The Public Health Ramifications of GMOs and Herbicides. Why Is The Deadstream Media Ignoring These GMO Studies? - TruthTheory. By Derrick Broze via Activist Post Despite new research indicating health concerns and conflicts of interest related to Genetically Modified foods, the corporate media has, once again, remained silent.

Why Is The Deadstream Media Ignoring These GMO Studies? - TruthTheory

In late December, a series of studies and news stories went largely unreported and ignored by the corporate, deadstream media. These reports covered blatant conflicts of interest between the biotechnology corporations promoting genetically modified or engineered products and the researchers and politicians guiding legal policy. There was also the issue of a new study that shows negative health affects with rats who ingest genetically engineered food.

Roundup in Food: Are You Eating This Toxic Contaminant?

Mercola In 2009, a French court found Monsanto guilty of lying; falsely advertising its Roundup herbicide as "biodegradable," "environmentally friendly" and claiming it "left the soil clean. " We're now starting to understand just how false such statements are. For example, last summer, a groundbreaking study revealed a previously unknown mechanism of harm from glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup. The research showed that glyphosate residues, found in most processed foods in the Western diet courtesy of GE sugar beets, corn, and soy, "enhance the damaging effects of other food-borne chemical residues and toxins in the environment to disrupt normal body functions and induce disease. " If You Eat Processed Food, You're Eating Glyphosate. Voluntary Smart Labels Preempt States’ and Consumers' Rights. By Dr.

Voluntary Smart Labels Preempt States’ and Consumers' Rights

Mercola According to the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), 80 percent of the foods on your grocery store's shelves contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs).1 These foods are also most likely to be contaminated with toxic pesticide residues. 19 Studies Suggest Link Between GMOs and Serious Organ Damage. A new report published in the March 1 issue of Environmental Sciences Europe has revealed a connection between genetically modified foods and significant risk of developing organ disruptions, particularly in the liver and kidneys.

19 Studies Suggest Link Between GMOs and Serious Organ Damage

The research was conducted by a team of scientists including Gilles-Eric Séralini, professor of molecular biology at the University of Caen in France. Séralini and his team reviewed 19 animal based studies, some of which showed that consuming genetically modified corn or soybeans led to the organ disruptions, with male kidneys responding the worst. Are GMOs Making You Fat? An animal study done by the Norwegian School of Veterinary Science suggests that genetically modified foods contributes to weight gain, excessive hunger, and other changes in the body.

Are GMOs Making You Fat?

The study was conducted on rats and salmon over a 90-day period, during which the test groups were fed an entirely GMO diet. The rats that received a diet of GMO corn grew steadily fatter than the control group, which was fed only non-GMO corn. In addition, the rats grew faster and ate more food, more often. The 8 most SURPRISING places you'll find GMOs. GMOs fail to improve yields 'and will eventually lead to ruin' Study shows Monsanto's Bt toxin kills human embryo cells. (NaturalNews) More evidence has surfaced showing that Monsanto's Bt toxin, which the company claims doesn't harm humans, is definitively poisoning the populace.

Study shows Monsanto's Bt toxin kills human embryo cells

New research out of Canada explains that Bt toxin not only accumulates in human tissue but also kills human embryo cells in pregnant women. For their study, researchers from the University of Sherbrooke Hospital Centre in Quebec looked at pesticides associated with genetically modified (GM) foods, and particularly Bt toxin engineered into some varieties of GM corn and soy. They focused on how these poisons affect pregnant women and their unborn babies. Based on an analysis of the blood profiles of 30 pregnant women and 39 non-pregnant women, the team determined that CryAb1, a type of Bt toxin, was present not only in pregnant women but also their fetuses.

Additionally, Bt toxin was observed to actually kill human embryos in vivo, or inside the bodies of the women. Sources for this article include: GMO study finds 'indications of harmful and adverse effects' Statements of the safety of GM crops rely on the absence of evidence of harm in specific research tests, rather than actual evidence of safety.

GMO study finds 'indications of harmful and adverse effects'

That is a too low standard for adequate protection of human and environmental health. A new study commissioned by the Norwegian government, and conducted by a nationally recognised scientific authority on the safety of biotechnologies, concludes that available scientific data on GM crops is inadequate to prove their safety. The scientific report was commissioned by the Norwegian Environment Agency and completed last year, before being publicly released in June by the Genok Centre for Biosafety, located in the Arctic University of Norway. The Genok Centre is a nationally-designated centre of competence on biosafety issues. The new study analyses a dossier by giant agribusiness conglomerate, Monsanto, submitted to the Brazilian government, and conducts a comprehensive review of the available scientific literature from other sources.

According to Dr. GMO Safety. Monsanto Protection Act Part 2? New Bill Introduced Spells Bad News For GMO Activists. A couple of years ago, a bill was introduced (H.R. 933) allowing big biotech corporations, like Monsanto, to override United States federal courts on the issue of planting experimental genetically engineered crops all across the US.

Monsanto Protection Act Part 2? New Bill Introduced Spells Bad News For GMO Activists

This rendered the government powerless when it came to stopping other biotechnology corporations from planting and harvesting. The measure shields sellers of genetically modified seeds from lawsuits, even if the resulting crops cause harm. As a result, the public labelled this bill “The Monsanto Protection Act.” This time, a bill has been introduced, dubbed the “Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act Of 2015.” Proposed by United States Congressman Mike Pompeo, the bill is aimed at overriding bills in roughly two dozen states that would require foods made with genetically engineered crops to be labeled as such.

March Against Monsanto explodes globally... World citizens stage massive protests across 38 countries, 428 cities... mainstream media pretends it never happened.

March Against Monsanto explodes globally... World citizens stage massive protests across 38 countries, 428 cities... mainstream media pretends it never happened

(Tweet this story #MarchAgainstMonsanto) Protesters from New York, London, Berlin, Paris and even across South America, Asia and India rallied against the toxic agricultural practices of Monsanto, a corporation whose business model depends on poisoning the citizens of the planet, destroying the agricultural ecosystem, monopolizing the seed supply and hiring online character assassins to attack anyone who opposes its agenda. Protesters worldwide took to the streets today to demand GMO labeling and bans on Roundup (glyphosate), the toxic herbicide chemical that even the World Health Organization recently linked to cancer.

Oz is no stranger to public controversy concerning his comments on GMO food, pesticides and the biotech industry. It appears that he is now the center of his biggest challenge yet. Having been adored by the mainstream since his show began in 2009, Dr. Oz is now facing his biggest attack to date. Former Pro-GMO Scientist Speaks Out On The Real Dangers of Genetically Engine... By Thierry Vrain I retired 10 years ago after a long career as a research scientist for Agriculture Canada. When I was on the payroll, I was the designated scientist of my institute to address public groups and reassure them that genetically engineered crops and foods were safe. There is, however, a growing body of scientific research – done mostly in Europe, Russia, and other countries – showing that diets containing engineered corn or soya cause serious health problems in laboratory mice and rats.

WikiLeaks Cables Reveal U.S. Government Planned To “Retaliate & Cause Pain” On Countries Refusing GMOs. Studies that link Genetically Modified (GM) food to multiple human health ailments are not the only thing that has millions of people questioning the production of GM food. There is fact that previously classified secret government documents exist which show how the Bush administration developed ways to retaliate against countries that were refusing to use GM seeds, for example. If information about our food needs to be concealed from the public domain, then something has gone seriously wrong with the food industry. It’s great to have an organization like WikiLeaks shed some light into the world that’s been hidden from us for so many years.

GMO Pseudo Science and Deception

Unregulated Sale Of Monsanto’s GMO Corn, Canola Approved By USDA. While the rest of the country braces for a government shut-down, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) quietly approved three new biotechnology innovations for deregulated sale in America: genetically-modified corn and canola produced by Monsanto. According to APHIS, the corn and canola products were approved because there is no significant impact on human or environmental health. The approval comes despite the fact that there are multiple scientific studies indicating that cultivation of GMO crops breeds pesticide-resistant bugs and links between consumption of GMOs and human health issues.

A New GMO and Approved Increase in Toxins. Growing a new genetically modified (GMO) food using a chemical labeled by the Environmental Protection Agency as a "probable human carcinogen" is now legal, thanks to a quiet late-August approval by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The Center for Food Safety says the new Bayer CropScience genetically engineered (GE) soybean crop, called FG72, will likely cause a fourfold increase in the use of isoxaflutole, or IFT, a toxic herbicide.
