- Monsanto, Dow Chemical File Lawsuit to Destroy Maui County’s GMO Ban (Common Dreams, Nov 14, 2014):

Lawsuit comes just one day after supporters of GMO planting ban in Hawaii filed a motion of their own with local courts seeking “transparency and proper implementation” of the moratorium approved by voters on Election Day

Alongside other plaintiffs, two of the world’s most powerful agrochemical companies, Monsanto and Dow Chemical, filed suit against Maui County in Hawaii on Thursday, less than two weeks after voters there approved a moratorium on the planting and cultivation of genetically-modified crops within the boundaries of their communities.

- Monsanto settles GMO wheat dispute with Northwest farmers for $2.4 million (OregonLive/AP, Nov 12, 2014):

Monsanto Co. said Wednesday it will pay nearly $2.4 million to settle a dispute with Northwest farmers over genetically modified wheat.

No genetically engineered wheat has been approved for U.S. farming, but it was found in Oregon in 2013.

That discovery prompted Japan and South Korea to temporarily suspend some wheat orders, and the European Union called for more rigorous testing of U.S. shipments. Continue reading »

- Former Pro-GMO Biotech Scientist Admits GMOs Aren’t Safe, Refutes Claims by Monsanto (Nation of Change, Nov 1, 2014):

The GMO debate will likely never rest. Therefore, we need more GMO whistleblowers to open people’s eyes about the real dangers of genetically modified foods and crops.

For how long will we need to go back and forth in this GMO battle before a sound conclusion is finally met? If you have been following the GMO debate at all, you probably realize that this issue will likely never rest, as numerous studies on both sides of the spectrum (one side showing safety and the other showing danger) will continue to surface. What’s more, this research as well as opinions will be born out of lies or false substantiation. You’ve likely read headlines like these lately and scoffed: Continue reading »

Description:

Monsanto. The company alone seems to have become the new business “boogie man” over the years with what has been reported about them. Here on The Inquisitr, we reported numerous times on this company, and most of them are not good at all. This includes Roundup Ready being linked to kidney disease, as well as what their GMO wheat has done for Kansas farmers. Despite their reported travesties, Hillary Clinton is a staunch supporter of their projects.

There are more reports going against Monsanto, but from what we have showed, would it be wise to have the company handle the production of the cure for the new scare virus, Ebola? For those who said no, unfortunate news is on your way. Monsanto has now invested $1.5 million into Tekmira, the company in charge of making a cure or vaccine for the Ebola virus.

- The GMO Biotech Lobby’s Emotional Blackmail and Bogus Claims: Monsanto’s Genetically Modified Crops Will Not Feed The World (Global Research, Oct 9, 2014):

“There are 7.2 billion people on the planet. There will be 9.6 billion by 2050. The demand for food will double… [Using GM food and data science is] the only thing that will enable us to feed the planet without encroaching on the forests and wetlands….This represents a business opportunity, but from a societal perspective, it’s very important.” Robert Fraley, CEO of Monsanto, Winner of the World Food Prize 2013 [1].

The claims made by Monsanto do not stack up. Issues pertaining to the weaponisation of food aside [2], GM food represents little more than a massive business opportunity, a way of enriching a handful of people, all carried out under the guise of altruism. Continue reading »

- Another Independent Study Confirms Monsanto’s RoundUp Chemicals are Lethal, Even in Small Doses (Natural Society, Sep 20, 2014):

Published just this month in the International Journal of Toxicology, the study “Glyphosate Commercial Formulation Causes Cytotoxicity, Oxidative Effects, and Apoptosis on Human Cells: Differences With its Active Ingredient,” proposes what most of us have already surmised: Glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide du jour – RoundUp – is utterly killing us. What’s more – it kills us in much smaller servings than the Agriculture industry is dishing out in its common GMO and pesticide spraying practices, and it is made stronger by the additional chemicals used in the RoundUp formula.

Contamination has been the plan from the beginning, or why do you think is it that they have placed GMO trial fields under the cloak of security research right beside important seed banks in Europe?

- Monsanto’s ‘zombie wheat’ case reveals serious legal vulnerabilities in business model (Natural News, Oct 6, 2014):

Monsanto’s business model is falling apart right in front of their own face, because the biotech firm blatantly disrespects the property rights of farmers, contaminating their fields with unauthorized genetically modified seeds. These unapproved GMO seeds inevitably cross-contaminate farmers’ fields, effectively destroying their yields. That’s exactly what happened in Oregon last year when some unauthorized “zombie wheat” from the Monsanto Company went from the lab and intermixed with a farmer’s natural wheat. The debacle disrupted wheat exports as Japan and South Korea blocked shipments. A contingency of farmers have joined forces and sued Monsanto.

Monsanto may finally admit to cross-contaminating farmers’ wheat

Monsanto-Roundup-(Dees)

- New Experimental GE Wheat Contamination in Montana Puts Wheat Farmers at Risk (Center For Food Safety, Sep 26, 2014):

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) today announced that experimental genetically engineered (GE) wheat was discovered in July, 2014 at a  Montana research facility that has not legally grown the variety since 2003.

“Once again, USDA and the biotech industry have put farmers and the food supply at risk,” said Andrew Kimbrell, executive director for Center for Food Safety. “Coexistence between GE and non-GE crops is a failed policy that fundamentally cannot work. Genetic contamination is a serious threat to farmers across the country.” Continue reading »

- Bangladesh government admits Bt eggplant hasn’t passed safety tests and ignores GMO labeling law (Natural News, Sep 29, 2014):

The director of a government testing agency in Bangladesh that granted approval for genetically modified (GM) Bt eggplant (brinjal), which turned out to be a total failure, exploded recently after being questioned about the safety of the “Frankencrop.” Dr. Rafiqul Islam Mondal* from the Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (BARI) angrily told a room full of reporters and farmers that, if they are so concerned about the safety of Bt brinjal, they should conduct their own safety research on the plant.

BARI insists that Bt brinjal does not harm humans, the environment or biodiversity. But the organization never actually tested the crop to see if any of this is true, a fact that ended up sparking a lively debate at a recent news conference. BARI had intended to use the conference as a platform to assert the safety of Bt brinjal, as well as defend its decision to approve it. Instead, its director ended up having a full-on meltdown when the public relations scheme didn’t go as planned. Continue reading »

- Monsanto GMO wheat contamination discovered in Montana (RT, Sep 27, 2014):

Monsanto’s experimental genetically modified wheat has been discovered growing in the second US field in Montana, about a year after the discovery of the company’s unapproved crop growing in Oregon disrupted US wheat exports.

The plants were discovered at a test site at Montana State University, where back in 2000-2003 Monsanto was conducting field trials of its wheat, genetically modified to tolerate Roundup herbicide. Continue reading »

- European Parliament Releases Q&A on GMO Cultivation (Sustainable Pulse, Sep 2, 2014):

The European Parliament (EP) has released a Q&A summary regarding GMO cultivation in the bloc ahead of Wednesday’s EP debate on the subject.

Source: European Parliament

The EU has one of the toughest genetically modified food regulations in the world and the cultivation of GM crops is only allowed following a thorough risk assessment. Yet, as member states are calling for more possibilities to restrict GMO cultivation on their territories, the European Commission has proposed some amendments to the current EU rules. The Parliament and the Council are currently looking at these proposals. Read on to learn more.

Is it allowed to grow genetically modified crops in the EU?

- Mexican Judge Departs From Script, Turns Monsanto’s Mexican Dream Into Legal Nightmare (Wolf Street, Sep 1, 2014):

The U.S. agribusiness giant Monsanto is long accustomed to getting its own way. Through a combination of back-channel lobbying, opaque political funding and revolving-door politics, the multinational agrochemical and biotechnology corporation has subverted, corrupted and infiltrated the elected governments of countries around the world, from the smallest and poorest to the biggest and richest.

However, if recent events in Europe and Latin America are any indication, the tide may well be subtly turning against the interests of Monsanto and its fellow GMO oligopolies and in the favor of independent food growers and consumers. Despite their tireless lobbying efforts in Brussels, the “Big Six” (Monsanto, Du Pont Pioneer, Syngenta, Vilmorin, Winfield and KWS) continue to hit a brick wall of resistance in many of Europe’s biggest markets, including Germany and France. As I reported in April this year, popular resistance is on the rise across Latin America, as indigenous and peasant communities rise up against government legislation that would apply brutally rigid intellectual copyright laws to the crop seeds they are able to grow.

- UK Supermarkets Told to Wake Up to GMO Environmental Damage (Sustainable Pulse,Aug 27, 2014):

GeneWatch UK called on supermarkets Wednesday to wake up to the environmental harm caused by genetically modified (GM) animal feed, imported from North and South America. Blanket spraying of Monsanto’s RoundUp Ready GM crops with the weedkiller RoundUp has destroyed the habitat of the Monarch butterfly in the United States to such an extent that a petition was filed yesterday seeking endangered species protection for the butterfly, which has declined more than 90 percent in under 20 years.

“Supermarkets should act now to secure GM-free-fed meat, milk and eggs for all their customers” said Dr Helen Wallace, Director of GeneWatch UK, “They must help to save the Monarch butterfly and protect other wildlife habitats from being destroyed by blanket spraying with RoundUp”.

- The Monsanto Sponsored Ebola Vaccine Will Kill More People Than the Ebola Itself (The Common Sense Show, Aug 4, 2014):

Monsanto, or Monsatan as many call them, has partnered with the Department of Defense to use a proxy third party company to develop a vaccine against Ebola. The seed money began at $1.5 million. The value of the deal could grow to an estimated $86 million dollars. The company’s name is Tekmira Pharmaceuticals Corporation (TKMR) (TKM.TO), a leading developer of RNA interference (RNAi) therapeutics. “TKM-Ebola, an anti-Ebola virus RNAi therapeutic, is being developed under a $140 million contract with the U.S. Department of Defense’s Medical Countermeasure Systems BioDefense Therapeutics (MCS-BDTX) Joint Product Management Office”.  As breaking and shocking of a news story as this has the potential to be, the real story is that this is not the most important part of the Ebola threat which has invaded the United States.

Don’t miss!



Added: Aug 19, 2014

We’re back! It’s Truthstream News No. 2! First, we just want to say THANK YOU for the overwhelming support we received after we put up the first show. You guys are awesome.

In this second episode of Truthstream News, Aaron Dykes and Melissa Melton expose the phony pretenses behind a massive corporate takeover in Africa and the rest of the world – as well as other examples of Trojan Horse philanthropic aid on the international scene.

We also finally finished Corntamination! (Long time fans: remember that from last summer?) Woooot!

In this episode:
– Aaron sells the world on international food aid at the hands of the planet’s foremost billionaires
– Melissa presents evidence to support her hypothesis that working for the highest echelon of the federal government turns people into bridge trolls
– The duo breakdown the recent U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit and what’s really driving all this “foreign aid”
– John Kerry tells starving Africans not to build any new farms, just to plant some GMO, while Obama informs young African leaders that we can’t live in a world where everybody has a nice house and air conditioning because the planet will “boil over”
– Melissa discovers the benefits of water fluoridation
In a special investigative report, Truthstream follows the trail of biopharming, where science is using genetically engineered crops to growing pharmaceutical and vaccine components. Some of these medications are developed to be eaten directly as food. (Remember Prodigene and Epicyte?)
– and Janet Yellen receives a Letter to the NWO.

- Ebola outbreak may already be uncontrollable; Monsanto invests in Ebola treatment drug company as pandemic spreads (Natural News, July 29, 2014):

A global outbreak of deadly Ebola is underway and has crossed national borders. One infected victim of the horrifying disease flew on international flights, vomiting on board and exposing hundreds of people to the deadly virus which can be transmitted through airborne particles. Ebola has an 8-10 day incubation period, meaning thousands of people could be carrying it right now and spreading it across the cities of the world without even knowing it.

Passengers in Hong Kong and the UK have already shown symptoms of the disease and are being tested, reports USA Today. (2) The Peace Corps has evacuated its volunteers from the region after two were exposed to Ebola. (3)

“Expert claims panic over death of U.S. man in Nigeria is ‘justified'” reports the Daily Mail. (1) “He warned the spread of Ebola could become a global pandemic.” Continue reading »

- Dr Krüger: Glyphosate Increases Birth Defects in Piglets (GMO Evidence, July 28, 2014):

Glyphosate has been found in malformed piglets. The research study was conducted by a team of researchers from Germany and Egypt in collaboration with the Danish pig farmer Ib Pedersen, whose pigs were analysed for glyphosate content.The rate of malformations increased to one out of 260 born piglets if sow feeds contained 0.87-1.13 ppm glyphosate in the first 40 days of pregnancy. In the case of 0.25 ppm glyphosate in sow feeds, one out of 1432 piglets was malformed. In this case, therefore, a  higher dose of glyphosate led to more malformations.

The piglets showed different abnormalities, including ear atrophy, spinal and cranial deformations, hole in the skull, and leg atrophy. In one piglet, one eye was not developed; it had a single large one (cyclopia, a malformation observed in Argentine populations exposed to Roundup spraying). There were piglets without a trunk, with an “elephant tongue”, and a female piglet with testes. One malformed piglet had a swollen belly and the foregut and hindgut were not connected.

- New Séralini study shows Roundup damages sperm (GMOSeralini, July 10, 2014):

A new study in rats found that Roundup altered testicular function after only 8 days of exposure at a concentration of only 0.5%, similar to levels found in water after agricultural spraying, writes Claire Robinson, Managing Editor of GMO Seralini.

The study found no difference in sperm concentration, viability and mobility, but there was an increase in abnormal sperm formation measured 2, 3, and 4 months after this short exposure. Continue reading »
