What makes me angry about the GMO food is;
1) They influenced lawmakers so it isn't even labelled.
2) "Organic" or non-GMO foods (not even sure if Organic precludes GMO), costs more -- thus, if it is dangerous, that means poor people are forced to
feed their kids the cheap, estrogen-laced Soy and liver destroying Corn. Only with money can you "opt out."
3) We have no idea, nor defense, if this is a plot to make people tired, sick and infertile. It's certainly likely that the transgenics can have an
influence on allergies and the mushroom-based insecticides inside many fruits and vegetables are certainly a culprit.
When does it become "self defense?" The BP oil spill... nuclear reactors getting run by the lowest standards to preserve profits while we are
chastised by "experts" who talk about safe technologies that never get used ... Franken-foods from huge agribusinesses when there is NOT a shortage,
allowed to preserve THEIR profits but cut their costs by cloning cows, lowering standards, and crossing genetic pools.
Now, instead of implementing Solar -- we have companies "Fracking" coal out of the ground. Which poisons water and even sets some sinks on fire from
It's all a huge experiment, while organizations that ONCE UPON A TIME, protected the public good, are defanged or used to provide cover for their
industries (like the FDA),.. eventually and inevitably, some "accident" will happen that cannot be ignored or excused, or covered up by paid shills
I'm doing my best to clean up my family's diet -- but it is not easy. And I have no guarantee that after I take these efforts, some of Monsanto's
franken-genes haven't already ruined my liver. I have no guarantee that my wife's breast cancer wasn't caused by estrogen-like plastics in the food
and water. The PROBLEMS are all on the public, and the BENEFITS only go to corporations like Monsanto. It's not like we get a discount and better
food because they rake in billions. The food we ate in the 1970's was better for us than the food we eat in 2011.
When do we get the progress? When do we get control of what is done and some real "studies" about causes of disease? I trust less and less as the
days go by.
>> I think the nuclear melt-down in Japan is a turning point for the world. All the assurances were "automatic" -- and the hysteria might have been
over-the-top, but there is no EXPECTATION that anyone in authority anymore is telling the truth. The company will lie to us, and the government will
cover for them, and there will be no repercussions except to the public.
