Creating Waves of Awareness
A 109 pages STUDY released by the Hungarian Government:
2011 April 11
Hungary became the first country to ensure its people’s “material and mental health” by guaranteeing “an agriculture free of genetically modified organisms” in its new Fundamental Law (complete English version).
World's 2nd Fundamental Law was created in Hungary by Hungarians (the 1st Fundamental Law was created in Iceland in 706).
2011 July 1
Hajdú-Bihar County, Hungary.
The Central Agricultural Office of Hungary ordered an immediate repeal of 470 hectares of GMO corn after they found GMO contamination in several specimens.
Latest shameful news from the EU - 2012.06.27
The GE soy can currently be imported but not grown in the EU. But as a new legal dossier prepared on behalf of Testbiotech shows, the authorization as planned would violate existing EU law because residues remaining in the plants from spraying with the herbicide were not taken into account during risk assessment. Furthermore, EFSA does not foresee monitoring possible health effects from these residues although required to do so by EU law, according to Testbiotech. Read more HERE.
Sign the open letter to Members of the European Parliament and Euro... about 'No patents on plants and animals!'
'Clear and effective prohibitions from patentability are largely missing from the present legal framework. Existing prohibitions concerning patents on plants and animals can be easily circumvented, as shown by many decisions of the EPO. For example, patents on gene sequences and breeding processes are easily extended to plants and animal varieties.'
The EU is moving on this serious topic, finally. Hope that it's not their trick. The GMO crops isn't something that people should leave as it is. It's DANGEROUS on our health and to the future of all those who consume Genetically Modified Food. Its impact shows itself not immediately. Different and very complicated digestive maladies, diseases that influence the nervous system and most of all, serious auto immune diseases, which evolve by inheritance from parents to children. It's similar to Legacy Code i.e. a program code that is not maintained/repaired. It is a clear cut that this is the forcing-bed of sick, weak mankind.
Just a note to this complex and very serious issue:
There is a link in the Reference Links called: " GMO Compass - Genetically Modified Food and Feed in the EU ". No Mistake, you will find out that GMOs are in the food and feed products, which could be purchased in the EU countries. On this page you can see what EU speaks out isn't covering the whole story i.e. it's controversial. Those who already allowed the implementation of these dangerous GMOs are playing with edged tools and most scaring in this story is that the GMOs Manufacturers and their Business Entities as well as the different countries' legislators can face with a serious crippling of Life that can easily get out their hands (control).
For years back now more and more bees died and still dying. The result of deadly chemicals (fungicides but primarily pesticides for agricultural use and the very new (not the old one) satellite radio technology, the pollution altogether causing the unimaginable death rates. The pollination of plants by bees seems has been solved by those arrogant and senseless corporations. What can we do? Many of you, and it's quite normal, have no idea. How could a man who proved it the past 400 or more years that can only destroy Life give back this precious gift of God, Life??!?! Genetics?!?!?! I would not count on this. Nobody but the Maker God alone can create Life. The reason behind His creations is pursuant and without any side-effects or harms. GEs and GMOs are like folderol. One can do it in very professional ways that seems useful or necessary but nonsense will be nonsense. World today needs strenuous people who speak out with loving care, who feel responsibility for Life, for every word they say, for every thought arises in their heads and for their every acts.
10 reasons why we DON'T NEED GM food (on banGMfood)!
Genetically modifed (GM) foods are often promoted as a way to feed the world. But this is little short of a confdence trick. Far from needing more GM foods, there are urgent reasons why we need to ban them altogether.
1. GM foods won’t solve the food crisis
A 2008 World Bank report concluded that increased biofuel production is the major cause of the increase in food prices.
Biofuels are crops grown for fuel rather than food. GM giant Monsanto has been at the heart of the lobbying for biofuels – while profting enormously from the resulting food crisis and using it as a PR opportunity to promote GM foods!
“The climate crisis was used to boost biofuels, helping to create the food crisis; and now the food crisis is being used to revive the fortunes of the GM industry.” – Daniel Howden, Africa correspondent, The Independent (UK).
“The cynic in me thinks that they’re just using the current food crisis and the fuel crisis as a springboard to push GM crops back on to the public agenda. I understand why they’re doing it, but the danger is that if they’re making these claims about GM crops solving the problem of drought or feeding the world, that’s b...s..t.” – Prof Denis Murphy, head of biotechnology, University of Glamorgan, Wales.
2. GM crops do not increase yield potential
Despite the promises, GM has not increased the yield potential of any commercialized crops. In fact, studies show that the most widely grown GM crop, GM soya, has suffered reduced yields. A report that analyzed nearly two decades worth of peer reviewed research on the yield of the primary GM food/feed crops, soybeans and corn (maize), reveals that despite 20 years of research and 13 years of commercialization, genetic engineering has failed to significantly increase US crop yields. The author, former US EPA and US FDA biotech specialist Dr Gurian-Sherman, concludes that when it comes to yield, “Traditional breeding outperforms genetic engineering hands down.”
“Let’s be clear. As of this year (2008), there are no commercialized GM crops that inherently increase yield. Similarly, there are no GM crops on the market that were engineered to resist drought, reduce fertilizer pollution or save soil. Not one.” – Dr Doug Gurian-Sherman.
3. GM crops increase pesticide use
US government data shows that in the US, GM crops have produced an overall increase, not decrease, in pesticide use compared to conventional crops.
“The promise was that you could use less chemicals and produce a greater yield. But let me tell you none of this is true.” – Bill Christison, President of the US National Family Farm Coalition.
4. There are better ways to feed the world
A major UN/World Bank-sponsored report compiled by 400 scientists and endorsed by 58 countries concluded that GM crops have little to offer global agriculture and the challenges of poverty, hunger, and climate change, because better alternatives are available. In particular, the report championed “agroecological” farming as the sustainable way forward for developing countries.
5. Other farm technologies are more successful
Integrated Pest Management and other innovative low-input or organic methods of controlling pests and boosting yields have proven highly effective, particularly in the developing world. Other plant breeding technologies, such as Marker Assisted Selection (non-GM genetic mapping), are widely expected to boost global agricultural productivity more effectively and safely than GM.
6. GM foods have not been shown to be safe to eat
Genetic modification is a crude and imprecise way of incorporating foreign genetic material (e.g. from viruses, bacteria) into crops, with unpredictable consequences. The resulting GM foods have undergone little rigorous and no long-term safety testing. However, animal feeding tests have shown that GM foods have toxic effects, including abnormal changes in organs, immune system disturbances, accelerated aging, and changes in gene expression. Very few studies have been published on the direct effects on humans of eating a GM food. One such study found unexpected effects on gut bacteria, but was never followed up.
It is claimed that Americans have eaten GM foods for years with no ill effects. But these foods are unlabeled in the US and no one has monitored the consequences. With other novel foods like trans fats, it has taken decades to realize that they have caused millions of premature deaths.
“We are confronted with the most powerful technology the world has ever known, and it is being rapidly deployed with almost no thought whatsoever to its consequences.” – Dr Suzanne Wuerthele, US, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) toxicologist.
7. People don’t want GM foods - so they’re hidden in animal feed economic disaster for farmers
A 2009 report showed that GM seed prices in America have increased dramatically, compared to non-GM and organic seeds, cutting average farm incomes for US farmers growing GM crops. The report concluded, “At the present time there is a massive disconnect between the sometimes lofty rhetoric from those championing biotechnology as the proven path toward global food security and what is actually happening on farms in the US that have grown dependent on GM seeds and are now dealing with the consequences.”
8. GM crops are a long-term
“The quiet revolution is happening in gene mapping, helping us understand crops better. That is up and running and could have a far greater impact on agriculture than GM.” – Prof John Snape, head of the department of crop genetics, John Innes Centre.
9. GM and non-GM cannot co-exist
GM contamination of conventional and organic food is increasing. An unapproved GM rice that was grown for only one year in field trials was found to have extensively contaminated the US rice supply and seed stocks. In Canada, the organic oilseed rape industry has been destroyed by contamination from GM rape. In Spain, a study found that GM maize “has caused a drastic reduction in organic cultivations of this grain and is making their coexistence practically impossible”.
The time has come to choose between a GM-based, or a non-GM-based, world food supply.
“If some people are allowed to choose to grow, sell and consume GM foods, soon nobody will be able to choose food, or a biosphere, free of GM. It’s a one way choice, like the introduction of rabbits or cane toads to Australia; once it’s made, it can’t be reversed.” – Roger Levett, specialist in sustainable development.
As a spokesperson for Asgrow, a subsidiary of Monsanto, said, “If you put a label on genetically engineered food, you might as well put a skull and crossbones on it.” The GM industry has got around the problem of consumer rejection of GM foods by hiding them in animal feed. Meat, eggs and dairy products from animals raised on the millions of tons of GM feed imported into Europe do not have to be labeled. Some studies show that contrary to GM and food industry claims, animals raised on GM feed ARE different from those raised on non-GM feed. Other studies show that if GM crops are fed to animals, GM material can appear in the resulting products and affect the animals’ health. So eating these “stealth GMOs” may affect the health of consumers.
10. We can’t trust GM companies
The big biotech firms pushing their GM foods have a terrible history of toxic contamination and public deception. GM is attractive to them because it gives them patents that allow monopoly control over the world’s food supply. They have taken to harassing and intimidating farmers for the “crime” of saving patented seed or “stealing” patented genes – even if those genes got into the farmer’s fields through accidental contamination by wind or insects.
“Farmers are being sued for having GMOs on their property that they did not buy, do not want, will not use and cannot sell.” – Tom Wiley, North Dakota farmer.

What is in the Bible about corruption?
2 Peter 2:19
They promise them freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption. For whatever overcomes a person, to that he is enslaved.
I know your works, your toil and your patient endurance, and how you cannot bear with those who are evil, but have tested those who call themselves apostles and are not, and found them to be false.
How can you say, 'We are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us'? But behold, the lying pen of the scribes has made it into a lie.
Moses commanded the Levites who carried the ark of the covenant of the Lord, "Take this Book of the Law and put it by the side of the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, that it may be there for a witness against you. For I know how rebellious and stubborn you are. Behold, even today while I am yet alive with you, you have been rebellious against the Lord. How much more after my death! Assemble to me all the elders of your tribes and your officers, that I may speak these words in their ears and call heaven and earth to witness against them. For I know that after my death you will surely act corruptly and turn aside from the way that I have commanded you. And in the days to come evil will befall you, because you will do what is evil in the sight of the Lord, provoking him to anger through the work of your hands.
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good. The LORD looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.
The LORD saw how great man's wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time.
1 Cor 2:4-5
My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit's power, so that your faith might not rest on men's wisdom, but on God's power.
"When (the Spirit) comes, He will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment:"
Ryrie: The Spirit will help break down the indifference of the typical pagan who has no conviction of sin, who holds a low regard for righteousness, and who pays no heed to warnings of the coming judgment.
The mainstays of his empire were Babel, Erech and Accad (Akkad), all of them in the land of Shinar.
Here he comes now: a single chariot, a pair of horses; He calls out and says, 'Fallen, fallen is Babylon, And all the images of her gods are smashed to the ground
1 Peter 5:13
The chosen one (feminine - ekklesia) at Babylon sends you greeting, as does Mark, my son.
A second angel followed, saying: "Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, that made all the nations drink the wine of her licentious passion."
He cried out in a mighty voice: "Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great. She has become a haunt for demons. She is a cage for every unclean spirit, a cage for every unclean bird, (a cage for every unclean) and disgusting (beast).
" Jesus said, 'For judgment I have come into this world, so that those who do not see may gain their sight, and the ones who see may become blind.' Some of the Pharisees who were with him heard this and asked him, 'We are not blind too, are we?' Jesus replied, 'If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin, but now because you claim that you can see, your guilt remains. '”
Corruption is mentioned even in VEDAS.
"Let noble thoughts come to us from all sides." R.V. 1-89-1
Sama Veda 179 and 913 describes "corruption" as hydra headed, having nine heads (nine kinds) and it enters the human body through ninety nine sources i.e. nine kind of corruption enters through five senses, five sense organs and outward looking mind (9X11==99).
Later Ramayana described this evil through nine corrupt heads of Ravana. We burn his nine corrupt heads every year on Dussehra day. Similarly later Mahabharata described 99 sources of entry of corruption through 99 corrupt sons of blind Kaurva king Dhritrashtra. 99 vritras (powers of evil) are mentioned in Rig Veda 1-84-13. It further says in 1-104-3 taking bribe for money belonging to the state is misappropriation of public funds. All bribe takers are thieves of God and they get rebirth in the foulest of the womb (confirmed even in Bhagavad-Gita).
R.V 3-34-6 and Yajur Veda 30-22, the corrupt people should not be allowed by the ruler to mix with people following chatvar varnasharam (four divine professions). Y.V 30-19 and R.V 5-61-8 mention that those persons who praise and justify are also corrupt persons, keep away from them. R.V 1-42-4 even mentions keep away from Gurus (preceptors) who take donations/charity.
Causes of Corruption
Corruption creeps in society when the matter is considered as inert and the members of society do not find any sin in treating the benign mother earth as a quarry. In Rig Vedas spirit of God is in the "shunya" (cosmic void) of each sub atomic particle of atom- the building block of matter. Hence the matter has unsuspected vitality and its use on need based living is virtue and its excessive use is a sin. Corruption creeps in a society where economics (artha) is based on inert matter and the possession of wealth/any kind of matter having predominance of tamasik guna of stupor is considered as a matter of pride.
Rig Veda further says that purpose of human birth is to assist the ineffable and formless God who is also Supreme Architect (Viswakarma) in the maintenance of His grand and wondrous Design. For the maintenance of this Design, He has created Rta- eternal cosmic laws of necessity and wants all human beings to follow the same. Having created these eternal laws of nature "He Himself" follows them sternly lest a great harm is done to the cosmic creation. Thus He and His Laws (Rta) are the same. When the individuals in any society starts ignoring these laws available to human beings through the Book of Nature (which even blind individuals can read), corruption creeps in society.
R.V 10-34-13 also says that any kind of gambling particularly the game of dice is also cause of corruption. The vehement effect of this evil of the game of dice was described in Mahabharata. Corruption destroys all the noble attributes of human beings due to pursuit of only material knowledge bereft of spiritual and divine knowledge, which in Vedas is ignorance/nescience/ajnan. (R.V 1-129-6). Only harmonized divine, spiritual and material knowledge is true knowledge (Janan) in Vedas.
Start of Corruption
Rig Veda says when even one human being dies of starvation, it is a signal that corruption has crept in society and avarnas (followers of non divine professions) who want honour, power and wealth for themselves have started multiplying. In Kaliyuga (Dark Age) their number far exceeds the followers of divine professions (varnas). Ethics and community welfare becomes the greatest casualty.
Rig Veda says the thieves of God (bribe givers/takers) who consider matter as inert become insensitive to hydra headed corruption and resort to ostentatious worship and donations/gift culture to gain social recognition. Most of them drift from darkness to utter darkness through meditation (Isa Upanishad and Yajur Veda).
The various virtuous concepts like iddm nan mmam nothing for self all for society akin to enlightened liberalism of Aristotle, moderation of Vedas/middle path of Buddha and the noble concept of illusion of comfort in the vast turbulent sea of matter (Vedic Phantasmagoria-Cosmic delusion MAYA) are no longer considered as virtue in the materialistic corrupt society dominated by avarna, vritras, kimidin etc.
In India this evil of corruption is now becoming Leviathan and giant demon and is spreading like wild fire. The guide lines given by the wise metaphysicists (rsis of yore) and wandering sages (munies of the Vedic period) can help in arresting this nefarious and extremely dangerous drift. Kautilya in his socio-political treatise Arthashastra (partly based on Vedic metaphysics) clearly says the evil of corruption spreads faster when the state gives lip sympathy to curb corruption in the guise of promoting honesty.

An Article in Hungarian Language
P E T I T I O N S
On January 27, 2011 the USDA announced that they fully deregulated genetically engineered Alfalfa (GE Alfalfa). This means that the US farmers are allowed to plant this new GE crop this spring. Crops rarely stay within their designated area. Bees and other pollinators carry GE plants' pollen to other fields, spreading it to organic and non-GE crop varieties. Once these organic varieties carry altered genes, they can no longer be considered organic. This is a problem for organic alfalfa farmers themselves or dairy producers because beef and dairy cattle rely on organic alfalfa as a feedstock. This way GE alfalfa will certainly cripple the organic food industry. However, we can stop this selfish nightmare if we speak out in this topic and/or sign petitions and spread the news for Taking Actions Globally to stop Monsanto's activities.
To collect all PETITIONS IN ONE PLACE in this topic, we created the "Protect the Earth" Group. You can visit the group by clicking HERE. We welcome your valuable inputs both in this blog or in the Protect the Earth Group as well as across the HWC.

Claudia Knecht provided two initiations in this topic. The League for Natural Medicine calls (savenaturalhealth) on the European Commission to stop the Traditional Herbal Medicinal Products Directive (THMPD), Directive 2004/24/EC, which abridges the rights of each European citizen to self-determination in managing health.
Yet another website from the EU that also takes very seriously this whole issue. They have useful flyers for practitioners for download, which are regularly updated.

The OCA deals with crucial issues of food safety, industrial agriculture, genetic engineering, children's health, corporate accountability, Fair Trade, environmental sustainability and other key topics.
The organizations behind No Patents On Seeds are especially concerned about increasing number of patents on plants, seeds and farm animals and their impact on farmers, breeders, innovation and biodiversity.
"Scientific inventions and ideas shape the future. As science becomes ever more beset by commercial and ideological pressures, there is now an urgent need for scientific reporting and analysis from an independent, expert, public interest perspective."
