Murdered for Money
By Akwasi Evans

Everybody is going to die of something. That is what one of my part-time employees told me when I questioned his cough while he was smoking a cigarette. He was right of course, everybody and everything that was born will eventually die, but millions of people, plants and things on our planet are having their lives premature aborted by the avarice of an elitism minority of money worshipers who have killed God in their consciousness and are now enriching themselves by wiping out most if not all of His creation.


While my employee was enjoying the effects of the nicotine in his cigarette he was enhaling nearly 600 additional additives. Phillip Morris’ website list nearly 5,000 chemicals have been identified in tobacco smoke to date. Public health authorities have classified between 45 and 70 of those chemicals, including carcinogens, irritants and other toxins, as potentially causing the harmful effects of tobacco use. And smokers today are paying seven to eight dollars a pack for the pleasure of being poisoned.
On Dec. 20 CBS News reported that American municipalities are allowing chromium 6 to be added to the nation’s drinking water. Austin also adds fluoride to its water and taxpayers are paying for the poison. “In tests on laboratory animals, fluoride has been shown to enhance the brain's absorption of aluminum - the substance that's found in the brains of most Alzheimer's patients. And excessive fluoride has been shown to damage the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, leading to limited joint mobility, ligament calcification, muscular degeneration and neurological deficits,” states the Health Science Institute.


Remember the movie Erin Brockvich starring Julia Roberts. The lead character discovers that thousands of people in her town were dying of cancer. Her investigation led to a lawsuit, which showed that the people had been poisoned by Cr. VI. A study by the Environmental Works Group claims that 74 million people in 42 states regularly drink tap water with high concentrations of chromium 6 “much of it likely in the cancer-causing hexavalent form.”


Think back to last summer when McDonald’s was forced to recall more than 12 million “Shrek 3” glasses contaminated with the toxic metal cadmium as well as lead. McDonald’s said the glasses were actually meant for adults only!


In a Nov. 2009 article entitled “Killing the Consumer”, Ms. Inez Moore Tenenbaum, Chairman of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission question whether the U.S. government and the corporations it fails to adequately regulate “have been conspiring to eliminate the American consumer who can’t afford high quality goods?”
Nowadays when I walk into a supermarket I am made mindful of the Jews, Gypsies, Communist and other undesirables who were marched into death chambers with promises of being able to shower. But, instead of being sprayed with cleansing water they were doused with poison gas.


Walk down any aisle of any supermarket today and you can find some sort of poisonous or harmful ingredients in almost all the products you are being sold.
Want some bottled water? Studies have indicated that food and drinks stored in such containers can contain trace amount of Bisphenol A (BPA), a synthetic chemical that interferes with the body’s natural hormonal messaging system.


How about some soda instead. After all soda is just water with some other ingredients added like Cabonic Acid, Phosphoric Acid, Sodium, Benzoate, Caffeine, Artificial Flavors, Colourants, and Sugar


Do you buy canned goods? Many canned goods contain large amounts of sodium, which is added to increase product shelf life. Extended shelf life could lead to reduced human life in regular consumers of processed foods. High fructose corn syrup is found in many canned goods, particularly canned fruits. Remember the BPA in plastic bottles, it is also found in canned goods because it too extends shelf life while shortening that of consumers.


How about bread, you wonder? Most of it has been processed. The Digestive Wellness Center states “Processed food is made from real food that has been put through devitalizing chemical processes and is infused with chemicals and preservatives.”


Next stroll over to the meat department and chose your poison. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), more than 10 million animals that were dying or diseased when slaughtered were “rendered” (processed into a protein-rich meal) in 1995 for addition to pig, poultry and pet food. Animals that collapse at the slaughterhouse door or during transportation are called “downers,” and their corpses are routinely processed for human consumption.


"Euthanized cats and dogs often end up in rendering vats along with other questionable material to make meat meal, and meat and bone meal. In short, that means the poisons used to put pets to sleep are the same ones being fed to the ones alive and awake.


But not to worry the pharmaceutical companies have prescriptions for whatever ails you. Their drugs won’t cure you, but they will make you feel better while you stay sick, assuming the side effects aren’t fatal.


We can continue marching like lambs to the slaughter or open our eyes to what is being done to us in order to learn what we can do to stop it. You have a choice; you can choose life or you can choose lazy
