Swine Flu Vaccine in GMO Corn

This is nuts! No more of my Grandma's Southern Cornbread for our family. I stopped buying corn meal years ago when I learned that most of the corn in the world today is GMO. This is one more BIG reason to give it up. Here are just the first two sentences from an article you can find here at http://www.politicolnews.com/swine-flu-vaccine-in-your-gmo-foods/
"The onslaught of vaccines will increase as we know the scientists at the University of Iowa are already working on inserting the Swine Flu Vaccine into genetically modified corn. Well the pharmas and monstanto have teamed up to bring you the newest breakfast ceareal you can imagine: The New GMO Swine Flu CornFlakes"

Yikes and Yuck! It makes me happy we only eat organic corn.

No free food choice. The ridiculousness just keeps going on and on. It's a good thing we're just passers through...

Your hard earned tax dollars at work.

Its scary to think of all the "stuff" going into food these days. And really, what right do they have to tamper with our food supply without consent therefore forcing us against our knowledge to ingest drugs and chemicals that could have significant side effects down the road. UHGGG! Thats insane. Blessings! ~ Nikki

Why is it you NEVER hear this stuff on the news....just regurgitated crap, over and over. Between the polititans and the corruption of our food, I sometimes think that we're doomed.

Yes! My reaction was the same.
Thank you all for visiting. One more reason to grow your own food. I read about a year ago that some European countries have stopped or decreased their importation of foods from the U.S. because they say our food supply is unsafe. No kidding!

Scary !!! Thank goodness we avoid anything with corn already b/c of 2ds allergies.

So you don't like having vaccines that are cheaply produced to help in the event of a swine-flu catastrophe? The next time you might like to think a little more critically about what you are believing, before you swallow bait, hook, line AND sinker.

That's right. I don't want any of those poisons in my children, destroying their brains and bodies. I'm a nurse, and I used to believe all that junk of the mainstream medical world. Yep! I bought into it hook, line and sinker. I gradually began to see how very little of it actually holds water and helps people. Much of it is extremely harmful, especially the pharmaceuticals. If you want to poison yourself with vaccines and other pharmaceuticals, go for it. Just don't force it on the rest of us, or sneak it into our food.

Hi Jenny,

You're spot-on with this one. Scary stuff. They have to use bacteria/viruses to be able to splice the genetic materials from one gene into another...you can't just "cut and paste" because genes have a God-created resistance to any other genetic material getting in; but viruses, of course, CAN get into a gene and replicate their DNA, so they are part of the genetic modification process. One of the big fears of what Monsanto is doing with this is that when they use bacteria in the seeds for genetic modification, that the bacteria may begin to mutate and become resistant to antibiotics. I think it's a legitimate fear.

If you have time, I highly recommmend this video, called "The Future of Food." You can see it free here:

http://www.hulu.com/watch/67878/the-future-of-food

If it won't work, I've seen it linked on YouTube, or it can be rented from Netflix or other places.

I wish every American and Canadian would see it and rise up in a collective scream to the gov't and at the voting booth. It's already so far down the pike, though, we're in trouble.

Thank you so much for posting this for all of us! There is still organic cornmeal or corn for grinding into meal, which would be non-GMO, so don't give up on that cornbread too soon... :-)

Blessings,
Lori

It is scary stuff. On the organic foods, I just read that even GMO crops can be labeled "organic" chemicals aren't used. It isn't a requirement that foods be labeled GMO, so unless you're very careful, foods can be GMO and still labeled "organic". If I find the site again, I'll post it. That term, "organic" is being thrown all over labels these days on foods that are poison. I bought some peanut butter while in town that said "Organic" on the front label. I was in a hurry and didn't read the fine print. It had organic peanuts (supposedly), but also regular refined white sugar, preservatives and all sorts of other chemicals. I don't trust the labels anymore.

Hi Jenny,

The "USDA Certified Organic" seal on a product is supposed to mean no GMO in addition to no hormones/antibiotics and also to ban a number of chemicals, but not all (there are "approved" ones)...but I agree, I do not believe it is universally enforced. Your comment above caused me to search a little, and I found this VERY scary article on the Food Freedom blog:
http://foodfreedom.wordpress.com/2010/12/22/monsantos-neotame-molecule-allowed-in-usda-certified-organic-foods/

I cannot believe (well, actually, yes I can) that they are adding artificial sweeteners to cattle feed now. I am grateful that God has allowed us a friendship with a family that raises 100%grassfed /grass finished organic beef. We split a side of this beef with another local family, I refuse to buy beef from ANYWHERE that isn't completely grass-finished. It's easy to find grass fed, but then those animals go to a feedlot to be "finished" on grain. I wish I knew a good chicken grower! I can get it from a coop, but it's almost $25/pound. I gotta find someone. It's amazing any of us live to 50 anymore!

Thanks again for sharing this!

Wow, Lori! Thanks for the info! That is some bad stuff. I read not too long ago about a few European countries refusing to buy food from the U.S. because they believe that the U.S. food supply is too dangerous for their citizens to eat. No Kidding ! ! ! You are fortunate that you can get that totally organic beef. I didn't know about grass fed cows being "finished" at feed lots. That's disgusting!

Thanks again for posting the information. I'll try to remember to come back and post about it so more people can see it.

I just found your blog today. I admire you out in the bush, that is so far out of my league right now, but my daughter hopes to do that some day. She asked me if she'll have a hard time finding a husband that wants to live that way, LOL! I told her she'd be the girl they were all looking for.

I'm so happy that you post so much about what is local and edible and good for us. I was taught nothing growing up here and I feel that I'm just beginning.

Thanks, Anna

Hi Anna! I'm so glad you found my blog and are enjoying it. Please feel free to email me anytime, or post comments. I'd love to hear from you. I'm sure we could learn a lot from each other! :)
