America is the Sickest Country on the Planet because of Greed and Stupidity.
Isn’t it strange that Americans spend more money on healthcare than the average person in any other country in the world, yet people in Norway, Switzerland, Canada, U.K., France and other developed nations (and some not so developed countries) all outlive the Americans.
Why are the Americans not living longer, despite all the money they spend on doctors, hospitals and drugs?
It now looks as though the food they are eating could be poisoning them. This is even though they have the FDA supposedly making sure the American food supply is safe.
The problem is that the FDA is not actually protecting the American public but is protecting the profits of American big business.
It’s a conspiracy that runs right from a few massive food-producing companies all the way up to the highest of ranks: The government of the United States of America.
It’s a tangled web of corruption that keeps politicians in power and safeguards the profits of certain corporations.
It is reasonable to assume that more than 99% of Americans are putting themselves at risk simply because they don’t know the truth about their food supply.
They don’t know they are eating foods that aren’t what nature made. They don’t know these modified foods could be causing cancerous tumors that silently grow within them.
Have They Noticed they are Getting Sicker than Ever Before?
Americans get sick more often than Europeans and people in other industrialized countries.
And since the mid-1990s, the number of Americans suffering from chronic diseases, such as heart disease, asthma, cancer and diabetes, has nearly doubled.
America’s infant mortality has increased and life span has plunged.
Why is this happening? What has changed over the last two decades that could possibly explain this huge downward spiral in the health of our nation?
Well, one thing definitely changed in the mid-1990s: the food they eat.
A little over twenty years ago, scientists started tinkering with our food supply, taking genes from one species and forcing it into the DNA of other species. Initially I suspect it was to see if it could be done, they call this scientific curiosity. The problem here was the accountants, IP lawyers and lots of other faceless wonders got involved and decided they could make a fortune if they spun a reasonable “we can save the World from famine” fairy tale, and secured some high powered help by liberally spending money into the pockets of the lawmakers.
What they achieved was to create new organisms that did not exist in nature; these are the organisms that are now part of the majority of the food eaten in America.
These are crops that have been genetically engineered to either produce their own pesticides or withstand massive doses of herbicides.
Initially these came with the promise they would increase crop yields and profits. So, many in the farm community welcomed this innovation.
As a result, starting in 1996, these genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, spread rapidly through U.S. fields, and some other countries as well.
This was a big windfall for the biotech firms that developed these altered crops.
This is because genetically engineered seeds are patentable. So the companies that develop these seeds can have total control of the market. This represents billions of dollars in sales.
For example, take a look at a company named Monsanto. With a 90% market share, this company dominates the GMO industry.
Farmers who purchase Monsanto’s patented GMO seeds have to sign a contract. This agreement forbids farmers from keeping any new seed produced by the crop for the following year, or even saving leftover seeds. This contract effectively turns freehold farmers into serfs tied to Monsanto and once the farmer uses the supplied seed, then they can never remove the DNA traces from their land and farms. It is because of this residual DNA and the occasional spilled seed hiding in a corner, that Monsanto now effectively owns the farm. Should a farmer now terminate the contract after a couple of years then the heavies move against the farmer in the form of high-powered lawyers to prosecute the farmer for theft of intellectual property. The traces of DNA in the fields and one seed hiding in the corner is enough for the courts to side with Monsanto and fine the farmer out of existence. And who is standing in the wings to purchase the delinquent farm but Monsanto (or one of their companies) for pennies on the dollar.
In other words, farmers must agree to use the seeds for one-time only. This basically ensures a perpetual stream of cash flow for the company because farmers will have to buy new seeds every year.
It was regarded as a win-win situation for the farmers and biotech firms. The farmers get bigger crops that can grow in any conditions – this was the promise, but that has now been shown to be a lie. The biotech firms make money selling their seeds irrespective of the final results.
This subverting of the traditional farming practices of saving seed from one harvest to the next planting produced massive profits that were used to buy up nearly every seed company the biotech companies could find. This is because they want to control the World’s food supply, and then they control the World and all the people living on it.
A lot of people got very very rich, and very powerful selling these genetically modified crops. There’s a massive amount of money at stake here.
But here’s the frightening thing…
According to new scientific evidence, these genetically modified crops may be extremely dangerous to all our families, not just the Americans.
And just like people used to smoke cigarettes because they had no idea it could kill them, most Americans today are eating this food because they are unaware of the risks (and the fact that nearly every food in the supermarket contains GMO’s). This dangerous food is also being exported to nearly every other country in the World by American companies.
They do it because government agencies, such as the Food and Drug Administration (or FDA), have said these genetically modified crops are safe.
But can we trust the FDA to tell the truth?
Well, I don’t see how we can as the FDA has actually never conducted any studies on humans to prove this food is safe.
In other words, this government agency has intentionally unleashed a host of potentially harmful foods onto American and the Worlds dinner tables by the power of exports and the WTO. Why you might ask? Because of the revolving door policy that the FDA has with the large food and drug companies. A company wants a particular change to happen that benefits them, so an executive from the company suddenly is working for the FDA, when the change has happened that person leaves the FDA and returns to the company they previously worked for.
How are GMO’s killing us?
Did you know that about 80% of your immune system resides in your gut?
And, of course, the gut is the main connection between our body and any kind of food.
So, if for any reason, your body sees food as an alien object, something that cannot be found in nature then your immune system might attack it, creating an inflammatory reaction. In other words, inflammation flares up whenever your body feels threatened.
Well, it turns out that since 1996, when GM foods were introduced into our diet, several digestive disorders related to gut inflammation have skyrocketed.
Is this just a coincidence? Well, think about this for a moment.
Scientists have changed the gene sequence of some of the food we eat, making it a foreign object. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that our immune system might be reacting to this new kind of food, causing inflammation.
And that’s a big deal because the health damages can go well beyond diseases related to digestion.
Because inflammation has been linked to a number of health problems.
In fact, recent medical research shows that hidden inflammation, the kind that originates in your gut, is at the root of ALL chronic illness we experience – conditions like heart disease, obesity, diabetes, dementia, depression, cancer, and even autism.
Maybe that explains why autism has increased 600% since GM foods came on the market, or why the number of Americans with diabetes has nearly tripled in the past two decades.
That’s why TIME magazine has called inflammation “the secret killer”. According to the magazine,
“It destabilizes cholesterol deposits in the coronary arteries, leading to heart attacks and potentially even strokes.”
“It chews up nerve cells in the brains of Alzheimer’s victims. It may even foster the proliferation of abnormal cells and facilitate their transformation into cancer.”
“In other words, chronic inflammation may be the engine that drives many of the most feared illnesses of middle and old age.”
Without knowing it parents are feeding their families food that could cause inflammation and lead to all these deadly diseases.
But the science is clear.
Inflammation happens for a reason… it happens when a bacterium or toxin or some other irritant triggers an immune response.
And several studies have shown that genetically modified food is triggering that response.
For example, Dr. P. M. Bhargava, one of the world’s top biologists, who has reviewed 600 scientific journals, concluded that GM foods in the US are largely responsible for the increase in many serious diseases.
And Dr. Robin Bernhoft, a Harvard-trained doctor and director of the Bernhoft Center for Advanced Medicine in Ojai, California, has found that patient health improves when GM foods are removed from their diet.
Dr. Miguel Gonzalez, a physician in California, believes that “genetically modified foods are causing inflammation of the bowel.”
And research from the American Academy of Environmental Medicine states that
“several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with GM food consumption including infertility, immune dysfunction, accelerated aging, dysfunction of cholesterol synthesis, insulin regulation, and protein formation, and changes in the liver, kidney, spleen and gastrointestinal system.”
As you can see, many scientists believe that GM food is what’s triggering inflammation.
And if you don’t address that properly, you may end up with coronary artery disease, arthritis, cancer and other chronic illnesses.
The answer is to eat Non-GMO certified foods and avoid GM Foods altogether.
World Wasabi products are certified Non-GMO by independent organizations. You can trust this product.
