Cannibal USDA okays rice modified with human gene

Mass drugging, like through the food or water supply, violates basic pharmaceutical dosage principles. In the short 30-minute film, Professional Perspectives on Water Fluoridation, Dr Phyllis Mullenix explains: “The whole name of the game is to deliver the right dose to the right person at the right time.” Nobel Laureate in Medicine, Dr Arvid Carlsson, agrees. Modern pharmacology recognizes that individuals react differently to the same dosage of a given drug. ~ Ed.

The rice with human genes

By Sean Poulter
Daily Mail UK

The first GM food crop containing human genes is set to be approved for commercial production. The laboratory-created rice produces some of the human proteins found in breast milk and saliva. Its U.S. developers say they could be used to treat children with diarrhoea, a major killer in the Third World.

The rice is a major step in so-called Frankenstein Foods, the first mingling of human-origin genes and those from plants. But the U.S. Department of Agriculture has already signalled it plans to allow commercial cultivation.

The rice’s producers, California-based Ventria Bioscience, have been given preliminary approval to grow it on more than 3,000 acres in Kansas. The company plans to harvest the proteins and use them in drinks, desserts, yoghurts and muesli bars.

The news provoked horror among GM critics and consumer groups on both sides of the Atlantic.

GeneWatch UK, which monitors new GM foods, described it as “very disturbing”. Researcher Becky Price warned: “There are huge, huge health risks and people should rightly be concerned about this.”

Friends of the Earth campaigner Clare Oxborrow said: “Using food crops and fields as glorified drug factories is a very worrying development.

“If these pharmaceutical crops end up on consumers’ plates, the consequences for our health could be devastating.

“The biotech industry has already failed to prevent experimental GM rice contaminating the food chain.

  1. A cure for diarhoea is found, strangely enough, in the herb about to banned from Australian gardens, salvia divinorum. Naturally. Without adding anything to the fucking plant or spending massive amounts of money on research and reasoning that science can play a role in being the saviour instead of using the herbs that have known effect for many centuries.

    To alleviate gases in the guts you can also use certain well known homeopathic medicines. There is also food you can use to rid the body of gas buildup and it has other health benefits, umeboshi, in the paste form.
    And pickled daikon. You can make a tea from umeboshi paste that will alleviate a troubled tummy naturally. Without any side effects, damage to other crops, none of the rubbish that these companies intend to put the people and the earth through.


  2. Is there another planet I can move to?

  3. More important is there another rock in space where we can send these idiots to play? Preferably a rock at the other side of the unknown universe with no atmosphere.
    There is no earthly reason to start messing with evolution but for money and the article clearly states that ‘this is a huge money spinner’. Deepest joy not!

  4. I am sick and tired of all these experts telling me that I should be feeding my son more and more drugs. He is strong, healthy, intelligent, and happy. He does not need drugs in his food to keep him that way or to assist him to grow to adulthood. What he does need is access to clean, untainted, unprocessed, food, water, milk, air, etc.

  5. I got caught up in this rice article a few days ago, seems this happened back in 2007. I spent most of the day yesterday trying to find out what happened with all of this. I have a few links to share with you as updates. I think we have some other questions yet unanswered, let me gather my links and respond again here. Why is this old article being recycled? I have been seeing it on several sites over the past week?


    I spent hours online trying to find where this rice which ”
    Ventria has developed three varieties of rice, each endowed with a different human gene” is being grown. I have not had one tiny bit of luck. All I can find is 2007 dated material. There are a lot of articles back then. Is it still growing, Ventria is still advertising it on their site, you can google them. Hope you can shed some light on this, as I am really interested, but need help in figuring any more out. thanks! jimmie

  7. Well, [where it is growing] may be written up on one of the very technical articles produced by biotech, but not so that average folks like me can find it. I guess what bothers me, 2007 it was approved, so it has been growing here (somewhere) 4 years. That seems to be a situation that would be more concerning, than knowing had been approved, yet no one seems to have further investigated. thanks!

    The rice is so high it actually has a mans eye. I didn’t know who owned the USDA till now.

  9. There is much more money to be made selling you a product created by a secret process which the company can monopolize the supply of. The many treatments that exist in nature can be replicated by anyone. They don’t care what it does to you, as long as you keep making them rich. The goverment is not looking out for you, but looking for a way to use you to their benefit.

  10. Please add me to your email list. Thanks! jan

  11. Okay, I’m not a fan of genetically modified foods, but all I heard the critics in this article say is that it’s bad for your health. Based on what? Is there any evidence–scientific, nutritional or otherwise–to support that claim? Just claiming something’s bad doesn’t prove that it is and only undermines any legitimate argument that there are health risks.
    By the way, Rady, The Freedom of Information Act only applies to the government, not a private business, so anything other than what the company would be required to report to the USDA or other government agency is not public information.

  12. Just when I thought internet makrketing was the bomb…

  13. There is one problem with this story. The only source seems to be British Daily Mail, a paper more known for sensationalism than accuracy. But if it’s true it’s very disturbing.
