My name is Katie Anquandah. My maiden name is Katie Fox. I am an American, born and raised in the United States. I come from the state of Pennsylvania and named after the first European to come here, William Penn. meaning ‘Penn’s Woods’. As the land is deeply wooded with trees. He purchased the land from the Lenni Lenape tribe. My blood is Shawnee Native Indian and Quaker, the first European settlers. My great Grandfather was a chief of our Shawnee clan. He first sold land to the first whites that came here from Europe. Those whites have taken over America and have destroyed this beautiful land with their laws and money. I am writing this article to you, the uniquely, beautiful Ghanaian. You are so perfect in all your ways. I write this article to plead to you, save your land from the ones who want to destroy your heritage, to gain another dollar in their pockets.
Genetically engineered organisms (GMOs) were first developed by the Europeans. They are widely grown in North America (United States of America and Canada). GMO has been in the USA officially since 1990. In Canada, 80% of the salmon and potatoes ate is genetically engineered. The salmon cannot even swim well in the tank. Their bodies muscles are too weak. In America, 90% of our corn, soy, canola oil, cotton, and sugar in America are genetically engineered. 30 plants have been known to be genetically engineered in USA. The majority of our livestock in this country are fed genetically engineered organisms. The GMOs make the livestock very sick. When the animals are butchered their internal organs (liver, intestines etc.) are not safe for human consumption. Feeding the livestock, the engineered food or engineering the livestock to begin with causes the farmer to use high amounts of antibiotics. The animal meat then contains high amounts of hormones. This in turn causes our girls to go through menses at an early age. Now, let me ask you a serious question. Do you personally know how GMOs are made???
Let me explain, the seed of a grain of rice or corn is taken. Men take this grain into a laboratory. They crack open the seed. Then they extract the DNA of that grain of rice. The DNA is then examined. They study the structure of the DNA. Once they learn about the rice’s DNA sequence, they select a segment of the DNA to alter. Then they do one of two things. The first option is to splice of part of the original sequence and combine it with DNA from another organism. The second option is to take a needle and inject a specific part of the DNA with an herbicide, pesticide, or a live virus. After which, the men take another pure, unaltered seed and the injected seed. They take the DNA out of both seeds. Now through a process of cloning, the genetically engineered seed is created. SAY WHAT?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?
Citizens in my country are constantly suing these companies that are developing these organisms. We are fighting for GMOs to be labeled in our country. Currently, when we go to the market or grocery store, there is no way of knowing if the grain is natural or altered. Citizens are opening law suits because the GMO foods have caused them to develop TERMINAL illnesses such as cancer, stroke, heart attacks, kidney diseases and many more. Yet, time and time again, the GMO companies pay off the judges and the court case is overturned. These GMO companies make trillions of dollars a year. One of the main ways they make money is taking their altered organism to struggling economies. They offer leaders and farmers money to grow their GMO crops. Then they come take the harvest and sell it for top dollar, reaping a huge profit. Therefore, they have money to pay off judges and silence others.
At this point you should be screaming out loud in shock. But wait, there is more. Let me tell you how the body feels when you add genetically engineered food to your simple diet. First off, the food looks too perfect. There are no bug holes, no spots where insects nibbled, and no parts that easily mold. Secondly, when the GMO is cooked and taken, it does not digest well. There is burping and hiccups. It sits in your stomach and gives you a sick feeling. The GMO goes into the blood stream and develops into cancer cells or feeds cancer cells. So, then the cleaning organs like the liver, kidneys, gallbladder, and spleen now have to work hard to rid the body of GMOs. Even in some people these major organs of the body become overloaded with toxins, form stones and stop functioning. Liver disease is very common in my country. Also, it also depletes the body of essential fatty acids causing a lower intelligence level and a struggling internal body system. Thirdly, when the GMO hits your intestines, it kills off good bacteria in your gut and feeds bad bacteria. This causes emotional upsets, slow thinking, and a weakened immune system. Fast forward some years of eating genetically engineered organisms, cancer develops in the soft tissue and organs. Cancer caused by GMOs is usually found in the breast tissue, prostate, stomach, oesophagus and intestines. The men’s sperm count becomes lowered if not completely depleted. Woman become barren, unable to produce children. Those that are able to give birth, are unable to produce breast milk for the baby. It is quite common to meet a third and fourth generation Americans and have them tell you I was unable to produce milk when I delivered the child. Therefore, the mothers are relying on man made formula to feed their infants. Growing a child on genetically engineered formula results in childhood obesity, due to GMO toxins being stored in the subcontanious layer of fat, extremely LOW LEVELS OF I.Q., grade school children here can not read and write, a weakened immune system resulting in constant sicknesses affecting the children, the babies have such physical pain in their tummies they scream without being able to be comforted. In my country, they call this colic. Lastly, the mothers often wake up one morning and the infant is dead in the crib. This happens so often here. The country refers to an infant dying sudden as infant death syndrome.
Over the years, I have met many foreigners. Meaning they were not born here, in the U.S.A. and neither were their parents. People come from all over the world to live here. Most of the immigrants were born in Nigeria, China, and India. I have seen plenty of people migrate here and within a matter of 10 years, they become ill and start having health issues. It is real. Sickness starts in their bodies usually after one decade, no matter what color their skin is. Africans included.
There are particular studies that have taken place concerning GMOs. One study, which was conducted inside. The study took two groups of mice. One group was fed only GMOs for three generations. The other group was fed non-GMO food. The GMO mice started to develop lumps of cancer in the second generation and stopped producing breastmilk in the third generation. Thus, not being able to produce a fourth generation. The non-GMO mice had no issues with cancer or the production of milk or litters. Another alarming study was conducted by a well-known GMO company prior to the mass production GMO corn. The GMO corn seeds were placed in dry African soil. They grew without any rain fall or irrigation system. The woman in the local village were given the GMO corn. After eating the GMO corn for several seasons, the woman because infertile.
Now let’s talk about what it does to the environment. Bees, ladybugs and other similar insects pollinate plants. When the said insect lands on the GMO plant and consumes the pollen from that plant it often falls down dead. When an animal such as a gecko or lizard eats a pollinating insect that has digested the GMO, the reptile often dies. These GMOs cross with plants in the already existing environment and create weeds that are almost impossible to get rid of. So, nature fights back. Nature trying to kill off this GMO plant. But, because it’s DNA is engineered, nature can not eliminate the plant. In America, the GMO’s have heavily destroyed the environment. Our bees are going extinct. Allergies are out of control and unmanageable. Our government often clones ‘predator insects’ to try to put nature back into balance. Which, does not work it only creates scary insects that we now have to live with. Chemicals are sprayed on our heads from planes popularly called chemtrails.
This year, I read the Daily Graphic. Someone, had brought it with them from Ghana on their visit. There were two articles that I found alarming. The first, local rice farmers were pleading the government for help. The crops were finished and they needed a machine to harvest the grain. After much effort, the farmers received the machine. Yet, rice farmers in the Volta region were about to lose their crops due to not having a machine to harvest the grain. It is a big, fat lie that GMO crops are needed to feed Ghana. There are local rice harvests going into danger of rotting. The second article was one of which concerned correspondence between President Donald Trump and President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. Unless you live under a rock, I am sure you heard about it. Ghana was referred to as a ‘shithole’ country. Ghana responded that they would not accept such insults. However, Ghana has accepted a GREATER INSULT by accepting GMO, which is originally from the USA. So, I call on the citizens of Ghana and ask why do you insult yourselves by adopting the white man’s way of life?
The Country Peru has outlawed GMO cultivation and importation. Good for them. I petition and ask the President of Ghana, Members of Parliament, Ministries, Judiciary, Law makers, Media, Journalist and All Citizens of Ghana to pass a law to completely OUTLAW GMO importation, GMO cultivation, GMO organizations and GMO companies out of Ghana. Give it a big boot!
I PLEAD WITH YOU, DO SOMETHING. ACT NOW! GMOs ARE REALLY SCARY. PROTECT YOUR NEXT GENERATION. SECURE THE SOVEREINTY OF YOUR PURE ENVIRONMENT. DO NOT SIT ON YOUR BUTT AND WAIT FOR THE GOVERNMENT. GET UP AND STORM THE MINISTRIES. STAND UP AND STORM THE MINISTERS HOMES. GET UP AND BURN THE GMO CROPS. MONSANTO HAS RESUMED WORK IN GHANA. THEY ARE GROWING GMO RICE AND COWPEAS IN THE ASHANTI REGION. THEY ARE GROWING GMO COTTON IN THE NORTH. YOU, THE PEOPLE, ARE THE GOVERNMENT, AND YOU, THE PEOPLE, ARE FIRE. GO!
