Our president has signed the Monsanto Protection Act! This serves to protect agriculture corporations from labeling and informing their consumers clearly on the genetically altered and in some cases, poisonous foods it sells them, and will allow the continuation of their destructive practices uninspected or controlled by agencies like the USDA or FDA. This goes beyond politics. Health is a survival issue. There is now international scientific proof that runs contrary to that of Monsanto.
"Fortunately, there have been studies done by Michael Antoniou of Earth Open Source and Dr. Giles-Eric Seralini of the University of Caan in France that say otherwise.
What Antoniou and Seralini have found is that GMOs, which are inundated with pesticides like RoundUp Ready containing glyphosate and 2-4-D, the active ingredient in Agent Orange, create numerous health problems, including birth defects, cancer, neurological imbalances, embryonic deaths, DNA damage, and fetal death. It's not rocket science to understand that when you eat a steady diet of these horrible chemicals, you will suffer disastrous health ramifications despite the fact that the GMO crops are designed to resist the heavy poisoning of the pesticides and herbicides."
GMO's The Ultimate Solution
Friday, January 04, 2013 by: Hesh Goldstein
Other countries have banned all GMO's. There are so many consequences and reasons for how and why this decision is bad for our future health and security that it goes beyond any one category such as economic considerations.
Mismanagement and mindset is at the root of many tragedies. Sadly, in this case, it seems our leaders have forgotten their priorities and are not aware of other organic food supply options they can take. We do not have to live with or eat genetically modified foods or foods with pesticides in them! If these products are not labeled, how can we know what we are eating?
Responsible scientists and informed voters need to work towards presenting a sound case to repeal this legislation before it is too late because it is a permanent change in our food chain that will affect our health and is irreversable -especially without saved heritage seeds, can pollute the soil, clean waters, and in time, present widescale genetic mistakes and alterations that can become difficult or impossible to stop.
