They keep telling us that Russia is the nation-state personification of evil, corruption, and human rights abuses, but yet I’m still finding it hard to grasp this supposed fact.
Then again, I suppose preventing citizens from turning into obese diabetes-ridden slobs is supposed to amount to Health Fascism.
President Vladimir Putin has signed a new law regulating production, storing and transportation of organic produce in Russia. The decree bans agrochemicals, pesticides, antibiotics growth stimulators and hormones.
The new law, previously approved by both chambers of the Russian Parliament, will enter force on January 1, 2020. The regulation introduces references to “organic produce,”“manufacturer of organic produce” and “organic agriculture,” as well as sets control over producing, storing, labeling, selling and transporting goods of the kind.
The legislation doesn’t cover such goods as perfumery, cosmetics, and medicines, forest plants seeds, hunting and fishing produce apart from aquaculture.
Similar regulations have been approved by more than 80 countries so far. The first attempts to adopt the measure in Russia were taken 15 years ago. The legislation may help Russia take 25 percent stake in the global organic produce market, said Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev earlier this year.
The measure, which also includes creating of a national register, will help to force dishonest players out of the market and will have a positive impact on the quality of organic products, according to State Duma speaker Vyacheslav Volodin.
Meanwhile in America, we have a food and nutrition situation that is inherently poisonous to the people – unless you own a small-plot farm or have the financial means to afford exorbitantly-priced organic fruits, vegetables, and meats, that is.
Being somewhat observant, I’ve watched this play itself out over the years – it actually pains me to watch White families (who obviously struggle from paycheck to paycheck) purchase edible filth like soda and sugary treats at a rate that essentially dooms the next generation to lives that will almost certainly be shorter and more miserable than they could otherwise be.
But yet we’re supposed to eat the lie that this country cares for its people – while we’re supposed to condemn nations like Russia that have actively taken measures against media degeneracy, homosexuality, and the sale of “food” that in the end is just as destructive as heroin, cocaine, or narcotic pills.
