Hain Celestials has been caught mislabeling its “organic” products. Not only that, but Celestial Seasonings tea, which is so popular and “healthy?” Well, hold onto your hats…. It has been found to be laden with pesticides and known carcinogens, well above FDA standards.
It seems that “organic” does not mean “safe from tampering.” What sorts of “business interruptions” justify using non-organically produced annual seeds? I’m willing to bet that the dramatic effects on crops due to drought from climate change easily warrant such activity, under this clause; however, I just as easily would bet that it could mean anything in a court of law, from a lack of staff or machinery issues to financial losses in a particular quarter. As vague as it is, a “business interruption,” could be any problem a corporation faces in making duplicated or better profits from year to year. This is apparently a fully exploitable loophole. Let’s look at it all in a bit more detail…
I am the last of my kind. That last of the truly pure here on earth. I have struggled long and hard to maintain my integrity, as did all of my brothers and sisters in a war we did not start, but were force into. In this war, we have been systematically overtaken by hostile genetically engineered forces and/or eradicated by toxic poisons that kill everything but the invading army, and we didn’t stand a chance.

Monsanto doesn’t want a ban on GMO crops. No. And they certainly don’t want a strong movement in America to insist on a ban. Solution? Promote the idea of agricultural coexistence, just as AGree is doing. Divert anti-GMO forces into campaigns for labeling. Let those folks spend all their time, money, and energy trying to get labeling. Make sure the movement doesn’t turn into a powerful force demanding a ban.
The all-important impression is unmistakable: the White house stands for “healthy eating.” But meanwhile… Despite his hints that he would support labeling of GMO food, Barack Obama has done herculean work to destroy true natural food. The details are undeniable.
