ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION AGENCY CAVES TO IG FARBENSANTO… AGAIN
Well, the mandarins at the Environmental Pollution Agency have done it again, ensuring that your food supply will be contaminated with the very latest and best in GMO research, according to this article shared by Mr. O.S.:
The culprit in this case is "RNA interference technology." Now, I have to go back several years, when I first started blogging about GMOs, and raised the possibility that genetically modified food might (1) survive the digestive system and (2) enter the consuming organism - that's us, folks - and then cause or create genetic modifications in the human population itself. I was, of course, roundly and angrily denounced, and the denunciations actually at one point made me sound like I was saying that if you eat a steady diet of hamburgers, or bacon lettuce and tomato sandwiches, your children might turn into cows, pigs, or tomatoes. It was about that bad, never mind that it wasn't the point I was trying to make.
Additionally, I also have pointed out, repeatedly, that which other researchers have pointed out: GMO companies limit extensive intergenerational testing to determine the long term consequences to human health and the environment. Not only that, where such studies have been attempted on independent lines, the contrarian results are dismissed by the government, or simply quashed altogether. Russia wasn't buying, of course, and as I've also pointed out, the Russian government raised similar concerns when it began to ban GMOs: inadequate intergenerational testing, possible complications to the human genome itself, and so on. We were assured that the Roundup glyphosate problem wasn't a problem... until of course the studies showing carcinogenic properties became too numerous to ignore, even for the state of Nuttyfornia, which, as the article points out, has now decided that these "food-like substances" need a similar warning as do tobacco products.
Now this article suggests that all of these concerns are implicated in IG. Farbensanto's latest GMO gimmick, RNA-interference corn:
One of the most important discoveries of our time is that all plants, including those we use for food and animal feed, contain a wide range of RNA molecules capable of inhibiting gene expression or translation. These non-coding RNA molecules neutralize targeted messenger RNA molecules (mRNAs), which prevents their translation into a protein, i.e. they “silence genes.”
Compelling research has surfaced suggesting that not only do these genome-regulating small RNA molecules exist in our foods, but that they are capable of surviving digestion, and being absorbed into our bodies fully intact where they alter, suppress or silence genes, post-transcriptionally. Moreover, some of these small RNAs — primarily microRNAs (miRNAs) and small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) — are believed to be cross-kingdom mediators of genetic information, making it possible for RNAs in one species impacting many others through both their active and passive exposure to them.
Food therefore is essentially an epigenetic modifier of gene expression, making it a form of information, and not only a source of bodily building blocks and caloric energy, as conventionally understood. As such, any significant changes to food or feed staples within our food chain could have powerful impacts on the physiological fate of those consuming them, essentially rewriting the functionality of our genomic hardware via software like changes in RNA profiles. (Emphasis in the original)
Read the opening sentence of the last paragraph one more time: "Food is therefor essentially an epigenetic modifier of gene expression..." Recently, in the field of genetics, more and more geneticists have been suggesting that there is another factor that impacts on gene expression, beyond the basic "materialistic" assumption that all expression is through the sequences of base pairs. In effect, what the Environmental Pollution (Promotion) Agency has now done is to fast-track a product whose ultimate effects are not completely known, because the model of epigenetic expression is still not completely known.
There's an expression for this; it's called "throwing the dice." Nor is this anything new for our corrupt government and the corporate crapitalists it favors:
Roundup, for instance, has demonstrated carcinogenicity in the parts per trillion range. Yet, theEPA considers it perfectly safe for consumers to ingest many orders of magnitude higher concentrations than that, proving its function as a cheerleader and not a regulator of the industry that controls our food supply.
The Atlantic, one of the only mainstream news outlets to report on the topic, pointed out how surprisingly low key the approval process was:
“The EPA’s decision attracted little attention from the press or even from environmental groups that reliably come out against new genetically modified crops.”
Bill Freese, The Center for Food Safety’s science policy analyst, told the Atlantic he was caught off guard by EPA’s decision to only allow 15 days of public comment, and the fact that it did not post its decision to the Federal Register, as it customary, especially considering how unprecedented the use of a RNAi insecticide in a plant intended for human consumption is.
Ponder that for a moment: the Environmental Pollution (Promotion) Agency allowed fifteen days of comment on a decision that has life-altering potential. Fifteen days to comment on this:
RNAi interference technology promises specificity — one RNAi molecule change equals one gene suppressed — but ignores the virtually infinite possibility of unintended, adverse effects in what are incomprehensibly complex biological systems. Indeed, researchers have warned that RNAi can not only profoundly affect gene expression, but that the changes it induces can permanently alter a species through inherited traits 1:
“Once a silencing effect is initiated, the effect may be inherited. The biochemistry of this process varies depending on the organism and remains an area of active research with many unknown aspects. Nevertheless, it is known for example that human cells can maintain the modifications necessary for TGS, creating actual or potential epigenetic inheritance within tissues and organisms (Hawkins et al., 2009). In some cases the dsRNA pathways induce RNA-dependent DNA methylation and chromatin changes (TGS) that persist through reproduction or cell division, and in other cases the cytoplasmic pathways remain active in descendents (Cogoni and Macino, 2000).”
(All emphases in the original)
IG Farbensanto strikes again, and once again, the government shows it is not on the side of reasonable caution, or the people, or a fundamental issue of food freedom. Just the corporations, and their "science". Consider the implications of this part of the article:
Surprisingly, Monsanto itself has produced one of the most damning papers on the topic yet. Several years ago I stumbled upon a study funded by Monsanto that raised a number of red flags for me. Titled, “Endogenous small RNAs in grain: Semi-quantification and sequence homology to human and animal genes,” researchers employed by Monsanto in their St. Louis, MO, laboratory analyzed the presence of endogenous small RNAs in common food and feed staples — soybeans, corn, rice — discovering that hundreds of these plant RNAs had a perfect 100% complementary match to human genes as well as other mammals.
Why is this significant? Endogenous small RNAs, such as small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) and microRNAs (miRNAs), are effector molecules of RNA interference (RNAi), which is a gene suppression mechanism found in plants, mammals, and other eukaryotes. The implication, therefore, of Monsanto’s finding is that plant RNAs — were they capable of surviving digestion and accumulating in target tissues to physiologically relevant concentrations — are capable of epigenetically silencing hundreds of genes within the human body. Below you will find a list of the RNA/gene matches between rice and the human genome:
Despite the abundance of perfect 100% complementarity matches listed above, Monsanto’s conclusion was a conveniently pollyannish dismissal of the safety implications of these findings, stating that:
“The abundance of endogenous small RNA molecules in grain from safely consumed food and feed crops such as soybean, corn, and rice and the homology of a number of these dietary small RNAs to human and animal genomes and transcriptomes establishes a history of safe consumption for dietary small RNAs.”
While this may be true for traditionally used plants, it does not follow that genetically modified organisms would necessarily be safe because non-GMO versions are.
It's that last sentence that is the problem, and that has been the problem all along: the principle of "substantial equivalence" was the technique used to bypass the normal procedures of inter-generational testing on the one hand, because if it looks like corn and tastes like corn, it is corn; and on the other hand, allowed the corporations to patent their creations. In my book Genes, Giants, Monsters and Men, I argued that such genetic modifications, under the basic tenets of American - and other western - patent law could, perhaps, eventually be used to argue that a human being, who underwent such genetic modification due to eating GMOs, might eventually be viewed to a certain extent as the property of the company whose food he or she ate, since they exhibitted a modification that would otherwise not have occurred. At the very least, they might be forced to pay a "user fee" for the entirety of their lives.
That, of course, sounded ridiculous at the time. But now note this disturbing paragraph:
In a seminal paper published in 2016 in Trends in Microbiology, entitled, “How Our Other Genome Controls Our Epi-Genome,” it is proposed that the very RNAs biotech/agrochemical companies like Monsanto and Dow are tinkering with in our food should be reconsidered as part of the definition of our species versus the conventional view that it is just something informationally inert that we eat and exists “out there.” Using a revised version of Da Vinci’s Vitruvian man, as pictured below, they propose that there are 4 inseparable parts of our species: 1) human cells 2) human microbiota and other bacteria 3) Fungi and Viruses 4) Food. (Emphasis added)
See you on the flip side...

Fair Warning – Don’t read unless a barf bucket is handy – or a stiff brandy.
I’ll be attending grain growers Commodity Classic next week and this Dummkoph is the keynote speaker: “We Love GMOs and Vaccines . . . Biotech for a Brighter Tomorrow.”
He claims he has 100,000 followers on Fakebook and his life was saved by the anti-GMO movement causing him to lose 100 pounds counting calories. He reads the Daily Kos, Washington Compost while nixing Info Wars, Natural News and Dr. Mercola. An ignoramus indeed! Think about this – Farmers forced to spray crops 2 weeks prior to harvest with Round Up (also a desiccant in addition to poison) to reduce moisture as granaries reject harvest over specified moisture content due to subsequent transit handlers not wanting to get stuck with mold. Pray this educator sees the light because he’s teaching someone’s children in middle school. http://welovegv.com/author/welovegv/
Wow Wee, Dr. Farrell – you are absolutely correct in Genes, Giants, Monsters and Men. During the Clinton Administration, Bill Gates got a patent on the human body as an “energy device”. He also owns many other patents he partnered with like the Ebola vax with CDC and NIH.
“I argued that such genetic modifications, under the basic tenets of American – and other western – patent law could, perhaps, eventually be used to argue that a human being, who underwent such genetic modification due to eating GMOs, might eventually be viewed to a certain extent as the property of the company whose food he or she ate, since they exhibitted a modification that would otherwise not have occurred.

Recipe for GM sweet corn fried rice:
1) wash and soak Bayer’s LibertyLink glufosinate resistant rice for 15 to 20 minutes
2) Cook rice and cool completely
3) heat Monsanto canola oil and fry biolistically transformed garlic until it smells good
4) add GM tear-free onions, Flavr Savr tomatos and fry until golden
5) add veggies including Bt-corn and fry until partially cooked
6) add pesticide contaminated chopped celery and fry for a while
7) add Golden rice , salt, pepper powder and Oxitec olive oil
8) stir all and fry for a minute
9) swerve sweet corn fried rice hot or cold
10) season with Roundup Ready soy sauce
Sounds yummy! You can wash it down with pesticide laden wine, or a Pepsi containing extract of human fetus and gmo HFCS, or if you’re already morbidly obese, have a diet Coke with Aspartame, or just some refreshing nocal tap water with a dash of fluoride.
Remember, you are what you eat.
Enki-Niki & Basta
This is another indicator of the prime directive; market fundamentalism is the only ism acceptable in corporate governance. Anything at odds[dice roll] with market-driven values, deregulation, and the logic of privatization is verboten. This market driven fundamentalism ensures self over community, legitimates an all-embracing quest for profits [those many prophet$ of market fundamentalism abound all around us], and promotes a kill or be killed social context in which misfortune[dice roll] is seen as a weakness and the Hobbesian rule of a war of all against all replaces any vestige of shared responsibilities for others, the future, or the living ecosystems on which all life depends.
The enemy is a population empowered to defend and advance the public interest, community, and the environment through a substantive democracy designed[that word again] to foster economic equality and social rights[designed NOT for crisis; but against it].
Poison-torture-kill all in the name of profit-power the biggest illusion in the universe. When o when will our overlords ever grow up and behave once for all it’s all not worth it in the end there is more to life than being the master.
Notching up the soft kill.
Today, the whole purpose of the agricultural, food processing, pharmaceutical and “healthcare” industries, supported by government, is to keep you chronically ill, then kill you off (preferably by cancer as it makes tons of money and drains off your accumulated wealth) when you are no longer productive and start pulling in your pension.
The system is run by a death cult, so none of us should be surprised by any of this, and should take defensive action accordingly. Stay away from corporate, processed “food” to start.
Corporate rule and the weaponizaton of, well, everything. Those seed banks are there for after the culling of the herd once you and I, along with the other 95% of humanity, have been converted to fertilizer in an effort to rebuild the soil which has been depleted of virtually all trace elements and minerals, except potassium, phosphorus, and nitrogen ( the only 3 required to be added to the soil for modern agriculture).
Murdering us outright would cause too much blow back and would result in our eliminating them. Since 1936, you cannot possibly eat enough food to ingest the required nutrients for a healthy life, your stomach simply isn’t large enough. In essence, we are slowly starving to death. We’re not doing so fast enough, apparently.
Couldn’t agree more.
WD, I have a personal story on trace elements and minerals. I ran across a distributor of the obscure trace elements, and bought a bottle. Well, my body went into ‘crave’ mode. It couldn’t get enough. Then, all of a sudden, the craving ended. The tanks must have been full. Ahhh, body wisdom…
I once had a dream of a furry, large, blue teddy bear who worked at a fright factory scaring children to supply his city with energy. Sully had a side-kick named Mike who operated the closet door/jam apparatus which created a portal between the factory floor and the child’s bedroom. Oh, wait! This was no dream. It was a movie. “Monsters, Inc.” Hhmm… I wonder if this was an hyperbolic swipe at Monsanto? Only the real monsters in the real Monster, Inc are not so funny!
“Then to Adam He said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree about which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat from it’; Cursed is the ground because of you; In toil you will eat of it All the days of your life. “Both thorns and thistles it shall grow for you; And you will eat the plants of the field; By the sweat of your face You will eat bread, Till you return to the ground, Because from it you were taken; For you are dust, And to dust you shall return”.” Look at Weston Price’s findings re the effect of eating grains on future generations.
My last answer is in moderation.. so I’ll step away from wild assertions that Monsanto is flavouring the Herd..
Here is some links.. because I hate.. i hate.. I hate with every fibre of my body and soul this company.
They are EVIL. Oppsosite to Google.. their motto is Excellence in Evil.
Why does Monsanto sue Farmers who save seeds…
BECAUSE YOU’RE EVIL !!!!
And because Politicans are weak willed spineless egotistical money worshipping (I wont even go into the other stuff. .lets just stay with Monsanto and the Nazi’s today…
And here is a good link to see what the scientists are saying to each other..
Info from 10 May 2017.
I share your horror and disgust Dr Farrel. I’d just like to make some Hi-Octane-dot connecting…(Hi-Oct-Dot-Con)
I’m more of a believer of the Annunaki intervening with the local clay to make a worker species (the original GMO..) rather than man being created by a (nowadays) Transcendential metaphysical God.
Getting a Hybrid out of 2 species is apperantly genetically possible.. (see posts and blogs about the Human-Pig-embryo) so evidently, our understanding of genetic manipulation is limited and inter-species mixing is ‘viable’.. (the stories therefore of cutting up an Annunaki hero and mixing essences with clay… seem to make sense in this context)
I’m pretty sure.. that some kind of ‘advanced’ intervention came about in meso-america in order to turn Teocinte into today’s multi coloured corn..
(Teocinte has been found to be cultivated in Mexico area around 6000 years ago – Teocinte is the one on the left:))
I’m sure that some aggressive genetic manipulation went on there.. but was it through mixing it up between pollens and stigmas.. or did Enki go in to cut out DNA sequences, splice and dice the genomes.?? probably.. but he was supposedly an immortal God who knew what he was doing.. (actually he needed the help of Ninhursag his half sister to get the worker species right..so maybe he didnt know what he was doing, but they lived in the hundreds of thousands of years, so they had enough time to get it right.. maybe.)
So sometimes.. some manipulation can be ok.. othewise we’d still probably be swinging from the tress like the rest of the primates who didnt get to eat the apple..(check out skull 5 from Dmanisi) the monkeys we see today are what we ought to be right now.. Evolution takes millions of years.. not a few thousand..
Or at least.. we can assume…with our limited understanding…say :what was done before.. seems to have worked. How often do I hear people talking about a major part of our brain is switched off.. Could this have been done by what we were consuming?
So.. what I’m supposing is.. (major dot connecting.. even interdimensional dot connecting..)
Imagine that these Gods were in fact immortal.. were still hanging around making major trouble for us poor humans.. Where would a God entity who specialises in genetic manipulation go and work?
Especially if you factor in stories about Nazi’s meeting up with supposed other-wordly entities.. and they got really interested in Eugenics..
I’m not saying that Bayer bought Monsanto because they’re all the same evil monster God Entity hiding behind a corporate ‘identity’… (maybe that’s why they allow corporations to be entities (or is it persons..) in law
But I’m thinking it..
I think that we dont really understand the full complexity of digestion and the ingerance of elements into our bodies properly..
I think that there is a saying.. that is probably hiding more wisdom in it that we think.. which is..
“You are what you eat.”
Now put that into context with Parabiosis, the act of infusing ‘energy’ of the young.. by consuming their blood.. or flesh. The consumption of vital energy. Have you ever eaten the liver of a calf, compare it the liver of a cow.
This transfer of RNAi by eating the food.. seems almost to explain (for me) this transfer of energy.
Have you ever heard about feeding Pigs certain mushrooms and truffles in order to make their flesh taste sweeter.. or tenderer..
(just thinking about point n° 4 in your last phrase Doctor..)
Major HOS-DC.. way out in woowooland..
I reckon, that Monsanto is at least carrying on the work of eugenics who (I think) are carrying on the work they picked up from the German archeologists in Nippur..
and they’re probably adding this RNAi stuff to either disable even further our brains.. or just to make us taste nicer..
Kahlypso, you make several good points. About Enki and similar being the equivalent of ‘on the board’ of Mon-satan: What better position to ‘enforce’ any genetic manipulation of humans? I would be curious to know how much of the RNAi originates within Mon-satan’s labs, and how much is brought-in from ‘outside’. Fresh from the vats…
And here we thought that all the oligarchs and AngloZi onists buying mega-ranches down in South America were doing it to avoid the pitchforks of the home populations when their machinations were revealed. It turns out that they were really fleeing the epigenetic plagues…
Article: “…essentially rewriting the functionality of our genomic hardware via software-like changes in RNA profiles.”
Anybody remember Larry Niven’s ‘Pak Protectors’ from his Ringworld Series and earlier? They were the next-development-up from ‘Pak Breeders’ (us), induced by eating the ‘Tree-of-Life’ root (a lift from the Gilgamesh Epic, I presume). So, proceeding along that line:
Epigenetic modification of DNA is generally regarded as destructive. However, taking a wider/deeper view, what if Enki did not delete or destroy any of proto-humanity’s DNA? What if, instead, he and Ninharsag simply coded various RNAi snippets to disable EXPRESSION of undesirable traits (ESP, longevity, genius-level neuronal-connections, ‘wetware’ side of God-communication, etc.)?
Then, it is possible that random ‘additional’ “small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) and microRNAs (miRNAs)” snippets from modern sources might just disable the DNA-silencers, re-enabling those DNA expressions. We might gain a few ‘genius’ or ‘spiritual’ individuals from this modern barrage. Look at various ‘gifted’ autistic individuals for a clue to what we might really be…
(Hey, any good-guy RNA researchers: How about looking for ‘suspicious’ DNA-disabling RNAi sequences? You might be doing the species a favor…)
Ah.. I knew I can count on Goshawks for more Enkinery..we answered at the same time 🙂 (My answer is currently awaiting moderation)
Fully back you up buddy – I want to know if at least telekinesis got switched off by genetic manipulation.. We seem to be able to attain a certain threshold by returning to a Theta state.. but in and of itself…
Spray the plant with roundup and it dies 24 hours later. We have been eating more and more glyphosate poison every year since 1975. It’s not only glyphosate but other chemicals added to it that makes it adhere to the leaves and makes it even more toxic. The accumulated toxicity in our bodies has created a rise in pretty much every disease out there. Pharmaceutical companies are happy with so many sick people taking their drugs making them even sicker. Our health system won’t be able to handle the increased chronic illness epidemic. When is the tipping point gonna happen? I’d say it’s happening now. It’s not looking good on so many fronts.
Kahlypso, I am sure telepathy and empathy were the first to be switched off. You don’t want your workers to know your plans for them. Telekinesis probably went for the same reason mentioned in B5: TK would make the perfect assas sination weapon. (The PsiCorps wanted it badly enough to manipulate recruits.)
You know, that may be why the modern RNAi push is on. If we are ‘regenerating’, the following scenario is probably how it will play out: Empathy switching on first, with the sense that something is very wrong. Telepathy switching on second, with dawning awareness of what has been done to us – direct from the perps. Telekinesis switching on third, with unimaginable things being done to the perps via the resulting Rage.
No wonder why the perps are pulling-out all the stops…
