March On DC To Lower Food Prices & Prevent Toxic Chemicals Causing Cancer!

Trump promised to fight the corporatocracy that has taken over America and reduce molotov-trumpthe cost of healthcare; Let’s see him do it! Do it and achieve 2 goals, lower the cost of food to Americans and protect their health!  Both goals can be partially achieved by one simple action. Ending agricultural tax incentives that literally kill millions of Americans yearly while making our nation dependent upon foreign nations for overpriced food!  What tax incentives?  The growing of GMO corn for ethanol! What could be such a target? Bayer-Monsanto!  Any good businessman like Trump, will clearly see the problem with subsidizing a money losing business and how to solve it. Stop the tax funding of growing corn for ethanol!

A PONZI SCHEME: The last administration supported the Nonsense Idea that we could grow Corn and use it to create fuel, Ethanol.  Every businessman knows this is a ponzi scheme.  First of all, to make Ethanol appear even slightly cost effective, congress uses Money greedyour tax dollars to subsidize agriculture that grows Monsanto’s “roundup ready” corn, a gmo atrocity. Secondly ethanol has much less energy than gasoline so per gallon it does far less to drive your car and distance!  Finally ethanol corrodes the mechanical technology that makes your car work, it damages your car!  Subsidizing and growing corn for ethanol is a ponzi scheme. It allows corporate CEOS to fill briefcases full of tax dollars while you get taxed for overpriced, engine damaging gas!

Food Prices Go Up! America becomes dependant upon foreigners!  Because of your tax dollars funding GMO corn, it is so profitable for farmers that they stopped growing food in America and turned to GMO corn for ethanol.  This program was initiated by the worst president the US ever had, Jimmy Carter.  Now your food comes from Mexico and everywhere coins-1015125_640but America. Meat prices go through the ceiling as corn which used to feed cattle is now used for ethanol!  Chicken prices rise as farmers are pressed by high grain costs.  Worse yet, “RoundUp,” Monsanto’s supposedly safe glyphosate pesticide (which must be used with their GMO corn)  is now known to cause cancer and to kill of the bacteria in soil that keep both humans and plants healthy!  Americans are finally learning about the dangers of gmo foods even from GMO scientists!

Pesticide and GMO food, A Huge Cost In lives And A Driving Force In Health Care’s Disastrous costs! Killing Americans with chemically induced cancer and many other diseases by damaging their spray-24302_640digestive systems is clearly now seen as the side effects of using RoundUp and GMO food. Countries are starting to totally ban glyphosate (RoundUp). Monsanto’s toxic GM crops have been banned all over the world as foreign countries discover the toxicity of glyphosate, RoundUp.  While healthcare needs help and the replacement of Obama Care with something more productive,  reducing the incidence of disease, like cancer, by prevention can be accomplished in a very short time.  Just bring back healthy food, locally grown fresh food, grown in America!

Stop the Corporatocracy that has taken over America for its own profits at the cost of usetrump-molotove-corpsour independence and American lives, Monsanto being a key player.  American’s are learning about the dangers of GMO food and yet labeling food as GMO food has been prevented by Monsanto and Big Agriculture’s financial payoffs to the “Swamp” of Washington’s congressmen. Moreover the farce of Ethanol is being paid for by our taxes before and our earnings after its creation.  One Action can solve to problems: stop funding GMO Corn for fuel and bring back safe locally grown  food for American’s to consume!

drain-the-swampHere is a reason to march on Washington. Drain The Swamp!

Show Trump you want safe food, lower food costs, and reduced healthCare costs by protecting the safety of our food production system from toxins.

Drain the swamp of corporate bribes in Washington DC! Give power back to the people!

7 Foods Experts Won’t Eat

1. GMO FOODS (Any of them)

The Expert: Jeffrey Smith, author of Seeds of Deception and founder of Institute for Responsible Technology

The Situation: GMO foods encourage the massive spraying of herbicides on our topsoils, polluting the ground, waterways, animals and humans. Scientific studies have shown the RoundUp Ready genes in GMO foods to transfer to our intestinal flora and the pesticide producing genes, called Bt-toxins, to be present in both unborn fetuses and their mothers. In short, GMO foods pollute our environment and our bodies. No long term health studies of GMO foods have been performed on humans. In addition to polluting our bodies with mutant DNA, eating RoundUp Ready GMO foods insures a hefty dose of herbicide given that GMO crops are even more heavily sprayed than conventional non-organic crops. The environmental, political, economic, and social damage by GMO foods is staggering. GMO foods include corn, soybeans, sugar beets, potatoes, alfalfa, canola, potato, papaya, rice, honey, squash, rapeseed, tomatoes, sweet corn, tobacco, peas, and more.

The Solution: Check that all the food you purchase is non-GMO. Demand a halt to GMO foods any chance you get. Support mandatory labeling of GMO foods. Buy ORGANIC. Plant a garden

2. CANNED TOMATOES

The Expert: Fredrick vom Saal, PhD, an endocrinologist at the University of Missouri who studies bisphenol-A.

The Situation: The resin linings of tin cans contain bisphenol-A, a synthetic estrogen that has been linked to ailments ranging from reproductive problems to heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Unfortunately, acidity (a prominent characteristic of tomatoes) causes BPA to leach into your food. Studies show that the BPA in most people’s body exceeds the amount that suppresses sperm production or causes chromosomal damage to the eggs of animals. “You can get 50 mcg of BPA per liter out of a tomato can, and that’s a level that is going to impact people, particularly the young,” says vom Saal. “I won’t go near canned tomatoes.”

The Solution: Choose tomatoes in glass bottles (which do not need resin linings), such as the brands Bionaturae and Coluccio. You can also get several types in Tetra Pak boxes, like Trader Joe’s and Pomi.

 3. CORN-FED BEEF

The Expert: Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farms and author of half a dozen books on sustainable farming.

The Situation: Cattle evolved to eat grass, not grains. But farmers today feed their animals corn and soybeans, which fatten up the animals faster for slaughter. More money for cattle farmers (and lower prices at the grocery store) means a lot less nutrition for us. A recent comprehensive study conducted by the USDA and researchers from Clemson University found that compared with corn-fed beef, grass-fed beef is higher in beta-carotene, vitamin E, omega-3s, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), calcium, magnesium, and potassium; lower in inflammatory omega-6s; and lower in saturated fats that have been linked to heart disease. “We need to respect the fact that cows are herbivores, and that does not mean feeding them corn and chicken manure,” says Salatin.

The Solution: Buy grass-fed beef, which can be found at specialty grocers, farmers’ markets, and nationally at Whole Foods. It’s usually labeled because it demands a premium, but if you don’t see it, ask your butcher.

 4. MICROWAVE POPCORN

The Expert: Olga Naidenko, PhD, a senior scientist for the Environmental Working Group.

The Situation: Chemicals, including perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), in the lining of the bag, are part of a class of compounds that may be linked to infertility in humans, according to a recent study from UCLA. In animal testing, the chemicals cause liver, testicular, and pancreatic cancer. Studies show that microwaving causes the chemicals to vaporize—and migrate into your popcorn. “They stay in your body for years and accumulate there,” says Naidenko, which is why researchers worry that levels in humans could approach the amounts causing cancers in laboratory animals. DuPont and other manufacturers have promised to phase out PFOA by 2015 under a voluntary EPA plan, but millions of bags of popcorn will be sold between now and then.

The Solution: Pop natural kernels the old-fashioned way: in a skillet. For flavorings, you can add real butter or dried seasonings, such as dillweed, vegetable flakes, or soup mix.

5. FARMED SALMON

The Expert: David Carpenter, MD, director of the Institute for Health and the Environment at the University at Albany and publisher of a major study in the journal Science on contamination in fish.

The Situation: Nature didn’t intend for salmon to be crammed into pens and fed soy, poultry litter, and hydrolyzed chicken feathers. As a result, farmed salmon is lower in vitamin D and higher in contaminants, including carcinogens, PCBs, brominated flame retardants, and pesticides such as dioxin and DDT. According to Carpenter, the most contaminated fish come from Northern Europe, which can be found on American menus. “You can only safely eat one of these salmon dinners every 5 months without increasing your risk of cancer,” says Carpenter, whose 2004 fish contamination study got broad media attention. “It’s that bad.” Preliminary science has also linked DDT to diabetes and obesity, but some nutritionists believe the benefits of omega-3s outweigh the risks. There is also concern about the high level of antibiotics and pesticides used to treat these fish. When you eat farmed salmon, you get dosed with the same drugs and chemicals.

The Solution: Switch to wild-caught Alaska salmon. If the package says fresh Atlantic, it’s farmed. There are no commercial fisheries left for wild Atlantic salmon.

6. MILK PRODUCED WITH ARTIFICIAL HORMONES

The Expert: Rick North, project director of the Campaign for Safe Food at the Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility and former CEO of the Oregon division of the American Cancer Society.

The Situation: Milk producers treat their dairy cattle with recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH or rBST, as it is also known) to boost milk production. But rBGH also increases udder infections and even pus in the milk. It also leads to higher levels of a hormone called insulin-like growth factor in milk. In people, high levels of IGF-1 may contribute to breast, prostate, and colon cancers. “When the government approved rBGH, it was thought that IGF-1 from milk would be broken down in the human digestive tract,” says North. As it turns out, the casein in milk protects most of it, according to several independent studies. “There’s not 100% proof that this is increasing cancer in humans,” admits North. “However, it’s banned in most industrialized countries.”

The Solution: Check labels for rBGH-free, rBST-free, produced without artificial hormones, or organic milk. These phrases indicate rBGH-free products.

7. CONVENTIONAL APPLES

The Expert: Mark Kastel, former executive for agribusiness and co-director of the Cornucopia Institute, a farm-policy research group that supports organic foods

The Situation: If fall fruits held a “most doused in pesticides contest,” apples would win. Why? They are individually grafted (descended from a single tree) so that each variety maintains its distinctive flavor. As such, apples don’t develop resistance to pests and are sprayed frequently. The industry maintains that these residues are not harmful. But Kastel counters that it’s just common sense to minimize exposure by avoiding the most doused produce, like apples. “Farm workers have higher rates of many cancers,” he says. And increasing numbers of studies are starting to link a higher body burden of pesticides (from all sources) with Parkinson’s disease.

The Solution: Buy organic apples. If you can’t afford organic, be sure to wash and peel them first.

If Trees Have Brains (and they do) – The Earth Is At War With Us!

Do trees have brains and talk to each other? They are intelligent, express emotions and make friends, claims a new book.  Read this brief fascinating story from the Daily Mail. Judge for yourself and then read my short story The First Child’s Plan.  I call it fiction but you will understand…..  here is the story from the Daily Mail:

  • Some research claims trees are able to communicate with each other
  • Forester Peter Wohlleben believes they are able to transmit information
  • Scientists are starting to ask whether trees possess intelligence and brains

forrest-google-forreuseThere’s increasing evidence to show that trees are able to communicate with each other. More than that, trees can learn.

If that’s true — and my experience as a forester convinces me it is — then they must be able to store and transmit information.

And scientists are beginning to ask: is it possible that trees possess intelligence, and memories, and emotions? So, to cut to the quick, do trees have brains?

It sounds incredible, but when you discover how trees talk to each other, feel pain, nurture each other, even care for their close relatives and organise themselves into communities, it’s hard to be sceptical.

Read More From The Daily Mail:  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3792036/Do-trees-brains.html

My Comment:  This BASIC concept is frequently found in my “sci-fi” stories; however,  The First Child's Plan 2 800x600 (cover)when you think about what this article discloses, if you can think outside the box, you might begin to wonder, if trees talk why not planets?  Why not solar systems?  Why not Galaxies?  In our egocentric religious dreams of being the center of God’s universe, science to its own myopia and self deception supported the religious myth by defining the intellectual superiority of man over all. Man, who uses scientific justification to destroy the environment out of an illusion of his grand scientific understanding  of all around him and self his self importance. …………….. Read on and then possibly wonder how the Earth might rid itself of a parasite called humanity, The First Child’s Plan. 

 

 

 

How GMOs and Glyphosate Impact Soil Biology

Story at-a-glance

  • Glyphosate shuts down amino acid synthesis, followed by inhibition of protein synthesis necessary for plant growth. When that happens, it makes the plant more susceptible to pathogens in the soil
  • Glyphosate also acts as a mineral chelator, and minerals such as zinc, copper, and manganese act as cofactors in many enzymes. This mineral suppression opens the plant up to disease
  • When minerals are bound to glyphosate in the plant, they will not be available to your body when you eat it. Instead, those minerals will be excreted or stored in your body along with the glyphosate

Who Is Poisoning Your Children With “Food!”

If you don’t know what is killing your family and causing cancer, you as a parent can say you were just ignorant as they bury your child and so you can try to avoid blame.  But, were you ignorant or just to busy to be responsible?

Rachel – Is a heroin addict and knows it. You may be an addict and don’t know it!

Watch this amazing video produced by my newly discovered friend Mitch Barr.

This is an amazing, eye opening, interview about addictive behavior!   As a holistic eye doctor, I have long sought the answer to Rachel’s dilemma.  Which, as I view it, is  how to  best understand any “addictive” behavior problem and overcome it permanently! Food in excess or the miserably toxic quality of fast food restaurants is an addiction, like drugs!  Why?  Because, as Rachel knows, it will kill you but yet you still do it! You “cannot stop“! McDonald’s, Burger King and KFC is betting on it!

Can we avoid or reverse addictions? I am always seeking a method of helping my patients achieve personal growth and change, when I diagnose potentially catastrophic future illnesses during a holistic eye exam.  Via DRI, digital retinal Pills -  Addictionimaging, we can potentially diagnose future disease like: strokes, heart attacks, diabetes and blindness.  I clearly explain their illness and give them information on how to resolve it.  Yet most seem unable to change and prevent disaster.

As Rachel is telling us change is difficult!  She calls it something like the “devil of addiction” talking to her.  I think this choice of words is disabling and destructive!  When you picture a devil, you know you will be in constant battle and you likely believe the that the god like devil is too powerful for you to overcome.

However, I wonder if, in some ways,  people like Rachel are less diseased then most Americans?  What if  the world is full of  “numb” people who don’t get “excited” and involved in anything and as such don’t get addicted, as easily as Rachel does?  Is being “numb” an illness?  In the 50’s, angry mothers marched down the streets of the USA in large numbers protesting a small increase in milk prices! Today Monsanto genetically alters food and spends millions to fight for campaigns to keep you uninformed by denying you information about the toxic foods they have created and the toxic chemicals they use as pesticide. Most of you know about it and yet, you who know, keep poisoning yourself and your children with their “food”.  How does this possibly indicate that Rachel is healthier than you?

What is worse a passion that can lead to addiction or a passionless slow death? Think about this.  What if the deadreason people like Rachel get addicted is because they are “passionate” people that get addicted because of their passion for the depth of their life experience (something you don’t have)?  Artists are filled with “entheos,”  the creative power of emotion. The word entheos derives from Latin meaning filled with God’s Spirit.  Artists get addicted as we all know from the newspapers. Actors and actresses, musicians, fine artists of painting and sculpture seem to wrestle with this dilemma.  They get addicted to drugs and alcohol.  The rest of humanity seems immune or is that they are too passionless to be truly fully alive?  Benjamin Franklin is quoted as saying, “Sadly enough many live to the age of 21 only to be buried at the age of 65.”  This may be what he meant!

Maybe we need to think outside the box and realize that drug addicts may have far greater potential than average people!  Maybe the cure is not to fix the drug addict’s disease but help them focus their “passions”  on great achievements!  Help them substitute their drug addiction (passion) for a passion for good?  Can you picture an addict who is addicted to exercise and good diet … to the extreme?  It may not seem perfect to you but it is a heck of a lot OutSideTheBox01better than drug addiction!  I am not sure I have the answer to drug addiction but I can see how addictive personalities (which may be entheos filled passionate people) might turn away from viewing the “devil” whispering into their ears. Instead they might be seeing God’s love  filling them with an explosive motivation to achieve, in a tireless fashion, as Thomas Edison did when working on creating the light bulb.  Thomas Edison was so “involved” that he slept only for a few hours in a closed roll top desk in his lab so he could work on and on until he succeeded!  Was Thomas Edison an addictive type of personality?  I think so!

What about the “numb” people who are like sheep marching to their slaughter?  I am not sure how to awaken a dead passion in average people!  Yet I am beginning to think that “addicts” have a bit too much in some circumstances.  Perhaps this means that in the right circumstances we can awaken passion and life in the seeming less passionate.  Is this not what men like Tony Robins seek to do?  It is why I studied hypnosis.  I believe this dream is possible; however, I have yet to solve this problem, only define it and even there it could use more work.  Maybe this essay will  provoke some outside the box thinking that might lead to a solution to both problems.

Your Decision, Your Inaction, Your Child, Born Brain Damaged!

200 TIMES MORE AUTISM!

Nearly 40 years ago, when I was still in professional school studying to be an eye doctor, autism affected one in 10,000 children.  In Illinois, at the ICO clinic, we were one of the first institutions to attempt to treat some of its forms, though we called in minimal brain damage (for lack of a better term). Today, autism is estimated to afflict as many as one in 50 autisismchildren.  This is a 200 times increase in the incidence of autism! 

AUTISM AND THE ECONOMIC DANGER OF MISGUIDED CORPORATE POWER:  We now are learning about the causes of autism.  But today, in America,  corporate money rules rather than mind, sanity and soul (we are thusly being called a Plutocracy rather than Democracy).  As a direct result of your loss of empowerment,  companies with billions of dollars of influence, like Monsanto are experimenting on your children (and you), with as much disregard for human life as Dr Joseph Mengele showed for children in the Auschwitz nazi prison camp.  Recent research strongly suggests that we now know what is destroying not only the minds of our new born babies but the health of our nation with horrific diseases , such as Cancer and Alzheimer Disease. More importantly we know what do do about many of these diseases but as a nation of overworked “little”  people we are disorganized and fearful of criticism. We stand petrified in fear of action that might take us slightly off the perfect path to our socially approved spoken goals.  However, a very successful businessman once told me that most of us achieve little in our lives because we live by,  “Ready, Aim, Fire”   when we should live by,  “Ready, Fire, Aim!”   His point was that you should not wait to be a great marksman before going hunting!   Instead, go out to achieve your goal and when you find yourself off target,  correct your aim!   Learning to hit the target is only achieved by missing many times, but getting closer as you go on.  As Thomas Edison said best,  we must fail our way to success.  When he was told he had made 10,000 failures on his way to inventing the light bulb, he said,  “I never had a failure,  I just discovered 9,999 ways not to make a light bulb!”  Ready, Fire, Aim!

WHAT PROOF DO WE HAVE OF PREVENTABLE AUTISM CAUSES?  

  • GAPS:  Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride is a medical doctor with two postgraduate degrees: Master of Medical Sciences in Neurology and Master of Medical Sciences in Human Nutrition. She graduated as a medical doctor in Russia. After practising for five years as a Neurologist and three years as a Neurosurgeon she started a family and moved to the UK, where she got her second postgraduate degree in Human Nutrition.She is well known for developing a concept of GAPS (Gut And Psychology Syndrome), which she described in her book Gut And Psychology Syndrome – Natural Treatment for Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Depression and Schizophrenia, now in its second edition. Thousands of people around the world follow the highly successful GAPS Nutritional Protocol to help themselves and their families. You can learn about GAPS on www.gaps.me
  • VACCINES: A study published in the September 2014 issue of the Journal of Public Health and Epidemiology showed a correlation between autism and three vaccines: MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella), Hepatitis-A vaccines,  Varicella (chickenpox) –NOTE:  A senior CDC scientist, William Thompson, has issued a public statement admitting that he and his colleagues at the CDC falsified at least one study to cover-up a powerful association between the measles mumps rubella (MMR) vaccine and autism in African American males
  • gmo_cornBT Corn may poison your gut bacteria!  Monsanto has created “corn”  which produces toxins to kill of pests.  As it turns out the “pests,”  that cause root rot, have mutated to enjoy eating Monsanto’s now ineffective toxins.  What does this mean for you?  Well, simply put, the bacteria in your gut can mutate just as the bacteria or cells in the corn borers in the soil. The “soil bacteria”  is also that which keeps your gut healthy and if it has been modified by Monsanto (which it now has), it will modify YOU and your CHILDREN!  So this means that when the bacteria or cells that have mutated in the soil get into your body you may well have issues! What did Monsanto do to the corn to produce corn that creates its own pesticide?  Monsanto took the genes out of a bacteria which is an animal (Bacillus thuringiensis )  and inserted it into the cells of corn plants. So now what looks like corn is really part animal part plant!  Never in Earth’s history have animals and plants shared genes in this sense (they usually don’t have sex together!).

???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????IT’S PROFITABLE TO MAKE YOUR DOUBT YOUR INNER VOICE: As the president of a network of eye doctors working to provide better care then the “fast food”  eyecare forced on us by insurance companies,  I sat at a meeting in a nearby state as a guest and member. I was there to learn how they were attempting to solve the same problems we were dealing with.

To my surprise, I watched a paid shill, rise to speak and  deride the people I knew were working to help us, NY eye doctors,  achieve our goals. He spoke lavishly with praise to promote the corporation that wanted to take over the local state’s doctors group. It took me some time to confirm this plant but I did so.  This “credentialled” man was being USED to sway a mass of educated doctors to do what my colleague and I (we talked for an hour on the way home) were certain was a dangerous thing!  They were giving up their idealistic pursuit of health care controlled by doctors to health care influenced by a corporate financial machine.

Why am I telling you this?  If one “credentialled” man can influence a room full of “educated” doctors, think how easily you too have been dragged down the path to hell by TV, Radio and the Internet!  Can you make your own personal decisions and are you willing to risk ridicule for the sake of your children with pressure like this coming at you from every “expert” source? It is no wonder so many of us are paralyzed with inaction, waiting for the Government or  a new Ralph Nader to risk scorn on our behalf!  With information wars it is hard to know the right path to follow.  When the fog is to thick to let your eyes see, the answer as taught by Jesus, and many other great leaders is, Turn Within!  Look in your heart for a path that God has placed in front of your eyes, through the world he has built! Don’t be deluded by the deluge of “facts” dumped on you by the “geniuses!”   You know who these kindly but myopic people serve,  the guy who gives them their pay check!  Don’t rebuild the Earth in the image of some man and his corporate scheme, God already did a good enough job.

Am I asking you to pray? Though I will pray for you!  No, I am asking you to think and believe in your inner voice.  Think for just a moment.  If it took thousands of years for plants and animals to evolve in harmony with the Earth so that we could eat the fruit of the Earth,  the fowl that fly in the air, do you really believe that a scientist in a lab can make a better “plant”  by modifying its genes?  Even if he could, would you not want it tested on “his children”  for at least 20 years till we see what happens to them?  Well they don’t to that to their children!  They want to test it on your children by denying you,  your God Given Right to know what is and what is not GMO (Genetically Modified)!  Monsanto pays millions to see that you have NO CHOICE!  You know, if they fear transparency, they are hiding something!  Can you not turn within and see this?   How about pesticide?   Why are fruits and vegetables that are sprayed with poisons that can kill you, in small quantities,  labeled as “conventional?”   There is nothing conventional about feeding poisons to your children!

Do you need to be a rocket scientist to notice that everyone around you is dying of cancer?  Just turn within and find your heart and ponder two questions:  1)  Is toxic poisons something I want my child to consume?   2)  Do I really think Monsanto knows better than millions of years of evolution or God (depending on your belief).   If you answer NO to these questions then it is time to Stand Up and make a change.

Man with megaphoneForm Your Network And Save  Your Children – Congress is the best paid (off) congress in history. They will not make changes that hurt the guys who line their pockets.  But you can!  We can!   We can make small changes in our communities that they cannot stop, it is still a free land!   All we need to do is band together and close one town to unlabeled GMO food,  no excuses!  Don’t let them tell  you they  cannot tell which is GMO and which is not!  If you don’t know what you are selling then you should be out of business, because we cannot trust you!

How do we start this process?  Just get together with friends and start an organization, educate your community leaders! Speak to businessmen, mothers, service clubs…. just not doctors, they will beat you to death with “Facts”, their knowledge and fear or being judged wrong by their peers.  Turn within, find the truth and join forces with others to ban toxic food from your community! Its a start and it can become a win!

Monsanto NO! GMO YES?

world-according-to-monsanto

 

While Monsanto and others, such as  collaborating factory food farmers,  have banded together to financially support an agenda of using you and your children as experimental lab mice for their GMO “food,” this does not make GMO a bad word or a bad idea.

The value of GMO organisms to humanity might just be proven in the coming years if transparency,  honesty and the Nations of  Earth as a consensus are part of the process.  All of humanity on Earth deserve a voice in what if ANYTHING  GMO is released into our environment and even more so if it is into our food supply!

However, Monstanto and its financial partners need you to experiment on and so they work to deny you access  to information that will let you chose between GMO and NATURAL food. The spend millions to fight your right’s to GMO labeling of food in the marketplace.

They in essence treat you like the humans caged for experimental purposes in Planet Of  The Apes;  they make you into experimental lab rats planet of apes cages 01for their experimental GMO foods!  This is far from transparency.

I am NOT for GMO food, I do not believe it is safe for humans or the environment!  The Monsanto products are especially horrific as the are bred to produce toxins and tolerate toxins (pesticide) that Monsanto manufactures and evidence clearly shows are dangerous to humans and the environment.

On the other hand there can be benefits from GMO organisms that the Earth’s people can agree upon if produced with transparency and careful research and development controls. What kind of products might be of benefit?

Well considering that an estimated 3/4 of a million people die each year from mosquito bites,  wiping oxitecout mosquitoes without poisoning the environment with toxic chemicals might be a good plan!  Or even better, creating GMO mosquitoes that are revolted by the scent of human bodies (less impact on an environment whose complexity we cannot hope to understand, currently. Is anyone working in this direction?  One company is and that is Oxitec however their approach is not without concerns and conflict.

Director of GeneWatch UK, Dr Helen Wallace, said: ‘Local people should be aware that releasing large numbers of GM mosquitoes can pose risks to their health and the environment. ‘They also need to know who will be liable if anything goes wrong. Will Oxitec take responsibility for any problems, or GeneWatch UKjust walk away?’ GeneWatch said changes could be introduced into the wild population which means the Dengue Fever they spread might become more dangerous to humans.  It claims that if the numbers of one type of mosquito – Aedes aegypti – is reduced as result of the release of GM versions, others, such as the Asian Tiger mosquito, which also carry the virus, could come in and thrive. Gene Watch also claims that there is no evidence from experiments conducted to date that human cases of Dengue Fever fall as a result of releasing the GM insects.

The future benefits or tragedies of GMO organisms remains shrouded in mystery.  The complexity involved in predicting the benefits or dangers of releasing GMO organisms into something as complex as our environment is currently beyond the comprehension of humanity.  At first glance Oxitec’s plans to sterilize dangerous mosquitoes seems sensible; however, GeneWatch’s  Helen Wallace’s comments also have merits! Destabilizing one species might enable an even more dangerous species!

This is why transparency is so needed. It will promote open debate and discussion that may provide enough of an answer to make the risks worth the benefits.  This would  especially be true  if unexpected damages an be reversed and those seeking to profit from this technology are willing to take Personal Liability as well as insurance to repay those harmed against unforeseen consequences. Look no further than the environmental damage of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Genetic Literacy Project  is supposed to be such an enlightened institution for GMO education and transparency.  However when you MotherJones Magdig deeper it certainly appears that the huge monetary clout of the big  GMO industry may have its tentacles in the door of integrity and the Genetic Literacy Project may not be transparent at all.  Mother Jones magazine has an interesting story in this regard so here in the story “The Making of an Agribusiness Apologist.

In the recent Superman sci-fi movie,  survivors of Krypton come to Earth intending to terraform Earth into a planet for Krypton’s beings to live on.  In the process, humanity would be obliterated. Releasing a truly dangerous GMO organism into the Earth’s environment has potentially similar dangers and one that we might not be able combat.  There is  a great deal of need for debate and world wide cooperation in the establishment of transparent multinational institution, like the UN was supposed to become, whose sole purpose is to protect our fragile world from the financial greed that lurks behind the potentially great technologies that science has served up.

Water Shortage Or Chicken Shortage?

Every day, it seems, someone is writing an article about the coming water shortage. There is no doubt about a shortage. Just go down to Florida,  where the cost of water has steadily risen. Water is now “manufactured”  from undrinkable ground water to chemically processed water that is now supposedly safe to drink.  If this seems hard to believe think about the proven fact that the Oceans of Earth are contaminated with mercury!

What does water have to do with Chicken?  Simple, chickens are a resource like water.  It is a relatively affordable food that humanity depends upon.  Contaminate it like the ocean and you will have a shortage and possibly famine and hunger. Raising chickenschickens in factory farms creates crowding and contamination.  Chickens in factory farms are fed antibiotics from birth to slaughter. Forget about the fact that it is cruel and inhumane to raise animals in this manner,  but remember that as they use more and more antibiotics it causes the mutation of bacteria that live in chicken.  The new stronger antibiotic resistant bacteria is not just a danger to humans but a danger to chickens and likely fowl in general.  When a super-bacteria gets out of a factory farm,  who will administer antibiotics to the rest of the world’s chickens and other birds that will likely be susceptible?   It has long been a concern that avian flu might spread to humans because of factory farms and end up being the next Black Plague (which killed over 200 million people).  However few people ever raise the question, of what if it killed off most of the worlds fowl?

Even if it did not spread to people, which I believe is less likely,  it would devastate the worlds food supply and in that way be far more deadly! Monsanto knows about this risk and is already working on creating new “GMO Animals.”  They can then sell you an antibiotic resistant thing that “looks like a chicken.”  If this is not the insurance policy you want, then maybe it is time to pay attention to the cruel and inhumane way we are treating livestock!  Over 90% of the US corn is gmo corn!  It is grown to make “Ethanol” used as automotive fuel additives. Ethanol costs far more than it is worth as it is subsidized by your tax dollars and inefficient as fuel.  In other words, it is your taxes given to Monsanto! Just as bad is the fact that converting all the US crop land to Ethanol corn  has moved much of our food production overseas to Mexico and caused one of the sharpest rise in food costs in the history of America. Is there a coming chicken shortage?  It seems likely.

As a sci-fi author I look at science as the bedrock of change and extrapolate the possibilities.  It is easy to say,  “that is just imagination!dick tracy”   However, if you remember Dick Tracy talking  to his wrist radio, then you can see how easy the world can change over night.
