Stop GMO Corn in Mexico… Again! – Mexican Court Overturns Biotech GMO Ban

2nd September 2015

If you’ve been to Mexico, you know how incredible the food and culture are. I grew up part-time in Mexico and have returned many times since, for the beauty of the land, the people, the culture and the food. Much of this food culture revolves around corn, or maize, as it is technically called. But corn does more than feed people. It’s part and parcel of Mexico’s way of life.

Mexico is the cradle, the birthplace, of maize. Thousands of varieties have been cultivated over thousands of years by indigenous and traditional Mexicans. Many of these varieties are specifically adapted to thrive in Mexico’s varied landscapes — far more effectively than the one or two genetically modified varieties that stand to wipe out this millennia-long heritage.

However, after years of staving off the proliferation of GMO corn in Mexico, we’ve just received news of a devastating blow to the protection of everything beautiful connected with Mexico and this culinary legacy. After intense lobbying by biotech companies of Monsanto, Dow, and Dupont, Mexico’s twelfth District Court just overturned a 2013 ruling which, until now, has prevented the chemicals giants from planting GMO maize in Mexico.

Revitalize Your Passion for Life

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

We’ve been fortunate enough to survive the “me” generation to learn that life is much more inclusive than it used to be. Thanks to social media, “me” exploded into “we,” and a socially conscious generation was born. What was once considered personal fulfillment has changed for the better.

Flashback

Let’s have a little fun, shall we? Even if you were born circa 1990 or later, we’re pretty sure you’ll enjoy this quick reprise of a few of you or your parents’ greatest hits. You might even laugh out loud to discover how seriously you took life back then.

Emotions and Truth: Our Human Experience

2nd September 2015

By Dr. Michelle Kmiec

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Emotions spontaneously arise each day despite our efforts to control them. They often surface without warning, whether we want them to or not. Fortunately, many of these emotions translate as pleasurable ones – feelings of joy, contentment and love. However, like it or not, there are times when less than desirable emotions come forth – anger, frustration or possibly fear. But experiencing these unpleasant emotions is not necessarily a bad thing.

Emotions play a major role in who we are as individuals and are the driving force behind how we interpret events we encounter. The question then becomes, is our reaction based on reality?

We All Have Inherent Rights – Regardless of Whether a Nation’s “Authority” Recognizes It

1st September 2015

By Makia Freeman

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

We all have inherent rights, no matter whether the governing authority of a particular geographical area recognizes it or whether it has been written down on a piece of paper as law. People from different societies and cultures call these rights slightly different things.

In the USA, they have been referred to as “unalienable rights” ever since the 1776 Declaration of Independence. Some call them natural rights to distinguish them from state-granted rights (which are not really rights but rather privileges). Others simply call them human rights.

From a more religious perspective they are called God-given rights. Those who are uncomfortable with the loaded term “God” (because of all the connotations it carries) may prefer intrinsic rights or inherent rights. But, whatever you call them, they are a universal concept. They are a natural extension of ourselves with which we are born, and which we possess just by virtue of being human.

Scientific Review Shows Fluoridation Does Not Prevent Cavities

1st September 2015

By Dr. Joseph Mercola

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

After decades of toxic fluoride being added to public water supplies without the public’s consent, we now have significant validation that this practice needs to be stopped.

The Cochrane Collaboration (an international not-for-profit organisation preparing, maintaining and promoting systematic reviews of the effects of health care) has released a comprehensive review of the science of fluoridation, with points that are nearly impossible to dispute. In short, fluoride doesn’t work to prevent cavities and has been proven to cause harm — in the form of dental fluorosis.

Fluorosis – mottled discolorations on teeth – is not purely aesthetic. It’s a visible sign that you’ve been exposed to this known developmental neurotoxin at excessive levels.

Music Is Love

Where Have All the Flowers Gone?

In 1967 we saw “The Summer of Love” gathering speed, setting the stage in San Francisco for a radical change that no one could have predicted. Well, maybe Nostradamus and Edgar Cayce saw it coming.

By the time we got to Woodstock, we were half a million strong. And right now the Baby Boomers are a bit shell-shocked that “The Woodstock Music and Art Fair: An Aquarian Exposition,” was a big, gigantic surprise 46 years ago.

A Different Approach to Guilt, Blame and Forgiveness

31st August 2015

By Michael J. Roads

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Guilt, blame and the need for forgiveness are very common problems for humanity. In this article I intend to approach this from a completely different viewpoint. As a spiritual teacher, I am very aware that in everyday life many people consider themselves as physical and mortal Beings who have a single life, and they had better get it right and not disappoint their parents and family. Most people literally live their life with a heavy burden of I must, I should or I should not. This is a hopeless path if we like good health and happiness.

I would like you to consider the bigger picture, and it is a very BIG picture.

First and foremost, you were not born and you do not die. You are an immortal Being. You are not a personality/body with a soul, as so many people assume. People talk about “my soul” as though it is “my handbag,” or “my car!” Begin to live your life as though you are an immortal soul with a temporary and mortal body/personality, for this is your truth. The key here is that you are an immortal soul. The movie of your life is not a ten or fifty or even a hundred year affair … it is forever. And that is a very long time!

Gingko Biloba: Boost Memory, Regenerate Neurons with This Ancient Plant

31st August 2015

By Sayer Ji

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

The world’s most ancient tree has something to teach us, and give to us, as far as promoting brain health and longevity goes.

Considering the fact that gingko biloba is the oldest known tree in existence (deemed for this reason a “living fossil“), isn’t it poetic how this plant has also been used to promote long life as both a food and medicine in traditional cultures as well?

Clearly, this plant has figured out a way to optimize longevity in face of many of the same adversities humans face, e.g. predators, infections, fluctuations in nutrient availability and climate, etc. And so, by consuming that plant, could it not lend some of its power and (phytochemical) wisdom to those imbibing it, as was commonly believed by ‘pre-scientific’ cultures throughout the world who considered plants their “allies”?

New Scientific Study Confirms Contamination From Climate Engineering

30th August 2015

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

The “International Journal Of Environmental Research And Public Health” has just published an in-depth research report, authored by Dr. Marvin Herndon, that directly implicates with 99% certainty the use of highly toxic coal fly ash as a base material in ongoing climate/geoengineering programs.

With the release of this study, which is published below in its entirety, the curtain of lethal deception continues to be pulled back, exposing the total tyranny of those in power. While they claim to be attempting to clean up our air, all available evidence makes clear the fact that highly toxic materials have been intentionally and continuously sprayed into our atmosphere as part of decades-long climate engineering experimentation programs. The newly published study is a very important breakthrough in the ongoing effort to expose the weather warfare assault on humanity.
