Latest GM food scam; we are led by idiots who are advised by cretins.

Not long ago, only a few weeks in fact, the EU, under pressure from environmentally aware people (not global warming scaremongers but people who REALLY care about the environment, agreed to ban neonicotinoid pesticides because of very strong evidence that these chemicals are the main cause of the great bee die off.

Said pesticides, you may be aware, are the ones growers of Monsanto genetically modified seed are contractually obliged to use because Monsatan Monsanto seeds are genetically engineered to be resistant to the toxins in such pesticides.

So why are the cupid stunts in Westminster, led by Call Me Dave and his conservatives but with the support of Lib Dem and Labour leaders pushing for the lifting of bans on the introduction of genetically modified crops to the UK? Do the twats want to poison us or are they so spineless they dare not look at independent research like THIS and THIS that shows far from being safe, GM crops will do you about as much good as a spoonful of cyanide.

Yesterday minister Owen Patterson undid all his good work on denouncing wind farms as a money making scam created for Blair’s Corporate cronies, now he wants to hand over control of our countryside to Cameron’s corporate cronies Monsanto.

Mr Paterson said that GM offers “wonderful opportunities” that could benefit human health and the environment. (Benefit health Owen, Like THIS particular health benefit you mean – just one of many I must add to head off any science tits who come along trying to tell me one research project does not prove anything.

Patterson said GM production in the UK would mean less spraying of pesticides and less intensive farming. These are both lies. Monsanto Roundup herbicide and various pesticides (all toxic to humans) have to be sprayed on GM crops. You see the genetic modification used is not to make them immune to being eaten by caterpillars or chocked by weeds, it is to make them resistant to the active ingredients in those pesticides and herbicides. Unfortunately humans have not been genetically modifies to make us pesticide and herbicide resistant.

Mr Paterson also said that an expansion of GM crops could lead to the creation of more nature reserves because it would allow more intensive farming, therefore freeing up “space for biodiversity, nature and wilderness”. (In spite of this parliamentary support)

Mr Paterson is battling to persuade officials in the European Union to lift current rules which only allow one type of maize to be grown in the UK.

Britain is pushing for scores of GM crops to be given the green light by EU regulators, including herbicide tolerant maize and sugar beet. The politiians are in Monsantos corporate pocked and now the evil corporate empire is recruiting farmers by promising (falsely) lower costs and bigger profits and a chance to point a shotgun at GM protesters and say “Get orf moi laaaaaaaand.

Will Nestle Patent Air Next

A few days ago Little Nicky brought you news of the Nestle CEO who thinks access to water is not a human right and his company along with other fascist corporations should be able to own water sources and stiop us ordinary punter using them. Nestle are not the only multi national engaged in this kind of corporate fascism. Monsanto have of course been trying to gain control of the worlds staple food supplies for years and now have the support of The Coalition, The Labour Party, The Euronazis in Brusssels and the Uchuffingnited Nations.

Now we learn that not content with trying to own the water and control the seed stock, the corporate fascists are trying to patent nature itself. Nestle (again) are trying to take out a patent on a natural remedy that is a favourite of herbalists and an important medicine in poor areas, the fennel flower.

Again we provide you with a link to a site that lists Nestle brands so you may learn what you might want to boycott.

Big Pharma Stealing Nature. Natural Substances Turned into Pharmaceuticals Sold for Massive Profit

rasta ganja

It’s for medicinal purposes man

.

Imagine a world where all the vitamins, minerals, herbs, extracts, compounds, powders, and probiotics that are so freely available at any health food store and at many grocery stores or that we can grow from seed in our gardens or containers on a balcony were suddenly made into the private property of Pharmaceutical Corporations. This would mean that legally they were made into pharmaceutical drugs which could only be sold by licenced vendors.

Such a world might seem like some kind of nightmare scenario from the future, but it is exactly the type of world that Big Pharma is slowly trying to create today as it quietly goes about obtaining patents on all sorts of natural substances that have recently been banned by national and international regulators under a range of ridiculous justifications.’

In 2000 the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which sets the standard for other regulatory authorities around the world received a New Drug Application (NDA) for sodium oxybate. The Application was immediately granted “Priority Review” status for the substance.

Meanwhile Gamma-hydroxybutyric acid (GHB), was banned in the U.S. by an act of Congress back in 2000 because the compound had been used by some criminals to commit date rape. Prior to its prohibition, GHB, which is an all-natural substance found in the human nervous system, had been safely used as a sedative. Like marijuana, GHB was eventually recategorized by federal authorities as an illegal drug for the alleged reason that it could in certain circumstances be abused (along with every other substance in existence, by the way).

In 2002, sodium oxybate received official approval from the FDA as a treatment for cataplexy in patients with narcolepsy, and the substance was later acquired by Jazz Pharmaceuticals and rebranded as Xyrem when it purchased Orphan Medical in 2005. As you may recall, Jazz Pharmaceuticals was recently convicted in federal court for marketing Xyrem for off-label uses (http://www.jdsupra.com).

But the interesting thing to note here is that Xyrem is nothing more than repackaged GHB, an all-natural substance that used to be available from multiple manufacturers without a prescription. Today, however, it is sold by only one online pharmacy for the hefty price of $1,750 per prescription, which just so happens to be covered by insurance, according to Dr. Jonathan V. Wright, M.D. — all-natural GHB, of course, was never covered by insurance prior to being patented.

Pyridoxamine, a naturally-occurring form of vitamin B6 was declared an illegal drug by the FDA back in 2009 which means diet supplement manufacturers can no longer use the vitamin in their formulas (http://www.naturalnews.com/025606.html).

The corporation known as the “United States of America” also possesses a patent, which was obtained back in 2003, for the cannabinoids found in the all-natural marijuana plant which are known to help Multiple Sclerosis sufferers. U.S. Patent 6630507, entitled “Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants,” grants exclusive intellectual property rights for cannabis to the federal government and its drug industry allies, which are working overtime to develop patented, marijuana-based drugs for the treatment of all sorts of diseases (Cannaboids and MS).

“Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism,” explains the patent in unabashed hypocrisy. “This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of a wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases,” it adds, proving that federal marijuana prohibition serves private rather than public interests.

It’s not the first time the FDA has declared a natural molecule to be a “drug” for the purpose of banning its use in nutritional supplements while almost simultaneously approving it as a controlled pharmaceutical drug only available (at many times the cost) on medical prescription. Exactly the same process was followed when red yeast rice and the lovastatin molecules it contains were found to reduce high cholesterol. The drug companies engaged in another bout of biopiracy, ripping off the molecule from red yeast rice to make their now-famous “statin drugs” the arse dribble drugs that the UK Labour government wanted to mandate by law that all people over the age of fifty must take. Once the statin drugs had been patented and approved, Big Pharma and their lackeys in government went after red yeast rice, claiming the supplement was “adulterated with pharmaceuticals.”

It wasn’t really adulterated, of course. It just contained a natural molecule that the drug companies copied and patented and sold at a hundred times the price the natural stuff had cost before it was banned.

These are just three examples. It would be easy to fill a book by listing all the examples of nature being patented and sold as products to treat cardio – vascular disease, respiratory problems, depression, stomach and digestive problems and almost any other health issue you can name.

Traditional healers have been using these things for thousands of years. They rightfully belong to us, the people, not to the profiteering fascists of Big Pharma.

First Plasma TV, Now Plasma Weapons (and they are more deadly than bullets)
Greenteeth’s science and technology pages reported on the scalar wave technologies first proposed by Nicola Tesla in the late nineteenth century and the terrible weaons Tesla’s discoviers might make possible. Now we report on the darker side of another technology that could offer clean, low cose electricity forever. And naturally it is more likely to be used to develop weapons.

Aluminium In Vaccines Linked To Alzheimer’s Disease
Big Pharma are fighting like cornered rats to try to discredit the mounting evidence that aluminium is linked to Alzheinmer’s disease. But no natter how much monwy they spend the evidence keeps mounting up.

A Stick With Which To Beat Dick

Billionaire self – publicist Richard Branson has offered a $25million prize for the first scientist to come up with a machine that will suck carbon dioxide out of air.
Sorry to be the one to break the bad news folks but such a machine already exists, it called a tree and a lady named Mother Nature has been growing them for millions of years.
Ma. N. is unlikely to claim Dick’s money however, she is an old hippy and has never had any interest in money. On the up side she will be happy to keep providing us with as many tress as we need free of charge so long as we promise to stop cutting them down to make room for more houses, offices, factories, roads and shopping malls.
So the answer is simple and the Branson prize for reinventing the wheel is just another publicity stunt.
But Mother Nature is no meanie, she tells me if we all start being nicer to her she will ask her trees to provide each of us with a stick with which to beat Branson for being a Dick.
