McDonald’s Website Instructs Employees Not To Eat Burgers And Fries

Corporate criminals poisoning Americans reject own garbage "food" for employees

One of the favorite stories of American business is that of Henry Ford, who, according to legend, paid his unskilled workers about twice the going rate so that they would have enough money to purchase one of the Model-T cars they proudly made. In a strange reversal of that ethic, McDonald's has begun to instruct its own employees to avoid the products they make: burgers and fries. Offering advice from McResource Line, its employee website, the fast food giant suggests employees choose healthier options, such as a salad and sandwich, when selecting a meal from a fast-food menu. 
 
 
Noting that many chain restaurants are now preparing foods using other types of fat, rather than trans fats, the company’s website states that it is still difficult to eat a healthy diet when you eat at fast food restaurants too often. “Many foods are cooked with a lot of fat, even if they are not trans fats. Many fast-food restaurants do not offer any lower-fat foods. Large portions also make it easy to overeat. And most fast food restaurants do not offer many fresh fruits and vegetables.”

 
In addition, the website graphically offers an example of an “unhealthy choice” versus a “healthier choice” with alternate photos of a large soda, double cheeseburger, and fries as compared to a salad, water, and a sandwich.
 

The caption reads: “Although not impossible, it is more of a challenge to eat healthy when going to a fast food place. ... Limit the extras such as cheese, bacon, and mayonnaise.”

On another website page, the company risks even more when it directly references the incompatability of its own food and health: 
 
 
“In general, people with high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease must be very careful about choosing fast food because of its high fat, salt, and sugar levels.”

The Golden Arches defended itself to CNBC. "Portions of this website continue to be taken entirely out of context," a McDonald's statement issued to CNBC noted. "This website provides useful information from respected third-parties about many topics, among them health and wellness. It also includes information from experts about healthy eating and making balanced choices. McDonald's agrees with this advice."

Fukushima : Wave of Radiation Will Be Ten Times Bigger Than All Of The Radiation From Nuclear Tests Combined

Putting Fukushima In Perspective

There was no background radioactive cesium before above-ground nuclear testing and nuclear accidents started. 
 
 
Wikipedia provides some details on the distribution of cesium-137 due to human activities:

Small amounts of caesium-134 and caesium-137 were released into the environment during nearly all nuclear weapon tests and some nuclear accidents, most notably the Chernobyl disaster.

 
 
Caesium-137 is unique in that it is totally anthropogenic. Unlike most other radioisotopes, caesium-137 is not produced from its non-radioactive isotope, but from uranium. It did not occur in nature before nuclear weapons testing began. By observing the characteristic gamma rays emitted by this isotope, it is possible to determine whether the contents of a given sealed container were made before or after the advent of atomic bomb explosions. This procedure has been used by researchers to check the authenticity of certain rare wines, most notably the purported “Jefferson bottles”.

As the EPA notes:

Cesium-133 is the only naturally occurring isotope and is non-radioactive; all other isotopes, including cesium-137, are produced by human activity. 
 
 
What people call “background” radiation is really the amount of radiation deposited into the environment within the last 100 years from nuclear tests and nuclear accidents (and naturally-occurring substances, such as radon).

2,053 nuclear tests occurred between 1945 and 1998.

Above-ground nuclear tests – which caused numerous cancers to the “downwinders” – were covered up by the American, French and other governments for decades. See this, this, this, this, this and this.

 
But the amount of radiation pumped out by Fukushima dwarfs the amount released by the nuclear tests. 
 
 
As nuclear engineer and former nuclear executive Arnie Gundersen notes, the wave of radioactive cesium from Fukushima which is going to hit the West Coast of North America will be 10 times greater than from the nuclear tests (starting at 55:00).

This graphic from Woods Hole in Massachusetts – one of the world’s top ocean science institutions – shows how much more cesium was dumped into the sea off Japan from Fukushima as compared to nuclear testing and Chernobyl, and Fukushima radiation has arrived on the West Coast years earlier than predicted.

 
The Canadian government has confirmed in October that Fukushima radiation will exceed “levels higher than maximum fallout” from the nuclear tests. 
 
 
The party line from the Japanese, Canadian and American governments are that these are safe levels of radiation. Given that those countries have tried to ban investigative journalism and have tried to cover up the scope of the Fukushima disaster, people may want to investigate for ourselves.

For example, Gundersen notes that the U.S. government flew helicopters with special radiation testing equipment 90 days after the Fukushima meltdown happened. The government said it was just doing a routine “background radiation” check, but that it was really measuring the amount of “hot particles” in the Seattle area (starting at 27:00). Hot particles are inhaled and become very dangerous “internal emitters”. The government then covered up the results on the basis of “national security”. 
 
 
As the Washington Department of Health noted at the time:

A helicopter flying over some urban areas of King and Pierce counties will gather radiological readings July 11-28, 2011. [Seattle is in King County.] The U.S. Department of Energy’s Remote Sensing Laboratory Aerial Measurement System will collect baseline levels of radioactive materials.

 
Some of the data may be withheld for national security purposes. 
 
 
Similarly, the Department of Homeland Security and National Nuclear Security Administration sent low-flying helicopters over the San Francisco Bay Area in 2012 to test for radiation. But they have not released the results.

Indeed, residents of Seattle breathed in 5 hot particles each day in April of 2011 … a full 50% of what Tokyo residents were breathing at the time:

 
 
After all, the reactors at Fukushima literally exploded … and ejected cladding from the reactors and fuel particles. And see this.

Gundersen says that geiger counters don’t measure hot particles. Unless the government or nuclear scientists measure and share their data, we are in the dark as to what’s really going on.

Fukushima Reports : “You can Expect An Enormous Amount Of Cancers” Around Pacific

“We’re all at risk, this radiated water is going to hit right here” in U.S. — "We’re at top of food chain, so we get highest radiation dose — 35+ people now suffering cancer after U.S. rescue mission off Fukushima"

ENERGY NEWS

New York Post, Dec. 22, 2013: 
 
[T]hree years after their deployment on a humanitarian mission to Japan’s ravaged coast [scores of] crew members on the [USS Ronald Reagan] aircraft carrier and a half-dozen other support ships are battling cancers, thyroid disease, uterine bleeding and other ailments. [...] The fallout of those four days spent off the Fukushima coast has been tragic to many of the 5,000 sailors who were there. [...] At least 70 have been stricken with some form of radiation sickness, and of those, “at least half . . . are suffering from some form of cancer,” their lawyer, Paul Garner, told The Post Saturday. “We’re seeing leukemia, testicular cancer and unremitting gynecological bleeding requiring transfusions and other intervention,” said Garner [...] “Then you have thyroid polyps, other thyroid diseases” [...] 
 
 
Interview with Charles Bonner, one of the attorneys representing 3/11 first responders, EON, published Dec. 20, 2013 (at 16:00 in): We also want to bring awareness […] to the 70,000 first responders — who went to Japan to help in this rescue mission — that they’re all at risk, in fact we’re all at risk. 
 
 
This radiated water* is going to hit right here in San Diego, and the Pacific Ocean [coast of U.S. and Canada] in 2015**.
 
* Forecast model shown in video simulates the transport of tsunami debris — not radioactive contamination.
 
** Recent reports from gov’t scientists reveal the Fukushima ocean plume hit West Coast months ago.

Interview with nuclear expert Arnie Gundersen of Fairewinds, KBOO, Nov. 2013 (at 53:00 in): “Billions of people rely on [the Pacific Ocean] for fishing, and for drinking, and for recreation and stuff like that. So that we’ve contaminated a body of water with, what scientists in the nuclear iunduryu would say, is too low to worry about — but when you take a source that’s dilute, and you multiply it by the billions of people that in fact use that source, you can expect an enormous amount of cancers as a result.”

Interview with radioactive waste watchdog Kevin Kamps of Beyond Nuclear, Truthout, Dec. 19, 2013: The National Academy of Sciences in the United States has affirmed for decades that any exposure to radioactivity, no matter how low the dose, carries a health risk for cancer. […] Another dynamic of great concern […] is the attitude of the nuclear establishment that the Pacific Ocean will dilute radioactivity […] “We are at the top of the food chain, so we’re going to get the most concentrated dose from seafood” [...]

UN To Send More Peacekeepers To South Sudan

UN paves the way for U.S., oil company colonization of South Sudan

PRESS TV
12/23/2013

The United Nations is planning to dispatch more peacekeepers to embattled towns in South Sudan and evacuate “non-critical” staff as fighting continues across the violence-hit country. 
 
 
"Ret me be comprretry creer.... preeze!"
The UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) said in a Sunday statement that it would “reinforce its military presence in Bor and Pariang to continue fulfilling its mandate to help protect South Sudanese civilians.”

The UN added that it had started evacuating “non-critical” staff from South Sudan’s capital, Juba, where around 20,000 civilians have taken refuge at UN bases.

 
 
 
 
“We are not abandoning South Sudan,” said the UN Special Representative for South Sudan, Hilde Johnson, adding, “To anyone who wants to threaten us, attack us or put obstacles in our way, our message remains loud and clear: we will not be intimidated.”

Fighting has plagued South Sudan for a week, after South Sudanese President Salva Kiir accused his former deputy Riek Machar of attempting to carry out a coup, an accusation that Machar has denied.

The fighting between troops loyal to the South Sudanese president, who is from the Dinka ethnic group, and opposition leader Riek Machar, a Nuer, erupted around Juba on December 15. 
 
 
Forces loyal to Machar are presently in control of Bor, the capital of Jonglei state that is situated about 200 kilometers (125 miles) north of Juba, while South Sudan's army spokesman said government troops were advancing to recapture the town.

Pariang is located in South Sudan’s Unity state that is the country's key oil-producing area. Juba has acknowledged that Pariang is currently held by the rebels.

 
 
 
The skirmishes in South Sudan have killed hundreds and sent tens of thousands of people escaping for protection in UN bases or to safer parts of the country.

Meanwhile, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has expressed concern about reports of violence against civilians in South Sudan. 
 
 
“We are extremely concerned about reports of both targeted killings of civilians and ill-treatment,” said Melker Mabeck, head of the ICRC's delegation in Juba.

Earlier on Sunday, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon demanded an end to violence against civilians in the African country, stressing the need for dialogue in order to bring about peace and stability in the region.

 
South Sudan gained independence in July 2011 after its people overwhelmingly voted in a referendum for a split from Sudan.
