(NaturalNews) By now we're all sadly aware of the terror atrocity in Nice, France that took the lives of at least 80 people. The attack was insane and horrific, and my prayers go out to all those affected by the senseless violence. Yet it isn't just ISIS terrorists who are destroying lives in our world, and it's not just trucks that damage our bodies and cause pain and suffering. The number of lives ripped from our world by the horrific attack on innocent people in France pales in comparison to what Whole Foods and the Organic Trade Association just did to 300+ million people in America as you'll learn below...
Working in agreement with Monsanto's devious plan, Whole Foods and the Organic Trade Association just plowed over America's health-conscious consumers by backing the passage of the "Dark Act 2.0" GMO anti-labeling bill. From Natural News:
"It's important for the world to understand that it was the Organic Trade Association that killed our state GMO labeling laws by backing Monsanto's Stabenow-Roberts bill," Maine organic seed farmer and longtime OSGATA president, Jim Gerritsen, said in a statement.
"It's clear that Organic Trade Association has come under the control of a small group of lobbyists controlled by giant-food corporations that also own organic brands. ... The Organic Trade Association can no longer be trusted, and it's clear that organic farmers can no longer condone this dubious trade association's troubling behavior."
Now passed by both the U.S. Senate and House, this bill outlaws all GMO labeling laws nationwide. It will cause millions of people to unknowingly eat foods containing genetically engineered ingredients linked to cancer tumors, digestive disorders, infertility and death. The bill makes GMO labeling entirely "voluntary" and has zero penalties for non-compliance. Even the FDA has said it would exempt as much as 99% of all foods from being labeled.
Chemical violence is another form of violence against women and children
There are many types of violence that can destroy lives. Kinetic violence is what we just witnessed in France with the mowing down of innocent bystanders by a 10-ton truck. Kinetic violence is what most people imagine when they hear the word "violence" but there's another type of violence that's causing widespread harm, suffering and death in our world: CHEMICAL VIOLENCE.
When chemicals damage our cells, our organs, our bodies and minds, that is a type of violence committed against our person, especially when we are denied the right to avoid them by knowing what we're buying and eating. Chemical violence is a violation of every woman's body, and I mention women in particular because they are the nurturers of the unborn (and the recently born who are still nursing). Yet "chemical violence" is precisely the kind of violence Whole Foods has tolerated for the last two decades while it continued to sell unlabeled GMOs to unsuspecting consumers, many of whom falsely believed Whole Foods sold no GMOs at all.
Why did so many health-conscious consumers believe Whole Foods' lies? Because some Whole Foods stores trained their managers to lie to consumers and claim the stores sold no GMOs, even when the store shelves were filled with unlabeled GMOs. This all came out in 2013 with the Organic Spies undercover video fiasco.
Whole Foods has also engaged in systematic marketing fraud by emblazoning its buildings with utterly fraudulent statements like the one you see in the photo below: "Nothing Artificial, EVER."
That's Aaron Dykes reporting from a Whole Foods parking lot in Austin, Texas. The claim "Nothing Artificial, Ever" implies that Whole Foods sells no GMOs, as GMOs are of course artificially engineered. This is just one of the multitude of lies and fraudulent deceptions Whole Foods has pulled off over the years, all while apparently plotting to push a Monsanto-favored law that would ban GMO labeling laws nationwide. (Whole Foods and Monsanto both agree that GMO labeling is bad for business... who's gonna keep buying all their poisons if the labels tell the truth?)
Whole Foods sells products that are laced glyphosate... here's what it did to lab rats
To this day, Whole Foods continues to sell a multitude of foods that contain glyphosate, the toxic herbicide chemical sold by Monsanto as "Roundup." I know this because I have already tested products purchased at Whole Foods in my ISO accredited laboratory known as CWClabs.com, which is internationally recognized and accredited for conducting "analytical excellence" in food contamination analysis.
Using a combination of liquid chromatography, mass spectrometry and a sample prep technique involving solid phase extraction, I've already seen alarming concentrations of glyphosate in products I purchased at Whole Foods. Later this year, I'm going to publicly publish a list of glyphosate-laced products being sold by Whole Foods for the sake of science conducted in the public interest. No doubt Whole Foods' lawyers will attempt to stop me from publishing this information, but they will fail. With your support and my laboratory, science will prevail against Whole Foods' attempts to hide what they are selling and deceive their own oblivious customers.
Now that Whole Foods has conspired to cover up GMO labeling nationwide, independent labs like mine are the only remaining option for the public to know the truth about the chemical composition of products being retailed by Whole Foods. The more they cover it up, the more we publish the truth they don't want you to know. Real science is Whole Foods' worst enemy, and thanks to the support of Natural News readers, we now have real science working for We the People instead of the corporate backstabbers and chemical violence pushers. (By the way, if you wish to support our funding of these scientific initiatives, help support my new online store known as HealthRangerStore.com, where everything we sell is laboratory tested for known contaminants. And no, we don't sell anything that's GMO. My store is what Whole Foods only pretends to be...)
So just how "violent" is the chemical violence related to glyphosate and GMOs that Whole Foods continues to sell?
The animals on the GM diet suffered mammary tumors, as well as severe liver and kidney damage. The researchers said 50 percent of males and 70 percent of females died prematurely, compared with only 30 percent and 20 percent in the control group.
• Up to 50% of males and 70% of females suffered premature death.
• Rats that drank trace amounts of Roundup (at levels legally allowed in the water supply) had a 200% to 300% increase in large tumors.
• Rats fed GM corn and traces of Roundup suffered severe organ damage including liver damage and kidney damage.
• The study fed these rats NK603, the Monsanto variety of GM corn that's grown across North America and widely fed to animals and humans. This is the same corn that's in your corn-based breakfast cereal, corn tortillas and corn snack chips.
Whole Foods CEO Walter Robb caught on video supporting Monsanto-inspired anti-GMO labeling law
The federal law that now pretends to enact "GMO labeling" but actually outlaws GMO labeling was heavily promoted by Whole Foods' CEO Walter Robb who was caught on video openly supporting the Monsanto-engineered law. To the public, of course, Whole Foods deceptively presented a false narrative that insisted "there is no truth to these claims." Less than 24 hours later, Whole Foods was caught red-handed in this Natural News investigation.
"Today, Congress trampled on consumer and states’ rights, choosing instead serve the interests of Monsanto and the Grocery Manufacturers Association,” said Ronnie Cummins, international director of the Organic Consumers Association. “This bill was written bought and paid for by corporations who clearly have something to hide. Replacing clear, on-package labels with a system that is convoluted, inconvenient and discriminates against the elderly, the poor and anyone without a smartphone or internet access is inexcusable, especially when consumers in 64 other countries have the right to that same information."
Organic Trade Association betrays everyone, goes all-in for Monsanto
The streets of Nice, France are littered with the bodies of the dead and dying tonight, yet the cancer clinics of America will soon be littered with far more expansive suffering from the chemical violence victims of Monsanto, Whole Foods and the Organic Trade Association.
To the dismay of nearly the entire organic industry, the Organic Trade Association has now been entirely infiltrated by Monsanto's minions -- the disgusting factory food giants of the organic industry. At this point, the OTA is now wholly beholden to Monsanto and the interests of chemical agriculture. Essentially, biotech operatives strapped suicide vests to themselves, waltzed into the organic industry and detonated every last echo of credibility or honesty. They are no doubt celebrating the legislative bloodshed just like ISIS Jihadis in France.
Yes, these people really are terrorists
Lest anyone question the comparison of biotech operatives to ISIS terrorist, allow me to assure you they both operate with the same disregard for ethics, morals, human life and the environment. I have personally been death-threated, stalked and systematically defamed by biotech industry operatives and their Monsanto mafia lackeys in the media, some of whom are named on this website MonsantoMafia.com.
These people are the most vile, lawless, despicable destroyers of life ever to walk this world... and Whole Foods just combined forces with them to pass this shameful law that will deny all of us the right to know what we're buying and eating. With the biotech infiltration of the Organic Trade Association, it's now probably only a matter of time before GMOs will be redefined as "organic" and allowed into organic foods. That's their goal: To destroy the very definition of "organic" by overrunning it.
The term "organic" is now very close to being meaningless, and that's a huge loss for all people who are desperately attempting to protect life, health and the environment. To put in all in perspective, the number of people who are going to be killed by cancer caused by GMO-related herbicide chemicals over the next 10 years dwarfs the number of innocent victims just crushed to death in France. For every one victim of ISIS terrorism in our world, there are no doubt thousands of victims of the chemical agriculture industry that maliciously pushes deadly chemicals by threatening scientists, bribing government officials and fabricating bad science just like Big Tobacco once did to sell its own cancer-causing poisons to the world.
There are many ways that people needlessly die in our world. Whole Foods just contributed to a huge one that will now negatively impact all of us for decades to come. What I now know with certainty is that Whole Foods Market knows no shame and will stop at nothing to plow through the people on its way to corporate profits at any cost. When I see the streets littered with bodies laying in pools of blood and loved ones crying over their lifeless limbs, I can only think of Whole Foods and its malicious, utter betrayal of the very concept of what makes a food WHOLE to begin with. The corporation mocks us all -- and mocks itself -- by selling out to the interests of Monsanto and the chemical poisoners of our world.
The streets of France may be dripping with blood, but the food shelves of America are saturated with poison. And a huge quantity of that poison is sold inside buildings that carry the utterly false, misleading and fraudulent name of "Whole Foods."
One of the best ways you can help stop chemical violence against women and children is to stop shopping at Whole Foods.
