Food-Induced Anaphylactic (Life-Threatening) ShockI.
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

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 !): ---

travelling human beings. Co-Existence with GM is
completely impossible, only fools or liars would say differently.

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.

Food-Induced Anaphylactic (Life-threatening) Shock Epidemics
GM StarLink Corn (Maize)
--- Thousands of Americans reported having suffered allergic reactions
to maize (corn) after a genetically-engineered maize fodder, StarLink,
entered the food supply. Reports included affliction of anaphylactic shock.
(Note: Independent scientists had warned that splicing
foreign proteins into common food products could cause life-threatening shock and even
following information should not be altogether surprising:
There have been approximately
30,000 cases of food-induced anaphylactic (life-threatening) shock each
year in the United States since genetically engineered food pervaded
the American food supply.
[Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, vol. 107, no. 1,
January 2001, pp. 191-3; Andrew Rowell, Don't Worry , It's Safe To Eat,
This 'unexplained' and
strikingly dramatic increase over previous times
can only be explained by GM ("Frankenstein") food and crops.

that Genetic Engineering is a nightmare technology which can and does
produce anaphylactic shock as one of its ugly and persistent
In the UK, where GM crops have not been grown commercially, the
incidence of food-induced anaphylactic
shock has jumped 560%
since American genetically engineered food has entered UK supermarkets
[UK figures drawn from data supplied by the Anaphylaxis Campaign,
re UK children: "The
director of the Royal Children's Hospital's allergy unit, Donald Hill,
said yesterday that hospitals needed to set up planning systems to cope
with what was being described as an allergy 'epidemic'.
The Royal Children's allergy unit has a six-month waiting list. . . . British research showed the number of
children with food-induced anaphylaxis had tripled in 10 years,
he said." (Rachel Kleinman, The Age, 20 July 05)
the percentage of emergency admissions to hospitals related to
food-induced anaphylactic shock has increased fivefold
in the last 10 years.
[Allergy Vigilance Network, University Hospital, Nancy, France]
This is becoming an international pattern. Food-induced
life-threatening shock now accounts for one-third to one-half of
all anaphylactic cases
treated in hospital emergency rooms
in Europe and Australia as well as in the United States.

seems to me that corporate influence over scientists and the media is
trying to make peanuts a scapegoat and red herring, diverting you from

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

corporate media's suppression and distortion of truth, one

And major efforts must be made to inform and activate university students.

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.

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
