(NaturalNews) I once thought Whole Foods was a great place to shop, and I used to look forward to finding a Whole Foods store in every city I visited. Now when I see "Whole Foods" I think to myself, "Poison Foods" and I have images of those cancer tumors in the rats just pop into my head. I will never shop at Whole Foods again unless and until this corporation honestly labels GMOs or stops selling them altogether.

Two days ago, a group calling itself "Organic Spies" released a shocking video exposing the "GMO lies" at Whole Foods. The retailer sells masses of Monsanto's genetically modified corn, it turns out, and its employees blatantly lie to customers while claiming Whole Foods sells no GMOs at all! YouTube is now playing along with this lie by censoring the "Organic Spies" video, which happened earlier today.

On YouTube, you can watch videos of people having their teeth knocked out, animals being brutally shot by hunters, and even sexually explicit "soft porn." But you absolutely cannot be allowed to watch a video exposing the truth that Whole Foods sells a massive amount of GMOs at its stores.

That video, featuring hidden camera footage from the "Organic Spies" investigative group, was recently pulled (censored) by YouTube, most likely after complaints from Whole Foods itself.

Any attempt to view the video now results in a message from YouTube: "This video has been removed because its content violated YouTube's Terms of Service."

In other words, it told the truth.

Here's the screen shot of the message YouTube now displays when you try to watch this video:



And here's a screen shot of YouTube's takedown notice given to the owner of the original video:



Whole Foods executives give money to Mitt Romney and other GMO supporters

Aaron Dykes at InfoWars.com published a hard-hitting investigative story about this yesterday afternoon. That story even revealed financial ties between Whole Foods executives and politicians who promote GMOs and who work to further the interests of Monsanto.

As Dykes reports, Whole Foods has officially responded to the Organic Spies video by admitting that YES, they do sell GMOs in their stores. Many of their employees, however, seem to be completely unaware of this. As Whole Foods states in their blog:

The YouTube video showing our store Team Members giving conflicting responses to a question about GMOs reminds us that while we try to keep all our 70,000 Team Members up-to-speed on the latest information, clearly we need to do more. Some products in our stores DO contain GMOs -- just like any other food store in the country, due to the pervasiveness of GMOs...

Whole Foods goes on to claim it supports Proposition 37, but it refuses to donate even a single dollar to support the measure! (www.CArighttoknow.org)

How to see the video that was censored by YouTube

We have uploaded this BANNED video to TV.NaturalNews.com, and you can now watch it by clicking here.

Given that YouTube doesn't want you to see this investigative journalism video, there's even more reason to spread the word about this and show others what the corporate status quo in America absolutely does not want you to see!

Here's the link to the video on TV.naturalnews.com

TV.NaturalNews.com, by the way, is the last refuge of free speech in natural health videos. Where YouTube censors videos that tell the truth, we welcome these videos and freely distribute them for everyone to see.

We own our own video network and run the servers ourselves. No one can force us to take them down, short of a court order. As we are defender of free speech, we actively work to protect the free speech rights of whistleblowers such as Organic Spies.

YouTube hides the truth about GMOs and censors whistleblowers

YouTube is, of course, widely engaged in censorship of the truth. My own "TSA Help Wanted" video was on track to be viewed by tens of millions of people before YouTube censored it by slapping an "age restricted" status on it, even though the video contained absolutely no images or language not allowed on television. Click here to watch the TSA video that YouTube censored.

In pulling the "Organic Spies" Whole Foods GMO video, YouTube is also now fully engaged in helping corporate entities like Whole Foods hide their GMOs from the public. As the video itself showed, Whole Foods sells masses of GMOs to its customers, and none of those GMO foods are labeled as containing GMO.

Whole Foods, in other words, is a huge financial supporter of Monsanto because it retails Monsanto-produced GM foods to tens of millions of customers each year. Whole Foods has so far refused to require GMO labeling of the products it sells, and yet Whole Foods employees flatly LIE about all this, ridiculously claiming that Whole Foods sells no GMO whatsoever. This is true across numerous Whole Foods employees, not just a few isolated cases.

That's what this video revealed. This is why the video was banned by YouTube. This is the truth that you're not supposed to know about Whole Foods -- a corporation that has betrayed the values of its own customers by secretly selling genetically modified corn... the very same strain of corn that French researchers fed to rats who developed massive cancer tumors and suffered alarming rates of premature death.

Think about it: What those French researchers fed to the rats, Whole Foods is selling to you!

If you shop at Whole Foods, YOU are the lab rat!

Whole Foods now has more in common with Monsanto than healthy food consumers

Whole Foods apparently wants you to keep blindly buying the products it carries, without you having any real knowledge about the GMO content of what it sells.

That's unethical. It's unacceptable. It's a betrayal of the very values of the holistic health community. And it's an indictment of the empty, soulless, deceptive mindset at the very top of Whole Foods, a corporation that quite literally sells products containing a deadly insecticide built right into the food itself. How is that "wholesome" food? How can Whole Foods even call itself "Whole" foods when some of the food it sells contains a deadly pesticide that kills living creatures?

That statement is a scientific fact, by the way. Whole Foods cannot deny this fact. They cannot face the truth and they cannot even face their own customers whom they may very well be poisoning each and every day by continuing to sell genetically modified corn that French researchers have now linked to horrifying cancer tumors in rats. In an age of evil corporations seeming to dominate everything -- medicine, weapons of war, criminal banking institutions and so on -- Whole Foods increasingly appears to be happily positioned in bed with the evil corporations rather than fighting against them. Whole Foods is playing the old "go along to get along" game at the corporate level, ridiculously hoping this GMO labeling issue will somehow go away if they just ignore it long enough.

Heck, I'm surprised Whole Foods hasn't given money to oppose Proposition 37! Just like Monsanto, Dow Chemical, Nestle, Bayer, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo and all the other usual suspects. The corporate behavior of Whole Foods almost parallels Monsanto at this point. Hence the name I suggested in my previous article: WholeSanto.

The bottom line? If you shop at Whole Foods, you may be unknowingly poisoning yourself with "natural" foods containing GM corn. As the truth about the dangers of GMOs continues to come out, Whole Foods is going to look increasingly irresponsible, unethical and even dangerous to its own customers.

Because if Whole Foods is going to sell you food containing insecticide, then why shop at Whole Foods at all? You can save a small fortune and get the exact same deadly insecticide by shopping at a conventional grocery store. If Whole Foods isn't going to differentiate itself by avoiding foods that may be toxic to its customers, then what's the point of shopping there at all?

Shame on Whole Foods for acting a whole lot like Monsanto

I repeat: SHAME on Whole Foods for its irresponsible behavior on the issue of GMOs. Its actions are wrong-headed, deceptive, and possibly even dangerous to the health of its customers.

Join me in boycotting Whole Foods over its hidden GMOs and its refusal to tell the truth about what it's really selling. We expect better from this company. We demand better, or we won't shop there at all.

Instead, buy from your local farmers' markets and food cooperatives. Grow as much of your own food as you can, using heirloom seeds.

And no matter where you shop, buy organic. Organic foods have virtually zero GMO content, so choosing organic is the best way to avoid genetically modified ingredients.

Our pledge against GMOs

Here's my pledge to you: In our store (www.ShopNaturalNews.com) we will never knowingly sell products made with genetically modified ingredients -- and we read labels and scrutinize our vendors. We absolutely refuse to carry GM products in our store, and we will NEVER offer a product made with GMOs that gets described as "natural."

That's a hoax. A marketing scam. Virtually all "natural" snack chips made with corn, for example, contain genetically modified corn! How is that natural? It isn't. Why does Whole Foods even carry these products?

Of course, we'll never be as big as Whole Foods, but at least I can sleep at night knowing that what people acquire from us is nourishment, not poison. At least I know I'm fighting to keep people alive, not to have them slow-killed by eating themselves to death.

When I look in the mirror, I can honestly, 100% with integrity, smile and say that I made decisions in the best interests of Natural News readers and customers, and that I never -- NEVER -- sold out my own audience by selling them toxic products for a profit.

There is a line I simply will not cross. That is the line of fundamental human compassion and responsibility to my own support base of customers, readers and fans. Whole Foods has not only crossed that line; they can't even seem to remember where the line was!

Shame on Whole Foods, a massive retailer for Monsanto's genetically modified corn.
