Big Pharma Takeover of Food and your Health

Genetic modification of plants (and animals) is very unnatural. By consuming GMO plants and animals (who have been fed GMO crops), humans are changing their own biological construction. Agriculture is dominated by pharmaceutical corporations who will not state this on their products.
Big-pharma provides the seeds and pesticides to kill weeds. Glyphosate originated as a lone surviving bacteria in a chemical weapons dump, subsequently utilised by Monsanto to kill all weeds except for those sprayed with the 'weapon surviving bacteria'! Of course, anything killing weeds cannot be too good for the vegetables either! In countries like India farmers are forced to buy GMO seeds every year as they don't replicate. When all the seeds are owned by one corporation, they have almost total control of the global food. Codex Alimentarius is such a project.
"Who controls the food supply controls the people; who controls the energy can control whole continents; who controls money can control the world.” ~ Henry Kissinger
Its all about big pharma corporate profiteering, not feeding billions; whereas what we need is more farmers learning and redeveloping sustainable farming practices, which can in fact increase yields.
William Engdahl – GMO Seeds of Destruction Lecture – 2014
'Seeds of Destruction' Book PDF
This skillfully researched book focuses on the effort of a tiny socio-political American elite to gain control over the very basis of human survival: our daily bread. "Control the food and you control the people." It's no ordinary book about the perils of GMO. Engdahl takes the reader into the corridors of power, into the back rooms of labs, behind closed doors of corporate boardrooms. He cogently reveals a diabolical world of profit-driven political intrigue, government corruption and coercion, where genetic manipulation and the patenting of life forms are used to gain control over food production worldwide. If it often reads as a crime story, that should be no surprise: that is what it is. Engdahl's carefully argued critique goes far beyond the familiar controversies surrounding the practice of genetic modification as a scientific technique. An eye-opener and must-read for all those committed to social justice and World peace. http: //globalresearch.ca/books/SoD.html Paperback Book, 341 pages
Seeds of Death: Unveiling The Lies of GMOs
'The global launch of a second Green Revolution, spearheaded by genetic engineering and corrupt corporations such as Monsanto and DuPont, shows every sign of being as catastrophic as the first revolution. As the big agro-chemical complex morphs into one of the world's most powerful lobbies, educating people about the dangers of genetically modified crops, or GMOs, and the growing threats of toxic intensive agriculture can hinder GMO's domination of our food supply.'
'Seeds of Death: Unveiling the Lies of GMOs, by award-winning documentary film director Gary Null, takes on the seed cartel's propaganda and political influence to expose a fabric of lies and deceit now threatening the safety and life of every species. Predictably, GMOs will reduce sustainable agriculture and humanity's ability to meet global food demands. GMOs are founded on a baseless science, originally approved through political manoeuvring and disregard for human safety. Hundreds of scientific studies reveal GMOs' serious health risks to animals and these same adverse conditions are rapidly observed in the epidemic rise of human diseases.'
'...It depends upon massive amounts of fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides, and greater water resources. The result is soil devastation and lower crop yields.'
"The whole concept of genetically modified organisms is throwing a monkey wrench in the life on this planet and until we change that we are heading downhill at a rapid rate of speed toward our own extinction" ~ Bruce Lipton PhD, Developmental Biologist
