FarmAID.com — Just weeks into the new year, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack announced the full deregulation of Monsanto’s Roundup Ready alfalfa—a genetically engineered crop variety designed to withstand Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide.

Part I: OBAMA ADMIN’S new mission to squash “burdensome” regulation & play nice with BIG Farm businesses CREATES frenzy green-lighting genetically engineered crops
One by one, the establishment is picking off the favorite foods and supplements that millions of Americans rely upon to keep us healthy and out of the clutches of the drug and medical industries. Two weeks ago it was eggs. We showed that it was another research group that was heavily influenced by it’s funders that skewed their own research data.
Families in Wyoming and this region are still hurting economically so we decided to see if we could help in some typical areas where expenses run high but are consumer items that are important to our quality of life: Food, health (we’ll be looking at preventive and dental solutions separately), cellphones and, of course, TV programming. We think the Mini Solution can save the average family about $5000 cash a year – that’s $5000 more clams in YOUR POCKET each and every year from making these simple (but not always easy changes)!
Why do researchers and nutritionists keep beating up on eggs? Isn’t it the perfect food? This off-on relationship has been going on for decades, but this newest attack takes the egg ! Canadian researchers at the University of Western Ontario now claim that eating three or more egg yolks per week is as bad for your arteries as smoking. Really? Are you kidding? Seriously? Come on! Give me a break!
LIKE IT OR NOT, MONSANTO GENETICALLY MODIFIED SWEET CORN IS ABOUT TO HIT WALMART PRODUCE SECTION – AND YOU WON’T EVEN KNOW IT’S GE CORN
“The GE sweet corn is the first consumer product developed by Monsanto that will go straight from the farm to the consumer’s plate, rather than first being processed into animal feed, sugars, oils, fibers and other ingredients found in a wide variety of conventional food.” Like it or not, Monsanto’s genetically modified sweet corn will soon be arriving on grocery store shelves of the world’s largest retailer, WalMart Stores, Inc., and will not be labeled as such. Despite an onslaught of consumer pressure, WalMart confirmed late last week with the Chicago Tribune that it has no objection to selling the new crop of Monsanto’s genetically modified (GE) sweet corn. Other retailers, including the national grocery chains Safeway and Kroger, have not responded on the issue, however Whole Foods, Trader Joes and General Mills have all vowed not to carry or use the GE sweet corn.
