I currently don't know of anyone that buys animal products from supermarkets in general. GMO, growth-hormones in the milk, bleached ammoniac chicken, seeds that grow their own fertiliser inside the husk that pests or rats won't even touch…a supermarket using globalist practices and government sanctioned suppliers are pushing poison onto the public at large, and as we saw with the horse meat scandal, the poorest of society are hardest hit.

The supermarkets above have just sanctioned the practice of not labelling animal products that have been raised on GMO feed. This allows the pushers of GMO poisons (like MONSANTO) to gain a foothold in the UK mass market, as they now dominate in the USA.

"Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH)

This genetically modified hormone was developed by Monsanto to be injected into dairy cows to produce more milk. Cows subjected to rBGH suffer excruciating pain due to swollen udders and mastitis, and the pus from the resulting infection enters the milk supply requiring the use of additional antibiotics. rBGH milk has been linked to breast cancer, colon cancer, and prostate cancer in humans."

"A Baker’s Dozen: Terminator Seeds

In the late 1990s, Monsanto developed the technology to produce sterile grains unable to germinate. These “Terminator Seeds” would force farmers to buy new seeds from Monsanto year after year, rather than save and reuse the seeds from their harvest as they’ve been doing throughout centuries. Fortunately this technology never came to market. Instead, Monsanto chose to require farmers to sign a contract agreeing that they will not save or sell seeds from year to year, which forces them to buy new seeds and preempts the need for a “terminator gene.” Lucky for us… since the terminator seeds were capable of cross-pollination and could have contaminated local non-sterile crops."

The best way to offset this is to buy locally grown, ethically raised animal products and vegetables, but we can raise awareness about the supermarket's practices by hitting them where it hurts...in their profits. Demand to know the history of your foodstuffs...

Peter Melchett, Policy Director of the Bristol-based Soil Association said:
“Tesco and the Co-Op are misleading their customers by claiming that the GM
feed will not be detectable in products like eggs, milk or chicken. This is
not true. Several research studies have found that GM DNA in animal feed is
taken up by the animal’s organs and can then be detected in the milk, meat
and fish that people eat. This has been confirmed by the FSA. He added:
“M&S, Co-Op and Tesco are also misleading their customers by claiming that
non-GM feed isn’t available. They are wrong. In Brazil alone, there is
enough non-GM animal feed to supply the whole of Europe.”
