“Certified Organic”: The Conspiracy Against Natural Foods

What does the word “organic” really mean?


adjective \ȯr-ˈga-nik\

(1) : of, relating to, or derived from living organisms<organic evolution> (2) : of, relating to, yielding, or involving the use of food produced with the use of feed or fertilizer of plant or animal origin without employment of chemically formulated fertilizers, growth stimulants, antibiotics, or pesticides <organic farming> <organic produce>

Huh.  That definition doesn’t even mention the word “certified” or “the FDA” or “the United Nations”.  Does that mean those entities don’t actually have to be involved for food to be truly pure and organic? It seems to indicate a method of farming, rather than a regulatory certification.

The major reason that organic food has become so expensive is because of a conspiracy of government intervention, the United Nations and the best interests of Big Agri/Big Pharma. These groups, in all of their benevolent wisdom, decided that a certification process was necessary.  This process is, at first glance, a money grab.  Farmers most follow specific regulations and pay exorbitant fees to get this certification to be able to place a label on their food that says “Organic”.  In fact, commercial use of the term is legally restricted in many countries across the globe.  The government has taken ownership of the concept of natural food.

The concept of “certified organic” goes deeper, though, than a display of governmental avarice.  It’s a weapon in the hostile takeover of the food supply, ala Codex Alimentarius.  Here are a few highlights of Codex, according to a  Natural News article by Dr. Gregory D’Amato:

* All nutrients (vitamins and minerals) are to be considered toxins/poisons and are to be removed from all food because Codex prohibits the use of nutrients to “prevent, treat or cure any condition or disease”

* All food (including organic) is to be irradiated, removing all toxic nutrients from food (unless eaten locally and raw).

* Nutrients allowed will be limited to a Positive List developed by Codex which will include such beneficial nutrients like Fluoride (3.8 mg daily) developed from environmental waste. All other nutrients will be prohibited nationally and internationally to all Codex-compliant countries [2].

* All nutrients (e.g., CoQ10, Vitamins A, B, C, D, Zinc and Magnesium) that have any positive health impact on the body will be deemed illegal under Codex and are to be reduced to amounts negligible to humans’ health [3].

* All advice on nutrition (including written online or journal articles or oral advice to a friend, family member or anyone) will be illegal.

* All dairy cows are to be treated with Monsanto’s recombinant bovine growth hormone.

* All animals used for food are to be treated with potent antibiotics and exogenous growth hormones.

* The reintroduction of deadly and carcinogenic organic pesticides that in 1991, 176 countries (including the U.S.) have banned worldwide including 7 of the 12 worst at the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pesticides (e.g., Hexachlorobenzene, Toxaphene, and Aldrin) will be allowed back into food at elevated levels [4].

* Dangerous and toxic levels (0.5 ppb) of aflotoxin in milk produced from moldy storage conditions of animal feed will be allowed. Aflotoxin is the second most potent (non-radiation) carcinogenic compound known to man.

* Mandatory use of growth hormones and antibiotics on all food herds, fish and flocks

* Worldwide implementation of unlabeled GMOs into crops, animals, fish and trees.

As you can see, the governmental interference seems aimed at making our food supply less healthy, instead of more healthy.

Part of the way they aim to force unhealthy modified food-like substances on the populace is by making the price of pure organic food out of reach for the average person.  In a full frontal media assault, Dr. Oz (who must be on the payroll of Monsanto and Dow) made it sound ridiculous and snobbish to seek these healthier options in an offensive essay published by Time Magazine and analyzed by Mike Adams of Natural News.

“I consider it a public-health service to the consumer who has to feed a family of five or the person who wants to make all the right choices and instead is alienated and dejected because the marketing of healthy foods too often blurs into elitism, with all the expense and culinary affectation that implies.

We know more about the connection between food and health than ever before — down to the molecular level, actually. This has provided us the curious luxury of being fussy, even snooty, about what we eat, considering some foods, well, below our station. That’s silly. Food isn’t about cachet. It’s about nourishment, pleasure and the profound well-being that comes from the way meals draw us together.”

~ Dr. Mehmet Oz

Since making organic food outrageously expensive wasn’t enough to deter a quickly-awakening populace, the blatant propaganda war has begun.

Even more insidious are the armed raids being performed by the FDA thugs in full SWAT regalia, where Mennonite farmers selling raw milk are treated like dirty crackheads cooking up crystal meth in the basement, health food store employees are treated like terrorists and a lady selling natural pet food is literally imprisoned, complete with leg shackles, for nearly six months.  You can see the timeline of these FDA raids here. Many of the victims targeted by the FDA mafia enforcers have been driven out of business.

Does this mean that clean and healthy food will be financially out of reach or unavailable for all of us?  Although that appears to be the objective of the Powers That Be, there are ways around it (in most areas).

First of all – forget about “certified organic” as the pinnacle of clean food.  Look instead of “organically grown.”  This won’t be on the labels, as the FDA has appropriated that word but by definition a food is organically grown if it is grown or processed without any synthetic fertilizers or pesticides.  At this point, the US and Canada both prohibit foods containing GMOs from being labeled “organic” and considering that most genetic modifications are to allow the crop to be sprayed with greater abandon, you are likely to be safe.  Some farmers who use organic growing practices have opted out of the “certified organic” program because of the expense and intrusions.  Focus on how the food was grown, not on what the label says.

Finding out how a food was farmed will require some research and footwork, and you run the risk of the folks at the farmer’s market rolling their eyes at you as they see you come down the aisle with your wagon.

  • Make friends with a farmer. The best way to learn about the origins of your food is to engage in conversation with the farmer whenever possible.  At my old farmer’s market, I struck up a friendship with a couple of the farmers there and was able to learn what had been sprayed and what had not.  I was also able to find out precisely what fertilizers were used, if that was applicable, so that I could research on my own whether or not that food should make it into our larder.  I was able to make informed decisions about my purchases this way. I also made my bulk purchase of beef after making the acquaintance of a Mennonite farmer who used no hormones or antibiotics for his cattle, and allowed them to graze naturally in a field.
  • Join a local farm co-op or CSA.  Co-ops and CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture) generally encourage participation from the recipients of the goodies and many will even allow you to help out, hands on.  (This is also a great way to learn more about growing your own veggies!)
  • Call the company.  If you don’t have a source of wheat, for example, in your area, search for one that ships in quantity.  If you are able to buy directly from the grower, then you can strike up an email or telephone conversation similar to the one at the farmer’s market.  Otherwise, if you are going through a third party, address your questions to them and ask for information about the grower.  You may not be able to get in direct contact with the farmer but a simple internet search can tell you whether GMO seeds are common for a particular crop in that part of the world, what pesticides are approved for use (and their effects) plus other concerns you may have about the purity of your intended purchase.  It’s time consuming, but far better than blindly buying a package off the shelf of your grocery store.
  • Grow your own.  You can grow an amazing amount of produce on a quarter acre city backyard and when you grow it yourself, you are in control of the food from seed to plate.  Forget flowers – grow food.  (In some places, unfortunately, city officials have frowned on front yard vegetable gardens to the point of bulldozing them – check your local ordinances and perhaps engage in some stealth vegetable gardening that look more ornamental.) Even growing salad greens and sprouting seeds and beans in your kitchen windowsill will cut down your reliance on the grocery store offerings.
  • Buy seasonally.  If you are purchasing from the organic section in your local grocery store, you’ll pay the lowest price for foods that are currently in season.  So instead of looking for Brussels sprouts in April and asparagus in December, plan your menu around the items in season.
  • Preserve food.  Along the same lines of buying seasonally, buy in quantity.  During tomato season, purchase a bushel and spend a day or two in the kitchen canning spaghetti sauce and salsa to brighten up a cold winter day with a taste of summer.  Use techniques like cold-cellaring for root vegetables and apples purchased in the fall.  Dehydrate organic produce that is on sale at the grocery store.  This way, you can look to your pantry first when out of season items are desired.
  • Buy in bulk. Purchase items that you’ll use often in bulk quantities.  It’s a big outlay at the time of purchase, but I recently spent $250 and got enough organic wheat and sugar to last my family at least a year.  The same items bought “as-needed” at the grocery store would add up to nearly $700. Be sure to buy items that you’ll use, though – there’s nothing sadder than watching food spoil because no one wants to eat it.  Also, repackage the food carefully for long-term storage.  (You can learn more HERE.)

Focus more on organic growing practices than on a government stamp of approval when selecting foods for your pantry. Just because something is not labeled “organic” doesn’t mean it wasn’t organically grown. Educate yourself about good, better and best options.  This will allow you to ignore the propaganda machine that is churning out disinformation and scorn, because you will have done your own research and formed your own opinions on what is safe and healthy.

How do you save money while still providing safe and healthy options for your family?

    All of the sudden I have a taste for some wild venison. That’s as good as organic gets!

    • superdave:-)

      Totally agree. Also raising your own chickens for eggs and meat is something everyone who can, should be doing.

  • Mike

    Was at albetsons last night and my daughter found organic kiwi,
    As soon as a grabbed one the produce manager came
    And said oh these others are much cheaper you should get them
    Instead, my reply , yo mean a can save money and
    Poison my family. No thanks

  • Mike

  • Mike

    I guess my point is we are under attack from the highest
    All the way down to the lowest level.

    18 months gmo free and proud as can be.

  • Whatever happened to “if people want something they will come knocking on your door.“ Now it id people knocking on your door for things you do not need or want.

  • ron

    hey mike, great, good for you, keep it up.

    i guess they want everyone to eat [ gmo ] poision
    and keep the good things for themselves?

      That is likely – UN Prop 27, is it? Population control is the objective, but it’s hidden under pretty lies like ending war by controlling gun trade, ending hunger by classifying nutrients (viatmins and minerals) as toxins, and increasing the amount of GM and irradiated food we eat, in the name of “health.”

      Bend over, it’s for your own good… BOHICA…

      Until the 99% wake up – and I am part of that 99% meme, even in the top 10% of earners – don’t fool yourself, the OBJECTIVE is to reduce us all to servitude one way or another. Deny food, limit medicine, license physicians (to control who gets in and what they learn and what advice they give), and employ the “american dream” and debt slavery, and you get a nice “underclass” complete with “haves” and “have nots” for class warfare; set the people against each other, teach them lies instead fo truth, deny the morality of religion, destroay commonalities… Keep the people divided, weak, and stupid, and unable to resist.

      These idiots enver realize, human nature ALWAYS wins, it’s the nature of the beast. (Wonder if there’s a clue to the next wave of “adjustments” in the chemistry of the flu vaccines that are being pushed everywhere, on everyone they can? Trying to alter the human genome, perhaps? Notice the changes in our dreams and aspirations as a culture – Space and the Moon / Star wars, Star Trek, Lost in Space; to, Reach out to Muslims as the mission for NASA. Maybe Deus Ex is closer to the truth, only the objectives are to weaken the brain and soul first, THEN implant augmentations or nanotech or retroviral DNA re-sequencing? And try to make humans love their subservience? Not new, either, remember the Hitchiker’s Guide to the Universe, the Restaurant at the end of the world, was it? Sentient animals that WANTED to be food for someone… Ideal slaves.

      I know it sounds crazy, but for some incsonscionable reason, those in power think they have a DIVINE RIGHT to lead. Divine right of kings / pharoahs / mullahs / priests. And extending it – look at the outreach programs and CAIR’s control of school textbooks, et al. Maybe it’s NOT so crazy, after all – or maybe it’s completely paranoid or impossible, BUT WHY TAKE THE CHANCE? Question and keep control of your own life. And your own body. The potential for misuse is immense, and the likelihood of misuse is basically infinite. Like a kid with a new toy, MUST play with it… GI with a new gun, MUST shoot it… 😉

      If nationalists around the world don’t step up and enforce their domestic hegemony soon, they won’t have the capacity to. Germany for Germans; Australia for Australians (Aboriginal or not); America for Americans. As an example: Blacks in England, from what I know – consider themselves BRITISH. Not Black-British or Black-United Kingdomers, but BRITISH, no qualifier. How about Germans and Irish and Polish and Italians and Malaysians and Cambodians and Spanish and Austrians and Urkanians and … … … … And Americans and Mexicans and Canadians just BE OF THAT NATION? Make a common heritage, and ENFORCE the sameness, and the DIFFERENTNESS of themselves to others. for example, a Hawaiian and a New Jerseyan should have more in common than dividing them, but also be MORE ALIKE than a German would be to either of them. And shouldn’t be affected by skin color, either.

      I fear it’s eventually going to have to come to violence, and by the time it does, it’s going to be messy, bloody, anarchistic, brutal, war in the streets.

      And I will have to live through it, and likely if I have children, so will they…
