“The ban on the cultivation of GM maize MON 810 was overdue. He put the GM-free agriculture and beekeeping,” said Kirsten Tackmann today’s decision by the Federal Agricultural Minister Ilse Aigner, the cultivation of genetically modified maize MON 810 in Germany to ban.
The agricultural spokesperson of the group the links:
“Minister Aigner was the legitimate protests and concerns no longer ignore. The ban on MON 810 maize shows that if extra-parliamentary actions associated with a parliamentary pressure, can policy be changed. Scientific concerns about the GM maize is not only a short time, but have been used for years presented. Therefore also reject four out of five consumers the use of agro-genetic engineering from. Under this pressure, the arguments had to the federal agriculture minister to respond and the bustle of a few at the expense of many an end.

Toronto Star: The CEO of Maple Leaf Foods Inc. says he “feels good” about the progress in restoring consumer confidence following last year’s massive recall of packaged meats after some were found to be tainted with deadly bacteria.
Although Maple Leaf posted a significant loss in the three months ended Dec. 31, chief executive Michael McCain said today the company was making “material progress” in winning consumers back to the fold with improved food safety procedures.
“We feel good that we’ve made very material progress in our volume, we feel good that we’ve made great progress in recovering consumer confidence and our corporate reputation, we feel good that we’ve built these food safety standards as rigorous as they are … into our supply chain and our products,” McCain said today in an interview with The Canadian Press.
I’m glad he feels so good because you really have to wonder how much confidence Maple Leaf Foods enjoys with today’s announcement that they have recalled hundreds of cases of wieners that did not complete all testing for the listeria bacteria. Hmmm… so much for restoring confidence in Maple Leaf Foods.
New York Times: Ever since the Nobel Prize-winning biochemist Linus Pauling first promoted “megadoses” of essential nutrients 40 years ago, Americans have been devoted to their vitamins. Today about half of all adults use some form of dietary supplement, at a cost of $23 billion a year.
But are vitamins worth it? In the past few years, several high-quality studies have failed to show that extra vitamins, at least in pill form, help prevent chronic disease or prolong life.
The latest news came last week after researchers in the Women’s Health Initiative study tracked eight years of multivitamin use among more than 161,000 older women. Despite earlier findings suggesting that multivitamins might lower the risk for heart disease and certain cancers, the study, published in The Archives of Internal Medicine, found no such benefit.
Last year, a study that tracked almost 15,000 male physicians for a decade reported no differences in cancer or heart disease rates among those using vitamins E and C compared with those taking a placebo. And in October, a study of 35,000 men dashed hopes that high doses of vitamin E and selenium could lower the risk of prostate cancer.
Codex Alimentarius will go into global implementation

Until vitamins and all natural remedies are outlawed as “medicines” and big pharmaremedies market. It is only a matter of time before more homebased activities like cultivation are outlawed by International Treaty. In 1994, the UN Food Codex (Codex Alimentarius) declared nutrients as toxins, dangerous industrial poisons!
