One of the world’s food capitals fights back, but is it enough?
The Italian government recently approved a bill banning the use of laboratory-produced food and animal feed as it aims to safeguard the country’s agricultural heritage.
As a result, the Italian industry will not be allowed to produce food or feed “from cell cultures or tissues derived from vertebrate animals”, according to reports.
“Laboratory products in our opinion do not guarantee quality, well-being and the protection of our culture, our tradition,” said Minister Francesco Lollobrigida, a senior member of the Prime Minister’s party.
The administration has pledged to shield Italy’s food from technological innovations seen as harmful, and renamed the agriculture ministry the “Ministry for Agriculture and Food Sovereignty”.
This was great news to see, yet still, the war of next-generation GMOs in Europe is far from over.
Italy is a brave face in a sea of European Union countries that look to bow to the mad scientists.
(Let’s not forget the EU was established with the specific goal of achieving world government).
In response to these moves, the biotech industry is waging an ongoing battle to get its newly-advanced methods of genetic modification excluded from European GMO regulations.
This would mean that plants, animals and micro-organisms made using ‘genome editing’ new techniques like CRISPR-Cas, would not be subject to safety checks, monitoring or consumer labelling.
Behind this push to deregulate genome editing are lobby think-tanks like Re-Imagine Europa (RIE), which has a stated mission “…to reinforce Europe’s role as a global economic power in the 21st Century able to safeguard a prosperous future of peace, freedom and social justice for all its citizens”.
But here’s the thing.
For this taskforce alone, the think-tank was awarded a whopping €1.5 million grant from.. you guessed it.. our good friends at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The goal of the taskforce is described on the Gates Foundation website in clear terms: “..to engage with a broad set of European stakeholders on genome editing in the 21st century”.
Old Bill just loves ‘engaging’.
Furthermore, a significant number of European scientists active in biotechnology research are actively the ones lobbying for deregulating new gene editing techniques
One report shows 64% of the members of the EPSO working group on Agricultural Technologies and 32% of EU-SAGE members have a vested interest in the commercialisation of GM plants.
This means, as is the usual story, these individuals personally benefit from it financially, or do in terms of career development via their organisations.
And, we all know how much of Gates’ money is tied up in these organisations they work for too.
Well done to Italy for standing up against this new-age tech industry.
But the fight is far from over, as billions of dollars is poured into campaigns, television and social media propaganda, climate hysteria and more.. all designed to ‘transition’ society away from real foods.
FAKE FOOD PUSH
Bill Gates has been the money backer and public shaper behind the push to move the world towards synthetic meat production for years, pouring resources into initiatives that will make it happen.
Companies have already presented patents application for genetically modified fruit flies — which have been engineered to grow animal cells at scales to rival industrial meat production.
These companies say that by using the flies, it cuts costs by around 1000x compared to traditional methods of making growth factor, and there’s virtually no cost to feeding the flies.
In this process, the insect’s body effectively becomes a “standalone biofactory”.
And new companies have cropped up everywhere — raising billons of dollars amongst themselves to replace things like milk and meat with lab-grown or fermented replacements, according to data.
The programming has been targeted heavily at Western nations, not just in Europe.
Australians have recently been told we need to ‘give up our weekly steaks’ and turn ‘flexitarian’ to ‘meet climate change targets’ and hit net-zero by 2050, according to ‘academics’.
Cultivated meat, also known as lab-grown meat, has also been cleared for sale in the United States.
Upside Foods and Good Meat, two companies that make what they call “cultivated chicken,” say they have gotten approval from the US Department of Agriculture to start producing their ‘cell-based proteins’.
And it will soon be coming to supermarket shelves.
Indeed, it is an interesting future ahead for sure.
There has never been a more crucial time to become food independent and break free of massive corporate chains, networking with other like-minded people to make this happen.
Do not fall for the lies of the Gates-funded Frankenstein lobby.
Like Italy, we must all say ‘no’ and take control back ourselves.
