an edit add - we are the bread basket of the world (+Canada) so are we exporting sickness & death?

When the FDA was constructing their GMO policy in 1991-2, their scientists were clear that gene-sliced foods were significantly different and could
lead to "different risks" than conventional foods. But official policy declared the opposite, claiming that the FDA knew nothing of significant
differences, and declared GMOs substantially equivalent.
GMOs were rushed onto our plates in 1996. Over the next nine years, multiple chronic illnesses in the US nearly doubled -- from 7% to 13%.
Allergy-related emergency room visits doubled between 1997 and 2002 while food allergies, especially among children, skyrocketed. We also witnessed a
dramatic rise in asthma, autism, obesity, diabetes, digestive disorders, and certain cancers.
If GMOs are indeed responsible for massive sickness and death, then the individual who oversaw the FDA policy that facilitated their introduction
holds a uniquely infamous role in human history. That person is Michael Taylor. He had been Monsanto's attorney before becoming policy chief at the
FDA. Soon after, he became Monsanto's vice president and chief lobbyist.
This month Michael Taylor became the senior advisor to the commissioner of the FDA. He is now America's food safety czar. What have we done?
I can't read Russian - aargh but they figure US will die from their own foods.
Russian scientists further claim in these reports that the United States mass vaccination of their population this past year for the supposed H1N1
Swine Flu epidemic was instead a “very clumsy attempt” to stop the spreading of this mysterious lung disease by injecting into these peoples a DNA
“fix” to this genetically modified corn, and which by all the evidence available, they state, appears to have failed.
Many farmers are fed up with Monsanto's ruthless use of litigation. All over the United States, the wind is carrying Monsanto's genetically altered
seeds into neighboring fields. Monsanto regularly sends out investigators to visit farms and to test whether any Monsanto strains have shown up on
those farms. If they have, then Monsanto proceeds to sue the living daylights out of those farmers.
The truth is that many natural health experts claim that there is a growing body of evidence that genetically modified foods have a link to food
allergies, intestinal damage, autoimmune disorders, anemia, diabetes, infertility and even cancer. Independent scientific studies done on the effects
of genetically modified have produced some incredibly troubling results.
93 Percent Of Soybeans And 80 Percent Of Corn In The U.S. Grow From Seeds Genetically Modified By Monsanto
According to the research, animals fed on three strains of genetically modified maize created by the U.S. biotech firm Monsanto suffered signs of
organ damage after just three months.
The findings only came to light after Monsanto was forced to publish its raw data on safety tests by anti-GM campaigners.
Our analysis clearly reveals for the 3 GMOs new side effects linked with GM maize consumption, which were sex- and often dose-dependent. Effects were
mostly associated with the kidney and liver, the dietary detoxifying organs, although different between the 3 GMOs. Other effects were also noticed in
the heart, adrenal glands, spleen and haematopoietic system. We conclude that these data highlight signs of hepatorenal toxicity, possibly due to the
new pesticides specific to each GM corn. In addition, unintended direct or indirect metabolic consequences of the genetic modification cannot be
The company which brought you Agent Orange & the watered down version Round-up as well as bovine growth hormones to make cows give more (now bad)
milk. You gotta love a company like that. All these troubles & still going strong. Can a wooden stake large enough ever be found to put this monster
down? Don't think so.
