More Problems with Glyphosate: US Rice Growers Sound the Alarm


www.globalresearch.ca

Adding to the natural rice industry’s woes after Bayer CropScience contaminated a third of the US rice supply with transgenic rice in 2006, the widespread application of Bayer’s glufosinate and Monsanto’s glyphosate is reducing crop yields, and burning and deforming rice plants that survive.

So where is the supposed benefit from all of Monsantos Frankenstein Foods?!

There is none! Rather a noose around the neck!

Studies by the University of Arkansas showed
reduced rice yield by up to 80% from glyphosate

80% !!!

Add that to Spontaneous Abortions and Birth Defects.


This is a losing proposition for our rice industry, and one that continues to occur. Our alarm is warranted.”



“Damage occurring at this time does not allow for an alternate crop to be replanted. Consequently, the farmer has two nooses around his neck: (1) he is stuck with a crop that will generate lower revenues, and (2) he has already incurred nearly all expenses that are associated with that crop,” said Wagner

The rice kernals are deformed from the continued use of Glyphosate; it causes rice to deform from a cylinder into a parrot beak shape.

So at a time when the world faces increased food shortages tell me why Monsanto is always
given special treatment with its place at the Frankenstein dinner table in Washington D.C.?

While stationed at Beale AFB in (near Sacramento) California, I would fly over countless rice paddies. To my amazement, the big news at that time was that there was a rice shortage (2008). Wal-mart and Costco were running out of their large
(20 or 40 lb) bags and limiting purchases to 1 bag per family. And then as quickly as it started, it stopped. This thread makes me wonder if Monstersanto was getting rid of the good rice.
As usual, great thread BTS.

I posted this in response to a diabetes/Obesity question but it really belongs here too.
Please stay with me as I show what is really going on. Fat, Diet and Insulin are the real keys to Type II diabetes and Obesity


Type 2 as in "old age diabetes" correct???

I have been a Hypoglycemic (low blood sugar) since I was a teen. The Mayo Clinic says "Hypoglycemia in people without diabetes is much less common." That is because Doctors absolutely refuse to do the testing needed to diagnose it. If as I did, you TELL a Doctor you have it. You will get "Oh, You are much to young" It is treated with diet so they are not interested.

This is the key:

Hypoglycemia after meals
Most hypoglycemia occurs when you haven't eaten (when you're in a fasting state), but that's not always the case. Sometimes, hypoglycemia occurs after meals because the body produces more insulin than is needed. This type of hypoglycemia, called reactive or postprandial hypoglycemia, is typical in people who have had gastric bypass surgery. Mayo Clinic


Again according to Mayo Clinic, excess of insulin after a meal causes:

Your brain needs a steady supply of sugar (glucose), for it neither stores nor manufactures its own energy supply. If glucose levels become too low, as occurs with hypoglycemia, it can have these effects on your brain:

* Confusion, abnormal behavior or both, such as the inability to complete routine tasks
* Visual disturbances, such as double vision and blurred vision
* Seizures, though uncommon
* Loss of consciousness, though uncommon

Hypoglycemia may also cause these other signs and symptoms:

* Heart palpitations
* Tremor
* Anxiety
* Sweating
* Hunger
Mayo Clinic


My wake up call was a breakfast of waffles and syrup followed by a strenuous hike and collapse. Luckily I was with a buddy who had Type I and instantly recognized the collapse as insulin shock.

Typical symptoms are becoming very sleepy after eating a carbohydrate laden meal and an insatiable sweet tooth. Left untreated Hypoglycemia exhausts pancreatic insulin production and leads to "old age diabetes" - both my parents had type II.

Now on to the nitty gritty:
First who OWNS big Pharma (and big AG): READ: You will be surprised and horrified It is a short article that will explain a lot of what follows.


Why don't many doctors know much about Nutrition? Dr. Ray Strand

This article examines why many doctors are ignorant about nutrition. Why so many of them are
unaware of the breakthroughs in nutritional medicine. It discusses the influence of the
pharmaceutical industry over their education. I have assumed that you are aware of the large
amount of medical evidence that high-quality nutritional supplements can provide you with
major health benefits. For instance, that they can greatly reduce your risk of developing
degenerative diseases like cancer and heart disease, amongst others.....

Only 6% or so study nutrition at medical school.


The fundamental reason why doctors do not know much about nutrition is because very few of
them study anything about it at medical school. As discussed further on, this is largely because
the curriculum is heavily influenced by the pharmaceutical drug industry....

Like I said READ that article about who is behind this


So what are those studies???


High fructose processed foods linked to obesity, gout, hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol and fatty liver

...The only organ in your body that can take up fructose is your liver and this is where the problem begins. In contrast, glucose can be taken up by every organ in the body, only 20% of glucose load ends up at your liver - the rest is metabolised by muscles, brain, kidneys, heart etc....

Fructose increases fat production in the liver (also known as denovo lipogenesis) which in turn increases blood fats like cholesterol and triglycerides (glucose does not do this) and liver fat (which could result in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease). In fact fructose is being metabolised via the same pathway as alcohol and is actually damaging your liver in the the same way as alcohol. Fructose causes deposition of fat within the liver...

Fructose increases inflammation which in turn increases insuln levels in the long term:....

Fructose increases uric acid which in turn increases blood pressure and causes gout....



Grain is POISON - THE LECTIN REPORT

...High levels of lectins (specialized proteins) may be found in grains (also known as cereals or pulses), legumes (that is 'beans' including peanuts), dairy and plants in the nightshade family...(includes potato, tomato, eggplant and pepper)

...lectin ... disrupts the membrane and damages the cell and may initiate a cascade of immune and autoimmune events leading to cell death....

This damage leads to a whole range of "symptoms and conditions" Unfortunately these lectins can be passed to humans through "factory farmed" livestock.


The Health Benefits of Grass Fed Beef

Cholesterol
Substantial evidence from recent studies shows that grass fed lean red meat trimmed of visible fat does not raise total blood cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol levels....

Cancer Prevention
Grass-fed beef has higher concentrations of conjugated linoleic acids (CLA), which are fatty acids believed to decrease cancer risk....

Heart Health
Grass-fed beef is higher in Omega-3 fatty acids, which have been found to reduce risk of heart disease....

Weight Loss

The conjugated linoleic acids (CLA) in grass-fed beef may help people maintain a healthy weight.



A couple of years ago, I cut out all sugar and grain products. I changed my diet to organic veggies and grassfed beef. I lost 25 lbs, my high blood pressure and acid reflux vanished and I felt 20 years younger... No more sleep attacks.

Last year, due to travel and economic considerations,, I no longer bought at that farmers market. I substituted store bought veggies, pork and chicken. I gained back all 25 pounds.
In desperation I cleaned out my freezer, drove to the farm and bought the grassfed beef direct. It has been a little over a week and I have ALREADY lost 7 pounds and no longer feel depressed and lethargic.


Metabolism Conference

Following the obesity conference, I attended the annual symposium of the Metabolism Society (used to be the Nutrition and Metabolism Society... Carbohydrate reduction is one of the main themes that keeps coming up in the research, but certainly other dietary factors are important (protein, fats, etc.)...

... talk by Gary Taubes, ....

Again, a highlight was a talk by Gary Taubes, this time on the history of low-carb diets. (I am definitely going to write an article about this.) The main point is that basically since we have had records of people dieting, the primary method has been limiting carbohydrate. Gary cited numerous examples in the historical record. In fact, the ONLY time this hasn't been the case is the last 35 years - and almost the second the recommendations changed, people started gaining weight.



....a very tightly-controlled series of studies done by Diane Stadler, focusing on the affects of diet on appetite hormones such as leptin, ghrelin, etc. The researchers meticulously figured out exactly how many calories the participants needed to eat to maintain their weight, provided food, and carefully measured what was not eaten. Some interesting observations: People on the low-carb diet spontaneously reduced their calorie intake by 30-40%...

[The are several more great studies outlined - Crimv]


....To assess the impact of diet on type 2 diabetes risk, researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health examined the dietary habits of 85,059 women participating in the Nurse’s Health Study. The women were then assigned a score based on their diet, with higher scores going to the women who consumed a diet rich in animal fats and protein and low in carbohydrates and lower scores assigned to women following a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet.

After analyzing the data – which spanned roughly 20 years – the researchers determined that women with the highest scores did not have an increased risk of diabetes....

Commenting on the findings, the study’s lead author notes that he was “surprised that total carbohydrate consumption was associated with type 2 diabetes, and that the relative risk for the glycemic load was so high.” Presumably these findings are surprising to the doctor precisely because they run counter to the general recommendations of nutritionists, who advise people at risk of developing type 2 diabetes to follow a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet. In our estimation the only surprising thing here is that the findings are at all surprising..... www.marksdailyapple.com...

The effects of eating a low carb diet to treat obesity have been known for 150 years. The "high grain diet" is actually quite new. link

The explanation for Growing World Obesity is simple - GRAIN (US GMO of course) is replacing locally grown foods.



...NAFTA, which entered into force in 1994...

....According to a study by Jose Romero and Alicia Puyana carried out for the federal government of Mexico, between 1992 and 2002, the number of agricultural households fell an astounding 75% - from 2.3 million to 575, 000[19]. www.countercurrents.org...



...Today three companies, Archer Daniels Midland, Cargill, and Bunge control the world’s grain trade. Chemical giant Monsanto controls three-fifths of seed production. Unsurprisingly, in the last quarter of 2007, even as the world food crisis was breaking, Archer Daniels Midland’s profits jumped 20%, Monsanto 45%, and Cargill 60%. Recent speculation with food commodities has created another dangerous “boom.” After buying up grains and grain futures, traders are hoarding, withholding stocks and further inflating prices.... www.globalissues.org...


TPTB controls the USDA and FDA through Revolving door between the US Government and Industry The USDA, FDA and their tame propaganda outlet aka the mass media control what we eat and what we know about what we eat. The low fat, high carb diet of the last decades as been very very lucrative for Big Ag and Big Pharma.

The general population has paid for it with diabetes, obesity, heart disease and many others diet related diseases.


In closing, if your Doctor knows nothing about low carb diets or thinks they are a "fad" it means he is one of the 96% who has not bothered to study nutrition. Go find one who has!

before I responded. Then, out you have put all of the puzzle pieces together then...
You have outlined the multi faceted direct attack that GMO foods have on us, it
appears to be a coordinated assualt on our entire biological structure!


And to think that when these Mad Scientists go for approval before the FDA they only have
to prove somehow, with all of their twisted research that GMO is safe for 90 days fed to animals.

And once they have "proved" that then the fallacy is its safe for humans to eat for a lifetime.

This is outrageous! Its killing us and the crops/food/plants at the same time!

Look at the Predicted Wildlands Map look at the Rewilding North America | The Rewilding Institute

And look at Ted Turner with all his money who wants to restore "Paleo-America" That is an America with lions and tigers and elephants but no humans.

Ted Turner calls for global one-child policy like China'

CONSERVATION MAGAZINE:

The recent Nature paper proposing to bring cheetahs, lions, and elephants to North America raised a wild rumpus. But are the critics missing the point?

...Under the audacious heading “Re-wilding North America,” the paper’s authors—among them some heavyweights in the field of conservation biology—called for restoring “large wild vertebrates into North America,” meaning those that disappeared at the end of the last ice age. In the two pithy pages that followed, those large wild vertebrates were spelled out in the more-familiar terms of camels, horses, tortoises, and—as if to make sure no one was nodding off in an armchair—cheetahs, lions, and elephants. Yes, in the United States....

...too few of the naysayers, to the authors’ disappointment, offered much beyond wet-blanket dismissals. None seemed willing to venture near the soul of their proposal. In their paper they had politely pointed out that the 1492 arrival of Columbus—long considered North America’s standard of ecological excellence—was in fact the “discovery” of a continent already plundered of its greatest beasts. Why not raise the standard, to that more glorious and decisive moment some 13,000 years ago, when people first set foot in North America?



...The idea of restoring America’s fauna to something more closely resembling prehuman times—when sabertooths prowled and mammoths thundered through places that would later be called Los Angeles and Newark—has a far deeper history than its latest splash in Nature. Paul S. Martin, a coauthor of the rewilding paper and an outspoken paleoecologist from the University of Arizona, has been unabashedly promoting such Pleistocene visions in print and in public lectures for 40 years....

In September 2004, they gathered for a long weekend at Ted Turner’s Ladder Ranch in the Chihuahuan Desert of New Mexico. Over easels and PowerPoint and after-hours beers, they dissected the rewilding idea and broke it down to its factual nuts and bolts, its practical challenges and criticisms, its societal costs and benefits.

The Ladder group agreed on several sobering premises: That human influence had utterly pervaded the planet. That what qualifies for wildness today is a paltry façade of the awesome Pleistocene bestiary we stumbled upon only 13,000 years ago. That the difference between then and now is at least partly, if not principally, our own doing and therefore our duty to repair..... www.conservationmagazine.org...


Do not pass this off as it could not happen. Because it is happening under our noses!

A couple of guys caught a release team turning lose a breeding pair of black panthers (melanistic Jaguars) in NC. Using melanistic Jaguars is a stroke of brilliance because the "black color" is dominant and therefore it is so much easier to deny they exist. Black Mountain lions (cougars) are NOT known to exist.

On top of that was the bill that almost passed Congress that would have made that Wildlands Map a law. Less ambitious laws continue to appear list

And the "rewilding team" is crowing as roads are ripped up and access to OUR FEDERAL LANDS is denied to us.


...He told us that the area in which we were having some serious fun was to be closed to sleds.... It turns out that this area was targeted for potential reintroduction of fur-bearing critters like weasels, martens and fishers.

....I asked, "Why?" Well, the explanation came in the form of "rewilding" of America. Federal agencies, driven by green extremist groups, are exploring options for the reintroduction of wildlife species in potential habitat lands throughout federal lands.... www.sharetrails.org...

That was intentional!

Dan Amstutz wrote the 1995 WTO agreement on Ag. Amstutz wrote the 1996 "Freedom to Fail" Farm bill and then Amstutz went to work for Goldman Sachs (see middle of page) and then we find Monsanto and Cargill, companies making record profits off the food riots!

Well that all fits nicely with the recent legislation that is sitting there like a ticking time bomb,
and in less than 90 days could become law.

On April 27, 2011 the EPA released It's Clean Water Act Jurisdiction!
This dramatically expands the authority of the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers (Corps)
under the Clean Water Act.

That now covers any stream, ditch and pond and puddle, along with every lake, river, and reservoir!
And even on to dry land as it corresponds to the water!


The Environmental Protection Agency on April 27 released proposed new guidelines for determining whether a waterway, water body or wetland is protected under the Clean Water Act. Water bodies would be covered "if they have a physical, chemical or biological connection" to a larger body of water, the EPA said.
The guidance will apply to all Clean Water Act programs, EPA said www.naylornetwork.com...


No suprise that U.S.D.A. Secretary Tom Vilsack would attempt to
sneak this document through its review process given the devastating impact
it will have on America’s farmers and ranchers, and citizens
!

So it seems there are many reasons beyond the obvious, and they will stop at nothing!

This is the same Tom Vilsack that just greenlighted MONSANTOS GMO Alfalfa 7!

This is essentially an end run around the Supreme Court Decisions that limited EPA authority!
and the EPA had decided to ignore 170 Members Of Congress!

It is very large and interconnected. You can add the drugging of the population esp the children to the equation 150,000,000 Americans Classified as Mentally ILL for Profit see post at www.abovetopsecret.com... for the specifics about children.

The targeted population is the bight and gifted children who are bored to tears with the "no child left behind" dumb down the schooling policy.
