What if the deadly e-coli outbreak in Germany that was blamed on organic sprouts with no direct proof, but through circumstantial evidence only, was instituted as part of a deliberate campaign to sway public opinion in favor of compliance with Codex regulations and to call for the irradiation of organic seeds?
Whether the contamination came from the water, seeds, was genetically engineered in a lab specifically for this purpose, or was a natural and unreported product of the genetic engineering process and high rate of GM contamination we are currently experiencing, makes no difference at this point to the people, and I use that term lightly, who are taking advantage of every situation to turn it to their favor and make a fast buck off others’ misery.
While strolling the net, I hear a lot of buzz lately about how dirty organic processing is because free-range cattle poop on the ground where plants are grown that people eat, and that all organic seeds should be irradiated to kill the deadly e-coli pathogens inherent in this system. That is the spin, based on half-truths and outright lies. The truth is, organic farming has proven to be safer and healthier than its factory farm cousins. Poop from organic, free-range cows that lands on the soil is not the problem. I grow my veggies in organic poop, and have never been sick from a head of cabbage, bean sprout, or beet. So, either this latest “threat” in the form of e-coli was a concocted event intended to lead to the eradication of organics or simply an advantageous situation that is being exploited by the powers that be. Either way, here is a possible anticipated outcome:
Organic sprouts are blamed for a deadly e-coli outbreak. To remediate this, irradiation of all organic SEEDS will be called for as per Codex guidelines, and instituted as a process for the National Organics Program in order to retain certification. Simple. Kill true organics from the inside out, and leave the door open for the likes of Monsanto et al to completely take over ALL food supplies without firing a shot.
If this plan should work, then this could signify the end of organic food as we know it. Period. Spread the word. Maybe we can nip this in the bud before it grows too big. Meanwhile, grow and save your own seed from clean sources, teach others to do the same, and spread this movement just as far and wide as possible to save as many people as possible, or we can simply kiss organics and our health goodbye, and say hello to complete food control via Codex Alimentarius and your friendly USDA.
