The greatest environmental threat that we are facing is genetic
All over the globe, scientists are
treating the fabric of life as if it was a playground where anything
goes. Behind closed doors, scientists all over the planet are
creating some of the most freakish and most bizarre monsters that
you could possible imagine, and very few people seem concerned about
it. But the truth is that messing with the building blocks of life
is going to have some very serious consequences.
Scientists claim that they are making
our crops stronger, more productive and less vulnerable to insects.
Scientists claim that they can alter our animals so that they are
more "useful" to us. Scientists claim that genetic modification is
only going to "enhance" humanity.
But what if something goes seriously
For example, what if we learn that eating genetically
modified food is really, really bad for us? Well, at this point
than 70 percent of the processed foods sold in the United States
contain at least one ingredient that has been genetically modified.
It would be kind of hard to go back now.
We have rushed ahead and have created
hordes of freakish genetic monsters without ever seriously
considering the consequences.
Someday, future generations may look
back on us and wonder how we could have ever been so incredibly
We were promised that genetically modified crops would enable us to
feed the world. Well, the world is still starving, but we sure have
seen super weeds, super pests and super diseases all develop as a
result of genetic modification.
recent article by George Dvorsky discussed how bollworms in China
are now becoming resistant to the toxins grown inside Bt cotton...
As far as the real world mutated
bollworms are concerned, they're starting to take off in China.
The researchers discovered that resistance-conferring mutations
in cotton bollworm were three times more common in northern
China than in areas of northwestern China where less Bt cotton
has been grown.
recent NPR article detailed how we are
seeing something similar happen in the United States.
Rootworms are becoming resistant to the
toxins grown inside Bt corn, and this is starting to cause major
The scientists who called for
caution now are saying "I told you so," because there are
that a new strain of resistant rootworms is emerging. In eastern
Iowa, northwestern Illinois, and parts of Minnesota and
Nebraska, rows of Bt corn have toppled over, their roots eaten
by rootworms. Entomologist
Aaron Gassmann at Iowa State
University, who authored the PLoS One paper, collected insects
from some of these fields and found many with a
greater-than-expected ability to tolerate Bt.
This wasn't supposed to happen.
But it is happening...
Meanwhile, we are also now learning that Bt corn may not be quite as
"safe" for humans as we had been promised.
The following is from
a recent article
by Dr. Mercola...
Last year, doctors at Sherbrooke
University Hospital in Quebec
found Bt-toxin in the blood of:
93 percent of pregnant women
80 percent of umbilical
blood in their babies, and
67 percent of non-pregnant
The study authors speculate that the
Bt toxin was likely consumed in the normal diet of the Canadian
middle class - which makes sense when you consider that
genetically engineered corn is present in the vast majority of
all processed foods and drinks in the form of high fructose corn
They also suggest that the toxin may
have come from eating meat from animals fed Bt corn, which most
livestock raised in confined animal feeding operations (CAFO, or
so-called "factory farms") are.
These shocking results raise the frightening possibility that
eating Bt corn might actually turn your intestinal flora into a
sort of "living pesticide factory"… essentially manufacturing
Bt-toxin from within your digestive system on a continuing
If this hypothesis is correct, is it then also possible that the
Bt-toxin might damage the integrity of your digestive tract in
the same way it damages insects? Remember, the toxin actually
ruptures the stomach of insects, causing them to die. The
biotech industry has insisted that the Bt-toxin doesn't bind or
interact with the intestinal walls of mammals (which would
But again, there are peer-reviewed
published research showing that Bt-toxin does bind with mouse
small intestines and with intestinal tissue from rhesus monkeys.
Are you sure that the food that you are
eating is safe?

Animals Into Monsters
Scientists all over the world seem to have no problem messing with
our animals either.
Recently it was revealed that scientists in China have
modified 300 cows to produce milk that has many of the same
qualities that human breast milk does.
So how did they do this? Well, they inserted human genes into the
So those cows are now essentially part human and part cow.
Are you disturbed yet? You should be.
previous article, I detailed quite a few other examples of how
they are turning our animals into genetic monsters...
Scientists in Japan have created
a genetically modified mouse that
tweets like a bird.
One U.S. corporation can now
produce a very muscular "monster salmon" which can grow up
to three times as fast as normal salmon do.
In Japan, scientists have
discovered that they can grow rat organs inside of mice. The
researchers hope to use the same technology to
organs inside of pigs.
Scientists are even creating "spider
fluorescent cats now. And these are just the things that
they are admitting to publicly.
Can you imagine what kind of bizarre monsters are being created in
Sadly, now even human babies are being genetically modified.
Recently it was reported that scientists have created babies that
have three parents.
The following is from a recent
The world's first
genetically-modified humans have been created, it was revealed
The disclosure that 30 healthy babies were born after a series
of experiments in the United States provoked another furious
debate about ethics.
So far, two of the babies have been tested and have been found
to contain genes from three 'parents'.
Fifteen of the children were born in the past three years as a
result of one experimental program at the Institute for
Reproductive Medicine and Science of St Barnabas in New Jersey.
The babies were born to women who had problems conceiving. Extra
genes from a female donor were inserted into their eggs before
they were fertilized in an attempt to enable them to conceive.
Genetic fingerprint tests on two one-year- old children confirm
that they have inherited DNA from three adults --two women and
The fact that the children have inherited the extra genes and
incorporated them into their 'germ-line' means that they will,
in turn, be able to pass them on to their own offspring.
The implications of this are staggering.
Will those babies be allowed to reproduce someday?
If so, that genetic material will get into the general population,
and once that happens there will be no retrieving it.
But scientists are so excited that they are able to do some of these
things that they never stop to ask whether they should be doing
Scientists all over the globe have also been creating creatures that
are part-human and part-animal in an attempt to find cures for
previous article, I quoted a
article which discussed the "human-animal hybrid embryos" that are
secretly being created in British labs...
Scientists have created more than
150 human-animal hybrid embryos in British laboratories.
The hybrids have been produced secretively over the past three
years by researchers looking into possible cures for a wide
range of diseases.
The revelation comes just a day after a committee of scientists
warned of a nightmare ‘Planet of the Apes’ scenario in which
work on human-animal creations goes too far.
Who in the world decided that this would
be a good idea?
This kind of mixing of animals and humans is even happening in the
heartland of the United States.
The following is from an article posted
on MSNBC a number of years ago entitled "Scientists Create Animals
That Are Part-Human"...
On a farm about six miles outside
this gambling town, Jason Chamberlain looks over a flock of
about 50 smelly sheep, many of them possessing partially human
livers, hearts, brains and other organs.
What does being "part-human"
Is there something fundamental
that sets us apart from the animals?
If so, when is that line
It is absolutely amazing that more
people are not upset about this stuff.
That same MSNBC article described some of the other things that
scientists are doing with human genetic material...
In the past two years, scientists
have created pigs with human blood, fused rabbit eggs with human
DNA and injected human stem cells to make paralyzed mice walk.
Should science be able to do whatever it
wants to with human DNA?
Are we absolutely certain that all of these bizarre experiments will
never have any very serious unintended consequences?
Down in Missouri, scientists have been growing animals that are
pig and part human with the hope of being able to provide organs for
If you ever need an organ transplant, you might want to check where
the organ is coming from. If you are not careful, doctors might
implant an organ from a monster that is part-human and part-pig
inside of you.
Another very disturbing scientific movement that is gaining a lot of
momentum right now is
transhumanism. The idea is that humans can be
greatly "enhanced" using computers, microchips, nanobots,
"micro-machines", genetic engineering and other cutting edge
By merging humans and technology, those promoting transhumanism
believe that humans can become much stronger and much more
intelligent. They believe that aging, sickness, disease,
disabilities, physical suffering and even death can eventually be
But at some point would such "super humans" cease to be human?
And what would that mean for the rest of us?
These are very important questions.
Our world was created with incredible precision and with a natural
balance between "the birds and the bees and the flowers and the
trees". When we start messing with the basic building blocks of
life, we open up "Pandora's Box" and we might not like the
It is incredibly arrogant to think that we can turn our crops, our
animals and even our babies into freakish genetic monsters and that
everything will be just fine.
We are ripping nature to shreds and we are rapidly destroying the
environment that has been entrusted to us.
In the end, I am afraid that we will pay a great price for our
