Groundbreaking New Study Links GMO to Leukemia: When Will Monsanto Stop Lying to Us?

gmofruit1 263x164 Groundbreaking New Study Links GMO to Leukemia: When Will Monsanto Stop Lying to Us?There are lots of ‘scientists,’ otherwise known as the academics on Monsanto’s payroll, who keep spouting the preposterous statement that there is no real science to back up the claims that GMO are bad for our health, but yet another study says otherwise.

Recently published in the Journal of Hematology & Thromboembolic Diseases, the study underscores the potential ‘leukemogenic’ properties of the Bt toxin biopesticides used in almost all GMO foods that are currently planted on more than 3.9 million acres of crops in the US. Many of these crops are shipped to other countries who have not yet banned GM foods from their imports, so the prevalence of their use on US soil affects the whole planet.

Just a few months ago, references to GMO were made by scientists in France who conducted a study that pinpointed Monsanto’s genetically engineered corn, called NK603, as a major cancer-causing agent. Rats developed cancerous tumors the size of ping-pong balls. The study was called into question; however by academics under Monsanto’s reign.

Now, the study states that the biopesticides engineered into crops like corn, soy, sugar cane, etc. carry what is known as Bacillus Thuringiensis (Bt), also called Cry-toxins, which contribute to all sorts of health problems including:

  • Blood abnormalities
  • Hematological malignancies (blood cancers), i.e. leukemia
  • Suppression of bone marrow proliferation
  • Abnormal lymphocyte patterns

Furthermore, Bt toxins used in prevalent GMOs can target mammalian cells, particularly of the erythroid lineage (red blood cells) which results in damage to the cells that is significant enough to start as anemia, and end up as cancer. Also, Cry toxins were found to be capable of exerting their damaging effects even when suspended in distilled water, and did not require alkalinization through an insect’s physiological form to become activated. Put simply, this means that while Cry toxins may have been developed to kill bugs, they kill us.

How can these studies keep being denied? Scientist Michael Spector recently gave a profound Ted Talks speech about the danger of scientists denying the problems with GMO food. Another scientist, Dr. Theirry Vrain also gives a TED Talks lecture on the true damage that GMOs can do, even though they were once looked to as a positive, viable option to increase world food supply. Monsanto-funded studies, however, continue to spew ‘science’ about the benign nature of GMOs. When will this corporation stop lying to the masses?

Maybe this is why the World Health Organization still says GMOs are completely safe:

“GM foods currently available on the international market have passed risk assessments and are not likely to present risks for human health. In addition, no effects on human health have been shown as a result of the consumption of such foods by the general population in the countries where they have been approved. Continuous use of risk assessments based on the Codex principles and, where appropriate, including post market monitoring, should form the basis for evaluating the safety of GM foods.”

    The GMO crops themselves are not dangerous! Gods, it’s like people can’t get it through their heads that the glyphosate weed killer (roundup) in combination with GMO corn and other crops is actually keeping farmers from losing 1/3 of their crops to weeds. it’s giving us a damn chance to feed the entire world, no issues; instead of realising that, we have these “Natural Conspiracy” sites that link to un-repeatable, flawed or outright non-existent studies. It’s like no one listens to real science anymore! This doesn’t even have a scientific peer-reviewed journal in the source. C’mon, people. I’ve been studying biochemistry for years, GMO foods are not toxic. They offer a chance. The only possible issue that is presented is that Monsato has expensive business practices and that’s due to having to pay scientists to develop the gene variant, continue studies using appropriate samples, and apply it on a large scale to cash crops. What GMOs are doing is what nature did for years: it’s helping plants evolve to survive better in less-than-perfect conditions.

      Plus, the bacterium listed (Bacillus Thuringiensis) is an insecticide that has no real adverse effects. It has been proven to not even harm bees or butterflies. It’s an endotoxin insecticide that is used because it kills harmful pests that eat the plant by overloading their tiny bodies with bacteria. It’s like giving insects an infection. (Just wash your food, you’ll be fine). It’s been used since the 90′s and anything, in large enough amounts, can poison a human. Even sugar or water. Don’t pay heed to these foreign, un-repeatable studies that don’t even tell you that the “CRY”-Toxin (whatever that is, it’s not a scientific name for it, I’ve never even heard of it) is contributing (read: not causing) these blood abnormalities, when they don’t even say what the procedure was. Did they add this bacteria to blood samples in a petri dish? use rodents? were the rodents pre-disposed to leukemia? did they even check to see if the blood was healthy beforehand? There’s no actual information.

    How long does it take people to realize that "we the people" have become objects of genocide? The corrupt want to get the population down so they can take over the world and everything we own. It is called "the New World Order". Slavery is the plan! Farfetched? It should be but it isn't. It is happening right now in front of our eyes. You must be vigilant . The conspirators will call YOU a conspiracy theorist. The evil and corrupt NEVER tell the truth while they are calling the truthful, liars. Don't take vaccines and don't eat GMOs! And don't believe anything that comes from chemical companies, pharmaceutical companies, or the medical establishment. If you believe that the government protects you by the FDA, EPA, and the USDA then you and your children are an easy target! Evil reigns! Don't believe anything you read or are told. You must research and learn for yourselves.

    How about lock them all up for crimes against humanity.Then let them spend the rest of their days in confinement being fed their own toxic garbage 3 times a day.

    Always know we are told to vote is to be free , No that is not true in today's world A little less talk and a little more action on the part of we the people to forget about the elite and cooperation's .All you are to them is a money source to grown richer and more powerful They will to tell you anything .Expect the opposite of what they tell you, figure out how to survive with out them stay home if you can ,get off their grid use other ways to get around many things you can do to cut them down a bit but it will take many to eventually bring them down a few notches .A new look at what you really need to exist not made in China or other countries . They already have most of the Us jobs so don't support them .make what you can your own self and come together to help others do the same We have to form a new "We the People " in order to be able to exist in a corrupt greedy world where everything has a price or is for sale including you . Ants, & other living things still exist with out jobs with out many things we only think we need , have more junk probably than most of the world ,we are like hamsters running in a wheel and getting no where. Ant work all the time these tiny creatures seem to survive beyond most humans and in spite of humans trying to get rid of them & they seem to be able to be most everywhere maybe we need to learn from the tiny insects that's seems to be all we are to this government ,pests as long as greed exceeds need they will still need to control us anyway they can to a quire as much as they can .Stop feeding the beast learn to feed yourselves , & survive become the fit not the sick

    Michael Spector actually says the exact opposite thing in the video you've posted.

    • Aquifer


      You’re right – this guy Spector is a GMO fan, not opponent …. I wouldn’t use him as a critic …

    • Aquifer


      You’re right, Spector is a fan, not an opponent, of GMOs. The talk by Dr. Vrain is excellent, however ….

    • David L Foster

      Absolutely correct, listen to it! He is a super apologist for big industry science.

  • CAWS

    Don't forget they also own large shares in Big Pharma so they are creating patients which will make them even more money while they slow kill us.

    MonSatan should be made to cover EVERY AMERICANS INSURANCE!
    Their evil empire should PAY the Billions for Healthcare in the US and Worldwide where their poisons are killing people.
    Nature did not intend for this and it is VERY sad that these money hungry mogels are perpetuating thier cure all hunger theories to feed the world. Yes… It will cure hunger by killing the populations off. A very dubious way of killing without the aftershock of germ warfare or bombs. How cunningly and deceptive thier motives.
    These corporations need to stop and people really need to back our right to food, along with a lot of other amenities that are sadly and smuggly being taken away from our Constitution of "We the People".
