Coca-Cola Just Paid $1,000,000 To Keep This Hidden From You

Apparently Coca-Cola thought that allegedly illegally laundering money through the Grocery Manufacturers’ Association would keep their involvement a secret.

Coca-Cola has been having a rough time. The company owns Honest Tea, Odwalla, Powerade, Vitamin Water, Simply Orange, and other products marketed to health-conscious consumers. But it is best known for making Coke, a product that is utterly devoid of nutritional value and is often blamed for contributing to the obesity epidemic — an epidemic that is costing hundreds of billions of dollars and causing hundreds of thousands of deaths each year.

With demand for the company’s carbonated and artificially flavored sugar water declining, hope for Coca-Cola’s profitability has been increasingly resting on the brands it markets as healthier alternatives. Bloomberg.com reports that sales of Coca-Cola-owned brands like Honest Tea, Powerade, and Simply Orange are the company’s new profit center.

But there’s a problem.

In October, campaign finance reports revealed that Coca-Cola had secretly contributed more than a million dollars to the fight against GMO labeling in Washington. It took the state’s Attorney General suing the Grocery Manufacturers’ Association (GMA) for what turned out to be an $11 million violation of the state’s campaign finance laws to reveal these secret contributions. But now that the truth has been exposed, some healthy food activists are fighting back.

Andrew Kimbrell, founder of the Center for Food Safety, comments:

Consumers of healthy beverages want to know what’s in their food. By using money from sales of natural brands to secretly fund an anti-choice agenda that deprives consumers of the right to know what they’re eating, Coca-Cola has been betraying the public interest and standing on the wrong side of history.
We at the Food Revolution Network agree. And we have launched a petition on Change.org that calls for Coca-Cola to stop funding anti GMO labeling campaigns. Check out and sign the petition here.Coca-Cola’s CEO, Muhtar Kent, says, “We have… provided a tremendous amount of choice to people.” But when it comes to the right to know if your food was genetically engineered, Coca-Cola would apparently like to keep you in the dark. According to reports, Honest Tea co-founder Seth Goldman said as recently as September that “after internal discussions,” Coca-Cola wouldn’t be “directly” funding efforts to defeat I-522. Apparently Coca-Cola thought that allegedly illegally laundering money through the Grocery Manufacturers’ Association would keep their involvement a secret.Honest Tea doesn’t look quite so honest when it’s being used to put an organic face on an alleged money laundering scheme whose goal is keeping you from knowing if your food is genetically engineered.And what makes matters worse, Honest Tea proudly proclaims throughout their website that they are GMO free — while their parent company is actively working to prevent GMO labeling.

I wrote Coca-Cola asking if they intended to continue funding anti GMO labeling campaigns. The company’s response was to repeat the anti-labeling lobby’s talking points. They told me that Washington’s labeling initiative, I-522, would: “Require tens of thousands of common food and beverage products to be relabeled exclusively for Washington State unless they are remade with higher-priced, specially developed ingredients. The measure will increase grocery costs for a typical Washington family by hundreds of dollars per year.”

These are charges that the nine-time Pulitzer Prize winning newspaper The Seattle Times called “mostly false” and that Consumers Union, publisher of Consumer Reports, flatly rejected. In short, Coca-Cola not only tried to hide their contributions to the anti-labeling efforts in Washington, but they continue to try to deceive people about the actual realities of GMO labeling.

And they’re using sales of Honest Tea, Odwalla, Powerade, Vitamin Water, Simply Orange, and all their other brands, to finance their agenda.

World’s Most Hated Hated Chemical Company Monsanto Is About To Disappear Forever In Purchase By Pharma Giant Bayer

The German pharmaceutical company Bayer has been in the process of buying the Monsanto company for more than two years, and the $66 billion deal is finally closing this week.As recognizable as the name “Monsanto” is to its customers, it’s almost better known among its detractors.

The German pharmaceutical company Bayer has been in the process of buying the Monsanto company for more than two years, and the $66 billion deal is finally closing this week.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The Monsanto company is best known for making poisons that kill the environment, kill animals, and kill people like NutraSweet and RoundUp . They have also used Genetically Modified Organisms to manipulate and control the farm crop production in the country. They did all this purely for profit, not caring an iota about the untold tens of thousands of human lives that they have impacted and destroyed. Now aspirin giant Bayer has purchased the company, and what’s the first order of business? Putting the name of Monsanto into the trash, but taking over the Monsanto monopoly on the world’s crop seed, especially that of farmers in America. And don’t forget, Bayer was part of the pharma giant IG Farben in Hitler’s Nazi Germany, and they developed the Zyklon B gas used in the concentration camps, as well as purchasing Jews to use to test experimental new drugs on. All things considered, I guess Bayer buying Monsanto makes pretty good sense. Birds of a feather and all that stuff. 

On Monday, Bayer announced in a statement that it had received all the necessary regulatory approvals to buy Monsanto, and that they would retire the 117-year-old name of “almost surely the most vilified company on the planet.”

“Bayer will remain the company name. Monsanto will no longer be a company name. The acquired products will retain their brand names and become part of the Bayer portfolio,” the statement said.

Acquirers don’t typically change the names of the companies they’re buying when it’s as well-recognized to its customers as Monsanto is, but in this case, it may be the best option. Here’s why.

Agent Orange, DDT, GMOs

As recognizable as the name “Monsanto” is to its customers, it’s almost better known among its detractors. Monsanto was established in 1901 as a chemical business, and has found itself at the center of some of the biggest controversies of the 20th and 21st centuries. The chemical Agent Orange, which was weaponized and demonized during the Vietnam era, was produced under the name Monsanto. The company was also among those that produced DDT, a now-banned pesticide. In recent years, the name has become virtually synonymous with Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) and the target of much of the protest against them.

Watch as Nazi soldiers put Zyklon B gas pellets from Bayer into the shower system in Hitler’s concentration camps

For all the ire Monsanto gets from its detractors, its loyal customers aren’t always happy either. In 2008 when the company pledged to become carbon-neutral by 2021, some of the company’s customers said it was giving in to the government and activists in acknowledging that climate change is even partly man-made.

But is erasing ‘Monsanto’ enough?

From a PR perspective, getting rid of “Monsanto” will make things much simpler. But it’s possible that Bayer hasn’t gone far enough by putting Monsanto to bed. Although Monsanto will be a thing of the past, some of its brand names, which will become part of the Bayer portfolio, draw almost as much controversy as the parent company. For instance, the pesticide Roundup is probably the best-known pesticide among non-specialist audiences. In 2017, California listed its active ingredient, glyphosate, as a chemical known to cause cancer. Later that year the EU parliament voted in a non-binding resolution to ban the pesticide by 2022, though the chemical was later given a new five-year license. source

The world’s biggest hamburger chain has been hit by public perception it serves Frankenfood

McDonald’s has taken the unprecedented step of allowing cameras inside one of its secret food factory’s for the first time in a bid to end the rumors and urban myths about how its Happy Meals and Big Macs are made.

Hurt by years of bad publicity amid claims of ‘pink slime’ chicken nuggets and Frankenfood, the fast food giant is pulling back its veil of production line secrecy to bring more transparency to its customers.

Fighting back: The world’s biggest hamburger chain is confronting unappetizing questions as part of a U.S. campaign to beat back perceptions that it serves Frankenfood

The dramatic move is all part McDonald’s new campaign in which it will bravely invite members of the public to submit any questions they have always wanted to know the answers to about their food.

The world’s biggest hamburger chain is confronting unappetizing questions as part of a U.S. campaign to beat back perceptions that it serves Frankenfood. The company has run similar campaigns in Canada and Australia and said Monday it’s bringing the effort to its flagship market.

For its latest campaign, among the first issues McDonald’s addresses are widely circulated online images and videos that show its burgers staying in tact after several weeks or even years. On its webpage, McDonald’s says that’s likely because the food has dehydrated, and that food needs moisture to form mold.

On its website, the company denies that it uses ‘pink slime’ in chicken nuggets, saying ‘No, our Chicken McNuggets do not contain what some people call ‘pink slime’ or ‘pink goop.’

‘We’ve seen the photo of ‘pink goop’ or ‘pink slime’ in association with McDonald’s. Let’s set the record straight: this image in connection with McDonald’s is a myth. In fact, we don’t know where it came from, but it’s not our food. The photo is not a representation of how we create our Chicken McNuggets, or for that matter, any item on our menu.’

However, elsewhere McDonald’s admits on the site that ‘We use a small amount of an anti-foaming agent, dimethylpolysiloxane, in the oil we use to cook our Chicken McNuggets.’

Michelle Obama Teams With Frankenfood Producer Monsanto To Sell GMO To Children

In announcing her support for Monsanto and GMOs for children, the First Lady declared “When I see a company like Monsanto launch an initiative like this, I feel more hopeful than ever before…”

All part of the Obama agenda to collapse America

EDITOR’S NOTE: This story, as originally published, is thought to have been put out there by the Daily Leak as satire. But we leave this story up to illustrate the deadly connection between Monsanto and the Obama administration that has been verified.

“The popular agriculture company Monsanto is partnering with First Lady Michelle Obama to promote nutritional foods for kids,” reports DailyLeak.org. (1) “According to reports from the Associated Press, Monsanto will spend $50 million over five years on a campaign to market ‘healthy’ genetically modified food to children.”

“It’s not clear how a company that’s primarily known for producing seeds and herbicides for farmers is going to nudge children into eating foods the first lady thinks they should be eating,” reports EAGNews.com.

“Details of this deal have been sketchy, perhaps intentionally so. After all, the unholy alliance of Big Government and Big Business is one definition of fascism.”

The “final solution” sellout of the White House?

Michelle Obama once promoted fresh garden vegetables but never quite pushed for organics. With this Monsanto announcement, she’s now reversed all progress on healthy foods and has teamed up with the corporation that produces corn seeds containing deadly toxins linked to massive cancer tumors in rat experiments.

The chemical sprayed on GM crops — glyphosate — is also linked to wildly destructive environmental effects as well as huge increases in human cancer.
