Well informed people like myself, and I’m not ashamed of being informed and intelligent, do get weary talking to deaf ears, especially when the owners of those ears are in a clearly observable danger situation and yet refuse to listen to any warnings. Yet those same deaf to health advice ears listen intently to well financed scare tactics from groups that will benefit financially from the induced fears. After all I saw it on Tele.
Just a couple of fairly recent examples, because to tell the truth I am becoming weary of having stuff I wrote about fifteen or twenty years ago just trickling into the public media as the latest news, though usually at the bottom of a column on page seven, not a headline.
Dr. Puszati worked at the Rowett Research Institute in Aberdeen, Scotland. His research clearly showed that genetically modified (GM) potatoes caused weakened immune systems and abnormal growth in his top of the class healthy lab rats. He published the results. That counted as blowing the whistle on Big Agra so he was dismissed from his job. That happened in 1998.
This sort of thing has been going on for decades while a comatose public gets sicker and sicker and less and less able to read, reason or think independently. Much of the work I have produced over the years has dealt with what I regard as the ace of scumballs in the GM business, Monsanto.
For years now the legal army of companies like Monsanto has successfully silenced their critics. People have been dismissed. Lobbyists have had insane laws passed to benefit the Food Giants. The producers of milk from cows that weren’t given the Bovine Growth Hormone BGH treatment of Monsanto were barred from saying that their cows didn’t have BGH because the Monsanto lawyers managed to spin such beneficial information as deceptive advertising. This wonderful method of increasing the milk yield and producing sick cows and milk with penicillin, pus and other goodies was produced at the time of a milk surplus.
People trying to grow crops without GM treatments have been sued by Monsanto because one plant in a huge crop field was a Monsanto patented item, Knowing the unethical practices of the company there is a definite possibility that Monsanto is putting such plants in other people’s crops in order to start a financially ruinous law suit.
By such trickery and subduing opposition genetically modified organisms have gained a stronghold in taking over the world’s food supply. There is a growing body of evidence, not read or known to the comatose TV addicted public that shows very bad effects on the health of people and animals who are eating GM foods.
But though it has taken over twenty years, maybe due to the death of a generation of nutritionally ignorant physicians, there are now groups of physicians and scientists who are joining forces and advising their patients and the general public to avoid GM foods altogether.
For example the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) is advising physicians to educate their patients and the medical community about the health risks of GM foods which include among other matters “infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system.”
So that is progress in a way. When I began writing health articles physicians didn’t even consider that the food anyone ate was important. The major matter was what drugs they were taking. There were no obligatory nutrition courses in any of the US medical schools not so long ago. And one thing has always been true of the medical profession here…what they weren’t up on they were down on, including all vitamin therapies and acupuncture for example.
Now however there is actually a medical organization that is concerned with the effect of the environment on the human body and life. Twenty years late. Hundreds of thousands of unnecessary deaths ago, but at least it exists.
So what is the basis of the opposition to these now welcome physicians to GM foods. How can these physicians be certain that GM foods are the source of the growing list of health problems facing humanity today? One reason among many is the why and how of making these patented plants.
GM corn and cotton for example, grow with a built-in pesticide called Bt. When the insect bites the plant, the poison kills it. The plant doesn’t need to be sprayed because the built in poison is hundreds of times stronger than the spray. But the spray can be washed off before cooking or processing. The built in Bt cannot be removed from the plant. It’s part of it.
Mentally add a list of GM stuff to include rice, wheat, soy and so on and you can see that people eating products that contain toxins that kill tough insects are probably not doing much for their health.
Monsanto and its cronies are not going to fund research for the effect on human health of its products. After all it’s spread aspartame all over the world despite all the contrary scientific evidence. It is now even found in sugar. But scientific studies have been carried out on animals by non commercially funded institutes.
Remember that lab rats and other animals are the cream of the crop. They are bred to represent the pinnacle of healthy animals, they aren’t emaciated rats caught in farmyards and then experimented on. Here are a few examples that came to the notice of the AAEM.
I have written extensively about the way the soy industry got people to regard soy as a health food by PR, when it is anything but. However the increase in soy crops that resulted has made millions for the industry therefore it must be OK. But now we have GM soy which is even worse than natural soy. When GM soy was fed to female lab rats, most of their babies died within three weeks—compared to a 10% death rate among the control group fed natural soy. When male rats were fed GM soy, their testicles turned from a natural pink to dark blue. Take note boys and girls.
India is a country where the illiterate but wise peasant farmers have figured out the damage that Monsanto products could do to the country. The peasants are burning fields of Monsanto plants to get rid of this danger to the agriculture of the country. The sort of thing that made the peasant farmers angry was that when grazing animals were fed on the remainder of harvested GM cotton plants, ALL of them died including thousands of sheep. Those that grazed on natural cotton plants remained healthy.
Only here would that be considered inconclusive and require thirty years of legal wrangling. The impoverished peasantry knew who the enemy was and burned the crops. And dozens of India farmers commit suicide every day since chemical farming with hybrids whose seeds cannot be collected and used next year, another Monsanto trick, has ruined their soil and bankrupted them.
In the US, farmers have reported that thousands of pigs became sterile after eating GM corn. That of course is considered anecdotal evidence. Nothing must be allowed to prevent the spread of GM food across the world.
The very first inkling of how the chemical industry was going to deal with all such problems occurred directly after WWII, the second war to end all wars you may recall.
The country had thousands of tons of various nitrates in stock as one of the basic ingredients of explosives that were no longer needed in huge quantities.
Some genius suggested that farmers might like to put some nitrates on their fields to increase the crop yield. That was done and yes indeed the crop yield temporarily soared. But the silos that contained the harvested plants began to have problems, like exploding or splitting. The residue flowing from the silos made cows sterile and sometimes had them getting around on their knees.
The chemistry industry were smart enough to realize that the obvious solution was to stop using chemical fertilizers, but that would impact profits. So they came up with a solution that is the basis for all the agricultural problems since…don’t remove the source of the problem, come up with another chemical solution, like medication for the cows. Two sources of revenue. What is called error correction instead of goal correction. And the chemical fertilizers turned the fields to dead pan and ruined the quality of the crops.
German farmers too have complained that GM corn seems to have caused the death of both cows and horses.
There is a human study that shows what GM foods may be doing at the level of our DNA, or the DNA of our friendly intestinal flora. The modified gene in the GM plant that enables it to poison the insect actually transfers to the bacteria in the human intestine. And it is still working. This means that the bacteria in our own intestines could continue to produce the pesticide as long as the bacteria and their offspring survived, which could be for years. Not a great step towards health to have your own body producing a very toxic pesticide in your digestive system. And genetic modification is done using bacteria because of the speed of reproduction.
And other gene modifications may transfer to your gut bacteria, there to be reproduced forever, or as long as you last. Great prospect. VERY important. The media are still trying to persuade you that Michael Jackson is still dead. Where are the priorities?
Some health problems have been escalating in the last few years: obesity, diabetes, autism, and cancer for example. And some researchers lay much of the blame on GM foods and vaccines. To prove this would take decades, if it was possible against the impediments that unlimited funds could put in the way. The diseases themselves may take several years to manifest and the link would not be possible to trace.
But we do know two things for sure. Such problems are increasing beyond the statistics of chance and Big Agra is going to block any evidence that links GM foods to chronic diseases. And what looks like an epidemic of such diseases will continue to grow with Big Pharma getting even more obscenely rich producing drugs to deal with the symptoms.
But that doesn’t mean we should take any chances, or wait for the results to come in. If Big Agra has its way, any damning evidence that links GM foods to chronic diseases will be stifled and the epidemic of immune and degenerative diseases will continue to rise.
So stay away from any food that doesn’t state that it is made from non-GM ingredients. Going organic is only expensive if you don’t take into account the medical bills you won’t be paying.
Foods to steer clear of are soy and corn derivatives, canola oil, GM sugar beets and cottonseed oil. Yes canola oil is made of natural substances, but the natural substances of which it is made are NEVER found together in nature. So Google Non GMO shopping guide. You will see many sites with downloadable material, that if you’ve got this far I know you will be able to read.
It is possible to avoid the foods that will definitely poison you. But you will have to make the effort to find out about them. The Food Giants have zero interest in your health and welfare as they have demonstrated for the last fifty years.
Now that little canter was about matters where the panic that the media ought actually to be fostering is in fact being subdued by the money of Big Agra.
Now we have the opposite situation where the media is being used by Big Pharma to create a panic for their financial gain. You may have heard of the swine flu pandemic that threatens us all unless the gallant soldiers of Big Pharma are allowed to pump us full of probably harmful vaccines.
I and possibly you lived through the nonsense about legionnaire’s disease in which President Ford sought to get brownie points by saying they he was willing to organize matters so that everyone could be vaccinated against the dread disease. Legionnaire's disease was in every headline. Every talk show. Every TV news show. Takes three days to make Americans hysterical about anything by constant exposure with no let up to allow reason or thought to operate. Remember the Twin Towers. Three days pushing the pictures and now we are trillions in debt and involved in two non winnable wars.
The media will be filling up soon with the concept of mandatory vaccination against the deadly swine flu. I know of one person of my acquaintance who was seriously considering not going to a very important conference in Britain because the tabloids there were creating a storm of fear about the swine flu pandemic. Propaganda works even on intelligent people.
Big Pharma unfortunately can also rely on the lousy memory of the channel switching American public. In the legionnaire’s ‘epidemic’ more people became sick from the vaccination than from the disease. And in 1976 when we were first seriously introduced to the idea that giving the flu a special name, swine flu, made it more dangerous, the same thing happened.
The media told us over and over that EVERYONE had to be vaccinated or hundreds of thousands of people would die. This nonsense was believed by the gullible public. ONE person died of swine flu and tens of thousands who were vaccinated became sick. Some of them with a very serious neurological disorder the Guillen Barre Syndrome. Not a coincidence.
The American vaccine company who sent live vaccine to Europe in the hope of starting a pandemic from which they would profit, see the archives‘ In War or Peace Viruses Rule’ 4/17/2009 are among the people pushing the ‘fast track system’ on the swine flu vaccine. This means little or no testing. They have unlimited funds to lobby Congress. Congress always follow the money. They will get their way.
If you get the vaccination you will be just another guinea pig in another ruthless scheme of Big Pharma. If you have already forgotten about the live virus affair note that my article was written the same week it happened. And that was in April this year. Big Pharma can rely on the bad memory of the public.
Here is a list of the ingredients of a flu vaccine and some comments on it for which I am indebted to my chiropractor Dr. Scott of Frankfort whom I have mentioned before.
“What is in a flu vaccine:
• Egg proteins: including avian contaminant viruses
• Gelatin: known to cause allergic reactions and anaphylaxis
• Polysorbate 80: can cause severe allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis
• Formaldehyde: known carcinogen
• Triton X100: a strong detergent
• Sucrose: table sugar
• Resin: known to cause allergic reactions
• Gentamycin: an antibiotic
• Thimersol: Mercury is still in multi-dose vials
What does all this mean? Reason says stay away from the Swine Flu vaccine and any other flu vaccine. There is growing evidence of the harm they cause. If you ever have wondered how well the vaccines work all evidence points to NO reduction in flu deaths NOR in people who catch the flu.
In other words with or without a flu shot the same number of people will die and the same number of people will catch the flu. It’s like the old joke about treatment for a cold…Seven days to recover with treatment, a week without. The choice is whether you put the extra toxins in your body or not.”
At the moment you have that choice. It is possible in the current political climate that such a choice will be taken away from you “For your Protection” as the Fascists always say. Keep alert about the matter. Don’t let trifling video based nonsense about empty headed celebrities divert your attention from your own pro survival activities.

Things to do
There is a humorous but factual video that illustrates just what is in a flu vaccine. If you have 2 ½ minutes watch this video.
