and fruit in good faith. We think they are good nutrition. But what has been pointed out is that if they are not grown organically or non GMO what do we have?
I got this list sent from a friend; It makes sence. Try the difference in celery for instance. The organic ones are tasty and smell rich. The beauty of celery is that it can help balance water in the body and is helpful with sugar cravings.
Again I have to refer to Michael Pollan and his food rules. If it does not rot eventually it is not food!
I am fascinated by Dr. Vandana Shiva and her spirit. She is one of my heroes.

There have been some discussions about this article on the internet. Dr. Dwight Lundell argues that the low-fat diet is what is making us fat. His main argument though, is that low cholesterol diet is not going to prevent us … Continue reading
