In a bombastic, 7,000-word article in the New York Times by Jennifer Kahn published on July 20, “Learning to Love GMOs,” we are admonished once again that genetically engineered foods and crops are perfectly safe, and oh-so-misunderstood by the average consumer. In the Great Reset of the future, Kahn tells us gene-edited foods will not only satiate our hunger and alleviate malnutrition and rural poverty, but cure our illnesses as well.
Over twenty years ago, I co-authored (with Ben Lilliston) one of the first consumer-oriented books on GMOs, entitled Genetically Engineered Foods: A Self-Defense Guide for Consumers. Kahn and her handlers at the Times obviously haven’t looked at my book or the many others that detail the obvious hazards of GMOs and the superiority of organic foods and farming.
If I were allowed to debate Kahn and the other gene food cheerleaders such as Mark Lynas, I would point to the two thousand plus GMO articles on the OCA website that we have published over the last 25 years.
OCA’s archives provide overwhelming evidence that
(1) GMOs are basically designed and patented to serve as delivery systems for the proprietary (and toxic) herbicides, pesticides, and insecticides sold by Bayer/Monsanto, Syngenta/ChemChina, and Corteva (formerly Dow/DuPont), such as Roundup, glufosinate, dicamba, and (the bee-killing) Bt. These toxic pesticides, which now permeate our food, our bodies, and our environment are the commercial drivers and necessary companion chemicals for all of these GMO foods and crops.
(2) GMOs do not increase the safety or nutritional value of food, especially in comparison to organic products.
(3) GMOs do not reduce poverty among small farmers or ranchers.
(4) Healthy food, natural health remedies, and a healthy lifestyle are the essential ingredients for health and wellness, not genetically engineered or biopharmaceutical foods, crops, and vaccines.

Defending Beef: The Ecological and Nutritional Case for Meat by Nicolette Hahn Niman, is definitely not on the recommended summer reading list for Bill Gates and the other Silicon Valley tycoons who are bankrolling genetically engineered lab meat and animal products.
These GMO enthusiasts tell us that organic agriculture and livestock management are a threat to the environment, drivers of climate change, and an impediment to solving world hunger. From their mansions and boardrooms, they tell us that the billion indigenous and small farm ranchers should just give up on animal husbandry, switch to GMO Impossible Burgers and vegan fare, and perhaps “find another job.”
Before I learned about the environmental, climate, and nutritional benefits of regenerative grazing, I was a committed vegetarian for over three decades. Like most Organic Bytes subscribers, I abhor factory farms and the network of millions of acres of GMO soybeans and corn and government subsidies that prop up this abomination. I boycott factory-farmed “Big Meat and Dairy.” I'm the co-founder and manager of an organic research farm in Mexico, Via Organica, that raises and nurtures a diversity of farm animals in a humane and regenerative manner.
And as renowned animal welfare advocate Temple Grandin reminds us:
“I have traveled to every state in the U.S. during both summer and winter and have seen the land in extensive rural areas. There are huge land areas in this country that cannot be used for crops. The only way to grow food on these lands is by grazing animals. Grazing done properly will improve the land. Defending Beef shows clearly that beef cattle are an important part of sustainable agriculture.”

Whitney Webb, in my opinion, is the most important investigative journalist in the world today. Webb’s research and sleuthing is both troubling and alarming.
In this hard-hitting article, written at the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, Webb warns us that we should look closely at the manufacturers of biopharmaceutical vaccines, such as Emergent Biosolutions, with their shady, criminal backgrounds and their secretive military and intelligence connections.
We should also be looking closely at vaccine entrepreneurs and sellers such as Pfizer, Moderna, Astra-Zeneca, and Johnson and Johnson.
In “Killer Enterprise: How One of Big Pharma’s Most Corrupt Companies Plans to Corner the COVID-19 Cure Market,” Webb exposes how one of the most scandal-ridden companies in the US, with links to the anthrax attacks of 2001 and the current opioid crisis, will be cashing in on the current pandemic.

President Biden is calling for a “new biomedical research agency” that would operate under the guise of treatments for chronic diseases. However, if implemented, this agency would merge national security with health security.
The Biden plan would suck up masses of private data from “Apple Watches, Fitbits, Amazon Echo, and Google Home” and other consumer electronic devices, as well as information from health care providers to determine if an individual might be likely to commit a crime.
The plan would also work toward merging “biology, engineering and computer science to harness the power of natural systems for national security” along with “advancements in biotechnology, supercomputing, big data and artificial intelligence” to accomplish its goals.

The Counter writes:
“Mexico is now the United States’ single largest agricultural trading partner, largely the result of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), a treaty enacted in 1994 that eliminated tariffs on the majority of goods produced and traded between the United States, Mexico, and Canada. Although NAFTA was heralded by the U.S. government for reducing barriers to trade, the pact devastated rural economies in Mexico, flooding the market with cheap, government-subsidized U.S. corn and gutting domestic corn prices by nearly 70 percent. This shift led an estimated 2 million farmworkers to abandon the countryside to seek work in big cities or across the border in the United States.”

Google has been marginalizing and “shadow banning” OCA and our closest allies now for a number of years, especially since the onset of COVID-19. Whereas we used to rank high in the Google search engines, recently our Google traffic has fallen precipitously, while warnings from Facebook and YouTube to stay away from forbidden topics or lose our access to our several million followers have increased. As a result of these threats and shadow banning, OCA now has to produce two newsletters every week, one for our subscribers (uncensored) and one which we are allowed to post on social media (censored).
To carry on our work in the face of corporate lies, government intimidation, and now social media censorship, we need your help.

YouTube’s parent company, Google, among other glaring conflicts of interests, is directly invested in the controversial AstraZeneca/Oxford COVID “vaccine.” This is why YouTube censors anything that threatens the rollout and future profits of COVID-19 gene modification therapies.
Silicon Valley has been pushing to transform the health care system into a system based on telemedicine and personalized care through the use of artificial intelligence (AI). Google is heavily involved in this movement. Google also partners directly with the U.S. military, which is increasingly working on a transhumanist/behavior modification agenda.
The Pentagon’s DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) is heavily invested in transhumanist technologies for the use in soldiers, including brain-machine interfaces and other even more extreme ideas. They recently teamed up with the Wellcome Trust to create something called “Wellcome Leap,” a movement to usher in transhumanism.
Normally, there are very strict rules and regulations surrounding the testing and use of gene modification technology in humans. It’s only because they’re calling the COVID shots “vaccines” that they were able to get the EUA (Emergency Use Authorization), which allows some standard safety regulations to be bypassed.

Researchers have identified almost 300 chemicals in everything from hair dye to pesticides that can increase levels of breast cancer-contributing hormones.
Ruthann Rudel, director of research for the Silent Spring Institute and co-author of the new study, told EHN that of those chemicals, 219 had not been previously identified as potential carcinogens. The findings come in a study out this week in Environmental Health Perspectives.

Progressive icon and former Rolling Stone columnist Matt Taibbi writes:
“Brett Weinstein and his wife Heather Heying — both biologists — host the podcast DarkHorse, which by any measure is among the more successful independent media operations in the country. They have two YouTube channels, a main channel featuring whole episodes and livestreams, and a “clips” channel featuring excerpts from those shows.
“Between the two channels, they’ve been flagged 11 times in the last month or so. Specifically, YouTube has honed in on two areas of discussion it believes promote ‘medical misinformation.’ The first is the potential efficacy of the repurposed drug ivermectin as a Covid-19 treatment. The second is the third rail of third rails, i.e. the possible shortcomings of the mRNA vaccines produced by companies like Moderna and Pfizer.
“YouTube’s decision with regard to Weinstein and Heying seems part of an overall butterfly effect, as numerous other figures either connected to the topic or to DarkHorse have been censured by various platforms. Weinstein guest Dr. Robert Malone, a former Salk Institute researcher often credited with helping develop mRNA vaccine technology, has been suspended from LinkedIn, and Weinstein guest Dr. Pierre Kory of the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) has had his appearances removed by YouTube. Even Satoshi Ōmura, who won the Nobel Prize in 2015 for his work on ivermectin, reportedly had a video removed by YouTube this week.”

Most people associate the words “genetic engineering” with GMO foods and crops, Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller and the anti-GMO movement’s hard-fought campaign for GMO labeling laws.
As dangerous and unnecessary as genetic engineering is when used to modify food, the technology has an even more potentially deadly use: engineering viruses and microbes to be more transmissible and virulent.
It’s time to stop allowing—and funding—the dangerous and illegal activity of genetically engineering viruses, under the guise of “biodefense” or “biomedical” research in the U.S. and worldwide.
