[NaturalNews] Every two years, a consortium of Europe’s most active minds converges at the Euroscience Open Forum to discuss the latest advancements in scientific research and innovation. But this year’s meeting, which was held in Dublin, Ireland, featured a disturbing workshop held by White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses, who explained and demonstrated to audience members how the food of the future will not actually contain real food, but rather various combinations of lab-created chemicals that mimic food.
As reported on Six One News, a feature of RTE News in Ireland, Yosses and several other food experts showed a live audience how to create various foams, gels, solids, and other food-like textured substances out of chemicals that, when combined, resemble things like lemon souffle and chocolate pudding. These food scientists then shared samples of these laboratory creations with audience members, who were told that the imitation food products are the wave of the future.
“You take the (chemical) compounds and you make the dish,” said Herve This of AgroParisTech, a science and research organization based in France, to RTE News in Ireland. “So you have no vegetables, no fruit, no meat, no fish, nothing except compounds. And you have to create a shape, a color, a taste, a freshness, a pungency, an astringency, everything,” he added, likening traditional cooking methods such as “cracking eggs” and using real food ingredients to “living in the Middle Ages.”
White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses shares a similar sentiment, as he believes creating fake food out of chemicals will actually help improve the quality of cuisine and availability of food. He told Six One News that chefs can use the information he presented to gain a “(better) understanding of what they’re doing and use that to improve the processes, to improve not only the flavor but the hygiene, the longevity, how to store things.”
“All that comes about from understanding cooking on a really molecular level,” he added, with sort of a twinkle in his eye. But when he was asked if these same chemical food experiments are used at the White House in meals served to the Obamas, Yosses laughed and said no, explaining that “the First Family is looking for traditional, sort of ‘happy recipes’ that people are familiar with.”
You can watch the disturbing segment in its entirety at:
While intended to specifically showcase some of the more offbeat scientific developments circulating the “technosphere” today, the Euroscience Open Forum, including the troubling seminar on chemical-based “foods of the future,” is actually a troubling foreshadowing of what may soon come for Americans. Some scientists are apparently of the strong persuasion that man-made food items are preferable to natural foods, and the former is what they hope the public will eventually accept.
The average person, in other words, will eventually be expected to happily eat green gelatin-like blobs made of chemical compounds, along with ambiguous cracker products that resemble “Soylent Green,” while the White House and the world’s other elites continue to eat wholesome, natural foods, including those hand-picked from Michelle Obama’s organic garden.

It doesn’t have to be painful to improve your health, nor does it have to take a lot of time. While we could discuss the specifics of optimum health for what would amount to hours upon hours of reading, there are a few core techniques that you can utilize right now to dramatically transform your health — each of which can easily be done in under 10 minutes. Perhaps even more appealing than the time factor is the additional factoid that each of these methods are extremely simple and virtually anyone can utilize them.
If you really adhere to these 4 super simple concepts, you will be ahead of about 98% of the United States (or most any other developed nation) when it comes to living a natural health lifestyle. Here are 4 ways to radically transform and improve your health and wellness in under 10 minutes:
1. Drink the Right Kind of Water
It’s no secret that drinking tap water is a recipe for disease thanks to harsh chemicals and heavy metals, but what are the alternatives? You may be under the impression that super cheap and low quality filtration systems (think Brita counter top filters) are the answer. Ultimately, these plastic system (which may even contain BPA) do not filter most heavy metals or chemicals. And what about bottled water? Well, it turns out that bottled water is simply expensive tap water thanks to an extensive report into the industry.
Instead of wasting time and money on poor quality alternative to tap water, you have a few options:
- Purchase an atmospheric water generator such as the machines created by the Ecoloblue company (no incentive was given for this recommendation or any other within this article).
- Retrieve fresh and real spring water from near your home with glass gallon jugs which can be found via the website Find a Spring.
- Obtain a high quality reverse osmosis water filtration device and add minerals or Himalayan sea salt back into the water after it passes through the filter.
Each of these options are highly effective, and the Find a Spring option is entirely free. Therefore, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be drinking the right kind of water. Even if you don’t want to drive a short distance away from a spring, a reverse osmosis filter can be purchased for a relatively low price. When it comes to seriously feeling better each day and conquering disease, the value of the product ultimately becomes more apparent. All in all, this simple change will take all of 5 seconds to act upon. It takes even less than 5 seconds to type in your zip code on the spring locator site and decide to change your water habits for life.
2. Add Lemon to Your Water Each Morning
It really doesn’t get any easier than this. Now that you’ve secured a proper water source, it’s time to utilize it. Start your morning each day by squeezing either one half or a full lemon into a glass of warm water, placing a slice into the glass itself after you’re done squeezing.
Tied to both fat loss and stress relief, water with lemon is even used in ancient Yogic and Ayurvedic medicine to cleanse the digestive system. In other words, you can improve your digestion naturally throughout the day by using this simple practice.

Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes at fast food restaurants? Fast-food insiders (i.e. former employees) reveal a slew of nasty secrets that may make you think twice about ever eating in one of these restaurants again …
Black Oil, Blood and “Melted” Chicken
The featured article has quite a few doozies, such as a former worker from Burger King who describes the restaurant’s oil rotation policy:1
“Here is how the oil rotation went. You had four vats of oil that you cooked fries in. And boy did you cook fries. Tons of them. After about 2 days worth, the oil got too dark for fries. So we switched it over to the ones for chicken. Since it was darker, it was ok.
Then that goes on for a week. After a week of massive frying. The oil is black as motor oil. At that point, it’s switched to the Fish Filet vat. That’s the only thing you cook in that vat.”
Another former worker, this one from McDonald’s, recalled what happened when a bag of chicken nuggets was left out on the counter for too long:
“They melted. Into a pool of liquid. I never understood why. But they were completely indiscernible as being the nuggets I once knew.”
Other unsavory confessions revealed by these fast-food whistleblowers include:
- Large chunks of mold in ice-cream machines and ice dispensers (which are rarely cleaned)
- A worker continuing to handle food with an open, bleeding wound on her hand
- “Recycling” overcooked burgers into chili, or stripping chicken patties of their breading and passing it off as chicken salad
Startling discoveries like these are all too common when it comes to fast-food … it was several years back when 12-year-old middle schooler Jasmine Roberts won the science fair at her school when she discovered that the ice used in the drinks of fast food restaurants had more bacteria than the toilet water. And in 2010, nearly half of soda fountains at fast food restaurants tested were found to contain coliform (bacteria that grows in feces) while 11 percent also contained E. coli!2
And Then There’s the Food …
Even under the best circumstances, fast-food restaurants fail when it comes to your health.
Eating the food at nearly every fast food chain (except maybe Chipotle and a few other restaurants committed to sustainable, organic suppliers) means you are likely consuming feedlot animal meat – flesh that comes from animals raised in crowded unsanitary conditions, fed massive doses of antibiotics and unnatural “frankenfeed” full of GM crops and some other truly disturbing ingredients.
This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all the decidedly unhealthy practices that go on at a CAFO (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation). The problem begins at the massive CAFOs where the beef, chicken or pigs are fed genetically modified corn and soybeans and excessive grains in general (which are not the natural diet of these animals), along with the following almost unbelievable feed ingredients:
- Plastics — for the many animals whose digestive systems need roughage to pass food through them, the CAFOs now use plastic pellets.
- Meat from members of the same species — CAFOs turn farm animals into cannibals. Scientific research has linked this practice to the spread of both mad cow disease and avian bird flu.
- Manure and animal feces– this can include cattle manure, swine waste, and poultry waste. It also includes wood, sand, rocks, dirt, sawdust and other non-food substances.
- Roxarsone — more commonly known as arsenic, which until last year was put into chicken and pig feed to control intestinal parasites that might cause them to eat less and grow slower. Chicken litter (containing the arsenic that passes through the birds) is also collected from chicken CAFOs and fed to feedlot cattle, for some apparent reason that defies common sense.
- Animal byproducts — categorized as “animal protein products,” this includes rendered feathers, hair, skin, hooves, blood, internal organs, intestines, beaks and bones, dead horses, euthanized cats and dogs, and road kill.
Most Fast Food is a Mixture of Chemicals, Sugar, Flavoring and Salt …
From there, fast food is often nothing more than a slew of chemicals, sugar, high fructose corn syrup and salt … for instance, only about half of a Chicken McNugget is actual chicken. The rest is a mix of corn-derived fillers and additives (most likely genetically modified), along with a slew of synthetic chemicals, including:
- Dimethyl polysiloxane, a type of silicone with anti-foaming properties used in cosmetics and a variety of other goods like Silly Putty
- Tertiary butylhydroquinone (TBHQ), a petroleum-based product with antioxidant properties
Frankly, there is a frightening coincidence glaring at us, right before our eyes. Obesity has become pandemic in the past 30 years, paralleling the use of genetic engineering, and increased pesticide use. More than 60% of Americans are overweight, and obesity has doubled in the past 20 years, globally. Our intestines may be colonized with new microbes, making us very sick. Something is seriously wrong here and has not been seen before.
It doesn’t matter how much we wash an ear of corn. We’re eating pesticides, chemicals, and new ‘foods’. Some people truly believe, that the food source of today is the safest it has ever been. They embrace Genetically Modified (GM) food wholeheartedly, accept irradiation of food, and blindly stuff themselves with the latest food experiment….That is, the human food experiment.
Everyday, the average American is exposed to 10 to 13 different pesticides through food, beverages and drinking water. Nine of the 10 most common pesticides are endocrine-disrupting, which have been linked to weight gain.
Genetic engineering has produced bizarre toxins, and those toxins are in the GM food that we dish up. It has increased the level of allergens, altered the composition of protein and other nutrients, increasing the GM crop’s absorption of pesticides and other chemicals.
A study in the International Journal of Obesity from researchers at 10 different universities, found that the use of hormones in factory meat production could be a possible contributor to the obesity epidemic. It is known that many toxins preferentially accumulate in fat cells. Fat-soluble pesticides are attracted to the fat stores in the body. In the United States, 88 percent of the corn, 93 percent of the canola, and 94 percent of the soybeans are genetically-modified, and are heavily sprayed with biocides such as glyphosate. So, when eating the tofu, or drinking the soy milk, think about what you’re consuming.
Medical terrorism in Michigan? Parents forced by the state to poison their child with cancer-causing chemicals
Monday, March 19, 2012
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
Editor of NaturalNews.com
[NaturalNews] Government is not merely denying parents and families the right to consume healthful whole foods such as raw milk; now rule-by-force government authorities are threatening a Michigan family with criminal prosecution if they do not poison their child with chemotherapy chemicals — even though their child shows no signs of cancer!
This latest gross violation of medical freedom by government goons has been reported by World Net Daily in a story by Bob Unruh (http://www.wnd.com/2012/03/state-demands-child-take-cancer-causing-dr…). Other facts revealed in the story include:
• The case is being fought on behalf of Ken and Erin Stieler and their son Jacob by attorneys with the Home School Legal Defense Association (http://www.hslda.org).
• The Michigan Department of Human Services has filed suit to force the parents to administer the chemicals to their son even though medical scans reveal him to be completely clear of cancer.
• The chemotherapy chemicals being mandated by the state include ifosfamide, etoposide and doxorubicin. All of these chemicals are carcinogens, meaning they cause cancer. The FDA openly admits that these drugs have never been proven safe in children, stating, “safety and effectiveness in pediatric patients have not been established.”
• Lower courts in Michigan have twice ruled against state officials and sided with the family to avoid their son being poisoned with chemotherapy.
• The Michigan Department of Human Services insists that state criminal prosecutors charge the parents with medical negligence.
Statement from the HSLDA (Home School Legal Defense Association)
the Michigan Department of Human Services continues to attempt to prosecute this family for medical neglect. If they succeed they will force Jacob to resume chemotherapy despite the fact that the drugs in question are not FDA approved (either for children in general or for this particular cancer). Moreover, these drugs do not promise anything close to a guaranteed cure. And, the FDA requires the drug manufacturers to disclose that these drugs cause new cancers to form, heart disease in children, failure to sexually mature, and many other serious side effects in some cases.
The Marquette County Probate Court has twice ruled against the Department. Yet, the department keeps on fighting against these parents.
Big Brother medical insanity: Poison your child or go to jail!
For several years, I’ve warned NaturalNews readers about the rise of what I coined “Gunpoint Medicine.” See other examples of gunpoint medicine at:
The term “gunpoint medicine” means medicine administered at gunpoint by the government, and it’s exactly what Ken and Erin Stieler are facing right now. The origins of this bizarre use of government force against families stems from the twisted belief of government worshippers and power-tripping “authorities” that the government owns your children, not you (the parents).
You see this reflected in school lunch programs as well, where parents who pack brown bag lunches for their children are horrified to learn that their children are forced to ditch their home-made lunches and eat processed “pink slime” chicken nuggets at school. (http://www.naturalnews.com/034979_food_police_sack_lunches_schoolchil…)
Due to this overreaching form of government-sponsored medical terrorism, parents who do not agree to poison their children withcancer-causing chemicals may be criminally prosecuted, thrown in jail and have their child taken away from them.
If you think about it, this is a fundamental human rights issue. Don’t parents have the basic right to say “No” to a medical treatment that is openly admitted to cause cancer, brain damage and kidney damage? Isn’t this a rational decision made by parents who wish to protect the health of their child?
But no; in today’s profit-driven medical system, profits are far more important than human rights. That’s why children are routinely used as human guinea pigs by drug companies who murder those children during their vaccine experiments and drug trials (http://www.naturalnews.com/023654.html). It’s also why chemotherapy, vaccines and other potentially deadly medical “treatments” are being forced onto children all across America. Remember when Texas Governor Rick Perry announced that parents had to inject their teens with HPV vaccines? (http://www.naturalnews.com/033571_Rick_Perry_HPV_vaccines.html)
Only western medicine must be administered at gunpoint
Of all the systems of medicine that exist around the world (Ayurvedic medicine, Amazon rainforest medicine, Aboriginal medicine, Tibetan medicine, Chinese medicine, etc.), conventional western medicine is the ONLY system so dangerous, deadly and unwelcomed that it must be administered under the threat of imprisonment.
Pause to think about that for a moment: Every other system of medicine in the world isvoluntary. But not western (pharmaceutical) medicine. It is a system of medicine found to be so offensive by rational people that the state itself must resort to using the threat of arrest at gunpoint in order to coerce parents into reluctantly agreeing to the toxic treatments.
That’s why I say:
“A system of medicine that requires enforcement at gunpoint is not medicine at all. It is coercion and torture.”
It’s also a crime against humanity.
Chemotherapy drugs cause kidney damage, liver damage and brain damage
Even when chemotherapy drugs supposedly “work” to shrink a tumor (which, by itself, is no real measure of a cancer cure), they do so at a terrible price: The permanent damaging of kidneys, liver and brain.
Chemotherapy causes so much kidney failure that kidney dialysis is one of the most common procedures following chemotherapy patients. Those patients also suffer from so-called “chemo brain” — a permanent damaging of the brain that mimics dementia or Alzheimer’s.
Liver function is also severely harmed by chemotherapy agents, sharply reducing the patient’s ability to detoxify their body from future chemical assaults, thereby making them more susceptible to recurring cancer in the future. That’s why cancer almost always comes back a year or two after chemotherapy.
Even worse than all this, the No. 1 side effect of chemotherapy is cancer! Yep, this is a treatment that admittedly causes the very condition it claims to treat. How’s that for total medical quackery?
Take action: Protest this medical insanity being pushed by the Michigan Department of (In)Human Services
Protest this medical insanity! Here’s some contact information for the director of the Michigan Department of Human Services:
Director Maura D. Corrigan
P.O. Box 30037

Telephone: (517) 373-2035

Warning to parents: STOP taking your children to drug-pushing pediatricians!
The lesson in this case of medical coercion is to AVOID taking your children to conventional pediatricians!
Parents: You may not realize this, but a pediatrician has the power to throw you in prison for dismissing their medical demands!
If that pediatrician says “Your child needs chemotherapy” and you say, “I prefer not to poison my child with cancer-causing chemicals,” that pediatrician simply picks up the phone, calls state authorities and has you arrested. In other cases reported by NaturalNews, we’ve even seen pediatricians call state troopers and SWAT teams on parents who refused to comply with their demands. (http://www.naturalnews.com/gunpoint_medicine.html)
Pediatricians are the new medical terrorists in America, you see. And if you do not follow their demands, they have the power to have your children taken away from you while you are arrested and prosecuted for criminal “medical negligence.”
I’m not making this up. Such is the dangerous power of police state medicine in America today.
The solution to all this is obvious, and I’ll say it again: Do NOT take your children to conventional pediatricians! If you don’t take your child to see a pediatrician, you deny them the opportunity to diagnose your child with something and then demand your compliance with their high-profit treatments. You refuse to submit to their false authority.
Instead, take your children to naturopaths or other practitioners who are not ego-tripping medical maniacs who get off on punishing parents for refusing their medical services.
Buy our chemicals or go to jail
There’s another angle in all this, too: Many of these pediatricians are pediatric oncologists, meaning they specialize in cancer treatments for children. The dirty little secret of the cancer industry is that oncologists earn most of their profits from selling chemotherapy drugs to patients.
So at the same time they are “diagnosing” you with cancer, they’re also selling you a load of (chemical) bunk and hoping you’re stupid enough to buy into it. Once you sign the “treatment” line, your insurance company pays them big bucks. Huge profits margins are generated from chemotherapy drugs.
If you say “no” to an oncologist — who is very much like a car salesman in the sense that he has a financial stake in your decision — you are costing him a loss in profits. He doesn’t like that. His BMW needs an upgrade, you see, and he’s hoping to fly to Hawaii to catch another golf game next week, and to do that, he needs another $20,000 in health insurance reimbursements from your policy. So if you say no, he might just be so angry that he calls the police on you. “You dare to say NO to ME? You’ll see who has the power NOW!”
You can almost hear the “Muah ha ha ha!” following the whole scene.
Yes, these pediatric oncologists are some of the most evil, unethical, and downright criminal minds you will find in the medical system today. Far from helping children, they are engaged in mass poisoning crimes that rival the gassing of Jews in Nazi Germany. In fact, some of the chemicals come from the very same sources — drug companies that were once part of IG Farben, the Nazi war crimes chemical conglomerate that was found guilty of crimes against humanity. Today’s Bayer company is an offshoot of IG Farben, in fact, and the former chairperson of Bayer, Fritz ter Meer, was found guilty of war crimes in the Nuremberg trials.
As NaturalNews reported in 2008: (http://www.naturalnews.com/024534_Europe_health_WHO.html)
“At the Nuremberg Trials, 24 of the IG Farben directors and other industrialists were charged with genocide, slavery, and other crimes against humanity. Many of these unscrupulous villains would later play a key role in reinstating several IG Farben companies as huge players in the pharmaceutical/chemical industry not only in Germany but also throughout Europe and the United States. And several of these former Nazis would be pivotal in devising a pan-European trade association which has now evolved into the European Union.
Dr. Fritz ter Meer, a director of IG Farben who was directly involved in developing the nerve gas, Zyklon-B, which killed millions of Jews, was sentenced to seven years in prison but was released after four years through the intervention of Rockefeller and J.J. McCloy, then U.S. High Commissioner for Germany. An unrepentant Fritz ter Meer, guilty of genocide and crimes against humanity, returned to work in Bayer where he served as Chairman for more than 10 years, until 1961.
This same ter Meer, a convicted Nazi war criminal, went on to become one of the initiators of the Codex Alimentarius Commission in 1962, an organization that was nurtured by the World Health Organization (WHO), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and latterly the World Trade Organization (WTO).”
Protect your children from poison-pushing pediatricians
So the next time you see a pediatrician pushing chemotherapy, just think to yourself, “Nazi war criminal!” Just because they have a medical license doesn’t mean they aren’t committing crimes against children. Hitler made it the law that Jews should be exterminated, but just because something is the law doesn’t make it right, obviously. And just because someone who claims to be a doctor prances around in a white lab coat and claims your child needs their (profitable) chemicals doesn’t mean he’s telling you the truth. If he’s a pediatric oncologist, he’s probably lying to youas part of his fear-based sales pitch to coerce you into buying chemotherapy treatments.
Remember: The No. 1 sales tool of the cancer industry is FEAR. And if fear doesn’t work, they simply call the police and resort to using INTIMIDATION and coercion instead.
Gee, and they wonder why people are increasingly ditching conventional medicine, chemotherapy, pharmaceuticals and surgery? Maybe it’s because parents and families are tired of being treated like criminals by a class of arrogant medical scumbags who believe their power is more important than your freedom.
