hm maybe if Monsanto, with its sordid background and all removed itself from the GMO field, they’d be more accepted. Even GMO supporters dont like Monsanto, its background or its tactics.

While GMO have been proven not to be dangerous overall, Monsanto and their prior history and agenda IS in question. Especially since glyphosate is no longer as effective as it once was (for the same reason that bacteria have gained immunity against many antibiotics and we need to get them out of our farms). Even GMO supporters see the dangers of a Monsanto monopoly, and want no part of it. I took this off of Monsanto’s own website (dont they ever read?) while the article is pro GMO it does poke holes in Monsanto’s propaganda that their products need less dangerous pesticides. As a matter of fact, Dow and Monsanto could have used much less dangerous pesticides than one of the two main ingredients of Agent Orange, but they chose to use the one they can make the most money from (patent):

But less than 20 years later, over a dozen weeds have developed resistance to glyphosate, meaning that farmers have to use more of it, as well as other more hazardous chemicals such as 2,4-D, a powerful herbicide linked to reproductive problems and birth defects, says Chuck Benbrook, PhD, a research professor at Washington State University’s Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources. On the basis of 16 years of pesticide data, collected since GMOs were introduced, Benbrook predicts that use of 2,4-D will increase more than fourfold in the next decade, spurred by new GMO crops. “Twenty years from now we will look back and deeply regret the misuse and mismanagement of current-generation GMO technology,” he says.

This is Agent Orange, the same carcinogen that Monsanto, Dow, Bayer, et. al, poisoned Vietnam and our soldiers with. Now they are trying to patent it as their new pesticide- this is the part everyone should be paying attention to

These are also interesting reads- illustrative of what may happen in the future

Some international scientists are challenging the assertion and say many scientific studies show concerns with crops whose DNA has been spliced in ways not seen in nature.

On Tuesday, a group with backing from institutions in Russia, the United States and Europe said it would undertake the longest, largest and most definitive study of GMOs to date to try to settle the debate once and for all.

The $25 million study of 6,000 rats to be fed a GMO corn diet is designed as an independent examination of the health impacts of GMO corn and the herbicide used on it. The research is to be done in Russia and western Europe over two to three years. (factorgmo.com/en/)

“The science on these GMOs is not settled by a long shot,” said Bruce Blumberg, an endocrinology expert at the University of California, Irvine, who sits on the study review board. “Studies that were done by the manufacturers are the main ones showing safety, and those have an inherent conflict of interest.”

he program is implemented by farmers to assess non-GMO product performance compared to the dominant GMO products on their farms. “Buying seed is an investment and we understand our seed products must offer additional returns. Last year, based on 120 replications of farmer-generated data, we found non-GMO hybrids out-yielded GMO hybrids by an average of 4.7 bushels per acre,” says Odle. And he adds, “This is why we see our PlotPak™ program as a critical component of our story. The purpose is to empower farmers and re-engage them in the decision making process.”

So-called “leaders” take notice when you higher investigators to trace their money trail to find out who gave them how much money so you see how the plutocratic system benefited them- and then you publish it all to make sure everyone knows how corrupt they really are. This is the public’s method of maintaining checks and balances on the gov’t…..like Thomas Jefferson once said, “A government that fears the people is democracy, one in which the people fear the government, is tyranny.)

It was ironic when I saw the new Monsanto ad on TV that I went to their site and I found out that even GMO supporters want Monsanto to leave the industry.

This is the commercial, and my responses (as well as those of others) are below it and I also sent you images of a list of politicians under Monsanto’s sway as well as the government finally trying to remove antibiotics from food (because they result in superbug resistance- but the industry is still resisting) and a needless experiment that resulted in the death of hundreds of animals:

BTW about antibiotics and superbugs I ran into this article tonight:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2014/11/06/beyond-antibiotics-a-new-weapon-against-superbugs-shows-promise/

antibiotics alternatives that a new type of treatment had been effective at curing five out of six patients whose skin had been infected with MRSA or methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus — one of the scariest bugs around because it appears to shrug off even the most powerful antibiotics available. The initial trial was small and limited to those with eczema, contact dermatitis and other skin infections but the company said it is beginning clinical trials for other types of infections.

Antibiotics work by getting inside bacteria, but in recent years many bacteria that cause common illnesses such as tuberculosis or salmonella have mutated to have thicker membranes that stop the medicine from getting inside.

The new drug — which the company has dubbed Staphefket — works from the outside by latching on to the outer cell wall of bacteria. It uses an enzyme known as endolysins to degrade the wall and thereby kill the bacteria. Scientists theorize that bacteria will be less able to evolve to protect themselves against this type of attack because endolysins tend to evolve with their hosts. They are also believed to have another advantage over antibiotics: They can be targeted to only kill specific types of bacteria while antibiotics tend to kill a whole spectrum of them — both good and bad for the body.

Micreos said in May that it had tested the drug against 36 strains of bacteria, eight of them MRSA.

The President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology in September issued a long-awaited report on the matter warning that antibiotic resistance threatens to undue all the progress we’ve made in the past century in terms of controlling infectious diseases.

A good argument can be made that, as our population and industrialization keeps increasing, our negative impact on the environment (by the number of other species we’ve caused to become extinct- starting another mass extinction event, climate change and polluting the environment), has caused runaway increases in several conditions.

The following study confirms the one that came from Stanford that linked both autism and ADHD to airborne pollutants, because that’s where the clusters are occurring, and NO not “everyone” in high pollution areas needs to have this for it to be true, there is obviously a genetic component, but the environment is favored 65% to 35% (per the Stanford study), obviously pollution puts those who are closer to getting it than others over the edge.

An interesting study from Columbia University.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2014/11/06/link-found-between-mothers-exposure-to-air-pollution-and-adhd/?wp_login_redirect=0

More than 11 percent of school-age children in the United States have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, a rate markedly higher than a decade ago. Could air pollution be a cause?

A study, published in PLoS One this week and conducted by researchers at Columbia University’s Center for Children’s Environmental Health, of 233 non-smoking pregnant women in New York City found that children exposed to high levels of air pollution during pregnancy were five times more likely to have ADHD by age 9.

The researchers measured levels of a common pollutant called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons or PAHs in maternal and cord blood shortly after delivery and in the children’s urine at age 3 or 5. The team followed the children until 9 years of age and administered two tests which are the standard for diagnosing ADHD. Of the 33 who had high levels of exposure as measured by maternal blood, 13 were diagnosed as having the ADHD hyperactive-implusive subtype, seven the inattentive subtype and 13 both.

……

Scientists have previously linked high exposure to PAHs in the womb with a number of other childhood problems, including developmental delays, reduced IQ and symptoms of anxiety and depression. It has also been linked to cancer.

If the Columbia study is confirmed, it could help solve the mystery of what causes ADHD — whether it’s more genetic or more environmental — which could eventually lead to ways to prevent it.

“Fortunately,” the authors noted, “it is possible to reduce airborne PAH concentrations using currently available pollution controls, greater energy efficiency, the use of alternative energy sources, and regulatory intervention to control polluting sources.”

The untold story of how the administration tried to stand up to big agricultural companies on behalf of independent farmers, and lost.

……

The message seemed to be clear: the highest brass in the Obama administration was listening closely to how America’s independent farmers are pushed around by big companies, and they were no longer going to tolerate it.

….

But today, two years on, almost nothing has changed. Big processing companies remain free to treat independent poultry, cattle, and dairy producers largely as they please. “You had farmer after farmer after farmer telling the same story, basically pleading for help, and absolutely nothing has come of it,” said Craig Watts, a poultry farmer from Fairmont, North Carolina, who drove 512 miles to attend the hearing in Alabama. Staples agreed. “We had really thought something might change.”

A generation ago, it seemed that Americans had solved the problem of monopoly in agriculture. Following the election of President Woodrow Wilson in 1912, the government gradually weakened the plutocrats’ stranglehold over most of America’s agricultural business.

…..

Over the last quarter century, this progress has been reversed. Today, the top four meatpacking companies control 82 percent of the beef market—an unprecedented share of the pie.

I would really like if they would transfer most of the farm subsidies to organic and small farms. That would make organic produce much cheaper and would boost the healthy diet considerably… GMO crops have been shown to be far less nutritious regardless of how you feel about their safety. I feel they are NOT safe to consume and I really am looking forward to GE labels.

The fact is that medication is not needed in a large percentage of kids who have it, and moreover, medication can have a negative impact, including reducing creativity and performance on tests in those with high IQs. Some pediatricians have made the observation that other cultures have a much lower occurrence of ADHD, and that the recent rises here can be explained not just by bad parenting, but as both Columbia and Stanford studies have shown, both autism and ADHD can be linked to pesticides and pollutants taken in by the pregnant mother. Drug companies love to create new markets for their drugs, after all their main desire is to make money, not to help people, and they will bribe doctors and attempt to set up quotas to do it. But just like with not listening to Monsanto or Corn Industry hype for their products, we need to be extremely leery of Pharma’s covert reasons for marketing their drugs. After all, Monsanto is using Agent Orange, we dont want to be giving children the medical version of that- since PAH (which the Columbia study linked to ADHD) is actually in the very medications we give them!

Some international scientists are challenging the assertion and say many scientific studies show concerns with crops whose DNA has been spliced in ways not seen in nature.

On Tuesday, a group with backing from institutions in Russia, the United States and Europe said it would undertake the longest, largest and most definitive study of GMOs to date to try to settle the debate once and for all.

The $25 million study of 6,000 rats to be fed a GMO corn diet is designed as an independent examination of the health impacts of GMO corn and the herbicide used on it. The research is to be done in Russia and western Europe over two to three years. (factorgmo.com/en/)

“The science on these GMOs is not settled by a long shot,” said Bruce Blumberg, an endocrinology expert at the University of California, Irvine, who sits on the study review board. “Studies that were done by the manufacturers are the main ones showing safety, and those have an inherent conflict of interest.”

So-called “leaders” take notice when you higher investigators to trace their money trail to find out who gave them how much money so you see how the plutocratic system benefited them- and then you publish it all to make sure everyone knows how corrupt they really are. This is the public’s method of maintaining checks and balances on the gov’t…..like Thomas Jefferson once said, “A government that fears the people is democracy, one in which the people fear the government, is tyranny.)

It was ironic when I saw the new Monsanto ad on TV that I went to their site and I found out that even GMO supporters want Monsanto to leave the industry.

This is the commercial, and my responses (as well as those of others) are below it and I also sent you images of a list of politicians under Monsanto’s sway as well as the government finally trying to remove antibiotics from food (because they result in superbug resistance- but the industry is still resisting) and a needless experiment that resulted in the death of hundreds of animals:

But less than 20 years later, over a dozen weeds have developed resistance to glyphosate, meaning that farmers have to use more of it, as well as other more hazardous chemicals such as 2,4-D, a powerful herbicide linked to reproductive problems and birth defects, says Chuck Benbrook, PhD, a research professor at Washington State University’s Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources. On the basis of 16 years of pesticide data, collected since GMOs were introduced, Benbrook predicts that use of 2,4-D will increase more than fourfold in the next decade, spurred by new GMO crops. “Twenty years from now we will look back and deeply regret the misuse and mismanagement of current-generation GMO technology,” he says.

This is Agent Orange, the same carcinogen that Monsanto, Dow, Bayer, et. al, poisoned Vietnam and our soldiers with. Now they are trying to patent it as their new pesticide- this is the part everyone should be paying attention to

BTW about antibiotics and superbugs I ran into this article tonight:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2014/11/06/beyond-antibiotics-a-new-weapon-against-superbugs-shows-promise/

antibiotics alternatives that a new type of treatment had been effective at curing five out of six patients whose skin had been infected with MRSA or methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus — one of the scariest bugs around because it appears to shrug off even the most powerful antibiotics available. The initial trial was small and limited to those with eczema, contact dermatitis and other skin infections but the company said it is beginning clinical trials for other types of infections.

Antibiotics work by getting inside bacteria, but in recent years many bacteria that cause common illnesses such as tuberculosis or salmonella have mutated to have thicker membranes that stop the medicine from getting inside.

The new drug — which the company has dubbed Staphefket — works from the outside by latching on to the outer cell wall of bacteria. It uses an enzyme known as endolysins to degrade the wall and thereby kill the bacteria. Scientists theorize that bacteria will be less able to evolve to protect themselves against this type of attack because endolysins tend to evolve with their hosts. They are also believed to have another advantage over antibiotics: They can be targeted to only kill specific types of bacteria while antibiotics tend to kill a whole spectrum of them — both good and bad for the body.

Micreos said in May that it had tested the drug against 36 strains of bacteria, eight of them MRSA.

The President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology in September issued a long-awaited report on the matter warning that antibiotic resistance threatens to undue all the progress we’ve made in the past century in terms of controlling infectious diseases.

A good argument can be made that, as our population and industrialization keeps increasing, our negative impact on the environment (by the number of other species we’ve caused to become extinct- starting another mass extinction event, climate change and polluting the environment), has caused runaway increases in several conditions.

The following study confirms the one that came from Stanford that linked both autism and ADHD to airborne pollutants, because that’s where the clusters are occurring, and NO not “everyone” in high pollution areas needs to have this for it to be true, there is obviously a genetic component, but the environment is favored 65% to 35% (per the Stanford study), obviously pollution puts those who are closer to getting it than others over the edge.

An interesting study from Columbia University.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2014/11/06/link-found-between-mothers-exposure-to-air-pollution-and-adhd/?wp_login_redirect=0

More than 11 percent of school-age children in the United States have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, a rate markedly higher than a decade ago. Could air pollution be a cause?

A study, published in PLoS One this week and conducted by researchers at Columbia University’s Center for Children’s Environmental Health, of 233 non-smoking pregnant women in New York City found that children exposed to high levels of air pollution during pregnancy were five times more likely to have ADHD by age 9.

The researchers measured levels of a common pollutant called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons or PAHs in maternal and cord blood shortly after delivery and in the children’s urine at age 3 or 5. The team followed the children until 9 years of age and administered two tests which are the standard for diagnosing ADHD. Of the 33 who had high levels of exposure as measured by maternal blood, 13 were diagnosed as having the ADHD hyperactive-implusive subtype, seven the inattentive subtype and 13 both.

……

Scientists have previously linked high exposure to PAHs in the womb with a number of other childhood problems, including developmental delays, reduced IQ and symptoms of anxiety and depression. It has also been linked to cancer.

If the Columbia study is confirmed, it could help solve the mystery of what causes ADHD — whether it’s more genetic or more environmental — which could eventually lead to ways to prevent it.

“Fortunately,” the authors noted, “it is possible to reduce airborne PAH concentrations using currently available pollution controls, greater energy efficiency, the use of alternative energy sources, and regulatory intervention to control polluting sources.”

The untold story of how the administration tried to stand up to big agricultural companies on behalf of independent farmers, and lost.

……

The message seemed to be clear: the highest brass in the Obama administration was listening closely to how America’s independent farmers are pushed around by big companies, and they were no longer going to tolerate it.

….

But today, two years on, almost nothing has changed. Big processing companies remain free to treat independent poultry, cattle, and dairy producers largely as they please. “You had farmer after farmer after farmer telling the same story, basically pleading for help, and absolutely nothing has come of it,” said Craig Watts, a poultry farmer from Fairmont, North Carolina, who drove 512 miles to attend the hearing in Alabama. Staples agreed. “We had really thought something might change.”

A generation ago, it seemed that Americans had solved the problem of monopoly in agriculture. Following the election of President Woodrow Wilson in 1912, the government gradually weakened the plutocrats’ stranglehold over most of America’s agricultural business.

…..

Over the last quarter century, this progress has been reversed. Today, the top four meatpacking companies control 82 percent of the beef market—an unprecedented share of the pie.

I would really like if they would transfer most of the farm subsidies to organic and small farms. That would make organic produce much cheaper and would boost the healthy diet considerably… GMO crops have been shown to be far less nutritious regardless of how you feel about their safety. I feel they are NOT safe to consume and I really am looking forward to GE labels.

The fact is that medication is not needed in a large percentage of kids who have it, and moreover, medication can have a negative impact, including reducing creativity and performance on tests in those with high IQs. Some pediatricians have made the observation that other cultures have a much lower occurrence of ADHD, and that the recent rises here can be explained not just by bad parenting, but as both Columbia and Stanford studies have shown, both autism and ADHD can be linked to pesticides and pollutants taken in by the pregnant mother. Drug companies love to create new markets for their drugs, after all their main desire is to make money, not to help people, and they will bribe doctors and attempt to set up quotas to do it. But just like with not listening to Monsanto or Corn Industry hype for their products, we need to be extremely leery of Pharma’s covert reasons for marketing their drugs. After all, Monsanto is using Agent Orange, we dont want to be giving children the medical version of that- since PAH (which the Columbia study linked to ADHD) is actually in the very medications we give them!

But critics of the products say that is not the last word on the issue.

Some international scientists are challenging the assertion and say many scientific studies show concerns with crops whose DNA has been spliced in ways not seen in nature.

On Tuesday, a group with backing from institutions in Russia, the United States and Europe said it would undertake the longest, largest and most definitive study of GMOs to date to try to settle the debate once and for all.

The $25 million study of 6,000 rats to be fed a GMO corn diet is designed as an independent examination of the health impacts of GMO corn and the herbicide used on it. The research is to be done in Russia and western Europe over two to three years. (factorgmo.com/en/)

“The science on these GMOs is not settled by a long shot,” said Bruce Blumberg, an endocrinology expert at the University of California, Irvine, who sits on the study review board. “Studies that were done by the manufacturers are the main ones showing safety, and those have an inherent conflict of interest.”

Doctor’s Note
Make sure to see the next two follow-up videos (can subscribe for free here): Is Monsanto’s Roundup Pesticide Glyphosate Safe? and GMO Soy and Breast Cancer.

What about the other GMO component of farm animal feed, Bt corn? See my last video Are GMOs Safe? The Case of Bt Corn

Why do we subsidize animal feed more than fruits and vegetables? Check out my video Taxpayer Subsidies for Unhealthy Foods.

What happens when food industries self-regulate? See, for example:
