The Glucose Ruse to Feed You Disease, Compliments of the Grain and Pharmaceutical Industries

The Glucose Ruse to Feed You Disease

This is a matter of your health being engineered without your knowledge or consent. The engineering, in this case, is not good. Actually, it’s creating pain where none should exist. Our food supply industry may be the most important industry concerned when it comes to our health. As everyone knows, ‘you are what you eat’, so it’s vital that what you eat won’t make you sick. Unfortunately, for those who still masturbate their taste buds with their addiction to sugar, this couldn’t be further from the truth. It’s those who have fallen for this glucose ruse. Our food supply has been hijacked by the same industry that treats you for the illness their food supplies. Granted the healthcare industry is vital to our health, but I submit that it wouldn’t be as important as it is today if we paid more attention to what we eat. Because I now watch what I eat, I can change the “we” to “you”, meaning “you” have to watch what you eat. (All that means is that you still have an addiction to break, I don’t, I broke mine three years ago.) Because of this addiction, you’ve doomed yourself unwittingly to a lifetime of medications. That is unless you’re one of the .05% who shows no ill effects from glycation. I have yet to meet one of them. If you eat at a restaurant or buy groceries at a grocery store, you’re subject to this addiction. It’s in their food everywhere you look. You actually look for it because you love to eat it. You love their advertising. What’s not to love, it’s full of attractive people selling you what appears to provide health, but in all reality provides nothing but the opposite, as it’s responsible for most all pain, most all disease, all brain damage, all atherosclerosis, all diseases affiliated with inflammation, and this is just for starters.

Monsanto has politically engineered their dominance of your food supply and subsequent health by forcing as many farmers as they can to use Monsanto’s seed companies’ GMO seed to grow their crops. Monsanto has many seed companies. Their control over the seed industry is mirrored by their control over the pharmaceutical industry because they can use the seed companies to influence the profits of their drug companies. , owns 15 crop seed companies all selling GMO seed for their contracted farmers to grow. Five of these companies sell seed for wheat crops. That’s the seed that grows the wheat that’s ground into flour for your bread and crackers. Their contracted farmers have to grow Monsanto’s GMO seed at risk of facing legal action if caught growing anything else. This is how Monsanto controls what goes on your table to eat. This is also how Monsanto forces you into purchasing the Celebrex, made by GD Searle Pharmaceuticals. Searle has been part of Monsanto since 1985. The Celebrex is what your doctor prescribes for your arthritis that’s caused by the glycation set up from the grain diet you’ve been on all your life. After you get arthritis that you will inevitably get from eating their GMO grains, you’ll be begging your doctor for that prescription for the Celebrex. Then you’ll get to deal with the side effects of the Celebrex that it inevitably has and presents to the body. That’s the damage to your body from the drug side of their industry.  The damage from the crop seed side includes crops that are not only GMO seed, they are laden with Roundup, the glyphosate herbicide that works by inhibiting enzymes from doing what they supposed to do by instructing cells how to operate. Even though Monsanto claims that these enzyme inhibitors affect only targeted enzymes, the rise in cancer alone, that the nation has seen since the mid to late 80’s, has told a completely different story. The rise in these disorders is directly caused by an increase in the glycation that occurs in the blood by the high glucose laden grains this company forces their farmers to grow. That means that the food going on your table is engineered to make you need the medications that the pharmaceutical side of Monsanto’s companies sells.

 According to Wikipedia; “In December 1997 Monsanto merged with Pharmacia and Upjohn.[14] The agricultural division became a wholly owned subsidiary of the “new” Pharmacia; Monsanto’s medical research division, which included products such as Celebrex.[61]

GD Searle and Pharmacia are the other side of Monsanto’s multinational chemical companies,  that includes now,  Pfizer and Upjohn, as well. GD Searle was purchased by Monsanto in 1985 two years after Monsanto started dabbling in GMO crops.  In 1993 GD Searle file for a patent for Celebrex, its widely used arthritis drug. I’ll bet you didn’t know that it is Monsanto’s seed companies that force their contracted farmers to grow GMO seed designed to make you need their Celebrex. Is this what you thought you were buying when you bought those corn chips last time? Was this what you thought you were buying when you purchased those pretzels? Whether it was or not, that’s what you got. You also got all the rest of the damage that glycation does to the body, which includes cataracts, atherosclerosis, cancer and dementia as well. You’re also subjecting yourself to the hunger cycle, probably the worst manifestation of a carb diet. The more carbs you eat, the hungrier your get. That’s a cycle that can’t be broken if you don’t stop the fuel that feeds it. Stopping the fuel is the only way to stop the glycation. That means that it’s the only way to stop the inflammation, which means it’s the only way to stop the illness and disorder that glycation is responsible for.

This study done on glycative effects and Alzheimer’s disease was completed in 2005. Glycation of cholesterol into amyloid plaque was researched in this study. It showed that the plaque was responsible for Alzheimer’s disease. Where were the warnings then? It’s now 15 years later and millions of people have died from Alzheimer’s disease. The question I ask is why? Why weren’t we notified of this revelation 14 years ago? It’s been in the archives of PubMed since then. Why the delay? How many more must die before this news of the glycative effects of glucose, is released to the media to inform the public of this devastating news?

This study done on the effects of glucose on glycation was done in September 1985. Have you seen or heard of any part of this report prior to today? I haven’t. I had to search for it. The question I have is why wasn’t the public notified of this revelation? Were the research results suppressed so as to hide the truth from the public? I have to wonder.

About this same time, according to Wikipedia; In 1985, Monsanto acquired G. D. Searle & Company, a life sciences company focusing on pharmaceuticals, agriculture and animal health. In 1993, its Searle division filed a patent application for Celebrex,[42][43] which in 1998 became the first selective COX‑2 inhibitor to be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).[44] Celebrex became a blockbuster drug and was often mentioned as a key reason for Pfizer‘s acquisition of Monsanto’s pharmaceutical business in 2002.[45]

What wasn’t disclosed publicly was the benefit that the stockholders retained when the merger was finalized. Stockholders of Pharmacia retained 23% of their control in the new Pfizer. You wouldn’t think that would have an influence in what they do to grow their customer base to sell more drugs, would you? Regardless of what you think, it does, and they do care. Monsanto sends this industry most of their customers just from the damage their food does to those who eat it. This industry has grown to accommodate those customers, mostly with their diabetes industry and ever expanding interests in dementia. Inflammation,  cancer and atherosclerosis, just for starters.

Was it coincidence? I have to wonder. Since then Monsanto has made moves to control all of the grain industry in America, by contracting farmers to grow no other seed than their own GMO seed. This forces the farmers who do this, to spray massive amounts of herbicide on those crops. The herbicide they spray is Monsanto’s Roundup, a glyphosate herbicide that works by inhibiting the actions of enzymes. Enzymes are important proteins in the body as they’re cell signaling proteins that instruct cells how to operate. This is important because it’s that instruction that the cells need to not become glycation. Otherwise, without that enzyme, you create inflammation. Inflammation is the foundation of all modern diseases. This is why grains are slowly killing those who eat them, cutting their lives short, to the tune of 2,684 deaths every day, that can be attributed to these killing field grains. These signaling cells are cells like hormones and cytokines that affect your body’s functions. If these aren’t working because of any enzyme inhibitor floating around in your blood, it’s going to lead to glycation and disease. This is the scary part of this story, if you eat bread, crackers, corn chips or anything flour is used in (whether it’s wheat flour or corn flour), your eating this herbicide along with your bread and cornpone.

Did you have any idea that this was being done to you without your consent or knowledge? I didn’t until I did this research. Did you have time to do your research? Why not? If you couldn’t, wouldn’t you think that we need some regulation in the field? The FDA and the USDA are supposed to provide that. With Monsanto’s control of each of those agencies, how much honest regulation do you think could take place? The regulation that does take place, takes place only for the benefit of Monsanto and Pfizer, not the consumer. We end up the lab rats in  this experiment. In my opinion, this is a failed experiment and should be shut down as soon as possible.

This study was complete in September 1985, about the same time Monsanto acquired G.D. Searle Pharmaceuticals. 8 years later they filed for a patent for Celebrex, their arthritis pain killer drug. Celebrex is a Cox 2 NSAID with the following side effects and concerns, according to Searle, and I’m listing all of them;

Contraindications

NSAIDs may be used with caution by people with the following conditions:[6]

Irritable bowel syndrome[6]

  • Persons who are over age 50, and who have a family history of GI (gastrointestinal) problems[6]
  • Persons who have had past GI problems from NSAID use[6]

NSAIDs should usually be avoided by people with the following conditions:[6]

Adverse effects

The widespread use of NSAIDs has meant that the adverse effects of these drugs have become increasingly common. Use of NSAIDs increases risk of having a range of gastrointestinal(GI) problems.[16] When NSAIDs are used for pain management after surgery they cause increased risk of kidney problems.[17]

An estimated 10–20% of NSAID patients experience dyspepsia. In the 1990s high doses of prescription NSAIDs were associated with serious upper gastrointestinal adverse events, including bleeding.[18] Over the past decade, deaths associated with gastric bleeding have declined.

NSAIDs, like all drugs, may interact with other medications. For example, concurrent use of NSAIDs and quinolones may increase the risk of quinolones’ adverse central nervous system effects, including seizure.[19][20]

There is argument over the benefits and risks of NSAIDs for treating chronic musculoskeletal pain. Each drug has a benefit-risk profile [21] and balancing the risk of no treatment with the competing potential risks of various therapies is the clinician’s responsibility.

Combinational risk

If a COX-2 inhibitor is taken, a traditional NSAID (prescription or over-the-counter) should not be taken at the same time.[22][not in citation given] In addition, people on daily aspirin therapy (e.g., for reducing cardiovascular risk) must be careful if they also use other NSAIDs, as these may inhibit the cardio protective effects of aspirin.

Rofecoxib (Vioxx) was shown to produce significantly fewer gastrointestinal adverse drug reactions (ADRs) compared with naproxen.[23] This study, the VIGOR trial, raised the issue of the cardiovascular safety of the coxibs. A statistically significant increase in the incidence of myocardial infarctions was observed in patients on rofecoxib. Further data, from the APPROVe trial, showed a statistically significant relative risk of cardiovascular events of 1.97 versus placebo[24]—which caused a worldwide withdrawal of rofecoxib in October 2004.

Use of methotrexate together with NSAIDS in rheumatoid arthritis is safe, if adequate monitoring is done.[25]

Cardiovascular

NSAIDs aside from aspirin, both newer selective COX-2 inhibitors and traditional anti-inflammatories, increase the risk of myocardial infarction and stroke.[26][27] They are not recommended in those who have had a previous heart attack as they increase the risk of death and/or recurrent MI.[28]Evidence indicates that naproxen may be the least harmful out of these.[27][29]

NSAIDs aside from (low-dose) aspirin are associated with a doubled risk of heart failure in people without a history of cardiac disease.[29] In people with such a history, use of NSAIDs (aside from low-dose aspirin) was associated with a more than 10-fold increase in heart failure.[30] If this link is proven causal, researchers estimate that NSAIDs would be responsible for up to 20 percent of hospital admissions for congestive heart failure. In people with heart failure, NSAIDs increase mortality risk (hazard ratio) by approximately 1.2–1.3 for naproxen and ibuprofen, 1.7 for rofecoxib and celecoxib, and 2.1 for diclofenac.[31]

On 9 July 2015, the FDA toughened warnings of increased heart attack and stroke risk associated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID). Aspirin is an NSAID but is not affected by the new warnings.[32]

Possible erectile dysfunction risk

A 2005 Finnish study linked long term (over 3 months) use of NSAIDs with an increased risk of erectile dysfunction.[33] This study was correlational only, and depended solely on self-reports (questionnaires).

A 2011 publication [34] in the Journal of Urology received widespread publicity.[35] According to this study, men who used NSAIDs regularly were at significantly increased risk of erectile dysfunction. A link between NSAID use and erectile dysfunction still existed after controlling for several conditions. However, the study was observational and not controlled, with low original participation rate, potential participation bias, and other uncontrolled factors. The authors warned against drawing any conclusion regarding cause.[36]

Gastrointestinal

The main adverse drug reactions (ADRs) associated with NSAID use relate to direct and indirect irritation of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. NSAIDs cause a dual assault on the GI tract: the acidic molecules directly irritate the gastric mucosa, and inhibition of COX-1 and COX-2 reduces the levels of protective prostaglandins. Inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis in the GI tract causes increased gastric acid secretion, diminished bicarbonate secretion, diminished mucus secretion and diminished trophic[clarification needed] effects on epithelial mucosa.

Common gastrointestinal ADRs include:[5]

Clinical NSAID ulcers are related to the systemic effects of NSAID administration. Such damage occurs irrespective of the route of administration of the NSAID (e.g., oral, rectal, or parenteral) and can occur even in patients with achlorhydria.[38]

Ulceration risk increases with therapy duration, and with higher doses. To minimise GI ADRs, it is prudent to use the lowest effective dose for the shortest period of time—a practice that studies show is often not followed. Recent studies show that over 50% of patients who take NSAIDs have sustained some mucosal damage to their small intestine.[39]

There are also some differences in the propensity of individual agents to cause gastrointestinal ADRs. Indomethacinketoprofen and piroxicam appear to have the highest prevalence of gastric ADRs, while ibuprofen (lower doses) and diclofenac appear to have lower rates.[5]

Certain NSAIDs, such as aspirin, have been marketed in enteric-coated formulations that manufacturers claim reduce the incidence of gastrointestinal ADRs. Similarly, some believe that rectal formulations may reduce gastrointestinal ADRs. However, consistent with the systemic mechanism of such ADRs, and in clinical practice, these formulations have not demonstrated a reduced risk of GI ulceration.[5]

Commonly, gastric (but not necessarily intestinal) adverse effects can be reduced through suppressing acid production, by concomitant use of a proton pump inhibitor, e.g., omeprazoleesomeprazole; or the prostaglandin analogue misoprostol. Misoprostol is itself associated with a high incidence of gastrointestinal ADRs (diarrhea). While these techniques may be effective, they are expensive for maintenance therapy.

Inflammatory bowel disease

NSAIDs should be used with caution in individuals with inflammatory bowel disease (e.g., Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis) due to their tendency to cause gastric bleeding and form ulceration in the gastric lining. Pain relievers such as paracetamol (also known as acetaminophen) or drugs containing codeine (which slows down bowel activity) are safer medications for pain relief in IBD.[citation needed]

Renal

NSAIDs are also associated with a fairly high incidence of renal adverse drug reactions (ADRs). The mechanism of these renal ADRs is due to changes in renal haemodynamics (kidney blood flow), ordinarily mediated by prostaglandins, which are affected by NSAIDs. Prostaglandins normally cause vasodilation of the afferent arterioles of the glomeruli. This helps maintain normal glomerular perfusion and glomerular filtration rate (GFR), an indicator of renal function. This is particularly important in renal failure where the kidney is trying to maintain renal perfusion pressure by elevated angiotensin II levels. At these elevated levels, angiotensin II also constricts the afferent arteriole into the glomerulus in addition to the efferent arteriole it normally constricts. Prostaglandins serve to dilate the afferent arteriole; by blocking this prostaglandin-mediated effect, particularly in renal failure, NSAIDs cause unopposed constriction of the afferent arteriole and decreased RPF (renal perfusion pressure).

Common ADRs associated with altered renal function include:[5]

Salt (Sodium) and fluid retention

Hypertension(high blood pressure)

These agents may also cause renal impairment, especially in combination with other nephrotoxic agents. Renal failure is especially a risk if the patient is also concomitantly taking an ACE inhibitor (which removes angiotensin II’s vasoconstriction of the efferent arteriole) and a diuretic (which drops plasma volume, and thereby RPF)—the so-called “triple whammy” effect.[40]

In rarer instances NSAIDs may also cause more severe renal conditions:[5]

Interstitial nephritis

Nephrotic syndrome

Acute renal failure

Acute tubular necrosis

Renal papillary necrosis

NSAIDs in combination with excessive use of phenacetinand/or paracetamol (acetaminophen) may lead to analgesic nephropathy.[41]

Photosensitivity

Photosensitivity is a commonly overlooked adverse effect of many of the NSAIDs.[42] The 2-arylpropionic acids are the most likely to produce photosensitivity reactions, but other NSAIDs have also been implicated including piroxicamdiclofenac and benzydamine.

Benoxaprofen, since withdrawn due to its hepatotoxicity, was the most photoactive NSAID observed. The mechanism of photosensitivity, responsible for the high photoactivity of the 2-arylpropionic acids, is the ready decarboxylation of the carboxylic acid moiety. The specific absorbance characteristics of the different chromophoric 2-aryl substituents, affects the decarboxylation mechanism. While ibuprofen has weak absorption, it has been reported as a weak photosensitising agent.[citation needed]

During pregnancy

NSAIDs are not recommended during pregnancy, particularly during the third trimester. While NSAIDs as a class are not direct teratogens, they may cause premature closure of the fetal ductus arteriosus and renal ADRs in the fetus. Additionally, they are linked with premature birth[43] and miscarriage.[44][45] Aspirin, however, is used together with heparin in pregnant women with antiphospholipid antibodies.[46] Additionally, Indomethacin is used in pregnancy to treat polyhydramnios by reducing fetal urine production via inhibiting fetal renal blood flow.

In contrast, paracetamol (acetaminophen) is regarded as being safe and well-tolerated during pregnancy, but Leffers et al. released a study in 2010 indicating that there may be associated male infertility in the unborn.[47][48] Doses should be taken as prescribed, due to risk of hepatotoxicity with overdoses.[49]

In France, the country’s health agency contraindicates the use of NSAIDs, including aspirin, after the sixth month of pregnancy.[50]

Allergy/allergy-like hypersensitivity reactions

A variety of allergic or allergic-like NSAID hypersensitivity reactions follow the ingestion of NSAIDs. These hypersensitivity reactions differ from the other adverse reactions listed here which are toxicity reactions, i.e. unwanted reactions that result from the pharmacological action of a drug, are dose-related, and can occur in any treated individual; hypersensitivity reactions are idiosyncratic reactions to a drug.[51] Some NSAID hypersensitivity reactions are truly allergic in origin: 1) repetitive IgE-mediated urticarial skin eruptions, angioedema, and anaphylaxis following immediately to hours after ingesting one structural type of NSAID but not after ingesting structurally unrelated NSAIDs; and 2)Comparatively mild to moderately severe T cell-mediated delayed onset (usually more than 24 hour), skin reactions such as maculopapular rashfixed drug eruptionsphotosensitivity reactions, delayed urticaria, and contact dermatitis; or 3) far more severe and potentially life-threatening t-cell mediated delayed systemic reactions such as the DRESS syndromeacute generalized exanthematous pustulosis, the Stevens–Johnson syndrome, and toxic epidermal necrolysis. Other NSAID hypersensitivity reactions are allergy-like symptoms but do not involve true allergic mechanisms; rather, they appear due to the ability of NSAIDs to alter the metabolism of arachidonic acid in favor of forming metabolites that promote allergic symptoms. Afflicted individuals may be abnormally sensitive to these provocative metabolites and/or overproduce them and typically are susceptible to a wide range of structurally dissimilar NSAIDs, particularly those that inhibit COX1. Symptoms, which develop immediately to hours after ingesting any of various NSAIDs that inhibit COX-1, are: 1)exacerbations of asthmatic and rhinitis (see aspirin-induced asthma) symptoms in individuals with a history of asthma or rhinitis and 2) exacerbation or first-time development of wheals and/or angioedema in individuals with or without a history of chronic urticarial lesions or angioedema.[15]

Contraindications

NSAIDs may be used with caution by people with the following conditions:[6]

Irritable bowel syndrome[6]

Persons who are over age 50, and who have a family history of GI (gastrointestinal) problems[6]

Persons who have had past GI problems from NSAID use[6]

NSAIDs should usually be avoided by people with the following conditions:[6]

Peptic ulceror stomach bleeding[6]

Additionally, they are linked with premature birth[43] and miscarriage.[44][45] Aspirin, however, is used together with heparin in pregnant women with antiphospholipid antibodies.[46] Additionally, Indomethacin is used in pregnancy to treat polyhydramnios by reducing fetal urine production via inhibiting fetal renal blood flow.

In contrast, paracetamol (acetaminophen) is regarded as being safe and well-tolerated during pregnancy, but Leffers et al. released a study in 2010 indicating that there may be associated male infertility in the unborn.[47][48] Doses should be taken as prescribed, due to risk of hepatotoxicity with overdoses.[49]

In France, the country’s health agency contraindicates the use of NSAIDs, including aspirin, after the sixth month of pregnancy.[50]

Allergy/allergy-like hypersensitivity reactions

A variety of allergic or allergic-like NSAID hypersensitivity reactions follow the ingestion of NSAIDs. These hypersensitivity reactions differ from the other adverse reactions listed here which are toxicity reactions, i.e. unwanted reactions that result from the pharmacological action of a drug, are dose-related, and can occur in any treated individual; hypersensitivity reactions are idiosyncratic reactions to a drug.[51] Some NSAID hypersensitivity reactions are truly allergic in origin: 1) repetitive IgE-mediated urticarial skin eruptions, angioedema, and anaphylaxis following immediately to hours after ingesting one structural type of NSAID but not after ingesting structurally unrelated NSAIDs; and 2)Comparatively mild to moderately severe T cell-mediated delayed onset (usually more than 24 hour), skin reactions such as maculopapular rashfixed drug eruptionsphotosensitivity reactions, delayed urticaria, and contact dermatitis; or 3) far more severe and potentially life-threatening t-cell mediated delayed systemic reactions such as the DRESS syndromeacute generalized exanthematous pustulosis, the Stevens–Johnson syndrome, and toxic epidermal necrolysis. Other NSAID hypersensitivity reactions are allergy-like symptoms but do not involve true allergic mechanisms; rather, they appear due to the ability of NSAIDs to alter the metabolism of arachidonic acid in favor of forming metabolites that promote allergic symptoms. Afflicted individuals may be abnormally sensitive to these provocative metabolites and/or overproduce them and typically are susceptible to a wide range of structurally dissimilar NSAIDs, particularly those that inhibit COX1. Symptoms, which develop immediately to hours after ingesting any of various NSAIDs that inhibit COX-1, are: 1)exacerbations of asthmatic and rhinitis (see aspirin-induced asthma) symptoms in individuals with a history of asthma or rhinitis and 2) exacerbation or first-time development of wheals and/or angioedema in individuals with or without a history of chronic urticarial lesions or angioedema.[15]

Other

Common adverse drug reactions (ADR), other than listed above, include: raised liver enzymesheadachedizziness.[5]Uncommon ADRs include: hyperkalaemia, confusion, bronchospasm, rash.[5] Rapid and severe swelling of the face and/or body. Ibuprofen may also rarely cause irritable bowel syndrome symptoms. NSAIDs are also implicated in some cases of Stevens–Johnson syndrome.

Most NSAIDs penetrate poorly into the central nervous system(CNS). However, the COX enzymes are expressed constitutively in some areas of the CNS, meaning that even limited penetration may cause adverse effects such as somnolence and dizziness.

In very rare cases, ibuprofen can cause aseptic meningitis.[52]

As with other drugs, allergies to NSAIDs might exist. While many allergies are specific to one NSAID, up to 1 in 5 people may have unpredictable cross-reactive allergic responses to other NSAIDs as well.[53]

Drug interactions

NSAIDs reduce renal blood flow and thereby decrease the efficacy of diuretics, and inhibit the elimination of lithium and methotrexate.[54]

NSAIDs cause hypocoagulability, which may be serious when combined with other drugs that also decrease blood clotting, such as warfarin.[54]

NSAIDs may aggravate hypertension (high blood pressure) and thereby antagonize the effect of antihypertensives,[54] such as ACE Inhibitors.[55]

NSAIDs may interfere and reduce efficiency of SSRIantidepressants.[56][57]

Various widely used nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) enhance endocannabinoid signaling by blocking the anandamide-degrading membrane enzyme fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH).[58]

How’s that for a warning label?  Did it have enough side effects for you? Think you might need more meds after taking this one? That label was 4094 words long. How many of those do you read? How do you know what you’re doing to your body if you don’t know what you’re putting into it? Do you think it coincidence that Monsanto started their GMO seed about the same time that glycation started being researched? Since much of this kind of research is funded by the industry it affects, I wouldn’t doubt that Monsanto had a hand in this research. This would allow them to immediately file these studies on glycation so that doctors and other scientists couldn’t find them to review. Yet each and every one of these 17,000+ studies have been vetted and examined by the NIH and PubMed. What I want to know is, why weren’t warnings about the glycative affects of glucose revealed at that time? Did Monsanto have anything to do with it?

The above list is the warning label for the adverse effects of Celebrex. Do you take Celebrex? Have you read the above warnings? Use of this drug can only lead to the use of more and more drugs. What do you think that would do for the profits for Monsanto? Do you still think this is coincidence? From renal failure, to the increased risk of myocardial infarction and stroke,[26][27] this drug brings on more drug use, simply so people can get away from their pain, pain caused by consumption of Monsanto’s grains. To me this is completely an unsustainable cycle. It’s a cycle of death and disease, leaving only, people in pain. Where is the sense in keeping this addiction?

Celebrex isn’t the only drug that leads to this interdependent drug abuse orchestrated by Monsanto, Pfizer, Bayer and Syngenta. There is a profitable reason that this cycle continues. Boatloads of investors depend on it. Too bad they don’t know what it’s doing to the society that they have to life in and with.

I propose that we tell Monsanto how we feel about this, not with our voices, but with our mouths in what we eat. Quit eating grains. They’re responsible for nearly all the pain you experience (with the exception of physical injuries).Grains and the glycation they bring, bring also all inflammation that influences all diseases. Stop buying bread, crackers, cookies, anything that flour is used in, stop using it, forever. That’s the only way you can start to free yourself from the addiction. You have to stop buying their junk food. Their junk food is making you sick. It’s making you sicker by the day. Stop it, you have the power to stop it and by stopping it, it gives you power, far more power than what you ever could have imagined you would have.

According to the BJM (British Medical Journal) on Cox 2 inhibitors such as Celebrex,  Selective COX 2 inhibitors are associated with a moderate increase in the risk of vascular events, as are high dose regimens of ibuprofen and diclofenac, but high dose naproxen is not associated with such an excess. How often do you need to take an Advil for your headache? Were you aware of what that painkiller does to your kidneys and liver or how much it increased your odds of having a heart attack? Why weren’t you made aware of that when it was sold to you? Maybe it was. Every drug commercial is primarily a dissertation of the adverse effects and precautions and contraindications each drug has. They all have to include this in all advertising. You’d think that that would dissuade anyone from buying into what has turned out to be nothing more than a perception of health. What drug use leads to is really not relief but continued drug use. It’s called ongoing treatment. Every hospital takes part in it. This is the effect of a society on carbohydrates….a society on drugs.

In all, there were 11,833 studies on PubMed, on the effects of glucose glycating proteins, hemoglobin, and cholesterol dating back to March, 1984. {There were 17628 studies done on PMC.) Incidentally, that was one month after I was released from the hospital after spending a month in a coma and suffering two strokes while comatose. I could have never come back this far without Dr Perlmutter’s help and advice that it was the AGEs that were hindering my recovery. Again, I have to thank you, Dr Perlmutter.

With having the evidence for over 30 years, why hasn’t the public been told about glycation or the AGEs they create prior to Dr Perlmutter’s book, Grain Brain? It’s those AGEs that are at the root of all modern diseases. If this was uncovered 30+ years ago, why have we just found out about it from the bestselling books from two doctors? Was someone trying to hide something? My guess is yes.

This is Monsanto’s path to power and freedom. Their freedom is to wreak whatever havoc they can on your health by masturbating your taste buds with their glucose laden products, so you’ll be buying their pharmaceuticals in the near future. By near, I mean, it only takes a couple days before you’re indebted (addicted). If you want true power and freedom, you can have it in two weeks. That’s how long it takes to break the addiction. Or you can do it with a fast in 3 days.

USDA’s Encouragement of Current Health Crisis

USDA’s Encouragement of Current Health Crisis

With the same co-mingling of execs and offices of the USDA and Monsanto, as between the FDA and Monsanto, Monsanto has set itself up to be producer and regulator in full control over all of the food that we are forced to put on our tables. That is if you’re forced to eat at a restaurant or buy food at a grocery store. If you’re one of those people, your food is more than likely, a product of Monsanto. It’s also a product of Monsanto’s chemicals, chiefly their herbicide Roundup, a glyphosate herbicide that inhibits how enzymes work in the environment as well as your body.

That wouldn’t be so bad if Monsanto didn’t force all farmers to grow their crop seed each and every year.  That gives them full control over every muffin you sink your teeth into, even those bran muffins, the ones that are supposed to be so healthy.

What Monsanto knows that they’re not telling the USDA, is that the corn, wheat and soybeans that their farmers grow for us are at the root of most all glycation that occurs in the body. What they’re afraid of the USDA knowing, is that this glycation is at the root of all modern diseases, from atherosclerosis to hypertension, from arthritis to IBS or irritable bowel syndrome, to dementia including Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. All of these diseases and disorders are treated by the drug industry that Monsanto owned as well. That’s what’s scary…very scary. The company that’s responsible for your food is the same company that treats you for the ailments their food brings. To me that’s criminal. Now, Bayer wants to buy out Monsanto. What do you think that will do to your food supply? Bayer is a German company, you know.

Monsanto doesn’t want either the USDA or the FDA to be too aware of what their food does, yet all of the studies mentioned above are available through PubMed. If I have access to these studies, I know they do as well. What I don’t know is what do they refuse to look at them? They only have to look at a few. I found two or three damning studies on the first page of search returns for the term, glycation. Glycation has a nasty tendency to muck up everything in the body that blood affects. Monsanto doesn’t want the USDA or the FDA to realize this.  Their practice of striving for total control over our food source drives the profits of their crop seed companies, (of which they’re dozens). Having that control over our food gives them control over our drug use, as it’s their food that makes us sick. That makes us require their medications to treat the disease their food gives those who eat it.

They’ve tried denying that their food is as dangerous as it is by publishing their own research reports showing different results that “prove” their food is healthy when it’s not. It’s obvious that they don’t want this information known by either the USDA or the FDA. Fortunately for Monsanto, they already have they own retired execs running the FDA and the USDA. Apparently, it’s not in their best interest to make this information known to the public. I’m sure they fear the consequences of their actions, for producing a food this dangerous. I would be if I were them.

With all the agencies the USDA has control over, it’s no wonder that they can’t see that the food they recommend we eat, has had more studies done on the glycation of it than any other food. We’ve learned that glycation is the real poisoning of America, and with glycation being involved in every modern disease known to man (simply because of the glycation is creates), glycation is something that our food industry should be working to stem as it’s this glycation that’s at the root of all “modern” diseases.

FYI fact: There were 50,000 food safety inspections in 1972. That was reduced to just over 9,000 in 2008.

If there were only 9000 in 2008, reduced from 50,000 in 1972, when the threat level was much lower, the FDA is only succeeding at failing us on an unprecedented basis. I’m sure this is due to funding cutbacks from the government but I’m also sure it involves something related to departmental offices being run by corporate management brought in from corporations they’re supposed to regulate, proving once again that money talks and (unfortunately) the bottom line is what wins here and the bottom line is greed. If the USDA and the FDA can allow a food this dangerous through its monitoring, I’m afraid to even think about what else has snuck through?  The beef industry has already displayed their contempt for regulation through the mass production of beef that their industry is responsible for, especially in the last 30 years. (Including that beef that’s imported from Paraguay, the most GMO soy loaded feed made for feedlots.) That’s a whole other story about how this industry is ruining the lives of our South American neighbor by poisoning their crops and the lives of their farmers. This is just so you can have cheap beef.

According to their Website, USDA.gov their agencies and offices include the following (I’m listing all of them so you’ll know the enormity of this agency). It has to be enormous, 19 agencies and 17 offices, all designed to protect you. Your health is at stake and a majority of this Departments’ agencies and offices are failing to keep your food safe for consumption.

AGENCIES:

I have to wonder if they check the quality and safety of the grain they’re approving for consumption, whether it’s for livestock feed or human consumption. Are they aware that what they’re approving is contaminated? I’m curious as to how they grade this substandard grain that’s putting so many people in the hospital? Evidently they not detecting the Roundup that’s it’s laden with.

Agricultural Research Service (ARS)

 

ARS is USDA’s principal in-house research agency. ARS leads America towards a better future through agricultural research and information.

(ARS) works to ensure that Americans have reliable, adequate supplies of high-quality food and other agricultural products.

The question I’d like to ask this department is how much research do you pay attention to when you recommend what food to eat. Does your research cover the effects of grains after they’ve been consumed? They claim to be interested in nutrition. Are they? Or are they interested in their own bottom line with their stock options with Monsanto?

Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS)

APHIS provides leadership in ensuring the health and care of animals and plants. The agency improves agricultural productivity and competitiveness and contributes to the national economy and the public health.

(APHIS) is responsible for protecting and promoting U.S. agricultural health, administering the Animal Welfare Act, and carrying out wildlife damage management activities.

These are the offices that are supposed to ensure that the food you eat on a daily basis, no matter where it comes from or where you buy it (grocery store or restaurant), is going to keep you healthy. Have you ever considered the value of their work or the quality of the food they approve for your table? With the high rates of Atherosclerosis, cancer, inflammatory diseases and dementia, it appears that they are failing on a massive scale.

(Unless you were looking at it from a corporate point of view where this is an investors dream, this is a consumer’s nightmare.) Regardless of how unscrupulous this is, it’s going to continue to happen as long as this agency recommends the consumption of these foods.

Myplate.gov, which is administered by the CNPP, has replaced the food pyramid for our dietary guidelines. Myplate.gov is now our dietary guidelines and it still insists that grains remain a part of our diet. I’ve asked them about this and have received one reply from someone who didn’t even know what glycation is or what it is responsible for. I’m still waiting for my reply for that and another email I’ve not so recently sent them.

 

 

Economic Research Service (ERS)

ERS is USDA’s principal social science research agency. Each year, ERS communicates research results and socioeconomic indicators via briefings, analyses for policymakers and their staffs, market analysis updates, and major reports. (ERS) provides economic research and information to inform public and private decision making on economic and policy issues related to agriculture, food, natural resources, and rural America. Through a broad range of products, ERS research provides not only facts, but also expert economic analysis of many critical issues facing farmers, agribusiness, consumers, and policymakers. ERS expertise helps these stakeholders conduct business, formulate policy, or just learn about agriculture, food, natural resources, and rural America.

These are the offices regulate the safety of our food. I wonder if they are aware of the dangers of grains in the food supply. One would think that they are, but with 109 people dying every hour, I have to wonder.

 

Farm Service Agency (FSA)

The Farm Service Agency implements agricultural policy, administers credit and loan programs, and manages conservation, commodity, disaster and farm marketing programs through a national network of offices. (FSA) administers farm commodity, crop insurance, credit, environmental, conservation, and emergency assistance programs for farmers and ranchers.

Programs and service highlights:

Farm Loan Programs

Disaster Assistance

Price Support

Conservation Programs

Commodity Procurement

This is the agency that watches over the farmer and their needs and concerns. Their interest doesn’t concern the safety of the food we eat or how nutritious it is. They’re simply concerned about the farmer’s ability to grow it. They offer the assistance programs that help fund the industry.

 

Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) 

 

FNS increases food security and reduces hunger in partnership with cooperating organizations by providing children and low-income people access to food, a healthy diet, and nutrition education in a manner that supports American agriculture and inspires public confidence. (FNS) administers the food and nutrition assistance programs in the U.S. Department of Agriculture. FNS provides children and needy families with better access to food and a more healthful diet through its programs and nutrition education efforts.

Programs and service highlights:

Nutrition Education

 

This is the agency that makes sure the disadvantaged have an adequate food supply. One of their major concerns is to distribute the grains that are used in our food supply to those who don’t have the ability to purchase their own. This ensures that everyone who lives in this disadvantaged lifestyle doesn’t get the proper nutrition they need to sustain a healthy living and in turn, makes them dependant on the pharmaceutical industry for their future health. Don’t forget that pharmaceuticals only lead to more and ultimately more pharmaceuticals. This is the never-ending cycle of dependence that this industry wants to keep the public in. This cycle is at the government expense though, and that means that we, the taxpayer get to foot the bill.

It’s too bad that they don’t realize to conquer hunger you must first conquer the hunger cycle. If the USDA read any of the reports in the PubMed or PMC archives, they’d know that it’s the grains and sugar in the diet that create hunger cycle more than anything else. If you were on a ketogenic diet, you could see the logic in this statement, to stop hunger you have to stop the hunger cycle.

This is where their logic is flawed; they think that feeding hungry people grains to fill their bellies will take care of the hunger. It won’t, it will only make them hungrier; it’s the law of carbohydrate consumption, it a continuous hunger cycle that you’re really condemning them to.  You’re also condemning them to a lifetime of medication need.

 

Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS)

FSIS enhances public health and well-being by protecting the public from foodborne illness and ensuring that the nation’s meat, poultry and egg products are safe, wholesome, and correctly packaged. (FSIS) is the public health agency in the U.S. Department of Agriculture responsible for ensuring that the nation’s commercial supply of meat, poultry, and egg products is safe, wholesome, and correctly labeled and packaged, as required by the Federal Meat Inspection Act, the Poultry Products Inspection Act, and the Egg Products Inspection Act.

If this agency had anything to do with the production of sugar and grains, I’d be in contact with them. But they don’t.

It appears that this following agency ensures that the poison we grow in the US makes its way around the world to infect as many people as possible.

 

Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS)

FAS works to improve foreign market access for U.S. products. This USDA agency operates programs designed to build new markets and improve the competitive position of U.S. agriculture in the global marketplace. (FAS) is responsible for collecting, analyzing, and disseminating information about global supply and demand, trade trends, and market opportunities. FAS seeks improved market access for U.S. products; administers export financing and market development programs; provides export services; carries out food aid and market-related technical assistance programs; and provides linkages to world resources and international organizations.

This may be done to ensure the viability of the pharmaceutical industry, as all of those grains foods can only lead to more pharmaceutical needs. If you can spread this problem around the world, what do you think that would do for your profit margin if you’re a pharmaceutical company? (Evidently, Monsanto thinks the same way.) Maybe that’s why we shouldn’t allow anyone with corporate ties in any way, to work in any of our regulatory agencies. That would mean that government employees couldn’t own any corporate stock. I wonder how many do today. Do you think that could constitute any conflicts of interest?

 

Forest Service (FS)

FS sustains the health, diversity, and productivity of the Nation’s forests and grasslands to meet the needs of present and future generations. (FS) administers programs for applying sound conservation and utilization practices to natural resources of the national forests and national grasslands, for promoting these practices on all forest lands through cooperation with states and private landowners, and for carrying out extensive forest and range research.

I doubt this agency even knows what they’re approving when they approve this grain for consumption. If they did, they wouldn’t allow this to slip right past their noses without smelling anything rotten?

 

National Agricultural Library (NAL)

NAL ensures and enhances access to agricultural information for a better quality of life.

One would think with all the departments in this agency, at least one would understand the dangers of grains. It may not be a problem of whether or not anyone knows about it, it may be a problem of anybody caring enough to do anything about it.

 

National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS)

NASS serves the basic agricultural and rural data needs of the country by providing objective, important and accurate statistical information and services to farmers, ranchers, agribusinesses and public officials. This data is vital to monitoring the ever-changing agricultural sector and carrying out farm policy. (NASS) is responsible for conducting monthly and annual surveys and preparing official USDA data and estimates of production, supply, prices, and other information necessary to maintain orderly agricultural operations.

I wonder if any of their statistics show the impact that this food has had on our society as a whole, in the way it’s influenced the health and medical industries with the boom of business it’s created for the pharmaceutical industry. Does the government understand that the more they support the industrial GMO farming, in this case, the more it’s costing them having to treat people for the disorders that this industry is imposing upon those who buy into it? How many people do you know that didn’t have their toast or bagel this morning? How many of those do you think will go without a sandwich at lunch?

This is not a small problem. It exists everywhere. This is the result of politically engineering your food supply by the industry that supplies it. This is the result of self-policing. Our problem is, it’s created a land of sugar junkies clamoring for their next hit, wherever they can find it. (It’ll probably be the next drive through.) You unwittingly buy right into this with every Big Mac you buy. That comfort you’re buying now leads only to huge amounts of discomfort in the very near future. I’ll start with headaches and stomach aches. It’ll end with your body’s choice of disease starting with atherosclerosis and Alzheimer’s, and end with cancer or cardiovascular disease. This is a cycle that must change.

I add my name to the list of many trying to get the FDA and the USDA to act on this concern. Spearheading this list were Dr. William Davis and Dr. David Perlmutter in 2010 and 2012, with their books Wheat Belly and Grain Brain.  They are still trying to right this wrong. After being on both sides of this argument and experiencing all the pain that the other side has to offer, I know for a fact that the only avenue out of this dilemma, is to go to a paleo or ketogenic diet. I just wish the FDA and the USDA could understand this.

 

National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA)

NIFA’s unique mission is to advance knowledge for agriculture, the environment, human health and well-being, and communities by supporting research, education, and extension programs in the Land-Grant University System and other partner organizations. NIFA doesn’t perform actual research, education, and extension but rather helps fund it at the state and local level and provides program leadership in these areas. (NIFA) is an agency within the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), part of the executive branch of the Federal Government. Congress created NIFA through the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008. NIFA replaced the former Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service (CSREES), which had been in existence since 1994.

I clicked on the research Link to find that they’re pretty proud of their involvement in peanut research, claiming that; North Carolina A&T research makes peanuts safer to eat.

Maybe if they were to stop and realize that peanuts, like all legumes, are grains, they would understand that like grains, peanuts ultimately break down to glucose. They’re just not cereal grains, so they inflict the harm slower, but they still have the capacity to inflict harm. Because they’re harder to digest and do have more fiber than the starchy cereal grains, they impact the glycemic load much less, which is what keeps the blood glucose more even over time. Any doctor will tell you that will make you healthier. The problem is, healthier, in this case, is still unhealthy.

 

I submit that it’s not peanuts that create the allergic reaction, It’s the glucose. Like celiac disease with wheat, peanut allergies operate the same way because they ultimately break down to glucose and then to methylglyoxal, the most glycating substance the body creates from carbs. I contend that it’s in this substance that causes the allergic reaction. (If it weren’t for glucose, the lac operon in your genome could recognize all lactose that you consume, but because of this lac operon, your gut bacteria can’t recognize the lactose because it sees the glucose. It rejects the lactose making people allergic to lactose, when in all actuality; it’s the glucose that’s creating the problem.) Where is the warning for glucose? And where’s the warning fructose as well for that matter? It glycates, almost as much, as glucose.

 

Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS)

 

NRCS provides leadership in a partnership effort to help people conserve, maintain and improve our natural resources and environment. (NRCS) is the primary federal agency that works with private landowners to help them conserve, maintain and improve their natural resources. The Agency emphasizes voluntary, science-based conservation; technical assistance; partnerships; incentive-based programs; and cooperative problem-solving at the community level.

 

This is the agency responsible for the treatment of our environment including the lands and waters that create it. I found that their concern is mostly with conservation and soil health. My concern is in the growing of non-essential grains and feeding them to an unsuspecting society. I included this agency only because it is a small part of this whole complex algorithm. I haven’t checked on their relationship with the EPA is though. I’m sure that they would be happy not having to check toxin levels in the soil with the loss of spraying Roundup. I can only imagine the headaches this herbicide has given them (those not owned by Monsanto).

Risk Management Agency (RMA)

RMA helps to ensure that farmers have the financial tools necessary to manage their agricultural risks. RMA provides coverage through the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation which promotes national welfare by improving the economic stability of agriculture. (RMA) promotes, supports, and regulates sound risk management solutions to preserve and strengthen the economic stability of America’s agricultural producers by providing crop insurance to American producers, developing and the premium rate, administering premium and expense subsidy, approving and supporting products, and reinsuring companies.

 

It’s a shame crop insurance doesn’t cover the damage the crops do to the consumer. Where’s that kind of crop insurance? In a keto diet!

Rural Development (RD)

RD helps rural areas to develop and grow by offering Federal assistance that improves quality of life. RD targets communities in need and then empowers them with financial and technical resources. USDA Rural Development is committed to the future of rural communities. Our role is to increase rural residents’ economic opportunities and improve their quality of life. Rural Development forges partnerships with rural communities, funding projects that bring housing, community facilities, utilities and other services. We also provide technical assistance and financial backing for rural businesses and cooperatives to create quality jobs in rural areas. Rural Development promotes the President’s National Energy Policy and ultimately the nation’s energy security by engaging the entrepreneurial spirit of rural America in the development of renewable energy and energy efficiency improvements. Rural Development works with low-income individuals, State, local and Indian tribal governments, as well as private and nonprofit organizations and user-owned cooperatives.

This agency’s concern is the viability of rural communities, probably in an attempt not to allow rural towns to become ghost towns, which is already beginning to happen where industrial farming is taking place. With the new industrial farming that’s done today, fewer farmers are living in rural areas to support these rural communities. This is industrial farming according to the Monsanto creed. I shouldn’t need to ask you why this is allowed to happen. What I will ask is, what would happen if the grain industry transformed into a healthier industry? It would have to be one that didn’t involve polluting the environment with herbicides and pesticides and creating food that is responsible for all modern disease imposed upon modern man. It would have to include a withdrawal from industrial farming, A lack of the need for all the grain we consume would curtail this problem immensely. We need to bring back the small farmer.

Departmental Management (DM)

DM provides central administrative management support to Department officials and coordinates administrative programs and services. Departmental Management is USDA’s central administrative management organization. Departmental Management provides budget and fiscal management, human resource, procurement and information technology support to mission areas so that they can serve customers more effectively and efficiently. Departmental Management manages the Headquarters Complex and provides direct customer service to Washington, D.C. employees.

If this department’s job is to coordinate interdepartmental management and cooperation, is it their responsibility to disseminate the information from the reports in PubMed, PMC, and the FDA with their agency that recommends what should be in our diet? Have they educated the people at MyPlate.gov about the warnings that have been coming from PubMed and PMC about the dangers of what they’re recommending everyone to consume on a regular basis? Whole grains are still recommended in every agency and association that has a diet recommendation. Even Myplate.gov and the American Dietary Association and, believe it or not, the American Diabetic Association still recommend whole grains should be a part of a healthy diet. What health grains bring is, by far, counterbalanced by the harm they inflict.

National Appeals Division (NAD)

NAD conducts impartial administrative appeal hearings of adverse program decisions made by USDA and reviews of determinations issued by NAD hearing officers when requested by a party to the appeal. (NAD) is responsible for all administrative appeals arising from program activities of the Farm Service Agency, Risk Management Agency, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Rural Business-Cooperative Development Service, Rural Housing Service, and the Rural Utilities Service.

The appeal that I’d like to file would be to appeal the decision to approve grains for human consumption. They’re inadequate as animal feed due to all the herbicides and pesticides in them, yet they still recommend them as human food. This is unconscionable.

OFFICES

Office of Advocacy and Outreach (OAO)

The Office of Advocacy and Outreach (OAO) was established by the 2008 Farm bill to improve access to USDA programs and to improve the viability and profitability of small farms and ranches; beginning farmers and ranchers and socially disadvantaged farmers or ranchers. OAO develops and implements plans to coordinate outreach activities and services provided by the Department through working collaboratively with the field base agencies and continually assessing the effectiveness of its outreach programs.

Improving the viability and profitability of small and beginning farmers and ranchers Improving access to USDA programs for historically underserved communities Improving agricultural opportunities for farm workers

Closing the professional achievement gap by providing opportunities to talented and diverse young people to support the agricultural industry in the 21st century

 

If it’s this department’s responsibility to ensure the small farmer’s growth, why are they allowing Monsanto to take over all farming in the USA? A healthy food supply cannot be supplied by a monopoly as big as Monsanto. Are they familiar with the contracts Monsanto requires their contracted farmers to sign? Are they familiar with to movement Monsanto is making to control 100% or our food supply? Are they aware of the holdings of the Monsanto execs in the drug industry that used to be owned by Monsanto? I’m sure their breakup did not leave anybody without stock options.

 

Office of the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights (OASCR)

OASCR’s mission is to facilitate the fair and equitable treatment of USDA customers and employees while ensuring the delivery and enforcement of civil rights programs and activities. ASCR ensures compliance with applicable laws, regulations, and policies for USDA customers and employees regardless of race, color, national origin, sex (including gender identity and expression), religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, marital or familial status, political beliefs, parental status, protected genetic information, or because all or part of an individual’s income is derived from any public assistance program.

I didn’t ask for this but it causes a lot of discomfort for me and everyone else who eats it. All of our rights were violated in serving this food to us without our consent or approval.

Office of the Chief Economist (OCE)

OCE advises the Secretary on the economic situation in agricultural markets and the economic implications of policies and programs affecting American agriculture and rural communities. OCE serves as the focal point for economic intelligence and analysis related to agricultural markets and for risk assessment and cost-benefit analysis related to Departmental regulations affecting food and agriculture. (OCE) advises the Secretary on the economic implications of policies and programs affecting the U.S. food and fiber system and rural areas as well as coordinates, reviews, and approves the Department’s commodity and farm sector forecasts.

Office of the Chief Scientist (OCS)

OCS provides scientific leadership to the Department by ensuring that research supported by and scientific advice provided to the Department and its stakeholders is held to the highest standards of intellectual rigor and scientific integrity. It also identifies and prioritizes Department-wide agricultural research, education, and extension needs. (OCS) was established in accordance with the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 to provide strategic coordination of the science that informs the Department’s and the Federal government’s decisions, policies and regulations that impact all aspects of U.S. food and agriculture and related landscapes and communities.

OCS advises USDA’s Chief Scientist and the Secretary of Agriculture in the following areas of science:

Agricultural Systems and Technology

Animal Health and Production, and Animal Products

Plant Health and Production, and Plant Products

Renewable Energy, Natural Resources, and Environment

Food Safety, Nutrition, and Health

Agricultural Economics and Rural Communities

 

Our work supports larger goals of scientific prioritization and coordination across the entire Department through which federal agencies provide Senior Advisors to serve in a detailed capacity within OCS. We identify, prioritize and evaluate Department-wide agricultural research, education, and extension needs. In addition, the Office of the Chief Scientist regularly convenes a USDA Science Council to further facilitate cross-Departmental scientific coordination and collaboration.

 

That is directly from their website. To me that says that they ensure information gets from one department to another department, yet they seemed to have missed the reports from PubMed and PMC pointing to the damage grains do, especially wheat.

From a PDF document on nutrition, Executive Summary: National Nutrition Research Roadmap (2016-2021) I found this paragraph;

For Q3T1 (Assessing Dietary Exposures), ARS scientists recognize there is a strong need for biomarkers of intake, nutrient status, and health, and are working in multiple areas related to this. For example, ARS scientists are studying the association of vitamin K with reduced cardiovascular disease and the amounts and types of dietary fatty acids that influence immunity and inflammation. There is also a need for the development of more objective measures of food intake and physical activity. To that end, scientists are testing electronic capture devices that require no input from the user and can download to databases. I can tell them right now, that fatty acids are very important for immune functions. I’ve found those studies in my research. If that’s what I found, I’m sure that’s what they’ll find. I also found that all inflammation that exists is because of glucose in the blood. I wonder how long it will be until they realize that all inflammation is influenced by one thing more than anything else? I can tell them with full confidence that glucose influences inflammation more than anything else. I know because I limit my inflammation by limiting my carb intake and nothing else has worked as well. I can also tell them through experience that exercise and dietary reduction of starches, (which they still recommend being 25% of the diet) will go further than any vitamin. I wonder how long it will take this chief scientist to realize that glycation is at the root of all inflammation and that glucose is at the root of all glycation. It doesn’t take any kind of a scientist to see that if you removed the glucose from the equation, the product of the equation couldn’t exist. The product in this equation is all the diseases created by inflammation.

 

Office of Communications (OC)

OC is USDA’s central source of public information. The office provides centralized information services using the latest, most effective and efficient technology and standards for communication. It also provides the leadership, coordination, expertise, and counsel needed to develop the strategies, products, and services that are used to describe USDA initiatives, programs, and functions to the public. (OC) provides leadership, expertise, counsel, and coordination for the development of communications strategies which are vital to the overall formulation, awareness, and acceptance of USDA programs and policies, and serves as the principal USDA contact point for the dissemination of consistent, timely information.

The dissemination of consistent, timely information, is what this office’s responsibility is, yet I’ve not heard anything from them about the information from over 11,750 studies recording the dangers of glycation, which is the result of glucose interference with your body’s normal processes. With studies showing this glycation going back over 30 years (about as old as GMO seeds), why hasn’t any of this “timely information” been disseminated for 30 years? Is this due to the Monsanto influence? If any agency is not fulfilling their responsibilities to keep the public safe from their own food, it’s this one. They have access to the same studies that I and thousands of others do, yet they still choose to ignore them. They still choose to recommend that this poisonous food be a part of your diet. Why?

Office of Congressional Relations (OCR)

OCR serves as the USDA’s liaison with Congress. OCR works closely with members and staffs of various House and Senate Committees to communicate the USDA’s legislative agenda and budget proposals. (OCR) serves as the Department’s liaison with Members of Congress and their staffs. OCR works closely with members and staffs of various House and Senate Committees including the House Agriculture Committee and the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry to communicate USDA’s legislative agenda and budget proposals. Within OCR is the Office of External and Intergovernmental Affairs (EIA) which serves as the liaison to elected and appointed officials of State, county, local, and Tribal governments. The office also serves as a liaison to USDA stakeholders.

 

My question to this office, have your alerted Congress of the dangers of these grains and the consequences they bring to the human physiology when consumed? Are you afraid of laws being passed that might outlaw some of this insanity? The insanity that I refer to is the insanity of buying into this glucose ruse, orchestrated by one of the most unscrupulous companies to ever conduct business. Is this the office responsible for keeping this information hidden from our lawmakers’ eyes? Is this the office that should be held accountable for our current state of public health? The state of our current public health is obese and diabetic, leading to carcinogenic and atherosclerotic, all because of the inflammatory nature of glycation.

If I can learn this myself and I have a good deal of brain damage inhibiting my learning ability, why can’t this office learn this to alert our Congress of this problem? The problem exists only for the consumer, as it’s a boom for Monsanto and its industries. Why would they want to control this? For them, this is good business. This is what attracts stockholders.

Office of Ethics (OE)

The Office of Ethics (OE) is the centralized office responsible for coordinating and implementing USDA’s Ethics program throughout the Department. OE provides ethics services to employees at all levels of USDA concerning advice and training about compliance with ethics laws and regulations, including the conflict of interest and impartiality rules, as well as the rules governing political activity by Federal employees.

 

A visit to this office’s site brought me to a page that showed me;

 

THE STOCK ACT

On April 4, 2012, the President signed the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act or STOCK Act (S. 2038), which amended the Ethics in Government Act of 1978 (5 U.S.C. App. § 101 et seq.) The Act has several different provisions, some of which are effective immediately, some which become effective 90 days after enactment, some which become effective on August 31, 2012, and some which do not become effective until 18 months after enactment. The following compendium of ethics laws, regulations and guidelines govern Executive Branch employees’ conduct, including USDA employees. The Department promulgated its own supplemental ethics regulation (5 CFR Part 8301) in 2006 to augment the Office of Government Ethics’ Standards of Ethical Conduct. The Department’s ethics regulation and other selected ethics laws and regulations are accessible from this page for ready reference (click on “General Ethics Laws and Regulations” below).

I wonder what their ethic regulations say about recommending poisonous food to remain in our diet when there is proof of this food’s glycative effects in over 10,000 studies in PubMed and PMC. What does their ethics say about falsifying information disseminated to the public? The still claim that whole grains are safe to eat.

Office of Environmental Markets (OEM)

OEM supports the development of emerging markets for carbon, water quality, wetlands, and biodiversity. (OEM) provides leadership in the development of emerging markets for carbon, water quality, wetlands, and biodiversity. OEM is building national environmental market infrastructure, supporting regional market innovation, and fostering collaboration around market-based conservation within USDA and across the federal government.

 

I wonder if this environmental market infrastructure includes more fields of these killing field grains? If so, they may want to re-assess their goals, if they intend to protect the public and the environment.

Office of the Executive Secretariat (OES)

OES ensures that all Department officials are included in the correspondence drafting and policy-making process through a managed clearance and control system. Keeping policy officials informed of executive documents enhances the Secretary’s ability to review sound and thought out policy recommendations before making final decisions. (OES) ensures that all Department officials are included in the correspondence drafting and policy-making process through a managed clearance and control system. Keeping policy officials informed of executive documents enhances the Secretary’s ability to review sound and thought out policy recommendations before making final decisions.

Are these the people we should hold accountable?

 

Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships (FBNP)

USDA has a long history of working with faith-based and community organizations to help those in need, by providing federal assistance through domestic nutrition assistance programs, international food aid, rural development opportunities, and natural resource conservation.

 

This is the office that coordinates churches food banks to assist the needy. Every church I’ve been to has had one, and they all give out plenty of bread, the deadliest of foods that we can give anyone. This condemns these poor unsuspecting souls to lives of poor health and continued medication. Our food supply is inundated with this vile product, only because it’s the primary bringer of people to medication, medication for pain.

Office of the Inspector General (OIG)

OIG investigates allegations of crime against the Department’s program and promotes the economy and efficiency of its operations. (OGC) is an independent legal agency that provides legal advice and services to the Secretary of Agriculture and to all other officials and agencies of the Department with respect to all USDA programs and activities.

 

There were 50,000 food safety inspections in 1972. That was reduced to just over 9,000 in 2008. If there were only 9000 in 2008, reduced from 50,000 in 1972, when the threat level was much lower, the FDA is only succeeding at failing us on an unprecedented basis. I’m sure this is due to funding cutbacks from the government but I’m also sure it involves something related to departmental offices being run by corporate management brought in from corporations they’re supposed to regulate, proving once again (unfortunately) the bottom line is what wins here and the bottom line is greed.

If the USDA and the FDA can allow a food this dangerous through its monitoring, I’m afraid to even think about what else has snuck through?  The beef industry has already displayed their contempt for regulation through the mass production of beef that their industry is responsible for, especially in the last 30 years.

Office of the General Counsel (OGC)

The Office of the General Counsel (OGC) is an independent legal agency that provides legal advice and services to the Secretary of Agriculture and to all other officials and agencies of the Department with respect to all USDA programs and activities.

 

I wonder how many lawsuits this agency is going to have to fight for advising the public to eat food that’s as dangerous as whole grains. Myplate.gov still has them at 25% of our diet. Why?

Office of Tribal Relations (OTR)

The Office of Tribal Relations is located in the Office of the Secretary and is responsible for government-to-government relations between USDA and tribal governments.

 

I can only empathize with this office as they have to see that this garbage is provided to tribal governments as well as the public in general.

I listed all of their offices and agencies for a reason. I wanted to show you the vastness of this department. It’s huge. It has to be huge to protect our food supply. As big as it is, it’s not doing that. It’s not doing its job. It’s been hijacked by the industry that it’s supposed to control. The proof lies in the extent of which disease exists today.

With all of these agencies and offices, I’m sure it’s quite difficult to keep all this information straight for the public to fully understand what this agency is allowing to “fall through the cracks”, as in allowing grains and sugar to be recommended food for everyone to eat, sometimes even those who have celiac disease. What this agency doesn’t understand is that everyone has an intolerance to the gluten that comes in grains. It’s estimated that 95% of the population have some sort of intolerance to the gliadin and gluten found in most cereal grains, especially wheat, barley and rye.

I’ve already contacted the Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion0 (CNPP) to ask them why they still recommend including grains in the diet. They’ve come to their senses when it comes to sugar, why can’t they, with grains, they’re just as deadly as sugar, if not more so? The agency above is responsible for recommending our diet at My Plate and I’ve already asked them why they still recommend a food that can cause as much damage is this food does. I’m waiting for their reply.

There is absolutely no reason for these foods to still be recommended except for the fact that to decrease the consumption of these foods would irreparably harm Monsanto and the farming industry that they control. And they control a huge portion of it.

The infiltration of their old execs and lobbyists into the offices of the FDA and the USDA is evidence indicating their complicity in the matter. With their old personnel working the offices and agencies of the USDA and the FDA, they’ve cleared a pathway to their full control over what goes on your table. This in return gives them control over the meds you’ll be buying from them in the near future.

I noticed that there is no agency or office to review and disseminate the information in these research studies showing the damaging effects of the food they’re recommending for us to eat. There’s supposed to be one, but there isn’t.

How do they make recommendations on what foods are good for you to eat, when you’re ignoring all the studies that say otherwise? They rely on Monsanto to tell them what’s healthy and what isn’t. Is that a source you would trust? I hope so because you trust them with every bagel you put in your mouth.

Sugar; America’s Worst Addiction,

Confessions of a Reformed Carboholic

Sugar, I love it. I grew up loving it. Because I grew up loving it, I’m now addicted to it. It’s an addiction that was forced upon me by our food industry, telling my mother that she had to make refined and whole grains the most prevalent food in my diet. She fed me this food, supposedly, to keep me healthy. Aren’t whole grains supposed to make you healthy? That was 60 years ago. I’m paying the price for that now, with my arthritis. I was paying the price for it just 30 months ago, by carrying 30 lbs more than what I carry right now and being borderline diabetic and in pain all the time. I’m about to debunk this myth that whole grains are healthy. There is a price to be paid for eating a (starchy) carbohydrate diet and you’re paying it with every sandwich you eat, every corn chip you munch, and every noodle you eat.

My sisters are paying the price for it now, also. They are both obese and diabetic. My father has always exercised to keep his weight down. He’s was always able to burn off the excess glucose, until he was about 35. Even though he’s always jogged every day, since I was in 7th grade, he couldn’t run away from this. After being borderline diabetic he couldn’t change his downhill spiral. He’s now taking an anti-diabetes drug which has several side effects that are initially so small that they aren’t noticed but after time, start to inflict other harm to the body, due to the effects of the chemical changes caused by the medication. His carb diet is starting to lead him down the same path as my mother, who passed away 4 months ago. My mother, in trying to be the best mother and wife she could be, went along with what the FDA, the USDA and the ADA told her because she wanted to do what was right for her family. Guidelines from the ADA telling her that grains needed to be at the base of her all of her meals was what drove her to do this to our family. This is what doomed us to our current list of ailments, ailments like obesity and diabetes, arthritis, cancer, stomach ailments galore, and now, side effects from treatment for those ailments. It all comes along with a carbohydrate diet because all carbs break down into glucose. Even yet, MyPlate.gov suggests that whole grains be a part of a healthy diet. The evidence I’m going to show you is completely contrary to this notion.

Because sugar addiction is America’s biggest addiction, that makes it, its worst addiction. It’s an addiction that everybody grew up with and into. It’s an addiction that’s been with us for as long as we’ve been eating it. It’s an addiction that’s become far worse than it’s ever been since we’ve been eating it over its 10,000-year history. It’s an addiction that’s built scores of empires, and then tore them all down. This addiction is far worse than any other addiction that plagues America. Whether it be today, yesterday or tomorrow, this addiction is the worst that Man has ever faced or may ever face. This is simply due to its propensity to expand its influence across the whole world. It’s also driven by the greed of those condemned to this addiction. Their desire to feed their own addiction drives them to impose this addiction on the rest of the world, simply so they can make an extra buck. This addiction is at the root of almost every known form of dementia, heart disease, diabetes and everything that comes along with that, like cancers, cardiovascular diseases. The list is endless because sugar’s worst instigator of inflammation, AGEs, or glycation is at the base of an arm-long list of disorders.

All of these disorders can be curbed simply by curbing carbohydrate consumption but addiction keeps this from happening. That’s why fighting this addiction, in particular, is so important. It’s life-saving at its simplest, just remove contaminating factors from the food source and the diseases cannot manifest themselves. The contaminating factor in this case? You guessed it, sugar. Sugar addiction is leading our society to the brink of destruction because of the nature of its addiction and what it does to the body. Its continued use only leads to discomfort and death. It’s only redeeming factor is that it tastes good and satiates quickly. This is what makes it so deadly, though.

That’s sad. I have to live with it too. I can’t have what I love, what I’ve been addicted to. I have to say no, to stay healthy. So do you. I know that’s exactly the opposite of what you’ve been told, but what you were told is wrong. For us, it’s dead wrong. It should have never been pushed upon us to eat it in the quantities that it was. But pushed upon us it was. And we bought it. We bought into it big time and we’re paying for it now. This is evidenced by the proliferation of Alzheimer’s disease. How many lives does it have to take, before people wake up? How many families does it have to destroy, before people wake up?

Carbolism Should Be Treated Like Alcoholism

We need clinics for sugar addiction and they should be financed by the food industrial complex that imposed this diet on the people who now suffer the consequences of it. The administration of the clinic though should be done by trained medical professionals, because this is an addiction and should be treated as such.

Is this something that should be investigated? Should an industry be held accountable for the ruse that’s been pulled on the American people, and now the world? The ruse is that this is healthy food when it’s really not. Why are they still allowed to claim that it’s healthy? It’s clearly not, and it’s clearly at the root of almost all of the deadliest diseases, that we’re actively fighting right now. Diseases like Atherosclerosis, Endocarditis and Hypertensive heart disease. That’s just the CVD’s. We haven’t even covered the cancers or diseases of inflammation. Those lists are much longer.

Can anyone tell me why this is still allowed to be advertised like it is today? It starts with what’s put in baby food for starches and fillers and sweeteners. These fillers satiate babies quickly often putting them right to sleep after a short burst of energy. This is the first indication of sugar addiction and it starts at a young age. This is done for a purpose. That purpose is to addict you to its lure, so you’ll buy into it when you’re an adult.

It continues with your introduction to breakfast cereals and the load of sugars they carry when you see them advertised with the Saturday morning cartoons. I can remember for commercials for Sugar Pops, Sugar Frosted Flakes, and Captain Crunch. It starts young, real young and continues through your youth with candy and soda, and into your adult years with bread and baked goods (cakes, crackers, cookies).

It’s been forced upon us. Nobody has had a choice in this addiction and that is what makes it so lethal. That also makes it profitable for the Pharmaceutical industry. This is what scares me. The Pharmaceutical industry used to be owned by the same industry the provided the crop seed for the farmers that grew the grain that provided the flour to bake all of those loaves of bread that causing so much disease.

The Perfect Ruse

It’s almost the perfect scam. Sell crop seed to farmers that have been genetically modified to accept enzyme inhibiting chemicals, so that it feeds your customer base, food that will require them, in the future to purchase medications from your other companies. How convenient we’ve made it for this industry to take our money. We should be ashamed.

We would be ashamed if we knew that this was done intentionally, especially if it was done for nothing more than profit. That is why this is something that should be investigated. Regardless of how long it takes, we need to know who is responsible. This is a lesson that cannot be lost, like every other study done on these concerns, we cannot allow this to be swept under the rug. Even if they’re no longer around, we need to hold their companies’ accountable. This is the only way we can prevent this from happening in the future.

For 1,000s of years, we’ve been treating the symptoms of the diseases and disorders that carbohydrate digestion cause. Because of our addiction to it, we’ve never looked at the prospect of eliminating the cause completely. When a whole society is addicted to a staple that they’ve eaten their whole lives, how does one tell the truth about something that is so important to everyone on the planet? How does one tell everyone that what they’re eating is killing them slowly, expensively, painfully, and worst of all, undignified because of all the lost memories from brain damage? How does one tell a whole society that a staple that they’ve lived on for close to 10,000 years has been, and continues to be, the one food that creates more disease and illness than any other one food in their diet? How does a world break their addiction, when the addicted are the majority of the world and only 5% of that population can recognize their addiction?

Dr. Perlmutter is trying to tell the people and continues to do so. I honestly feel that he thinks as I do, that if we don’t dispel the consumption of these foods, our society is doomed. From what I’ve learned since I’ve broken the addiction, I see a collapse, due to out of control emotions, due to the wild glucose swings in the blood, making people under the control of a carbohydrate diet, under the control of those who impose this diet on the American public. It’s in their interest to keep America addicted and the best way they can do this is to tell you that it’s healthy and what you need to keep your body healthy. Only those who want to buy their pharmaceuticals, from them in the future, are ones who should buy their food products now, because, they eventually will.

By following what little advice I offer, to curb your carbs dramatically and as completely as possible, you can dramatically slow down if not eliminate many of the disorders and diseases within these pages. If it can’t eliminate your disease, it will reduce the expression of your disorder. If it doesn’t cure you, it will definitely extend your life. My goal is to extend it a minimum of 20 years. I would like to see everyone live to be 100 years old, or more. I know this diet lifestyle can do that (depending on your age and degree of addiction of course). To know this yourself, though, you have to change your diet.
