In one of the most important votes of 2012, Californians will vote on whether to force food producers to label GMO products. The industry keeps telling us that it’s not necessary but shouldn’t consumers know what they are purchasing? If it’s not a problem, as the industry keeps telling us, then let them sell the idea and win over customers
Nearly every day, the mainstream media dispenses new articles reinforcing the idea that humans are infesting the earth, overpopulating it like parasites and sucking it dry of resources. The magic number — 7 billion — is thrown at us like an accusation and a curse, as if the mere fact this many people are now living on the planet is an automatic death sentence for the world and everything on it.
Drones are well-known for their ability to hunt down suspected terrorists abroad, but they have also increasingly become a popular tool of police departments around the country.
Switzerland and Italy have banned the sales of Novartis’ flu vaccines – Agrippal and Fluad – after being told by the pharmaceutical company that the shots had an accumulation of “particles”. Novartis assures that its flu shots are still safe.
The groundbreaking research findings presented at the International Meeting for Autism Research (IMFAR) in London, England, have revealed that young macaque monkeys given the typical CDC-recommended vaccination schedule from the 1990s, and in appropriate doses for the monkeys’ sizes and ages, tended to develop autism symptoms. Their unvaccinated counterparts, on the other hand, developed no such symptoms.
The British National Health Service (NHS) — the epitome of socialized medicine — may be prematurely ending the lives of as many as 130,000 elderly patients annually, a top physician told the Royal Society of Medicine in London.
The American Medical Association (AMA) recently published a paper proposing the introduction of a new law to force you and your children into experimental vaccine trials against your wishes. Your only way out of this directive would be to sign an ‘opt out form.’
You could read about drones, the aerial delivery of rabies bait, and pesticide spraying and learn something new with every article. I’ve explored the current technology because the information is relevant to the aerial spraying of vaccines.
“Adverse events reported during post-approval use of Tripedia vaccine include idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, SIDS [Sudden Infant Death Syndrome], anaphylactic reaction, cellulitis, autism, convulsion/grand mal convulsion, encephalopathy, hypotonia, neuropathy, somnolence and apnea.”
According to some professionals, vaccines may be causing the diseases that they claim to prevent. Christina England, a British journalist and author, is a regular contributor to http://Vactruth.com and also writes for the American Chronicle, the Weekly Blitz, and Namaste Publishing UK.
“Hepatitis B is not airborne. It is contracted through sex, use of drug needles and blood transfusions. Unless you or your baby is involved in any of these, vaccination is not necessary for your child.”
A vaccine supplied by GlaxoSmithKline Australia and given to babies in their first six months of life has been recalled in Australia because of concerns over bacteria found at its manufacturing site in Belgium. Bacillus cereus, the bacteria found in the factory, is generally found in food and soil.
Some health workers in Switzerland are refusing to get vaccinated against current influenza strains and are hesitant to offer the vaccine to patients. A study led by Geneva’s teaching hospitals last year showed that many health care personnel thought of seasonal flu as “a benign disease not really requiring any special [prevention] effort.”
You probably think about influenza once a year — during the winter months when flu season rolls in as it does every year. But, for FDA, it’s a year-round initiative; we are on the front lines of making sure there is an adequate supply of safe and effective vaccine every year. And even though the current flu season is just getting started, we are already making preparations for next year.
You don’t have to look far to find grapples, pluots, tangelos or lematoes these days. These genetically modified organisms are foods that have been scientifically engineered in laboratories to enhance certain traits.
The inventory below lists all completed consultations on bioengineered foods evaluated under FDA’s 1992 Statement of Policy: Foods Derived from New Plant Varieties. More information about this inventory is available HERE ……..
Unmanned systems increase our human potential. They enable us to execute dangerous and difficult tasks safely and efficiently, saving time, saving money and, most importantly, saving lives.
It took three elections to get fluoridation approved in Boulder. At one point there were so many letters to the editor, both for and against, that the Daily Camera called for a moratorium.
Foods containing genetically modified ingredients from GMOs are very common. Based on a report by the American Medical Association, about 70 percent of processed foods sold in the U.S. contain ingredients derived from these transgenic crops.
Though surveys show that more than 90 percent of Americans believe that the government should require labeling of genetically modified foods, a ballot initiative in California that would do just that is losing support—fast.
The concern over eating genetically-modified foods is growing as more people learn about the harmful effects of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs). Although not readily publicized by the mainstream media, GMOs have been linked to various health complications such as tumors, organ failure, DNA damage, immune system disturbances, and infertility, among others.
Nobody outside California can vote on Proposition 37, a ballot initiative that would require labels for many types of food that contain genetically modified (GM) ingredients. If it passes, however, Proposition 37 will hurt global efforts to improve food production through modern technology
Check your pantry. Do you have any cereals, crackers, cookies, snack bars, soy milk or baby formula in there? How about anything with corn syrup or processed food made from corn on your shelves? If so, you are probably eating food containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
Over the past 10 years, U.S. spending on dozens of drone-related projects has increased exponentially, from US$350 million in 2001 to $4.1 billion in 2011. According to a recent study by the Teal Group Corporation, a team of aerospace and defence analysts, this trend is likely to continue as annual worldwide spending on drone technology balloons to $11.4 billion by the end of the decade.
U.S. Air Force policy permits the incidental collection of domestic imagery by unmanned aerial systems (drones), but ordinarily would not allow targeted surveillance of a U.S. person. The Air Force policy was restated in a newly reissued instruction on oversight of Air Force intelligence.
NorthPeak, Epsilia unveil RFID-enabled solution to improve cold-chain performance; Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies, TagMaster NA combine long-read-range and smart-card technologies; London’s Portland Hospital implements patient security solutions from Stanley Healthcare; NXP delivers NFC to Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 devices.
Because of technological advances, we must spell out what used to be taken for granted. The law, for instance, can be a powerful tool, giving explicit guidance and instilling relatively widespread compliance. What it can’t do is guarantee our information is 100 percent protected.
Experts from across the United States gathered recently to share their insights with Mississippi’s growing group of commercial and hobby beekeepers at a conference held at Mississippi State University.
In an exercise done in conjuneciton with the Department of Homeland Security at White Sands, New Mexico, they were even able to make the drone land.
Humphreys told CBS News, “You can think of this as hijacking a plane from a distance. (It’s) as if you’re at the controls of the plane, because you’ve now captured the autopilot’s sense of its own navigation solution. And you can manipulate it left or right, up or down.”
