Why Label GMOs? Monsanto Shares Plunge-Latest GMO news

Which of the following is true:

1. Russia considers ban on all GMO food products
2. Miley Cyrus comes out against the labeling of GMOs in Washington State
3. President Obama is negotiating secret free-trade legislation (TPP) that could make the labeling of GMOs illegal everywhere
4. Breaking Bad Final Episode contained a cameo by Miley Cyrus

If you picked #1 and #3 have a piece of cheese!  Both true! Funny how we all know about Breaking Bad and Miley Cyrus while only a few know about TPP trade legislation negotiations or the fact that GMOs represent the greatest health issue (severe allergies, adhd, depression, obesity, organ  damage, infertility, hormone disruption), environmental issue (chemical pollution, soil damage, cross contamination of  normal plants, increased pesticide use), legal issue (commercial GMOs are based on the patenting of life forms, even animals have been patented) and social issue (the death of scientific integrity, complete corporate control of our food supply, death of small farms) OF OUR DAY!
So lets get GMOs labeled here in the good old USA while we BOYCOTT them!  Do your health a favor, do your kids a favor, do the earth a favor, do your neighbors a favor and refuse to eat GMOs.  Do it with love!  Send $5 to Washington state to help counter the 17 million dollar advertising budget of Monsanto (Agent Orange) and Dupont (C8 Teflon) and Bayer (Zyklon-B), the major bio-tech players.  GMO food products are a complete scientific scam, good only for chemical company profits.  Why are they running food safety at the FDA?
Monsanto shares plunge on reduced seed sales.  Even though it’s product is guaranteed a profit via the ethanol corn program.  Any corn grown in the USA is guaranteed a market and a profit from the ethanol program, even though it takes more energy to convert the GMO corn into fuel than you get out of the fuel.  “The study concludes that the cumulative energy consumed in corn farming and ethanol production is six times greater than the power the ethanol provides in a car engine.”
HOW DO YOU BOYCOTT GMOs?  Eat only ethically raised organic meat- because most GMOs go towards feeding livestock in massive, hideous factory farms called CAFOs.  Our only sane response is boycott.  We must pressure NYC to serve GMO free food in NYC school cafeterias.  schoolfood.info

Whole Foods and many other stores also sell free range meat.  It is well worth the extra cost.  Your health will greatly improve.  Avoid farm raised fish, and eat only organic milk and cheese.  Shop at health food stores.  Factory farmed food is almost devoid of real nutritional content.  For example- factory farmed fish have almost no omega-3 fats!  Have a look at at this chart comparing the nutritional content of GMO corn against natural corn.  A lot of people don’t want to spend a little extra for ethically raised meat but will gladly spend $4 on a Strabucks coffee.  What’s up with that?
Avoid any product containing soy oil, corn oil or cottonseed oil as the primary GMO crops are soy, corn and cotton, unless it says organic.  Also, if a product is labeled USDA Organic, or Non-GMO Project it is GMO free.
According to Dr. Huber, likely the leading GMO expert in the world, an award-winning, internationally recognized scientist, and professor of plant pathology at Purdue University for the past 35 years-the following three facts are some of the most important that everyone needs to understand about GMOs:

  1. Despite what the media and so-called “experts” proclaim, there are NO peer-reviewed scientific papers establishing the safety of GMO crops.According to Dr. Huber, so far, no one has been able to establish that there’s a safety factor to either the genetically engineered proteins (i.e. the foreign proteins produced by the genetically modified plant) or the chemicals we’re consuming in ever larger quantities as a result of the genetic engineering process.There are, however, both clinical and peer-reviewed scientific papers showing the hazards of GMO crops, including harmful secondary effects.

    “A group of us met with top USDA administrators. They assured us that they based all their decisions on peer-reviewed science. When we asked them if they would share any of that, they were unable to produce any,” he says.

  2. Epidemiological patterns show there’s an identical rise in over 30 human diseases correlated with our increased usage of glyphosate and the increased prevalence of genetically engineered proteins in our food.
  3. Genetically engineered foods, as well as conventional crops that are heavily sprayed with glyphosate (the active ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup), have lower nutrient density than organic foods. They also contain high amounts of pesticides with documented harmful health effects, along with novel, highly allergenic, proteins. source

Could YOU Be Altering Your OWN Genes When You Eat GMOs?

As discussed by Dr. Huber, research clearly shows that the novel proteins created in genetically engineered plants are highly allergenic, with the capability to promote diseases like cancer and liver or kidney failure. But Dr. Huber points out that there are other factors involved as well, which have some scientists concerned about the spread of those genes into the human gut… Not only do GMOs alter your intestinal microflora, but research shows that human cells are also able to transfer those novel genes, thereby affecting the human genome.

“Especially with generation two genetic engineering, called gene silencing—that section of the nucleic acid can actually be picked up or attached to your own genes, and then start shutting down your own physiology in that process… It’s well-documented in the scientific literature.”

Indeed, last year, University of Canterbury Professor Jack Heinemann released results from genetic research he conducted on this type of GE wheat, which showed without “any doubt” that molecules created in the wheat, which are intended to silence wheat genes to change its carbohydrate content, may match human genes and potentially silence them. If that’s not a concern, I don’t know what is! University Professor Judy Carman agreed with Heinemann’s analysis, stating in Digital Journal:6

“If this silences the same gene in us that it silences in the wheat — well, children who are born with this enzyme not working tend to die by the age of about five.”

Heinemann reported that his research revealed over 770 pages of potential matches between two GM genes in the wheat and the human genome. Over a dozen matches were “extensive and identical and sufficient to cause silencing in experimental systems,” he said. Experts warned that eating the wheat could lead to significant changes in the way glucose and carbohydrates are stored in the human body, which could be potentially deadly for children and lead to serious illness in adults.

Scientists, ethics, and the GMO debate

The conversation will revolve around the courage of independent scientists who value the importance of unbiased research and who have a firm understanding of the ethics of scientific research.  In the interest of professional integrity, they must and many have demanded the need to fully and comprehensively research GMO food crops without restrictive research mandates that fail to take into account the impact of biotechnologies on our health and environment and without the threat of the “purse” from the biotech industry.

 

Attacks on Health Reporters and Their Readers Are Escalating

For more than two decades, Monsanto has been poisoning our water, our soil, our food.

But right now, the Biotech Bully is focused on one thing: Poisoning the minds of voters in Washington State – voters who are still on the fence about I-522, an initiative to label GMOs in food sold in grocery stores.

Last week, Monsanto and friends launched a statewide, anti-labeling, anti-I-522 ad blitz. It looks a lot like the $46-million worth of negative, deceitful ads they unleashed last year this time in California. Ads that helped defeat California’s GMO labeling initiative.

Monsanto, DuPont, Dow, Bayer, BASF and the Grocery Manufacturers Association (representing the junk food gang) are footing the bill. With almost $12 million (so far) to spend, they’re running ads that are dishonest and misleading. But clever. And convincing.  OCA

BOYCOTT!  FIGHT WITH YOUR FORK!
