Quote from Edmond Bordeaux Szekely
Adapt or Non-exist, says Edmond Bordeaux Szekely
“Our adaptation to the natural forces
is a question of existence or non-existence.
We cannot transform the universe or nature so that they
adapt themselves to us; on the contrary, we must adapt ourselves
to nature and her laws.”
-Edmond Bordeaux Szekely.
“Nuestra adaptación a las fuerzas de la naturaleza
Es una cuestión de existencia o no existencia.
No podemos transformar el universo o la naturaleza a fin de que
se adaptan a nosotros, por el contrario, tenemos que adaptarnos
a la naturaleza y sus leyes. ”
-Edmond Bordeaux Szekely.
From “Starving America” 1912:
The food manufacturer fears to step outside the limits of a careful conservative campaign, because he feels that a radical departure from trade customs would jeopardize his business. As a commerrcial institution, he declares that his chief function is not to educate the masses, and points to the fact that no profit is to be derived from such
Because of these obstacles in the way of reform, the writer no longer looks to commercial publicity, or to legislation as means through which to eniighten the people. Most of the conditions described here are unknovm to our legislative bodies, and it will be a long time before Congress can be educated to that point, where the distressful facts here outlined will be noted and acted upon.
The reform work must be done in the schools.
Our children must be taught the meaning of depraved foods. They must learn how those foods are processed, bleached, colored, de-natured, de-germin ated, de-mineralized, chemically treated. They must be taught the relationship of such food to sickness and death. They must be taught the relationship of natural food to health and life. The true conditions, now concealed from the public, must be exposed, in order that the public may make its own choice, guarded by a complete knowledge of facts.
These facts are presented here in a manner understandable to the layman for the first time, and with the addition of the Catechism of Vital Questions and Answers, this work places before the people a full and complete exposure of the evil conditions, which unmolested, now menace the health and life of America.

Summary: An illuminating peek at the early—and fateful—politics of food adulteration. From 1906–1912, Dr. Wiley was the head of the USDA’s Bureau of Chemistry (later renamed Food and Drug Administration), the department charged with enforcing the country’s first food purity law, the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906. In this excerpt from his 1929 autobiography, Wiley details how the Bureau’s authority was illegally usurped by higher-ranking officials within the USDA under the influence of industrial food manufacturers. In one famous case, the solicitor of the USDA forbade Dr. Wiley and other workers of his Bureau from testifying in a federal case in which their testimony would have supported a ban of the food additive sodium benzoate, a compound Wiley and his fellow chemists had determined to be injurious to health yet, sadly, remains one of the most common food preservatives used today. Includes an introduction by Dr. Royal Lee. Special Reprint No. 1-60.
Corruption of the Pure Food Law of 1906 is related in the chapter of the autobiography of Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, who fought for food reform. Commercial interests won out. To this day, they have won out, leading us to the the condition of GMO in our food.
On the Work of Dr. Harvey W. Wiley
1902 An Act of the Unites States Congress was initiated by Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, M.D. “to investigate the character of food preservatives, coloring matters, and other substances added to foods, to determine their relation to digestion and health, and to establish the principles which should guide their use. Dr. Wiley became famous after 1902 after he organized what became by the media as the “Poison Squad.”
1906 Sir F.G. Hopkins, English Biochemist, noted that most food factors, (meaning the vitamins) besides carbohydrates, proteins, fats, minerals and water are also REQUIRED for health.
1907 “A Pure Food & Drug Act” went into affect signed by President Roosevelt.
A Message to the World: Dr. Wiley, the father of the Pure Food Act was to serve only one master-the public welfare and safeguard public health. Had Harvey Wiley been able to fulfill his life’s ambition, this is what he would have achieved:
“No food product of our country would have any trace of a synthetic chemical preservative; no soft drink any caffeine; no bleached flour would be manufactured. Our foods and drugs would be wholly without any form of misbranding or adulteration. The health of our people would be vastly improved and their life greatly extended. The manufacturers of our food supply, and especially the millers, would devote their energies to improving the public health and promoting happiness in every home by the production of whole ground, unbolted cereal flours and meals.”
1908 Gunther Enderlein, German Medical Doctor, was 36 at the time of Bechamp’s death. Enderlein continued and expanded on Bechamps work, and completed after 60 years of fine research the most advanced understandings of the microbial universe in relation to man, ever to have been compiled and understood. He developed the Darkfield Microscope usage for studying live blood specimens. He founded the Sanum Company in Germany which still today produces the world famous Sanum remedies.
1912 March 15, 1912, Dr. Wiley announced his resignation because there was a nullification of the provision that the Bureau of Chemistry was empowered to examine all suspicious foods and refer all cases of misbranding and adulteration to the courts. He lost all his power to regulate food and all his life’s efforts were derailed. Our national health has suffered tremendously and this was one of the saddest times in modern health history.
Crimes Against the Pure Food Law Of 1906

THE HISTORY OF A CRIME AGAINST THE FOOD LAW
THE AMAZING STORY OF THE NATIONAL
FOOD AND DRUGS LAW INTENDED TO
PROTECT THE HEALTH OF THE PEOPLE
PERVERTED TO PROTECT ADULTERATION
OF FOODS AND DRUGS
” The final step to complete the restoration of the law is the repeal of the provision in the appropriation bill abolishing the Bureau of Chemistry and the restoration of the execution of the law to the revivified Bureau.
This is the only amende honorable that could possibly be made for the destruction of the Bureau of Chemistry and the transfer of its authority by an item engrafted ,on an appropriation bill. It may be that the present arrangement is much better than that enacted by Congress. It would be entirely proper, therefore, after this restoration is made, to introduce a new bill into the Congress of the United States, providing for the destruction of the Bureau of Chemistry and the transfer of its authority to the present unit in the Secretary’s office.
No attack has been made upon the provisions of the law. They remain exactly as Congress enacted them. It is, therefore, the duty of the present administrative unit to urge the abolition of all these illegal restrictions on their authority and to proceed with all vigor to the execution of the provisions of the law as they were enacted on June 30, 1906.”

1940 About the beginning of World War II, enrichment of refined, devitalized flour became compulsory. The enrichment, so called, was with synthetic fractions of pseudo-vitamins. The practice continues to the day.

Founding of Baker Creek Rare Seeds
Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds
Jere Gettle always had a passion for growing things, and at age 3 he planted his first garden. Ever since that day, he wanted to be involved in the seed industry. So at the age of 17, he printed the first small Baker Creek Heirloom Seed catalog in 1998. The company has grown to offer 1300 varieties of vegetables, flowers and herbs—the largest selection of heirloom varieties in the U.S.A.
Baker Creek carries one of the largest selections of seeds from the 19th century, including many Asian and European varieties. The company has become a tool to promote and preserve our agricultural and culinary heritage. Our company and seeds have been featured in The New York Times, The Associated Press, Oprah Magazine, Martha Stewart, and many others. Gardeners can request a free 196-page color catalog that now mails to 310,000 gardeners nationally.
Baker Creek started hosting festivals in 2000 as an idea to bring gardeners, homesteaders and natural food enthusiasts together to exchange thoughts, seeds, listen to speakers and enjoy vendors, old-time music and much more. These festivals gave birth to the idea for our pioneer village, Bakersville. Other projects include our trial gardens, seed collecting expeditions, our popular online forums at idigmygarden.com and educational produce exhibits.
The Voice of George Washington Carver Speaks
This is a Favorite Quote for the 2012 Season from George Washington Carver. I found this quote in the books of Edmond Bordeaux Szekely, who I see an the foremost Essene Renaissance Prophet of the 20th Century. “Essene” means many things, including, Expectant of the return to wholeness. It means, holding to the Essential. It means each of us being an Organic Uprising, Standing Up for Nature’s Original Technology.

What Leslie Says
What a 16 year old at Hami said:
VOICES FROM THE PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE ARE SPEAKING NOW. ALL THESE VOICES LEAD TO ONE CONCLUSION, “GROW A HEALTHIER PIZZA!”
“If commercial interests–once again– have convinced Congress–to do business as usual–and that profits are more important than our children having improved lunches in schools, if Congress has now said that a few tablespoons of tomato sauce define Pizza as a Vegetable, then we, as Conscious Consumers will Grow a Healthier Pizza through the action of the ’7.5 Million + 2 Petition.’ To top off this pizza, we want to know the quality of our Ingredients. If pizza is made from cans and containers that have ingredients that are made wtth GMOs–Genetically Modified Organisms–We have a ‘Right To Know,’ and say “Label GMO’s!” just like people in near 50 other nations. Together now, the people of California–with support from people of other states and nations signing as well–will build the Greatest Grass Roots Movement in California History. We are ‘Sacred Seeds’ It is time now to ‘Win Back Our Sacred Seeds.’ ” –Leslie Goldman, Your Enchanted Gardener, Plant Your Dream Blog
“It will be a long time before Congress will successfully grapple with the facts…”Food Reform is Needed! —Alfred W. McCann,”The Science of Eating” and “Starving America” (1918,1919)
“The work must be done in the schools.Our American children must be taught the meaning of depraved foods, that they must learn how foods are processed, bleached, colored, sifted, bolted, denatured, degerminated, demineralized, chemically treated and refined; that they must be taught the relationship of foodless food to sickness and death; that they must be taught the relationship of natural food to health and life.”- Food Reform is Needed! –Alfred W. McCann, “Starving America.”(1918)
