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.

Your Favourite Brand of Orange Just Tested Positive For High Amounts of Glyphosate Herbicide

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.

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.

GMI’s for GMO’s

0

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.

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.

List Of Products & Brands That Tested Positive For Monsanto’s Glyphosate

0

by Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution:

The Facts:Glyphosate is a carcinogenic chemical that can be found in an alarming number of food products. Traces have even been found in companies that employ the “Organic” label.

Reflect On:Think about what you buy and consume. By voting with your dollar and opting out of foods that contain this chemical, you are telling Monsanto you don’t want it. The power lies in the hands of each and every one of us.

Monsanto Guilty Verdict Is Only Beginning

by F. William Engdahl, New Eastern Outlook:

A jury trial in California has resulted in a guilty verdict against the agrichemical and GMO giant, Monsanto, now Bayer/Monsanto. The judge has ordered Monsanto to pay damages of USD 289 Million to former school groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson, who has non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. His lawyer argued it was caused by Monsanto’s glyphosate-based weed-killer Roundup. Not surprisingly Monsanto plans to appeal the verdict. The impact of the ruling, regardless the outcome of the appeal, will unleash worldwide consequences that spell huge problems for the entire GMO agrochemicals business model.

The Johnson trial, Dewayne Johnson v. Monsanto Co., CGC-16-550128, in California Superior Court in San Francisco,is the first of more than 5,000 such cases across the United States awaiting trial for claims that Roundup ingredients cause cancer.

New Law Could Exempt Thousands of Genetically Engineered Foods From Labeling

by Derrick Broze, Activist Post:

As the U.S. Department of Agriculture works to establish a uniform national standard for labeling foods that may be genetically engineered, critics continue to call out the dangers of putting the federal government in charge of the situation. The federal government was first granted this authority in July 2016 when former President Obama signed into law a bill which amended the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946 to require the Secretary of Agriculture to establish the national standard for labeling GE foods. The bill was hailed as a victory for activists, and a boost for the economy as it would help keep food costs down for low income families. Unfortunately, the bill was neither.
