Dear NaturalNews readers,

Today we are announcing a nationwide boycott of General Mills over the company's deceptive marketing and food labeling practices.

As a new Food Investigations episode reveals, Total Blueberry Pomegranate Cereal has been found to contain no blueberries and no pomegranates.

Instead, the cereal contains artificial coloring chemicals, 8 different types of sweeteners (including sucralose) and low-cost vegetable oils such as soybean and corn oils.

Read this startling investigative report on General Mills and Total Cereal:
http://www.naturalnews.com/031053_General_Mills_Total_cereal.html


The "blueberry deception" isn't limited to just General Mills, it turns out! Other large food companies and retail stores also use artificial colors to "fake" their blueberries. My investigation has turned up some stunning deceptions across the U.S. food industry:

Be sure to watch the 7-minute documentary that exposes these practices by the processed food industry. You'll find this episode of Food Investigations at:

I've been writing about the "food bubble" for several years. Here's what I predicted about the coming food bubble collapse in 2008 -- and it seemed "radical" at the time, didn't it? (Now it's front-page news...)

The pesticide peddlers are not happy with Michelle Obama. 
We support organic gardening.
Tell the board members of MACA (virtually all of them big chemical executives) that we don't appreciate their telling Michelle Obama (or any of us) to use pesticides in our gardens. 




The Mid America CropLife Association (MACA) represents chemical companies that produce pesticides, and they are angry that — wait for it — Michelle Obama isn't using chemicals in her organic garden at the White House.

We are not making this up.

In an email they forwarded to their supporters, a MACA spokesman wrote, "While a garden is a great idea, the thought of it being organic made [us] shudder." MACA went on to publish a letter it had sent to the First Lady asking her to consider using chemicals — or what they call "crop protection products" — in her garden.

Michelle Obama has done America a great service by publicizing the importance of nutritious food for kids (she's growing the garden in partnership with a local elementary school class) as well as locally grown produce as an important, environmentally sustainable food source.

MACA's letter is part of a larger propaganda effort to convince people that chemicals are a necessary part of produce growth — when we know that's not true.

Click here to tell the MACA board that we support Michelle Obama's organic garden, and we'll thank them to keep their propaganda out of it.

Thank you for working to build a more organic world.

A New Cigarette Hazard: ‘Third-Hand Smoke’

"Parents who smoke often open a window or turn on a fan to clear the air for their children, but experts now have identified a related threat to children’s health that isn’t as easy to get rid of: third-hand smoke.

That’s the term being used to describe the invisible yet toxic brew of gases and particles clinging to smokers’ hair and clothing, not to mention cushions and carpeting, that lingers long after second-hand smoke has cleared from a room. The residue includes heavy metals, carcinogens and even radioactive materials that young children can get on their hands and ingest, especially if they’re crawling or playing on the floor.

Doctors from MassGeneral Hospital for Children in Boston coined the term “third-hand smoke” to describe these chemicals in a new study that focused on the risks they pose to infants and children. The study was published in this month’s issue of the journal Pediatrics.

“Everyone knows that second-hand smoke is bad, but they don’t know about this,” said Dr. Jonathan P. Winickoff, the lead author of the study and an assistant professor ofpediatrics at Harvard Medical School."
