Jamie Oliver is a well known English chef and media personality who is known for his TV cookery shows and cookbooks along with his global campaign for better food education.
But now, Oliver the “healthy food advocate” has decided to team up with one of Monsanto’s biggest allies, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
The video shows Oliver pledging his support for what GMO pushing Gates has called “a better food system”, which is supposed to get rid of world hunger and global poverty..
AltHealthWorks Report: Bill Gates, the mega mogul and one of the world’s richest people, and his wife Melinda have contributed billions of dollars through their namesake Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to “fight poverty and disease” in Africa, and much of it has gone to “increasing agricultural productivity” on the continent, mostly through the introduction of genetically modified crops.
Protests against GMOs, which are linked to major health and environmental problems and oftentimes end up consolidating control of seeds and farming to massive corporations like Monsanto rather than farmers, have been fierce in Africa. But the Gates Foundation continues to tout them.
Meanwhile in the United States, Oliver has carved out a reputation for being a champion of the clean and healthy food movement, through his popular show ‘Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution’ on ABC and others.
His focus on locally grown fresh produce runs completely opposite to Gates’ vision of a corporatized, genetically engineered and artificial food supply consolidated in the hands of multi-nationals like Monsanto.
