I was writing a rebuttal to Dr Grum’s article “The Case for GMOs” @Ethiobserver . But I have to break my silence as some people, out of their utter ignorance, are relentlessly making ad hominem attacks on #GMO opponents. #Ethiopia
You can search “@kebyes GMO” so that you will learn how enthusiastic I am about the issue. Unlike others who are bashing every opinion/evidence, I like to ask questions first. That is how you learn. So please ask before resorting to attacks, PEOPLE. #Ethiopia

March 17 2020: "#Gates has proved there is a far easier path to political power, one that allows unelected billionaires to shape public policy in ways that almost always generate favorable headlines: #charity."
"Describing his approach by turns as "creative capitalism" and “catalytic philanthropy," Gates oversaw a shift at his foundation to leverage "all the tools of #capitalism" to "connect the promise of #philanthropy with the power of private enterprise."

#Microsoft #Pharma
The #Gates Foundation has made over the last two decades, ...close to $2 billion in tax-deductible charitable donations to private companies—including some of the largest businesses in the world, such as #GlaxoSmithKline, #Unilever, #IBM, & #NBC Universal #Media."

The leaders of this movement advocate tyrannical World Government and mass depopulation. This is illustrated by a chilling document written by the UN magnate Maurice Strong, an agent of Edmund de Rothschild, that was taken from the conference Hunt attended.
From a report in the 1976 UN’s “HABITAT 1” conference, “Land cannot be treated as an ordinary asset controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures of the inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration

Es gibt nur eine Erde, eine Menschheit, und es gibt viele mögliche Wege für die Gegenwart und in die Zukunft.
Gerade in Zeiten der großen Umbrüche öffnen sich viele Türen, klammert sich das herrschende System mit allen Mitteln der Repression &der Propaganda an die Macht.
Wer die Klimakrise ernst nimmt, fordert, dass sich die Menschheit proaktiv auf mögliche auch nicht menschengemachte Klimaveränderungen einstellt statt Ultrareiche&deren Kriege zu finanzieren, so dass alle Menschen in Zukunft menschenwürdig überleben&leben können #FridaysForFuture
Wer die Coronakrise ernst nimmt, fordert, dass sich die Menschheit vom Kapitalismus befreit und ihren gesamten geliehenen Reichtum mit allem Leben teilt und eine herrschaftsfreie Gesellschaft der größtmöglichen Teilhabe, Freiheit und Vielfalt für alles Leben anstrebt.

Petit thread sur un sujet à la mode : le riz doré. Cet OGM qui va sauver, parait-il, des millions de vies.

1/13 Tout d'abord, les carences en vitamines A sont un problème artificiel. Car les caroténoïdes (leurs précurseurs) sont omniprésents dans la nature. Ce sont des pigments de la photosynthèse qui améliorent l'efficacité de la chlorophylle.
2/13 Les sources naturelles de vitamines A ne se limitent donc pas aux carottes, potirons, abricots, mangues, etc. Tous les légumes verts, contiennent des caroténoïdes en quantités suffisantes. Mais aussi certaines huiles sont tres riches en caroténoïdes (l'huile de palme, etc).

Whoa!

Haitao Xiang, a #China National who worked as an Imaging Scientist for #Monsanto and its subsidiary, The Climate Corporation, was indicted for economic espionage.
He was also charged with trade secret theft and conspiracy to steal trade secrets, so there were more people involved. Probably the CCP/China.
Monsanto and the Climate Corporation created software used by farmers to help them with agricultural data & improve productivity. They used a porporitary algorithm called “Nutrient Optimizer” which was part of their IP and a very valuable trade secret.

#Monsanto pleaded guilty to illegally spraying banned pesticide Penncap-M on research crops and corn seed at one of its facilities in Maui, Hawaii.

#ButNothingsHappening
They used the pesticide after they knew it was banned and made their employees enter the sprayed fields after 7 days, even though they knew workers should have been prohibited from the area for at least 31 days after spraying.
They entered into a deferred prosecution agreement for two years and must pay $10 million in fines.

@ZeMax__lib Thread intéressant à lire mais qui oublie certains passage je trouve : 1) Concernant les agences de santé qui disent que les pesticides (le glyphosate j'imagine) sont sans danger, il ne faudrait pas oublier le CIRC (organisme de l'OMS) qui a classé le glyphosate en 2A
@ZeMax__lib 2) Concernant l'avis des agences de santé, il est basé sur les études publiées par la communauté scientifique, sauf qu'entre temps les #monsanto papers ont révélés certaines pratiques (ghost writing, publication par des consultant de monsanto...) qui jettent le doute...
@ZeMax__lib 3) Toujours coté santé, on a la problématique de l'effet cocktail : un pesticide en dessous des seuils on sait ce que ça fait à la santé, 20/30/40... mélangés ensemble dans un corps humain on a déjà beaucoup plus de mal à savoir

1/4 Researcher Selim Cetiner of @sabanciu in Turkey sure seems flipped out that @GMWatch ran this clip by @corinnelepage defending Seralini's research finding harm from GMO corn.

Cetiner complains it undermines his discussions w/ reporters.

Email here: documentcloud.org/documents/6382…
@sabanciu @GMWatch @corinnelepage 2/4 Selim Cetiner email goes to the AgBioChatter list for help in attack @corinnelepage who defended the Seralini study finding harm from #GMO corn.

See LePage piece posted at @GMWatch in English, here: gmwatch.org/en/latest-list…

At the time, LePage was MEP repping 450 million
@sabanciu @GMWatch @corinnelepage 3/4 Like magic, Selim Cetiner email to AgBioChatter is forwarded to . . . . #Monsanto

SURPRISE!!!

#Monsanto execs then get to work, apparently to hand off #GMO info to Cetiner so he can undermine LePage.

"This is urgent," Sachs writes.

L'@AN_OPECST a publié un rapport 📝 éclairant, pédagogue et précis sur l'évaluation des risques par les agences sanitaires. #glyphosate
🔴 Il montre aussi, selon moi, des éléments souvent ignorés ou causés par la com. MALHONNETE de certaines associations écolo.
💠 Notamment ⤵️
⚠️ La distinction RISQUE vs DANGER doit être rappelée.
➡️ On dit souvent que corrélation n'implique PAS CAUSALITE, la nuance est essentielle.

To me the push back against #BigPharma #Vaccines #GunControl #Police #Prisons #Abortion #GMO #Monsanto et al and the other top level conspiracy debates are about government control! Think about the polarised sides that these debates take and who is on which side!
Do Democrats want overarching control in a socialist state? They support abortion choices which conservatives say ‘kills’ millions each year! Which can be spun as controlling the reproductive capabilities of some sections of society.
They support Gun Control which would leave the people defenceless against a tyrannical government. The support open borders and mass migration which would undoubtedly create a class of uneducated workers that would be taken advantage of.

"It has emerged that an institute co-run by the chairman of the #UN’s joint meeting on pesticide residues (#JMPR) received a six-figure donation from #Monsanto, which uses the substance as a core ingredient in its bestselling #Roundup weedkiller."
#Bayer theguardian.com/environment/20…
2. "Professor Alan #Boobis, who chaired the #UN’s joint FAO/WHO meeting on #glyphosate, also works as the vice-president of the International Life Science Institute (#ILSI) Europe.
In 2012, the ILSI group took a $500,000 (£344,234) donation from Monsanto!"
#Bayer
3 Lawyer, ClientEarth group: "There is a clear conflict of interest here if the review of the safety of #glyphosate is carried out by scientists that directly get money from industry.This study cannot in any way be reliably considered when deciding whether to approve glyphosate."

I lived in England for years and as an investigative reporter I followed the creation of this monstrosity of globalization called the #EuropeanUnion. It's #NAFTA times 50! soundcloud.com/user-835943867… #Brexit
My investigation into the EU began when I got the minutes of 14 secret meetings between all the top banking chiefs and international government operatives. They called themselves #TheInvisibles. gregpalast.com/the-wtos-hidde… #Brexit
The Invisibles were writing the rules of the EU to smash unions and stop regulation of industry. We’ve just seen an example of this; Germany was about to vote to eliminate #RoundUp, but changed its crucial vote weeks after BAYER bought #Monsanto. soundcloud.com/user-835943867… #Brexit

In today's Pilliod v. Monsanto testimony, expert Dr. Charles Benbrook shared more about the scientific fraud by Industrial Bio-Test (IBT) Laboratories in the 1970s, and how Roundup was approved by the EPA based on IBT's invalid studies. #MonsantoTrial
Dr. Benbook is an agricultural economist and headed a subcommittee of the House Committee on Agriculture at the height of the IBT scandal from 1981-1983. @helenchristophi reported on his Johnson testimony and the IBT fraud here:

📣 Achtung, Achtung: Dies ist eine wichtige Durchsage zur Nähe des Bundesinstituts für Risikobewertung (BfR) zur Industrie [THREAD].

(Hintergrund: Das BfR lässt unsere Partner von @fragdenstaat gerade wg. der Veröffentlichung eines #Glyphosat-Gutachtens abmahnen👇)
1 | Das BfR ist eine staatliche Einrichtung. Im Gegensatz zur Weltgesundheitsorganisation WHO hält sie das Unkrautvernichtungsmittel #Glyphosat für *nicht krebserzeugend*
2 | Über das Bundesinstitut lässt sich vieles sagen. Dass das BfR bislang großen Abstand zur Industrie gehalten hätte, gehört nicht dazu.

Sehen wir uns einmal die Mitglieder der BfR-Kommission für "Pflanzenschutzmittel und ihre Rückstände" an.

Retrouver dans ce fil mon intervention dans la discussion générale pour interdire l'usage du #glyphosate en France. #LoisFi2019 #DirectAN
⬇️ A dérouler ! ⬇️
Le constat est clair et sans appel : une exposition régulière au #glyphosate augmente de 41% les risques de souffrir d’une forme rare de cancer du sang. C’est un chiffre effrayant. #DirectAN #LoisFi2019
D’autres études, comme celle de Gilles-Eric Séralini, ont déjà démontré que le #glyphosate est cancérigène pour les animaux. Et l’OMS reconnaît même ce pesticide comme cancérigène probable pour l’homme.
A minima, le principe de précaution devrait s’imposer. #LoisFi2019 #DirectAN

If you ever worried that science was being warped by corporate interests, this backpedal by AAAS in giving an award to pesticide researcher should lay that to rest.

Answer seems to be "yes."

Non,le #glyphosate n'est pas le bon cheval de bataille car il est très peu toxique & non cancérigène #fact🤔academic.oup.com/jnci/article-a… … par contre ses remplaçants confectionnés par #Monsanto st bien +nocifs & +rentables 😱
Rappel: brevet #glyphosate est ds domaine public dps 2001
La revue @JNCI_Now (Journal of the National Cancer Institute) dans laquelle cela a été publié est très sérieuse : #ImpactFactor 12,583 pour l'année 2014, au 8e rang parmi 202 journaux de la catégorie #Oncologie

1/6 Emails shows #Monsanto orchestrated a behind the scenes retraction of Seralini's paper on #GMOs.

David Saltimiras w/ #Monsanto started "the last rites of Seralini" with an email to Sir Colin Berry.

@NaomiOreskes @sejorg @TimothyAWise @industrydocs @sfoucart @fastlerner
@NaomiOreskes @sejorg @TimothyAWise @industrydocs @sfoucart @fastlerner 2/6 The campaign to get the paper retracted ran for months. Saltimiras then writes his #Monsanto colleagues that the journal editor can't do anything w/ blog and web postings and needs "formal letters to the Editor."

Guess what Monsanto did? Wild guess....
@NaomiOreskes @sejorg @TimothyAWise @industrydocs @sfoucart @fastlerner 3/6 BTW, let's pause for a moment to see how the "science media" covered this retraction.

Story at NBC news gives you a taste of the pile on against Seralini w/o any mention that this was a corporate orchestrated hit on a scientist. nbcnews.com/science/journa…

@TorniAlan @RobertKennedyJr @CapitalJon @mektronik 1. As a lawyer I would call it “coming to the nuisance”: #Bayer knew about the challenges against #glyphosate (#Roundup). They exist in the #EU, in Africa, in #Asia & the #US: Bad news for Bayer - In the US you have to pay huge damages! Good for the consumer! #Monsanto
@TorniAlan @RobertKennedyJr @CapitalJon @mektronik 2. I would love to see what the due diligence report stated during the #Monsanto-takeover - It seems that #Bayer underestimated the risk-impact of #glyphosate somewhat! Many concerns on #Roundup existed for years! There is also a reason why #Monsanto was called #Monsatan...
@TorniAlan @RobertKennedyJr @CapitalJon @mektronik 3. Never understood why a 150 year old #Pharma-company, with good brands,a very decent goodwill and high margins would expand further into #CropScience (never did well for #Bayer) with a company like #Monsanto (soso reputation, lower margins & obvious risk)!
