Since I've referred to Mansanto in various articles and links I've posted, I thought I would give you a link that, I think, gives a very good overview as to why we should be concerned about this corporation and how it is negatively impacting our world. Here's the link:
I have been so distracted lately. My parents have had quite a few health issues that needed attention, all at once. So, here is a link with information regarding the wikileaks and the US trying to force Genetically Modified foods into the French market. It's ugly.
I've included a couple of links so that you could could the full impact of what's going on as those corporations that have a vested interest in hybrid and genetically modified foods attempt to manipulate the world food supplies to line their pockets and take away a very fundamental human right, to have personal, immediate access to food and food production.
Hello. I trust you are all keeping warm and cozy, enjoying this weather. One of the great ways to beat the winter blahs is to pull out a few recipes that you've thought about trying. Having the oven on in the winter, filling the house with delicious smells, lifts everyone's spirits.
I wasn't sure if you all heard, but the Updated Food Safety Bill did pass and was singned into law a couple of weeks ago. Also, it did have an amendedment attached that excludes the food producers making under $500.000/year, I believe. Please, do some investigating and doublecheck that fact. My memory is not working so good. :)
If you are in the food production business, in whatever capacity, and whatever level, you need to keep a careful watch on this bill and others like it that are relative to food production. The reason I say that is that during my research on this particular food bill, I discovered unknown information regarding seed harvesting and the whole controversy regarding Mansanto and the hybrid/genetically engineered food fight. That's one that is REALLY scary. I had come across a little tidbit, (when I find it again, I'll post the link), that during the WikiLeaks, it was revealed that the US administration threatened economic punishments to France if they did not allow hybrid seeds into their country. They had been resisting because they take great pride in the fact that they have very strict controls in place to insure the high quality of food that they produce.
In the meantime, (while I look for that link), here is another interesting link regarding food safety:
We all LOVE good food and it's that love that usually causes us to seek out everything 'food'. We love to look at the pictures, we're enthralled with the foodie programs and one of our greatest trophies is to say we ate with some pretigious chef or at in an exclusive restaurant. We're movitvated to spend that little extra to buy the best, when we can. Writing this post, I'm hoping to really bring attention to the 'other side' of good eating, our bodies need us to seek out and ingest key foods so that our body can run as efficiently as possible and do it's job to keep us healthy and functioning at our best. I try to read over articles regarding health maintenance and it seems that two subjects keep coming up in a variety of illnesses and health issues, "inflamation" and "immunity". I encourage you to do a little web surfing and see for yourself how important it is to tend to these two items regarding your own health and see how you might incorporate some healthy personal choices to raise your own level of health.
I've included a link that focuses on boosting your immunity through specific foods and some simple 'tricks' you can do that will boost your immunity so that your immunity can do a better job keeping you well, especially through the cold and flu season.
When Roland and I met, I was one of those people who opened the box or can and warmed up the family meal. After our marriage in 2005, I truely began to appreciate what food is really about, not only that it can taste very good, and be nutritious, but that it can be a celebration of who you are and the people that you share it with.
