Cancer and Diseases Rising in Young Adults!

Articles are suddenly sprouting about the rise in rates of colon and rectal cancer among our youth. The reason?  Diet and Environment. Which translates to the same place – chemicals/pesticides that leach into our food and our environment that are known toxins and yet still widely used.

There are 40 known cancer causing toxins being used in our school classrooms each and every day! They are associated with Kidney and Liver damage, birth defects, neurotoxicity, thyroid disruption, reproductive disruption and just – Cancer.

Do you think there is a connection?

Do you think there is any chance anything will be done?

While our esteemed FDA an d EPA are miffed that all their hard work in nationalizing our food and water and land they forgot about the real tragic pollutants that are decimating our youth.

There is a solution – Homeschool and Organic. But the vast majority of our population refuse to consider those options, and so they demand more vaccines, more prescription meds, instead of actually considering the death march that is assaulting us.

The pesticides are sold as household products to kill insects, weeds, crab grass, etc.., they are used on golf courses, in wood veneers, mosquito control, mold, algae, and used in the production of lettuce, alfalfa, hay, rhubarb, endive, berries, artichokes, legumes, Christmas trees, potatoes, and stone fruits (peaches, plums, apricots, nectarines).

For me that’s a big part of my diet. And for young people who think they are eating healthily, they are instead being poisoned.

But it doesn’t even stop there. BPA which came on the market in the 1950’s is used in plastic bottles, the lining of cans, plastic wrap and cashier sheets. The EPA says it is perfectly safe for humans … except it is banned from all baby products. In my world, babies are humans and if it isn’t good for them – it isn’t good for anyone!

Of course, not to be left high and dry, manufacturers created a substitute for BPA, BPS. But BPS is apparently just as harmful, affecting the hormonal and endocrine system and crossing from mother to baby via the placenta decreasing pre-birth growth.

According to The American Cancer Society, people born in 1990 have double the risk of contracting rectal cancer than people born in 1950 had during their 20’s and 30’s. While the rate of colon cancer has declined in recent years, the decline is not because the disease is less likely, it is because of early detections due to screening. But young people aren’t screened, so their rates have steadily climbed and are suggested to continue that trend.

In fact, nearly all cancers are rising, a footprint that can find it’s love-matc in the more and more expansive use of chemicals – pesticides and – herbicides leaching into our food, water and air.

When monitoring and evaluating a particular pesticide, a critical factor that the EPA does not consider is the effect of ’40 CHEMCIALS’.   One chemical may be deemed low, but add 39 more that are varied from low to high and you have a veritable Molotov cocktail!

It seems a natural consideration, but then the EPA is not a natural defender of humans, instead they have become a proponent of chemical manufacturers. Monsanto and Bayer and DOW and DuPont and Syngenta are the groomers.

And in a perfectly corrupt world, they would be working in collusion with the big pharma giants as one creates the disease and the other creates a drug for the disease… But no one considers a – cure.

California’s Flooding – $50 Billion…and counting

Massive flooding, uprooted trees, smashed cars and trucks, houses destroyed, roads torn to shreds, boulders tumbling into roadways, and sinkholes swallowing cars and people… Southern California is being pummeled, Northern California is facing massive evacuations, Governor Brown is nowhere, and Hollywood is partying and trumpeting anarchy…

Where’s the love? Where’s Meryl and Ashton and Rosie and Jerry and George and everyone else who talks the talk but can’t walk the walk?   Polishing their silver and gold?

Where are the political humbrits who have done nothing to mediate these flood – drought fests that occur like clockwork every 7 to 10 years?   Looking at the damage, who is going to pay?

Apparently, the esteemed Governor Brown is begging for about half a million to fix the decaying dam in Northern California, despite his office claiming the real toll is expected to exceed $50 BILLION, while prostrating himself before Trump because California doesn’t have the money. Why?   Maybe it’s because Hollywooders don’t pay taxes because they’ve got all their cash sheltered in offshore accounts? And of course the illegal immigrants don’t pay, they just ask for more ‘benefits’.

So while the left/liberal/socialists are busily planning to orchestrate severing California from the United States, well, I imagine they are now busily buying sandbags and have put that agenda on hold.

Arrogance has a way of coming back to bit you. Some call it God’s Will, others Karma, and still others “bad luck’… but in the meantime, thousands are without power, crops are not even tallied in the destruction, and rice paddies are making a comeback.

Vineyards are swamplands, vegetables, citrus and nuts are nonexistent in many areas, while a spattering of farmers are rejoicing. Mold on vegetables could create the next wave of problems. And if you don’t think this will impact food and wine prices at the store – take a breath.

By far the worst part of this is the fact that it is a cyclical event. And each time the drought extends an additional year or so, the panic of doomsday overrides the hard fact that the government(s) current and past have done – absolutely nothing. The waters will ultimately runoff into the ocean, and the frame for a new drought period will begin.

No new reservoirs to contain the water for future droughts. And Hollywood will simply go back to it’s bashing and trashing, hammering and clammering in full arrogant regalia.

And while California is flooding – Somalia is in such a state of drought that food shortages are expected to contribute to hundreds of thousands of deaths this year alone. Where’s George?   The new government is asking for more aid, more food, more clean water, which is needed…. But it seems to be needed continually, there is no measure of anything being actually fixed so that the Somalians can support themselves.

And in the meantime, the terrorist group that is just a small faction of non-terror, has put over one half of Somalia’s population into extreme, critical malnourishment!  descending on major cities begging for food and water, …  where is the elite Hollywood?  Where is Rothschild?  Where are all those arrogant intellectuals who demand Globalization?  Are they sharing their money?   Where is the Clinton Foundation?  Gates?  Buffett?

And so, we continue to give them more and more fish instead of teaching them how to fish… and it still – isn’t working.

These are failed policies that we beat and beat and never fix… for decades. And then we wonder – why?

Doomsday Seed Vault – Comedy Relief

Has anyone considered the idiotic comedy of having our planet’s ‘doomsday seed vault’ located in the Arctic?

Today the vault holds nearly a million seeds intended to be available should earth experience a catastrophic event leaving our planet decimated of organic life… Of course if that were the case, then any remaining soil would be contaminated, there would be ozone and pollution at levels that could not sustain life, and waterways would be minor streams filled with various contaminants.

So where are they planning to plant these seeds? And if they are all housed in the Arctic, how would someone get there? How would they transport the seeds back to an area supporting life? Where are the greenhouses? How will greenhouses function if there is no power? Who will tend the ‘seeds’?

The idea seems a bit comical when considering the events that would trigger the need.

The vault is located on an Arctic island where access is considered ‘secure’. It’s funding comes from the Norwegian government and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.   It claims to have ‘robust security systems’ in case anyone is thinking about looting their seeds.

To their credit, they adamantly state that no GMO seeds will be stored.

Lufthansa offers an expedited flight from Seattle to the Svalbard Airport, 49 hours, should Bill Gates need to make a quick getaway to grab some seeds. Of course he would still need to rent a boat to get to the island and once there, given there are no roads, transportation is via a snowmobile. All during massive global crisis…

So in a global crisis, hundreds of snowmobiles would trek across the terrain hauling seeds to waiting boats that would gruel through a raging ocean to Norway where planes would be waiting at the airport to evacuate the seeds all across the world – as the planet is dying…

But then they chose the island because for its balmy temperatures ranging from about -20’ to a high of 39’, not factoring wind and humidity which drop the ‘feels like’ 10 or more degrees.

Good intentions not withstanding, due to the cost of the structure, Norway has a law that provides artwork must be present and thus commissioned an artist who created a stunning light display on the face of the vault.

Just a little comedy relief for the day – Smile!

EPA and FDA – Corrupted and Trashed

In their infancy, as in ‘Once Upon A Time’, the FDA and the EPA had high standards and great benefits. They were created as monitors for the public as a result of scams and corruption that caused injurious harm and/or resulted in death.

Today, the same agencies that were created to save us from corruption, collude to defraud us. With burgeoning budgets and unnecessary employees, they have become just another toxic part of the government landscape.

How quickly we forget. It was just 3+ years ago in 2013 when the federal government shutdown occurred. The EPA itself declared that of its roughly 16,200 employees, only 1600 would be considered ‘essential’. That translates to 93% were considered useless or nonessential by its own executives.

In the corporate world that is called – waste.

In fact, the shutdown – which occurred during Obama’s watch and was not Bush’s fault – found that 800,000 government workers were actually considered ‘nonessential’.

The FDA furloughed 45% of its workforce as nonessentials.

The problem is the inherent evolution when oversight becomes a back scratching, personal vendetta, agenda, or simple bribe. And suddenly, it is the new normal and fixing the situation means gutting it and starting fresh. It is the same bureaucracy that mashed out a disastrous Obamacare that is bankrupting middle class. Ben Carson actually read the 20,000+ page mandate, something apparently no one else in Congress chose to do before signing it into law.

The “D” part of the FDA is no different. We have come to accept the host of possible side effects of drugs, many of which include cancer and death.   Supposedly, the benefit outway’s the risk. But then we are also plagued with fraudulent studies conducted by corrupted officials and faked studies by corrupted officials, studies that omit data, and studies that are just plain ridiculous.

How do you fix a broken system?

  1. you don’t ask the good ole boys…
  2. you follow through on consequences
  3. you make the consequence outweigh the corruption
  4. you increase competition in the generic market
  5. you create a better more definitive definition for ‘efficacy’
  6. look internally into the qualifications and value of staff
  7. oversee the approval process with science instead of politics
  8. fast track litigation consequences – put the fear of God into the pharma’s

The EPA is perhaps – worse. With even larger nonessentials, backlashes of ‘accidents’, nonqualified staff, and pending lawsuits, the EPA is a verifiable ‘MESS’.

How do you fix the EPA?

  1. fire everyone and start over!

Let the bludgeon come down. Sometimes an organization is just too messed up to ‘fix’, and needs to be eliminated so as to start afresh. Riddled with waste and corruption the EPA has exerted a power freak, control freak agenda that is borderline absurd. To the point that they just recently relaxed the rules that now allow a homeowner to collect rainwater on their own property. (All the water in the sky and ground belong to the government…)

The water-grab by the EPA is so vast that the it allows them to control construction, property evictions, egregious fines, and more in their oversight of streams, ponds, and even runoff. Most opponents consider this to be a tyrannical power grab that puts the public at mercy for water and the government as the King.

Where there is government – there is no completion – and thus the power-grab is complete.

Fracking – Killing Our Planet… Softly

Between 1847 and 1994 Texas experienced 110 earthquakes, or roughly less than 1 per year. So far this year there have been 66 according to Earthquake Tracker.

In 2015, Oklahoma experienced 907 earthquakes, in 2014 there were 585 and in 2013 there were 109. Between 1978 and 1999 the average number of quakes per year was 1.6.

Between 1915 and 2015, Colorado had about 394 earthquakes, or about 4 per year. This year we have had 25… so far.

While the media calls them ‘man-made’, they refuse to call them for what many of them are, a consequence of wastewater injections from fracking and oil. It’s kind of like calling Islamic terrorists, hooligans who just need a hug. And yet our esteemed Climate Crucifiers have no problem attributing global warming to every person on this planet. Why the hypocrisy?

The 300,000 fracking wells in the US currently provide 67% of all our natural gas needs. But it comes at a cost that may or may not out weigh the benefits. Wastewater is injected into the ground, but this injection is filled with volatile chemicals that are considered ‘trade secrets’ by the industry… Really? Upwards of 40,000 gallons of chemicals are used per fracking and include up to 600 different chemicals in the fracking fluid. Some of those include; benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides and xylene. All of which are considered hazardous and carcinogenic causing cancer, organ damage, nervous system disorders, birth defects and death. Methane Gas is by far considered to cause the greatest damage to the environment and is a by-product of fracking. Methane Gas is considered to be the main cause of ‘man-made climate change, ie global warming’. That would mean if the climate crucifiers really want to halt global warming they need to add wastewater injections to the modus – something they will never do.

Some of the chemicals are rather funny given their commercial use: wood parquet adhesive, stain remover, deodorant, hair conditioner, varnish, volumizing conditioner, sunscreen, lotion, dog shampoo, tire repair, roach killer, haircolor shine, etc… So if my hair conditioner can help to create earthquakes, I think I need to consider what it is doing to my scalp! YUCK.

The earth is angry!

But even this doesn’t compare to the amount of precious water that is expended in order to supply us with natural gas – low estimates of 1200 gallons to high estimates of 9.6 million gallons of water per well, depending on the location. Given water is by far more valuable than natural gas, why are we continuing to deplete this most precious resource?   Water and droughts are a world concern.  Oil land natural gas are not.  While we need oil and gas for nearly everything in a developed society, we can not survive at all – without water.  There is a difference.

But then it becomes clear: we ‘export’ more natural gas than we import – why would we export at all if we don’t have enough to supply households 100%? Because the price paid by various countries is considerably higher than the cost.  As the saying goes, money is not the root of all evil, but it sure can make some dervish devils out of its holders.  Balance could be a better criteria.  Tell the truth!  If the reasoning is an 800% profit margin then don’t tell us it is energy independence!. 

Wastewater injections are not just a natural gas phenomena, oil wells are a culprit as well.  Find an alternative?  The current injection method is not what was used ’50 years ago’, and the current number of wells is not ‘what it was 50 years ago’!  Multitudes magnified thousands fold – do make a difference in the outcome!  Fracking over known fault-lines – isn’t terribly conscientious.

Despite the drop in the price of natural gas over the decade, the industry is not too nervous about their profit margin given that We The People continue to subsidize the oil and gas industry to the tune of $4.8 billion per year, most of which goes to the ‘Big Oil Conglomerates’ – Exxon, Chevron, Shell, BP, and Conoco Phillips.

WAIT! Shell oil is based in the Netherlands and BP in the UK – so what the heck are American taxpayers doing subsidizing oil companies that don’t even pay taxes in the US? Oh bother… truth.

Back to earthquakes.

It isn’t all bad though – the oil companies do support nearly 10 million employees and the big three from the US pay an effective tax rate far above any other industry! The price of a gallon of gas in Europe is easily double what we pay in the US, and the oil and gas industry pumps more than $500 billion into the US economy annually.  Nothing to sneeze at!

But at what point do we consider the negatives of wastewater injection as over-riding the positives of natural gas companies making hefty profits on exports?   While profits are the mainstay of capitalism, stewardship should be a n equal concern.  Does that mean I think wind turbines are the answer?  No.  Does that mean solar is the answer?  Decades have proven that answer – No.  Do I have the answer?  No.  But all you Engineers!  Seems to me you could have an answer – if you wanted.

As the price of oil and natural gas remain ‘tanked’, which translates to lower tax revenue paid to the government, which translates to higher subsidies, there comes a point of financial collapse in basic supply and demand ideals. To the point that we actually, effectively probably pay more than Europe.  So, at what point is this simply calamitous? We import our gas from Canada, they aren’t harboring ISIS or shouting death to America, so is it really such a bad thing to “trade” from their stockpiles?

Separately, The CDC has yet to investigate the health ramifications of the chemical processes used in fracking – at all, despite the known carcinogens and environmental damage. Instead, they chose to create a massive orgy of fear around the Zika virus which has been around for over 60 years, including in the US. But you see, in the Zika instance, pharma saw the opportunity to reap major profits! The Fracking industry would see losses if the truth were parlayed. Profit makes the world go ’round.  It is a good thing.  But in all things their needs to be balance.  And personally, I kind of like the planet that God created.  God gave us a responsibility – not to shirk – to tend to this planet.  

So when you go before the gates of Heaven and defend that all the earthquakes were God’s hand in the making and cause, when He shakes His head, are you going to argue with Him?

We have become a Pay for Play in all our corporate and government institutions and just never realized how deep it goes. It’s all something of a shell game or Ponzi scheme, because in the end, after lost revenues, subsidies, ‘medical issues’, and tax havens, our effective price per gallon is more likely to be in the $8 to $10 range, well above Europe. And natural gas?  Well given we sell more than we retain, at the very least be honest – it isn’t about energy independence, it’s about making a buck.  

The pump price is simply a mirage to give us a feel good glow

Bayer-Monsanto; A merger made in Hell

The Bayer-Monsanto merger is more than a merger, it has the potential to become THE agricultural giant of the world. And anytime one giant has the power over our entire food supply, we need to take notice!

  1. If TTIP passes, BaySanto would have the ability to force it’s GMO on everyone.
  2. US farm subsidies now cost taxpayers over $20 billion per year thanks to a new bill pushed through Congress with little attention in 2014.
  3. The largest subsidies currently go to corn and soybean mega-farms
  4. Many of the subsidized grain crops are for animal feed
  5. Approximately 90-95% of all corn and soybean in the US is GMO
  6. In 2003 Bayer bought/partnered with GW Pharmaceuticals, a UK based firm that makes drugs derived from cannabis which is distributed in Canada and the UK.
  7. The medicinal cannabis market will continue to grow exponentially and the need for a GMO product laced with Monsanto pesticides will be the outcome.

    Who benefits from the current farm subsidies?

Monsanto, Cargill, Dreyfus, ADM, the largest corporate farms, and feedlot operators. The largest subsidy for corn is given to CHS, formally Harvest States Cooperatives. They have assets totaling $15.2 billion and annual revenues of $34.6 billion. Their Agriculture Subsidies 1995 to 2014? $49,489,434. Walker Place Farms has received nearly $20million. NAPI Farms about $20million.

In 2016 there is a glut of corn and soy and it is predicted to continue thru 2025, according to the USDA. What that means is that subsidies to these farmers will be even higher as corn and soy prices are less than half what they were a few years ago.

According to Marion Nestle, who has been writing and teaching at NYU, “If you examine how its (the 2014 Food Bill) incentives line up, you quickly see that it strongly favors the industrial agriculture of the Midwest and South over that of the Northeast and West; methods requiring chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides over those that are organic and sustainable; and commodity crops for animal feed and ethanol rather than “specialty” crops (translation: fruits and vegetables) for human consumption.”

Imagine the next subsidized BaySanto crop – cannabis. Because if cannabis laced pharmaceuticals are the next drug generation, I would bet this mega-giant will be planting crops now – perhaps in the Ukraine land-grabs or the Africa land-grabs, subsidized by the US Agriculture with crop farms here.

Nice package.

While feeding the world is becoming more and more problematic, lacing our food with cancer causing toxins has aggravated our healthcare system to the point of no return. Despite billions on research, cancer rates are rising. The US now has the dubious honor of having the 7th highest cancer rates in the world with prostate, breast, lung and colon continuing as the most prevalent. More GMO = more cancer.

Additionally, GMO products consistently are shown to have less nutrient value, thus while we consume food – it provides less and less nutritional value, we become more susceptible to diseases, obesity rises, healthcare costs rise, and people will die. A vicious cycle emerges that would seem to have nothing to do with The People, and everything to do with The Profit. And in the meantime, the small farmers, the organic farmers, are continually pummeled – which is why their cost and their pricing is so much higher.

A scientist was recently driving through soy country in Missouri and noticed the crops were curled up and dead. Apparently, a new and improved herbicide produced by Monsanto called Dicamba, is the culprit. It is being used to kill weeds that are prominent as a result of their new GMO soy seed, Xtend. It is being used because the glyphosate in Monsanto Roundup is no longer as effective against certain weeds, and so Monsanto set out to find a better seed that could withstand the toxins of Dicamba.

Unfortunately, Dicamba vaporizes quickly and blows with the wind to neighboring farms, to neighboring streams and reservoirs, and to crops that aren’t subsidized – like vegetables. Monsanto blames the farmers. Lawsuits have been filed against neighbor farms, but the fines are so ridiculously low, $1000, no one cares and the spraying continues unabated.

A weed expert studied Dicamba and its ability to kill the culprit pigweed – after three generations of seed, he found that Dicamba was no longer effective against the weed. Like insects – weeds develop immunity – and thrive.

Monsanto is well aware of this cycle. Bayer has already moved into the herbicide, insecticide, fungacide market. And they are no angel when it comes to the GMO market having settled a lawsuit in Missouri awarding $750million to farmers when their LibertyLink GMO rice contaminated neighboring farms and resulted in 11,000 plaintiffs filing suit.

It would appear the two companies are equally driven by an ethic that does not favor – you and I.

ZIKA – A Monsanto, Syngenta, Vaccine Fraud?

According to a report by the National Institute of Health, vaccinating pregnant women for the flu provided no measurable difference in the determination of contracting the flu or having any risks therein. In addition, hospital visits for vaccinated and unvaccinated women were no different. In other words, the flu vaccine provided no measurable protection from any respiratory illness.

However, according to Mayo Clinic, and the US Department of Health, the flu vaccine was the triggering cause of Guillain Barre. Numerous lawsuits have been filed and settled. Given that in 1986 the pharmaceuticals were relieved of any liability for their vaccines, who pays?   The government, through a fund supported by taxpayers – you and I – at a cost of over $2 billion.

Included in the inserts for the flu vaccine that warn of potential side effects is listed – Guillain Barre.  Oops.

Given the US has the largest instance of both Guillain Barre and microcephaly – and the smallest incidence of Zika virus mosquitoes, the link seems rather feeble at best.

In a report issued by the Oxford Journal in 2013, there was a direct link between Guillain Barre and the H1N1 flu Vaccine.

Why the attempt to create a new causal trend in the Zika virus?

A. By diverting the causal affect from vaccines to a mosquito – there go the lawsuits…

B. Zika will create a new vaccine – profit motivation and eliminate the flu vaccine fears.

C. Further destabilization of the Brazilian economy

D. Glyphosate poisoning

E.  All of the ABOVE

In 1975 the cost of vaccinating a child for all illnesses was $10. It is estimated by the National Institute of Health that cost will be $1225 per child as of 2020.

As of 2012, a child received 49 vaccinations before the age of 6. As of 2016, there are now 76 vaccine doses administered to a child between birth and 18 with an additional 271 waiting approval by the FDA. And there are no studies that show the interaction of vaccines and their potential risks. The studies only cover a singular vaccine administration.

The largest vaccine pharma is GlaxoSmithKline based in the UK with annual revenues over $35 billion compared to roughly $13.7 billion in 1999. Their nearest competitor, Bristol-Meyers-Squibb had revenue of $16.5 billion in 2015, down from $20 billion in 1999. An independent organization provides ratings of the pharma industry according to their improvement in making vaccines and medicines more available – Access to Medicine Index – funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. GlaxoKlineSmith is ranked No. 1 despite eight major lawsuits for; adulturated drugs, false advertising, antitrust, kickbacks, market manipulation, bribery, tax fraud, price fixing and an ongoing investigation for foreign corruption and fraud.

And while pharma profits are a known grunge affect, and Bill Gates hand in the till is also well established, there are shadow political and GMO ploys as well:

I.   Soros and the US were backing the loss of Dilma Rouseff, President of Brazil, in the 2014 election cycle. The favored insert was Aecio Neves as their chosen President. Why? To put a hole in the BRICS who pose a very steadfast opposition to the Soros agenda. Rouseff is steadfastly aligned with the BRIC nations, and Neves would have changed that alliance to an EU/US bloc. The loss of Neves in 2014 left an angry hole and every viable means to create destruction within the country has been the pinnacle of action since. It’s called – revenge.

Enter – Zika, another mosquito born virus that has been around for decades. Enter the creation of a pandemic. Enter – warnings against Brazil travel. Enter assertions that the virus is ‘linked’ to a host of diseases that could damage children envitro, and now in addition, cause a rare neurological disorder, Guillain Barre. Warnings circulate NOT to visit Brazil! Warnings circulate to ban the Olympics.

Who are the BRIC countries? Brazil, China, Russia and India. They stand in firm alliance and offer a viable opponent to the World Order of Soros. Without their defeat, Soros goal can not be achieved.

To date, according to the CDC, there are no locally generated Zika virus cases in the US– and 107 travel related. And while the fear media claim that upwards of 4 million people are infected with the virus, it is an abstract number given that according to WHO: a) 80% of people bitten have no symptoms, b) a large percentage simply get flu symptoms, c) few even consult a doctor. There are NO commercially available laboratories for testing the Zika virus – the only source is through the CDC as well as a ‘few’ health departments in the US and one in Brazil.

II.   Oxitec is a British biotech company that has been releasing the genetically modified mosquitoes in Brazil. They also claim to be able to diagnose the Zika virus. Coincidentally, their CEO AND Chief Scientific Officer, were formally with Syngenta, the GMO competitor to Monsanto. Their Regulatory Affairs Manager formerly worked in the UK obtaining commercial food approval for GM crops in Europe. She was instrumental in the botched ‘Golden Rice’ debacle, and her most recent post was with Syngenta. Head of Business Development was a former marketing guru for – sigh… Syngenta.

You see, Brazil is the second largest producer of GMO crops and pesticide use in the WORLD.

Which bodes the question – are Monsanto, Syngenta, and Bill Gates creating a false epidemic to hide the fact that glyphosate pesticides are truly the culprit?

Zika Virus – Zeroing in…?

In 2014 with Dengue Fever considered an epidemic, Brazil released GM mosquitoes to fake out the aedes aegypti mosquitoes and hopefully contain the rising epidemic. The fake mosquitoes were sterile and once they wooed all the females, the species would quickly die out. But that didn’t happen. Within a few months of the release of the GM mosquitoes, a new type of mutated chikungunya virus appeared, more deadly than ever. It migrated to the Caribbean Islands, Puerto Rico and Florida where it has infected a small portion of the population.

For years Brazil has continued its fogging method of dousing entire neighborhoods with insecticides to try and control the rising mosquito population. But the insecticides have their own host of health risks and problems. According to a report by CCE and CERI, the use of insecticide only created a more viral and formidable mosquito immune to the once lethal spray. A Super mosquito was born.

In the meantime, more radical spraying attempted to disway the growing population of mosquitoes. There are four pesticides used to control mosquitoes; Scourge, Anvil, Permethrin and Malathion. Each of these have some level of toxicity to humans and are linked to liver and thyroid diseases, immune deficiency, endocrine problems, tumor growth, cancers of the reproductive organs, prostate and breast cancer, and birth defects. The birth defects include; Down Syndrome, cleft palette, spina bifida, club foot, heart defects, autism, learning disabilities, and infertility. Those defects were found in women exposed to household use of pesticides, their exposure was limited.

These same pesticides are lethal to fish, invertebrates, and wildlife.

Could the introduction of a GM mosquito have led to the creation of a Super Monster mosquito? And could the birth defect, microcephaly, be related to exposure to massive amounts of pesticides?

While many media articles make the statement that the Zika virus caused the microcephaly cases in Brazil, that has not been proven, it is at this stage a ‘theory’ that is being investigated. Birth defects in poor nations is a problem and has been for decades if not centuries. Micrcephaly is a neurological disorder that could just as easily be caused by the toxins in the pesticides, or incest, or poor nutrition during pregnancy, or a host of other issues. Or it could be caused by the mosquito.

The reality is – no one knows much of anything at this stage which is why a vaccine could be years away from being created and approved. The one absolute that they do know is that the actual virus is no different than a mild flu and that 80% of those bitten by the mosquito don’t get the virus or any symptoms at all. Period.

Instilling fear is not useful. Instilling caution and fact is useful.

A recent post by Betsy McCaughey, PhD, would seem rather uninformed about the Zika virus in specifics, Brazil’s fogging, the failure of the GM mosquito’s, the mosquito prevalence in the US, and pesticides. Instead, she would have the US lathered in a fog of pesticides that are known toxins which will douse ‘everyone’ in a fume and funnel of health hazards…

Not cool.

Polluted Tap Water – PCB’s and Lead Poisoning

Seattle is suing Monsanto for polluting the Lower Duwamish River. The river feeds into Puget Sound.

The pollutant?  PCB.  PCB’s are known to cause cancer, reproductive disorders, nervous system disorders, endocrine disorders, and damage to the immune system and were being named as a possible health hazard as far back as 1930. Lead poisoning has been documented to have occurred as far back as 6500 BC. We have known – and ignored.

PCB was used in the production of plastics, adhesives, fire retardants, pesticides, ink, lubricants and more. While Monsanto was responsible for 99% of all PCB use, it was banned by the EPA in 1977. A plant in Sauget Illinois was the largest producer of PCB’s. And while Monsanto knew of the toxicity levels, they failed to do anything – continuing to dump excesses and mass produce for profit.

Anniston, Alabama was the site of one such Monsanto dumping and ultimately won a $700 million lawsuit in 2003 – 26 years after the chemical was banned.

A privately owned quarry in Southern Wales was the allowed dumping site of Monsanto between 1967 and 1972. Despite a 2005 report that found the site contained over 75 different toxic chemicals, Monsanto refused to take responsibility for the pollution and cleanup. The Wales Environmental Agency decided that the least costly remediation was to place an engineered cap on the quarry at a cost of 1.5 million pounds. Monsanto denied responsibility but agreed to pay a ‘portion’ of the cost.

Sauget, Illinois is a suburb of St. Louis. Not really a true town, it is a company town where polluting companies came to find root from regulations. The town was incorporated by Monsanto so that it could define its own regulations and as a result became a US dumping ground for multiple pollutants.

Sauget is now considered an industrial disaster. A creek traveling thru Sauget is said to be so polluted that when an animal came in contact with the sludge water, they died within 24 hours from chemical burns. The EPA erected a fence around the creek. The creek feeds into the Mississippi River.

Sauget is the site of two EPA Superfunds. The Lower Duwamish River is the site of an EPA Superfund. And despite the fact that Monsanto was the polluter, despite the fact that Monsanto continues to pollute, despite the fact that Monsanto is worth a net $13 billion – the Superfund Fund is empty and thus taxpayers are responsible for the cleanup cost.

How is it that Monsanto continues to skate liability while oil companies pay?

Is it possible that the crime rates of St. Louis are linked to decades of ingested pollutants?

The mayor of Flint Michigan is asking for Federal remedial funds to deal with the ‘behavioral issues’ that will arise as a result of the lead poisoning. Because children exposed to lead have significant learning disabilities, communication impairment and aggressive behavior issues.  Issues that have actually been documented for centuries as a result of blood lead levels.

Since 1901, the murder rate in St. Louis has tripled. In a 1993 report conducted by the Upper Mississippi River Water Quality Initiative, the toxicity of the river was reason for concern for the safety of residents along its channel. The primary toxin cited was PCB, but also included heavy metals and pesticides. The report cites two primary sources; agricultural runoff of pesticides (Monsanto) and Industrial pollutants (Monsanto). The report states that despite PCB’s being banned, they seemed to have actually accumulated and persisted in the environment and in sediments.

In 2015, the St. Louis water was once again afoul with the smell of geosmin. Geosmin is in itself not toxic but it reveals that the water that has this odor is surface water, potentially polluted with sediment and all the same toxins that are now in the Mississippi River having flowed through sediment to get there.

While water quality has improved as treatment facilities have improved their measuring capabilities and their extraction techniques, these measures are relatively new. Decades of pollutants streamed through the taps and were ingested by children. The consequences of which we may just now be made aware as we learn more about the causes and effects. Unfortunately, the damage is done.

While Monsanto is a well known progenitor of pollutants and toxic chemicals, it continues to – skate.  Why? They have the protection of the EPA and the FDA.  Numerous articles cite former Monsanto employees and/or executives who later worked for the EPA and FDA.  A rather obvious conflict of interest.

*Lidia Watrud filed two patents on behalf of Monsanto in 1986 and again in 1999. She worked as a Microbial Researcher and Biotech Researcher for Monsanto. For the EPA she worked as a Principle Investigator, Environmental Effects Lab Researcher and is currently a Manager for New Technologies for USDA at the EPA. She is currently on the Board of Monsanto.

*Linda Fisher currently VP at DuPont for Health and Environmental Safety formerly was second in command at the EPA and before that a VP at Monsanto.

Within the EPA’s tasked $8.6 billion budget for 2016, they state they are tasked with providing access to clean, safe drinking water as well as a reliable and effective wastewater system.  According to their 2016 budget, they are providing dedicated funding of $4.05 billion to be allocated to “Protecting America’s Waters”.

The EPA lists as one of its seven major accomplishments; “instrumental in improving the health of rivers, lakes and coastal waters. It has stopped billions of pounds of pollution from fouling the water…”   However when reviewing the top 50 most polluted waterways in 1996, and the top most polluted waterways today – there seems to be no change…

In the world of business, that does not represent an accomplishment or success.

In fact it is criminal.

Climate Change – 2015 Hottest Year on Record

The claim that 2015 is the hottest recorded year in history is – well – pathetic, it is Environmental Politics. Even looking it up on Wikipedia, we can see this is a ridiculous claim by the following graph.

 

 

 

The claim is actually based on a relatively short period of time from a scientific analysis, which makes it rather ‘unscientific’. It dates from the mid 1800’s to the present. While the graph above presents a significantly different picture of overall patterns and illustrates we are well below a baseline of -0- and more likely in a ‘trend’.

IN another graph that purports to simulate the temperatures and CO2 levels since the beginning of time, aka 4.6 billion years ago… overall CO2 has steadily decreased dramatically, and mean temperatures have shown a peak cap and a plummeting drop every one to two million years. Even more interesting is that we are currently in a trough that is way overdo to spike dramatically according to normal cyclical fluctuations.

That chart can be found at:

Within the temperature and climate studies we have what scientists term, two ‘naturally occurring events’, ‘El Nino’ and ‘La Nina’, one represents warmer ocean currents, the other cooler, and they are both relatively cyclical. So, what are the consequences of an El Nino, as we are currently within its cycle?

  1. It puts a strain on the fishing industry as the cold nutrient rich waters are suppressed by the reduction of easterly trade winds and a warmer surface ocean.
  2. Rain driven commodities in South Africa, Australia, India, Chile, New Zealand and Japan are stunted giving benefit to commodities in the US, Canada, Mexico and Argentina.
  3. Mosquito born diseases rise
  4. Because of changes in the climate, some countries experience greater famine which can lead to changes in economic growth, and/or civil uprisings.

The last La Nina event was in 2012 which coincides with California’s three ½ year drought, only to be flooded as we experience El Nino. Prior to that, La Nina occurred in 2008, 2006, 2001, 1999, 1996, and then a wet span of El Nino occurred from 1988 to 1996, a relatively long period comparatively. We have relatively little recorded information historically as it wasn’t a recognized phenomena until the late 1800’s by a Chilean using information obtained by local fishermen. So, like temperature and CO2 levels, El Nino events have a recorded life of a mere 125 years or so.

While California would have us believe this last drought was the most severe in history, this too is media mumbo-jumbo. Studies of the last 200 years based on tree rings and sediment evidence, have provided scientists with an historical value for drought periods. The most extensive droughts occurred between 850 and 1050 AD and again between 1100 and 1300 AD. In fact, since 1300, we have been experiencing a wetter than average condition.

And while it does appear we are on the cusp of the beginning of a spike in global temperatures, if these scientific analyses are correct, then instead of trying to change what is inevitable, perhaps we should be mitigating the absolute affects this spike can cause.  As in – Boy Scouts ‘be prepared’.

As in all analyses, where you begin your graph dramatically alters the perception of trend. And for some unknown reason, instead of simply presenting the facts, scientists and the media like to advocate for fear mongering and doom instead of truth and solution.

But then keeping people in a place of fear – is a terrorist tactic to create and maintain ‘control’. Whether it is done by ISIS or by our own governments and politicians, the ultimate affect serves an agenda. Given that California has done little to nothing over the last 125 years to solve their continuing ‘drought’ problem, I would venture it is a political cause to perpetuate doom and gloom without ever really addressing a solution based on historical trends and Truth ‘science’.

Fear is the agenda – because fear cripples.
