Jon Rappoport – New Vaccines Will Permanently Alter Human DNA

Why is the government so maniacal about injecting vaccines? Consider this article in light of the accelerating push to mandate and enforce vaccination across the planet. The reference is the New York Times, 3/15/15, “Protection Without a Vaccine.” It describes the frontier of research. Here are key quotes that illustrate the use of synthetic genes to “protect against disease,” while changing …

Steven Hoffman – GMO Mushroom Waved Through by USDA, Potentially Opening Floodgates for Wave of Frankenfoods

Repeat after me: Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats That’s CRISPR, a new GE technology that uses an enzyme, Cas9, to cut, edit or remove genes from targeted region of a plant’s DNA. Because it doesn’t involve transgenics, i.e. inserting genes from foreign species into an animal or plant, foods produced in this manner just received a free pass from …

JONATHAN LATHAM – God’s Red Pencil? CRISPR and The Three Myths of Precise Genome Editing

For the benefit of those parts of the world where public acceptance of biotechnology is incomplete, a public relations blitz is at full tilt. It concerns an emerging set of methods for altering the DNA of living organisms. “Easy DNA Editing Will Remake the World. Buckle Up“; “We Have the Technology to Destroy All Zika Mosquitoes“; and “CRISPR: gene editing …

Graham Vanbergen – TTIP – current EU GMO rules to be ‘disregarded’ as EU Commission caves in to US pressure

A joint report conducted by Greenpeace, Corporate Europe Observatory and Gene Watch UK issued a briefing paper last week entitled “Commission fails to regulate new GMOs after intense US lobbying.” In essence, the European Commission has effectively deserted its principles when it comes to GMO’s entering the food chain within the 28 nation bloc. Intense lobbying by United States representatives …

The Dangers of Human Gene Editing – Ulson Gunnar

It is often said that if it can be imagined, it will inevitably be done. And such a sentiment could not be any truer in terms of applying genetic engineering and synthetic biology to the genomes of our planet’s organisms including humans themselves. While the process of synthesizing and arranging genetic code has many processes, perhaps none has been as …

GMH: Genetically Modified Humans?

In addition to the ethical questions and the serious unintended health consequences, this would also open the door to patenting human DNA. Action Alert! Late last month, a group of Chinese scientists published a study that tried to answer the question, “Is it possible to edit the genetic makeup of human embryos?” It’s a question that has occupied scientists and medical researchers for …

World’s first genetically modified human embryo raises ethical concern – by Hannah Brown

The genetic modification of humans make many people feel very uncomfortable. Credit: Tatiana Vdb/Manuel/Flickr, CC BY It all started with a rumour. Then just six weeks ago, a warning rang out in the scientific journal Nature, expressing “grave concerns regarding the ethical and safety implications” of creating the world’s first genetically-modified human embryo. Then last week, a Chinese group from Sun Yat-sen …

Extinct frog resurrected with ‘de-extinction’ technology

An Australian science project to resurrect an extinct frog species has been named one of the world’s best inventions. The Lazarus Project centres on a genome technology developed by researchers from the University of Newcastle. It was included in Time magazine’s 25 Best Inventions of the Year 2013 list because it has been successfully used to bring back to life …

Monsanto Is About To Escape All Regulation From The USDA

What’s an intentional mutation? Nothing more than a fancy technological phrase which describes a new way that biotech is getting around regulatory approval for genetically modified crops. Scientists have already created ‘designer monkeys’ by orchestrating precise genetic mutations. The same technology used to achieve this feat more than ten years ago is now being used by companies like Scott’s (of famed and failed GMO …
