    Whippet at his best - celiac disease and bioacoustic frequencies

    Your claim that: "GMOs cause Gluten Disorders, Auto-immune and Neurological Diseases;
    Monsanto is generating new disease complexes." represents a new low, even for you. I will refrain from my usual effort to be polite - you are just garbage!

    Strictly speaking we should distinguish between celiac disease, which can only come from eating wheat (but there is no GMO wheat being sold anywhere) and other health reactions to gluten. There is no gluten in any non-wheat food, but people may have allergies to almost anything and there are some proteins sufficiently similar to gluten that there might be people who respond to some non-wheat proteins. But nobody developing a GMO would ever insert a gene for a protein that's even remotely similar to gluten, or to any other known allergen.

    Then we go on to "Disrupted Frequencies". Here we have a perfect example of someone using a scientific sounding term for complete nonsense. If you seriously think any proteins emit so-called bio-acoustic frequencies, take a microphone connected to your computer and see if any grain, cooked, raw, mashed, whatever, is emitting any sounds. Still in doubt? This paragraph doesn't even know the difference between electromagnetic waves and acoustic waves. Still in doubt after that? Well perhaps the ancient Greeks were warning us about something in GMO food.

    What total barf! It's frightening that our educational system can produce individuals whose understanding of elementary science is so bad that stuff like this can actually be taken seriously by anyone.

    • the wheat being sold here is pre gmo wheat.but its still a half #$%$ crude scientific hybrid...dr davis and his wheat belly book has really broke this story about the dwarf wheat loaded with gluten and other massively bad issues for the world

      • Thanks for the tip CW. I know several other people who have similar symptoms as me. About 2 years ago after suffering for many years my symptoms got even worse to the point that I thought I was going to die as doctors could not figure out what was wrong with me. I had two endoscopys and a full body cancer screening and they could not find anything wrong with me. Both endoscopys came up negative for celiac including two other blood tests. They did find that I had an inflamed stomach which they called gastritis but gave no possible cause. I was so distraught I sold my house, quit my job and decided to find a nice rental with a pleasant view for a place to die. Then I met a regular MD who also believed in alternative medicine. He said I had the classic symptoms of food allergies. Even though I did not have celiac disease he advised a totally organic food, non-GMO diet and also avoided all forms of added sugar and all foods that contained gluten. My symptoms slowly went away and after six months I am back to feeling like a normal human being. I have my life back. This is a true story.
        This is why I'm so passionate about this proposition.

    • Cradar, I don't know for sure that GMO causes gluten intolerance but there is a good chance that it exacerbates it. The bottom line is I, along with zillions of other people, see GMO technology as not nearly tested enough as say a FDA approved drug. If you sincerely want to eliminate any "false" accusations about GMO then simply take it off the market and test it properly so the public can rule out any safety issues. Obviously, adequate testing will take several years and the money mongers at Monsanto will be against it. When you hide information, pay off shills to support your money making conflict of interest scheme, and then demand that the public shut up and not question your charade, well what kind of a response do you expect?????
      Please please wake the $ell up and smell the roses! The public is not buying this because they know it has NOT BEEN ADEQUATELY TESTED!!!!

    • Crader, again you are a paid company shill. Get a REAL job. You are so close minded. You are are like a sheep led to slaughter by a giant CHEMICAL company. Cradar, just think about that one statement. Slow down your mind and contemplate on the fact that you are allowing a CHEMICAL company whose interests are solely for the purpose of making profit for their shareholders determine what goes into our food. At a minimum you would think this to be a severe conflict of interest. Please admit that fact.......you couldn't be that stupid! If you are indeed a paid company shill, then please explore the vastness of your soul and the true purpose you've been put on this earth. You will undoubtedly feel very guilty and will cease these

      • Whippet, there are laws that make it illegal to damage another person's reputation by making false statements with a malicious purpose, e.g. libel. If you will please post here the information about who you are, we could settle this in a court. You would lose because I can easily prove that I am not paid by Monsanto. You have now twice said that I am lying for pay, once after I directly said that it was false. But you are safe, because nobody knows who you are. You can make your damaging statement while hiding behind a phony identity. You are a sneaky coward.

      • these claims that the public has no right to be suspicious of such a corporate entity as Monsanto. WE HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW! SHAME ON YOU CRADAR!
