GMO Opposition on the Rise - NewsGrabs Thursday, 25 June 2009

US Opposition to GMOs Gathers Momentum
Great upheavals may be afoot in the United States, the world's leader in genetic modification (GM), and biggest producer of GM crops. Within the past several months, doctors have issued a strong statement calling for a moratorium on GM foods on grounds of safety, and scientists have declared GM crops an agronomic failure.

Eleven EU Member States Want Right to Ban GMOs
The paper was co-written by Austria, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Slovenia and the Netherlands.

"Given the unsatisfactory situation and the negative attitude towards GMOs of large parts of the population in many member states, time has come to find a new approach to deal with the authorisation and use of GMOs in agriculture," it said. "The legally soundest solution we envisage is a set of minor amendments of relevant EU legislation, which should introduce the right of an individual member state to restrict or prohibit indefinitely the cultivation of authorised GMOs on its territory," said the paper, obtained by Reuters.

Global Rejection of Genetically Engineered Wheat
In light of our existing experience with genetic engineering, and recognizing the global consumer rejection of genetically engineered wheat, we restate our definitive opposition to GE wheat and our commitment to stopping the commercialization of GE traits in our wheat crops. We are committed to working with farmers, civil society groups and Indigenous peoples across the globe as we travel the road towards global food sovereignty.

Video: The Risks of Genetically Modified Foods
The Health Dangers of Genetically Engineered Foods and their Cover-up
A talk by Jeffrey M. Smith, author of the book Seeds of Deception
The presentation was organized by The Campaign to Label Genetically Engineered Foods. It is presented here by as a series of six 10-minute videos.

Vitamins / minerals reduce cancer risk, may lengthen life & prevent bone loss
Why are antioxidants and other essential nutrients, in food supplement form, being targeted and restricted by regulators? Why are we being told there are safety issues in consuming more beta carotene daily than that contained in one carrot, or more selenium daily than that contained in more than one third of a brazil nut, while such foods may be eaten in unrestricted quantities?

It looks very much as though it is less about the safety of these nutrients, and more about the profits of big food and pharma corporations. Surely we should be able to trust that food safety authorities such as EFSA and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are unbiased and independent?

Well, personally I believe that those 'authorities' are deeply in the pockets of big food and pharma corporations and their lobbyists ... that they have been fed - together with the cash, the paid weekend trips and the nice words - a crock of you-know-what about what is healthy and what isn't...

Green tea 'slows prostate cancer'
Green tea has been linked to a positive effect on a wide range of conditions, including heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer's disease.

The research, in the US journal Cancer Prevention Research, found a significant fall in certain markers which indicate cancer development.

Weekly curry 'may fight dementia'
The key ingredient [in curry powder] is curcumin, a component of the spice turmeric. Curcumin appears to prevent the spread of amyloid protein plaques - thought to cause dementia - in the brain.

"You can modify a mouse so that at about 12 months its brain is riddled with plaques. If you feed this rat a curcumin-rich diet it dissolves these plaques. The same diet prevented younger mice from forming new plaques."

Aspartame to be investigated after decade of claims it harms health
'The [UK Food Standards] Agency's view remains that aspartame can be consumed safely and we are not recommending any changes to its current use.

'However, we know that some people consider they react badly to consuming this sweetener so we think it is important to increase our knowledge about what is happening.'

The pilot study will start next month and will be used to inform the design and feasibility of a proposed study led by the European Food Safety Authority.

If you have had a bad reaction to consuming aspartame, please do leave a comment at the article as a first step...

The FDA's Cheerios Charade
A June 21 editorial in the Washington Times made the point that it was the accuracy of claim placed on the side of the Cheerios box promoting the cereal's cholesterol-lowering properties that did it in, not false statements or misrepresentation. Apparently, the term "coronary heart disease" was way too specific for tender eyes at the FDA, as opposed to plain vanilla "heart disease," and thus General Mills, Inc. was slapped with a mandate to obtain an approved drug application in order to market Cheerios legally.

Why are you so sick?
(link from - blog censored by Blogger. Check out his other site at )
After generations of trying unsuccessfully to remove bacteria, mold, weeds, insects, arachnids, rodents and many other pest problems from our homes, buildings, yards, pets, fields, orchards, and groves; we still are continuing to only use/misuse many different volatile pesticide POISONS to try to take care of these pest problems. Now, these dangerous pesticides have polluted our soil, food and every living thing including your body. Pesticide POISONS have been proven to increase the risk of different cancers, fatigue and muscle weakness along with endocrine disturbances, cognitive dysfunction, autism, chemical sensitivity, fibromyalgia, etc.. It now costs over 700 billion dollars per year to try to "treat" environmentally caused diseases just in the United States and Canada.

More Evidence Links Pesticides to Parkinson's
French researchers found that among nearly 800 adults with and without Parkinson's, agricultural workers exposed to pesticides -- including insecticides, weed killers and fungicides -- were at greater risk of the disease.

The risk climbed in tandem with the amount of time a worker was exposed, strengthening the case for a cause-effect relationship, according to the researchers.

Weed killer kills human cells - Study intensifies debate over 'inert' ingredients
(link from - blog censored by Blogger. Check out his other site at )
Until now, most health studies have focused on the safety of glyphosate, rather than the mixture of ingredients found in Roundup. But in the new study, scientists found that Roundup's inert ingredients amplified the toxic effect on human cells—even at concentrations much more diluted than those used on farms and lawns.

One specific inert ingredient, polyethoxylated tallowamine, or POEA, was more deadly to human embryonic, placental and umbilical cord cells than the herbicide itself – a finding the researchers call "astonishing."

Video: Money Talks: Profits Before Patient Safety
The 50-minute documentary this video is an excerpt from was created to give an in-depth, academic perspective on the questionable marketing tactics of the pharmaceutical industry, and features the commentary of investigative journalists and medical professionals including Dr. John Abramson, author of Overdosed America, and Prescription Access Litigation Project Director, Alex Sugerman-Brozan. Other notable interviewees include Dr. Bob Goodman of Columbia University, founder of the 'No Free Lunch' program, and Dr. Jerome Hoffman of UCLA Medical School.

Painkiller ban 'has cut suicides'
A gradual phase-out of co-proxamol led to 350 fewer suicides and accidental deaths in England and Wales, a study in the British Medical Journal reports.

Kids need care, not pills, ex-foster children tell panel
Mez Pierre, 22, and Kimberly Foster, 25, both from Broward County, told the group that mental health drugs -- already at the center of the investigation of Gabriel Myers's tragic death -- aren't the answer for many foster youth. Children need caring adults who will look at the causes of their difficult behavior, they said -- not simply write prescriptions in an attempt to control it.

Medtronic Paid Surgeon Accused Of Falsifying Study Nearly $800,000
Medical device maker Medtronic Inc. says it paid nearly $800,000 over the past three years to a former Army surgeon accused of fabricating a study that reported positive results for one of the company's key spine products.

Some of the consulting payments occurred during the time that the surgeon, Timothy R. Kuklo, was shopping his favorable study of Medtronic's Infuse bone-graft product to medical journals. The paper, ultimately published last August in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, reported advantages in healing the legs of injured soldiers when Infuse was used.

The Army has said that the study is based on "falsified information" and that Dr. Kuklo forged the signatures of purported co-authors.

Playing Russian Roulette in the Laboratory - Can You Really Trust HIV Testing?
The authors, Drs. Papadopulos- Eleopulos, Turner, and Papadimitriou, demonstrate that even though we have been told that we can depend on the accuracy of these "AIDS tests," in fact we cannot. They discuss the tests and how they came to be accepted as virtually unquestioned proof that a person is infected with HIV. They also critique these tests on several different grounds: 1) the tests are not specific, 2) there is no standard way of interpreting them, and 3) the results are not reproducible. In order for an antibody test to be scientifically valid, it must meet these three criteria, and these three in turn must be validated by an independant means, namely the "gold standard".

AIDS in Africa: A field experience in Tanzania
For two years, in line with what he had learnt at the IMTA [Antwerp Institute of Tropical Medicine], Philippe continues to look upon the health situation as the consequence of an epidemic attributable to a new virus – HIV – and he decides to do some testing.

What he first notices is that the children, whether HIV-positive or negative, have exactly equal chances of being restored to health, provided they receive proper nourishment and care. What he also notices is that HIV-positive subjects, when tested following a bout of malaria, for instance, can be HIV-negative six months later.

On the occasion of the eight international congress on AIDS in Amsterdam, in July 1992, he makes mention of an unexpected observation: tests carried out on his own staff of 149 persons revealed that only 5.4 % were HIV-positive!

Readers' Comments

Good news I think on all the rising opposition to GMO foods. They need to be better researched before going to market, and there should of course be strict labeling requirements so we know if a food is GMO or not.

The fact that some scientists have declared GM crops an agronomic failure is perhaps the most significant development ... if this continues the manufacturers will eventually lose interest and we'll all be better off.
