BUSTED! Feds caught hiding the truth about your food
It might be a new year... but we're getting the same old line of nonsense from the feds!
The EPA just fired off a new report that's supposed to reassure American consumers that their food is safe.
But dig a little deeper, and you'll find that it's rife with conflict, contradictions, and outright fabrications -- because once again, the EPA is not protecting you.
It's out to help powerful industry interests -- even if that means covering up a potentially deadly risk hiding in your food.
The new report claims that glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup weed killer, is perfectly safe.
That's beyond insane.
There are multiple studies linking this poison to cancer, yet the EPA's own review of the science supposedly found no link at all.
It's almost as if it was deliberately IGNORING the studies that exposed the risk -- and at least one consumer group says that's just what the agency did.
The Center for Biological Diversity has accused the EPA of relying on biased industry-funded studies and ignoring the agency's own guidelines for establishing cancer risk.
This smells like a cover-up to me, which is no surprise given the EPA's long and ugly track record of protecting the chemicals giants that make these poisons and the agricultural industry that dumps them onto the crops that end up on your dinner plate.
Here's the real deal: The only reason this link is even up for debate is that we STILL don't have a solid high-quality study on the effects of long-term low-level exposure in humans.
That's not an accident, if you ask me.
It's because the EPA is afraid of what just such a study would reveal!
What we DO know already is alarming enough for the World Health Organization's cancer agency to declare this chemical to be "probably carcinogenic" to humans... and for California to require cancer warning labels on its packaging.
The industry is fighting all of this tooth and nail. It's even suing California over that labeling decision.
Clearly, it has lined up the EPA to help them with its public relations effort.
Don't put your health on the line in the name of protecting industry giants.
Take action now to minimize your exposure and cut your risks.
It's not as easy as it should be. This stuff has been drifting from the fields where it's sprayed and onto other nearby crops.
It's even turning up in the food supply in some very unlikely places, including honey, ice cream, and orange juice.
The best way to avoid it -- as much as you can, anyway -- is to switch to a diet of all-organic foods (ideally from local farmers) to minimize the cross-contamination that can occur in shipping, packaging, and storage.
