Two articles came out this month that should not go unnoticed by farm and food freedom lovers and those that depend upon farm fresh meat, eggs and dairy to maintain or restore their health.
These articles are about the two food safety bills before Congress. These bills are not about food safety, they are about control of the food supply. The Food Safety bills are no more about food safety than NAFTA or the banker bailout was to create jobs. The bills should be called the Food Controls Act of 2010.
A very thorough treatment of the two food safety bills is by attorney Pete Kennedy of the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund. Pete says:
“In reality, neither bill would improve food safety; in fact, the new requirements would cause an increase in imported food, a major source of the food safety problems in this country. Either bill would diminish the freedom and liberty Americans currently have to obtain the food of their choice from the source of their choice.”
Kennedy analyzes six key provisions in the bills all of which you may find shocking in Food Safety: The Worst of Both Bills (HR 2749 & S 510)
For those readers who want a bigger picture of the global politics of food (people) control, here is an excerpt from a brief article by Steve Green called S 510 is Hissing in the Grass over at Food Freedom blog. It managed to glean 180 comments—so it created quite a stir. The video clips are also enlightening.
S 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010, may be the most dangerous bill in the history of the US. It is to our food what the bailout was to our economy, only we can live without money.
“If accepted [S 510] would preclude the public’s right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes. It will become the most offensive authority against the cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products of one’s choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law or, if you like, the will of God.” ~Dr. Shiv Chopra, Canada Health whistleblower.
