Samsel is trying to get in on this meeting and Big Ag is trying to keep the scientists out of it.
Upcoming EPA Meetings on Safety of Monsanto Weed Killer Drawing Scrutiny
So it’s no small matter that in mid-October the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) plans to spend four days holding public meetings with a scientific advisory panel on the topic of whether or not glyphosate can cause cancer. The idea of shining a public spotlight on this mounting concern about the world’s most widely used herbicide has not set well with Monsanto and the rest of the industry that profits from glyphosate products like Roundup. Agrichemical interests have gone so far as to tell the EPA that the meetings should not be held at all, and have said that if they are, many of the world’s top scientists should be excluded from participating.
I am honored once again to have Dr. Judy Mikovits author of #Plague on this important webinar. This one will be on the #Microbiome: Development of healthy gut immunity, how the gut microbial diversity is injured by environmental toxins including GMO and vaccines. Thursday October 6th 2pm EST. (Free 72 hr replay link provided with registration).
Monsanto Teams Up With Harvard, MIT Institute to Unleash New Unregulated GMOs on Unsuspecting Customers
Monsanto announced recently that it has reached an agreement with the Broad Institute (a biomedical and genomic research institute) of MIT and Harvard University, continuing a trend of corporate infiltration of academia that also included a recent $6 million dollar donation by Bill Gates to help “de-polarize” the debate on GMOs at another top university, Cornell.
Stephanie Seneff: “A new paper has just been published where we made a case for osteonecrosis of the jaw being linked to impaired glucose 6 phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) activity in red blood cells.
G6PD activity is suppressed 2.67 fold in E coli exposed to glyphosate. Also, G6PD contains highly conserved glycines that are essential for its function. Swapping in of glyphosate for one or more of those glycines can be expected to derail this protein. We didn't mention glyphosate in the paper because we knew we would be unable to publish it in this journal if we did.
Here's a quote from this article:”
Human glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase: the crystal structure reveals a structural NADP+ molecule and provides insights into enzyme deficiency. (G stands for "glycine").
"The mutations G410C and G410D in the βM–βN turn are also in the dimer surface (Figure 5b). The larger residues are sterically hindered and the low thermostability of these variants can be explained by the failure to retain the required mainchain conformation when glycine is replaced."
“And another quote (another glycine):”
"The class I variants G488S, G488V and P489L in the βO–αo turn demonstrate the importance of the conformational properties of glycine and proline in positioning Arg487 to interact with the adenine and the 2′-phosphate."
SIGNIFICANT COURT VICTORY: ORGANIC COMMUNITY WINS DISMISSAL CHALLENGE OVER USDA'S ILLEGAL PROCEDURE REVERSING THE SUNSET RULE
Court Rules Consumers and Farmers Can Sue USDA for Weakening Standard that Allows Synthetics in Organic
(Beyond Pesticides September 12, 2016) On Thursday, September 8, a federal judge in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California rejected the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) motion to dismiss a federal lawsuit (Case No. 15-cv-01590-HSG) that challenges changes to the rules that review the potential hazards and need for allowed synthetic and prohibited natural substances used in certified organic food production. Finding that plaintiffs had established both proper jurisdiction and a viable claim, this ruling allows the case to move forward on its merit. The court will now be able to review the substantive importance of formal notice and public comment regarding the rules for organic food production, which were changed dramatically by USDA in 2013.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has been arm-twisting journalists into relinquishing their reportorial independence, our investigation reveals. Other institutions are following suit.
The deal was this: NPR, along with a select group of media outlets, would get a briefing about an upcoming announcement by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration a day before anyone else. But in exchange for the scoop, NPR would have to abandon its reportorial independence. The FDA would dictate whom NPR's reporter could and couldn't interview.
“My editors are uncomfortable with the condition that we cannot seek reaction,” NPR reporter Rob Stein wrote back to the government officials offering the deal. Stein asked for a little bit of leeway to do some independent reporting but was turned down flat. Take the deal or leave it.
NPR took the deal. “I'll be at the briefing,” Stein wrote.
Later that day in April 2014, Stein—along with reporters from more than a dozen other top-tier media organizations, including CBS, NBC, CNN, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times—showed up at a federal building to get his reward. Every single journalist present had agreed not to ask any questions of sources not approved by the government until given the go-ahead.
“......Both Zen Honeycutt (Moms Across America) and Anthony Samsel (a retired chemist) found glyphosate in vaccines - multiple samples, several different vaccines. Consistent results for one vaccine sent to multiple labs. I'd say it's pretty solid, and it makes sense when you consider what goes into vaccines. I think it may be the main reason why MMR today is so much more dangerous than it was in the 1990's. You can see that very clearly if you analyze the VAERS database statistically.”
“MMR is much more toxic today than it used to be. I have compared the data in VAERS after 2002 compared to before 2002. 9 times as many hospitalizations after 2002, Significantly increased risk for mentions of autism. Anaphylactic shock , facial swelling, seizures, syncopy - all statistically significantly more common after 2002. It's the same vaccine. Why is it more toxic than it used to be? I believe it's because it's picking up glyphosate from the collagen, fetal bovine serum, human serum albumin, and other ingredients that are used in the manufacturing process. Glyphosate usage on corn and soy crops has gone up dramatically over the past two decades in step with the dramatic rise in autism rates.”
Opposed to GMOs? Are Monsanto’s new CRISPR crops any better?
As an Econexus report states of the new techniques: “They aim for deliberate changes to the genetic makeup and traits of an organism; they are laboratory techniques and are prone to off-target effects, as well as unintended effects from the genetic engineering processes.”
The claims of precision in the article below are misleading. Even in cases where the cutting and splicing of genes is more precise, the outcomes are not predictable or controllable. And CRISPR is known to inadvertently alter regions of the genome other than the intended ones.
HUMAN GENE EDITING: A summary overview of the science, research, regulations, ethics and hazards of Gene Editing/CRISPR.
Dr. Latham alarmingly writes that Gene Editing “can induce mutations at sites that differ by as many as five nucleotides from the intended target”, i.e. CRISPR may act at unknown sites in the genome where it is not wanted (u et al., 2014). So far, it is technically not possible to make a single (and only a single) genetic change to a genome using CRISPR and be sure one has done so (Fichtner et al., 2014). As Fichtner noted “in mammalian systems Cas9 causes a high degree of off-target effects”. And at least until modified versions come into use, this will limit the safety, and hopefully limit the application, of CRISPR and related biotechnologies. There is, furthermore, no guarantee that more precise versions of CRISPR are even biologically possible. Technically therefore, precision is a myth: no form of genome editing can do what is currently being claimed.
A Froot Loops Sample was Sent to a Lab for Tests..What They Found Should Have Every Parent Concerned
It found that a full 100% of the corn in Froot Loops was GMO, through a quantitative PCR test by DNA analysis that found sequences that are known to be present in insecticide producing Bt and Roundup Ready corn.
In addition, sequences known to be present in Roundup Ready soy (which is engineered so that it can be doused in Monsanto’s herbicide of the same name) was present as well.
A WHISTLE-BLOWER ACCUSES THE KOCHS OF “POISONING” AN ARKANSAS TOWN
But as far back as the nineteen-nineties, people living near the plant have described noxious odors and corrosive effluents that have forced them to stay indoors, as well as what seems to them unusually high rates of illness and death. Speaking by phone from his home, in Sterlington, Louisiana, Guice pointed the finger directly at the mill’s owners, and described a corporate coverup of air and water pollution that he says is “poisoning” the predominantly African-American community.
