Increased consumption of ultraprocessed foods (UPFs) was associated with more than 10% of all-cause premature, preventable deaths in Brazil in 2019. That is the finding of a new peer-reviewed study in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.
The findings are significant not only for Brazil but also for high income countries such as the U S, Canada, the UK, and Australia, where UPFs account for more than half of total calorific intake.
Brazilians consume far less of these products than countries with high incomes. This means the estimated impact would be even higher in richer nations.
UPFs are ready-to-eat-or-heat industrial formulations made with ingredients extracted from foods or synthesised in laboratories. These have gradually been replacing traditional foods and meals made from fresh and minimally processed ingredients in many countries.
The study found that approximately 57,000 deaths in one year could be attributed to the consumption of UPFs – 10.5% of all premature deaths and 21.8% of all deaths from preventable noncommunicable diseases in adults aged 30 to 69.
The study’s lead investigator Eduardo AF Nilson states:
To our knowledge, no study to date has estimated the potential impact of UPFs on premature deaths.”
Across all age groups and sex strata, consumption of UPFs ranged from 13% to 21% of total food intake in Brazil during the period studied.
UPFs have steadily replaced the consumption of traditional whole foods, such as rice and beans, in Brazil.
Reducing consumption of UPFs by 10% to 50% could potentially prevent approximately 5,900 to 29,300 premature deaths in Brazil each year. Based on this, hundreds of thousands of premature deaths could be prevented globally annually. And many millions more could be prevented from acquiring long-term, debiltating conditions.
Consumption of UPFs is associated with many disease outcomes, such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, some cancers and other diseases, and it represents a significant cause of preventable and premature deaths among Brazilian adults.”
Examples of UPFs are prepackaged soups, sauces, frozen pizza, ready-to-eat meals, hot dogs, sausages, sodas, ice cream, and store-bought cookies, cakes, candies and doughnuts.
And yet, due to trade deals, government support and WTO influence, transnational food retail and food processing companies continue to colonise markets around the world and push UPFs.
In Mexico, for instance, these companies have taken over food distribution channels, replacing local foods with cheap processed items, often with the direct support of the government. Free trade and investment agreements have been critical to this process and the consequences for public health have been catastrophic.
Mexico’s National Institute for Public Health released the results of a national survey of food security and nutrition in 2012. Between 1988 and 2012, the proportion of overweight women between the ages of 20 and 49 increased from 25 to 35% and the number of obese women in this age group increased from 9 to 37%. Some 29% of Mexican children between the ages of 5 and 11 were found to be overweight, as were 35% of the youngsters between 11 and 19, while one in ten school age children experienced anaemia.
The North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) led to the direct investment in food processing and a change in Mexico’s retail structure (towards supermarkets and convenience stores) as well as the emergence of global agribusiness and transnational food companies in the country.
NAFTA eliminated rules preventing foreign investors from owning more than 49% of a company. It also prohibited minimum amounts of domestic content in production and increased rights for foreign investors to retain profits and returns from initial investments.
By 1999, US companies had invested 5.3 billion dollars in Mexico’s food processing industry, a 25-fold increase in just 12 years.
US food corporations began to colonise the dominant food distribution networks of small-scale vendors, known as tiendas (corner shops). This helped spread nutritionally poor food as they allowed these corporations to sell and promote their foods to poorer populations in small towns and communities. By 2012, retail chains had displaced tiendas as Mexico’s main source of food sales.
A spoonful of deceit
Turning to Europe, more than half the population of the European Union (EU) is overweight or obese. Without effective action, this number will grow substantially by 2026.
That warning was issued in 2016 and was based on the report A Spoonful of Sugar: How the Food Lobby Fights Sugar Regulation in the EU by the research and campaign group Corporate Europe Observatory (CEO).
CEO noted that obesity rates were rising fastest among lowest socio-economic groups. That is because energy-dense foods of poor nutritional value are cheaper than more nutritious foods, such as vegetables and fruit, and relatively poor families with children purchase food primarily to satisfy their hunger.
The report argued that more people than ever before are eating processed foods as a large part of their diet. And the easiest way to make industrial, processed food cheap, long-lasting and enhance the taste is to add extra sugar as well as salt and fat to products.
In the United Kingdom, the cost of obesity was estimated at £27 billion per year in 2016, and approximately 7% of national health spending in EU member states as a whole is due to obesity in adults.
The food industry has vigorously mobilised to stop vital public health legislation in this area by pushing free trade agreements and deregulation drives, exercising undue influence over regulatory bodies, capturing scientific expertise, championing weak voluntary schemes and outmaneuvering consumer groups by spending billions on aggressive lobbying.
The leverage which food industry giants have over EU decision-making has helped the sugar lobby to see off many of the threats to its profit margins.
CEO argued that key trade associations, companies and lobby groups related to sugary food and drinks together spend an estimated €21.3 million (2016) annually to lobby the EU.
While industry-funded studies influence European Food Standards Authority decisions, Coca Cola, Nestlé and other food giants engage in corporate propaganda by sponsoring sporting events and major exercise programmes to divert attention from the impacts of their products and give the false impression that exercise and lifestyle choices are the major factors in preventing poor health.
Katharine Ainger, freelance journalist and co-author of CEO’s report, said:
Sound scientific advice is being sidelined by the billions of euros backing the sugar lobby. In its dishonesty and its disregard for people’s health, the food and drink industry rivals the tactics we’ve seen from the tobacco lobby for decades.”
ILSI industry front group
One of the best known industry front groups with global influence is what a September 2019 report in the New York Times (NYT) called a “shadowy industry group” – the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI).
The institute was founded in 1978 by Alex Malaspina, a Coca-Cola scientific and regulatory affairs leader. It started with an endowment of $22 million with the support of Coca Cola.
Since then, ILSI has been quietly infiltrating government health and nutrition bodies around the globe and has more than 17 branches that influence food safety and nutrition science in various regions.
Little more than a front group for its 400 corporate members that provide its $17 million budget, ILSI’s members include Coca-Cola, DuPont, PepsiCo, General Mills and Danone.
The NYT says ILSI has received more than $2 million from chemical companies, among them Monsanto. In 2016, a UN committee issued a ruling that glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s weedkiller Roundup, was “probably not carcinogenic,” contradicting an earlier report by the WHO’s cancer agency. The committee was led by two ILSI officials.
From India to China, whether it has involved warning labels on unhealthy packaged food or shaping anti-obesity education campaigns that stress physical activity and divert attention from the food system itself, prominent figures with close ties to the corridors of power have been co-opted to influence policy in order to boost the interests of agri-food corporations.
As far back as 2003, it was reported by The Guardian newspaper that ILSI had spread its influence across the national and global food policy arena. The report talked about undue influence exerted on specific WHO/FAO food policies dealing with dietary guidelines, pesticide use, additives, trans-fatty acids and sugar.
In January 2019, two papers by Harvard Professor Susan Greenhalgh, in the BMJ and the Journal of Public Health Policy, revealed ILSI’s influence on the Chinese government regarding issues related to obesity. And in April 2019, Corporate Accountability released a report on ILSI titled Partnership for an Unhealthy Planet.
A 2017 report in the Times of India noted that ILSI-India was being actively consulted by India’s apex policy-formulating body – Niti Aayog. ILSI-India’s board of trustees was dominated by food and beverage companies – seven of 13 members were from the industry or linked to it (Mondelez, Mars, Abbott, Ajinomoto, Hindustan Unilever and Nestle) and the treasurer was Sunil Adsule of Coca-Cola India.
In India, ILSI’s expanding influence coincides with mounting rates of obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
In 2020, US Right to Know (USRTK) referred to a study published in Public Health Nutrition that helped to further confirm ILSI as little more than an industry propaganda arm.
The study, based on documents obtained by USRTK, uncovered “a pattern of activity in which ILSI sought to exploit the credibility of scientists and academics to bolster industry positions and promote industry-devised content in its meetings, journal, and other activities.”
Gary Ruskin, executive director of USRTK, a consumer and public health group, said:
ILSI is insidious… Across the world, ILSI is central to the food industry’s product defence, to keep consumers buying the ultra-processed food, sugary beverages and other junk food that promotes obesity, type 2 diabetes and other ills.”
The study also revealed new details about which companies fund ILSI and its branches.
ILSI North America’s draft 2016 IRS form 990 shows a $317,827 contribution from PepsiCo, contributions greater than $200,000 from Mars, Coca-Cola and Mondelez and contributions greater than $100,000 from General Mills, Nestle, Kellogg, Hershey, Kraft, Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, Starbucks Coffee, Cargill, Unilever and Campbell Soup.
ILSI’s draft 2013 Internal Revenue Service form 990 shows that it received $337,000 from Coca-Cola, and more than $100,000 each from Monsanto, Syngenta, Dow AgroSciences, Pioneer Hi-Bred, Bayer Crop Science and BASF.
Global institutions, like the WTO, and governments continue to act as the adminstrative arm of industry, boosting corporate profits while destroying public health and cutting short human life.
Part of the solution lies in challenging a policy agenda that privileges global markets, highly processed food and the needs of ‘the modern food system’ – meaning the bottom line of dominant industrial food conglomerates.
It also involves protecting and strengthening local markets, short supply chains and independent small-scale enterprises, including traditional food processing concerns and small retailers.
And, of course, we need to protect and strengthen agroecological, smallholder farming that bolsters nutrient-dense diets – more family farms and healthy food instead of more disease and allopathic family doctors.

Geez, im glad the study is from Brazil and not USA, so i guess nothing to worry here!
Nobody is forced to eat junk food…FUCK OFF!!!!
Agree! But look at the nudging, grooming us for our digital, social credit score, carbon credit, ultra processed food, meters blended with our digital currency permissions.
The opposite of ‘truth’ is ‘industry’.
Una Malaspina per l’umanità e una buona spina per i globalisti …
Well, who’s surprised?….
There’s a handy link to Mon-bot showing he’s been down with this agenda for years.
So the rich investors are backing the sustainable food.
And why is the food sustainable?
Because the rich investors are backing it!
(And about to become much more rich by cutting out the farmers and relegating the world’s food supply to the care of centralised labs.)
Thus spake The Science. And note how these planet heating gases are allied to the mysterious invisible covid bug which can make people ill even if they don’t feel ill.
This is the new occultism.
I have seen my butcher making sausages. Beef offcuts and fat are minced and mixed with a cereal (barley, I think) and squeezed into casings. I would not call sausage UPF.
I am reluctant to believe what the „experts” are saying. It can be a scam to create legislation for banning certain food in order to create an artificial food crisis.
Remember when schools had a “home economics” program? Where they did learn the basics of meal preparation, including shopping, assessing meat and vegetable quality, cuts, etc?
Where do folks at present learn to cook, early on? In families that also do not know how to cook, because they did not learn? Maybe a grilled cheese and ham sandwich at max, or a Kraft cheese noodle dinner?
The problem is Peter that they don’t want to learn when it’s hip and cool to go for a “Maccy D” or a KFC because they’ve had cheap money in their pockets (Credit cards)
They’ve even got past the point where they’ve realised that they don’t even like the stuff but all of their friends do it so it must be good.
Even those unsuited to complete school have few affordable options to acquire practical skills for work. The skills are likely to be proprietary: determined by a large business.
Just have a look at all those delivery service guys on their bicycles. It is mostly young people they deliver to. A whole generation too stupid or too lazy to even make themselves a sandwich.
No discussion of food, nutrition, soil, crop growth is complete without referencing the immense harm geoengineering (i.e., “chemtrails” etc) is doing to everything.
The aluminum nano-particles are destroying the ozone layer, allowing the most harmful UV radiation to filter down to the ground, killing the microbes that give soil its value. And then the nano-particles are descending to the ground to further inflict damage upon both soil and crops.
But at least geoengineering is doing some good (not): it’s making satellite transmission easier plus, as an added benefit, it’s helping the Pentagon achieve Full Spectrum Dominance.
Bad for living beings; but great for the death cult.

Howard: Thank you for commenting.
The HEAVY rains drenching Eastern Australia of late are unprecedented…They’ve hit main food growing areas, meaning higher prices…It’s almost as if they’ve been targeted, just like the food growing areas in the USA…The disruption of food supply chains that’s going on suggests Acts of God are not to blame…
The total of operating, approved and proposed satellites in LEO is at least 441,449; their combined radiation may undermine the ionophere [Arthur Firstenberg, 2022-01]. They already interfere with atronomy. If they, rocket stages, etc. start crashing into one another in a chain reacion, all bets are off.
Since when has the policy of a university student union been national news?
Beneath the faux outrage is the real message to other student bodies to get on and do the same.
“Since when has the policy of a university student union been national news?”
Since the university student union fell into step with the Deep State manufactured “Rebellion” groups:
“climate and ecological emergencies due to emissions linked to farming.”
And there it is again. The boilerplate programme for the techno planned shift into plastic food.
This question was asked but not answered: How is an avocado shipped from South America more ecologically friendly than locally produced meat or dairy?
If we truly wanted to help the environment as well as make food accessible and stop having to worry about supply chain issues and inflation, we would be doing everything in our power to eat and buy nothing but local products. But nobody truly cares about any of that, do they? What they really seem to care about is virtue signaling.
Compared to the baseline risk of 6% for colorectal cancer, consuming highly processed food or sweetened drink increases the risk to 8%.

In middle-aged people, highly processed food increases the risk of dementia later by 43%. Risk increased when the proportion of such food exceeded 225 g (9%) per day. Those at the highest levels of risk consumed ~814 g (28%).

Let’s not discriminate ! Processed food IS processed food.
“Highly Processed” indicates “Some processed food – good. Some processed food – bad !”
British author Marcus Sedgwick has died “unexpectedly” at the age of 54. Apparently he died of “death”.
It’s a real mystery..
Good article. I’ve noticed the rise of franchised grocery stores and restaurants. Rows and rows of pop, highly processed meats and dairy. “Dairy goods”! Chips! The restaurants are as bad or worse. Expensive and bland. I don’t go to restaurants. Been 20 years or more since I darkened the doors of any fast “food” factories. I could go on….
Recalling reports that compensatory indulgences of happy meals, sinful sweets and the like increased during lockdowns leaves me wondering how much the catchall covid death count included the adverse effects of so-called comfort food. ‘Over one million cardiac arrests sold’ Micky D’s might offer truth in advertising if the marketing industry’s junk food for the mind weren’t pushing whoppers.
‘Better living through chemistry’ is the big lie of UPFs as well as so-called vaccines with all their adverse effects. Find the right mix of sugar, salt, fat and poisonous additives (the bliss factor) and you can get people to eat their own deaths as well as take junk jabs for their health.
Fast food is a fine example of how we are time’s carcass, as Marx said, in the lethal conversion of life into capital. We keep on the run and the treadmills keep speeding up and the last thing we have time for among the artifices of production and profit is nourishing body, mind or soul with natural goods brought forth from earth’s evolutionary rhythms. How much of the ecology of food is connected to the mad pace of the economy, and how can one be regulated without the other?
The Amerikan Dream was born prepackaged in TV dinners and by now ‘advanced’ industrial nations suffer epigenetic and epidemic obesity as their citizens have mutated into couch potatoes. Before much longer, if the WTO has its way, the old colonial quip about fat people in rich countries being poor and in poor countries being rich will be obsolete as we all become fatter under global capital, and all the poorer for devolving into totally processed creatures of its ‘progress’.
I ask myself – is this something the (actual)G would not print???
“Britain’s NICE recommends against NHS use of 5 COVID treatments as not cost effective”
Killing people is OK … as long as it’s “cost effective”.
Where sustenance is captured by commerce and finance, quality is sacrificed to profit.
“Public health legislation” is no solution. Sustenance needs to return to the hands of people working their own lands in and for their own communities.
Good news! My wife says the TV told her to let the over-80s eat whatever they want! Only nine more years to gum down a whole tube of Pringles. Might take up vaping again.
Are UPFs really cheaper than proper foods ?
I rarely eat UPFs apart from a sausage or two, so the last time I had a KFC it was a shock when it cost £6 for a tiny “meal” and it was crap.
Maybe cheap credit and fashion have more to do with it ?
With credit costing more and more are we going to see the crazy situation of UPF addicts committing crime to get their fix ?
Powers that be want us dead, not healthy and alive, able to think for ourselves.
Is McDonalds a health food company ?
The aim of the media is to literally drive people mad. To depress them, make them sick, make them attack each other, make them doubt their own common sense, identity, sexuality etc. And the horror of it is that, even if you see this and attempt to “deconstruct” the media, you’ll get pulled into the shit. After having spent almost three years trying to analyse it, I have got pulled in. You can’t beat it since it just keeps going. And it shovels out the same shit again and again – only more magnified and more absurd all the time. I reckon the “average punters” – or at least the smarter ones amongst them – have always known this and so they just ignore it all.
The point is that the media actually wants you to see how stupid it is. It wants you to scream at it and “argue” with it. That is another way of defeating you. None of it is meant to make sense.
another visual image for you:
That’s exactly how the truth gets crucified on a daily basis right now.
the masses are encouraged to dilute their ethnic and tribal origins and this happens all over the world, the masses are encouraged towards homosexuality and to transgender, the masses are fed drugs through their drinking water that render them docile and depletes their ability to reproduce, the masses are routinely and ritually roused toward killing each other in huge numbers, the masses pay “taxes” which supports the “program” identified above
meanwhile those pulling the strings ensure that bloodlines are kept squeaky clean and that the “intent” is focussed and adequate
heres a valid comment in visual form, fact check me then and tell me it aint so…
Given everything that’s happened over the past few thousand years, I think being designated an “animal” is a compliment…and being designated a “human” is an insult.
This still begs the question of what a ‘Jew’ really is.
So many ‘non-practising’ Jews exist today, and I’ve seen with my own eyes enough evidence to show that contempt for Gentiles is not a normal part of a modern Jew’s world view.
As usual, it’s the Old Testament fundamentalists who are the enemies of human evolution, and that sort of outlook is present in ANY religion.
We should have in mind the harsh words Jesus had for the Scribes and Pharisees.
They may have been ‘Jewish’ to the bone, as He was Himself, but their ruthlessly literal interpretations of the Scriptures were a retarding influence on what He knew to be the way forward for mankind.
In any case, the days of sectarian strife are over.
If a compassionate Gentile can take part in Jesus’s exhortation for us to “Love one another”, then any attempt to despise such a person betrays only gross misunderstanding and an utterly materialistic and false religious view.
Hm, as for the Old Testament Fundamentalists – it is a fact that orthodox jews will not take up weapons,they will research the scriptures and nothing else and they will disregard anything military. Whereas the pathological liars and warmongers especially those that have come into positions of power in the US tend to be secular jews. In fact, seeing their actions it is doubtful whether they are even capable of religious thoughts and feelings. The question is how is it possible for them attaining those positions of power. In any given country in any given century.
Yes. That is indeed the question.
Given a little thought, I don’t even know what a secular jew could possibly be, except non-jewish – just as I have never considered anyone to be a Christian who knows nothing of, and cares nothing for, Christ’s teachings.
Spiritual evolution takes time, and we’re all at different stages.
Ultimately, I’m sure that labels such as these will become meaningless.
“My Kingdom is not of this world”, is not the most popular of Jesus’s sayings, but in many ways it is the most profound.
It points to an inner relationship with the Universe, not an outer one – a very difficult concept for some, but one which can make sense of a great many apparent problems and conflicts in our modern world.
Sorry to have wandered somewhat away from the topic of junk food, by the way…
The New Testament was commissioned by the international financiers of the day. They were based in Alexandria and utilised the services of St Paul and presumably others.
The internatiional financiers of the day were undoubtedly very clever with money, but they weren’t bright enough to embrace anything with real or unique spiritual content.
An utterly materialistic mind just can’t do that.
It can’t be helped: Spirit doesn’t resonate with everybody.
So nothing has changed in 2,000 years… It’s exactly the same.
Maybe the limits to materialism will be apparent after another 2,000 years…?
“What the above tends to show is that all religion and cults (not just one) are nincompoopery. Utilized by charlatans, frauds and crazies to dominate and exploit others. One of the ways to avoid the Jim Jones of the world is to think critically, think for oneself and think how ones actions may impact upon others. One does not need religion to be ethical.”
Of course there are two debatable implications here:
a) “What the above tends to show is that all religion and cults (not just one) are nincompoopery. Utilized by charlatans, frauds and crazies to dominate and exploit others.”
The fact that everything can be utilized by charlatans, frauds and crazies to dominate and exploit others, surely doesn’t invalidate everything.
* * * * *
b) “One does not need religion to be ethical.”
Similarly, neither does one need to reject religion in order to be right.
* * * * *
And we are naturally talking about genuine personal religion, not institutionalized religion, which is another thing altogether.
To my mind, modern religion must be a personal, individual matter, or those charlatans, frauds and crazies will win the day.
It’s the natural coming together of like-minded people which keeps religion healthy and avoids cultism. Once group-think enters the picture – which it very easily does – then it becomes a corrupt vested interest.
I find the following a useful rule-of-thumb for keeping an eye on where the real threat lies, and it applies as well to politics as to religion. But that’s just my rule-of-thumb. Like everything else, it won’t resonate with everybody:
What the zomboid cult says:
” We believe this or that, so there. “
What the thinking religious individual says:
” I believe this or that, and here’s why. “
(Please don’t ask me to explain the “why” here, since I’m not writing a reference book and autobiography for anybody without being handsomely paid…)
what im trying to (eventually) illustrate is this:
over the last 3 years many of us have had to re-evaluate much of what we were programmed with in our lives.
“science”, “history”, “chemistry” and for those who fail to have seen sufficient evidence that loo rolls and silver foil can fly to the moon and back “geography” is looking a bit sus too,
Then too we have another elephant in the room, we have “religion” which can be described in many ways and has many doors….?
Now id take it youd agree with me that right now the side of “good” (i just want live my life and let others do the same, peace be with you etc) isnt….err doing so well?
Now going back to the old “science” bit and the reasonably recent acknowledgement that things are “not quite what they seem” and if we do a bit of digging we find that certain groups hold the knowledge to manipulate the “not quite what it seems”, additionally those same certain groups use this “esoteric” knowledge to hold sway and control the masses….
To the point that if allowed to go much further.. its pretty much game over and compliance will be… mandatory
We all have incredible potential, not least of which to stop this shit show in a heart beat, but to do this we need to know what we are.
My point being (eventually) is that “organised religion” excepting those that have access to the alchemical, esoteric and mystic texts are another kind of global “con job”.
The satanists jeer at the masses and are often found saying “your god isnt listening, our god is”
and the truth behind this is that if you were responsible for setting up all mainstream global religions, on the basis of confusion and deception, then all organised religion ends up worshiping/feeding THE WRONG GOD
conversion to a one world religion will be a piece of cake, given thet they have been worshiping the dark in huge numbers, all over the world for 2 millenia…
to get our heads around this we need to understand why we were “created” and for what purpose and as weve found out ad nauseum throughout history we were not all created equal…
bearded old fuckers in clouds are merely stegangraphic images for as yet un-developed (but with huge potential) hybrid “diggers”, cast adrift on the hunk of rock that we mined for minds far superior than our own….no wonder we are confused…
and the “best” bit, at this juncture it does not seem that anyone can save us from this dire situation other than ourselves, until perhaps we awaken to our genetic potential, which as many are finding out is a privelege now removed from the
(6 ?) billion that have had a “preventative medical intervention”.
ever so sightly off topic, but considering the reason that those who so dementedly and satanically pursue “the great reset” might be becuase they know the alternative thats rolled out if they fail is…. the really, really great “re-set”.
evidence seems to point out that this does happen, not just with matey and his “big boat”
There is evidence that the “big boat” episode was prompted not by “humanitys depravity” but by dint that due to influences which we struggle to understand, yet “secret schools” do understand we go through cycles of “spiritual evolution” and “devolution”, thats back to the “geography” bit..
they knew when they needed to do this and why, that is what we need to understand
Tob Shebbe Goyim Harog.
yep seems we are all in their sights
on topic, i have been looking into the “countdown” element of the capstone, some feel they have cracked the date codes, as yet im ambiguous as to which version i agree with
an old friend, who is egyptian and was tutored in archeology in cairo by the man who preserved the death mask of Tut (pretty much top of his game) still communicates regularly with those in Egypt working in archeology, when i spoke to him early 2020, he told me that the archeological community in Egypt were at the threshold of a “new understanding of the purpose of the Giza structures” and they were “aflame” with excitement…
there is little about it but search terms like “what lies beneath Giza plateau/pyramids” shows that there is far more below than previously understood and the “water” damage to the Sphynx was not from a river, the damage being salt water, not fresh…there was an expedition in the 90s (?) when some yanx bribed those guarding the access points to the subterrenean area, what they found was pretty “toxic”.
for myself it is now important that i educate myself further and really take on board that what has shaken our once “comfy” and priveledged lives is permanent until conclusion, facing that allows more intelligent choices to be made and less shock to the system as things progress.
Most would agree that the masses now dulled with gene therapy and clutching close the benevolant arms of the protective state, could not, would not, cannot wake up, only those with eyes partially or fully wide have any chance of breaking free of this construct…. i am sad to say
capstone image.. think “stargate”, they do so love to tease
Every group i’ve ever belonged too thought it was special – in some way.
I wouldnt have belonged if it thought otherwise.
What clever people They are...
Run a scare campaign that “climate change” will doom us all…
Then run a propaganda campaign to convince people food animals are contributing to “climate change”…Kill off all the cows, sheep, chooks, to “Save The Planet” – but not before little billy gates has ready to market processed ‘meat’ substitutes aka Junk Meat, (short & long-term health impacts unknown)…
Next: propagandise that because glyphosate is everywhere, is in the entire food chain, admit it is responsible for all the health problems it has been claimed to cause…
Then ban all food crops and veggie growing… And little billy gates will come to the rescue with vat cultured vegetables… Veggie paste that comes in tubes, like toothpaste…
Big Pharma smells which way the wind is blowing decides to buy up supplement companies, expecting consumers will resort to them for the vitamins lacking in the fake foods. (Not all manufactured supplements are bio-absorbable…In one end, straight out the other – money down the loo ! What great profit earners !)
Rather than using the positive word, ‘clever’, I prefer to ascribe to them the sort of low cunning typical of certain animals.
I’d say people who are actually clever pursue the solutions to mankind’s problems, rather than how to create them for personal profit.
1 high income countries such as the U S, Canada, the UK, and Australia.No. That’s a statistics propaganda op.

There’s a Stephen King* short story (can’t remember the title) in which a doctor is stranded on an empty island and out of desperation he starts amputating and eating his own body parts. That’s the ultimate globalist wet dream.
King is part of the cabal so likely a writing committee actually wrote it for him:
You forgot to mention that the doctor is addicted to cocaine, which is the main point of the story and the only way he was able to eat himself. As for King being part of the cabal, well everyone is, including you. Whether he is aware of it or not is impossible to know.
Didn’t he drink his effluvent as well? He was literally killing his island, the bastard!
The current medical treatment of diabetes 2 is a disgrace. A disease that mostly can be cured by a change in diet and most people are willing to make that change but instead the medical cartel hands out the food pyramid advice which consists of eating a high carb diet and prescribe patients drugs and say it can’t be cured, only managed. This happened to my mum. I did a bit of research, suggested she switch to a low carb diet but still enjoy most of the natural food she enjoyed before. It wasn’t a difficult change but within 3 weeks her blood sugar was within normal range. It really is a scandal.
I had a very similar experience with gallstones.
The only “treatment” they offered was removal of the gallbladder. My questions about changing diet met a brick wall. When I walked out saying I wanted to try dietary changes first, the consultant’s final words were “I’ll be seeing you again”. After three years I’ve had no repeat of the condition.
The way they were trying to rush me into an operation was what really set my whiskers twitching.
I had my gallbladder removed as the pain from episodes was intolerable but that was before I understood nutrition better and they scared me with the this can lead to cancer line. Now I realise most things can be cured through diet, exercise, rest and good company. Well done on holding out!
A good friend with gastro-intestinal issues, the “doctors” still can’t figure out if it is Crohn’s, IBS, UC, etc, went to a new gastro doc to establish her necessary “Primary Care Physician” some years ago. She has been on a whole foods diet for years now, very labor intensive, no chemicals, etc. She’s been prescribed “medications” for it, but has problems swallowing large pills and of course the meds were too expensive, and many have the SAME side effects as what they’re intended to treat, so she’s really stuck to the diet and not taken their pills.
Of course that new doctor was just another pill pusher, and told her directly to her face when trying to convince her for the need for their pills, “it does not matter what you eat.” I cannot help but relentlessly mock that and would love to ask that guy -so does that mean that I can live on nothing but ice cream and Grand Marnier? I still cannot believe that idiot actually said that, and many others who’ve heard that story are as shocked as I am. But that’s our medical establishment today in the US and really, all over the world.
Needless to say, that “doctor” did not make the cut even as my friend’s Primary Care doctor and she’s not seen him since. Her issues have not gone away, but they’ve become manageable, with diet, lots of water and some exercise. Imagine…..
When I was in my late teens and early 20s and an active alcoholic and drug addict who ate a terrible diet and lived in a squalid shithole of a council flat I had terrible eczema, and I’d had every corticosteroid cream and lotion under the sun and also injections and pills of the same thing, largely, to no avail. I was sent to see a consultant dermatologist and I asked him whether my poor diet could be having a detrimental effect on my skin condition, to which he replied “The food you eat bears no relation to the condition of your skin.” And prescribed me a 3 month course of antibiotics and an even stronger steroid cream. Alarm bells rang with me there and then, I couldn’t believe the dismissive arrogance of this supposedly intelligent and educated fellow and I knew he mmust be wrong. I was still searching for a magic bullet and for an outside force to come and save me though, so I took the pills and the potions, largely to no avail.
When I was 27 I got myself clean of alcohol and other drugs and I started eating a high quality plant and meat based diet and only drinking water and real coffee in the morning. I started boxing, cycling playing football and weightlifting and made a point of getting a lot of sunshine on as much of my skin as possible and hey presto, within a year, eczema gone, no need for pills and potions any more. Now I’m in my 40s and I regularly get told that I look 10 years younger than my actual age, I’m the same weight I was when I was 30 and I do a very active job. Nutrition is the answer. It’s in your hands to heal yourself, all the information is out there should you choose to look for it. It makes me smile when I see that other people have cottoned on to this simple concept. A really good doctor would give you the advice to do what I and you have done. Good luck finding one….
Caffeine reduces the absorption of micro-nutrients. So, reserve it for those meals where you are eating the unimportant feel-good stuff.
Congratulations on beating your addictions and getting healthier! Yes skin health is ALL about diet. When I was younger I had quite bad acne and as I got older I seemed to always have some breakouts but when I switched to a healthier more balanced diet which excludes all sugar and is fairly low carb my skin improved massively. It comes from the inside for sure.
Thanks for the info Colin. As much as I appreciate and agree with some of your solutions I personally think we need to get the scalpels out and start slicing and dicing our metastasized political sphere and all of it’s institutional and regulatory tentacles.
First off, these people need to be identified and removed in the most aggressive of ways. Much like any WEF puppet “young global leader”, they need to be shown for what they really are. Treasonous foreign agents operating against the best interests of the citizenry.
This needs to be seen for what it really is, crimes against the people, and punished accordingly.
Then, after that, we need to go after the politicians and bureaucrats. Those whom are trusted to be there to keep the corporate world at arms length from society, but have failed to do so. Their betrayal should be called out too and dealt with harshly.
The greatest traitors and criminals are those in government who approve changes. That includes legislators and judges. These people can demand explanations and justifications from anyone including so-called experts.
Excellent comment!!! Your first paragraph nails it down.
All corporate associations, including ALL Dunn&Bradstreet listed “governmental” agencies, need to be dismantled and their executive staff sent to the gallows. They are little more than economic terrorists and traitors to their respective countries. Hang the bastards, high.
Politicians working with big pharma and big food to increase their profits all around – the very definition of fascism – all while harming the citizens of all countries of the world, as well as the environment they pretend to care about, with all their big tech and massive supply chains, and at the same time calling anyone who calls them out “fascists”. The hypocrisy knows no bounds. We are fools if we don’t stop them while we still may.
“We settled for Democracy not realising it could be used against us.” (anon)…
Solution ? “First, we have to get out of the ditch” suggested Mr Don Trump…
The real dangers of the diesel shortage no one is talking about. (22.30)
Not only die-sel – also a shortage of minerals. Has anyone told Klaus that his Green Revolution is kaput?
From Simon Michaux who is an Aussie professor currently working in Finland with their thermal energy. His research is invaluable.
“Most renewable technologies also require the use of relatively exotic metals like lithium, cobalt and Rare Earth Elements. So far we have mined these elements in comparatively small quantities (compared to say copper, zinc, aluminum or iron). The planned Green Transition will need vast quantities of these metals. Much more than we have ever used before. As most of the non-fossil fuel system is yet to be constructed, it cannot be recycled.”
Both current mining production (2019) and current stated global mineral reserves (2022) cannot provide sufficient metal to manufacture only one generation of renewable technology units (EV’s, H-cells, batteries, wind turbines and solar panels).”
He confirms “the Green Revolution” is an ideological cover story…
Klaus and his ilk know there arent enough of the minerals needed for the Green Dream they’re promoting…Evs are meant as a distraction…
Rudolf Diesel died in very strange circumstances.
About half the income from petroleum comes from petrol which is suitable only for small engines. Once passenger motor vehicles are banned, there will be no demand for petrol. That could make the production of diesel not viable.
Now you can have “organ on a chip”. This will grow you a new liver, lung, etc.
This new and horrifying industry is presently unregulated. They say that soon we won’t need bodies and you can have a digital virtual twin hologram to be out in the world. The globos fantasize that they can get rid of God and become gods themselves.
Do you think they’re just a bit mad?
Mad is the only word for it.
Of course they gave up believing in any kind of god during their college years, since that was the fashion – and it still is the fashion.
So once you give up on the idea that there’s any kind of wisdom behind all those random molecules that have miraculously and coincidentally given us an inner identity capable of appreciating the most wonderful creative achievements of some of our fellow men…
…once you start imagining instead, supersitiously, that it is only a matter of time before Nature herself crouches at our feet, waiting for the latest of our instructions to the poor thing…
…once you are so far-gone that you can do all that with a straight face, then of course you will find it perfectly plausible that a human soul can live in a hologram of a hologram of a hologram of a machine…
Mad. – madder than anyone has ever been in human history.
Enjoy it, good people; we will never see madness like it again.
“Of course they gave up believing in any kind of god”.
If only – they believe in older gods. They laugh at materialists and atheists.
You may be right.
I suppose Satan qualifies as an ‘older god’…
The pompous talk of the “metaverse” is a convincing indication of insanity.
The good news is that the elite won’t need bodies either… Let’s prove them right…
Healthy food takes long time to cook and it may not be worth preparing for a single person.
A successful strategy should make soup and salads as available as chicken wings.
Nonsense. Those are weak excuses, not valid reasons. People just need to take some responsibility for themselves and their own health, stop expecting some benevolent force to swoop down from above and save us all and make our lives easier. It simply isn’t going to happen, ever. Only you can save yourself.
“Nonsense. Those are weak excuses, not valid reasons.”
In absence of moaning beans will cook faster?
So beans are the only healthy food? I’ve been a single parent working 2 jobs and still eaten healthily, now I’m married and I still eat healthy food as do my family. It’s my choice to do so, just as it’s anybody else’s choice not to.
When Gates and Schwab give us all their bugs, will that be UPF bugs and fast food bugs? Like McBugs. Or will there be a healthy option?
This is a good article telling us how the sugar merchants sell more unhealthy ‘food’ to the public and pay less or no tax to the Aussie government. And obesity is not genetic – its diet.
“As it stands, government policies favour the ultra-processed “food” and sugary drink industries (and incentivise them to produce and sell sugary consumables. It’s this policy environment that is driving a multitude of avoidable chronic diseases and deaths each year. And yet these industries deploy sophisticated framing techniques to cover their tracks, muddy the waters and divert our attention — deceitful framing techniques that protect their profits.
Industry pollutes the scientific literature on purpose so they can argue the data is inconclusive. This ultimately undermines support for any change at all. Coca-Cola has been one of the biggest culprits in the dissemination of disinformation, denying their drinks can be dangerous to our health. For years, Coca-Cola’s annual reports to the US Securities and Exchange Commission listed obesity and its health consequences as the biggest threat to their profits.
The industries counter such threats with intensive marketing and lobbying. They also fight public health campaigns with deviously misleading campaigns of their own. One such initiative is Nestlé’s “Be Body Positive with Nestlé.” The concerning trend of normalising obesity, amplified by industry, is an injustice to those who suffer from this condition and its many life-changing and life-threatening consequences. Only 0.5% of people with obesity are metabolically healthy.
No Sugar Tax
How much tax is paid by these foreign companies? Coca-Cola alone costs Australian taxpayers over one billion dollars each year in lost tax revenue. In total, these industries receive nearly $5 billion a year in subsidies. This lost tax revenue means the cost of production of their products is cheaper, effectively lowering prices – the opposite of a sugar tax.”
Ref ‘Dark PR: How Corporate Disinformation Undermines Our Health and the Environment’ by Grant Ennis
When sugar products negative health impacts came under scientific scrutiny in the USA, the sugar industry employed the disinformation tactic of sowing doubt about unfavorable research findings, a tactic that had been successfully employed for decades by the US tobacco industry.
“Doubt is our product since it is the best means of competing with “the body of fact” that exists in the mind of the general public.” Internal Memo. Tobacco Industry. 1969…
‘Compared to the tobacco companies, which knew for a fact that their wares were deadly and spent millions of dollars trying to cover-up that reality, the sugar industry had a relatively easy task.
‘With the jury still out on sugar’s health benefits, producers simply needed to make sure that the uncertainty lingered. But the goal was the same: to safeguard sales by creating a body of evidence companies could deploy to counter any unfavorable research.
‘Inconclusiveness is precisely what the sugar industry works so assiduously to maintain.’
May Hem, thanks for the Michael West link… He’s still doing good investigative journalism after being made redundant by the Sydney Morning Herald…His investigative pieces must have gotten too hot for them to publish…
West still writes some good stuff, but I was disappointed in his relative silence on covid.
Tobacco fought so long and hard to act as a protection for all these other industries. The Germans had amassed a mountain of evidence about the dangers of tobacco but it got ‘lost’ by war crimes’ prosecutors.
One of tobacco’s main arguments that US courts accepted for years was that animal tests proved nothing because humans are different. Funny how that didn’t apply to the 8 lab mice that tested the latest convid booster!
Seems the mice were euthanised because their fur lost lustre after being injected. Lack lustre fur is a sure sign of ‘covid’ ‘infection’. That’s a Scientific Fact
But, but, but….hot dogs, sausages,and ice cream?
They’re Nature’s most perfect foods!
Actually, I have gotten the sugar (mostly) out of my diet, have lost weight, feel better, etc, etc, everything claimed about it seems to be true. But the lizard brain still craves sugar. A teaspoon of honey relieves these cravings when they get overwhelming. Yeah, honey is sugar, but it’s also has bee spit, and bee spit makes everything okay. It’s SCIENCE.
Honey is bee vomit, not spit. Since bees produce honey after vomiting up flower nectar why not use flower nectar directly – without the vomit?
Honey has an average GI of 58. Fructose levels range between 30 to over 50%.
Coconut flower nectar has a low(ish) GI of 35 and has a low (harmful) fructose level compared with honey.
Kalaiyarasi et al. , Hebbar et al.  and many other researchers reported that fresh coconut sap collected from unopened inflorescences of the coconut tree is a rich source of sugar (12-15%) and also carry traces amounts of fructose, maltose and glucose etc.
Devi et al.  reported that coconut palm sugar can be an excellent alternative to regular canesugar due to its low GI and it can be used as therapeutic agents for the treatment of type II diabetes as it contains α-amylase.
Why stop there? Since plants produce nectar from water, co2, sunlight and soil, why not just drink water, breathe co2, sunbathe and eat dirt?
Aside from the GI aspect (58 isn’t so “bad” IMO), honey, I imagine, has other properties. Not to mention it tastes great!
I’ve read that natural honey is good for you and also for wounds. But once heated, the sugar changes form and does you no good. Best to eat natural honey at room temperature.
This is kind of true true. Natural honey contains enzymes that are highly beneficial to us, can be used as anti microbial wound dressing. Most honey is pasteurised, which denatures the enzymes and basically leaves you with a refined type of sugar, and as such, it is best avoided. As usual, the raw and unprocessed stuff is the good stuff, and even then, only in small quantities in the case of honey. We aren’t adapted to eat a lot of it, it’s more of a rare treat.
One can also overdo the intake of sugar through sweet fruits. Ripeness also pushes up the sugar level, e.g., in bananas.
It’s a cascade effect. Similiar to hive collapse in bees.The sum total of glyphosphates, processed foods, gm foods, synthetic mrna jabs, decline in air quality, chlorine in drinking water supplies, nerve toxins in toothpaste and have I missed anything? Ah yes, the inability of human beings to actually walk or run anywhere and the constant exposure to a variety of microwave radiations…. Are causing a total failure of immune, endocrine and other regulatory systems, necessary to keep us alive for any length of time and with any quality of life.. Humans are suffering from self inflicted hive collapse
My garden was full of bees this summer. Has anyone else noticed how quiet the MSM have gone on that one?
The beehive is used as a symbol in Freemasonry. It symbolises the Lodge – quiet on the outside and full of activity within. Just a coincidence that Bev Bevan (ELO drummer) and Jasper Carrott were “discovered” in a Birmingham store called The Beehive.
I lost three out of four active hives this year and had no honey after getting 40 kilos in 2021. Still I didn’t tell the MSM. When you live in the country there’s a lotta stuff you just have to accept …
Consuming junk food is an addiction like any other. Inglorious food with a tonne of side effects. I know because I’m an addict myself. I’ve been on and off for a while now. It’s easy to score and really doesn’t cost much money but it costs your health lots in the long run.
“Well at least it is gluten free.”
“Eating bugsz does not sound so bad now, does it?”
Please… No one is forcing uman animals to eat crap!
That is just the usual lame excuse that Irresponsible uman animals give to never assume their Personal Responsibility!
That’s the minimum!
They can BUY proper FOOD with that amount of money… and still “satisfy their hunger“!
STOP eating CRAP… If not STOP complaining about your EATING HABITS.
Damage was done with the food pyramid. It is upside down. So I’m afraid some responsibility has to be taken on by the “science” because for some people it’s just wrong. Protein, fat and a small amount of carbs from berries and vegetables. No processed crap.
What a classic idea that poor people would eat their crap food in restaurants all the time. Canned soup and frozen pasta dishes are cheap. Not McDonalds.
In addition to financial and educational depravation, there may be a lack of energy and time. Soul sucking jobs, commuting, illness, humiliation may make people compliant to the system.
All this sh•t can only work because grown-ups behave like children in a candy shop.
We simply have to learn to take responsability for our wellbeing. That’s all.
And that requires to say “no” to convenience food.
If we don’t have time or money to cook from scatch, we could, for example rebuild cantinas (like we had before) where we can get cheap and healthy food.
Once started, it should be easy to maintain. Just make it “hip”. Hello media, insta, facebook…
Well… If there is ONE thing that degenerate uman animals will never do is to take RESPONSIBILITY.
As clear evidence of this FACT just look at what billions have done in regard with the miracle mRNA toxic spew COVIDIUS jab!
People doing 2 to 3 jobs to survive have no time or money for that.
Well… the american herd of modern moron slaves only get what they VOTE for!
Your alternative update on #COVID19 for 2022-11-14. Jabs insert additional 47th artificial chromosome into human cells. Restrictions not law, they were advice (blog, gab, tweet).
It seems the Globalists’ desire to feed us bugs & replace farms with factories is just the final step in a long-term attempt to create a dwarfish, obese, low IQ underclass.
Looks to be working.
There needs to be a much wider public understanding of the nutrient density of food before anything will change. If nobody bought processed foods they would stop making them.
The consumer has a steep learning curve ahead if they want to find information on nutrient density, labels are meaningless, “organic” may be a healthier choice (lacking exposure to some chemical inputs), but it means nothing in terms of nutrient density.
I’d wager most crops, even “organic” commercial crops, do not reach the top level of the plant health pyramid…
…because most commercial practices destroy the soil biology required to achieve it, for example generally speaking you’d be looking for a Brix reading above 12, conventional farmers think a reading of ~8 is a good crop! And most crops are well below 8.
And how would one know without an intimate realationship with the grower anyway?
The Bionutrient food Association (in the USA) is trying to address this problem by making a nutrient density meter available for consumers (a handheld “spectrometer”) it’s become so popular (with growers I presume) they’re having supply problems atm, so I guess some people are interested enough to want one, but how many people are willing to spend ~$100 on a meter they can test fresh food with at the farm, or in the supermarket aisles, I’d wager not many, especially without some serious education into the nutrient density of food.
But if enough people do test their food, or growers state their results and those of other, less skilled/conventional growers/supermarket supplied crops and there’s a database of results, it could become a unique selling point for growers, and something consumers want to know.
But until the monopoly of public information highlighted in the OP is broken, I seriously doubt much of anything will change outside the niche area occupied by Regenerative Agriculture practitioners and their customers. It seems most people can’t be bothered cooking a meal from scratch, preferring the convinience of processed foods, let alone test the ingrediants for nutrient density!
It is so difficult to get people to detach from the problems of their daily lives and look at what’s really going on around them, and understand that every aspect of their lives is under assault by the rentier class of super wealthy oligarchs. Understandably, if people’s over-riding concerns are things like putting food on the table, paying rent, fueling the vehicles with expensive gas, finding ways to cut back on essentials so they can pay their healthcare insurance premiums and co-pays and cost sharing, etc., they will have little time to devote to learning about the reality of their world.
Even if they learn, they may not be able to afford to change.
Well, yes, sort of true. But the cause of all their concerns of overpriced food, gas, healthcare problems, etc. is the very thing to concentrate on, because putting a stop to the cause would reduce the problems. Oust the oligarchs, quit supporting big food, big pharma, big tech, etc., get self-sufficient, get healthy and get free.
Marks left by insects on fruit and veg suggest they are relatively safe. Soak all seeds (cereals, beans, etc.) to reduce phytates. Lighten up on germ phobia: spraying poisons in the kitchen, rushing to eat cooked food or to stow it in the fridge, etc. Bacteria pre-process food for us to some extent.
The food problems associated with health include the purposely erroneous daily recommended allowances put out by frauds. Set sodium levels too high an a bunch of people get hypertension. Set bad glucose levels, then give the people synthetic sugars their bodies can’t use, and tons of people end up on diabetic medications.
In other news of scams, the Trump-trap has filed FEC paperwork to run for president in 2024.
As with all things Trump, its likely a trap, distraction or some kind of ploy. The sheep who fall for his crap will surely rejoice, but what exactly will they be rejoicing?
The president who brought them genetic manipulation without protecting them from intellectual property rights claims?
The traitor who authorized zero liability for the perpetrators of a fraud?
A thief who handed out trillions in bailouts to his buddies while giving 330 million people who need it most a paltry $250 billion to share?
The president who locked down the country over a fake virus?
The president who sat idly by while both the Constitutional and International Human rights of his citizens were violated?
The parent of a Young Global Leader?
A man who told his supporters that he would lead their protest to the Capitol, only to not show up while his supporters were setup in an obvious trap?
The man who refused to declare Antifa a terrorist organization?
The president who refused to call out his long time business partner, George Soros?
The president who signed an EO telling the military and other agencies to prepare to disseminate a nationwide vaccine 6 months before covid, but claimed it was warp speed anyway?
The president who failed to inform his citizens that the vaccine patents he gave zero liability to cross the blood brain barrier? And then signed an EO preventing governors from speaking out against them?
The president who single-handedly destroyed the most small businesses in American history?
Who knows what the sheep will cling to, but rest assured it will be nothing but more-of-the-same at the bottom of that toilet.
Trump-trap will be used to distract, mislead and divide and I predict that he will get assistance from Tulsi Gabbard. She just took a job at Fox and she is a 2015 class Young Global Leader. That program is 5 years, so she was ready in 2020, right about the time she started getting pushed on the sheep. I’m sure she’ll play into whatever Trump-trap scams they have planned.
Anyway, if you like Trump, this is good news. If you live in reality instead of hope, then its probably annoying.
More than annoying!!!! It’s MURDER!!!!!!!!!!!
Ohhh we need hope budy. I’m sure you too. But if we need it, it’s precious.. therefore not to be put in just anyone’s hands. I’m with you on everything you said… delighted by it’s accuracy.
There is only one response to that off-subject anti-Trump rant: Joe Biden. Lol.
I’m not a Biden supporter. Off-topic is the only way to start conversations. Otherwise, needed conversations will simply be avoided.
Since your post was so long ! I didn’t bother to read it! Compres your comments and they will be read.
Good post. People will object because either they view Trump as the lesser evil (absurd) or a messianic figure who will “Make America Great Again” (even more absurd).
The sooner people realize that the entire system is corrupt, the sooner we may be able to extricate ourselves from this road to hell.
” Trump-trap will be used to distract, mislead and divide”. I do agree wisenox. I’m bored with trump and disregard anything about him, but others seem to be obsessed and the distraction continues to succeed.
I think he was chosen to be president to confuse, distract, and cause conflict. He is part of the deep state and we can expect much more about him from mainstream media as the next US elections get closer. Yawn.
Good comment but Antifa is nowhere a terrorist organisation compared to the US military. One of them has created many millions of innocent casualties while the other has not even created 1.
In a way I don’t think covid works w/out the western world being in such a horrible state of health. The obese and malnourished – w/e they say about “health at every size” – know they are in a bad way and therefore fear getting a bad cold. The powelifting gym I go to never shut down and no one wore masks – no coincidence there imo.
As a performing classical musician, I think there is also a healthy message in the fact that most of my colleagues, along with myself, have never given a concert with a mask on.
In fact, where I live, a sizeable group of us recently played all of Beethoven’s 32 piano sonatas to celebrate his 250th birthday, even if the sillydemic delayed us by two years in getting the whole job done!
I am certain Ludwig had more than enough gumption to have refused to give a concert under such zomboid conditions, and I think of him as my inspiration.
After all, what’s the use of physical health if the mind behind it is in tatters…?
The fundamental problem with food is what is not in the food coming off the farm. This was addressed in the middle of the last century in his papers by the late soil scientist, William A. Albrecht, PhD. Collections of his papers are published in book form by Acres U.S.A.
Nutritional deficiencies in food are caused by soil deficiencies and the agricultural goal of increasing yields per acre. Hybrid crops are created to produce higher yields per acre resulting in lower nutritional yields per acre. Any farmer who grows hybrids has no interest in nutrition. Organic farmers are permitted to grow hybrid crops.
Genuine organic farming says “feed the soil, not the plant”. So true.
I remember reading ‘The food factor’ by B Griggs, back in ’88. Astounding book about the history of nutrition, malnutrition and the propaganda of big business. It was about 90% right, being before the recent evidence of healthy fat, lower carbs and metabolic syndrome [tho it does have the Banting diet from victorian times].
