Corpo-government prostitution

I got quite angry after my previous post, which prompted me to research a little more into the subject of beverage additives. I found out that the beverages industry and some health organizations have been well aware of the dangers of certain additives since the late 80’s but never told the public! At the time nothing was done because …the beverage industry told the government it would handle the problem and the FDA [Food and Drug Administration of US] thought the problem was solved.

This makes me wonder… how many times does any government assume for 16 years that someone is following their promises about something that is affecting the health of (and maybe even killing) millions of people worldwide? Apparently this isn’t unusual if you are a corporation.

Also, which government would trust its own citizens if we all said – “don’t worry govy, I know I’ve been a bad boy but I promise promise promise that I’ll pay my taxes next week.” – erm… none that I know!

So I ask, why do governments seem to trust the mega huge corporations that run the world today?! Oops, maybe the answer is in the question itself.

E211 additive switches off parts of DNA

•28 May 2007 • 1 Comment

This weekend The Independent newspaper reported on a recent soft drinks research, which reveals some brands may cause serious health damage.

“Research from a British university suggests a common preservative found in drinks such as Fanta and Pepsi Max has the ability to switch off vital parts of DNA.

The problem – more usually associated with ageing and alcohol abuse – can eventually lead to cirrhosis of the liver and degenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s.

Concerns centre on the safety of E211, known as sodium benzoate, a preservative used for decades by the £74bn global carbonated drinks industry. Sodium benzoate derives from benzoic acid. It occurs naturally in berries, but is used in large quantities to prevent mould in soft drinks such as Sprite, Oasis and Dr Pepper. It is also added to pickles and sauces.” ~ in The Independent

Make sure you make a mental note of E211 right beside aspartame and mono sodium glutamate.

It’s not the first time I have heard about one consciousness shared by all humanity but this is the first conference that I’ve heard of that discusses it. The following is a clip of the conference entitled “Wisdom and Science in a Dialogue: The New Planetary Consciousness” that took place in Düsseldorf, Germany from March 23 to 25, 2006.

The Master of Lightning

Sometimes I think about the people that have contributed to humankind’s evolution, either with their courage and determination or with their unbounded creativity. One of the men, of recent history, that is rarely given due credit for how much he modernized the way we live today is the inventor Nicola Tesla (1856 – 1943).

Tesla, the electrical engineering genius, had over 800 patents most of which are still undisclosed today. One of his most remarkable inventions is the very thing that enables you to read these lines right now, the alternating-current. Tesla had plans to broadcast electricity wirelessly worldwide but his project was dismantled when the US government discovered that electricity could not be metered this way.

To find out more about the incredible inventions of this man watch the PBS documentary – Nicola Tesla – Master of Lightning. Or The Secret of Nicola Tesla to which the following clip belongs.

Docutrailer – America: Freedom to Fascism

•17 May 2007 • Leave a Comment

Last week’s Docutrailer was from the documentary America: Freedom to Fascism by Aaron Russo. He starts the film by investigating the legality of the Income Tax in the United States and ends up uncovering a huge can of worms that will make Americans (and the rest of the world) furious when they find out.

If you thought that Michael Moore‘s Fahrenheit 911 was shocking, wait until you watch this one.
