The Toxins That Threaten Our Brains

Leading scientists recently identified a dozen chemicals as being responsible for widespread behavioral and cognitive problems. But the scope of the chemical dangers in our environment is likely even greater. Why children and the poor are most susceptible to neurotoxic exposure that may be costing the U.S. billions of dollars and immeasurable peace of mind.

“That’s what I advise people who ask me, yes. It’s the best way of preventing exposure to pesticides.” Grandjean estimates that there are about 45 organophosphate pesticides on the market, and “most have the potential to damage a developing nervous system.”

Here are the facts about why GMOs are among the safest products on the market today:

Every plant improved through genetic modification is examined by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Environmental Protection Agency for potential health risks.
Tests are done on plants before entering the food and animal-feed supply.
Fruits, vegetables and grains from genetically modified crops are indistinguishable from foods developed with other breeding methods.
The FDA has found that GMO foods have the same nutritional value as non-GMO foods.
Out of the trillions of meals consumed that have contained GMO ingredients, not one single substantiated case of harm to human health has been caused by GMOs.
The World Health Organization, American Medical Association, National Research Council, FDA, European Commission and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation all agree that GMOs are safe.

Did you know that no other food ingredient or product costs as much to bring to market or has been studied as much as GMO crop seed? How does that make you feel? If Jimmy Kimmel asked you, what would you say about GMOs now?

Mr. Farmer:

Thousands of New Yorkers disagree with you. They are shopping at non gmo farms for their meat and the organics in grocery stores. Big stores like Wegman's is contracting with organic farmers for ingredients to produce "Wegman's Organic." Whole Foods grocery chain will label all gmo's by the end of 2015. Down goes the gmo customer base.

They are also the shoppers that are FORCED to eat organic, gluten free, due to the nasty symptoms caused by your gmo food products. Go to Wegmans or Trader Joe's on any day. There is no room to move, always bumping into people. There again, your customer base is shrinking because gmo food, pesticides and herbicides make people sick and the World Health Organization just admitted that Glyphosate, a/k/a, Round Up, "probably causes cancer."

Been to a restaurant lately? Ask the wait staff how many people ask for organic, gluten free options?

Right now your customers are farmers that grow and spray this poison on crops, the animals forced to eat it and grocery and restaurant customers who do not understand the incredible harm from it. Gasoline too. (Non-Ethenol gas is sold at Fast Track gas stations (Geneva/Clyde).) Oh, and the countries that are having this technology forced on them because of dirty politics.

It is only a matter of time. No parent wants to see their family harmed. When they learn about gmo food, your customer base will keep declining. The tipping point of consumer rejection is upon you. Listen.

People are pretty smart nowadays about the trust worthiness of their government, corporations, etc., and are learning that they can't even trust the media and medical professionals. Trust the FDA? Lmao, not a chance.

Everybody is in it for a buck. Even the ones that should be educating you are not and will only educate the ones that have enough money to fill their pockets.

I have no financial interest. My only purpose is to educate and heal my family. If I can get through to someone else in the process, I'm happy with that.

Brazil’s National Cancer Institute names GM crops as cause of massive pesticide use

09 April 2015

The report names GM crops as a key cause of the trend: “Importantly, the release of transgenic seeds in Brazil was one of the factors responsible for putting the country in first place in the ranking of agrochemical consumption – since the cultivation of these modified seeds requires the use of large quantities of these products.”

The report continues:

And yet pesticide use is down dramatically since GMOs.

From Union of Concerned Scientists

The School Nutrition Association (SNA) represents the school food professionals who feed our kids – but their lobbyists are contradicting the science, and trying to take fruits & vegetables off kids’ lunch trays. And guess who’s funding their efforts? Junk food companies.

Meet the School Nutrition Association (SNA), one of the main lobbying groups—funded in part by corporate junk food money—standing in the way of healthier school lunch for kids.

SNA not only opposes improved nutrition standards that would keep fruits and vegetables on kids' lunch trays, they're actively flooding Capitol Hill with misinformation.

But we've got what the opposition doesn't have: science. Tell the SNA to stop contradicting the science and support keeping fruits and vegetables on all kids' lunch trays.

Shikimate pathways

Dr. Robert Kremer: GMOs, Glyphosate and Soil Biology

April 15, 2015 by Carol Grieve

...recently retired after a 32-year career as a microbiologist with the U.S.D.A. He spoke with Food Integrity Now about the problems he has studied over the past 18 years with transgenic crops (GMOs) and Glyphosate.

Since we have evidence of Glyphosate being found in our gut where the bacteria do have shikimate pathways, it makes sense why we are seeing the increase of many allergies and diseases that originate in the gut where 80% of our immune system is in our microbiome. The chelation process of Glyphosate can make some of the good gut bacteria unavailable and as Dr. Kremer explained can shift the balance of the microbial population in our gut. Keep in mind, Glyphosate has also been found in our urine, human breast milk, and in our blood. The biotech industry claims that Glyphosate degrades in the soil and it cannot affect humans because we do not have a shikimate pathway–however the bacteria in our gut does have this pathway.

MIT Scientist Exposes Consequence of Monsanto’s Glyphosate & Aluminum Cocktail

by Christina Sarich Posted on September 15, 2014

Aluminum and Glyphosate

Aluminum and glyphosate specifically interrupt the workings of the pineal gland (melatonin sulfate), leading to high rates of autism. She outlines this fact in pinpointing detail in her research, which can be found here.

Furthermore, glyphosate chelates manganese. Dr. Seneff believes that just the absence of appropriate amounts of manganese can help to cause autism. Glyphosate also promotes aluminum uptake into our tissues, and interrupts an important path for amino acid uptake called the shikimate pathway, into our guts.

I have to buy real corn that is shipped from other countries because most New York farmers want to keep growing corn that poisons the environment, animals and humans. Gee, Mr. Farmer, what is the cost of that?

U.S. Forced to Import Corn as Shoppers Demand Organic Food

April 15, 2015

A growing demand for organics, and the near-total reliance by U.S. farmers on genetically modified corn and soybeans, is driving a surge in imports from other nations where crops largely are free of bioengineering.
