EU rejects French scientist report linking GM corn to cancer

EU rejects French scientist report linking GM corn to cancer | Adverse Health Effects of Genetically Engineered Foods | Scoop.it
The European Food Safety Authority said Thursday it cannot accept an 'inadequate' report by a French scientist on a link between cancer and genetically modified corn.

 

Seralini's team at France's University of Caen found that rats develop tumours when fed US agribusiness giant Monsanto's NK603 corn, or when exposed to one of the company's weedkillers used with it, containing glyphosate.

 

The scientist insisted Thursday he would not give the EFSA any additional information until it first detailed the basis of its own assessment.

 

"It is absolutely scandalous that (EFSA) keeps secret the information on which they based their evaluation" of NK603 and the pesticide, he said.

 

"In any event, we will not give them anything. We will put the information in the public domain when they do," Seralini told AFP.

Farmers See Better Animal Health with Non-GMO Feed, But Scared to Say

Farmers See Better Animal Health with Non-GMO Feed, But Scared to Say | Adverse Health Effects of Genetically Engineered Foods | Scoop.it
Farmers across the nation have reported ill effects in their animals when fed GMO corn and soy feed, but switching to non-GMO feed fixes the problem.
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

This has been known for at least a decade. The first major case I read was from Germany. A farmer/scientist with 70 cows started with 10% GM feed and two years later fed the cows 100% GM feed. All cows died. A toxicological report, post mortem, confirmed that the cows died of toxins from the GM feed.

Animal deaths were also reported from India several years ago. Cattle grazing on cotton plants [post harvest] died of similar symptoms.

Monsanto, the US Government, and the European Elite are on LSD or CRACK to destroy the North American and African people. And many other countries/nations.

 

Horizontal contamination is a proven fact which means all living organisms will be contaminated. No one knows the long term consequences.

Russian Food Security Experts Fight GMO Registrations in Supreme Court

Russian Food Security Experts Fight GMO Registrations in Supreme Court | Adverse Health Effects of Genetically Engineered Foods | Scoop.it
A group of scientists and food security experts have taken the Russian Government resolution, which will allow the registration of GM crops and products containing GMOs from June 1, 2014, to the Supreme Court.

 

On December 16 the group, which includes representatives of non-profit organizations and experts in the field of biological and food security, filed a suit in Russia’s Supreme Court to challenge the adoption of Russian Government Decree 839 of 23 September 2013, regarding the state registration of GMOs.

 

According to the experts, this Government resolution violates the constitutional rights of Russian citizens, including the right to a healthy environment, and food safety information.

Prime Minister: MANMOHAN SINGH
Agriculture Minister: Sharad Pawar
Environment Minister: Veerappa Moiley [VERY OILY MOILEY]

"A flood of genetically modified crops will soon sweep across India if the Environment Minister gets his way. Minister Moily is meant to protect India’s fields and forests, not mollify Monsanto, and it’s up to us to ensure he does!"
"We've done it before! Citizens concerned about health and farmers furious about corporate bullying stopped Monsanto’s GM brinjal. But now Moily has convened a committee that could give the green light to 120 types of transgenic crops. Moily has already made many enemies by agreeing destructive forest and coal projects, so if we act now, we can get him sacked."

Sign now, and share widely.
http://www.avaaz.org/en/india_moily_loc/?bguOhab&v=36086

 

Also note that projects worth Rs 1600 billion were stalled by India's Green Court. These projects are also likely to be approved by ignoring EPA and Green Court decisions. These three insane ministers need to be sacked.

Radioactive Fertilizer: The Primary Cause of Lung Cancer

Radioactive Fertilizer: The Primary Cause of Lung Cancer | Adverse Health Effects of Genetically Engineered Foods | Scoop.it

put together something  we didn't know? Recent research suggests that polonium-210, a radioactive element that is also chemically toxic, is the primary culprit in lung damage.

Arun Shrivastava's insight:

WHAT CAUSES LUNG CANCERS IN SMOKERS? Perhaps several radioactive isotopes found in phosphatic fertilizers.

Has Dr Mercola uncovered something that many of us missed? He says 'the primary sources of exposure is via calcium phosphate fertilizers, used on tobacco fields and food crops respectively and that calcium phosphate contain polonium 210, a lethal radioactive substance. Googled "polonium 210 tobacco." It has been known since the 1960s that the fertilizers used in tobacco farming contain Polonium 210, Uranium 235 and 238 isotopes which are the primary cause of lung cancer. The way modern cigarettes are manufactured, each stick contains about 4000 chemicals of which 10% are classified as toxic.

Could it also be the reason why foods grown with chemical fertilizers are responsible for many degenerative diseases? This article raises huge questions.

Dr Heinemann continued, “The first publication of these results revealed some of the viciousness that can be unleashed on researchers presenting uncomfortable findings. I applaud Environmental Sciences Europe for submitting the work to yet another round of rigorous blind peer review and then bravely standing by the process and the recommendations of its reviewers, especially after witnessing the events surrounding the first publication. “This study has arguably prevailed through the most comprehensive and independent review process to which any scientific study on GMOs has ever been subjected."

Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Broadly agree with the observations. However, majority of journalists ignore two vital adverse impacts on soil health. 1. The herbicide used in conjunction with GM seeds kills living soil, the soil biological matter, and 2. It actually prevents roots from absorbing certain vital nutrients, especially magnesium. This impact on soil has been observed everywhere. In India, only Bt Cotton is allowed to be sown. After cotton harvest farmers usually plant wheat which is a winter crop. The yield of wheat planted on GM cotton field after harvest has consistently shown significant decline ranging from 30 to 35%. Actually, agriculture biotechnology is most unsuitable for India where nearly all farming operations are carried out by labour and not machines. It has also been proven that Bt cotton yield is below or just about comparable to non Bt inorganic or organic cotton, and under both management methods, subsequent crops are not affected.

DELHI GOVERNMENT MUST BAN GMOs

 The new political party that has formed the government has Prashant Bhushan as a key member. A senior Supreme Court advocate who is seeking a ban on GMOs must now legislate an Act to make Delhi GMO free.

The new political party that talks of honesty, transparency and probity in public life must take up the issue of GMOs. Delhi packaged food market is full of GM foods exported from the USA by multinational food firms. Here's my letter to a Senior advocate of the Supreme Court who is handling a Public Interest Litigation petition filed in 2005, Prashant Bhushan. Prashant is now a key member of the new party. Non existent a year ago, it is now in power in Delhi. It is therefore logical that Prashant now legislates against GMOs.

Senior advocate, Supreme Court of India

Aam Aadmi Party, 
Ground Floor, 
A-119, Kaushambi, 
Ghaziabad - 201010

 

Subject: GMOs and testing of all foods in Delhi state

Emailed letter

 

Dear Prashant ji,

 

You have been the counsel in matter of a Public Interest Litigation [PIL] number 260 of 2005 and, as such we, the undersigned, assume that you are fully aware of the dangers of Genetically Modified [GMO] seeds and foods.

 

In this matter you are on record with your arguments in the Supreme Court. We quote one that you made to the media: “We had argued that the field trials and commercial release of GM crops, particularly, Bt brinjal should not be done unless and until proper regulations for ensuring safety aspects are put in place.” http://www.financialexpress.com/news/sc-asks-govt-to-respond-to-safety-conerns-of-gmos/453457/0

 

We draw your attention to the report of the all-party Standing Committee in Parliament that unequivocally recommended to the Government that Genetically Engineered seeds and foods be banned in India. As early as 2001, all samples of food made from soy and corn from Delhi market sent to an accredited laboratory for testing of GM contamination tested positive. Food experts have identified many food products including baby food that are known to be GM contaminated. These well known brands are being sold openly in super stores and neighbourhood grocers without labelling.

 

Are your party and you not concerned with public health and the health of infants, growing children, women and the elderly and farmers rights to seeds? Please consider the following issues which have already been discussed and debated in the Honourable Supreme Court and the Parliament:

(a) Ban all GM seeds and foods in Delhi state,

(b) Establish a testing laboratory in Delhi to test every food being sold in the state, and

(c) Institute severe penalty for offenders for selling poisoned foods that kill.

 

Kerala, Sikkim, Uttarakhand, and Northeastern states have already banned GMOs. We expect you to kindly expedite the process within a week as part of the newly elected government.

 

Kind regards
