Nestle Poland Spring uses tap water, lawsuit declares

Ever wonder if that bottled mineral water you just spent several dollars on is really mineral water? According to a bombshell new lawsuit filed this week, at least in the case of one company it isn't.
A group of bottled water drinkers has brought a class action lawsuit against Nestle, the company which owns Poland Spring, alleging that the Maine business has long deceived consumers by mislabeling common groundwater. The lawsuit was filed on Tuesday in a Connecticut federal court and accuses Nestle Waters North America Inc. of a “colossal fraud perpetrated against American consumers the Bangor Daily News reports.

The plaintiffs claim that falsely labeling its "groundwater" product as pure spring water allowed Nestle to sell Poland Spring water at a premium; as a result the consumers who brought the legal action are seeking at least $5 million in monetary damages for a national class and several state subclasses. They requested a jury trial. The civil suit was brought by 11 people from the Northeast who collectively spent thousands of dollars on Poland Spring brand water in recent years. It seeks millions of dollars in damages for a nationwide class and hinges on whether the sources of Poland Spring water meet the Food and Drug Administration’s definition of a spring.

The 325-page lawsuit, which was filed by lawyers from four firms, claims that none of the company’s Maine water sources meets the federal definition for spring water and that the company has “politically compromised” state regulators. Rather than spring water, Nestle Waters is actually purifying and bottling groundwater, some of which comes from sites near waste and garbage dumps, the suit claims. The legal challenge comes as Nestle is looking to expand its operations in Maine.
For instance, the suit claims that the company’s wells in Poland, Maine, have never been scientifically proven to be connected to a spring and draw in surface water, which cannot legally be called spring water. It further alleges that the company has put water from some of these wells through a purification process that disqualifies it as spring water under federal regulations.

The suit makes similar claims about Poland Spring water sources in Hollis, Fryeburg, Denmark, Dallas Plantation, Pierce Pond Township and Kingfield.
Poland Spring has gotten away with this deception for years, the suit claims, by co-opting state regulators and interweaving its interests with those of state government. Since 1998 the company has generated millions of dollars for Maine through licensing agreements, and since 2003 it has had an executive on the governor-appointed body that oversees the state drinking-water regulation enforcement agency, the suit states.
The court complaint further says that the Maine Drinking Water Program scientist who approved many of the company’s spring water permits spent a decade working with this executive at a private engineering firm and that the agency failed to get independent proof of the springs’ existence.
In response to the lawsuit, a Nestle Waters spokesperson said that its water meets all relevant federal and state regulations on the classification and collection of spring water and that the suit is “an obvious attempt to manipulate the legal system for personal gain.”

“The claims made in the lawsuit are without merit. Poland Spring is 100 [percent] spring water.”
This is not the first time that Nestle Waters has faced such allegations. In 2003, it settled a class action lawsuit alleging that Poland Spring water doesn’t come from a spring. In that case, the company did not admit the allegation but agreed to pay about $10 million in discounts to consumers and charity contributions. In other words, pulling a page from Wall Street, it neither admitted, nor denied guilt.

Ideal Weight For Americans Used To Be Much Thinner Than It Is Now

Courtesy of tteclod (who justifiably labels this “the shiv of truth”), the 1959 Met Life “desirable weight” tables for American men and women.

If you’re a dedicated weightlifter with serious muscle, these sorts of tables won’t apply to you. You’d be better off measuring body fat % directly.
These ideal weight MetLife tables from 1959 are funny in a “oh my god what have we lost gained?!?” way, when one ponders that the average weight of an average height American White woman in 2002 was 162 pounds (sadly, a weight which has gone higher since then).
Compare that weight to what was considered the ideal weight for an average height (5′ 3″), medium frame American woman in 1959:
110 – 122 pounds.
Like I’ve said, White beta males had it good before America began her transformation into a gynarchic festival of blubber, gogrrlism, and man-hate right around 1970.
The beta male of 1959 was banging, marrying, and cherishing women a full 46 pounds lighter on average than the women available to the beta male of 2002.
That’s the sensate difference between banging a UG4 and an HB8. In erection terms, it’s the difference between sporting a half-chub that goes soft in her after two pumps versus a granite steel-tipped hard-on that jabs her cervix and impregnates her with shitlord quadruplets. In love terms, it’s the difference between a garbage hour pickup and post-jizz ghost versus a three month courtship and a sappy poem written in calligraphy which you learned in a class you took specifically to impress her. In marital terms, it’s the difference between vidja gaming and porn versus signing the line that is dotted…with exuberant flourish.
And tradcons furrow their fiveheads in puzzlement trying to understand why American men have dropped out of the marriage market.
I’ll keep my reply to them brief.
IT’S THE ECONOMY OF FEMALE, STUPID. AND IT TOTALLY SUCKS, WHEN ONLY LESBIANS ARE GETTING HIRED AT LIVING WAGE JOBS ANYMORE.

Holistic doctor gunned down outside organic restaurant in Colorado as war on natural health continues



[6/13/17/ AMY GOODRICH]  The pharmaceutical world will do everything in its power to protect its cash cow. Anything that stands in its way will be eliminated. In just over one year, more than 60 holistic doctors and researchers have been found dead, most of them in suspicious circumstances.
Christopher Bayley King, 49, is the latest holistic doctor to be murdered in cold blood. He was eating at the Farm to Table Restaurant, Bramble & Hare, when he was approached by a man named Louis Joseph Sebastian, 32, and shot dead on Memorial Day, reported Your News Wire. Just before he got murdered, Dr. King was arguing with his killer. Then they went outside and Dr. King got shot.
According to the police, more shots were fired when they went back into the restaurant. Though the investigators have not said what the killer’s motive was, it is more than obvious in which direction we should look.

Christopher Bayley King of San Marcos, California, was a well-respected physician and researcher who focused on the connection between diet and disease. He is the founder of the Dr. King’s Clinic in California and worked at SlimGenics. According to posts on his Facebook and LinkedIn pages, Dr. King had previously traveled to New Zealand to work with Maori tribes and planned on returning in June to continue his work with them.

After the horrific event, Dr. King was rushed to Boulder Community Health’s Foothills Hospital. Unfortunately, help came too late and he died from his injuries, the Daily Camerareported. Louis Joseph Sebastian is currently being held at the Boulder County Jail without bond. At present, it is not known if the men knew each other or what their relationship was, if any. In a hearing set for August 7, 2017, a judge will decide whether there is enough evidence to continue to hold him without bond.

Self-defense or premeditated murder?

According to a quote published in a New Zealand newspaper, both men were invited to a party by different guests. However, Leah Akin said she accidentally invited King, thinking she was inviting a friend with the same name. Nonetheless, he was a welcomed guest since they had previously “hooked up,” the woman explained.
Even though the 32-year-old made him uncomfortable, Gary Reeves was the one to invite Sebastian to the venue. According to Gary, Sebastian often talked about “interactions with the mob.” While flirting with one of the guests, Sebastian said he believed men “needed to be macho and aggressive to win over the attention and affection of women.”
Around midnight, guests started to head downtown for food and drinks. At Bramble & Hare, King and Sebastian got into an argument allegedly about politics, according to the official reports. When Sebastian suggested taking it outside, witnesses heard gunfire and King stumbled into the restaurant where he was shot in cold blood.
Before more damage could be done, a chef and former marine ran out of the kitchen and disarmed the shooter. According to the Boulder police, King was shot four times, in the ribs, chest, and shoulder. Though Sebastian later claimed self-defense, if he gets convinced of first-degree murder, he could face a life sentence or even the death penalty.
Dr. King has done so much for the world with his holistic research and writings and will be missed by family, friends, and those who have worked with him. Was this an unfortunate chain of events with a deadly consequence or did Sebastian plan the argument and murder ahead of time to shut up Dr. King?
If you have any information about this case or the connection between the two men, call the Boulder Police Department at 303-441-1974. Or if you wish to remain anonymous, you may contact the Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or you can submit tips through the Crime Stoppers website at CrimesHurt.com.

Court Documents Show how Monsanto Crushed Dissent with Thousands of Paid Trolls

Court Documents Show how Monsanto Crushed Dissent with Thousands of Paid Trolls
Monsanto was once blamed for having an entire department within its St. Louis headquarters for dishing out disinfo and trolling dissenters, but now there is a paper trail proving they’ve been messing with your heads.

Pre-trials for over 50 lawsuits in the US District Court in San Francisco have unearthed Monsanto’s dirty little secret – aside from the Plaintiffs’ claim that the herbicide Round Up caused their non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

It seems Monsanto has been hiring, through third parties, thousands of Internet trolls to counter negative comments about their products and business practices, and to promote their company with pseudo-scientific reports downplaying the proved risks of glyphosate, as well as the “inert” ingredients in their best-selling pesticides. Just like the DNC and Hillary did and does, to offset their illegal crimes against the people and serial killings. Seth Rich, for example, and hundreds of others.

If you’re a savvy reader, you can see evidence of a pointed disinformation campaign. There are even trolls and shills that dismiss the “Monsanto Shill Syndrome.” These people say hateful things about the Food Babe, Moms Against Monsanto, GMO-whistleblowers, organic farmers, et al.
I can attest from my own experience writing about Monsanto’s actions for over six years now that I have had trolls follow me from one site to another to try to discredit me personally or make light of almost any argument I put forth concerning GMOs or glyphosate. However, after half the world has banned these reprehensible “crops”, are we surprised at all about Monsanto’s equally contemptible tactics?

Here’s one of my favorites to give you an example of Monsanto’s modus operandi. A commenter named ‘GMO Roberts’ once wrote:
“Poor Chrissy sure is jealous of Monsanto. It is a shame that she can’t accept the fact that farmers want gmos.”
This was one of the nice comments. Mostly, cunts like this are vicious in the extreme.

While its possible this wasn’t a hired troll, GMO Roberts (and others with similar names) commented on every single article I wrote for more than three years. That’s some serious time spent arguing for GMOs and Monsanto.

I wouldn’t be surprised if ‘GMO Roberts’ and his buddies end up being exposed in the papers that are being gathered at the website of the food-safety whistleblower, US Right to Know. 

The plaintiffs in California have alleged that Monsanto targeted all online materials and even social media comments that indicate potential dangers of its products, per one document released late in April. The document details the accusations further,
“Monsanto even started the aptly-named ‘Let Nothing Go’ program to leave nothing, not even Facebook comments, unanswered; through a series of third parties, it employs individuals who appear to have no connection to the industry, who in turn post positive comments on news articles and Facebook posts, defending Monsanto, its chemicals, and GMOs.”
Then there’s the additional claim that Monsanto has been filling the coffers of think tanks and fake science organizations, Universities, etc. to promote their wares. You may have seen places like the ‘Genetic Literacy Project’ and the ‘American Council on Science and Health”– “organizations intended to shame scientists and highlight information helpful to Monsanto and other chemical producers,” according to the plaintiffs.

There’s proof to boot. There are batches of emails, some written by Monsanto executives, inducing “independent scientists” to ghost write pseudo-scientific articles supporting glyphosate, Round Up, and GMOs.

It isn’t as if this is really news to any of us, but it is darned satisfying to see that the truth always comes out. This time a California court might be holding Monsanto to the fire not only for causing wide spread cancer, but proving that they used Orwellian mind control tactics to sway the public’s acceptance of their own poisoning.
