Arun Shrivastava's insight:

13 minute documentary, the scientific trial conducyed by Dr Seralini and his team in France is explained in simple language.

 

Note that the four Genetically Engineered seeds corporations [Mahyco (which is a Monsanto subsidiary), Nath Seeds, JK seeds, etc;] had submitted results of 45 studies in the Supreme Court to prove the biosafety of GM seeds. NOT ONE WAS CARRIED OUT OVER THE LIFE CYCLE OF GUINAE PIGS. The maximum duration was 90 daysp; majority of studies were terminated within 15 to 30 days. The Seralini study was carried out over the entire life cycle of the experimental animals.

 

The results were horrific. Watch the video and then download the transcript in PDF, here: http://www.ogm-alerte-mondiale.net/IMG/pdf/ogm_english_13_tc.pdf

SYNGENTA SUED OVER CATTLE DEATHS FROM GM FEED

Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Finally Syngenta, the Swiss firm, has been charged. A German farmer had used Syngenta's Genetically Engineered corn as feed for his cows. All his 65 cows died of toxicity and a Swiss laboratory had confirmed that the deaths occurred from Bt toxins that were present in the body in stable form.

 

"The charges bring to light just how far large biotechnology companies will go to conceal evidence linking their genetically modified products to serious harm. Monsanto, for example, has even threatened to sue the entire state of Vermont if they attempt to label its genetically modified ingredients. Why are they so afraid of the consumer knowing what they are putting in their mouths?"

 

Look at the picture by the header: In 1913  corn was 100% farmer owned; In 1913 95% corn is corporation owned of which 90% is Genetically Engineered.

US genetically modified wheat stokes fears, Japan cancels tender

* Japan cancels tender to purchase U.S. wheat* Asian consumers jittery about gene-altered food imports* Importers to seek details from U.S. government (Recasts with details, quotes)By Naveen Thukral
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Japan cancels wheat import from the USA. What will be the consequence for growers and traders who did not heed the warning? USDA refused to respect importing countries' senssitivity.

 

The US Government has consistently refused to accept the adverse health effects of genetically engineered foods. These foods kill.

 

Is the US Government sending food shipments to India containing genetically engineered products? Absolutely.

 

Information leaked out from ports shows that Indian port authorities don't have the equipment to test contamination. This is a serious issue.

Breaking News: China Destroys 3 US Shipments of GM Corn

Breaking News: China Destroys 3 US Shipments of GM Corn | GMOs | Scoop.it
In a sudden turn of events, three separate incidents of Chinese authorities identifying and destroying illegally imported GM corn from the United States have been reported.
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Quotes:

"Are these latest incidents a sign that the Chinese government is beginning to take more seriously the health threats associated with the consumption of genetically modified food? According to the GMWatch.org report's primary informant, who for purposes of anonymity goes by the pseudonym "Mr. Li":

 

"[T]he new government's decisive move to destroy the illegal GMOs "progressive, encouraging, and satisfying". He regards it as a sign that it is keeping its promise to work for the people and the nation.
Mr Li said: "The deeply pro-GMO old government would not have made such a thing public. It would have secretly returned the shipments, or in most cases it would not even have inspected shipments that could contain GM ingredients."

 

The Chinese Government has reviewed its safety testing procedures and most likely they will ban all GM grains, and seeds originating from the USA because of their lax and irresponsible safety testing. Recall that about six or seven years ago, a consignment of rice was also seized in Rotterdam and destroyed. Russia has consistently opposed import of any GM food or seed.

 

China's decision to destroy US shipment of GM corn will bolster the global anti-GMO movement.

How GMO Plants Harm Food Production and Your Health

How GMO Plants Harm Food Production and Your Health | GMOs | Scoop.it
Research scientist Dr. Elaine Ingham develops a company called Soil Foodweb Inc., which helps farmers and gardeners to understand the health of their soil.
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

This is a vital discussion that adds to our understanding of the nature of Genetically Engineered seeds and plants.

 

It is vital to view soil health, plant health and human health as a continuum. One can't isolate one to achieve human and environmental health. Modern agriculture science has done just that, and so has modern medicine.

 

My friend Dr Prabhakaran Nair, an eminent scientist, understood this intrinsic relationship and presented his research paper in an international gathering of scientists in France in 1984. He said "Soil is the soul of life" and I have quoted him in my last article here:

 

http://www.globalresearch.ca/india-genetically-modified-seeds-agricultural-productivity-and-political-fraud/5328227

 

Dr Elaine Ingham, formerly of the Oregon University, now with the research group of Rodale Farm [Rodale have done many pioneering studies] actually showed how genetically engineered seeds and plants destroy the living soil.

 

Please read this article and understand the science behind it; and you and I ...and we all must take direct action to prevent the franckenfoods from further destroying our living planet.

Former Pro-GMO Scientist Speaks Out On The Real Dangers of Genetically Engineered Food

Former Pro-GMO Scientist Speaks Out On The Real Dangers of Genetically Engineered Food | GMOs | Scoop.it
Former Pro-GMO Scientist Speaks Out On The Real Dangers of Genetically Engineered Food
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Thierry Vrain says,"The Bt corn   and soya plants that are now everywhere in our environment are   registered as insecticides. But are these insecticidal plants regulated   and have their proteins been tested for safety? Not by the federal   departments in charge of food safety, not in Canada and not in the U.S." NOTE: GM FOODS ARE REGISTERED AS PESTICIDES.

 

Now, last year Dr. Seralini completed his two-year long feeding studies and the findings are terrifying. All animals fed GM foods died of vital organ failure and cancers. The industry fraudsters had normally confined their studies to 90 days; Dr Seralini wanted it done over the life cycle of 760+days. He found that major symptoms of lethal diseases appeared from 120th day onward, that is on completion of 15% of the normal life span.

 

A human can be assumed to live around 80 years; so, the harmful effects of Genetically Engineered foods should appear after about 12th year of ingestion.

 

Now, since 70% of super market foods in the US are genetically engineered, and these foods were introduced in 1993 without biosafety tests, the fear is not unfounded that majority of Americans are very, very sick, especially the poor.

 

As far as India is concerned: PM Man Mohan Singh and Ag-Minister Sharad Pawar want Indians to eat GM foods. Many years ago I had written that the Parliament's canteen should serve only GM foods for five years. If the MPs survive, we have no problem; if they are all dead good riddance for promoting a dangerous technology, essentially forcing upon us foods that are registered as pesticides.

Study reveals GMO corn to be highly toxic — RT USA

Study reveals GMO corn to be highly toxic — RT USA | GMOs | Scoop.it
A leaked study examining genetically-modified corn reveals that the lab-made alternative to organic crops contains a startling level of toxic chemicals.
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

The article is based on the findings of the 2012 Corn Comparison Report by Profit Pro and one of the things that attracted my attention was that Glyphosate chelates mnerals. Consequently, the root uptake of crucial nutrients is immobilised. I had written about this process by which all Genetically Engineered foods are rendered nutrition deficient. AND, simultaneously, poisonous.

Is Genetically Engineered Salmon Safe and Ethical? Corporations Creating Life?

Is Genetically Engineered Salmon Safe and Ethical? Corporations Creating Life? | GMOs | Scoop.it

January 22, 2013 Global Possibilities

There are massively disturbing ethical, environmental, and health concerns that make the introduction of Frankenfish highly controversial...

Frankenfish could be on your dinner plate by the end of the year.

On December 21, at the very end of the last business day before Christmas week, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) quietly released its environmental assessment that found “no significant impact” from the controversial AquaBounty AquaAdvantage transgenic salmon.,,

What is the rationale behind genetically engineered salmon? Why have scientists spliced genes from an eel-like creature called the ocean pout into the genome of the Atlantic salmon? These genes crank out growth hormone year-round, resulting in a fish that grows faster, cutting the time to reach market weight almost in half. This could mean cost savings for fish farmers, leading to higher profits for the salmon farming industry and (they promise) lower prices for consumers.

But there are massively disturbing ethical, environmental, and health concerns that make the introduction of Frankenfish highly controversial... http://www.globalpossibilities.org/is-genetically-engineered-salmon-safe/

Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Some years ago I saw a YouTube discussion on Genetically Engineered salmon where a private firm was advocating genetic engineering of the fish and its advantages. Actually they were interested in profits, nothing else. 

 

The fish grows to three times in weight as compared to the natural salmon in half the time. Salmon's breeding grounds are rivers and salmon eats anything that moves. Did this private company ever conducted a single biosafety test to ensure their engineered salmon's impact on Natural environment and aquatic life? I don't think so.

Impact on Oceans and Wild Salmon !

 

AquaBounty, the company behind the first Frankenfish, insists that their creation poses no threat to wild salmon populations. But research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that a release of just sixty GE salmon into a wild population of 60,000 would lead to the extinction of the wild population in less than 40 fish generations.

TESTBIOTECH%20Cultivation_GE_%20plants_US.pdf

Arun Shrivastava's insight:

This is a good report summarising the various facets of Genetically Engineered seeds and food crops. Its recommendations are practical and implementable. The study was sponsored by Green Party of Germany  

 

Recall that in 1974, in an international conference, top biotech scientists gathered to discuss the long term implication of GE of life forms. They were all brilliant scientists and cared and a decision was taken not to commercialise it until the possible adverse impacts on human and environmental health have been understood properly. In 1979, Dr Ananda Chakraborty developed an oil-eating bacteria and sought patent protection. Eventually the US-Supreme Court granted them patent protection. This was the first time in history that patent was granted on life form. 

 

That judgement paved the way for patenting of seeds. The big chemical multinationals-Monsanto, Bayer, Dow, Syngenta, etc, jumped into patenting seeds. Today, over 95% of biotechnologists work for these criminal corporations and they are the ones who sponsor research projects on new plant varieties or new life forms. The scientists are now colluding with these corporations who have weaponized our food system.

Read how Supreme Court committee says no to GM crops on PardaPhash

 

Arun Shrivastava's insight:

The Technical Expert Committee [TEC] appointed by the Supreme Court of India to tender expert advice on matters regarding planting of genetically engineered [GE] crops has recommended that GE crops should not be allowed at all, given the limited understanding of chronic toxicity.

This is an excellent move.

 

The activists are happy patting each others' back and thumping their chests. This is unfortunate.

 

We all know the nature of biological contamination: it intensifies over time and space. Illegally planted rice and wheat seeds have already contaminated large swathes of land in the USA. Canada can't grow natural canola or soy because all natural seeds are now contaminated.

So, what are the activists and NGOs happy about?

 

Ten years from now, India will not see one GMO-free natural foods.

GMO Protests Aren’t Enough to Slow Monsanto Company (MON) Down - Insider Monkey

GMO Protests Aren’t Enough to Slow Monsanto Company (MON) Down - Insider Monkey | GMOs | Scoop.it
Are the anti-GMO protests really going anywhere? Activist voices against genetically modified organisms might have pitched louder in recent months, but...
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Unfortunately, that is the truth. The world can keep shouting and the activists can go ahead with banners like 'SAY NO TO GMO', the plantings are going on, American farmers are buying the seeds, others are being pressured into buying or a mixed bag of seeds [GM+Hybrids] is being sold to farmers around the world. Given the scale of operations of Monsanto, Syngenta, DuPont, and others, not only in seeds but in genetically modifying fishes and animals, and the way they control the regulators, shouting alone is not going to help. What may help is small lawsuits in districts combined with direct communication with farmers.

GMO corn, which is a MAJOR crop being pushed by Monsanto and is planted on huge acreage in the US, is not safe for animals or humans. 

Re-analyzing Monsanto's studies on safety of GMO corn, French prof. Seralini found that the studies that Monsanto submitted to gain approval for the corn, showed that the results were skewed to show safety when actually they showed serious adverse health effects in the animals studied.

‘Monsanto’ guilty of Chemical Poisoning in France | World Truth.TV

Arun Shrivastava's insight:

This had to happen. Good that it happened in France. The French people should also note that AREVA, the state owned nuclear corporation, is guilty of similar crimes in Africa. They can't continue with double standards.

 

The global demonstration against Monsanto has exposed the US Government and it POTUS, about whom no one knows how got to the White House. He signed the Monsanto Protection Act which means he ignored saner advice and chose to dupe the American people. He does not represent the people's interests in his own country.

 

The world has firmly rejected genetically engineered seeds and foods forcing Monsanto to back down in Europe.

Senate Shoots Down GMO Labeling Bill

Senate Shoots Down GMO Labeling Bill | GMOs | Scoop.it
Senators in Washington D.C. voted against a key GMO labeling amendment to the Farm bill. One that would have allowed states to decide to label GMOs.
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

She doesn’t want to hear about the study that showed GMO-fed rats developed mass tumors and died premature deaths. Senators like her don’t seem to care that research has shown GMO corn to be a contributor to the obesity epidemic. Apparently, studies linking GMO crops to lung damage, cancer, organ damage, and immune suppression aren’t “good enough” for the FDA, so they aren’t “good enough” for lawmakers."

 

But the Standing Committee on Agriculture in the Indian Parliament came out with a 400 page report recommending complete ban of GM crops in India. It was a well researched study and it was approved unanimously by committee members cutting across party lines. And yet this Prime Minister Man Mohan Singh, having failed to push through a bill to protect firms like Monsanto is now on the sly pushing an ordinance through Presidential order. This is bypassing the Parliament as the highest law making body.

 

Given the evidences, the people of India have sound reason to charge Man Mohan Singh, Ag-Minister Sharad Pawar and senior officers in the advisory body for treason.

"The mysterious illness has sickened its victims with flu-like symptoms, including a shortness of breath, fever, and coughing. Of the seven people who were hospitalized with the new disease, two have died,"

 

Reports of mild to severe allergic reactions started coming from all over the world where Genetically Engineered seeds were planted. Reactions like skin eruption and choking were reported almost ten years ago. Indonesian farmer reported of severe allergic reactions. Doctors felt that GE plantings can cause untreatable illnesses.

 

Sheep grazing on harvested cotton fields have died. IN Andhra buffaloes died too. Autopsy showed up death by toxins. A German farmer lost all his 70 cows that were fed GE fodder.

 

Thus, it has been known that Genetically Engineered crops can cause serious health problems. Yet the USDA, USAID and the US Government have been forcing GE seeds for both food and non food crops around the world.

According to a new study, the ‘Cry’ toxins that Monsanto’s GMO crops have been genetically modified to produce are a lot more toxic to mammals than previously thought, primarily to the blood.
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Quote: "The scientists already knew that Bt toxin was very toxic and potentially deadly at levels above 270 milligrams per kilogram (basically ppm), so they instead tested levels ranging from 27mg/kg, 136mg/kg, and 270mg/kg for one to seven days (each of the Cry toxins were separated out and tested individually to maximize accuracy and total info). It was quite clear right off the bat that these Cry toxins were quite hemotoxic even at the lowest level of 27mg/kg administered only one time and one day as they clearly had damaged the blood, particularly in reference to red blood cells. The quantity and size of the erythrocytes (RBCs) were both significantly reduced, as was the overall levels of hemoglobin for which oxygen to attach to." Unquote.

Argentina's Bad Seeds and GMO Crops

Argentina's Bad Seeds and GMO Crops | GMOs | Scoop.it
Argentina's population suffers from the harmful effects of massive herbicide spraying on its genetically engineered soya fields.
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Some years ago Dr. Don Huber had written to the US Government that Genetically Engineered plants have poor nutrient intake because their root system prevents nutrient uptake. Now studies are being carried out to determine the relative nutrition in genetically engineered foods. Just three comparative values as reported by Dr Mercola should terrify you. 

 

Calcium: GMO corn = 14 ppm / Non-GMO corn = 6,130 ppm (437 times more)Magnesium: GMO corn = 2 ppm / Non-GMO corn = 113 ppm (56 times more)Manganese: GMO corn = 2 ppm / Non-GMO corn = 14 ppm (7 times more)

Note that your body needs calcium to keep your bones healthy. Calcium can't be absorbed unless sufficient quantity of magnesium is also available to human body. The availability of nutrition in our food plants depends upon the availability of nutrients in the soil. Glyphosate, the pesticide that is used in combination with Genetically Engineered seeds, destroys soil nutrient buffer and actually prevents plants from taking nutrients whatever is left. 

 

Now, this is a hard evidence that multinational corporations are deliberately poisoning our foods and the natural resource base which ensures food security on the planet. 

 

The long term studies on rats clearly [Seralini study] show how GE foods slowly destroy all vital organs and trigger cancers and vital organ failure. 

This phenomenon was reported by Dr Irina Ermakova many years before the Seralini study came out but the Russian Academy of Sciences silenced Dr. Ermakova.
