This film by the German film-maker Bertram Verhaag is a political thriller. It is a story of two scientists, Dr Arpad Pusztai and Dr Ignacio Chapela, whose research on GMO foods and crops showed negative findings. The two scientists were vilified and intimidated and their careers derailed when their research was shown to be unfavorable to Big Food.

The attack on scientists is very well structured by the biotech industry. It’s systematic. It’s worldwide. It’s very coordinated. It’s part of the way they do business – Jeffrey Smith, author of the book: Seeds of Deception

The movie is a tale about big agribusiness, GMOs and freedom of speech and the attempts by the biotech industry to suppress and discredit scientists and their research.

Quickest Vegetable Soup Recipe

This is the quickest vegetable soup recipe that I know. It is delicious and low in fat, yet very fast and easy to make. Most soups take a lot of time to make and usually you wind up making enough to feed a small army. You can make a half-batch of this recipe if you like (all the photos I shot were a half-batch).

So with this recipe you can make it fast plus you can make it in small batches. Those are two big plus points … and another plus is that it is healthy! We try to use all organic ingredients – organic broth, organic basil and oregano, organic carrots, green beans and cabbage.

The secret to this recipe is that you start with vegetable broth and beef broth. They come in handy 32-oz containers. That’s what saves the time. We only use organic broths because we want to make sure they are healthy to begin with. You simply add in fresh vegetables. It only takes a few minutes to chop them. Using fresh vegetables always ensures you’re getting good food. That’s important. ... Read More

Homemade Chili Con Carne (Killer Chili)

There’s nothing like homemade chili! It seems like everyone has his or her own special recipe so this is my version. You can cook it up on the stove in a couple of hours. You first need to have some cooked pinto beans. You can cook them the day before and keep them in the refrigerator or soak them the night before and cook the beans and the chili all in one day. They take about 3 hours to cook after soaking all night.

Everything in this recipe is healthy. I use grass-fed ground beef. It’s the best quality beef you can obtain. Some chili recipes call for kidney beans, but this one uses pinto beans.

This recipe uses 3 different kinds of chili peppers – Anaheim, serrano and sweet mini-peppers. The Anaheim peppers are very mild and the serrano peppers provide all the hotness. You can substitute jalapeño peppers for the serrano peppers if you want. Jalapeño peppers are not quite as hot, but will work. The nice thing about cooking with peppers is that it seems no matter how you combine them, you can taste all the individual flavors. ... Read More
