New study shows severe stomach inflammation in pigs that were fed GMO soy and corn and how war is primetime and journalism’s role in the mainstream media is taboo
A new study published in the Journal of Organic System shows very disturbing results regarding pigs that were fed with GMOs. The study was performed on 168 pigs for almost 23 weeks where 84 pigs were fed on a mixture of GM soy and corn diet and other 84 pigs were fed on non-GMO diet. The study showed that the pigs fed with GM corn and soy had a 267% increase in stomach inflammation compared to the ones that were fed with non-GMO diet.
The biotech standard for GMO tests on rats is only 90 days and that standard is set by the giant biotech company Monsanto in order to hide the effect of long-term studies of GMOs on rats. (Here is the actual study: http://www.organic-systems.org/journal/81/8106.pdf)
Beside the severe inflammation of the stomach and intestine, the female pigs who were fed with GMO diet had their uteri (uterus) enlarged by 25%. The leader of the study, Dr. Judy Carman, from the Institute of Health and Environmental Research in Kensington Park, Australia stated that “Our findings are noteworthy for several reasons. First, we found these results in real on-farm conditions, not in a laboratory, but with the added benefit of strict scientific controls that are not normally present on farms. Second, we used pigs and pigs with these health problems end up in our food supply… pigs also have a similar digestive system to people, so we need to investigate if people are also getting digestive problems from eating GM crops.”
Dr Carman also mentioned that “We found these adverse effects when we fed the animals a mixture of crops containing three distinct genetically modified genes and the new proteins that these genes produce in food crops like corn and soy. Yet no food regulator in the world currently requires a safety assessment for the possible toxic effects of mixtures of GMO genes in the food supply. Our results provide clear evidence that regulators need to safety assess GM crops containing mixtures of GM genes, regardless of whether those genes occur in the one GM plant or in a mixture of GM plants eaten in the same meal.”
Inflammatory Bowel Disease and autism:
Back in 2011, a report by researchers at Johns Hopkins University showed that a rare medical condition known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is now becoming increasingly common in kids. According to the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America, more than 100,000 children in the United States have IBD.Maria Oliva-Hemker, M.D., chief of the Gastroenterology & Nutrition division at Hopkins Children’s and director of their IBD center, says “Fifty years ago, IBD was almost exclusively diagnosed in adults. These days, treating children with IBD is business as usual in our clinics.”
Also a study performed by Autism Speaks' Autism Treatment Network (ATN) shows that GI symptoms occur in nearly half of children with autism spectrum disorder, and the prevalence increases as children get older. Also, leaky gut, stomach inflammation and inhabitation of certain digestive enzymes are predominant conditions seen in majority of kids with autism.
The walls of intestines are more permeable in people with leaky gut and leaky gut could allow foods that are not fully digested to cross the intestine and enter the blood stream and increase the chances of food intolerance and allergies. The studies also show that autistic kids might have leaky gut syndrome that makes them unable to absorb essential nutrients efficiently.
The new study of Dr. Judy Carman and her colleagues indicate that pigs fed with GMO soy and corn had much higher rate of severe inflammation in their stomach and intestine. Considering that pigs have similar digestive system to people, wouldn’t that blow your mind on why we have an epidemic of digestive disorder and inflammatory bowel disease in this country?
This is when approximately, one in 110 kids in U.S. has autism, ADD, ADHD, complex developmental brain disorders and learning difficulty and most autistic kids experience inflammatory bowel disease, stomach inflammation, leaky gut and intestinal problem. Yet, most kids in US are grown on Monsanto’s corn and soy since four famous infant formulas in US have considerable amount of GMO soy in them.
At the same time, the biotech companies and their thugs who financially benefit from mass poisoning of our children and our families blindly insist that there are no proofs that GMOs are harming the health of our nation and our kids.
The mainstream media who stays silent about chemical poisoning of masses by corporations like Monsanto and DuPont is now condemning the Syrian government for using chemical weapons against its own people.
This is the same media who so blindly and ignorantly stayed silent about 2 million people worldwide who recently protested against GMOs and Monsanto. Yet, the mainstream media is filled with headlines on how “America is ready to arm Syrian rebels after Assad's regime crossed "red line" with use of chemical weapons”. However, one would wonder, why the corporate media doesn’t even want to talk about the chemical poisoning of masses by biotech & chemical companies? If the whole point of news is to keep people informed and talk about facts without ulterior motives or agenda, then why the mainstream media like Fox, CNN or ABC are turning into bunch of regurgitating monkeys with zero credibility left? http://www.seattleorganicrestaurants.com/vegan-whole-food/march-against-Monsanto-politicians-paid-monsanto.php
However, the standup comedian, Bill Maher on his latest show compared the Syrian President with Monsanto mentioning that “Using harmful chemicals to hurt your own people? Who does this guy think he is, Monsanto?"
Bill Maher also pointed out how Obama is insisting that the War on Terror should end and Obama even quoted James Madison that 'no nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.' But now we have to get into another war since Assad regime passed the red line because based on the International law we should not interfered with a country’s personal affair at the first place, yet we’ve ended up arming the rebels and supporting another Al Qaeda in Syria.
The war on investigative journalism…
As the independent journalist and documentary and film maker John Pilger says “once again, war is primetime and journalism’s role is taboo”. For example, for many Americans, the history of Iran and America starts with the 1979 revolution and the hostage crisis. The corporate media love to bash the Iranian regime any chance they get, but they won’t even talk about the “Operation Ajax” and how a democratically elected government was over thrown by CIA coup back in 1953.
The Iranian oil was owned by Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (later known as British Petroleum owned by British monarchy) for 60 plus years. The coup basically changed the history of the Middle East and even the world because Iran wanted independence over its oil and natural resources. If you think that’s an exaggeration, you should the book by Stephen Kinzer called ‘all the shah's men; an American coup and the roots of Middle East terror’. (Here is the story that you will never hear on the corporate media: “Who was Dr. Mossadegh, the man whom Time magazine had called “The Iranian George Washington” – represented for Iranians a symbol of change, a champion of true secular democracy, and regarded by many Iranians as the only true freedom”. http://www.writersviews.com/article-dr-mossadegh.php
