The Richest People Have A Plan For Food Shortages: The ‘Sniff Test’


 

A WEF video released Wednesday sang support for British supermarkets choosing to remove the “use by” or “best before” date on different types of produce. It is now suggested that citizens use a “sniff test” to establish the freshness of their food. Just the first step by the WEC to prepare for the coming storm.

More than one way to get us to eat bugs. More than one way to make those with health problems get really sick. First the fruit… then… Why is the WEF even in this anyway?

Put this one down as stupid.

Apparently the decision is part of an effort to limit food waste, but the timing is highly questionable. Unless you’re living a one-hundred percent sustainable homesteading life, you’ve probably noticed that food prices are going up as supplies become scarce.

Back in May, Germany’s Economic Minister Robert Habeck said the then-impending food shortage would be a “catastrophe.” He noted that WEF could work with policy makers to tackle global hunger, and I guess this is their first attempt.

There are few things more stupid and evil than a group of people who think they know what’s best for people they don’t even know, and that’s exactly how one can define the WEF. Then again, maybe we should have never had “use by” dates on our food at all, so we could maintain a degree of our common sense when it comes to what we put in our bodies.

    Crickets anyone? I actually like these and carry them in my pack.

    You know the Illinois prison system did a major meatless protein menu and got very sick prisoners. In theory it checked off all the boxes, especially the budgetary one, but in practice it ruined prisoners’ health. These soy-based meals were stopped within months for the women because they stopped menstruating, but the men had to endure years of bad health from the diet which was finally changed in 2019.

      Thank goodness for the government. What would we ever do without it? Did the warden or anyone in the state prison apparatus feel bad about what they did? Naw. Anyway, who wants catfights in the dining hall or convicted murderers getting an early release to participate in Mr. America contests?

        Sarc! Nope, the prison fought the lawsuit tooth and nail. Plaintiffs documented heart issues, thyroid damage, endocrine disruption, brain fog, fatigue, panic attacks, more frequent infections along with allergic reactions and gastrointestinal problems from the soy, whose extremely high oxalate content also damages kidneys, joints, heart, blood vessels, teeth, gums, eyes, skin, brain, nerves, thyroid and thymus. Think about THAT when the fake meaters start foisting their trash on people in earnest. It’s not all soy, but it is plenty bad in other ways.

        Prison should not be a cakewalk, but once you have a criminal in your custody you have the legal obligation to feed them properly and supply medical care. NY Governor Hochul lost her bid to set up detainment camps for citizens. Not a stretch to imagine part of that “punishment” could saunter over to the kind of purposeful dietary and medical gaps more likely to have been found in the prisons of African despots or the Gulags of the reds under the guise of climate crisis.

        We have a danger in such distrust of government (which it has WELL earned, and visibly so in the last 30 months) that we forget the aspects of human nature that require a framework for orderly conduct, protection and settlement of disputes. I don’t want NO governance. That fact that our government (read Soros backed DA’s all over the country and border protection) has ‘forgotten’ its role is truly endangering us.

    Since the Democrats are so fond of sweeping legislative controls, why not just mandate all foods be chock full of nitrates or consist of 90% processed sugar? That way, they could have a shelf life of 1000 years and the people who are left might be likely to buy and consume them. Survive? That’s relative.

      The sniff program is just another method the government has for “pulling the plug” on the aged and infirm. All of those “we truly care about you” social programs are total B.S. Americans bought into those scams because they dearly wanted to believe their government was the best the world had to offer and that government really did care about them. BS Squared.

      In any case, how does one “sniff” foods that have been packaged and sealed against people sticking their noses into the unsealed contained???

        Yes, I saw meat in that video. In the US we don’t have ‘use by’ dates on green grocer products and do indeed evaluate by the condition of the food. But meat? This is a food safety issue.

        I never ever buy prepackaged lettuce. Period. The pre-cut pieces are the worst for bacterial contamination along the cut edges. I wince at group lunches when I see ladies rip open such bags and dump them in the community salad bowl. I did it once, but aggressively washed with vinegar water to kill bacteria first, then discarded anything that ‘looked’ like it should be tossed. We are very spoiled with food safety and the protection from the kinds of illnesses that made our ancestors sick before refrigeration and civil sanitary engineering. That has done more to protect us than all the vaccines and hand washing could ever hope to do.

      Mark, they already have a product like that. Hostess Twinkies survived extended storage in a formal university research test that lasted probably the length of a student’s tenure in his program. The bugs ate the cardboard they sat on, they ate the label and glue – but the completely nutrient contentless Twinkies survived.

    One should probably ask the question, “Why did food companies begin using ‘USE BY’ dates to begin with? Dr. Laura Brown (Teesside University) is correct when she observes that USE BY dates addressed food safety, and ‘BEST BEFORE’ dates were about food quality. The largest ace is that one cannot always smell the bacteria that will kill you. There is no better way to destroy the confidence people have in their food provider than by saying to them, “Here, you figure it out.” Not everyone has a reliable schnozzle … especially as they grow older. That said, Co-Op is on a par with Aldi’s, and Morrisons is where almost no one shops if they can avoid it, and the policy seems only to affect their own brands. Still, this is a very bad move — and, IMO, a stupid business decision.

      Then there is the larger issue as to why the WEF feels a need to expend resources in producing this little nugget. I have left the issue of the suggestion of eating bugs, human remains as a remedy to food shortages slide by in posting about it. This one cuaght my attention. Just the start..

      I notice the old “steak” is included as well in the clip. Eat some bad meat or veggies and one can get a nasty illness that can kill you.

        My sense of smell is damaged by many years of heavy smoking, but insofar as it exists, it fully returned after I recovered from a bout with Covid. As far as I know, that is the norm. However, many of the bacteria that can kill you are odorless.

      Should we emulate the WWII Brits when whose food supplies were in short supply due to the war in the Atlantic they were urged to use every available square foot of land to plant truck farms and responded in kind. Not likely a solution in a country where might we say a majority of Americans depend on the Golden Arches et al for their food. Besides people wending their way through the bureaucratic spiderwebs of regulations would die before planting their first seeds. People depending on theirselves, self reliance, is antithetical to what todays government demands from both its black and white plantations. I for one refuse to trash the Oreos with an expiration of yesterday.

        You’re right, Peter. Damn it, you’re always right. Harken back to those heady days prior to the second great war when tens of thousands of young men and women left their parent’s farms and made their way to the mid-to-large sized towns and cities — and a good time was had by all. But somewhere along the line, the American people un-learned self-reliance and independence of thought and deed (and the consequences thereof) and substituted therefore roadside diners and instant burger joints with double-sized fries and a 62 ounce size of liquid sugar. And you know, when the government offers food stamps for food that will kill you, can it get any better? And even if it does kill you, government will pick up the tab. Face it, when you’re living on the street, who are they going to sue? Life gets simple on the street, so they say. And even if you’re on the street, you still get an iPhone and free internet because every American is entitled to a free cell phone. Also, Psssst … over here … free Covid booster. It’s enough to make you wonder if the government isn’t implanting computer chips that signal your exact location, within three millimeters, in case the government needs your advice on something.

        Right arm, man … Oreos to the people!

        One of the problems in Sri Lanka was the loss of classic knowledge about raising food in less than one generation. And I recall that in Michigan (I believe this was another Witless move) you couldn’t buy food seeds in grocery stores. Surviving on your own garden is a massive challenge unless that garden is chock full of animals. One family did: Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life

      ++++1. And yes, Bunk, there is a rudder shift in the direction of normalizing cannibalism. A Swedish professor Magnus Soderlund has stated that “humans should become cannibals to fight climate change.” Showtimes’ survival epic Yellowjackets’ “tension is in the knowledge that you know cannibalism is coming, but when? And why?” writes Alex Beggs who writes for the NTY and Bon Appetit. Cannibalism is gradually becoming a “win” for the planet. Dr. Mercola is more blunt: “The WEF and its allies are manufacturing food shortages, which in some areas may progress into actual famine, and they want you to know that when that time comes, it’s OK for you to eat your neighbor.” Which neighbors are going to volunteer? Do you think our founders could possible have imagined all the needs for having the 2nd Amendment?

        My personal view (not endorsed by any member of my family), is that the reason we have so many really-stupid people in the government and private businesses is that they consumed gargantuan amounts of Wheaties when they were still in their formative years.
