Whole Foods Market Caves to Monsanto

WholeFoodsMarketAfter 12 years of battling to stop Monsanto's genetically-engineered (GE) crops from contaminating the nation's organic farmland, the biggest retailers of "natural" and "organic" foods in the U.S., including Whole Foods Market (WFM), Organic Valley and Stonyfield Farm, have agreed to stop opposing mass commercialization of GE crops, like Monsanto's controversial Roundup Ready alfalfa.

In exchange for dropping their opposition, WFM has asked for "compensation" to be paid to organic farmers for "any losses related to the contamination of his crop." Under current laws, Genetically-Modified Organisms (GMOs) are not subject to any pre-market safety testing or labeling. WFM is abandoning its fight with biotech companies in part because two thirds of the products they sell are not certified organic anyway, but are really conventional, chemical-intensive and foods that may contain GMOs and that they market as "natural" despite this. Most consumers don't know the difference between "natural" and "certified organic" products. "Natural" products can come from crops and animals fed nutrients containing GMOs. "Certified Organic" products are GMO-free. WFM and their main distributor, United Natural Foods, maximize profits by selling products labeled "natural" at premium organic prices.  (A typographical error in the second sentence of this story was subsequently corrected.  We regret this minor error.)


People will do, become, or say anything for money and/or power.

"For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." 1 Timothy 6:10

Such strong words, but could not be more true IMO.

I do not believe Jesus was one for organizational, hierachy based groups that aimed to create mass delusion and control over we the people. Jesus or any master for that matter would not have been for organized religion of any type. In fact, it is probably why he was put to death, to be made an example of (don't speak up or speak out, or you'll get nailed to a cross).

It still goes on today, but there is only so much we the masses will take. The time for us to rise is now, it is happening, happens more each day, and will continue to happen into the future.

For the Christians out there, read the bible, take the 5% good, apply it to your life and trash the 95% of subconcious programming, forget the fear, forget the rules, be the best you can be, to the best of your ability, in the end that is what matters, not following a 95% man made story book written to keep you in line, in fear and in control by "authority".

Enough of the masses have awaken, it has begun and will remain as such herein.

Thank you, APG, for writing the words so many of us are thinking. Couldn't have said it better, myself.

"The bilbe you just quoted and all religions are the root of all evil."

Thank you for revisiting that old, worn-out argument. You've not changed my mind either way.

Your statement about the bible is absolutely absurd,disturbing and deeply offensive !!M
