GMO testing

Genetically Modified Organism

Genetic engineering is based on a false understanding of the genome.

CRISPR and Three Myths of Precise Genome Editing

FDA Approves Three New Types of GMO Potatoes

Import fraud allowed by USDA


1958 Beadle and Tatum receive the Nobel Prize in Physiology, in error, for demonstrating genes regulate chemical processes, one gene = one protein theory.

2002 Human Genome project proves one gene = one protein theory incorrect.


The history of genetically modified organisms is inseparable from the political history - David, Nelson, Laurance and John D. Rockefeller III.

In the three decades following American victory in World War II these four riders of the GMO apocalypse shaped the evolution of power determined at all costs to bring the entire world under their sway.

George Frost Kennan, Henry R. Luce, Averell Harriman and the Rockefeller brothers, create the concept of multinational "agribusiness".

Henry R. Luce can be considered a founding father of authoritarianism.

Henry R. Luce, the creator of Time, Life, Fortune and later of Sports Illustrated, was a media tycoon at a time when, as AJ Liebling put it, freedom of the press belonged to the man who owned one, a time when a lone publisher could aspire to influence the course of world events.

Henry R. Luce advanced the cause of American intervention in the world,
up to and including an unrelenting passion for the misadventure in Vietnam
.

What Henry R. Luce called “journalism of information with a purpose” is hard to distinguish from propaganda, and it won him the scorn of intellectuals.

Henry R. Luce is instrumental in the idea of controlling cancer.

The Rockefeller's finance the "Green Revolution" in the agriculture sector of developing countries to create new markets for farm equipment, petrochemical fertilizers and petroleum products, as well as to expand dependency on petroleum products.

Their actions are inseparable from the story of genetically modified crops.

Horizontal gene transfer involves injecting a gene from one species into a completely different species, yielding unexpected and unpredictable results.

Iraq War: Monsanto, Cargill & Dow Chemical Take Over Iraqi Agriculture

1976 National Institutes of Health (NIH) establish guidelines for biotech research.

NIH guidelines rely on the industry self-regulation as NIH is an advisory and not a regulatory body.

1977 through 1978 As large corporations become involved in genetic engineering, NIH guidelines make accommodations for field tests and mass production of genetically engineered organisms.

16 bills to regulate genetic research are introduced in US Congress.

None pass.

The NIH guidelines - which deal primarily with medical and pharmaceutical research and do not take a precautionary approach - remain the sole regulatory mechanism for biotech research.

early 1980s Biotech corporations are developing genetically engineered plants, animal drugs, and livestock, but no system is in place to regulate the development, sale, or use of these bioengineered products, including food.

White House Office of Science and Technology Policy join the biotech industry in opposing strong regulations and oversight by federal agencies.

1986 Biotech regulatory framework policy founded on the corporate-generated assertion that bioengineering is just an extension of traditional plant and animal breeding, and bioengineered products did not differ fundamentally from non-engineered organisms and yet patents are granted on precisely the fact that these genetically modified organisms differ fundamentally from non-engineered organisms !

Food and Drug Adminstration tasked with regulating bio-engineered organisms in food and drugs.

The Department of Agriculture tasked with regulating genetically engineered plants and animals.

The Environmental Protection Agency tasked with regulating genetically engineered organisms released into the environment for pest control.

National Institutes of Health tasked with examining organisms that could affect public health.

These regulations are founded on the false premise that bioengineered organisms used for food and agricultural products are no different from non-engineered, conventional products.

In fact, to produce genetically engineered foods, researchers take genes from food or non-food organisms and add them to another organism to alter its genetic makeup in ways not possible through sexual reproduction as used in animal husbandry or cross-breeding plant species.

Genetic engineering process' delete essential proteins and/or add entirely new ones modifing genetic characteristics in entirely unexpected ways.

As long as genes come from an approved food source, the government treats new or altered genes in bioengineered foods as "natural", not novel, additives.

In most cases regulators are not required to take a precautionary approach when evaluating new genetically engineered food products; products are considered safe until proven otherwise.

Studies to determine the long-term health consequences of new products are not required.

Historically corporations have submitted fraudulent test results showing products are safe or have simply withheld studies indicating otherwise.

Corporate safety studies as trade secrets, proprietary knowledge, are not available for public scrutiny.

Inserting a gene creates rogue proteins.

Rogue proteins are allergenic and toxic as the organism has no naturally evovled immunity to it.

No long-term feeding studies have been perform in the US or Canada to demonstrate the claims that engineered corn or soy are safe.

Scientific studies out of Europe and Russia, showing that rats fed engineered food die prematurely.

Scientific literature is full of studies showing that engineered corn and soy contain toxic allergenic proteins.




"Studies show that proteins produced by engineered plants are different than what they should be.

Inserting a gene in a genome using this technology can and does result in damaged proteins.

I refute claims of biotech companies that engineered crops yield more, that they require less pesticide applications, that they have no impact on the environment and of course that they are safe to eat." - Thierry Vrain

2005 "The central dogma of molecular biology, as faith-based and pervasive as that of any religion (maybe more so), collapsed with the completion of the human genome project!

There were not even enough protein-coding genes to account for the about 100k different proteins found in the human body." - Sayer Ji

2007 Top 3 genetically modified seed corporations (Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta) together account for $10.3 billion, or 47% of the worldwide proprietary seed market.

Monsanto accounts for almost one-quarter (23%) of the global proprietary seed market.

87% of the total world area devoted to genetically engineered seeds uses biotech seeds and traits engineered by Monsanto.

48% of the seed revenue of DuPont comes from products that carry a biotech trait.

The only technical achievement in the engineering of crops is their ability to withstand a shower of chemical weed killers.

Over 80% of the worldwide area devoted to genetically engineered crops carry at least one genetic trait for herbicide tolerance.

2009 Americans Feeding Americans Emergency Caravan brings 13 semitrailers with more than $2.1 million worth of food, enough to help sustain about 5,200 families for a week, to Elkhart, Indiana.

Agriculture in Indiana is a large and diverse industry that plays a vital role in the economic stability of Indiana, with 63,000 farms containing 15,400,000 acres of farmland.

In 2001, cash receipts from the sale of crops and livestock reached $5.1 billion. In the same year, Indiana ranked 14th in the US in cash receipts from the sale of all commodities; crop sales amounted to $3.2 billion; and livestock sales totaled $1.8 billion. In 2002 the state produced over 631 million bushels of corn for grain, ranking 5th in the US.

Indiana also grew over 235 million bushels of soybeans, the 4th most in the nation.

The monoculture is unable to feed the very people that it surrounds!

Why the FDA doesn't really know what's in your food

FDA Admits Chicken Meat Contains Cancer-Causing Arsenic


Regulations require corporations to submit reams of scientific data.

This gives the public the illusion new biotech products undergo rigorous safety evaluations and are safe.

This also discourages competition from smaller biotech and seed companies.

"There seemed to be a trend in the place toward approval at any price. It went from a university-like setting where there was independent scientific review to an atmosphere of "approve, approve, approve." - Whistleblower Veterinarian Dr. Richard Burroughs, FDA Center for Veterinary Sciences

Richard Burroughs saw researchers drop sick cows from rBGH test trials and manipulate data to make health and safety problems disappear.

According to Burroughs, the raw, untouched data hidden away behind the agency's doors and protected as trade secrets would show otherwise.

Not only did the FDA fail to act upon evidence that rBGH was not safe, the agency actually promoted the product before and after approval.




senior adviser


Margaret Miller, deputy director of the FDA Office of New Animal Drugs, was a former Monsanto research scientist who had worked on Monsanto's rBGH safety studies up until 1989.

Michael R. Taylor, the FDA deputy commissioner for Policy, previously employed by Monsanto for seven years, wrote the FDA rBGH labelling guidelines.

To keep rBGH-milk from being "stigmatized" in the marketplace, the FDA announced that labels on non-rBGH products must state that there is no difference between rBGH and the naturally occurring hormone.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.





This website defines a new philosophical ideology to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a mystery school aptly named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world banking system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
