Gluten Free Paleo Diet Discussed on Fox News Interview with Dr. Osborne.flv

Yay for a Doctor coming forward to discuss cross- reactive responses due to the similarity in proteins between gluten, corn, rice, quinoa, millet, potato starch, etc.  Worth the watch when an MD discusses the Paleo diet and its advantages! He mentions GMOs and the harmful impact of commercials telling us that whole grains are healthy, how importnat it is to be aware of cross-reactive foods, and that there are over 190 auto-immune disorders tied into a gluten sensitivity. As he says, when you have symptoms and no one can figure out whats wrong with you, and have all sorts of medications being thrown at you, you need to consider whether you may have food allergies. Definitely worth the 5 minutes it takes to watch this clip!

The connections between Monsanto and the FDA are very alarming, many highly influential politicians have worked for and or have tie with Monsanto. We are told that the FDA can be trusted but when you look at the facts they prove they can’t when it comes to Monsanto. Look at this: Clarence Thomas Prior to being the Supreme Court Judge who put George W. Bush in office, Clarence Thomas was Monsanto’s lawyer, Anne Veneman, Former US Secretary of Agriculture Anne Veneman was on the Board of Directors of Monsanto’s Calgene Corporation, Donald Rumsfeld Secretary of Defense was on the Board of Directors of Monsanto’s Searle pharmaceuticals, Tommy Thompson Former US Secretary of Health received $50,000 in donations from Monsanto during his winning campaign for Wisconsin’s governor and the two congressmen receiving the most donations from Monsanto during the 2000 election were Larry Combest (Former Chairman of the House Agricultural Committee) and Missouri senate candidate John Ashcroft is Attorney General.

In order for the FDA to determine if Monsanto’s growth hormones were safe or not, Monsanto was required to submit a scientific report on that topic. Margaret Miller, one of Monsanto’s researchers put the report together. Shortly before the report submission, Miller left Monsanto and was hired by the FDA. Her first job for the FDA was to determine whether or not to approve the report she wrote for Monsanto. In short, Monsanto approved its own report. Assisting Miller was another former Monsanto researcher, Susan Sechen. Deciding whether or not rBGH-derived milk should be labeled fell under the jurisdiction of another FDA official, Michael Taylor, who previously worked as a lawyer for Monsanto. 

Who is Monsanto and what does it mean to us? Over the years, I’ve heard the name Monsanto, but didn’t truly understand the impact they have. With more than 11,000 patents, they are ensuring they will maintain control over the crop market by controlling the seeds. So, the same company that brought us Roundup and Roundup resistant seeds is poised to control our food supplies and the USDA refuses to get involved.
