THE GMO SCRAPBOOK: ARGENTINE STUDY LINKS GMOs AND CANCER INCREASE

There's an intriguing bit of news that was shared with us by our friend George Ann Hughes of The Byte Show. Argentina's Ministry of Health in Cordoba has concluded a study documenting a dramatic rise in cancer rates in regions of the country where GMO crop raising is pervasive:

Argentina Cancer Deaths Well Above the National Average in Heavily GMO-Planted Areas

In fact, the five-year study indicates that cancer rates in these regions was double the national average:

"Argentinean farmers have increased their levels of herbicide spraying of crops, and the results don’t look good. A huge increase in cancer incidence is being reported in Argentina linked directly to areas of heavy GMO crop engineering and high biotech herbicide use.

"The Ministry of Health in Córdoba, Argentina, reveals in a report that deaths from cancerous tumors are double the national average in areas where genetically engineered crops are grown and agro-chemicals are used."(all emphases in the original)

There's an interesting admission here as well, and that is that, in spite of raising the GMO crud....er...crops, the Argentine farmers have had to increase their spraying of herbicides.

What does this mean?

For one thing, I suspect the timing of the release of this study is itself a hidden part of the story, for Argentine President Fernandez de Kirchner and her government - and indeed her whole country - have, as you know, been under assault from western hedge fund managers demanding payments on Argentine sovereign securities. I also recently blogged about two related stories in this regard: 1) the lawsuit of Mr. George Soros and others against a bank for the recovery of monies owed them, and which Argentina actually deposited in said bank, and 2) Argentina's lawsuit against a Dutch bank implicated in the LIBOR rigging scandal, which affected Argentine sovereign securities, since these were tied to the LIBOR rate! More recently, you'll recall that China's Xi Jinping and Argentina's de Kirchner came to an agreement allowing Chinese-Argentine trade to be conducted in yuan, part of a larger Chinese initiative to help in the development of Argentina's considerable shale oil resources.

So in this context, the timing of the release of the Argentine study could be significant, for it could be yet another indicator that the GMO issue is about to take front and center stage in the geopolitical strategy of the BRICSA bloc, as I have been arguing it would for quite some time, for Argentina's study is in effect saying that they are another victim of the USA's GMO-food imperialism.

See you on the flip side...

  1. Just a follow up on the FOOD MAFIA, and their scorched earth war based theory of “farming,” with an excellent article by Dr. Sircus about the endemic, so-called “side effects” of the MEDICAL MAFIA… Ahhh, the joys of a Malthusian Economy of mutual predation.

    Monopoly Medicine Is A Killer

    1. No doubt about it. Reminds me of raw milk; too healthy a product, becoming illegal, because the Food Mafia will not tolerate competition, especially, in this case, a better more healthier product. Now the food Mafia has become more international in scope and more powerful. Forget about a media, because it to is part of the international syndicate of Mafia Monopolies, being the Media Mafia. All paid by the Money Mafia, back by the Enforceable Violence Mafia. All against any truths that effect their bottom lines of Mafia Syndicate Profits. The bottom lines of the people: healthy mind, bodies, economies, democracies are the enemies of monopoly efficiencies.
      Ebola is another efficient killer of the useless eaters; eaters who were starving, and on the margins of life at best.
      They deserved a humanity, that is now unfortunately, being suppressed under the boots of a growing corporatism/fascism writ large across the globe.
      Ebola, another approved black op signed-off & signatured by the puppet-master syndicates’.

      1. Falsehood always seeks to eliminate truth. This is why real healthy milk is an embarrassment what appears to be, but is not milk.

        As Dr. Kurt Oster, Chief of Cardiology & Chairman of the Department of Medicine at Park City Hospital in Bridgeport, Connecticut, for over 20 years writes, “…Milk has been changed (adulterated) over the years by processing (pasteurization and homogenization) into an unrecognizable physicochemical emulsion which (other than being white) bears little resemblance to the original, natural, and nutritional milk.”
        [Quoted in The Untold Story of Milk, by Ron Schmid, 2007:237]

        1. Yes Elm,

          You turned me onto that superb work. Enjoyed the hell out of it.
          What we get in the industrialized milk is liquid chalk.

          Thanks again for that book suggestion.
          That, and others you’ve mentioned, have been stellar.

          1. Thanks too Elm, it also provided me with a nice piece too the puzzle. Very close to home, coming from an area called the Ottawa valley, big corpus annilated the whole area a century ago. Kraft foods.

  2. The more mineral depleted & sterile the soils, the more defective the produce, and the more herbicides and pesticides will be required to stop insects from recycling it into compost. Cancer too is an interface of the carbon cycle, in that like defective crops, cancer is designed to recycle organic material into usable compost. Like all molds, mushrooms, rusts and yeasts, like Candida albicans, cancer too is a fungus. Minerally depleted soils, result in mineral deficient plants, mineral deficient & weak people, and an increased susceptibility to dis-ease and cancer. Fundamentally, GMO crops are defective crops, and the insects know it. Monsanto style “farming,” or what the naive imagine passes for farming, destroys not only the soil, but beneficial life forms along with it.

    With a Monsanto crop, those who consume GMO’S or defective “foods,” become insect stand-ins. This is the way Monsanto views people, AS insects. One must ask, what ever permitted them the hold such views?
    A large part of the problem derives, from man’s paradoxical pursuit of convenience instead of nutrition. While millions seek to indulge their senses, little attention is paid to substance.

  3. So now the Chinese are going to come in and ruin the environment through their shale oil extracting technologies. technologies that are highly polluting and water guzzling

  4. So they feed people GMO that cause cancer and other abnormalities, then make micro humans to harvest organs from and do lab tests to “save lives”. How oxymoronic is that? What could be the real agenda? Unless they’re trying to create a new breed of slaves by experimenting with the homunculus..

  5. My SWAG at the next move? China will next cut a deal with Argentina for a lot of food and it will have to be non-GMO. This will provide Argentina with a good export market in non-US$$ and more importantly cover for them under guise of “our customers don’t want GMO”.

    Then Argentina will ban GMO crops based on health concerns that their (and Russian/Chinese) research will come up with.

  6. In the late 1990’s I was taken along on a dove hunt to Argentina where we hunted in recently harvested grain fields in northern Argentina. You could smell the Roundup type herbicide in the fields even after harvest, and when I returned home from that trip I was afflicted with this very strange sickness and malaise that I think may very well have been herbicide poisoning. I cannot imagine what it must be like now with the advent of GMO grains that allow a field to be drenched in Roundup because the crop is resistant to it.

  7. GMO’s the ultimate war on life VIVA LA MUETA. Drumming up business for selling more poisons(medicines)to the rubes. Agribusiness death is are only business the sicker you are the more money we make. Have a nice day suckers.

  8. I have an idea which I believe will redeem the tarnished image of Monsanto and put them back in good graces with the American tv watching public (ultimately the only bloc that counts because they are the ones who give their consent which continues to facilitate the oligarchs murder rampage at home and abroad). Why not have ISIS or even a newly created anti-GMO terrorist sect publicly behead a GMO using farmer or even a visiting American Monsanto salesman (preferably a married one with a wife, kids, and a dog). Plaster this gruesome image all over tv and youtube and I’m sure 80% of US citizens will clamor for an invasion of the country where the beheading took place. Monsanto and their stooges in congress could even push for permanent US bases in those countries to “protect” the GMO farmers. Monsanto could even start a media campaign to get Americans to eat more GMO in solidarity against the evil foreign terrorists who hate the liberty which allows Americans to eat poison, not to mention the threat anti-GMO terrorists are to US workers and their jobs in the Big Ag poison food industry.

    Imagine if you will the camera zooming in on a hot, tired, and sweaty American toiling miserably in his make shift, front yard vegetable garden, cursing and swatting flies while picking malformed, blighted vegetables plagued with pests. His wife enters frowning at the pathetic bounty. She speaks: “damn those terrorists who cost you your wonderful American job in export agriculture. Now we have to grow our own food.”

    The husband replies: “Who knew it would be this hard. We really took GMO food and the efficiency of big agriculture for granted.”

    The camera cuts to the next door neighbors enjoying themselves in their backyard. Several adults are gorging themselves on super sized cobs of corn while children toss a tomato the size of a grapefruit. On the barbecue roasts an 800 pound slab of pork.

    Camera cuts back to the bitter housewife: “And now we don’t even have any leisure time.”

    Husband and wife in unison: “Thank you (insert name of terrorist organization here).”

  9. There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile.
    He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.
    He bought a crooked cat which caught a crooked mouse.
    And they all lived together in a crooked little house.

    The above was updated later into “The Wolf Among Us”.
    He becomes a puppeteer who has, among other fingers in many pies, a large stake in the Fabletown government.

    So, again, an updated version in Argentina.
    On a another crooked landscaped controlled by many puppeteers, some going to crooked courts ruled by other crooked men.
    Eating crooked food cooked up by crooked scientist, financialized by crooked financial wizards.

    1. and they had a crooked little book on the lessor of two evils
      which by chosen this crooked peoples views on the best of two evils removed each and every multi culti is faulti chooser
      from the energy of the creator with each and every misstep they made.

      1. Yes, their cafeterias won’t serve the poisons they market to the public troughs. The journalists witnessing this sing praise preceding the mainstream news parades with one hand in a basket of rose petals. Their excuse? Why the system would corrupt ANYONE it did not destroy. Why it’s obvious to the presstitute chorus that the inhuman system destroys men because it simply doesn’t know what to do with them. They have no hope of seeing this country one day liberated and caring for its own people. And even though they feast on organic; they can’t get rid of the garbage, garbage out system that elevates them to the top of the stinking heap. The blameless & baseless; invertebrate maggots. Yet at the end, there shall appear, with terrifying clearness, that immortal warning of old: Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin!
