Big Pharma Plot to Steal Your Vitality
For those of you who care about your health and thereby the nature of the food you eat, you really need to know about the proposed future of organic foods, conventional food handling practices, and vitamin regulation. This is a complex issue -- for the full story, please visit this informative website -- so I will take one angle in all of this, the case of vitamin C. Vitamin C is an antioxidant and also a vitamin essential in many cellular processes. Vitamin C is water soluble, so effectively you can never overdose, because your body can clear excesses from your system without any harm being done to your body, and with only minimal discomfort. Being aware of the "overdose" symptoms makes it easy to keep to a proper dosage. Doses in the grams (g) are often recommended for those suffering infections (including colds and flus). Yet the world government wants to limit your access to only 225 mg a day (0.225 g), a dose which would be ineffective at protecting you against damage resulting from excessive environmental stresses, colds, flus, or infections.
"If there were ever a time to rise up and stage a health freedom revolt,
this is it. This is a cause worthy of a fight, because you're fighting for the
protection of the very laws of nature. Basic human biochemistry demands that we
intake certain nutrients in order to live. Human bodies simply do not
manufacture vitamin C, and thus we must ingest it. Banning this vitamin is akin
to outlawing fresh air, clean water or natural sunlight."
This nouveau nutritional regulation isn't proposed just for us over-fed Europeans or Americans (for those of you who have already heard about it), this is a world-wide food and vitamin regulation program, under the auspices of the UN's World Health Organization, set to go into effect as of 2009. It amounts to outlawing nutritionally releveant levels of supplements and vitamins, while simultaneously promoting irradiation of foods -- a practice that potentially degrades essential nutrients in the foods we eat, especially at high doses of irradiation. It also proposes to laxen organic farming standards (just in time for Wal-Mart's foray into the organic foods market?) and keep genetically modified foods hidden from consumers.

One doctor believes this nutritional policy has arisen due to his finding that vitamin C can prevent arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and heart attacks. Big Pharma won't be able to sell you expensive drugs for your heart and circulatory health if you find out you can pop a few vitamins for a cure. Read this paper, if you'd like to learn more about this doctor's research with vitamin C and cardiovascular health.
With the cost of health care soaring, we need more than ever to focus on preventative health care methods and naturopathic curing. Already we have seen a spike in interest in organic and natural foods. The problem is that these foods can never be mass-marketed. We live in a factory farmed reality. There just aren't enough green pastures these days for everyone to feast from, and farmers are still unappreciated in this askew social structure. Small farmers are the tireless saints who keep you alive and healthy, they deserve our adoration, respect, and support.
I want to see all of you at the Farmer's Market this spring!
