Genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) are a broad group of plants, animals, and bacteria that are engineered for a wide variety of applications ranging from agricultural production to scientific research. The types of potential hazards posed by GMO’s vary according to the type of organism being modified and its intended application. Most of the concern surrounding GMO’s relates to their potential for negative effects on the environment and human health. Because GMO’s that could directly effect human health are primarily products that can enter the human food supply, this website focuses on genetically modified food. To date, the only types of products that have been approved for human consumption in the U.S. are genetically modified plants (FDA website).
All genetically modified foods that have been approved are considered by the government to be as safe as their traditional counterparts and are generally unregulated (FDA website). However, there are several types of potential health effects that could result from the insertion of a novel gene into an organism. Health effects of primary concern to safety assessors are production of new allergens, increased toxicity, decreased nutrition, and antibiotic resistance (Bernstein et al., 2003).

Do you know what OX513A are? If you live in Brazil perhaps you should. OX513A are genetically modified (GM) Aedes aegypti mosquitoes created by Oxitec a British company spun out of Oxford University used to eliminated the mosquitoes that carry dengue fever, chikungunya and Zika viruses.
Oxitec has claimed a 90% reduction rate in the Aedes mosquitoes in northeastern Brazil where they introduced their GM mosquitoes putting dengue fever at below the epidemic threshold. However it is this same region where the Zika virus is suddenly ramping up from a previously innocuous level.
Further research has shown that there are conditions where the genetic modifications do not work, specifically in the presence of tetracycline, a common antibiotic used to treat animal raised en masse for food. Guess what country is the 3rd largest user of tetracycline in the world?
Judy Sellins and Dave Turco will bring you all of the gruesome details in a world gone awry.
The Homestead Honey Hour! http://prepperbroadcasting.com/ "From corn to soybeans, potatoes to peas, our food supply is being polluted with genetically modified organisms.. These Franken foods are pervasive in the American diet, and its not by accident. These foods are not only modified at the genetic level, but when consumed, research shows, theyre changing our own DNA. Join Katzcradul as she leads, what promises to be, a lively discussion on the effects of GMOs in our diet." The women of ‘The Homestead Honey Hour' have many things in common. What initially drew them together was they each had a YouTube channel, where they discussed homesteading, preparedness, and self-sufficiency. They have partnered on Prepper Broadcasting Network because they see an opportunity to share their skills and abilities with many, like themselves, who are preparing for whatever the future brings. Current situations, both social, economical and geo-political, require a ‘no-nonsense approach' to preparedness. These four ‘Homestead Honeys‘, Noreen, BexarPrepper, Katzcradul, and TheMrsVolfie, say “Bring it on!“, and are willing to lay down their, rolling pins, shovels, and canning jars, long enough to pass along sound information and answer some questions! So pull up a chair to their online kitchen table, pour yourself a glass of lemonade, and join the fun!
What is a Genetically Modified Organism? Where did the come from? Tonight's episode will cover a quick history of GMO's and their roll in agriculture. I will also discuss their effects on the enviornment and our health.

Genetically Modified Organisms GMOs, altered by genetic modification of the seeds, can render consumers infertile and undermine their health. Genetic engineering develops seeds compatible with their brand of herbicide and/or for other traits. GMOs may cause deterioration of DNA, the immune system, the colon and other organs.
The onward movement towards improving health within the trucking industry continues. The Mid America Truck Show was the most recent example of the healthy awareness campaign as many within the industry came together to become educated and join forces to encourage others regarding solutions for healthier lifestyles.
Our continued series of health shows will include tonight the topic of GMO's ( genetically modified organisms). This is a topic which is causing concern as well as confusion. On this episode we want to cover the definitions of GMO, what constitutes a GMO, what are the health affects of GMO's, and how can we avoid them.
The term "eat organic" is many times associated when discussing eating healthy, including avoiding the harmful affects of genetically modified food, but often the term organic is also confusing. What constitutes "organic"?

The highly rated internet radio program "Racing With Big Sweat" Thursday 5/5 9:00-10:00pm EST presented by Snafu Seasoning and produced by The 110 Nation Sports Radio Network wants to give a shout out to the local hot shoes. Along with your hosts Steve "Big Sweat" Billmyer and Mike Perricone, the new guy join this week's guests, Legend Car driver (and marked man) Dillon Spain and asphalt Modified and Figure 8 driver Tommy Rogers Jr.
Our guest tonight is Gail A. Eisnitz, author of the book "Slaughterhouse" and Chief Investigator for the Humane Farming Association (HFA).
Gail A. Eisnitz, a winner of the Albert Schweitzer Medal for outstanding achievement in animal welfare, has done work that has resulted in exposés by ABC’s Good Morning America, PrimeTime Live, Dateline NBC, and has been featured in newspapers including The New York Times, Miami Herald, Detroit Free Press, Texas Monthly, Denver Business Journal, Los Angeles Times, and US News & World Report.
Eisnitz was the driving force behind a front-page, award-winning exposé in The Washington Post documenting slaughterhouse atrocities entitled “They Die Piece by Piece.”
It is often assumed that farm animals are slaughtered in a clean, orderly process that minimizes stress and pain. But nothing could be further from the truth. HFA’s groundbreaking investigations have exposed the fact that farm animals are routinely dismembered while still fully conscious in U.S. slaughterplants.
The USDA’s Meat Animal Research Center (MARC) in Nebraska has, for decades, been using taxpayer dollars to fund meat-industry research to genetically and chemically alter farm animals. In addition to torturing and mutilating live, defenseless animals, MARC has starved to death as many as 6,500 animals.

In this episode of United Voices, Sherrie Saunders and Deanna Look will be discussing Monsanto, the creator of Agent Orange, Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) found in more than 80% of the US food source, and numerous chemicals which destroy the earths soil, and all life forms that thrive on the plants grown from the soil. Monsanto has also been careless in their discarding of such chemicals. They knowingly dumped millions of pounds of the industrial chemical polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB's) in the towns landfill and creek. PCB's have been scientifically proven to cause cancer in humans and animals, and so, now we have Toxic Town Anniston, AL. On Saturday, May 21, 2016, in Anniston, AL, a rally will be held in honor of those who have lost their lives to Monsanto products and chemicals.
Welcome back to our show! Today we will again address survival and supplies and techniques that might be helpful. I will be giving you website addresses to check out and read, webinars and podcasts. The better informed we are the less stressful troubled times will be. What lies ahead for us, with global warming,with uncertain weather disasters, and the End of Days as it unfolds for our world? Thinking about it and trying to anticipate events before they occur will also help. Come join us as we discuss disaster survival, be it large or small. The more we know the better! Doomsday Preppers- Come Visit us and talk to us!!!!
