The first docu-series that came out this year about vaccines, “Vaccines Revealed,” is replaying starting tomorrow, May 1st. Click on the link below to register. If you don't receive the link to the series, check your junk folder.
“See, for decades Big Pharma has controlled and manipulated the media to keep the truth hidden.
They’ve silenced and shunned whistle-blowers...
They’ve repressed scientists who question the safety of vaccines…
They’ve revoked the licenses of doctors who dare to question the connection between vaccines and autism...
They’ve bribed politicians and government health officials.Enough is enough. It’s time to change that.
It’s time to uncover the truth and take back our health – not just for ourselves, but for our children as well.
I know we have a compelling documentary series with powerful proof that will not only open eyes, but also spark a movement for change across the US and the world.
Featuring exclusive interviews with the world's most acclaimed experts in research, medicine, immunology and natural health...
Vaccines Revealed exposes the hidden (and deadly) story behind the multi-billion dollar vaccine industry. Don’t take my word for it though...
I look forward to having you with us on this meaningful and significant journey.” Dr. Patrick Gentempo
White House aide: USDA to work on GMO labeling bill schedule
Starling also said that the Food and Drug Administration is engaged in revamping the standard nutrition facts label and is also interested in labeling for sodium and fiber, and that the Trump administration is having a conversation with the food industry about linking them all together in order to save the industry money.
That Perfect, Toxic Lawn: American Suburbs and 2,4-D (We kill the plants that cure cancer with a product that causes cancer.)
In 1945, the American Chemical Paint Company introduced its product Weedone…
The active ingredient in Weedone was a compound called 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid, 2,4-D for short. It had been developed by several separate teams of researchers working on secret chemical weapons projects during the war; the generals hoped to use 2,4-D to kill potato and rice crops, starving the Axis powers into submission.
That didn’t work: 2,4-D isn’t effective on those crops.
But the stuff did kill weeds in grass, and 2,4-D rapidly became one of the most-used pesticides in American society. After the herbicide’s patent expired in the 1960s other companies rushed to create their own formulations, often mixed with fertilizer in retail products called things like “Weed and Feed.” By 2005, the EPA estimated that around 46 million pounds of the weed-killer were used each year, about 30 million pounds of that in agriculture. Since then farm use of 2,4-D has only grown, reaching nearly 40 million pounds in 2013.
While farm use accounts for the majority of the poundage of 2,4-D used in the US, it’s in home lawns and gardens that the herbicide is applied most heavily, often at several times the number of pounds per acre used to kill the same weeds in farm fields.
Statement from Health Canada - Final Re-evaluation Decision on Glyphosate
Health Canada has published the final re-evaluation decision on glyphosate. Following a rigorous science-based assessment, Health Canada has determined that when used according to the label, products containing glyphosate are not a concern to human health and the environment.
NYC schools have kicked Kellogg's out and so should the rest of us...please sign the petitions.
NYC schools have kicked Kellogg's out and so should the rest of us. Kellogg's sales have slumped since we launched the boycott campaign in 2013. Let's keep it growing! Make a pledge to ask your family and friends to join the boycott to change the food system from the bottom up!
BREAKING: Kellogg's is removing GMO labels from their products. The company began labeling when Vermont's mandatory GMO labeling law was passed. The law has since been overturned at the federal level by the DARK Act, signed into law last July. The company is back to their old deceptive ways - poisoning unsuspecting people for profit. BOYCOTT KELLOGG'S and spread the word.
SIGN THE PETITION: Kellogg's - Remove GMOs and get Non-GMO Project Verified. http://gmofreeusa.org/…/boycot…/boycotts-kelloggs-consumers/
Crushing blow to soy processors as Chinese grow wary on GMO
"Non-GMO oil is gradually replacing (soy oil)," said Johnny An, supply chain director at food-service firm Aramark, which serves meals in banks, government offices and schools in more than 60 Chinese cities.
Monsanto Violates Maui County Agreement by Failing to Disclose Local Usage of Restricted Pesticides
Under a Memorandum of Understanding between Monsanto and the County of Maui annual reports detailing Restricted Use Pesticides are supposed to be released within 60 days of the close of a calendar year. More than 100 days since the close of 2016, Monsanto has still not posted their latest report.
First study finds neonic pesticides in US drinking water
"Without really good toxicity data it is hard to ascertain the scale of this, but whenever we have pesticides in the drinking water that is something that raises a flag no matter what type of concentration it is," said Prof LeFevre.
Dr Huber: Glyphosate Could Cause Bee Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD)
These uses have created an extensive exposure level throughout the year with especially high concentrations in plants, air, water and soil during primary bee foraging periods. The exposure, physiological damage, and biological impact of glyphosate are consistent with all of the known conditions related to CCD as shown in Table 1 (see in full paper). Of all of the potential individual factors implicated in CCD, glyphosate is the only compound extensively used world-wide where CCD occurs that impacts all of them. That compound, again, is the patented mineral chelator (USPTO, 1964), herbicide, and antibiotic (USPTO, 2000), glyphosate. New studies refer to this compound as the most biologically disruptive chemical in our environment (Samsel and Seneff, 2013). (E. Note: Samsel and Seneff is worth reading the abstract on the link. You can download the entire PDF, which goes into the modern diseases glyphosate is creating.)
United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Animal Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has prepared an environmental assessment (EA) in response to an environmental release permit application (APHIS Number 16-076-101r) received on March 16th, 2016 from Dr. Anthony Shelton of Cornell University1 to allow the field release of genetically engineered (GE) diamondback moth (Plutella xylostella) strain OX4319L-Pxy on a release site within the grounds of the Cornell University New York State Agricultural Experiment Station (NYSAES). The release site for this EA consists of an experimental field, up to 10 acres in size, within which there will be a single point at which the open air release will occur 2.
ArborGen, Inc. with headquarters in Ridgeville, South Carolina, wants “non-regulated status” for their genetically engineered eucalyptus trees. As required by law, the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has published the draft Environmental Impact Statement with a public comment period. To comment, go to https://www.regulations.gov/docket?D=APHIS-2012-0030. To read more about the threat of industrial tree plantations, see this article from the Center for Food Safety.
GENETICALLY ENGINEERED TREES CONDEMNED IN REGION KNOWN AS “GROUND ZERO” FOR THEIR DEVELOPMENT
A Silent Forest (About GE Trees) - Dr. David Suzuki - 2012
ArborGen, Inc. is heavy into global commercial forestry. They are asking for non-regulated status of their genetically engineered Eucalyptus trees for planting in the U.S. A few years ago, David Suzuki, renowned geneticist and host of PBS/ The Nature of Things, warned of the threat of genetically engineered trees. If your haven't seen his documentary, Silent Forest, you can find it here:
“It’s just a mistake to think that genes act as if their traits are expressed regardless of where they exist.”
“Large paper, agriculture and timber corporations are pouring vast sums of money into genetically engineering trees because they believe they will be more efficient and profitable. They hope to engineer traits so that trees kill insects, trees resist toxic herbicides, trees will have reduced lignin, the long fiber that gives rigidity to the tree and makes it difficult to manufacturer paper. Trees that are sterile for using no seeds, nuts, pollen, nectar or fruit.”
A review from S. Alexander: “As an environmental scientist, who's grad-school advisor was Jonathan Ballou (developed captive-breeding programs for Giant Panda & Golden-Lion Tamarins - amongst others...?) I can say that "The Silent Forest" was one of the VERY BEST documentaries I have seen, in terms of presenting lay-people with a solid scientific understanding of the dangers of GE technology.”
From Moms Across America: “If you've raised concerns about #GMOs and gotten trolled by strangers (no duh…), check out these court documents just filed:”
"Monsanto even started the aptly named 'Let Nothing Go' program to leave nothing, not even Facebook comments, unanswered; through a series of third parties, it employs individuals who appear to have no connection to industry, who in turn post positive comments on news articles and Facebook posts defending Monsanto, its chemicals and GMOs."
Folic Acid and Glyphosate MAY 4, 2016 BY STEPHANIE SENEFF, PHD
At first glance, this seems like a good idea, but the European Union (aside from the United Kingdom) has steadfastly refused to adopt this requirement, despite pressures from the U.S. Is there a downside to folic acid supplementation? Do the Europeans know something that the U.S. government does not?
If you were paying attention, you noticed that I said “folate” deficiency and “folic acid” supplementation. Folate and folic acid are the same thing, right? Interchangeable. Wrong! I have seen research papers use these words interchangeably, but they are definitely not the same thing. The folic acid supplement that’s added to flour is a synthetic version of the B vitamin, which is oxidized and missing the methyl group. The active form of the vitamin is technically called methyltetrahydrofolate. Folic acid is much more stable, whereas folate easily breaks down with aging or with heat (as in baking the bread). Folic acid is a (cheaper) synthetic molecule whereas folate is natural.
One has to wonder whether somebody involved in the introduction of this law knew something about the potential of glyphosate to cause spina bifida. It would not take a rocket scientist to think that disruption of the gut microbes that naturally produce folate for the host would lead to folate deficiency. In fact, it is a direct hit: folate is produced from products of the shikimate pathway, and this is the pathway that even Monsanto admits is disrupted in plants and microbes by glyphosate. Furthermore, the microbes that synthesize folate for the host, lactobacillus and bifidobacteria,3 are the ones that glyphosate preferentially kills.4
Group seeks to nullify permits on genetically modified maize, cotton
Bassey further queried the safety and environmental risk assessment of the GMOs, adding that the two bodies did not show how they would deal with secondary pests, exposure pathways and pests resistance.
Chasing Corporate Polluters and Protecting our Future | Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. | TEDxHudson - 2014
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Empowered by little known and previously never used arcane bounty laws, a group of working class generational fisherman on the Hudson uncovered a way to prosecute polluters. Decades later their heroic efforts ripple now across the waters of the globe. This engaging and charming and visionary speaker, long associated with River Keeper, charts the course forward for preserving our environment and ensuring a healthy future.
“...but our children are going to pay for our joy ride and they’re going to pay for it with demuted landscapes and poor health and huge clean up costs that are going to amplify over time and that they will never be able to pay.”
FDA Approves Three New Types of GMO Potatoes — Here’s What You Must Know to Avoid Them
The three new varieties to watch out for are as follows: Ranger Russet, Atlantic and Russet Burbank, in addition to the White Russet variety that was introduced in limited quantities in 2015.
The new GMO potatoes have been genetically engineered to resist the pathogen that caused the Irish potato famine, and likely will be planted this spring before being sold in the fall. The potatoes are part of the “Innate” line from J.R. Simplot.
Just as we are starting to become educated in the "microbiome" that supports our health, we are discovering the life that lives within and supports our soil and the life that comes from it. In every tablespoon of soil, there are 6 billion microorganisms doing a variety of jobs. It is a beautiful dance that maintains a healthy environment. But the chemical companies masquerading as seed companies told us that they could do better. They told us that they could replace nature. They told us that we needed their toxic chemicals and their toxic seeds to feed the growing population. Well, as you, the intelligent reader, are finding out how wrong they are.
