GMOs, a “Trojan Horse” for more agrochemicals use and their link to COVID-19

Good people, the month of August 2020, is here with us and with it the rising cases of COVID-19, both in terms of new cases (incidence) and cumulative cases (prevalence), across the entire globe. COVID-19 is, apparently a “gain of function research” virus product which apparently, displays “monster virus” aka chimeric virus properties. Read here: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0166354220300528...it appears to be genetically modified from the original “flu’ corona family of viruses, as found in wild bats.

This month’s article is a follow up from last month’s article, https://www.organicconsumers.co.ke/164-a-revisit-of-the-harmful-effects-of-glyphosate-aka-roundup-weed-killer-is-there-a-synergistic-effect-between-glyphosate-based-herbicides-gbh-and-covid-19.html  It seeks to demonstrate the nefarious reasons behind “inventing” GMO seeds and plants through “silencing” enzymes in natural plants(which die when sprayed with herbicides) to enable “lab designed” seeds aka genetically modified seeds (GMOs), to withstand the herbicides and use MORE of them(agrochemicals), while at the same time enabling the “inventors” of the “novel seeds” to lay claim on the new seeds by way of patents! That way they claim “ownership of seeds” and “force” farmers not only to buy their more expensive modified seeds, every season (instead of sharing and using the free natural seeds) but also to buy the equally expensive agrochemical inputs required to grow these “toxic foods”!! What an innovative and effective marketing and sales strategy! These “merchants of death” have their guns trained on Africa and African small scale farmers, https://www.gmwatch.org/en/news/latest-news/19435 in the pretext of “food security”.

A revisit of the harmful effects of Glyphosate aka Roundup Weed killer: Is there a synergistic effect between glyphosate based herbicides (GBH) and COVID-19?

Good people, the month of July, 2020, is here with us and with it uncertainty and mounting anxiety on how to deal with Covid19 and its worsening health and socio-economic impact.

This article seeks to remind the readership of the central role of a well functioning immune system in “treating” over 90% of Covid19 infections(especially in Africa)...the immune system is the unsung hero in the fight against Covid19.

It further seeks to highlight the toxic effects of Roundup and other glyphosate based herbicides (GBH), including how they weaken the immune system. It also seeks to explore the connection between the harmful effects of GBH, including causing various cancers, in addition to  damaging human micro-biota with resultant weakening of the immune system and how this could increase vulnerability to Covid19 infections.

Is there is a link between Organic food producers - consumers - the environment and Covid19?

Is there is a link between Organic food producers - consumers - the environment and Covid19?

Good people, the month of May is here with us and with it the “plague” of Covid19 continues unabated… causing untold misery and unprecedented deaths, everywhere.  There is an increasing sense of confusion and despondency.  But one thing is clear; Covid19 attacks the immune system and causes it to dysfunction.

  • Is there anything we can do to strengthen the immune system, which is the first line of defense? At individual, household, community, sub-national and national level?
  • Yes, there is. “Grow and consume organic foods or purchase from your trusted local farmer or from certified organic outlets and consume organic produce rather than the conventional types.” There is emerging evidence that synthetic chemical free foods, grown locally, consisting of a rich diversity IS “medicine” for Covid19.
  • Indeed, as early as 431 BC Hippocrates admonished as such:”Let food be thy medicine..”

What do GMOs, Glyphosate aka Roundup, Vaccines, 5G and Covid19 have in common?

Good people, the month of June 2020 is here, with us, and with it an unprecedented manifestation of the “convergence of toxicity” which has devastating consequences on the immune system. One may quip, really? What do genetically modified organisms, glyphosate (popularly called Roundup Weedkiller or Gyphosate Based Herbicides-GBH), Vaccines , 5G and COVID-19 have in common?”

In this article, we outline the various “toxins” that constitute the “convergence of toxicity”. Let us start with GMOs. What are genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and what do they have in common with Covid19? For starters, both GMOs and Covid19 are genetically modified organisms. There is evidence that Covid19 is a “novel” virus, meaning it is not natural but rather “modified” through man-made interventions in scientific laboratories.

Is the Corona virus nature’s message that humanity needs to press the “re-set” button? Is there evidence that boosting immunity is the first line of defense?

The month of April is here and with it the Corona virus pandemic is spreading fear and anxiety, globally: This is unprecedented; a pandemic of monumental proportions unfolding right before our eyes.

In recent months Covid 19 has forced us to pose and press the “re-set” button…to ask fundamental questions regarding how humanity may have, inadvertently, caused the emergence of new infections, including the Corona virus.  Here below, pertinent questions and evidence based answers.
