RT: ANTI-GMO ARTICLE IN SCIENCE JOURNAL SUPPRESSED

Ms. M.W. shared this story from R.T, and it more than adequately summarizes what's wrong with not only the whole GMO agenda, but western "corporatized" science - "big science" - altogether:

Ratted out: Scientific journal bows to Monsanto over anti-GMO study

Note the problem here: F. William Engdahl, a respected researcher in the USA and author of numerous books, would never be allowed an op-ed piece in the Washington Post or the New York Times, but he can find a voice on Russia Today.  

Now note the next layer of the problem: the journal in question published a long-term French study of the effects of GMOs on rats, the only long term study thus far conducted:

   In its November, 2012 issue, The Journal of Food and Chemical Toxicology published a paper titled ‘Long term toxicity of a Roundup herbicide and a Roundup-tolerant genetically modified maize’ by Gilles-Eric Séralini and his team of researchers at France’s Caen University. It was a highly important study as it was the first and, astonishingly, still the only long-term study under controlled conditions of possible effects of a diet of GMO Maize treated with Monsanto Roundup herbicide.

Seralini submitted his study results to the respected journal following a rigorous four-month review by scientific peers regarding methodology and such. Seralini’s group tested more than 200 rats of a diet of GMO corn over a period of a full two years at a cost of 3 million euro. The study was done in absolute secrecy to avoid industry pressure.

The publication created an atomic blast rocking the entire edifice of the GMO industry. Pictures of test rats with grotesque cancer tumors appeared in newspapers around the world.

Seralini’s group studied the effect of a Monsanto GMO maize diet on the rats for much longer than Monsanto had done in their study submitted to the EU European Food Safety Authority for approval. The group conducted its study for the full two-year average lifetime instead of just 90 days in the Monsanto study. The long-term span proved critical. The first tumors only appeared four to seven months into the study. In the industry's earlier 90-day study on the same GMO maize Monsanto NK603, signs of toxicity were seen, but were dismissed as “not biologically meaningful” by industry and EFSA alike.

In other words, as we have stated here over and over again, it would seem like common sense to subject GMOs to such long term study, but this was never done; government agents and agencies were bought off, as Dr. Scott de Hart and I indicated in our book Transhumanism: A Grimoire of Alchemical Agendas, in the name of the principle of "substantial equivalence"(a product, not surprisingly, of the first Bush administration), by which the agribusiness industry argued that no such safeguards or testing needed to be conducted since, from a consumption point of view, their product was essentially the same as normal agronomically developed crops. Of course, when it came to patents, royalty and licensing rights, substantial equivalence - and science - went right out the window.

Then came the attempt to damn the French scientists for "faulty methodology":

" On November 28, 2012, only a few weeks after the study was published, EFSA in Brussels issued a press release with the following conclusion: “Serious defects in the design and methodology of a paper by Séralini et al mean it does not meet acceptable scientific standards and there is no need to re-examine [sic!] previous safety evaluations of genetically modified maize NK603.”Per Bergman, who led EFSA’s work, said “EFSA’s analysis has shown that deficiencies in the Séralini et al. paper mean it is of insufficient scientific quality for risk assessment. We believe the completion of this evaluation process has brought clarity to the issue.”

"EFSA argued that Seralini had used the wrong kind of rats, not enough rats and that the statistical analysis was inadequate. By these standards, all toxicity studies on glyphosate and GMOs should be retracted because they used the same type and approximate number of rats as those in the Séralini study."

Engdahl isn't buying it and neither should we: faulty methods or not (and they're not), it was more study and scientific attention than was ever given to GMOs by  any of the agribusiness corporations, and certainly more than was ever given to them by the Food Disaster Administration(formerly known as the Food and Drug Administration).

The bottom line, in a corrupt culture driven by love of money, evil is the only result, and science itself cannot be done, nor even reported, since science is about truth. And truth requires a moral commitment from the scientist, be they atheist, theist, agnostic, or what have you. When that moral commitment is purchased, and the results bought and paid for, science cannot, and does not, advance. Big money only gets thrown at big projects designed to prove the theory with results always interpreted to be in line with its dictats.

This is yet another serious sign that Western culture is in serious trouble folks, for it's not just the GMO issue at stake here, it's science itself. Kuddos to Mr. Engdahl for reminding us of it.

See you on the flip side.

  1. terminally skeptical

    Robert B, thanks for the link to the always theatrical Max Keiser.

    Definitely a keeper, this article. Here’s one way to stop cursing the darkness and light a candle: A constructive way to piss away almost 1.5 hours by way of an interview with Jerry Brunetti

    Ian Fleming knew these boys quite well/Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. The third times it’s enemy action. And as we know, this revolving door has become institutionalized enemy action, as the enemy is building the infrastructure: physical, culturally, and ‘you name it’.
    Also “they” have pruned and cut, sliced & diced the innovation that scientist, engineers, & other professional could & would innovate with those golden hand-cuuffed mickey-mouse copyright laws.
    So those journals that would cross-pollinate creatively worldwide are just another example of “they’re” stove-piping built-in prison complex when it comes to freedom of being free in innovation and creativity of the human beings’ creativity in sharing for the community of all Earth’s living beings. Doing our part in the web of life here on Earth, and then beyond to the stars.

    (Once again I got carried away)

      1. the young turks, the worlds number one news show (there words) is named after the group that genocided the Armenians.

          1. the big bang…lol, ….all those collage wall flower kids on spring break ers every “march” break in Florida.

            A 10 shun you little bold goats.

          1. just watched the fat pos blabbing on about the ethnics of Turkey, Jesus, Satan….he really enjoys being a bozo.
            like you said about the 3rd time.

  3. Might it be a remote coincidence that ex-Monsanto employee/lobbyist Richard Goodman had been recently appointed to the newly created position of associate editor for biotechnology at FCT? Maybe? It’s plain censorship when admittedly no legitimate grounds for retraction were found. An open letter of protest by the Institute of Science in Society (i-sis.org.uk) has been signed by over 500+ scientists and 900+ non-scientists from 63 countries who pledge to boycott the journal’s publisher. Look for more scientists with moral commitment to dump the big corporate-funded ‘luxury journals’ and start using peer-reviewed, open-access journals like (non-profit) PLOS.org.

    If anything positive can be said about Monsanto — “A sordid, mercantilist tale of cover-up, perversion of farming and attacks on apparent scientific documentation” — it is that it has contributed to an increase in organic farming …

        Of course, the article could have said,
        Russia will wait & see what happens in the ongoing GMO experiment with the USA’s guinea pigs, aka, citizens.

  4. The main problem is these companies have always been merchants of death. They always made the major profits during wars so their mind set is always wars against what ever they could to put it bluntly they always making a killing

    1. the active ingredient in prozac is floride….aka rat poison.

      good for teeth, if making them yellow, pitted and cavity ridden is the cape of good hope

  5. GMO, generally mentioned objections, the elites are at it again, you have to think really hard to just even imagine what these fools are up to.
    Personally I would not like to be on this planet in 50 years time, and I wont be by natural means, it’s the coming generation that has to wake up to these playbooks and do something about it, but alas, the path of mankind has cracks in the concrete, or to put it another way, another pothole in the road of life.

  6. GMOs, chemtrails, wifi/smartphone cancers, flouride, Fukishima radiation, fracking, BP killing off the Gulf of Mexico, electrosmog, smart meters, weather wars, DU weapons, Agenda 21, and on and on and on and on.

    Did I leave anything out? If so, add it below..

    At a certain point, you get the point: We are the enemy, and they want us dead.

    This is about the survival of humanity, about good and evil, and it is a war (a ‘cosmic war’). Wake up, people.

      1. Robert,
        Thank you very much for the link, I haven’t seen any of Max in too long and will watch with great pleasure!

        And fight the good fight!

    1. big pharma, corrupt govt, false flags, horrendous education, disgusting entertainment, massive pollution, fraudulent banking and bad science….

      some people dont want too work, and make millions not doing it……and the thing is, they think they are the good guys.

    Like the current TPP & TAFTA trade agreement thats being jammed dowm the fast-track throats of so-called democratic governments, that usurp constitutions anytime “possible” profits are “believed” to have been bedeviled. It’s NAFTA on steroids. That it’s even considered to be on the table, is a bone fide sign of the times, that the asylum is dropping any pretense of sanity. Feeding the Beast, that is consuming us all, is suicidal. GMOs are just part & parcel of this package deal, being stuffed down the throats of all nations, coming soon under auspices the TPP & TAFTA agreements.
    As the saying goes:
    read it(the said agreements) & weep.

    1. Robert Barricklow

      Having read all of Engdahl’s books & specifically his Seeds Of Destruction; there is no doubt that the science of the GMOs was suspect from the get-go. Hardball Tactics were applied to stellar scientists, who went for the science instead of the silver. Those said scientist were tarred & feathered, blackballed, and cast out to far seas of isolation by the Medical Section of Rockefeller Boys.
      The venerable Daffy is quoted as saying in regards to those silvered slivered scientist,
      “Your Despicable!”

  8. It’s less money and more an institutional pathological resistence to different thinking. The models say it can’t be, so it gets no attention. May people over the last 200 years, and more, have done repeated (and repeatable) work in pleomorphism, but the germ theory of medicine/biology/genetics has so come to dominate thinking over that time span, and of course no one in established science wants to admit to contradictions in generally held beliefs.

    Right then of course funding attracts attention, and then more funding, then more attention.

    In my experience, I’ve encountered very very senior US academic biologists who will at least admit to some other possibilities in bioscience, though those admissions are only in passing and never much to do with proposed research.

    And then those 200 years of germ theory is the same time period in which the “universality” of the periodic chart was “established”. Or look at how many times cold fusion has been shown to be readily repeatable over the last 25 years (really the last 75 years), but it’s ignored by much of conventional established “science”. And cold fusion has very clear alchemical implications.

    Am I surprised that a serious study questioning GM maize was ignored/suppressed and then questioned in silly terms? No, but it’s not a new pathology, and it’s not simply about money. Similar positions are held by those who claim the World Trade Towers were turned to dust with bombs, so it ain’t simply an artifact of mainstream mindsets.
