Video: Vandana Shiva, PhD tells about New GMO Strategies and their implications

Dear brothers and sisters,

Jeffrey M. Smith with the Institute for Responsible Technology asked some time ago,”what if Monsanto achieves their stated goal of genetically engineering and patenting 100% of all commercial seeds in the world? What if the biotech industry replaces the livestock, fish, insects, trees, grass, algae and even bacteria and fungus with genetically altered species?

And what happens if these forces deploy gene drives to wipe out species they don’t want around?

The answer: the greatest environmental and health debacle in human history. And there’s no clear fix to a contaminated gene pool”.

All of nature, as we know it, is under threat.This for reasons the most narrow, shortsighted and crass: an apple that will not brown when sliced, a salmon grown in the most unnatural of circumstances, yet ready for market in one year instead of the usual three, corn, soy and other crops made resistant to glyphosate so that the weed killer can be applied to vast monocultures. No matter that it is linked to autism, cancer, asthma, inflammatory bowel syndrome, obesity, depression, ADHD, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, Multiple Sclerosis, infertility, and developmental malformations.

Here Vandana Shiva PhD tells us, articulately and passionately about the latest developments. In the span of human history, this is without precedent. It is our duty, to understand the threat and its implications, not just for ourselves, but for future generations.

Over 250 years ago olive trees were first planted in California by the Spanish missions. The varietal they planted has come down to us. It is called the Mission olive.

The lab results on the new crop are here. It has a polyphenol content rated at 395 ppm (parts per million). That’s 78% above the 222 average for most extra virgin olive oils.

It contains high levels of the phenols oleocanthal and oleacein. Oleocanthal is an anti-inflammatory and oleacein is a powerful antioxidant. As inflammation is related to various other diseases, polyphenols help fight them including cardiovascular problems. Antioxidants improve body functions such as digestion and skin condition. They heal cell damage and enhance the body’s immunity, its ability to fight off diseases.

An Encouraging Letter

Dear Friends at Living Tree,
I only found you on line recently, and placed a first order immediately: two large one pound bags of sun dried tomatoes. The order was processed promptly and I received the food immediately and wanted to thank you so much. The flavor is intense and wonderful, what a beautiful way to be able to prepare salads, soups and pastas during the months when the growing season is over. The funny thing is that it is so easy to develop new recipes that I already know I will continue to prepare soups and pastas all year round with these, even though I garden here at home. I am telling loved ones about my experience with Living Tree, and will order more of these to give as gifts and to always keep my own pantry well stocked. Genuine quality of service and vision, and beautiful unadulterated living food. Thank you so very much. Means even more than it seems during times when culture is being worn thin. Blessings to you and all your colleagues! Therese
