7 SUPPERS FOR SASSY SOULFUL COOKS By Julia Gillette

This morning at 2 am I opened the first box of books sent by the printer 3 days ago from Saint Louis and everything looked good. I started placing the cd in sleeves and securing them nicely in the back of the book. Mic left a few hours ago with the first 15 books fully assembled and ready for sale at a concert at Columbia College with Paul Contos and Dr. Rod Harris. http://www.uniondemocrat.com/News/Entertainment/Jazz-series-features-McFerrins-return

I have tried to put together a thoughtful book of recipes, original songs and ingredient information at an affordable price.  So, $7 was my goal and I made it.  There are 7 supper recipes and 7 songs for $7.  Email me with orders and I can calculate shipping and get them to you for Christmas. Mailing address for checks or money orders is Julia Gillette @ P.O. Box 244 West Point, CA 95255. Thanks!

Our Food is being Hijacked and Monsanto is one of the Culprits

Study Proves Three Monsanto Corn Varieties Pose Health Hazard
  • Study Proves Three Monsanto Corn Varieties’ Noxiousness to the Organism

A study published in the International Journal of Biological Sciences demonstrates the toxicity of three genetically modified corn varieties from the American seed company Monsanto, the Committee for Independent Research and Information on Genetic Engineering (Criigen, based in Caen), which participated in that study, announced Friday, December 11.

“For the first time in the world, we’ve proven that GMO are neither sufficiently healthy nor proper to be commercialized. […] Each time, for all three GMOs, the kidneys and liver, which are the main organs that react to a chemical food poisoning, had problems,” indicated Gilles-Eric Séralini, an expert member of the Commission for Biotechnology Reevaluation, created by the EU in 2008.

Caen and Rouen University researchers, as well as Criigen researchers, based their analyses on the data supplied by Monsanto to health authorities to obtain the green light for commercialization, but they draw different conclusions after new statistical calculations. According to Professor Séralini, the health authorities based themselves on a reading of the conclusions Monsanto has presented and not on conclusions drawn from the totality of the data. The researchers were able to obtain complete documentation following a legal decision.

“Monsanto’s tests, effected over 90 days, are obviously not of sufficient duration to be able to say whether chronic illnesses are caused. That’s why we ask for tests over a period of at least two years,” explained one researcher. Consequently, the scientists demand a “firm prohibition” on the importation and cultivation of these GMOs.
