Residents of Maui County in Hawaii, frequently referred to as ‘GMO Ground Zero,’ claimed a victory Tuesday evening when a measure to ban the planting of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) passed with 50.2 percent.

Agribusiness giants Monsanto and Dow AgroSciences, which for decades have run enormous growing and testing operations on the island, spent nearly $8 million dollars to defeat the ban, making it the most expensive campaign in Hawaii’s history, according to Honolulu Civil Beat.

The Greatest Medical Fraud in History – The Pain, Profit and Politics of AIDS

Could it be that after so many years of research, and so much money being spent, that the entire orthodox medical establishment has been wrong about AIDS, or even worse, has sought to profit from a system that it KNEW was flawed from the beginning?

“Peter Duesberg…what has he gained from his courageous stand? He doesn’t have a laboratory. I think lesser scientists see that and will keep their mouths shut”

Pharms of the future – Claire Cockcroft looks at new medical uses for tobacco

http://www.theguardian.com/science/2000/apr/27/technology1

“Molecular farming” has seen vaccines, mammalian blood constituents, enzymes, antibodies and low calorie sweeteners produced in tobacco leaves. Australian scientists have engineered a measles gene into tobacco. They are now modifying rice with the gene as an alternative vehicle for vaccines in the developing world where refrigeration of traditional vaccines is difficult.

GM corn set to stop man spreading his seed

Scientists have created the ultimate GM crop: contraceptive corn. Waiving fields of maize may one day save the world from overpopulation.

The pregnancy prevention plants are the handiwork of the San Diego biotechnology company Epicyte, where researchers have discovered a rare class of human antibodies that attack sperm.

The State of the Ebola Crisis

The main thing holding back large-scale development of effective treatments and vaccines for Ebola to this point is the fact that the return on investment of doing so – the saving of human lives aside – has been a challenging one for private industry to wrap its head around. For one, there’s no chance of a Lipitor-like success. There is no retail market for such drugs, just as there wasn’t for pandemic flu vaccine in 2009. What’s more, governments and non-governmental organizations are pretty much the only buyers around

“Once the government gets into this business, it’s responsible for maintaining what they call ‘warm capacity’,” Kantor says. “Hypothetically, if they want to stockpile 2 million doses of vaccine with the ability to scale to 20 million, they can’t buy the drug once and let the company go bankrupt.” It’s always going to be harder for drug companies to convince themselves of the relative merits of investing in a once-every-fifteen-years virus like Ebola versus funding research into lowering cholesterol levels. But from this point forth, there’s a market for Ebola drugs.
