Regarding Our Staff of Life

SK O'Neal
26 February 2014

    Consider the enclosed [below] Rappoport article on the connexion between Roundup and gluten intolerance, plus other possible issues. This is, of course, in addition to other matters we have discussed regarding the chromosomal defilement of the wheat that causes a strong gluten-inflammation response and the carbohydrate in the newer wheat that strongly favors diabetes. Our staff of life itself, as if to punctuate in ironic poetic license, is arguably among the most corrupted things in our lives.

    Allow me to be bold and say that it seems that any issue, whether it is our food, medicine, the manipulation of our education, the Titanic character of our fiscal policy, or for that matter now any other fundamental premise of common sense and human decency, is, under even the most modest examination, shot through with the signatures of decay, blytheful nonchalance about future consequences, and even the frank objective of genocidal philosophies of population control. How do we logically obtain a healthy nation and world if they are under the domain of sick minds and their inevitable rationalizations? Perhaps an American version of Nuremberg is our last best hope and impeachment of this plague.

    In my view. is becoming time to consider a great convention of the people whose minds are still intact to take direct control of our entire resource chain and the social order itself - to force into open court of human reality the fact that we are being defiled by a putrified ethical code and its over-ripe fruit of malignant public ignorance and denial only recently rivaled by Mengele and Himmler and the society they, and their secret Western families in collusion, distilled. But of course, such an emancipation, and its revolution against an apostate crescendo of human usery, is precisely what our nation's forefathers did. It is high time, I believe, that we should take our own appointment to refuse to dine at Jezebel's table, and also refuse to accept the homile that man is a fundamentally evil creature, in essence livestock who must be supervised by self appointed kings, however illuminated they claim to be; such men wash the feet of no one. All I can say for certain is that I am free and clearly see the lot of those who wish to remain in Sodom, and if necessary, will boycott all defilements and even redeem my flesh for that which shall never die. But first we might propagate the older wheat and corn and mathematics for our children, that they might not enter the future as pallid drones, and instead receive their commissions from a true king.

Email from author of study on Roundup/gluten intolerance

by Jon Rappoport February 24, 2014

A few days ago, I reported on a recent study of Roundup, the Monsanto herbicide, and how Roundup is involved in causing gluten intolerance and celiac disease.  I emailed one of the co-authors of the study, Stephanie Seneff (MIT),and she replied. Her comments are more than interesting:

 "The complex set of symptoms associated with celiac disease are not well understood.  If you take the point of view that the glyphosate [the main ingredient in Roundup] causes both the celiac and all the other symptoms, then everything starts to make sense.

"Glyphosate's disruption of CYP enzymes in the liver is a major contributor.  This explains both a deficiency in activated vitamin D (epidemic in this country) and an excess of retinoic acid (leading to infertility problems and teratogenesis).  It also explains impaired bile acid production and impaired ability to process fats in the gut. And it also explains system-wide sulfate deficiency which I believe is the key factor behind all modern diseases. 

We propose in the paper (based on chemistry) that glyphosate binds to the gluten in wheat and disrupts its ability to be transformed into a much less allergenic form.  The body develops an allergic reaction to the strange form of gluten that it encounters (not properly formed and bound to glyphosate) developing the intolerance that characterizes gluten disease.  Our proposal has not been proven -- as far as I can tell, no one has done the research to show or disprove this hypothesis. 

"There have also been essentially no studies to see if there is significant glyphosate residue in food, in water, in blood, in urine. These studies need to be done.

"People are mostly unaware that there has been a recent change in agricultural practices whereby wheat, sugar cane, barley, and other common crops are sprayed with glyphosate just before the harvest for desiccation/ripening.  This surely means that there's a lot more residue in the foods derived from these crops than there used to be. Furthermore, the Roundup-Ready core crops of the processed food industry - corn, soy, sugar beets, canola -- have caused a massive problem with "roundup-ready" weeds, such that more and more Roundup has to be applied to get the same effect.  The increased use of glyphosate on corn and soy correlates extremely well with the rise in incidence of a host of modern diseases, such as diabetes, obesity, autism, Alzheimer's, celiac disease, irritable bowel, celiac disease, kidney cancer, kidney failure, hepatitis C, pancreatic cancer, Parkinson's disease and thyroid cancer."

I want to make a distinction here. Stephanie Seneff, the co-author of the study, makes a case, in her published paper, that glyphosate is the cause of gluten intolerance and celiac disease. In her subsequent email to me, she proposes an explanation for HOW this causative chain takes place, and readily admits this is a hypothesis. But her hypothesis does not diminish the strength of her published study:

([Interdiscip Toxicol, 2013, Vol. 6 (4), 159-184]: "Glyphosate, pathways to modern diseases II: Celiac sprue and gluten intolerance") 

Also, the use of Roundup on food crops before harvest, to "dry and ripen" them, is a vital topic. For example, I just received a note from the UK indicating that farmers use Roundup on potatoes before harvest. The Roundup goes to the tubers, which means people are eating extra herbicide.
