Legislation to ban growing your own food

Senate Bill S510 Makes it illegal to Grow, Share, Trade or Sell Homegrown Food

S 510 Will Ban Home Grown Crop

S 510, the food Safety Modernization Act of 2010, may be the most dangerous bill in the history of the US. It is to our food what the bailout was to our economy, only we can live without money.

“If accepted [S 510] would preclude the public’s right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes. It will become the most offensive authority against the
cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products of one’s choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law or, if you like, the will of God.”~Dr. Shiv Chopra, Canada Health whistleblower

It is similar to what India faced with imposition of the salt tax during British rule, only S 510 extends control over all food in the US, violating the fundamental human right to food.

Monsanto says it has no interest in the bill and would not benefit from it, but Monsanto’s Michael Taylor who gave us rBGH and unregulated genetically modified (GM) organisms, appears to have designed it and is waiting as an appointed Food Czar to the FDA (a position unapproved byCongress) to administer the agency it would create — without judicial review — if it passes. S 510 would give Monsanto unlimited power over all US seed, food supplements, food and farming.

History

In the 1990s, Bill Clinton introduced HACCP (Hazardous Analysis Critical Control Points) purportedly to deal with contamination in the meat industry. Clinton’s HACCP delighted the offending corporate (World Trade Organization “WTO”) meat packers since it allowed them to inspect themselves, eliminated thousands of local food processors (with no history of contamination), and centralized meat into their control. Monsanto promoted HACCP.

    I ran a google news search, for the past month, on the phrase

    “S 510, the food Safety Modernization Act of 2010”

    Two pages into the results all I found were articles related to the meat industry that did not seem to keen on the bill as it means much tougher food safety inspections.

    I found an article stating that Eric Schlosser, author of “Fast Food Nation” is advocating the bill because he wants those tougher meat inspections.

    I did not see anything stating that the bill would make growing your own food or selling it illegal.

    The only places I have seen that have been on this and one other blog. I have not seen that claim in any primary news sources.

    Where did you get your information if you don’t mind my asking?
