Finally, some good news, that is if the study is done by independent scientists with no connection to biotech. 25 million is pennies to biotech.

Note this is not being launched in the USA or Canada, where citizens are being poisoned daily without their knowledge or consent. Remember that when voting. What have your heard Schummer, Gillibrand or Cuomo say about gmo food? Nothing. Vote out the incumbants.


World’s Largest Ever GMO Safety Study Set for London Launch

"On Wednesday Sustainable Pulse received a media advisory regarding the launch of a $ 25 Million international study on GMO and pesticide safety at The Farmers Club in London, UK on November 11.

Infant formula:

STATESMANJOURNAL

Most food labeled 'natural' contains GMOs, tests show

"I think most moms purchasing infant formula have no idea they are feeding their baby a product that has been genetically engineered to survive exposure to high levels of chemical pesticides," said Aurora Paulsen, with the Center's Portland office.

The news comes on the heels of a recent Consumer Reports Study that found genetically engineered ingredients in many processed foods labeled "natural."

The Case Against GMOs

An Environmental Investor’s View of the Threat to our Global Food Systems

Conclusion, in part:

"The arguments made in favor of the current generation of GM products simply fail to hold up to extended time periods or independent testing. Instead, GM corporations manipulate regulators, research institutions, and media outlets. These companies have been exposed for these practices time and time again, but still insist that they have the customer’s best interests at heart. Monsanto’s recent refusal to release data regarding the effects of their pesticides and GM crops on bee populations is indicative of their myopia and disinterest in any well-being beyond their sales revenues."

"All things considered, the risks associated with GM agriculture outweigh the benefits. While genetic modification as a tool is neither inherently negative nor positive, the history of its use indicates that the GM product is largely deployed to increase short-term profits for agricultural biotech corporations at the expense of consumers, small farmers, and the environment. Industrialized agriculture is enough of a sustainability challenge on its own, and examples from across the globe illustrate the extra level of distress that comes with adding genetically modified organisms into this system."

Although improved over the first draft, the FDA’s proposed food safety rules are still onerous enough that they could jeopardize the existence of many of our safest, local organic farms.

Tell the FDA that small farms are not food processing “facilities” necessitating expensive oversight and testing. (It could cost a family farm over $12,000 a year to comply!) Irrigation water should not have to meet the same safety standards as a community swimming pool. And it should be clear that older farmers, without Internet access, or the Amish, can submit reports on paper rather than the web.

At a minimum, please join farmers and their urban-allies by signing on to the letter below. Additionally, we especially encourage fresh market vegetable farmers to also, very carefully, read the full action alert and submit your individual comments, based on your own farming experience, to the FDA. Your livelihoods are at stake.

I just found out about this. I would never consumer any cereals from these companies. I don't trust them.

They could get non gmo vitamins but it would cost more.

I get my non gmo vitamins here, verified by the Non Gmo Verified Project. The brand is "Nutrigold." Look for the logo with the butterfly.

Farm Bureau Member Asks House Subcommittee to Pass Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act

WASHINGTON, D.C., December 10, 2014 – Farm Bureau member Stacey Forshee today called on Congress to help consumers understand the difference between real food safety concerns and marketing ploys by passing H.R. 4432, the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act. Forshee, who is also a Kansas Farm Bureau board member, testified before the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health.

“As a hard-working American family who lives off the land and the products it provides, we would never allow a product we grew or raised to enter the food supply unless we knew it was safe,” Forshee said. A farmer and cattle rancher with her husband in north central Kansas, Forshee has seen firsthand the marked benefits of biotechnology crops, including higher yields over fewer tillable acres, reduced pesticide use and improved soil conservation.

The Forshees are not alone in seeing these benefits. Since 1996, more than 17 million farmers have added in excess of 110 million tons of soybeans and 195 million tons of corn to the world’s food supply. Farmers also avoided using 1.2 billion pounds of pesticide by choosing to grow genetically enhanced crops over conventional corn and soybeans.

Forshee praised the Food and Drug Administration’s science-based approach to labeling food products for safety, health and nutrition information. Labeling foods with biotechnology traits “will mislead consumers into believing such food products are materially different, create undue risk and should be avoided – all of which are scientifically false,” she said. Veering from FDA’s safe and proven approach would undermine the livelihoods of farmers and ranchers across the country, while doing nothing to further food safety, Forshee said.

I watched this. It's worth watching so that people can see how politicians work on behalf of their corporate contributors. These people are really good actors/lyers.

Biotech is big. Look on Craig's List, there's jobs everywhere for biotech.

You know that old saying that you can fool some of the people some of the time but not all of the time?

Parents are waking up and wondering why their kids have all these allergies, ailments, reactions, etc.

Biotech is going down via "dollar voting." You can buy off my government but you can't tell me where to spend my dollar.

Don't believe me? Just ask my farmer.

There are a few honest politicians.

From GMO Free NY: "Great op-ed by Massachusetts State Rep Marjorie Decker in which she frames GMO labeling as an economic justice issue. I've made this same argument to many members of the NY legislature, but it's great to see a legislator making this argument to the public."

"Your physician reads these journals, treatment decisions are changed, care is affected, drugs are prescribed – all based on Big Pharma-funded medical ghostwriter-prepared journal articles from physicians who fraudulently claim to be the study authors. Then you walk out of your doctor’s office with a prescription for a drug that may or may not kill you, based on treatment protocols written by doctors like Biederman who are on the take from Big Pharma."

PBS interview from 1997:

DH: The general impression out there, by most people, is that there is quite a bit of testing that goes on before any product gets out on the market.

TC: There have been safety nets. But unfortunately the safety net that we used as our model was this 70 kilogram adult male. And we did not look at what happens during embryonic development in the womb or in the egg. And from the minute the sperm enters the egg, and this individual begins to develop, this whole process is driven by chemicals called hormones: first hormones that came with the egg from the mother and then gradually, as the cells split and split and divide and begin to form an organism, they begin producing some of their own hormones, but not much.

These chemicals are working at a concentration of 1/10th of a trillionth of a gram. That is all it takes of a hormone to make a change in how an individual develops in the womb.

Now, we are talking about chemicals that are getting in the human body at parts per million, parts per billion, parts per trillion. That is a lot higher than what the system operates within. And we didn't understand this. So testing chemicals on a fully grown individual who has developed and isn't developing any more, it would take a much larger dose of something to change the way that individual functions. Now we have to go back and think about what happens with humans those first 266 days from conception to birth.

Letter sent to Dr.Landa regarding the HR 4432 Hearing:


To Dr. Landa,

Moms Across America, a national coalition of Unstoppable Moms, with over 310 leaders in 44 states, were shocked by your statements at the HR4432 Dark Act Hearing. We ask you to clarify and retract your statements regarding there being no material diifference and no evidence of harm from GMOs.

We are positive, as an intelligent and informed man, with a team of scientists, that you have been privy to the many scientific studies which document harm from GMOs and related chemicals.

What the Energy and Commerce committee, you and the EWG representative failed to address was the fact that GMOs, albeit a foreign protein with plenty of studies showing harm alone, are inantely tied to Roundup ( glyphsoate) and discussion of GMOs cannot be intelligently had without including Glyphosate and Roundup. There are over 1700 studies and reports on GMOFREEUSA.com of harm from GMOs and glyphosate. We have attached several to this email.

Your statement in the HR 4432 was false, we are sure, as a protector of the American people, someone who works with the EPA, (whom we gave at least 30 studies showing harm from glyphosate) You must know that a there have been studies from Russia and France on rats, out for years, showing significant harm to rats consuming GMO feed. You cannot claim you do not know unless you are willfully not doing your job and not reading the scientific studies that exist regarding the most widely used herbicide in the world of which 80% of GMOs are genertically engineered to withstand.

So you are either not doing your job or you are lying.

Either way we request you retract your statement and find the courage to do your job and protect the American people. Our children need leaders of integrity.

1 out of 2 of our children have a chronic illness in America. We have a health crisis on our hands that will bankrupt America in 13 years if it continues. However, we moms see our children GET BETTER when they avoid GMOs and related pesticides and eat organic. We see autism allergies, asthma, auto immune, fibromyalgia, colitis and more, vastly improve or dissapear altogether when they do not eat GMOs and related pesticides. Pesticides/Herbicides have increased up to 26%per year since the use of GMOs. They deliver toxic chemicals to humas via food. Glyphosate is an antibiotic and destroys the gut bacteria, where 70% of our immune system lies, hence the skyrocketing illnesses.

You must admit that there are health concerns related to GMOs and related pesticides. You must take the precautionary principle and protect our children. Autism has been linked to glyphosate for two reason, glyphosate destroys gut bacteria and there is a gut brain connection, and glyphosate breask down the blood brain barrier, allowing toxins from the environment and vaccines into the brain. It is a mathematical fact that in 20 years from now 1 out of 2 children will have autism if we continue at the current rate of diagnosis. Is this the legacy you want to leave?

Or will you say, I stood up to the oligarcy. I stood up and made a difference for the future of America? Will you Be The One to protect the future of America?

We understand you will not say that GMOs cause harm, because then you could not legally allow them in food whatsoever and suddenly 80-90% of our food crops would be barred from our food system and our economy would collapse. So don't do that... yet...just change your determination that there is a material difference between GMOs and conventional food and require them to be labeled. Close that loop hole. When GMO food is labeled the food manufacturers will switch over to non GMO. It will take time, but our economy will shift and not collapse.

And while you are at it, do not allow Roundup and toxic chemicals to be present in our food, especially baby formula. If anyone has to wear a Hazmat suit or cannot touch our food for days after spraying with chemicals that are recognized endoccrine disruptors, that food is not fit to eat. These chemicals do not dry off, they do not wash off, they do not cook off. We eat them and they are showing up in our tap water, urine and breastmilk.

This practice is not conducive to a strong future for America. It is your duty to protect our future above anything else. Please do so now.

Thank you

Moms Across America
