Bill Gates Invests in Monsanto, Says GM Foods Are Needed

Bill Gates is a large investor in Monsanto. He purchased 500,000 shares of the biotech giant in 2010 because he feels Monsanto’s genetically modified foods are a tool that will help prevent starvation in poor nations. The same poor nations where thousands of farmers routinely commit suicide after being completely bankrupted by Monsanto’s overpriced and ineffective GM seeds. The same company that we recently exposed to be running ‘slave-like’ working conditions, forcing poor workers to operate the corn fields for 14 hours per day while withholding pay.

According to Gates, this is the company whose GMO crops are going to save the world from starvation. Of course, along with saving the world from starvation, GMO crops also bring along a large number of unwanted health and environmental effects. A review of 19 studies examining the safety of GMO crops found that consumption of GMO corn or soybeans can lead to significant organ disruptions in rats and mice – particularly in the liver and kidneys.

In 2008, a startling report uncovered Monsanto’s blatant abuse of poor farmers in very poor countries that would supposedly benefit from GMO crops. Thanks to an article in the Daily Mail, it was revealed that thousands of farmers were committing suicide after using Monsanto’s GM seeds. Due to failing harvests and drastically inflated prices, the bankrupt poor farmers began taking their lives — oftentimes drinking the very same chemical concoctions provided by Monsanto as a method of suicide.

“We are ruined now,” said the dead man’s 38-year-old wife. “We bought 100 grams of BT Cotton. Our crop failed twice. My husband had become depressed. He went out to his field, lay down in the cotton and swallowed insecticide.”

Actually, Monsanto conned the farmers into buying their GM seeds. These seeds were majorly overpriced and performed far worse than traditional seeds. Monsanto even went as far as to charge these poor farmers £10 for 100 grams of GM seed, while they could have purchased 1,000 times more traditional seeds for the same amount. The result? A career-ending harvest that led to mass farmer suicide.

I bring this to your attention to remind you that we all need to be vigilant. At this point in time, we still have a choice. However, more and more, GMO foods are showing up in the supermarket. If we allow this trend to continue, the health of our nation will be ruined.

 

US Government Buying Up Emergency Food Because of What is Coming

The U.S. government is stockpiling huge amounts of food and supplies in anticipation of something bad happening. Most probably officials are expecting a major economic crisis soon that will require large quantities of emergency food.

For a while, we have been hearing about the government storing emergency food. Many different prominent people in the long term storable food industry have revealed they have received huge orders for storable food from various U.S. government agencies. When government representatives were asked why so much food was being ordered, government sources have only said, “you know what is coming”, but did not elaborate further.

It is unclear if this is part of a larger food stockpiling program by the government. Non one could blame the government for storing emergency food. That is something that we all should be doing.

Actually, the government is taking emergency preparedness very seriously these days. For example, you can see video of a high-level NASA official urging NASA employees to develop preparedness plans for their own families.

But what if this is a sign of something bigger?

Early last year, FEMA issued an RFI (Request For Information) that inquired about the availability of 140 million meals of emergency food. Here is the RFI:

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) procures and stores pre-packaged commercial meals to support readiness capability for immediate distribution to disaster survivors routinely. The purpose of this Request for Information is to identify sources of supply for meals in support of disaster relief efforts based on a catastrophic disaster event within the New Madrid Fault System for a survivor population of 7M to be utilized for the sustainment of life during a 10-day period of operations. FEMA is considering the following specifications (14M meals per day):

  • Serving Size: 12 ounce (entree not to exceed 480 calorie count)
  • Maximum calories: 1200 and/or 1165 per meal
  • Protein parameters: 29g-37g kit
  • Trans Fat: 0
  • Saturated Fat: 13 grams (9 calories per gram)
  • Total Fat: 47 grams (less than 10% calories)
  • Maximum sodium: 800-930 mg

Requested Menus to include snacks (i.e. fruit mix, candy, chocolate/peanut butter squeezers, drink mix, condiments, and utensils). All meals/kits must have 36 months of remaining shelf life upon delivery. Packaging should be environmentally friendly.

What’s interesting is that 7 days after this particular RFI was issued, it was rescinded. However, this doesn’t mean they have stopped buying. It just means they have scrapped this RFI. Multiple reports have shown the Feds are still actively buying up emergency food, both freeze-dried food and dehydrated food.

While contemplating making your own preparations, just ask yourself why the US government would be doing it on such a large scale.

 

Here Are Some Economic Numbers From 2011 Too Crazy To Believe

Almost everyday, we are told the economy is getting better. I suppose if they say it enough times, that makes it so.

Here are some economic numbers that are rather frightening. These are exactly why several top economists are predicting wide-spread civil unrest in the US very soon.

These numbers are courtesy of The Economic Collapse Blog:

  1. If the number of Americans that “wanted jobs” was the same today as it was back in 2007, the “official” unemployment rate put out by the U.S. government would be up to 11 percent.
  2. A staggering 48 percent of all Americans are either considered to be “low income” or are living in poverty.
  3. Approximately 57 percent of all children in the United States are living in homes that are either considered to be “low income” or impoverished.
  4. There are fewer payroll jobs in the United States today than there were back in 2000 even though we have added 30 million extra people to the population since then
  5. Since December 2007, median household income in the United States has declined by a total of 6.8% once you account for inflation.
  6. The average amount of time that a worker stays unemployed in the United States is now over 40 weeks.
  7. One recent survey found that 77 percent of all U.S. small businesses do not plan to hire any more workers.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Freeze Dry and Dehydration Process of Wise Food Storage

The Wise Food Storage Company takes an innovative approach to long-term food storage and emergency preparedness. Their prepared entrees include both freeze-dried and dehydrated components, depending upon the food component.

They have done extensive evaluation, research, testing and have combined both freeze dry food and dehydrated food together to ensure optimal taste, texture and nutritional value. More expensive ingredients like peas and other vegetables are generally freeze-dried. Other ingredients like noodles and rice taste better when they are dehydrated.

Here are the Freeze-Dry and Dehydration Advantages:

  • long shelf life
  • With nearly all its water extracted, food is extremely light weight
  • With the addition of water, food is quickly and completely reconstituted
  • Wise Company customers enjoy peace of mind because of the food’s
  • Food maintains its original flavor, shape, color, and texture
  • Food retains its nutritional value
  • Food is condensed in size

Freeze-Dry Process

The freeze-drying process starts with the product being flash frozen and then is placed in a vacuum drying chamber. This procedure removes the majority of the water and moistening without affecting the taste, color, form or nutritional value of the food.

Dehydration Process

In dehydration, food is moved through a drying chamber where air removes the moisture. This occurs at low temperatures so that the nutritional content stays intact.
