Gen-M, “Generation Monsanto,” the first generation of humans force-fed genetically modified foods, hasn’t reached reproductive age yet (they were born in the late 1990s). But, if a critical mass of animal feeding studies are any indication, the millennial generation, reared on Food Inc.’s unlabeled “Frankenfoods” can look forward to a long-term epidemic of cancer, food allergies, sterility, learning disabilities, and birth defects.

Richard Haigh doesn’t look like your typical African pastoralist. Unlike many Africans who grew up tending cattle, sheep, goats, and other livestock, Richard started his farm in 2007 at the age of 40. He quit his 9–5 job at a nongovernmental organization and bought 23 acres of land outside Durban, South Africa.

The Bill Gates Foundation and the World Bank sponsored a plan to
eradicate polio in Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country. The OPV
vaccine used, itself was a cause of polio in hundreds of Nigerian
children. Gates and the World Bank have not helped these children, that their vaccine paralyzed. But it is an epic fraud to ignore the horrific childhood mortality in Nigeria. This is an enormous health care crisis, with as many as a million children a year dying from preventable diseases. The Gates Foundation is carrying out a propaganda campaign to praise its global “charitable” activities. The Gates Foundation is also working with Monsanto, a very predatory corporation. Monsanto is attempting to control the ownership of crop seeds. This corporate alliance should be investigated to remove the tax exempt status of the Gates Foundation.
