GMO Disease Epidemics: (2) Hepatitis B Vaccine

by Myron (Mike) Stagman, PhD Tuesday, Jul. 25, 2006 at 7:02 AM

Genetic Engineering has already caused many DISEASE EPIDEMICS -- documented but unpublicized. This is the 2nd in a series revealing the epidemics. Note that GM medicine has been almost totally ignored by environmentalists. Do read and take heed. -- it may save your health or life.

GMO DISEASE EPIDEMICS:
 (2)  Hepatitis B Vaccine



I.  The Face of Frankenstein's Monster

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

They want to destroy small family farming, and have only gigantic Corporate GM Plantations with farmers working as serfs.
 
[This process is underway, especially in
South America where the U.S. Military has begun to intervene on behalf of GM Plantations to crush farmer opposition.]

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

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

We MUST OUTLAW GM and PATENTS on LIFE-FORMS -- or else !! 

(e.g. No more organic, healthy food --- you and your children will only be able to eat unsafe GM) 

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

II.
  The Horror of Genetically-Engineered Medicine and the GM Hepatitis B Vaccine Epidemic


(a)  Genetically engineered medicine and vaccines
are extremely dangerous and should be outlawed.  GM medicine/vaccines are entirely unnecessary as well, and insult the Hippocratic Oath.  

[Comment: 
The Drug Corporations would drop genetically-engineered drugs like a hot potato were it not for the abusive Patent laws (awarding monopolies), especially Patents on Life-Forms, and the corruption of Government which insulates the corporations from serious liability.]

- - - - - - - - - -

(b) Item:  
 
London, March 2006 --- Six healthy male volunteers  were given an experimental drug manufactured by a German biotechnology company, TeGenero.   The drug, supposedly intended as an "immune stimulant", was genetically engineered.
    
It came as little surprise to this observer when it was announced that all 6 men suffered multiple organ failure and nearly died, and that one of them may remain in a coma for a year or more.
    
One of the 6 victims said he felt like his brain was "on fire".  "I thought my eyeballs were going to pop out."
    
Either this victim or another has been nicknamed "the Elephant Man', because his head swelled out to three times its normal size !!


It was also unsurprising that the BBC, International Herald Tribune (New York Times), etc., apparently suppressed the fact that the drug was genetically engineered. (Could they conceivably be accused of ignorance? Surely not possible.)

["Calamitous GM Drug Trial Raises Questions About Modern Science",  GM Watch, Weekly Watch 170, 6 April 2006;  "A drug trial catastrophe", Prof. Joe Cummins, Ban-GEF online newsletter, 19 March 06; "Victims' agony as 'Elephant Man' drugs firm goes bust",  Neil Sears, Daily Mail, 4 July 2006]

- - - - - - - - - - -

(c)   The Hepatitus B vaccine was
genetically engineered.    On account of this vaccine, during the 1990s  there were, in the
USA alone, more than 17,000  cases of hospitalisations, injuries and deaths, including the deaths of 72 children, reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) of the U.S. government.
    [
[Dr. Philip Incao's testimony to the Health Committee of the Ohio House of Representatives, 1 March 1999]

Note:  a former FDA (U.S. government Food and Drug Administration) Commissioner wrote in 1993 in the prestigious medical journal, JAMA, that a study showed "only about 1 percent of serious events attributable to drug reactions are reported to the FDA".

USA Question:  Are serious events attributable to vaccines better reported to VAERS?

UK Question:  Is the MMR vaccine genetically engineered?    If it is, one can readily understand why AUTISM might conceivably be linked to it.

- - - - - - - - - - -

(d)  Labelling,  Identification and GM Causation of Diseases


GM drugs are generally (entirely?) unlabelled.  This alone is outrageous.

If you want to have a little fun, ask your doctor if the drug he/she is prescribing happens to be genetically engineered.  Doctors do not like being asked important questions for which they have not the foggiest notion of an answer.

In the last two decades, any drug that has been associated with particularly nasty adverse reactions, should have been analysed (and its patent searched)
for possible GMO content and GM causation of those adverse reactions.

This of course has not been done. (neverprobably Never.  Ordinary scientists, who are pretty uniformly on 'Their side' -- they wouldn't dare.  And 'Our side' is not bright enough to have thought of it. )

Recommendation:  Start doing it now.

(e)  Extremely Important Fact"
The third largest cause of death and illness in the [western] world is medical intervention [essentially, prescribed drugs]." --- Paul Flynn MP,  House of Commons Health Select Committee report on "The Influence of the Pharmaceutical Industry", April 2005, vol. 2, p. 153

Only cancer and heart disease are bigger killers than prescribed drugs. As for heart disease,  mark that
the arthritis pain reliever, Vioxx, caused an estimated 140,000 heart attacks and up to 55,000 deaths in the
USA alone. 
     
[ Dr. David J. Graham, former associate safety director of the FDA; and see "Intimidation, Politics and Drug Industry Cripple U.S. Medicine", Ritt Goldstein, Inter Press Service,  31 December 2004 ]

  Question:  Is Vioxx genetically engineered? 
Will anyone ever do an analysis or search the patent for that information??

Indeed, in the United States (can Europe be any different?) prescribed drugs are surely the leading cause of death and illness, at least equal to cancer and heart disease combined, and quite possibly a multiple of this. 

[see "Modern Health Care System is the Leading Cause of Death", Gary Null PhD, Carolyn Dean MD ND, Martin Feldman MD, et al,  www.mercola.com]

- - - - - - - - - -

(f)  How many drugs are now genetically engineered?

8% of total global pharmaceutical market sales are accounted for by genetically engineered  drugs.

[Memorandum by the BioIndustry Association (PI 147), "The Influence of the Pharmaceutical Industry"]

Worse, one-third of all drugs in development are biologics !

[It is unclear whether the Memorandum refers to the
UK only, or the Western drug corporations in general.  I think the latter.]

This ought to frighten anyone who thinks he or she may ever again see a doctor or hospital.

III.
  Conclusion and What To Do

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

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


How To Do It?

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

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


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

Important Hints: 

(1)   Concentrate on  university
students

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

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

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

Never ever join them.  Never ever give them Money. 
 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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


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


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


Take appropriate Direct Action.



Good Luck to You.


P.S.  For a detailed Action Plan on conducting education/activation campaigns (e.g. composing A4 leaflets for distribution, lobbying your legislative representative) see "Creating a Grassroots Democracy While Outlawing Genetic Engineering" (or a similar title) on several current Indymedia websites (e.g. Biotech, UK, Los Angeles and San Francisco).  Or email me and request it.
