Yet large-scale cultivation of genetically modified (GM) crops is still limited to six While biotechnology countries, with the vast majority of these crops grown for fibre, industrial corporations and agrofuels and animal feed, not for feeding people. No new beneficial traits of GM crops have been successfully some governments commercialised by the biotech industry, despite persistent assurances about the development of drought resistance2 and nitrogen fixation through to the continue to press for availability of enhanced nutrients and a reduced need for fertiliser.3 Most the more widespread "new" GM crops turn out to be existing herbicide-tolerant and insect- resistant gene traits stacked in a single modified crop. introduction of In fact, insect resistance and herbicide tolerance are the only two traits genetically modified that have been developed and cultivated on a large scale, purportedly to reduce pesticide usage. According to the International Service for the organisms into the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA), 99 per cent of commercially grown GM crops are still herbicide tolerant or insect resistant.4 environment and food In the European Union (EU), 43 out of 49 applications for GM cultivation are supply, opposition to for herbicide-tolerant or insect-resistant varieties.5 Fifteen out of 23 pending applications in the US are also for herbicide tolerance or insect resistance.6 GMOs is on the rise Creative Accounting worldwide and ISAAA annual reports tend to be overreliant on industry data, contain cultivation of GM inaccurate statistics and have few or unclear sources. They also cite their own chair, Clive James.7 ISAAA inflates its figures through double and triple crops is in decline in accounting by using its concept of "virtual hectares", which involves multiplying the actual surface area with the number of GM traits in crops. In many regions. this way, a field of one hectare in size, growing a GM crop that is tolerant to two herbicides and has an insect-resistant gene, counts as three hectares.8 Few GM Crops in Few Countries GM crop cultivation is confined to just a few countries around the world. Ninety-five per cent of GM crops are cultivated in the US, Brazil, Argentina, by Joseph Zacune et al. for India, Canada and China.

The introduction of the vaccine is indicated on each graph. • Measles The measles graph shows us that the five-yearly death rate, 100 years before the vaccine was introduced, was around the 170 mark.

At the close of the century, there were 50–70 cases of (not deaths from) typhoid fever each year in Australia.8 One last graph shows data for tetanus. This one didnt make it into Vaccination – A Parents Dilemma. Tetanus is not contagious and it is almost unheard of in children. The graph below is plotted from data kindly supplied by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare. 9 Please note that the graph covers all ages and, like the typhoid fever graph above, starts only in 1910 whereas the previous graphs commenced 40 years earlier. As we can see, there was no observable effect on the trend in deaths from the introductions of vaccines. There was simply a steady decline. Facing the Truth Before I continue, I would like to say a few words about reactions to these graphs. I presented similar graphs (minus tetanus) at my Human Rights Commission hearing. They were received with disinterest; in fact, dismissed as irrelevant and totally disregarded by the expert witnesses from the medical establishment and thus the Commissioner. When I subsequently published them in Vaccination – A Parents Dilemma, they were received with great interest by readers and were quickly spread around the world. If you search the Internet today, you will find numerous sites where the original graphs have been reproduced along with many for other countries. Why the vast disparity between the reactions? I can group the public reaction into two distinct types. The first, which has also been the most common, is shock or disbelief. These reactions are from those who find it difficult to believe what they are seeing. It is the same feeling I had when I first saw evidence of this—the experience of having a cherished belief pulled apart in front of your eyes.

THE HOL E IN THE HEART AND THE BLOOD-BRAIN BARRIER The Nature of the BBB and its Relationship to Chronic Illness ecent discoveries about the permeability of the once-thought- R impenetrable blood-brain barrier (BBB) may be involved in many brain and systemic diseases. These include stroke, migraine, Alzheimers disease, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory diseases, allergic disorders, Lyme disease, traumatic brain injury, hypertension, obesity and mental illnesses. Stress, heat, histamine, toxins, allergies, nutritional deficiencies, microwaves and a heart defect—which every third person unknowingly has—can cause permeability of this crucial barrier to our brains. Stroke is the second leading cause of death in Australia,1 and The blood-brain this hidden heart defect is now known to be a leading cause of stroke. barrier becomes Weve known about this barrier to perhaps our most precious entity—our brains—since 1885 when Paul Ehrlich, MD, discovered it.2 He found that permeable as a result upon injection of blue dyes into living animals, most organs were stained— but not the brain. Subsequent experiments demonstrated that dyes injected of stress, toxins, heat, into the brain did not stain any of the peripheral organs. Ehrlich and others EMF, nutritional would postulate that some type of barrier protects the brain from rapid or large influx of factors circulating in the blood.

But it wasnt until 1967 that electron illnesses. microscopy proved the existence of the BBB. The BBB is now known to consist of a continuous layer of endothelial cells that are joined by tight junctions with very high electrical resistance. These endothelial cells line the over 400 miles (644 kilometres) of cerebral capillaries in the brain. Their tight junctions impede influx of ions and molecules across the plasma membranes of the endothelial cells. Besides the physical barrier, a complex set of biochemical factors is also part of the BBB. Small fat-soluble (lipophilic) transport molecules can ordinarily cross the BBB. They transport glucose, choline and some amino acids. Nature intended for only a few things in the blood to get into the brain, as brain cells can so easily—and perhaps disastrously—be affected by many things circulating in the blood. Until recently, the blood-brain barrier was thought to be nearly by Steven Rochlitz, PhD © unalterable. Much research has now disproved this.

  • 43. A NEW MEC HANISM F OR MATT ER INCREASE WITHIN THE EARTH A ccording to Expansion Tectonics, geological data support the claim that the Earth has been gaining matter over geological time. The source of this new matter and the specific manner of how the Earth gains it remain a mystery which affects the viability of Expansion Tectonics. This article proposes a new mechanism for matter gain. In summary, based on the electric nature of our universe, it is suggested that this gain is primarily fed by solar particles that are transferred to the Earths interior by electron and proton conduction. It is argued that such a process is plausible and has support based on theoretical and empirical studies appearing in existing scientific literature. A plausible new Expansion Tectonics For over a century, many professional geologists have speculated on the argument suggests possibility that the Earth has undergone a steadily increasing expansion. In that, based on known the past 60 years, the two names most notable in this regard are Professor Samuel Warren Carey and his successor Dr James Maxlow, both geologists physical phenomena, from Australia. These and other scientists have arrived at the conclusion particles from the Sun that, based on sound empirical evidence, the observed geology of the Earth can only be explained if the Earth has been increasing its radius may account for substantially over a time period of several billion years. In the 1990s, Maxlow in his graduate research pursued the Earth expansion Earth expansion. hypothesis in much greater detail. Maxlow initiated his studies soon after the Commission for the Geological Map of the World and UNESCO had completed worldwide geological mapping of the surface of the Earth, both on land and under the oceans, assembling extensive ageing data of the entire crust. This mapping then formed the basis for Maxlows research. Maxlow determined that the Earth has undergone an exponential increase in radius since the beginning of Earth history some 4,000 million years ago. What this means is that, for over 90 per cent of its existence, the increase in Earth radius was much less than the thickness of a human hair per year, and then, about 200 million years ago, this rapidly increased to its present rate of 22 millimetres per year. By systematically taking away the area represented by the oceans and constructing progressively smaller-radius Earth models, Maxlow demonstrated that it is possible to reduce the Earths radius and fit all of the by John B. Eichler © 2011 present continents together at about 55 per cent of the current Earth radius at the beginning of the Jurassic Period some 200 million years ago.

RAISING A VACCINE FREE CHILD RAISING A VACCINE FREE CHILD by Wendy Lydall A well-referenced book which dispells many myths about vaccinations, including that the benefits are worth the risks, that without vaccinations there would be epidemics, and that vaccines are scientifically and clinically tested for their safety and effectiveness. Lydall exposes the sham studies designed to cover up the vaccine connection to SIDS (cot death); and shows that homoeopathic vaccines are bringing an alien vibration into the body, and are not necessarily safe. Lydall also has information about the denial and/or dishonesty of some health care providers, medical bureaucrats, vaccine manufacturers and high-level officials on vaccine safety issues.

  • 55. WHO WROTE THE RE PTILIAN AGENDA? THE ORIGIN OF THE ANUNNAKI SCRIPT A collectors edition entitled "Secrets of the Da Vinci Code", published by U.S. News & World Report, features a brief interview with James Robinson, general editor of The Nag Hammadi Library in English. Correcting Da Vinci Code author Dan Brown’s reference to the Nag Hammadi texts as scrolls, Robinson points out that they are codices—"books with individual pages". "They are actually the oldest examples we have of leather-bound books," he said. Amazingly, whatever the significance of their content—and we have yet to comprehend what that might be—the Nag Hammadi Codices (NHC) are the The Nag Hammadi earliest surviving examples of bound books. Close reading of these arcane materials shows that the Gnostics, as teachers in the ancient Mysteries were Codices and the called, were deeply concerned with an alien intrusion upon humankind. Mesopotamian Entities that they called Archons appear to be identical to the extraterrestrials (ETs) of modern ufology. The codices indicate both reptilian cuneiform tablets and "Grey" types: a drakonic type, and a neonate type suggested by the image of a prematurely born foetus. The former are the overlords; the latter, servile both tell of alien robotic drones who obey a hive mentality. The NHC do not contain graphic intervention with physical descriptions of these alien intruders, but present ample information to profile them comparatively with the two types of ETs most widely humanity. discussed today. Alien Profile Perhaps one-fifth of the intelligible material in the NHC concerns the origin, methods and motives of the Archons, also called "authorities, governors". Their name derives from the Greek arche, "first, from the beginning", because, according to Gnostic cosmology, they emerged at an early stage of the solar system previous to the formation of the Earth. These bizarre entities may be regarded as a locust-like species of cyborgs with silicon-based bodies so designed to permit only brief forays into the Earths oxygen-rich atmosphere. They inhabit the solar system at large, travelling among the planets in alien-engineered spacecraft. Gnostic texts hint that they may be compared to custodial engineers of the inanimate clockwork mechanism of the system. Some, but not all, UFO sightings and abductions by John Lash © 2010 may be attributed to them.
