One of every six people on earth is undernourished and many die of starvation. Josette Sheeran, executive director of the United Nations World Food Programme, calls it the “silent tsunami.”
The Worldwatch Institute estimates that 1.02 billion people were “undernourished” in 2009, a 12 percent increase over the previous year. Food riots in 30 countries will not in any way relieve food prices, food shortages and starving people.
All food shortages as well as financial chaos (high food prices) are related to the collapse of the purchasing power of fiat paper money. Starving families with starving children will bring down any social order, including the United States. Food is worth far more than money when it is scarce. A prudent and wise person will store food long before there is a visible need. When starvation begins, it is too late.
(However, the true church mentioned in Revelation 12:13-16 will be provided food supernaturally. “ … And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is NOURISHED [Gk. ‘fatten with food’] for a time, and times, and half a time [3 ½ years], from the face of the serpent [Satan – Rev. 12:9] … “).
Food shortages can be caused by supply problems, food riots, floods, fire, drought, disease or freezing temperatures. If the world was on the gold monetary system, none of the above would cause food shortages. Depreciating paper money does not give incentive to produce abundance.
The Food Crime in America
The American people may be closer to starvation than most of the rest of the world. It is called belly starvation, that is, plenty of “food” but with NO nutrition. Most of the American diet is processed foods mass produced and devoid of nutrition. They are loaded with white sugar or synthetic toxic sweetener like high fructose corn syrup. This system produces mostly fat and sick people.
But what is the big crime?
The greatest food crime in history is the corporate monster Monsanto. Monsanto is the creator of genetically modified foods (GMO), and they have an increasing monopoly of America’s food supply as well as seeds. Soon Monsanto will control all of the food in America if not stopped.
GMO foods are NOT foods; they are artificial clones of nature and very detrimental to our health. There is now a substantial organizational effort to both require that all genetically modified foods in the grocery store be clearly labeled. They also promote organic foods. The name of this organization is “Institute for Responsible Technology,”www.responsibletechnology.org. They have all the gory facts about genetically modified foods.
The active ingredient of Monsanto Roundup is Glyphosafe. This product is contributing to a huge increase in plant sudden death syndrome and also the outbreak of numerous other diseases. More than 30 percent of all herbicides sprayed anywhere contain Glyphosafe product, the world’s best-selling weed killer. It was patented for use in their Roundup brand, which became more popular when they introduced “Roundup Ready” for crops in 1996.
These genetically modified plants, which now include soy, corn, cotton, canola, and sugar beets have inserted genetic material from viruses and bacteria that allows the crops to withstand applications of normally deadly Roundup. Probably Monsanto’s attack upon food products does MORE harm to the American people than an invading army. Corn dies young, Roundup promotes insects and Roundup persists in the environment; it just won’t go away. This causes a loss of nutrition in humans and animals.
When you grocery shop, don’t buy GMO brand products. It will say on the label “Non-GMO brand.” Use the “Non-GMO Shopping Guide,” available for download from www.nongmoshoppingguide.com. Jeffrey M. Smith, who is executive director of the Institute for Responsible Technology, wrote a book, Seeds of Deception, that exposes industry and government lies about the safety of the genetically engineered foods we are eating. His second book documents 65 health risks of genetically engineered foods that Americans eat every day.
