Brasscheck TV: How Corporations Ruined Food (Food Industry Documentary) – Real Stories

When we walk into a supermarket, we assume that
we have the widest possible choice of healthy foods.
But in fact, over the course of the 20th century, our food
system was co-opted by corporate forces whose
interests do not lie in providing the public with fresh, healthy,
sustainably-produced food. Fortunately for
America, an alternative emerged from the counter-culture
of California in the late 1960s and early 1970s,
where a group of political anti-corporate protesters–led
by Alice Waters–voiced their dissent by creating
a food chain outside of the conventional system.
The unintended result was the birth of a vital
local-sustainable-organic food movement which has
brought back taste and variety to our tables.
FOOD FIGHT is a fascinating look at how American agricultural
policy and food culture developed in the
20th century, and how the California food movement has
created a counter-revolution against
big agribusiness.

Confessions of a Medical Heretic (Part Two)

Duty to Warn

new-logo25kohls

 By Gary G. Kohls, MD

 

Last week I wrote about some of the ethical concerns that I have had with the modern medical profession. Over my 40 years of practicing medicine I have experienced increasing frustration with its direction, mainly because the business of medicine has been increasingly distorting the ethics I was taught in medical school. The profession has become increasingly difficult to recognize over the 40 year span.

Like many other physicians who have tried to take the Hippocratic Oath seriously (“first do no harm”), I also tried to resist the increasing corporate influences that eventually made the once-honorable practice of medicine into a crass profit-making industry. I makes me sad to report that outside forces have gradually made us physicians into computer bound high class technicians that are largely prescribers/providers of Big Pharma’s often toxic and always unaffordable drugs. In the current profit-above-all-else era, it is not even remotely possible for us physicians to be the compassionate healers of the long-gone era that I knew.

Way too often, the money-making Big Business of medicine is being controlled by institutional shareholders  (who demand increasing dividends or increasing shareholder value) whose CEOs are often amoral Masters of Business Administration graduates who are equally at home leading Wall Street banks, tobacco companies, weapons manufacturers or brothels – or big clinics or hospitals. In this era the term “business ethics” (just like “military justice”) is an oxymoron.

So last week, when my column deadline approached and I discovered that I had written twice as many words as my editor allowed (a theoretical 1600 word limit per week), I had to quit writing and figure out how to cut the column in half. (I also realized that the title could be – and should be – the title of a book-length treatise, but that notion will have to wait for some future time. For now, what follows approximates the last half of last week’s unbridged column.

New BOUGHT Documentary reveals insidious truth behind Vaccines, GMO’s & Big Pharma.

Friends: I just watched the new documentary “Bought”, which dealt with the amoral, politically powerful and obscenely wealthy for-profit corporate entities (in the BigPharma, BigFood, BigAgriculture, BigChemical, BigMedicine, BigMedia sectors) that are behind the American epidemics of chronic illnesses “of unknown origin” (like dementia, Parkinson’s, autism, obesity, asthma, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, inflammatory bowel diseases, learning disorders, adhd, colony collapse disorder, vaccine injuries, pesticide/herbicide-mediated illnesses, GMO food-mediated illnesses, drug-induced illnesses, etc).

The incidence of chronic childhood diseases caused by vaccine injuries, toxic (and nutritionally depleted) foods, toxic air, soil and water, toxic chemicals and toxic prescription drugs in our fully-vaccinated American children is approaching 50%!!!

America cannot long sustain – just from a financial perspective – the increasing catastrophic trends revealed in this film, but the deaf, dumb and blind, lobbyist-infiltrated US Congress in DC is currently planning to pass BigPharma-written legislation to make mandatory every untested-for-efficacy-and-safety vaccine mandated by the equally corrupted-by-industry CDC and FDA – all thanks to the ever-present billionaire captains of industry who are their paymasters who bribe them with campaign “contributions” and other perks.

All those vulnerable children who have been made chronically and incurably ill (and thus permanent patients) by those big businesses listed above will be under the chronic care of physicians who will, because they can’t bring themselves to admit that they have been and are currently still part of the problem, continue poisoning these victimized and permanently disabled patients with more vaccines and drugs through their adolescence, adulthood and early deaths.

As the producers of “Bought” say, this is the most important documentary you will ever see. You can watch it for free until March 6, 2015 at the link below. Then purchase a copy or two to show it to any potentially open-minded acquaintances that know that something is happening but don’t quite know what it is. Please, for the sake of the future of our children, grandchildren and our country, pass this information on widely. Gary

OBESITY CONSPIRACY: The U.S. Government Scandal that’s Really Making You Fat

1 Comment

Live link: MERCOLA.com

The Root of the Problem

I believe many of our society’s chronic health problems could be resolved if attention was paid, at the highest levels of government, to the root problem – our agricultural subsidies.

If growers of subsidized fresh vegetables were in a clear majority, you might start to see some fine advertising campaigns promoting the consumption of those veggies…

Unfortunately, the Department of Agriculture is deeply entrenched with the agri-business, and current legislations protect the profits of these large industries at the expense of public health. More

Insurance discrimination: You can drink, over eat and suck exhaust fumes all day…but if you smoke…

re: Home Depot and discriminatory insurance rates

Dear Mr. Blake,

I have a concern about a new policy for health coverage. I have been off work due to a collapsed disk in my neck and have recently returned. I have seen a new policy for health benefits indicating I will have a higher premium due to the fact that I smoke. This concerns me on many levels and I question the standard that is set in doing so.

Understand, I will not defend smoking, since I understand the possible health risks due to smoking; however, I do question where this type of policy will take us. I would wonder what the next step will be. I am concerned that, one would assume, similar policies will be enacted for other reasons such as being overweight, being on psychotropic drugs, ingesting fast food with its many chemicals, or using alcohol. Am I to understand that only smoking is cause for higher medical costs? What about associates that live in areas of air quality concerns such as large cities?

There are several (actually 1000’s) of studies done by the EPA linking severe health conditions with exposure to gas fumes and fumes of chemicals that can be found in our very own aisles. Will individuals working in garden have to pay a higher premium since they are exposed to chemicals on a daily basis? I feel these are valid questions that need to be considered. There are also several studies linking obesity and diet to health risks such as high cholesterol, heart issues, diabetes, and general damage to all organs. The list of side effects from taking most medications, such as psychotropic drugs prescribed by doctors, is typically longer than the positive effects. I would suggest that these individuals pay a higher premium since their burden on the health insurance would obviously be substantial. More

Are You Getting Enough Fat in Your Diet?

Leave a comment

Are you getting enough fat in your diet? This may seem like an improbable question to most people and, indeed, after decades of being told by the FDA, the medical establishment and the media that fat is “bad” for us, it seems highly improbable that anyone would ask such a question. However, I ask you, nevertheless, and I believe I can supply the answer, as well: no.

For decades, we have been told that dietary fat – which was common to everyone’s diet for prior centuries, with no ill effects that we are aware of – is somehow the culprit in causing obesity and heart disease. Yet, as I shall show you, this is not only untrue, it is an outright lie, designed to deliberately create a population of obese sick people to sell drugs and medical services to, and that the medical establishment, the pharmaceuticals industry and the processed foods industry have all joined forces to promote, perpetuate and to profit immensely from this. They have, as their goal, not only the creation of a society of sick people, but actually seek to grow and expand that population of sick people, as these people are their bread and butter. Without a large population of people eating the foods that make them fat and sick, without a large population of people then seeking medical treatment for their various illnesses, without a large population of people buying various prescription drugs to “treat” their diseases, these three industries would go broke. The media aids this conspiracy – and it is a conspiracy – by creating and disseminating the propaganda necessary to convince us all, for decades, to eat a low fat diet and fat-free foods and to “just ask your doctor” for prescription drugs to treat the results of such a diet.

We all have a great deal of brainwashing to undo, regarding the role of fat in our diet. Contrary to the prevailing view that fat is “bad” for you, it is not only beneficial, but vital to your survival – and it does not cause atherosclerosis and heart disease, nor is it a causal factor in the development of cancer. In fact, fat actually protects your body from these conditions.

But, the main point I want to make is that the epidemic of obesity in our society is not caused by fat in our diet, but by the lack of fat in our diet. It is the introduction and widespread promotion of the low-fat diet and fat-free foods that have lead directly to the rise of obesity. How? First, you need to understand how your body works.

The body stores calories – from any type of food – as fat in order to build up a reserve energy source in the event of “famine.” If you are not supplying enough fat – or no fat at all – to your body, then it will be prompted to store more of what you eat as fat. Thus, the low-fat diet – and, in particular, fat-free foods, which are also laden with sugar – actually prompt more fat storage, not less. The result of eating a low-fat diet, then, is obesity. In contrast, if you are supplying your body with adequate dietary fat, your body will not feel the need to store as much fat. Thus, eating a high-fat diet has two effects: first, it supplies the body with enough fat to keep it from storing fat, and secondly, it satisfies your appetite more readily, thus keeping you from overeating.

If you have been eating a low fat diet and then change to a high fat diet, you will lose body fat as a result because your body will then store less fat, giving it an opportunity to burn off what it has stored.

Another myth that has been perpetrated upon us is that there is “good” fat and “bad” fat. The fact is that the so-called “bad” fat; i. e., saturated fat, is actually better for you than mono-unsaturated and poly-unsaturated fats – and is certainly better than trans-fats. Why? Because, again, it better satisfies your body’s need for fat and less of it is required to do so.
