- GMO plants, GMO people, and cancer (Jon Rappoport’s Blog, April 22, 2014):

by Jon Rappoport

There is an extraordinary parallel between what biotech corporations are doing with food plants, and what cancer researchers are trying to do with humans.

The comparison is not only instructive, it reveals what the future holds.

“If you put a label on genetically engineered food you might as well put a skull and crossbones on it.”
- Norman Braksick, president of Asgrow Seed Co., a subsidiary of Monsanto, quoted in the Kansas City Star, March 7, 1994

And a skull and crossbones would really be an adequate label for GMOs.


- U.S. bill seeks to block mandatory GMO food labeling by states (Reuters, April 9, 2014):

A Republican congressman from Kansas introduced legislation on Wednesday that would nullify efforts in multiple states to require labeling of genetically modified foods

The bill, dubbed the “Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act” was drafted by U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo from Kansas, and is aimed at overriding bills in roughly two dozen states that would require foods made with genetically engineered crops to be labeled as such.

The bill specifically prohibits any mandatory labeling of foods developed using bioengineering.

- Russia will not import GMO products – PM Medvedev (RT, April 6, 2014):

Russia will not import GMO products, the country’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said, adding that the nation has enough space and resources to produce organic food.

Moscow has no reason to encourage the production of genetically modified products or import them into the country, Medvedev told a congress of deputies from rural settlements on Saturday.

“If the Americans like to eat GMO products, let them eat it then. We don’t need to do that; we have enough space and opportunities to produce organic food,” he said.

- History Made: Brazilian Court Says No to Bayer GMO Corn, Sets New Legal Precedence (Natural Society, March 28, 2014):

Brazilians just set an international precedence for getting rid of GMO crops through a shocking and historic legal decision made by the Federal Court of Appeals of the 4th Circuit – TRF4. The court unanimously ruled to annul a decision, previously passed by the Technical Committee on National Security (CTNBio), that would have allowed Bayer’s transgenic, GMO corn, called Liberty Link, to infiltrate the agricultural landscape of the country. This decision will create legal groundwork for other countries to get rid of biotech monopolies and force more thorough risk assessments concerning human health and environmental degradation before releasing GMO crops commercially.

- Brazil’s Federal Public Prosecutor Requests Total Ban of Glyphosate Herbicides (Sustainable Pulse, March 26, 2014):

The Brazilian Federal Public Prosecutor in the Federal District has requested the Justice Department to suspend the use of glyphosate – the most widely used herbicide in Brazil. In addition, the prosecutor wants to challenge 2,4-D and the active ingredients methyl parathion, lactofem, phorate, carbofuran, abamectin, tiram and paraquat.

Two actions have been filed. “The first measure seeks to compel the National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) to reevaluate the toxicity of eight active ingredients suspected of causing damage to human health and the environment. On another front, the agency questions the registration of pesticides containing 2,4-D herbicide, applied to combat broadleaf weeds,” explains the prosecutor on his website.

- Scientist Slams Biotech Industry over Deadly Kidney Disease Epidemic – Exclusive Interview (Sustainable Pulse, March 24, 2014):

Exclusive Sustainable Pulse Interview with Dr Channa Sudath Jayasumana, Lecturer of Pharmacology at Faculty of Medicine, Rajarata University in Anuradhapura.

Dr Jayasumana recently released a study in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health that proposes a link between the world’s number one selling herbicide known as Roundup (aka Glyphosate) and a series of mysterious epidemics of fatal chronic kidney disease of unknown origin (CKDu) affecting several poor farming regions around the world.

In Sri Lanka alone CKDu now afflicts 15% of people of working age in the northern part of the country; a total of 400,000 patients with an estimated death toll of around 20,000.

Watch the videos “Mystery in the Fields” and “Cycle of Death” for 5 minute documentaries providing additional background information on afflicted areas around the world.

Corn rootworm on the roots of a corn plant
Corn rootworm on the roots of a corn plant

- Voracious Worm Evolves to Eat Biotech Corn Engineered to Kill It (Wired, March 17, 2014):

One of agricultural biotechnology’s great success stories may become a cautionary tale of how short-sighted mismanagement can squander the benefits of genetic modification.

After years of predicting it would happen — and after years of having their suggestions largely ignored by companies, farmers and regulators — scientists have documented the rapid evolution of corn rootworms that are resistant to Bt corn.

Until Bt corn was genetically altered to be poisonous to the pests, rootworms used to cause billions of dollars in damage to U.S. crops. Named for the pesticidal toxin-producing Bacillus thuringiensis gene it contains, Bt corn now accounts for three-quarters of the U.S. corn crop. The vulnerability of this corn could be disastrous for farmers and the environment.

- GMOs will unleash global killer ‘ecocide’ across the planet, warns prominent scientist (Natural News, March 12, 2014):

A top scientist and “risk engineering” expert is now publicly warning that GMOs pose a dire, genuine threat to the continuation of life on Earth. Nassim Taleb, author of The Black Swan and Fooled by Randomness, says that GMOs have the potential to cause “an irreversible termination of life at some scale, which could be the planet.”

His full explanation is presented in this public paper which describes how even a small risk per crop species can still result in global ecocide if pursued with abandon. As Taleb explains, “The risk of ruin is not sustainable, like a resource that gets depleted in the long term (even in the short term). By the ruin theorems, if you incur a tiny probability of ruin, as a “one-off” risk, survive it, then repeat the exposure, you will eventually
go bust with probability 1.” (Where “probability 1″ means a 100% chance.)

Rational thinking automatically leads to skepticism of GMO safety

- Chinese government cafeterias go non-GMO; public schoolchildren still being fed poisons (Natural News, March 10, 2014):

Outrage erupted in the health world after China’s Ministry of Education recently announced that it does not serve genetically modified organisms (GMOs) to diners at its cafeteria. GMWatch.org and others report that the government agency has a sign currently posted at the doorway of its cafeteria stating that GMOs are not served to government employees or members of the public who might visit the facility, and yet these same transgenic derivatives continue to be served to China’s public schoolchildren.

The sign, which clearly states that the safety profile of GMOs is questionable at best, was designed to dispel fears about the inadvertent consumption of unlabeled GMOs in the cafeteria. With no verifiable or legitimate consensus on whether or not GMOs are safe for the environment, let alone human consumption, the government agency has chosen to take the precautionary approach by eliminating them altogether in the best interests of government employees and others who dine at the canteen.

The Connection Between The Legalization Of Marijuana In Uruguay, Monsanto And George Soros

Google translation (Original article in German below):

- Is There A Connection Between Monsanto And The Legalization Of Marijuana In Uruguay? (Kopp, Feb 28, 2014):

By William Engdahl

In April, Uruguay, after a vote by the Parliament as the first country in the world to legalize the cultivation, sale and consumption of marijuana. Cannabis users can buy a maximum of 40 grams per month, unless they are Uruguayan citizens at least 18 years old and registered in a public database, is monitored by means of which the quantity they buy per month in specially licensed pharmacies. Less well known is what the seed and genetic engineering giant Monsanto is doing to develop patented cannabis plants, and has also played the role of billionaire speculator George Soros for the legalization.

GMO-DNA

- Confirmed: DNA From Genetically Modified Crops Are Transferred Into Humans Who Eat Them (Collective-Evolution, Jan 9, 2014):

In a new study published in the peer reviewed Public Library of Science (PLOS), researchers emphasize that there is sufficient evidence that meal-derived DNA fragments carry complete genes that can enter into the human circulation system through an unknown mechanism. (0) I wonder if the scientists at these biotech corporations have already identified this method? In one of the blood samples the relative concentration of plant DNA is higher than the human DNA.  The study was based on the analysis of over 1000 human samples from four independent studies. PLOS is an open access, well respected peer-reviewed scientific journal that covers primary research from disciplines within science and medicine.  It’s great to see this study published in it, confirming what many have been suspecting for years.

Commentary:

Chemtrails, fluoride (in drinking water, pesticides, antidepressants, toothpaste, etc.), radioactive particles, GMO, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, lithium, MSGaspartame and many other extremely toxic food additives are destroying your health.

If you can (and your budget allows it) …

… drink and cook only with steam-distilled water & use a carbon filter before distilling your water…

… eat only organic food or better grow your own organic food …

… and do your best to minimize your exposure to all those harmful substances that humanity is bombarded with right now at an unprecedented level as good as possible.

I’ve found that eating an organic raw vegan diet (+ honey) is the best way to detox the body and nourish it with all important nutrients.

Start slowly, because the body will go into ‘super detox mode’ if you move directly from the Standard American Diet to a 100% raw vegan diet.

In the beginning coffee enemas (also used in the Gerson Therapy) and later on water enemas are a must in my opinion.

If you do enemas you should drink 3 glasses (230ml) of (mostly vegetable) juice for each enema to give your body the lost nutrients back.

If you are concerned about lack of Vitamin B12 in a raw vegan diet, then drink wheat grass juice (which is loaded with all kinds of nutrients, not just B12), take spirulina …

… and only for the brave: Drink your shivambu, because it contains lots of vitamin B12 (0,03 mg/day!), vitamin B6 (100mg/day!), folic acid (4 mg/day!) and many other vital nutrients. [Don't have to drink it all! :-); Start slowly! ... or you may experience heavy detox reactions in the beginning; It's difficult to drink it when you are eating a Standard American Diet (SAD; And yes, this is a very sad diet indeed.) with lots of (over-)processed and (over-)cooked foods, inorganic(!) salt, meat, cheese, superfine wheat flour, tons of raffinated sugar, etc. So your body is directly telling you what is good for you and what is not. Books on shivambu: 1, 2, 3, 4]

To get your health and life back eat (and drink):

Green smoothies (*); raw salads (with onions, garlic, sprouts etc. – linseed oil, apple vinegar, lemon juice, honey as dressing suggestion); fruits; wheat grass juice (1, 2, 3, 4) or put wheat gras in your smoothie; vegetables (grated as salad or juice). You can also sprout grains, lentils and quinoa.

Use herbs to strengthen your body, to get rid of parasites and to help the body with detoxification.

Some examples are wild teasel (dipsacus sylvestris), milk thistle (silybum marianum), Rhodiola rosea, jiaogulan, garlic, ginger, onions, aloe, goldenseal, sage, usnea, wormwood, artemisia annua, juniper, echinacea, grapefruit seed extract, lemon seeds, ashwagandha, thyme etc.

With a food dehydrator (1 or 2) you can make raw vegan ‘bread‘, crackers or dehydrate sprouts, fruits for long(er) term storage.

As a side note: I would NOT become a fruitarian or follow the 80/10/10 diet and go overboard with eating fruits if I were you. Nor should you eat too much avocado and oils in general. Everything in moderation. Walnuts and almonds are OK, but too much is too much.

Choose your drinking water & diet wisely, because it will affect everything in your life.

A good diet & alternative medicine can and will cure even cancer, but it takes time (especially nowadays).


- Battle for humanity nearly lost: global food supply deliberately engineered to end life, not nourish it (Natural News, Feb 20, 2014:

After having now analyzed over 1,000 foods, superfoods, vitamins, junk foods and popular beverages for heavy metals and other substances at the Natural News Forensic Food Labs, I have arrived at a conclusion so alarming and urgent that it can only be stated bluntly.

Based on what I am seeing via atomic spectroscopy analysis of all the dietary substances people are consuming on a daily basis, I must now announce that the battle for humanity is nearly lost. The food supply appears to be intentionally designed to end human life rather than nourish it.

roundup-the-ultimate-killing-machine

- Pesticide formulations up to 1000 times more toxic than active ingredients tested for safety (Natural News, Feb 11, 2014):

The same university academic whose controversial research exposed the cancer-causing effects of genetically modified (GM) Bt corn and the Monsanto crop herbicide Roundup (glyphosate) has made another groundbreaking discovery, this time with regard to the understated toxicity of pesticides in general.

Professor Gilles-Eric Seralini and his team from Caen University in France recently found that the vast majority of pesticides sold on the commercial market are far more toxic than we have all been led to believe. As it turns out, all those “inert” ingredients make these assumed-to-be-harmless formulas hundreds, or even thousands, of times more toxic than their approved active ingredients.

Published in the peer-reviewed journal BioMed Research International (BRI), Prof. Seralini’s game-changing study looked at nine major pesticides currently available to farmers. Eight of these nine pesticides, or nearly 90 percent, according to the data, were determined to be significantly more toxic than what government regulators have assumed based on assessments of just their active ingredients.

- EU Eco Groups Slam New ‘Agent Orange’ GM Crops (Sustainable Pulse, Jan 27, 2014):

Testbiotech, GeneWatch UK and the Pesticide Action Network (PAN) Europe, have today published a detailed report on the herbicide 2,4-D. They warn that the growing of genetically engineered plants is likely to increase the spraying of the “agent orange herbicide” 2,4-D and that if approved, it could be imported into the EU as GM animal feed.

monsanto-home-of-gmo-and-agent-orange

Several applications for the import into the EU of genetically engineered plants that are resistant to 2,4-D are currently pending. Some of these plants have been engineered to be resistant to several herbicides at once. Especially in the US these GM plants resistant to 2,4-D are close to being allowed for commercial cultivation.

Find the Full Report Here

“2,4-D is known from its use as a compound in Agent Orange in the Vietnam War. The most visible detrimental effects on human health at that time were caused by contaminations with dioxin, which can occur as a highly toxic byproduct. Dioxin is classified a human carcinogen and is also capable of causing reproductive problems and damaging the immune system. As this report shows, dioxin still can be found in some 2,4-D”, says Hans Muilerman from PAN Europe. “For the substance 2,4-D, additionally, academic studies show toxic effects on DNA, birth deformations and endocrine disrupting effects.”

roundup-the-ultimate-killing-machine

- Pesticide evaluations dishonest and misleading, new study shows (GMO Seralini, Feb 1, 2014):

  • Pesticide formulations as sold and used are up to 1000 times more toxic than the isolated substance that is tested and evaluated for safety
  • Roundup the most toxic of herbicides and insecticides tested
  • Flawed safety evaluations put public health at risk

Does the fact that a pesticide is approved by regulators mean it is safe? A new study suggests not – and casts into question the assumptions on which all regulatory authorizations of pesticides are based.

Pesticides are authorized for use based on medium- or long-term tests on laboratory animals. These are carried out with a single chemical ingredient, which is known as the active ingredient because it is assumed to be responsible for giving the pesticide its pest- or weedkilling action.

- GMOs in USDA Organic Food (Farmwars, Jan 28, 2104):

When it comes to regulations, it’s all in the wording. Not all organic producers take advantage of the huge loopholes in the USDA’s National Organics Program (NOP). There are those who really care, and those who are owned body and soul by GMO pushers. It is a matter of being able to trust your grower/manufacturer to be honest about it. This is one reason why I distrust anyone who promotes coexistence. By promoting coexistence, they support the continued proliferation of GMOs, which will eventually take over all natural seeds if allowed to continue at the rate they are being planted. This is a war, make no mistake about it.

Question:

How can you trust an agency that promotes GMOs to be in charge of a program that supposedly is against GMOs?

YOU CAN’T.
