No need for condoms – GE corn can do the job


www.greenpeace.org

Austrian scientists fed mice over a course of 20 weeks a mixture of 33 percent Monsanto GE corn (NK 603 x MON 810) and non-GE corn.

These mice gave birth to less babies and lighter babies in their third and fourth litters. Mice fed on non-GE corn had babies as normal.

I didn't really believe at all the recent comments on ATS about how corn may be bad for your health until finding this. Practically every single food item in a modern-day supermarket has corn in it in one form or another, so needless to say this is very concerning to me!

Monsanto is the same company that is believed responsible for getting a team of Fox news reporters fired after they were just hired for serious investigative journalism, and wanted their first story to be on the negative health effects resulting from loading up cows with growth hormones.

Dam Monsanto.

monsanto corn is just plain evil, they are trying to steal the market so everyone HAS to grow their corn.

whats even worse, is their corn cant be harvested for seed for teh next season, you HAVE to buy a new batch of corn (seeds? ) every season, their are corn nazi's out their who report people to monsanto for using growing corn their not suppost to...

their was a REALLY goiod documentry on google vids about monsanto created by a french (possibly canadian) female reporter, but it got removed within 2 days, find that and youll see how evil this company is...it was a true eye opener to me, before seeing that i had no problems with GM food or crops.

EDIT :: i take that last sentance back, its been uploaded again.!

Fast Food Made Up Mostly of Corn
If you are what you eat, most Americans are an ear of corn, new research suggests.

A chemical analysis of popular fast foods reveals that some form of the grain appears as a main ingredient in most items—especially beef.


he researchers examined the molecular makeup of hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, and french fries purchased from three fast food chains in six U.S. cities.

"Out of the hundreds of meals that we bought, there were only 12 servings of anything that did not go straight back to a corn source," said study lead author Hope Jahren, a geobiologist at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu.

Its a great way to control population but could they have really engineered corn to do this on purpose?

They probably did do it on purpose. Corn has almost no nutritional value and is one of the most used food supplies. I'm guessing that all the corn we consume is affecting our health as a species.

Right on. Good find, Truthquest!

Check this wide open propoganda.


But we won't have to worry about GMO with all this "CHANGE" in the whitehouse.

Oopsy. Honest mistake I'm sure.

I'm confused here.. The study used non-GE corn, and GE corn.. So, does the food supply (in america) contain strictly GE corn, or can you find organic, natural corn? Does this apply to the UK? I was under the assumption that non-GE corn was generally used in food products - although i'm aware that there's a lot of artificial and genetically enhanced ingredients which go 'un-noticed'. Futhermore, would this not encourage depopulation, as a pose to population growth? (as the title suggests)

In the U.S. there are three main types of agricultural production. Organic, Natural (traditionally grown with approved pesticides), and Genetically Modified. Monsanto, among others has been flexing their muscles lately and have started to outlaw a lot of Organic/Natural crops in favor of Modified seed.

Guess who was just hand picked to become the Secretary of Agriculture?

Tom Vilsack. The guy politically responsible for this new strong arm tactic on traditional agriculture.

Monsanto: How to get rich without thinking of the wellfare of fellow humans. Then with the billions thrown their way, they use it to lobby to get their way... I think that when the 'writtings on the wall' many will see just how much GREED has killed this world!
