Global Collusion Accelerates with Monsanto’s Agrichemicals and Pesticide-dependent GMO Food System

Agrichemical pesticide Glyphosate (active ingredient in Roundup) is likely the most abused chemical in the world, and can be found  in the most of the world’s food and water supplies with serious repercussions to families virtually everywhere. Don’t think Monsanto disappeared – it’s hiding behind a new name after being recently purchased by another large global chemical company Bayer.  Thus, the pernicious work of pesticide toxins increasing in food supplies deceptively continues …. only hidden under a new nameplate.  For some of the latest disconcerting health and agricultural updates, please see here and here.

Beyond being the active ingredient in Roundup and many other crop and lawn care products, the toxic pesticide chemical had originally been marketed as biodegradable, but with industry safety testing methods later found to be compromised,  Glyphosate is especially harmful to children, poisoning populations, water supplies, and whole ecosystems around the world…..leaving consumers in the dark about protecting their families as profits have taken priority over family health and safety.  Consumers have little chance to find the truth as previous posts show the virtual hijacking of the US food labeling process.

Take Action Now! Hijacked Federal GMO Food Labeling in Process- Public Comment Ends July 3rd

Hundreds of millions of public and private funds have been spent since the mid-1990’s when GMO foods were first released for human consumption.  Most Americans were unaware at the time that FDA scientists had issued numerous warnings about the need for more robust food safety and risk assessments, which weren’t done prior to release into the US food supply.  Unfortunately politics and profit ultimately prevailed over health safety, and Americans have been very ill-informed about much of the food they are putting on their family dining tables.

Why is our government balking at requiring plain English text for accurate disclosure of food ingredients directly on food package labels in their latest Agriciultural Marketing Service food disclosure proposal?  Why don’t they want to permit the use of “GMO” and “nonGMO” , already widely understood and in common use on food packaging by many companies to inform consumers about the food they are buying in supermarkets?  Since many companies already are providing the consumer this desired information…what is our government hiding when it doesn’t want us to read plain English text on food labels and use QR computer code?  The purity and quality of the food we eat should not be symbolized by a contrived “smiley BE-faced symbol” as some in government have proposed, especially when it potentially covers up toxic pesticides and other chemicals in such foods. Websites can also be listed on the label for additional manufacturer information as is already common practice.  Consumers should not be required to have and use a smartphone to read QR computer code,  when package text labeling is readily available to everyone in the grocery aisles for health and family-conscientious consumer.

Here’s a summary and Take Action plan courtesy of the Center For Food Safety :      USDA’s Proposed Rule on GMO Food Labeling

“On May 3, 2018, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) released its long-awaited proposed regulations for the mandatory disclosure of foods produced using genetic engineering (GE). These rules will implement the 2016 federal law requiring those GE disclosures, establishing many details on how the disclosures will be implemented. The rules are the final step in a decades-long process of demanding and securing GE food labeling in the United States at the state and now at the federal level. As such, public comment will be extremely important. The importance of comments is even further magnified by the fact that the USDA proposal presents a range of alternatives and makes few decisions, leaving uncertainty about the final outcome on critical points. Some of the more important issues along with recommended responses are detailed below. Comments are due July 3, 2018. “

With this proposed new Federal Food Disclosure rule, Genetically Modified (GMO) labeling is in the process of a consumer unfriendly hijacking attempt by political powers/special interest maneuverings — putting USDA officially in the driver’s seat to cover up misaligned FDA food labeling –  all the while exposing consumers to more toxins in supermarket foods and continued escalation of health care costs by denying consumers the right to know what’s in our food. If our government isn’t listening to consumers, at least some companies are more sensitive to what the consumer wants to know about their food by already labeling nonGMO! Who is kidding whom??? Avoiding consumption of toxic substances and family health care costs are significant and timely pressing matters which don’t deserve outsourcing to PR departments and other marketing shenanigans to muddle the information about what is in our food.  Take action now by clicking here to comment on this proposal.

This GE salmon is likely one of the earlier reasons that the labeling laws are being switched from FDA to USDA- Against extraordinary levels of public opposition, the antibiotic-laden GMO salmon application apparently had to be squeezed in as a “New Drug Application”  under the Center for Veterinary Medicine umbrella because there was no animal procedure in place for it under FDA regs at the time.  Also there are quite a few current genetic manipulation technologies like Gene Editing (CRISPR) being vigorously promoted despite continuing problems and risks.

Biological Storm Clouds – GMO Food Consumption Peppered with Increased Human Exposures to Cellular and Wireless Radiation …What is Happening to Americans?

What biologically impactful health changes are occurring right now in our so-called “advanced” wireless age of cellular 5G installations?  Most Americans are in the dark about higher microwave -powered home WiFi systems and commercial WiFi devices which are already wirelessly transmitting 5G blankets of radiation in the United States.  This is happening not only in commercial village and city centers, but also in rural areas eager to “catch-up” where people can also purchase more powerful homeWiFi systems which can unwittingly spread biologically impactful microwave radiation to you and your neighbor’s homes.

These known health impacts of the latest microwave technology are now unregulated by the FCC under the current US Presidential Administration.  The FCC’s commercial-connected technology wisdom banning citizen testimony has also included disallowing testimony on peer-reviewed health impacts in new state and local legislation under the current US government administration.

Regarding safeguarding the health of it’s citizens, the US has fallen further behind many European countries, Russia, China, Iran and others around the world , who have been taking the Precautionary Principle seriously.  Unlike the US, they are more focused on their citizens’ health gleaned from the wisdom of focusing on the biological science impacts of these new technologies.  This pernicious trend is happening at a time when the US has been dramatically falling behind safeguarding its citizenry (when compared to health statistics of  peer-developed nations (OECD), measured by international health organizations such as  the World Health Organization (WHO).

The above YouTube interview of German Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, and other scientists and doctors’ presentations documented on this site, back up known serious biological disruptions and health impacts  (ADHD, cancers, memory failures) of poorly risk-assessed modern food and communications technology.  (Note: This is not to suggest new GMO or electromagnetic radiation (EMR) technology is all bad; rather indicating agreement to the necessary application of the Precautionary Principle, which the US used to follow along with its European peer nations.

Cutting Edge Medical Research Findings on Glyphosate/Roundup Impact

Excellent discussion about your body’s mitochondria and how GMO chemical Glyphosate can affect not only cellular health in your gut, but also your brain, nervous system and more.  Also the importance of bacteria and fungi in soil and in your body’s ability to thrive. A major reason demand for a glyphosate-residue free food label is growing.  Since Glyphosate also has been patented as an antibiotic, it is notable that spraying Glyphosate-based products like Roundup on food crops also results in additional antibiotic load consumed from glyphosate-laden food consumed by both humans and animals.

European Political Shenanigans, Instead of Legitimate Science Driving EU GMO Corn Approval

Claire Robinson updated this recent sickening GMO corn story:

“A Monsanto genetically modified (GMO) maize, called MON89034, caused kidney disease and bladder stones in rats in industry tests performed in 2007. Several EU member states, including Germany, Belgium, Austria, and France, independently raised concerns about these results during the EU’s standard three-month regulatory consultation process. But the central GMO regulator of the EU, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), issued a favourable opinion on MON89034 regardless.[1] With the usual lack of agreement from EU member states on whether to authorize the maize, the EU Commission subsequently approved MON89034 for human consumption in 2011.”  To continue reading, click here

New Directions in Philanthropic Funding of Genetic Manipulation Raise Serious Questions of Unknown and Unintended Consequences

Jane Goodall and other scientists are currently warning about “Emerging Ag”, which appears to involve one of a new generation of PR-driven genetic engineering approaches  (CRISPR- Cas9) characterized by scientists around the globe as “potentially dangerous” and lacking sufficient understanding of unintended consequences.  There are signs that “Emerging Ag” may be agenda-driven and backed by PR “science”.  Does the financial power of philanthropic funding entitle these entities to push open the gates of this new gene drive technology to the masses?  With sizable financial support from philanthropic decisionmakers, can people and the planet be protected from unknown adverse impacts raised by scientists,  particularly when such philanthropic decision making lacks adherence to scientific risk protections afforded by the Precautionary Principle to help safeguard global populations from adverse consequences?

“Funding for Emerging Ag first began after the last full meeting of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity, held in Cancún, Mexico in December 2016 which witnessed calls from Southern countries and over 170 international organizations for a UN moratorium on gene drives. Adding to the pressure was a letter titled, “A Call for Conservation with a Conscience: No Place for Gene Drives in Conservation,” signed by 30 environmental leaders, including Jane Goodall. The letter asked for a “halt to all proposals for the use of gene drive technologies, but especially in conservation.”  To read more from Independent Science News, click here
