Farmed Salmon Pens in rivers are breeding viruses that are killing wild salmon by the MILLIONS. Spreading down the coast. Parasites like lice also spreading like wildfire to all kinds of fish.
Both these fish are sold in grocery stores. Sick fish don't eat. If you didn't know that, could you easily buy the one infected with a virus? People are doing it everyday because the government is allowing infected fish sold to eat.
Salmon is a "Keystone Species." Many other species depend on salmon to survive. Marine Harvest has already wiped out entire salmon populations/eco systems in Norway, Scotland, Ireland. Viruses headed to WA, OR, CA.
Dr. Alex Morton BC Canada found ISA and PRV virus in supermarket Atlantic farmed salmon and it's spreading to US along the coast. Wild salmon are dying is massive amounts and NEVER spawning. Grizzly bears are having to revert to cannibalism and eating each other because no salmon to eat. Government taking NO action so Dr. Morton is suing Canadian government for allowing the destruction and corporation responsible, a Norwegian multi billion dollars corporation called Marine Harvest Hatchery. Bad practices have created mutated viruses and massive infestations of lice that have already wiped out entire eco systems in Norway, Scotland, Ireland, and Chile where 70% of farmed salmon wiped out.
In 2009 10 million baby salmon left for the ocean and for the first time did not come back. Important to know why. Devastating.
Dr. Morton joined Smart Health Talk Radio Show to tell us why she's suing Canadian gov't and Norway's Multi Billion Dollar Corporation Marine Harvest Hatchery.
See the devestation for yourself. Watch this and see what Dr. Alex Morton found out in the field!
Read our update from Kate Webb
The House passed H.112 today on a tri-partisan vote of 99-42! There were several attempts to gut the bill but these were all soundly defeated. This is a huge step as the bill now heads to the Senate. As we will adjourn either Saturday or early next week, the Senate will not be able to take up the bill until January. There are senators very excited about this bill so I expect it to be picked up early.
Senator David Zuckerman has been a long supporter of this bill and will likely spearhead action in the senate.
Thanks for spreading the good word and the good work. Indeed, we could be the little state that could. Let's hope our action today encourages other states to be brave. Happy to speak with you later.
Listen to Broadcast with Kate and Dr. Hansen
Will the strength and commitment of Kate Webb and science background of Dr. Michael Hansen together with a legislative forum willing to honor the wishes of the people of their State of Vermont pass H.112 to label Monsanto GMOs in food? Will Vermont overcome the financial burden required to fight the legal battle Monsanto has promised once H.112 is passed with a price tag of 5 million+? Vermont legislator decisions work to protect innocent people from being forced to eat food contaminated with GMOs because a simple "may contain GMOs" is not on the label. Without that information doctors and health officials cannot prove a GMO/sickness cause and effect relationship because no GMO food intake records can be kept. If that was proven, attitudes would change, and why Monsanto was willing to spend 47 million to stop California Prop #37. Knowing to avoid GMOs to stop allergies and other conditions could save Americans millions in healthcare, lost productivity, life, and environmental clean up from pesticides and other GMO related destruction. Taxpayer money could be used to save lives and educate our citizens instead of increasing corporate profit. Money that is then used to make us sick and pollute our land and water. We support their efforts to stop these injustices.
Perfect gift. No pesticides and good for the environment and people.
Vermont Representative Kate Webb Joins Smart Health Talk Radio Show to Discuss Mandatory GMO Labeling
Watch our interview with Pamm Larry to find out what happened to CA Prop #37 for Mandatory GMO Labeling and how she's helping other states pass their GMO labeling laws. Will California see another GMO labeling bill on the ballot in the future?
Watch the video with Howard Vlieger and two MAAM (Moms Across America March) moms that fought to find the answers to help stop their child's suffering from severe allergies and a condition called PANDAS (Pyschological and Neurological Disorder Associated with Strep) that stays in the brain and changes behavior.
Zen Honeycutt (far left), founder MAAM (Moms Across America March), Kathleen Kelly Hallah, MAAM member and leader in Orange County LabelGMOs.org campaign tell their story of fighting for the health and the life of their children with severe allergies with surprising causes such as PANDAS impacting health and behavior brought on by GMOs (genetically modified organisms).
Hear our one minute promo for our interview with Dave Murphy and the Inland Empire Yes on Prop #37 Right to Know Campaign.
We normally don't allow any company owned by one of the "Big Ten" corporations controlling almost everything we eat on Smart Heath Talk Radio Show, but we had faith in the people at Ben & Jerry's to be role models when we interviewed them in 2012. Since they have stepped up to the plate to not only testify at the Vermont legislative hearings to label GMOs, but have exceeded the goal they shared with us on Smart Health Talk to move up their own date of 2015 to the end of 2013 to be a GMO free product themselves. They also stood up to our right to know if GMO Bovine Growth Hormone was in dairy products.

Of the billions of dollars of taxpayer dollars spent on the farm bill only LESS THAN ONE PERCENT of the total is spent to help fruit and vegetable farmers yet USDA says one half of the plate needs to be fruits & veggies to prevent chronic disease.
