No man is an island. That goes collectively for systems, agencies and corporations.
The caption reads: “1913, Corn is 100% Farmer Owned. 2013, Corn is 95% Is Corporation Owned; 90% GMOs & Apparently, All Need To Wear HAZ-MAT Suit To Touch It.”
Frankly, far too much of THIS prompts questions of intervention or lack thereof by such agencies as the Department of Agriculture and Center For Disease Control in terms of appropriateness for human consumption and the apparent lack of cooperative partnership with the Department of Agriculture. Further, if logic follows correctly, I believe the Food & Drug Administration is certified and under the Dept. of Agriculture who approves our food.
WHATZ UP WITH THE APPARENT DISCONNECT? And yes, pharmaceuticals should be included in mention under the umbrella of Food & Drug Administration. Continuing, let's not be remiss in discounting the role and responsibility of the American Medical Association who recognizes the impact and adverse health outcomes due to consumption of a long list of products and composition that have continued to be sold across the country with 'mile high' lists of health threats and side affects over long term use. Ladies and gentlemen, it seems elementary that all we need for genuine improvement is dynamic cooperation and communication and planning between these agencies for the beginnings of a stronger America through the quality development and preservation of our human resources rather than retail profit.
Clarified by Orlando Community Advocate, Mr. Clinton Salter,” The oversight, by those same agencies, are intended to set the standards by which all of the industrial food production industries are to conform, subject to "penalty of law" for all violations to agency edicts. These really are vital issues, and are horribly neglected duties, to say the least. Specific inter-discipline monitoring is needed. Real time solutions, should be apart of the health screenings in the various ethnic enclaves, particularly so. Public/ Private sector alliances need to take a pro-active Community Assessment to rectify these harmful abuses, as any Community Health Model master plan would dictate.”
