Kellog’s using GM ingredients

Fuel vs Food

(NaturalNews) The Organic Consumers Association (OCA) has called for a boycott of the Kellogg Company, also known as Kellogg’s, after the company refused to sign a pledge refusing to use genetically modified sugar in its cereal products.

Sugar from genetically modified sugar beets hit the U.S. market for the first time this year, making the beets the first genetically engineered crop to enter the U.S. food stream since the widespread introduction of modified corn and soy in the 1990s. The sugar has been modified by the Monsanto Corporation to be resistant to the company’s signature herbicide, Roundup.

“These GE sugar beets do not provide any environmental, nutritional or food quality benefits whatsoever,” the OCA said. “They are created by Monsanto to withstand massive doses of herbicides and keep farmers on a never ending pesticide treadmill that is bad news for rural communities, the environment and consumers. The bottom line is that there are numerous options to GE sugar beets.”

More than 73 food producers and retailers have signed a pledge not to use genetically modified sugar in their products. When asked by the OCA to make such a pledge, however, Kellogg’s said it had no intention of doing so. While the company will make sure not to use modified sugar in any of its European products — the European Union has not approved sugar from the beets for human consumption — Kellogg’s insists that U.S. consumers do not care if their food is genetically modified.

“However, poll after poll have demonstrated that Americans want GE foods labeled and restricted,” the OCA said.

The OCA said that it decided to launch a Kellogg’s boycott only after the company refused to heed more than 15,000 letters asking the company not to use the modified beet sugar. In addition, the company clearly has the logistical ability to avoid genetically modified sugar, since it is already doing so for its European products.

R.I.P – Albert Hoffman (1906 – 2008)

30 04 2008

Fellow Psycholics,

I was just informed about the death of Dr. Albert Hoffman…

One thing which always amazed me about him was that he never lost sight of his quest for knowledge and scientific inquiry even though he had crossed all borders of human consciousness. Somehow he rededicated his brilliant intellect to benefit humanity.

I guess in many ways he has blown our minds which is not a bad thing but not always a good thing either :-p

Incidently, Bicycle day (The day he intentionally dosed himself with LSD) was celebrated just sometime ago (April 19th)

And to think he gave us the gift of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds while trying to develop a relief medication for headaches !!

For those of you who havent yet read “My problem Child” authored by Hoffman… try and do so when its possible.

His spirit will live on… and who knows maybe in another lifetime he will cross our paths!

“Today a new sun rises
Look in the mirror
there’s no surprises
Things ain’t what they used to be
Cary Grant’s on L.S.D.

If I only had time
I’d think of the perfect crime
If I only had time
I’d think of the perfect crime

It’s the only way to be
From here to eternity
Things ain’t what they used to be
We’re living under a false economy

If I only had time
I’d think of the perfect crime
If I only had time
I’d think of the perfect crime

A million mums are hooked on valium
And you should see what you
have done to them
Things ain’t what they used to be
A generation raised on poverty

If I only had time
I’d think of the perfect crime
If I only had time
I’d think of the perfect crime
