Genetic Engineering (GE,GM,GMOs) is a nightmare technology that has already caused MANY disease epidemics -- documented but unpublicized. This is the 3rd in a series, dealing with a horrific artificial sweetener (by Monsanto) that infests 6,000 food products.

The Face of Frankenstein's Monster
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.

PATENTS on LIFE-FORMS.
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

Already, according to the Research Foundation for Science, Technology

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.

Corporate Proprietary Rights in the crops of victimised farmers, and

Aspartame has been linked to cancer, paralysis, blindness, diabetes,
cardiac arrest, not to mention death.
In the United States, where the New Mexico legislature is currently
discussing a proposal to ban Aspartame, the
neurotoxin is found in 6,000 products consumed by 70% of Americans.
A bill to ban aspartame is currently in the British Parliament also,
sponsored by Roger Williams MP.
In this sordid age of the crudest Money Politics, to have a legislature
go so far as to consider banning a tremendous moneymaker, well, that
product must be a science fiction-like horror. And Aspartame
The first paragraph may have given a somewhat jolting introduction to
Let's elaborate a bit.

The following is the virtual list released by the U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services back in 1994 of over 92 disease symptoms
associated with Aspartame consumption (and it's still on
the market in 2006 !!).

"death" -- they can get lost in such a list as we now put

publication by the peer-reviewed journal Environmental Health
Perspectives (EHP) of the U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services
(published November 2005), states that Aspartame is a

products, and CANCER is a world-class killer. Can anyone see

You see, the genetic engineering process is always liable to fabricate disease-inducing PATHOGENS.
And, independent of the Aspartame, all (non-organic) processed
foods (I can no longer find an exception) contain at least one GMO, and
often more than one.
Then genetically-engineered Aspartame enters what is already
a potentially bad compound, and you can get the dreaded "cocktail"
effect of poison interacting with other poisons.
Be that as it may, one conclusion ought to be obvious enough
concerning Aspartame and all genetically-engineered things--- We ban Them, or They ban Us !
By the way, people report that after they spotted the problem, and
eliminated this GM artificial sweetener from their diet, they
de-toxified and indeed got better. Victims of
insulin reported the same.

of what appears to be a combined Monsanto-Government cabal against her,
and soft-pedaling the GMO connection may have been the price she paid
to lead a hectic yet still liveable existence.
On the other hand, perhaps she simply feels that stressing the GMO
connection is not good strategy.
She refuses to answer me, so I kinda feel the former explanation rings

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

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

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
