We Are What We Eat – The poisoning of our food supply

We now live in a world where it is considered beneficial and necessary to spray poison over all our food and to add more poison (dye, preservatives, flavor enhancers, etc) in processing our food. Then we take more poison to counteract the poisons. Beam me up Scotty, the inmates are insane.” Read the rest of this entry »

This website is designed to provide comprehensive yet simple guidelines for each individual to approach their respective city council with tools on how to end GMO cultivation and toxic pesticides associated with them in their own city or county.

This has been done in San Juan County, Washington and other cities across the nation. Proactive citizens all across the country have taken a stance and made their voices heard, and have made a positive change in their cities by urgently requesting the end of GMO cultivation – this can be done and is being done on local levels, right now, in over 30 cities across the U.S. – but there are as many as 30,000 cities across the nation – we need your help!

Just Label It! Oh yeah, that’s the ticket! Want GMOs (genetically modified / engineered organisms) out of your food supply? Like the UK – Just Label It!

In a pig’s eye! Pay close attention to item 15:

Memorandum by United Biscuits (UK) Limited

International food business operating in 21 countries. It has leading market positions in the UK, Continental Europe and is building its presence in Asia. It has 46 manufacturing sites world-wide and its products are available in over 90 countries. Over 20,000 are employed worldwide of which 16,000 are based in the UK.

NOVEL FOODS AND THEIR LABELLING

15. As a food manufacturer UB has considerable interest in the regulation of labelling of GM foods. We believe that the provision of information to consumers, including appropriate product labelling, is an essential element in achieving consumer acceptance of genetically modified foods.

Panel:
Kathleen Hallal, Moderator

Jack Olmsted, Producer

A huge increase in the incidence and prevalence of chronic diseases has been reported in the United States (US) over the last 20 years. Similar increases have been seen globally.

The herbicide glyphosate was introduced in 1974 and its use is accelerating with the advent of herbicide-tolerant genetically engineered (GE) crops. Evidence is mounting that glyphosate interferes with many metabolic processes in plants and animals and glyphosate residues have been detected in both.

Glyphosate disrupts the endocrine system and the balance of gut bacteria, it damages DNA and is a driver of mutations that lead to cancer. In the present study, US government databases were searched for GE crop data, glyphosate application data and disease epidemiological data.

The significance and strength of the correlations show that the effects of glyphosate and GE crops on human health should be further investigated.

Hey there, Monsanto Man! You like to paint those who are against you, your toxic sludge and what it is doing to our health and the planet as conspiracy theorists without a leg to stand on, while you paint your products as safe and beneficial to the environment.

Isn’t that exactly what you did in Anniston, Alabama, which is now a superfund site due to PCB contamination caused by you that you said was perfectly safe, and in Nitro, West Virginia, where people were poisoned with your Dioxin? You were ordered to pay on both of those catastrophes, weren’t you?

Yet, you still insist, even with numerous lawsuits in your checkered past, to flagrantly declare that your products are safe, once again. You have never once admitted blame nor accepted responsibility for your actions unless forced to by a court with a judge that for some insane reason, you have not managed to “influence.”

Let’s just take a little trip in the Wayback machine…

Warning - Monsanto

Jon Rappoport

No More Fake News

Unpredictable effects. Unknown outcomes. Potential health consequences. Uncertain gene technology.

These aren’t phrases biotech giants like to hear.

They prefer:

“One gene produces one protein.”

“Each gene has a specific function.”

This is the basis for the modern biotech industry, and it applies most definitely to GMO crops.

And it is false.

So for example, when Monsanto says the genes they insert in plants only serve to protect the plants from the herbicide Roundup and have no other function, they’re making it up.

For a brief summary of the situation, see Denise Caruso’s NY Times piece, “A Challenge to Gene Theory, a Tougher Look at Biotech,” July 1, 2007.

Caruso reports on the findings of an “exhaustive four-year effort…organized by the United States National Human Genome Research Institute and carried out by 35 groups from 80 organizations around the world.”

“…genes appear to operate in a complex network, and interact and overlap with one another and with other components in ways not yet fully understood.”

“Evidence of a networked [interacting] genome shatters the scientific basis for virtually every official risk [safety] assessment of today’s commercial biotech products, from genetically engineered crops to pharmaceuticals.”

In other words, each gene inserted in GMO food crops cannot be said to have only one function. There is reason to believe the inserted genes interact with genes already in the plants, and produce unknown effects.

Therefore, bland assurances of safety are smoke blowing in the wind. Read the rest of this entry »
