GMO Disease Epidemics: (10) Bt-cotton Fiber Disease

Genetic Engineering is a nightmare technology that has already caused MANY disease epidemics -- documented but unpublicized. This is the 10th in a series revealing the epidemics, dealing here with an almost science-fiction affliction -- Bt-cotton Fiber Disease.

GMO DISEASE EPIDEMICS:

(10) GM (Bt)-cotton Fiber Disease



I. The Face of Frankenstein's Monster

Genetic Engineering Biotechnology (GE, GM, GMOs) evades Evolution's safeguards by injecting genes of one species into a totally unrelated species, something impossible in Nature.

GM evades Evolution's safeguards, and may therefore give rise to PATHOGENS that can -- and HAVE, many times -- caused crippling and deadly DISEASE EPIDEMICS -- documented but unpublicised.

Genetic Engineering is also ideal for developing horrific biological and other military weapons --- sufficient cause to OUTLAW GM.

The Greatest Racket in History (Listen to this !): ---

GM contamination is virulent, spread by wind, bird, insect, animals and travelling human beings. Co-Existence with GM is completely impossible, only fools or liars would say differently.

GM has contaminated crops in areas of North America which dwarf the UK and even Western Europe. Planetary contamination is inevitable, if We don't stop it.

The Biotechnology corporations know oh-so-well how contamination spreads and spreads and spreads.

Now get this: Through their political influence, these Corporations have been able to acquire the obscene, sacrilegious, and indeed revolutionary PATENTS on LIFE-FORMS.

Before these revolutionary Patents on Life, a farmer could have sued -- successfully without any doubt -- the Biotechnology corporation for having contaminated, poisoned his crops.

However, given these Patents on Life (here, on the seeds), the Corporation can -- and DOES, successfully -- sue the victimised farmer for (Hold your nose) "infringement of patent".

[Our tainted, corrupted political systems allow this monstrosity.]

Thus the formula the reader might keep in mind:
GM Contamination + Patents on Life-Forms equals Corporate Ownership Rights in the crops of victimised farmers.

This formula spells the serfdom and ruin of all small family farmers on this planet. (They are the majority of the population in Asia, Africa, and Latin America).

The Chemical-Drug-Biotechnology syndicate and its Enforcers (corrupted governments in the West and Third World, corporation-dominated organisations like the WTO, World Bank, IMF) have started a WORLDWIDE AGRICULTURAL REVOLUTION.

They want to destroy small family farming, and have only gigantic Corporate GM Plantations with farmers working as serfs.

[This process is underway, especially in South America where the U.S. Military has begun to intervene on behalf of GM Plantations to crush farmer opposition.]

Already, according to the Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Ecology (RFSTE) in New Delhi, 40,000 farmers in India have committed suicide primarily as a result of the Corporate Enforcers' so-called "free trade" policies --- dumping heavily-subsidised Western farm produce onto glutted Indian markets, pushing GM crops, insisting that Patents on Life-Forms be accepted so farmers must sign contracts with GM Corporations and can no longer save seeds, etc.

The Greatest Racket in History --- GM Contamination + Patents on Life-Forms equals Corporate Proprietary Rights in the crops of victimised farmers, and spells the serdom and ruin of small family farmers everywhere on this planet.

We MUST OUTLAW GM and PATENTS on LIFE-FORMS -- or else !!
(e.g. No more organic, healthy food --- you and your children will only be able to eat unsafe GM)

See the Action Plan in Part III designed to OUTLAW GM and PATENTS on LIFE-FORMS.
But beforehand, read the next in our series of "GMO Disease Epidemics".

II.
Genetically-Engineered (Bt) cotton Fiber Disease



Genetically-engineered Bt cotton killed 30% of the bees in the fields when field-tested in Thailand.

Mass Deaths by Sheep Grazing on Bt [GM] Cotton"

(Institute of Science in Society, London)

At least 1,800 sheep were reported dead from severe toxicity after grazing on Bt cotton fields in just four villages in Andhra Pradesh, India.

( Bt, bacillus thuringiensis, is a poison genetically engineered into cotton and maize plants to kill an insect which feeds on the pollen. This poison, which seems to acquire much added 'oomph' from the genetic engineering process, permeates the crop which human beings and animals feed upon.)

If you were an Indian shepherd caring for your animals, look at the face of Frankenstein as it appeared in Andhra Pradesh: --- The major symptoms of the disaster as reported by shepherds were:

1. Sheep became dull/depressed 2 to 3 days after grazing
2. Cough with nasal discharge
3. Reddish and erosive lesions in the mouth
4. Blood
5. Blackish diarrhoea
6. Sometimes red urine
7. Death within 5 to 7 days of grazing on the GM cotton fields

GM (Bt-toxin) cotton and maize: death of worms & soil degradation / lacewing & ladybirddeaths /textiles

Mark that the GM cotton plant leaches its Bt-toxin into the soil.This causes worms to die (according to a a study published in Nature), and almost assuredly results in soil degradation.

Another study shows that the mortality among lacewings, beneficial insects that feed upon caterpillars and aphids, increased afterfeeding onGM (bt-toxin) maize.
The processed cotton fiber also contains this poison. When youwear GM-cotton underwear, shirts or pants or sox or whatever, will itleach over time into the orifices and pores ofyour body? What sense is there in wearing such things?

The truly fearful danger is of the genetic engineering process giving rise to pathogens, and -- even worse -- combining with the Bt toxin to produce who-knows-what.

the mysterious Fiber Disease epidemic

Here is another new, mystery disease erupting in the Genetic Engineering era.

Although primarily incident in the United States (where genetically-engineered cotton is almost unavoidable), it too is becoming internation
al , like GM products (in this case, Bt cotton).

There are reports of incidence from 15 other nations including Canada, the UK and The Netherlands.

Where on this entire planet has Fiber Disease been most prevalent? First, California. Second, Texas. Third, Florida. Three big cotton-growing regions.

Certain cotton products are carrying something that gives rise to virtual science fiction symptoms among users of these products.

The afflicted havestrange
fiber-like material (or tiny pieces of thread) sticking out of sores or wounds that erupt.

Painful with intense itching, it has been described as "an ever present sensation as if something is crawling under the skin".

Signicantly (as per our "GMO Disease Epidemics: Chronic Fatigue"), disabling FATIGUEis a common symptom of Fiber Disease, reported by 95% of patients.

Commonly reported also is the full Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia (which features both chronic fatigue and chronic myalgia).

Cognitive (memory and thought-processing) difficulties, and, naturally, certain behavioural problems are also associated with Fiber Disease.(Genetic engineering seems to have a penchant for attacking the central nervous system.)

Fiber Disease certainly appears to be another genetically-engineered disease, this one evidently brought to us by GM (Bt) cotton textiles and other Bt cotton products.

Note: Pets, especially dogs but also cats (and even horses) are beginning to suffer from this bizarre Fiber Disease. What seems to link all of them? I would say it was exposure to genetically-engineered Bt cotton.

III. Conclusion and What To Do

Human beings and Nature, as we have known them, cannot survive in a GMO-Frankenstein world.

The nightmare technology of Genetic Engineering Biotechnology, and its incestuous Patents on Life-Forms, must be OUTLAWED.


How To Do It?

There is only one way to overcome this extremely powerful, ruthless Corporation-Government-corporate Mass Media axis.

It is to conduct grassroots Public Education Campaigns to educate and politically activate the General Public, university / college students in particular.

The General Public !! Stop forever talking to the Converted. To get around the corporate media's suppression and distortion of truth, one must talk to people and go door-to-door with leaflets and vocal messages.
And major efforts must be made to inform and activate university students.

Important Hints:

(1) Concentrate on university students.

And senior citizens.

I speak to you now, elder citizens like myself. Put moral purpose into your lives and help rescue this planet and your grandchildren.

(2) AVOID NGOs and all established organisations, especially large ones. They are not what they seem.

Their hierarchies and decision-making are corporation-influenced if not outright purchased.

Never ever join them. Never ever give them Money.

[see George Monbiot's very important article in The Guardian, 4 September 2001, "Sleeping with the Enemy: Consumer and Environmental Groups are Getting into Bed with Big Corporations]

[Note: In developing countries there are some exceptions, but very very very few in the West. If by a miracle one of them ever conducts a genuine and sensible public education campaign, then you can help out. But NEVER join or give money to them.]

The environmental field especially is riddled with
wealthy, prestigious, deceptive organisations adept at dilutng and derailing environmental causes, GM in particular.

[I am thinking at this moment of one such organisation I have observed over a long period of time, in my view a very slick and dangerous FOE of environmentalism, originally created by polluting Corporations to deal with the growing environmental movement.
Don't go anywhere near this one.]

When they talk about being 'practical' and seeking 'Coexistence' with GM, let a red flag go up.

Nothing short of OUTLAWING GENETIC ENGINEERING and PATENTS ON LIFE-FORMS will save us and our planet.

Do your educational work as individuals or in small groups of people you know.

In a little of your SPARETIME (perhaps 3 or 4 hours a week, but regularly, as part of an ethical life-style):

Educate and activate the Public by writing and telephoning and just talking to your family members, friends and acquantances;

Write letters and make telephone calls to local, regional and national media
;

Write, call and especially visit your legislative representatives and other government personnel, and

Take appropriate Direct Action.



Good Luck to You.

MORGELLONS 26.Sep.2006 18:10

MONICA VALITON MVALITON@COMCAST.NET

gmo's are the cause of morgellons
the fda approved the use of *agrobacterium ti* in 68% of all usa crop and it is now in the food you eat
agrobacterium is made up of 3 genes and connecting promoters
they go in sequence:
camv 35s-a promoter isolated from (cauliflower mosaic virus)--used for it's resistant properties-it has continual function regardless of enviromental affects

kan gene-used for it's resistance to antibiotics driven by the camv 35s promoter
pal-840-a promoter comes from the plant cassava-a resistant which is attached to *gus
gus--a gene used as a visual marker which produces a strong blue color(actually can varie in color)
after this vector is made it is sent into bacterium e coli (for multiplication in a culture that contains the antibiotic kanomycin---this insures strongest cells
the transfer continues in the plasmid agrobacterium and then transferred into plants
we are all taking part of this new genetic by consumption
a german dr. and his colleages back in 2001 performed a test using this *agrobacterium and human dna in a petri dish observed that it mutated with human dna
it is illegal in germany as well as all of europe to use any gmo's in their food chain---very smart
we shall see future contradictions on the subject--but this is definetley a step in the right direction
i know several people who have morgellons the one thing in common is that ironicallly they have been eating a better diet that includes oats rice soy and grains as well as fruits and vegetables---all in the last 5 years---coincidence --i think not
best regards

GMO causing the Fiber Disease AKA Morgellons 12.Feb.2007 17:56

southcity@crossinglines.net southcity@crossinglines.net

You are correct in the assumption that a GMO is the cause of morgellons, and in the statement that it is affecting other species as well. The organism is a modified cyanobacterium, all research done to date point at R. Seeberi as the base organism with higher primate, a marine specie and insect gene input. In other words, this is a huge problem.

Cyano and algae, in more general terms; plankton, represents the biggest body, the biggest weight, the biggest decision maker related to life, because it represents the source code of all life that is present.

This type of information incorporated into this GMO, has begun to exponentially proliferate into the environment and create momentum in a body it feels most comfortable with, including water and soil; this includes freshwater supplies, lakes, rivers and the vast ocean.

You are also correct in thinking that "this is very bad". It is nothing short of a disaster.

They can't stop it, they can't keep science at pace with the speed nature integrates this type element in every life form that is around.

For more information concerning the research that has been done visit  http://silentsuperbug-reference.blogspot.com/ www.crossinglines.net

And then demand an investigation as to why our federal health monitors continue to ignore their responsibility to inform the general public as to the existence of this organism.

Fibers and disease...are they incorrect terms? 05.Nov.2007 13:38

I have had Morgellons for about 8 months.
I have put some Morgellons videos on youtube, they can be found and viewed under mainemorgellons.One of the video links is below:
 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxXC9nfuNEk
I also have a website: mainemorgellons.com

After much reseach, I think Morgellons is not a disease but rather a reaction to BT and GM cotton.
People with compromised immune systems do not ha ve the ability to fight off the pesticide proteins in BT and Gm cotton.
(I have fibromyalgia and carry Parvo B-19).
Doctors just "freak out" when this is mentioned as a disease.
Mine did!
I also think the fibers should be named filaments.
They don't have the "twist" as textile fibers do.
The Morgellons filaments are transparent and shiny.
When I have taken a toothpick or tweezers over my long filaments, they tear and break up very easily.
Textile fibers do not do this.

All in all, because we have may have incorrectly named these,we have perhaps caused the problem with the lack of interest with doctors and reseach...
"Disease"??.. "Fibers"??... It all sounds like a science fiction movie!
"Reaction"..."Filaments"...
No, maybe we are not delusional as doctors are calling us...
