So much to report on Monsanto’s genetically modified foods and their outcome. Here is the skinny to all the newest:
– Monsanto’s BT-toxin has been found in the blood of pregnant women and their babies
– GMO’s damage the heart, spleen and blood cells
– are even in our natural food products according to the latest findings
– hundreds of thousands of Americans are now suffering from infections, serios gluten allergy reactions, headaches, dizzy spells, kidney stones, bowel irregularities and mutagenic cell production leading to cancer
– Monsanto’s GMO farm land has increased from 4 million in 1997 to over 330 million acres mostly US soil. Brazil and India are now popular GMO breeding grounds also
To get off track here for a second. This video is extremely important and I think Monsanto’s GMO crops are proving Dr Albert A Bartlett right about the growth factor. Here is the second video showing the growth factor chart: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pb3JI8F9LQQ&feature=relmfu
– According to the EPA, since the Roundup Ready crops were introduced in 1993, use of the pesticide has increased at least ten-fold.
– Monsanto’s GMO corn linked to organ failure
– discover of Bt insecticide in human blood proves GMO toxin a threat to human health, study finds
You know what is shocking is Monsanto’s pledge on their website.
Integrity is the foundation for all that we do. Integrity includes honesty, decency, consistency, and courage
The names of the corn even sound like chemicals, it’s like they are naming their plastic barbie line. Now we are making up names of this fake and adultered food. What is next? It is just like Anjimoto and their aspartame and msg.
You know what I say, “Never trust the devil!”
Technological progress is like an axe in the hands of a pathological criminal.
Sign CBAN’s petition!
Reminds me of another chemical giant, ASPARTAME AND MSG
Take the time to watch Dr Albert A Bartlett 8 part series :
10 fact you need to know about GMO:
Codeine is a widely used drug. How many people experience some of these side effects while on codeine yet go on another drug for a side effect they are experiencing? Say for example someone is on codeine for back pain. They eventually start to develop stomach pain and go back to the Dr and are then put on stomach pills, instead of trying an alternative treatment or even suspecting the codeine. Or say a woman experiences mood changes and they are told it is menopause and put of hormones. Personally I think this goes on a lot in society today. Medicating the side effects. It seems very out of control to me.
We really should reporting side effects to the FDA. I know I haven’t personally but with the long list of side effects I been through I should have.
I found some sources for the side effects from codeine, see below. I hope if you are a codeine user, you will take this list seriously and consider that it could be the culprit:
Codeine is absorbed quickly from the GI tract and it’s first pass through the liver results in very little loss of the drug. This contrasts with morphine in which over 90% of the drug is metabolized in the first pass through the liver resulting in a considerable loss of potency when administered orally.
Narcotics induce an “opioid analgesia” by altering the perception of pain at the spinal cord and brain. They also affect emotional responses to pain. Opioids have stimulating effects as well because they block inhibitory neurotransmitters. Repeated use of these drugs can cause long-term changes in the way the nervous system functions.
Codeine has a variety of recognizable side effects, including:
Codeine may cause other side effects. Call your doctor if you have any unusual problems while you are taking this medication.
If you experience a serious side effect, you or your doctor may send a report to the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program online [at http://www.fda.gov/Safety/MedWatch] or by phone [1-800-332-1088].
Side effects that you should report to your doctor or health care professional as soon as possible:
•allergic reactions like skin rash, itching or hives, swelling of the face, lips, or tongue
•cold, clammy skin
•fast or slow heartbeat
•feeling faint or lightheaded, falls
•trouble passing urine or change in the amount of urine
Side effects that usually do not require medical attention (report to your doctor or health care professional if they continue or are bothersome):
This list may not describe all possible side effects. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.

My 2 cents:
I was prescribed these for probably 15 years. I experienced many of the symptoms above yet the doctor never considered them being a side effect from the drugs they were prescribing. They then went on to give me more drugs for the symptoms I was having and send me to specialists for this and that, added more diagnoses and more prescriptions to the mix. Hmmm??? Beside the added expense to our health care. Believe me too, when you involve more doctors you open yourself up to a power struggle of who is right with what diagnoses and then also the ego of the doctor whom is always right. To be honest, it is hard to find doctors who agree with one another.
Did you read that this is not a complete list of possible side effect? The list just goes on and on. This is because the reports just keep coming in from people so you should keep updated and report your side effects! If you experienced heavy vaginal bleeding they would probably send you to a gynecologist and not even consider your muscle relaxant. Muscle weakness or fatigue you might have a touch of the flu. Abdominal pain, nausea or vomitting probably the same thing or send you for an ultra sound to check your gallbladder. My point here is that one drug can cause so many problems, offer so little cure and it’s side effects or adverse reactions can be masked as disease itself.
