More health freedom lost as U.S. House votes for corporate control

HealthFreedom‘Elected officials in the U.S. House of Representatives proved once more that they are the slaves of corporate giants, with no regard for the wishes of states, communities and citizens.

On Tuesday, July 14, 2015, Big Food and Monsanto won a decisive victory when the House approved a measure that bans mandatory labeling of genetically modified ingredients in food, and prevents cities, counties and states from banning labeling within what was once their jurisdictions.

Some U.S. counties and a couple of states have bans in place as they were concerned about small farms growing food the natural way that were being contaminated by neighboring GM crops. What will happen to them is unknown at this stage.

American health and other freedoms are becoming a thing of the past at warp speed.

Many countries around the world who value their food have listened to their citizens and banned GM crops, and some have ousted Monsanto after citizens protested, petitioned and took to the streets.

When society shifted from agrarian to industrial food production and outsourced their food to corporations, quality and nutritional value changed drastically. In exchange for cheap, nutrition-deficient food and big corporate profits, we traded away lovingly grown crops and food that provided the vitamins and minerals we need for optimal health.

And what did Americans get in return?

Alzheimer’s, autism, ADHD, cancer, diabetes, indigestion and stomach problems (from foods our natural bodies are unable to process properly), heart problems, obesity, and a host of other problems rare or unknown to our ancestors.

Now that Monsanto and its lesser cohorts ‘own’ U.S. Government, they are surging ahead to get the contrary uncooperatives in other countries under control by ongoing U.S. trade deals that contain pressure and threats against countries that try and protect their own traditional seed crops.

Through U.S. influence, Monsanto already controls up to 80 percent of the world’s seed stock. But apparently it wants to own 100 percent. “No food shall be grown that we don’t own.”

Tens of millions of peasant farmers around the world who were scorned, but at least able to feed themselves and their villages with traditional, old-fashioned food friendly to the body), have been put out of business and forced to work for corporate plantations (where they have been made ill or died from the poisons they work with), or drift into city ghettos to starve.

The traitorous, freedom-robbing bill passed by the House, now goes to the Senate. Who knows how senators will vote? Guess it depends on how much corporate money they depend on for re-election.

Never has it been more important for Americans to wake up and fight for what health freedoms we have left. After all, unless there are terrible things to hide, why shouldn’t Americans be able to know what is in their food and have the freedom to CHOOSE!?
