Whole Foods Markets, Inc. Friend To Better Health Or Foe?
Whole Foods Markets (WFM) has been around for over a decade. The company bought every successful chain healthfood store in America, including California's Mrs. Gooch's. Most of the healthfood stores they purchased carried at least 50% organic produce and meats. However, as soon as WFM took over the stores and became the only major healthfood stores around, the supply of organics fell dramatically.
WFM created a slogan "Go Organic". They advertised everywhere with that slogan. However, when shopping at their stores, no more than 5% of produce was organic. In winter, the best was 2% organic. WFM continues the slogan with no more effort to obtain organic than a sleezy car salesman intends to fix a bad car and cons you into buying it.
After WFM was well established, one of my patients and I researched WFM and its "All Natural" meats. Its head offices are in Texas and owned by several other companies/trusts with ties to the powerful Bass and Bush (U.S. presidents) families. Like all chain-food companies, they ruled all of the many ranches and ranchers' methods of caring for and feeding animals that supplied WFM meats. After many calls, WFM home-office management reluctantly allowed us to speak with the man who regulated meat-growers for WFM. We discovered that the all-natural diet included 15% bakery waste. You know, stale donuts and cakes that were boiled in hydrogenated (plastic) vegetable oils.
I called the head office again and asked them to remove the All Natural ads. I was refused based on the fact that donuts are made with grain that cows naturally eat. I countered that cows do not find and eat donuts and cake boiled in plastic oil in fields. The response was, they naturally do in our fields. So literally, he stated that the "All Natural" was not the universal meaning but natural to cows at WFM- controlled ranches.
I called the FDA who told me that anyone can call their meats natural as long as no more than 15% unnatural feeds were fed to cows. That was my revelation that WFM company statement of noble intent was nothing other than a scam by profiteers for the sole purpose of taking money from trusting health-conscious individuals who were unlikely to ever question WFM integrity.
Ten years passed and WFM had not added any more fresh organics than the 2-5%. However, 2 years ago one of its officials began to fight for raw milk with us in California, appearing at Senate and Assembly hearings. I was impressed and amazed until the last month's slap in the face when WFM announced they were not going to carry raw milk products any more. Its excuse was they could not get insurance for raw milk. That is a lie. About the same time, WFM made two diehard vegetarians the chief operations managers for all stores who think that milk is the worst food man consumes.
Soon the stores will be overrun with all sorts of non-animal products, especially "organic" soy products. The irony is sad. Humans cannot eat raw soy. It must be chemically treated and heated. So even though soy may be grown organically, after it is processed for human (or poultry) consumption, it is full of contaminants that are not organic. Not one soy product is organic when made for human consumption. So, just like WFM's slogan "Go Organic", the entire food store will is predominantly a health scam. Considering that the Bush family financially supported Hitler's genocide campaigns, would it be unrealistic to consider that that family with more wealth than it could spend would create a company set on false-health conditioning and annihilating health seeking individuals?
Did the attack on my person create a paranoid schizophrenic, you may ask? Or did the attack on my life make me more determined to speak about the ills of the controlling members of this planet, exposing their misdeeds?
