Genetically Engineered Food: Vintage Dreamland from 2000



August 29, 2014



In 2000, Dreamland was one of the first places where the alarm was sounded on genetically engineered foods. Since then, the genfoods industry has used its vast wealth to turn back any and all attempts to enforce labeling.

Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have made an astonishing breakthrough: they believe that they now have the ability to erase feelings of fear or anxiety.The researchers discovered which brain circuits attach emotions to memories but, more importantly, they worked out how to reverse this link.

Is the CDC Covering Up a Vaccine-Autism Link?




The link between autism and the Measles, Mumps and Rubella vaccine (MMR) has been proposed for years, but has always been emphatically denied by the medical profession.

Cellphones Data Can Now Track Anyone Anywhere, And The Technology Is Available To Anyone




New surveillance systems are being offered to governments around the globe, giving them the ability to track the movements of almost any cellphone carrier.

The new technology is utilising standard cellular network data, which must constantly monitor the locations of their customers in order to allow calls and messages to be delivered.



This seems like a fairly straightforward procedure, and one which usrealise or expect is that surveillance systems are secretly colleers generally accept as necessary; what users probably do not cting these records to map the travel patterns and locations of each individual over long periods of time, according to marketing documents and experts in surveillance technology.
