Monsanto and the GMO Deception
"The fact is, it is virtually impossible to even conceive of a testing procedure to assess the health effects of genetically engineered foods when introduced into the food chain, nor is there any valid nutritional or public interest reason for their introduction," stated Professor Richard Lacey. Our own government is refusing to let the courts ban the sale of these deadly seeds. While the monster called Monsanto that sells this deadly stuff gets handouts from our government; organic farmers struggle to make a living.
Corn and soybeans are designed to withstand Glyphosate and since these two crops are used a lot...corn being used in many things so thus, we tend to eat corn in particular in much of everything. The people who spray these chemicals wear protective suits for and yet these biotech industries pretend that the foods sprayed are safe for everyone to eat. We are being bathed or medicated so to speak with these drugs which are chemicals.
Of course, Glyphosate is turning up in rain, streams and air near agricultural areas, and so we do the best we can and although we can't just avoid certain food or even if we buy organic, it is nigh to impossible to avoid contact with Roundup. The worse part is that, according to U.S. law, all of this is perfectly legal. I still will avoid certain things and buy organic as it is better for you but, with the realization that GMOs and Glyphosate is contaminating our entire planet.
One has to wonder when WHO which stands for World Health Organization is finally warning about GMOs and The International Agency for Research on Cancer, which reports to WHO, is finally reporting that Monsanto's Glyphosate is "probably carcinogenic to humans." That is a refreshing change from ignoring it.
To give an example, the FDA just approved genetically engineered salmon. This salmon is named AquAdvantage and is a combination of Atlantic Salmon, Chinook, and Ocean Eel-pout. There will be no labeling requirements. The FDA studies show that these salmon are more disease prone. Even if the salmon problems were found to be minimal we should have the right to evaluate and make a decision for themselves. In other words they should be competing openly on the open market, especially if they are supposedly this superior product. So this begs the question, what are Monsanto and other biotech companies hiding or afraid of!?
Pictured above is a picture comparing healthy Bee [B] and the unhealthy bee [A], it is obvious that the bees that are ingesting GMO pollen are having severe digestive problems so severe that the disease is terminal." clothianidin or thiamethoxam (another neonicotinoid). it is certain that the digestive shutdown is due to hard material in the digestive tract and that would compromise the immune system and there would be Circulatory problems arising without doubt. Is it possible that humans that with the rise of Colon Cancer are going through the same thing? This is indeed food for thought!
And Big Popcorn has a secret. How about this!! Popcorn seeds from many major suppliers are coated with a bee-toxic insecticide that is exterminating entire honeybee colonies. Americans consume over 2 billion pounds of this treat every year and if we don't stop this now honeybees will continue to be at risk!
The good news is that word is getting out about these nasty chemicals. Pop Weaver who is the second largest popcorn supplier in the United States have announced a plan to phase out use of Neonicotinoids. These pesticides are killing our bees. However, we need more popcorn producers to go along with this plan.
Our pollinators are dying at a fast rate and in 1914 a newspaper in Denver, Colorado said that “hundred thousand varieties of plants” were dependent on bees. But that little wild bee, half starved, ignorant, is the ancestor of all the civilized bees. And, what is more important, as the scientists point out, it is probably to her that we owe nearly all of our flowers and fruit. A hundred thousand varieties of plants would disappear from the earth if the bees did not visit them, carrying the pollen. This theme or mantra has been said by others including a 1921 a San Jose, California newspaper. Even way back many knew and recognized the importance of bees. Apparently Monsanto does not care.
Monsanto has created some of the most dangerous products on the planet. This includes Agent Orange (the Agent Orange Act of 1991, the VA now acknowledges certain cancers and other diseases as caused by Agent Orange. This means that veterans with these recognized diseases can qualify for disability compensation under “presumptive service connection.” However, many special rules apply) . Also dioxin, recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH)… and genetically modified seeds are part of this unhealthy mess Monsanto is behind. Just looking at those products tells me all I need to know about Monsanto. As for rBGH, you could not get me to buy dairy products from cows that have been injected with that stuff.
Feel free to believe what you want but I refuse to deal with Monsanto and its products if at all possible. I realize at a restaurant you cannot avoid this most of the time, but at home I bloody well try! By genetically engineering food whether it is plants or animals, these big chemical companies are changing them in a way that could never happen in nature.
They refuse to put "produced with genetic engineering", on food packages sold in the United States which many American food companies are trying to deceive the people who buy their groceries by mandating that GMOs be considered as "natural" under U.S. law. This is a pack of lies and in my opinion the same as deliberately trying to sicken people on purpose.
You probably will not see labels for GMO in America! Why, you might ask? The answer is simple. Because the food "czars" are already in place, and most politicians do exactly what the rich global investors tell them to do. Of course taking the millions in bribe money that's legalized through lobbying and insider trading helps to ease their conscience if they have one.
On 10/23/2015 I received quite a few e-mails about the federal government trying to pass the DARK ACT or Deny Americans the Right to Know in the Senate. Of course I have been getting these e mails for a couple years. But this bill will expand the federal powers in order to limit the ability of states to mandate the labeling of genetically modified ingredients in food. Remember States Rights if you are against this. This bill was passed through the House in July 2015.
There are many famous people against the DARK act including Chef Tom Colicchio. Here is a statement from him, "It’s not surprising that as a chef, I want to know what I am feeding my customers. It’s also not surprising that as a father, I want to know what I am feeding my family. What is surprising is that some in Congress are working so hard to keep consumers like me in the dark as to what’s in the food we eat." More and more consumers are taking an interest in the ingredients in the products they buy from the grocery store, including whether or not the food contains genetically modified organisms. My writing about this is to hopefully make you more aware of the problems with GMOs and Monsanto and to make you aware you should have the right to a choice about what you are making.
How can you make a choice when you are being lied to and there are no labels. For example, new strains of GM crops are producing toxic pesticides within their own tissues. The crops that are in question have been engineered to carry "pesticide-producing genes from the bacterial species Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt)." Companies in recent years have increasingly turned to crossbreeding different varieties of Bt crops which are now that now carrying numerous different strains of Bt toxin at once.
Researcher Angelika Hilbeck said, "Bt toxins are not fast-acting toxins. Even in target pests, Bt toxins don't kill quickly – it takes most susceptible insects a day or more to die. The Bt toxin in GM crops is expressed in the crop plant for months at a time. Residues linger in soil and aquatic systems."
She also stated, "Regulatory tests need to look at long-term and sublethal effects, because that is what non-target organisms are likely to be exposed to. Currently these tests are not required. Yet we found a lot of evidence in the scientific literature that non-target organisms such as ladybirds, water fleas, lacewings and even slugs are adversely affected by Bt toxins."
This research also shows that these Bt toxins will have toxic, long-term effects in mammals and humans that eat GM crops!
The deception and lies will keep coming until you, the consumer, refuse to buy their deadly products.
Mr. Soros is famous for being one of the most powerful and influential persons in world economics and whose speculations alone are said to have ‘broke the Bank of England‘ and the other thing he is less known for is that he is one of the major shareholders in the worlds largest GM Seed bio-technology corporation known as Monsanto.
The other billionaire in this mix is Bill Gates. He even filmed commercials for Monsanto’s GMOs, which propped them up as the ‘solution’ to world hunger. The United Nations even admitted that GMOs cannot fight hunger as effectively as traditional farming. When 900 scientists agree that GMO crops are not the answer to the world hunger problems as far back as 2008 and this was long before Bill Gates started is propaganda rally for GMOs.
Bill Gates even filmed commercials for Monsanto’s GMOs, propping them up as the ‘solution’ to world hunger despite even the United Nations admitting that GMOs cannot fight hunger as effectively as traditional farming. The cotton found in many women's hygiene products like tampons, cotton swabs and wipes, etc. have 85% Glyphosate contained in them. Also in hospitals the products that are used to help cure patients.
From GM watch comes this, "Since 2005, shepherds and farmers from different parts of India, particularly the states of Andhra Pradesh, Haryana, Karnataka and Maharashtra, have reported their cattle falling sick after [grazing] on genetically modified cotton or [having] been fed Bt cotton seeds and in some instances [they] have died. ... " This is what Bill Gates and George Soros want to own stock in.
Of course, this is besides the fact that Mr. Gates owns 500,000 shares of Monsanto. Then throw in the fact that The Gates Foundation, also known as the tax-exempt Gates Family Trust, has been in the process of spending billions of dollars. This is all done in the name of humanitarianism whose goal is to establish a global food monopoly dominated by genetically-modified (GM) crops and seeds. The Gates family's has a history of involvement in world affairs and so it appears that one of its new goals besides simply establishing corporate control of the world's food supply would be to reduce the world's population by pulling off this scheme. Thanks, Mr. Gates.
Gates is also trying to destroy rural farming worldwide. This ambitious effort is mainly through the 'Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa' (AGRA). This deprives poor African farmers of their traditional seeds, replacing them with the seeds of their companies first, finally by genetically modified (GM)." Yes, Bill Gates truly cares about African farmers let alone any farmers worldwide.... what a crock! He only cares about control, power and his own pocketbook. Do not be deceived by this man and what he is trying to pull, which would be the proverbial wool over your eyes.
There is so much information out there that I have only touched on a few things. I am not a scientist nor an expert on this topic but I can read and learn about the truth and I know when smoke is being blown up my backside. Stay safe and healthier by avoiding anything connected to GMOs.
