Three-part series with Dr. Shiv Chopra - Food safety vs goverment corruption

Dr. Shiv Chopra has been called Canada's most famous whistleblower. In his 35-year career as a government scientist at Health Canada he refused to put corporate interests ahead of public health and safety. He was continuously disciplined and eventually fired for his stance in upholding the Food and Drug Act, in defiance of his bosses and a corrupt government system.

The 5OCTrain interviewed Dr. Chopra in a three-part series on July 16, July 23, and July 30, 2009:

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

This is a remarkable series of interviews about food safety, the agri-food industry, swine and other flue scams, government corruption, the legal framework, and the insanity of the five chemical substance groups affecting food that are NOT regulated in Canada:
  • hormones
  • antibiotics
  • slaughter house wastes
  • genetically modified organisms
  • pesticides and herbicides
Get an inside view of just how bad it is; with government-lead civil servant bosses sucking up to corporate interests, putting ass-kissing careerism and profits ahead of professional ethics and public safety.

Find out how the superbugs came to be and how we could easily adopt sane agri-food practices... It's criminal.
