Save our RAW Greens

US Department of Agriculture Plans to Irradiate (they call it Pasteurize) ALL Raw Greens.

Save our Raw Greens

Our “beloved” government intends to require that all greens be pasteurized prior to sale, and their open comment period from the public runs only until this Monday, Dec. 3! We need to make our opinions heard and registered immediately if we hope to be able to still buy raw greens in the supermarkets.

Take Action:

All details are to be found at Raw Food News Magazine.

The proposal is for federal regulations to mandate the ‘pasteurization’ of all greens. And as bad as that sounds, it gets worse: the FDA has started using the word ‘pasteurize’ as a euphemism or cover for what they really are up to, which is irradiation.

We’ve seen this coming (they’ve already mandated ‘pasteurizing’ almonds– burning them with carcinogenic, banned rocket fuel… yes, really!)– but they’ve sprung it on us, revealing their plan only recently, and allowing only till Monday, Dec. 3 for public comment. (In the past, the FDA had comment periods of several weeks or even months. This is obscene!
