Vacuna contra Gripe AH1N1 “sin duda” Causa Trastornos Crónicos del Sistema Nervioso

El gobierno de Finlandia dice que va a pagar por “el cuidado médico de por vida” para los 79 niños que han sido irreparablemente dañados por la vacuna.

Finlandia admitió esta semana que la vacuna contra la gripe AH1N1 causa narcolepsia, un trastorno crónico del sistema nervioso que hace que la gente sienta un deseo incontrolable de dormir. El Gobierno finlandés, en reconocimiento a este vínculo, dice que va a pagar por “el cuidado médico de por vida” para los 79 niños que han sido irreparablemente afectados por la vacuna.

La narcolepsia no es el único efecto secundario. Médicos finlandeses y de otros países admiten las victimas de esta vacuna también sufren de alucinaciones y “colapsos físicos paralizantes”, dicen los investigadores finlandeses.

Sorprendentemente, a pesar de que la relación entre las vacunas contra la gripe AH1N1 y daños neurológicos permanentes en los niños es abiertamente admitido por el gobierno finlandés, no hay absolutamente ninguna iniciativa para detener el ritual completamente anti-científico de inyectar a los niños con vacunas contra la gripe. No sólo son las vacunas contra la gripe perjudiciales para los niños (como ahora se admite), sino que ni siquiera funcionan. Una dosis simple diarias de vitamina D podría hacer mucho más para detener la gripe que cualquier vacuna.

EE.UU. se niega a admitir que las vacunas daño a nadie

El gobierno de EE.UU. así como casi todos los gobiernos todavía se niega a admitir que las vacunas causan daño alguno. Tanto los gobiernos como la industria de las vacunas continúan empujando el cuento falso de que “las vacunas son seguras y eficaces”, lo que significa que no perjudicaría a nadie, sino nos ayudan a todos. Sin embargo, la verdad es casi el polo opuesto: Vacunas causan daños incontables a millones de niños cada año, de manera que nunca es públicamente asociada a las mismas (retraso mental leve, función inmune suprimida, problemas de aprendizaje, etc). Al mismo tiempo, las vacunas no tienen casi ningún valor en la prevención de infecciones. Incluso la propia investigación del sector de las vacunas demuestra que vacunas contra la gripe sólo funcionan en 1 de cada 100 personas, lo que significa que son completamente inútiles para el 99 por ciento de aquellos que los toman.

En lugar de admitir la verdad de que el autismo es causado por las vacunas, los gobiernos se han confabulado con los fabricantes de vacunas. En EE.UU., el gobierno creó un Programa de Compensación para atender financieramente los casos de lesiones causadas por las vacunas, que esencialmente compra el silencio de las victimas con dinero de los contribuyentes; esto para asegurarse de que no puedan presentar sus reclamos de daño a los tribunales federales.

Peor aún, el establecimiento médico – que está fuertemente influenciado por los intereses farmacéuticos – se niega a defender el hecho que la vitamina D como nutriente es más efectivo para la prevención de la gripe. La vitamina D es segura, eficaz y asequible. Está disponible sin receta médica y podría ahorrar miles de millones de dólares de los gastos nacionales de salud por sólo unos centavos por día por persona. Así que ¿por qué el establecimiento médico no promueve la vitamina D? Precisamente porque le costaría miles de millones de dólares en pérdidas a la industria que se beneficia de todas las enfermedades degenerativas que se podrían prevenir con vitamina D.

Por supuesto que las vacunas causan autismo!

No hay absolutamente ninguna duda en la mente de cualquier persona razonablemente informada de que las vacunas causan daños neurológicos, incluyendo (pero no limitados a) el autismo. Sólo los científicos que sirven como prostitutas de las corporaciones en todo el mundo continúan con su farsa de que las vacunas no están vinculadas con el autismo, o que las vacunas funcionan eficazmente. La mayoría de los usuarios de vacunas aún no han escuchado la entrevista secreta con el científico de la corporación Merck, el Dr. Maurice Hilleman, donde este admite abiertamente que las vacunas llevan docenas de cepas causantes de cáncer. Lea aquí la transcripción. Escuche el audio de la entrevista transcrita en este link.

Del mismo modo, la mayoría de la gente todavía no sabe que el Dr. Jonas Salk, el famoso “progenitor” de las vacunas, a quien se acredita la creación de la vacuna contra la polio, fue un criminal médico que cometió crímenes atroces contra la humanidad en nombre de la “ciencia médica”.

De hecho, toda la historia de las vacunas y la medicina ha sido totalmente distorsionada por el establecimiento médico para pintar las vacunas como un descubrimiento glorioso de la salud pública. Pero la verdadera historia es que las vacunas son ahora – y siempre han sido – herramientas para causar enfermedad y promocionar medicamentos para que la industria farmacéutica pueda beneficiarse. Esta es la horripilante verdad sobre la industria de las vacunas y el establecimiento médico

Recuerde que este es el mismo establecimiento que realizó experimentos médicos con prisioneros de Guatemala. Estas son las mismas personas que realizaron los experimentos de Tuskegee en los afroamericanos.

¿De verdad crees que estos criminales no usarían a los niños para llevar a cabo experimentos con vacunas para realizar inoculaciones masivas? Recuerde: se trata de criminales salvajes que actúan al estilo nazi. Esto es lo que mueve a la industria farmacéutica. El ex presidente de Bayer, por ejemplo, fue condenado en los juicios de Nuremberg por su participación como un criminal de guerra nazi.

No me cree? Lea su historia:

“El Dr. Fritz ter Meer, director de IG Farben, que estaba directamente involucrado en el desarrollo del gas Zyklon-B, que mató a millones de Judios, fue condenado a siete años de cárcel pero fue liberado después de cuatro años a través de la intervención de los Rockefeller y JJ McCloy, quien era entonces el estadounidense nombrado como Alto Comisionado de Alemania. Un arrepentido Fritz ter Meer, culpable de genocidio y crímenes contra la humanidad, volvió a trabajar en Bayer, donde se desempeñó como Presidente durante más de 10 años, hasta 1961. Este mismo Meer, un convicto criminal de guerra nazi, se convirtió en uno de los iniciadores de la Comisión del Codex Alimentarius en 1962, una organización que se nutre de la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS), la Organización para la Agricultura y la Alimentación (FAO), y, más recientemente, la Organización Mundial del Comercio (OMC). Vea los detalles aquí.

Los gobiernos saben que las vacunas mutilan y matan a los niños – y es por eso que las usan de forma tan agresiva.

Usted ve, todos los gobiernos del mundo ya saben lo que significa el uso de las vacunas. Ellos saben que las vacunas matan y mutilan a los niños. Ellos saben que las vacunas causan autismo y desórdenes neurológicos. Ellos lo saben pero continúan su promoción de las vacunas de todos modos. ¿Por qué? Debido a que son asesinos de masas que tienen sus raíces filosóficas en la Alemania nazi y el movimiento de la eugenesia. Incluso la Agencia para el Control de Medicamentos y Alimentos (FDA), puede ser relacionada a los orígenes del movimiento de eugenesia y el control de la población. Bill Gates, que promueve la vacunación en todo el mundo, admite abiertamente que las vacunas y el cuidado de la salud pueden “reducir la población mundial de 10 a 15 por ciento” si “se hace un buen trabajo.”

No me cree? Vea a Bill Gates diciéndolo en este video.

Las vacunas no se dan a los niños para por “accidente” matar a algunos niños y causar trastornos neurológicos en los demás. Se les dan ya que causan trastornos neurológicos, fallo múltiple de órganos, infertilidad, reducción de inteligencia y muchos otros efectos secundarios.

Las vacunas actuales crean los clientes del mañana.

Las vacunas mantienen a las grandes farmacéuticas en el negocio basados en las ganancias repetidas.

¿Cómo es que las grandes farmacéuticas asegurarían sus beneficios futuros si la población se vuelve y se mantiene saludable? El punto de las vacunas es el de dañar la salud humana y atraer miles de millones de dólares en beneficios a largo plazo de todo el sufrimiento y las enfermedades causadas por las vacunas.

Vamos, amigos: ¿Creen realmente que todas estas empresas con ánimo de lucro están tratando de ayudar a la humanidad? ¿Creen realmente que los CEOs de las compañías farmacéuticas son santurrones humanitarios que renuncian a sus ganancias y las de los accionistas e impulsan sus propias empresas a la quiebra mediante la promoción de la salud duradera?

Despierta, pueblo. Despierta y huele el café. A las compañías farmacéuticas no les importa asesinar a niños nigerianos, o incluso usar a sus propios hijos en experimentos médicos, siempre y cuando ganen más dinero en el proceso. Y después de haber visto innumerables documentos, consejos, testimonios y otras fuentes de información que se me han dado a mí durante estos años, le puedo decir con absoluta certeza que la industria farmacéutica está utilizando activamente las vacunas que causan enfermedades degenerativas como una manera de asegurarse las ganancias futuras.

Las vacunas son una estrategia de continuidad de negocio utilizado por la industria farmacéutica con fines de lucro.

Es como un mecánico de automóviles que lanza algunos disolventes en su tanque de gas de modo que usted tenga que regresar para hacer las reparaciones del motor después de unos pocos cientos de millas. Las compañías farmacéuticas están dispuestas a hacer cualquier cosa para garantizar sus ganancias, y no importa si esto incluye la comisión de actos de genocidio contra la raza humana, siempre que aumente sus ganancias netas.

No estamos tratando con seres éticos, con principios humanos en la industria farmacéutica, amigos. Estamos tratando con gente con mentalidad criminal; con monstruos que han encontrado en el egoísmo, una forma de enriquecerse a costa del sufrimiento de los demás.
Y estos monstruos disfrutan de esto. Ellos se sacian al ver a los niños sufriendo y muriendo a causa de sus vacunas. Ellos están muy satisfechos al ver que consiguen realizando esta estafa con tal éxito que el publico ignorante del mundo se alinean en sus farmacias locales y piden para ser inyectados con los aditivos químicos y viruses muy vivos que destruye su salud y lo convierte en víctima de por vida. médica.

La élite de enfermos dementes que ingenian todo esto (que incluye a personas en las altas esferas de la FDA, por cierto), son como vampiros que chupan la vida de inocentes niños para alimentar sus apetitos diabólicos de riqueza y poder. Y ver que todo esto ocurre todos los días en los Estados Unidos, Finlandia, y en todas partes alrededor del mundo es absolutamente indignante. Es por eso que trabajamos tan duro para exponer a estos charlatanes médicos como los verdaderos criminales que son en realidad. Estas personas que dirigen las grandes farmacéuticas y la industria de las vacunas podría infectar a su bebé con el cáncer si se les garantiza ganancias con el uso de quimioterapia dos décadas despues.

Estas personas deben de ser arrestadas, encarceladas y acusadas de su participación en estos crímenes contra la humanidad. El movimiento contra Wall Street es sólo un movimiento que se levanta en contra de la estafa total de la industria bancaria fraudulenta y la Reserva Federal, pero necesitamos otro movimiento: Ocupar las grandes farmacéuticas donde estos enfermos degenerados han planeado como afectar la salud de las masas con estas vacunas y productos farmacéuticos. Los directores de estas corporaciones deben ser acusados de crímenes contra la humanidad.

Yo sé que ese día se acerca. Habrá un día en que las masas enojadas y enfermas averiguarán la profundidad de los crímenes médicos que se han cometido contra ellos en nombre de la “salud pública …” y se enfrentaran al Establecimiento.

A todos los directores generales de empresas de vacunas por ahí: Disfruten de sus millones en este momento, porque llegará un día en que tendrán que responder por cómo llegó ese dinero y quien realmente tuvo que pagar el precio de sus beneficios financieros. Cientos de millones de niños se ven perjudicados hoy en día en todo el mundo gracias a las vacunas, y ese número seguirá aumentando con cada año que pasa y que se permita que la humanidad continúe siendo químicamente asaltada por estas armas biológicas conocidas como “vacunas”.

Swine Flu Vaccine “conclusively” Causes Chronic Nervous System Disorders

The nation of Finland has now openly admitted that the swine flu vaccine “conclusively” causes narcolepsy

The Finnish government says it will pay for “lifetime medical care” for 79 children who have been irreparably damaged by the swine flu vaccine.

October 8, 2011

The nation of Finland has now openly admitted that the swine flu vaccine “conclusively” causes narcolepsy, a chronic nervous system disorder that makes people uncontrollably fall asleep. The Finnish government, in acknowledging this link, says it will pay for “lifetime medical care” for 79 children who have been irreparably damaged by the swine flu vaccine. (http://news.yahoo.com/finland-vows-…)

Narcolepsy isn’t the only side effect now admitted to be caused by swine flu vaccines: 76 of the 79 children also suffered hallucinations and “paralyzing physical collapses,” say Finnish researchers.

Remarkably, even though the link between swine flu vaccines and permanent neurological damage in children is now openly admitted by the Finnish government, there is absolutely no talk about halting the utterly unscientific ritual of injecting children with flu vaccines in the first place. Not only are flu vaccines harmful to children (as is now admitted), but flu vaccines don’t even work! A simple daily dose of vitamin D would do far more to halt influenza than any vaccine (http://www.naturalnews.com/029760_v…).

U.S. refuses to admit vaccines harm anyone

The U.S. government, of course, still refuses to admit vaccines cause any harm whatsoever. Both the government and the vaccine industry continue to push the fabricated fairy tale that “vaccines are safe and effective,” meaning they harm no one but help everyone. Yet the truth is practically the polar opposite: Vaccines harm countless millions of children each year in ways that are usually never linked to vaccines (mild mental retardation, suppressed immune function, learning disabilities, etc.). At the same time, vaccines are all but worthless at preventing infections. Even the vaccine industry’s own research shows that flu shots only work on 1 out of 100 people, meaning they’re completely useless for 99 percent of those who take them (http://www.naturalnews.com/029641_v…).

Instead of admitting the truth that vaccines cause autism, the U.S. government has conspired with vaccine manufacturers to create a Vaccine Injury Compensation Program which essentially pays “hush money” to parents of permanently harmed children to make sure they cannot bring their claims of harm to federal courts (http://www.naturalnews.com/033635_v…).

Even worse, the medical establishment — which is heavily influenced if not downright dominated by pharmaceutical interests — absolutely refuses to advocate vitamin D as a flu prevention nutrient. Vitamin D is safe, effective and affordable. It’s available without a prescription and could save literally billions of dollars in national health care costs for just pennies per day per person. So why won’t the medical establishment promote vitamin D? Precisely because it would cost the industry billions of dollars in lost profits from all the sickness and degenerative disease that is prevented by vitamin D.
Of course vaccines cause autism!

There is absolutely no question in the mind of any reasonably informed person that vaccines cause neurological damage, including (but not limited to) autism. Only the corporate-whore scientists around the world continue their charade that vaccines are not linked to autism; or that vaccines even work in the first place. Most Americans haven’t yet heard the secret interview with Merck vaccine scientist Dr. Maurice Hilleman where he openly admits vaccines carry dozens of strains of cancer-causing “stealth” viruses. Read the transcript here:

http://www.naturalnews.com/033584_D…Listen to the interview at:
http://naturalnews.tv/v.asp?v=13EAA…Similarly, most people still don’t know that Dr. Jonas Salk, the celebrated “grandfather” of vaccines who is credited with creating the polio vaccine, was an unindicted medical criminal who committed heinous crimes against humanity in the name of “medical science.” (http://www.naturalnews.com/031564_J…)In fact, the whole history of vaccines and medicine has been utterly distorted by the medical establishment to paint vaccines in a glorified light of public health. But the real story is that vaccines are now — and have always been — tools for causing diseaseand promoting sickness so that the pharmaceutical industry can benefit as a result.The horrifying truth about the vaccine industry and medical establishment

Remember, this is the same industry that got caught conducting outrageous medical experiments on Guatemalan prisoners (http://www.naturalnews.com/033483_G…). These are the same people who ran Tuskegee experiments on African Americans, too (http://www.naturalnews.com/029924_m…).

Do you honestly think these same vaccine criminals would not also use innocent children for their own mass inoculation medical experiments? Remember: These are hard-core, Nazi-style criminals we’re talking about here. This is who runs the pharmaceutical industry. The former chairperson of Bayer, for example, was a convicted Nazi war criminal who was indicted and sentenced at the Nuremburg trials:

Don’t believe me? Read your history:

“Dr. Fritz ter Meer, a director of IG Farben who was directly involved in developing the nerve gas, Zyklon-B, which killed millions of Jews, was sentenced to seven years in prison but was released after four years through the intervention of Rockefeller and J.J. McCloy, then U.S. High Commissioner for Germany. An unrepentant Fritz ter Meer, guilty of genocide and crimes against humanity, returned to work in Bayer where he served as Chairman for more than 10 years, until 1961. This same ter Meer, a convicted Nazi war criminal, went on to become one of the initiators of the Codex Alimentarius Commission in 1962, an organization that was nurtured by the World Health Organization (WHO), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and latterly the World Trade Organization (WTO).” (http://www.naturalnews.com/024534_E…)

Governments know vaccines maim and kill children — that’s exactly why they push them so aggressively

You see, every world government already knows that vaccines are murder. They know vaccines kill and maim children. They know vaccines cause autism and neurological disorders. They know this and then they keep promoting vaccines anyway. Why? Because they are mass murderers who have philosophical roots in Nazi Germany and the eugenics movement. Even today’s FDA can be traced backed to eugenics and population control. Bill Gates, who promotes world vaccination, openly admits that vaccines and health care can “reduce world population by 10 to 15 percent” if they “do a good job.” (http://www.naturalnews.com/029911_v…)

Don’t believe me? Watch Bill Gates say it himself in this video:
http://www.naturalnews.tv/v.asp?v=A…

Vaccines are not given to children with the “accident” that they kill some children and cause neurological disorders in others; no, they are given to children BECAUSE they cause neurological disorders, organ failure, infertility, reduced intelligence and numerous other side effects.

Today’s vaccines create tomorrow’s health care customers, you see.

Vaccines keep Big Pharma in business based on repeat profits

How else is Big Pharma supposed to ensure its future profits if the population were actually allowed to stay healthy? The whole point of vaccines is to DAMAGE HUMAN HEALTH and rake in trillions of dollars in long-term profits from all the suffering and disease caused by those vaccines.

C’mon, folks: Do you really think all these for-profit companies are trying to HELP humanity? Do you really think drug company CEOs are goody-goody humanitarians who would give up their shareholder profits and drive their own companies out of business by promoting lasting health?

Wake up, people. Wake up and smell the coffee. Drug companies think absolutely nothing of murdering Nigerian children (http://www.naturalnews.com/023654.html) or even using your own children as medical experiments as long as they make more money in the process. And as the editor of NaturalNews, having seen countless documents, tips, testimonials and other sources of information that have been given to me over the years, I can tell you with absolute certainty that the pharmaceutical industry is actively using vaccines to CAUSE degenerative disease as a way to lock in future profits from that disease.

Vaccines are a business continuity strategy used by the for-profit pharmaceutical industry

It’s just like a greasy car mechanic throwing some solvents into your gas tank so that you have to come back for engine repairs after a few hundred miles. The drug companies are willing to do anything to guarantee their profits, and that includes committing acts of genocide against the human race as long as it fattens their bottom line profits.

We are not dealing with ethical, principled human beings in the pharmaceutical industry, folks. We are dealing with criminal-minded monsters who have found a way to selfishly enrich themselves at the expense and suffering of others.

And they relish in it. They get off on watching children suffer and die from their vaccines. They get a rise out of the fact that they are pulling off this scam with such success that the sheeple of the world will actually line up at their local pharmacies and beg to be injected with the very chemical adjuvants and live viral materials that will destroy their health and turn them into lifetime medical victims.

The sick, demented medical elite who engineer all this (which includes top people at the FDA, by the way), are like modern-day vampires who suck the life out of innocent little children in order to feed their own devilish appetites for wealth and power. And watching it all happen every day in America, Finland, and everywhere else around the world is absolutely infuriating. That’s why I work so hard to expose these medical quacks for the true criminals they really are. These people who lead Big Pharma and the vaccine industry would infect your baby with cancer if it guaranteed them chemotherapy profits two decades down the road.

These people should be arrested, thrown in prison and charged with their role in these crimes against humanity. Occupy Wall Street is just one movement that’s rising up in opposition to the total scam of the fraudulent banking industry and the Federal Reserve, but we need another movement: Occupy Big Pharma where the sick, degenerate masses who have been harmed by all these vaccines and deadly pharmaceuticals march on the drug companies and arrest their CEOs for crimes against humanity.

I know that day is coming. There will be a day when the angry, diseased masses figure out the depth of the medical crimes that have been committed against them in the name of “public health…” and they will rage against the machine.

To all the vaccine company CEOs out there: Enjoy your millions right now, because there will come a day when you have to answer for how you got that money and who really had to pay the price for your financial windfall. Hundreds of millions of children are harmed today around the world because of vaccines, and that number will continue to rise with each passing year that we allow humanity to be chemically assaulted by these biological weapons known as “vaccines.”

Pruebas forenses: E. coli en Europa fue “bioingeniada”

Junio 6, 2011

A pesar de que hay un juego para culpar a los productores de vegetales orgánicos como la fuente de contaminación en toda la UE, donde una cepa de E. coli está enfermando a las personas que consumen frutas y vegetales, casi nadie está hablando de cómo podría ser que E. coli, por arte de magia se vuelva resistente a ocho diferentes clases de antibióticos y de repente aparezca en el suministro de alimentos.

Esta variación de E. coli en particular, es un miembro de la cepa O104, O104 y cepas similares no son casi nunca (naturalmente) resistentes a los antibióticos. Para que la cepa adquiera esta resistencia, debe ser expuesta repetidamente a los antibióticos a fin de “causar la mutación” que les hace ser inmunes a tales antibióticos.

Así que si tienes curiosidad sobre los orígenes de dicha cepa, solo falta hacer ingeniería inversa del código genético de la E. coli y determinar con bastante exactitud los antibióticos a los que estuvo expuesta durante su desarrollo. Este paso se ha hecho (ver más abajo), y cuando nos fijamos en la decodificación genética de esta cepa O104 que ahora amenaza a los consumidores de alimentos en toda la UE, emerge una imagen fascinante de la forma en que debe haber llegado a existir.

El código genético revela la historia

Cuando los científicos en el Instituto Robert Koch de Alemania descifraron la estructura genética de la cepa O104, encontraron que es resistente a todas las siguientes clases y combinaciones de antibióticos:

• penicilinas
• tetraciclina
• ácido nalidíxico
• trimetoprima-sulfametoxazol
• cefalosporinas
• amoxicilina / ácido clavulánico
• piperacilina-sulbactam
• piperacilina-tazobactam

Además, esta cepa O104 posee una capacidad de producir enzimas especiales que le dan lo que podríamos llamar “superpoderes”, conocido técnicamente como ESBL’s:

“Extended-Spectrum Beta-Lactamases (ESBLs), son enzimas que pueden ser producidos por las bacterias haciéndolas resistentes a las cefalosporinas. Por ejemplo: cefuroxima, cefotaxima y ceftazidima – que son los antibióticos más utilizados en muchos hospitales “, explica la Agencia de Protección de la Salud en el Reino Unido (http://www.hpa.org.uk/Topics/Infect …).

Además de eso, esta cepa O104 posee dos genes – TEM-1 y CTX-M-15 – que “han estado haciendo temblar a los médicos desde la década de 1990”, informa The Guardian (http://www.guardian.co.uk/ commentis …). ¿Y por qué hacen temblar los médicos? Porque son tan fatales que muchas personas infectadas con bacterias experimentan falla de órganos críticos de sus cuerpos y simplemente mueren.

Creando una superbacteria mortal

Entonces, ¿cómo exactamente es que existe una cepa bacteriana que es resistente a más de una docena de antibióticos en ocho clases de fármacos diferentes y cuenta con dos mutaciones genéticas mortales más la capacidad de crear sus propias enzimas ESBLs?

Hay realmente sólo una forma en que esto puede ocurrir (y sólo una forma). Es necesario que esta cepa sea expuesta a las ocho clases de medicamentos antibióticos. Por lo general esto no se hace al mismo tiempo, por supuesto. En primer lugar, se expone la cepa a la penicilina. De las colonias que crearon resistencia, se escogen muestras y se les expone a la tetraciclina. Las colonias supervivientes son ahora resistentes a la penicilina y la tetraciclina. A continuación, se les expone a un medicamento a base de sulfa y se recogen las colonias sobrevivientes de eso, y así sucesivamente. Se trata de un proceso de selección genética realizada en un laboratorio con un resultado deseado. Se trata esencialmente de cómo algunas armas biológicas han sido diseñados por el Ejército de EE.UU. en sus instalaciones de laboratorio en Fort Detrick, Maryland (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nation …).

Aunque el proceso real es más complicado que esto, el resultado es que la creación de una cepa de E. coli que es resistente a ocho clases de antibióticos requiere repetidas y continuas exposiciones a los antibióticos. Es casi imposible imaginar cómo esto podría ocurrir por sí mismo en el mundo natural. Por ejemplo, si esta bacteria se originó en los alimentos (como nos han dicho), entonces ¿de dónde adquirió toda esta resistencia a los antibióticos, dado que los antibióticos no se utilizan en las verduras?

Al considerar las pruebas genéticas que ahora conocemos, es difícil imaginar cómo esto podría suceder “en la naturaleza.” Aunque la resistencia a un solo antibiótico es común, la creación de una cepa de E. coli que es resistente a ocho diferentes clases de antibióticos – en combinación – simplemente desafía las leyes de la permutación y la combinación genética en la naturaleza. En pocas palabras, esta cepa E.coli superbacteria no pudo haber sido creada en la naturaleza. Sólo queda una explicación de donde realmente provienen: del laboratorio.

Diseñado y luego se libera en el medio natural

La evidencia ahora apunta a que la mortal cepa de E. coli fue diseñada y luego liberada en el suministro de alimentos o de alguna manera se escapó de un laboratorio y entró en el suministro de alimentos sin ser detectada. Si no está de acuerdo con esa conclusión – y usted es bienvenido tener su propia opinión, – entonces usted está obligado a concluir que esta superbacteria (inmune a ocho clases de antibióticos), se desarrolló al azar por su propia cuenta … ante lo cual, la conclusión es mucho más aterradora que la explicación de que fue “bioingeniada” porque significa que hay superbacterias que simplemente pueden aparecer en cualquier lugar en cualquier momento y sin causa alguna. Eso sería toda una teoría exótica, de hecho.

Mi conclusión en realidad tiene más sentido: Esta cepa de E. coli fue casi con toda seguridad diseñada y luego puesta en libertad en el suministro de alimentos para un propósito específico. ¿Para lograr qué? Es obvio, espero.

Todo se relaciona al Problema, Reacción, Solución. Primero, se causa un problema (una mortal cepa de E. coli en los alimentos). Luego, se espera la reacción del público (gran protesta porque la población está aterrorizada por E. coli). En respuesta a ello, se decreta la solución deseada (control total sobre el suministro mundial de alimentos y la prohibición de verduras crudas, leche cruda y verduras crudas).

De eso es lo que se trata todo esto. La FDA se basó en el mismo fenómeno en los EE.UU. para imponer su reciente “Ley de Modernización de Seguridad Alimentaria”, que esencialmente es la ley que criminaliza la agricultura orgánica en pequeñas granjas familiares. La FDA fue capaz de aplastar la libertad de los granjeros de sembrar sus propios alimentos en los Estados Unidos montándose sobre el miedo generalizado que siguió a los brotes de E. coli en el suministro de alimentos de EE.UU.. Cuando la gente tiene miedo, no es difícil conseguir que se pongan de acuerdo a casi cualquier nivel, y por ende es más fácil implantar reglamentaciones de alcance nacional o internacional; en otras palabras una tiranía alimentaria. Y hacer que la gente tenga miedo de sus alimentos es una cuestión simple … una conferencia de prensa del gobierno o un correo electrónico a los afiliados y medios de comunicación es todo lo que necesita.

Primero la prohibición de la medicina natural, y luego se ataca el suministro de alimentos

Ahora, recuerde: Todo esto que está sucediendo viene después que la UE prohibió el uso de hierbas medicinales y suplementos nutricionales – una prohibición que descaradamente prohíbe el uso de terapias nutricionales que ayudan a mantener la gente sana y libre de enfermedades. Ahora que todas estas hierbas y suplementos son prohibidas, el siguiente paso es hacer que la gente tenga miedo de alimentos frescos. Esto se debe a que las verduras frescas son medicinales, y mientras el público tenga el derecho a comprar verduras frescas, siempre podrá prevenir enfermedades.

Pero si usted puede hacer que la gente tenga miedo de verduras frescas – o incluso prohibirlas por completo – entonces usted puede obligar a toda la población a una dieta de alimentos muertos y procesados que promuevan las enfermedades degenerativas y refuercen los beneficios de las compañías farmacéuticas.

Todo esto es parte de la misma agenda: Mantener a las personas enfermas, negándoles el acceso a las hierbas curativas y los suplementos, para después sacar provecho de su sufrimiento a manos de las corporaciones farmacéuticas. Esto fue lo que sucedió con la gripe H1N1, ¿no fue?

Los transgénicos desempeñan un papel similar en todo esto, por supuesto: Están diseñados para contaminar el suministro de alimentos con códigos genéticos que causan infertilidad generalizada entre los seres humanos. Y los que son de alguna manera capaz de reproducirse después de la exposición a los OMG siguen sufriendo de las enfermedades degenerativas que enriquecen a las compañías farmacéuticas.

¿Recuerda qué país fue blanco de este susto E.coli recientemente? España. ¿Por qué España? Usted puede recordar los cables de Wikileaks que revelaron que España se resistió a la introducción de OMG en su sistema agrícola, así como que el gobierno de EE.UU. amenazó con represalias políticas por su resistencia. Esta falsa culpa de España por la aparición de esta cepa de E. coli es probablemente una represalia por la falta de voluntad de España para subirse al carro de los OMG. (http://www.naturalnews.com/030828_G …)

Esa es la verdadera historia detrás de la devastación económica de los productores de hortalizas de España. Es una de las subplanes que se llevan a cabo en contra de quienes no adopten esquemas reglamentados por las organizaciones supra nacionales y sus dueños, las corporaciones.

Alimentos como armas de guerra – creadas por Big Pharma?

Por cierto, la explicación más probable de que esta cepa de E. coli fue bioingeniada es los laboratorios de las gigantes farmacéuticas. ¿Quién más tiene acceso a todos los antibióticos y el equipo necesario para gestionar las mutaciones específicas y potencialmente crear miles de colonias de E. coli? Las compañías farmacéuticas están en una posición privilegiada para llevar a cabo esta trama y beneficiarse de ella. En otras palabras, tienen los medios y la motivación para participar en la realización de tales acciones.

Aparte de las compañías farmacéuticas, tal vez sólo los reguladores de enfermedades infecciosas tienen este tipo de capacidad. La CDC, por ejemplo, probablemente podría sacar esto adelante si realmente quisiera.

La prueba de que alguien bioingenió esta cepa de E. coli está escrito en el ADN de la bacteria. Esa es la evidencia forense, y lo que revela que no se puede negar. Esta cepa fue expuesta repetidamente a ocho clases diferentes de antibióticos, y luego apareció en el suministro de alimentos. ¿Cómo se llega, si no que a través de un sistema bien planificado llevado a cabo por científicos deshonestos? No hay tal cosa como “mutación espontánea” en una cepa que sea resistente a las ocho mejores marcas de antibióticos que se venden por Big Pharma hoy. Estas mutaciones tienen que ser deliberadas.

Una vez más, si no está de acuerdo con esta evaluación, entonces lo que tendríamos que pensar es que NO se ha hecho deliberadamente … ocurrió por accidente! Y de nuevo, estoy diciendo que esto es incluso más aterrador! Porque eso significa que la contaminación con antibióticos de nuestro mundo se encuentra ahora en un nivel tan extremo que una cepa de E. coli en la naturaleza puede estar saturada con ocho clases diferentes de antibióticos hasta el punto en que naturalmente se convierta en una mortal superbacteria. Si eso es lo que la gente cree, entonces eso es casi una teoría más aterradora que la explicación de bioingeniería!

Una nueva era ha comenzado: armas biológicas en los alimentos

Pero en cualquier caso – no importa lo que usted crea – la simple verdad es que el mundo se enfrenta ahora a una nueva era mundial de cepas de superbacteria que no se pueden tratar con cualquier farmacéutico conocido. Todas estas superbacterias, sin embargo, pueden ser fácilmente exterminadas con plata coloidal, que es exactamente la razón por la que la FDA y los reguladores de salud en el mundo han atacado con saña a las empresas que producen plata coloidal todos estos años: El público no puede tener en sus manos antibióticos naturales que realmente funcionan. Eso acabaría con el propósito de convertirnos a todos en enfermos.

De hecho, estas cepas de superbacterias E.coli pueden ser muy fácilmente tratadas con una combinación de antibióticos naturales de amplio espectro de plantas como el ajo, el jengibre, cebolla y hierbas medicinales. Además de eso, los probióticos pueden ayudar a equilibrar la flora del tracto digestivo y “desplazar” el E.coli. Un sistema inmune sano y el buen funcionamiento del tracto digestivo pueden luchar contra una infección por E. coli, pero eso es otro hecho de la comunidad médica no quiere que sepas. Ellos prefieren que sigáis siendo una víctima indefensa en una cama de hospital, esperando la muerte, sin opciones a su disposición. Esa es “la medicina moderna” para ti. Causa los problemas que pretenden tratar, y después ni siquiera los tratan con todo lo que funciona en primer lugar.

Casi todas las muertes atribuibles hasta ahora a este brote de E. coli son fácilmente evitables. Estas son las muertes por la ignorancia. Pero aún más, también pueden ser las muertes de una nueva era de armas biológicas puestas en los alimentos por un grupo de científicos locos o una institución que forma parte del programa impulsado para despoblar el planeta.

Forensic evidence: European E.coli was bioengineered

NaturalNews.com
June 6, 2011

Even as the veggie blame game is now under way across the EU, where a super resistant strain of e.coli is sickening patients and filling hospitals in Germany, virtually no one is talking about how e.coli could have magically become resistant to eight different classes of antibiotic drugs and then suddenly appeared in the food supply.

This particular e.coli variation is a member of the O104 strain, and O104 strains are almost never (normally) resistant to antibiotics. In order for them to acquire this resistance, they must be repeatedly exposed to antibiotics in order to provide the “mutation pressure” that nudges them toward complete drug immunity.

So if you’re curious about the origins of such a strain, you can essentially reverse engineer the genetic code of the e.coli and determine fairly accurately which antibiotics it was exposed to during its development. This step has now been done (see below), and when you look at the genetic decoding of this O104 strain now threatening food consumers across the EU, a fascinating picture emerges of how it must have come into existence.

The genetic code reveals the history

When scientists at Germany’s Robert Koch Institute decoded the genetic makeup of the O104 strain, they found it to be resistant to all the following classes and combinations of antibiotics:

• penicillins
• tetracycline
• nalidixic acid
• trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazol
• cephalosporins
• amoxicillin / clavulanic acid
• piperacillin-sulbactam
• piperacillin-tazobactam

In addition, this O104 strain posses an ability to produce special enzymes that give it what might be called “bacteria superpowers” known technically as ESBLs:

“Extended-Spectrum Beta-Lactamases (ESBLs) are enzymes that can be produced by bacteria making them resistant to cephalosporins e.g. cefuroxime, cefotaxime and ceftazidime – which are the most widely used antibiotics in many hospitals,” explains the Health Protection Agency in the UK (http://www.hpa.org.uk/Topics/Infect…).

On top of that, this O104 strain possesses two genes — TEM-1 and CTX-M-15 — that “have been making doctors shudder since the 1990s,” reports The Guardian (http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentis…). And why do they make doctors shudder? Because they’re so deadly that many people infected with such bacteria experience critical organ failure and simply die.

Bioengineering a deadly superbug

So how, exactly, does a bacterial strain come into existence that’s resistant to over a dozen antibiotics in eight different drug classes and features two deadly gene mutations plus ESBL enzyme capabilities?

There’s really only one way this happens (and only one way) — you have to expose this strain of e.coli to all eight classes of antibiotics drugs. Usually this isn’t done at the same time, of course: You first expose it to penicillin and find the surviving colonies which are resistant to penicillin. You then take those surviving colonies and expose them to tetracycline. The surviving colonies are now resistant to both penicillin and tetracycline. You then expose them to a sulfa drug and collect the surviving colonies from that, and so on. It is a process of genetic selection done in a laboratory with a desired outcome. This is essentially how some bioweapons are engineered by the U.S. Army in its laboratory facility in Ft. Detrick, Maryland (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nation…).

Although the actual process is more complicated than this, the upshot is that creating a strain of e.coli that’s resistant to eight classes of antibiotics requires repeated, sustained expose to those antibiotics. It is virtually impossible to imagine how this could happen all by itself in the natural world. For example, if this bacteria originated in the food (as we’ve been told), then where did it acquire all this antibiotic resistance given the fact that antibiotics are not used in vegetables?

When considering the genetic evidence that now confronts us, it is difficult to imagine how this could happen “in the wild.” While resistance to a single antibiotic is common, the creation of a strain of e.coli that’s resistant to eight different classes of antibiotics — in combination — simply defies the laws of genetic permutation and combination in the wild. Simply put, this superbug e.coli strain could not have been created in the wild. And that leaves only one explanation for where it really came from: the lab.

Engineered and then released into the wild

The evidence now points to this deadly strain of e.coli being engineered and then either being released into the food supply or somehow escaping from a lab and entering the food supply inadvertently. If you disagree with that conclusion — and you’re certainly welcome to — then you are forced to conclude that this octobiotic superbug (immune to eight classes of antibiotics) developed randomly on its own… and that conclusion is far scarier than the “bioengineered” explanation because it means octobiotic superbugs can simply appear anywhere at any time without cause. That would be quite an exotic theory indeed.

My conclusion actually makes more sense: This strain of e.coli was almost certainly engineered and then released into the food supply for a specific purpose. What would that purpose be? It’s obvious, I hope.

It’s all problem, reaction, solution at work here. First cause a PROBLEM (a deadly strain of e.coli in the food supply). Then wait for the public REACTION (huge outcry as the population is terrorized by e.coli). In response to that, enact your desired SOLUTION (total control over the global food supply and the outlawing of raw sprouts, raw milk and raw vegetables).

That’s what this is all about, of course. The FDA relied on the same phenomenon in the USA when pushing for its recent “Food Safety Modernization Act” which essentially outlaws small family organic farms unless they lick the boots of FDA regulators. The FDA was able to crush farm freedom in America by piggybacking on the widespread fear that followed e.coli outbreaks in the U.S. food supply. When people are afraid, remember, it’s not difficult to get them to agree to almost any level of regulatory tyranny. And making people afraid of their food is a simple matter… a few government press releases emailed to the mainstream media news affiliates is all it takes.

First ban the natural medicine, then attack the food supply

Now, remember: All this is happening on the heels of the EU ban on medicinal herbs and nutritional supplements — a ban that blatantly outlaws nutritional therapies that help keep people healthy and free from disease. Now that all these herbs and supplements are outlawed, the next step is to make people afraid of fresh food, too. That’s because fresh vegetables are medicinal, and as long as the public has the right to buy fresh vegetables, they can always prevent disease.

But if you can make people AFRAID of fresh vegetables — or even outlaw them altogether — then you can force the entire population onto a diet of dead foods and processed foods that promote degenerative disease and bolster the profits of the powerful drug companies.

It’s all part of the same agenda, you see: Keep people sick, deny them access to healing herbs and supplements, then profit from their suffering at the hands of the global drug cartels.

GMOs play a similar role in all this, of course: They’re designed to contaminate the food supply with genetic code that causes widespread infertility among human beings. And those who are somehow able to reproduce after exposure to GMOs still suffer from degenerative disease that enriches the drug companies from “treatment.”

Do you recall which country was targeted in this recent e.coli scare? Spain. Why Spain? You may recall that leaked cables from Wikileaks revealed that Spain resisted the introduction of GMOs into its agricultural system, even as the U.S. government covertly threatened political retaliation for its resistance. This false blaming of Spain for the e.coli deaths is probably retaliation for Spain’s unwillingness to jump on the GMO bandwagon. (http://www.naturalnews.com/030828_G…)

That’s the real story behind the economic devastation of Spain’s vegetable farmers. It’s one of the subplots being pursued alongside this e.coli superbug scheme.

Food as weapons of war – created by Big Pharma?

By the way, the most likely explanation of where this strain of e.coli was bioengineered is that the drug giants came up with it in their own labs. Who else has access to all the antibiotics and equipment needed to manage the targeted mutations of potentially thousands of e.coli colonies? The drug companies are uniquely positioned to both carry out this plot and profit from it. In other words, they have the means and the motive to engage in precisely such actions.

Aside from the drug companies, perhaps only the infectious disease regulators themselves have this kind of laboratory capacity. The CDC, for example, could probably pull this off if they really wanted to.

The proof that somebody bioengineered this e.coli strain is written right in the DNA of the bacteria. That’s forensic evidence, and what it reveals cannot be denied. This strain underwent repeated and prolonged exposure to eight different classes of antibiotics, and then it somehow managed to appear in the food supply. How do you get to that if not through a well-planned scheme carried out by rogue scientists? There is no such thing as “spontaneous mutation” into a strain that is resistant to the top eight classes of brand-name antibiotic drugs being sold by Big Pharma today. Such mutations have to be deliberate.

Once again, if you disagree with this assessment, then what you’re saying is that NO, it wasn’t done deliberately… it happened accidentally! And again, I’m saying that’s even scarier! Because that means the antibiotic contamination of our world is now at such an extreme level of overkill that a strain of e.coli in the wild can be saturated with eight different classes of antibiotics to the point where it naturally develops into its own deadly superbug. If that’s what people believe, then that’s almost a scarier theory than the bioengineering explanation!

A new era has begun: Bioweapons in your food

But in either case — no matter what you believe — the simple truth is that the world is now facing a new era of global superbug strains of bacteria that can’t be treated with any known pharmaceutical. They can all, of course, be readily killed with colloidal silver, which is exactly why the FDA and world health regulators have viciously attacked colloidal silver companies all these years: They can’t have the public getting its hands on natural antibiotics that really work, you see. That would defeat the whole purpose of making everybody sick in the first place.

In fact, these strains of e.coli superbugs can be quite readily treated with a combination of natural full-spectrum antibiotics from plants such as garlic, ginger, onions and medicinal herbs. On top of that, probiotics can help balance the flora of the digestive tract and “crowd out” the deadly e.coli that might happen by. A healthy immune system and well-functioning digestive tract can fight off an e.coli superbug infection, but that’s yet another fact the medical community doesn’t want you to know. They much prefer you to remain a helpless victim lying in the hospital, waiting to die, with no options available to you. That’s “modern medicine” for ya. They cause the problems that they claim to treat, and then they won’t even treat you with anything that works in the first place.

Nearly all the deaths now attributable to this e.coli outbreak are easily and readily avoidable. These are deaths of ignorance. But even more, they may also be deaths from a new era of food-based bioweapons unleashed by either a group of mad scientists or an agenda-driven institution that has declared war on the human population.

Agribusiness: Food Safety’s Greatest Enemy

By Luis R. Miranda
The Real Agenda
May 11, 2011

Misinformed people enjoy calling population growth the menace of the 21st century, especially when it is related to food availability. Although access to food is one of the most important issues that humanity faces today, the “food problem” has everything to do with its safety and nothing to do with the lack of it due to planetary overpopulation. The world has changed in many ways in the last fifty years and many of those changes have been for good, but many important ones for very bad. In the past, most countries produced their own food, and people were food independent. Today, a handful of corporations control the whole process of seed and food production and distribution. When it comes to food supply, perhaps there is a worse consequence than monopolistic practices and policies. Food, which is supposed to provide us with nutrition is actually making us sick and in many cases killing us.

In the United Kingdom, a bacteria called Campylobacter found in chickens causes diarrhea, fever, abdominal pain and cramping. Often times, it worsens and produces chronic, life-threaten­ing, conditions. It is estimated that 85% of the chickens in the UK are infected. Meanwhile, in the United States, the Norovirus, which is transmitted through manipulation of food with dirty hands, as well as Salmonella, that infects people who ingest food with feces, cause vomiting and diarrhea, fever and cramps. These are only two examples of poor food management in what we call the “developed world”. But it gets worse in third world countries, where rules for food safety are less clear or simply ignored by the food industry.

In China, for example, a 2008 case of food contamination with melamine caused the death of six babies and made 300,000 others ill. The contamination occurred when melamine, and industrial chemical got into the milk supply. Back in the “developed world”, Germany had its own case of massive food poisoning with dioxin in some 4,000 farms around the country. A German company sold 200,000 tones of animal feed contaminated with dioxins and this feed was given to thousands of animals. Dioxins are poisons that cause cancer.

Although there is not a formal process to record food poisoning cases and other health threats carried around by tainted food, the data made available shows that food contamination is a common affair in most nations. Even countries that manage to have their own system to keep food clean from chemicals and natural born bacteria and viruses cannot avoid massive cases of poisoning among its citizens. In Singapore, 3 million people die every year as a result of food poisoning.

Unsafe to Eat

A recent assessment issued by GRAIN, an international non-profit organisation that reports on food safety issues around the world and whether a crop is suitable to eat or not, described a series of reasons to consider when determining food safety. “Bad practices (poor hygiene, animal abuse, reliance on antibiotics and pesticides), unproven or risky technologies (ge­netic modification, nanotechnology, irradiation, cloning), deliberate contamination (such as tampering), or just poor supervision” are just a few of the reasons why food arrives contaminated to your table. That is why a relevant matter with food safety has to do with the size of the corporations that produce the things we all eat. It is a fact that the industrialized food scheme that governs food production and distribution is the main cause of today’s food pollution. It all comes to size. If a small producer of meat or vegetables provides contaminated food, the impact is small, but if a large company that produces and distributes food all around the world manages its processes badly, the result is more often than not, thousands of people ill and many others dying as a consequence of tainted food.

Big scale production and distribution is one of the main causes of massive food poisoning. Not only are standards more difficult to enforce when a company produces large amounts of packed meat or grains, but also it is likely those companies are not as concerned with enforcing practices that guarantee good hygiene and work security, for example. The quantity of product that enters and exits a meat packing plant or a grain processing facility makes it almost impossible to keep an eye on every single item that circulates in and out. The policies that govern large producing units are to receive, pack and send out as much of the product as possible.

Where are the regulators?

In one sentence, government regulators are usually in bed with Big Corp. It is not realistic to believe that bureaucrats who oversee food safety are simply unaware of problems with the production and distribution of food, although that is usually the excuse given by them and the government to justify their inaction. There is plenty of proof that both government agencies and corporations are continuously colluding to avoid enforcing the laws that protect consumers. Almost every new law passed regarding food safety opens a new door for the food industry to untie a regulation and produce food their own way. Take for example the case of raw milk. Milk is processed through pasteurization and homogenization literally everywhere. Countries that have not banned the sale and consumption of raw milk are currently working on legislation to do it. Milk processing is needed, governments and corporations say, to avoid the ingestion of bacteria that may exist in the milk when it is raw. However, it is also true that milk pasteurization and homogenization simply kills all nutrients that natural raw milk has. Did anyone say calcium deficiency pandemic? Osteoporosis? There is a pill to solve those problems of course.

Raw milk is one of the most important sources of nutrition for poor folks around the world. It is one of a few affordable sources of nutrition and it can be easily boiled at home to guarantee its safety. So why are governments enforcing laws or regulations that ban raw milk? They are effectively creating and imposing regulations sent to them by the World Trade Organization, an institution that works for the international food cartel that controls most of the production and distribution of food. Other reasons commonly given to justify banning the sale of raw milk is the idea that it will help modernize the dairy industry, which in turn will bring benefits because the companies will be able to compete with others that import and export milk and other products. None of this is true. The real reason is that countries affiliated to the WTO are mandated to adhere to its regulations if they want to have a chance to participate in so called Free Trade Agreements. Free Trade Agreements are tools used by the corporations to amass control over most if not all productive activities. Truly, food safety policies have little to do with public health and everything to do with complete control of market, monopolies, profits and dominance.

Free Trade Agreements are the materialization of monopolistic controls executed by multilateral organizations on behalf of Big Corp. The negotiation rounds that are held often within a country or at the WTO’s headquarters regarding food production, are dealt with as matters of commerce and not as issues related to science or food accessibility. Around the world, corporations dictate more and more what is allowed as a practice for food production and manipulation and what isn’t. GRAIN cites the cases of companies that feed cows with animal parts as a way to provide protein to them. This practice in many cases leads to Mad Cow Disease, but it is still permitted in countries like the Unites States and Japan. Another case is that of ractopamine, a substance given to pigs to promote their growth. This element is added to their feed. In a rare siding with food safety, even countries like China and whole regions like the European Union, that together produce around 70 percent of the world’s supply of pork, banned its use in meat. Other countries like the U.S. continue to use ractopamine in the feed given to pigs, turkeys, chickens and cows. The U.S. government not only allows its use but often times defends the producer of ractopamine, Eli Lilly and its meat exports from being banned in countries with whom it has trade agreements. Not only are American consumers being contaminated with this chemical, but also every person in every country that accepts American pork, beef, turkey and chickens.

Free Trade Agreements as Tools to Impose Corporate Regulations

In the last 3 decades, Free Trade Agreements have become the default tool used by Big Corp and enabled by the World Trade Organization and the World Health Organization to enforce their rules and carry out their game. It all began back in the 80’s with negotiations known as GATT. Later came the free trade agreements between Europe and Latin American countries and others between North America and Latin American countries such as ALCA, CAFTA and NAFTA. Contained in those agreements are all kinds of tricks written by the corporations to definitely manipulate and control markets. This is so, because there are few restrictions as related to what can be commercialized. The goal that all the previous negotiations had in common was that they promoted the exchange of the cheapest goods at the lowest prices. This would be positive if it wasn’t because cheap goods mean contaminated food, endless abuses to labor laws and laborers and the conquest of global markets by a few corporations that now decide what is produced, sold, bought, tariffed, quotaed, and who want to “protect” everything, including what is not theirs, against “theft” by using absurd intellectual property laws that are attached to all trade agreements.

Free Trade Agreements have nothing to do with free trade, benefiting consumers or enabling the growth of small or mid-size farmers. What the corporations that control governments around the world want is a free pass to invade all markets and produce everything we eat and use, so everyone else but them is dependent on products made across the world for their survival. As GRAIN cites it, free trade agreements are mechanisms to create backdoors used to limit market access. These agreements do nothing to promote or guarantee food safety or public health, but to assure the corporations unlimited growth and gigantic profit margins. Companies achieve market monopolies by creating policies that although inexplicably ridiculous, are accepted as the standard around the world. These policies are adapted to limit fair competition in every country in a way that only those countries where the big corporations run or have an interest in, are allowed to actually exchange anything.

The European Union banned Indian fish imports because the producers did not comply with European rules such as that fish processing facilities had to be sanitized with potable water, even though India lacks the infrastructure to provide clean water to most of its population. In Tanzania, fishermen had the same experience. They used to get 80 percent of their income from Europe, but after the E.U. banned their product, the fishermen had no market for it. Uganda also suffered a similar outcome. The Ugandan case cost the country $40 million in loses. So how did Europe manage to eat fish? Corporations such as Pescanova moved into Africa and began to serve the european market. Once it installed itself in the continent, the company acquired the whole production and distribution business.

The Case for Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO)

What could be more unsafe to eat than genetically modified organisms that have been proven, time after time, to be harmful to humans and animals. Regardless of conclusive evidence that GMO’s are dangerous to our health, government agencies around the world continue to authorize the use of genetically modified ingredients in the food supply. Not only that, they also refuse to label the products that contain GMO’s alleging it is unfair to the companies that manufacture them and that it may actually be confusing for consumers. In the case of GMO salmon, for example, the pro GMO industry says salmon should not be labeled because their product is identical to the wild salmon. The same is true for other products such as corn, soy, milk and vegetables. The thought that a well informed consumer is the best tool for strong businesses just doesn’t do it anymore for Big Corp. As far as they are concerned, a pool of consumers with the least information possible, is the best scenario to carry out their business practices. A diplomatic cable revealed by Wikileaks details how the Bush administration pressured the government of France to ease their concerns about genetically modified organisms. The cable read:

“we calibrate a target retaliation list that causes some pain across the EU since this [acceptance of GMOs] is a collective responsibility, but that also focuses in part on the worst culprits “. The list should be measured rather than vicious and must be sustainable over the long term, since we should not expect an early victory”.

This push to impose the use of genetically modified organisms is a clear example of how Big Corp exercises its control of governments so giants like Monsanto, DuPont, ConAgra, Cargill and other biotechnology corpo­rations have no interruptions in countries that may want to ban GM seeds or foods, or require labels that inform consum­ers. Along with France, the corporations that control the United States government also mine the sovereignty of third world countries that have no say over the safety practices utilized in the production, import and export of food crops in their own land. As it happens in developed countries, third world nations are also ordered to “relax” their opposition to GMO’s and to eliminate any “exageration” of the risks that come with the use and consumption of GMO’s. With the creation and implementation of Codex Alimentarius, Big Corp has been strengthened even more. The set of regulations contained in the Codex Alimentarius documents make it clear that neither the corporations nor the transnational agencies that govern food safety and global health are interested in healthy humans or safe food. In fact, it is through Codex Alimentarius that the corporations intend to control the natural foods and supplement markets, by banning natural food production and commercialization and substituting it with laboratory created pharmaceutical products labeled as “natural supplements”.

Codex Alimentarius is the United Nations and World Health Organization’s FrankenScience to push Restrictions on what you are allowed to eat. Since the 1960´s there is a concerted effort not only to limit the choices we as consumers and human beings have in order to take care of our health, but also to restrict the access to food itself as we know it. Codex Alimentarius (Codex for short) means “Food Code.” This world food code is a United Nations agency, jointly sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). It has existed for nearly 50 years and its international statute gives it a joint mission: protecting food safety and promoting world food trade. It is supposed to do so by adopting voluntary guidelines and standards (defining foods in international trade) and its decisions are enforced through the World Trade Organization (WTO) which considers its guidelines and standards as presumptive evidence in WTO trade disputes. It has become a creature of the Bigs – Big Govt, Big Agra, Big Pharma… etc.

In order to understand what Codex Alimentarius is, one needs to know it has nothing to do with consumer protection as its charter says. Such statement is just a catchy phrase to have the people and the nations approve its implementation. “Codex Alimentarius” means “food rules” in Latin. The plan was born in 1962 when the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) was founded by the U.N. to supposedly facilitate trade relations. In reality, it was created to regulate and control the way in which food and nutrition are guided and how products are sold to people. It is indeed all about the profits of multi-national corporations. The relation is very simple: the more natural products people use, the less profits the pharmaceutical corporations make. Codex Alimentarius was created to protect Big Pharma´s profits through the elimination of natural health products and treatments. What is more alarming at this point is that Codex was approved on December 31st, 2009. After this plan was signed, it was mandated on all member countries through its approval by Congresses around the world; a lot like the Copenhagen Treaty.

Superbugs within Big Corp

Superbugs are bacteria that developed an ability to fight antibiotics. Examples of superbugs first appeared in Europe in the 60’s and since then they spread freely around the world. In the United States, deaths from the MRSA superbug infections reached 17,000 in 2005. A survey conducted in 2007 found that ST398, a new version of MRSA, was present in 39% of pigs and 81% of local piggeries in the Netherlands. Further research has found that MRSA is in at least two thirds of the farms located in E.U. member countries. In studies conducted around Europe, researchers found that Spain and Germany were two of the countries with the highest incidence of MRSA in their farms; with over 40% of pigs testing positive for MRSA. That is why it does not come as a surprise that the Europeans send most of their pork meat overseas. According to the University of Guelph, a study of pigs in Ontario, Canada, showed that ST398 was present in a quarter of local pigs, and one-fifth of the pig farmers that were tested.

A Superbug’s ability to resist antibiotics, as it happens with humans, occurs due to the heavy use of this product in animals. According to the Union for Concerned Scientists, livestock in the United States consume about 80 percent of the antibiotics that are sold in that country. Meanwhile, in China the number ascends to 50 percent of the animals. A report from February 2011 on the Sydney Morning Herald reveals that in Germany, livestock are given three times more antibiotics than the amount humans consume. The existence and spread of antibiotic resistant bacteria in the so called factory farms is the main cause of food poisoning cases, which are spurred by the use of antibiotics that are fed to animals.

The Walmartization of Food

If Monsanto, ConAgra, Cargill and other bio-tech giants are known for their desire to conquer the seed and food market, Walmart may be seen as their equivalent when it comes to the supermarket fad. Food that is delivered to most places today goes directly through and depends on the connections made by big chain supermarkets. Long gone are the days when the producer himself went out to sell his apples, bananas, pineapples or carrots. Today, transnational companies like Walmart and Carrefour control the supply of food to most areas of the planet. This corporations not only transport and distribute the food we eat, but also decide what is produced and what is not, where the products go, when they are shipped and what prices they will have when you grab them from your local supermarket shelf. Large supermarket chains indeed control global food markets.

Walmart’s annual sales reach $405 billion, which is more than the gross domestic product of nations like Argentina, Norway, Greece and Denmark. The corporate success that this number represents has prompted more supermarket chains to put their eyes in regions of the world they can exploit either as a production spot, usually by monopolizing the production and distribution of food, or by securing the purchase of food that is produced cheaply and under their own guidelines. Big retailers like Tesco, Walmart, Carrefour and Lotte are currently acquiring or negotiating their operations in India, China, Brazil and Indonesia. These and other third world nations that still rely on the traditional door to door, street fair sale of food staples, co-ops and local or regional wholesalers for the nutrition of their population. What the big chain supermarkets want to do is go in and cheaply buy their way into those markets by signing contracts with producers, distributors and local supermarkets so they can control the food production and distribution. Once they manage to absorb the markets, Big Corp chains impose their own models and establish the same standards and rules they mandated everywhere else. The direct and immediate consequence of this practice is the start of a new line of dependent consumers who will no longer be able to plant, pick or sell their food. Dependence is the name of the game.

As if one hungry supermarket chain wasn’t bad enough for the consumer, these large corporations also work as a cartel. They meet and define what the standards for the industry will be so that they continue to be what they are and continue to control it all. As Barry Harper puts it in his book “Breaking the chain: the antitrust case against Wal-Mart”, the power and size of the corporations are two of the many weapons they have to influence the global food system. Imagine what they can accomplish when working together against a country, a local supermarket in a third world nation or a small farmer. These companies simply have the power and ability to tell suppliers, farmers and food processors what the rules of the game are going to be. The power that food corporations have is so significant that governments are capable of putting their profit making scheme first, and the health of the people second, when it comes to food safety. An example of this is the ban the United States imposed on Mexican cantaloupes due to contamination with Salmonella in 2002. After a round of negotiations between the governments of both countries, which of course counted with the participation of Big Corp, the ban was lifted after a new “program” attached to a new bureaucracy was created. The creation of this new set of rules did nothing to guarantee the safety of the cantaloupes, because the farmers did not provide toilet facilities or water analyses as the new program requested. In fact 94 percent of the farms did not have portable toilets and 88 percent of them used water from rivers to supply their plantations.

Doing away with the local farmer

The agro-colonization of the world by a handful of corporations seems to have the same common denominator everywhere: the disappearance of the farmer. Supermarket giants have many ways to force themselves into new markets, or to increase their share of those markets. The invasion of Big Corp supermarkets in the southern hemisphere converted developing countries in sources of food for the rest of the world and in many cases made those very same regions dependent on big chain supermarket’s capacity and willingness to supply food to them. Because large supermarket chains have the prerogative to decide how much they pay for the food they buy, the standards producers must follow, the delivery timetables, the distribution procedures and so on, it is easy for them to manipulate local, regional and national markets. But when they don’t get their way, supermarkets are capable of importing fruit and vegetables from across the planet in order to drive small or mid-size competitors off the market. Many times, large supermarket chains use false advertising in order to maintain or increase the flow of customers to their shops. For example, when Walmart invaded Central America by purchasing local food chains, the company decided to maintain their original names due to the fact Walmart was already known in those places for its bad reputation abroad.

What this kind of falsehood allows is to keep controlling the demand and supply of food using different names. This practice gives large chains enough time to settle down and absorb more customers until they decide to reveal themselves. But controlling food markets is not only about window dressing. Large supermarket chains don’t even have to establish themselves in a country in order to control the food supply. So called partnerships with producers and distributors can be established from abroad so the food business is monopolized from within. A whole city or country may experience lack of rice or beans, for example, not because they aren’t available, but because they are stored in large supermarket bodegas where they await to be shipped overseas to whomever pays the price the supermarkets want. How does this practice affect farmers? Although the price farmers receive for their grains, fruit or vegetables may be considered fair at some point, in many cases those same farmers could have obtained better yields if they had sold them to local buyers instead of selling to the large supermarkets. The artificial scarcity that food corporations cause by storing food until someone decides to pay what they want is what causes price speculation, which in turn makes it more difficult for more people to feed themselves and their families. In addition, some farmers are held hostage to promises of future purchases while they wait to receive payment for current or older sales to the big chain supermarkets.

In many countries of Asia and Latin America, farmers do not have the cash to start a new planting season because the payment they received does not meet the new costs; and if it does, there is little money left as profit. When the large supermarket chains are not the ones exploiting local farmers, the local supermarket chains take on that role. The tough competition national or regional chains get when fighting against transnational corporations for a share of the market, turns local, regional and national supermarkets into the predators. Competition is such that the national companies that were business partners in the past, suddenly adopt Big Corp’s model and transform the farmers in a group of agro-colonized workers. This is the case with ShopRite of South Africa and DMA in Brazil.

In China, where supermarkets are expanding at a furious pace, these trends are biting hard. The major supermarket chains, both foreign and domestic, are working hand-in-glove with suppliers and local governments to develop farms to supply fruit and vegetables. As part of a drive to im­prove food safety and integrate its 700 million small-scale farmers into “high value food chains” with “scientific methods of farming”, the Chinese government has been pursuing the establishment of fruit- and vegetable-growing bases in partnership with the private sector. In each of these des­ignated production zones, local authorities negotiate deals with private companies whereby the company comes in, leases an area of land from the farmers currently occupying it, or acquires their land use rights, and then sets up large-scale production, hiring the displaced farmers as la­bourers or in contract production arrangements.- Food Safety Briefing

We don’t have to eat the way Big Corp says

The movement to firmly reject the current food safety policies and the corporate business model that is imposed on consumers is a reason for hope. United States produced meat is not accepted by people in Taiwan, Australia, Japan or South Ko­rea. The melamine intoxication in China woke up thousands of others in that country and millions outside the chinese land to reject melamine contaminated milk. In all of Latin America, Europe and some parts of the United States there are growing loud voices that ques­tion the current industrial system used to produce, distribute and sell food. The cases of food poisoning with Salmonella, mad cow disease, superbugs and genetically modified organisms spurred the creation and growth of grassroots groups that are becoming the guardians of food safety and that call for better agricultural practices that replace the current agro-colonial policies created by Big Corp and enabled by corrupt governments and international organizations. In Korea, the people’s resistance towards U.S. Beef resulted in massive questioning of their supposed representative democracy. In Oceania, Australians campaign to regain control of their food system as more people find out more and more consumers share their desire to manage their lifestyle, which of course includes their food supply. As for GMO, the number of citizen groups around the world are as numerous and diverse as the cultures they represent.

One, however, seems to be the common goal of most of these groups: overcoming the social, economic, health and environmental challenges that the industrial food system model has brought upon the populations. More co-ops of organic, locally grown food are appearing even in developed countries, where Big Corp has a strong handle on the food market. Local groups continue to organize campaigns to expose the dangers of genetically modified organisms, industrially produced pork, beef and turkey. Supermarkets that adopt a more environmentally friendly approach to agriculture, farms and farmers are attracting more customers. But perhaps more important than all of this is the fact that more people now understand that food independence is one of the main goals anyone should pursue. New educational campaigns are launched explaining the concept of food sovereignty and the right of the people to healthy food. One of the keys to food independence and safe environmental practices is to avoid agricultural models that promote the plantation and commercialization of one single crop, such as soy, corn, sugar and others. Food diversity in naturally fertilized soils is what proves to be the most effective model to guarantee that there will be food available for anyone who needs it. The creation and promotion of local associations or cooperatives that employ local workers for the cultivation and harvest of locally grown fruits, vegetables and meat continue to yield the best results for people around the world. Local food production is the only way to guarantee safety, fair prices and food availability that has the potential to end with hunger anywhere and everywhere.
