Bayer vows not to use reputation to impose Monsanto’s GM crops on Europe

Bayer’s chief said the company is not planning to take advantage of its own good reputation to forcefully introduce genetically modified crops to Europe against its inhabitants’ will after it took over of US seed and pesticide manufacturer Monsanto.

“We aren't taking over Monsanto to establish genetically modified plants in Europe,” Bayer’s chief executive Werner Baumann told the Germany’s Süddeutsche Zeitung newspaper on Monday.

According to Baumann, it’s “not the plan” to use Bayer’s good reputation to impose GM plants on Europe.

Award Winning Author and Scientist Dr. Vandana Shiva

India is steeped in synthesised controversy, created by Monsanto on the first GM crop supposedly-approved for commercialisation in India. Engaged in litigation on many fronts, Monsanto is trying to subvert our Patent Law, our Plant Variety and Farmers Rights Act, our Essential Commodities Act , our Anti Monopoly Act (Competition Act). It is behaving as if there is no Parliament, no Democracy, no Sovereign Laws in India to which it is subject. Or, it simply does not have any regard for them.Vandana-Shiva.jpg

In another theatre, Monsanto and Bayer are merging. They were one as MOBAY (MonsantoBayer), part of the Poison Cartel of IG Farben. Controlling stakes of both Corporations lies with the same private equity firms.

The expertise of these companies are those of war. IG Farben – Hitler’s economic power and pre-war Germany’s highest foreign exchange earner – was also a foreign intelligence operation. Herman Shmitz was President of IG Farben, Shmitz’s nephew Max Ilgner was a Director of IG Farben, while Max’s brother Rudolph Ilgner handled the New York arm of the ‘VOWI‘ network as vice president of CHEMNYCO.

Paul Warburg – brother of Max Warburg (Board of Directors, Farben Aufsichsrat) – was one of the founding members of the Federal Reserve System in the United States. He was also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Max Warburg and Hermann Schmitz played a central role in the Farben empire. Other “guiding hands” of Farben Vorstand included Carl Bosch, Fritz ter Meer, Kurt Oppenheim and George von Schnitzler. Every one of them were adjudged ‘War Criminals’ after World War II, except Paul Warburg.

Monsanto and Bayer have a long history. They made explosives and lethally poisonous gases using shared technologies and sold them to both sides in both World Wars. The same war chemicals were bought by the Allied Powers and the Axis Powers, from the same manufacturers, with money borrowed from the same federated reserve bank.

[5-12-16] Today, the FDA is requiring labeling changes for antibacterial drugs called fluoroquinolones, including an updated boxed warning, stating that the serious side effects associated with fluoroquinolones generally outweigh the benefits for patients with sinusitis, bronchitis and uncomplicated urinary tract infections who have other treatment options. For patients with these conditions, fluoroquinolones should be reserved for those who do not have alternative treatment options.

Before you pop open a bottle of California Merlot, there is something you should know: trace amounts of glyphosate, the primary toxic chemical found in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, have been found in 100% of California wines tested by the national GMO awareness group, Moms Across America.

Scientists suggest that cancer is man-made

| | Comments (0)

Cancer is a modern, man-made disease caused by environmental factors such as pollution and diet, a study review by University of Manchester scientists has strongly suggested.

Their study of remains and literature from ancient Egypt and Greece and earlier periods – carried out at Manchester’s KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology and published in Nature Reviews Cancer – includes the first histological diagnosis of cancer in an Egyptian mummy.

Finding only one case of the disease in the investigation of hundreds of Egyptian mummies, with few references to cancer in literary evidence, proves that cancer was extremely rare in antiquity. The disease rate has risen massively since the Industrial Revolution, in particular childhood cancer – proving that the rise is not simply due to people living longer.

Professor Rosalie David, at the Faculty of Life Sciences, said: “In industrialised societies, cancer is second only to cardiovascular disease as a cause of death. But in ancient times, it was extremely rare. There is nothing in the natural environment that can cause cancer. So it has to be a man-made disease, down to pollution and changes to our diet and lifestyle.”

She added: “The important thing about our study is that it gives a historical perspective to this disease. We can make very clear statements on the cancer rates in societies because we have a full overview. We have looked at millennia, not one hundred years, and have masses of data.”

WHO Backs Trials of Bacteria, Genetic Modification to Fight Zika Mosquitoes

Methods will be used in combination with other traditional tools

By Kate Kelland

LONDON (Reuters) - The World Health Organization (WHO) called on Friday for pilot projects to test two experimental ways to curb Zika-carrying mosquitoes, including testing the release of genetically modified insects and bacteria that stop their eggs hatching.

Zika virus, which is sweeping through the Americas, is transmitted primarily by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, which the U.N. health body has described as an "opportunistic and tenacious menace".

Bill Gates: can we have an honest conversation about GMOs?


Some of the world's most powerful figures tout the benefits of GMOs, writes Stacy Malkan, but what's the real story? Facts on the ground expose the PR spin, half truths and outright propaganda that has come to dominate a public conversation that is not so much about engineering genes, but engineering truth for the benefit of multinational corporations.


The food industry's fight to stop Vermont from labeling genetically engineered foods is heading to the floor of the US Senate.

Curb Antibiotic Use in Farm Animals

Curb Antibiotic Use in Farm Animals
New guidelines to curb the overuse of drugs in food animals are inadequate to deal with a growing crisis

In 1945 Alexander Fleming, the man who discovered penicillin, warned that overuse of his miracle drug could make bacteria immune to it. He was right—and not just about penicillin: the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has estimated that antibiotic-resistant bacteria infect more than two million people a year, at least 23,000 of whom die. A significant part of that overuse, the cdc says, involves feeding the drugs to the animals we eat. Farmers do this not to cure or prevent disease but simply to make livestock grow bigger and faster.

Actor Mark Ruffalo Calls Out Monsato: You Are Poisoning People


It’s not an ordinary routine in which someone gets to meet the head of Monsanto, therefore, Mark Ruffalo was aware and knew he had to take advantage of speaking up for millions when he addressed the company’s CEO, Hugh Grant.

Before a segment for the movie Spotlight with Mike Rezendes, Ruffalo was in the green room watching Grant on screen giving “slippery non-answer[s] to every question he was asked.”

Wag the Zika...

Wag the Zika...
By KP Stoller, MD – www.incurable-me.com

While the situation with the Zika virus is still evolving, there is a real danger in blaming a lone virus for any problem. It is not unlike the obfuscation of the real problem with Polio, where a single enterovirus (there are many) took the blame for a paralysis that would not have been possible if the population had not been well applied with DDT.

While that assessment of the Polio epidemic may be controversial, the cases of non-poliovirus caused Acute Flaccid Paralysis climb in parts of the world that apply pesticides with abandon. I wrote about this in the paper: AD, AFP, ALS and DDT published last year http://journalijcar.org/sites/default/files/issue-files/0151.pdf
