Trump's EPA Decided to No Longer Fund Children's Health Centers. One Group Is Demanding Answers About the Industry-Friendly Decision

Trump's EPA Decided to No Longer Fund Children's Health Centers. One Group Is Demanding Answers About the Industry-Friendly Decision

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

Exactly what led President Donald Trump's EPA to stop funding research centers tasked with probing environmental health threats to children?

One advocacy organization, the Environmental Working Group (EWG), wants answers.

EWG said in a press statement Wednesday that it filed a Freedom of Information Act request to obtain documents, including electronic records and minutes of meetings, about the decision.

Every day there is another example of just how truly sick and depraved the republican brain, soul and psyche actually are.

Someone tell Biden that ‘finding middle ground’ with these creatures will kill us all

Those precious babies are on their own once they magically spring from the womb. Anytime someone says they’re “pro life”, ask them about the kind of stuff the Trump gang does.

For the elite running this country, facts and the truth are just a nuisance they can ignore. They laugh at the little people like us and our children as we get cancer and other diseases. These are sick people who should never been allowed within ten miles of a government building let alone sitting in the head office and running. it.

Here’s a link to an interesting article, published four days ago, suggesting that all of us, especially children, should be very careful to not eat anything manufactured from non-organic corn, soy, and cottonseed. This would include anything made with high fructose corn syrup.

The entire article is well worth your reading time.

The one criticism I have of this article is that the author really should have included a list of references for us to read.

After Reading This, You’ll Probably Never Want To Eat Genetically-Modified Food Again – May 25, 2019 - Michael Snyder - ZeroHedge (via The End of The American Dream blog)

If you want to live a long and successful life, you have got to take care of your health. And most Americans don’t even realize that genetically-modified corn has actually been designed to produce “built-in pesticide in every cell”

GM corn and cotton are engineered to produce their own built-in pesticide in every cell. When bugs bite the plant, the poison splits open their stomach and kills them. Biotech companies claim that the pesticide, called Bt — produced from soil bacteria Bacillus thuringiensis’ has a history of safe use, since organic farmers and others use Bt bacteria spray for natural insect control. Genetic engineers insert Bt genes into corn and cotton, so the plants do the killing.

The Bt-toxin produced in GM plants, however, is thousands of times more concentrated than natural Bt spray, is designed to be more toxic, has properties of an allergen, and unlike the spray, cannot be washed off the plant.

Do you think that it is actually safe to eat such “food”?

Sadly, the health consequences from eating GMO food may not just be temporary. In fact, one study found that the effects of eating genetically-modified food could last for a lot longer that anyone had anticipated

The only published human feeding study revealed what may be the most dangerous problem from GM foods. The gene inserted into GM soy transfers into the DNA of bacteria living inside our intestines and continues to function. This means that long after we stop eating GMOs, we may still have potentially harmful GM proteins produced continuously inside of us. Put more plainly, eating a corn chip produced from Bt corn might transform our intestinal bacteria into living pesticide factories, possibly for the rest of our lives.

I really should have included this observation from the article above:

For those that are skeptical, I would like for you to consider what scientists discovered when they fed genetically-modified soy to rats

The experience of actual GM-fed experimental animals is scary. When GM soy was fed to female rats, most of their babies died within three weeks — compared to a 10% death rate among the control group fed natural soy. The GM-fed babies were also smaller, and later had problems getting pregnant.

When male rats were fed GM soy, their testicles actually changed color — from the normal pink to dark blue. Mice fed GM soy had altered young sperm. Even the embryos of GM fed parent mice had significant changes in their DNA. Mice fed GM corn in an Austrian government study had fewer babies, which were also smaller than normal.

Could this be a clue as to why there is a “fertility crisis” in the United States today?

Hi Callmeskeptical:
Thank you for that article----it’s awful enough that America is starving and bombing kids and their parents in Yemen, but now they want to work on killing American kids, and probably their parents too. : (

Boycott poison - gee that sounds funny.
Thanks for your post. Hope to see similar such documentation postings early and often - to steal Sam Clemon’s thundering encouragement for voting.

Thanks for the link. Since there’s currently a player error, here’s the video on YouTube:

Well maybe when they arm all the Schoolteachers they can use the Guns to protect the kids from environmental toxins.

I completely agree. I even suggested that trump should have been put on administrative leave until the Russian hacking was settled along with the secret messaging of the sanctions. Then we found evidence of money schemes, collusion, collaboration, and obstruction. He should have been put on ice.

IN ice, and the block should be buried deep inside a glacier. In a few hundred, or thousand years the glacier will spit the block into the sea, where it will melt and the still edible parts will nourish some sea creatures. The fat one will finally have done a service to others. (If his awful offal doesn’t poison the sea around him.)

"One advocacy organization, the Environmental Working Group (EWG), wants answers.’

The answer is obvious: look to the bottom line.

Here’s another article about another study of the problems with processed foods.
