(Infowars) – Last Friday a federal judge imposed a nationwide ban on GMO sugar beets and it was overturned the next business day.  Sugar beets comprise 50% of the sugar used in US food, and 95% of the sugar beets grown in the US are GMO.  It is the jurisdiction of the US Department of Agriculture to determine whether plants are environmentally safe; this case is about whether the plants can cross pollinate (by wind, insects, etc) and contaminate other plants.  This could have cost Monsanto billions of dollars.

Meat claimed as invention by multinational company of Monsanto

(GMWatch) – Multinational seed corporations are following a consequent strategy to gain control over basic resources for food production.

Further on the multinationals expand their claims over the whole chain of food production from feed to animals and food products such as meat. Continue reading

Coca-Cola’s murderous record of anti-union activity in Colombia exposed

(NaturalNews) – Coca-Cola: to many, it is simply the all-American cola that everyone grew up drinking. Originally created in the late 1800s as a medicine, Coca-Cola eventually evolved into one of the world’s most popular soft drinks. Besides being a very unhealthy beverage, Coca-Cola has another dirty secret for which few people are aware; the Coca-Cola Company has been involved in a series of kidnappings involving union leaders and organizers at its Colombia bottling facilities. Many of those kidnapped have been severely tortured and even murdered by company thugs.

As shocking and unbelievable as all of this sounds, there is a trail of documented evidence against Coca-Cola for its crimes against union officials. In fact, back in 2001, the United Steelworkers of America and the International Labor Rights Fund, filed a joint lawsuit on behalf of SINALTRAINAL to address the problems in Colombia.

(MailOnline) – NHS spending on ‘chemical cosh’ child-calming drugs soars by 60% to £31m

NHS spending on ‘chemical cosh’ drugs to treat hyperactivity has soared by two-thirds to £31million in just four years, new figures revealed yesterday.
Nearly 750,000 prescriptions are now being doled out every year for Ritalin and similar drugs – most of them to children.
The surge triggered concerns that children are being unnecessarily drugged as poor discipline is increasingly seen as a medical issue.
Teachers warned today that prescribing calming drugs was often cheaper and easier than ‘talking cures’ and parenting support. Read More Here

(NaturalNews) – Terminal cancer patients spend final days suffering from radiation therapy that does nothing

A new analysis just published in the journal Cancer concludes that a significant proportion of terminally ill cancer patients spend most of their final days and weeks subjected to grueling radiation therapy (radiotherapy). What makes this extra heartbreaking and downright outrageous is that irradiating dying cancer patients does absolutely nothing for the vast majority — except to cause more end-of-life suffering and to keep countless people in the hospital, instead of allowing them to die at home.

The multiple ways Monsanto is putting normal seeds out of reach

(OpEdNews) – People say if farmers don’t want problems from Monsanto, just don’t buy their GMO seeds.

Not so simple. Where are farmers supposed to get normal seed these days? How are they supposed to avoid contamination of their fields from GM-crops? How are they supposed to stop Monsanto detectives from trespassing or Monsanto from using helicopters to fly over spying on them?

Monsanto contaminates the fields, trespasses onto the land taking samples and if they find any GMO plants growing there (or say they have), they then sue, saying they own the crop. It’s a way to make money since farmers can’t fight back and court and they settle because they have no choice. Read More Here
