Genetic Engineering (GE,GM,GMOs) is a nightmare technology that has already caused MANY disease epidemics -- documented but unpublicized. This is the 11th in a series revealing the epidemics, dealing here with so-called "mystery" diseases afflicting human health in this terrible -- and worsening -- GMO era.

Mystery Diseases: Human Health
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.

and even Western Europe. Planetary contamination is
inevitable, if We
don't stop it.
The Biotechnology corporations know oh-so-well how contamination

PATENTS on LIFE-FORMS.
these revolutionary Patents on Life, a farmer could have sued

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.

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.
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.
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)

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

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.
