Vitamin K Shot AFTER BIRTH Linked To Early Childhood Leukemia

From healthnutnews.com

by

“If you’ve spent any time on our page, you know that we want parents to have the choice about vaccinating their kids. You also know that we refuse to ignore the thousands of kids and families that have been harmed or killed by vaccines. And lastly, you know that we feel it is our duty to talk about the things the mainstream media don’t want to talk about or are not allowed to discuss. Including the Vitamin K shot (it’s not a vaccine but something parents are pressured into, and threatened over, while still in the hospital).

Vitamin K Shot

And yet, not all babies are at risk for vitamin K deficiency. Those that are include babies born to mothers who used drugs or antibiotics during pregnancy, premature babies, and babies born via cesarean. Also at risk are mothers who had maternity diets low in high vitamin K foods or diets that were low in fat. But for everyone else, their babies will acquire sufficient levels of Vitamin K via the placenta & colostrum- typically within the first week after birth.

For a newborn, the Vitamin K shot- injected into a baby’s bloodstream/deep muscle tissue- is 20,000 times the needed dose. Beyond that insanity, the injection also contains a toxic preservative- Benzyl alcohol- that can be especially harmful to your baby’s delicate, young immune system.

Natural Vitamin Options for Newborns

But there are natural options for babies and mothers:

“…Kale contains the optimal balance of Vitamins A, C, E & K – a powerhouse of antioxidants. In the case of your baby you can puree the vegetable enough to ensure it is palatable. If you have no alternative then choose a supplement that is proven to be 100% natural & organic; but again natural is superior.

Phytonutrients work as antioxidants to disarm free radicals before they can damage DNA and cell membranes. Recent research indicates that the phytonutrients in vegetables like kale work at a much deeper level, signaling our genes to increase production of enzymes involved in detoxification, the cleansing process by which the body eliminates harmful compounds.”

And not only can kale provide Vitamins but it’s also a rich source of organosulfur compounds, which have been shown to reduce the risk of many cancers, including one of the most deadly forms- colon cancer- because they block the growth of cancer cells and induce cancer cell death.

The vegetable, and some others in the cruciferous family:

  • Kale, Collard Greens, Mustard Greens and Turnip Greens have deeply detoxifying properties, cleansing and detoxifying the liver, skin, digestive tract, lungs, and reproductive organs.
  • They are high in calcium, vitamins C, A, E, (including Vitamin K), folate, B6 and zinc.
  • “In addition to its deep cellular cleansing properties, broccoli is high in vitamins C, K and A, all powerful antioxidants for supporting the immune system and detoxifying the skin cells. It is also noted for its calcium content, which is in a more available form than calcium from dairy. Calcium must bind with vitamin C to be fully absorbable, and broccoli provides a high dose of each”, reports the article.

This is important for babies because the body doesn’t easily utilise synthetic vitamins and minerals and the vitamin K administered by hospitals is the synthetic, phytonadione.

But it’s also important because the Vitamin K shot has been linked to leukaemia, including acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (characterized by an increased number of white corpuscles in the blood) and accounts for about 85 percent of childhood leukaemia.

So, in case you’ve never gotten a copy of the Vitamin K Vaccine Package Insert, here it is:

AquaMEPHYTON injection is a yellow, sterile, aqueous colloidal solution of vitamin K1, with a pH of 5.0 to 7.0, available for injection by the intravenous, intramuscular, and subcutaneous routes.

Each milliliter contains: Phytonadione: 2 mg or 10 mg

Inactive ingredients: Polyoxyethylated fatty acid derivative : 70 mg
Dextrose: 37.5 mg
Water for Injection, q.s: 1 mL
Added as preservative: Benzyl alcohol: 0.9%

Benzyl alcohol, which is toxic, is known to cause problems like respiratory failure, vasodilation, hypotension, convulsions, and paralysis.

More from the article:

“However, little is known about the toxic effects or levels of benzyl alcohol in neonates, especially in sick premature infants. Animal toxicity studies show an LD((50)) of approximately 33 ml/kg (300 mg/kg) in rats treated by rapid intravenous infusion with 0.9% benzyl alcohol, although 40 ml/kg (360 mg/kg) by slow intravenous infusion was tolerated without mortality.

Benzyl alcohol is normally oxidized rapidly to benzoic acid, conjugated with glycine in the liver, and excreted as hippuric acid. However, this metabolic pathway may not be well developed in premature infants. The benzyl alcohol may therefore have been metabolized to benzoic acid, which could not be conjugated by the immature liver but accumulated, causing metabolic acidosis.”

Currently, the best way to protect your baby from this shot is to sign the necessary paper-work to “opt out”, via your family doctor, BEFORE your baby is born. And during your time in the hospital, to further protect your child, someone should carry all necessary forms (several copies) at all times. Do not allow your baby to be taken away for any “health” inspections before you’ve handed over those documents.

Court Sees 400% Spike in Vaccine Injuries, Flu Shot Wins Top Honors for Biggest Payout

“No surprise, given that most people in America don’t even know that vaccines were ruled to be unavoidably unsafe by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2011. “
From vaccineimpact.com

by The Mom Street Journal
The Business of Being a Natural Mom in the Modern World

Vaccine injury cases are on the rise people, so if you’ve got your head in the sand and you haven’t been paying attention, it’s time to wake up.

Here’s a little background for those of you just getting started.

Ronnie Reagan… almost 30 years ago to the day, the 40th president of the United States signed away the rights of Americans to sue vaccine makers, replacing them with a law that forces families who have suffered vaccine injury or death to sue the U.S. government instead of a pharmaceutical company.

As a result, special masters from the United States Special Claims Court, also known for our purposes as the vaccine court, are given full authority as judge with no jury to decide the fate of Americans who have had the unfortunate ‘luck’ to be stricken by a vaccine injury — which can range from chronic, mild symptoms to death.

Once a year, this non-traditional court provides the public with a glimpse into its inner workings, by issuing an annual report on its website — a ritual that happens every January.  The report is sent to the President of Congress, otherwise known as the Vice President of the United States, where it is intended to serve as a bell weather monitoring reactions the American public may be having to vaccinations that are increasingly becoming forced by government mandates around the country.

Great, right?  Accountability in action?

Wrong.

The report, which is consistently ignored by mainstream media/politicians/health officials and the CDC, lies dormant on the reports page of the U.S. Special Claims Court website.

No headlines, no press release, no analysis, no alert the media, no nothing.

No surprise, given that most people in America don’t even know that vaccines were ruled to be unavoidably unsafe by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2011.  Also no surprise, that mainstream, co-opted, globalist elite media constantly ignore this report, along with sane arguments made by health freedom advocates about the dangers and risks of vaccine injury (‘look! a unicorn!’), instead using terms like ‘the science is in,’ and vaccine risk has been ‘debunked,’ to deter rational discussion pertaining to evidence that is hiding in plain sight.

Also no surprise that the U.S. Special Claims Court offers up an ineffective, low tech, archaic version of the report every year.  Instead of a nice, sort-able spread sheet, the court posts a scanned PDF document — a format which requires labor-intensive activities to conduct any sort of concrete analysis.  One must either re-data-entry all 220+ pages which would take weeks, or conduct an extensive, hand-written breakdown by vaccine of each case, combined with extensive tallying and organization efforts in order to identify statistical relevance and trends emerging from the vaccine court.

Is this by design?  Perhaps.  Most definitely it is at the very least a deterrent from having anybody actually sit down and try to analyze the damn thing.

Which is exactly why we do it, every year since 2014.  Not to be deterred, it took us 10 months to finally finish our analysis of this year’s report.  But once we did, the trends we found were shocking — not just because of what they revealed about the continual increase in vaccine injury, but also because of the deafening silence present among the halls of mainstream media, as vaccine injury continues to be a subject that journalists and media outlets ignore — chalking it up to yet another conspiracy theory from yet another fake news site.

Well pull up a chair and hold on to your hats, because guess what we discovered:

In 2015 Bill Gates suggested we need a ‘kind of global government’: like we hadn’t already noticed that long term agenda

I spotted the other day a  Bill Gates quote from 2015. We need a ‘kind of global government’ he said, being careful not to say it as we know it exactly, as Bush Sr called it  … ‘A new world order’. The old problem, reaction, solution card. It’s been shaping up nicely for decades now. Remember Jacinda got caught mentioning the World Order as she put it. Aka New World Order, Global Governance, One World Government. (For an excellent timeline on the development of the NWO watch Jim Lee’s video on topic here it does cover other topics also note). They’ve been bandying around these terms for decades now, particularly following the Gulf War (when ‘they’ injected their military with Gulf War Syndrome). Successive presidents are recorded on video saying it. Aka sustainable development. They’ve given away their true intent by their total failure to adhere to their stated goals of sustainable development which turns out to be a total oxymoron. Filthy water, scarce water, poverty everywhere, homelessness everywhere &  little sign of anything sustainable at all. Which makes most

technology-2408300_1280
It’s unlikely the new world order will be the happy idyllic global village you’re led to believe

of what they tell us a huge crock if you’ll pardon the expression. I really can’t think of what else to call it. Your ‘esteemed leaders’ have let us down big time. And they’re all wallowing in their profits like pigs into muck. Literally. No sign of their salaries diminishing as one would expect of true & honorable leaders. No, instead they offer a tiny increment of $1.70 to the minimum wage & even less to superannuitants. (Go here to learn ‘The Dark History of the Minimum Wage“). Heaven knows how the sick & disabled are staying afloat. Adding insult to injury they’ve declined to abolish the capital gains tax … great news for the speculators who currently thrive in our obscenely lop sided economic climate these days. Roger Douglas must be proud. Keep watching people for this ‘wonderful’ Utopian New World Order to emerge. It won’t be the happy global village they want you to envisage.What springs to mind is a rhyme from one of their predecessors’ prior rounds of rape & pillage … “God bless the Hottentots for we have the Maxim and they do not”. As the late Russel Means warned us it will be “welcome to the reservation”.

Finally of interesting note before you read about Bill’s great plans … in researching for the above links, even using Startpage’s independent search, nothing but mainstream links to be found. Bar possibly one or two non mainstream. Alternative & truth sites have been banished from the search engines. This is modern day book burning. If you still think Agenda 21 or 2030, New World Order & shadow governments are conspiracy you are in for the proverbial rude awakening. And it’s almost too late to find out. To obtain truth now you need to learn what those sites are that have been warning us for years, find them if you can, and use their search boxes.

 

Bill Gates: We Need A One World Government

Billionaire Bill Gates called for “a kind of global government” last month, arguing that the creation of such a system would be needed to combat major issues such as “climate change.”

In a recent interview with the German publication Süddeutsche Zeitung, Bill Gates made some disturbing comments in favor of world government.

Not only did Gates advocate global government, but he also spoke favorably of the UN and NATO, completely overlooking that they are a major force of oppression in the world.

NATO can’t even hold a meeting without thousands of people gathering in the streets to protest their actions. Someone as heavily involved in world affairs as Bill Gates should know all about this.

During the interview last month, Gates said,

Take the UN, it has been created especially for the security in the world. We are ready for war, because we have taken every precaution. We have NATO, we have divisions, jeeps, trained people. But what is with epidemics? How many doctors do we have as much planes, tents, what scientists? If there were such a thing as a world government, we would be better prepared. (emphasis added)

Not long ago this subject was considered a total conspiracy theory, but now one of the richest people in the world is openly suggesting that this is a good idea.

Governments are generally a pretty bad idea; even when they are small they can still do a tremendous amount of damage. So when a government rules the entire planet, there is no telling what type of atrocities it will be capable of.

Aside from his founding of computing giant Microsoft, a corporation which has worked hand in hand with the NSA to eviscerate privacy, Gates’ role in the destruction of health worldwide is made obvious by the companies he invests in.

A breakdown of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s 2012 tax return by Mother Jones reveals billions in funding to corporations such as Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, Burger King and Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Other groups receiving major cash include private prison company the GEO Group Inc., military contractor Dyncorp, a major player in human trafficking, and nearly every top oil company.

A major focus of the Gates Foundation has also been invested in vaccination campaigns, although Western media has completely ignored major ethical issues brought up by medical experts in countries such as India, where more than 47,500 children were paralyzed shortly after one of Gates’ campaigns.

India-Holds-Bill-Gates-Accountable-For-His-Vaccine

Just last year, India’s Supreme Court began investigating Gates involvement in a vaccine trial that resulted in the deaths of several young girls.

Everything from gun control, Common Core and geoengineering, the practice of spraying toxic particles into the stratosphere to block the sun’s rays, has received millions in funding from Gates.

Gates has also taken heat for investing millions into biotech giant Monsanto, a corporation currently flooding foreign countries with genetically engineered crops.

In reality, the call for global government by Gates and other wealthy elitists has nothing to do with lifting up impoverished nations. Such a government would instead guarantee global surveillance, global wealth inequality and a world run by the exact corrupt interests currently consolidating wealth and power worldwide.

A former vaccine marketing executive speaks out about the pharmaceutical industry

In 2017 the FDA quietly banned powerful life-saving intravenous Vitamin C

Remember the man in the Waikato whose family obtained legal help to make the hospital Doctors administer IV vitamin C? They had refused initially & wanted to switch off his life support as they said there was no hope for him! Fortunately for the man his family’s efforts succeeded although the medics still dragged their feet on it.

In Mike Adam’s words … “…It would be naive to think that the FDA endeavors to protect the public’s health as its primary focus. Indeed, that would be a conflict of interest, as it serves its master, the pharmaceutical industry.” In my opinion NZ is little better. As we’ve learned recently from a retired NZ doctor the MOH bullies our doctors into not testing for 1080 poison (the government’s favourite for eliminating pests whilst distributing it freely into our water & water catchment areas).

Read the article:

(Natural News) It would be naive to think that the FDA endeavors to protect the public’s health as its primary focus. Indeed, that would be a conflict of interest, as it serves its master, the pharmaceutical industry. Has the Food and Drug Administration engineered a shortage of intravenous vitamin C as part of an overall attack on natural and non-toxic approaches to healing that compete with prescription drugs? An analysis by Natural Blaze would suggest that the answer is yes.

Natural Blaze claims that a critical shortage of IV bags in general followed an FDA ban on the mass production of intravenous vitamin C. The FDA limited the availability of IV-C and the pharmaceutical industry halted production of injectable vitamins and minerals, after a 60 minute story about the miraculous recovery of a swine flu patient on life support. Because of the shortage of IV-C, doctors called upon compounding pharmacies to produce it. But the FDA began to limit compounding pharmacies after injectable steroids produced by the New England Compounding Center were contaminated with a fungus that caused a deadly outbreak of meningitis. Here is an example of an entire industry being punished for the dubious practices of one compounding pharmacy.

Try and follow this convoluted story: Doctors began to source NECC for its more expensive product because cheaper generic versions were in short supply. But it was the FDA’s increased inspection of drug factories that disrupted the supply chain in the first place. So the meningitis deaths were in part caused by the onerous actions of the FDA.

In Sept 2018, 19 Doctors who were neither conspiracy theorists nor violent activists, expressed concern about the depositing of 1080 into Auckland’s water supply

People who are against excessive use of poisons in our environment are neither violent, extreme activists nor conspiracy theorists as the media would have you believe. To confirm this you simply must read the independent information. To begin with at least, here is a list of 19 Doctors … why would they spend their valuable time warning both yourself & the authorities about the perceived  dangers of 1080 in your water supply? 

In efforts to prevent the last Hunua Ranges drop this was taken to court by Sue Grey, lawyer where it was noted that DoC’s lawyers asked the judge that their scientist NOT be cross examined. The lawyers were granted their request & the drop went ahead. See the Court approval here.

BELOW IS THE LETTER PREPARED BY DOCTORS WHO WERE CONCERNED ABOUT 1080 POISON BEING DEPOSITED IN DRINKING WATER

Open letter to the Government, Friday, 21st September 2018.

As doctors, we are extremely concerned about the health risk of depositing poisoned bait over 22,500 hectares of the Hunua water catchment area. Specifically, we are concerned about Sodium Fluoroacetate (SMFA / 1080), a known deadly poison which is known to cause sub-lethal effects on reproduction and is classified as a teratogen, having potential to contaminate the Auckland water supply.

There is no effective antidote for 1080 poisoning in humans.

We are extremely concerned that public officials are not adopting a far more precautionary approach to the safety of the Auckland water catchment, especially when the effects of 1080, a highly soluble poison, is not quantifiably able to be tested on how it affects the health of humans.

Studies show that 1080 affects the reproductive organs, the cardiac system, and respiratory system in mammals. There is no safe minimal level known and water testing and sampling after aerial 1080 application cannot prudently protect the public from risk of exposure from this poison.

As doctors, we are responsible for the health of individuals and communities. Therefore, we ask the government to immediately stop the usage of sodium fluoroacetate which has potential to contaminate the New Zealand water supply.

If you are new to the 1080 poisoning program here is a good article to start with …

WHY ARE PEOPLE SO CONCERNED ABOUT 1080?

A must watch also is Poisoning Paradise, the doco made by the GrafBoys (banned from screening on NZ TV, yet a 4x international award winner). Their website is tv-wild.com. Their doco is a very comprehensive overview with the independent science to illustrate the question marks that remain over the use of this poison. There are links also on our 1080 resources page to most of the groups, pages, sites etc that will provide you with further information to make your own informed decision on this matter.

If you are pro poisoning of the environment, EnvirowatchRangitikei is not the place to espouse your opinions. Mainstream would be the place to air those. This is a venue for sharing the independent science you won’t of course find there.

We don’t endorse violence in our efforts to inform the public & hopefully persuade our government to desist from using  excessive amounts of poisons for pest control.

 

As fourth student in a California school is diagnosed with cancer, parents demand removal of cell tower from school

We see these towers in schools here in NZ. Not rocket science is it? Where is the precautionary principle? 

From the article:
“Monica Ferrulli, whose son was treated for brain cancer in 2017, said RUSD has cited an obsolete American Cancer Society study in keeping the tower in place since the controversy erupted two years ago. “It is just denial,” Ferrulli told the board. She vowed that parents will continue to fight and keep their children out of the school.”

From modbee.com

The Ripon Unified School District said it is talking with a telecommunications company about moving a cellular phone tower from Weston Elementary School because of a public uproar over cancer cases at the campus.

A fourth child who attends the school was diagnosed with cancer Friday. Some parents pulled their children from school, and many came out in force to a Ripon school board meeting Monday evening to demand action.

In a prepared statement, board president Kit Oase said tests done on the tower found it was operating normally within safety standards.

Cell phones ARE linked to cancer, landmark study finds: Results show ‘clear evidence’ of tumor growth after repeated exposure to radiation

From Australia’s Daily Mail

  • The NIH has been studying the effects of cell phone radiation on rats, mice and people since 1999 
  • Cell phones emit radio frequency radiation that allows them to communicate with cell towers 
  • Some studies have suggested patterns in development of certain cancers and cell phone use 
  • The NIH released preliminary findings in 2016 because rats exposed to high levels of radiation developed certain cancers early on 
  • Now, the final results show ‘clear evidence’ of a link between heart, brain and adrenal gland cancers in male rats  

There is now ‘clear evidence’ that cell phone radiation can cause cancers of the heart, brain and adrenal glands, a landmark National Institutes of Health (NIH) study warns.

A final report, released today, confirms the preliminary findings that were released in 2016 after scientists were alarmed by early indications that cell radiation may be carcinogenic.

Although the tests were done on rodents at levels much higher than humans are currently exposed to, the link between cell phones and cancer in male rats was undeniable.

For female rats and mice of both sexes, the evidence was less clear as to whether cancers observed were associated with signal exposure.

Still, scientists warn that the new research suggests that men in particular should take precautions to minimize the exposure of sensitive areas to cell phone radiation.

A new report from the NIH warns of  'clear evidence' of a link between high levels of cell phone radiation and brain, heart and adrenal cancers in male rats, but the Food and Drug Administration insists the findings don't apply to humans   

A new report from the NIH warns of  ‘clear evidence’ of a link between high levels of cell phone radiation and brain, heart and adrenal cancers in male rats

Senior scientist Dr John Bucher at the National Toxicology Program (NTP) in Durham, North Carolina said: ‘The exposures used in the studies cannot be compared directly to the exposure that humans experience when using a cell phone.

‘In our studies, rats and mice received radio frequency radiation (RFR) across their whole bodies.

‘By contrast, people are mostly exposed in specific local tissues close to where they hold the phone.

‘In addition, the exposure levels and durations in our studies were greater than what people experience.’

The finding was the result of a $30 million 10-year study to assess the health effects in animals exposed to RFR with modulations used in 2G and 3G cell phones.

The final reports represent the consensus of NTP and a panel of external scientific experts who reviewed the studies in March after draft reports were issued in February.

Dr Bucher explained: ‘Cell phones utilize a specific type of radio waves, or radio frequency radiation (RFR), to transmit between the devices and the network.

‘Exposure of people to RFR occurs primarily through use of cell phones and other wireless devices.’

THE END IS NEAR FOR MONSANTO AS LAWYERS EVERYWHERE GEAR UP FOR MASSIVE CLASS ACTION

From galacticconnection.com

Alex Pietrowski, Staff Writer
Waking Times 

In August of 2018 stock prices for Bayer, the company that now owns Monsanto, took a nosedive after a California judge awarded defendant DeWayne Johnson $289 million in damages.

From 2012 to 2015 Johnson was a school groundskeeper for the Benicia unified school district in California where he regularly applied Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup (glyphosate) to the property. In 2014 he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), and claimed that Monsanto knowingly hid the carcinogenic effects of the product from consumers. The defendant’s law firm noted Monsanto’s actions had amounted fraud and malice.

PC emailed me at 6:20 PM Friday, August 10th, the verdict rendered by the jury in the 8-week trial whereby the jury found unanimously that Monsanto’s glyphosate-based Roundup weed killer caused Mr. Johnson to develop NHL, and that Monsanto failed to warn of this severe health hazard. Importantly, the jury also found that Monsanto acted with malice, oppression or fraud and should be punished for its conduct.” [Source]

After the verdict, analysts estimated that Bayer was facing a potential $800 billion in settlements for thousands of other similar cases pending against Monsanto. Since then, Bayer’s stock has continued to fall significantly.

In October another California court cut the $289 million penalty to $78 million, but a precedent had already been set, and now lawyers around the country are gearing up for massive class action lawsuits against Bayer.

A google search for ‘lawsuits against Monsanto, or something similar yields rather interesting results, with the top returns being advertisements from law firms or organizations set up to capitalize on the coming tidal wave of profits to be made from suing Bayer.

In this one, the top five results are ads generating leads for law firms, pointing out just how competitive this emerging opportunity is becoming.

GMO Foods are set to be MISLABELLED as “BIOFORTIFIED – and it’s reported Australia & NZ are ‘as nearly always’ leaders of the ‘pro-GMO pack’

“With the past and present Chairwomen’s help, the pro-GMO forces have so far been successful in manipulating the biofortification definition…aided greatly in her dictatorial approach by those country delegates who very desperately wanted to be sure that the “Biofortification” definition could serve as cover for GMO foods so that consumers could be tricked into eating them in blissful ignorance. Australia and New Zealand of course, as nearly always, led the pro-GMO pack, egged on by their corporate masters. Brazil, Nigeria, Costa Rica, Uganda, Ghana, Thailand, the Philippines, China, and the United States supported marketing deception as well.

On the other hand, doughty Nepal opposed the definition, calling it, among other things, exactly what it is: marketing deception.”

From healingoracle.ch

GMO FOOD will soon be marked as “Biofortified” as the agenda to sneak GMOs into our foods advances

If you have ever been to Berlin, Germany in the late Fall, you know how miserably wet, cold, and windy it can be. The only real refuge from those elements is to be found indoors. But even then there can be events that drive you right back outdoors and into the elements. Such was the case with the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses (CCNFSDU), which was holding its 40th session during the week of November 26-30, 2018, in that city.

As most of you already know, the Codex Alimentarius Commission and its various committees spread throughout the World, establish food standards and guidelines after an eight-step process of consideration and debate that are then usually adopted by the Codex member states. The Codex Nutrition Committee is just one of the many committees that develop these food standards and guidelines. It is also one of the committees with the most controversial issues.

Biofortification
‘Biofortification’ is a method of increasing certain vitamin and mineral content of basic food crops by the time-honored, conventional way of cross-breeding and not through genetic engineering. Harvest Plus, the company behind biofortification, will for example increase the vitamin, or iron content of sweet potatoes, so that malnourished populations in developing nations will receive better nutrition. This is a very admirable goal, although I have argued at these meetings that perhaps it’s an unnecessary one if farmers would simply employ the proper farming techniques to prevent soil depletion and along with it the vitamin and mineral content of the foods grown in that soil.

For the last several years, the Codex Nutrition Committee has been crafting a definition for Biofortification. That definition would then be used uniformly around the World to apply to those foods conventionally fortified with higher levels of nutrients and everyone would be on the same page whenever the term “biofortified” was used. Indeed, the National Health Federation (NHF), a health-freedom organization accredited by Codex to participate in its meetings and the one whose delegation I led there, was an early supporter at Codex of this definition.

We have already gone through the sordid history, in detail, of how the draft definition of Biofortification had been infused with the disease of GMOs. I won’t repeat that history here. Just know that, now, the term Biofortification will have huge ramifications for the entire World. If the pro-GMO forces can succeed in continuing to hide their genetic-engineered foods within the definition of Biofortification and in using its appealing, natural-sounding name to sell their GMO foods, then consumers will be deceived on a worldwide scale.

The term “Biofortification,” at least within European countries, risks consumer confusion as to whether they are purchasing organic products or something else entirely. If Codex were to allow “any method of production” and “any source” to be part of the Biofortification definition, then Codex would be promoting marketing deception of the worst sort. Most consumers want GM foods labelled. In fact, consumer polls across the World have shown this to be true. In the United States alone, some 90% of consumers want such labelling and yet, here, the current, proposed definition will disguise GM foods under the term Biofortification. That is dishonest, disgraceful, and makes a mockery of Codexand its pretensions to credibility and transparency.

With the past and present Chairwomen’s help, the pro-GMO forces have so far been successful in manipulating the biofortification definition. And we are still living in the crater of that explosion that converted something good into something deliberately deceptive.

“The term ‘Biofortification,’ at least within european countries, risks consumer confusion as to whether they are purchasing organic products or something else entirely.” Scott C. Tips

New Leader, Same Story
So, as the Nutrition Committee was to edit once again the definition of Biofortification at this meeting, it was led by a new Chairwoman, Dr. Anja Brönstrup, a Policy Officer at the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL). Replacing Dr. Pia Noble, who had chaired last year’s meeting, Dr. Brönstrup had been the former head of the German Codexdelegation. So, with such experience, we all had high hopes that she would be a more just and equitable chairwoman than the previous one, who had pretty much conducted her Codex meetings as if they were her own private fiefdom and without even a whiff of regard for whether she was following the Codex Procedural Manual.

She was aided greatly in her dictatorial approach by those country delegates who very desperately wanted to be sure that the “Biofortification” definition could serve as cover for GMO foods so that consumers could be tricked into eating them in blissful ignorance. Australia and New Zealand of course, as nearly always, led the pro-GMO pack, egged on by their corporate masters. Brazil, Nigeria, Costa Rica, Uganda, Ghana, Thailand, the Philippines, China, and the United States supported marketing deception as well.

On the other hand, doughty Nepal opposed the definition, calling it, among other things, exactly what it is: marketing deception. Revealing her own biases, the Chairwoman then quickly scrambled to do damage control, dismissing Nepal’s strong comments by claiming that a footnote allowing countries to include GMOs or not would address Nepal’s concerns. That made as much sense as claiming that because only some consumers would be deceived, we could still mislabel foods.

The European Union, Norway, Switzerland, Chile, Argentina, and India all opposed the GMO-inclusive definition, as did Russia, which sensibly stated its main concern was that if each member state could decide whether to include GMO foods within the definition, then this lack of a harmonized approach would lead to market confusion. Unfortunately, the very vocal Bangladesh delegate Dr. S.K. Roy had already left the meeting for the day, or else he would have lambasted the definition as well. All in all, there was significant opposition to the proposed definition.

Yet, Dr. Brönstrup ran the meeting with cool but soulless German efficiency, which in her case meant dispensing with, or else dismissing, the airing of any viewpoints that might in any possible way slow down her sprint to the finish line for each agenda item. With her allotting only 40 minutes for the delegates to discuss the Biofortification definition, this also meant that she did not call upon any of the INGOs that had signalled her that they wanted to speak. Only the sponsoring INGO, the International Food Policy Research Institute, which strangely enough opened the discussion on this topic, was able to speak out on the definition, and at length. Fortunately, NHF had submitted written comments stating its position against the proposed definition.2

“I am referring this definition back to the Codex Committee on Food Labelling,” the Chairwoman suddenly proclaimed at the end of the day, without giving NHF and other consumer organizations any chance to speak. With this peremptory proclamation that the GMO-inclusive definition would be sent to CCFL for its review and approval, I was furious (as were evidently the other ignored INGOs). But I was the only one to storm to the front table and condemn the Chairwoman face-to-face for having not only ignored NHF but the Codex Procedural Manual as well. It was not a pretty exchange. But I did make my point.
