Genetic Roulette € the Gamble of Our Lives!

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 10:45 AM

Genetic Roulette –
The Gamble of Our Lives!

 

A film by Jeffrey M. Smith – Narrated by Lisa Oz

 

Jeffrey M. Smith, author of the world’s bestselling book on GMOs, Seeds of Deception, is a leading consumer advocate promoting healthier non-GMO choices.

Genetic Roulette – The Gamble of Our Lives has won the 2012 Movie of the Year by the Solari Report and the Top Transformational Film of 2012 by AwareGuide!

Never-Before-Seen-Evidence points to genetically engineered foods as a major contributor to rising disease rates in the US population, especially among children. Gastrointestinal disorders, allergies, inflammatory diseases, and infertility are just some of the problems implicated in humans, pets, livestock, and lab animals that eat genetically modified soybeans and corn.

Monsanto’s strong arm tactics, the FDA’s fraudulent policies, and how the USDA ignores a growing health emergency are also laid bare. This sometimes shocking film may change your diet, help you protect your family, and accelerate the consumer tipping point against genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Don’t miss this film!

After the March Against Monsanto rally concluded, Dr. Bragg made her way to the Downtown Farmer’s Market to do her weekly shopping.  In Santa Barbara we are know for our organic produce. Patricia loves the local Farmer’s Markets, enjoys natural bounty of Santa Barbara County and seasonal organic grown produce delights. Here she met with friends, fans, and flower vendors. See pictures below!

See Bragg Blog for tomorrow’s post on World Renowned Genetic Roulette Movie!
www.geneticroulettemovie.com

 

What exactly are GMOs and why should they be labeled?

GMOs (genetically modified organisms) were brought into the world by a chemical company, not an agriculture or food group. Monsanto created DDT, PCBs, Agent Orange, marketed aspartame, and created bovine growth hormone (rBGH) to infect milking cows that put pus into commercial milk.

GMOs are created within the seeds of chosen parent crops in laboratories by “splicing” genes from completely
unrelated species
 into those seeds. Normal plant hybrids are cultivated in soil over time by cross pollinating closely related plants.

So far, GMOs have invaded soy, corn, beets (for beet sugar), cotton, and alfalfa agriculture. Many GMO edibles are contained surreptitiously in a wide variety of processed foods, while GMO corn and soy are used by unnatural factory farm feed lots.

If you’ve been following NaturalNews for some time, you may recall several articles describing GMOs’ inherent human and animal health hazards as well as crop and environmental dangers. If not, you’ll find most of them here. (http://www.naturalnews.com/GMO.html)

GMOs damage crops, the environment, and the food chain

GMOs are often genetically created artificially to tolerate herbicides, made by Monsanto and others, that kill weeds. The herbicides contain glyphosates. Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer is meant for Roundup Ready GMO crop seeds. It’s an extremely toxic glyphosate agent.

Glyphosates greatly harm grazing animals and pollute the wells and groundwater of farm areas where they’re used. (http://naturalsociety.com)

They create sterility and birth defects among animals and humans. Most of the honey bee die-off, or colony collapse, is attributed to glyphosates. If enough pollinating bees disappear, our food chain is endangered further.

Glophosate’s chelating capabilities remove minerals from the soil where they’re sprayed. So crops get increasingly worse while increasingly abundant Roundup resistant weeds, or super weeds, force farmers to add more toxic
materials to Roundup.

It’s a vicious cycle for farmers who, conned by greater production promises, unwittingly signed on to Monsanto Roundup Ready GMO binding seed contracts. Monsanto uses patent laws to litigate against farmers whose non-GMO fields are contaminated by GMO fields, forcing smaller farms out of business.

Most farmers fold because they cannot afford the litigation. American farmers are attempting to organize against mostly Monsanto’s GMOs. European farmers have managed to resist thus far.

Why you should be concerned

Maybe the reasons summarized above are too abstract. So let’s get personal. Contrary to mainstream media’s (MSM) outlook, the jury is not out on GMOs. GMOs do destroy human and animal health while endangering non-GMO crops with contamination. That’s been discovered by several scientists acting independently.

They jeopardize their careers and even their lives by communicating what they find while the MSM ignores them.
Anti-GMO activist and author Jeffrey Smith lists the casualties and summarizes Monsanto’s harassment here: (http://www.sott.net)

Agro-ecologist Don Lotter, Ph.D. released an inside scoop when he stated:

The promoter gene used … [the] cauliflower mosaic virus, … [was assumed to be] denatured in our digestive system, but it’s not. It has been shown to promote the transfer of transgenes from GM foods to the bacteria within our digestive system, which are responsible for 80 percent of our immune system function.

Read Lotter’s interview here: (http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/article_19468.cfm)

This from Wessex Natural Law research papers: The cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV 35S) used for plant genetic
engineering is cited as a source of viral recombination as well as a gene silencer and DNA disruptor.

What’s in Your Water?

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 4:03 PM

What’s In Your Water?

 

Fourty-Three Years After the Clean Water Act
and Our Water Quality Is Still Threatened!

Polluted water is a major threat to your life and mine. The facts are alarming…

  • 15 million of the world’s children under age 5 die every year from polluted water
  • 46% of U.S. lakes and 40% of our rivers are polluted and unsafe to use
  • 70% of U.S. industrial waste is dumped into our usable water sources
  • 2 trillion gallons of untreated sewage is dumped into U.S. waters annually
  • By 2025, 3.5 billion people will face water shortage issues

Today, forty-three years after the Clean Water Act became law, instead of clean water many of our waterways are still polluted and the protection we’ve been promised has been either eroded or abandoned completely.

We must stop corporate polluters from treating our precious waterways as their own personal sewers and viewing the Clean Water Act as nothing more than a nuisance they can ignore!

Federal law gives citizens like you and me the power to sue for environmental crimes. That’s why Waterkeeper Alliance is patrolling our waterways, exposing polluters, taking them to court, and fighting every day for the protection of our most precious resource.

Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease “PREVENT & REVERSE HEART DISEASE” by Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., M.D.

Based on the groundbreaking results of a twenty-year nutritional study by Dr. Esselstyn, a preeminent researcher and clinician, this book illustrates that a plant-based, oil-free diet can not only prevent and stop the progression of heart disease but can also reverse its effects. The proof lies in the incredible outcomes for patients who have followed Dr. Esselstyn’s program, including a number of patients in his original study who had been told by their cardiologists that they had less than a year to live. Within months of starting the program, Dr. Esselstyn’s patients began to improve dramatically, and twenty years later, they remain free of symptoms.

Complete with more than 150 delicious recipes, this book explains the science behind the simple plan that has drastically changed the lives of Dr. Esselstyn’s patients forever. It will empower readers to take control of their heart health.
