Within a few weeks two key rules of the US Food Safety Modernization Act could receive an update which will see many small organic farms closing down and giving up the playing field to the corporations.
For those interested comments can still be left on the FDA site.
We would like to give credit to Natural Blaze for a very interesting and informative article.
Apparently a cheap substitute for cocain is spreading through the USA – the usage is devasting (of course using cocain is harmful too), not only does the drug eat through the user’s flesh; but where injected the skin turns reptilian (green and scaly).
Now, we are including the full article here but would just like to point out that the video does show some gruesome film – viewing discretion advised.
Out of all the articles we have highlighted in the past about efforts in many countries by authorities to cut the wings of those going off-grid and preparing for hard-times to come; this report is tops in awakening readers to the fact that the walls are closing in faster and faster.
Last year “hoarding” was banned in the USA with authorities then having control over all resources. Now in Venezuela if you hoard stores of food etc and you are caught you will be detained. In such a situation where there is a food shortage people could find residents on their own street blowing the whistle about their food storage if known. What would you do? Full article here.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are planning a ban which would force wood-burning stove owners in the US to scrap, not resale, their old stoves and purchase EPA-approved ones. Full article here.
Many of us remember at some stage during our childhood when parents and grandparents spent many a day passing on basic and advanced gardening skills to us, with those children fortunate enough to have been allocated a small lot within their garden to grow-your-own. Also the memories of watching the little gardens grow, waiting to eat the results of what our little hands sewed.
Devestatingly now it seems that such childhood experiences and acquired gardening knowledge is almost a thing of the past – something they will in future read about in history classes about how “they” lived “back then”.
We recommend to all not just to teach gardening but to think of way for that knowledge to be retained and past on to future generations. Full article here.
Apparently it is currently appropriate for practicing anti-terror drills, specifically training for a potential nuclear attack, across the USA.
Maybe you are in one of the towns where these drills are being practiced, maybe not – we recommend to prepare yourself, not just with adequate gear for you and your family but also to read up about living in a radioactive environment. Full Article here.
