They Don't Want Cleaner Air, Healthier Food or a Healthy Population, Period!


Why would they? Why would governments want any kind of advancements in health when this would immediately remove funding from their corporate masters? The answer is they wouldn't.

If we take just the group of eight (G8) countries, including Canada, France, Russia, Germany, Italy, Japan, the U.K. and the U.S, they all have governments with substantial funding from pharmaceutical conglomerates. This means that the sicker people are, the more profits can be generated by those funding sources. But they don't want people too sick. Just healthy enough to go to work and pay taxes and just sick enough to keep people in a permanently diseased state to continue this vicious cycle of illness.

Food is a great example. Would governments ever have allowed genetically modified (GM) foods, pesticides, herbicides, and toxic chemical preservatives in the food supply if they were interested in protecting the health of their population? Of course not. Even a chimpanzee with an IQ higher than a mosquito can see the illogical nature of these actions if the interest is in advancing health. Actually, chimpanzees and many other primates and animals are so much smarter than humans when it comes to food as they instinctively WILL NOT consume poison. And we think we're the more intelligent species?

There is absolutely no end to the list of GM foods currently stocked or soon to be stocked at major grocery retailers. From GM broccoli to bread, alfalfa (contaminating via cross pollination), rice, apples, chocolate, fish, and the list goes on and on. Eventually, there will be very few natural foods in existence that are not tainted by genetic modification. The worst part is that approved GM foods have been found to cause a host of health problems including organ damage.

Pollution is another classic example. We
might expect the government to protect us from unsafe air. That has never happened. Insidious forms of toxic air pollution -- deemed so harmful to human health that a government officials sought to bring emissions under control more than two decades ago -- persist in hundreds of communities across the United States, an investigation by the Center for Public Integrity's iWatch News and NPR shows.

Pollution violations at more than 1,600 plants across the United States were serious enough that the government believes they require urgent action, according to a recent analysis of EPA data by NPR and the Center for Public Integrity. Yet nearly 300 of those facilities have been considered "high priority violators" of the Clean Air Act by the Environmental Protection Agency for at least a decade.

About a quarter of those 1,600 violators are on an internal EPA "watch list," which the agency has kept secret until now.

One of the biggest reasons that many communities still face too much toxic pollution in their air is that companies self-report their own pollution, and many are allowed to estimate the quantity of toxic chemicals. The government continues to allow this ridiculous practice. That's equivalent to getting a killer to investigate his own crimes.

In a lot of cases, annual estimates are based on only one hour of monitoring the exhausts from a plant. For other facilities, no actual measuring is required.

"The monitoring is shockingly bad," says Eric Schaeffer, a former chief of an EPA enforcement office who now heads a watchdog group called the Environmental Integrity Project.

Schaeffer says it would be like the police deciding to enforce speed limits by giving annual tests. The result is that some companies actually emit tens of times more toxic chemicals than they had been reporting.

"I make an appointment to drive past the radar gun, that's my speeding test. How ridiculous is that?" Schaeffer says.

Air and environmental pollution, skyrocketing disease rates and toxic food are sucking the life out of humanity. People are getting sicker, fatter, living with disease for decades into old age, and dying from cancer and other diseases at rates higher than ever before. Yet, the mainstream media touts higher life expectancy, advanced health technologies and medical systems that are apparently revolutionizing health care. Hogwash!

People are not healthier than they were fifty years ago. They're dropping like flies and if they do live past the age of 60 or 70, their quality of life is very poor due to debilitating illnesses caused primarily by the engine we call government back by big pharma. They run the show and they don't want you to live past a certain age unless you're addicted to pharmaceuticals. They don't want you to be healthy and they certainly don't want you educated on how to take care of your own health.

What can we do? Ban the system and everything it currently represents. Ban conventional doctors, drugs, government regulators and any scientist that thinks he or she has a clue on how to fix the same problems with the same type of thinking. We must unite and come to terms that the system is broken. It needs an overhaul of monumental proportions that will take people out of the current mindtrap and into an age of natural health, natural law and a natural state of being.
