Playing God: Crispr’d GMO Food Will Stock Grocery Shelves Within 5 Years

from Technocracy News:

The FDA is lobbied and dominated by Big-Ag Technocrats who insist that GMO food is ‘substantially equivalent’ to its natural counterpart, so the GMO food race is full-speed ahead. This trend will substantially change the entire global food chain.  ⁃ TN Editor

A geneticist at the University of California who helped invent the gene-editing tool Crispr told Business Insider she believes its most profound impacts will be on food.

Several Crispr’d crops have already been made, and although you can’t buy them yet, she said she expects to see them in grocery stores within 5 years.

US FDA Lifts Ban on GMO ‘Frankensalmon’

by F. William Engdahl, New Eastern Outlook:

Frankenfoods is a term developed by consumer groups questioning the health and safety of genetically modified plants or GMO. The US Food and Drug Administration has just lifted an earlier ban on commercialization of the first genetically modified food, Salmon. This is the first time ever permission to sell GMO animals for human consumption in the US has been allowed. It should raise alarm bells not only in the USA.

On March 8, the FDA, responsible for food safety, lifted an earlier ban on sale of GMO salmon by the Massachusetts biotech company, AquaBounty. Until now the company had been prevented from importing its GMO eggs to its salmon tanks in Indiana.

The Gates Foundation is funding a campaign to “end world hunger” by promoting GMO technology. The organization has hired 400 “science ambassadors” to influence agricultural policy in 35 countries.

In the last four years, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has donated a total of $15 million to two global campaigns aimed at “ending world hunger” by expanding the use of GMO technology.

GMO FOODS WILL SOON BE MISLABELED AS ‘BIOFORTIFIED’

from Waking Times:

If you have ever been to Berlin, Germany in the late Fall, you know how miserably wet, cold, and windy it can be. The only real refuge from those elements is to be found indoors. But even then there can be events that drive you right back outdoors and into the elements. Such was the case with the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses (CCNFSDU), which was holding its 40th session during the week of November 26-30, 2018, in that city.

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.

THE CREATOR OF GM POTATOES COMES CLEAN ABOUT THE HIDDEN DANGERS OF THIS NEW FRANKENFOOD

by Alex Pietrowski, Waking Times:

“I somehow managed to ignore the almost daily experience that GM potatoes were not as healthy as normal potatoes.” ~Caius Rommens, author of Pandora’s Potatoes: The Worst GMO’s

Activist and concerned citizens have for years been ringing the alarm bells over genetically modified (GM) foods taking over our food supply.

There are several critical concerns surrounding this issue. We do not yet know what the long-term health effects will be of mass consumption of GM products. We know that they have in some cases been linked to the development of cancer. Production of GM crops requires massive amounts of patented chemical fertilizersherbicides and seed activators. GM crops contribute to monoculture. GM seeds are patented by seed companies and GM crops are known to migrate between fields, leaving non-GM farmers liable for patent infringements. GM crops represent the corporate takeover of the food supply and will make the entire world dependent on for-profit for survival.

Documents Reveal How Monsanto & The EPA Bury Cancer Research

by Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution:

  • The Facts:Multiple documents have emerged over the years showing the corruption that plagues Monsanto. In this case, they colluded with the EPA to stifle cancer research and any connections to their product.
  • Reflect On:With so many examples and info available on the concerns that Roundup herbicide brings to the table, why is the US and Canada in the small majority of countries that accept these products and deem them safe, despite evidence showing the opposite?

Russian Food: NonGMO / Organic vs Western Food: Poison as Food

Russian Food: NonGMO / Organic vs Western Food: Poison as Food by Rory – The Daily Coin

We are not surprised at this truth. We actually thought this had already become a reality. Back in 2016 when Russia ban the import of GMO crops, food and, most importantly, seeds, the western pushers of poison as food went into a frenzy. Not only did Russia ban GMO’s, China made strides to follow suit, although limited in scope and ultimately the Chinese efforts failed.

from Collective Evolution:

  • The Facts:Cheerios, Quaker Oats, and other breakfast cereals are contaminated with Glyphosate, among other things. It was also recently discovered that some of the most popular brands of Orange Juice are also chock full of this herbicide.
  • Reflect On:Did we not learn from DDT? How, after so many publications that clearly show multiple causes for concern with regards to human health and environmental impacts

(Posted with permission from the Children’s Health Defence team). In August, news broke that Cheerios, Quaker Oats, and other breakfast cereals were contaminated with glyphosate weed killer. Just this week, more news of glyphosate in snack bars. Parents across the nation became concerned about their family’s breakfast foods and snacks. Now we learn we must also be looking at the most popular breakfast beverage, orange juice, as well.

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.

GMO Lobby Plots to Corrupt EU Court Ruling on Gene Editing

by F. William Engdahl, New Eastern Outlook:

The GMO lobby, led by Bayer/Monsanto, Syngenta and others have begun to develop a counter-attack to try to neutralize the unexpected and, for them, devastating EU European Court of Justice ruling in July requiring that plants modified through so-called gene-editing DNA techniques must submit to the same licensing risk-assessment procedures as all other GMO plants. The ruling caught the GMO industry off-guard. Now they prepare a counter-attack as we might expect from the developers of Agent Orange, neonicotinoids or similar toxins.
