THE TRANSHUMANIST SCRAPBOOK….OK, JUNKYARD: HIGH OCTANE ...
The alchemical transhumanist scrapbook seems to be becoming a full-fledged junkyard, so much so, that it's beginning to be difficult to keep up with it all. In fact, so many of you sent so many intriguing articles this past week, that, in reviewing them, I decided the best course of action would simply be to share them.
First up, it now seems that genetically modified salmon are able, now, to interbreed with brown trout:
Study Finds GE Salmon Able to Cross-Breed with Brown Trout
Now, once again, there is evidence from this study that the ever-so-non-vigilant federal agencies have completely dropped the ball on the environmental impact of releasing genetically engineered animals into the human food chain, for these chimeras seem able to outproduce their natural counterparts:
"As a result of this study, the authors “…suggest that interspecific hybridization be explicitly considered when assessing the environmental consequences should transgenic animals escape to nature.”"The study not only found that GE salmon can cross-breed with brown trout, but also that their GE hybrid offspring could outgrow wild salmon, non-GE hybrid offspring, and even GE salmon. The GE hybrids also out-competed wild salmon and GE salmon in simulated stream environments, further stunting the growth of other fish. According to Andrew Kimbrell, executive director of Center for Food Safety, “This study highlights yet another ecological risk of these hazardous genetically engineered fish. The FDA’s [U.S. Food and Drug Administration] attempt to approve these gene altered fish without even analyzing these irreversible impacts on our native salmon and trout populations is unlawful and a gross abuse of their regulatory duties.”
"AquaBounty claims that the company’s process for raising GE fish is safer than traditional aquaculture, yet documents released by the Canadian government show that a new strain of infectious salmon anemia, a deadly fish flu that has been devastating fish stocks around the world, contaminated their Canadian production site. This information was not included in the FDA’s review."

I saw the following report on French TV about a year ago (ok, I know TV is TV- but I still think some behind TV know they’re also at risk)-
this article is just the tip of the iceberg as far as manipulated foods- even here in Germany (and I know following visuell is not very pleasant) but according to French TV Pangasius fish filets (probably other fish types as well) are being bred in water in Vietnam/Cambodia (subsequently shipped to Germany/France, etc. and sold in stores) are bred primarily in female urine to promote fast growth- look, I know this sounds hideous beyond hideousness- tell me about it- but am just relating the info to which I became privy- which is why I eat very little seafood anymore (ok, we all know human urine is a disinfectant but…ohh, forget it)-
then we have GMOs- and there’s not a plan out there to irradicate most of us?-
I’m not being paranoid- just realistic-
The article on organic feeding the world makes sense. After all, all growing used to be organic before Big Agri-business.
Combined with Allan Savory’s methods of proper grazing techniques, we could not only feed the world a healthy diet, we would not need hardly any allopathic medicine, could decentralize food production, return large tracts of desert to useful grazing land, stop cutting down rainforesst to grow soybeans for tofu and cattle feed, and provide work for large numbers of people (perhaps even reformed politicins!).
I have to disagree with the part of the article which advocated farmed fish, however. Farmed fish are extremely poor in health (farmed slamon have pale gray flesh which has to be dyed red to be sold) and nutritional content -being fed mostly GM soy beans – fishes natural food . . . .
Get rid of all the phony crap in the supermarket in favor of real food, and we could probably feed 9 or 10 billion a healthy diet, at least until a catastrophe happened and we discovered we had no reserve capability in our land use.
Certainly would be better than they way things are today.
These gangs of Victor Frankenstein’s intend to turn those that survive this horror into Borgs along with themselves in order to transcend biological life. Their stupidity knows no limits their SETI program search for these AI’s to communicate with idiots.
There are too many GMPs (genetically modified politicians)…
The backlash will build in strength, as the truth burns through the lies of the corporate paid-for-science facades. Nature has been tested through countless millenia; whereas, the faux science is breaking down at once. The fabric of life is a delicate balance. This ad hoc monopolitistic science-for-profit approach; especially, when “tested” live, is pure insanity. Monetize/Securitize at any cost. Humanity’s survival isn’t the bottom line. It’s an externality cost of doing business. A crony capitalist/style of 1% at the expense of all humanity.
Another sad day in hell:
China approves three new GMO seed varieties for import.
“High correlation between GM soybean and cancer: expert”
according to studies by “the soybean association of NE Heilongjiang Province” in China.
“that people relying on GM soybean oil are more susceptible to tumor and infertility. “
