Patently A Problem – Bioethics of Patenting Human Genetics
Tag: biological patent
There are currently hundreds if not thousands of test plot of GE trees already being grown in the open around the world. My name is David Suzuki. I am by training and profession a geneticist. And for 25 years I had an active career in science, once having the largest genetics lab in Canada. I’m narrating this film because I’m concerned about the unseemly haste with which my colleagues and my peer groups seem to be ready to rush in and begin to apply ideas in this revolutionary area to apply ideas that I think are far too early to expose people either in our drugs, our foods, or out in open fields.
Aside from the dangerous ingredients many people already know about like squalene or thimerosal, one of the key ingredients used in swine flu vaccines is the diseased flesh of African Green Monkeys. This is revealed in U.S. patent No. 5911998 – Method of producing a virus vaccine from an African Green monkey kidney cell line. As this patent explains, ingredients used in the vaccine are derived from the kidneys of African Green Monkeys who ware first infected with the virus, then allowed to fester the disease, and then are killed so that their diseased organs can be used to make vaccine ingredients. This is done in a cruel inhumane “flesh factory” environment where the monkeys are subjected to a process that includes incubating said inoculated cell line to permit proliferation of said virus. The preparing a vaccine from the harvested virus. The patents for this process is held not just by the National Institutes of Health, but by another private corporation known as DynCorp.
what we’re talking about is waking up one morning and being very surprised to find that high potency therapeutically effective clinically significant nutrients are now illegal in the way that heroin is illegal. Not available with a prescription…illegal.”
Unemployment at 16-year high
In December, the number of unemployed persons increased by 632,000 to 11.1 million and the unemployment rate rose to 7.2 percent. Since the start of the recession in December 2007, the number of unemployed persons has grown by 3.6 million, and the unemployment rate has risen by 2.3 percentage points. Bureau of labor statistics.
Add to that, the Federal Reserve’s audacity to deny disclosure of nearly $2 Trillion dollars. As determined by the court, and I’m paraphrasing, that (bold) We the People are not party to what the Federal Reserve (a private corporation) does with its money.
It’s a very broad patent. It would grant, if it’s accepted worldwide, would grant Monsanto control of a significant percentage of all the pigs in the world. And here’s what’s so critical. The patent isn’t just for the pigs. It’s for the pigs offspring. So mother nature works for Monsanto’s profit. Every time pigs naturally reproduce, that is a violation of the patent that you have to pay Monsanto for.
To preserve its corn’s diversity, Mexico has banned genetically modified crops. However due to the NAFTA free trade agreement it signed with the United States and Canada, Mexico cannot stop the massive importation of American corn, 40% of which is genetically modified. This industrial corn, as it’s called in Mexico, is highly subsidized by the U.S. government. So on local markets it costs have as much as traditional Mexican corn.
This fish, if let loose through biological pollution in natural waters, will destroy the native fish. It’s very important to understand . One is this biological contamination is very different from chemical contamination. If you have an oil spill, it will dilute over time… This is not chemical pollution. This is living pollution…biological pollution. Once these fish are released into a bay or a river you can’t recall them… In the United States we have yet to have or first law – we don’t have a single law which regulates this kind of biological pollution. It is completely unregulated. Even though its effects will be catastrophic.
The problem is obvious. No one preparing soy in the home cooks it at 220° and for half an hour at that. Genetically modified soy should not have been approved. It is probable that the genetic modification made the protein more stable it just isn’t destroyed. For me in this failed cooking test, it says in the appears here how they did it, has a direct connection with the increased number of allergies. Monsanto’s conclusion that genetically modified food is safe is wrong, probably even criminal.
