Most of the genetically-modified (GM) corn products forced on American consumers today are hidden in processed foods in the form of high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), corn oil, corn starch, and various other corn-based additives.

But soon to be available at a Walmart near you is Monsanto’s Bt sweet corn, the agri-giant’s first ever GM corn product made available to consumers as whole ears right on the cob in the produce section– and like with all other GMOs, neither Walmart nor Monsanto has any intention of labeling this new “Frankencorn.”

Hayden’s Note:

I urge you to research the dangers of genetically modified foods. I have written countless articles on the topic.  With that being said, this move will further obfuscate and confuse consumers regarding the severity of GMOs.  For those few people out there who buy corn from the produce section in order to avoid BPA exposure from cans, or perhaps believe that the corn is better for you as a raw, unprocessed “produce item,” you’re in for a world of cancer and they won’t even give you a courtesy warning.  ...

Disturbing new research published in the Journal of Applied Toxicology indicates that genetically modified (GM) crops with “stacked traits”  — that is, with multiple traits such as glyphosate-herbicide resistance and Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) insecticidal toxins engineered together into the same plant, are likely far more dangerous to human health than previously believed, due to their synergistic toxicity.
In this latest study, the glyphosate-containing herbicide Roundup was tested on human embryonic kidney cells at concentrations between 1 to 20,000 parts per million (ppm). It was found that concentrations as low as 50 ppm per million, which the authors noted were “far below agricultural dilutions,” induced cell death, with the 50% of the cells dying at 57.5 ppm.
Resistance to glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup, has been engineered into many GM plants, so that fields can be sprayed indiscriminately with herbicide without destroying the crops. While the GM glyphosate-resistant plants survive, they subsequently contain residues of glyphosate and its various metabolites (e.g. aminomethylphosphonic acid) that present a significant health threat to the public....

What is more disturbing is that even at a lower, presumably “non toxic” concentration of 1 ppm of Roundup, testosterone concentrations were observed to decrease by 35%.

In a disturbing study published last month (Dec. 2011) in the Journal of Toxicology in Vitro, researchers found that Monsanto’s popular “weed killer” known as Roundup, which has already been linked to over 25 adverse health effects, is also capable of interfering with and/or harming the male reproductive system.

Researchers tested Roundup, a glyphosate-based herbicide, on mature rat testicular cells at a concentration range between 1 and 10,000 ppm, which they described as “the range in some human urine and in environment to agricultural levels.” They found that within 1 to 48 hours of Roundup exposure testicular (Leydig) cells were damaged or killed.

What is more disturbing is that even at a lower, presumably “non toxic” concentration of 1 ppm of Roundup, or glyphosate by itself, testosterone concentrations were observed to decrease by 35%.

Keep in mind that 1 ppm of Roundup is an infinitesimal concentration....

Less than a year after Frito-Lay announced plans to make half their products without “any artificial or synthetic ingredients,” the $13 billion company was sued last week in federal court for fraudulently marketing the snacks that contain genetically modified ingredients as “all natural.”

Hayden’s Note:

See a few of my articles about GMOs and High Fructose Corn Syrup –

Somehow, “artificial” and “synthetic” doesn’t include “genetically modified” in Frito’s mind.

In its April 2011 “Seed-to-Shelf” disclosure campaign, Frito-Lay promised to inform consumers about each individual snack’s ingredients, even setting up an app for smartphone users to swipe the product’s barcode and read about it. Ann Mukherjee, Frito-Lay’s senior vice president and chief marketing officer, gushed:

“What better way to share the story behind Frito-Lay snacks than by giving consumers a look inside our Flavor Kitchen to see first-hand the all natural ingredients and real foods that inspire the products we make?”

Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) today announced commonsense legislation that would prohibit open-air cultivation of Genetically Engineered (GE) pharmaceutical and industrial crops, preventing biological contamination of our food supply. The bill would also establish a tracking system to regulate and ensure the safety of GE pharmaceutical and industrial crops.

Hayden’s Note:

This is REAL food safety bill, unlike the Senate’s Food Safety Modernization Act (or SB 510) that was passed last year.  This is REAL change, REAL safety.  The contamination and cross-pollination of genetically modified organisms will destroy our food supply in short order.  It has already bankrupted thousands of American farmers, and has been the root cause of suicide by tens of thousands of Indian cotton farmers.  Monsanto is a bio-tech terrorist, plain and simple, and I consider GMOs to be one of the gravest dangers we face in this lifetime.

GMO soy and corn is the main staple of our industrial cattle and meat supply (when even 1st graders know that cows eat grass!), which often times causes farmers and feed lots to use antibiotics to keep the cows alive (this accounts for nearly 80% of antibiotic use in America – wonder why we have antibiotic-resistant illnesses lately?), and ultimately ends up in your body.  ...

Bill Gates Foundation Buys 500,000 Shares of Biotech Terrorist Monsanto

Posted on Dec 07, 2011 in Health, Food News, & Big Pharma

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has purchased 500,000 shares of Monsanto stock. Monsanto is the world’s largest producer of genetically modified food, which has been tied to numerous health ailments such as sterility, infant mortality, spontaneous abortion in livestock, organ failure, and now their flagship Bt corn strain is starting to fail.

If you’re not familiar with Bill Gates’ philanthropic side, you’ll discover that during a speech on vaccines, climate change, and global poverty, he said, “The world today has 6.8 billion people… that’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”

Spoken like a true eugenicist!  He wants to kill 15% of the global population through vaccines.  His Foundation has already been responsible for forced vaccinations at gunpoint, so I suppose this isn’t any new surprise.

When statements and actions such as those are coupled with large investments in chemical companies that create genetically altered food, it paints a very worrisome picture that involves population control....

Many “natural” cereals contain high levels of GMOs and chemical pesticide residues. Watch this new report from Cornucopia to get the full scoop on your favorite brands, such as Kashi, Whole Foods, and more! 

The Cornucopia Institute’s “Cereal Scorecard” (http://www.cornucopia.org/2011/10/n…) reveals some truly astonishing facts about what’s in our breakfast cereal:
 

Kashi brand cereals (Kellogg’s) contains “high levels” of GMOs. Not just a trace of GMOs, in other words, but a high level meaning the key ingredients are genetically engineered from the get-go. In fact, NaturalNews has learned that test results reveal 100% of the soy used in tested boxes of Kashi cereal was genetically engineered soy.

Mother’s brand cereals (PepsiCo) contains “high levels” of GMOs. Test results revealed 28% of the corn to be genetically engineered.

Whole Foods’ 365 brand Corn Flakes contains “high levels” of GMOs (more than 50% GE corn).

Barbara’s Bakery Puffins cereal was also shown to contain more than 50% genetically engineered corn.

Both Barbara’s Bakery Puffins and Whole Foods 365 Corn Flakes are “enrolled” in the Non-GMO Project, says Cornucopia (see below)....

Hayden’s Note:

As you read this article, I urge you to refresh your memory with the absolutely horrid side effects and dangers of genetically modified foods.  Organ failure, 2nd and 3rd generation reproductive issues, fertility complications, spontaneous abortions, kidney problems, and more!  There is no science proving that GMO biotech creates higher, more nutritious yields, while study after study shows that quality, organic farming and permaculture techniques can boost yields several times over while boosting the nutrition and profit from the field.  GMOs are outright banned in several countries and many more require strict labeling of any genetically engineered ingredients.  America?  Hell, most Americans haven’t even heard of GMOs, let alone have labeling requirements!

And Bill Gates?  Don’t get me started.  He supports forced vaccinations, some even at gun point!  He is also helping develop a male contraceptive.  He said not long ago, “The world today has 6.8 billion people… that’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”  Bill Gates – a eugenicist who’s company worked side by side with the Nazis, controls vast sums of money and spheres of influence, wants to alter your food. ...

A new paper reviewing data from 19 animal studies shows that consuming genetically modified (GM) corn or soybeans leads to significant organ disruptions in rats and mice, particularly in livers and kidneys (http://www.enveurope.com/content/23…). “Other organs may be affected too, such as the heart and spleen, or blood cells,” stated the paper. In fact some of the animals fed genetically modified organisms had altered body weights, which is “a very good predictor of side effects in various organs.”

Hayden’s Note:

I’ve written extensively about GMO corn and grass-fed cows.  This article is just another study that validates the dangers involved with consuming genetically modified foods.  Not only are cows designed to eat grass, but after feeding them GMO corn and soy, they develop a range of problems.  Those problems effect the steak on your plate.  That’s why many large commercial feedlots use so many antibiotics on their cattle!  If they didn’t, they would be dead after only a few months.  There are numerous other studies that show reproductive issues in 2nd and 3rd generations, sterility in male species, organ failure, spontaneous abortions, and many more side effects....

In what is perhaps the most significant breaking news we’ve heard on the GMO front in a long time, an effort has just been announced in California that seeks to gather enough signatures to put an historical initiative on the ballot which would require the labeling of GMOs in foods.

I interviewed Ronnie Cummins from the Organic Consumers Association (www.OrganicConsumers.org), who is a key leader in advocating mandatory GMO labeling. His organization is playing a significant role in helping to get this initiative on the ballot in California.

This is the pathway to victory against GMOs! With this initiative on the ballot, we have a very achievable strategy to deal a death blow to GMOs and restore sanity and integrity to our seeds and food crops.

Listen to the full interview with Ronnie Cummins on SoundCloud:

Highlights from the announcement for mandatory GMO labeling

• This labeling initiative is effectively a “ban” on GMOs, because most consumers simply won’t buy genetically engineered ingredients once they know they are present in conventional foods.

Representing one of the most agriculturally bio-diverse nations in the world, India has become a primary target for biotechnology companies like Monsanto and Cargill to spread their genetically-modified (GM) crops into new markets. However, a recent France 24 report explains that the Indian government has decided to take an offensive approach against this attempted agricultural takeover by suing Monsanto for “biopiracy,” accusing the company of stealing India’s indigenous plants in order to re-engineer them into patented varieties.

And in an attempt to capitalize on the lucrative crop known as Brinjal (Indian eggplant), Monsanto has repeatedly tried to commercially market its own GM variety of brinjal called Bt brinjal. But massive public outcry against planned commercial approval of Monsanto’s “frankencrop” variety in 2010 led to the government banning it for an indefinite period of time.

But Monsanto is still stealing native crops, including brinjal, and quietly working on GM varieties of them in test fields, which is a clear violation of India’s Biological Diversity Act (BDA). So at the prompting of various farmers and activists in India, the Indian government, representing the first time in history a nation that has taken such action, has decided to sue Monsanto....

Eating Healthier, Part 1: Understanding Genetically Modified Foods and Their Dangers

Originally Published on April 2nd, 2011

The adulteration and modification of some of the planet’s most widely used crops has changed our food landscape.  Chemicals, preservatives, genetic modification and low-cost substitutions and fillers have wrecked meals that were once healthy for us.  Stepping inside of a grocery store nowadays, we find ourselves in a dangerous and toxic new world.  The introduction of genetically modified organisms into the food supply in the 1990’s, coupled with rampant use of carcinogens such as aspartame and substitutions like high fructose corn syrup, set up the perfect ingredients to form a deadly concoction known as processed food.  Sadly, this is what encompasses the average American diet.

Genetically modified foods, or GMOs, are now found in approximately 80% of all food in a typical grocery store.  Corn is the most widely grown genetically modified crop next to soy and canola.  And because corn is now the most common ingredient in American food products, it represents a major threat, especially as it relates to the wide-spread use of high fructose corn syrup.

Over the last few years, organic diets and fads have gained popularity. ...

EU Court Rules on GMO Contamination; Opens Door to Biotech Liability

On Sept. 6, the European Union’s top court paved the way for farmers and beekeepers to recoup losses when their crops or honey become genetically contaminated from neighboring GM fields.

The European Court of Justice ruled that all food products containing GMOs – whether intentional or not – must undergo an approval process.

This marks a much stricter view than that being pushed by European Union Commissioner for health and consumer affairs, John Dalli, who wants no regulation of foods genetically contaminated “by accident,” a ludicrous idea given that coexistence ensures genetic contamination.

At the center of the dispute is Bavarian beekeeper Karl Heinz Bablok who joined with several others in suing the state when its research plots of Monsanto’s GM corn, MON 810, contaminated his honey.

In 2008, an administrative court banned Bablok from selling or giving away that honey. But in a bizarre turn, the Augsburg court also ruled that beekeepers have no claim to protection against the growing of GM crops. They immediately filed a new lawsuit. [1]

Discussing today’s ruling, attorneys for the beekeepers noted that they may now have “a claim for damages against a farmer if MON 810 pollen from his cultivation gets into their honey.” [2]

Attorneys Dr Achim Willand and Dr Georg Buchholz explained:

“If the beekeeper can no longer sell his honey, this is considered a major impairment causing a claim for damage....

Bio-Tech Terrorist Monsanto-Spawned Superweeds Growing Three Inches Daily

Posted on Aug 01, 2011 in Health, Food News, & Big Pharma

TruthisTreason.net – Kevin Hayden

Source: Natural News

The proliferation of superweeds — weeds that have mutated to develop resistance to popular herbicides like Monsanto’s Roundup formula — continues to rise. But the individual plants’ overall size and strength is also increasing. According to a series of new studies published in the journal Weed Science, farmers are having more trouble than ever dealing with out-of-control superweeds in their fields, some of which grow up to three inches a day in size, and are so strong and thick that they are destroying farm equipment.

The studies reveal that there are currently at least 21 different weed species known to be resistant to Roundup, also known generically as glyphosate. These species include ragweed, pigweed, horseweed, waterhemp, and ryegrass. Since 2007, the total acreage of farmland known to be infested with superweeds has also jumped more than 450 percent, from 2.4 million acres to 11 million acres, which means that the problem is only going to get exponentially worse.
