Terminator Technology
We just listened to a NPR radio station program Thanksgiving evening 2003 that makes this a far worse, driven by greed problem than I had ever imagined before.  It was a woman who has been to the third world companies and seen how Monsanto's technology is really devastating and destroying farms and whole countries.  After the farmers are bankrupt by believing and following Monsanto's programs they just wind up eating the seed and chemicals themselves to commit suicide because they have nothing else and they and their families are destroyed.

Nightmare on Elm Street’s Dinner Table. Thank you, Monsanto!

Just in case you thought it was fine to eat Genetically Modified foods (better identified as “FrankenFoods”), along comes a study which makes it clear that you are eating this make believe non-food at your own peril and, worse yet, you are feeding it to your kids at their peril as well. It is important to note that Codex Alimentarius, which sets standards for the international trade of food, permits genetically modified foods and makes no effort to limit, control or eliminate them. In fact, the US has been trying for years to prevent the labeling of GM foods and seed in international trade to emulate its domestic policy which prohibits any label indication that foods contain GM ingredients, as 75-80% of all foods sold in the US do.

Now it appears that the increasingly prevalent nightmare of a disease called “Morgellon’s Disease” may be a result of GM crops and food.

Morgellon’s Disease was first described when a woman’s 3 year old son developed rashes and intensely itchy sores which produced weird multicolor fibers emerging from his skin. She put up a website about the condition in 2001 and named it “Morgellons Disease” after a 17th century report of a similar affliction.

As it always does, the allopathic community of Western, drug-oriented physicians labeled sufferers as delusional. As a physician, I have a great deal of difficulty explaining how a delusion can produce colored fibers which protrude from the skin and continue to grow in a petri dish. Be that as it may, the multicolored fibers produced by the “delusion” have been analyzed and we now know that Morgellon’s Disease is no longer rare, nor is it mysterious any longer. A study of the fibers shows that they contain DNA from both a fungus and a bacterium which are used in the commercial preparation of genetically modified foods and non-food crops (such as cotton). The fibers themselves are primarily cellulose, which the human body cannot breakdown or manufacture. So GM technology apparently has, like Professor Frankenstein, found a way to animate the non living. These fibers twist and twine, grow and divide. In short, living beneath the skin of people, they form parasitic lesions out of what should be non-living material but which, through the horror of genetic modification, has taken on the characteristics of a living thing.

The symptoms are so unbearable that a number of people suffering from the disorder have committed suicide rather than deal with the unbearable pain, constant feeling of something very much like an insect crawling without stop beneath the skin and unbearable itching any longer. Of course, it is possible to speculate that the attitude of most physicians that the condition is a mental aberration rather than a physical one may not have helped these poor souls to cope with their affliction.

How wide spread is Morgellon’s Disease? Some registries have 1200 or more people but these registrants only represent those who have access to the internet and have stumbled across the registry sites. The disease produces material unlike anything most people have ever seen. Morgellon's
                      fibers (http://www.morgellons.org/) and
These pictures show fibers removed from lesions on the skin of Morgellon’s Disease sufferers.

No picture, however, can show you the insects crawling under my skin day and night torment of the victims. Frighteningly, some researchers say that every person they have tested has some level of Morgellon’s type pathology in their skin.

If the hypothesis is accurate and the disease is caused by sowing, growing and eating FrankenFood, that would, however, make sense. 75-80 % of all US food contains unlabeled GM ingredients. We have no enzymes or other mechanisms to digest these unnatural components of the materials which the FDA says are the same as food and prohibits labeling of. We have no way of getting rid of the indigestible, toxic or even lethal materials injected into the nucleus of our food by high energy guns and biochemical tricks that nature never thought of.

Given that the US is allowing the greatest biological experiment in the history of human kind, we should not be skeptical about the possibility that this tragic and terrifying disease may be caused by terrifying make-believe food with all-too-real dangers inserted inside them where they cannot be seen, tasted, or otherwise detected by normal means, only by specialized laboratories.

Part of the objective of the Natural Solutions Foundation is to make sure that 3rd world countries have the labs, and the training necessary to determine what food is clean and safe, and what food is damaged by techniques by Genetic Manipulation.

Having never heard of anything like this, the first woman that called me wound up treating her problem with Hanna Kroeger's parasite herbal formula called "Wormwood Combination".  She called back and said it was a miracle. There are many more options we can consider.  Call us for more discussion.  801-465-4949.

Link Between Morgellon’s Disease and GMOs
by Barbara H. Peterson

Global Research, March 27, 2008

Since the Clinton administration made biotechnology “a strategic priority for U.S. government backing” (1), giant transnational agri-business concerns have aggressively taken over the global food chain by flooding it with Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) without regard for the consequences to the earth or its inhabitants. This takeover not only has the potential for global economic devastation, but threatens the earth’s population with far-reaching health concerns as well. One health concern that seems to coincide with the GMO revolution is Morgellons disease. What if the advent of Morgellons disease has something to do with the ingestion of GMO foods?

Morgellons Disease – What is it?

Very little can be found regarding this disease. Originally, sufferers were told that their problem was imaginary. This was of little comfort to the people who were suffering.

Morgellons Disease sufferers report strange, fiber-like material sticking out of sores or wounds that erupt on the skin. This is accompanied by painful, intense itching, that has been described as “an ever present sensation as if something is crawling under the skin.” (2)

On May 18, 2006, KGW, a local news channel reporting out of the Oregon area published this story:

Strange sickness: Mystery disease horror story (excerpt)

[Dr. Drottar] The disabled family practice doctor felt like bugs were crawling under her skin.
“If I fully tell people what has gone on with me medically, they think they’re in the twilight zone,” said Drottar.She woke up with the feeling that fluid was flowing just below her skin. Often black or blue hair like fibers protruded from her skin, she said. “I thought I had been exposed to asbestos. I thought I was having asbestos fibers come out of my skin. I was pulling long, thin, small hair-like fibers that were extremely sharp that could literally pierce through my finger nails,” Drottar said.In addition to the feeling of bugs and the fibers, Drottar also suffered from severe depression, chronic fatigue and a weakened immune system. As a result, she had to give up her family practice,

Drottar said. (3) Morgellons and GMO – the Link
Little information has been revealed concerning the long-term health effects of GMO crops on humans or animals, and even less information can be had regarding research correlating Morgellons with GMO foods. This is suspicious right off the bat, because it would seem that there would be a natural curiosity regarding a link between Genetically Modified Organisms that people ingest regularly and inorganic fibers that protrude from a person’s skin. This would be right up a geneticist’s alley, and quite worthy of intensive research. So, why aren’t there a ton of published studies? Why is it so difficult finding anything related to this? Could it be that companies such as Monsanto have enough clout to effectively squash these stories? If they have enough clout to ruin countries by deceiving impoverished farmers into purchasing patented GMO seeds, and then take it a step further and force these poor people to purchase seeds year after year instead of harvesting their own, then they have enough clout to ask our more than willing corporate government to manipulate the press…again.

According to Mike Stagman, PhD, “Genetic Engineering is a nightmare technology that has already caused MANY disease epidemics — documented but unpublicized.” (4)

Well Monsanto, you let at least one study slip through. With the help of a couple of search engines, the following article by Whitley Strieber published on October 12, 2007, titled “Skin Disease May Be Linked to GM Food” was found, which concludes that the fibers taken from a Morgellons sufferer contain the same substance that is “used commercially to produce genetically-modified plants.” Here is the article:

Skin Disease May Be Linked to GM Food
12-Oct-2007

Many people—and most physicians—have written off Morgellons disease as either a hoax or hypochondria. But now there is evidence that this mysterious disease may be REAL and related to GENETICALLY MODIFIED food!

The skin of Morgellons victims oozes mysterious strands that have been identified as cellulose (which cannot be manufactured by the human body), and people have the sensation of things crawling beneath their skin. The first known case of Morgellons occurred in 2001, when Mary Leitao created a web site describing the disease, which had infected her young son. She named it Morgellons after a 17th century medical study in France that described the same symptoms.

In the Sept. 15-21 issue of New Scientist magazine, Daniel Elkan describes a patient he calls “Steve Jackson,” who “for years” has “been finding tiny blue, red and black fibers growing in intensely itchy lesions on his skin.” He quotes Jackson as saying, “The fibers are like pliable plastic and can be several millimeters long. Under the skin, some are folded in a zigzag pattern. These can be as fine as spider silk, yet strong enough to distend the skin when you pull them, as if you were pulling on a hair.”

Doctors say that this type of disease could only be caused by a parasite, but anti-parasitic medications do not help. Psychologists insist that this is a new version of the well-known syndrome known as “delusional parasitosis.” While this is a “real” disease, it is not a physically-caused one.

But now there is physical evidence that Morgellons is NOT just psychological. When pharmacologist Randy Wymore offered to study some of these fibers if people sent them to him, he discovered that “fibers from different people looked remarkably similar to each other and yet seem to match no common environmental fibers.”

When they took them to a police forensic team, they said they were not from clothing, carpets or bedding. They have no idea what they are.

Researcher Ahmed Kilani says he was able to break down two fiber samples and extract their DNA. He found that they belonged to a fungus.

An even more provocative finding is that biochemist Vitaly Citovsky discovered that the fibers contain a substance called “Agrobacterium,” which, according to New Scientist, is “used commercially to produce genetically-modified plants.” Could GM plants be “causing a new human disease?” (5)

GMO – Not on My Watch!

The giant transnational corporations behind the GMO revolution are hitting us in our most vulnerable spot – our bellies. Most people have been brought up with an innate trust that what they purchase from the stores is safe to eat. This is no longer true, since most processed foods contain genetically engineered ingredients that can have disastrous effects on both animal and human health. What you purchase from the corner store might just change your DNA and create such frightening symptoms that the general public simply does not believe it. What is worse is that when you go to the doctor to get help, he/she tells you what you are experiencing is all in your head. This is rubbish! It is up to people who care to make the correlations between what we eat and what happens to our bodies. Remember the old saying – “you are what you eat?” Well, this author believes it is true.

Michael Pollan did a good job of keeping his cool, considering he was discussing the future of food with the head of Monsanto -- a company that is directly threatening the world’s food supplies as we speak.

For those of you who aren’t aware of why I refer to Monsanto as the world’s most evil company, it’s largely because they:

• Are the world leader in the potentially hazardous genetic modification of seeds.
• Are patenting not only their own GMO seeds, but also a huge number of crop seeds, patenting life forms for the first time -- without a vote of the people or Congress.
• Do not allow farmers to save their seeds to replant the next year – a practice that has been done for generations. Instead, they aggressively seek out and sue farmers they suspect of doing so.
Have sued farmers who have not been able to prevent the inevitable drift of Monsanto’s GE pollen or seed onto their land for patent infringement!
• Have produced two of the most toxic substances ever known -- polychlorinated biphenyls, known as PCBs, and dioxin (Agent Orange).

Perhaps their biggest assault to your food supply is what’s known as terminator technology. These are seeds that have been genetically modified to “self-destruct.” In other words, the seeds (and the forthcoming crops) are sterile, which means farmers must buy them again each year.

The implications that terminator seeds could have on the world’s food supply are disastrous: the traits from genetically engineered crops can get passed on to other crops. Once the terminator seeds are released into a region, the trait of seed sterility could be passed to other non-genetically-engineered crops, making most or all of the seeds in the region sterile.

If allowed to continue, every farmer in the world could come to rely on Monsanto for their seed supply!

If you haven’t done so yet, please do take the time to watch The Future of Food. This in-depth investigation into the disturbing truth behind genetically modified foods is one of the best documentaries I have ever viewed. It will help you understand the very real threat that ALL future generations face as a result of genetic engineering.

Michael Pollan, meanwhile, the author of the book Omnivore’s Dilemma, is one of the most outspoken supporters of growing food using sustainable, self-supporting ecosystems -- the exact opposite of what Monsanto is working to establish.


Introductory note by Vandana Shiva: 
I had been invited as a speaker on a panel on "Women's Knowledge, Biotechnology and International Trade -- Fostering A New Dialogue into the Next Millennium" at the International Conference on Women and Agriculture which is being organised by the Government of Canada but sponsored by Monsanto. This conference in my view is an attempt to co-opt women into passive partners in Monsanto's totalitarian empire. (click link below for her Statement)

Many may not actually be aware that "ten corporations control 32 percent of the commercial-seed market, valued at $23 billion, and 100 percent of the market for genetically engineered, or transgenic, seeds. These corporations also control the global agrochemical and pesticide market. Just five corporations control the global trade in grain." These corporations, such as Monsanto and Cargill, were key players in shaping international trade agreements such as GATT and now the WTO..........Vandana Shiva has published two books with South End Press (Cambridge, MA) on these topics, which are clearly written and accessible to the average reader. Stolen Harvest: The Hijacking of the World Food Supply (2000) and Biopiracy: The Plunder of Nature and Knowledge (1999). She also writes in the magazine Third World Resurgence, where these issues are explored from the point of view of the countries most affected by the policies.

        How can wild plants be rendered sterile with this new technology? This is most interesting!
        The terminator technology is accomplished by splicing a gene into the plant's DNA, the plant grows, flowers and emits it's pollen.  Pollen is species specific but there are some plants at
the edge of the species that will cross pollinate with others on the edge of their "range".  It may take a few years for this to occur, but it will.  The technology is most exciting for Monsanto because it can be turned off chemically.  So even if you own the seed you will have to pay Monsanto a "fee for turning the viability of your seed "on".
        I think that the scariest part of the whole equation is that when the Delta Pine land and Seed Company developed this technology with grant from the USDA, they , in appreciation of the grant, patented the technology in partnership with the USDA.  Now the USDA is in the terminator gene technology business to the tune of 9%.  In the purchase agreement that transferred ownership of Delta Pine Land and Seed Company to Monsanto it is specified that the USDA agreement shall be honored.
      Yes, a federal agency that is responsible for our agricultural and food safety is profiting from terminator technology.  Not exactly an unbiased watchdog are they?  Will the USDA do anything to veto the use of the terminator technology?  In essence,  Monsanto has purchased the USDA.  Am I afraid?  In the advice of the little girl in the movie about the Addams family,
"Be afraid, be very afraid".

Take Monsanto. (Please.) The behemoth of the GMO world is owner of three quarters of the patents for genetically modified crops and produces 90% of the world's seed technology. It possesses a dizzying array of connections to governmental agencies--far too many too enumerate here--but a few examples are: the Supreme Court via Clarence Thomas, Donald Rumsfeld via direct business ties, John Ashcroft who received more money from Monsanto than any other politician, with the runner up being Larry Combest, the Chairman of the House Agriculture Committee.

Monsanto says it can help save the world's starving and impoverished with GMOs. How lovely and altruistic it all sounds in theory. But in practice, it puts a stranglehold on economic and biodiversity. As Monsanto is feeding people with its GMOs, it's taking away the livelihood of the local farmers by removing the locus of production and putting it back in the good ole' US of A, lining the pockets of its top executives rather than the pockets of the farmers. In so doing, it puts the small farms out of business, and perpetuates a chronic cycle of poverty and dependence on Monsanto. What a great system. For Monsanto.

In Mexico, Monsanto's crops are cross-pollinating with the corn of the local farmers, destroying the extremely important biodiversity there. In Iowa, some organic farmers' crops have also been cross-pollinated with GM corn, disqualifying these farmers from organic status, robbing them of their right to the livelihood of their choice and reducing their income substantially. Other US farmers, experimenting with Monsanto crops, have unwittingly sold their soul and can only plant when and what Monsanto tells them.

In the aftermath of the mid-term elections, with our Monsanto-esque, government, I was thinking we could take the example set by Zambia who refused the offer of free GMO corn, knowing that among other things, accepting the corn has potential to destabilize food security. We can take a stand on a few things to help restabilize some things right here at home

RE: Genetic Engineering Capitalism over the Edge

I recently returned from a visit to friends in Arizona. I was amazed and appalled that so little was said, or known, about genetic engineering. This affected me so much that I wrote an open letter to my friends summarising
what the whole issue is about and where the key threats lie. This letter is enclosed, and comes with a health warning - it is long and comprehensive, even emotional in places.

There are no absolute villains in this story - just a bunch of corporate guys who are showing up starkly the moral corruptness of capitalism without ethics. I am a former international banker and industrialist, so understand
that world well. In pursuit of profits and market share, nay market dominance, they are seeking to control the building blocks of life through patent rights on every gene ever identified. Imagine, the gene that differentiates basmati rice from ordinary rice, owned by a US corporation who can from now on ask the peasant farmers of the poorest nations on earth to pay a royalty on a basic crop. As collection of royalties from 2 billion farmers becomes a practical impossibility, introduce control agents such as terminator genes, and you will be assured of market share forever. And the world further looses its bio-diversity, local independence, top soil, free markets, freedom to choose, etc. while submitting itself to further increases in toxicity.

Wherever US companies and the US government have sought to force nations to accept genetically engineered products, the argument has been "if the sophisticated farmers and consumers of the US are willing to accept GMO
products, what right do you have to resist?" This is patently a lie perpetrated in the name of the American people, as the US is only just beginning to wake up to the GMO threat.

Take a breath read the enclosed and lets talk more.

This so represents the way Monsanto feels about our environment and our planet's people - I love the graphic, sorry if it offends.  If we don't laugh we will cry.
