Does Eating Meat Cause an Early Death or Are the New Statistics Just Another Example of Smoke and Mirrors?
By Mannie Barling and Ashley F. Brooks (2012)
A Harvard School of Public Health study, published online in the Archives of Internal Medicine this week, examined the eating habits and health of more than 110,000 adults for more than twenty years and concluded that eating any amount or any type of red meat significantly increases the risk of premature death.
The study asserted that adding a daily serving of a hot dog or two slices of bacon caused a 20% higher risk of death. Continue reading →
FromThe Brotherhood And The Manipulation of Society
By Ivan Fraser and Mark Beeston
The apathy of the public towards their manipulation has also been influenced very deliberately by the addition of chemicals to food and water supplies. For example, this happened when sodium fluoride was introduced into our water supply and the majority of our tooth-pastes, supposedly to prevent dental caries in the under twelve-year-olds.
What they did not tell the public was that sodium fluoride is a highly toxic by-product of the aluminium manufacturing process and the refining Continue reading →
People waiting outside of a closed grocery store for the possibility of getting the remaining food is not the picture of the “American Dream.” Yet on March 23, outside the Laney Walker Supermarket in Augusta, Ga., that is exactly what happened.
“American Dream”: Food loaded into Dumpsters while Hundreds of Hungry Americans Restrained by Police By Sarah Carlson (2013)
Residents filled the parking lot with bags and baskets hoping to get some of the baby food, canned goods, noodles and other non-perishables. But a local church never came to pick up the food, as the storeowner prior to the eviction said they had arranged. By the time the people showed up for the food, what was left inside the premises—as with any eviction—came into the ownership of the property holder, SunTrust Bank. Continue reading →
He Called Me “Mooi Mooi” A little bit of No Black Pete on Too Much Black
I had not thought about it in a long time. But, as I had set out to reblog a post, I found that WordPress is once again tinkering away at the site. The reader does not work, so there will be no reblog. As I looked to post on African food to educate myself instead, a site came up that mentioned “moimoi“. Continue reading →
The Truth About Pork (The Pig)
By The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad
Excerpt from “How to Eat to Live,” Book Two 1972.
Pork or pig, all its parts and by-products, has been a chief food for the so-called American Negro since the days of his physical bondage. The pig was not made for human consumption. The pig is the chief cause of many of the ills and mental deficiencies occurring among the so-called American Negroes and any other people who eat it.
The pig is a mass of worms. Each mouthful you eat is not a nutritious food but a mass of small worms the naked eye cannot detect. Continue reading →
Black Farmers Rally For Discrimination Settlement
By JULIE ROSE (2010)
This is why you cannot get any more young black farmers in it, because they see the struggle that the older black farmers got — being discriminated and mistreated. – Vern Switzer
After rallying across the South last week, black farmers plan to be in Washington, D.C., on Monday to call on the government to “pay up” on its more than 10-year-old promise to compensate for discrimination.
Despite the conditions of the 1999 civil rights settlement, more than 70,000 black farmers have yet to see a penny.
‘A Dying Breed’
Vern Switzer is 63 years old, but he still single-handedly farms 19 acres of land along a busy country road just outside Winston Salem, N.C. Continue reading →
Right-Wing African-American Civil Rights Group Works Hand in Hand with Monsanto & Bushies
By Jonathan Matthews.
Meet the civil rights group whose rhetoric comes from Wise Use, whose support comes from Monsanto, and whose agenda coincides precisely with that of George W. Bush.
A couple of years back I wrote a piece called ‘The Fake Parade’. It was about a march at the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg that had been widely reported as a protest by poor Third World farmers in support of GMOs. A leading light of the Biotechnology Industry Organisation declared the march “a turning point” because “real, live, developing-world farmers” had begun “speaking for themselves”. What they had to say seemed pretty unpalatable to the environmental and development NGOs that have raised concerns over GM crops. A commentary on Continue reading →
