Award-winning investigative journalist and former TV anchorwoman Sharyl Attkisson speaks out on “Untouchable Subjects: Separating Rumor from Fact on COVID-19’s Origins.”
Attkisson examines the growing body of scientific, forensic, and circumstantial evidence on the origins and cover-up of COVID-19. In an explosive but carefully-documented expose, Attkisson reveals how:
•Numerous scientific insiders are signing onto the “lab origin” theory for Covid-19 and a link to controversial research funded by U.S. tax dollars.
•High profile health figures who have worked to “debunk” lab origin questions are linked to funding and vaccine research partnerships with China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV).
•The U.S.-Chinese research involved genetically engineering bat coronavirus to make it infect human airway cells in mice, in order to invent vaccines and other therapeutics.
•U.S. taxpayer money supported the controversial vaccine research with Chinese scientists through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
•Some support came from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), led by Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Mark Bittman’s new book, Animal, Vegetable, Junk, sheds light on why so many Americans, including young people, are falling victim to chronic diseases such as obesity, heart disease, and cancer.
In relation to COVID-19, it is the increasingly routine consumption of junk food—highly-processed, filled with bad fats, sugar-laden, and laced with synthetic ingredients—that make so many of the elderly and those in poor health vulnerable to a viral trigger such as COVID-19 that magnifies and exacerbates underlying diet-related chronic diseases or co-morbidities.
As Bittman explains:
“One of the most damning statistics is that close to 50% of the food that’s available is in the form of ultra-processed food. So ultra-processed food is what I call junk food… And it means food that contains non-food ingredients; food that your grandmother, great grandmother, maybe at this point wouldn’t have recognized as food. Food that you can’t cook yourself. Food that you don’t find in your own kitchen in the normal course of cooking and eating. A food that didn’t exist before the 20th century. It’s important to recognize that because ultra-processed food is cheap and it’s fast and it’s widely available; people without time and without money, are more likely to buy that kind of food. But everybody eats junk food. And it also poisons the environment for everybody.”

In this interview by Alexis Baden-Mayer with OCA Director Ronnie Cummins, co-author with Dr. Joseph Mercola of the new book The Truth About COVID-19, Ronnie talks about the Wuhan, China lab-engineered origins of COVID-19 and the Chinese/U.S. cover-up of this (hopefully) accidental but predictable disaster.
Alexis and Ronnie discuss the reckless Chinese/U.S. “gain-of-function” experiments that weaponized the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the little-known history of the US-led chemical and biological arms race since the Second World War, and the absolute necessity to ban “gain-of-function” and bioweapons experiments across the globe.
Ronnie also examines the ruthless manipulation of the pandemic by Big Pharma, Big Media, Big Business, the military-industrial complex, and indentured politicians, and the so-called Great Reset, who have used fraudulent science, fear-mongering, Emergency Decrees, and lockdowns to consolidate their power and wealth in a manner that can only be described as dictatorial.

There’s a reason you should boycott Big Meat and all non-organic, non-grass-fed or factory-farmed foods. As Civil Eats tells us:
“The danger is obvious: If antibiotic-resistant bacteria infect humans more often, once-minor health issues could become life-threatening. The World Health Organization (WHO) identifies antibiotic resistance as “one of the biggest threats to global health” today, and a 2019 Centers for Disease Control (CDC) report found antibiotic-resistant bacteria cause 2.8 million infections and 35,000 deaths annually in the U.S. The CDC’s numbers did show an 18 percent decrease in deaths over the six years since its initial 2013 report, as a result of actions that have been taken to curb overuse in both healthcare and agriculture. But other estimates of deaths attributable to antibiotic-resistant bacteria are much higher.”

In his move to ban Monsanto/Bayer’s glyphosate, "Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador quietly rocked the agribusiness world with his New Year's Eve decree," Timothy A. Wise of the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP) noted earlier this year. "His administration sent an even stronger aftershock two weeks later, clarifying that the government would also phase out GM corn imports in three years and the ban would include not just corn for human consumption but yellow corn destined primarily for livestock."
Since then, U.S. corporate agribusiness and proponents of so-called Free Trade have been lobbying the Biden administration to lean on Mexican President López Obrador to backtrack on his popular decision to kick GMOs and the toxic chemicals that go along with them out of Mexico.
OCA’s Mexico sister organization, Via Organica, has worked hard for over a decade, along with its 300 other partner organizations in the coalition Sin Maiz, No Hay Pais (“Without Corn there is no country”) to ban GMOs and glyphosate south of the border.
"Mexico imports about 30% of its corn each year, overwhelmingly from the United States," Wise added. "Almost all of that is yellow corn for animal feed and industrial uses. López Obrador's commitment to reducing and, by 2024, eliminating such imports reflects his administration's plan to ramp up Mexican production as part of the campaign to increase self-sufficiency in corn and other key food crops."

Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin broke some important news during his appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience on April 27.
Jack Crowe writes in the National Review:
“After laying out the circumstantial evidence that COVID originated in the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), Rogin explained why Dr. Anthony Fauci, like many in the world of virology research, has a vested professional interest in downplaying the likelihood that so-called gain-of-function research — of the kind performed at the Wuhan lab — not only failed to prevent the ongoing global pandemic but actually may have played a hand in unleashing it… So, Anthony Fauci, the hero of the pandemic, is the most important person in the world of gain-of-function research there is . . . Basically, he is the one disbursing all the grants for this, he is the one who pushed to turn it back on after Obama turned it off, that’s another crazy story, he turned it back on without really consulting the White House.”

And we need your financial support as well, more than ever.
Much of OCA’s work is focused on educating consumers and engaging them in the battle to boycott Big Meat, GMOs, and junk foods and help regenerate our food, farming, and land-use practices. But of course this ongoing campaign for organic and regenerative foods is also a battle to protect our health.
Never has that mission been more urgent than now. COVID-19 has taught us how valuable a healthy immune system is—and how a polluted environment and a highly processed, pesticide-contaminated industrial diet compromises our health and leaves us vulnerable to chronic disease.
Our job would be easier if we could focus exclusively on food and agriculture. But unfortunately, the corporations that benefit from corrupting the food system, polluting our waterways and degrading our soil, also corrupt our political system.
As long as food and agriculture policy is written by Big Food and Big Ag, our food, our environment—and our health—will suffer. As long as gene engineers, bioweapons scientists, unelected medical czars, Silicon Valley billionaires, and Big Pharma bureaucrats feel free to lie and terrify the public into submission, participatory democracy faces a mortal threat.
Please help us keep the battle going.

Amazon ranked Ronnie Cummins’s new book, The Truth About COVID-19, co-authored with Dr. Mercola, with a powerful Foreword by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., as the eighth top-selling book in the nation as of April 29.
The Truth About COVID-19 lays out the evidence that SARS-CoV-2 was a lab release, developed jointly by US and Chinese scientists, funded in part by Anthony Fauci’s NIH.
A short time before the actual outbreak, COVID was eerily and suspiciously predicted and war-gamed by Bill Gates, the WHO, World Economic Forum, the CIA, and strategic members of the corporate elite in a conference in New York in October 2019 called Event 201. Event 201 laid out how censorship, lockdowns, and unprecedented restrictions on dissent and personal freedoms would be necessary to deal with the anticipated mass panic and potential civil unrest from a forthcoming pandemic.
Since then, these same globalists have orchestrated the lockdowns, Emergency Decrees, rushed to market vaccines, and Vaccine Passports that have turned the world upside down.

Hudson Carbon, a close ally of OCA and Regeneration International, recently sent a letter to President Biden asking him to refrain from paying out bogus “carbon credits” to conventional (chemical-intensive, energy-intensive, GMO) farms for minimal changes in production practices that don’t really sequester carbon or improve the environment.
As Matthew Sheffer, Managing Director of Hudson Carbon states:
“A national carbon farming program at the USDA level would be a tremendous leap forward with regards to incentivizing agricultural practices that can help mitigate climate change. However, the current primary focus on no-till and cover cropping is narrow in scope. While cover cropping is an extremely important and impactful agricultural practice, it is merely a part of a larger system needed to regenerate healthy soils on a nationwide basis.
Designing a Whole-System, Outcome-Based Approach
Rather than focus on single farming practice benefits, designing a whole-system approach will create synergy between practices and enterprises, and bring about significant soil carbon sequestration, GHG emissions reductions, and other ecological co-benefits. Fortunately, there are myriad other management interventions that the USDA can fold into their strategy to ensure that the agriculture sector maximizes its full potential in the fight against climate change.
In order for the Biden Administration to ensure that money spent on climate-related USDA incentive programs is supporting real net impact, these programs must be spurred by practice-based incentives that are holistic in scope and supported by comprehensive outcomes-based assessments.”
