Kevin Gianni is a health author, activist and blogger. He started seriously researching personal and preventative natural health therapies in 2002 when he was struck with the reality that cancer ran deep in his family and if he didn’t change the way he was living — he might go down that same path. Since then, he’s written and edited 6 books on the subject of natural health, diet and fitness. During this time, he’s constantly been humbled by what experts claim they know and what actually is true. This has led him to experiment with many diets and protocols — including vegan, raw food, fasting, medical treatments and more — to find out what is myth and what really works in the real world.

Kevin has also traveled around the world searching for the best protocols, foods, medicines and clinics around and bringing them to the readers of his blog RenegadeHealth.com — which is one of the most widely read natural health blogs in the world with hundreds of thousands of visitors a month from over 150 countries around the world.

    I don’t know what should or shouldn’t happen, but what I’d love to see is for companies to put videos of their process on their website so the consumer can decide for themselves what to purchase.

    Obviously this would never be mandated by the govt, and we know from several documentaries that the factory farms will do everything in their power to avoid having video taken at all costs, which should speak for itself in many ways.

    However, it shouldn’t be that hard for the companies that are doing it right to have a video for each product showing where it comes from and how it gets from them to the consumer. I mean you post a video every day of the week and you travel around in an RV!

    If more companies took this initiative we wouldn’t have to rely on govt. regulations to put labels on food. As we know the labels are shady anyways and often mean very little, sometimes nothing, so what is the point?

    Obviously, the video thing is for store bought products. In an ideal world I’d be getting all my food straight from the source,and wouldn’t need a video. If a company refuses to put out a video I can only assume they are up to no good 😉

    My inspiration for this idea came from this David Wolfe videohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9VlE_hvP7YE

    I know the controversy around cacao and I’m not trying to stir anything up. I’m just pointing out that I appreciate the fact that they were willing to post a video showing the entire process of how the products are brought to us! This video is probably very different than how a snickers bar is made!

    Eating ‘conventional’ kills you. 🙁

    Eating ‘conventional’ causes fatal cancer. 🙁

    Get help to stop eating ‘conventional’: consult your doctor or naturopath. 🙁

    Love yourself, eat organic. 🙂

  3. Great Interview Kevin and Jeffrey. Many Thanks! This is very disturbing and concerns me deeply. The technology being used, approved and experimented with is astounding! This sort of thing ought to be outlawed! We need to dethrone whoever is charge of allowing these proceedures!!!
    To answer your question of the day being creative something that just came to mind is,
    “Warning Surgeon General has determined from scientific evidence that genetically modified food is known to alter the DNA in humans nad is as well tied to the cause innumerable diseases. Extreme caution should be exercised concerning the consumption of this food product.

  4. Lori says:

    By purchasing this product, the consumer waives [this company] from all responsibilities including but not limited obesity and it’s symptoms, cancer, anaphylaxis or death.

  5. Joel Brown says:

    This product is not found in Nature!

    This product contains chemicals known to …. (as on cigarettes)

    For novelty purposes only.

  6. db : ) says:

    Ok…You want CREATIVE labels:

    FRANKEN FOOD

    FREAKY FOOD

    THE GMO BITE

    OUR GMO IS FROM A HIGHER CALLING WHERE WE ANSWER ONLY TO OURSELVES AND OUR OWN REALITY!!! A PRODUCT OF LIBERALISM RATHER THAN CREATIONISM.

    THINK LESS FOOD FOR THAT GMO BODY

    GMO FOOD FROM THE GODS NOT OF GOD

    WASH YOUR BRAIN WITH THE GMO REALITY

    GMO DNA GMO DNA GMO DNA

    You wonder what we are going to do when they completely comnpromise our food, and make it illegal to grown our own? I think they should just put a lable on all packaged food that says “WARNING ….. EAT AT YOUR OWN RISK”. That’s what it is coming to!!

    EXCELLENT ,EXCELLENT ,EXCELLENT PROGRAM —KEVIN AND ANN MARIE–AND THANK YOU DR. JEFFRY SMITH ,May you continue your quest in this fight against GMO’s for the survival of man kind .YOUR WORK IS MOST HONORABLE. God destroyed the world with water and spared NOAH AND HIS FAMILY because the fallen angels or DEMONS known as ( NEPHILIM ) —married the daughters o men.–Across intermingling of DNA strands. An abomination in the sight of what God did not design for . As in the book of Genesis , God says birds ,animals, insects ,etc are to mate after it’s KIND. God destroyed the earth because of the wickedness and cross breeding of (demonic) alien/ humane cross species, PS.HollyWood has put out many such movies of this , I find interesting. please check out Google VIDEOS >>>>>> PHIL SCHNEIDER you will be shocked ,he is a man of honest and moral integrity .See also Google, Bill Cooper and Al Bielk, Bob Lazar .As for nutrition labels how about : APPROVED BY : NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM (new world order) in side a pyramid ,sticker like the kind on back your dollar bill. May be this would wake America up knowing that the USA does not act on it’s own but now takes it’s orders from the NEW WORLD ORDER ,who dictates to how things are or are not to be labeled,amongst other things.

  18. Kevin, thank you for this series with Jeffrey. Powerful stuff, man.

    Re: nutritional labels… I don’t really read nutritional labels because I’m finding that other people or other organizations don’t have the same set of parameters as I do. “Organic” and “natural” don’t mean the same thing across the board. I’ve found the best way to work around this problem is just to stop buying as many “foods” with nutritional labels as you can. If it’s got a label, don’t buy it. Buy instead from farmers you know. Keep it local. That way, you can talk directly to your food-growers about what they’re doing.

    Every little step counts.

    Take good care,

    Love the suggestions on #3. What about creating a website that tracks what Senators and Representatives have connections to Monsanto? Also, FDA employees and their connections to Monsanto and drug companies. There is a woman democratic representative whose husband works for Monsanto that introduced a bill calling for banning heritage seeds, home gardens, etc, last year or the year before. That information should be more accessible.

    This interview series is great. Thanks again.

  20. Ev says:

    Labels given above are great, I have one: Consuming this product may increase your chance of various forms of cancer, may inhibit your ability to think, absorb nutrients, procreate or otherwise live successfully into your golden years. Keep away from animals.

  21. John says:

    WARNING-GROSSLY MODIFIED ORGANISM DO NOT EAT.

  22. Luke says:

    Nice show Kevin, loving the interview!

    A couple of ideas my girlfriend and I came up with:

    1. They should show on the label random defects that may occur from eating GMOs, just like others have suggested with the cigarette packets.

    OR (my favourite one)

    2. They could go totally over the top cartoon style and show crazy mutations and possibly even have related quiz questions. This reminded me of the game Fallout 3 (not that I expect you to have played it :D).

    Here is where I got this idea from:

    http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Generalized_Occupational_Aptitude_Test

    “Question 7:

    Oh no! You’ve been exposed to radiation [GMO], and a mutated hand has grown out of your stomach! What’s the best course of treatment?

    1 A bullet to the brain.
    2 Large Doses of anti-mutagen agent.
    3 Pray, Maybe God will spare you in exchange for a life of pious devotion.
    4 Removal of the mutated tissue with a precision laser.
    [5 Eating more whole foods!]”

    Or something similar. Pretty extreme, but hey, these are the times we live in.

    WARNING…MADE BY CORRUPTED GOVT.

  24. Sara Novak says:

    This should all remind us that currently GMO foods are not labeled, so we cannot be educated consumers. This is an even more frightening issue, which has been hidden from us from the start. What Does the Frankenfish Scandal Tell Us About GMO Labeling?

    I too signed the petition. I hope a lot others signed.
