Thomson, IL (PRWEB) May 11, 2011
According to an article published by The Orange County Register on May 4, 2011 the FDA has announced that they will be taking a more aggressive approach in preventing contaminated food from entering the United States. Operating under a new set of rules that will allow them to seize food they believe may have been processed in unsanitary or unsafe conditions the FDA will now, according to FDA deputy commissioner Mike Taylor, have the ability to “keep potentially harmful food from reaching U.S. consumers.” As significant as this may sound, OffTheGridNews.net has released a special report that indicates the safety of the nation’s food supply faces more threats than just suspicion of contamination.
While the move is certainly a win for the health of U.S. citizens, the reality is it won’t guarantee that all the food that reaches our plate is safe for consumption. That’s because the new FDA rules still ignore the potential health risks associated with specific methods of food production, methods that present serious risks to our health and the future of our food supply. These methods have been outlined in a special report published by OffTheGridNews.net entitled “Food Shock: Why 2011 Could Be The Most Important Year Ever To Plant A Family Garden,” a descriptive account detailing the dangers facing our food supply and the concerns surrounding new technologies being implemented for food production.
Much has been made about the rising food prices and the general belief that costs will continue to climb yet little has been published about the actual health risks associated with how our food is being grown. “Food Shock” sheds light on the issue, revealing how genetically modified fruits and vegetables along with the emergence on nanotechnology has diminished the nutritional value of our food, depleting it of the essential vitamins and minerals our body needs to survive.
What the FDA is now concentrating on is contaminated products, ignoring the fact that genetically altered fruits and vegetables can pose just as significant a threat. It has taken this long for the FDA to finally address the safety issues related to unsanitary and unsafe conditions for food production; the American people can’t afford to wait much longer for the FDA to take action against these other methods of growing and producing food
Understanding that the food supply still faces threats it becomes an individual’s responsibility to take personal action and the “Food Shock” report outlines exactly how that can be done. Authored by noted survivalists Bill Heid and Brian Brawdy, “Food Shock” provides a disturbing yet factual account of the threats still facing our food supply and the simple steps that can be taken to ensure every family has a lasting source of nutritional fruits and vegetables.
