Hitler had a terrifying agenda, Rumsfeld is just an ex-corporate CEO with a huge ego, in over his head who doesn't understand the damage he is causing. If he did, he would be taking excitotoxins out of the rations the troops are eating. Hitler was truly evil - Rumsfeld is just the wrong guy for the job.

As to Donald Rumsfeld being the reincarnation of Hitler, there are others much more closely associated.

In the 1920's many people liked the early Hitler because they saw he was able to turn around a dying economy in post war Germany. At that time there was no evidence yet of his demonic nature. Many bankers got involved in what they thought was promising future for Germany.

If the Bush family was unaware of Hitler's intentions in the 1920's, they must have known by the 1930's and 1940's.

This article would have us believe that the Bush family knowingly supported Hitler's plans for world dominance and the extermination of Jews from day one and that somehow, all the Bushes up to our president are tainted by the folly of an ancestor. I'm not a Republican, but let's be fair. I hate the arrogance and ignorance of people in power like Rumfield and the people behind Monsanto and Searl Nutrasweet and MSG. I also get very ticked with people I try to talk to who think I'm crazy when I tell them about MSG. It's people's prejudice, ambition, greed, laziness, and stupidity that are the enemies here.

A. T.,

I agree it would be unfair to blame subsequent generations for the misdeeds of their forebears, who at the very least held their nose and looked the other way rather than sacrifice profits. Still, I would hope that subsequent generations would learn from the past and help those in need, not those with greed.

On this link,

you can find this:

[BEGIN QUOTE]
In case you were in doubt about Monsanto's
motives for producing GE crops:
A Monsanto official told the New York Times, October 25, 1998, that the corporation should not have to take responsibility for the safety of its food products. "Monsanto should not have to vouchsafe the safety of biotech food," said Phil Angell, Monsanto's director of corporate communications. "Our interest is in selling as much of it as possible. Assuring its safety is the FDA's job."
[END QUOTE]

Hmmm. Let's think about that a bit. They don't want responsibility for the consequences of their biotech food. No conscience. Don't give a rat's a.. about your health. All they are interested in is making money. Not in improving the world. Not in creating a product that they can be proud of. Just money. Safety?? That's FDA's job.

But wait a minute! Monsanto is one of several companies controlling FDA. FDA doesn't give a rat's a.. about your health either. The -real- function of FDA is to approve Monsanto's products.

cyanocobalamin:
Avoid this. In the worst case scenario, it acts as an anti-vitamin and can cause a deficiancy of B12. In the best case scenario, it is not used very well and is of little or no therapeutic value.

Better is methylcobalamin. Recommended by Blaylock in "Health and Nutrition Secrets".

Jerry,
Thank you for that link. This story is unbelivable, yet of course, we know it to be true.
This just happened, some success in banning milk labeled as organic:
OCA ALERT UPDATE: SUCCESS!
FACTORY FARM DAIRY SUPPLYING HORIZON LOSES ORGANIC CERTIFICATION
After more than a year of efforts to raise public awareness, the OCA and the Cornucopia Institute celebrated a major victory last week when, for the first time, a massive 10,000 head intensive confinement California feedlot dairy had its organic certification suspended. Prior to OCA's boycott, this factory farm supplied Horizon Organic. "This is a big victory for the farm families around the country who work so hard to create milk and dairy products that meet a high ethical standard," said Mark Kastel, Cornucopia's senior farm policy analyst. The Cornucopia Institute says that the good news about organic dairy products is that the vast majority are produced with high integrity and meet the spirit and letter of the organic law.
Learn more: http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/article_5565.cfm
PRODUCT PLUNDER OF THE WEEK:
HORIZON ANNOUNCES FURTHER LOSSES AS OCA BOYCOTT CONTINUES
This week, Horizon, the largest organic dairy company in the U.S., announced, for the second time this year that its profits are decreasing. Horizon dairy is one of several brands being boycotted by the OCA and thousands of organic consumers due to the company's practice of sourcing milk from giant dairy feedlots where the animals have little or no access to pasture. Gregg Engles, the CEO of Dean Foods (Horizon's parent company) blamed recent profit losses on "considerable disruption" in the organic dairy marketplace. When OCA launched its boycott in 2006, Engles claimed factory farmed organics were necessary in order to produce enough organic milk to meet growing consumer demands. Ironically, this week Engles said part of the blame for the company's profit losses is due to an oversupply of organic dairy in the marketplace.

TARGETS OF OCA'S ONGOING "ORGANIC" FACTORY FARM DAIRY BOYCOTT
Horizon, Costco's "Kirkland Signature," Safeway's "O" organics brand, Publix's "High Meadows, "Giant's "Natures Promise," "Woodstock Farms" and Wild Oats' organic milk.

Think I will begin to make my own almond milk again...got away from it for awhile. It's so easy the way I make it. I put 1 cup of slivered almonds in the blender with 4 cups of water and blend 4 minutes. You can strain it through a cloth or fine mesh strainer if you prefer. It's great real cold and can be used just like milk in cooking or baking. I add a pinch of sugar sometimes.

Animals refuse to eat GM foods. When they are forced to eat it, bad things happen to them.

Monsanto doesn't give a rat's xxx posterior about your health or feeding the world or anything good. I think maybe Monsanto is in on the plan to reduce the planet's population to 500 million.

Jerry, I agree with you. Since my corn and soy allergy I have learned a lot about the horrors of GMOs and how prevalent they are in our society. I know people think I am a conspiracy theorist, but I truly believe that Monsanto is in the process of "owning" the world's food supply. I think that takes the word monopoly to a whole new level. What scares me is that the truth sounds so over-the-top that people don't believe it. I hear pompous asses spouting that "feed the world" propaganda all the time and they truly believe the PR crap that Monsanto is talking. They think it makes them an intellectual and they try to make people like me sound irrational and extremist. There is just no way a rational and logical person would not be scared of GMOs once they find out all the facts. Thanks for posting the link.

aargh. yes. i am right there with both of you - even tho it does sound so extreme & conspiricist nevertheless i still believe its true. its just sooooo hard getting anyone else to listen, if they have not allready been doing some research of their own.
monsanto has a lot of dirty dirty secrets and a great deal of power, and they are very strategically rising to prominence in a very quiet way. by the time most of the world is aware of what is going on, it will be too late (personally, i fear it allready is). the truth is that no one has any idea of what impact GMOs will have on all earthbound life. there are signs allready tho... ugly ones. for anyone who is looking...
ive been worrying about all this since i first heard about monsanto and their starlink corn, about 10 years ago... back when my older son was first starting to manifest so many issues. honestly, those guys scare me to death. all those big chem companies do... but something about monsanto... i dont know...
anyway, i noticed they are on the Forbes list of Global High Performers this year (Forbes 2010 Special Issue, on newstands thru July 26). they may not be in The Forbes Top 100 yet... but it definitely shows that chemically-sensitive people like ourselves are not the only ones who are believing monsanto should be closely watched.

Most people believe that it isn't an issue that effects them so they're not interested. I wish it was just a matter of choice. If I could just choose to avoid them and let everyone else eat them up, I would never mention it. But, the more they are planted, the more it effects the foods that are available to me and the biodiversity of food crops. I wish everyone would just wake up and see that there will soon be no corn that isn't GMO. That is huge! We have systematically wiped out an incredible amount of varieties of a major food crop in less than a generation and replaced it with something humans can't eat. They want to do it with alfalfa (control of the grassfed meat and dairy), wheat, rice and sugar, too. (I don't count soy or cotton because I don't think they should be ingested by humans anyway)

Im right there with you guys on this one. I recently found out that while Ireland has a "sort of" gmo free policy we are in fact the biggest importers of gmo animal feed in Europe...thats scary!!! People look at me like im mad if i raise the topic. I expect you all know that feeling. I recently was sent a petition to sign (electronically via email) to oppose the planned introduction of more GMO crops to in Europe. I posted on my facebook page, and out of 100 on my friends list NOT ONE person signed it!!! No interest whatsoever. I regularly post articles on GMO and other food related horrors that dont get read or generate any interest. Its is infuriating to think that people will only sit up and take and notice of what is on their plate and the damage it is doing us when it is too late, if it isnt too late already. Rant over!!!

ali, I've had similar experiences with trying to educate my friends and family - no one seems interested. It's all very frustrating. Everyone seem interested in how their food looks, how it tastes, how fast they can get a meal and how cheaply they can buy it - not what's in it. I think if they bought into the "poison" facts, they fear they would have to change their lifestyles, and that isn't something most people want to do.

Believe me , its been a steep learning curve, but i wouldnt trade my new skills for all the packet mixes in the world. And all the energy i now have from my improved diet, means i have the get up and go, to crack on in the kitchen and enjoy the challenges of shopping on a budget and eating well.

"Monsanto’s Roundup Triggers Over 40 Plant Diseases and Endangers Human and Animal Health"

http://www.responsibletechnology.org/blog/664

Monsanto's Roundup herbicide kills all plants except Roundup-Ready plants invented by Monsanto. Even food plants.

Roundup-Ready Plants are GM plants. That means they are bad for you.

Then the Roundup herbicide damages the soil. If the crop grows, it is sick (besides being GM). Then insects that prefer sick plants eat it. If there is anything left for you to eat and if you eat it, you get sick.

Don't use any Roundup herbicide or Roundup-Ready plants. Hit Monsanto in the bottom line where it hurts.

Perhaps it would help to list those crops again:

"These genetically modified (GM) plants, which now include soy, corn, cotton, canola, and sugar beets, have inserted genetic material from viruses and bacteria that allows the crops to withstand applications of normally deadly Roundup."

Remember if you see "sugar" on an ingredient label, it can be sugar from cane or beets or both. Brands like Haagen Daas have moved to GM beet sugar exclusively. Look for these terms instead of "sugar": organic sugar, organic evaporated cane juice, cane sugar. This is going to be a bigger and bigger problem as HFCS has come under fire and companies want to appear to offer a "healthy" alternative to corn syrup. Also, unless you specifically buy organic canola oil, it is GM. This includes any product that contains canola oil. It must be listed as organic canola or the canola is GM.

Soy is also exclusively GM unless it is listed as "organic soy" on the label. Cotton is NOT a food crop. It also contains the highest concentrations of pesticides and chemicals of any other crop in America. Don't eat anything with cottonseed oil listed as an ingredient!

Other Monsanto monstrosities include Hawaiian GM papaya, some zucchini and yellow squash. This is a really succinct page listing ways to avoid buying GMOs:

Monsanto wants farmers to sign a legal document that says whatever Monsanto does is the farmer's fault and the farmer can be sued. And the farmer is not allowed to sell the farm unless this legal document goes with the farm.

Another way to get that movie, if you can't get it from hulu in your country, is:

"The Future of Food"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EnD-DiDRIJA

--- quote ---
There is a food revolution happening in America today. People are seeking out farmers' markets, organic produce and good restaurants. At the same time, our food supply is increasingly controlled by multi-national corporations. Over the past 10 years, with the advent of genetic engineering and the massive expansion of pesticide companies, like Monsanto, into the seed business, the very nature of our food system has radically changed with potentially disastrous effects on our food security. Patenting of life is now permitted, no labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMO's) in food is required, research is conducted on these issues by universities beholden to the "agri-corps" who fund them, and the major regulatory agencies are run by former execs from these very companies. All the while, the average citizens remain blissfully unaware that they are eating GMO food and supporting the aggressive "corporatization' of their food sources. In fascinating and accessible terms, 'The Future of Food' illuminates the major issues ultimately affecting us all -- some surreal, some futuristic, many frightening. Yet, 'The Future of Food' is a hopeful film, featuring insightful and moving interviews with farmers, agriculture and business experts and policymakers. It sees a future in which an informed consumer can join the revolution by demanding natural, healthy food sources that insure environmental integrity.

Shocking!! No wonder you can never successfully sue that company...and if they do get a fine, big deal...it's pennies to them. How can anyone trust the FDA or the USDA? We are on our own when it comes to defending our cause and taking our health into our own hands. But I have faith in honest people and I can sense there is a growing awareness of the unhealthy food we have been subjected to.

Government protects Monsanto.

"White House, US Courts & EPA Shaft Veterans to Protect Monsanto"
http://naturalsociety.com/white-house-us-courts-and-epa-shaft-veterans-to-protect-monsanto/

History suggests that it is the nature of government to tend toward evil. A government might start half decent but over time it tends to evolve toward evil. To some degree this tendency of government to become more and more evil can be slowed down by constitutions, rebellions, and the blood of martyrs. What is the longest freedom ever lasted?

History suggests that there is no limit to the degree of evil government can evolve to.

We in USA and Canada are accustomed to thinking of government as something benevolent, like a kindly parent. Time to change that thinking. The Founding Fathers were terrified of government and that is why they created the Constitution. The purpose of the Constitution was to cage the T. Rex. But now the T. Rex is breaking out of the cage and all 773H is happening.

Last chance: Vote for Ron Paul.

If you can't vote for Ron Paul, vote for 'none of the above'.

I agree about Monsanto, but whether or not you agree with his politics, Ron Paul is too ineffective to be of use towards any goal. Of the 620 bills he sponsored through December 2011, over a period of more than 22 years in Congress, only one was signed into law (for the sale of a federal customhouse building).

Even if Ron Paul accomplishes nothing, that is better than what the other guys do.

Have a look at this picture. Why would anyone vote in favor of all those bad things?
http://www.rense.com/1.imagesH/Honest%20Ron%20Paul.jpg

People are starting to wake up. People are more waked up in 2012 than they were in 2008. The tide is turning. Don't quit when the tide is in your favor. The NWO is terrified of Ron Paul and Alex Jones and Judge Andrew Napolitano and Sheriff Mack and the Oathkeepers. The NWO is getting its butt kicked. Join in the fun.

Ron Paul wants to cut government spending $1 trillion first year. Another trillion later. He wants to get rid of 5 (five) government departments first year.

When asked who he would pick as vice prez, he said Judge Andrew Napolitano would be a good choice.

Ron Paul gets more support from the military than all other candidates from both parties combined.

Unfortunately it is not likely that Ron Paul will get elected as prez because the elections are dishonest. The ballots are deliberately counted wrong. But even that will show up how corrupt the system is and will add to the tide against them.

Don't give up the just and honorable fight. The most glorious thing a Klingon warrior can do is die in battle.

The reason why the troops like Ron Paul is not a matter of speculation. Adam Kokesh was interviewed on the Alex Jones show and he made it clear why the troops favor Ron Paul. The troops want the illegal wars to end.

"Adam on Infowars Nightly News - Vets for Ron Paul to march on RNC"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbsegt2L8Vs

If Ron Paul doesn't get much done, it is because there is only one of him and many of the others. The solution to that is not to reject him but to elect more like him and to elect him prez.

About Monsanto having a green light. Monsanto already has a green light. And it wasn't Ron Paul's doing.

Jerry, I'm afraid that Ron Paul would be isolationist and also keep us out of wars that we should be in, not just those we have no business fighting. I know Monsanto has a green light, and believe that Ron Paul would not only favor letting Monsanto continue to do so, but would also oppose any regulations requiring companies to list GMO's, free glutamate content, etc.

If you want to know the truth about Ron Paul, ignore lamestream media. They either ignore him or tell lies about him. There is even evidence of election fraud to prevent Ron Paul from winning. The establishment is terrified of him and will go to any length to ignore him or tell lies about him, maybe even assassinate him.

I will let Ron Paul speak for himself.

"Ron Paul explains he's not an Isolationist" 3 min
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwysFnqjFdg

Ron Paul is not opposed to wars that are consistent with the Constitution.
"Ron Paul - Obama Violated War Powers and Constitution" 1:26
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3fw0Fssny8

"Ron Paul on The Constitution and War - from 11/12/11 CBS Debate"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVPWFllYiKo 0:49

On the idea that Iran is a threat, that is just lies, like the lies they told about Iraq. Iran is one of the most peaceful countries in the world. The real threat is the USA.

About listing GMOs, free glutamate:
Ron Paul seems to have not said anything about those things. So I don't know whether Ron Paul would require listing of ingredients.

But whatever government regulates tends to get into unintended consequences. When government regulates anything, beware. Everything King Midas touched turned into gold; everything government touches turns into xxxx. FDA (Fraud and Deception Administration) approves only bad things, never good things.

I am quite sure that Ron Paul would allow (not require) companies to say "This food is 100% non-GMO" or "This food has no free glutamate" if that is the truth. If it is not the truth, they would be guilty of fraud without any special laws. Such a label could be a marketing advantage and any company that did not use such a label would be suspect. It is interesting that Monsanto wanted a law against saying that a food is non-GMO even if it is the truth.

I'm not much concerned about labels because I usually don't eat foods that require a list of ingredients. If it has a list of ingredients, I tend to not trust it because most food companies are crookeder than a dog's hind leg and they have no more respect for truth than an alley cat has for marriage and they practise Ferengi Rule of Acquisition 239: 'Never be afraid to mislabel a product.'

Ron Paul needs to make more sense before he will get my support. These videos make it clear why his bills never went anywhere in Congress.

1st video:
He says he supports withdrawal from the United Nations and NATO. Other countries will interpret such withdrawals as isolationism regardless of how Ron Paul spins it. When he says our diplomats aren't talking to people and need to start doing so I wonder what planet he's living on. When he says no to tariffs he doesn't understand that when they were a larger percentage of our tax base they used to help prevent our jobs from going overseas.

2nd video:
Here he says we shouldn't have gotten involved in Iraq and Afghanistan, after having praised Bush's foreign policy in Video #1

3rd video:
I have no problems with this statement, but if he really believes this then he is going against how almost all of his Republican colleagues vote on such issues and conforming much more to how Democrats vote on them. The Republicans have been voting more to keep us at war. This stance alone will prevent Ron Paul from ever winning the Republican nomination, yet he insists on running as a Republican, not as an Independent. He's 76 years old and should have figured out by now why he's still being marginalized by his own party. Until he does so he will go nowhere.

Regarding labeling, I'm concerned that Ron Paul's laissez-faire attitude would allow corporations to do and say whatever they want without regulation. None of this matters, though, as he's too far out of the mainstream of his chosen party to be taken seriously.

Ron Paul appears to be his own person and not to be bought by special interests. He wants to tell it like it is even though the idea is not popular. Although I like him a lot and agree with 95% of what he stands for, I can't ever see him getting the nomination. He's a bit old, and doesn't orate as well as most.

Do they actually think we are so stupid as to think that Monsanto funded research on Monsanto products might find that they are not safe? Like: don't buy our products?

http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/surprise-monsanto-funded-research-finds-their-products-safe
http://tinyurl.com/83tablk

There are 2 kinds of science: honest and dishonest, also known as corporate science and independent science.

The goal of honest science is to find truth. The goal of dishonest science is to peddle a product.

Both honest science and dishonest science are peer reviewed. Peer review in honest science is to find truth. Peer review in dishonest science is to peddle the product.

In dishonest science, the conclusion is decided -before- the study. If the study does not support the pre-decided conclusion, the study is rejected or more research is needed. If Monsanto had found their product not safe, they would say more research is needed. Sometimes fudging the data enough to prove the right conclusion is a sonofabitch.

Aspartame is the most tested substance in history, they say. They had a 773Huva time fudging the studies enough to prove that aspartame is safe.

They took a gene from a fish and put it in a tomato, so it doesn't freeze.

They took a gene from a spider and put it in a goat, and the goat milk has spider silk.

They took a gene from a bacteria and put it in corn, so the corn produces insecticide so it kills insects that eat it. What happens when you eat it?

They made a Frankenstein salmon that people don't wanna eat.

They made a GE cotton plant that kills animals that eat it.

They ruined canola.

Now they wanna genetically engineer humans. Bill Gates is in on this deal. You think maybe they might screw up? Considering everything they did they screwed up so far?

I know this is a new subject, but didn't know if anyone would see this post on older discussions. I wanted to give a heads up on a product I bought that contains seaweed. It's Magnesium Gel with Aloe Vera by Health and Wisdom Inc. Seaweed is not on the front label and truthfully had forgotten that seaweed is glutamate rich. After using it, I had an intense migraine with vivid nightmares in which I was in a rage. I've never had a dream or any waking emotion as intense as that nightmare was. When I woke up I had swollen lumps sticking out of my neck!
I hope this will deter someone from making the same mistake I did. I use the magnesium that Deb recommends from Beyond A Century - Magnesium Orotate and have never had any adverse side effects. The owner of the Health Food Store really sold us on this product. Anyway, I just wanted to warn MSG sensitive people about this product.

Genetically-Engineered Meat Isn’t Tested for Human Safety Because It’s Treated as an “Animal Drug”

Eater Beware
USA Today reported last October that the FDA doesn’t even test the safety of genetically engineered food:

Q: Does the FDA test these foods before they’re allowed on the market?

A: No. Instead there is a voluntary consultation process. Genetically engineered foods are overseen by the FDA, but there is no approval process. Foods are presumed to be safe unless the FDA has evidence to the contrary, Jaffe says. The FDA “has to show that there may be a problem with the food, as opposed to the company needing to prove it’s safe to FDA’s satisfaction before it can get on the market,” he says.

Now we know why.

Bruce Friedrich reports:

The problems begin with FDA’s bizarre decision to consider GE meat using its “New Animal Drug Approval” (NADA) process, a process designed for evaluation of new animal drugs (hence the name), not genetically engineered animals. The GE salmon themselves [which increase allergies in people eating them ... but are still being approved for human consumption] are, according to this analysis, the animal drug. As food blogger Ari LeVaux explains on Civil Eats, “the drug per se is AquaBounty’s patented genetic construct… Inserted at the animal’s one-cell stage, the gene sequence exists in every cell of the adult fish’s body.”

Of course, NADA was not designed to analyze the human health or environmental consequences of new animal drugs, and because the animals are the drugs in this process, their welfare is also ignored. In all three areas, there is ample reason for concern.

Since they aren’t consumed by humans, new animal drugs are not evaluated for their human health impact, so perhaps it’s unsurprising that FDA’s analysis in this area has been almost nonexistent. Health and consumer rights advocates have raised alarms, noting among other concerns, that: 1) these animals will require massive doses of antibiotics to keep them alive in dirty, crowded aquaculture conditions, and we don’t know these antibiotics’ effect on human health; 2) the limited testing that has been conducted was carried out by or for AquaBounty and included shockingly small sample sizes; and 3) what studies have been done indicated increased allergic potential and increased levels of the hormone IGF-1, which is linked to various cancers — an outcome ignored in FDA’s approval according to the Consumers Union, Food & Water Watch, and the Center for Food Safety.

This is food fraud, and classic corruption by the FDA.

It is the same type of collusion between government and big business which has caused the financial crisis, theFukushima nuclear meltdown, the Gulf oil spill and other major disasters (and see this; and number 9).

As we noted last year:

Given that genetically engineered foods have been linked to obesity, cancer, liver failure, infertility and all sorts of other diseases (brief videos here and here), the burden should be on the … gmo producers to prove it’s safe.

But – if the FDA is treating genetically modified fish and meat as an “animal drug” – no one will test it for human safety.

"Monsanto and the FDA: 2 crime families working a trillion-dollar hustle" by Jon Rappoport

https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2013/03/01/monsanto-and-the-fda-2-crime-families-working-a-trillion-dollar-hustle/

From the article:

quote:

Imagine this. A killer is put on trial, and the jury, in a surprise verdict, finds him not guilty. Afterwards, reporters interview this killer. He says, “The jury freed me. It’s up to them. They decide. That’s what is justice is all about.”

Then the press moves along to members of the jury, who say: Well, we had to take the defendant’s word. He said he was innocent, so that’s what we ruled.

That’s an exact description of the FDA and Monsanto partnership.

The Monsanto Protection Act would allow Monsanto to do whatever they please and the government wouldn't be able to stop them. It's like a license to commit crime.

This is from the usda website:

"NO HORMONES (pork or poultry):
Hormones are not allowed in raising hogs or poultry. Therefore, the claim "no hormones added" cannot be used on the labels of pork or poultry unless it is followed by a statement that says "Federal regulations prohibit the use of hormones."


I don't imagine you believe it, right?

Quaker Oats admits that its oats are sprayed with glyphosate by farmers.
This fact is a total shock to most consumers who are completely unaware that glyphosate is now routinely sprayed on non-GMO crops.

Quaker Oats sued over glyphosate found in its 'all natural' oats... the truth is starting to come out about widespread glyphosate contamination of the food supply

Deadly glyphosate now being sprayed on oats, wheat, barley and other crops as a dessicant -

Sick. Disturbing and disgusting.
However, I dont totally trust that website, ( the one mentioned just above) but usually the things i dont totally trust is just their logic. I have not yet been able to verify that they ever present false quotes or anything. My mom is really attached to quaker oats. Its that smiling gentle face of the old timey quaker man on the front and the fact that it's an American institution perhaps. And...its probably cheaper than the organic.
She feeds it to me, too. I just plastered warning lables all over the cannister in our pantry after reading that article. It might be true. We have an organic brand( whole foods 365 brand) in there, but she heads for quaker non organic. Maybe she doesnt see the organic brand????

I'm sure that originally quaker was a wholesome brand....but over the many years, things happen to companies...they get bought, or passed down...the original visionary dies... But the company lives on under the name... Possibly retaining none of the originator's virtues. So unfortunate. The customer sees the familiar logo and name, and with good memories inspiring trust, they have brand loyalty. Msg isnt even needed for that. Sad facts.

I also read the article Jerry Story posted just above this last one. Most interesting to me was the part about Monsanto being involved in the Manhattan project. Maybe that's how they originally got their tentacles into our government. Boy, they must be dug in deep by now!.... from the look of things.
