The Seven, a prophetic novel by Michael H Brown  A coming sign? Events by a sinister personage? Disaster? In his first work of fiction, Brown pens the driving, suspenseful, and deeply spiritual story of a mysterious government property that harbors secrets relevant not only to a young cop who tries to investigate strange goings-on, but also to an equally mysterious and incredibly powerful old priest who joins forces with him to solve the mystery -- and try to prevent an end-times-like disaster!

Did you know that up to 85 percent of American corn has been bio-engineered -- that its DNA has been reconfigured from what God made?

We are altering His Creation (as well, in many other ways, as destroying it).

If you don't know about the corn, it's understandable; companies aren't required to tell you in the labeling. That's a serious matter because at this point no one is sure what long-term (or even short-term) health effects may accrue from genetically-altered organisms.

We do know that when we meddle with what God made it has repercussions and we do know that some genetically-modified crops have had adverse effects on laboratory mammals. There are concerns that there also may be effects on the human umbilical cord (with reports of an increase in badly deformed ones). It may be linked to miscarriage. Thus is this a pro-life issue that belongs alongside abortion.

What are we doing? And how is it that we are forced now to eat genetically-engineered products because it is good for a handful of multi-national corporations?

Genetic crops are often altered so they can withstand more herbicides and pesticides -- which are produced by the same companies that now control the production of genetically-altered seeds, and which in some cases have been engineered so the seeds from new plants are unable to form plants that reproduce (forcing farmers to buy new seed each year).

More than ninety percent of soybeans, and about 88 percent of cotton (from which we get cottonseed oil), in the U.S. are also modified.

"It has been estimated that upwards of 70 percent of processed foods on supermarket shelves – from soda to soup, crackers to condiments – contain genetically-engineered ingredients," warns the Center for Food Safety. "A number of studies over the past decade have revealed that genetically engineered foods can pose serious risks to humans, domesticated animals, wildlife and the environment. Human health effects can include higher risks of toxicity, allergenicity, antibiotic resistance, immune-suppression and cancer."

Much of it is controlled by Monsanto Corporation of St. Louis (which also created PCBs). Microsoft mogul Bill Gates and his wife Melinda purchased $23 million in Monsanto stock two years ago, in the hopes that genetic crops can better feed the world. But is such food truly beneficial?.

Reports Discover: "[A] study found that three strains of modded crops -- MON 810 and MON 863, which are resistant to pests, and NK 603, which is fortified to withstand weed killer -- significantly disrupted the blood chemistry of rats who ate them. According to an article in New Scientist: With each of the three strains of maize, researchers say they found unusual concentrations of hormones and other compounds in the blood and urine of the tested rats, suggesting each strain impaired kidney and liver function. By the end of the trials, the female rats that were fed MON 863 had elevated blood-sugar levels and raised concentrations of fatty substances called triglycerides. Both are potential precursors of diabetes, according to [lead author Gilles-Eric Séralini of the University of Caen in France]."

Some even wonder if ingestion of these alien products has led to bizarre ailments such as Morgellon's (in which it's claimed strange colored fibers erupt from the skin; thousands report this; most cases occur in the U.S.). The wheat crop, some of which also has been altered, is also suffering.

The bread of life -- or death?

Perhaps it is no coincidence that strange weather and the current drought have targeted the Midwest -- and specifically corn, which in states like Iowa has wilted to almost nothing. Ditto for Nebraska.

"The worst American drought in more than half a century is driving up grain prices and deepening worries about global food shortages," said a report last weekend. "With much of the corn crop already lost, farmers are holding out hope for some weather relief that could help salvage the harvest of soybeans and others. But the latest data from the government Friday showed that the damage to the food supply chain already has been done."

“This is worse than 2008 -- we’re in kind of a perfect storm scenario,” said Ana Puchi-Donnelly, senior agricultural commodities trader at London-based Marex Spectron. “We won’t really know until the whole crop is harvested. We’re talking about the worst drought in the last 50 to 70 years in one of the hottest years on record. Shriveling supplies have sent grain prices soaring. Corn futures set an all-time high Friday to levels roughly 50 percent higher than the end of May, before the drought took hold. Soybean prices also jumped this week to more than 25 percent above pre-drought levels."
