    Forest Wild Fire in Canada on Friday, 05 July, 2013
    at 03:09 (03:09 AM) UTC.
     
    More than a dozen forest fires are raging in northern Quebec, including one just four kilometres northeast of the Cree community of Eastmain. Quebec’s forest fire protection agency, la Societe de protection des forets contre le feu (SOPFEU), said the fire had spread over 257,000 hectares when last surveyed, although today it is likely closer to 300,000 hectares. “The winds at the moment are in the community’s favour,” said Melanie Morin, a spokeswoman for SOPFEU. “The winds are blowing away from the community and heading eastward.” The Cree Board of Health and Social Services issued a news alert Thursday afternoon, saying preventive controlled-burning is protecting the village of Eastmain, and the hydro line is operational. Goldcorp shut down its eleonore mining project in the region, as prevailing winds pushed the fire – still about 100 kilometres away – in the direction of the mine site. The head of civil protection for Abitibi-Temiscamingue and Northern Quebec, Jacques Viger, said about 800 employees were ordered to leave the mine site. He said non-essential Hydro-Quebec crews have also been pulled off their work sites, and a rest stop at Kilometre 321 of the James Bay road between Radisson and Matagami has also been closed. “There are a lot of people evacuated either to Radisson or to Val d’Or,” said Viger.
    Late last week, some 275 elderly and infirm people, as well as those with respiratory problems, were evacuated from Eastmain and are already in Val d’Or. Viger said between 400 and 500 people remain in the Cree community, with no passable road out due to smoke from the fire. “If the wind changes direction we may have to evacuate Cree villages in the territory,[F1]” Viger said. “We are starting to put in place a Plan B, to transport people by plane, as we can still get into all the communities by plane.” For a second straight day, damage to major transmission lines from the fires caused widespread blackouts elsewhere in Quebec. Half a million Hydro-Quebec customers were without power at the peak of Thursday’s outages, which began at around 5 p.m. Hydro-Quebec said most had their power restored by 7 p.m., and the utility had the three transmission lines affected up and running again by 7:30 p.m. On Wednesday, damage to the hydro line caused a major power failure that affected metro service in Montreal and cut off power at LaRonde, the amusement park on Ile Ste-Helene.
    “A major line, a major transmission line far up north basically went off line,” Hydro-Quebec’s chief executive officer, Thierry Vandal, explained early Thursday. “That has a cascading affect on a number of lines.” La Societe de developpement de la Baie-James, the agency in charge of roads in that part of the province, yesterday closed a large portion of the James Bay highway because of the fire, as well as side roads. A second major fire is burning 40 kilometres east of Nemiscau, another Cree community southeast of Eastmain.[F2] Morin said that fire, covering some 25,000 hectares when last surveyed, is so far not affecting the community because the prevailing winds are away from the village. SOPFEU has posted an extreme danger alert for several regions of the province – essentially everything north of the 49th parallel. “Contrary to the southern portion of the province, where we have lots of humidity and rain on and off throughout most of the summer, the nordic portion of the province has had very little rain and is very dry,[F3]” Morin said. “The fire index is at ‘extreme,’ which means the tiniest spark could set off a major forest fire.” There is a ban on all open-air fires in the affected regions.

    Biological activities and potential health benefit effects of polysaccharides isolated from Lycium barbarum L.
    Int J Biol Macromol. 2013 Mar;54:16-23
    Authors: Jin M, Huang Q, Zhao K, Shang P
    Abstract
    Recently, isolation and investigation of novel ingredients with biological activities and health benefit effects from natural resources have attracted a great deal of attention. The fruit of Lycium barbarum L[F4]., a well-known Chinese herbal medicine as well as valuable nourishing tonic, has been used historically as antipyretic, anti-inflammation and anti-senile agent for thousands of years. Modern pharmacological experiments have proved that polysaccharide is one of the major ingredients responsible for those biological activities in L. barbarum. It has been demonstrated that L. barbarum polysaccharides had various important biological activities, such as antioxidant, immunomodulation, antitumor, neuroprotection, radioprotection, anti-diabetes, hepatoprotection, anti-osteoporosis and antifatigue. The purpose of the present review is to summarize previous and current references regarding biological activities as well as potential health benefits of L. barbarum polysaccharides.—PMID: 23200976 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE]
    Recipe—take 1 ½ cup of wine add to it 1 cup of Goji berry and then add equal portions of distilled water and put into pressure cooker and allow to pressure cook for 1.5 hours—shut off cooker and allow the pressure to reduce so you can open the lid—strain through a sheet or handkerchief—pour into bottle and leave about 2 inches from the top —add 2 oz of vodka to it to preserve—shake it well date and store—use ½ oz 2-3 times a day or more as needed
    Take the left over goji berry and add to a blender add honey til you cover the berry—then place lid on and blend for about 5-7 minutes til there is a fusion—when done shut of blender and pour into glass now you have the properties of the wine and berry in the honey and can be used regularly as well

    New US-UK Study Shocks World! “Conspiracy Theorists” Are ‘Sane’; Government Dupes Crazy & Hostile!
    A newly released study by psychologists and social scientists in both the United States and the UK is bound to ‘shock the world’, for it has found that those who believe in ‘conspiracy theories’ are considered ‘more sane’ than those who believe in the ‘official versions’ of the ‘contested events’. For those who are awake, this is simply not shocking in the least bit, in fact, it is quite common knowledge. For Americans who still believe the ‘accepted versions’ of stated events, it’s quite possible that they will continue to stay ‘insane’, and hostile! In fact, those now believing the ‘conspiracy theory’ version of events now outnumber those believing the ‘statist propaganda’ TWO TO ONE! Americans are quickly awakening to hidden truths; is it too late? This fact sure would explain why TPTB are so eager to crackdown on Americans. If I were to recommend ONE ‘conspiracy theory’ video for those who haven’t ‘awoken’ to watch, I’d recommend the banned ‘Conspiracy Theory’ with Jesse Ventura story about the Police State and FEMA Camps in America. We’re running out of time and only MASS AWAKENING may save this country and our very lives and the lives of our children and loved ones. Much more below.
     
    Recent studies by psychologists and social scientists in the US and UK suggest that contrary to mainstream media stereotypes, those labeled “conspiracy theorists” appear to be saner than those who accept the official versions of contested events.—The most recent study was published on July 8th by psychologists Michael J. Wood and Karen M. Douglas of the University of Kent (UK). Entitled “What about Building 7? A social psychological study of online discussion of 9/11 conspiracy theories,” the study compared “conspiracist” (pro-conspiracy theory) and “conventionalist” (anti-conspiracy) comments at news websites.
    The authors were surprised to discover that it is now more conventional to leave so-called conspiracist comments than conventionalist ones: “Of the 2174 comments collected, 1459 were coded as conspiracist and 715 as conventionalist.” In other words, among people who comment on news articles, those who disbelieve government accounts of such events as 9/11 and the JFK assassination outnumber believers by more than two to one. That means it is the pro-conspiracy commenters who are expressing what is now the conventional wisdom, while the anti-conspiracy commenters are becoming a small, beleaguered minority.
    So, why are folks like belligerent or so incredibly hostile? More from the study below…
    Perhaps because their supposedly mainstream views no longer represent the majority, the anti-conspiracy commenters often displayed anger and hostility: “The research… showed that people who favoured the official account of 9/11 were generally more hostile when trying to persuade their rivals.” —-Additionally, it turned out that the anti-conspiracy people were not only hostile, but fanatically attached to their own conspiracy theories as well. According to them, their own theory of 9/11 – a conspiracy theory holding that 19 Arabs, none of whom could fly planes with any proficiency, pulled off the crime of the century under the direction of a guy on dialysis in a cave in Afghanistan – was indisputably true. The so-called conspiracists, on the other hand, did not pretend to have a theory that completely explained the events of 9/11: “For people who think 9/11 was a government conspiracy, the focus is not on promoting a specific rival theory, but in trying to debunk the official account.” —- But now, thanks to the internet, people who doubt official stories are no longer excluded from public conversation; the CIA’s 44-year-old campaign to stifle debate using the “conspiracy theory” smear is nearly worn-out. In academic studies, as in comments on news articles, pro-conspiracy voices are now more numerous – and more rational – than anti-conspiracy ones. No wonder the anti-conspiracy people are sounding more and more like a bunch of hostile, paranoid cranks.

    Link Between Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Increased Prostate Cancer Risk Confirmed
    July 10, 2013 — A second large, prospective study by scientists at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center has confirmed the link between high blood concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids and an increased risk of prostate cancer.–Published July 11 in the online edition of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, the latest findings indicate that high concentrations of EPA, DPA and DHA — the three anti-inflammatory and metabolically related fatty acids derived from fatty fish and fish-oil supplements — are associated with a 71 percent increased risk of high-grade prostate cancer. The study also found a 44 percent increase in the risk of low-grade prostate cancer and an overall 43 percent increase in risk for all prostate cancers.—The increase in risk for high-grade prostate cancer is important because those tumors are more likely to be fatal.–The findings confirm a 2011 study published by the same Fred Hutch scientific team that reported a similar link between high blood concentrations of DHA and a more than doubling of the risk for developing high-grade prostate cancer. The latest study also confirms results from a large European study.–“The consistency of these findings suggests that these fatty acids are involved in prostate tumorigenesis and recommendations to increase long-chain omega-3 fatty acid intake, in particular through supplementation, should consider its potential risks,” the authors wrote.—“We’ve shown once again that use of fish supplements may be harmful,[F5]” said Alan Kristal, Dr.P.H., the paper’s senior author and member of the Fred Hutch Public Health Sciences Division. Kristal also noted a recent analysis published in the Journal of the American Medical Association that questioned the benefit of omega-3 supplementation for cardiovascular diseases. The analysis, which combined the data from 20 studies, found no reduction in all-cause mortality, heart attacks or strokes.–“What’s important is that we have been able to replicate our findings from 2011 and we have confirmed that marine omega-3 fatty acids play a role in prostate cancer occurrence,” said corresponding author Theodore Brasky, Ph.D., a research assistant professor at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center who was a postdoctoral trainee at Fred Hutch when the research was conducted. “It’s important to note, however, that these results do not address the question of whether omega-3’s play a detrimental role in prostate cancer prognosis,” he said.–Kristal said the findings in both Fred Hutch studies were surprising because omega-3 fatty acids are believed to have a host of positive health effects based on their anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation plays a role in the development and growth of many cancers.—It is unclear from this study why high levels of omega-3 fatty acids would increase prostate cancer risk, according to the authors, however the replication of this finding in two large studies indicates the need for further research into possible mechanisms. One potentially harmful effect of omega-3 fatty acids is their conversion into compounds that can cause damage to cells and DNA, and their role in immunosuppression. Whether these effects impact cancer risk is not known.—The difference in blood concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids between the lowest and highest risk groups was about 2.5 percentage points (3.2 percent vs. 5.7 percent), which is somewhat larger than the effect of eating salmon twice a week, Kristal said. The current study analyzed data and specimens collected from men who participated in the Selenium and Vitamin E Cancer Prevention Trial (SELECT), a large randomized, placebo-controlled trial to test whether selenium and vitamin E, either alone or combined, reduced prostate cancer risk. That study showed no benefit from selenium intake and an increase in prostate cancers in men who took vitamin E.—The group included in the this analysis consisted of 834 men who had been diagnosed with incident, primary prostate cancers (156 were high-grade cancer) along with a comparison group of 1,393 men selected randomly from the 35,500 participants in SELECT. The National Cancer Institute and the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine funded the research.—Also participating in the study were additional Fred Hutch scientists and researchers from the University of Texas, University of California, University of Washington, National Cancer Institute and the Cleveland Clinic.—Story Source-The above story is reprinted from materials provided by Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, via Newswise. –Journal Reference-T.

    Iodine Directions and Protocol
     
    Iodine Directions… iodoral or lugols or nascent or etc. see below
     
    Follow this exactly, you are to take this Iodine by the drop in a glass of water 1x-4x day
     
    First day apply one drop onto front of wrist closest to the veins and see how many hours it takes to disappear—Now once you see how many hours it takes before that drop of iodine takes to disappear, you know how deficient you are… Take internally or externally Take these drops in water or any beverage…. 1-4 times per day in divided doses….
     
    Day 1 take 3 drops
    Day 2 take 4 drops
    Day 3 take 5 drops
    Day 4 take 6 drops
    Day 5 take 7 drops
    Day 6 take 8 drops
    Day 7 Day 8 and Day 9 take zero drops
    Day 10 start repeating it all over again.
     
    When treating something therapeutic then you can use a much higher dose for several weeks then taper it back down—maintain magnesium when using the higher dosing-to avoid a potential heart rate increase—there have been usage of 60 drops or higher a day in divided doses to treat severe depression and anxiety levele with the use of 20 drops 3 times a day —for 3 weeks then reduced to 4 drops and then owered to 1-2 with dramatic results in a reversal of this condition (s)
     
    When bottle is almost done in about 30 days you are to take one drop again and apply it to your inside wrist in morning and see how many hours it takes to disappear again…Continue for 3 months minimum, and if the Iodine lasts longer than 24 hours … then you are saturated, and you are done.—then maintain the dose to 1 to 2 times a week or as needed–You can continue to take it for life at rate of drops per day for days 1 thru 4 and cycle off every several weeks take a few days off, or use daily a dose you find effective for you to sustain your level of health-apply the protocols use it in cycles…you will see multiple benefits.and protection… Most esp good for pregnant women or women who are nursing to get this into their babies (via mother’s milk) , if taken between time of conception in the womb and 18 months after birth, ie via nursing from mother’s milk… Iodine affects that amazing IQ!
     
    The Foundation used this substance back in the day about 2003ish.. at local universities while experimenting on the affects on college students in terms of what happens when you have full iodine levels in about 3 months (6 months for some)… Bipolar, and manic depressives, and one amazing schizo college kid, who recognized his own problem, and one previous honor student in High School going to be kicked out soon for bad grades and being schizo and scary now… all back to normal in about 3 months = also schizo talking to self with tendencies such as loony kid in middle of the dorm hall when no one there was back to normal again! I could go on forever on this stuff… but I’ll stop here for now!
    Do NOT take at night as it will keep you up all night… just once a day sometime preferably before 3pm or at worst… you’re pushing it at 6pm…. But after 6pm no way!!
     
    now… keep in mind, the child’s IQ is determined during the time you are pregnant with the child until 18 months after birth… so keep taking iodine the entire time… if not for life, b/c it will get into the mother’s milk ok?? You want that! Just do not give Iodine to the child directly obviously!! Give it to yourself instead!!! –While pregnant and breast feeding just take 1 drops of iodine 5 days per week cycle off on weekends as a suggestion …

    EFFECTS of CONTRAILS, PERSISTENT and/or SPREADING and/or CHEMTRAILS
     
    Ø Guaranteed, when “they” are flying and spraying, you WILL have cloudy skies, for at least some of the day or night, because they do spray at night. This will occur no matter what the IMET tells you or what your Fire Weather forecast indicates – guaranteed – especially during persistent spreading contrail episodes.
     
    Ø Given the above, you may have somewhat reduced fire behavior during the day, albeit short-lived at times, because of the guaranteed cloud cover for some or most or all day or night, depending on winds aloft; sometimes they last all day.
     
    Ø Conversely, your night-time fire behavior may be more active under warmer, cloudy skies because of little and/or no Fuel Moisture Recovery. They spray at night.
     
    Ø You may experience hotter burning fires in certain areas because of the metals being sprayed, e.g. aluminum and magnesium, settling onto the fuels, especially in/adjacent to military bases and/or heavy or recurring spray areas.
     
    Ø You and your Crew may experience unusual illnesses or ailments as you work areas where the fuels and/or soils, permeated with these sprayed metals begin to burn and consume, emitting noxious smoke and fumes, especially next to military bases with aircraft and along military flight paths.
     
    Ø You and your Crew may experience more illnesses and ailments, especially if you’re exposed to the open skies during heavy spray days and/or nights.
     
    Simply stated, chemtrails and HAARP clouds are apples and oranges. Yes, they may occur at the same time, and the last year or so, they often do

If there is a stated legal limit on the number of lactating animals producing milk or the volume of milk sold each month, the chart reflects that.———–The sale of raw pet milk is legal in just about every state if the producer has a commercial feed license or its equivalent or has otherwise fulfilled state requirements to sell pet milk. Most states, however, will not issue commercial feed licenses for the sale of raw pet milk.

    Intestinal Bacteria Linked to White Blood Cell Cancer
    July 16, 2013 — Researchers from UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center (JCCC) have discovered that specific types of bacteria that live in the gut are major contributors to lymphoma, a cancer of the white blood cells that are part of the human immune system. The study, led by Robert Schiestl, member of the JCCC and professor of pathology and laboratory medicine, environmental health sciences, and radiation oncology, was published online recently in the journal Cancer Research.–In rodents, intestinal bacteria influence obesity, intestinal inflammation, and certain types of epithelial cancers. Those cancers affect the coverings of the stomach, liver or colon. However, little is known about the identity of the bacterial species that promote the growth of or protect the body from cancer, or about their effect on lymphoma.–Up to 1,000 different species of bacteria (intestinal microbiota) live in the human gut. Intestinal microbiota number 100 trillion cells; over 90% of the cells in the body are bacteria. The composition of each person’s microbiome — the body’s bacterial make-up — is very different, due to the original childhood source of bacteria, and the effects of diet and lifestyle.–Schiestl’s group wanted to determine whether differences in peoples’ microbiomes affect their risk for lymphoma, and whether changing the bacteria can reduce this risk. They studied mice with ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T), a genetic disease that in humans and mice is associated with a high rate of B-cell lymphoma. They discovered that, of mice with A-T, those with certain microbial species lived much longer than those with other bacteria before developing lymphoma, and had less of the gene damage (genotoxicity) that causes lymphoma.—“This study is the first to show a relationship between intestinal microbiota and the onset of lymphoma,” Schiestl said. “Given that intestinal microbiota is a potentially modifiable trait, these results hold considerable promise for intervention of B cell lymphoma and other diseases.”–The scientists were also able to create a detailed catalog of bacteria types with promoting or protective effects on genotoxicity lymphoma, which could be used in the future to create combined therapies that kill the bacteria that promote cancer (such as antibiotics) and expand the bacteria that protect from cancer (such as probiotics).–This work was supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), JCCC, the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America, the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research, the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science and Research, NASA, University of California Toxic Substances Research and Teaching Program, and the UCLA Graduate Division.–Story Source–The above story is reprinted from materials provided by University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences.

    NUS Researchers Developed World’s First Water Treatment Techniques Using Apple And Tomato Peels
    Published: July 19, 2013.
    By National University of Singapore
    http://www.nus.edu.sg/
    One of the most crucial problems affecting the world today is the scarcity of potable water. In a bid to make clean water available at low cost, Mr Ramakrishna Mallampati, a PhD candidate at the National University of Singapore (NUS), experimented with water treatment techniques using materials that are easily available, and came up with novel ways to purify water using the peels of apples and tomatoes. This is the first time that the peels of the two fruits have been used to remove different types of pollutants in water.—-The studies were conducted under the guidance of Associate Professor Suresh Valiyaveettil of the Department of Chemistry at the NUS Faculty of Science. The NUS team hopes that their water purification methods can benefit communities living in places where there is little electricity or resources to set up a water purification plant.
    Scarcity of clean water—–The scarcity of clean water is expected to worsen in the future due to over usage, lack of conservation methods and dwindling natural supply of clean water, even in countries with significant water resources.[F1]–Many hazardous pollutants enter the water supply through many channels, including waste disposal, industry effluent release or rain water drainage. Such pollutants need to be removed before the water can be consumed. However, most water purification technologies are not accessible to economically disadvantaged people around the world.—The challenge for scientists is to develop robust water purification methods that could carry out water treatment at low cost, with minimal energy consumption and using less chemicals in the process so as to reduce negative impact on the environment.
    Tomato peel: an efficient adsorbent for water purification—Tomato is the second most consumed vegetable in the world, with approximately 30 per cent consumed as processed products. The disposal of the tomato skin and its other fibrous materials is an economic waste for many food processing industries.—Mr Ramakrishna evaluated the effectiveness of tomato peel as an adsorbent by using different pollutants. He also studied the structure of the tomato peels to assess their efficiency as biomaterials to remove toxic metal ions and organic pollutants from water. In addition, factors such as the pH, nature and amount of adsorbent used for extraction were considered to establish the optimum conditions under which tomato peel could remove various pollutants from water.—His study revealed that tomato peels can effectively remove different contaminants in water, including dissolved organic and inorganic chemicals, dyes and pesticides, and they can also be used in large scale applications. The results were published in the Royal Society of Chemistry journal RSC Advances in September 2012.
    Apple peel: a biomass for water purification—In addition to tomato peels, Mr Ramakrishna also explored the viability of using the peels of apples for water purification, as apple peels are easily available as biowaste from food processing industries and they are biodegradable.—Similar to tomato peels, apple peels can also remove a range of dissolved water pollutants through the adsorption process. In order to enhance the ability of apple peels towards extraction of negatively charged pollutants, Mr Ramakrishna immobilised naturally occurring zirconium oxides onto the surface of apple peels. Zirconium loaded apple peels were found to be able to extract anions such as phosphate, arsenate, arsenite, and chromate ions from aqueous solutions. This method of water purification can also be used for large scale applications.–The findings are published in the American Chemical Society journal ASC Applied Materials & Interfaces in May 2013.
    Research findings to benefit communities living in remote villages
    Both Mr Ramakrishna and Assoc Prof Suresh hope that the findings on the use apple and tomato peels for water purification can be applied to benefit economically and technologically disadvantaged farmers living in remote villages, who depend on contaminated ground water or local rivers for their daily water needs. They intend to work with non-governmental organisations to transfer their research findings and knowledge to benefit the people.—Mr Ramakrishna and other students in Assoc Prof Suresh’s research group are now looking into the use of other fruit peels and natural fibers for water purification.

    Limonoids and their anti-proliferative and anti-aromatase properties in human breast cancer cells.
    Food Funct. 2013 Feb;4(2):258-65–Authors: Kim J, Jayaprakasha GK, Patil BS
    Lemons are a widely used citrus crop and have shown several potential health benefits. In the present study, the mechanism and effectiveness of the anti-cancer and anti-aromatase properties of limonoids were investigated for the first time. Defatted lemon (Citrus lemon L. Burm) seed powder was extracted with ethyl acetate (EtOAc) and methanol (MeOH) for 16 h each, successively. These extracts were fractionated using 1D (silica) and 2D (ion exchange and SP-70 columns) column chromatography to obtain nine limonoids. The compounds were identified by TLC, HPLC, and LC-MS techniques. A panel of 9 purified limonoids, including limonin, nomilin, obacunone, limonexic acid (LNA), isolimonexic acid (ILNA), nomilinic acid glucoside (NAG), deacetyl nomilinic acid glucoside (DNAG), limonin glucoside (LG) and obacunone glucoside (OG) as well as 4 modified compounds such as limonin methoxime (LM), limonin oxime (LO), defuran limonin (DL), and defuran nomilin (DN), were screened for their cytotoxicity on estrogen receptor (ER)-positive (MCF-7) or ER-negative (MDA-MB-231) human breast cancer cells. We further tested the mechanism of the anti-proliferative activity of limonoids using an in vitro aromatase enzyme assay and western blot with anti-caspase-7. Among the tested limonoids, 11 limonoids exhibited cytotoxicity on MCF-7 whereas 8 limonoids showed cytotoxicity against the MDA-MB-231 cell lines. Although most of the limonoids showed anti-aromatase activity, the inhibition of proliferation was not related to the anti-aromatase activity. On the other hand, the anti-proliferative activity was significantly correlated with caspase-7 activation by limonoids. Our findings indicated that the citrus limonoids may have potential for the prevention of estrogen-responsive breast cancer (MCF-7) via caspase-7 dependent pathways.–PMID: 23117440 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE]

    If you think the economy is simply going to collapse, think again. The bankers, the corporations, and the United Nations have got ecosystem accounting ready to rock and roll, and it’s set to change everything….
    … the plan is brilliant. You reduce the number from 7+ billion by at least 33% without firing one shot. You simply privatize all natural resources and then price access so that the bottom third of the globe’s population cannot afford it. And so, they die; it will be the biggest die-off of the Anthropocene epoch. From Papua New Guinea to Croatia, from Bolivia to Ghana, from Canada to Central America, from Scotland to Nigeria, from Australia to America, forests, water rights, mineral rights, arable land, national parks, and much more is being privatized with the usual outcomes: degradation, displacement of indigenous populations, higher costs, lack of access to necessary resources — starvation, death, social unrest and rebellion… (‘Natural Capital and the Real End Game’, Sandy Krolick)—There aren’t enough people talking about this. It casts a whole new light on the TPP, on the reasons for war, possible near-term changes to corporation tax, and economic failure in general, and boggles the mind when it comes to geoengineering. Whilst we can only speculate on these connections, one thing’s for sure – monocultures for biomass-products, GMOs, vaccines, pharmaceuticals, and nuclear energy will play a huge role, as they are now deemed to be renewable and/or socially responsible[F2]. –A circular economy which controls production and consumption is the ultimate aim, and this entails deep surveillance and prescriptive living for what will be called a steady-state system. The system is being implemented by measuring the new capital assets, which are created by pricing people, nature. From these new concepts, alternative currencies are forming – we’ve already got carbon credits, and social credits, and the Club of Rome (and CoR member, Bernard Lietaer), for instance, have proposed Wellness Tokens. George Soros is one of the many New Economists who are promoting community currencies.—t’s time to open our eyes to all Agenda 21 entails: there’s a lot more to it than most activists think. The communitarian ideals of smart growth and sustainable development are but one part of a much bigger movement aiming for global ‘sustainability’ by privatizing the commons. [F3]This is achieved by measuring and pricing what are called ‘ecosystem services’, or the benefits accrued from the earth, and from people. It involves putting monetary values on aspects of nature, and the ‘services’ it provides (such as pollination), as well as pricing the productivity and overall conformity of human beings (see the U.N. plan to increase Global Happiness).—World Bank and the OECD are just two of the globalists which have perfected the ways of pricing nature, and human well-being. The next step is for corporations and governments to incorporate these prices into their financial accounts, as mandated by chapter 8 of Agenda 21. This goes under various names; the term used for the masses is ‘going beyond GDP’, but more formally, the process is known as ‘integrated reporting’. Rather than just add up the usual profits and losses, they have to factor in new kinds of assets and liabilities, i.e. all the positive and negative effects the companies have, upon the earth, and upon people. –Apart from the usual built capital, i.e. goods and infrastructure, that normally make up the accounts of a company, and which are being restricted due to the fear of scarcity, four new types of self-perpetuating capital are now required to be priced, and accounted for. This new system of accountancy has been advanced for many years, and the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) has devised a framework which is to be implemented globally.
    Specifically, there are five alternative forms of capital considered in the framework: manufactured capital accounts for machines the organisation uses to produce its goods or services; natural capital such as air, water and land; human capital covering not only people’s skills and experience, but also motivations or rewards to innovate; intellectual capital taking in the intangibles providing competitive advantage; and social capital – defined as the community stakeholders which “enhance individual and collective wellbeing”, which supports the business model. (Source)—-The process of ecosystem accounting is generally made up of well-intentioned environmentalists, but led and paid for by trans-national corporations (TNCs), including Monsanto, Syngenta, Novartis, BP, Shell, Alcoa, General Motors, and Coca-Cola. (Source)-It’s unlikely that these corporations would be considered at all ‘sustainable’ by the environmentalists they are funding. Several corporations, such as Bayer, have also partnered with the U.N. to advance the protocol of Agenda 21. —Since the inception of the protocol, at the Earth Summit in 1992, unsustainable businesses have been busy greening themselves. In the ’90s, corporate governance became the hot topic, leading to the promotion of ‘business ethics’, and seeding the idea that corporations ‘care’ about the consequences of their actions[F4]. Small changes were made to how companies were run, so that they could promote themselves as ‘doing the right thing’. All of the top companies now have a team who deal with the image of the firm in terms of its ‘corporate social responsibility’ (CSR). Although the focus has been on carbon-reduction, the social aspect has become increasingly hyped. Being ‘socially responsible’ is said to mean showing consideration for the well-being of all shareholders (i.e. the people you interact with, or all those affected by the operations of a business) and usually manifests as donating to social causes, or getting company employees to do volunteer work for a charity.[F5] –There has been a concurrent rise in social investment, such that philanthro-capitalism is now mainstream. The City of London Corporation promotes itself as conforming to the green and caring new world order in much the same way as the other major players:
    The City Corporation has been active in the “Social Action” area for many years. We call this activity “Supporting Society”. We already have a proud record of promoting volunteering, [F6]environmental management, philanthropy and other forms of social responsibility such as local recruitment and responsible procurement to City businesses, workers, residents and our own staff.
    Commenting on the rise of social investment, Mark Boleat, Policy Chairman at the City of London Corporation, noted there is now a “fast-increasing demand for risk and growth capital”, and recommends applying tax reliefs to social investment. Earlier this year, he said—A recent report by the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) found that demand in the social investment market in England could reach £1bn by 2016, five times what it is today…… the demand for capital in the social sector could grow at a rate of 38% per annum.—Since the Fortune 500 gave birth to, and raised, their corporate images to the new green standard, there have been many changes to company law around the world to enforce corporate ‘commitments’ to being carbon-neutral, and socially responsible. There has also been a huge increase in businesses which help both the public and the private sector to achieve these commitments, such that now the ‘sustainability industry’ is booming. Over the years, then, it has become ‘de rigour’ to try to be green.—
    The concept of ‘sustainable development’ has taken on many layers of meaning, and has become so normalised, that practitioners who use the term have never even heard of Agenda 21. Town planners laugh in the faces of opponents of the agenda, because they believe strongly in what they do. After all, the science is settled – most of the world has already been ‘delphied’, having been besieged with visioning by the media for many years. Think – ‘icecaps melting’ and ‘cute polar bears’. So most people accept the sustainability agenda without question, [F7]and need no further ‘nudging’. They are not conscious of steering the agenda themselves, nor of the consequences. —
    Take, for instance, Lisa Duncan, who is a “Chevron Environmental Specialist”, and has become a volunteer with United Way’s Earn It! Keep It! Save It! free tax preparation program. Lisa says, “The feeling around Chevron is that we live and work in the area and should be part of improving the community….I wanted to help people, and I wanted it to be interesting.” (Source)—Another major mistake is to presume that anyone who says they care about the environment, and pays them to work to ‘save the world’ must be genuine. However, the sudden growth of ‘social giving’, and claims of ‘carbon-neutrality’, by the corporatocracy are not mirrored at the grassroots level. More to the point, those funding the eco-social technocratic smart world order are some of the most unsustainable/non-ecofriendly industries you could think of. Their keenness is so ripe, you can just smell their expectation of the profits they would reap.—So, if you’re going to say a word to anyone about Agenda 21, you’ve really got to tell them that, first and foremost, it’s about creating assets from nature and people. It is a system that will increase zoning and smart growth. The plan is so huge, so ambitious, and so nearly ready – and it encompasses EVERY vileness of the New World Order we deplore. –Take drones, for instance. They would be used to spy on people to ensure compliance with the new regime, e.g. gathering evidence of anyone damaging an asset, such as marring a pretty view in an eco-tourist hotspot, or walking on soil in a protected area.—-Take smart meters – these will be but one mechanism to enforce allocation of individual energy allowances, in the steady-state system.—Take GMOs and vaccines – they are part of the caring façade of the NWO, as they are already being marketed as ‘socially and environmentally responsible’ –[F8] the NewSpeak rationale for global law.–Take national sovereignty, political ideology, the ability to choose where and who you want to be – all of these are subsumed by the New Economy, which is a global database of assets and liabilities, comprised of measurements of natural, built and human capital. –The right to give birth, access to water, food, clean air, a home, a gun, and possibly even the right to life – all will come under the laws associated with ownership of resources, and the aim of the communitarian steady-state system: R2P – to avoid running out, to protect what they say we have, and to always leave enough for future generations.–Think about the wars being waged – it’s not just central banks and the expansion of development/extraction in the Third World that the elites want. They need EVERY country to abide by the new system, because it can only be said to work if ALL production, and ALL consumption, is tallied and priced, so that quantum computers can claim to run global simulations of the ups and downs of the bio-economy. The idea is that we have to balance consumption with production, on a global scale, to maintain an ecological and psychological equilibrium, using the steady-state economic paradigm. It involves collecting a huge amount of data, on all of us. It is also open to endless abuses from the manipulation of data and statistics, such as by re-defining what constitutes scarcity, abundance, value. For this, the system needs data from all parts of the world. Non-compliance would be deemed akin to eco-terrorism![F9]—-The number of power-brokers playing the game of Global Monopoly is being reduced.—The countries which are not yet following the laws of Agenda 21 need to be made to comply. Iran, Iraq, Russia, China, Egypt, Afghanistan, and Israel have already joined the sustainability-club. Now the elites need to convince North Korea and Syria, and more of the African nations, such as Somalia, to conform. Widespread bombing may no longer be the choice method of control, since this damages profitable natural capital assets. Cyber-war and targeted drone strikes are much cleaner, less damaging to the environment – and this is worth much MUCH more to them than the (unproductive) people they kill.—
    The earth is being sold off: incorporated. And so are we. Because part of the plan involves measuring our happiness, which they call well-being, and so the countries which have the fittest, strongest, well-fed, schooled and happy conformists will be the ones who secure higher measures of GDP. This plan to ‘go beyond GDP’ – measuring the worth of the earth, and the people – will lead to the commodification of these new assets, which will then be tradeable, just like carbon. Over time, they come to function as currencies.—
    A good starting point to try and wrap your head around some of the basic concepts is a child-friendly guide, published by Peace Child International, the U.N.’s Youth Movement, called ‘Introduction to Sustainable Devleopment’. It describes in simple terms the new economy being shaped by Agenda 21 (including Happiness Economics), and illustrates how lovely it all sounds. —
    Even the oceans are being sold off – or rather, the services they are deemed to provide, such as the profits gained from fishery, and ecotourism.
    Besides the Green Economy, investment in the services provided by the oceans is growing. In February, this Blue Economy was given a boost by a new public-private partnership, launched with an investment of $1.5bn by World Bank’s Global Partnership for Oceans at The Economist’s World Oceans Summit. The system requires a constant stream of data from sensors like bioMEMS, and satellites, such as the Artificial Intelligence for Ecosystem Services (ARIES) technology.

    Dietary Fructose Causes Liver Damage in Animal Model, Study Finds
    By Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center
    http://www.wfubmc.edu
    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – June 19, 2013 – The role of dietary fructose in the development of obesity and fatty liver diseases remains controversial, with previous studies indicating that the problems resulted from fructose and a diet too high in calories.–However, a new study conducted in an animal model at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center showed that fructose rapidly caused liver damage even without weight gain. The researchers found that over the six-week study period liver damage more than doubled in the animals fed a high-fructose diet as compared to those in the control group.–The study is published in the June 19 online edition of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.—“Is a calorie a calorie? Are they all created equal? Based on this study, we would say not,” said Kylie Kavanagh, D.V.M., assistant professor of pathology-comparative medicine at Wake Forest Baptist and lead author of the study.—In a previous trial which is referenced in the current journal article, Kavanagh’s team studied monkeys who were allowed to eat as much as they wanted of low-fat food with added fructose for seven years, as compared to a control group fed a low-fructose, low-fat diet for the same time period. Not surprisingly, the animals allowed to eat as much as they wanted of the high-fructose diet gained 50 percent more weight than the control group. They developed diabetes at three times the rate of the control group and also developed hepatic steatosis, or non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.—The big question for the researchers was what caused the liver damage. Was it because the animals got fat from eating too much, or was it something else?–To answer that question, this study was designed to prevent weight gain. Ten middle-aged, normal weight monkeys who had never eaten fructose were divided into two groups based on comparable body shapes and waist circumference. Over six weeks, one group was fed a calorie-controlled diet consisting of 24 percent fructose, while the control group was fed a calorie-controlled diet with only a negligible amount of fructose, approximately 0.5 percent.—Both diets had the same amount of fat, carbohydrate and protein, but the sources were different, Kavanagh said. The high-fructose group’s diet was made from flour, butter, pork fat, eggs and fructose (the main ingredient in corn syrup), similar to what many people eat, while the control group’s diet was made from healthy complex carbohydrates and soy protein.—Every week the research team weighed both groups and measured their waist circumference, then adjusted the amount of food provided to prevent weight gain. At the end of the study, the researchers measured biomarkers of liver damage through blood samples and examined what type of bacteria was in the intestine through fecal samples and intestinal biopsies.
    “What surprised us the most was how quickly the liver was affected and how extensive the damage was, especially without weight gain as a factor,” Kavanagh said. “Six weeks in monkeys is roughly equivalent to three months in humans.”-In the high-fructose group, the researchers found that the type of intestinal bacteria hadn’t changed, but that they were migrating to the liver more rapidly and causing damage there. It appears that something about the high fructose levels was causing the intestines to be less protective than normal, and consequently allowing the bacteria to leak out at a 30 percent higher rate, Kavanagh said.—One of the limitations of the study was that it only tested for fructose and not dextrose. Fructose and dextrose are simple sugars found naturally in plants.—“We studied fructose because it is the most commonly added sugar in the American diet, but based on our study findings, we can’t say conclusively that fructose caused the liver damage,” Kavanagh said. “What we can say is that high added sugars caused bacteria to exit the intestines, go into the blood stream and damage the liver.–“The liver damage began even in the absence of weight gain. This could have clinical implications because most doctors and scientists have thought that it was the fat in and around tissues in the body that caused the health problems.”–The Wake Forest Baptist team plans to begin a new study using the same controls but testing for both fructose and dextrose over a longer time frame.

    The Shocking Ingredients In Beer
    Why are the ingredients not listed on the label? Which brands can we trust? Which brands are trying to slowly poison us with cheap and harmful ingredients? All of these questions were going through my head at once at lightning speed. So a year ago, research was started to what was really in beer and after questioning several beer companies, reading books about food science, and talking to experts, the information revealed was downright shocking.—it is obvious.—Caring about what you eat doesn’t necessarily translate into caring about what you drink and this is a HUGE MISTAKE.—Alcohol is metabolized by the body differently than all other calories you consume. Alcohol is one of the only substances that you consume that can permeate your digestive system and go straight into your bloodstream. It bypasses normal digestion and is absorbed into the body intact, where it goes straight into the liver.—Your liver is your main fat-burning organ. If you are trying to lose weight or even maintain your ideal weight, drinking alcohol is one of your worst enemies. The liver is going to metabolize alcohol first vs. the fat you want to get rid of – making weight loss even harder. Additionally, one of the primary functions of the liver is to remove environmental toxins from your body – if it is overtaxed with alcohol, the normal removal of these toxins becomes extremely diminished and can result in rapid aging, loss of libido, and other diseases.– Beer, especially American beer, is made with all sorts of ingredients beyond the basic hops, malt and yeast. There are numerous other ingredients used to clarify, stabilize, preserve, enhance the color and flavor of beer.–When you drink beer, there is almost a 100% chance that you don’t know what you are drinking (unless you quizzed the beer companies like I did). The ingredients in beer are not required by law to be listed anywhere on the label and manufacturers have no legal obligation to disclose the ingredients. For regular beer, calorie levels and percent alcohol are optional and for light beer calories are mandatory but alcohol levels are optional.–Michele Simon, a public health lawyer, author of Appetite for Profit, and president of Eat Drink Politics told me the reason that beer companies don’t disclose ingredients is simple: they don’t have to.—“Ingredient labeling on food products and non-alcoholic beverages is required by the Food and Drug Administration. But a whole other federal agency regulates beer, and not very well. The Department of Treasury – the same folks who collect your taxes – oversees alcoholic beverages. That probably explains why we know more about what’s in a can of Coke than a can of Bud. You can also thank the alcohol industry, which has lobbied for years against efforts to require ingredient labeling.”—- If the beer companies aren’t required to tell us the exact list of
    ingredients then there was a need to investigate this to get to the truth —
    Number 1, to obtain a baseline list of “legal” additives allowed in beer from the book “Chemicals Additives in Beer” by the Center of Science and Public Interest. This list allowed anyone to ask specific questions about each beer being investigated. For example – beer sold here in America can contain several of the following ingredients:
    · Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) – alcohol is already addictive with some people, Alcohol + MSG direct overload and brain burn out
    · Propylene Glycol (an ingredient found in anti-freeze)
    · Calcium Disodium EDTA (made from formaldehyde, sodium cayanide, and Ethylenediamine)
    · Many different types of sulfites and anti-microbial preservatives (linked to allergies and asthma)
    · Natural Flavors (can come from aborted babies, soy, left over byproducts natural including a beavers anal gland)
    · High Fructose Corn Syrup
    · GMO Sugars – Dextrose, Corn Syrup
    · Caramel Coloring (Class III or IV made from ammonia and classified as a carcinogen)
    · FD&C Blue 1 (Made from petroleum, linked to allergies, asthma and hyperactivity)
    · FD&C Red 40 (Made from petroleum, linked to allergies, asthma and hyperactivity)
    · FD&C Yellow 5 (Made from petroleum, linked to allergies, asthma and hyperactivity)
    · Insect-Based Dyes: carmine derived from cochineal insects to color their beer.
    · Animal Based Clarifiers: Findings include isinglass (dried fish bladder), gelatin (from skin, connective tissue, and bones), and casein (found in milk)
    · Foam Control: Used for head retention; (glyceryl monostearate and pepsin are both potentially derived from animals)
    · BPA (Bisphenol A is a component in many can liners and it may leach into the beer. BPA can mimic the female hormone estrogen and may affect sperm count, and other organ functions.)
    · Carrageenan (linked to inflammation in digestive system, IBS and considered a carcinogen in some circumstances)
    During my investigationthere was not a single mainstream beer company to share the full list of ingredients contained in their beer. But there was some disclousre to the use of these ingredients in writing so Here is this information…
    Carcinogenic Caramel Coloring
    Newcastle, a UK brand, confessed to using what I would consider one of the most controversial food additives. Toasted barley is usually what gives beer its golden or deep brown color, however in this case, Newcastle beer is also colored artificially with caramel color. This caramel coloring is manufactured by heating ammonia and sulfites under high pressure, which creating carcinogenic compounds. If beer companies were required by law to list the ingredients, Newcastle would likely have to have a cancer warning label under California law because it is a carcinogen proven to cause liver tumors, lung tumors, and thyroid tumors in rats and mice.
    Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)
    Many of the beers I questioned contained one or more possible GMO ingredients.
    High Fructose Corn Syrup (Guinness – unable to provide an affidavit for non-GMO proof)
    Corn syrup (Miller Light, Coors, Corona, Fosters, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Red Stripe)
    Dextrose (Budweiser, Bud Light, Busch Light, Michelob Ultra)
    Corn (Red Stripe, Miller Coors Brand, Anheuser-Busch Brands)
    Most beers brewed commercially are made with more GMO corn than barley. Many of the companies dodged the GMO question – however Miller Coors had a very forthcoming and honest response. They stated “Corn syrup gives beer a milder and lighter-bodied flavor” and “Corn syrups may be derived from a mixture of corn (conventional and biotech.)”, admitting their use of GMOs.
     
    Pabst Blue Ribbon responded saying their corn syrup was “special” and “made of carbohydrates and some simple sugars like dextrose and maltose. The sugars are fermented into alcohol and CO2, and the carbohydrates, both from the corn syrup and the malt, remain in the beers as flavor, color and body components.”—Dextrose and maltose can come from a variety of substances that are sweet, but likely are derived from GMO corn because it is super cheap for a company to use corn instead of fruit or other non-GMO sources. With cheap beer – you are not just getting a cheap buzz, you are getting the worst of the worst. Just like with cheap fast food – if you don’t invest in your beer – you will be drinking a lower quality product like Pabst Blue Ribbon that is made from GMO Corn and Corn Syrup.——–In 2007, Greenpeace found unapproved and experimental GMO Rice strain in Anheuser-Busch (Budweiser, Bud Light) beer. Anheuser-Busch responded saying their US-grown long-grained rice “may have micro levels” of a genetically engineered protein called Liberty Link, but added that the protein is “substantially removed or destroyed” during the brewing of beer sold domestically. Don’t you think it’s hard to trust any beer company that gets caught using experimental food made in a laboratory? GMOs have not been tested long term on human beings and one of the main pesticides (Roundup) they spray on GMO crops are linked to inflammation, cancer and other diseases.
     
    High Fructose Corn Syrup & Fish Bladders
    Speaking of trusting companies, let’s get one thing straight, Guinness beer is no longer owned by the Irish, they are now owned by a large beer conglomerate called Diageo and manufactured in over 50 different countries. No matter how many St. Patty’s Day celebrations you’ve had with this dark stout, it’s time to stop because they use high fructose corn syrup in their beer. But, Guinness beer also contains isinglass, a gelatin-like substance produced from the swim bladder of a fish. This ingredient helps remove any “haziness,” solids, or yeast byproducts from the beer. The sneaky thing this beer company does like many of the companies mentioned here today is create an illusion of using the best ingredients when in actuality what they tell you publicly on their websites is a complete farce. On Guinness FAQ’s – they have a question that states: “What are the key ingredients in Guinness” and the answer doesn’t reveal the whole picture – it only states “Our key ingredients – other than inspiration – are roasted, malted barley, hops, yeast and water.”
    So What Beers Are Additive and GMO Free?
    If you enjoy the occasional beer and wish to maintain your healthy lifestyle, choosing one without GMOs and additives is ideal. Unfortunately, most of the mainstream beers available have additives, but luckily, there are a few that don’t. For example, Sierra Nevada, Heineken, and Amstel Light appear to be pretty clean (but these companies still wouldn’t disclose the full list of ingredients . They did say they use non-GMO grains, no artificial ingredients, stabilizers or preservatives)[F1].—German Beers are also a good bet. The Germans are very serious about the purity of their beers and enacted a purity law called “Reinheitsgebot” that requires all German beers to be only produced with a core ingredient list of water, hops, yeast, malted barley or wheat. Advocates of German beers insist that they taste cleaner and some even claim they don’t suffer from hangovers as a result.—Another choice to consider is also Certified Organic Beers ( at best questionable). They are required by law to not include GMOs and other harmful additives. Organic beers also support environmental friendly practices and reduce the amount of pesticides and toxins in our air, support Organic farmers – which is a huge plus. [F2]
    Craft & Microbrews Beers – For certain local craft and micro beers, you can ask those companies for a list of ingredients and many of them will be up front with you. However, companies like Miller Coors are slowly closing in on craft beers and buying them up one by one… like they did when they created the unique popular variety called Blue Moon (the beer you drink with an orange) and Anhesuer-Busch did this with Rolling Rock and Goose Island Brewery. Make sure your favorite craft and microbrew is still independently owned and controlled before taking a sip.
    In the end – if you decide to drink beer, you are definitely drinking at your own risk for more reasons than just the crazy ingredients that could be in them. The key point to remember is – if you like to drink beer and want to be healthy, drink it infrequently and quiz the beer companies for the truth. Find a beer that you can trust and stick with it.[F3]
    For your reference, here are some important questions to ask your favorite beer company:
    1. What are the ingredients in your beer – all of them from start to finish?
    2. Are any of your ingredients GMO?
    3. Do you use any soy, corn, or rice processing ingredients? (Examples include: dextrose, corn syrup, etc.)
    4. Do you add any natural, artificial flavors or colors to the beer? (Examples include: yellow #5, caramel coloring, red #40, MSG, natural flavors)
    5. Are there any additional preservatives, stabilizers and/or clarifying agents added to your beer during processing? (Examples include: propylene glycol, Calcium Disodium EDTA, anything ending in “sulfite” like sodium metabisulfite, Heptylparaben, isinglass)

    Inhibition of proinflammatory biomarkers in THP1 macrophages by polyphenols derived from chamomile, meadowsweet and willow bark.
    Phytother Res. 2013 Apr;27(4):588-94
    Authors: Drummond EM, Harbourne N, Marete E, Martyn D, Jacquier J, O’Riordan D, Gibney ER
    Abstract
    Antiinflammatory compounds in the diet can alleviate excessive inflammation, a factor in the pathogenesis of common diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, atherosclerosis and diabetes. This study examined three European herbs, chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla), meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria L.) and willow bark (Salix alba L.), which have been traditionally used to treat inflammation and their potential for use as antiinflammatory agents. Aqueous herbal extracts and isolated[F4] polyphenolic compounds (apigenin, quercetin and salicylic acid, 0-100 μM) were incubated with THP1 macrophages, and interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-6 and tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) were measured. At concentrations of 10 μM, both apigenin and quercetin reduced IL-6 significantly ( p < 0.05). Apigenin at 10 μM and quercetin at 25 μM reduced TNF-α significantly ( p < 0.05). Amongst the herbal extracts, willow bark had the greatest antiinflammatory activity at reducing IL-6 and TNF-α production. This was followed by meadowsweet and then chamomile. The lowest effective antiinflammatory concentrations were noncytotoxic (MTT mitochondrial activity assay). The Comet assay, which was used to study the protective effect of the isolated phenols against oxidative damage, showed positive results for all three polyphenols. These are the first findings that demonstrate the antiinflammatory capacity of these herbal extracts.—PMID: 22711544 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE

    Catholic Church Endorses GMOs As Cure for World Hunger
    By Katie Rucke
    Genetically modified organisms –(GMOs) are the answer to ending world hunger, at least according to the former leader of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Benedict XVI.—Pope Francis, center, meets Apostolic nuncios at the Vatican, June 21. (AP/L’Osservatore Romano)—According to a 2009 WikiLeaks cable from the U.S. embassy in the Vatican, it was discovered that “Vatican officials remain largely supportive of genetically modified crops as a vehicle for protecting the environment while feeding the hungry,” as a result of lobbying efforts by the U.S.–The cables from the U.S. embassy indicated that if the U.S. could convince the church that GMOs were good, the church would be able to convince its members. This would be a boost for the GMO industry since the Catholic Church claims more than 1 billion members.–Given that GMOs have caused controversy around the world recently as questions arise about their impact on human health, it’s uncertain whether the church will be able to convince all its members GMOs are a good thing.– According to the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, doctors should recommend non-GMO diets to all persons, since some animal studies have suggested that diets with GMO foods can lead to organ damage, gastrointestinal and immune system disorders, accelerated aging and infertility.–Several countries have banned the use of GMO ingredients or require labeling for products containing them. In the U.S., home to the big agriculture businesses that created GMOs, there is no GMO ban and Americans have just begun to demand GMO products be labeled as such.–Though the 2009 WikiLeaks cable revealed the Catholic Church was in favor of GMOs, Monsignor James Reinert, a member of the Vatican Council of Justice and Peace, noted that the Catholic Church has come to a “consensus on the need for GMOs with one caveat.”– “The Vatican cannot force all bishops to endorse biotechnology,” he said, “particularly if their opposition has to do with concerns over protecting profits of large corporations who hold the patents for the crops, versus feeding the hungry.”—Poor Health Epidemic Brought On By GMOs?–Some Scientist have concluded that GMO products, introduced by biotechnology companies such as Monsanto – DOW – Dupont – Syngesta-Cargil – BASF- ADM and a host of other Biotech Companies would work toward ending world hunger and malnutrition, could be connected to an increase in the percentage of Americans with chronic illnesses, food allergies and disorders such as autism, reproductive disorders and digestive problems.—Reports from the International Assessment of Agricultural Knowledge, Science and Technology for Development also indicate that GMO crops do not necessarily increase yields.—According to the report, “assessment of the technology lags behind its development, information is anecdotal and contradictory, and uncertainty about possible benefits and damage is unavoidable.” In addition the report states that GMOs “have nothing to offer the goals of reducing hunger and poverty, improving nutrition, health and rural livelihoods, and facilitating social and environmental sustainability.”—The most common GMO crops grown today include over 30,000 estimated products. According to the Organic Valley Co-Op, the corn and soybeans are animal feed crops and nations that don’t consume a lot of meat won’t benefit from their use.–Science seems to have also poked holes in the church’s argument that GMOs protect the environment. In order to grow GMO crops, farmers have to use hazardous pesticides to remove weeds and keep insects away from the crops.–However, studies indicate that farmers with GMO crops not only have to use more pesticides when they have GMO crops, but have to use more hazardous pesticides.–These pesticides and herbicides have been found to harm birds, insects, amphibians, marine ecosystems and soil organisms. Studies have also found herbicides reduce biodiversity and pollute water.–Not only are these chemicals unsafe, they are expensive. According to the Organic Valley Co-Op, “the only farmers that can afford the seeds and chemicals are those from first-world countries or the wealthy landowners from developing countries, who grow the crops for export, not to feed the poor.”—New Pope, New Stance?—While the Catholic Church’s initial pro-GMO stance was issued under Pope Benedict XVI, the church’s current leader, Pope Francis, has yet to share his view on GMOs.—According to Al Jazeera, Pope Francis is a trained chemist, which gives him more information on the scientific aspect of consuming GMOs than his predecessor. Another factor that may influence Francis is his Argentinian heritage.—Argentina relies heavily on genetically modified crops. But a new documentary demonstrates the high usage of Monsanto-manufactured GMO seeds in the Latin American nation has caused issues with land ownership in addition to health problems.—Filmmaker Glenn Ellis summarized the documentary by saying that “… Doctors and scientists claim that babies are being born with crippling birth malformations and that in recent years the incidence of childhood cancer has soared. It is a phenomenon, they say, that has coincided with the introduction of Monsanto’s seed.”

    List of genetically modified foods:
    It’s virtually impossible to provide a complete list of genetically modified food (GM food) in the United States because there aren’t any laws for genetically modified crops!
    Some estimates say as many as 30,000 different products on grocery store shelves are “modified.” That’s largely because many processed foods contain soy. Half of North America’s soy crop is genetically engineered!
    Rapeseed – Resistance to certain pesticides and improved rapeseed cultivars to be free of erucic acid and glucosinolates. Gluconsinolates, which were found in rapeseed meal leftover from pressing, are toxic and had prevented the use of the meal in animal feed. In Canada, where “double-zero” rapeseed was developed, the crop was renamed “canola” (Canadian oil) to differentiate it from non-edible rapeseed.
    Honey – Honey can be produced from GM crops. Some Canadian honey comes from bees collecting nectar from GM canola plants. This has shut down exports of Canadian honey to Europe.
    Cotton – Resistant to certain pesticides – considered a food because the oil can be consumed. The introduction of genetically engineered cotton plants has had an unexpectedly effect on Chinese agriculture. The so-called Bt cotton plants that produce a chemical that kills the cotton bollworm have not only reduced the incidence of the pest in cotton fields, but also in neighboring fields of corn, soybeans, and other crops.
    Rice – Genetically modified to contain high amounts of Vitamin A. Rice containing human genes is to be grown in the US. Rather than end up on dinner plates, the rice will make human proteins useful for treating infant diarrhoea in the developing world.
    Soybean – Genetically modified to be resistant to herbicides – Soy foods including, soy beverages, tofu, soy oil, soy flour, lecithin. Other products may include breads, pastries, snack foods, baked products, fried products, edible oil products and special purpose foods.
    Sugar cane – Made resistant to certain pesticides. A large percentage of sweeteners used in processed food actually comes from corn, not sugar cane or beets. Genetically modified sugar cane is regarded so badly by consumers at the present time that it could not be marketed successfully.
    Tomatoes – Made for a longer shelf life and to prevent a substance that causes tomatoes to rot and degrade.
    Corn – Resistant to certain pesticides – Corn oil, flour, sugar or syrup. May include snack foods, baked goods, fried foods, edible oil products, confectionery, special purpose foods, and soft drinks.
    Sweet corn – genetically modified to produces its own insecticide. Officials from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have said that thousands of tonnes of genetically engineered sweetcorn have made their way into the human food supply chain, even though the produce has been approved only for use in animal feed. Recently Monsanto, a biotechnology food producer, said that about half of the USA’s sweetcorn acreage has been planted with genetically modified seed this year.
    Canola – Canola oil. May include edible oil products, fried foods, and baked products, snack foods.
    Potatoes – (Atlantic, Russett Burbank, Russet Norkatah, and Shepody) – May include snack foods, processed potato products and other processed foods containing potatoes.
    Flax – More and more food products contain flax oil and seed because of their excellent nutritional properties. No genetically modified flax is currently grown. An herbicide-resistant GM flax was introduced in 2001, but was soon taken off the market because European importers refused to buy it.
    Papaya – The first virus resistant papayas were commercially grown in Hawaii in 1999. Transgenic papayas now cover about one thousand hectares, or three quarters of the total Hawaiian papaya crop. Monsanto, donated technology to Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore, for developing a papaya resistant to the ringspot virus in India.
    Squash – (yellow crookneck) – Some zucchini and yellow crookneck squash are also GM but they are not popular with farmers.
    Red-hearted chicory – (radicchio) – Chicory (Cichorium intybus var. foliosum) is popular in some regions as a salad green, especially in France and Belgium. Scientists developed a genetically modified line of chicory containing a gene that makes it male sterile, simply facilitating the production of hybrid cultivars. Today there is no genetically modified chicory on the market.
    Cotton seed oil – Cottonseed oil and linters. Products may include blended vegetable oils, fried foods, baked foods, snack foods, edible oil products, and smallgoods casings.
    Tobacco -The company Vector has a GMO tobacco being sold under the brand of Quest® cigarettes in the U.S. It is engineered to produce low or no nicotine.
    Meat – Meat and dairy products usually come from animals that have eaten GM feed.
    Peas – Genetically modified (GM) peas created immune responses in mice, suggesting that they may also create serious allergic reactions in people. The peas had been inserted with a gene from kidney beans, which creates a protein that acts as a pesticide.
    Vegetable Oil – Most generic vegetable oils and margarines used in restaurants and in processed foods in North America are made from soy, corn, canola, or cottonseed. Unless these oils specifically say “Non-GMO” or “Organic,” it is probably genetically modified.
    Sugarbeets – May include any processed foods containing sugar.
    Dairy Products – About 22 percent of cows in the U.S. are injected with recombinant (genetically modified) bovine growth hormone (rbGH).
    Vitamins – Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is often made from corn, vitamin E is usually made from soy. Vitamins A, B2, B6, and B12 may be derived from GMOs as well as vitamin D and vitamin K may have “carriers” derived from GM corn sources, such as starch, glucose, and maltodextrin.
