Valid Needs for GMO. Politics. Allergic Reactions. Impact on Farming. Scientific and Journalistic Corruption. Vandana Shiva: Get the GMO Out of My Mustard (and Why You Should Boycott GM Food) The GMO mustard is based on what has been called the “Terminator Technology” to make the harvested seed sterile. The UN convention on Biodiversity has banned the use of the Terminator Technology. It is also illegal under India’s Plant Variety Protection and Farmers Rights Act. The patent for this technology is held by the US Department of Agriculture and Delta and Pine Land (now owned by Monsanto). Dr. Pental has used the Terminator Technology based on the barnase gene which is lethal to cells. In addition to the terminator trait, the GMO mustard has been engineered to be resistant to the herbicide Glufosinate, which halts photosynthesis, resulting in plant death.

These are technologies for killing life, not technologies for growing food. In India, on our small farms, we grow mustard with wheat. Additionally, GM mustard contaminates non-GMO mustard through pollination. Barnase is known to be harmful, if not lethal, to all cells, animals and humans included. Join the Sarson Satyagraha. EU Dropped Pesticide Laws Due to U.S. Pressure over TTIP, Documents Reveal. Photo Credit: sakhorn/Shutterstock EU moves to regulate hormone-damaging chemicals linked to cancer and male infertility were shelved following pressure from U.S. trade officials over the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) free trade deal, newly released documents show.

Draft EU criteria could have banned 31 pesticides containing endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs). But these were dumped amid fears of a trade backlash stoked by an aggressive U.S. lobby push, access to information documents obtained by Pesticides Action Network (PAN) Europe show. On the morning of July 2, 2013, a high-level delegation from the U.S. Mission to Europe and the American Chambers of Commerce (AmCham) visited EU trade officials to insist that the bloc drop its planned criteria for identifying EDCs in favor of a new impact study. By the end of the day, the EU had done so. Arthur Neslen is the Europe environment correspondent at the Guardian.

GMO and Alien Agenda. Alternatives. Pesticides, Especially Glyphosate (RoundUp) 15 Health Problems Linked to Monsanto's Roundup. Studies. Top Doctor Exposes Monsanto As The Cause Of A Huge Autism Spike! Glyphosate found to be directly responsible for the terrifying rise in autism, food allergies, breast cancer, liver and kidney damage and more MIT Doctor Stephanie Seneff, one of America’s top scientists, has exposed a direct correlation between Monsanto, autism, and many other relatively new health conditions, such as gluten intolerance. In 1970, autism was extremely rare: just one child in every 10,000 had the condition under normal environmental circumstances. Last year this had risen to an estimated 1 in 68, which is a sharp rise that needs to be accounted for.

Seneff looked at autism rates in the first grade of the school system and found a direct correlation between the condition and the increased spraying of American crops with Monsanto’s Roundup Ready, a toxic chemical called glyphosate. “I got worried years ago when I saw (autism) rising and people said Oh, it’s just more reporting and diagnosis,” she says. Trending on the Web. Consumer Self-Defense: 12 Ways to Drive GMOs and Roundup off the Market. ‘Although Monsanto, industry scientists and corporate agribusiness claim that GMO crops and foods, and the chemicals that accompany them, are perfectly safe and therefore need no labeling or independent safety-testing, hundreds of independent scientists, that is, those not on the payroll of Monsanto or its minions, cite literally hundreds of studies showing that GMOs and their companion chemicals, such as Roundup, are extremely toxic. ‘ (Photo: Stephen Melkisethian/flickr/cc) “Monsanto should not have to vouchsafe the safety of biotech food,” said Phil Angell, Monsanto’s director of corporate communications.

“Our interest is in selling as much of it as possible. Assuring its safety is the FDA’s job.” – New York Times, Oct. 25, 1998 “[GMO] Labeling advocates say the issue is about transparency, not safety. Contrary to what some in the biotech industry and the media claim, genetic engineering of plants is not the same thing as selective breeding, or hybridization. As Leu states: 1. 2. 3.

GMO Spies. Genes, Viruses and GMOs. Cauliflower Mosaic Virus: GMO Virus Modifies Plants and Possibly You, Too… By 2025 Half of all US Children Will Have Autism and Monsanto is to Blame. Dave Mihalovic, Prevent DiseaseWaking Times The overuse of Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide on our food is causing glyphosate toxicity and it is now being considered as the single most important factor in development of autism and other chronic disease. At a recent panel discussion about GMOs, a senior scientist has stated that one in two children will be autistic by 2025. Glyphosate does induce disease and is a “textbook example of exogenous semiotic entropy.”

Glyphosate inhibits detoxification of xenobiotics and interferes with cytochrome P450 enzymes, which enhances the damaging effects of other chemical residues and toxins, and very slowly damages cellular systems in the body through inflammation. Residues of glyphosate are found in sugar, corn, soy, and wheat, some of the main components of the Western diet.

Common psyche drugs and vaccines require the Cytochrome P450 gene 2D6 in order to be metabolized. 2D6 refers to the most major metabolic liver enzyme. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. The secret GMO war: double agents, betrayal, greed? The secret GMO war: double agents, betrayal, greed? By Jon Rappoport December 26, 2014 NoMoreFakeNews.com I’ll start at an odd place, a seemingly innocuous place. We need to understand the distinction between two kinds of labeling. Voluntary labeling=“I own this health-food store, and I’m doing my best to sell you non-GMO products. Mandatory labeling=“Vermont has decided that all food products sold in the state which contain GMOs must be labeled as such—‘this product contains GMOs’.” Two very different types of labels. Also, one type is voluntary, and the other becomes mandatory after passage of a vote, in a legislature or through a ballot measure.

So what? Well, let me put it to you this way. Can you guess? I’ll break it down. On the other hand, if suddenly, out of the blue, mandatory labeling became law, the whole voluntary non-GMO label enterprise would be obsolete. “We put non-GMO labels on our food. “Not really. Does that show you something? There’s more. We’re not done yet. And oh yes. Barack Obama and the Monsanto betrayal. Barack Obama and the Monsanto betrayal by Jon Rappoport May 7, 2014 www.nomorefakenews.com Under the selective radar of mainstream media, Barack Obama has been carving out a whole new level of support for Monsanto and other destructive biotech giants. From Scott Creighton, “Obama Pitches India Model of GM Genocide to Africa”: “At the G8 Summit held two weeks ago at Camp David, President Obama met with private industry and African heads of state to launch the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, a euphemism for monocultured, genetically modified crops and toxic agrochemicals aimed at making poor farmers debt slaves to corporations, while destroying the ecosphere for profit.

“But African civil society wants no part of this latest Monsanto aligned ‘public private partnership.’ “Of course, that’s an outrageous lie. Support self-sufficiency for the small farmer? Obama? During his 2008 campaign for president, Barack Obama transmitted signals that he understood the GMO issue. Wake up. Monsanto/Bayer's GM Plants Contaminate Europe Despite Ban. Sayer Ji, Green Med InfoWaking Times New evidence reveals that despite a ban on cultivation of GM rapeseed in Europe, Monsanto and Bayer’s plants are now freely growing there. A new study published in PLoS titled ,”Unexpected Diversity of Feral Genetically Modified Oilseed Rape (Brassica napus L.) Despite a Cultivation and Import Ban in Switzerland,” is believed to be the first report of its kind showing that despite a cultivation and seed import ban of genetically modified (GM) oilseed rape in Switzerland, Monsanto and Bayer’s GM plants have been introduced into the environment there, confirming fears that once the GM genie has been let out of the bottle it can not be put back.

The GM plants were found growing freely along railway lines and in port areas at four sites in 2011 and 2012, with the most afflicted being the Rhine port of Basel and the St. In fact, the study addresses this possibility directly: About the Author. What Parents Need To Know About Monsanto: “By 2025 One In Two Children Will Be Autistic” “Children today are sicker than they were a generation ago. From childhood cancers to autism, birth defects and asthma, a wide range of childhood diseases and disorders are on the rise.

Our assessment of the latest science leaves little room for doubt; pesticides are one key driver of this sobering trend.” October 2012 report by Pesticide Action Network North America (PANNA) (source)(source) In 1975, 1 in every 5000 would develop autism. In 1985, it was 1 in every 2,500. ‘If it is an environmental cause that’s contributing to an increase, we certainty want to find it.” – Craig Newschaffer, an epidemiologist at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (source) Research continues to surface indicating that autism goes far beyond just genetics. “It’s time to start looking for the environmental culprits responsible for the remarkable increase in the rate of autism in California At a recent event sponsored by the holistic-focused Groton Wellness Organization, she stated that: Dr.

Syngenta Faces Dozens of Lawsuits Over GMO Seed - Cornucopia Institute. LaCrosse Tribune by David Pitt DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Agrochemicals giant Syngenta is facing a growing number of lawsuits challenging its release of a genetically modified corn seed that China had not approved for import, with losses to farmers estimated to be at least $1 billion. More than 50 lawsuits have been filed in 11 major corn-growing states, including Illinois, Iowa, Missouri and Nebraska with hundreds more being prepared.

Some suits are from farmers represented by individual attorneys, others are class-action lawsuits representing hundreds more. A federal court panel that manages complex lawsuits involving large numbers of plaintiffs has scheduled a Dec. 4 hearing in Charleston, South Carolina, to decide where to consolidate the cases. The legal dispute centers around Syngenta’s sale of a hybrid corn seed called Agrisure Viptera, which was genetically altered to contain a protein that kills corn-eating bugs such as earworms and cutworms.

Dramatic Correlation Shown Between GMOs And 22 Diseases. Anti-monsanto(image by rob kall) As Use Of GMO's Crops Glyphosate Rise So Do Critical Diseases By Kevin Zeese and Margaret Flowers There is a growing movement for labeling of GMO crops, and many would go further and ban GMOs completely. Currently there is a close vote in Oregon on a GMO labeling initiative, with advocates for labeling 0.3% behind and raising money to check ballots (we urge your support). Those who profit from GMOs spent $20 million to prevent labeling in Oregon. Vermont is about to be sued to prevent GMO labeling. Millions have marched against Monsanto urging labeling or the banning of GMO products. Indeed, President Obama's food czar is a former Monsanto executive.

Stop GMOs(image by Nigel Hanlon) The research highlighted below, "Genetically engineered crops, glyphosate and the deterioration of health in the United States of America," was published in The Journal of Organic Systems this September and links GMOs to 22 diseases with very high correlation. The 5 Surprising & Less-Known Reasons You’re Packing On Extra Weight. Obesity has become a massive issue in the United States. How big of an issue you ask? It’s reported that 1 out of 3 Americans today are obese. That’s a statistic that can’t be ignored much longer.

In her article, Americans Are Huge: 5 Surprising Reasons Why We May Be Getting Fatter, author Martha Rosenberg notes that the weight of the average American increased by 24 pounds in the four decades between 1960 and 2000, the likes of which she believes is associated with 5 key factors. However these factors may be surprising to most considering that none of the factors mention the most commonly discussed cause of weight-gain, calories.

While calories are definitely a crucial part of the equation, there are a number of other environmental and lifestyle factors that are likely to play a much more significant role, mainly because most people don’t realize they’re affected by them, and therefore fail to address them. These factors are as follows: #1 Antibiotics In Food & Medicine. Guatemalan Indigenous Communities Beat Monsanto & Seed Privatization. In Sololá, hundreds of campesinos mobilized to oppose the “Monsanto Law,” which would have opened Guatemala to the privatization of seed. (WNV/Jeff Abbott) Jeff Abbott, Waging Nonviolence GuestWaking Times Late in the afternoon of September 4, after nearly 10 days of protests by a coalition of labor, indigenous rights groups and farmers, the indigenous peoples and campesinos of Guatemala won are rare victory.

Under the pressure of massive mobilizations, the Guatemala legislature repealed Decree 19-2014, commonly referred to as the “Monsanto Law,” which would have given the transnational chemical and seed producer a foot hold into the country’s seed market. “The law would have affected all indigenous people of Guatemala,” said Edgar René Cojtín Acetún of the indigenous municipality of the department of Sololá.

Originally passed on June 26, the Monsanto Law was written to protect the intellectual property rights of multinational companies in their investments within Guatemala. Sacred crops.
