The APP:

Looks like a fantastic method of keeping track of Monsanto and what/who you are boycotting in the food aisles. Not only Monsanto but many other unscrupulous companies using less-than-honest methods to flog their wares on us. And all from your IPhone!


itunes.apple.com...

Description: Buycott helps you organize your consumer spending to support causes you care about.


Many will state that they can track the Monsanto Machine on their own but how is that even possible when they are hidden behind layers and layers of secrecy, false labeling etc? It's not. Have a look at the lists below for example:

www.activistpost.com... your health and help starve the beast by avoiding products distributed by these companies and their subsidiaries. Not every item on this list contains genetically modified ingredients. The list is based on the duplicitous marketing of the companies. More consumers are trying to make healthy choices at the grocery stores, but it’s difficult when companies push their toxic wares and dress them up as health food.

Some of the quietly owned subsidiaries may surprise you. Included is the amount that the company (and its subsidiaries) donated to defeat California Proposition 37 which would have required GMO labeling.


Just a sampling. Follow the link for MANY more of these companies:

Campbell’s - $250,000.00 Healthy Request Wolfgang Puck Soups Pace Foods Pepperidge Farms V-8

Cargill, Inc - $202,229.36 Truvia Natural Sweetener Shady Brooks Farms Diamond Crystal Salt Liza Nature Fresh Peter’s Chocolate Wilbur Chocolate Honeysuckle White Rumba Meats Good Nature

Coca Cola - $1,164,400.00 Vitamin Water Smart Water Dasani Nestea Minute Maid Honest Tea Odwalla Vitaminenergy

Con-Agra - $1,076,700.00 Orville Redenbacher’s Organic Hunt’s Organic Lightlife Alexia Healthy Choice Hebrew National

Dean Foods - $253,950.00 Horizon Silk White Wave General Mills - $908,200.00 Nature Valley Fiber One Cheerios Cascadian Farm Muir Glen Lärabar Gold Medal Organic Food Should Taste Good

Heinz/Hains Celestial - $500,000.00 (Hains is actually owned by Heinz, Phillip Morris, Monsanto, Citigroup, Exxon-Mobil, Wal-Mart and Lockheed Martin) Earth’s Best Spectrum Organics Garden of Eatin’ Casbah Rice Dream Soy Dream WestSoy TofuTown MaraNatha Mountain Sun Walnut Acres Fruiti di Bosco Health Valley Bearitos Bread Shop Celestial Seasonings

Kellogg’s - $632,500.00 Kashi Muslix Nutrigrain Bear Naked Morningstar Farms Gardenburger

Kraft - $551,148.25 Snapple ReaLemon Triscuit SnackWell’s South Beach Boca Back to Nature Nabisco

Nestle - $1,169,400.00 Pure Life Pelligrino Perrier Poland Spring Gerber California Pizza Kitchen Tribe Mediterranean Sweet Leaf Tea

PepsiCo $2,249,661.61 Miss Vickie’s Sun Chips Aquafina SoBe Harvest Crunch Dole Ocean Spray Tropicana Miranda Tazo Quaker Naked Juice Mother’s

Unilever – $467,000 (source) Salada Knorr Ben & Jerry’s


It isn’t all bad news. There are a few companies you can still count on – keep in mind that corporate mergers take place every day. When businesses change hands, there is no obligation to notify the public. One such cautionary tale took place with the company Dean’s, which acquired Horizon foods. They quietly phased out the use of organic products without making any changes to the label and used non-organic milk produced under factory farm conditions. Some of the ones to look for. And of course more at the link:

www.activistpost.com... Generation Amy’s Kitchens Apple and Eve Applegate Azumaya Blue Diamond Bob’s Red Mill Bossa Nova Cal Organics Cedarlane Cell-nique Choice Organic Teas Clif Bar/ Nectar Fruit Coombs Family Farmers Cosorzio All Natural Country Choice Crystal Geyser Alpine Water Doctor Kracker Dr. McDougall’s Dr. Praeger Eat Raw Echo Farms


It's getting so confusing trying to keep track of the spider as you can see. So, how to fight back? Grow your own foods, boycott as much as you can and try not to give your hard earned money over to these Monsters. Is it easy? Hell no. Can it be done? Over time...yes. But only when more and more of us wake up and get on board.

From the Organic Prepper: 50 Ways to Starve The Beast!


Grow your own food (this starves Big Agri and Big Pharma both) Shop at local businesses with no corporate ties Use natural remedies instead of pharmaceuticals whenever possible Homeschool your children Walk or bike instead of driving when possible Get care from naturopaths and healers instead of doctors Make paper logs from scraps for free heat if you have a wood-burning fireplace or stove Boycott all processed foods Shop at local farmer’s markets Boycott corporate stores: Wal-Mart, Costco, Best Buy, Home Depot Give vouchers as gifts for an evening of babysitting, a homemade meal, walking the dog, doing a repair, or cleaning Join a CSA or farm co-op Ditch television (and all the propaganda and commercials) Participate in the barter system – if no money changes hands, no tax can be added Buy secondhand from yard sales, Craigslist and thrift stores Sell your unwanted goods by having a yard sale or putting an ad on Craigslist Repair things instead of replacing them Avoid fast food restaurants and chain restaurants Dine at locally owned establishments if you eat out Brew your own beer and wine Read a book, purchased second-hand or borrowed

More: www.theorganicprepper.ca...

So what have we learned? Some very simple lessons our moms taught us but we have forgotten over time:

1. You are what you eat.

2. Don't put that in your mouth cause you don't know where it's been.

3. You only have one body...don't ruin it.

And so many others like "Stop playing with that or else you'll go blind." Wait, that doesn't fit does it?


Anyways, got rambling but...Back to that App:

itunes.apple.com...

Description: Buycott helps you organize your consumer spending to support causes you care about.


Give it a go and report back. Or if you already have it...speak out.


Peace

I'm almost fully organic fed and fully agree with what this is about
However!
My concern is the App.
Its from Itunes?
I assume (dont use a phone that can use apps) that you have to enter into it the items you wish to know about? thereby providing those on the other end with data concerning your eating habbits? and where you shop?

I dont know about Canada etc but in the uk I by from local organic farmers via their website, and its delivered to my door, fresh and tasty! One vehicle makes about 40 deliveries.
I dont need an app to beat the monsters, and I seriously wonder about where all the data the app provides will end up!

iTunes is just the place to download it. These types of apps are developed by individuals for the most part and then licensed for royalties.

We have the same delivery type of system in Canada for those that are near it. Even my breads from my bakery can be bought from someone that delivers fresh produce from their fruit stand. He put my breads on his list and presto.


Peace

Bread!!!
I spent most of my life thinking bread was a white substance resembling chewed tissue paper

I now get loaves of bread that contain so many seeds and grains etc that they are a meal on there own
there's no way I could go back to that chemicaly bleached garbage. As much as I hate the dairy industry I am addicted to fresh bread thickly covered in fresh non salted butter. Yum.

So when you pick up a head of lettuce at Joes Tasty Lettuce stand,and enter into the app,you are concerned where that data may end up, but think nothing in giving out your address for home deliveries?

Does this not seem odd to you?

And you cant see the difference

My local farmer does NOT pass on my info to third parties! I could go and pick up my produce if I wanted to but as I mentioned above, by sending my order to him I help the environment because he makes one trip in one vehicle to make about 40 deliveries, thats better than 40 people driving to his farm!

As for the app.
Who's receiving the data sent to the app?
Who are they sharing it with?
What do they use it for?
When you take into account that most phones now also send geolocation data, along with the users number, well, thats quite a lot of info to be going to unknown parties, wouldnt you agree?

OMG

Your way overboard on this secrecy thing, paranoid much? what is it like to live so paranoid that when you enter a head of lettuce in an app, your concerned as to where all that "data"is heading.

Someone might know you ate two heads of lettuce this week. LMAO!!!!!

Or

Come to my door, see my home,snoop my yard, get my license plate (If you drive that is)

Different strokes for different folks.

This would be the FIRST app that required all that info, are you sure you not making this all up?

Show me this APP please and I will load it and see what info it requires besides the heads of lettuce you consume.

Oh, you were not home and the delivery man came and just left it at the door, where you good friend from down the road, you know the one, came by and slipped something into it for you, or maybe the cat next door oozed a bit of goo onto it for you.

Who knows, maybe A dood like me will take the "delivery job" oh and BTW, all those things you have asked for, me as the delivery guy knows it all now. Oh and I have a hair piece and herpes, I love to scratch myself a lot and handle your organic delights, cause after all, I am the delivery man.

You dont need to enter all that data, you only need to use the app. Are you not aware of the info that your phone passes on every time you use it?
Are you aware that many large stores extract data from your phone as soon as you walk into them? while its still in your pocket?

If you want privacy then dont use a smart phone, and you'll notice right at the top of this thread I said I dont.

Ok I checked and you have....added me as a friend, strange because when you did that the system sent me a u2u saying you'd added me as a foe.

Can you scan the corn to find out if its gmo.

Just put it on the ground, if it runs away its gmo.

See?

All this GMO stuff you are eating all the time has gone and made you weird.

I don't want to scan the corn, I want to scan my corn, are you having problems reading, as well as imagining I am sending you foe requests and sex toys?

I have owned you now 5 or 6 times in this single thread and now I am growing bored with your banter.

Please just download the OPs APP and get your life straitened out for crying out loud.

Owned

You cant even own your own face for more than five minutes, how many times have you changed you avatar in the last hour?

But your right, my mum told me never to talk to strange people so I'll leave you to play with your sex toys.

This APP does not seem to want to work, Fight The Food Monsters And Boycott The Beast is a good idea in theory but how practical is it?

I think I will maybe just stick to having the odd head of organic lettuce delivered to my door by that weird guy that drives the van, the one with the dirty smelly fingers.
