Monsanto is having some issues at the moment, and they are long overdue.
From National Geographic to Dr. Oz, the known health dangers of many Monsanto products are finally being exposed.
Who wins? You, the consumer.
Who loses? The Big Corp stockholders and executives; their yearly bonuses are declining.
Pepsi® Drops Aspartame
In a sudden and very significant move, Pepsi is finally dropping aspartame as an ingredient in Diet Pepsi.
By August 2015, aspartame will be removed from every Diet Pepsi brand, including the regular products, its caffeine-free alternatives, and Diet Pepsi Cherry.
Bottles and cans will be labeled “now aspartame free.”
Coca-Cola still uses aspartame in its Diet Coke soft drink line, and hasn’t announced any plan to phase out aspartame. My guess is they will watch Pepsi’s sales closely, and ditch aspartame if their Diet Coke sales continue to go down.
There are various reasons for this decision, and they are all circulating throughout mainstream and alternative media channels; but at the end of the day, the truth about the dangers of aspartame are being exposed. The companies have to bail out eventually, especially in hopes of avoiding future lawsuits.
Believe me, all of the soft drink companies that have used aspartame for decades have been fully aware of its proven health dangers. Yet for decades, they continued to advertise aspartame as safe and healthy.
They have been aware of aspartame’s harmful effects on a fetus. They were also aware of aspartame’s adverse effects on diabetes, and that aspartame causes weight gain.
Can you say misleading and false advertising?
Monsanto Attacks Dr. Oz
Dr. Oz has been under fire for making public remarks about the agricultural industry’s use of GMOs and pesticides. Monsanto is on the war-path now, and is launching its all too familiar smear campaign against Oz in hopes of diverting attention from the truth.
Dr. Oz has boldly drawn national attention to Monsanto’s glyphosate scam. Most people in the know are aware that this over-used, nonselective systemic herbicide is deadly, especially to bees and other pollinating insects. Glyphosate (trade name: RoundUp®) is sprayed on factory farms, in public parks, and in neighborhood yards and school playgrounds.
Heading Towards Extinction
Common sense and old-fashioned environmental awareness tells us that the over-use of toxic pesticides and herbicides is unhealthy.
No one expected that the dependency of using RoundUp/glyphosate to keep GMO crops alive would result in the extinction of species.
I frequently write on my environmental blog that sadly, our planet’s crucial pollinators are dying at the hands of today’s pollutants and GMO farming practices.
Heavy pesticide and herbicide use started in the 1980s, but today’s herbicides are causing the local extinction of bees.
GMOs and their dependency on toxic pesticides like glyphosate will seriously cause the extinction of many species on Earth – including human extinction if we lose our pollinators.
Please take this seriously.
It All Comes Down To Money
Monsanto’s political supporters and medical team members are focused on Dr. Oz’s comments against genetically modified foods, GMOs.
Some of the doctors trying to discredit Dr. Oz work for nonprofit groups that support GMOs, and many have received money/contributions from Monsanto.
The politicians supporting Monsanto, such as Hillary Clinton, have benefited from millions of dollars in “campaign contributions and charity contributions” from Monsanto.
Dr. Oz has let the genie out of the bottle, and says that he will not be silenced, and that he’s going to keep fighting for your right to know what’s in your food.
We live in an exciting time these days because the mis-information that has been duping consumers for decades is finally breaking down.
We still have a long way to go before the toxins destroying our world are gone, but let’s hope that we are now returning our world to normal.
