Do Seed Companies Control GM Crop Research?: Scientific American

Do Seed Companies Control GM Crop Research?: Scientific American | GMOs | Scoop.it
Scientists must ask corporations for permission before publishing independent research on genetically modified crops.

 

That restriction must end.

 

To purchase genetically modified seeds, a customer must sign an agreement that limits what can be done with them. Agreements are considered necessary to protect a company’s intellectual property, and they justifiably preclude the replication of the genetic enhancements that make the seeds unique.

 

But agritech companies such as Monsanto, Pioneer and Syngenta go further. For a decade their user agreements have explicitly forbidden the use of the seeds for any independent research.

 

Under the threat of litigation, scientists cannot test a seed to explore the different conditions under which it thrives or fails. They cannot compare seeds from one company against those from another company. And perhaps most important, they cannot examine whether the genetically modified crops lead to unintended environmental side effects...

 

Comment:

 

It is stunning how agencies such as the FDA and the European Commission approve genetically modified seeds and plants on the say-so of the companies producing them, without demanding studies on their health effects, while giving the nod to practices as described here by Scientific American - the blocking of any independent research that could conceivably show ho damaging those GM plants are to our health.

 

"Business, business, uber alles" one might be tempted to say...

The Lies You’re Told about Genetically Engineered Foods

The Lies You’re Told about Genetically Engineered Foods | GMOs | Scoop.it

This is straight talk from Dr Mercola. Worth reading this and going through the references.

 

Since 2005, I have been talking about the dangers of GM seeds and crops, particularly food crops. We in Asia consume plenty of raw food or partially cooked food and most of us rely on fresh vegetables. Those of us who are health conscious consume 25% to 50% of our meals comprising of sprouts, salad, partially cooked brinjal, spinach, and stir fried green veggies. GM foods are not for us. No one, not even folks in developed countries who rely on processed foods, should consume these because we don't know the health effects.

Syngenta Charged Over Covering Up Animal Deaths from GM Corn

"A major biotech company known as Syngenta has been criminally charged for denying knowledge that its GM Bt corn actually kills livestock."

 

These facts have been known but note that Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayer, Du Pont, Dow Chemicals are corporations directly involved in weaponization of foods and seeds. They have the backing of many European and the US Governments.

President Obama wishes to introduce the Rockefeller and Gates supported Green Revolution to Africa. He appointed Michael R. Taylor, VP for Public Policy at Monsanto from 1998 to 2001, as Senior Advisor to the Commissioner of the FDA. Taylor, with Rockefeller Foundation funding, authored two papers which tied US agricultural aid to Africa to the implementation of biotechnology, including pesticides and GM seeds.

Scientists discover virus that kills all grades of breast cancer ‘within seven days’ | The Raw Story

Scientists discover virus that kills all grades of breast cancer ‘within seven days’ | The Raw Story | GMOs | Scoop.it

"The virus, known as adeno-associated virus type 2 (AAV2), is naturally occurring and carried by up to 80 percent of humans, but it does not cause any disease."

 

"Researchers learned of its cancer-killing properties in 2005, after Penn State scientists observed it killing cervical cancer cells. They also found that women who carried the AAV2 virus and human papillomavirus (HPV), which causes cervical cancer, had a lower propensity to develop cervical cancer."

 

"When combined in a lab recently, AAV2 eradicated all the breast cancer cells “within seven days,” according to researchers. Better still, it proved capable of wiping out cancer cells at multiple stages, negating the need for differing treatments used today."

What are they waiting for?

 

Is the virus too cheap a cure?

Russia says genetically modified foods are harmful

Russia says genetically modified foods are harmful | GMOs | Scoop.it
Russia has started the annual Days of Defence against Environmental Hazards from the 15th of April to the 5th of June with the announcement of sensational results of an independent work of research.

 

Scientists have proved that Genetically Modified Organisms are harmful for mammals. The researchers discovered that animals that eat GM foodstuffs lose their ability to reproduce.

 

The researchers cannot understand why a programme of destruction is launched when animals take GMO foodstuffs. They say that this can be neutralized only by stopping to eat these foods. Consequently, scientists suggest imposing a ban on the use of GM foods until they are tested for their bio-security.

Why genetically engineered food is dangerous: New report by genetic engineers

Why genetically engineered food is dangerous: New report by genetic engineers | GMOs | Scoop.it

Dr Antoniou said: “GM crops are promoted on the basis of ambitious claims – that they are safe to eat, environmentally beneficial, increase yields, reduce reliance on pesticides, and can help solve world hunger.


“I felt what was needed was a collation of the evidence that addresses the technology from a scientific point of view.


“Research studies show that genetically modified crops have harmful effects on laboratory animals in feeding trials and on the environment during cultivation. They have increased the use of pesticides and have failed to increase yields. Our report concludes that there are safer and more effective alternatives to meeting the world’s food needs.”

Connecticut Governor Malloy proves to be a shill and a perp

The state of Connecticut was on the eve of a historic vote. With 90% of Connecticut residents in favor of GMO labeling, pre-vote tallies indicating that a bi-partisan majority of legislators were in favor of the bill, and an unprecedented awareness of GMOs in CT, everything seemed to be falling into place for CT HB 5117, An Act Concerning Genetically Engineered Food.

Unfortunately, in a devastating turn of events, before the bill had a chance to make it to the floor for debate and a vote, in a closed door meeting, Governor Malloy and his attorneys interfered in the legislative process by removing Section 2 of the bill. Section 2 was the heart of the bill, the section that called for mandatory labeling of all products produced with the process of genetic engineering, leaving HB 5117 meaningless. Governor Malloy chose to put the interests of the monstrous biotech industry in front of the rights of the people of Connecticut.

The Governor has yet to make a statement about his actions, but individuals within the administration indicated that the reason for removing Section 2 from the bill was because of concerns that the bill put CT at risk for being sued based on the outlandish and outdated concept that GMO labeling would be unconstitutional and violate the merchants' right to remain silent and not disclose what products contain GMOs.

While it is yet to be determined whether governor Malloy is afraid of the biotech industry or actually in their pocket, one thing is clear, HB 5117 landed on the Governors desk because it was about to pass the CT House Legislature. Legislators and activists in the Right To Know CT campaign alike are outraged that they were robbed of due process.

DO NOT allow Governor Malloy to get away with this. This can happen in your state too!

Call, write, Facebook, and Twitter Governor Malloy to tell him we know what he did and we are demanding that he put our right to know in front of the interests of the biotech industry.

"Statins are in conflict with one of the most important heart-healthy habits: exercise. The more you exercise while taking statins, the more likely you’ll suffer fatal effects."

 

"One of the best things you can do to decrease the risk of heart disease is exercise. However, for people taking statins, exercise can be dangerous. Statins are known to have cytotoxic effects. Those poisonous effects are multiplied with exercise, and can even lead to death."

"Amid mounting evidence of the dangers genetically modified crops pose to humans, animals, our soils and biodiversity, the corporate-controlled U.S...." says Mary Boland in this exceptionally well written and easy to understand article.

 

I saw the video of Dr Dan Huber and Dr Mercola discussing the process through which glyphosate destroys the living soil, prevents critical nutrient uptake by plants and also destroys the friendly intestinal bacteria in the intestine.

 

An important article, worth downloading and sharing.
