Extremely Important: Fluoride Treatment – 5 Ways to Detox Fluoride by Lisa Garber, It should be outrageous to think that the very water we drink is poisoned—but the water actually is. Although calcium fluoride is found naturally in underground and ocean water, the sodium fluoride added to the public water supply is virtually toxic, a wolf in the sheep’s garb of improved dental health. (The West Virginia University Rural Health Research Center says that fluoride doesn’t even prevent cavities; vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids are better allies for that.) Genetic Modification of Food, Biosphere, and Humanity: Disaster Unfolding by Roger Landry (TLB)thelibertybeacon We who are in the know constantly rail against Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s). We are awake and aware, through our constant search for knowledge on this subject. We are also painfully aware that the science has no long term credibility.

Altered Genes & Twisted Truth: Dr. Jane Goodall Helps Expose The Dangers Of GMOs Dr. Jane Goodall, one of the world’s most prominent and popular primatologists, ethologists, and anthropologists, is starting to make a lot of noise about genetically modified foods and organisms (GMOs). She’s no stranger to speaking out against them, and joins a very long and growing list of scientists and activists trying to create awareness about the risks they pose to human health and to the environment. In September of 2014, she called for a complete ban of GMOs on her website, urging the citizenry of the world to boycott them. She’s also been very vocal about the pesticides that are commonly sprayed on our food.

Regulators Discover a Hidden Viral Gene in Commercial GMO Crops by Jonathan Latham and Allison Wilson How should a regulatory agency announce they have discovered something potentially very important about the safety of products they have been approving for over twenty years? In the course of analysis to identify potential allergens in GMO crops, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has belatedly discovered that the most common genetic regulatory sequence in commercial GMOs also encodes a significant fragment of a viral gene (Podevin and du Jardin 2012). This finding has serious ramifications for crop biotechnology and its regulation, but possibly even greater ones for consumers and farmers. This is because there are clear indications that this viral gene (called Gene VI) might not be safe for human consumption. It also may disturb the normal functioning of crops, including their natural pest resistance.

The DARK Act: Monsanto's Dream Come True, a Waking Nightmare for Clean Food and the Environment 28th July 2015 By Carolanne Wright Contributing Writer for Wake Up World In a startling victory for Monsanto, the United States House of Representatives, against enormous public and industry outcry, passed H.R. 1599 — widely known as the “Deny Americans the Right to Know Act” or “The Dark Act.” This decision comes despite the opposition of over 300 farmer, environmental and consumer groups who opposed the bill in a letter to Congress, not to mention disapproval from the National Farmers Union, America’s second largest farming organization. Don’t also forget that 93% of respondents in a 2013 New York Times poll were also supportive of mandatory labeling for genetically engineered food.

US Aid To El Salvador Came With Strings Attached: Monsanto Seeds Required El Salvador previously took steps toward banning glyphosate, the potential carcinogen found in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide. A protestor demonstrates against Monsanto in the annual world March Against Monsanto. SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador — Farmers and activists for natural agriculture in El Salvador successfully resisted efforts by the U.S. government to tie foreign aid to the use of GMO seeds, in the latest attempt to link relief money with profits for Monsanto, the controversial multinational agribusiness giant. In 2013, the U.S. offered El Salvador $277 million in aid through the Millennium Challenge Corporation, a foreign aid agency established under President George W.

Why You Should Never Eat Tilapia Tilapia has turned into the universal fish in America today. It’s cheap, not “fishy” tasting, boneless and skinless, and is difficult to foul up by overcooking, which is an issue with numerous other fish assortments. Then again, the tilapia we’re consuming is pretty much totally a cultivated fish, which means you can’t discover wild tilapia in any supermarket or on any restaurant menu. What’s more, the cultivating is generally done on a mechanical scale, with a huge number of fish being collected consistently. Their food is not common — in the wild, tilapia would consume algae and lake plants, yet the homesteads fill out the fish on GMO corn and soy pellets. The measure of empowering fish oils in these animals is pretty much non-existent, discrediting the principle motivation behind why fish is so great for us.

HealthFreedoms – Study: Goats Fed GM Soy Have Altered DNA, Milk, and Offspring First, the herbicide chemical glyphosate was found in breast milk of mothers around the country. Now, there is a new study showing that the DNA in goats fed transgenic, GM soy feed is altered, and the milk itself is of lower quality, affecting the offspring. Kid goats were studied both in vivo and post mortem, and what the researchers of this study found was not good. Colostrum is the ‘pre-milk’ in all mammals that provides incredible immuno-defense to offspring. It comes in first before the regular milk supply to ensure that new babies (in this case, baby goats) are ready to take on the dangerous microbes of the world.
