RT (RUSSIA TODAY) REVEALS STUDY ON GMO CORN

Once again, RT (Russia Today) is running a story that you'll never see on American (and probably Canadian, British, Australian, or New Zealand TV, and we might be hard pressed to find it ins continental European media), and it concerns the nutritional value of GMO corn.

Now here's the story as RT ran it, incidentally, on the same day as the Boston marathon bombing:

Study reveals GMO corn to be highly toxic

And if you're one of those who mistrusts any report coming out of Russia on principle (I'm not, or rather, I am considerably more inclined to mistrust SeeBS, CNoNews, Faux News or PMSNBC than I am Russia Today), here's the original report:

Home » Blog » Stunning Corn Comparison: GMO versus NON GMO

Now, before we get to what I think is the real news here, look at those figures again:

There is virtually no nutritional value to GMO corn, while, on the other hand, monsters at Duponzanto and other GMO agribusiness giants are feeding us:

  1. 60 parts per million (PPM) of chlorides;
  2. 60 PPM of unspecified "chemical content";
  3. and a yummy 200 PPM of formaldehyde; and
  4. 13 PPM of glyphosate.

As the "leaked report" RT is referring to states: "Look at the levels of Formaldehyde and Glyphosate IN the corn! The EPA standards for Glyphosate in water in America is .7ppm. In Europe it is .2 ppm. Tests showed organ damage to animals at .1ppm of Glyphosate in water. This corn has 13 ppm!"

Now, that alone should make anyone angry that none of the lamestream media or any government spokesman ever talks about this. Of course, they talk about GMOs all the time, but only to reassure us (since they're bought and paid for shills of the corporations), that it's all entirely safe. But never, ever, is there any real discussion; even the "real discussions" any more are completely contrived, like the so-called "presidential debates" they inflict upon us every four years.

The real news here is that RT is reporting it, not SeeBS, CNoNews, Faux News, all of them, do not report on the story of GMOs or their opposition at all. It's all an internet conspiracy. It's all for "paranoid people and kooks," and all the "great Americans" calling into credulous talk shows. They don't cover it because (1) they're told not to, (2) they wouldn't know what to say if they did.

It is ironic that increasingly we in Amairicuh have to turn to foreign sources to cover stories on issues of importance that get ignored in the corporate propaganda mills that we call our media.  Five decades ago, the idea of turning to Moscow to report reliably on American issues, rather than to Chet Huntley or Walter Cronkite, would have been laughable.

Just one final thought: Keep it up RT, you're doing a better job on this issue than any American television or newspaper media.

See you on the flip side.

  1. Sure took a long time for that page to load just to read the article! Ya know how long is it going to take before those who harvest these crops and handling the commodities start dropping over? Or have to go to work in NBC gear Just a thought!

    I check the headlines on internet fot social cleansing headlines(mainstream propaganda). Then go to sites like Dr. Farrell’s, Stephen Lendman, Webster Tarpley, Jim Fetzer, Then go to RT, Blacklisted News, Veterans Today ect.
    (Still have to watch Max Keiser Tuesday edition.)

    On http://blacklistednews.com/ they have a couple of realted article(just scroll down)

    1)Monsanto Threatens To Sue Vermont If It Passes Law Labelin Bill

    2)Human Beings Have No Right To Water

    3)Analysis Finds Antibiotic Resistant Superbugs In American Meat

    And thats just the start for another Ruby Tuesday.

      I had lately been wondering* if Earth First! were still active when I ‘happened’ to see this post: Robotic Bees to Pollinate Monsanto Crops
      earthfirstnews.wordpress.com/2013/04/08/robotic-bees-to-pollinate-monsanto-crops/

      (*perfect example of how the ‘medium’ picks up our desires and quickly fulfills them 😉 )

      1. Robert Barricklow

        Back in 1976 I started writing a story of a “top: secret organization based out of the Vatican. They had their “human” assassins, but also a biologically engineered black widow that would track down a “scented” target by the engineered pheromones. The wodow also had an engineered poison. It would fly on web parachutes through the window and follow the scent to deliver its poison.

        I, very much, liked your ‘medium’ analogy Margaret.

        The real problem is that the airwaves are being ursurpted against the people they are suppose to inform. The pressitutes are pure & simple traitors. Keeping my language in line is tough when discussing the lying press.
        They say the market determines what is shown. Remember they lie. They propagandize. The public has NO say. They public are fed bs on chicken feed wages.

        1. Did you finish writing the book? Sounds like a good plot! Interesting about the web parachutes …

          I fully agree about the mainstream media/‘presstitutes’ … I don’t waste my time there; I seek out the alternatives, going where that ‘6th sense’ leads. What ‘the market’ shows is that people are dumping msm. The networks are failing, losing big time and want to be bailed out like zombie banks. Is that why the internet tax rumor has started up again?

          BTW, belated thanks for that link to the LaRouche ‘Cyprus Template’ report, excellent analysis! I found it esp. interesting that LL sees these events being propelled by a subliminal ‘intention’ that preservation of the Empire and its banking system is paramount: sacrificing your money and your life is the price required for the survival of the [vampire] Empire …

          Here’s a bit of fun at the expense of the [British] msm … ‘The Daily Mail Song’ by Dan and Dan. Enjoy 😉

            Your welcome.

            And no, never finished. Had I stuck with the orinal idea…?
            But, I kept changing & getting bigger and bigger ideas/themes. Lost focus.
            And, as they say/stuff happens.

            (Your above youtube didn’t take. Unusual, in that your helping others, like myself, get it right.)

        1. Yes, it’s like watching a tennis match! Here is a disclaimer from the ProfitPro website [ www dot profitproag.com ]:

          The study “2012 Nutritional Analysis – Comparison of GMO Corn versus Non-GMO Corn” was an analysis of corn itself and not the soil. The analysis was conducted by an independent, outsourced, major food company at the request of one of our growers, and the results were then provided to that grower, who, in turn, made available a copy of the analysis to ProfitPro. The food company purchased the corn from the grower at a substantial premium over market because of the quality of his non-GMO corn.

          This information was intended for our customers only.

          ProfitPro did not give permission for any other web site to use or publish the study.

          Additional side-by-side studies will be conducted this coming year.

        2. Yes, ProfitPro did take down the advertisement PDF. It’s funny they stick to their story, even though anyone with a High School education can see the report is of soil, not corn.

          What organic corn would have less than 3% Organic Matter, and only 60 ppm Carbon? lol

  3. The Agri -Poison corporations want to make tons of money while geting rid of as much of us trash as possible. Could the West Fertilizer explosion been a act of sabotage or a way covering up Monsanto crimes.

  4. re monster satan, and west texas: and mr satan has their own foreign legion now too… we are almost at the point where urls need to be changed…

  5. Thanks Patricia. I had been looking for that story.

    Thanks Joseph. Here’s an update the from the Mom’s website which includes an interview w/ farmer Howard Vlieger who addresses the report.

    In Africa:
    South African GM maize contaminates the world
    The African Centre for Biosafety (ACB) is deeply concerned by the news that the South African GMO authorities have permitted over 25,000 tons of GM maize to be exported to Zimbabwe.

    In Vermont:
    Monsanto Threatens to Sue Vermont if Legislators Pass a Bill Requiring GMO Food to Be Labeled
    Vermont legislators are bowing to corporate intimidation and refusing to take a vote on a labeling measure despite thousands of emails and calls from constituents and majority support of ag committee members.

    1. Thanks Margaret. I read and listened to Howard Vieger. I’m very interested in this, and though I try to grow as much of our food as I can, I wonder if the seedlings I buy are already genetically modified.

      I know a place in Melbourne that definitely grows non-GMO seed and I think I’ll be heading there before I start planting next Spring.

      I’ve heard that Aldi won’t sell atlantic salmon that has been modified, and wonder how they go with other food. Does anyone here know?

      1. I just answered my own question. After a long wait I finally got on to a perso” at Aldi HQ. When I asked if they allowed GMO foods, she replied adamantly that no, nothing was GMO in their shops. I have noticed that they are the only large food outlet that has gone with the “Made or Manufactured in Australia” logo of the green kangaroo.

        (So I guess we know we aren’t getting horsemeat in our hamburgers!)

        So… a good way to fight Monsanto might be to start buying our food there!

        1. Thanks for reminding me of ALDI’S.

          (I didn’t know they were in foreign countries — I guess not foreign to you, ha, ha.) I use to go there when I lived in Chicago. Saved 20 to 30 dollars a month. Hey -it’s money right? I didn’t know they had one in the Boston area until I looked looked them up to find out. Yes, we have small community gardens in Boston but I like the dog-parks better!

          Yes. Aldi’s is like a ‘ghetto’ store but I like the prices on their staples. Here in boston a store named Market Basket worries Wal-mart and others. It’s so ‘packed’ on week-ends and the first of the month one thinks —another KATRINA IS GOING ON! Unbelieveable mobs in that store (the very wide aisles just means you have to climb over people—not for me!)

          1. Aldis is not that bad over here! They get a lot of people in, but it’s all pretty orderly… I’m not into climbing over people either!

    1. That “6th sense” that has been discussed on this forum still has me wondering just how the fertilizer plant blew up. I’d think a lawsuit against Monsanto would be a very dangerous thing to do.
