Recently, the Lancet sent me an article on its Dementia Commission:

“After decades of neglect, dementia was thrust into the international spotlight in 2013 with the G8 Dementia Summit in London, UK, followed 2 years later by the First WHO Ministerial Conference on Global Action Against Dementia. Against this background, The Lancet launched a Commission to review the available evidence and produce recommendations about how best to manage—or even prevent—dementia. “

Tell you what, Lancet, since your article emphasizes “leaving no one behind,” I would suggest that since this commission appears to not address the fact that the wholesale use of pesticides, Glyphosate in particular, is most likely one of the main causes of the disease, then your “leaving no one behind” statement really means to leave no one behind in actually getting the disease, not eradicating it.

Barb’s note: This is a must-see comprehensive documentary about Monsanto’s history of government collusion in creating and spreading toxic chemicals around the world. It was created one year ago, in 2016. Since the new President was elected, it appears that he has also adopted the previous administrations’ Monsanto-friendly policy.

If there were any doubts about President Trump being in bed with the biotechnology industry spearheaded by Monsanto, those doubts can be firmly put to rest.

The Trump administration will attack overseas regulations that restrict the export of GMO crops and other products resulting from American technological innovation, said U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer at the first meeting of a newly created interdepartmental task force on rural America (link insertion by author). “We are going to bring cases at the WTO and other venues, we’re going to insist that any barrier be science-based, and the United States will increase exports,” he said.

“Science-based” is pro-industry jargon created by the biotech pushers. What this term has come to mean is anything but “science-based.” It represents propaganda put forth to fool the public into believing that false claims of safety disguised as scientific fact invented by the biotech industry to promote sales of genetically engineered organisms (GMOs) and their associated pesticides/herbicides is legitimate science. It is not. Read the rest of this entry »
