New Zealand’s GMO-Free Policy Not Protected By Northland’s Council

GE-Free-NZ-protest-1024x413By NZ Northern Advocate

There could be a small break in the ring fence meant to keep genetically modified organisms out of Northland’s environment and primary sector.

The decision has groups who vehemently fought for 10 years for that GMO-proof fence now criticising the Northland Regional Council’s decision to exclude its strong Regional Policy Statement (RPS) on GMOs from its proposed Regional Plan.

A year after no-to-GMO policies became operational in Whangārei and Far North Districts’ and NRC legislation, the NRC failed to copy over its stance to its new environment plan.

The overarching Regional Plan — the draft of which received 360 submissions overall — will encompass, replace and update three outdated water and soil, air and coastal plans. More than 100 of those submissions referred to the GMOs subject.

Glyphosate Found in Human Hair as Unique Testing Project Releases First Results

unnamedBy GMI Reporter

A new testing program organized by The Detox Project in coordination with Kudzu Science, has released the first ever results for glyphosate levels in human hair, in an extraordinary announcement on Wednesday.

The unique project, which began in July 2018, has already discovered the world’s most used herbicide, glyphosate, in a number of hair samples at over 66 parts per billion (ppb), which is a much higher level than the average urine level of 3 ppb reported by the University of California San Francisco in 2016. The main metabolite of glyphosate, AMPA, was also found in some of the hair samples at even higher levels than glyphosate itself.

Poisoning New Zealand

9320695A Rush Exclusive by our investigative journalist ENVIROSCRIBE

As a third generation New Zealander, I am appalled at the creeping state control that is being impressed upon us. There are several areas of deep concern but I wish to firstly address the subject of the poisoning of our land.

The Vast McKenzie Basin in the South Island is a prime example. Willow and poplar trees are being poisoned around rivers and streams by a consortium of the Department of Conservation (DOC), Heritage New Zealand, Regional Councils, Local Iwi and large farm holdings.

When asking locals what reasoning is behind this wanton destruction of our heritage vegetation, the perceived explanation is that successive governments have, through these organizations, an agenda to rid the country of non-indigenous flora. Why?

When 70% of earths oxygen comes from marine sources and 28% from podcarp (broadleaf) trees, wouldn’t it be prudent to keep and cultivate our life giving components.

As a country we have a wonderful diversification of plant life brought to our shores over many generations from around the globe. Pioneer plantings of these species plus many others were systematically used for hillside erosion control and bank retention of waterways.

One only has to drive around our highways and byways to appreciate the magnificently diverse beauty of our trees. Tourist opinions attest to this. Just driving down the Para-Para from Raetahi to Wanganui during autumn justifies these comments.

All this poisoning has a devastating effect on the whole soil biota with invertebrates and micro organisms unable to survive in the resultant anaerobic conditions. Little surprise then, when algal formations occur, the waterways also deteriorate and native fish life is extinguished.

But wait! The authorities have a fix. Kill the algal growths with yet another toxic spray! Thank God I am not a native fish in a New Zealand stream.

In contrast, farmers in Northland are being supplied with and encouraged to plant willow saplings around streams to replace pioneer trees which have died. Full marks to the Far North District Council.

My next question is “what defoliant is being used in the McKenzie Basin and elsewhere to wipe out these trees, and why?”

Enquiries reveal that products called Armageddon and Lucifer are being used in these relate to Agent Orange made in New Zealand for the Vietnam War.

Visitors to Vietnam now report that the country is almost totally devoid of bird and insect life from this poison defoliant even after 40 years.

Is it coincidence that our Government purchased left over stock of Agent Orange from the Watkins Dow New Plymouth factory when production ceased? Google those products.

As if this procedure isn’t enough, there has been the destruction of mature English Oaks in Paihia, Hamilton East and elsewhere to the consternation of residents. Recently a 194 year old Oak succumbed to rot and finally fell in Waimate North. This gave much pleasure and shelter to 3 generations from its pioneer origins.

Adding to this disillusioned madness, they are also poisoning thousands of wilding self sown pines especially in the South Island. Whilst we know the pollen from these pines causes severe respiratory problems, there is a ready market in China for all we can supply. Unlike the Radiata Pine which we export by the shipload, Wilding Pine can be used for multiple purposes without treatment. Here is an untapped milling and export market going to waste as a noxious weed.

I am told that a third defoliant poison (code name unknown) is being sought to give a 30 year residual kill rate. Will somebody please admit to being the instigator of this poisoning policy throughout our country? Reference Vietnam.

As an adjunct to the McKenzie Country fiasco, the Regional Council are allowing the development of large scale dairy facilities when worldwide research shows that up to ten (10) times the revenue per hectare is obtainable by using aquaculture, horticulture and apiculture. The climate here is ideal for all of these.

Finally, have we let a bunch of so called ‘experts’ take us down the poison trail to fulfill their control egos? What happened to common sense?


Developer of GMO Potatoes Warns Against Consuming Them

Another-GM-food-to-avoid-GMO-potatoes-to-be-in-store-near-you-very-soon-–-if-they-aren%u2019t-there-alreadyGMO potatoes: The risks to health

Dr Caius Rommens developed GMO potatoes, but subsequently renounced his work. He explains why we should be wary of the products he created


Dr Caius Rommens developed GMO potatoes for the Idaho-based agbiotech company Simplot. The chief genetic modification he introduced was to silence the potatoes’ melanin (PPO) gene.

This gene, when operative, causes potatoes to discolour when bruised. The GMO potatoes do not discolour when bruised. They have therefore been marketed as bruise-resistant and are being sold without GMO labels in the US and Canada under innocuous-sounding names like Innate, Hibernate, and White Russet.

After finding that “most GMO varieties were stunted, chlorotic, mutated, or sterile, and many of them died quickly, like prematurely-born babies”, Dr Rommens renounced his genetic engineering career and wrote a book about his experiences, Pandora’s Potatoes: The Worst GMOs.

5G Network Uses Same EMF Waves as Pentagon Crowd Control System

5G-Crowd-ControlBy Terence Newton

The corporate-military-industrial complex is in the process of deploying — upon all civilians — millimeter-wave technology linked to weapons programs. The realization of this agenda is progressing toward mainstream awareness, and people are fighting back.

The global rollout of 5G is well underway, and we soon may see new small cell towers near all schools, on every residential street, dispersed throughout the natural environment, and pretty much everywhere. But the safety of this technology is in serious question, and there is a raging battle to stop the taxpayer funded implementation of 5G.

The new cell network uses high band radio frequency millimeter waves to deliver high bandwidth data to any device within line of sight.

Cancerous Herbicide EXPOSED: Glyphosate Found In Common Foods


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently found traces of a cancerous substance, known as glyphosate, in common foods, including granola and crackers.  Why is this such a big deal?

Just consider this statement from Dr. Stephanie Seneff and Dr. Antohny Semsel – which speaks volumes about the danger of this toxin:

Glyphosate has a large number of tumorigenic [cancer-causing] effects on biological systems, including direct damage to DNA in sensitive cells, disruption of glycine homeostasis, succinate dehydrogenase inhibition, chelation of [minerals such as] manganese, modification to more carcinogenic molecules, such as N-nitrosoglyphosate and glyoxylate, disruption of fructose metabolism, etc…” (the bold is our emphasis)

And, for those a bit more ‘skeptical’ about the often underreported threat of this herbicide ingredient, just check out this article by the Guardian revealing findings that the FDA prefers kept under the radar.  These reports are a constant reminder of how environmental toxins are ‘quietly’ destroying millions of lives – without informed consent.

Why I don’t Vaccinate My Dogs At All

dog-with-vetBy Catherine O’Driscoll

Our dogs are in the midst of an epidemic.  It’s not an epidemic of viral disease, but of chronic ill health.  They’re besieged with itchy, pus-laden, scabby skin; vomit and diarrhoea are the norm.  One in every hundred dogs suffers from epilepsy, and an even higher number lives with painful arthritis.  Allergies are also reaching epidemic proportions: dogs are becoming allergic to life.

According to Dr Jean W Dodds, an eminent vet and researcher, both allergic and autoimmune diseases have been rising since the introduction of modified live virus vaccines.  Autoimmune diseases are where the body attacks self; they include cancer, leukaemia, thyroid disease, Addisons, Grave’s disease, autoimmune haemolytic anaemia, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, lupus, thrombocytopenia, organ failure, skin inflammations, and more.

We also seem to have a tremendous number of dogs with behavioural problems, largely due to over-vaccination and processed pet food.  Vaccines are known to cause inflammation of the brain, as well as lesions throughout the brain and central nervous system.  The medical term for this is ‘encephalitis’, and vaccine’s role is acknowledged in the Merck Manual.  Merck is a vaccine manufacturer.

Years ago, I was the typical ‘responsible’ dog owner.  My four Golden Retrievers were vaccinated every year, and they were fed a ‘complete and balanced’ pet food, recommended by my vet.  The red carpet was metaphorically rolled out once a fortnight, each time I visited with a dog suffering from chronic disease.  Eventually the problems became more serious: my dogs started to die years before their time.

Over the years, I’ve collected research documents to help me make decisions about my dogs’ husbandry, and to share what I’ve learnt with other dog lovers.  I also hoped that vets would take notice of the research, and stop over-vaccinating.  All medical interventions come with a risk – even the humble aspirin can be deadly.  So you have to do a risk/benefit analysis whenever you consider medications.  What, then, are the risks of vaccines?

Disinfectant Use Linked To Lung Disease


Everyone has a natural instinct to avoid exposure to toxic chemicals. However, many make an exception when it comes to the popular use of disinfectant (cleaning) products. For example, one group of healthcare providers will be thinking twice about their habitsafter reading this special report.

A recent release by INSERM of Villejuif, France is connecting regular use of disinfectants by nurses with the lung disease COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). The research group looked at data from over 55,000 registered nurses from the Nurses’ Health Study II – which began back in 1989.

The Nurses’ Health Study II is coordinated by Harvard Medical School and the Channing Division of Network Medicine, Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Using a disinfectant once per week increases the risk of lung disease by at least 22 percent

TOXIC Food Preservative In Many Popular Foods Cause DNA Damage and Cancer


Did you know that a substance used in paint stripper, rubber cement and permanent spot remover is being used as a preservative in many popular foods (and beverages) for decades?!

The culprit is called, sodium benzoate and you may have seen it while glancing at a food label.  Sadly, too many people dismiss it as one of those chemical preservatives ‘necessary’ to process packaged food.  But, there’s an ugly truth that the food industry is hiding from you about this preservative.
