You do not have a fundamental right to grow or eat healthy food, says FDA. It is a privilege!

By Michael Smith (Veshengro)

fda-logo_web1 The US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has stated categorically, and in legal terms, that the people have no fundamental right to to grow or eat healthy food. According to the FDA it is a privilege and not a right.

This, at least, is the way, I think, we have to interpret the ruling made as regards the raid on the Rawesome Food Club raid, when we see the following statements released by the Food and Drug Administration regarding the raid.

NB: ‘Plaintiffs’, in the text below, refers to James Stewart, Rawesome’s founder, Sharon Palmer, owner of Healthy Family Farms, and Victoria Bloch. The trio were charged with the production and sale of unpasteurized goat milk, goat cheese, and other products; and with “mislabeling cheese.” They were also charged with four counts of conspiracy to commit a crime.

According to the FDA…

“Plaintiffs’ assertion of a new ‘fundamental right’ to produce, obtain, and consume unpasteurized milk lacks any support in law.

“There is no ‘deeply rooted’ historical tradition of unfettered access to foods of all kinds.”

“Plaintiffs’ assertion of a ‘fundamental right to their own bodily and physical health, which includes what foods they do and do not choose to consume for themselves and their families,’ is similarly unavailing because plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to obtain any food they wish.”

If the above statements released by the FDA does not freak any of the readers out totally then I do not know what's wrong with everyone.

Seeing that they seem to be able to, legally, state that all Americans do not have a “fundamental right to their own bodily and physical health, which includes what foods they do and do not choose to consume for themselves and their families” is nothing short of downright dictatorial. In fact it is dictatorial.

Apparently the powers that be can decide what we may or may not eat, even if we grow this ourselves. They may even, as has been seen recently also in several places in the USA and in Canada, prevent us from actually turning our backyards (and out front yards) over to food growing.

If the Constitution does not protect the American sovereign (remember that is what you are meant to be and not a citizen) with respect to what you choose to eat or not eat, then it is a useless document, and it is useless because it would appear that those who rule over the USA have no reason to abide by it. Then again, as a sovereign you should have no one rule over you at all, bar, maybe the Lord G-d.

America and Americans, you have a problem and a serious one. Not that we in the EU have less of a problem or problems but...

The problem is everywhere and it is the people who simply are too lazy to think and act for themselves and demand that government do it all for them. By doing that we have allowed the rulers to become dictators by all but name.

It is time that we all – everywhere – took power back into the hands of the people and away from the professional politician who, all too often, is in the pay of big business such as Monsanto and the oil companies, etc.

That, however, will mean that we, the people, actually have to do things for ourselves and that we also will not longer be able to demand that government does this and that for us “because we are entitled to it”, as is so much the attitude today.

If statements such as this one are not serving as a wake-up call to all of us them I really do not think that we will ever be free again.
