In this week's episode...

In today's episode Jeffrey is asked about his concerns with GMO salmon and GMO fish, in general, and also about his concerns with other chemicals like Agent Orange and Dicamba which are being sprayed throughout the world.

Some of the scientific studies that have been done on GMO salmon have both contained rigged research and have shown that if salmon were to escape into our oceans it is possible that a population crash could occur.  The GMO salmon have been shown to actually attack and decimate existing populations of natural born salmon when food supplies get low.

Additionally, in earlier lawsuits against Monsanto and BASF, the creators of the herbicide, Dicamba, it was found that Dicamba naturally floats up off the fields and can contaminate neighboring farms.  It was revealed that this contamination of neighboring farms was actually part of the marketing strategy of these companies.

In one of these lawsuits the jury was so angry at these companies that they awarded a peach farmer $265 million in damages; $250 million of which was punitive.

Notes for this week's Podcast
This week's Transcript


Speaker 1: (00:10)
What's the status of GMO fish. And what are your concerns around this?

Speaker 2: (00:16)
There was just a declaration recently by the courts that the approval process for the salmon that was approved by the FDA was illegal. And yet I've also heard recently that AquaBounty, the company that made the fish were planning to release the salmon in the us market. In 2021, I'm needing to check to see if the court order blocks the release.

Speaker 2: (00:53)
I can talk for a long time about the salmon and how it might lead to cancer or allergies or the problems, how the research was rigged to avoid finding problems. And even then indicated significant changes in the salmon itself. That would be huge alarms going off for people, but they only used six fish in their research so that the statistical power was so small. They could say even a 50% increase was not statistically significant in the items that they were looking at. It was it's been a disaster. Uh, for science, a similar, fast growing salmon was created by Canadian scientists and tested in tanks. They tested the Franken fish, the natural fish separately, and together when there was sufficient food, everyone was fine when they reduced the food. These fast growing genetically engineered salmon who were voraciously hungry, became aggressive and cannibalistic attacked their Franken fish counterparts attacked the natural ones.

Speaker 2: (02:06)
And the ultimate result was when they reduced the amount of food. It caused population crashes or extinctions in the tanks. So if these fish that Aqua about is creating, which were a similar technology, if they were to escape in the ocean, we might see a collapse of salmon. We might see aggressive packs of, of dangerous salmon going and killing off other fish to, to support their voracious eating. If there was a survival advantage for them over the natural, we would see a replacement of natural salmon. And if the salmon turned out to be dangerous for health, then we would see an elimination of salmon as a food source. And because salmon are part of an ecosystem where there's other fish that eat salmon and salmon eat other fish, it could have devastating consequences.

Speaker 1: (03:03)
Are there other chemicals, such as agent orange that are concerned that are of concern that are being sprayed sprayed throughout the world?

Speaker 2: (03:11)
Agent orange has two major components, two, four D, and 2, 4, 5 T I believe, but two 40 D is an in-use herbicide. It is an older herbicide. It is toxic. The process of creating it can create dioxin, which is one of the more toxic chemicals I'll ever discovered. And because Roundup and glyphosate, its chief poison have been used so much. The weeds are outsmarting Monsanto and becoming resistant the same way that if you overuse antibiotics, the bacteria outsmarted and, and mutate. So there's been an increase in these other herbicides and now they have Herba. They have GMO crops that are tolerant to two 40 D. Now they also have GMO crops that are tolerant to Dicamba, another dangerous herbicide they experimented with. They released the D Dicamba resistant soy and cotton and Dicamba can Ize. It can be sprayed and float up into the air, travel miles and then come down and damage crops and it's damaged, uh, millions of acres.

Speaker 2: (04:37)
So there's been lawsuits when lawsuit with a peach farmer, um, peach farm was awarded 265 million. The evidence showed that Monsanto and B a S F that created this new and advance that would cause damage and planned for it. Because if your neighbor is spraying Dicamba for Dicamba resistant soybeans or cotton, and your field gets destroyed or damaged the next year, you're gonna have to buy the Dicamba resistant because you're forced to. So it was a marketing effort. Let's destroy some fields in order to stimulate sales. So the jury was furious and of the 265 million, 250 million of it was punitive damages for the way these guys behaved. But because Dicamba is so problematic and they're looking to try and, um, pull back the approval. They did some kind of pulling back of the approval. It's gonna allow more two 40 D, which could increase its use by maybe 25 fold, according to Dr. Charles Benbrook, maybe more. So that's gonna be in the food supply. That's gonna be in our system and that's gonna do damage.

Speaker 1: (06:01)
Why was it important for you to come back and speak here at the real truth about health conference?

Speaker 2: (06:07)
You know, every, every time I, I get,

Speaker 2: (06:14)
Um, a email from you guys, if I see that I'm a speaker, it's very convenient. I just send it off to my team and say, use this. Cause you got, you ask some great questions and you give time for the answers and you have a big platform to get this information out. Going to the conferences in person is always great because they get to meet buddies and make new friends. And it's one of the great bonuses of being on a speaker circuit is to hang out with the other speakers because they turn out to be very dedicated, often fanatics like me, balanced, fanatics, and great sources of information and inspiration. And of course, meeting people in the audience is always fantastic eating with them and sharing stories. So there's the quality of going when it's in person. And there's also getting the word out because you guys are dedicated to creating a free platform for people to get this information, which is awesome. So hats off to you. And I encourage people

Speaker 2: (07:32)
That if they watch a segment that they enjoy to please post it, share it, tweet about it because you bring together some very powerful speakers with great knowledge and in a format that's easily digested. The currency of the internet is video. And I would like to encourage people to not only watch the speakers that they're getting emails for on a regular basis, that, that have interest that have a topic that interests them, but to immediately share anything and to write down what it was that caused you to share it. Like, I really like the part about boom. I like the part where Jeffrey said this, or whoa, what did I had never thought of this to get people halfway into the conversation, what to look for. And even, even if you're paying a lot of attention

Speaker 2: (08:37)
Indicate for the longer clips where it is in like an at two minutes and 15 seconds, I was blown away by this. Now, as I'm saying this people listening, no, if you got something from a friend that said at two minutes and 15 seconds, I was blown away by what genetically engine and microbes could do to the earth. It is so much better than share. You know? So be a marketer. The real truth about health has given you the content become an educator, become a servant of society with this in your hand, and that is called a leader. So this gives you a chance to be a leader. And thank you for that.

Speaker 1: (09:27)
Well, thank you for that feedback and those recommendations, our hats are off to you for all of your meaningful work, uh, which means so much to all of us. So thank you. Thanks for your time today, Jeffrey. Good to see you again.
