Mexico bans GM corn, plans to phase out imports and the use of Monsanto’s glyphosate

by Divina Ramirez, Natural News:

Mexico, the birthplace of corn, plans to completely ban genetically modified (GM) corn and glyphosate by Jan. 31, 2024. In a decree published on Thursday, Dec. 31, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador noted that the decision aims to contribute to the country’s food security and protect native corn varieties.

In accordance with the decree, authorities will “revoke and refrain from granting permits” for GM corn, which includes imports. The decree also seeks to phase out glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller. GM crops are typically made such that they can tolerate being sprayed with glyphosate.

New Research Adds Evidence That Weed Killer Glyphosate Disrupts Hormones

by Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution:

New research is adding worrisome evidence to concerns that the widely used weed killing chemical glyphosate may have the potential to interfere with human hormones.

In a paper published in the journal Chemosphere titled Glyphosate and the key characteristics of an endocrine disruptor: A review, a trio of scientists concluded that glyphosate appears to have eight out of ten key characteristics associated with endocrine disrupting chemicals . The authors cautioned, however, that prospective cohort studies are still needed to more clearly understand the impacts of glyphosate on the human endocrine system.

US Federal Court Rules FDA Approval of GMO Salmon Unlawful

by Sayer Ji, Green Med Info:

On Thursday, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California ruled the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) violated core environmental laws in approving the GMO salmon

The Court ruled that FDA ignored the serious environmental consequences of approving genetically engineered salmon and the full extent of plans to grow and commercialize the salmon in the U.S. and around the world, violating the National Environmental Policy Act. The Court also ruled that FDA’s unilateral decision that genetically engineered salmon could have no possible effect on highly-endangered, wild Atlantic salmon was wrong, in violation of the Endangered Species Act. The Court ordered FDA to go back to the drawing board and FDA must now thoroughly analyze the environmental consequences of an escape of genetically engineered salmon into the wild.

SHOCK VIDEO OF BILL GATES LAUGHING WHILE SAYING ‘WE TAKE GMO ORGANISMS & SHOOT THEM RIGHT INTO LITTLE KIDS VEINS’ IN BRUSSELS INTERVIEW IN 2015

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

This disgusting video shows a giddy and gleeful Bill Gates laughing as he brags about ‘injecting genetically modified organisms into little kid’s arms’, it is painful to watch. But as you watch it, I want you to remind yourself this is the man whose father ran Planned Parenthood, who preached the gospel of eugenics at the Gates family dinner table, and who trained his son Bill to follow in those footprints, or should we say cloven hoofprints?

Flawed Assumptions Behind GMO Golden Rice

by Sayer Ji, Green Med Info:

Despite decades of development, genetically engineered Golden Rice hasn’t yet been approved for commercial sale, but even if it is, the rice may not reach the vitamin-A-deficient children it’s intended for due to flawed assumptions over farmers’ willingness to plant it

Golden Rice, which is genetically engineered (GE) to contain beta-carotene, the precursor to vitamin A, is among the most polarizing genetically modified organisms (GMOs), riddled with failures from the start.

FARMER WINS $265 MILLION VERDICT AGAINST MONSANTO IN UNANIMOUS RULING

by John Vibes, The Waking Times:

Earlier this month, Missouri peach farmer Bill Bader and his family-owned Bader Farms was awarded $265 million in a lawsuit against Monsanto, the controversial biochemical-agriculture company that is now owned by Bayer.

A unanimous jury awarded Bader and his farm $15 million in compensatory damages plus another $250 million in punitive damages.

Bader’s attorney Bill Randles said that the company has created an “ecological disaster” that has damaged the property, careers, and health of Bader and many others around the world.

GENETICALLY ENGINEERED FOOD – THE LIE THAT WON’T DIE

0

by Dr. Mercola, The Waking Times:

Promises, promises, promises. The toxic world of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and industrial agriculture is built on false promises. For nearly 30 years we have been listening to the propaganda of the big biotech companies like Monsanto/Bayer, Syngenta, DuPont/Pioneer, BASF and others about how genetic engineering will transform farming and food production.

We’ve heard how it will reduce the environmental impact of farming by lowering pesticide use. We’ve been promised that it will increase the nutritional content of food. We’ve been told how it will boost farmers’ profits by increasing yields, and that those increased yields will help “feed the world.”

DARPA: ‘Militarized Microbes’ To Spread GMO Bacteria

from Technocracy News:

DARPA is piled high with Technocrats who invent advanced military applications for the armed forces. Ethical and moral considerations are foreign to the discussion as to the wisdom of building dystopian killing machines. ⁃ TN Editor

The Pentagon’s DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) wants to be able to spread genetically modified bacteria as “explosives sensors.” The United States government could very well be looking into ways to militarize microbes.

New Study Finds Strong Link Between Glyphosate & Human Liver Disease

by Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution:

  • The Facts:A new study outlines a strong link between Glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, and human liver disease.
  • Reflect On:Glyphosate has contaminated much of our soil and it’s in many of the foods we eat. Decades of research has shown the dangers of this product, so how have our federal health regulatory agencies been able to approve this substance, and others, as safe?

Scientists and health professionals have been raising concerns about pesticides for decades. The idea that these products were ever approved as safe by our federal health regulatory agencies is truly mind blowing, given the fact that their toxicity and danger seem to be unquestionable. In 2012, the Pesticide Action Network North America (PANNA) stated that “Children today are sicker than they were a generation ago. From childhood cancers to autism, birth defects and asthma, a wide range of childhood diseases and disorders are on the rise. Our assessment of the latest science leaves little room for doubt; pesticides are one key driver of this sobering trend.”

U.S. Agriculture Secretary Testifies in Favor of Including GMOs and Gene Edited Foods in Organic

by Erin Elizabeth, Health Nut News:

USDA Undersecretary of Agriculture Greg Ibach testified before the House Agriculture Subcommittee last month that plants grown with the help of genetically modified organisms and gene editing could be allowed to be certified organic in the future.

Despite the growing demand for organic food (record sales were reported in 2018), it appears the genetically engineered food and pesticides industry has continued to be remarkably busy behind the scenes.

5G AGRICULTURE – FOOD FROM FRANKENSTEIN FARMING

by Julian Rose, The Waking Times:

The director of development at Ericcson, Marcin Sugak, is excited. He has a new toy to sell to agribusiness farmers. This particular toy, he claims, is going to ‘overcome’ all the difficult new challenges facing agriculture today. It will be ‘A revolution’, he declares. According to the Ericcson corporation, with this new toy, farmers will be able to look at their plants and animals from a completely ‘new perspective’.

Just what might this new perspective be?

GMO Impossible Burger Tests 11x Higher for Glyphosate Residue than Beyond Meat Burger
