GM crops cause liver and kidney damage

March 17, 2010 by: E. Huff, staff writer

(NaturalNews) A report published in the International Journal of Microbiology has verified once again that Monsanto’s genetically modified (GM) crops are causing severe health problems. A legal challenge issued against Monsanto forced the multi-national agriculture giant to release raw data revealing that animals fed its patented GM corn suffered liver and kidney damage within just three months.

Adding to the mounting evidence that GM crops are dangerous all around, this information provides a damning indictment against Monsanto which continually insists that its GM products are safe. Not only are GM crops proving disastrous for the environment, but study after study, including those conducted by Monsanto itself, is showing that GM foods are detrimental to health.

Monsanto’s data indicated that the company had conducted tests on three varieties of its GM corn, two of which contain the dangerous Bt protein, and one designed specifically to resist Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide. All three are widely grown in the United States while only one is currently grown in Europe.

Dr. Gilles-Eric Seralini, a French researcher from the University of Caen, was tasked with examining the data and providing a review. While stopping short of declaring GM crops to be toxic, he did emphasize that chronic negative effects were apparent and that there were "statistically significant" indications of kidney and liver damage.

The specific effects observed in test rats included a buildup of hormones in the blood, indicating that their liver and kidneys were not functioning properly. One variety of the corn led to elevated blood sugar levels and increased triglyceride levels in female rats given it.

Dr. Seralini concluded that, because GM crops are foreign substances that have never been a part of a normal diet, there is no telling what the long-term effects of consumption will be on people. In animals, significant disruption of normal bodily function has been observed even in the short term.

Genetically manipulated food crops are not fit for human consumption and should not be classified as food. No legitimate study has ever proven them to be safe or nutritious. The burden of proof is on the producers of such crops to verify their safety and, to date, all data has revealed that they are unsafe. Claims that GM foods will end world hunger are baseless, propagated only by those that have a financial interest in converting the world’s food supply to their own patented varieties in order to control it.

Health Alliance says EU vitamin laws must change track

Alliance for Natural Health study says risk / benefit approach needed for vitamin and mineral food supplements

A study just published in a leading peer reviewed journal explains how the European Commission’s proposed approach to limiting maximum doses of
vitamins and minerals in food supplements across Europe is not scientifically rational…

… This latest study shows that the risk‐based approaches under consideration by European authorities, if turned into law as proposed, will deny the majority of
people from consuming beneficial quantities of vitamins and minerals…

Chipped Pets Develop Fast-Growing, Lethal Tumours

Owners, Medical Reports Point to Link Between RFID Chips and Cancers in Canines

Highly aggressive tumors developed around the microchip implants of two American dogs, killing one of the pets and leaving the other terminally ill. Their owners have suggested a link between the chips and the formation of the fast-growing cancers…

… In 2007, The Associated Press reported on a series of veterinary and toxicology studies that found that microchip implants had "induced" malignant tumors in some lab animals. Published in veterinary and toxicology journals between 1996 and 2006, the studies found that between 1 and 10 percent of lab mice and rats injected with microchips developed malignant tumors, most of them encasing the implants.

Re SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY COMMITTEE REPORT ON HOMEOPATHY

Early Day Motion 908

SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY COMMITTEE REPORT ON HOMEOPATHY
23.02.2010

That this House expresses concern at the conclusions of the Science and Technology Committee’s Report, Evidence Check on Homeopathy; notes that the Committee took only oral evidence from a limited number of witnesses, including known critics of homeopathy Tracy Brown, the Managing Director of Sense About Science, and journalist Dr Ben Goldacre, who have no expertise in the subject; believes that evidence should have been heard from primary care trusts that commission homeopathy, doctors who use it in a primary care setting, and other relevant organisations, such as the Society of Homeopaths, to provide balance; observes that the Committee did not consider evidence from abroad from countries such as France and Germany, where provision of homeopathy is far more widespread than in the UK, or from India, where it is part of the health service; regrets that the Committee ignored the 74 randomised controlled trials comparing homeopathy with placebo, of which 63 showed homeopathic treatments were effective, and that the Committee recommends no further research; further notes that 206 hon. Members signed Early Day Motion No. 1240 in support of NHS homeopathic hospitals in Session 2006-07; and calls on the Government to maintain its policy of allowing decision-making on individual clinical interventions, including homeopathy, to remain in the hands of local NHS service providers and practitioners who are best placed to know their community’s needs.

Corrupt Scientist who lied about vaccines and autism vanishes with millions

By F. William Engdahl  12 March 2010

A Danish psychiatrist (sic!) who played a central role in attempting to whitewash the role of mercury preservatives used in vaccines and the explosive rise in infant autism has apparently stolen $2 million of government research money and vanished. It is yet another black mark on the entire corruption edifice behind the pharma industry and their misuse of vaccines.

According to a report from American lawyer and autism activist, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., son of the assassinated Senator, Dr Poul Thorsen was given millions of dollars by the apparently equally corrupt US Government Center for Disease Control (CDC) to try to disprove the links between infant vaccination and the explosive growth of child autism. Kennedy, who is Chairman of the Waterkeeper Alliance and a law professor at Pace University, has been a prominent critic of the use of mercury-based Thimerosal as a preservative in vaccines given to infants.

Kennedy’s prominent claims and independent statements from leading scientists led to a ban on mercury in US vaccines. However, ever since the CDC and the vaccine industry have tried to claim that Thimerosal is harmless. The key figure in that effort was Thorsen.

Report reveals that one percent of US children, and growing, have autism

There has been a 600% increase in prevalence over the last two decades. From 1975 1 in 5000 affected, in 2009 it was 1 in 110!

http://www.autismspeaks.org/press/cdc_autism_prevalence_1_in_110.php

(Rates now similar in UK)

March 06, 2010  by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

(NaturalNews) The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has issued a new report showing that one out of every 110 children in America today have some form of autism. With an estimated three-quarters of a million children somewhere on the autism spectrum, child advocacy group Autism Speaks is calling on the federal government to increase research efforts to combat the disease.

The report, published in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report illustrates a 57-percent increase in autism cases between 2002 and 2006. A staggering 600-percent increase in the disease has occurred over the past two decades, plaguing boys more often than girls. Roughly one out of every 70 boys currently has some form of autism…

… For every child that gets diagnosed with autism, there are parents who wonder, "Did vaccines cause this?"

Rates of autism have skyrocketed in the last two decades, causing increasing numbers of parents to wonder what’s behind the disturbing trend. Autism clearly has something to do with neurological problems, and it’s entirely reasonable to suspect that the inflammatory chemicals used in vaccines as adjuvants may play a significant role in causing autism.

There may be other causes, too, such as exposure to pesticides, heavy metals, chemical solvents and the toxic chemicals used in personal care products. I rarely see children that aren’t bathed in toxic shampoos, skin lotions, sunscreens and soaps. The antibacterial ingredient in soap is a neurotoxic chemical, and even more neurotoxins are found in the food supply.

Autism could simply be the result of a cumulative burden of neurotoxic chemicals from multiple sources: Vaccines, consumer products, foods, medicines, household cleaners and more.
