And don't forget that Smithfield Farms, the largest pork producing farm in the USA was sold in September to China with the unanimous support of its stockholders!! The hogs will still be raised here, but slaughtered and packaged for sale there before being sent back here. This includes labels:
of Morrell, Eckrich, Krakus, Cudahy,

Premium Hams, Cook's, Gwaltney. The same with many chickens. They can now be shipped there, but when they come back all that needs to be labeled is that they… WERE RAISED IN THE USA. Not that they were processed in China!!!
Our great FDA at work again. The chickens will be all processed and most sold to fast food restaurants for sandwiches, along with schools and supermarkets. The China slaughter and processing are not nearly equal - and, by far - to the requirements here.



Buy USA or Canada only.



We recently learned that Star-Kist Tuna is now owned by Korea, and is in big conflict with the U. S. concerning quality, safety, and records, which Korea refuses to produce.


Read several articles on Google about this, and even one that was defending the eating of tilapia said to avoid the fish that came from China? Also, I had just returned home from buying Albertson's 4-day special of 4 bags of frozen tilapia for the price of one? Sure enough, on the top of the bags, it read "farm raised", and on the bottom in small print it said:" China "… read all the way down...


Recently a Food inspector on TV... said he had lived overseas and he had seen the filthy conditions their foods are raised and processed in. It is enough to make you throw-up. Some foreign workers have to wear masks as they work in these places, because the food is so rotten and filthy, it makes them want to throw up. Many of their fish on Fish Farms are fed raw sewage daily. He said he has seen so much filth throughout their food growing and processing that he would "never" eat any of it. They raise this filth, put some food coloring and some flavorings on it, then they ship it to the USA & Canada for YOU to consume and feed to YOUR families. They have no Food & Safety Inspectors. They ship it to you to buy and poison your families and friends.


Imported food we eat and the junk we buy:


Green Giant frozen vegetables are from China, and so are most of Europe's Best. Arctic Gardens are Okay. So is Birdseye.


Never buy the grocery store garlic unless it is clearly marked from USA or
Canada, the other stuff is grown in people's… dung (even worse than chicken
poop). China is the largest producer of garlic in the world; U. S. is next.


Buy only local honey, much honey is shipped in huge containers from China
and re-packed here.


Cold-FX is grown and packed in China and is full of fecal bacteria. Doesn't
work anyway, big scam.


If the country of origin is not clearly marked "beware." If produce, ask an
employee.

Watch out for packages which state "prepared for," "packed by" or "imported
by." We don't understand the lack of mandatory labeling, especially the
produce.

The country of origin should be clearly shown on the item in the store.

Go to the local farmers' markets in season and keep a wary eye open the rest
of the year.

Please read this very carefully, and read to the very bottom. It's important
for all of us.

How is it possible to ship food from China cheaper than having it produced
in the U. S. or Canada?

FOR EXAMPLE THE "OUR FAMILY" BRAND OF MANDARIN ORANGES SAYS RIGHT ON THE CAN
'FROM CHINA'. SO, FOR A FEW MORE CENTS, BUY THE LIBERTY BRAND. GOLD BRAND OR
DOLE ARE FROM CALIFORNIA.


Beware, Costco sells canned peaches and pears in a plastic jar that come
from China.

ALL "HIGH LINER" AND MOST OTHER FROZEN FISH PRODUCTS COME FROM CHINA OR
INDONESIA. THE PACKAGE MAY SAY "PACIFIC SALMON" ON THE FRONT, BUT LOOK FOR
THE SMALL PRINT. MOST OF THESE PRODUCTS COME FROM FISH FARMS IN THE ORIENT
WHERE THERE ARE NO REGULATIONS ON WHAT IS FED TO THESE FISH.


Recently The Montreal Gazette had an article by the Canadian Government on
how Chinese feed the fish: They suspend chicken wire crates over the fish
ponds, and the fish feed on chicken dung.

If you search the Internet about what the Chinese feed their fish, you'll be
alarmed; e. g, growth hormones, expired anti-biotic from humans? Never buy
any type of fish or shellfish that comes from these countries: Vietnam,
China, Philippines.

Check this out personally. Steinfeld's Pickles are made in India - just as
bad!

Another example is in canned mushrooms. No-Name brand came from Indonesia…

Also check those little fruit cups. They used to be made in Canada, in the
Niagara region, until about 2 years ago. They are now packaged in China.
Most sold in Aldi stores.


While the Chinese export inferior and even toxic products, dangerous toys,
and goods to be sold in North American markets, the media wrings its hands!
Yet, 70% of North Americans believe that the trading privileges afforded to
the Chinese should be suspended.

Well, duh! Why do you need the government to suspend trading privileges?

SIMPLY DO IT YOURSELF, CANADA AND THE U. S.


Simply look on the bottom of every product you buy, and if it says 'Made in
China' or 'PRC' (and that now includes Hong Kong), simply choose another
product, or none at all. You will be amazed at how dependent you are on
Chinese products, and you will be equally amazed at what you can do without.

THINK ABOUT THIS:

If 200 million North Americans refuse to buy just $20 each of Chinese goods,
that's a billion dollar trade imbalance resolved in our favor... fast! The
downside? Some Canadian/American businesses will feel a temporary pinch from
having foreign stockpiles of inventory.

Just one month of trading losses will hit the Chinese for 8% of their North
American exports. Then they will at least have to ask themselves if the
benefits of their arrogance and lawlessness are worth it.

Only buy non gmo products and you won't have to worry about food from China. BTW, China has banned gmo.

You should do research before posting crap.

Green Giant are not all made in China. http://www.greengiantfreshblog.com/2011/10/13/getting-the-nitty-gritty-on-the-produce-you-purchase/

It is never right to fear-monger

The research has been done for me, by honest people, scientists, researchers, doctors, parents speaking out.

Corporations have so much money they can buy any science they want. Mainstream media is a joke.

I can't get over how many stupid "smart" people are out there. If I can understand it, why can't you?

This documentary is by the Institute for Responsible Technology. They are non profit. They are not in this to get rich.

I'm not going to play search engine wars with you. Corporations pay to have their studies, their products placed in the forefront of searches. Corporations fund their own studies and they publish whatever they want; they can buy any science they want. They even employ mom bloggers to try to convince moms that gmo's are safe.

Watch out when you piss off a mom, especially if you have harmed our children.

Mom testimonials from Mom's Across America:


"When my son was born he fussed a lot, the whole day, wouldn't nap. I breast fed until he was three months old. And because his gut was not right, he fussed and I could never console him. I tried all the gassy meds, not sure they are considered meds. Once on formula the fussy continued, we switched to different formulas, but not until we switched to organic, his fussy stopped, he began taking naps. As a toddler, I fed him cheerios, a main staple in our house. The tantrums began; two hours at a time couple times a day. This is with head banging or slamming his head into the wall repeatedly. He wouldn't let me hold him, not even touch him. Can you imagine not cuddling your baby? I cried everyday. I had watched the movie Food Inc. It touched on a subject I wasn't familiar with. After watching Genetic Roulette, I cleaned out the cupboards. After doing this, within two weeks my sons tantrums stopped completely, he started smiling, crawling into my lap for cuddles. I had no idea that was the issue. Even now when he gets something conventionally/ GMO poison, he'll have another tantrum like his past. So if there's a question as to where it's from-what kind of seed, I don't take it. So for me and my family, we bow out from being a guinea pig."- Stephanie Vanderyacht

"My husband was in the hospital 5 times last year. Doctors wanted to remove part of his intestine because it was so infected instead doctors pumped him full of antibotics for a week when he got out of hospital I changed his diet and all our family food choices to NON- GMO foods WOW what a diffrence he’s doing great and food never tasted so good! I will march sign petitions anything to reclaim our healthy labeled food choices. God Speed JUST SAY NO TO GMO’S ….MAAM! " Rhonda Bryne, MAA

Kristie: "Stopped in at our doctor's office this afternoon to get Caroline's nut allergy info signed for school. They weren't able to complete the paperwork (or refill her epi-pen) because she hadn't been in for a visit in 20 months. My first reaction was to get angry and then I took a minute to let that sink in... 20 MONTHS. My girl with asthma, eczema, chronic pneumonia, food allergies and hip dysplasia hasn't been to the doctor in almost two years! Coincidence that we changed how we eat ( Non GMO and organic) almost 2 years ago? I think not! She is living proof that the foods we eat and the products we put on our bodies matter!"

"My son had a rash around his mouth now and then but since getting off GMOs he doesn’t have that problem any more. My daughters tummy used to puff out after meals and she’d get a belly ache. She doesn’t get those after meals since we went off GMOs. I used to feel like my skin was crawling but I don’t get that anymore since being off GMOs." - Larie Olson, WA. , MAA

"My son has had severe autism. As a single Mom who makes about 40 K, it's tough but we only eat organic because I found out about GMOs about 2 years ago. When we went organic, after about 2 weeks, my father thought I was giving my son a new drug, because he saw such improvements, but I said "Nope, just went organic." This year he entered high school and not one of his teachers could tell he used to have severe autism symptoms. He is with the regular classs and he is doing well." - Cindy, MAA

Jennifer Duffy Fehnel- "At 14 months my oldest son was diagnosed with renal tubular acidosis. It's a kidney condition in which your kidney does not properly dispose of the acid in your blood. This stunts growth and in turn, he is pretty small. In 2008 I asked his nephrologist if diet mattered, and she simply said no. Luckily my gut was screaming something else. After having 3 more kids and loosing my Dad to cancer, once the fog lifted I realized we needed to make a change. All that time my son wasn't really growing- he was hugging the bottom of the growth chart. Last year I switched my entire house to an organic (and when not available at least a NON-GMO) diet, and guess who is growing!!! He is being weaned off of his Meds as we speak! So I don't need Monsanto to try to convince me their "food" is safe. We have our own little experiment here that tells me otherwise! Actually, ALL of my kids ( including one who was asthmatic) thrive on an organic diet!"

"I went GMO free and after about a month, my Fibromyaglia symptoms went away." - Belinda

Martina Collom: "I have/had Crohn's and it is terrible. I got it in 1999 at age 18 and went on numerous medications. I ate GMOs back then and I am certain that is why I got it. At one point I just wanted to die, the pain was so great. I understand this misery. I now eat only organic and I am not on any medications been about 7 years since my last med."

"I had an auto immune diseases for 8 years. I was on different medications for it and actually had surgery for it. It was a living nightmare. I took GMOs almost completely out of my diet 8 months ago and the symptoms are gone! Some of my family think I'm crazy for posting so many food posts about GMOs but I know first hand how devastating the effects are. Doctors said there is no cure for my disease. I found the cure...stop eating GMOs!!!!"- Morgan M.

Let me make one thing perfectly clear... my only concern in addressing your statements, is that of ensuring scientific accuracy. Nothing more.

I applaud your efforts to promote healthy conditions for people and I fully understand and acknowledge the deceptive practices of corporations (among others). But your arguments are replete with logical fallacies, pseudoscientific claims, gross assumptions and a thoroughly lacking understanding of the criteria that science demands. Unless you can produce peer-reviewed studies that meet a scientific consensus, then none of the claims that you throw around, have any legitimacy. Instead, they are mere opinion, rumor, anecdotes, and the like. They most certainly are NOT research or science. I'm not saying that they are not caused by that which you suspect, but, without scientific controls put in place, it's impossible to determine the causes. Sorry, that's just the facts.

The primary consideration of all scientific discovery: Correlation does NOT imply causation.

Please take these comments in the spirit that they are intended, but remember that by playing fast and loose with words that have very specific meanings, you only serve to delegitimize your nobel efforts, by revealing your obvious lack of understanding of the sciences.

Keep up your efforts of fighting the good fight, by keeping it honest.
