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.

Monsanto Toxicologist Donna Farmer recently made the following statement regarding the toxicity of Glyphosate:

“I’ll give you an example of one of the studies,” she said during the debate, which was aired as part of The Doctors, an award-winning TV show. “They actually injected the Round-Up formulation into the abdomen of the animals and they did have an effect. But that’s not a relevant route of exposure for somebody who is going to be spraying that herbicide. So that’s what we look at and the regulatory agencies look at and, like the other bodies at the World Health Organization. IARC only looks and says, “If I inject it there’s a hazard.” So there’s different ways we look at the data.” (March Against Monsanto)

This is a very interesting statement. Let’s read it again: “IARC only looks and says, “If I inject it there’s a hazard.””

“If I inject it there’s a hazard.” Let that sink in. Then, let’s ask the question: Why does Glyphosate Patent US7771736 include injection as an acceptable means of administration? Read the rest of this entry »

As we go through life popping anything into our mouths that looks good, then just take for granted that multiple trips to the doctor, illness and allergies rising to an astronomical level every day are simply normal, shouldn’t we be asking the most fundamental question of all?

Azure Standard

Dear Azure Customers. We’ve some extremely urgent news to share with you. All of Azure Standard’s Organic wheat, field peas, barley, Einkorn, and beef is grown by Azure Farm on 2,000 acres of pristine, organically certified land in Sherman County, Oregon. The county is considering imposing draconian, highly toxic weed management laws and may force us to have our 2,000 acre organic farm sprayed with Roundup and other toxic herbicides. You read that right: we’d be forced to have our organic farm sprayed with Roundup, and we would then be forced to foot the bill! We’ve just over 1 week to get as much support as possible. Please review the video at https://vimeo.com/216920516 or learn more at https://www.azurestandard.com/healthy-li…/…/azure-farm-moro/ and then take action today. Thank you for your support!
