Honey: Nature’s Miraculous Healing Food – But is the Honey You Buy Contaminated by Commercial Agriculture’s Herbicides and Pesticides?
Honey is one of nature's most perfect and beneficial foods. The documented research on the incredible health benefits of honey is truly astounding. If you type in the search term "honey" in the National Library of Medicine on the NIH Government website, you will get 15,480 results from peer-reviewed medical journals. It is the ONLY sweetener on the market that you can purchase that is a complete, whole food, as opposed to granulated sugar which is an extract from either a grass (sugar cane), or from beets (sugar beets). But purchasing real, pure, unadulterated raw honey that is not contaminated with herbicides or pesticides, is another matter altogether. Testing done in 2011 on grocery store honey showed that up to 80% of the honey sold in grocery stores is adulterated and even fake, much of it imported from China illegally. I know for a fact that this is true, because my company, Healthy Traditions, has been importing high quality pure honey from outside the United States for more than a decade, and while we do NOT import honey from China, every single shipment of honey that we have imported goes through an FDA hold to ensure that it is not "honey" that originated from China and is relabeled. It takes us more time to get honey across the border than any other product we import. Honey that is produced in the U.S. and Canada is mostly a by-product of professional bee keepers who make their primary income from leasing out their bees to pollinate crops in commercial agriculture, which are heavily treated with herbicides and pesticides, and the resulting honey from these bees is just a by-product of these commercial bee operations, and that includes most "local" honeys. So what I am going to do in this article is educate you on the numerous health benefits of raw, pure honey, and the lucrative bee and honey operations in commercial agriculture, so that you can be an informed consumer and look for pure, raw honey that is not contaminated. Pure raw honey has been proven through numerous studies to be more effective than drugs in treating many diseases, and since honey can be stored indefinitely and tends to improve with age, like fine wines, this is a food that you want in your long-term food storage plans, and you want honey that heals, not honey that is contaminated, or "honey" that is not even real honey at all.
There is a certain dietary philosophy that has claimed in recent years that humans evolved from "hunters and gathers" and that modern agriculture was a recent development in human history over the last many billions of years, and this dietary philosophy began to condemn ALL grains as not fit for human consumption. The flaw to this belief, of course, is that it accepts Darwinian evolutionary biology as a fact, rather than just a theory about the origins of life. The history of the human race as recorded in the ancient writings of the Bible, however, shows that man was an agriculturist since the beginning, as God created the first man and woman to tend the Garden of Eden, where undoubtedly grains grew. "Gluten" is now blamed for many diseases, so that grains are categorically condemned as an "anti-nutrient" by some modern dietary thinking. Much of this belief comes from the field of laboratory diagnostics, where one today can be tested for "food allergies," and if gluten shows up in your food allergy test, then you are diagnosed as "gluten intolerant" or having an allergy to wheat. However, you might be surprised to find out (or maybe not if you have now become aware of the corruption in the diagnostic testing field such as PCR tests to test for "viruses"), that there is currently no accepted test protocol to determine if one is allergic to gluten. Even if there was an accurate test to see if gluten is floating around in your body somewhere, what would it actually prove? It would only prove that your body is not processing gluten properly, and a just as reasonable conclusion to such a test, if it existed, would be to blame your digestive system for not processing it correctly, rather than blaming gluten. So for most people who believe they are allergic to gluten, it is usually based on the fact that if they eat any products that contain wheat and gluten, like their Krispy Kreme donuts, or their "breakfast of champions" highly processed cereal, and feel sick afterwards, then they must have an "allergy" to gluten. This is faulty reasoning, of course, because there are many factors to look at when one cannot consume highly processed grain products. Most of America's grains, for example, are contaminated with the popular herbicide glyphosate, the active ingredient in RoundUp and the most widely used herbicide in the world, which is now linked to cancer. Glyphosate is known to seriously damage our digestive systems, and our "microbiome." Ever since we found out that our certified organic grains from North America were contaminated, I have searched all over the world to find clean grains that are not contaminated, and focused on ancient grains that had not been hybridized to increase the gluten elasticity so coveted by bakeries to help breads rise quicker. Whole grains are a great investment for food security IF the grains are NOT contaminated! There are probably many places where you can order bulk food for long-term storage, but please make sure you are storing CLEAN and HEALTHY food. This will prove to be invaluable if a crisis hits where it is difficult to find food, and you want to make sure that the food you store will be food that can keep you healthy, and NOT make you sick!
This is Not a “Recession” – This is a Total Collapse of the Financial System to Bail Out the Globalists Who Want to Enslave Us
The severity of the economic disaster facing the United States continues to be minimized if not altogether ignored by the corporate media, as they use very tame words such as "recession" and "bear market" to describe the current financial conditions we are all facing. I have confirmed this week that people are already starting to suffer from high prices on gasoline and rising prices on food, as many food banks across the country are seeing dramatic increases in traffic, while the supply of donated food to many of these food pantries is diminishing. And things are just going to get worse, not better, so there is little time left to prepare for what is going to be the total collapse of the financial system, and the implementation of the Great Reset, which will bail out the Globalist bankers and Wall Street Billionaires and place the rest of society into a slave market, where cash will disappear, and new Central Bank Digital Currencies will be implemented for those who comply with this new system. China is currently further ahead in implementing this new Great Reset than most other countries, as most of its residents cannot travel or participate in the economy without their digital IDs which the government controls. For the rest of this article I am going to include perspectives on the current financial situation and what lies ahead from the alternative media, which is where you need to go now to truly understand what is happening and to combat the propaganda from the corporate media, which is controlled by the same Globalists who are implementing this "Great Reset."
Coffee, one of the most often consumed beverages worldwide, contains a wide variety of compounds, including caffeine, diterpenes, and chlorogenic acid, which fully develop after the bean roasting process and are reported to have an assortment of health benefits. Habitual coffee consumption is associated with the prevention of chronic and degenerative diseases, including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and liver disease. ARIC, a large population study of 14,207 participants aged 45 to 64 years, revealed that higher self-reported daily coffee consumption was associated with a lower risk of incident chronic kidney disease after adjustments were made for demographic, clinical, and dietary factors. Thus, habitual coffee consumption has a strong potential for reducing the risk of progressive kidney disease.
People living in Norway are used to big government. But the latest news coming out of Oslo is a surprising new step down the road of data collection that not everyone is happy with. Statistics Norway (SSB) is the state-owned entity responsible for collecting, producing and communicating statistics related to the economy, population and society at national, regional and local levels. Because everything about an individual living in Norway is linked to their fødselnummer (birth number), SSB already knows where you live, what you earn and what's on your criminal record. However, according to a report by NRK, they now want to know where you shop, and what you buy.
As more and more people in the United States are waking up to the fact that our federal health agencies, such as the FDA and CDC, are corrupt and serve the interests of Wall Street Billionaires and not the public, it is more important than ever to understand the corruption that also exists within the USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture) and their years of bad nutritional advice that has demonized traditional, healthy fats and oils that have nourished populations for thousands of years, in favor of the newer "polyunsaturated" oils which are toxic, and dangerous to your health. These polyunsaturated "edible oils" have only been in the human food chain since the "expeller-pressed" technology was developed during and following World War II that allowed the U.S. to start producing highly toxic and refined "edible" oils from corn and soybeans, two crops heavily subsidized by taxpayers that allows the U.S. to dominate world edible oil supplies. It was in the 1970s that the "McGovern Report" put forward the nutritional dietary advice of a "low-fat" diet that harmed American's health by condemning traditional fats and oils, but brought great profit to Wall Street investors as Americans switched over to hydrogenated toxic polyunsaturated oils derived from corn and soybeans. They used a theory of heart disease commonly referred to as the "lipid theory" of heart disease that stated certain kind of fats, saturated fats, led to higher levels of cholesterol, and therefore higher risks for heart disease. But even from the beginning and the origin of this theory what was stated in the McGovern Report, many scientists disagreed and called the theory bogus. Today, the lipid theory of heart disease has been thoroughly debunked by real science, and yet official government policy on nutrition continues to support it, for political and economic reasons, but NOT health reasons. To admit that they were wrong all these years on dietary oils, cholesterol, and heart disease, would be to admit that the $BILLIONS they earned during that time from popular cholesterol-lowering drugs, was earned fraudulently, and the biggest player in that industry was Pfizer, and their blockbuster drug Lipitor, the best-selling drug all-time before its patent ran out in 2011. So with Pfizer's newest killer drug, the COVID-19 vaccine, injuring the hearts of many people with myocarditis and pericarditis, especially among the younger age groups, it is more important than ever to understand just which dietary oils are actually healthy for the heart, and which ones are not.
While China works hard to suppress what is currently happening in Shanghai and other places in China that have strict lockdowns by deleting social media posts as quickly as possible, some videos and images are being captured and preserved that show how life has become pure hell in Shanghai, with citizens starving to death and being locked down in cages like animals. Deliberate destruction of food is reportedly happening on a large scale, blaming "COVID" for contaminating the food as they use cotton swab PCR tests to test animals like chickens and fish, while reportedly destroying many tons of fresh produce. This week fencing appeared overnight in many places to lockdown people in their homes and apartments, and this even made the corporate news cycle this weekend, with the BBC and the Associated Press covering the story. When you read the corporate news accounts, however, they will give some justification for these actions by reporting on the alleged increase in COVID cases, paving the way for similar measures to happen in the U.S. and other places where maybe the measures will not be quite as harsh as what China is doing, as this is simply a continuation of the massive propaganda media hyping fear over a "virus" that continues to be used to justify medical tyranny and the suspension of all appearances of law and order in the name of the "pandemic." Here in the U.S. people like Anthony Fauci and Dr. Oz, who is now aligned with Donald Trump, have publicly stated that the measures China are taking to lockdown their populations are "working" to stop the spread of COVID, which should be a wake-up call to everyone about what we are probably facing in the near future here in the U.S. and around the world.
I have been warning the public for many years now about how fragile our food system is, where just a handful of companies control most of our nation's food, as well as most of the world's food. Last year I published an article that identified who these globalists are, written by Sam Parker of Behind the News Network, who wrote: “Genocide is an intent of this system, not a side-effect.” There are many indications that food shortages will soon start, from the war in Ukraine to the lockdowns in Shanghai and China, that are putting tremendous pressure on supply chains that will most certainly impact food security across the globe. In addition, it has been widely reported this week in both the corporate and alternative media that there have been a rash of food processing plants catching on fire all of a sudden. But perhaps the biggest indicator that food shortages are on the horizon in the not-too-distant future, was a published FBI warning regarding potential "Ransomware Attacks on Agricultural Cooperatives." If you are looking for a food that can be stored indefinitely and provide security against food shortages, you need to be looking into storing whole grains, such as wheat berries. Whole grains have historically been the best defense against food shortages, because in their unmilled stated, they can be stored indefinitely if stored properly, and then either cooked directly as a cereal like rice, or ground into flour for baked goods. They can also be sprouted for fresh sprouts, or even grown into grass and juiced as "wheatgrass juice," providing a powerhouse of nutrition just from simple grains.
Preparing for a total collapse of society can certainly seem daunting, but there are always things one can do to become less reliant on the world's fragile system, as a system collapse is now imminent. Daisy Luther of the Organic Prepper recently published her "Self-Reliance Manifesto" with hundreds of links that she has collected over the years to resources that will help you become more self-reliant.
Britain's supermarkets are struggling to ensure adequate food supply after reports of panic hoarding due to what the British press calls "ping-demic" - a reference to being "pinged" by the NHS test-and-trace system. We noted on Monday that ping-demic was likely to "lead to food shortages," and that is precisely what is happening today. The Independent reports UK's largest supermarkets are experiencing shortages after the number of people getting "pinged" on the NHS Test and triggered mass confusion. The NHS app sent a half-million alerts last week, notifying users they have to quarantine for ten days because of possible close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19. This has caused a supply chain shock and disruptions as hundreds of thousands of people panic buy food and fuel to survive the quarantine. British newspapers and social media users published pictures of empty supermarket shelves. In the U.S. military officers are allegedly being warned to get stocked up on food and water to be prepared for what is coming.
