Being Slowly Poisoned At The Local Supermarket?

by Al Benson Jr.

It would seem that our Ruling Elite, our "Shadow Government," has decreed that we are, at least most of us, to perish from poisoning. And this poisoning will take many forms. We are being poisoned politically by a government and its hired "news" media who tell us virtually nothing that is really going on--hence we have no real knowledge to base anything on as to what is really happening in the country. We are being educationally poisoned by a government "education" system and its attendant programs (Commie Core and others) where our kids, even a the lower age levels, are being taught more about sex and socialism than they are about math, literature, and real history.

And we are being slowly poisoned at the local supermarket by much of what is for sale there that passes for food. How many of you remember that old Charleton Heston movie from the early 1970s Solyent Green? So you think the Food and Drug Administration in Washington will protect you when it comes to food? Don't kid yourself. They are much more concerned with prosecuting those who wish to use raw milk than they are about what you eat--and that's not by accident.

I have a good friend who studies up on proper diet, healthy food, natural vitamins, and such. Years ago he told me about a sticky little substance called High Fructose Corn Syrup. He said you'd find it in an awful lot of different foods. He said that its main function was to make people hungry, so they'd eat more, and supposedly the "more" they ate would also contain high fructose corn syrup, so it was a self-perpetuating cycle. After talking to him I started checking the ingredients in much of what was for sale in our local markets. Sure enough, high fructose corn syrup was in all kinds of stuff--from cereal to salad dressing to soda, from bread, buns, jelly and pancake syrup to you name it.

So, when my son and I went shopping we started avoiding all the stuff with high fructose corn syrup in it. If there was bread or jelly or peanut butter that didn't have that ingredient in it, then that's what we bought. And apparently other folks had started doing the same thing, because pretty soon we started seeing products on the shelves that plainly stated: no high fructose corn syrup. Interestingly enough, many companies made, and still make, two different varieties of their products--one that omitted the high fructose corn syrup, and one that didn't. The one that left that ingredient out was for those who were alert enough to look for it, and the other was for those who were not yet awake as to what was in what they were eating. But at least some people are looking now and that's encouraging.

We've noticed that it gets harder and harder to buy decent bread anymore, not because of the poor quality of the wheat, but because of what they do to it before its harvested. I recently got an email from a friend that dealt with this. It stated, in part: "According to Dr. Stephanie Seneff of MIT who has studied the issue in depth and who I recently saw present on the subject at a nutritional conference in Indianapolis, desiccating non-organic wheat crops with glyohosate just before harvest came into vogue in the late 1990s with the result that most of the non-organic wheat in the United States is now contaminated with it." Doesn't sound overly encouraging does it? Even Wikipedia had commentary on this glyphosate.  It said, in part: "Glyphosate was quickly adopted by farmers, even moreso when Monsanto introduced glyphosate resistant crops, enabling farmers to kill weeds without killing their crops...While glyphosate and formulations such as Roundup have been approved by regulatory bodies worldwide and are widely used, concerns about their effects on humans and the environment persist...Some crops have been genetically engineered to be resistant to glyphosate (i.e. Roundup Ready, also created by Monsanto."

So now, if you are going to use this stuff on your wheat before harvest and have it not kill the wheat, your wheat already has to have been "genetically modified." Do you suppose that fact, plus what they spray on it, has any effect on the wheat in the bread or cereal you eat? Naw, of course not--after all, the "regulatory bodies" say it doesn't, which, based on this government's record of veracity, would tend to make me doubt very much anything they tell us anymore. If they insist this stuff won't hurt us, then I'd start looking around for some produce this stuff wasn't used on--like organic food.

I've also noticed of late that there are now foods in the market that specify "Non-GMO" which means they are letting you know that this is real food and not some hybridization of ...whatever. We are on a fixed income and so we can't buy totally organic food, but where we can afford it we do and we look for things labeled Non-GMO. We search for foods with minimal ingredients and minimal processing. Food with a whole big list of ingredients whose names I can't begin to pronounce is a tip-off that we want something with less additives and, hopefully, a little more food value.

There is obviously a lot on this subject that I can't begin to get into here. There are pages and pages on the Internet pertaining to this. But the upshot of it is--that between big government, big agri-business, and big regulatory laxness (in certain cases) it is all yet one more phase of the psychological war being conducted on the American public. We are slowly being poisoned--physically, morally, and spiritually--where they can get away with it. In spite of what they try to feed us, we have got to start waking up, not only to the political (and spiritual) warfare emanating from Washington, but also to the agricultural part of that war that is being declared on us via our weekly grocery shopping.  What we ultimately end up eating may well be a determining factor in our ability to fight back.
