The genetically engineered bacterial toxin from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), was found in 93% of blood samples from pregnant women and 80% from umbilical cords, according to a new study at the University of Sherbrooke Hospital Centre in Quebec.
" The research suggested the chemicals were entering the body through eating meat, milk and eggs from farm livestock which have been fed GM corn. The findings appear to contradict the GM industry's long-standing claim that any potentially harmful chemicals added to crops would pass safely through the body. To date, most of the global research which has been used to demonstrate the safety of GM crops has been funded by the industry itself."
Plants are genetically engineered to produce Bt toxins, which prevents pests from eating and/or damaging them, resulting in the use of less pesticides. The toxin is a crystalline protein that has an insecticidal action. The first Bt producing plants approved by the EPA were potatoes in 1995. Maize, cotton,

It has recently come to my attention that a substance called transglutaminase (i.e. meat glue) has been used in the food industry for many years in order to trick us into thinking the food we eat is of a better quality.
According to Wiki, meat glue "...is produced by Streptoverticillium mobaraense fermentation in commercial quantities or extracted from animal blood, and is used in a variety of processes, including the production of processed meat and fish products. It can be used as a binding agent to improve the texture of protein-rich foods such as surimi or ham." (Surimi is a fish used to make imitation crab meat. Suprise! There's animal blood extract in your crab!)
"Transglutaminase can be used in these applications:
* Improving texture of emulsified meat products, such as sausages and hot dogs.
* Binding different meat parts into a larger ones ("portion control"), such as in restructured steaks
* Improving the texture of low-grade meat such as so-called "PSE meat" (pale,

The Secret of Oz is the missing link between the Civil War and WWI. This is never taught in history classes, even in AP American history classes. Why? Well, because history is written by the winners. Unfortunately for us, the winners are the bad guys.

THE CHRONOLOGY ISSUE
By Dr Prof A.T.FOMENKO et al
"History is a pack of lies about events that never happened told by people who weren't there."
- George Santayana, American philosopher (1863-1952)
The British Encyclopaedia names Joseph Justus Scaliger (1540-1609) as the founder of the consensual chronology we live with. Scaliger had considered himself a great mathematician and boasted to have solved the classical "ancient" mathematical 'Quadrature of Circle' problem that was subsequently proven insoluble.
His principal works Opus Novum de emendatione temporum (1583) and Thesaurum temporum (1606)
