“Everyone Knows Someone Who Needs This Information!” (TM)
How would you like to end up in jail for growing your own healthy herbs and vegetables and fruits and maybe for giving some to your neighbor? If you think it’s absurd and will never happen here in the Land of the Free, think again! The bill is in the US Senate now!
Congress is back in session after a late-summer recess, and one one of the first bills they will consider is Senate Bill 510.
This bill imposes draconian oversight on food production.
Undoubtedly fronted and financed by Big Pharma, Big Agriculture and Monsanto – the Frankenfood genetically-modified organism (GMO) chemical giant, it imposes extremely burdensome requirements on thousands of small farmers and food processors, and many of these may be who you depend on for your food, already. In fact, if you shop in Farmer’s Markets or stores showcasing local suppliers, these small food producers might be selling directly to you in your local area.
This bill easily could wipe out the small organic farmer.
But it could be much worse. It aims to take away your right to garden, and to grow your own food!
Conceivably, you could even become a criminal simply for growing herbs and giving them to your friend. We don’t have the full understanding yet of how far the “benevolent” government wants to go in “protecting your food”.
We have to stop this bill. But it won’t be easy.
After the big egg recall, recently, Americans are clamoring for protection by the government.Well, it was US Government inspections which failed to protect us. In looking at the records for that egg farm, there were hundreds of previous violations. Yes, we need to be protected against unscrupulous corporations, of all types, including the ones financing the Bill!
Dr. Robert Rowen, MD says he has” little doubt that the unseen pushers of bills like this are Big Agri which seeks to destroy the small farmer. But they’re not the only ones behind this horrible bill.
My sources say that this bill will remove our rights to own and store seeds and place that otherwise inherent right into the hands of the likes of GMO Frankenfood giant Monsanto.”
In the name of (pseudo) “food safety”, the government could move to promote antibiotics, hormones and GMO Frankenseeds, likely wiping out the small conscious farmer” who uses safer, organic, natural seed.
Bills like this present a great danger to freedom.
Right now, the U.S. Code mandates that the government must find “credible evidence” before launching an attack on a food producer.
The authors of this bill and their minions want to replace that phrase with “reasonable probability.”
Hold on! You don’t need to be an attorney to see where this is heading. Who will be making that determination of “reasonable probability”? Some bureaucrat 3,000 miles away?
Dr. Rowen, MD continues – Might s/he decide that the raw milk which restored your health be removed for “reasonable probability”?
We certainly do NOT need this bill.
Dr. Robert Rowen, MD states: “I’d rather take my chances on a rare outbreak of food bacteria than let the government control what comes to the food stores or what I personally can produce.”
He says, “I can treat the food-borne bacteria. I can’t easily treat pasteurization’s toxicity, Monsanto’s Frankenfood, the hormones, pesticides or other petrochemicals that are dumped into your food in the name of “safety.” ” That says it all.
This is our natural birthright – to garden, to forage and to store our seeds. It is fundamental to our independence and therefore to our Freedom!
Prevent this Power Grab!

And, learn about the actual influence peddling and desire to pressure public health officials and scientists –
Pressure from Big Business
Please call your senators and demand that they stop this bill dead in its tracks. Tell them you want to demand oversight on the use of chemicals, GMO Frankenfood, hormones and antibiotics, and that freedom for you and the small farmer is essential to our Liberty.
Look under US Government in your phone book for your US Senator’s local office, and write to their office at the Capital in Washington, DC by searching for the URL for your 2 senators, online.
If you are outside America, make sure your legislators are not helping these multinational corporations take over your lives, too!
The time is NOW. Don’t sit back and do nothing. Once lost, home-production and small farming will be outlawed!
Having the right to grow your own food is the most basic human right, and it is foundational for your Health, especially as a diabetic! Well cared for home-grown will always be best. Small farm production by a knowledgeable farmer, preferably organic, will always be next best. Both are far superior to the product produced by Big Ag’s factory farms. Period.
And, while you’re at it, tell your legislators to not allow high fructose corn syrup – one of the most deleterious substances in the food supply, and a cheap sweetener for Big Ag – to be allowed a name-change to benign-sounding “corn sugar”. What crafty S.O.B.s they are.
