Human Genes in Rice; Breastfeeding Men: Science Out of Control By Brian Simpson
Science and technology constitutes the magic of our age, and given that it produces effects, it is funded by the ruling class who use it to consolidate their power and control the plebs. A few crumbs fall form the festive table that the masses can eat, to keep them extra docile. Consider human genes now in rice; look mum, I am sooooooo clever:
“Rice that has been engineered with actual human genes is on its way to a supermarket near you. In Junction City, Kansas, this human gene-tainted rice is being grown on 3,200 acres by the biotechnology company Ventria Bioscience. Ventria began cultivating this rather horrifying product in 2006 with human liver genes. What exactly was the purpose of this, you ask? Their intention was to harvest the artificial enzymes produced by the rice and use them in pharmaceuticals. Ventria has taken one of the most widely grown and consumed crops and turned it into the base for new prescription drugs — all with USDA approval, of course.
Their decision to allow plants intended for pharmaceuticals to be grown outdoors has not gone without protest. Ventria initially wanted to plant their “crops” — if you can call them that anymore — in Missouri. However, they were met with staunch opposition from Anheuser-Busch and others, who promptly threatened to boycott all rice from the state if the biotechnology planted their GMO rice within the state’s borders. Eventually though, Ventria found a place to settle in Kansas. In 2007, Jane Rissler from the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) told the Washington Post, “It is unwise to produce drugs in plants outdoors.”
The threat of contamination and cross-pollination between this genetically-modified rice species and natural rice is of utmost concern. While it may seem rather basic, widespread contamination of unmodified rice could lead to chronic disease. Bill Freese, Science Policy Analyst at the Center for Food Safety (CFS), who published a report back in 2007 about the dangers of Ventria’s GM rice, states, “These genetically engineered drugs could exacerbate certain infections, or cause dangerous allergic or immune system reactions.”
It would be just too bad if this is the way the long-awaited zombie apocalypse starts. Anyway, men who want to breast feed will soon have a solution:
“A revolutionary hormone kit that lets men breastfeed could be available in as little as five years, according to its inventor. The kit involves a man taking a cocktail of drugs throughout his partner's pregnancy so that he grows milk ducts in time for the birth. Although in the early stages and not yet tested, designer Marie-Claire Springham, say its side effects will likely include men growing breasts up to a B cup. 'I can’t see why couples wouldn’t use this,' the 24-year-old, who studied product design at Central Saint Martins, London, told MailOnline. 'It seems unusual but women have been using hormones to change their bodies since they developed the birth-control pill.”
It is exactly the sort of thing that we would expect in a world where science is out of control, or at least, out of the control of people, and in the hands of the money elites.
