The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure.

GMO MONKEY BUSINESS



Ignoring the many existing alternatives our indigenous biodiversity and knowledge offers to address the public health emergency of iron deficiency, India's Biotechnology Industry Research Assistance Council (BIRAC) has signed an agreement with Queensland University (Australia) to provide AUD $1.4 million (US $1.44 million) and INR80 million (US $1.43 million) towards the cost of the Indian component to increase the iron content in banana through genetic engineering.

Dr. Dale of Queensland University who will receive this generosity from our government, and has already received $15 million from the Gates Foundation, does not have a single paper related to iron fortification of bananas . This work has been done by the Bhabha Atomic Research Team. Why is our tax money being wasted on this project?
