GMO and Contaminated Food
“In 2012, researchers at Caen University in France studied the effects of eating genetically modified food treated with Monsanto’s Roundup. The animal subjects in the study suffered severe liver damage, kidney malfunction, tumors and hormonal disturbances. These mice had been exposed to Roundup at levels far below the European standard levels.
When the scientists published the study, however, there was significant backlash from both academia and government sources. The study’s author writes:
Paul Christou demanded that our paper be retracted and insulted us personally. Christou is not only the editor-in-chief of Transgenic Research, the journal in which he published his article, but is also linked to Monsanto…
A number of other critics of the study were plant biologists who, like Christou, hold patents on genetically-modified organisms. Some of these were employees of Monsanto. Other critics focused on the economic disruption that might ensue if the study were to be taken seriously. Richard E. Goodman, assistant editor of the journal in which the study appeared, Food and Chemical Toxicity, spoke out against the research, but seemingly without concern for human health…
The researchers say a number of members of parliament attempted to block the study. Monsanto exercises influence at the government level in a number of countries. In the United States, former executives of Monsanto are employed in the Department of Justice, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Food and Drug Administration.
Americans have expressed concern about the GMO controversy, and there has been an outcry for labeling of genetically-modified food. However, President Obama signed a bill this summer [the Dark Act] that exempts most GMO food from labeling, and provides for somewhat cryptic labels on the foods that do have a warning. Consumer advocates are encouraging people to buy locally-grown food from farmers who are raising healthy, non-GMO produce.”
10 IRREFUTABLE evidence that GMO can harm you! This is an excellent article that goes into all aspects of the GMO food crisis. It’s long, but it has headings so you can read the parts that interest you most. While we don’t agree with their take on global warming as a man-made phenomenon, everything else is important to know and right 0n point – this information could save your life.
“In the last few decades one of the crisis that our planet has been facing is modern agricultural. Extensive farming, use of pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers, genetically modified foods or crops and invention of hormones and antibiotic that are fed to our livestock have drastically changed everything.
Only 3% of US farm lands are planted with fruits and vegetables while 50% of farms are used for planting soy and corn. Even farmers treat what they plant as a commodity rather than food. With the anti-GMO labeling policies in America, there is no way that you would know, weather or not, what you buy in grocery stores are genetically modified. Even if you only buy organic foods, how could you know that the original seeds weren’t genetically modified?
In the last three decades, industrialized agriculture, biotechnology and extensive use of pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers have resulted in a nutrient-deficient soil, mineral & nutritional deficiencies in soil, weak immune system in human beings and animals, new diseases, viruses & global warming.”

Scientists have mapped out a serotonin-driven anxiety circuit that may explain ‘anxiety’ side effect of antidepressants. More than 100 million people worldwide take selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), such as Prozac and Zoloft, to treat depression, anxiety and related conditions…
The new study, published in Nature, counters the popular view of serotonin as a neurotransmitter that promotes only good feelings. SSRIs, which are taken by about one in 10 people in the United States and about one in four women in their 40s and 50s, are thought to improve mood by boosting serotonin activity in the brain. There are brain circuits through which serotonin does seem to improve mood, and some studies have linked depression to abnormally low levels of serotonin. But the short-lived promotion of anxiety in many patients on SSRIs — even suicidal thinking, particularly in younger people — has long hinted that serotonin can have negative effects on mood, depending on the precise brain circuit where it acts.”
