"There is a force in this country that's out to poison your food, to make it addictive, to manipulate your very body chemistry. This conspiracy wants to keep you overfed but undernourished. Who's behind this conspiracy? The food giants."--Paul Stitt
The swelling ranks of diabetics can consider themselves victims of the Food Giants. BEATING THE FOOD GIANTS by Paul A. Stitt
Beginning in college, I discovered the main interest of food companies is to make foods so that people can’t stop eating them. The last thing they want to do is to make foods so that people are not craving more food all the time.Interview: Paul & Barbara Reed Stitt
Where we, the USDA nutritionists, called for a base of 5-9
servings of fresh fruits and vegetables a day, it was
replaced with a paltry 2-3 servings (changed to 5-7 servings a
couple of years later because an anti-cancer campaign by another
government agency, the National Cancer Institute,
forced the USDA to adopt the higher standard). Our
recommendation of 3-4 daily servings of whole-grain breads and cereals was
changed to a whopping 6-11 servings forming the base
of the Food Pyramid as a concession to the processed
wheat and corn industries. Moreover, my nutritionist group had placed baked
goods made with white flour — including crackers, sweets and other
low-nutrient foods laden with sugars and fats — at the
peak of the pyramid, recommending that they be eaten
sparingly. To our alarm, in the “revised” Food Guide, they were now made part of
the Pyramid’s base. And, in yet one more assault on dietary logic,
changes were made to the wording of the dietary
guidelines from “eat less” to “avoid too much,” giving a nod to
the processed-food industry interests by not limiting highly
profitable “fun foods” (junk foods by any other name)
that might affect the bottom line of food companies.
But even this neutralized wording of the revised Guidelines created a firestorm of angry responses from the food industry and their Congressional allies who believed that the “farmers’ department” (USDA) should not be telling the public to eat less of anything, including saturated fat and cholesterol, meat, eggs and sugar.
I vehemently protested that the changes, if followed, could lead to an epidemic of obesity and diabetes — and couldn’t be justified on either health or nutritional grounds. To my amazement, I was a lone voice on this issue, as my colleagues appeared to accept the “policy level” decision. Over my objections, the Food Guide Pyramid was finalized, although it only saw the light of day 12 years later, in 1992. Yet it appears my warning has come to pass. A Fatally Flawed Food Guide by Luise Light, Ed.D
The true pyramid that Luise and her team developed....... not have starch as the foundation. Instead, it called for a base of a wide
variety of fruits and vegetables, with 5 to 9 servings daily. Whole grain
cereals and grains were recommended in amounts of 2 to 4 servings daily - with
the smaller amount for females and those with less active lifestyles. The real
pyramid that Luise and her team created placed baked goods, crackers, sweets and
other low-nutrient foods up with the sugars and fats at the top of the pyramid,
where they were recommended only as occasional treats.
"But what happened?" Luise wrote, stating that there had been a deliberate, unexplained switch made at the political level that completely distorted the pyramid ...... "Instead of fruits and vegetables making up the base of the diet," she wrote, "the cereals and wheat products were made the base of the pyramid, and the recommendation [for starchy foods] was no longer 2 to 4 as we had determined but switched 6 to 11 servings! We couldn't believe it! What possible rationale could there be for such an unprecedented and unjustified switch? In fact the health consequences of encouraging the public to eat so much refined grain, which the body processes like sugar, was frightening! But our exhortations to the political heads of the agency fell on deaf ears. The new food guide, replacing the 'Basic Four,' would be a promotional tool to get the public to buy and consume more calories, sugar and starch." Ultimately, this would result in a poorer quality diet.
What was given to the public in the 1980s was a pyramid with a foundation based (in more ways than one) on dough. And the American people - with full and innocent trust in the health advice given to them by the government - then attempted to follow the new health-based plan. The result would be profit and gain for some, and the torments of ill health and weight gain for countless others.  Fluoride -The Battle of Darkness & Light by Mary Sparrowdancer
Activating thermogenesis is the most
effective way to lose fat, regardless of the cause. Doing so, allows a
person to burn fat without exercise. Activating thermogenesis can be
done by consuming certain foods or nutritional supplements.
The most important way to activate thermogenesis is by abstaining from sugar (sucrose and fructose), artificial flavors (aspartame and sucralose) and high glycemic index (GI) foods. To further simplify, a person could simply stop drinking soda, this includes diet soda. All of the aforementioned factors block your body's ability to burn fat. As a result, your body only burns carbohydrates while storing fat. I call it a biochemical nightmare. Over time, the nightmare is irreversible and results in what is known as insulin resistance.  Interview of Shane Ellison author of Health Myths Exposed
The public knows very little about nutrition. Instead, it pays attention to the advertisements of the Food Giants. People buy what the food conglomerates make them want. More than 70% of weekday food advertisements time is spent in hawking garbage. 38 To the Food Giants, sales are more important than nutrition. Meanwhile, the customers are being brainwashed — lulled into thinking that because we have a Department of Health and Human Services that approves these processed foods, they must be good to eat. They're tragically mistaken. The time has come for people to start reading labels and paying attention to what they put in their bodies. BEATING THE FOOD GIANTS by Paul A. Stitt
In his fascinating book, "Paradox of Plenty," Harvey Wallenstein give a detailed explanation of the philosophy and growth of the food industry from 1930 to 1990. He lays out in explicit detail the corrupt thinking and proves with thousands of referenced articles how the American food industry has put packaging, flavor, advertising gimmicks, clowns, etc., ahead of the all important reason for eating food — nutrition. "Paradox of Plenty" is a scholarly work that fully indicates the food industry as the super cause of American obesity and runaway sickness costs. I recommend it as a "must read." BEATING THE FOOD GIANTS by Paul A. Stitt
He presented a report that outlined how MSG can affect a fetus before it is even a month old. The placental barrier is not developed and the embryo gets a full dose of whatever chemicals the mother has in her bloodstream. In this first month the brain is forming and glutamate can alter its growth possibly leading to ADHD, and in worse case scenarios, Autism Proof MSG Causes Obesity In Experimental Studies
Well, the Food Giants aren't the only ones getting huge on processed foods — Americans are, too. Americans take in far too many calories and exercise far too little; the result is obesity. Today obesity strikes some three million adolescents and 30 to 40% of all adults. And the problem gets worse as you get older: 60 to 70% of all Americans over the age of 40 are overweight. Obesity is a killer. It is considered one of the primary contributing factors in cardiovascular disease, a scourge which took the lives of 440 of every 100,000 people in the U.S. in 197819 and even more in 1992. Obesity can also lead to hypertension (high blood pressure), atherosclerosis, hernia, gallbladder disease, diabetes mellitus and liver diseases. Researchers also believe that obesity can increase the risk of many types of cancer, including colon cancer, cancer of the uterus and female kidney cancer. In fact, nearly all of the leading causes of death in this country can be traced, at least in part, back to obesity, and the millions who have lost their health to these diseases are victims of the Food Giants. BEATING THE FOOD GIANTS by Paul A. Stitt
The deliberately altered Food Pyramid encourages Americans to consume
as the primary base of their diet, the "Bread, cereal, rice and pasta group:
6-11 servings" a day. The correct, actual and
true suggested servings for whole grain cereals and grains had actually been
capped-off at 2 to 4 servings, maximum, with the 4 serving's level set aside for
larger, physically active males. Baked goods, crackers, etc., had been removed
from the "daily" area, and placed into the "occasional treat" area. The real
suggested base of our diet before the behind-the-scenes switch took place was 5
to 9 servings a day of fresh fruits and vegetables.
My information about the alteration of the real Pyramid has been obtained directly through personal discussions with Luise Light, M.S., EdD., the nutrition expert who was recruited by the USDA to create the Food Pyramid. It was she and her team who actually created the real Food Pyramid.
Dr. Light and her team were later stunned to find that their Pyramid had been completely altered prior to its being given to the unassuming American public. Instead of the fresh fruits and vegetables that the team of nutrition experts had suggested as the base of our diet, the base had been switched to "6 to 11 servings" of starchy foods daily. It was a switch that created a potential windfall profit for industries marketing such refined goods, as well as a windfall profit for those who would profit from treating the problems caused by such a diet.  National Fluoride Database Launched by USDA By Mary Sparrowdancer
Society is being weeded out right now, as minority species are being eliminated very specifically by biological germ warfare and other tactics meant to insure the elimination of those less genetically favourable...Our food is being tampered with, by the insertion of food additives and substances like aspartame. ....They view this as a massive genetic cleanup."--Thanks for the Memories: The Memoirs of Bob Hope's and Henry Kissinger's mind control slave by Brice Taylor p281
Aspartame's effects on the brain led Richard Wurtman, an MIT neuroscientist, to the discovery, as recorded in _The New England Journal of Medicine_ (No. 309, 1983), that the sweetener defeats its purpose as a diet aid, since high doses may instill a craving for calorie-laden carbohydrates.

Are we exaggerating? Fritz went into one fast food restaurant and the cups and placemats had a wizard throwing occult energy balls with occult symbols, the next fast food place had place mats showing the King Arthur story which is an extremely important myth for the Illuminati (the quest for the Grail!), the next fast food place had place mats giving children instructions on how to hypnotize your parents, the next one had a Wizard of Oz theme, and the next one was selling occult movies. Fritz kept these place mats to use in his talks! The Illuminati Formula 12. External Controls
J. Peter Grace was the head of the Knights of Malta in 1963. He is the head of W. R. Grace, and he's one of the largest shipping tycoons in the world, in control of all the shipping in South America. Grace is a powerful man, or was a powerful man......Flynn is head of the Knights of Malta now, down in Florida where there new office is. They moved from New York to Florida, I think Bocca Raton. They have 11 Knights of Malta on the W. R. Grace board. And, of course, guess who owns Taco Bell? W. R. Grace. So now we see W. R. Grace involved in the poisoning of America with fast-food chains, so everybody gets heart disease, clogged arteries, so they can go to bypass surgery and further enrich the medical profession, while carrying out their medical inquisition. Isn't that clear? So not only are they going to kill all of the American people, but they're going to make billions doing it. The Black Pope: Interview of Eric Jon Phelps
But the fact that the government has been involved in illegal narcotics trafficking, literally overdosing our own people, not third world target audiences, as we would expect, I think is important.....The point is that I had personal knowledge of CIA drug-trafficking.....At that time we had knowledge that the CIA was trafficking in illegal narcotics using Air America, which we over there had our own name for. We called it Air Opium.....As a matter of fact I was surprised and pleased to see the movie Air America finally come out because it showed for maybe the only time in history where the Pepsi Cola plant was set up in Laos, not to put mom and pop bottling companies out of business but rather to do the rather more sophisticated steps of taking opium and morphine into number four Asian [heroin] hell.

Patty Crane was found dead amongst a litter of diet Pepsi cans. When her mother, Betty Hayland, who was exposing Patty's "Nutra Death" on TV, came to me to learn the biochemical basis of its deadliness; she, after learning some of the biochemistry, asked: "Dr Bowen, how could such a poisonous chemical ever be on the market?" I answered "Betty! This is organized crime in our government." She became furious with me! "That I should suggest there is organized crime in the U.S. government! What a nut!" A few days later they called and threatened her life. A couple days later two men tried to drag her into a car. She was able to make her escape by breaking free and running. A couple days later her husband Dave, who now has no question that organized crime runs our government, came home and found her shot dead in a puddle of blood on the floor. EPIDEMIC of SUDDEN DEATHS in those EXPOSED TO ASPARTAME By James Bowen, M.D.
Believed they had attained total control over the people; they were dismayed to find their plans threatened by the stubborn independence of the small farmers, the kulaks. Stalin ordered the OGPU to seize all food and animals of the kulaks, and to starve them out. The Chicago American Feb. 25, 1935 carried a front page headline, "SIX MILLION PERISH IN SOVIET FAMINE: Peasants' Crops Seized, They and their Animals Starve". To draw attention from this atrocity, it was later alleged that the Germans, not the Soviets, had killed six million people, the number taken from the Chicago American headline by a Chicago publicist.
The Communist Party, the Party of the Peasants and Workers, exterminated the peasants and enslaved the workers. Many totalitarian regimes have found the small farmer to be their biggest stumbling block. The French Reign of Terror was directed, not against the aristocrats, many of whom were sympathetic to it, but against the small farmers who refused to turn over their grain to the revolutionary tribunals in exchange for the worthless assignats.
In the United States, the foundations are presently engaged in the same type of war of extermination against the American farmer. The traditional formula of land plus labor for the farmer has been altered due to the farmer's need for purchasing power, to buy industrial goods needed in his farming operations. Because of this need for capital, the farmer is especially vulnerable to the World Order's manipulation of interest rates, which is bankrupting him.
Just as in the Soviet Union, in the early 1930s, when Stalin ordered the kulaks to give up their small plots of land to live and work on the collective farms, the American small farmer faces the same type of extermination, being forced to give up his small plot of land to become a hired hand for the big agricultural soviets or trusts. The Brookings Institution and other foundations originated the monetary programs implemented by the Federal Reserve System to destroy the American farmer, a replay of the Soviet tragedy in Russia, with the one proviso that the farmer will be allowed to survive if he becomes a slave worker of the giant trusts.  The World Order Our Secret Ruler by Eustace Mullins
The final statement on the Federal Reserve Board’s causing the Agricultural Depression of 1920-21 was made by William Jennings Bryan. In "Hearst’s Magazine" of November, 1923, he wrote: "The Federal Reserve Bank that should have been the farmer’s greatest protection has become his greatest foe. The deflation of the farmer was a crime deliberately committed." CHAPTER NINE The Agricultural Depression [SECRETS OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE By Eustace Mullins]
One of the principal but little known operations of the
Rockefeller Foundation has been its techniques for controlling world
agriculture. Its director, Kenneth Wernimont, set up Rockefeller controlled
agricultural programs throughout Mexico and Latin America. The independent
farmer is a great threat to the World Order, because he produces for himself,
and because his produce can be converted into capital, which gives him
independence. In Soviet Russia, the Bolsheviks believed they had
attained total control over the people; they were dismayed to find their plans
threatened by the stubborn independence of the small farmers, the Kulaks.

[The Future of Food - Fake
Foods] Investigative Reporter, Pam Killeen interviews
Deborah Garcia about her new movie, The Future of Food.
If these genetically engineered seeds blow onto a farmer’s field, Monsanto could come on their field, test their crops, demand money from them and claim ownership of the crops. The farmer, who probably doesn't want to have genetically engineered seeds anywhere near his field, now has this responsibility. It’s a very strange situation. It seems like Monsanto has all the power and that they don't have any accountability or responsibility. If contamination occurs on an innocent neighboring farm, somehow the innocent farmer has to pay for the contamination. It’s illogical. This is now the way that the system is working. It’s the opposite from what you would imagine..............
in order to determine whether or not these crops would be regulated, both the government and the biotech industry decided that these seeds would be considered “substantially equivalent” to normal seeds. This is simply not true. The reason why they came up with this determination was so that GE foods wouldn't have to be regulated, tested nor labeled.
...One future is industrial pesticides, chemical laden, tasteless food that is heavily processed, controlled by huge multinational corporations for their own benefit; the other future is exemplified by organic farmers who farm and feed people regionally with good healthy food that people can feel safe eating and eat in a sense of community and family. If people really understood what was happening to our food supply, they would choose good, safe, healthy food grown by a local farmer. If we choose to eat this way, we will also benefit by supporting local economies.
