Before you go to the grocery store again — or out to eat — please do yourself and your family a favor: avoid these genetically engineered foods hidden in our grocery stores and supermarket chains. If you buy this year a duck, a turkey or any other meat for your Christmas feast make sure that it has no bar-code! You will help that we are not ending up in the "fatal land of cockaigne".
Pretext: For years farmers in Europe and North America witnessed with their cattle severe digestive and reproductive problems when fed with genetically modified corn and soy. This the results of this alarming study by the Institute of Health and Environmental Research in Australia (1), everyone can read. And, this is just the tip of the iceberg. The legislation from the labeling of GM food has long undermined. The bar code for food is completely unimportant. The only way out of this spiral are cooperative stores and development of local small shops are within easy reach for all. In our societies health has become quite a dictation where those political responsible shake hands with a dangerous GM lobby and with their other hand "admonish" hypocritically citizens how to eat healthy. Now imagine, if once this autocratic but concept-loose policy becomes the norm, then you ad the idea all this self-opinionated nonsense is included in anonymous EU-legislation, then you will see that it will be too late to turn back the clock. The greatest danger arises from bureaucrats in Brussels by bulldozing every intangible heritage because they do not have a clue of local customs and traditions.
Butchery of Claude Hurard in Uzes a small town in the South of France.
"My wife and I started 30 years ago with nothing and at that time there were 30 butcher in the wider region", Claude Hurard explains and continues: "out of those, 28 butchers have had to close down". Mr. Hurard does not complain about unfair competition caused by supermarket chains. Everyone knows they have seized almost the entire market. So he just continuous to take care he offers quality for his costumers. That's all. Its the basic fact thats the way how customer trust is being built.
I wondered he never used the word unfair. He is a realist, so he explains that it is impossible to find employees. "Nobody wants to work in this profession", he says. If it is assumed that a small Butchery is employing about 5 to 6 people, means more than the meat department in a supermarket, it is clear which socio-political damage was done and why this dying of all sorts of professions is still on the rise.
