Pro Football Quarterback Tom Brady Lashes Out on Fake Food Industry
by Paul Fassa
(The Best Years in Life) One of pro football's top quarterbacks, actually currently the top QB, had recently braved stormy waters to successfully challenge the National Football League's (NFL) president Roger Goodell in federal court to have a severe game suspension lifted for allegedly violating the league's regulation on how game balls should be inflated.
I like football. As a Dolphin and Colt fan, I have been against the New England Patriots, the team Brady leads, for years. But now he has publicly denounced junk foods and sodas and the way they are marketed to kids. I'll root for Brady and the Patriots. Especially since there's no hope for my teams this year!
His business partner in nutraceuticals for athletes and the TB12 Sports Therapy Center for holistically restoring athletic injuries, Alex Guerrero, had been attacked by our supreme alphabet soup agencies that protect Big Pharma and Big Food.
It appears Brady is not the only happy camper with Guerrero's treatments and nutraceuticals for athletes. There are many within world class pro ranks who have offered their testimonies. Now Brady is actually a business partner and close friend.
Alex was fined for making false claims about his “Supreme Greens” product and “quackery”, led by the one of the biggest cancer quack institutions of them all, Sloan-Kettering Cancer Institute of New York, the same bunch that had the FDA ban laetrile, a natural cancer cure.
But when consumer groups like U.S. Right to Know petition those same agencies, like the FTC, to investigate Big Food groups for false advertising, absolutely nothing happens. After all, those agencies are there for the benefit of their clients, Big Food, Big Ag, and Big Pharma, the big three protected by the corrupted four, the FTC, USDA, EPA, and FDA.
Recently, Boston Magazine article titled “Tom Brady’s Personal Guru Is a Glorified Snake-Oil Salesman”
printed the usual condescending official health agency propaganda with a one-sided write-up that disparages alternative health practices and attacked Alex Guerrero.
Brady appeared on a Boston radio talk show and defended Guerrero by attacking mainstream medicine and the processed food industry.
Key Points, Excerpts, and Quotes from Tom Brady's Interview
A little background: Tom Brady is 38 years old, a waning over the hill age for most QBs, and currently performing better than ever during his 16 year NFL career. He pointed to himself as living proof of Guerrero's success as a trainer and his products.
Brady blew out his knee in 2008, and he was told his career was toast by the medical establishment. That's when he connected to Alex Guerrero and his techniques for injury recovery. Here's how he explained this on the radio talk show:
Then Brady criticized the medical establishment:
The bombshell of Brady's interview was contained in this statement:
I think we've been lied to by a lot of food companies over the years, by a lot of beverage companies over the years. But we still believe it... We believe that Frosted Flakes is a food...
You'll probably go out and drink Coca-Cola and think 'Oh yeah, that's no problem.' Why? Because they pay lots of money for advertisements to think that you should drink Coca-Cola for a living...
I totally disagree with that. And when people do that, I think that's quackery. And the fact that they can sell that to kids? I mean, that's poison for kids...
When you go to the Super Bowl, who are the sponsors? That's the education that we get. That's what we get brainwashed to believe; that all these things are just normal food groups, and this is what you should eat." (Emphasis added)
Bingo! There you have it. Kudos to Brady for stepping out of the safe mainstream politically and economically correct health box. After all, Coca Cola was once an NFL sponsor, now Pepsico with its sodas and junk foods are, as well as McDonald's and others.
His remarks were covered by some major mainstream media outlets. Much of the feedback from commenting readers was surprisingly favorable.
According to the not-so-mainstream Organic Consumers Association, "Brady may have just done more good for kids, and more damage to Big Food, than we could accomplish in months."
