Altered Genes, Twisted Truth: How the Venture to Genetically Engineer Our Food Has Subverted Science, Corrupted Government, and Systematically Deceived the Public [Paperback]

This book uncovers the biggest scientific fraud of our age. It tells the fascinating and frequently astounding story of how the massive enterprise to restructure the genetic core of the world's food supply came into being, how it advanced by consistently violating the protocols of science, and how for more than three decades, hundreds of eminent biologists and esteemed institutions have systematically contorted the truth in order to conceal the unique risks of its products - and get them onto our dinner plates.

Altered Genes, Twisted Truth gives a graphic account of how this elaborate fraud was crafted and how it not only deceived the general public, but Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Barack Obama and a host of other astute and influential individuals as well. The book also exposes how the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was induced to become a key accomplice--and how it has broken the law and repeatedly lied in order to usher genetically engineered foods onto the market without the safety testing that's required by federal statute. As a result, for fifteen years America's families have been regularly ingesting a group of novel products that the FDA's own scientific staff had previously determined to be unduly hazardous to human health.

By the time this gripping story comes to a close, it will be clear that the degradation of science it documents has not only been unsavory but unprecedented - and that in no other instance have so many scientists so seriously subverted the standards they were trained to uphold, misled so many people, and imposed such magnitude of risk on both human health and the health of the environment.

Why the Bees are Dying: Is there an ancient solution to this modern problem found in classic literature?

"The only common solution would be a change in our attitude to the earth. To understand that the earth is animate, and that we are in a constant dialogue with it. And when we treat it disrespectfully, it will not remain inert, but respond in kind, as the nymphs did to Aristaeus, with the death of the bees.
Aristaeus is a hero because his journey entails the emblematic, obligatory initiation through death to rebirth. A new swarm of bees is born from the dead bulls. But the journey’s real value to the hero is a conscious recognition of his crime and the consequent refinement of his natural instincts. Its value to us is a timeless lesson to heed and emulate towards resolving our current, very pressing crisis.
Like Aristaeus, we must make a sacrifice. A sacrifice of our greed for profit. A sacrifice of our old attitudes and outdated ways of treating the earth. We must become reborn to a new consciousness that reciprocates the gifts that the earth has so generously provided. A return that will effect a balance in our relationship with nature, and a renewed blossoming in its bounty–bees included."

“Negative impact on the body is insidious and manifests slowly over time as 
inflammation damages cellular systems throughout the body.”

The main finding of the report is that glyphosate inhibits cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes, a large and diverse group of enzymes that catalyze the oxidation of organic substances. This, the authors state, is “an overlooked component of its toxicity to mammals.”
One of the functions of CYP enzymes is to detoxify xenobiotics—chemical compounds found in a living organism that are not normally produced or consumed by the organism in question. By limiting the ability of these enzymes to detoxify foreign chemical compounds, glyphosate enhances the damaging effects of those chemicals and environmental toxins you may be exposed to.'

'glyphosate residues, found in most commonly consumed foods in the Western diet courtesy of GE sugar, corn, soy and wheat, “enhance the damaging effects of other food-borne chemical residues and toxins in the environment to disrupt normal body functions and induce disease.” According to the authors:


Florida News 
A Deadly Paradox: Scientists Discover the Agent Used in Gulf Spill Cleanup Is Destroying Marine LifeThree years after the BP oil spill, new truths come to light—from deep down inside the ocean

"Three years ago, when BP’s Deepwater Horizon began leaking some 210 million gallons of Louisiana Crude into the Gulf of Mexico, the U.S. government allowed the company to apply chemical “dispersants” to the blossoming oil slick to prevent toxic gunk from reaching the fragile bays, beaches, and mangroves of the coast, where so much marine life originates. But a number of recent studies show that BP and the feds may have made a huge mistake, for which everything from microscopic organisms to bottlenose dolphins are now paying the highest price."

"There are many types of warnings that GM foods create nutritional problems  such as allergies, poison, destroying of kidneys, liver and are a contributing  factor for many new diseases. The chronic diseases increased by some 7 percent  since GM crops ave been started. The other downside of this is many diseases  take a very long time to develop.
Warning of scientists ignored! Before a decision was made to  allow GMOs into food production scientists had repeatedly warned that GM foods  can create unpredictable, hard to detect side effects of which the list is still  growing today and yet the warning of scientists was ignored.
Most safety assessments in place are too superficial to even know most of the  potential dangers from GMOs, although some health studies show growing evidence  of harm from GMOs. GM corn can damage liver and kidneys; also meat is different  raised from GM feed. Roundup can cause birth defects and genetically modified  soy a contributing factor to sterility etc. In addition to previous evidence it  is showing that BT Biopesticide, which confers insect resistance produced in GM  corn and cotton plants, is toxic to human and mammals alike and triggers immune  system responses. This type of BT toxins also entered the blood of pregnant  women and babies. There for it proves and confirms the toxin can enter our blood  supply. At the same time this also explains the rise in many diseases since BT  crop varieties were first introduced back in the late 1990s."

The Gene Revolution, The Future of Agriculture: Dr. Thierry Vrain at TEDxComoxValle

Even though this is a video, and person who is giving information to expose Monsanto, I feel uncomfortable. Mr. Thierry Vrain says the "technology is not quite working" (What?  Can be tweaked to work. Is that it?)
He is not sounding guilty and remorseful enough for my tastes.
He should be crying and begging for forgiveness.
"Some genetic pollution"??? He says!
  Our earth and it's inhabitants have been terribly polluted to points that are beyond repair, and now GMO salmon which, cannibalize each other, is about to be set lose into our oceans.
" Dr. Vrain is a scientist who studied and promoted genetically engineered crops during his career. He retired 10 years ago after a long career as a research scientist and Head of Biotechnology at Agriculture Canada’s Summerland Research Station. In his own words, he states, “When I was on the payroll, I was the designated scientist of my institute to address public groups and reassure them that genetically engineered crops and foods were safe.”
As he begins to speak, he introduces the concept of genetic engineering and two technologies, invented in the last 25 years that have completely taken over agriculture.  Over 90% of soy grown in North America is now tolerant to weed killer, engineered to withstand increasing doses of chemicals. “A major coup, a revolution in agriculture” as he calls it, going on to say, “Farmers adopted it because it is so “magic.” It has simplified their life”.
It was also a financial windfall to the biotech industry, the chemical companies and their shareholders, as it enabled record sales of these weedkillers and lines of chemical products.
It was like a green technology, it was going to allow us to perform miracles, he says, addressing how the concept of “substantial equivalence” was put forward: technology involved taking a gene, a piece of DNA, from a bacteria, a fish, and putting it in the crops, and since it looks like corn, tastes like corn, it was called “substantially equicalent” and “crops were reigsteered to be commercialized without really being tested”.  Because no one anticipated any problem.  The chemical companies even used a horticulturalist from a popular zoo to pitch their product."

Roundup Breast Cancer, GMO Papaya Disaster, Soon GMO Trees, Children are in DANGER, Monsanto and Minions War Mongers, Doritos?, BOYCOTT Everything it Seems. ...

Their insufficient attempts at follow-up studies have included

*testing too few UH seeds to provide statistically significant results,

*a pollen study by an undergraduate on the island with the least contamination

*a promise of a study by Carol Gonsalves (Dr. Gonsalves’wife) that has not materialized.

*Promises of GUS testing for papayas being available to farmers and gardeners through the Cooperative Extension service have not materialized either.

*Finally, no attempts at GMO Papaya clean-up by the responsible institutions have been made, to date.

**This pilot study shows more GMO Papaya contamination than anyone expected. **

Our recommendations include:

1. Governments around the globe should not introduce the GMO Papaya into any new growing regions. Even as a field trial, GMO Papaya cannot be contained.

2. Considering the adverse consequences of the GMO Papaya, the Hawaii Department of Agriculture should not commercially release any more GMO crops in Hawaii.

3. The University of Hawaii should clean up the GMO contamination in their non-GMO papaya seeds before selling any more.

4. GMO Papaya testing should be offered to Hawaii Island farmers and gardeners either free of charge or at a nominal cost by the University of Hawaii and PBARC/USDA (Pacific Basin Agriculture Research Center/United States Department of Agriculture), so they can rogue out GMO Papaya contamination.

5. Education about using traditional and alternative methods of Papaya ringspot virus management including introducing PRSV tolerant 3

GMOs are outlawed in Thailand, but it didn't stop him...
This is the culprit here...Not only did he develop the HOAX, but developed the GM Papaya, went on to be director of USDA in The Hawai'i area, and took the GM Papaya in his suitcases to Thailand...On a summer day in 1997 Dennis Gonsalves, a plant pathologist at Cornell University, boarded a flight to Thailand with papaya plants in his carry-on luggage. He and his colleagues had spent a decade genetically altering the plants...

"A new study confirms that Monsanto’s pesticide ‘RoundUp’ increases breast cancer cells and breaks down the bodies ability to detoxify. This can lead to a number of issues."

"A new groundbreaking study has now found that the most active ingredient in Monsanto’s best selling herbicide “Roundup” is responsible for fuelling breast cancer by increasing the number of breast cancer cells through cell growth and cell division.
The study is published in the US National Library of Medicine (4) and will soon be published in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology. Several recent studies showed glyphosate’s potential to be an endocrine disruptor. Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that can interfere with the hormone system in mammals. These disruptors can cause developmental disorders, birth defects and cancer tumours.
Glyphosate exerted proliferative effects only in human hormone-dependent breast cancer. We found that glyphosate exhibited a weaker estrogenic activity than estradiol. Furthermore, this study demonstrated the additive estrogenic effects of glyphosate and genisein which implied that the use of glyphosate-contaminated soybean products as dietary supplements may pose a risk of breast cancer because of their potential additive estrogenicity. (4)"

Did you know that more than 6,000 additives and chemicals are used by food manufacturers to process and produce our food? Today’s conventional food system is heavily dependent on toxic chemicals and synthetic inputs that pose threats to our health – especially children’s. Check out our infographic to learn more about what we’re feeding our children and the health risks associated with some of their favorite foods."

Learn who masterminded WWII, and what their plans are now..this will not surprise you. But will erase any doubts about who, what and why we are so fooled by Monsanto and the rest of GMO supporters...They are the ROOT of EVIL....@around 6mins...

BOYCOTT DORITOS... And what is up with all the different kinds of GMO corn in one bag... Exchange of Pollen?   could it mean the corn is recombining.... Is this why seeds cannot be used over again. Cause they would not be the same as the year before due pollen sharing...

Genetically Engineered Trees in Canada (They are making trees that have less strength so it is easier to mill...The part that makes a tree stand straight and strong is being manipulated. please go to article)
by Lucretia Schanfarber

"Today, nearly 100 years since these memorable words were penned, the genetic sanctity and survival of our planet’s trees are at risk. Several countries around the world, including our own Canada, have embarked upon a biotechnological journey that may be leading us down the path of genetic devastation for our natural forests and trees.

Concerns about genetically engineered foods and industrial crops continue. At the same time we must face the reality of another, potentially greater, threat to planetary biodiversity - genetically engineered (GE) trees.

Rooted in Money
Surfing the Canadian Forest Service (CFS) website (, it is disconcerting to find evidence that the federal agency entrusted with the safe keeping of our nation’s forests has become an enthusiastic supporter and promoter of genetically engineered trees.

The FAQ pages (Frequently Asked Questions) of the CFS site ask and answer the question: “Why are genetically engineered trees being produced? The objective is to produce more healthy trees on a smaller land base. Present levels in the demand for wood will double by the year 2020. Genetically engineered trees can be used in intensively managed plantations to decrease the effect of human pressure on our ecosystems while increasing the competitiveness of Canada’s forestry industry.

...Thus far, there has been no recorded release of GE trees in Canada. But there is definitely research being conducted. According to the David Suzuki Foundation(www., four “confined” GE tree research trials are underway. All located in Eastern Canada, these trials include two test plots of GE poplars, one plot of GE Black Spruce and a plot of White Spruce with an insecticidal gene from Bacillus thurningiensis (BT). Note that many scientists, including Dr. Suzuki, are concerned that pollen from outdoor GE trees can never be entirely safely confined. ”

GE Eucalyptus Trees Approved by the USDA
GMOs — by Kim Crieger Goodwin February 16, 2012

The GE Tree Company ArborGen has been given permission by the USDA to plant huge plantations of genetically engineered (GE) eucalyptus trees across seven states in the southern U.S. — Texas, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and South Carolina. These states are very well-suited for eucalyptus culture, and varieties of eucalyptus have naturalized in other areas of the United States. Eucalyptus are also used extensively as ornamentals across the warmer parts of the States, creating many opportunities for genetic contamination.
ArborGen is also requesting that trees be allowed to flower at four locations in Alabama, Florida and Mississippi, and to be kept in pots (but not allowed to flower) in two locations in South Carolina.
The GE eucalyptus trees have been engineered for more cold tolerance, to alter flowering patterns, and with resistance to the antibiotic kanamycin.
The Global Justice Ecology Project is trying to stop the introduction of these and other GE trees into our landscapes.
For more detailed information about the dangers of GE Eucalyptus read their action alert (PDF).

U.S. protest target GE trees
From Pritchard Park to the Renaissance Hotel, protesters spent nearly four hours trying to get their message across: genetically engineered trees are bad news for the environment. About 200 people participated in a rally Tuesday aimed at confronting the genetically engineered tree industry, specifically South Carolina-based ArborGen. The protesters chose Asheville because this week it is the site of the International Union of Forest Research Organization Tree Biotechnology 2013 Conference at the Renaissance Hotel. Thomas Llewellyn of Real Cooperative said other countries have been protesting genetically engineered trees for years, but the issue is relatively new to the United States.

Monsanto does NOT help the world:

1 - Monsanto purposely puts small farmers out of business

2 - Monsanto has multiple connections to the government

3 - Monsanto invented the toxic chemicals that they spray on our food, which they own.

"Roundup disrupts the manufacture of necessary amino acids by your gut bacteria. Reduced L-arginine = lower Nitric Oxide = more waste and garbage in your cardiovascular system.
Nitric Oxide keeps your cardio vascular system clean. Nitric Oxide is made in the linings of you veins , vessels and capillaries. Things like Roundup destroyed your ability to produce Nitric Oxide by interfering with the production of key amino acids such as L-arginine. This effects everything from eye site to sex life and of course the Heart. " 713-208-4196

Evidence of GMO harm in pig study

The PIG may be the study subject here, but in reality it is US who are the ones who are affected...No one is studying this cause it would abruptly and adversely affect the cash flow of the MONSTERS like Monsanto and their minions.
GM-fed females had on average a 25% heavier uterus than non-GM-fed females, a possible indicator of disease that requires further investigation. Also, the level of severe inflammation in stomachs was markedly higher in pigs fed on the GM diet. The research results were striking and statistically significant.
Study details 168 newly-weaned pigs in a commercial piggery were fed either a typical diet incorporating GM soy and corn, or else (in the control group) an equivalent non-GM diet. The pigs were reared under identical housing and feeding conditions. They were slaughtered over 5 months later, at the usual slaughter age, after eating the diets for their entire commercial lifespan. They were then autopsied by qualified veterinarians who worked “blind” – they were not informed which pigs were fed on the GM diet and which were from the control group.
The GMO feed mix was a commonly used mix. The GM and non-GM diets contained the same amount of soy and corn, except that the GM diet contained a mixture of three GM genes and their protein products, while the control (non-GM) diet had equivalent non-GM ingredients. Of the three GM proteins in the GM diet, one made a crop resistant to being sprayed with the herbicide Roundup, while two were insecticides.
The only part I do not like about Judy Carman's work is "MORE STUDY NEEDED"... Forget that part. GMO and  Pesticide must be banned. And then we need to figure out how to feed ourselves without Monsanto and minions help. Should not be too hard.

Lies Monsanto and Minions Tell in the Maui News

Maui News is criminal in not publicly apologizing for spreading lies, and for not issuing a detraction, along with an explanation on why they did no fact checking.
Thinking a letter to the editor being published is not good enough. We need a front page headline and story on the deceit of Monsanto, and their minions. A real investigative report. One we can hold to account too.
I was told that two 19 year old boys died spraying pesticides while working for Monsanto. It was so covered up, that one of the boys uncles, who cried while he told me, said he did not know for a month or attend the funeral. It was a secret. Very hard to keep such a secret on Maui....And I bet Monsanto has many more.
This article was published in response to the March Against Monsanto on May 25th 2013 here on Maui.... But first you must read a letter to the editor of the Maui News published this past week...rebutting this article

The May 26 article on genetically modified organisms included a quote from executive director of the Hawaii Crop Improvement Association, in which she said, "The scientific consensus about their safety is overwhelming." She then stated that she represents feed farmers and that she is not paid by Monsanto, Dow or another biotech company.

However, HCIA member companies include Monsanto, Dow and Syngenta. The president of the association is Monsanto's Fred Perlak. So, her statement was highly misleading.

Monsanto has invested heavily in university research departments.

But the main way it stifles food safety research into GMOs is by making it illegal for anyone to study GMO food without permission from the patent holder, Monsanto itself. This prompted Scientific American to state "when scientists are prevented from examining the raw ingredients in our nation's food supply or from testing the plant material that covers a large portion of the country's agricultural land, the restrictions on free inquiry become dangerous."

Ernest Hilberg

I just now came from the doctors... I met a lady who is a mailman and works at the post office. She asked me what GMOs are,....I am still flabbergasted at the fact that most people 
Yeah ...That's me dragging my pill bottles. have no IDEA!!!!
