Genetically Modified v. Organic Crops
"Genetically engineered products only
hit the shelves in 1992,
they now dominate up to 95%
of specific product markets. Recently, organic farmers have also been
worried about the spread of genetically engineered crops to their
organic product through natural germination processes. Farmers worry
that genetically modified crops will squash their organic seeds and
contaminate their products. Through allowing for the co-existence of
genetically modified and organic crops, these rulings pit technology
against tradition. However, these ideas raise larger questions—can we
control the germination of seeds? Can food be truly organic?"

"The human genome contains about 21,000 protein-encoding genes, but
the total number of proteins in human cells is estimated to be between
250,000 to one million. One gene can encode more than one protein (even
up to 1,000) (From:
Therefore, when a gene is spliced into another
organism’s DNA and activated by the promoter, several things happen.
1) Target gene begins to produce all 1,000's of proteins it is
responsible for – not just the one the researcher is trying to activate.
2) Very aggressive Promoters, such as the Cauliflower Mosaic Virus,
activate not only the target new gene – but many of the genes of the
In potato, for example, only tubers are edible – and the rest of
the plant is toxic to people.
If wrong protein is produced in the wrong part of the plant – plant
may produce the toxin in the tubers.
3) There are many idle genes in every organism. There is no knowledge of
what these genes may produce.
4) Since the Promoter is always on, the host organism is investing
disproportionate percentage of resources into production of unnecessary
proteins, so the nutrient content of the plant drops.

toxicity is 1989 outbreak of previously unknown

This is absolutely separate from the

basic of bodily functions...
myalgia syndrome (EMS) was striking Americans across the country.
Some had died. The connection, it seemed, was that all of the victims
had taken L-tryptophan...
The Tokyo-based petrochemical giant Showa
Denko K. K. The company already controlled more than half of the
American market, but in 1988 and 1989, it sought to boost the efficiency
of its L-tryptophan production. Showa Denko altered its normal
introducing a new,
genetically engineered bacterium called
Strain V...Like other food
Showa Denko had routinely used a fermentation process in which large
quantities of bacteria are grown in vats and the required substance is
extracted and purified. In this case, Showa Denko used Strain V in the
fermentation system to convert nutrients into L-tryptophan...
to U.S. law,
the company was allowed to
sell the L-tryptophan produced in gene-spliced bacteria without any
safety testing because it and other
been selling the supplement produced in non-genetically engineered
bacteria for years without ill effects. The method of production was
considered immaterial. What was important was that the new product was 'substantially
equivalent' to the L-tryptophan that had been sold for
years...Denko’s L-tryptophan was 99.6% pure, well within approved
standards. But the tiny proportion of the compound that was considered
'impure' contained between 30 & 40 different contaminants. One of them,
EBT, attracted particular attention from scientists because it was shown
to cause some of the symptoms of EMS in rats...
By destroying all stocks of the modified bacteria, Showa Denko
eliminated data and destroyed possible evidence that could have been
useful in solving the puzzle and
perhaps finding an answer for those
suffering the toxic effects of L-tryptophan...
Under Canadian law, ingestible substances are either 'food' or
'drugs'. There is NO provision for 'dietary supplements.'
Vitamins and herbs are unregulated, but as such are NOT allowed to claim
therapeutic properties. (The law governing dietary supplements is
currently under review.) Because of its claims of healing benefits,
L-tryptophan would have been considered a drug in Canada and would have
had to meet much more stringent regulations than it did in the United
States. For example, the manufacturer would have been compelled to file
details on its production processes and any changes it made to them.
Perhaps not surprisingly, Showa Denko and the other manufacturers never
bothered to apply for drug status in Canada and so L-tryptophan was not
available for sale north of the U.S. boundary line.
In 1989 tryptophan was available by prescription in Canada from a
company named ICN Canada.
It still is. ICM's
non-genetically-engineered product: Tryptan

preceded with the letter 'L') has never been implicated in any

"That is a major area of contention. The companies keep saying
that this genetically modified DNA is no different from natural DNA.
'DNA is DNA is DNA.' Some pro-GM scientists even say that this is the
ultimate organic molecule. There are a lot of indications that
this genetically modified DNA is completely new, it has never existed in
billions of years of evolution, it’s cobbled together from different
sources, a lot of viral
and bacterial DNA is being used to make it, and
it is unstable and has a propensity to jump again - it is designed to
jump into genomes and to overcome species barriers.
biological species don’t really tend to exchange genes with other
species - 1st of all because there are natural limits to how much they
can exchange, since each species has its own space and time in
In the 2nd place, in the laboratory today there is no limit to what you
You can even take DNA from organisms that have been dead
for 100's of 1,000's of years - from a fossil, from a dead fossil - and
join it up with organisms that exist today.
DNA is actually a very
stable molecule. It can actually persist long after the organism is
dead...Regulators haven’t realized - they haven’t come to grips with
it...These modified genetic materials were designed to overcome the
natural barriers between species. What happens when we eat ordinary
vegetables and animal protein is that the DNA is broken down by our
enzymes. Then, our cells also have enzymes for breaking them down
further, and ultimately they will be nutrition for the cell.
Unfortunately, if you design genetically modified DNA to jump into
genomes and to overcome species barriers, then there is a chance that
this DNA can avoid enzymatic breakdown and get into other unrelated
species. For example, one of the dangers of these organisms is that, as
I said previously, they are mainly made up of genetic material belonging
to viruses and bacteria. So if these genetic materials meet other
viruses and bacteria, they can join up to make new combinations - new
viruses and bacteria that cause diseases and resist medical
treatment...Recombinant: that is, a recombination.
gene transfer and
recombination form the
major process for
generating new viruses and bacteria that cause diseases...
These DNA can also get into
our cells, and the danger of rogue
DNA getting into our cells, or the cells of other mammals, is that they
often contain very aggressive virus promoters. It’s not easy to get a
foreign gene to work in a cell. In order to do that, you really have to
give it a very aggressive gene switch - which is
'promoter' - that says to the cell, 'Copy this gene and make a lot
of the protein that’s involved. Express this gene at a higher level.' In
order to do that they use the promoter from viruses. A virus, as the
name implies, has the ability to hijack the cell to make many copies of
itself, and that is essentially the basic technology that enables many
foreign genes to become aggressive. They put it next to this kind of
aggressive viral promoter. Now, if such an aggressive viral
promoter gets into an alien cell, and if this promoter should work in
that mammalian cell, and if this cell is involved in controlling cell
division, then it could make this cell multiply out of control - and
that’s cancer by another name...
Gene therapy is the genetic modification of human cells, and it uses
techniques and constructs very similar to those used in the genetic
modification of plants and animals.
In gene therapy there are 2 major
side effects that people worry about. One of them is cancer, because if
it gets into the wrong place, it turns on the wrong genes, and you get
cancer. The other concern is the regeneration of live viruses, because
in order to make this foreign DNA go into the genome, very often they
use what is called a 'gene carrier' or a 'vector,' which is
itself a virus, a disarmed virus. Disarmed or not, a virus can still
up genes from our genome or from the cell’s genome and turn back
into a fully armed virus by recombination. Those are the 2 major
acknowledged dangers, or side effects, of gene therapy.
Several years ago a group of scientists in France devised a method where
they would genetically modify bone marrow cells outside the patient.
They took the patient’s own cells, genetically modified them, and then
selected the 'good' transformed cells, the cells that have taken up the
foreign genes - and then put them into the patient. It was hailed as a
great success that avoids the complications I’ve just described.
about a year and a half later, 2 of the 9 successes
developed leukemia. So this is the other problem that we have to worry
Transgenic/GM food safety. Proponents will say, 'The Americans have been
eating it for maybe a decade now, since 1994...You have no labeling.
You don’t even know if you have eaten GM food directly. In any case,
most of the GM goes into feeding your animals (and into factory produced
boxed foods), so at least you’re probably once-removed from direct GM
food. However, the Centers for Disease Control’s own study, published in
1999, found that incidences of food-borne illness have risen from 2-fold
to 10-fold as compared to a 1994 study. That was when the first GM food
(a transgenic tomato - 'Flavor Saver' tomato) was grown and became
In Britain, we do have scientists such as Árpád Pusztai. He was a
senior food scientist in Scotland, and he and his colleagues were
supported by the government to do food safety research. They fed
GM potato to some young rats, and much to their surprise - because he
was actually a supporter of GM foods, or at least he wasn’t hostile -
they found that this GM potato affected every organ system of these
young rats. They recently released some photographs of the stomach
lining and intestinal lining, and it was most dramatic because it
increased the thickness of the lining up to 2 times....
There have been reports of illnesses in some villages, up to 100
villages, in south of
the Philippines that are next to fields of GM
maize...So in the Philippines, a Norwegian scientist who’s actually a
virologist was asked to go and investigate these illnesses. He took
samples of blood from 39 of the villagers and found antibodies to the
foreign gene expressed in the GM maize grown nearby - and this
apparently happened again this growing season. There’s another case in Essel, Germany, in which 12 dairy cows died between 2001 and 2002 after
eating transgenic maize - another transgenic maize, not the type that
was growing in the Philippines. That case hasn’t been investigated to
this day, but this maize has since been withdrawn by Syngenta - it’s
Animals tend to avoid GM crops if they have the choice...The experts

We produced a report called
The Case for a GM-Free, Sustainable World
in which we
propose that there should be a global ban or withdrawal of all GM
crops...published by Vital Health in the United States...
There is now a very, very strong global uprising against the
introduction of GM crops that was brought to a head a couple of years
ago, when Zambia refused to accept GM maize as food aid from the United
States and opted instead to purchase surplus food from other parts of
their country, and now it is doing so well that it is exporting food
surpluses to Angola...
GM technology bypasses natural reproduction altogether. You don’t even
need reproduction, you see. So to say that this is no different from
natural breeding methods
is really bending science...
Science is no
different from any other form of knowledge.

"In July 2003, a
farmer living in a small village in the south of Mindanao Island of
The Philippines, found himself and his entire family suddenly
falling ill with fever and respiratory, intestinal and skin
ailments. They were not alone; at least 51 residents of Sitio
Kalyong (Barangay Landan, Polomolok, South Cotabato Province) had
similar complaints at around the same time. They all lived within
100 m of a field planted with GM maize, and their illnesses
coincided with the GM maize flowering time.
Another resident of Sitio Kalyong, said  that the
pollen made him dizzy, gave him severe headaches, chest pains
and caused him to vomit. The field in Sitio Kalyong belonged to a
local official who bought five bags of Monsanto's Bt maize seed
(Dekalb818YG with Cry1Ab from the soil bacterium Bacillus
thuringiensis ), enough to plant 5 hectares. He paid 4,500 pesos per
bag, which was more than twice as much as the non-GM variety at
2,200 pesos per bag...
In October 2003, blood samples were taken from the affected
villagers who still had symptoms, which were then frozen and
analyzed. Antibodies to the Bt toxin Cry1Ab expressed in the
GM maize were found in all the blood samples taken from the 38
Many if not all of the
villagers exposed to GM-maize pollen in
2003 have remained ill
to this day. Furthermore, there have been
5 unexplained deaths in the village. In total,
96 people got sick.
In addition, 9 horses, 4 water buffalos, and 37 chickens died
soon after feeding on GM maize...
More illnesses were reported in July 2004
when GM maize fields in 4 separate villages of Mindanao came into flower, I was told by a
farmer who fell ill in 2003. 32 people in Tuka, Bagumbayan, Sultan
Kudarat, suffered from headache, stomach-ache, dizziness, diarrhoea,
vomiting and difficulty in breathing. About 30 ha were planted with
Dekalb 818YG, but most of the residents affected were tenants, and
hence not aware that what they planted was Bt maize, or even what Bt
maize really was. Most farmers in Bagumbayan were aware of 'Bt
maize' based only on what Monsanto has told them. Bagumbayan is a
'pet area' of Monsanto, after having won an award in 1999 for being
the 2nd biggest user of Power herbicide in the world. In South
Sepaka, Sto. Nino, South Cotabato, nine were reported sick, but 31
signed a petition circulated by a member of the Parish Social Action
Center, claiming they fell ill during the flowering period of the Bt
maize. Symptoms included red eyes, dizziness and weakness. Around 2
ha (acres) were planted with Pioneer 30Y 50, a Bt maize. The Bt
maize belonged to a seed dealer who apparently failed to inform the
village chairman that he had planted Bt maize. Most of the residents
temporarily left their houses.
Around 20 children (aged 5-10 years) got sick during the flowering
period of the Bt maize Dekalb 818YG planted near the elementary
school in Magallon, M'lang, North Cotabato. They showed symptoms
similar to those in other locations: cough, sneezing, asthma and
difficulty in breathing. An authorized dealer had planted 10 ha
without informing the community that it was Bt maize, but did say
that the maize could not be roasted and eaten. One man ate a cob and
got diarrhea; the same happened to 4 goats that ate the
maize...Damning evidence against the safety of GM food and feed:

to change all that, and Hungarian born chemist Dr. Arpad Pusztai was
their man to do it. He beat out 27 competing scientists for a £1.6
million grant to develop a safety testing protocol; it was supposed to
eventually be required for all GM food approvals in Europe...But when
Dr. Pusztai fed the GM potato to rats using his new safety testing
protocol, he got a shock. Nearly every system in the rats' bodies was
adversely affected several in just 10 days.
Their brains, livers, and testicles were smaller, while their pancreases

related to the immune system, including the thymus and the spleen,

Interview Transcript 3/14/2011
- "Dr. Shiv Chopra is a world
author and public speaker. As a former employee of
Health Canada (Canadian
equivalent of the US FDA) for 35 years, he was
the Senior Scientific Advisor for the
regulatory assessment of food and
drugs, including new vaccines. When he changed
job titles from human
prescription drugs to the Bureau of Veterinary Drugs, the 1st
landed on his desk was Eli Lilly's application to use rBGH in Canada.
In this interview he discusses subjects covered in his...book,
Corrupt to the Core,
which chronicles his many decades fighting for
scientific principles against profit-hungry corporations and ultimately
against his own bosses
and the Canadian government itself."

Contribution of Agrobacterium to Morgellons Disease
"Agro-bacterium is extensively exploited as a means to insert
foreign genes into plants. Agrobacterium was found in people with
the Morgellons condition, but not in the healthy control group...Morgellons
skin fibers 'appear' to contain cellulose. This observation
indicates possible involvement
of pathogenic Agrobacterium, which is
known to produce cellulose fibers at infection sites within host
tissues." (We would expect that science would be able
to test for presence or absence of cellulose!)

The Daily Sheeple via
GMOs Could Cause ?Irreversible Termination
of life? on Earth, risk expert warns
(GMO's act like invasive weeds.)
"When discussing the issues surrounding
genetically modified organisms (GMOs),
that is, organisms bearing the
genetic traits of other species or bacteria, the focus
is typically on
how safe (or unsafe) these novel, food-like products are for humans.
distinguished risk engineer and 2-time best-selling author Nassim
an even bigger problem with GMOs is their threat to the
planet, and the statistical
likelihood that they will eventually lead to
the collapse of life on Earth.
In a new study, which is still in draft form, this professor of risk
New York University uses statistical analysis to make
the case that GMOs, by their
very nature, will disrupt the ecosystems of
this planet in ways that mankind is only
just beginning to comprehend.
Because they represent a systemic risk rather than
a localized one.
GM traits are known to spread unconstrained throughout
GMOs will eventually breach the so-called 'ecocide barrier,'
to catastrophic ecosystem failure.
'There are mathematical limitations to predictability in a complex
system, ‘in the
wild,’ which is why focusing on difference between
local (or isolated) and systemic
threats is a central aspect of our
warnings,' Taleb is quoted as saying by
noting that it’s essentially impossible to contain the inevitable
of GMO traits far and wide.
“The [precautionary principle] is not there to make life comfortable,
rather to avoid
a certain class of what is called in probability and insurance ‘ruin’
write Taleb and his colleagues in their paper. “For nature, the ‘ruin’
an irreversible termination
of life at some scale, which could be the planet.”
GMOs are not ‘scientific,’ and nearly every argument used in their
defense is flawed
Besides using math and risk-based
analysis to show that GMOs simply cannot coexist with nature as is
commonly claimed — GMOs will eventually contaminate the natural world
around them — Taleb also deconstructs many of the “arguments” used by
GMO advocates to defend the commercial use of untested transgenic
materials, including the oft-repeated lie that
no different than natural organisms.
'Genetically Modified Organisms, GMOs fall squarely under [the
precautionary principle]… because of their systemic risk on the system,”
explains Taleb. “Top-down modifications to the system (through GMOs) are
categorically and statistically different from bottom up ones (regular
farming, progressive tinkering with crops, etc.).'
'There is no comparison between the tinkering of selective breeding and
the top-down engineering of taking a gene from an organism and putting
it into another. Saying that such a product is natural misses the
statistical process by which things become ‘natural.'
Taleb also draws attention to the deceitful strategies of biotechnology
companies in trying to legitimize the continued use of GMOs through
fear. Claiming that famine, starvation and widespread crop failures will
occur if we all fail to adopt GMOs is no different than playing Russian
roulette in order to get out of poverty, claims Taleb — such an approach
is hardly scientific or logically sound, and yet these and other tactics
are the basis of the pro-GMO agenda.
'What people miss is that the modification of crops impacts everyone and
exports the error from the local to the global,' concludes Taleb and his
colleagues. 'I do not wish to pay — or have my descendants pay — for
errors by executives of
Monsanto. We should exert
there — our non-naive version — simply because we
would only discover errors after considerable and irreversible

Peritonitis may be
caused or aggravated due to GMO diet.
Perforation of part of the gastrointestinal tract is the most common
cause of peritonitis.
Modified Organisms (GMOs) were first introduced into the food supply in
the 1995...'GM foods and disease is confirmed in several animal
studies... Because GM foods have not been properly tested for human
consumption, and because there is ample evidence of probable harm,' they
call on physicians to educate the public and warn their patients to
avoid GM foods...The decisions made by the
FDA concerning genetically modified food (GMOs) have been based on
politics and NOT science...A federal law was written in 1958 banning
chemical additives in food that are known carcinogens. In 1988, Taylor
wrote a paper arguing that this law can be interpreted to allow
carcinogenic chemicals in food so long as they are present in low
amounts presenting minimal risk. FDA policy states that GMO crops are
not even considered additives, but they are 'substantially equivalent'
to conventional crops and they need no separate category...
Perforation of part of the
tract is the most common cause (of medical problems triggered by GMO)...
The intestinal lining of
livestock in the U.S. is so poor these days that meat processors import
sausage casings from New Zealand. According to Dr. Huber, 'When you look
at the intestine of those pigs fed the GMO feed, the lining is
deteriorated and the critical microbial balance is drastically
'With respect to
transferred genetic material (nucleic acids),
generally FDA does NOT
anticipate that transferred genetic material would itself be subject to
food additive regulation. Nucleic acids are present in the
cells of every living organism, including every plant and animal used
for food by humans or animals, and do NOT raise a safety concern as a
component of food. In
regulatory terms, such material is presumed to be GRAS.
Although the guidance provided in
section VII calls for a good understanding of the identity of the
genetic material being transferred through genetic modification
techniques, FDA does NOT
expect that there will be any serious question about the GRAS status of
transferred genetic material'...
Not only are the (inserted) bacteria genes themselves (sometimes DNA
from other species) potentially toxic, but the plants can be sprayed
directly with herbicides; the herbicide-resistant plants absorb the
poisons and (both the livestock and we) eat them. It's difficult to
understand how this can be considered 'essentially' the same as plant

PRAYER - Grace at meals - Father God, in Jesus name, we cancel and reverse
harm to our bodies and DNA. We replace all damage with
Your health and healing.
We command our DNA to come into alignment
with Your DNA. May our bodies,
spirits, and souls receive Your
blood transfusion, thus Your health and well being,
for Your glory and
purposes, on earth as it is in heaven. Thanks Lord. Amen.
