A little excerpt from the story.....


This week, a scientific research facility in Wyoming made a startling discovery that is certain to change the way millions of Americans look at the environmentalism movement, after they found conclusive evidence that solar panels not only convert the sun’s energy into usable energy, but that they are also draining the sun of its own energy, possibly with catastrophic consequences far worse -

Oh my god, if you believed that rot, you would have to still believe that the earth was flat! who did the study, the coal conglomerates?

And we still hear the cries that Herbicides are safe....

One Kent street. Nine babies born with a horrific, rare deformity. And a troubling question... were their mothers poisoned by weedkiller?

Eleven-year-old Courtney Barnes shows me the patchwork of scars that criss-cross her midriff, pushing her tummy button several inches out of place. Her mother, Juliet, smiles proudly. ‘Brave, isn’t she?’ she says, kissing her daughter on the forehead.
Next to her, another mum shows me a picture of her one-day-old son, Leon, lying on his back. His insides protrude from his stomach and are bagged up in a plastic balloon suspended from the roof of his incubator.
Finally, a third mother passes me a photograph of her daughter, Mikka, just after she was born. The girl’s face is beautiful, but the rest of her body, down to her feet almost, is obscured by her intestines. They have grown on the outside of her body.

As shocking as these images may be, they are only the beginning. Six more local families have children who have been cursed with the same congenital deformity. One baby was born just two weeks ago, while another is still in the womb.
You might assume I am at the site of some nuclear disaster — Chernobyl, perhaps — or visiting the aftermath of an environmental catastrophe. But you would be wrong. All nine of these families have lived on, or next to, a single quiet street in leafy Kent.
The children have a condition called gastroschisis, which causes developmental abnormalities of the abdomen while the child is still growing in its mother’s womb.


Children afflicted are born with some or all of their intestines, bowels and, in the case of girls, ovaries, protruding. The results can be corrected, but this can require multiple painful operations, after which sufferers will be on medication for life.
Gastroschisis should affect just one child in 7,000 but here on Waterdales, an unassuming road in Northfleet, any woman who falls pregnant fears her baby may be next. ‘There’s something wrong around here, we just know it,’ says Natalie Margetson, 22, who used to live at number 164.
‘My three-year-old, Leon, was born with the condition and my younger sister, Courtney, was born with it too, 11 years ago. But gastroschisis isn’t hereditary. When I was having my scan and they told me Leon had it, I couldn’t believe it. I called my mum and was crying so hard she thought I’d had a miscarriage.
‘It just seems to go on and on. Last year my best friend Chantelle phoned me to say her scan showed that her baby also had it — that’s me, my mother and my best friend all having children with a condition that’s supposed to affect one child in 7,000.
‘Chantelle was in tears. What can you say to your best friend when you know how tough it’s going to be for her child? I just cried with her.’

Full story.

im not here here to troll if your interested in the verdict clik on the link


Further followup....

'No Such Thing As GMO Contamination' Rules Australian Court in Landmark Decision, Rebuffing Organic Activists

http://www.forbes.com/sites/jonentine/20...anic-activists/

Now, if this were to be true and the actual case, then i reckon that Monsanto has to hand back all the money that it sued farmers for for "stealing" their genetic material by way of pollen drift onto a neighbouring property/crop.

Hmmm, maybe Australia has set a precedent, where all the farmers previously now wrongly sued as it would seem can now counter sue Monsanto...

There are quite a number of good reads out there that give the full low down on Chemicals, pharmaceuticals, drug companies,the cancer industry and big biotech companies, but i guess the light bulb has to want to change for people to read them?
Otherwise they just end up stuck in their chemical lifestyle.

There might well be a number of good reads out there that give a low down of what you described, but I asked openly (and legitimately) about just one book. Have you heard of it?

No, i haven't heard of that particular book, but i am sure if it is available in a library or comes to our local library, my wife will borrow it.
She loves reading and is a fountain of knowledge.

Yeah, i have actually been there.
I hear that they are going to peel the individual banana's and wrap them in plastic as it is more convenient and kids find it too hard to open them now days! wink evillaugh

After All you have to have the perfect size shape and colour banana don't you? the rest that don't conform to the standards just get disposed of back in the paddock, and how many times have you heard theres a food shortage trotted around?

The bananas are already in the USA being tested on humans to see if they work in producing the extra vitamin A. If they pass the testing phase they will be selected, propagated and shipped to Africa in 2020.

Sorry SBT but totally disagree. ... Do we really believe Africa needs GMO crops that will make it even more dependent on the west and in a position where it can be screwed even more than it has been already. Absolute western scam to make the rich richer and the poor even more subservient. One snippet from an article on GMO bananas in Africa (not this one it should be noted):
"Most genetically modified seeds are patented, requiring farmers to re-purchase them after each planting. This might work for commercial farmers, said Olupot, but Uganda’s subsistence farmers relied on their own seeds. Marketing genetically modified organisms to them could mean trapping them in a system they could not afford, he said." Nuff said.

Like what happened in India Bello Boy, and the like of this.

Monsanto is suing the state of Vermont to block labeling of GMO foods



Just hours ago, the world's most hated corporation got even more evil.

Monsanto and its allies have just announced they're suing the tiny, rural U.S. state of Vermont to stop a new law that simply requires genetically engineered foods to be labeled. In fact, the mere threat of a multi-million dollar lawsuit nearly caused the state to back off the labeling law altogether.

But Vermont is refusing to back down -- and they’re asking for our help. They're getting ready to fight back against Monsanto, and have even created a legal defense fund so people around the world can make donations to help them beat back Monsanto’s lawsuit.

Another good read is "The China study" which wholeheartedly proves the links between multiple types of cancers and numerous disease to animal proteins.
The study has full scientific backing and took place over a very long time frame.

The point of my previous post ("The Chemical Maze") was to demonstrate that there are caveats.

Wow who would have thought a seed company would sell seeds to generate a profit and to reimburse or at least help defray research and development costs as well as make money to pay employees and finally pay a dividend to shareholders? Nasty filthy capitalist mongrels. How dare they not provide seeds for free? /Sarcasm.

Probably the same company who only used to sell poison, now the same seed company is trying to take over the entire seed market and eliminate all the traditional seed varieties that have been around for generations.
The same company that if you do buy their GM seeds, you can't save seed as you have done in years past, as all subsistence farmers have done.

There is a difference between a company making a "profit" and the one that is in it for pure utter selfish greed. smirk

And this is where some of your greedy profits go to....(By the way i don't follow Dr.Oz)

Senator who attacked Doctor Oz over dietary supplements received over $146,000 in campaign contributions from Big Pharma mega-retailer and Monsanto

Sen. McCaskill also accepted over $37,000 from Monsanto, widely regarded to be the most evil corporation in the world and an enemy of sustainable food production, heirloom seeds and traditional American farming methods.
