NEWS ~ Genetically-Modified-Organisms (GMO’s) + Monsanto

Editor's Note: This is an area where Wikipedia falls short and gives little attention to the health or environmental affects of the industry practices.

genetically modified organism (GMO), also known as a transgenic organism, is any organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. GMOs are the source of genetically modified foods and are also widely used in scientific research and to produce goods other than food. The term GMO is very close to the technical legal term, 'living modified organism', defined in the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety, which regulates international trade in living GMOs (specifically, "any living organism that possesses a novel combination of genetic material obtained through the use of modern biotechnology").

The Organic Consumers Association, and the Union of Concerned Scientists and Greenpeace stated that risks have not been adequately identified and managed, and they have questioned the objectivity of regulatory authorities. Some health groups say there are unanswered questions regarding the potential long-term impact on human health from food derived from GMOs, and propose mandatory labeling or a moratorium on such products. Concerns include contamination of the non-genetically modified food supply, effects of GMOs on the environment and nature the rigor of the regulatory process, and consolidation of control of the food supply in companies that make and sell GMOs.

AV6 - Dr Graham Downing - DNA Codes Under Attack: The Vaccine Agenda | YouTube

It seems that with every passing week another assault is launched against the health of ourselves and children. Whether it be vaccination unnecessarily administered against relatively harmless diseases; the over-prescription of cholesterol lowering medication even though cholesterol doesn't cause heart disease; or GMOs and Roundup taking over our food supply amidst mounting evidence against its use. Common sense dictates that we pause and investigate just what IS happening to us. When it comes to vaccination and GMOs the word Autism isn’t far behind…and the observation has been made that autistic children are the modern day Canary in the coal mine and are a dire warning of what is to come for all mankind. I remember unravelling DNA in the labs of King’s College, then under the directorship of one of the men that discovered it, Prof. Wilkins. Little did I know then how important that knowledge would be today. Dr Downing's FACTUAL RESEARCHwill reveal how your DNA Codes are under attack and why and how you need to defend them.

Double Victory! Monsanto pesticide and GMOs just got whacked! | Center for Food Safety

We just made history! Center for Food Safety (CFS) just had one of the most important legal victories ever against pesticides and GMO crops.  After years of litigation, a Federal Court just banned Monsanto's toxic pesticide dicamba. This also effectively halts the use of GMO crops designed to tolerate that pesticide. This massive win protects farmers, our health, and hundreds of endangered species. The U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that EPA's approval of the pesticide be immediately revoked and its use stopped. This provides relief to thousands of farmers across the country whose crops have been decimated by the drift of this pesticide onto their fields. In ruling the pesticide approval unlawful, the Court cited "enormous and unprecedented damage" caused by dicamba in the last few years, damage that has "torn apart the social fabric of many farming communities." This victory took years of effort by CFS's legal and science teams and we could not have asked for a better result. We are so proud of them, and so incredibly grateful to our members and donors that enable these major victories to happen.

Researchers to Release Genetically Engineered Mosquitoes in Africa for First Time | Scientific American

The government of Burkina Faso granted scientists permission to release genetically engineered mosquitoes anytime this year or next, researchers announced Wednesday. It’s a key step in the broader efforts to use bioengineering to eliminate malaria in the region. The release, which scientists are hoping to execute this month, will be the first time that any genetically engineered animal is released into the wild in Africa. While these particular mosquitoes won’t have any mutations related to malaria transmission, researchers are hoping their release, and the work that led up to it, will help improve the perception of the research and trust in the science among regulators and locals alike. It will also inform future releases.

Evidence that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is genetically engineered | GM Watch

An anonymous scientist[1] has published a detailed article arguing that SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing the COVID-19 pandemic, is a genetically engineered lab creation. What’s more, the author argues that the particular bat coronavirus from which SARS-CoV-2 is claimed to have naturally emerged – dubbed RaTG13 – is a fabrication. In other words, the author says the “natural origin” for the virus was made up in a desperate attempt to let those responsible for the lab escape off the hook.

Kripalu to lay off 450, shut down until 2021 | The Berkshire Eagle

The Berkshire economy absorbed another shock Thursday when one of South County's largest employers announced that it will lay off 90 percent of its almost 500 employees next month. Due to the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health is planning to lay off 450 of the retreat center's 489 total employees June 17, CEO Barbara Vacarr said Thursday. Kripalu's employees were notified Wednesday of the staff reductions.The remaining 39 employees will receive salary cuts based on the amount of their yearly compensation, with the highest-paid staffers receiving the biggest pay reductions, Vacarr said. The remaining members of Kripalu's peer leadership team are receiving 40 percent pay cuts. "We tried to do this equitably, based on salary," she said. All of the laid-off employees will be eligible to apply for unemployment compensation, Vacarr said. Kripalu hopes to bring back as many employees as possible when it reopens in 2021, she said.

8 Life Lessons From A 2000-Year-Old Guidebook – The Yoga Sutras | Collective Evolution

Yoga is something that continues to gain a tremendous amount of popularity throughout the world as we move through 2015 and beyond. It’s not a religion, and it is used and practiced by theists, atheists, and everyone in between. There are two major components of yoga that are now being practiced in the West today: physical fitness through stretching (asana), and mental fitness through the practice of meditation (dhyana).
