How Monsanto is Destroying the Brains and Health of Everyone

Matthew Buckley, PSc.D., Waking Times One of my most recent blog entries(1) summarized roughly 10 years of research related to the consequences of inflammatory processes in the periphery of the body, such as the gut, and how this was driving brain degenerative inflammatory processes within the brain. One of the key findings from that research was how pathogenic bacterial waste products known as “lipopolysaccharides” , (LPS) would trigger an immune response, and this immune response would then trigger the brains immune cells, the microglia, to become overly active and degrade brain cells. (LPS is basically small parts of the cell wall of the bad bacteria.)

This response is called “microglial activation”. In short, the process can work like this (note there are other ways to trigger this): 1) Pathogenic bacteria overg row in intestines and create waste products (LPS) which activate the immune system to respond and produce a chemical called “Interleukin 1b”. So what does this all mean? Patent CA2741523A1 - Human ebola virus species and compositions and methods t... Monsanto invests in Ebola Virus with DOD.

News A couple of weeks ago, we cross-posted an article from the website Political Blind Spot about Monsanto and Blackwater. While the article does contain many unsettling facts about the collaboration between the two organizations, it has been brought to our attention that it makes claims that are not backed up by any clear, concrete evidence. We have looked at other articles “debunking” the story. They also raise good points, but some have holes in them. The Monsanto 71: Senators Who Betrayed Constituents in Favor of Biotech Dollars.
