A Report From The Nation Of Change – It\'s Consequences

A report from the Nation of Change shows that the 2012 Farm Bill is taking shape in the halls of the United States Congress. Is this good news for the world and cancer sufferers, or not? Will Monsanto once again create such fear as they did in Vermont, with treats of litigation? For that matter, can they threaten Congress with litigation?

It's reported that the biotechnology firms have spent a massive 572 million dollars on campaign contributions and lobbying over the course of ten years. To equate this to 50 kg bags of maize or corn meal in this country; that would be 43 million families fed for a month, that's our total population. It seems sad that money of this nature's spent, so that a company can make massive profits, and risk the lives of millions.

If these companies, like Monsanto, can spend money on campaign contributions and lobbyist, to block a Bill being passed in congress, what are the 1 000 000 signatures collected in California alone, and the 850 000 letters received by the FDA actually worth? The public are the ones that vote in the members of their governments, is their voice meaningless against that of the biological companies.

An article by Sister Kaite who has recently joined Street Articles wrote her first article titled “Cancer – It Only Lives Inside Of Us”, expounding the compound Salvestrol found in certain foods, that is able to fight cancer cells. I naturally research more on the subject and I'm astounded to find how this naturally occurring compound, is actually being destroyed by Genetic Modification and chemical applications. Both of these are causing cancer and at the same time destroying the very naturally cancer fighting compounds produced by the plants.

Is it possible for these companies to continue, when all these facts are becoming common knowledge? All the public is asking is that GM foods be labelled as such, so that they have the right of choice to buy or not. How is a person suffering an allergy meant to know if the food they are eating is the cause of their problem, without proper labels. Is this giant of industry so unsure of its product that it must block the knowledge from the public? Do they know the danger they place people in and this is why they don't want the labels, for fear of litigation?

The Senate must now vote on this label issue, with America now being the only first world country that is not demanding it. The United Nations, for what they're worth, have, after 18 years of debate, agreed that countries were free to label these GM product goods if they so wished. 18 years to decide this? Who's paying their back hands? Us in the third world countries stand little to no chance, these big conglomerates will still be able to dump their GM products on people who are unaware of the dangers, collect their money and leave the already suffering countries to suffer more health issues.

The article by Sister Kaite, is well worth the read, and her website just as interesting. I still feel that these biological companies messing with nature, are in fact creating weapons of mass destruction. It might be necessary for the nation that declared war on another, because there was a thought of W.M.D. needs to look in at their own companies, that are from within trying to destroy them.

The only thing that interest these companies is selling to people attracting them only by taste and convincing that this is also connected with health benefits. It is criminal...

Interesting article Rob. I hope you keep updating us on this. On a related note, there has been a big push to ban corporate farms here in the states. Couple states have already banned them and as you state in your article, this process is one of the reasons protesters are using to get his ban moving. hybrid seeds are another reason. Maybe people are waking up a bit, one can hope, right?

I agree Shawn, there are more and more states beginning to make inroads to the banning or marking of products genetically modified. That to me is the most important let the products be marked then at least one has the choice of wither you purchase them or not... This way if you are not happy about using them you don't have to... "the right to choose"...

I'm sure these companies know the side effects of their processed products. But their primary goal is to sell, so more produce is better and how they can keep customers to buy over and over again is to add a formula that is super delightful to the taste regardless of its effects to the human body. Greed is a dangerous thing.

I am all in for the revolution, but does it just fall on deaf ears Rob, are these companies just to big or they just know how to get around justice, if we know what about our governments they must know, but what do they do about it.....how many signatures is enough how many deaths and folks dieing a slow and pain ful death because of the food they eat......wait till they control our water then were in for some real trouble...only the rich drink clean water....the rest fight for the mud puddle......injustice marches on.....if I had a rocket launcher...make a good song...lol......bang....

These companies are just too big with governments in their pockets enabling them to do as they like... we down the food chain are like mushrooms, kept in the dark and fed shit... do as we tell you, is the government attitude, forget that we vote them in, but then do we, or is it the big company money?

There really is a disconnect. For decades now, big businesses have become more and more threatening to their customers, their regulators, and even themselves. Some few cronies in some penthouse board meetings are turning the ship of civilization on into a perfect storm of negligence, toxicity, pollution and insanity. No one seems to have a solution. Eventually a tipping point WILL be reached--I just hope I'm not in the streets when that day comes--a lot of ordinary people like myself will be slaughtered in the streets by paid lackeys of the super-wealthy, before we finally smother them by sheer force of numbers... Another good one, Rob--thanks.

It's criminal. Has to be stopped. Too many people are getting cancer. I'm dealing with it too at the moment, which is just one of the reasons I have been doing so much research on the subject. Read Sister Kaite's article. Very good. I'm looking into Salvestrol. Your wife should check it out too, Rob.

Have done already, and will be investigating further... I have another article awaiting approval.. Syngenta is being prosecuted for their GM corn. If this is not proof enough that these giants aren't hiding info from us then I don't know what is.. this labelling needs approval so that these products can be avoided... Don't tell me you have got cancer... please, not you..?

Yes, I've had a recurrence. Otherwise, strong as a horse. Working with alternative therapies, including nano technology. Have discovered all kinds of things that are available to people and having excellent results. Never wanted to learn about it first hand, however. But for sure, I'm putting my money where my mouth is. Happy to help others too. Other than this, I've never been ill. Like your wife, I also don't smoke or drink. I'm sure we're being poisoned.

How right you are David, it worries me that a big conglomerate like Monsanto can lead the government around by the nose, my wife has suffer from three different cancers for the last 18 years, yet she has never smoke, no drink or alcohol, and generally is the healthy eater. What then can it be that she is the first in her family to get cancer? Food she eats, GMO products etc... this is a terrible tragic situation that is being allowed to carry on....
