According to one study, the obesity epidemic in the United States began in 1996, the same year GMOs entered the US food chain and in a big way. Pop companies such as Coke and Pepsi were among the first at putting the GMO poison in their products in the form of corn fructose sugar. Most corn grown in the USA are GMOs. Coincidence? Not likely.

My girlfriend and I went on a diet of organic food and quickly discovered that we eat less than when we eat GMO tainted foods. I quickly lost twenty pounds despite eating hefty amounts of organic chocolate bars and other organic foods. My skinny girlfriend also lost weight.

My girlfriend and I noticed that friends are hungry after eating GMO tainted foods, often within minutes, but when they come to eat organic foods at our home, they eat little food and are stuffed for hours.

I also lost my allergies to a cat named Sabina, carpet dust, and housework.

We had video games in the eighties and nineties, and lots of things where we sat and did nothing, like play board games, so that’s not why people are obese today. I drank Coke and Pepsi in fairly hefty amounts when I was younger, and I never gained weight. Neither did any of my friends.

But now, Coke and Pepsi products are considered major culprits in the obesity epidemic, even though those companies have been producing their products for well over a hundred years, and the epidemic has only existed for less than twenty years. Of course, corn fructose sugar could be the culprit because most (if not all) of that’s made from GMO corn.

GM foods were first put on the market in the early 1990s. Typically, genetically modified foods are transgenic plant products: soybean, corn, canola, and cotton seed oil. These are items that are used in numerous kinds of processed foods, from ketchup and mustard to tortilla chips and TV dinners.

“If GM foods are contributing to the rise of autism, obesity, diabetes, asthma, cancer, heart disease, allergies, reproductive problems, or any other common health problem now plaguing Americans (and there are plenty of independent peer reviewed studies showing this), we may never know. In fact, since animals fed GMOs had such a wide variety of problems, susceptible people may react to GM food with multiple symptoms. It is therefore telling that in the first nine years after the large scale introduction of GM crops in 1996, the incidence of people with three or more chronic diseases nearly doubled, from 7% to 13%. -Food Matters 2009”

If genetically modified organisms are so healthy, why don’t the corporations that manufacture them (Such as Monsanto), and use them in the food they sell us (such as General Mills, Coca-Cola, and Pepsi), why don’t they want us to know they’re in our food?

Answer: In independent test after test and for over two decades, studies show GMOs cause tumors, severe liver problems, and other health issues in rats, sterility in hamsters, and they have killed cattle within two days of them consuming GMOs, among other things. And there are lots of other things! In other words, companies like General Mills, Coca-cola, and Pepsi are putting Monsanto’s rat poison in the food they sell us, and they don’t want us to know.

By the way, many politicians support the GMO industry. A short list include president’s Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Wall Street’s Goon, Senator Ron Wyden. The US government is a cesspool of corruption.

The biotech and junk food lobbies know that public concern and anger are likely to increase in 2014 over the health hazards posed by genetically modified organisms (GMOs) permitted in the US food chain. So the industries are pushing for “a new generation of evermore hazardous and outrageous Frankenfoods and crops, including GE salmon, apples and Agent Orange (2,4 D or dicamba-resistant) corn.” Yes, these are about to be approved by the Obama regime in his war against the middle class. Ultimately, the benefits of slowly killing people and destroying their health go to Wall Street and publicly traded corporations.

Now the Junk Food and biotech Industry President Barack Obama is considering a federal law that will prohibit states from labeling foods with GMOs in them. The junk food and biotech industries defeated labeling requirement measures in Washington early in November, and in California last summer. They spent $70 million to defeat two laws that only required letting people know exactly what they are eating. These campaigns alerted people to the hazards of GMOs, but they’re expensive for the industry. Notice that neither ballot measure intended to ban GMOs, but only to label food with GMO ingredients. What does the industry fear?

In the Washington anti-labeling campaign, industry heavyweights such as Pepsi, Coke, Nestlé, General Mills and Kellogg’s spent millions of dollars to defeat the labeling of GMO foods. Virtually everything sold by these companies are poisonous. Their products have ingredients in them that independent studies show cause tumors in rats, shrunken sexual organs, allergies, infertility, and a lot more. However, GMOs are cheaper to use than natural foods. So when companies switch the ingredients of their products from non-GMO to GMO ingredients, they’re cheapening their products, but increasing their profit margins.

The companies listed above are all publicly traded limited liability corporations. They’re so large and inefficient, especially compared to government agencies such as the Social Security Administration (with its 1 percent overhead expenses), that no CEO knows what’s going on in them. They’re clueless buffoons trying to pretend to know what’s happening in their companies. So CEO’s have to resort to dubious methods to jack-up profits. One way is to cut wages and benefits. Another is to cheapen their products by putting poisonous GMOs in them.

Because CEO’s haven’t a clue what’s going on in their companies, which is also true of any board of directors, there’s only one yard stick to determine whether a CEO is effective or not. When stock prices get higher quarter after quarter, more or less, then the CEO is considered effective. If the reverse happens, the CEO is ineffective, and that guy or gal have got to go. Rising profits and surging dividends (quarter after quarter) are what pushes stock prices higher.

However, if something were to occur that might push profits downward, like people knowing there are poisons in their foods so they don’t buy them anymore, CEO’s would be canned. And so the companies above push back against any GMO labeling effort. Not only that, they want to keep using the same poisons because GMO’s push their profit margins higher, elevating their stock price higher than they would otherwise be the case.

The 1 percent are the primary shareholders of large corporations. The 99 percent are the primary consumers of the poisons. So when a corporation uses GMOs, the health of the 99 percent is being redistributed to the 1 percent in the form of profits. That’s what the Obama regime supports in its war against the middle class.

A series of lawsuits have been, and are being, brought, against companies labeling their foods “natural,” or all-natural, when they are in fact loaded with GMO ingredients, according to Conan Milner, reporting in the latest issue of Epoch Times.

In July, Naked Juice Co. agreed to pay $9 million to settle a class action lawsuit brought against it for using the “all-natural” on its labels. The products of this company are loaded with Genetically Modified Ingredients. Naked Juice is owned by Pepisco, whose products, such as Pepsi Cola, are loaded with GMO ingredients.

100 percent of studies that are not funded by the producers of GMO products show these things are harmful to human health. As early as 1995, USDA scientists concluded this, as well as concluding GMO will cause allergies.

There’s nothing natural about GMOs. According to Mark Kastel, director of Cereal Crimes, “‘GMOs by definition are not natural, because they’re talking about genetically manipulating a plant, or conceivably an animal, that becomes an organism that’s never existed on this planet before. That doesn’t seem very natural to me.'”

There’s nothing natural about taking a salmon gene and inserting it into a seed that grows into a plant that produces fruit or vegetables. There’s nothing natural about taking a man made toxin, such as Monsanto‘s Bt and Ht toxins, inserting it into seeds plants, and remain in the plant’s fruit when you eat them. What’s natural about that?

One other point needs to be made. Food and dink companies use GMOs because it’s cheaper and more profitable to use these harmful ingredients rather than natural ingredients. Food prices are going up, not down. And yet, the use of GMOs ensures the cost to produce the food is going down. That means profit margins are widening. GMOs are one of the reasons companies like McDonalds are having record profits. In other words, using GMOs is another way for the parasite 1 percent to redistribute income from the 99 percent by simply poisoning us and taking our money in the process.

A new study published in the Journal of Economic Perspectives, a journal of the American Economic Association, shows what everybody already knows; CEO’s are massively overpaid. CEO pay has grown for many reasons. Among them are shipping jobs overseas, buying derivatives, cheating investors, securing government contracts, buying politicians, going to war, and many more reasons. Food and drink companies are replacing safe, natural ingredients in their products with cheaper GMO ingredients, such as McDonalds, KFC, Whole Foods, Coca-Cola and Pepsi.

Essentially, most CEO’s don’t know a whole lot about what their corporations do, and so they have their companies do things like, cheapen the quality of products, push down wage rates, and things like this. In other words, CEO’s are one of the back bones of the 1 percent in their war against he middle class.

Check out the link below for the study.

PepsiCo, the world’s second largest beverage company, ended its sponsorship of ALEC, the controversial right-wing group of the one percent that lobbies for voter suppression efforts. Their goal is to limit the ability of the 99 percent to vote, at least as much as possible. Pepsi’s move may also have had a role in compelling Coca-Cola to drop its support for ALEC.
