tart-cherries (300 x 198)By The Writers Collective and Friends of Farmers

Cherry growers face ten years in prison and/or $7.5 million in penalties for citing scientific studies.


Because cherries beat the pants off non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs for controlling pain and lowering inflammation.

There would go billions in selling aspirin, Tylenol, Aleve, and the other NSAIDs, that coincidentally kill over 16,500 people a year.

Cherries, incidentally, don’t kill anyone.

The pharmaceutical companies (along with Monsanto and other biotech agribusiness) are behind HR 2749.

Ending free speech around nutrition occurred during the WWII as well, when Hitler made any passing of nutritional information punishable by death. Interestingly, some of the very same German pharmaceutical companies that backed Hitler (and produced gas for the gas chambers and killed prisoners with vaccines) and may have benefited from his “punishable by death” ruling against nutritional information, are involved in these bills.

Hidden inside HR 2749 (there is a lot hidden in that bill) is Codex, a massive plan designed by Bayer, BASF and Hoescht (Aventis) to declare all nutrients toxins and remove them from access. Codex mandates pesticides (even banned ones), irradiation of all food, GMO approval, and makes passing nutritional information, even to friends and family, a crime. (For an excellent introduction to Codex, read Megan Kargher’s How Organic is Organic? Codex Alimentarius Cohorts Wage War Against Food.)

Meanwhile, in protecting NSAIDs and keeping people from knowledge of cherries, the FDA protects the drug companies so they can keep making money, while routinely killing thousands a year.
