The EyeOpener Report- How to Boycott Big Food

BFP VideoThe modern supermarket is less and less a place to purchase food for the household and more and more a warzone where shoppers have to negotiate a minefield of toxic chemicals and additives. From processed foods with their string of unpronounceable ingredients to the "fresh fruits and vegetables" saturated in pesticides to meat and dairy products from industrial farms where animals are raised on a diet of growth hormones and animal waste to the ever-present and ever-growing danger of GMO contamination of nearly everything, feeding healthy, nourishing food to your family is quickly becoming difficult, if not impossible, through the industrial food system.

Find out more about what you can do to escape the Big Food monopolization of our food supply in this week's EyeOpener Report with James Corbett.

  1. I just co-hosted a conference this weekend with Ira Wallace of Southern Exposure Seed Exchange. Our local farmers and extension agents are taking her message to heart. If you decide to go after Monsanto which owns 60% of the world’s market for seeds, do not become a 501-3c. There is a little clause in there that will prevent you from speaking openly. Ira confirmed this little known fact.

  2. Rose Mary says:

    “Perhaps the worst part of this phenomenon is that, as specialist stores begin to cater to the demands of their economically comfortable clientele for fresh and organic foods and ingredients, it is the poorest members of societ y who are increasingly targeted by these health hazards.”

    This was a bit pessimistic. If one is wealthy (I known some ones) you will probably eat the same junk as the poorer ones – example dining out with fried fish/meat (= carcinogenic)

    It has been said – living on dog food will be better

    We can eat healthy at low cost:

    – fresh water every days
    – 1/2 teaspoon of salt
    – green tea – it can be ginger
    – green juice every day (cost some money)
    – no sugar, no wheat, no pasta, no french fries
    – minerals (what that is was a suprise to me)

    Our body is such a wonder it can fight pollutions itself, by not without fresh water, salt and minerals

  3. What kind of salt do you prefer, Rose Mary?

  4. Rose Mary says:

    Himalaya salt is best, but any salt is better than no salt.
    Forgot to mention the marvellous coconut oil. Eat to live, not Live to eat.

  5. Thanks

  6. sorry but I have gardened my whole life, and am trying to do it right now… got some beans… but tell you one thing… it is not easy to get much out of this little plot. The water table is too low, and the soil is too poor, and tell you what… nobody would ever live off the land in this poor hill country.

    I am curios about what “food” for plants is

    That will be:
    – soil?
    – water + micronutrients?
    – cowshit?
    – wood ashes?
    – powder for rocks?

  8. oh ballongi… I made raised beds, and all it did is that the water went down faster and it was a bust!

    I have tried all of the tricks in the garden, and I am defeated in the end! Bust. Zuccini isn’t doing jack this year
    and tomotoes only so so..

    The soil is rotton… the water table is way down down/low

    If you would like to know what to invest your money in… put it into WATER.

  9. Hi Rose Mary, I agree it is a good question about what is good food for plants…

    I tell you one thing, back in the day.. I put a fish in the garden, and the plants really bloomed!

    I have a plan… there are an exotic fish here in the bay area, a terrible fish which is a predator of the native fishes such as was… called the “Striped bass”… it is a horrible fish, but what if I went out there and caught a few hundred pounds of that, and put it into my garden….. get the drift?

  10. @ed Here are a couple of solutions that work in my area. Get rain washed seaweed, or collect above high water mark. Excellent mulch that breaks down to add trace minerals and prevent evaporation. Water harvesting is a good strategy: rain barrels off the roof, bunyip to landscape terrain, infiltrate water with swales, multiple story cropping. There are a ton of solutions.

    Hey, have you seen Leuren Moret’s YouTube videos 2 years after Fukushima? I wonder why James never talks about this? I read that the radiation drift is affecting California. Notice anything?

  11. Rose Mary says:

    I know nothing about these things myself, but I am willing to learn http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wso_GcUdkcw
    Applied on my property, we have a waterfall = power during the summer. My idea is to create a fish tank and a small greenhouse .. and some way to create compost, that may produce some heat? Seems high tech to me -> research. When there is lack of water – fruit trees? (that will be long term planning)

  12. Simon you are right in your comment, of course sea weed is a good fertilizer… my ancestors in North Norway did that too. But I think that going out there and harvesting these bastard Striped Bass, planted here from the East coast, and they are hungry mfrs… I bet that would be a plan. put fish into the garden… by the way, that is a really important concept if you like to study ecology… The salmon, are recycling various micro nutrients back into the inner continential areas through rivers… as they return to the head waters and give up their bodies to the inland area. That reintroduces things like Phosphorus, and others, which are always being sloughed off and deleted from the lands…

    Rose Mary is tuned in with this stuff too…

  13. @Rose Mary:

    I have done compost piles for years, one of the problems is that it seems to bring ants, and rats and so on, so the compost pile is better if you put a cage of wire, that won’t stop the little Argentine ants though, but those ants are a real problem and one that doesn’t get enough notice! Those little black bastards… are terrible, they came up here from the South America and they like other things are here to stay.

    I don’t think anybody wants to hear about the Argentine ant problem, trust me, they are horrid. they killed my chicks who hatched in my compost bin,

    Now here in this area, we just give the compost materials into a green bin for the garbage co. and they make compost… really they make it better than we could ever do at home!!

    It needs to be done where it gets to a good heat/tempature… that kills the bad stuff like seeds and etc.

    All /and all it’s one good thing that has come along, garbage co compost, I am on board with that 100%
