The U.S. is attempting to push its agenda to censor all GMO labeling of foods everywhere around the world. This would result in a global GMO cover-up as consumers are left in the dark about whether their foods and grocery products are genetically modified or not.

Your help is urgently needed to send a message to the Secretaries of State (Clinton), Agriculture (Vilsack), and Health and Human Services (Sebelius) to urge them to halt the USA’s nefarious attempts to install a global GMO deception.

Gene linked with cancer in non smokers

ROCHESTER, Minn., March 23 (UPI) — U.S. medical geneticists say they’ve linked a gene to lung cancer development in people called “never smokers.”

The study — co-led by the Mayo Clinic, Harvard University, the University of California-Los Angeles and the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center — found about 30 percent of never smoker patients who developed lung cancer had the same uncommon variant residing in a gene known as GPC5.

A never smoker is defined as a person who has smoked fewer than 100 cigarettes during his or her lifetime.

Officials at the Food and Drug Administration advised physicians Monday to temporarily stop using Rotarix, a vaccine commonly given to children to protect them against the stomach bug rotavirus, because it is contaminated with traces of a second virus.

The contaminant, called PCV-1, is a DNA virus that infects pigs and other species but is not known to cause illness in humans or any other animals. The virus appears to have come from the cell cultures used to make Rotarix.
