In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful.
Greetings to you. I am Minister Louis Farrakhan, National Representative of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, that Great Preacher of Freedom, Justice and Equality to the Black man and woman of America and the Western Hemisphere, and to the Aboriginal People of the Earth; The Eternal Leader of the Nation of Islam, and a Warner to the government and people of the United States of America and a Warner to the nations of the Earth.
Our subject today on the 37th edition of “The Time and What Must Be Done,” is titled:
“Wicked Policy and America’s National Interest.”
‘Policy’ defined: What is America’s policy to the Third World?
Last week in Part 36 we talked about the policy of our government to depopulate the third world by putting sterilants in the water and in staple foods, as well as other methodologies. This “depopulation” is driven by policy which concerns the national interests of America for the raw materials of third world nations: the land, the water, as well as minerals, gold, silver, uranium, and oil. We also spoke on Dr. Henry Kissinger’s National Security Study Memorandum 200, which stated this policy of depopulation that was accepted under President Gerald Ford, and was reintroduced again under President Jimmy Carter. And unfortunately, it’s still policy today toward the Third World.
We also mentioned that this depopulation policy was being implemented not only in the United States of America today through abortions and toxic poisons being added to our water supply, but it is also being introduced to developed nations of the West as well!
What is “policy”? According to the dictionary, “policy” is a noun which is defined as: 1.) a definite course of action adopted for the sake of expediency, facility; 2.) a course of action adopted and pursued by a government, ruler or political party; and 3.) it is an action or procedure conforming to or considered with reference to prudence or expediency. “Policy” is, as a definite course or method of action, selected from among alternatives and in light of given conditions to guide and determine present and future actions. Generally speaking, this means that any decision made by a government on how to act is considered to be “government policy.”
We then can understand that this “depopulation memorandum” that Dr. Kissinger introduced became the policy of our government; and unfortunately, is the policy of our government as this broadcast is being seen. It is policy with:
The United States Department of Agriculture
The United States Department of Defense
The “CIA” (Central Intelligence Agency)
The State Department; and
The United States Agency for International Development (“USAID”)
In terms of how this wicked policy of depopulation has affected Africa and the Third World: During my last visit to Zimbabwe, in southeastern Africa, we learned how the AIDS pandemic was killing 5,000 Zimbabweans a week—20,000 a month. And the biggest industry at the time in the capital city of Harare was the making of coffins … And although it was the Blacks who were dying of AIDS, I asked about the White population—were they dying of AIDS; and the answer was, “No, they were not.” I went to a luncheon sponsored by the Zimbabwean Department of Health, and a wonderful female doctor who was the Minister of Health was so proud to announce that every child in Zimbabwe was vaccinated with vaccines that had come from America and Europe.
I grieved over the widespread death due to the poisons, not “un”-intentionally put in vaccines, but intentionally put in vaccines to limit the population of Black people in those countries and places in the world where America’s needs for their vital minerals and resources were deemed necessary—in her mind—for her national interests; to keep America in the world as the “No. 1 superpower.”
Killing off tens of hundreds of thousands of people in Third World nations, because those nations trust the scholars and scientists of the Western world, White people, who claim to want to “help” them. While there are many White people who are sincere, they are the “fronts” that are used to open the door for the insincere Satanic Mind to enter, to practice evil under a claimed “noble motive.”
So The Enemy has not changed from the beginning of his creation, “killing the darker, saving the lighter.” And, that nature has not changed from the time of General Jeffrey Amherst in 1763, who put smallpox in blankets, and came to the Indians claiming that these blankets would “help comfort them through the winter”—using biological weapons against the Native people. And the fact that we were injected with the most virulent form of syphilis during the “Tuskegee Experiments” from 1932-1972 (40 years); allowing us to cohabit with others, to spread the disease! And all we got when it was discovered was an “apology,” and some meager, very meager, compensation. Also, millions of Americans were given polio shots starting in the 1950s and 1960s; and now, flu shots. And we don’t know what contagions or toxins are in the vial, or serum, that we are being injected with!
I went to Libya and spoke with Brother Leader, Muammar Gadhafi, and we advised him about setting up in Libya a pharmaceutical enterprise that would make medicines and vaccines for Africa and the Third World … Cuba has some of the cleanest vaccines to be found in the world! But the embargo on Cuba disallows her to produce what she would desire to produce for the health and well-being of the peoples of the world. This is why Gadhafi, in the mind of Europe and America, had to be destroyed—because he agreed to do this; and then, opened a $500 million hospital in Tripoli! I was present at the opening of that hospital, and next to that hospital was a team of scientists that were developing medicines and vaccines.
Vaccine policies, AIDS pandemic: Plans for ‘chemical and biological warfare’ outlined in Congressional hearings
In 1998, a Palestinian medical intern, along with five Bulgarian nurses, was found guilty by a Libyan court of intentionally infecting some 400 Libyan children with HIV in a Benghazi, Libya hospital. The case was remanded, and a second trial also ended in a guilty conviction. The six were incarcerated from 1998 until the Supreme Court of the Libyan government upheld the death sentence conviction in July of 2007.
The United States and the European Union had been constantly petitioning the Libyan government for their release, despite the first conviction; and even after the Court’s early July 2007 decision to uphold that conviction, an agreement was reached with the European Union that Libya would extradite these nurses to Bulgaria to serve their time in their own home country. And when they arrived, Bulgarian President Georgi Parvanov commuted their sentences, and freed the six.
It was reported in an article (“For Bulgarian nurses, freedom isn’t easy”) in The Christian Science Monitor on November 19, 2008 that although there were reports that the six were tortured for confessions, that: “… some Bulgarians still believe that the nurses are guilty,” and “Others view them as opportunistic,” referring to a reported deal to make a movie. But we see them as part of a policy of genocide. That America and this policy could be charged in the international criminal court with “genocide.”
The biological pandemic “AIDS” has a bleak, ominous—and questionable—history, when we consider a [June 9, 1969] “Subcommittee of The Committee on Appropriations House of Representatives Hearing” which contained the testimony of Dr. Donald M. MacArthur of the Army Advanced Research Project Agency, who testified on “Chemical and Biological Warfare” as follows: “… There are two things about the biological field agent I would like to mention. One is the possibility of technical surprise. Molecular biology is a field that is advancing very rapidly and eminent biologists believe that within a period of five to ten years, it would be possible to produce a synthetic biological agent, an agent that does not naturally exist and for which no natural immunity could have been acquired.”
What is “AIDS”? It is: Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome.
Dr. MacArthur later added that it was possible to make a “new infective micro-organism” that would be: “refractory to the immunological and therapeutic processes upon which we depend to maintain our relative freedom from infectious diseases.” What is the meaning of “refractory”? It’s an adjective that means: 1.) Uncontrollable; stubborn, rebellious; 2.) “heat-resistant” (physics industry - resistant to high temperatures and therefore not easily melted); and 3.) “not responsive to treatment” (medicine - unresponsive to medical treatment, as in a “refractory infection”). The report also deduced, “It is a highly controversial issue and there are many who believe such research should not be undertaken lest it lead to another method of massive killing of large populations.”
The request for the $10 million to pursue that research was granted in 1970 under House Bill 15090 to begin the study.
In a May 11, 1987 London Times article entitled, “Smallpox vaccine ‘triggered AIDS virus,’” by Pearce Wright (then the Times’ Science Editor), he wrote regarding a 13-year World Health Organization (“WHO”) so-called smallpox vaccine program: “The smallpox vaccine theory would account for the position of each of the seven Central African states which top the league table of most-affected countries; why Brazil became the most afflicted Latin American country”—it has 80 million sons and daughters of Africa in Brazil—“and how Haiti became the route for the spread of AIDS to the U.S.”
The greatest spread of HIV infection coincides with the most intense immunization programs, with the number of people immunized being as follows: In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, formerly known as “Zaire,” 36,878,000 people were vaccinated; in Zambia, 19,060,000; in Tanzania, 14,972,000; in Uganda, 11,616,000; in Malawi, 8,118,000; in Rwanda, 3,382,000; and in Burundi, 3,274,000. But the main one is Zaire, now the Democratic Republic of the Congo; and that is where the most mineral resources are that America needs are found. The smallpox innoculations in Zimbabwe from 1964-1973, when it was still called “Rhodesia,” was 13,410,444 Zimbabweans!
Mineral resources of Zimbabwe and The Democratic Republic of the Congo are as follows: Zimbabwe Industries are mining (coal, gold, platinum, copper, nickel, tin, diamonds, clay, numerous metallic and nonmetallic ores), steel; wood products, cement, chemicals, fertilizer, clothing and footwear, foodstuffs, beverages. And in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the industries of: mining (copper, cobalt, gold, diamonds, coltan, zinc, tin, tungsten), mineral processing, consumer products (textiles, plastics, footwear, cigarettes), metal products, processed foods and beverages, timber, cement, commercial ship repair. Could this be why there is constant civil war in The Congo?
There is an AIDS pandemic, as we speak, in the Black community! And the Black woman, it is said, is the “No. 1” carrier of the HIV virus.
On August 20, 1998, following a limited meeting of President [Bill] Clinton and six of his advisers, the world was surprised by a missile attack on a pharmaceutical plant in the Sudan. According to a September 1, 1998, New York Times article by Tim Wiener and James Risen, the purpose of greater secrecy of the “small group” was to prevent leaks. This attack was somehow combined with an attack in Afghanistan aimed at Osama bin Laden in retaliation for two U.S. embassy bombings in East Africa! They said that Osama bin Laden was then living in The Sudan. The article continued, however, that: “…within days of the attack, some of the [Clinton] administration’s explanations for destroying the factory in Sudan proved inaccurate. Many people inside and outside the U.S. government began to ask whether questionable intelligence had prompted the United States to blow up [the wrong building]”—that pharmaceutical building.
President Clinton came before the American people and said that in that building they were making “weapons of mass destruction,” when, in fact, they were doing the very thing that Brother Gadhafi was doing: Making medicines and vaccines to heal the condition of African people. And, of course, that would have interfered with the policy of our government to depopulate these countries.
America seeks to destroy anyone who opposes her policies. Anyone who stands in the way of such policies that interfere with America’s national interests, she plots and she plans to destroy them!
I respectfully ask our government, the Secretary of State John Kerry: How can you say Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is such a bad man because he is killing his own people, when we have a policy in place, in our government, that is killing not only Third World people, but it is our foreign policy? What governments on the Earth can trust us with vaccines, with food, with your saying that you have a desire to give them potable water; water that’s fit or suitable for drinking?
You say that you want to fight against malaria and the mosquitoes—and we are so trusting: We will not take what you give, and examine it scientifically, though we have scientists that are qualified and capable to do that. The whole Earth is in The Valley of The Shadow of Death. And “a pale horse” that is in the Book of Revelation, Chapter 6, verse 8, where it says, “death is the rider and hell follows behind that rider”—that pale horse is hurting the Earth and its people: “And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.”
Satan is transforming himself into some type of “angel of light,” saying he wants to “help the world,” while at the same time Satan is a pathological liar and a psychopath of the worst kind, who can never admit his own fault and he kills without any conscious or thought of mercy. Only what Satan deems is good for himself. No wonder when we say our Oft-Repeated Prayers, we open by saying: “I seek refuge in Allah against the accursed Satan.”
Paul, The Apostle, in the Book of Ephesians, Chapter 6, verse 12, says: “We war not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers, and the rulers of the darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high places”; and in the Book of 2 Corinthians, Chapter 11, verses 13-14, Paul says: “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.”
Well, who are these people, “spiritual wickedness that is in high places”? This is talking about spiritual leaders who are being used to fight against The Truth of The Gospel of Jesus The Christ.
A poisoned, toxic people: We must learn How To Eat To Live
Putting poison in the water to sterilize human beings so that the gift of reproduction, which God gives to every creature to maintain and sustain and reproduce itself: That very process is being killed by food that we need to eat, water that we need to drink; poison in the air that we need to breathe, and poison in the earth that is under our foot to produce what we put in our mouths as food and as seeds for planting.
Yes, even the seeds, too, are poisoned. And in next week’s broadcast, we will mention “Monsanto” and “DuPont,” and what they’re doing to seeds.
In the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s monumental book, “How to Eat to Live, Book 1,” the Honorable Elijah Muhammad wrote over 50 years ago about the dangers of chemical sterilants and additives being put in our water and food! [By the way, all of you: If you don’t have this book, why don’t you write to us and get a copy of it? And if you have it, take it down and re-read it. And when we get into this book on “How To Eat To Live,” we will bring you the new writings from the M.G.T. & G.C.C. class of The Nation of Islam that will show you not only what to eat, but how to cook it; and the nutritional value of everything that you put in your mouth. Watch for it in upcoming broadcasts!]
On Page 26, in the chapter “How Allah’s Way Prolongs Life,” he writes: “Many are advertising what to eat, and what medicines to take to make you eat or stop you from eating. Many books are written and sold on good and bad foods, as well as on reducing the weight and on how to increase the weight, introducing the many chemicals used to bring about the desired result. But Allah, in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom praises are due forever, has given us a better and safer way to do these things.” Which, of course, we will go into in future broadcasts. And on Pages 107-108, in the chapter “Poisonous Food and Water,” the Honorable Elijah Muhammad continues:
“Take, for instance, the use of fluoride, chloride, and sodium, which if not used correctly can destroy our entire life. Maybe it is best to find something else that will clear our water without killing both us and the poison in our food and water. The scientist should not advocate the use of such poisonous chemicals as fluoride, chloride, and sodium, which may have a bad effect on our brains and our human reproductive organs. The scientist that uses such poison on human beings wants to either minimize the birth rates or cause the extinction of a people. D.D.T., which is sprayed on food while it is growing up from the earth, is also a poison that should not be put into the human body, regardless of the desire to kill the insects that loves to dine on the same food on which we dine. The poison may not take instant [effect] on us, as it does the insects, but it can, over the long years, help shorten the span of our lives. We live in a world commercializing on everything where money is involved, and this has speeded production of everything but human lives, in order to fill the demand of the people. This has caused many scientists to overlook the dangerous effects that such fast production has on the health of the people. Therefore, the only way out for us, the poor Lost-Found Black man and woman of America, is to seek refuge and guidance in Allah for our protection from the evil plannings and doings of Satan. Allah (God) has pointed out to us in both the Bible and the Holy Qur’an the right foods for us to eat and He has pointed out the poisonous food and drinks. Follow Allah (God’s) guidance or suffer the consequences.”
In fact, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad says of his teachings: “What I am teaching you is life! Accept it and live! Reject it, and the consequences are an untimely and early death.”
Remember the words of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad when he spoke of the scientists that use such poison on human beings. Elijah Muhammad said they either want to: 1.) “minimize the birth rates” of human beings, or 2.) “cause the extinction of a people.” That is very serious, for both of these are a part of “The Convention on Genocide.”
What is “genocide”? According to Article 2 of “The Convention on The Prevention and Punishment of The Crime of Genocide” [adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on December 9, 1948, enforced on January 12, 1951], it states: “In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: (a) Killing members of the group; (b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; (d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; and (e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.”
My dear people of America, my dear brothers and sisters, all of that is going on right now as of this broadcast. We are being the victims of genocide. And you know, we could take our government, with these polices, to the International Criminal Court. But most of the nations of the Earth have signed that they will not take Americans, or American citizens, to the International Criminal Court. And America has used the threat of what she gives to these nations, that she will “take it away” if they don’t sign that they will never bring an American before the International Criminal Court.
The Law of Use and The Law of Abuse, and how foods affect thoughts
Did you know that there is such a thing as a “Law of Use” and a “Law of Abuse”? According to law, “use” as a term in real property law of common law countries amounts to: “a recognition of the duty of a person, to whom property has been conveyed for certain purposes, to carry out those purposes.” I have mentioned in prior broadcasts that when Allah (God) gives you something, you must use it in the way that God has given it, and intended for it to be used! Because the misuse of a gift brings “The Law of Abuse” into play; and “The Law of Abuse” means that you lose what you had by abusing it, or not properly using it.
The present stewards of our planet, and its people, have abused “The Law of Use”—and poisoned the earth, the air, the water, the food supply. Even the people are toxic: These evil scientists that put fluoride, sodium fluoride into Prozac; and then tell you of its “side effects,” that if you take it, some of the side effects are that you might become suicidal: How many medicines that we are taking are like this?
So, if chemistry can produce suicidal thoughts: Are there also chemicals that can be put in the water, and the food, not only to sterilize and reduce the ability of the human being to reproduce, but is there chemistry that can produce thoughts that makes one think that they are feminine in the biological body of a man, or masculine in the biological body a woman? That we would begin to think that “there is a woman inside of me,” trying to get out to be itself; or, there’s “a man inside of a female,” trying to get out—to answer the call to be “a man”? Could it be that we are victims of wicked chemistry, and the deliberate misuse of it? I believe this is true.
We are under the scourge of biological weapons; we are under the scourge of chemical weapons, and, we are slowly dying—and dying with the loss of ability to reproduce ourselves.
We need our own masters of chemistry and biology. That’s why we’re asking our students in the South, the HBCUs in Alabama, in Georgia, in Mississippi, in Louisiana and Texas: The 18th Anniversary of The Million Man March will be in that great little city of Tuskegee, where we are going to celebrate the greatness of that city, and the city of that institution! And we are inviting all of the students to come; and, we’re going to have a conference on the subjects that we must learn that are being offered in these institutions! Don’t go to college just to get a degree to put it on your wall, and say, “See mommy! I finished college! I have a degree”—but there’s no use for it! We have a world to build! And we have a people to save! And if we’re being killed through chemistry and biology, shouldn’t we become masters of chemistry and biology?
Don’t we have people who are masters of chemistry and biology? Of course we do. We cannot continue to allow our enemies to vaccinate us and our children! They make it “the law”—and it is the law, in some places, that we can’t go to school unless we allow them to vaccinate us! But why should we trust you to vaccinate us and our children? Our children are all we have: Should we put our children in the hands of those who have used chemistry and biology, and vaccinations, to lessen our power to reproduce, and to kill us off?
No. We must develop the scientists that will examine whatever you offer us, because we know you as a blood shedder, we know you as a liar, we know you as a deceiver and a murderer! So why would we trust you with our precious gift, our children? In the 1960s, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad advised his followers not to take the polio vaccine. He said some of the early vaccines we could take; but now that this Kissinger National Security Study Memorandum 200 on depopulation is the policy of our government, then we have to be careful of what injections we allow ourselves to take!
Did you know that there are different flu vaccine shots? According to one of our researchers, he went to the doctor, and she recommended a flu shot; and he refused, saying that he didn’t want a flu shot due to the excessive mercury and other additives used as preservatives. And she told him: “Oh! We have a flu shot that is a non-preservative, that does not have any additives that we give to Jewish people, and those who are knowledgeable about the chemical additives in these vaccines …” Wow … However, the general population does not have this knowledge to make this choice.
Our Native American brothers and sisters respected this land, and they protected it, but they didn’t make full use of it. So Allah (God) allowed the Caucasian to take it from them by The Law of Use. And “By The Time”—and What Must Be Done—“surely man is in loss, except those who believe and do good. And enjoin one another to truth, and enjoin one another to patience.” So “goodness” will allow us to stay on the land!
Proper use of all of the gifts that God has given to us is a part of “being good.” Proper use of the gifts of the animals that God gives us is a part of our ability not to suffer loss. But once we engage in the abuse of what God has given, then He has the right to take it what He has given us from us, and give it to another who will bring in that which that land was supposed to reward us with as its steward, if it were properly tended to, or cultivated, or used properly.
In the 3rd Chapter, the 26th verse of the Holy Qur’an, Allah is telling Muhammad to say: “O Allah, Owner of the Kingdom, Thou givest the kingdom to whom Thou pleasest, and takest away the kingdom from whom Thou pleasest, and Thou exaltest whom Thou pleasest and abasest whom Thou pleasest. In Thine hand is the good. Surely, Thou art Possessor of power over all things.” So to believe in God and to follow God’s Guidance and Admonition is the real doing of good!
In the Book of Genesis, Chapter 1, verse 28, it reads: “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and [over] every creeping thing that crawleth upon the earth.” So looking again at the abuse by those who are the stewards of the Earth and its animals and resources: Well, you were given time to rule, but God knew what you were going to do. And that’s why the angels said to Allah (Surah 2, verse 30): “What will you place in the earth as a ruler but that which will create mischief and cause the shedding of blood?”—and by so doing, the present rulers have violated their stewardship over a creation that they had nothing to do with its creation.
This is Allah (God’s) creation, and you violated it by your misuse and abuse of His Creation.
How our food is denatured through added hormones, unnatural chemical ripening
In his monumental book How to Eat to Live, Book 2, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad talks about “the denaturing of food”; and he tells us that when we go to the health food store to buy pills, the pills are not satisfactory to give you the nutrients that have been taken from the food.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad writes on Page 93, in Chapter 25, “Food Robbed of Natural Vitamins”: “When the vitamins and proteins are chemically taken out of natural foods, it makes the food less valuable. The chemicals used to take out vitamins and proteins from their natural place in food and the chemicals used to keep and preserve the vitamins and proteins make it not too safe for us to eat vitamins and proteins in pills and liquid form. It is a pity that the good food is robbed for the sake of a commercial dollar.” On Pages 107-108, in Chapter 29, “Swine Eats Anything,” he writes: “America’s markets are loaded with swine, and loaded with vegetables and fruits which are preserved and made to look beautiful by having poisonous chemicals poured upon them. There are thousands, and hundreds of thousands of herds of cattle and sheep and there are hundreds of thousands of fowls. Yet, Americans decorate their tables with the divinely -prohibited flesh—the swine—and represent themselves as being the true Christian followers of Jesus.”
Well, in Chapter 47, “Doctor Falls Victim of Same Sickness,” on Page 158, he writes: “IF THE MEDICAL DOCTORS and the theologian teachers and scientists of chemicals, are indulging and are not successful in expanding their own lives in what they are offering to us to eat and drink, then why should we follow their way of life? The chemical doctors go to the earth to get chemicals to heal themselves and us. These chemicals soon will destroy both [them and us]. “[Our] bodies were not made to be supported by chemicals for health and longevity. The fact is the body of man was not to be drugged. …” And they are turning down, now, much of their medication, which is absolutely poison and detrimental to us.
It is prophesied in the Holy Qur’an that when The God of Truth, Freedom, Justice and Equality comes, He will force this evil world to confess its evil. And this, they are now doing. So there are forces, now, pushing the small farmer out, causing the small farmers to lose their farms so that these farms can be eaten up by the larger corporate farmers.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration approve techniques that are being developed to fatten the sheep and the cows faster. Hormones are injected into them, going against the natural way, to fatten them to get them to market faster; the coloring and other additives added to the food is denaturing the food! And because of the distances that food now has to travel to come to the marketplace, chemical preservatives are added to keep the food from rotting, rather than the family farmer, who lived at the outskirts of the city; and could bring their produce fresh directly to the city so we have it fresh, today.
You, the farmer, the worker, pick it “today,” it’s in the market tomorrow; and, it’s brought up by the people in “the next few days”: So we did not have to use chemicals to preserve or to help the ripening process by pulling it from the vine before it is ripe; or taking it from the ground before it is ripe. So all of these techniques to produce more money is also producing more disease in food that lacks nutritional value. Our food is being denatured.
In 2009, a Times magazine health segment writer, M.J. Stephey, asked the question, “Eating Your Veggies: Not As Good For You?” He reports on a Journal of Horticultural Science, February 2009 report on “Declining Fruit and Vegetable Nutrient Composition: What is the Evidence?”]; he writes: “According to Donald R. Davis, a former research associate with the Biochemical Institute at the University of Texas, Austin. Mr. Davis claims the average vegetable found in today’s supermarket is anywhere from 5% to 40% or more lower in minerals (including magnesium, iron, calcium and zinc) than those harvested just 50 years ago.”
When you compare the loss of land, the death of the industry of farming and the small farmer, and then you look at the value of the food that was produced by the small farmer and the value of the food that is being produced by the large corporate-owned farmers, you will find the disparity is what we are suffering from. So the pharmaceutical companies are getting rich to produce chemistry to overturn the effect of the chemical value of foods.
In other words: The natural function of your body is continued by the natural producing of food and drink. But when you alter the food, then that begins the altering of the function of the organs of your body, producing disease. So that these pharmaceutical companies, now, are getting wealthy; because when you get sick you go to the doctor, he sends you to the pharmacy; and the pharmacy, now, is drugging you and charging us all kinds of money to keep us alive. But what quality of life do we have?
Ripening process: [I heard that there is a law or practice that if the fruit falls to the ground, you cannot sell it or bring it to market; because if it falls to the ground it is ripe—so they won’t accept it in the market when you bring your produce to be sold.] And so, you have to pick the fruit before it ripens. And a “ripening process” can be used not necessarily by the grower, but by the person who is buying from the grower: The un-ripened food is colored, and then the food is gassed to ripen it. So when you get your food at the supermarket, no matter how wonderful it looks: It was plucked before ripened, and then “ripened”; so it is never as sweet, and not as nutritional as food that we could allow to ripen!
Pregnant mother, this is like getting your baby when you’re only six, or five months pregnant: You can’t take that baby home! They have to develop something compatible to your womb, so that they can nurture that baby for growth and development, so that soon you’ll be able to take that baby home with you! Well, it is the same principle: 1.) Pluck the food before it’s ripe, 2.) put it in an environment to chemically ripen and color it, and 3.) then send it to the market. And in that process, you also do something to extend its life—because after “ripe,” the next stage is rotten. So the only way you can protect yourself from the stage of “rotten” is that you pluck it before it’s ripe, put it under these conditions, and then put it in the market! Well, you have to apply some additive to it to extend its life.
‘Eating Unripened Food Is Harmful’: A farmer that lives close to our little farm in Michigan said to my son-in-law, when he went to visit him: His wife was very sick, and he was also; and he told my son-in-law, “I never got sick until I stopped eating from the land of what we produced and starting eating from the supermarket.” Well, in Current Science (Vol. 99, No. 12), the December 25, 2010 edition, medical doctor Wasim Siddiqui and R. S. Dhua, who are in the Department of Post Harvest Technology of Horticultural Crops and on the Faculty of Horticulture, wrote a paper entitled: “Eating Artificially Ripened Fruits is Harmful.” They state: “Most fruit sellers use Calcium carbide for ripening the fruits. Calcium carbide is extremely hazardous to the human body as it contains traces of arsenic and phosphorus. It is banned in many countries of the world, but it is freely used in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and other countries. Thus we are at risk of short-term and long-term health effects simply by eating fruits that are induced to ripen.” Well, you remember that in India, Mr. Rothschild took over the development of fruits and vegetables, and has become the largest grower of fruits and vegetables! And now those fruits and vegetables are eaten in Europe, in America, and in other parts of the world.
‘Hormones in Food: Should you worry?’: In an article by Carina Storrs, posted on Health.com dated January 31, 2011 entitled “Hormones in Food: Should you worry?”, it discussed the negative effects of hormonally-fattened livestock, and even salmon: “A salmon that grows to market size twice as fast as normal. Dairy cows that produce 15 percent more milk. Beef cows that grow 20 percent faster. What do these hyper-productive animals have in common? Thanks to injections and implants (in the case of cows) or genetic engineering (in the case of salmon), they contain artificially high levels of sex or growth hormones. …” Ms. Storrs continues in the section “Growth hormones”: “In 1993, the FDA approved recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH), a synthetic cow hormone that spurs milk production when injected into dairy cows, and consumer groups have been concerned about it ever since. The manipulation of growth hormone in the AquaBounty salmon has sparked similar concerns. The actual fear is that manipulating growth hormones in cows—or salmon—may increase another hormone, insulin-like growth factor (IGF), which could mimic the effects of human growth hormone in harmful ways. The article continues: In fact, research has found that milk from rBGH-treated cows contains up to 10 times more Insulin-like growth factors than other milk. Higher blood levels of the Insulin-like Growth Factor, regardless of what causes them, have been associated with an increased risk of breast, prostate, and other cancers in humans. In a 2004 study, patients with above-average Insulin-like Growth Factor levels had nearly a 50 percent higher risk of prostate cancer and a 65 percent higher risk of hormone-dependent premenopausal breast cancer than people with below-average levels.”
What is producing this? It is because of the food that we are eating. Black people, now, have some of the highest rates of cancer disease; diabetes, lupus … The insulin-like growth factors are proteins with high sequence similarity to insulin; these “IGFs” are part of a complex system that cells use to communicate with their physiologic environment. Well, in the section on “Sex hormones and early puberty,” she writes: “Insulin-like growth factors are not the only hormone found in the food supply. Ranches have been fattening up cattle with sex hormones—most notably estrogen—since the 1950s. Today most beef cows in the U.S.—except those labeled ‘organic’—receive an implant in their ear that delivers a hormone, usually a form of estrogen (estradiol) in some combination with five other hormones. (These hormones are not given to chicken and pigs because they don’t have the same growth-promoting effect in these animals, although antibiotics are given to all three species for similar growth-promoting reasons.) One concern is that such hormones may spur earlier puberty in children, who are, on average, entering puberty at a younger age than they did a generation or two ago, for reasons that are unclear.”
“Unclear” maybe to the scientists, but not unclear to Allah and His Messiah!
This article goes on to state: “However, even miniscule amounts of estrogen could affect prepubescent girls and boys, says Dr. Walter Willett,”(chairman of the department of nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health, in Boston). This estrogen put in the food supply is negatively affecting the male reproductive system, killing the sperm in males and limiting the growth in the male sexual organ. “A 2009 study found that children who consumed the most protein from animal sources entered puberty about seven months earlier than those who consumed the least. …” Brothers and sisters, this is all science! And it is really not only “genetic engineering,” but it is also “social engineering” on top of genetic engineering!
If these added hormones stimulate the sexual hormones in the development of our young boys and girls, then you have food that is stimulating this “sex craze” visualized in the movies, on televisions, in theaters, in music, and in lyrics! So as the desire “to eat” is natural, and as the desire for “sex” is natural; and as you grow hormonally, then, at a certain point in our development, we are ready to reproduce. But when that development starts at eight and nine and 10 years of age, and you start seeing children with breasts and hips, and getting their menses at eight and nine years of age; and boys developing sperm earlier, then sexual experimentation and sexual abuse, and putting child pornography and using children across the world for sexual purposes, is now going on at an extremely alarming rate!
Seek refuge from ‘the mischief of created things’
My beloved brothers and sisters, and people of the United States of America and the world, I close with the 113th Chapter of the Holy Qur’an, Al-Falaq (“The Dawn”):
“In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful. I seek refuge in the Lord of the dawn, From the mischief of created things, And from the evil of intense darkness, when it comes, And from the evil of those who cast (evil suggestions) in firm resolutions, And from the evil of the envier when he envies.”
The Enemy is taking natural things, created things, and making mischief with it! So by our being affected by this sexual craze, that is how AIDS is spreading so fast. Somebody is introducing AIDS to our girls; and now, we are having sex, and some of us are experiencing sex at five and six years old!
What is this world coming to? The answer lies in the food we eat. In the drinks we drink. And in the thoughts we think. Food influences thought. And Jesus said, “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”
This is why we have to have land. We have to begin farming! We have to take land that is not being used, and seek government permission—or even get together in your communities, and buy the vacant lot. And then learn gardening, and how to garden; and then get good seeds and start planting food, because it is only when you plant, and know what you’re planting, and eat what you plant; then your health will improve, and your doctors’ bills will subside.
And when we get into “How To Eat To Live,” and show you how this is done, we can get away from so much drugs in medical form.
Thank you for reading these words. May Allah grant to each of us The Light of Understanding, as I greet you in peace: As-Salaam Alaikum.
