The Tiny State Of Vermont Is Forcing GMO Labeling Nationwide

When Vermont passed a law in 2014 that required all genetically engineered food sold in the state to be labeled by July 1, 2016, it likely had no idea it would force disclosure beyond its own borders.

With the deadline to comply fast-approaching, several major food producers have announced plans to voluntarily label products containing genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, not only in the small New England state, but nationwide.

But when natural health proponents scored another victory in December 2015, Kraft-Heinz didn’t say a word. And clean food activists had no idea the change had taken place. And what one would think would be a major announcement, Kraft-Heinz decided to remove artificial dyes from its Macaroni and Cheese products.

Chemical Added To Hot Dogs, Sausage And Bacon Now Being Developed By USDA As Deadly Bait That Poisons Wild Hogs To Death… And You’re EATING It For Breakfast!

A preservative chemical that’s routinely added to hot dogs, beef jerky, bacon and breakfast sausage is now being deployed by government researchers as a fatal bait to poison wild hogs to death. Development of the deadly hog poison is being pursued by none other than the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the same agency that legalizes the same toxic chemical to be used in processed meat products approved for human consumption.

Fashionable Algae Water Bottle Maintains Shape Until Empty, Then It Breaks Down

By Amanda Froelich

This innovative solution to plastic pollution will reduce the amount of waste piling up in landfills and swirling around in the oceans.

To say that plastic is a burden to the environment is an understatement. Every year, enough plastic is thrown “away” to circle the globe four times; however, the material takes approximately 1,000 years to break down. This means that while one might throw it in the trash, it’s either piling up in landfills, being swallowed by unsuspecting wildlife, or swirling in one of the huge garbage patches in the oceans...

Can Your Car Be Hacked?

Imagine driving down the freeway at 70-miles per hour, and suddenly your vehicle starts to accelerate all by itself. Or if the steering wheel starts to turn by itself, the radio volume maxes out, and the transmission changes gears by itself, it sounds like it could only happen if you have a ghost in your car, or so we thought until about eight months ago when two hackers took over a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The police could be controlling your self-driving car

One of the biggest issues will be the rules under which public infrastructures and public safety officers may be empowered to override how autonomous vehicles are controlled. It is not hard to imagine why they might want such override power. One is for traffic control. As AVs proliferate there are many advantages to having them talk with intelligent roadways, the better to use scarce freeway space. Controls may also be imposed to leave lanes clear for emergency vehicles or crowded busses. Road conditions that are hard to detect by AV sensors, like weather-related lane closures, may also be more efficiently and fairly handled by having roadways or emergency crews redirect AVs away from problematic lanes, as well as around police, fire, and EMS activity. Overrides could be used to restrict certain vehicles from sensitive locations, like military sites.

Are Vaccines Such “Holy Cows” That They Can’t Be Condemned?

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Vaccines cause the very diseases they are supposed to ‘immunize’ against. How’s that efficacious? It certainly is efficacious for vaccine makers’ financial interests, but certainly not for those who contract vaccine-induced polio or experience the adverse events associated with many vaccines, particularly the HPV ‘anti-cervical cancer’ vaccines, which are now given to young boys, who don’t have cervixes.

Before you cry “foul ball,” I know why they’re mandated for young boys. Tsk! Tsk! Tsk!

Johnson & Johnson Has a Baby Powder Problem

A week later, Fox was diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer. She had chemotherapy to shrink the tumors and surgery to remove her uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and part of her spleen and colon. In December of that year, she saw a commercial from an Alabama law firm, Beasley Allen, suggesting a connection between long-term use of Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder and ovarian cancer. Fox had been sprinkling Baby Powder made from talc on her underwear every day since she was a teen. “I was raised up on it,” she later said in a deposition. “They was to help you stay fresh and clean.?…?We ladies have to take care of ourselves.” It was as normal as using toothpaste or deodorant. “We both were a bit skeptical at first,” says her son, Marvin Salter, a mortgage banker in Jacksonville, Fla. “It has to be safe. It’s put on babies. It’s been around forever. Why haven’t we heard about any ill effects?”

Johnson & Johnson is the company that covered up the Tylenol poisonings inside their supply chain by claiming the crimes were committed at the store level, per our frequent guest Michelle Rosen, whose mother was one of the victims.

Former science chief: 'MMR fears coming true'

Dr Peter Fletcher, who was Chief Scientific Officer at the Department of Health, said if it is proven that the jab causes autism, "the refusal by governments to evaluate the risks properly will make this one of the greatest scandals in medical history".

He added that after agreeing to be an expert witness on drug-safety trials for parents' lawyers, he had received and studied thousands of documents relating to the case which he believed the public had a right to see.

He said he has seen a "steady accumulation of evidence" from scientists worldwide that the measles, mumps and rubella jab is causing brain damage in certain children.

But he added: "There are very powerful people in positions of great authority in Britain and elsewhere who have staked their reputations and careers on the safety of MMR and they are willing to do almost anything to protect themselves."

Toxic additive BPA found in 2/3 of canned foods

Endocrine-disrupting chemical Bisphenol-A was found in 67 percent of canned food products of top brands – including Campbell's and Del Monte – according to a new report. Some companies have since announced a phasing-out of the toxic chemical.

"Our findings were alarming," wrote the authors of the study, titled Buyer Beware. Of the 192 cans examined, 129 tested positive for BPA-based epoxy, though quantity levels were not included in the analysis. In addition, the study reported that "some retailers and brands have replaced BPA with PVC, made from vinyl chloride, a carcinogen."

HUD Wants to Make Living in a Tiny House or RV Illegal

The tiny house movement has taken America by storm, in part because our economy is in the toilet. People are striving to reduce their expenses by embracing minimalism. They’re breaking free from the corporate grind because, as I’ve always advised, they are learning to live with less and radically reducing their expenses.

But, these days in America, you are sharply admonished when you try to live your life outside of the strictures of the 9-5 world. Is it any surprise that the government is now taking steps to limit our ability to drastically reduce our expenses? They always seem to make illegal anything we try to do to be more independent and moving into a tiny house appears to be the next on their list.

How Today’s Medical Establishment Was Deliberately Bastardized

The attempt to suppress homeopathic medicine was accelerated in 1910 with the Flexner Report, influenced by the funding by John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie. In effect, healthcare in the US was bought out and successful homeopathic physicians disallowed from further practice. This important change led to safe, inexpensive treatments being forced to the fringe of mainstream medicine, a practice which remains in effect today.

Understanding healthcare’s past can assist in better comprehending the obstacles and difficulties faced in today’s very slanted pharmaceutical and vaccine-based model of healthcare.

California to Delay BPA Warnings on Canned Foods Because Regulator Says Label Is Too Scary

By Steven Maxwell

To tell or not to tell. That is the dilemma and heated debate which is occurring in California over Bisphenol A (BPA) in some of the canned food products sold at grocery stores. The regulators are concerned that wording on the label is too scary. They claim to be worried that poor customers won’t buy canned food anymore.

Warnings are supposed to be on food product labels and/or posted on retailers shelves by May of 2016, but California is delaying the labeling law and is making other, less alarming, plans to inform consumers of the presence of BPA...

This is explosive. This is about a film no one can see, because it exposes lunatics and destroyers in the vaccine industry.

“'To our dismay, we learned today about the Tribeca Film Festival’s decision to reverse the official selection of Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe,’ said Andrew Wakefield and Del Bigtree (the director and producer, respectively). Robert De Niro’s original defense of the film happened Friday after a one-hour conversation between De Niro and Bill Posey, the congressman who has interacted directly and at length with the CDC Whistleblower (William Thompson) and whose team has scrutinized the documents that prove fraud at the CDC. …” (emphasis added)

VAXXED film pulled from Robert De Niro's Tribeca Film Festival following totalitarian censorship demands from pharma-linked vaccine pushers and media science trolls

The Tribeca Film Festival was co-founded by Robert De Niro, who has a child with autism and who originally supported the free speech efforts of filmmakers to create "an opportunity for conversation around the issue." But the vaccine totalitarians and media science trolls who demand absolute obedience to the fraudulent narrative that vaccines are "safe and effective" have zero tolerance for any intelligent conversations about vaccines. They demand utter surrender to the official story on vaccines, with no willingness to discuss any of the evidence revealing a known, documented link between vaccines and autism. Even more shockingly, they have now gone to extraordinary lengths to make sure that no one else has the right to see this film, either, because what they learn in this documentary might be wildly dangerous to the vaccine establishment.

Dodgy software will bork America's F-35 fighters until at least 2019

The F-35 multirole fighter won't be close to ready before 2019, the US House Armed Services Committee was told on Wednesday.

The aircraft, which is supposed to reinvigorate the American military's air power, is suffering numerous problems, largely down to flaws in the F-35's operating system. These include straightforward code crashes, having to reboot the radar every four hours, and serious security holes in the code.

Michael Gilmore, the Pentagon's director of operational test and evaluation, reported that the latest F-35 operating system has 931 open, documented deficiencies, 158 of which are Category 1 – classified as those that could cause death, severe injury, or severe illness.

ISRAEL'S CELLEBRITE REVEALED AS COMPANY HELPING FBI HACK IPHONE ENCRYPTION

In the aftermath of the FBI's surprising request on Monday to postpone a hearing in its legal crusade to unlock Apple cellphones, many wondered who it was that had succeeded in penetrating the supposedly unhackable smartphone. Earlier today Reuters provided the answer: the FBI's effort is being assisted by Israel's Cellebrite, a provider of mobile forensic software, which is now helping the Feds in their attempt to unlock an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino, California shooters, the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper reported on Wednesday.

If Cellebrite succeeds, then the FBI will no longer need the help of Apple Inc, the Israeli daily said, citing unnamed industry sources. It will also mean that the entire Apple "stand" for privacy and consumer rights was one big theatrical spectacle as both parties involved clearly were aware the iPhone can be penetrated with the right tools. Aptly enough, said tools have been found in Israel.

From AIPAC to Trump: Michael Glassner’s journey

How does one go from serving as AIPAC’s Southwest Regional Political Director a year ago to running Donald Trump’s national political operation today?
Ever since Trump announced his White House bid last June, Michael Glassner has been serving as his campaign’s national political director. In part, he is credited with landing the coveted Sarah Palin endorsement ahead of the Iowa Caucus last month.

Upon moving to New Jersey in the late nineties, Glassner served as a senior advisor to Lewis Eisenberg, the then-Chairman of the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey and a prominent Republican Jewish leader. He worked out of the Port Authority’s World Trade Center office but left just before 9/11 to join IDT Corp in Newark. Glassner credits his former boss, IDT founder Howard Jonas, whom he referred to as “a strong Zionist and an AIPAC guy,” with encouraging him to become more active in pro-Israel politics.

It’s a project that has been rife with criticism for being grossly over budget and delayed for years, not to mention the fact that the plane is riddled with technical flaws and lacks maneuverability (most recently, it was revealed that the F-35 has a faulty radar that needs to be frequently restarted). And each of these problem prone aircraft cost 3 to 5 times as much to manufacture as older fighter jets, like the F-15 and F-16.

Is the USDA Just a Corporate Lobbyist Group?

In a sense, the fundamental role of science itself has been hijacked for selfish gain. Looking back, you can now see that the preferred business model of an industry was created first, followed by "scientific evidence" that supports the established business model.

When the science doesn't support the company's economic gains, it's swept under the rug, even if people are dying and the planet is becoming irreparably poisoned as a result. Today we live in a world where chemical companies and biotech giants can easily buy and pay for their own research studies, as well as the lobbying to support whatever legislation they need passed in their favor.

Their tentacles also reach deep within federal agencies, so that even the scientists hired to work on the public's behalf are thwarted as soon as their research clashes with the corporate agenda. Conflicts of interest have become the norm within virtually all fields of science, which creates a completely unworkable — and dangerous — situation in the long run.

DOZENS OF CAR MODELS CAN BE UNLOCKED AND STARTED WITH A CHEAP RADIO AMP

A group of German researchers from ADAC have published their work on extending last year's amplification attack that let thieves steal Priuses with a $17 gadget that detected your key's unlock signal and amplified it so it would reach the car. The researchers have shown that at least 24 different car models from 19 manufacturers are vulnerable to this attack, and can be unlocked and driven away with cheap, easy-to-make radio amps.

Can OPEC Balance Supply And Demand In 2016?

Summary

-What are January production freeze levels?

-Has Iran's increase for 2016 already been achieved?

-Could supply and demand balance in second half of 2016 without a cut?

-Or how much would have to be cut for a balance?

As WTI crude futures prices breached $40/b today on talk about an "Extraordinary Meeting" to be held by OPEC in April, it is worth taking a look at what OPEC thinks about the future supply/demand balance, as presented in OPEC's March Oil Market Report. The follow-up question is, can OPEC balance the market in 2016?

General Mills To Label GMOs

General Mills To Label US Products With Genetically Modified Ingredients

American food manufacturer General Mills announced on Friday that it will begin labelling all its products in the United States that has genetically modified organisms as ingredients. The move was prompted by a new state law in Vermont, which requires companies to put such information starting July 1.

However, the company cannot label products for only one state without driving up costs for consumers, said General Mills Vice President Jeff Harmening, so the company's response is to put up labels nationwide.

WHAT IS COLD FUSION?

When hydrogen, the main element of water, is introduced to a small piece of the metal nickel or palladium, a reaction occurs that can create excess heat and transmutation products. Excess heat means more heat comes out of the system than went in to the system. The excess heat can make hot water and useful steam to turn a turbine and produce electricity.

Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. On Earth, hydrogen is found in water. An energy source from hydrogen is clean, with no carbon-dioxide CO2 emissions. In LENR reactions, only tiny amounts of the hydrogen are consumed and the metal is recyclable when spent.

Snyder, EPA administrator testify at Flint congressional hearing

***
Snyder told the panel at a contentious hearing that the state Department of Environmental Quality repeatedly gave him assurances that the water being piped in from the Flint River was safe -- when in fact it had dangerous levels of lead.

But Cummings said the governor should have done more to push back against state experts. He says the committee has documents "showing that people all around the governor were sounding the alarms, but he either ignored them or didn't hear them."

The chairman of the oversight panel, Republican Jason Chaffetz of Utah, says the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency also deserves blame. He told EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy, "You failed."

He also took issue with McCarthy's comment that it was "courageous" for the EPA's Midwest regional chief to resign as the crisis got worse.>>>

WADA still to explain reasons for banning mildronate — producer

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) still has not answered to the Latvian pharmaceutical firm Grindex why the company’s produced mildronate was included in the list of the banned substances, Grindex spokeswoman Laila Klavina told TASS on Thursday. The drug meldonium (mildronate) was included in the list of preparations banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency from January 1, 2016. "It was last summer, when Grindex jointly with the Anti-Doping Department of the Latvian State Center for Athletics Medicine provided WADA with all arguments, proof and reasoning why the drug should not be included in the list of the banned substances," Klavina said in an interview with TASS. "There was still no information from WADA last autumn, when it became obvious that meldonium would be on the list. All we know as of now is that meldonium on the list of the banned substances.

Why Do Americans Consume 80 Percent Of All Prescription Painkillers?

Waking Times

If Americans are so happy, then why do we consume 80 percent of the entire global supply of prescription painkillers? Less than 5 percent of the world’s population lives in this country, and yet we buy four-fifths of these highly addictive drugs. In the United States today, approximately 4.7 million Americans are addicted to prescription pain relievers, and that represents about a 300 percent increase since 1999.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is now granting an “expedited review” to generic drugs producers that would compete with brand-named treatments, currently produced by only one manufacturer.

Senate set to vote on DARK Act TODAY, bill would criminalize any and all claims that say non-GMO food is safer

A piece of legislation that would prohibit states from enacting GMO-labeling laws, as well as make it difficult for companies wishing to voluntarily label GMOs, is expected to hit the Senate floor for a vote today. The Senate vote has been dreaded by the Right to Know movement ever since it passed the House of Representatives 275–150 in mid-July.

Authored by Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS), the bill has been labeled the "Deny Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act" by healthy food advocates because it eliminates a person's right to know exactly what is in their food.

Webmaster's Commentary: 




What is going on here is very simple. The rest of the world will not buy and eat the GMO food, so Monsanto will sell it to you and the government will make it a crime for you to know what you are eating or to even ask if it is safe!

The robot car revolution hit a speed bump on Tuesday as senators and tech experts sounded stern warnings about the potentially fatal risks of self-driving cars.“There is no question that someone is going to die in this technology,” said Duke University roboticist Missy Cummings in testimony before the US Senate committee on commerce, science and transportation. “The question is when and what can we do to minimize that.”

Will it soon be illegal to discuss natural medicine on the internet? Natural cures now threaten the medical monopolies of the pharmaceutical cartels...

With the FDA ramping up attacks on natural medicine companies, and social media giants like FB and Twitter increasingly censoring discussions about natural immunity and alternative medicine treatments, it seems to be only a matter of time before the totalitarian medical regime outlaws free speech about natural medicine.

That's the direction it's all heading, sadly. And there have already been efforts to criminalize online discussions of nutrition. For example, in North Carolina, this blogger was threatened with arrest and imprisonment for advocating the Paleo Diet in text he posted online.

Blue Cross Parent Loses $1.5 Billion

Blue Cross parent lost $1.5 billion on individual health plans last year

Year 2 of the Affordable Care Act was another financial flop for the Chicago-based parent of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois but hints of a turnaround are emerging.

Health Care Service Corp.'s financial losses in its individual business, which includes ACA plans, worsened in 2015. The company, which owns Blue Cross affiliates in Illinois and four other states, said it lost $1.5 billion in its individual business, up from $767 million in 2014, the first year of the health law's state exchanges for buying coverage.

In anticipation of ACA-related losses in 2015, HCSC set aside nearly $400 million in 2014 to boost reserves to $680.9 million. The company spent $657.3 million of those reserves to cover the medical expenses associated with ACA plans in 2015.

Jessica Alba's 'Honest Company' found to be peddling the same toxic laundry detergent chemical used in TIDE... turns out they failed to test their own products!

As a food research scientist and author of an upcoming book called Food Forensics, I'm totally floored to discover that Jessica Alba's "Honest Company" failed to conduct scientific testing of the composition of their own manufacturing ingredients.

Just WOW.

Alba sits atop a corporation valued at $1.7 billion based mostly on her good looks, easy public relations victories with the mainstream media and the (empty) promise that her products completely avoided using toxic chemicals like SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate), a chemical frequently found in conventional detergents. But according to an expose published by the Wall Street Journal, Alba's own products were loaded with SLS.

But what Alba herself will have a very difficult time explaining is why, just like in the case of Theranos, her company it not only grossly misnamed, but may also be another fraud, because according to a just released WSJ expose, "one of the primary ingredients Honest tells consumers to avoid is a cleaning agent called sodium lauryl sulfate, or SLS, which can be found in everyday household items from Colgate toothpaste to Tide detergent and Honest says can irritate skin. The company lists SLS first in the “Honestly free of” label of verboten ingredients it puts on bottles of its laundry detergent, one of Honest’s first and most popular products. But two independent lab tests commissioned by The Wall Street Journal determined Honest’s liquid laundry detergent contains SLS."
