German drugs maker Bayer is closely watching the plant-based meat market which has seen booming demand in recent years. The company says it could potentially enter the market as a provider of an alternative protein source.
According to Bob Reiter, Bayer’s head of research and development at its crop science division, plant-based meat companies “are sourcing different types of crops and that also could create opportunity for us, being a company that is a plant-breeding company.”
Reiter said that in order for plant-based companies to produce at scale and to succeed, some efficient sources of amino acids and carbohydrates are required. That could bring them around to row crops that can be tilled and cultivated by machinery.
“We’re not going to scale peas to get to 10% of the alternative meat market,” Reiter said.
Meat-producing companies are massively cashing in on a trend of meat alternatives, selling sausages, burgers and imitation ground beef largely made from pea protein or soy…
Most of us are captives, though we probably don’t realize it. Sit in any restaurant, on any form of public transport or in virtually any place where people congregate, and it quickly becomes obvious that it is impossible for many of us to escape what experts are calling “the tyranny of the digital age.”
Glued to smartphone and tablet screens from a young age – the latest statistics say most kids now get their first smartphone at the age of 10 – we leave ourselves vulnerable to what behavioral scientist B.J. Fogg calls “captology,” voluntary enslavement to the invisible, manipulative power of technology.
If that sounds like paranoia, think again. Corporations have long been aware of the massive power of advertising, and social media and the internet have taken this manipulation to a whole new level.
And while we can with some careful decisions choose to avoid “normal” advertising, unless we avoid the internet completely, it is impossible to avoid the persuasive technology exploited by social media giants like Facebook and YouTube.
This has given rise to the question: Is it ethical to force people to endure this type of manipulation day after day?
The topic of electromagnetic field (EMF) dangers has been the subject of great debate over the years, but never has it seemed more pressing than now, as we face the transition into high-tech 5G technology. With smart home devices and utility meters becoming part and parcel of our daily lives, the potential for harm is significant – and EMFs have already been linked to a massive decline in global health.
First, many people will argue that the sun naturally emits some EMFs, but our exposure to artificial EMFs has reached unprecedented heights. Low-frequency EMF radiation, which encompasses that given off by smart meters, cell phones, Bluetooth, power lines, MRIs, and microwaves, has been listed as a class 2B probable carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer – right alongside indisputable dangers like lead and DDT.
It’s not just cancer that we need to worry about however, as people can experience a host of unpleasant symptoms after prolonged exposure. It’s more than a coincidence that so many people experience these problems just as technology takes over our lives.
In fact, 27 percent of American children are now said to live with chronic health conditions that impact their daily activities, while 60 percent of adults have at least one chronic condition and 42 percent experience multiple chronic conditions.
The health problems that people can experience from this exposure have even been given a name, electromagnetic hypersensitivity. Its symptoms can include vertigo, fatigue, sleep problems, depression, dizziness, trouble concentrating, anxiety, mood swings, mental decline, irritability, involuntary twitching, and slower healing from infections…
For those of you who believe the more tech the better, the following article would, needless to say, be a waste of your time. But for those who are aware of what the tech giants are up to, this article should not only be of great interest, but very alarming as well:
5G Agriculture – Food from Frankenstein Farming
By Julian Rose
Global Research, August 01, 2019
The director of development at Ericsson, Marcin Sugak, is excited. He has a new toy to sell to agribusiness farmers. This particular toy, he claims, is going to ‘overcome’ all the difficult new challenges facing agriculture today. It will be ‘A revolution’, he declares. According to the Ericsson corporation, with this new toy, farmers will be able to look at their plants and animals from a completely ‘new perspective’.
Just what might this new perspective be?
A 5G perspective, of course!
The lucky plants and animals will be surrounded by thousands of tiny gadgets that will transmit back to the farmer precise details of their state of health or sickness. However, what is not mentioned and understood is that these tiny gadgets will, in the process, shoot a steady stream of high powered millimetre wave length microwave frequencies into the farmer’s best cows and crops, precipitating them to sicken and die.
However, what is clearly important for this leading mobile phone corporation, is that the farmer will get ‘Real Time’ monitoring of exactly which part of his farm needs more or less agrichemicals, water and synthetic nitrate fertiliser – without him having to move his bum out of the office chair. Wow!
But oh dear, no one has told this farmer that he will also be zapped as he sits behind his 5G powered ‘smart’ computer watching – in Real Time – his 5G surrounded farm raised foods experiencing similar hits to those suffered by protesters in the USA when they were/are shot at by military 5G radiation weapons: burning skin, dizziness and disrupted nervous systems. A revolution indeed.
But wait, that isn’t all the tricks that these 5G gadgets can play, this 5G agricultural technology will also be used to irradiate his food on its way to the super store, as part of the ‘quality control’ techniques that supermarkets like to boast about. While, at the same time, it will supposedly be able to detect any problems that might show-up in the food and alert the seller of such.
But, one wonders, will it detect the problems it is causing the food by irradiating it in order to see if it has problems?
Hmm… where did I hear of something similar to all this before? Oh yes, of course, GMO! The ‘wonder technology’ that was going to sweep the world clean of any and all problems, enriching the lucky farmers who bought into it – as non-users went bankrupt and unfortunate producers and consumers of organic foods starved to death.
In this regard, what should be addressed are the large number of successful class actions being taken against Monsanto/Bayer for poisoning consumers with the glyphosate herbicide that accompanies all GMO plants in the field. 5G vegetables, like their GMO cousins, may not seem quite so appetising once buyers realise that they have altered DNA, microwaved vitamins and negative nutritional value.
Yes, 5G food will be the GMO food look-alike. Maybe those foolish enough to rely for their daily diets on supermarket produce, will like the fact that what they eat comes already microwaved. Most supermarkets consider dead food to be safe food; anything fresh and living obviously carries the serious risk of making people healthy.
So let’s get real. 5G agriculture will be the final nail in the coffin of any farmers foolish enough to adopt it. It will not save their bank balances just as genetically modified food production has ultimately failed the expectations of tens of thousands of farmers in the USA and beyond.
It is just one more toxic scam within the egregious global roll-out of 5G – and its attempt to monitor, control and irradiate all that lives, breathes and has the expectation of a life worth living.

Julian Rose is an international activist, writer, organic farming pioneer and actor. In 1987 and 1998, he led a campaign that saved unpasteurised milk from being banned in the UK; and, with Jadwiga Lopata, a ‘Say No to GMO’ campaign in Poland which led to a national ban of GM seeds and plants in that country in 2006. Julian is currently campaigning to ‘Stop 5G’ WiFi. He is the author of two acclaimed titles: Changing Course for Life and In Defence of Life. His latest book ‘Overcoming the Robotic Mind’ published by Dixi books, is available from this July. Julian is a long time exponent of yoga/meditation.
