Dr Caius Rommens developed GMO potatoes for the Idaho-based agbiotech company Simplot. The chief genetic modification he introduced was to silence the potatoes’ melanin (PPO) gene.

SHOCK as Trump signs executive order that will end most regulations and oversight on genetically engineered food

by Mike Adams, Natural News:

GMOs and their related chemical pesticides have long been pushed heavily by establishment Republicans. That’s another important reminder why it’s good to never be swept into a political party. Rather, evaluate each candidate based on their principles and actions.

Even though Trump is far from an “establishment” Republican, to the frustration of health-conscious Americans, he just signed an executive order that might as well be called “the GMO Streamlining Act.” As reported by the Associated Press, this executive order directs federal agencies to reduce or eliminate regulations and oversight mechanisms that might help ensure the safety of genetically engineered crops.

GMI’s for GMO’s

by Joseph P. Farrell, Giza Death Star:

If you’ve been thumbing through your Primer of Biblical Apocalypses or browsing through Apocalypses for Dummies lately, you’ve probably noticed how oddly synchronous all those dire predictions from the past are and how much they resemble the “if-we-can-think-of-it-let’s-do-it” attitude of contemporary corporations, mad scientists, and insane government agencies like DARPA, which – thanks to a suggestion by Mr. J.B. – we respectfully refer to on this site as the Diabolically Apocalyptic Research Projects Agency. We’d almost expect the current Director’s name to be Lucy Furr. And for those of you who are unfamiliar with what synchronicities are, they’re somewhere on the spectrum between coincidence and ineluctable Calvinism.

European Union Approval of Glyphosate Found To Be Based On Plagiarized Science From Monsanto

by Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution:

  • The Facts:Glyphosate, an active ingredient within Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, was recently re-licensed and approved by the European Parliament. However, MEPs found the science given to them was plagiarized, full of industry science written by Monsanto.
  • Reflect On:With so much science showing it’s harmful to humans and the environment, and the fact that several dozen countries have made it illegal, why is it still approved in the UK, Canada, and US? Among a few other places.

Healing from GMOs and Roundup: How to protect yourself and your family

by Joel M. Harrison , Natural News:

In 2005, the rate of patients with chronic diseases almost doubled from seven percent to 13 percent – this started to happen nine years earlier when genetically modified organisms (GMO) were introduced. While the U.S. government approves of genetically modified food, even they can’t hide that fact that it has a lot of adverse effects on humans, animals, and the environment. Such products have caused numerous health problems which often led to more serious and long-term complications due to their high toxicity levels. What’s worse is how GM products leave traces inside the body which only negatively affects the system – for instance, a pregnant woman and her unborn child were found to be carrying toxic insecticide from GM corn inside their bodies.

Marlee Asks, How Do I Combat Pro-GMO Propaganda?

by SGT, SGT Report:
I received this email today from an informed young lady named Marlee who wants to know how she can combat the corporate propaganda about how GMO foods are awesome, because evidently many of her friends are under-informed and gullible. Here’s what she wrote:

I’m a frequent listener, and just wondering if you could shed some light on this video. I have a lot of friends who aren’t exactly informed on much of anything, only what they see on Facebook, shared by other idiots. This video is great for spreading the info that the war on GMOs is misinformed but I was hoping you could help me out in disproving a lot of the claims this video makes. Just for the sake of conversations with my ignorant friends. Some people need the awakening and aren’t getting it because of videos like this, but I am not confident enough to be able to argue the points made in it, just looking for a little help in that. Thanks for all you do, I’m new to the community and so far only listen on youtube, but I’m slowly moving to your other platforms as well.

Thank you.

BILL GATES SAYS THAT ONLY POOR NATIONS SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO EAT REAL MEAT, AND WEALTHY NATIONS FORCED TO CONSUME SYNTHETIC LAB SUBSTITUTE

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

For Africa and other poor countries, we’ll have to use animal genetics to dramatically raise the amount of beef per emissions for them. So no, I don’t think the poorest 80 countries will be eating synthetic meat. I do think all rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they’re going to make it taste even better over time. Eventually, that green premium is modest enough that you can sort of change the behavior of people or use regulation to totally shift the demand.

GENETICALLY MODIFIED CHILDREN – NEW FILM UNVEILS THE ‘MONSTROUS’ CHILD DEFORMITIES CAUSED BY AGROCHEMICALS IN ARGENTINA

by Dr. Mercola, Waking Times:

The shocking film “Genetically Modified Children” unveils the horrors of decades of chemical-intensive agricultural practices in Argentina, where the majority of crops are genetically modified (GM) and routinely doused in dangerous agrochemicals, and the chokehold big tobacco companies such as Philip Morris and chemical and seed giants have on poverty-stricken farmers desperate to earn a living.

The film, produced by Juliette Igier and Stephanie Lebrun, shows the devastating health effects the region’s agricultural sector is having on children,1 an increasing number of whom are being born with monstrous physical deformities. Some of the children’s cases are so severe that, without a medical intervention, will result in death before the age of 5.

Adverse Effects from Personal Care Products Climb 300{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} in 2016

Reports of side effects caused by cosmetics and personal care products sold in the U.S. more than doubled in 2016, and that’s partly due to complaints about WEN by Chaz Dean Cleansing conditioners, according to recent study. [1]

Researchers looked at data on side effects reported to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) from 2004-2016 for products including makeup, sunscreen, tattoos, hair color, perfume, shaving creams, and baby care items. A total of 5,144 adverse events were reported to the agency during that time, with an average of 396 a year, the team writes in JAMA Internal Medicine.

EPA in bed with Monsanto / Bayer, burying studies that show glyphosate causes cancer

by Isabelle Z., DC Clothesline:

With so much scientific evidence supporting the fact that glyphosate causes cancer, how can anyone still believe that weed killers that contain it, like Monsanto’s Roundup – now part of Bayer – are somehow safe? The answer is simple: The company has the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in its pocket, and they’re all too willing to help them cover up damning evidence that their products are toxic.

The EPA is a government agency, and Monsanto knows that lots of people trust authoritative groups supposedly tasked with “protecting” us. It’s been a mutually beneficial relationship over the years, with a recent piece in Bloomberg Businessweek — hardly part of the “alternative media” — breaking down the dirty details of their dealings over the years.

Farmer Conducts Experiment Using GMO and Non-GMO Corn, Discovers Sobering Truth That Animals Know and Humans Don’t

from Government Slaves:

The genetically engineered food experiment began in the mid-1990s and continues unabated to this day, with Bayer recently taking over Monsanto and pumping billions of dollars into its new American GMO division.

But while the GMO food experiment has been highly profitable for the lab technicians who created it, as well as the toxic, synthetic pesticide industry, the question of what it’s doing to our bodies, specifically our internal organs, remains etched in the minds of independent researchers who have studied the crops extensively (GMOs do not undergo safety testing past 90 days and many studies are funded by the industry).

No genetic engineering needed: Simple VINEGAR can help plants resist drought, scientists find

1

by Isabelle Z., Natural News:
Scientists continue to genetically engineer plants that are becoming less and less like anything that nature ever intended, and in the process, many of them are overlooking some very useful natural alternatives.

One such solution was recently discovered by researchers at Japan’s RIKEN Center for Sustainable Resource Science (CSRS). After studying a new biological pathway that is activated in plants during droughts, they found that they could give plants a higher tolerance for drought simply by growing them in vinegar.

The study, which is published in Nature Plants, was led by Jong-Myong Kim and Motoaki Seki. The researchers looked into the mutation in the plant enzyme HDA6 to determine the mechanisms behind its protective effect on plants in drought conditions.

Arkansas Temporarily Bans the Sale and Use of Dicamba Herbicide

by Mike Barrett, Natural Society:
After hundreds of Arkansas farmers claimed their crops had been harmed by the weed-killer dicamba, which was sprayed on neighboring fields, the Arkansas Plant Board voted June 23, 2017, to impose an unprecedented ban on the herbicide.

David Hundley, who manages grain production for Ozark Mountain Poultry in the town of Bay, said:

“It’s fracturing the agricultural community. You either have to choose to be on the side of using the product, or on the side of being damaged by the product.”
