The big players in the GMO and agrochemical industry - Monsanto, Bayer,
Dow, Syngenta, DuPont - are engaging in an extensive public relations,
advertising, lobbying and political campaigning to make sure that
genetically engineered crops (GMOs), and the chemical pesticides they
require, continue to proliferate in the U.S.
To improve their public image, they are attempting to manipulate
everything we see and hear about GMO crops and pesticides in the media
and on TV, the internet and print articles - using propaganda-laden
commercials, "mommy-blogger" articles, farmer endorsements, hired
operatives to change Wikipedia, and front group websites. The biotech
industry is feeling threatened, and their profits hang in the balance.
They are trying to silence the truth!
We now have evidence that the website Snopes.com is being manipulated by the industry too. But first, let's examine what Snopes really is...
A lot of people trust the website Snopes.com and use it to
fact-check things they hear on the internet. For no reason whatsoever,
this mom-and-pop website has been put on a pedestal as if they are the be-all and end-all of truth on the internet.
Facebook recently teamed up
with Snopes, allowing them become an arbitrator of fake news
circulating on their network, essentially elevating them as an
authoritative source of information. I find this development alarming on
While there is some fake news on the internet, this opens up the
possibility that op-ed's and independent journalism will get labeled as
"fake news" if Snopes doesn't agree with an opinion.
Articles can be deemed "false" if Snopes conducts sloppy fact checking. When it comes to the topic of food, it is imperative that everyone understands that this field is rampant with corrupt paid-off scientists and front groups that are working to protect profits of corporations at the expense of our health. You can not always trust information coming from self-proclaimed independent experts, and sources must be vetted extensively.
We all have the ability to use critical thinking skills while
reading news on Facebook or any other online platform - and should
determine for ourselves what is false and what is the truth - instead of
relying on the work of websites like Snopes to do that for us.
Everyone should feel empowered to seek out the truth on their own.
Especially when it comes to our health, we need to be our own advocates
and investigate the food that we are eating.
This is treading too close to the line of censorship and can stifle our freedoms to express our ideas.
Is Snopes a credible and authoritative source of information?
Glyphosate is the main chemical active in several brands of
agricultural and corporate farming herbicides used in the growing
fields; in GMO seed crop cultures; and in what’s called “preharvest
staging” . That’s when the herbicide is sprayed several days [3 to 5
days] prior to crop harvest to “ensure” seed heads mature evenly. Some
consider that process acts as a “desiccant.”
commonly-used herbicide is Roundup® manufactured by Monsanto. In GMO
farming, there is Roundup Ready® seeds, which are totally different from
heirloom or non-GMO seeds. One specific difference is GMO seeds have
patents on them, meaning something has been done to modify the seed from
the parent or original plant strain produced by Nature.
on an Internet talk show, I heard a professor talking about the
non-browning apple, i.e., the apple’s protein is turned off to make the
GMO-non-browning apple not brown when cut and exposed to air, as a
normal apple does.
Well, the question I, as a natural nutritionist,
have is: If the protein (0.3 gram or 1% of Daily Value)  in the GMO
non-browning apple is turned off, does that mean the apple protein is
not functional within that GMO apple as a nutrient for human nutrition?
Has a scientific nutritional analysis proven that factually one way or
the other? Or does science indicate that protein is viable as human
nutrition? Because, if not, that would make a real nutritional
difference in the GMO non-browning apple!
called the “equivalence factor” of GMO phoods really is this, in my
opinion: GMO plants have ‘things’ either inserted or turned off or
modified (allowing patents to be issued making food seeds/plants corporate property subject to legal redress)
from original parent plants, therefore, GMOs are NOT equivalent to the
original plant food, regardless of what GMO science claims!
fact food crop seeds or plants have “patents” should be the prime
exclusionary criterion difference, in my opinion, since historical and
heirloom foods/seeds/plants did not, and do not, have patents! That’s
why the U.S. FDA is out to lunch on GMO phood science, I say, and all
GMO phoods legally must be labeled correctly to comply with truth in
advertising laws in the USA.
Then there’s the inconvenient
‘byproduct’ of corporate farming; it’s glyphosate residues in processed
foods, which has been confirmed scientifically by Food Democracy Now,
The Detox Project and their 29-page report “Glyphosate: UNSAFE ON ANY
Below are two charts showing the glyphosate food
testing results in parts per billion (ppb) FDN had performed, and the
results are nothing short of stunning! Cheerios, which moms routinely
give to toddlers as “finger food,” contain 1,125.3 ppb!
Going down the list we see what I call ‘corporate food sin’ in brand
names like General Mills, Kellogg’s, Nabisco, PepsiCo, Campbell Soup
Company, Little Debbie, Lucy’s, Whole Foods, and Back to Nature! The
really sad news, in my opinion, is brand names originally associated
with previously ‘healthy type food’ before corporate buy outs apparently
have chemically contaminated brands like Annie’s and Kashi because
‘corporate-brands parents’ don’t keep tight control over chemical-free
food processing and production, in my opinion.
Are consumers happy about eating glyphosate? We know glyphosate is in vaccines given to children. See my article about that unbelievable aspect of vaccines.
you are the parent of a child on the Autistic Spectrum or if anyone in
your family has any type of gastrointestinal disorder, I heartily
recommend you talk with you healthcare practitioner about the benefits
of changing to an all-organically-grown diet. Glyphosate is not sprayed
on organically-grown crops, as of now. However, who knows how long
that will last at the rate corporate control freaks are challenging our
rights to clean and healthful food, water and air—the basic necessities

Katehon - Last year, we had a series of mergers in the agribusiness’
GMO-corporations worldwide. This has created an alarming concentration
of corporate power in the hands of basically three corporate groups.
The first one is Bayer AG of Germany, which made a friendly takeover
of Monsanto. The reason for this was that Monsanto became identified in
the public mind as pure evil and everything bad about GMO’s, which was
accurate. This became a burden on the whole GMO project. So, Bayer
stepped in, which has a friendly image of an aspirin, harmless, nice
company, but in fact is the company that invented heroin in the 1880’s
and made gas for the ovens of Auschwitz during WWII. It’s one of the
dirtiest agribusiness companies in the world with a series of homicides
and pesticides that killed off bee colonies and many other things that
are essential to life and to nature.
ChemChina – China State Chemical giant – for some reason took over Swiss Syngenta, which makes weed-killers.
Then, Dow Chemicals and DuPont merged their GMO businesses together.
So, we have three gigantic corporate groups worldwide controlling the
genetically-modified part of the human food chain. As dangerous as the
GMO crops are and the more they sell, it is becoming more and more
obvious that they are the chemicals that by contract must be applied to
those GMO seeds by the corporations. They demand that if you buy roundup
ready soybeans or corn, you must use Monsanto (now Bayer) roundup.
Therefore, this is giving more corporate power to the GMO industry
than ever before and that’s an alarming trend. They are putting pressure
on the bureaucracy in Brussels. One example: there was a massive public
campaign against the renewal of the license of the European Commission
for Glyphosate. Glyphosate is the most widely used weed-killer in the
world. Glyphosate is the main ingredient in Monsanto’s roundup. The
other ingredients are Monsanto’s corporate secret, but the combination
of them is one of the most deadly weed-killers.
The World Health Organization’s body responsible for assessing
genetic dangers made a ruling the last year that Glyphosate was a
probable cancer-causing agent.
The license came up for automatic renewal last year – a 15-year
license. The EU commission for health was prepared to automatically
renew it for 15 years. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), which
is responsible allegedly for the health and safety of European citizens,
recommended approval based on a German study by the German Food Safety
Agency that was simply lifted 100% from studies given by the private
corporation Monsanto! So, the whole chain was corrupt from the beginning
and all the information was rigged. In reality tests have shown that in
minuscule concentrations, lower than in recommended levels in Europe
and in the US, Glyphosate causes kidney disease, liver disease, and
other illnesses that are potentially fatal.
Now, Glyphosate has shown up in urine tests, in urban drinking water,
in gardens, in ground water and so forth. And that gets into the system
of childbearing women, for example, with embryo. It’s all in this!
The EU commission, despite a million petitions – this is a record
setting – and despite recommendations from leading scientists around the
world to not renew the license, made a compromise under huge industry
pressure and renewed it for 18 months. Why did they renew it for that
time? Because at the end of 18 months, they were told by Bayer and
Monsanto that the takeover of those two giant corporations will be
completed and Bayer is going to replace Glyphosate with another, likely
more deadly toxin, but not so well-known as Glyphosate. So, they simply
bought time. And that is just one example.
This agenda of GMO is not about the health and safety; it’s not about
increasing crop yields – that’s a lie that has been proven in repeated
tests in North America and all around the world. Crop yields for
farmers, using GMO plants, may increase slightly for the first 1-2
harvest years, but ultimately decline after 3-4 years. And not only
that! We’ve been promised by Monsanto and other GMO giants that the use
of chemicals will be less, because of these “wonderful” traits that GMO
plants resist. In fact, the weeds become resistant and you have super
weeds, which are 5-6 feet in a height and choke out everything. It’s a
catastrophe. So, farmers end up using added weed killers to kill the
super weeds. This whole mad playing around with the genetic makeup of
nature is a disaster from the beginning.
The real agenda of GMO, which I have documented in great detail in my book “Seeds of Destruction”,
comes from the Rockefeller Foundation. It comes out of the 1920s-1930s
Eugenics movement. The Rockefeller Foundation during the 1930’s, right
up to the outbreak of World War II when it became politically embracing
too, financed the Nazi Eugenics experiments of Kaiser Wilhelm Institute
in Berlin and in Munich. Why did they do this? Their goal was the
elimination of what they called “undesirable eaters”. That is called
After the war, the head of the American Eugenic Society, who was a
good friend of John D. Rockefeller, at the annual conference of the
American Eugenic Society said: “From today, the new name of eugenics is
genetics”. Moreover, if you keep that in mind – genetic engineering, the
Human Genome Project and so forth – they all are scientific frauds.
Russian scientists have proven that the entire Genome Project utterly
disregarded 98% of the scientifically valuable data in favor of 2% that
was completely nonsense and a waste of billions of dollars.
Therefore, they have been obsessed with the idea of how to reduce
human population in a way that would not be so obvious as simply going
out and carrying out mass-sterilization.
Actually, they have done that in Central America together with the
World Health Organization by giving certain vaccines that they cooked-up
to have abortive effects. Therefore, the women of child-bearing age in
Central America were given these vaccines against tetanus. The
organization of the Catholic Church became suspicious because the shots
were given only to women, not to men. And they found that there was
buried in the vaccine an abortive effect that made it impossible for
women to conceive and bear children. This is all covert population
These are the Western patriarchs who believe they are the gods,
sitting on the throne with great dignity, controlling mankind. I think
they are a bunch of fools, but they have this agenda of genetic
manipulation. It’s against nature, it’s chemically unstable. And I have
to congratulate the Russian Federation that they had the courage and the
moral concern for their own population to ban GMO cultivation across
Russia. That was a step forward for mankind. I would hope that Russia
will use its influence to get China to do the similar thing, because
their agriculture is in dire need of some healthy Russian input. But
this step by Russia to make a GMO-free agriculture is a great step for
been an ever increasing number of reports about mysterious radioactive
spikes observed across Europe. However, no official announcement has
been made by any of the EU states, as officials are trying to downplay
these reports as if they were mere allegations.
As it’s been noted by the Independent, Iodine-131 is a man-made radioactive material that is being found in small amounts across the continent. It was found in northern Norway early in January, but has been gradually moving across the rest of Europe ever since.
is among the main elements produced during nuclear fission, when
uranium or plutonium is used as a fuel. High concentration levels of
this radioisotope of iodine have been registered during nuclear tests
and after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.
According to Superstation95,
lately the concentration of Iodine-131 in the air over Nordic countries
has been 4 times higher than normal. Traces of this radionuclide were
found in Finland, Poland, Czech Republic, Germany, France and Spain. It’s
been assumed that there was an accident at one of Europe’s nuclear
plants or some state has been running rogue nuclear tests.
should be noted that back in October 2016 the Institute for Energy
Technology (IFE) reported a Iodine-131 spike due to a technical system
failure. But these days, however, the Norwegian authorities prefer to
remain silent about possible causes.
according to the most recent trends in the reporting of geopolitical
events, Western media has started blaming Russia for carry out some sort
of illegal nuclear activity. Conspiracy theorists have pointed to the
fact that the spread appeared to emanate from northern Norway, where
«Russia may have run a secret nuclear test».
that, a WC-135 Constant Phoenix special purpose aircraft designed to
collect samples from the atmosphere for the purpose of detecting and
identifying nuclear explosions, arrived at the Mildenhall RAF station,
while a number of US reconnaissance planes began patrolling a section of
Russia’s border in the Barents Sea. The Pentagon has also deployed
specialized planes to fly over Europe and establish where the
contamination is coming from but they have mostly failed. Experts say
that changing winds mean that it is not possible to isolate the source,
so they can only speculate that Iodine-131 was most likely released
somewhere near eastern Europe.
No matter how sad it
is for the Russophobe crowd that they didn’t have a chance to blame
Moscow for contaminating Europe with radioactive substances, we are
still trying to establish the possible source of contamination.
During the Cold War
days the United States lost more than a dozen nuclear warheads, and only
a number of those remain in relatively deserted areas. The US
Department of Defense has declassified a list of serious accidents with
nuclear weapons back in 1968, in which there were 13 cases involving
nuclear weapons in the period from 1950 to 1968. The updated list was
declassified in 1980, where there were 32 cases listed. At the same
time, the same paper released by the US Navy in accordance with the
Freedom of Information Act, listed 381 accidents involving nuclear
weapons in the United States in a period between 1965 and 1977. A number
of nuclear devices were lost during sea tests and now they must have
begun to corrode, resulting in the leakage of radioactive material into
the environment. It is worth noting that the power of any individual,
“lost device” is a 1000 times more destructive than that which reduced
the city of Hiroshima to ashes.
For instance, in
January 1966 the so called Palomares incident occurred. It was named
after a small Spanish village over which a US Army B-52G bomber collided
with a KC-135 tanker at an altitude of 30,000 feet. The two planes were
instantly transformed into a roaring ball of fire, with the B-52 having
four hydrogen bombs on board. For some reason, one of them landed
undamaged in a field near the village. Non-nuclear fuse explosions
detonated two more, resulting in a plutonium dust cloud covering the
area around the crash site. According to official data, the accident
resulted in the radioactive contamination of almost 600 acres of soil, a
part of which was used for farming. The remaining bombs landed
somewhere near the coast, but its location remains unknown to this day.
In the fall of 2006, Spain and the United States signed an agreement on
the cleanup of the area around the village.
January 21, 1968, yet another B-52 bomber crashed near the US North
Star Bay base in Greenland. The aircraft was also carrying four atomic
bombs. The aircraft smashed through the ice and sank. Officially, the US
government stated that all atomic bombs were recovered from the seabed.
However, they only managed to find three bombs, while the fourth was
never recovered. This has been exposed by a declassified US government
video, which was obtained by the BBC.
Information Center for Transatlantic Security’s Otfried Nassauer, has
once stated that even officially the United States Department of
Defense, “admitted the loss of 11 atomic bombs.” Recently, a Canadian
diver found an object resembling a nuclear device off the Pacific coast
that could have been lost back in the 1950s, notes The Guardian.
the “lost nuclear bombs” are not the only remnants that the Cold War
left behind. In November 2016, Greenland has raised the question about
the removal of all US facilities from its territory, calling them
“American garbage.” At the same time at one of the facilities – an
abandoned missile site that hasn’t been finished – has 50 thousand
gallons of radioactive waste. These radioactive substances remain lying
in the ice and it’s only a matter of time before they start
contaminating the air and sea flows all heading toward Europe.
European conspiracy theorists and individual politicians would be
better off paying more attention to the “nuclear gifts from the past”
from the United States, and demanding Washington to take responsibility,
rather than blaming it all on their favorite boogeyman – Russia .
