“Are you not going to report about the new paper from Oxford about being allowed to murder innocent newborn children because they are morally irrelevant?? or is it just more of the eugenics plan with bill gates and his ultrasound device that kills sperm and his TED talk on bringing the population down through vaccines and propper healthcare, the georgia guidestones lay it out very clearly. and also funding Monsanto heavily and yes our so called GE free clean green country is selling GE Monsanto seeds to our farmers under their subsidary company Seminis seeds. As well as the go ahead for oil drilling in the beatiful oceans and fracking which destroys the land polutes our beautiful water to the point that the water itself becomes flamable. And all fast food and procesed foods contain chemicals that cause the brain to bleed leading to brain damage

Rich people more unethical, much more likely to cheat and steal, study finds

Rich people are more unethical and likely to cheat, break the law or plain behave badly towards other people, a new study has found.

Madoff interview 2011 10 27

Disgraced former financier Bernard Madoff pleaded guilty to 11 federal felonies in March 2009 and was later sentenced to 150 years in prison

 

 

<And the most troubling thing is that most often they get away with it, no questions asked>

 

It may involve upper class people cutting off other motorists, lying in a negotiation, cheating to win a prize or even stealing candy from children, according to the Canadian Press, but researchers from the universities of California and Toronto found that wealthier people are more apt to behave unethically than those who had less money.

The study contradicted the notion that poor people are more likely to act unethically out of financial necessity.

Instead, the researchers wrote the “relative independence” and “increased privacy” of the wealthy make them more likely to act unethically.

Poorer people by contrast may be less likely to cheat, because they are more dependent on their community at large.

Rich people also shared “feelings of entitlement and inattention to the consequences of one’s actions on others” that may play into their moral decisions, study authors said.

The study, whose findings were published in the Proceedings of that National Academy of Sciences, analyzed a person’s rank in society as measured by wealth, occupational prestige and education, according to ABC News.

ABC quoted the authors as saying the differences in ethical behavior could be explained, at least in part, by the upper-class participants’ more favorable attitude toward greed.

“We found that it is much more prevalent for people in the higher ranks of society to see greed and self-interest … as good pursuits,” ABC quoted Paul Piff, lead author of the study and a doctoral candidate at Berkeley, as saying. “This resonates with a lot of current events these days.”

Media reports speculated that this was a reference to the behavior of such people as disgraced ponzi scheme operator Bernie Madoff.

CNN quoted Piff as saying: “Elevated wealth status seems to make you want even more, and that increased want leads you to bend the rules or break the rules to serve your self-interest.”

Meanwhile, the Canadian Press quoted Stephane Cote, associate professor of organizational behaviour and psychology at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management, as saying:

“We found a trend that upper-class individuals — people that have the most money, the most income, the best education and the most prestigious job — have a tendency to engage in less ethical behavior.

“This doesn’t mean that every rich person will behave less ethically than any less-rich person… But we found a tendency. So if you look across people in a variety of settings, the higher-class people tend to engage in more unethical behaviour.”

Piff said the results obviously did not apply to all wealthy people, noting the philanthropic contributions of Bill Gates and Warren Buffett.

NOTE Bill gates and the gates foundation are pro depopulation, forced vaccinations, sterility, funding Monsanto and much much much more

Shocking levels of arsenic found in baby formula made with brown rice syrup

arsenic

Think baby formula with brown rice syrup is the healthier choice? Think again: infant formula made with brown rice syrup may contain 30 times more arsenic than other formulas, according to a new study from Dartmouth College.
Environmental chemist Brian P. Jackson led the team of researchers in their study of arsenic levels in 17 infant formulas. Their results are surprising: formulas made with brown rice syrup contained a staggering 20 to 30 times more arsenic than other formulas. One organic infant formula sweetened with brown rice syrup contained six times the amount of arsenic the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers safe for drinking water.
The research team also looked at arsenic levels in 29 cereal bars. Brown rice syrup and other rice products were listed in the top five ingredients of 22 of these bars – and those were the cereal bars that contained the highest arsenic levels.
While arsenic is regulated in drinking water, there are no current federal limits for arsenic in food. Because of this, high levels of arsenic can be present in foods many parents assume are safe for children, such as organic infant formulas and cereal bars. Researchers say, “There is an urgent need for regulatory limits on arsenic in food.”
Jackson adds, “In the absence of regulations for levels of arsenic in food, I would certainly advise parents who are concerned about their children’s exposure to arsenic not to feed them formula where brown rice syrup is the main ingredient.”

The trouble with brown rice syrup? Banned pesticides left high levels of arsenic in the soil

Many people consider brown rice syrup a healthy alternative to cane sugar, but brown rice syrup comes with a serious disadvantage: high levels of arsenic.
The problem is that rice used to make brown rice syrup is typically grown in regions where arsenic pesticides were heavily used before the EPA banned them in 2009. And while these pesticides are no longer used, their toxic residue is still lurking in the soil where our food is grown.
Rice appears to soak up unusually large amounts of arsenic from the soil as it grows. Much of this arsenic ends up in the brown hull, so brown rice and brown rice syrup will contain particularly high amounts of arsenic compared to products like white rice and rice starch.
Unfortunately, buying organic doesn’t solve the problem. Organic rice syrup has been found to contain very high levels of arsenic, because even organic rice absorbs arsenic already present in the soil.

Lawyer: 6 Austrians were injected with malaria

Johannes Oehlboeck

Johannes Oehlboeck – Photo by AP

February 09, 2012 — VIENNA (AP) — The number of people claiming they were injected with the parasite causing malaria at a Vienna psychiatric ward while teenagers grew to seven Thursday, with the lawyer representing six of them saying their separately given accounts are credible because they are similar.

Most — but not all — of the alleged victims were wards of Vienna foster homes in the 1960s. Lawyer Johannes Oehlboeck said one of his clients told him that her parents took her to clinic “because she was rebellious,” while the daily Kurier quoted another as saying that he was dropped off by his parents after he insisted on becoming an actor.

The allegations — and the growing number of people making them — casts renewed focus on past practices at publicly funded Viennese institutions less than half a year after municipal authorities set up an independent commission to investigate allegations of systematic rape of young girls more than five decades ago at a foster home run by the city. That probe is still ongoing.

Oehlboeck said eight people who say they were juvenile psychiatric patients at Vienna’s University Clinic in the 1960s spoke of painful or debilitating methods, including six who described the so-called “malaria treatments.”

“Blood was drawn from one child from a vein in the crook of his arm… and then this blood was injected into the affected person’s buttocks, using the same needle,” Oehlboeck said on the telephone. He said all six told him that they quickly developed a high fever which was treated on alternate days with a quinine dosed sufficiently to reduce the symptoms. He said the treatment was ended after 14 days with an injection of what he said was likely a high dose of quinine, but not before the child’s “blood was drawn and injected into the buttocks of another child.”

Oehlboeck quoted one of the alleged victims as saying “the doctor said ‘we are carrying out tests.'” He did not name his clients. But Kurier carried a large photo of another alleged patient and identified him as Peter Schleicher. He was quoted as saying that his parents brought him to the clinic for treatment on the advice of one of his teachers after he insisted on becoming an actor.

Several victims complained of recurring bouts of high fever and shakes for years after the treatment, Oehlboeck said. Such injections were an accepted method in the early 20th century to treat syphilis, with the resulting high fever killing the bacteria that caused the disease, while the malaria was kept under control by doses of quinine. Austrian physician Julius Wagner-Jauregg received the 1927 Nobel prize for Medicine for developing this treatment.

But there also were experiments with treating psychological disorders through shots of the malaria pathogen. More recently, some physicians have experimented with inducing malaria to kill the HIV virus in trials that have been skeptically received by the medical establishment.

Bernd Kuefferle, a psychiatrist at the Vienna University Clinic during the 1960s, told the Austria Press Agency that some psychiatric patients were forced to undergo such “fever cures” to keep malaria pathogens alive for possible syphilis treatment.

New York internist Louis J. Morledge, whose focus includes travel medicine, said malaria could be transmitted by the method described by Oehlboeck. As for the symptoms described years later by the alleged victims he said they could be symptoms of other illness too but “they are certainly symptomatic of malaria.”

Criticized last year for reacting too slowly to the mass-rape allegations, city officials have responded quickly to the malaria claims. Vienna Mayor Michael Haeupl said Tuesday it is unclear if anyone underwent such treatment — and if so whether they were the victims of a crime or the targets of “outmoded medical treatment.” But he said he as asked experts to report who anyone affected could be compensated.

The federal Ministry of Science — which now runs the University Clinic together with the city of Vienna, said a hotline would be set up for those claiming to be victims. “The accusations are being investigated very closely,” said ministry spokeswoman Elisabeth Grabenweger.

Bill Gates backs climate scientists lobbying for large-scale geoengineering

Other wealthy individuals have also funded a series of reports into the future use of technologies to geoengineer the climate
What is geo-engineering?Scientists criticise handling of geoengineering pilot project

A small group of leading climate scientists, financially supported by billionaires including Bill Gates, are lobbying governments and international bodies to back experiments into manipulating the climate on a global scale to avoid catastrophic climate change.

The scientists, who advocate geoengineering methods such as spraying millions of tonnes of reflective particles of sulphur dioxide 30 miles above earth, argue that a “plan B” for climate change will be needed if the UN and politicians cannot agree to making the necessary cuts in greenhouse gases, and say the US government and others should pay for a major programme of international research.

Solar geoengineering techniques are highly controversial: while some climate scientists believe they may prove a quick and relatively cheap way to slow global warming, others fear that when conducted in the upper atmosphere, they could irrevocably alter rainfall patterns and interfere with the earth’s climate.

Geoengineering is opposed by many environmentalists, who say the technology could undermine efforts to reduce emissions, and by developing countries who fear it could be used as a weapon or by rich countries to their advantage. In 2010, the UN Convention on Biological Diversity declared a moratorium on experiments in the sea and space, except for small-scale scientific studies.

Concern is now growing that the small but influential group of scientists, and their backers, may have a disproportionate effect on major decisions about geoengineering research and policy.

“We will need to protect ourselves from vested interests [and] be sure that choices are not influenced by parties who might make significant amounts of money through a choice to modify climate, especially using proprietary intellectual property,” said Jane Long, director at large for the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in the US, in a paper delivered to a recent geoengineering conference on ethics.

“The stakes are very high and scientists are not the best people to deal with the social, ethical or political issues that geoengineering raises,” said Doug Parr, chief scientist at Greenpeace. “The idea that a self-selected group should have so much influence is bizarre.”

Pressure to find a quick technological fix to climate change is growing as politicians fail to reach an agreement to significantly reduce emissions. In 2009-2010, the US government received requests for over $2bn(£1.2bn) of grants for geoengineering research, but spent around $100m.

As well as Gates, other wealthy individuals including Sir Richard Branson, tar sands magnate Murray Edwards and the co-founder of Skype, Niklas Zennström, have funded a series of official reports into future use of the technology. Branson, who has frequently called for geoengineering to combat climate change, helped fund the Royal Society’s inquiry into solar radiation management last year through his Carbon War Room charity. It is not known how much he contributed.

Professors David Keith, of Harvard University, and Ken Caldeira of Stanford, are the world’s two leading advocates of major research into geoengineering the upper atmosphere to provide earth with a reflective shield. They have so far received over $4.6m from Gates to run the Fund for Innovative Climate and Energy Research (Ficer). Nearly half Ficer’s money, which comes directly from Gates’s personal funds, has so far been used for their own research, but the rest is disbursed by them to fund the work of other advocates of large-scale interventions.

According to statements of financial interests, Keith receives an undisclosed sum from Bill Gates each year, and is the president and majority owner of the geoengineering company Carbon Engineering, in which both Gates and Edwards have major stakes – believed to be together worth over $10m.

Another Edwards company, Canadian Natural Resources, has plans to spend $25bn to turn the bitumen-bearing sand found in northern Alberta into barrels of crude oil. Caldeira says he receives $375,000 a year from Gates, holds a carbon capture patent and works for Intellectual Ventures, a private geoegineering research company part-owned by Gates and run by Nathan Myhrvold, former head of technology at Microsoft.

According to the latest Ficer accounts, the two scientists have so far given $300,000 of Gates money to part-fund three prominent reviews and assessments of geoengineering – the UK Royal Society report on Solar Radiation Management, the US Taskforce on Geoengineering and a 2009 report by Novin a science thinktank based in Santa Barbara, California. Keith and Caldeira either sat on the panels that produced the reports or contributed evidence. All three reports strongly recommended more research into solar radiation management.

The fund also gave $600,000 to Phil Rasch, chief climate scientist for the Pacific Northwest national laboratory, one of 10 research institutions funded by the US energy department.

Rasch gave evidence at the first Royal Society report on geoengineering 2009 and was a panel member on the 2011 report. He has testified to the US Congress about the need for government funding of large-scale geoengineering and, according to a financial statement he gave the Royal Society, also works for Intellectual Ventures. In addition, Caldeira and Keith gave a further $240,000 to geoengineering advocates to travel and attend workshops and meetings and $100,000 to Jay Apt, a prominent advocate of geoengineering as a last resort, and professor of engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. Apt worked with Keith and Aurora Flight Sciences, a US company that develops drone aircraft technology for the US military, to study the costs of sending 1m tonnes of sulphate particles into the upper atmosphere a year.

Analysis of the eight major national and international inquiries into geoengineering over the past three years shows that Keith and Caldeira, Rasch and Prof Granger Morgan the head of department of engineering and public policy at Carnegie Mellon University where Keith works, have sat on seven panels, including one set up by the UN. Three other strong advocates of solar radiation geoengineering, including Rasch, have sat on national inquiries part-funded by Ficer.

“There are clear conflicts of interest between many of the people involved in the debate,” said Diana Bronson, a researcher with Montreal-based geoengineering watchdog ETC.

“What is really worrying is that the same small group working on high-risk technologies that will geoengineer the planet is also trying to engineer the discussion around international rules and regulations. We cannot put the fox in charge of the chicken coop.”

“The eco-clique are lobbying for a huge injection of public funds into geoengineering research. They dominate virtually every inquiry into geoengineering. They are present in almost all of the expert deliberations. They have been the leading advisers to parliamentary and congressional inquiries and their views will, in all likelihood, dominate the deliberations of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) as it grapples for the first time with the scientific and ethical tangle that is climate engineering,” said Clive Hamilton, professor of Public Ethics at the Australian National University, in a Guardian blog.

The scientists involved reject this notion. “Even the perception that [a small group of people has] illegitimate influence [is] very unhealthy for a technology which has extreme power over the world. The concerns that a small group [is] dominating the debate are legitimate, but things are not as they were,” said Keith. “It’s changing as countries like India and China become involved. The era when my voice or that of a few was dominant is over. We need a very broad debate.”

“Every scientist has some conflict of interest, because we would all like to see more resources going to study things that we find interesting,” said Caldeira. “Do I have too much influence? I feel like I have too little. I have been calling for making CO2 emissions illegal for many years, but no one is listening to me. People who disagree with me might feel I have too much influence. The best way to reduce my influence is to have more public research funds available, so that our funds are in the noise. If the federal government played the role it should in this area, there would be no need for money from Gates.

“Regarding my own patents, I have repeatedly stated that if any patent that I am on is ever used for the purposes of altering climate, then any proceeds that accrue to me for this use will be donated to nonprofit NGOs and charities. I have no expectation or interest in developing a personal revenue stream based upon the use of these patents for climate modification.”.

Rasch added: “I don’t feel there is any conflict of interest. I don’t lobby, work with patents or intellectual property, do classified research or work with for-profit companies. The research I do on geoengineering involves computer simulations and thinking about possible consequences. The Ficer foundation that has funded my research tries to be transparent in their activities, as do I.”

TSA Help Wanted comedy animation video causes ROFL pandemic across the internet, warns CDC (satire)

A dangerous new disease known as ROFL has stricken internet users, and scientists are alarmed that it may spread through ethernet and wi-fi. The disease started with the release of the new “TSA Help Wanted” video created by the Health Ranger at NaturalNews.com, and it has since spread across Facebook, Twitter and independent websites, infecting millions.

 

 

 

 

The CDC has urged parents to have their children vaccinated against ROFL disease in order to “protect them from the internet,” which is dangerous because it allows the free flow of ideas criticizing tyrannical government. Vaccines are expected to help quell the fast-spreading pandemic by causing widespread brain damage thanks to their chemical adjuvants and aluminum content.
Bill Gates is reportedly working with Merck to develop an even more powerful ROFL vaccine that will soon be made available at CVS pharmacies in the form of Valentine’s Day cards featuring the slogan, “Nothing says LOVE better than a needle.”

Beware of “TSA Help Wanted” video – it’s contagious!

The Health Ranger’s “TSA Help Wanted” satire video portrays a TSA help wanted ad that appeals to the “pathetic losers” of America who can’t find employment anywhere else. It reveals comedic, hilarious and perverted scenes of TSA agents drooling over naked body scanner images and molesting little children — which is, of course, what they do every single day at airports across America.
Watch it now at: http://tv.naturalnews.com/v.asp?v=979D7B9F44BA6EAE0DF65B3DE6E4EE33
Given that the TSA actually placed help wanted ads on pizza boxes, this satire ad isn’t too far from the truth, explained Mike Adams, the activist creator of the satire video. “It is an established fact that TSA employees distribute child porn, steal electronics from the bags of passengers, plant fake cocaine in their luggage, sell stolen items on eBay and exhibit a kind of pathetic ego-driven tyranny that you might typically find acted out by a schoolyard bully,” said Adams. “Our satire video simply portrays these factual characteristics of TSA employees in a comedic fashion as a way of exercising free expression in criticizing a known criminal operation.”
Adams hopes that his video will encourage discussion about de-funding the TSA and eliminating the entire department from the federal government. He does not intend for the video to infect anyone else with ROFL disease, however.
“The TSA operates in total violation of the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution’s Bill of Rights,” explains Adams. “The actions taken by its employees, such as reaching into the pants and touching the genitals of travelers, are felony crimes that should be prosecuted as such.” Accordingly, the TSA remains a gang of unindicted criminals committing human rights violations crimes every single day across America, says Adams.

“TSA Help Wanted” is the latest in a series of activism videos, songs, articles and cartoons created by Mike Adams, whose comedic, activism-oriented articles are read by over four million people each month. Other activism projects include:

Adams encourages people who are fed up with TSA tyranny, vaccine-pushing quacks and fluoride-poisoning bureaucrats to join the NaturalNews Activism movement at:
www.NaturalNews.com/activism
With the help of millions of new activists, Adams says he secretly plans to spread the ROFL pandemic with yet more videos, cartoons and articles on subjects such as the FDA, DEA, USDA, LOL, OMG and of course TEOTWAWKI.

Proof that the cancer industry doesn’t want a cure – even if it’s a pharmaceutical

A safe and effective cure for cancer has been discovered with a drug that was once used for unusual metabolic problems. Yet, the cancer industry shows no interest with following up on dichloroacetate (DCA) research from University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, reported in 2007. That’s because DCA is no longer patented. (1)
That research also confirmed cancer as a metabolic malfunction, not a weird mutation of cells often explained away as a genetic issue. But the medical mafia doesn’t want you to hear about it. But it confirms what most alternative cancer therapists already know.
Since Nixon declared the “war on cancer” in the 1970s, the cancer industry has succeeded with raising money for researching very expensive chemo substances at $50,000 to $100,000 per round or more for toxic therapies that rarely work. (2)
Chemo drugs usually lead to demanding more business with drugs to ease terrible side effects (http://www.naturalnews.com/034761_cancer_drugs_toxicity_Voraxaze.html). Meanwhile, more are getting cancer and more are dying from it, mostly because of the toxic treatments.

Explaining DCA research results

Evangelos Michelakis and the Alberta University research team tested DCA on human cancer cells outside the body and in cancerous mice with profound success. DCA was once used for unusual metabolic disorders. The worst side effects, which rarely occur, include some numbness and an affected gait.
The mice were fed DCA in water, and in weeks they had remarkable tumor shrinkage. This indicates DCA can be taken orally. DCA works by restoring the cells’ mitochondria. Michelakis and his team had discovered that the mitochondria in cancer cells are not permanently damaged and irreparable. This is what mainstream medicine thinks.
With mitochondria malfunctioning, cancer cells use glucose fermentation for survival energy. This fermentation occurs when glycolysis (glucose conversion) occurs in an anaerobic cellular environment, which can be created by benign tumor masses, toxins, and low pH levels.
DCA restores mitochondria in cells to make them function properly. Another function of normal mitochondria is signaling apoptosis, or cellular self destruction. Normal cells die and become replaced constantly. But with cancer cells, the apoptosis signal is nullified, making cancer cells “immortal.” (3)
The Alberta University researchers also realized that glycolysis fermentation in cancer cells produces lactic acid. The lactic acid breaks down the collagen holding those cells together in a tumor. This allows cancer cells to easily break away from a tumor shrinking with mainstream therapies.
The researchers reasoned this is why cancer metastasizes or spreads to different parts of the body or reappears after remission from chemo.

Tragic hypocrisy

Alternative cancer therapies have little or no problem with metastatic cancer or even cancer reoccurring after remission. Most alternative cancers simply cure cancers completely.
DCA offers the cancer industry an opportunity to come up with a pharmaceutical cure that is much cheaper and safer than their current standard of care. Yet the cancer industry is ignoring this opportunity. Instead, DCA is a homeless orphan begging for research funds to avoid legal issues with off label use on cancer. (4)
Alternative cancer practitioners have always simply tried out and when they succeeded shared them with others who cared more about healing than money and power.
The medical mafia has created a matrix that demands big bucks to make big bucks for sick care instead of curing. Everyone in on the scam makes out financially. The cancer industry accuses alternative cancer therapists of quackery and taking advantage of the desperately ill for financial gain. Accusing others of your motives and crimes is called projection.
The medical/pharmaceutical complex is crony capitalism that doesn’t want a cure for cancer from anywhere.

Marketing of fast foods (and all other marketing also)

We are bombarded with advertising all day, and if thats not bad enough we often get the catchy tunes stuck in our heads and most probably even dream adverts.
Most advertising bases itself on your own unhappyness and always promises to bring you happyness, make you more atractive, make people notice you etc etc etc. It basicly makes you feel incomplete and worthless untill you buy the item being pushed upon you.
Not only this but they also even employ psychologists to better manipulate the masses into buying their products.

In short there is nothing you can’t do for yourself, you don’t need a “profesional” to do it for you, they use big words to sound like they know more but anyone can learn these words, you are not inadequate you can do anything you just have to believe in yourself!!

New Zealand (NZ) continues to be saturated by research documenting the presence of overweight and obesity in adults and children, and by research looking at the serious impacts of these conditions on individual and population health.

Fast Food Advertising – What’s Wrong WIth it?

Fast Food and QSR Advertising Are missing ONE key element…

Fast Food Advertising Leverage - Your TrafficSince the beginning, all fast food locations and QSR establishments are missing the single most powerful lever available to them: They fail to marketing optimally to the tens of thousands of people who pass the front door. Now, I didn’t say they don’t try, and I didn’t say they don’t marketing to them. I just said ‘not optimally’.
Stop and think about it: What is the biggest cost of ANY fast food location: traffic. Wait a sec, you say! No, there are so many other costs… Listen and think: When you list all of the investments you make on a monthly basis, they ALL come down to you having all of those ‘things’ (food, tables, utensils, condiments, ovens, shake machines, etc..) IN FRONT OF TRAFFIC!!
What is the ONE THING that makes any QSR location great? It’s traffic. It’s the tens of thousands of people passing the front door every 24 hours. So my question is ‘What is the best way to capitalize on THAT TRAFFIC’? In fact, I’m saying that this is the most important question you’ll ever ask. Watch the QSR Marketing video below. (You’re about to see the most effective of all fast food marketing ideas in history…)
_____________________________________________________________________________
In a discussion paper, Waikato District Health Board’s Population Health service has accused exhausting marketing gimmicks of fast foods for triggering type 2 diabetes and obesity in a large number of people.In the discussion paper entitled “Obesity, diabetes and fast food – the impact of marketing to children”, the authorities concerned looked over the issues like sedentary lifestyle and lack of physical exercise, which has triggered obesogenic environments.

The author of the paper, Nick Chester, said that the aim of the paper to make the authorities think as to how they can turn obesogenic environment into healthy environment. It has been found that the marketing firms are targeting children by exposing them to luxurious ads of soft drinks and fast food.

Previously, the advertisement firms were criticized for using internet for attracting kids. Daily intake of fast foods and energy drinks leads to higher chances or risk of developing type 2 diabetes and obesity. A survey conducted in 2006-2007 found that about 70% of the kids in the age group of 2 to 14 years consume fast food at least for once in a weak.

However, 7% of the children consume fast food frequently in a week. The figures clearly show that in the New Zealand, consumption of fast food is quite frequent. It has been informed that there are a large number of fast food chains located at places like Waikato.

Although the number of fast food chains is high in number, the promotional ads further contribute in attracting children to fast food. It is not feasible to ask fast food chain to close down the production of fast foods. But a control over the advertisement gimmicks chosen by the manufacturer can play vital role in reducing obesity cases.

Censorship

Since I started my project to take all toxins out of the food supply I have started to have comments and posts removed

https://www.facebook.com/PsychosisAgent/posts/351748124849004

I have a feeling this is all part of the new roll out of all out censorship and control of all information

“Google’s informal motto is ‘don’t be evil’, but a huge change to its Blogger service could see the search giant help oppressive governments stamp out voices of protest.

Bloggers who have relied on the popular service to organise dissent as seen during the Arab Spring could find their posts being blocked by Google itself.

The company will now block posts or blogs from being seen in a country if they their local laws, handing a victory to regimes that crack down on free speech to keep a lid on dissent.

The move has caused widespread concern – and echoes Twitter’s recent decision to block Tweets on a similar ‘per country’ basis to comply with local laws.”

It appears that they have let the posts moved off it yesterday appear there today but any new ones are hidden, I am guessing they are being held up in the server untill approved by whomever has me monitored or something

All the “facts” McDonald’s “DOES NOT” want YOU to know

What’s the connection between McDonald’s and starvation in the ‘Third World’?

There is no point in feelin guilty about eating while watching starving African children on TV. If you do send money to Band Aid, or shop at Oxfam, etc., that’s morally good but politically useless. It shifts the blame from governments and doesnothing to challenge the power of multinational corporations.

HUNGRY FOR DOLLARS

McDonald’s is one of several giant corporations with investments in vast tracts of land in poor countries, sold to them by the dollar-hungry rulers (often military) and privileged elites, evicting the small farmers that live there growing food fortheir own people.

The power of the US dollar means that in order to buy technology and manufactured goods, poor countries are trapped into producing more and more food for export to the States. Out of 40 of the world’s poorest countries, 36 export food to the USA – thewealthiest.

ECONOMIC IMPERIALISM

Some ‘Third World’ countries, where most children are undernourished, are actually exporting their staple crops as animal feed – i.e. to fatten cattle for turning into burgers in the ‘First World’. Millions of acres of the best farmland in poor contries are being used for our benefit – for tea, coffee, tobacco, etc. – while people there are starving. McDonald’s is directly involved in this economic imperialism, which keeps most black people poor and hungry while many whites grow fat.

GROSS MISUSE OF RESOURCES GRAIN is fed to cattle in South American countries to produce the meat in McDonald’s hamburgers. Cattle consume 10 times the amount of grain and soy that humans do: one calorie of beef demands ten calories of grain. Of the 145 million tons of grain and so fed to livestock, only 21 million tons of meat and by-products are used. The waste is 124 million tons per year at a value of 20 billion US dollars. It has been calculated that this sum would feed, clothe and house the world’s entire population fo one year.

 

FIFTY ACRES EVERY MINUTE EVERY year an area of rainforest the size of Britain is cut down or defoliated, and burnt. Globally, one billion people depend on water flowing from these forests, which soak up rain and release it gradually. The disaster in Ethiopia and Sudan is at leastpartly due to uncontrolled deforestation. In Amazonia – where there are now about 100,000 beef ranches – torrential rains sweep down through the treeless valleys, eroding the land and washing away the soil. The bare earth, baked by the tropical sun, becoms useless for agriculture. It has been estimated that this destruction causes at least one species of animal, plant or insect to become extinct every few hours.

Why is it wrong for McDonald’s to destroy rainforests?

    AROUND the Equator there is a lush green belt of incredibly beautiful tropical forest, untouched by human development for one hundred million years, supporting about half of all Earth’s life-forms, including some 30,000 plant species, and producing a ajor part of the planet’s crucial supply of oxygen.

PET FOOD & LITTER

  • McDonald’s and Burger King are two of the many US corporations using lethal poisons to destroy vast areas of Central American rainforest to create grazing pastures for cattle to be sent back to the States as burgers and pet food, and to provide fat-food packaging materials. (Don’t be fooled by McDonald’s saying they use recycled paper: only a tiny per cent of it is. The truth is it takes 800 square miles of forest just to keep them supplied with paper for one year. Tons of this end up litteing the cities of ‘developed’ countries.)

COLONIAL INVASION

  • Not only are McDonald’s and many other corporations contributing to a major ecological catastrophe, they are forcing the tribal peoples in the rainforests off their ancestral territories where they have lived peacefully, without damaging their envronment, for thousands of years. This is a typical example of the arrogance and viciousness of multinational companies in their endless search for more and more profit.It’s no exaggeration to say that when you bite into a Big Mac, you’re helping the McDonald’s empire to wreck this planet.

What’s so unhealthy about McDonald’s food?

      McDONALD’s try to show in their “Nutrition Guide” (which is full of impressive-looking but really quite irrelevant facts & figures) that mass-produced hamburgers, chips, colas, milkshakes, etc., are a useful and nutritious part of any diet.

What they don’t make clear is that a diet high in fat, sugar, animal products and salt (sodium), and low in fibre, vitamins and minerals – which describes an average McDonald’s meal – is linked with cancers of the breast and bowel, and heart disease. Thisis accepted medical fact, not a cranky theory. Every year in Britain, heart disease alone causes about 180,000 deaths.

FAST = JUNK

  • Even if they like eating them, most people recognise that processed burgers and synthetic chips, served up in paper and plastic containers, is junk-food. McDonald’s prefer the name “fast-food”. This is not just because it is manufactured and serve up as quickly as possible – it has to be eaten quickly too. It’s sign of the junk-quality of Big Macs that people actually hold competitions to see who can eat one in the shortest time.

PAYING FOR THE HABIT

  • Chewing is essential for good health, as it promotes the flow of digestive juices which break down the food and send nutrients into the blood. McDonald’s food is so lacking in bulk it is hardly possible to chew it. Even their own figures show thata “quarter-pounder” is 48% water. This sort of fake food encourages over-eating, and the high sugar and sodium content can make people develop a kind of addiction – a ‘craving’. That means more profit for McDonald’s, but constipation, clogged arteries andheart attacks for many customers.
GETTING THE CHEMISTRY RIGHT McDONALD’s stripey staff uniforms, flashy lighting, bright plastic decor, “Happy Hats” and muzak, are all part of the gimmicky dressing-up of low-quality food which has been designed down to the last detail to look and feel and taste exactly the sae in any outlet anywhere in the world. To achieve this artificial conformity, McDonald’s require that their “fresh lettuce leaf”, for example, is treated with twelve different chemicals just to keep it the right colour at the right crispness for th right length of time. It might as well be a bit of plastic.

How do McDonald’s deliberately exploit children?

    NEARLY all McDonald’s advertising is aimed at children. Although the Ronald McDonald ‘personality’ is not as popular as their market researchers expected (probably because it is totally unoriginal), thousands of young children now think of burgers andchips every time they see a clown with orange hair.

THE NORMALITY TRAP

  • No parent needs to be told how difficult it is to distract a child from insisting on a certain type of food or treat. Advertisements portraying McDonald’s as a happy, circus-like place where burgers and chips are provided for everybody at any hourof the day (and late at night), traps children into thinking they aren’t ‘normal’ if they don’t go there too. Appetite, necessity and – above all – money, never enter the “innocent” world of Ronald McDonald.Few children are slow to spot the gaudy red and yellow standardised frontages in shopping centres and high streets throughout the country. McDonald’s know exactly what kind of pressure this puts on people looking after children. It’s hard not to give in t this ‘convenient’ way of keeping children ‘happy’, even if you haven’t got much money and you try to avoid junk-food.

TOY FOOD

  • As if to compensate for the inadequacy of their products, McDonald’s promote the consumption of meals as a ‘fun event’. This turns the act of eating into a performance, with the ‘glamour’ of being in a McDonald’s (‘Just like it is in the ads!’) reucing the food itself to the status of a prop. Not a lot of children are interested in nutrition, and even if they were, all the gimmicks and routines with paper hats and straws and balloons hide the fact that the food they’re seduced into eating is at best mediocre, at worst poisonous – and their parnts know it’s not even cheap.
RONALD’S DIRTY SECRET ONCE told the grim story about how hamburgers are made, children are far less ready to join in Ronald McDonald’s perverse antics. With the right prompting, a child’s imagination can easily turn a clown into a bogeyman (a lot of children are very suspiciou of clowns anyway). Children love a secret, and Ronald’s is especially disgusting.

In what way are McDonald’s responsible for torture and murder?

      THE menu at McDonald’s is based on meat. They sell millions of burgers every day in 35 countries throughout the world. This means the constant slaughter, day by day, of animals born and bred solely to be turned into McDonald’s products.

Some of them – especially chickens and pigs – spend their lives in the entirely artificial conditions of huge factory farms, with no access to air or sunshine and no freedom of movement. Their deaths are bloody and barbaric.

MURDERING A BIG MAC

  • In the slaughterhouse, animals often struggle to escape. Cattle become frantic as they watch the animal before them in the killing-line being prodded, beaten, electrocuted, and knifed.A recent British government report criticised inefficient stunning methods which frequently result in animals having their throats cut while still fully conscious. McDonald’s are responsible for the deaths of countless animals by this supposedly humane mehod. We have the choice to eat meat or not. The 450 million animals killed for food in Britain every year have no choice at all. It is often said that after visiting an abattoir, people become nauseous at the thought of eating flesh. How many of us would be prpared to work in a slaughterhouse and kill the animals we eat?

 

WHAT’S YOUR POISON? MEAT is responsible for 70% of all food-poisoning incidents, with chicken and minced meat (as used in burgers) being the worst offenders. When animals are slaughtered, meat can be contaminated with gut contents, faeces and urine, leading to bacterial infetion. In an attempt to counteract infection in their animals, farmers routinely inject them with doses of antibiotics. These, in addition to growth-promoting hormone drugs and pesticide residues in their feed, build up in the animals’ tissues and can furter damage the health of people on a meat-based diet.

What’s it like working for McDonald’s?

    THERE must be a serious problem: even though 80% of McDonald’s workers are part-time, the annual staff turnover is 60% (in the USA it’s 300 %). It’s not unusual for their restaurant-workers to quit after just four or five weeks. The reasons are not had to find.

NO UNIONS ALLOWED

  • Workers in catering do badly in terms of pay and conditions. They are at work in the evenings and at weekends, doing long shifts in hot, smelly, noisy environments. Wages are low and chances of promotion minimal.To improve this through Trade Union negotiation is very difficult: there is no union specifically for these workers, and the ones they could join show little interest in the problems of part-timers (mostly women). A recent survey of workers in burger-resturants found that 80% said they needed union help over pay and conditions. Another difficulty is that the ‘kitchen trade’ has a high proportion of workers from ethnic minority groups who, with little chance of getting work elsewhere, are wary of being saced – as many have been – for attempting union organisation.

    McDonald’s have a policy of preventing unionisation by getting rid of pro-union workers. So far this has succeeded everywhere in the world except Sweden, and in Dublin after a long struggle.

TRAINED TO SWEAT

  • It’s obvious that all large chain-stores and junk-food giants depend for their fat profits on the labour of young people. McDonald’s is no exception: three-quarters of its workers are under 21. The production-line system deskills the work itself: nybody can grill a hamburger, and cleaning toilets or smiling at customers needs no training. So there is no need to employ chefs or qualified staff – just anybody prepared to work for low wages.As there is no legally-enforced minimum wage in Britain, McDonald’s can pay what they like, helping to depress wage levels in the catering trade still further. They say they are providing jobs for school-leavers and take them on regardless of sex or race.The truth is McDonald’s are only interested in recruiting cheap labour – which always means that disadvantaged groups, women and black people especially, are even more exploited by industry than they are already.
EVERYTHING MUST GOWHAT’s wrong with McDonald’s is also wrong with all the junk-food chains like Wimpy, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Wendy, etc. All of them hide their ruthless exploitation of resources, animals and people behind a facade of colourful gimmicks and ‘family fun. The food itself is much the same everywhere – only the packaging is different. The rise of these firms means less choice, not more. They are one of the worst examples of industries motivated only by profit, and geared to continual expansion.

This materialist mentality is affecting all areas of our lives, with giant conglomerates dominating the marketplace, allowing little or no room for people to create genuine choices. But alternatives do exist, and many are gathering support every day from eople rejecting big business in favour of small-scale self-organisation and co-operation.

The point is not to change McDonald’s into some sort of vegetarian organisation, but to change the whole system itself. Anything less would still be a rip-off.

 

    STOP using McDonald’s, Wimpy, etc., and tell your friends exactly why. These companies’ huge profits – and therefore power to exploit – come from people just walking in off the street. It does make a difference what individuals do. Why wait for everyoe else to wake up?

YOUR INFLUENCE COUNTS

*

    Research has shown that a large proportion of people who use fast-food places do so because they are there – not because they particularly like the food or feel hungry. This fact alone suggests that hamburgers are part of a giant con that peole would avoid if they knew what to do. Unfortunately we tend to undervalue our personal responsibility and influence. This is wrong. All change in society starts from individuals taking the time to think about the way they live and acting on their belief. Movements are ‘just ordinary people’ linking together, one by one…

      YOU might not always hear about them, but there are many groups campaigning on the issues raised here – movements to support the struggles in the ‘Third World’, to fight for the rights of indigenous peoples, to protect rainforests, to oppose the killig of animals etc.

Wherever there is oppression there is resistance: people areorganising themselves, taking courage from the activities of ordinary, concerned people from all round the world, learning new ways and finding new energy to create a better life. The apathy of others is no reason to hang around waiting for someone to tell you what to ‘do’. You need no special talents to join in your local pressure group, or start one up – existing groups will give information and advice if necessary.

        KICKING the burger habit is easy. And it’s the best way to start giving up meat altogether. Vegetarianism is no longer just a middle-class fad: last year the number of vegetarians in Britain increased b

one-third.

      Most supermarkets now stock vgetarian produce, and vegans – who eat no animal products at all – are also being catered for. In short, the ‘cranky’ vegetarian label is being chucked out, along with all the other old myths about ‘rabbit food’.
  • Why not try some vegan or vegetarian recipes, just as an experiment to start with? When asked in a survey, most vegetarians who used to eat meat said they had far more varied meals after they dropped meat from their diet. Another survey showed that peopl on a meatless diet were healthier than meat-eaters, less prone to ‘catch’ coughs and colds, and with greatly reduced risk of suffering from hernia, piles, obesity and heart disease.
    • THERE are loads of cheap, tasty and nutritious alternatives to a diet based on the decomposing flesh of dead animals: fresh fruit of all kinds, a huge variety of local & exotic vegetables, cereals, pulses, beans, rice, nuts, wholegrain foods, soya driks etc. All over the country wholefood co-operatives are springing up. Now is a really good time for change.
  • A vegan Britain would be self-sufficient on only 25% of the agricultural land presently available. Why not get together with your friends and grow your own vegetables? There are over 700,000 allotments in Britain – and countless gardens.
  • The pleasure of preparing healthy food and sharing good meals has a political importance too: it is a vital part of the process of ordinary people taking control of their lives to create a better society, instead of leaving their futures in the cynical, reedy hands of corporations like McDonald’s.
  • WHO MADE THIS LEAFLET?
  • THE LONDON GREENPEACE GROUP has existed for many years as an independent group of activists with no involvement in any particular political party. The people – not ‘members’ – who come to the weekly open meetings share a concern for the oppression in our ives and the destruction of our environment. Many opposition movements are growing in strength – ecological, anti-war, animal liberation, and anarchist-libertarian movements – and continually learning from each other. We encourage people to think and act ndependently, without leaders, to try to understand the causes of oppression and to aim for its abolition through social revolution. This begins in our own lives, now.
