Cuba Drops Genetically Modified Crops

June 17, 2015

“The policy of the country thus far is to not negotiate with anyone to produce transgenic seeds,” said Rodriguez. The use of such crops is not contemplated for “biosecurity” reasons, said Rogelio Pupo, another official.

Enlist Duo active ingredients linked to cancer

June 23, 2015 - National Resources Defense Council

Enlist Duo™, Dow AgroSciences's so-called solution to herbicide-resistant weeds, is the combination of two herbicides (glyphosate and 2,4-D) that have both been recently linked to cancer by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).

While the IARC assessment of cancer risks for 2,4-D and glyphosate are very significant, there are a host of additional reasons why Enlist Duo should not have been approved by EPA (for more details, see NRDC comments to EPA here), including:

What physicians think about GMO labeling

June 15, 2015

SERMO, the largest online community of physicians, found that a strong majority (68%) of physicians surveyed support mandatory labeling of genetically modified foods. This past April, SERMO polled physicians to gain insight on how important GMO labeling may be to the medical world by asking “Should food manufacturers be required to label products containing GMOs? Of 2,097 physician answers, 68% selected yes and 32% selected no. Of the top eleven states polled, New York ,California and Florida were the top three in favor of required labeling. Without a label, there is no traceability, no accountability and no liability. GMO LABELING IS DOCTOR RECOMMENDED.

100,000 German beekeepers call for GMO cultivation ban
Details

18 June 2015

The beekeepers counter that a piecemeal approach will not work. Bees fly up to eight kilometres in search of food, the DIB said, so a juxtaposition of GM crop cultivation zones and GMO-free zones within Germany would be "environmentally and agriculturally unacceptable".

“Bees know no borders," the DIB added.

President Obama has deeply rooted ties with Monsanto.

June 24, 2015

The new president filled key posts with Monsanto people, in federal agencies that wield tremendous force in food issues, the USDA and the FDA:

Also, lets take a look at all of the GMO crops that have "walked through the open door of the Obama presidency."

Monsanto GMO alfalfa.
Monsanto GMO sugar beets.
Monsanto GMO Bt soybean.
Coming soon: Monsanto's GMO sweet corn.
Syngenta GMO corn for ethanol.
Syngenta GMO stacked corn.
Pioneer GMO soybean.
Syngenta GMO Bt cotton.
Bayer GMO cotton.
ATryn, an anti-clotting agent from the milk of transgenic goats.
A GMO papaya strain.

This makes Barack Obama the most GMO-dedicated politician in America. Obama didn’t just change his mind, he appointed all the right people, and now all those people are working in order to support the GMO growth and distribution all over the country and abroad.

Hillary Clinton Endorses GMOs. White House Meals Are Organic

June 1, 2015

Reports indicate White House meals are organic. Michelle Obama’s book titled “American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America indicate the first family’s commitment to organic (non-GMO) foods in their personal diet.

First families continue getting wholesome pesticide/GMO-free foods while promoting frankenfoods hazardous to human health for Monsanto and other biotech giants.

It is sadly very harrowing that a country that professes to be a superpower did not put funding aside for R&D for alternatives, which in turn allowed the proliferation of unbridled biotech in every institution across the country, leaving researchers and scientists with integrity to fend for themselves. We have been locked into a mode of corruption to the core. Meanwhile, these scientists face additional challenges just to alert people of the horde of problems ahead.

DNA from GMOs can pass directly into humans, study confirms

June 24, 2014

The idea that DNA from genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is broken down in the digestive tract and rendered innocuous, a common industry claim, is patently false. A recent study published in the scientific journal PLOS ONE found that large, meal-derived DNA fragments from GMOs are fully capable of transferring their genes directly into the bloodstream, deconstructing the myth that transgenic foods act on the body in the same way as natural foods.

"One small mutation in a human being can determine so much, the point is when you move a gene, one gene, one tiny gene out of an organism into a different one you completely change its context," said David Suzuki, co-founder of the David Suzuki Foundation. "There is no way to predict how it's going to behave and what the outcome will be."

Argentina: Federal judge accepts environmental lawsuit against GMOs

21 June 2015

The lawsuit further argues for “a ban on the application of pesticides used for farming until their safety for the environment, ecosystems, biodiversity, the health of living beings, the cultural heritage of the Argentine people, and the sustainability of the production model is scientifically proven”.

Got allergies from your GMOs?

Michael Hansen, PhD, Senior Staff Scientist at Consumers Union, talks about the allergenicity of the Bt toxin insecticides in the DNA of GMO crops. It seems Monsanto has been hiding the truth, once again. No surprise there.
