The Queensland University of Technology (QUT) had previously signed an agreement with India's department of biotechnology to invest in a four-year project to develop GMO iron-rich bananas . Now, a researcher at the QUT has led a scientific effort to create GMO bananas with funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The world's first human trial of pro-vitamin A-enriched banana is underway in the United States.

The QUT project, led by Professor James Dale and backed with close to $10 million from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, is claimed to be one of the most prominent biofortification projects in the world today.

Crimes Committed by Monsanto

Monsanto, Crimes?

Strong words they are. Something very peculiar that I must report. I have traveled all over this great country of ours (the USA) attempting to find someone who could tell me anything positive about Monsanto. I’m not the only one. If I did find someone, I had only later come to find out that they were indirectly on the Monsanto payroll.

Despite this voluntary and objective conviction, all the reporting and following of Monsanto leads me to do a reality check once a year. The writing below was produced in the 1990′s and it’s strange to read. Strange because the predictions in the writing of what’s to come have indeed happened.

I ask myself, “has Monsanto really committed any crimes?”

For example, so what if they’re methods for food production, among other things, result in the poisoning of human beings over their life span – you still get to live right?

You are insane if you are drinking Biotech's GMO-infused Kool-Aid. Here's why...

Let's put aside the debate about antigenic proteins introduced by transgenes in GMO crops. Transgenes are genes from species that are not naturally present in crops of feed or food importance, e.g. spider genes , bacterial genes, viral genes , etc. These transgenes are capable of producing proteins in the plants that have never been in the human diet over the course of human evolution, stretching back thousands, even millions of years. GM proponents and regulators claim pseudo-scientifically that these novel new GM foods are 'substantially equivalent' to conventional ones, despite a lack of human clinical toxicology studies to prove it; or, they claim that these proteins are inconsequential and do not represent a threat to human health, or the health of the biosphere as whole because they say so – a plea to their own self-appointed, baseless authority.

It has come to light that the U.S. government is withholding $277 million in aid money from El Salvador in order to pressure it to accept Monsanto's GM seeds.

The President of the El Salvadoran Center for Appropriate Technologies (CESTA), Ricardo Navarro, has demanded that the U.S. Ambassador to El Salvador, Mari Carmen Aponte, stops pressurizing the Government of El Salvador to buy Monsanto's GM seeds rather than non-GMO seeds from domestic suppliers.

"I would like to tell the U.S. Ambassador to stop pressuring the Government (of El Salvador) to buy 'improved' GM seeds," said Navarro, which is only of benefit to U.S. multinationals and is to the detriment of local seed production, Verdad Digital reported last week .

"Could you please make sure the eggs aren't runny? I'm pregnant."

At their first prenatal appointment, pregnant women are doled out a list of NO's including deli meats, fish, and unpasteurized cheese. There is a growing awareness of the fact that this list may be dangerously NON EXHAUSTIVE (and largely misguided, especially when it comes to unpasteurized dairy and eggs).

Even a recent, bold pronouncement by the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynecology , attempted to sound the alarm about chemical exposures with recommendations for "unproven" but potentially harmful exposures. They describe the importance of considering chemicals in personal care products, over the counter medications and supplements, metals and industrial pollutants in fish, and pesticides. However, they dilute their message by making statements such as "Realistically, pesticides are so rigorously regulated that human exposure via food residues is usually minimal, even in non–organic products."

It's been estimated that mycotoxins infect around 25% of the world's cereal crop. Mycotoxins include over 300 toxic compounds produced when certain molds or fungi infect crops.

A new study shows that breakfast cereals can be a significant source of these toxins. Researchers in Pakistan collected 237 breakfast cereal samples and analyzed them for 3 different types of mycotoxins. They tested for aflatoxins (AFs), ochratoxin A (OTA), and zearalenone (ZEA). They found these toxins in about half the breakfast cereals tested.[i]

Most of us would no doubt change a few things about ourselves if we could. Clearer skin, taller, a better shaped nose. Many of us would even more likely wish to change our health disposition if we have a genetic predisposition to cancer, heart problems, or other diseases. Yet, how far would we go to actually achieve these changes? What about genetic modification of human beings? The concept of genetic modification or eugenics rubs a lot of people the wrong way, including within the scientific community. For many, it has a somewhat creepy undertone to it and echoes of the genetic experimentation so disturbingly carried out under the Hitler regime. Disturbing or not, this human genetic modification is already happening.

Reports reveal that the first genetically engineered babies have been ‘created’. 30 so-far healthy babies born as a result of a genetic alteration experiment represent a unique disturbance of natural human genetic information. The researchers were led by fertility pioneer Professor Jacques Cohen.

GMO Human Embryos Have Already Been Created

A meeting at the FDA on experiments to create GMO humans has brought disturbing information to light. Action Alert!

Today, the US Food and Drug Administration held day one of a public meeting outlining the creation of genetically modified humans. These experiments won’t take place in the distant future. In fact, GMO embryos have already been created via in vitro experiments.

Specifically, the FDA is discussing the genetic manipulation of human eggs and embryos in order to prevent inherited mitochondrial disease and treat infertility. The GMO techniques under consideration include manipulation at the mitochondrial level to replace or augment mutant rDNA and methods that could create babies with three parents.

While the FDA has stated that the agency “recognizes” that there are “ethical and social policy issues” to be considered—and despite the fact that forty-four countries have already banned this kind of genetic manipulation—the FDA won’t bother to discuss if human clinical trials should take place (that’s considered to be “outside the scope” of the meeting). Instead, they’ll outline how such trials should be conducted.

A new study published in the January issue of International Journal of Toxicology titled, "Glyphosate Commercial Formulation Causes Cytotoxicity, Oxidative Effects, and Apoptosis on Human Cells: Differences With its Active Ingredient, " raises renewed concern that formulations of the world's most popular herbicide glyphosate (e.g. Roundup), used primarily in the production of GM food, represent a serious human health threat.
