CIFOR Releases Guidelines to Foodborne Outbreak Response; FSWG Issues Key Control Findings

By Rady Ananda

The Council to Improve Foodborne Outbreak Response just released its Guidelines for Foodborne Outbreak Response. Earlier this month, Obama’s new Food Safety Working Group, headed by Monsanto executive Michael Taylor, released its Key Control Findings. Decentralizing the food supply would provide the greatest food security. Instead the Administration seeks omnipotent control.

 On Wednesday, CIFOR released a 200-page set of Guidelines for Foodborne Outbreak Response. CIFOR’s guidelines are targeted to local, state and federal agencies and provide model practices used in foodborne disease outbreaks, including planning, detection, investigation, control and prevention.

HR 2749 and shades of Hitler

Cherry growers face ten years in prison and/or $7.5 million in penalties for citing scientific studies.

Why?

Because cherries beat the pants off non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for controlling pain and lowering inflammation.  There would go billions in selling aspirin, tylenol, aleve, and the other NSAIDs, that coincidentally kill well over 16,500 people a year.  

The pharmaceutical companies (along with Monsanto and biotech and agribusiness) are behind HR 2749.  

Cherries, incidentally, don’t kill anyone.

Ending free speech around nutrition occurred during the WWII as well, when Hitler made any passing of nutritional information punishable by death.  Interestingly, some of the very same German pharmaceutical companies that backed Hitler (and produced gas for the gas chambers and killed prisoners with vaccines) and may have benefited from his “punishable by death” ruling against nutritional information, are involved in these bills.  Those companies – Bayer, BASF and Hoescht (Aventis) designed Codex which is hidden inside HR 2749 (there is a lot hidden in that bill) – a massive plan to declare all nutrients toxins and remove them from access, as well as to mandate pesticides (even banned ones), irradiation of all food, GMO approval, and make passing nutritional information, even to friends and family, a crime.  

Meanwhile, in protecting NSAIDs and keeping people from knowledge of cherries, the FDA protects the drug companies so they can keep making money, while routinely killing thousands a year. More

U.S. national security threatened by Mexican Drug Cartels

A dozen bound and tortured bodies were discovered dumped on the side of a remote highway in Michoacán. Police found the latest victims of the ongoing battle between rival drug traffickers on Monday. A threatening message was located near the beaten bodies of 11 men and one woman piled up and wrapped in a tarp, police revealed at the scene. Sadly, this has become a frequent occurrence: Last week, police found four bodies and a menacing note in the same spot.

Despite thousands of Mexican troops dispatched to numerous drug hot spots throughout the country, bloodshed has not decreased. U.S. authorities have offered a helping hand, pledging $1.4 billion through the Merida initiative in an attempt to help Mexico combat the cartels.

This reoccurring brutality stems from opposing drug cartels fighting over cocaine smuggling routes running up from Central America into the United States, the world’s top drug consumer. Because Mexico’s drug trade has become a very lucrative business—pulling in billions a year—having control of these routes ensures a hand in that money. More
