Two very important articles pertaining to our health situation: Scientist writes to Secretary of Ag regarding new pathogen being generated by round-up ready crops: http://farmandranchfreedom.org/gmo-miscarriages Bt crops also causing major disease/allergies: http://appprecautionaryprinciple.wo...ound-in-women-and-fetuses-by-jeffrey-m-smith/ excerpts: From Prf. Huber: "For the past 40 years, I have been a scientist in the professional and military agencies that evaluate and prepare for natural and manmade biological threats, including germ warfare and disease outbreaks. Based on this experience, I believe the threat we are facing from this pathogen is unique and of a high risk status. In laymans terms, it should be treated as an emergency. This previously unknown organism is only visible under an electron microscope (36,000X), with an approximate size range equal to a medium size virus. It is able to reproduce and appears to be a micro-fungal-like organism. If so, it would be the first such micro-fungus ever identified. There is strong evidence that this infectious agent promotes diseases of both plants and mammals, which is very rare." From the Smith article: "In the human study, some of the subjects were found to have Roundup Ready gut bacteria! This means that sometime in the past, from eating one or more meals of GM soybeans, the gene that had been discovered in the chemical waste dump and forced into the soy, had transferred into the DNA of bacteria living inside their intestinesand continued to function. That means that long after we stop eating GMOs, we may still have dangerous GM proteins produced continuously inside of us." "When natural Bt-toxin was fed to mice, they had tissue damage, immune responses as powerful as cholera toxin, and even started reacting to other foods that were formerly harmless. Farm workers exposed to Bt also showed immune responses. " "In government-sponsored research in Italy, mice fed Monsantos Bt corn showed a wide range of immune responses. Their elevated IgE and IgG antibodies, for example, are typically associated with allergies and infections. The mice had an increase in cytokines, which are associated with allergic and inflammatory responses. The specific cytokines (interleukins) that were elevated are also higher in humans who suffer from a wide range of disorders, from arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease, to MS and cancer." -------------------------- ETA: Huber wrote to the Sec of Ag, urging him to stop the deregulation of GMO crops. He subsequently approved the GMO alfalfa and the lifting of the so-called "buffer" zones.
