New scientific discovery
reveals DNA manipulation
can create mutations
due to ignorance
of gene control mechanism.
There was a time when science dictated
that the world was flat, and that if you reached the edge, you would
simply fall off. What they couldnít see, they proposed to be
Well, weíve come a long way since then,
but the arrogance remains.
In the biotech sector, what they donít
see simply does not exist, and what they claim does not exist may be
responsible for a myriad of diseases we are experiencing today.
A research team led by Dr. John
Stamatoyannopoulos, University of Washington associate
professor of genome sciences and of medicine, made the
The findings are reported in the
Dec. 13 issue of Science 'The
Hidden Codes that Shape Protein Evolution'.
Since the genetic code was
deciphered in the 1960s, scientists have assumed that it was
used exclusively to write information about proteins. UW
scientists were stunned to discover that genomes use the genetic
code to write two separate languages. One describes how proteins
are made, and the other instructs the cell on how genes are
One language is written on top of
the other, which is why the second language remained hidden for
"For over 40 years we have
assumed that DNA changes affecting the genetic code solely
impact how proteins are made," said Stamatoyannopoulos.
"Now we know that this basic
assumption about reading the human genome missed half of the
picture. These new findings highlight that DNA is an
incredibly powerful information storage device, which nature
has fully exploited in unexpected ways."
"The fact that the genetic code
can simultaneously write two kinds of information means that
many DNA changes that appear to alter protein sequences may
actually cause disease by disrupting gene control programs
or even both mechanisms simultaneously," said
Scientists Discover Double Meaning in
Biotech proponents routinely denigrate
opponents as flatworlders, Luddites, and against science.
Let me ask a question.
If Monsanto and the biotech industry
are working on the outdated theory that,
"DNA changes affecting the
genetic code solely impact how proteins are made,"
...and completely ignore half of the
picture and newly released scientific findings that,
"the genetic code can
simultaneously write two kinds of information, [which] means
that many DNA changes that appear to alter protein sequences
may actually cause disease by disrupting gene control
programs or even both mechanisms simultaneously,"
...what does that say about the
pseudo-science that says genetically engineered organisms (GMOs)
are perfectly safe in our food supply?
Promoting this specious ideology
displays a total disregard of the whole scientific process, and the
ramifications of DNA manipulation,
which make Monsanto and the biotech
industry the ultimate irresponsible flatworlders.
Professor Joe Cummins has this to
say regarding this new information and mutations in the resulting
crops produced by criminally irresponsible DNA manipulation:
The paper should put a nail in
the coffin of
My last article in ISIS pointed out
that all of the commercial GM crops contain bacterial genes that
have to have the code altered so that they produce in plants.
However, when the crops were
approved by USDA they did the safety tests on the gene product
proteins made in bacteria not the crops because the proteins
were easier to purify from bacterial cultures.
My article pointed out that the GM
crop transgenes had what is called
synonymous mutations so that
the amino acids chains were the same in bacteria and crop but
the mutations made the proteins fold differently in the
transgenic proteins and that kind of defect was known to have
caused defects in humans and animals.
The science paper is thrilling
because it points out that the synonymous mutations should cause
the GM proteins to be different from the bacterial proteins thus
the regulators never required adequate safety testing of the GM
You canít have it both ways.
You canít accuse those who are against
the irresponsible use of a newly emerging technology of being
against science, when you yourself ignore the inconvenient
scientific facts that show that what you are doing is hazardous.
You canít simply pick and choose what
you are going to believe because it just happens to be convenient
and fill the coffers of your ever-expanding bank account.
What you choose to ignore CAN hurt us.
The only acceptable response to this new
information is to stop the genetic engineering of our food supply
Completely, and without exception...
