Important Quotes for Welcoming in the Post GMOs Era
Today, the battleground of Consciousness begins as we Label GMOs.
Here are some history quotes that set the stage.
I will write more on these later.
These commercial interests have the United States Government on their side, ever since they ousted Dr. Harvey W. Wiley from his job as head of the Food & Drug Administration in 1912. The present head of the Food & Drug Division of Nutrition, Dr. Elmer M. Nelson in a special Constitutional Court in Washington last October testified that: “It is wholly unscientific to state that a well fed body is more able to resist disease than a less well-fed body. My overall opinion is that there hasn't been enough experimentation to prove dietary deficiencies make one more susceptible to disease.” (Washington Post, October 26, 1949.)--Royal Lee
Articles from Let's Live Magazine, 1950
Articles by Royal Lee from Let's Live Magazine 1950:
Many comment, that surely if poor diet, and toxins in our food contributed so largely to health problems in our culture, that someone would immediately take action for a change, or that the news media would share these wonderful discoveries with the world. I’ll divert the answer to this question to Dr. Harvey W. Wiley former commissioner of the US Bureau of Chemistry which is now known as the FDA. While Dr. Wiley was commissioner he tried to enforce Pure Foods Act of 1906. This law, took great effort to pass at the time, it was a guarantee to the American people, that only pure, unprocessed foods and drugs, which did not contain any chemicals, pesticides, or additives would be legal to be sold. Under the Pure Food Act, unnatural foods such as; soft drinks, breakfast cereals, candy bars, non-organic food and many drugs of today would be illegal to make, sell or consume because of their hazardous effects. Dr. Wiley, in trying to enforce the pure food law, became so frustrated with the corruption in the FDA, which has been run by private food interests since around his time, 1912, that he resigned. He then wrote a book called, “History of Crime Against the Pure Food Law.” He knew that processed and denatured food along with chemical additives would cause and aggravate many degenerative diseases, yet he could not stop it from happening in our country.

No Pure Food Action—Now
By Harvey W. Wiley, MD
Summary: In 1925, Dr. Wiley, the former head of the USDA's Bureau of Chemistry (later to become the FDA), created a public firestorm when he published in Good Housekeeping magazine a letter he'd written to President Calvin Coolidge admonishing the Department of Agriculture for failing to enforce the landmark Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906, which outlawed the misbranding and adulteration of food. Wiley's letter caused Coolidge to call for an explanation from the acting secretary of the USDA, whose letter to the president revealed just how industrial food manufacturers had managed to circumvent the food purity law. In this partial article from 1926, Wiley expresses his disappointment in the conciliatory position of the USDA and questions the failure of the department to enforce the law in spite of the backing of two Supreme Court decisions. Though Wiley's stance against food manufacturers had cost him his job within the government, he continued to speak on behalf of America's public health throughout the remainder of his life. From Good Housekeeping, 1926.
