@GFIs1 You make good points, - I will only add that once a mechanism becomes understood then the statistics are much less relevant. For decades the cigarette industry relied on the obscuration provided by statistics and we now know that that this can be fatal - statistics mean absolutely nothing unless they are used in a context of understanding a mechanism.

Bayes understood this in the 1700's but tragically due to Fischer and his test of statistical significance (which even he accepted was rubbish towards the end of his life) real science has in many cases missed the yardstick by a long way.

It is hilarious nonsense that scientists will publish anything with great enthusiam at 95.1% but refrain completely at 94.9%, whether they have an understandable mechanism for their hypothesis/theory or not.

Healthy Living!

Meanwhile, in Puerto Rico...

The Puerto Rico Senate agricultural committee is attempting to regulate experimentation with GMO seeds, specifically due to Monsanto research facilities located on the island. According to the website Corpwatch, however, Monsanto wouldn't even send a representative to testify at a hearing about GMO research and its potential dangers.

GMO movie in the funding stage


SANTO 7.13.15. GMO MOVIE | Indiegogo

Monsanto Threatens to Take Down and Censor ?Santo? Movie | Natural Revolution

Why is Monsanto afraid of a group of independent filmmakers showing their take of what the future of GMOs will be like in the future? Why have the filmmakers received over 40 private emails stating in no uncertain words, “your efforts are futile, it’s in your best interest to abandon this project?” Could it be that Monsanto is afraid that if this movie goes mainstream, that the threat of GMOs will be known by the masses and their agenda for total food control will be in jeopardy?
Read more at Monsanto Threatens to Take Down and Censor ?Santo? Movie | Natural Revolution

What's the movie all about?

SANTO 7.13.15 is a story that shows our future in 2045 when over population has reached critical levels and food supply can't keep up with demand. Poverty and hunger have become pandemic. Global biotech food giant SANTO has created strains of super food to feed the masses causing autoimmune disorders, food intolerance, and sterility in the process. Their new cure has proved even worse than the diseases they created: Santo lobbied and was given the right to make genetic enhancements to humans so they could again eat and survive on their created super foods. In that legislation, it also gave them the rights to own any human's DNA and body that was modified. For those modified that were less then perfect, Santo had the right to recall.

I hate them

The more you learn about Monsanto, there more you realize how evil they are.

It is every human being's most basic right to grow and eat our own food OK!!!

What Monsanto Wants, Monsanto Gets: Negative Journal Study to be withdrawn

From euronews:

Study showing negative effects of GM maize fed to rats, including tumours, will be retracted by the journal that published it last year.

“If this magazine, which just hired a former Monsanto employee as an editor, withdraws this study, it’ll mean it never existed. What we have tried to do, to try and carry out studies of the long-term effects of genetically-modified foods and pesticides on human health, will be permanently shut off,”

"The editor of the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology (FCT), Dr A. Wallace Hayes, has decided to retract the study by the team of Prof Gilles-Eric Séralini, which found that rats fed a Monsanto genetically modified (GM) maize NK603 and tiny amounts of the Roundup herbicide it is grown with suffered severe toxic effects, including kidney and liver damage and increased rates of tumours and mortality.[1].."

Italy moves to ban growing of genetically modified maize type

Italy moves to ban growing of genetically modified maize type: Italy moves to ban growing of genetically modified maize type | Reuters

Now of course, the follow-on news item to this will be how Monsanto will challenge and eventually sue Italy for the banning, and the denial to it's land. Just another absurdity of the backwards logic that powers our world and that of many people's "thinking."
