So maybe Monsanto is being used by the government for population control. Isn't the CEO's wife a member of congress who introduces pro Monsanto bills?

Wouldn't surprise me...I just wonder about the chemicals in my food...artificial colorings and preservatives, corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, aspartame, etc.

Ultimately, large corporations are corrupt, the government is corrupt...I don't believe the FDA, regulations, and Codex Alimenterus are here to help

I can't believe these people can get away with crap like this.

Excellent post. This is so revealing on so many levels. This helps explain why indeed reporters of integrity report so little actual news. It is sad--one can always follow the money. Another issue is that public schools do not offer the choice of organic milk.

It gets better.

After a five-week trial and six hours of deliberation which ended August 18, 2000, a Florida state court jury unanimously determined that Fox "acted intentionally and deliberately to falsify or distort the plaintiffs' news reporting on BGH." In that decision, the jury also found that Jane's threat to blow the whistle on Fox's misconduct to the FCC was the sole reason for the termination... and the jury awarded $425,000 in damages which makes her eligible to apply for reimbursement for all court costs, expenses and legal fees.

Fox appealed and prevailed February 14, 2003 when an appeals court issued a ruling reversing the jury, accepting a defense argument that had been rejected by three other judges on at least six separate occasions.

Appeals Court rules that the news can lie

In that regard, Akre notes that federal agencies may announce general policies and interpretive principles through the adjudicative process and argues that the fact that "the FCC adopted the news distortion policy through an adjudicative process does not affect its validity or enforceability as a matter of federal law..."
First, federal law recognizes a dichotomy between rulemaking and adjudication; it does not equate the two.


This here sets a "precedent."

Say it with me, kids.

There has been precedent set that the news doesn't have to tell you a damned bit of truth.

Because the FCC’s news distortion policy is not a “law, rule, or regulation” under section 448.102, Akre has failed to state a claim under the whistle-blower's statute.

That's right, news agencies don't have to provide accurate news because they are simply producing entertainment. I mean, because the FCCs news distortion carries ZERO authority, can the news just be completely made up?

Yes it can.

Seinfeld and Battle Star Galactica are fictional, so the news can be too. Isn't that fantastic?
With all of the bang, zoom, and production, it not only appears that the news is just another TV show, it, in fact, IS just another TV show, so says the Florida court of appeals.

So say we all.

This is basically understandable, unless you're an idealist.

Money does indeed make the world go round.

i feel for journalists who are repeatedly being manipulated to hold back the truth.

but how many journalists continually let this sort of thing slide through, without disclosing.

It makes me sick to think about it.

also i feel ashamed that Rupert Murdoch was an Australian.

This is seriously old news.

I haven't drunk milk or used any milk products in 34 years, and after reading this today I went ahead and dumped my monsanto stock. No reason to help fund people that lie for the love of money.

Seriously, if you are in the states, then try to limit milk consumption. Try the vanilla soy milk, as it really does taste similar- so much so that I really don't notice the difference in cereal.

Check the label though. The 'Silk' brand states on the label that it is not from genetically modified soy beans. I use the plain soy but only this brand.

Thanks, as it turns out, that's exactly the brand I buy every once in a long while.
And the vanilla flavor of that one is the one I was talking about. So hopefully everything's cool.

This is what we get when we foster the notions in society that making money is more important than anything else.

I will never forget watching this show on tv, some educational station, and it had a dozen CEOs speaking to students at a university about business. Sort of boring, I was just channel surfing when I found it. But I paused to watch it as one older man spoke about how, 40 years ago, when he started running companies, that the whole point of running a business was to make a good product. He went on to say that now, it was more about keeping the stock price high and keeping the stock holders happy.

I had never thought about it before. But somehow, that seems wrong.

It would be so awesome if some entity like Anonymous used this info to go after Monsanto or the MSM as hard as they went after Scientology.

They have made a lot of inroads in drawing attention to the dangers of Scientology to the point that countries world-wide are cracking down on Co$.

IMO, Monsanto and the MSM are much, much more dangerous.

America is and for the most part always has been a corporation. The rights, liberties, and justice that once was a big part of this nation no longer exists. We are nothing but sheep, toys, trash, to these corporations. The courts, the law, and everyone in Government are bribed, manipulated, and threatened. The only way to end such things is to form a powerful constituent of people that will fight to the death. Then and only then will we get true freedom...

Double Danger of High Fructose Corn Syrup

Sucrose is a disaccharide composed of 50 percent glucose and 50 percent fructose. Dr. Fields repeated her experiments to determine whether it was the glucose or fructose moiety that caused the harmful effects. Starch breaks down into glucose when digested. On a copper-deficient diet, the male rats showed some signs of copper deficiency, but not the gross abnormalities of vital organs that occur in rats on the sucrose diet. When the rats were fed fructose, the fatal organ abnormalities occured

Lysl oxidase is a copper-dependent enzyme that participates in the formation of collagen and elastin. Fructose seems to interfere with copper metabolism to such an extent that collagen and elastin cannot form in growing animals--hence the hypertrophy of the heart and liver in young males. The females did not develop these abnormalities, but they resorbed their litters.1

These experiements should give us pause when we consider the great increase in the use of high fructose corn syrup during the past 30 years, particularly in soft drinks, fruit juices and other beverages aimed at growing children, children increasingly likely to be copper deficient as modern parents no longer serve liver to their families. (Liver is by far the best source of copper in human diets.)

In humans, fructose feeding leads to mineral losses, especially higher fecal excretions of iron and magnesium, than did subjects fed sucrose. Iron, magnesium, calcium, and zinc balances tended to be more negative during the fructose-feeding period as compared to balances during the sucrose-feeding period.19 There is significant evidence that high sucrose diets may alter intracellular metabolism, which in turn facilitates accelerated aging through oxidative damage. Scientists found that the rats given fructose had more undesirable cross-linking changes in the collagen of their skin than in the other groups. These changes are also thought to be markers for aging. The scientists say that it is the fructose molecule in the sucrose, not the glucose, that plays the larger part.20

Because it is metabolized by the liver, fructose does not cause the pancreas to release insulin the way it normally does. Fructose converts to fat more than any other sugar. This may be one of the reasons Americans continue to get fatter. Fructose raises serum triglycerides significantly. As a left-handed sugar, fructose digestion is very low. For complete internal conversion of fructose into glucose and acetates, it must rob ATP energy stores from the liver.21

This is jusf a small portion of this article. The full article is worth the read in my opinion.

You might want to rethink your position on fructose

This is not true at all!

High Fructose Corn Syrup is made from corn, is the same as sugar, and is fine in moderation!

That is incorrect. Regular sugar and HFCS are not the same. On a molecular level they are different from a ratio perspective and the body sees and processes them in a different fashion. Obviously moderation is key when it comes to any type of sugar. HFCS means that he ratio of fructose to glucose is not equal. Fructose must be processed by the liver and glucose can be absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Regular sugar comes in a ratio of 1 glucose to 1 fructose. HCFS comes in many ratios but a very common one is 9 fructose to 1 glucose.

Sugar vs. HFCS

Science of Sugar

Wiki, I know but check the 90/10 ratio

a) this thread will die- umm well, 99.9% of all threads eventually die at ATS. But so far so good.

b) this story will get wiped under the rug- isn't this a repeat of #1? We addressed this already...

c) NO change will occur from the telling, spreading, or posting of this story- Well, it appears that Monsato just lost another investor, according to one poster in this thread... And you better believe I starred THAT one!

WELCOME TO THE NEW WORLD ORDER. - Thanks, but no thanks. Me hatem the NWO. I will fight on.
