ANOTHER NEW STUDY LINKING GMOS TO HEALTH RISKS

There's yet another new study out, this time in the Journal of Hematology and Thromboembolic Diseases connecting Bt toxins to blood disorders including leukemia and anemia:

New Study Links GMO Food To Leukemia:

"A group of scientists from the Department of Genetics and Morphology, Institute of Biological Sciences, University of Brasilia, Brasilia/DF, Brazil set out to test the purported human and environmental biosafety of GM crops, looking particularly at the role that the Bt toxin found within virtually all GM food crops plays on non-target or non-insect animal species.

"The research was spurred by the Brazilian Collegiate Board of Directors of the National Sanitary Surveillance Agency (ANVISA), who advocated in 2005 for evaluations of toxicity and pathogenicity of microbiological control agents such as Bt toxins, given that little is known about their toxicological potential in non-target organisms, including humans."

That last line is what interests me: "...given that little is known about their toxicological potential in non-target organisms, including humans." How many times have we been reassured by DuPonzanto and the agribusiness giants that their GMOs are entirely safe? that "the science is good" and all other such reassurances?  Such assertions in my opinion are off the reservation of common sense, for such assertions would have to be based on controlled observations over several generations.

This has not happened. What has happened is the revolving door between big agribusiness and government regulatory agencies, you know, the ones designed to look out for the public good and health, but that really don't. Instead, they end up protecting the agribusiness and pharmaceutical corporations.  Of course, the pharmaceuticals do this because they've been hit with lawsuit after lawsuit over their wonder drugs, and this affords them a little protection: "See, we fully informed you... you took the pill at your own risk."

Well, wait until the agribusiness giants start getting sued.  Commercials of Thanksgiving dinners may have to end "consult your physician before eating GMO corn; side effects may include infertility, growing a third nipple, gastro-intestinal impaction,  sudden aortic rupture, dyslexia, persistent stuttering, and social dysfunction..."

All joking aside, it is  intriguing that this study comes out of one of the BRICSA nations, in this case, Brazil. As I suggested in a blog a couple of weeks ago, we can expect more and more of such studies from the BRICSA nations as a challenge to the assured results of agribusiness science.  And they will have the teeth to kick the Mon(ster)santos out... expect more, folks, not less.

See you on the flip side.

  1. Leukemia is white blood cells co-opted & mutated during assembly by fungal micotoxins & their DNA. That cancer cells are hybrid cells comprised of both fungal & human DNA functions as a cloaking device to the human immune system, whereby cancerous cells go unrecognized by the immune system. Cancer is an interface in the carbon cycle designed to recyle damaged, defective or compromised cells into compost. There is no such thing as a mutating cell. There are damaged & then “mutated” cells.

  2. Joseph, this is about much more than simply “protecting the agribusiness and pharmaceutical corporations.” This is about the advance of soft genocide & the manufacture of a sickness “inventory.”

    Taking for one’s cue Naomi Klein’s “The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism, the three wicked sisters – Big Pharma, Big Agra & Big Wars, all are addicted to the “products” they purport to treat. Although Sickness “Corporatism” seems more apropo. Smedly Butler writes war is a racket, but war has many faces, some even with a look of benevolence.

      1. All Corporate Entities are spawn of the Beast System, a Master Corporate Entity or Master Pretense that claims to “speak” for God through its Representatives, Agents and/or Priests. The Beast System is psychopathic, 100% self-serving & completely devoid of conscience.

        See Monsanto, Big Pharma, Big Agra etc – all psychopathic magnets for human psychopaths. Want to rise to the “TOP?” To what degree are you a psychopath? Do what degree are you morally compromised? In the Beast System, the most morally compromised of all rise to the “TOP.”
        These are the “Illuminated” or “Fallen” Ones.

        1. “the most morally compromised of all rise to the “TOP.”- exactly!-

    1. The Daily Bell [ http://urlin.it/3c3e0 ] rightly describes Monsanto as a Frankenstein monster that engages in ‘unforgivable mercantilist practices’. It exists only because of patent law protections and a paid-for government, without which it could not legitimately compete in the marketplace. This is obvious from the May 25th worldwide demonstrations, by more than 2 million marchers in 436 cities in 52 countries, opposing GMOs and Mon[ster]santo’s ruthless monopolistic and deceptive practices. It was an amazing display of passion, creativity, and solidarity … RT has one of the best recaps of the global events.

      And … Thomas Sheridan specifically mentions Mon[ster]santo in a recent talk about psychopaths. CEO Hugh Grant falls right into that category for his callous remarks about protesters being ‘elitists’ who want to prevent poor people from having access to cheap GMO food.

  3. we can debate/postlate/regurgitate this topic until the cows come home- it’s been cud for a long time already- otherwise known as “old hat”-

    question is: when will enough people come to their senses and simply refuse to comply with the “system”?- it’s easy: when enough people wake up (but don’t rely on the majority of Americans to do this- they’re too involved in entertainment/DVDs/sports events, although many are awakening but it yet hasn’t become enough- when will the proverbial “100th monkey syndrome” kick in?)-

    but I adhere to the phrase (don’t know coined it but doesn’t matter but it’s the truth) “the minute a new technology is released into the public domain it’s already been there for 40-50 yrs.)-

    so are we to believe GMO foods are something NEW?- no, they’ve already been amongst us for a long time- are any of us becomg heathier and leading longer lives?- no- so why is cancer on the rise?- stupid question-

    oh, it get’s better: just recently according to reports American scientists have been able to clone certain human cells (a 1st in human history!- yeah, right)- my, my, what a new “discovery”-

    but then go to the testimonies of Peter David Beter (still, according to most, an abolute nut-case- sort of like those who discredit May Brussell’s testimonies) who was already stating in the late 70’s/early 80’s that human cloning was already a reality-

    of course, no-one WANTS to believe this- just like one doesn’t WANT to believe that the Nazis had “exotic” warfare weapons-

    I just think people need to open their minds and finally realize there’s a whole other world out there- a world waaay beyond our wildest imaginations- and it “ain’t” a pretty picture- am not trying to be cynical or pessimistic; but realistic-

  4. We live in the time of the god menchein Victor Frankenstein Inc. If you think that there are those among the elite that won’t eat this stuff think again they would most of them are that stupidly arrogant. They have all that money to burn to pay the doctors to keep them breathing and quaking their idiocies till they die. As for the psychopathic eugenic killers they will be dancing and singing they are the last people on Earth the master race.

  5. Of course, this has got to piss-off the Rockefailures, who consider competition the #1 sin.

    In Illinois they illegally seized bees resustant to Monsanto’s Roundup killing all the remaining queens.

    “It’s not nice to foool Monsanto”
    – brand’snew slogan.

    1. Who’s trying to fool who(m)? It’s not nice to fool the public! In a grand display of philanthropy, duplicitous Mon[ster]santo attempts to greenwash itself and pose as a good steward of the environment by funding an insectarium and public propaganda, oops, education center at the St. Louis Zoo. From the insectarium page: “They [insects] may not inherit the earth, but they have their own building now!” … If only research there could come up with a psychopathicide that, after one good spray, would find the hypocrites rolled on their backs with legs up, twitching in their last throes! 😉

  6. This makes me very sad. 70% of South Africas Maize is GMO. My father died from Leukemia:. It came on so suddenly, took him in the space of a year. And there was no history in his family of cancer. He lived a “healthy”life, took his vitamens, ate three meals a day and walked the dog every day. His mother lived to 86, his father to 76. It was either the flu shots he got every winter or the bloody GMO in the food. One of the two!
