Coca-Cola is in vehement opposition to the recent ruling of a Nigerian judge concerning their sugary sodas. In a lawsuit over beverages Coca-Cola makes in a Nigerian factory, a Lagos High Court judge recently stated that the drinks contained high levels of carcinogens that are both harmful and “poisonous.”

The Carcinogens in Question

The carcinogens in question are benzoic acid and other additives like 4-methylimidazole (4-MI), which are used to create the “caramel coloring” that is added to Coca-Cola’s products. The judge’s warning implies that consumers of the popular drinks have much more to worry about than just rotting teeth and obesity caused by sugar consumption. (Just months ago, it was found that Coca-Cola funded scientists were paid to tell Americans they were too worried about what they were eating and drinking though sugary sodas have been directly linked to an obesity epidemic.)

A Nigerian judge has called Coca-Cola products

A Nigerian judge has called Coca-Cola products “poisonous.”

The Nigerian court Justice, Adedayo Oyebanji, held that high levels of carcinogenic additives were causing an unnecessary health risk, and that when mixed with ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) they could cause dire health consequences. Coca-Cola’s Nigerian Bottling Company (NBC) was forced to put warning labels on Coke’s products – including Fanta and Sprite, and awarded 2 million naira (around $6,350 U.S. dollars) against the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) for failing to ensure specific health standards.

“It is manifest that NAFDAC has been grossly irresponsible in its regulatory duties to the consumers of Fanta and Sprite manufactured by Nigeria Bottling Company,” the judge said.

He continued, “NAFDAC has failed the citizens of this great nation by its certification as satisfactory for human consumption products … which become poisonous in the presence of ascorbic acid.”

Meanwhile the Nigerian Health Ministry released a claim stating that Coca-Cola’s products were safe to consume even though several studies including the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization (WHO) have confirmed that soft drinks containing a mixture of the salt of benzoic acid, sodium benzoate and vitamin C can cause cancer and other chronic conditions

Coca-Cola representatives are also trying to quash the roiling ramifications of Justice Oyebanji’s verdict now that Nigerians are boycotting Coca-Cola products in the lawsuit’s aftermath.

Additionally, the NBC and the federal food-safety agency are both appealing the ruling, arguing: “Coke’s products don’t exceed benzoic acid limits in Nigeria …” The Coca-Cola Company and the agency cite limits set by the U.N.’s Food and Agriculture Organization, which technically wouldn’t label the sodas as dangerous, but only because permissible ingredient levels vary by country, depending on many factors.

Coca-Cola’s Incendiary History

Many are not wise to Coca-Cola’s shady past, though most are well advised of the company’s current lackluster image.

  • Coca-Cola Beverages Used to Contain Cocaine. This addictive drug was used to keep people coming back for more Coke. It was only removed in 1929, more than forty years after Coke products were introduced to a mass market. (In other words, plenty of time for the company to have developed a mass following through a highly-addictive product.)
  • Coca Leaf Extract is Still Used in CocaCola Products Today. This plant alkaloid still has a highly stimulating effect on the brain, just like speed.
  • The Coca-Cola Corporation has been Accused of Assassination to Further the Company’s Greed. The notorious Columbian death squad terrorism funded by Coca-Cola are detailed here.
  • Coca-Cola is Not All-American. The company has promoted its drinks as all American when they were doing business with Nazi Germany, with their logo resting comfortably next to the 3rd Reich’s Swastika.

    Is the Nigerian judge over-zealous in his determination that Coca-Cola’s products are “poisonous”? If the company’s history is explored, he seems quite right.

CDC cronyism exposed: Scientists with integrity call out the agency’s corrupt industry ties

According to its mission statement, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) “conducts critical science” to protect Americans against health threats. But can an agency with deep ties to various industries really conduct research and formulate policy in a critical, unbiased manner?

The Alliance for Natural Health USA (ANH-USA) says no.

In fact, the ANH-USA has repeatedly uncovered evidence of industry influence on the agency – for example, that of food corporation giant Coca-Cola. Barbara Bowman, director of the Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention, recently resigned her post at the CDC after her long-term connection with Coca-Cola was made public. Bowman was once a senior nutritionist at Coca-Cola, and has been accused of granting favors to a lobby group backed by the beverage maker.

According to ANH-USA, Coca-Cola was able – with Bowman’s help – to influence the setting of WHO sugar limits.

Now, the ANH-USA reports that a group of ethically-minded scientists within the CDC have sent a letter to the CDC chief of staff voicing their concerns regarding rampant corporate influence over the agency. (RELATED: Find more news about government corruption at Corruption.news)

CDC SPIDER exposes influence from ‘outside parties and rogue interests’

The group calls itself CDC Scientists Preserving Integrity, Diligence, and Ethics in Research (CDC SPIDER), and the introduction of their letter reads as follows:

“We are a group of scientists at CDC that are very concerned about the current state of ethics at our agency. It appears that our mission is being influenced and shaped by outside parties and rogue interests. It seems that our mission and Congressional intent for our agency is being circumvented by some of our leaders. What concerns us most is that it is becoming the norm and not the rare exception.”

The letter describes several troubling examples of conflict of interest and influence from outside the agency, including the Bowman Coca-Cola scandal and others.

The fact that a group of scientists from within the agency found it necessary to take such an action is strong evidence that such influence actually exists, prompting the ANH-USA to ask:

“Are vaccine manufacturers influencing CDC leaders concerning childhood vaccinations, as we’ve long believed? Are potential whistleblowers being threatened and silenced to protect industry interests? How can we put our children’s health in the hands of an agency that has this level of corruption being reported by its own scientist employees?”

Valid questions all, and ones which must be addressed by the CDC if the agency expects to be given any credibility at all.

Industry lobbying is nothing new, and a certain level of interaction between various industries and the agencies charged with regulating them is unavoidable – corporations should have some input in the regulatory process, and agencies should not necessarily be in conflict with their interests.

Can Donald Trump fix a rigged regulatory system?

However, the system has been rigged by those with deep pockets who seek to subvert agency agendas to suit their interests. Agencies such as the CDC have been deliberately infiltrated by industry insiders like Barbara Bowman, and the scales have been tipped in industry’s favor.

Far from conducting “critical science,” the CDC provides the research results and regulatory guidelines that corporations such as Coca-Cola pay them for. (See more examples of fake science at FakeScience.news)

Current CDC director, Thomas Frieden, will step down this month, and president-elect Donald Trump has not yet announced his successor. It will be interesting to see how the incoming president handles the appointment and the subsequent management of the agency.

Trump has indicated that he believes vaccines are linked to autism. If he appoints a new CDC director who echoes that sentiment, then the CDC could indeed be headed in an entirely new direction.

The incoming president has a chance to do the right thing in draining the CDC swamp – provided he selects the right person for the job.

Why do so many Americans continue to choose junk food over healthy food?

Even though more people than ever are switching to organic food and other healthier choices, the American diet in general remains very unhealthy. With obesity and its related health problems reaching epidemic proportions, many people wonder why Americans continue to make such bad choices when it comes to food.

The problem cannot be blamed on a lack of information, especially not in the Internet Age. While some people still remain largely ignorant when it comes to the dangers of GMOs, for example, most people in the year 2016 realize that junk food is not good for their health.

Other people say that it’s a lack of money that drives people to make poor food choices, with people able to stretch their money a lot further on the McDonald’s $1 menu than in the organic section of a supermarket. This could be part of it, although other calculations have shown that the average amount of benefits provided by food stamps is sufficient for a healthy diet. Organic produce can also be grown at home cheaply, even without a yard.

Some say it’s because Americans are too busy working to make a wholesome meal from scratch, so they just grab whatever prepackaged foods they can find. While that might be true for some people, it doesn’t explain why someone in search of a snack would grab a bag of chips over a banana, solely in the interest of saving time.

Others posit that it’s largely an issue of taste, with people preferring the flavor of potato chips to that of spinach, for example. Again, it seems reasonable, but anyone who has ever taken a serious approach to a clean diet can tell you that there are many flavorful choices out there that do not put your health at risk.

Junk food is addictive, plain and simple

Nevertheless, the idea that it’s a matter of personal preference ties into one of the most compelling reasons people eat junk food: It is highly addictive from a scientific standpoint. In fact, a series of studies have shown that rats can become so addicted to a junk food diet that they would rather starve than eat healthy food, mimicking the addictive pattern that nutritionists see in humans who eat junk food despite knowing better.

Junk food is actually engineered to make people want more, which is why the Lay’s potato chip slogan promising that “No one can eat just one!” is so alarmingly accurate.

Junk food is engineered to trigger overeating

Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Tricked Us author, Michael Moss, says that Doritos and Coca-Cola are largely successful because of their complex formulas that taste very good but do not have one single prominent flavor that triggers the brain to stop eating.

Meanwhile, he says that Cheetos contain a remarkable number of attributes that make the brain crave more, not the least of which is their ability to melt in your mouth, which tricks your brain into thinking they don’t contain any calories and makes you want to keep eating them. Food companies employ teams of chemists, neuroscientists and physicists to get the ratio of sugar, salt and fat just right to keep people coming back for more.

A study from UNSW’s School of Medical Sciences found that feeding junk food to rats caused them to lose interest in novel foods, an effect that lasted even after being put back on a diet of healthy food. This could be one reason that people who eat a lot of junk food can’t get out of their rut – trying healthier alternatives no longer appeals to them, as they’ve lost their natural preference for variety.

Processed food also tends to contain a lot of sugar, even the savory choices. Americans eat 152 pounds of sugar every year on average. With sugar being eight times more addictive than cocaine, it’s easy to see why so many people are struggling to kick the habit.

As long as food companies keep pumping their foods with chemicals that keep people coming back for more, America’s junk food obsession is not going to go away.

Printable List Of Monsanto Owned “Food” Producers

 List Of Monsanto

Source: CSGlobe.com
August 18, 2016

Here is a printable list of companies owned by Monsanto that consumers should avoid if they are concerned about their health.

There are several reasons that people are opposed to Monsanto, but among the top two are their involvement with GMOs and their corruption of the U.S. government.

One of the more outrageous schemes they pulled off in recent years was to ensure the passing of the “Monsanto Protection Act” that essentially prevented courts from prosecuting Monsanto over GMO-related health issues and was allegedly partly written by the company itself. Though the Act was only in effect for six months, similar bills have been signed into law that protect companies over consumers.

As for GMOs, many studies have suggested that genetically-modified food products can drastically alter the health of consumers in a negative way.

The number of Americans with chronic illnesses has doubled since the mass production of GMOs began and animals given only a GMO diet have shown to develop organ damage, gastrointestinal and immune system disorders, accelerated aging, and infertility. GMOs have also show to cross-pollinate and last forever, meaning that the number of non-GMO products is decreasing and could ruin the health of future generations.

Though many of the products below may not contain GMOs themselves, the objective of a product boycott is to lessen the profit for Monsanto to show them that consumers are rejecting their practices and that we will not stand for their pollution or corruption.

Top 15 Places You’re NOT Allowed To Visit on Earth

AREA-51
Source: Ancient-Code.com
August 17, 2016

They say ‘Free World’… but the truth is that its not as free as you may think.

In fact, there are over a dozen places on our planet which you CANNOT gain access to.

From top-secret military bases to exclusive clubs and Armageddon bunkers.

In this article, we take a look at the FIFTEEN most restricted places on the surface of out planet.


RAF Menwith Hill. UK.


RAF-Menwith-Hill-2


One of the most secretive complexes in Europe, and one of the most peculiar looking one’s as well. These fascinating and somewhat weird structures provide communication and intelligence support to countries like the UK and the Us.

This complex is so vast; it has been cataloged as the BIGGEST electronic monitoring station on the entire planet.

The Bohemian Grove


bohemiangrove-owl_shrine


This one is really strange. It’s something nearly out of a Hollywood cult-like movie. The Bohemian Groove is a –forbidden— 2,700-acre rural location located ‘somewhere’ in California. The land is believed to be owned by a private San Francisco-based arts club called the Bohemian Club.

In the past, presidents such as Richard Nixon and Herbert Hoover have attended. Women are not allowed.

It turns out that every summer, the Bohemian Club hosts a two-week camp in the woods were the most influential people in the world gather. Are they worshiping reptilian gods?

Snake Island


snake-island-1


A place you cannot access and a place where you really don’t want to go. Snake Island is a small Island located off the coast of Brazil and contains 4,000 of the DEADLIEST snakes on the planet. Their venom is so powerful that it can MELT human flesh.

The Island has been deemed so dangerous that the Brazilian Government banned visitors from accessing it.

The Coca-Cola Vault


9744_image


Have you ever wondered the true recipe of Coca Cola? It turns out that the secret formula behind the Coca Cola recipe is one of the most heavily guarded secrets on the planet.

In order to protect their recipe, the Coca-Cola Company has a high-tech vault that holds the recipe and protects it from prying eyes.

Only a couple of people knows the actual formula.

Fort Knox


fort-knox-promo-475306449


Fort Know is a reserve that holds the United States Gold Bullion Reserve and a number of other national treasures. It is considered as one of the most secure places on the planet.

It is protected by around 30,000 soldiers and a flotilla of attack helicopters.

The Gold-Vault is allegedly protected by a 22-ton blast-proof door, and visitors are STRICTLY forbidden.

The Svalbard Seed Vault


1422479192433


Another really cool place that you cannot gain access to. It was constructed to store the seeds that could be utilized in the event of a catastrophic environmental disaster.

Only a couple of people are allowed access to the vault.

In fact, not even countries that have lend seeds are allowed access to the site. The vault is located on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen near Longyearbyen in the remote Arctic Svalbard archipelago.

The Vatican’s Secret Archive


Archives-046


No its not just a really old library. The Vatican Library is one of the largest and  most secretive libraries on the planet. In fact, only a sacred few have access to the wonders that the vaults contain.

From ancient Maya codices to ancient books that ‘allegedly’ are proof of alien contact, the Vatican Secret Archive is said to have it all and is another place on Earth you cannot access.

Pine Gap Australia


Pine-Gap-old-photo


Meet Australia’s version of Area 51. One Gap is located in Central Australia and is operated by the Australian Government and the Central Intelligence Agency.

It is the only place in Australia that is strictly designated as a no-fly zone and is used as a monitoring station.

The secret facility is said to operate a number of drone stripe programs.

The Lascaux Caves, France


lascauxmain


The Lascaux Caves in France contain ancient cave paintings that are believed to be over 17,000 years old, created by early humans depicting animals and curious geometric shapes.

The caves are a no-access zone since 1963. The caves have since been threatened by a strange fungal invasion that threatens the integrity of the paintings.

The Mormon Church Secret Vault


orig_Vaultentrance_27Apr10


The Secret Vault was constructed into the side of a mountain and is a secret, heat-controlled vault.

According to reports, it continues over 3 BILLION pages of data on genealogy and family history of Americans.

Even though tours are given once in a while, most of the vault is completely off limits.

Room 39 North Korea


1384834641-northkorea-o


Obviously located in North Korea, the Room 39 is also commonly referred to as Bureau 39.

It is a secretive organization whose goal is to find ways to obtain foreign currency fo Kim Jong-un, Chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea. It was established in 1970.

The secretive organization has been described as the ‘kingpin’ of North Korea’s ‘court economy’.

There is very limited data on Room 39, but it is believed to be an organization that has over 20 bank accounts in Switzerland and China and are used for money laundering operations and other illegal operations.

The secretive group has over 130 trading companies that are under its jurisdictions and directly controlled by Kim Jong-un.

Very little is known about what happens within its perimeters.

Mezhgorye, Russia


Mezhgorye,_Republic_of_Bashkortostan


Mezghorye is believed to be a Russian secret nuclear missile site. It is one of the most protected places in Russia, where two battalions permanently guard the base, preventing anyone from accessing it.

The base is said to contain automatic ballistic missiles which van be remotely activated in the event of a nuclear strike which can be detected by seismic, light and pressure sensors.

Disney Club 33


club-33-5.0


One of the most expensive clubs on the planet. Not many people know about it but Club 33 At Disneyworld has a 14-year long waiting list. If you happen to get on the list, a $40,000 initiation fee is required. Plus, you have to be the annual fee of $27,000.

The Club is entirely of limits from the public. Its members include Presidents of the United States, business leaders, and actors.

Google Datacenter


Google Data Center Storm Trooper And R2D2


Google eRuns the internet and its Data Center is as guarded as Area 51 is. It is a high-security location that contains trillions of records of our DATA.

You cannot access it, ever.

Area 51


AREA-51


Now that we mentioned Area 51, it is also one of the most secretive and well-protected locations on the surface of the planet.

This military base is located in Nevada, some 80 miles from downtown Las Vegas.

According to ‘official’ reports, the base’s primary purpose is the research and development of experimental aircraft and weaponry.

Interestingly, its existence has only been acknowledged in 2013, and until then the government claimed the base didn’t exist.

Many people believe that the base is not home to revolutionary aircraft and weaponry systems but is home to otherworldly technology.
