Monsato has now come out with a new kids' book titled "Look Closer at Biotechnology".

It is a children's activity book with crosswords and word matches. It promotes GMO crops and explains how Monsato is working to better our planet and people.



“Hi Kids! Welcome to the Biotechnology Basics Activity Book. This is an activity book for young people like you about biotechnology — a really neat topic…. You will see that biotechnology is being used to figure out how to: 1) grow more food; 2) help the environment; and 3) grow more nutritious food that improves our health. As you work through the puzzles in this book, you will learn more about biotechnology and all of the wonderful ways it can help people live better lives in a healthier world. Have fun!”





Take a look at the Children's Activity Book for yourself.

The Council for Biotechnology Information, a nonprofit education group, has released the children's activity book to be used by health and science teachers in public schools. Monsato is listed on their website as a Member Company here. While there is some informative information, most of it can be seen promoting GMO crops as a way to provide healthier food to people in the near future.

Brainwashing? They never touch on the harmful effects proven to be caused by GMO crops.

brainwashing at it's finest. We should write and distribute a kids activity book with our take on gm food. See how well that goes over

Monsanto has always and will continue to push their agenda. Many companies target the young in order to cash in when they get older. In this case, Monsanto is attempting to have fewer people objecting to their methods in the future.

The only real answer here is for the parents to become aware and for them not to buy the books for their kids. If the books show up in school, the parents should protest it.

Problem? Not enough parents are aware of what Monsanto does so when the book makes an appearance in their World, they won't see it for the brain washing that it is. Children need to be educated but in order for that to happen the parents must be educated first.

Peace

I agree with the idea behind modified food. Unfortunately greed keeps the research in the wrong place.

The thread is titled "Monsanto Brainwashing Children With Kids' Activity Book" - not "Adverse Health Effects of GMO crops".

If you would like to read up on negative side effects caused by eating GMO crops, check out the following threads to educate yourself:

This is pretty scary to think about but that is how Monsanto will gain public favor eventually try to wait until people accept engineered, radiated and multipurpose food as it becomes more common place. Forced on us.

They are going for the next generation.

They already have corn with pesticides built in so it has to be regulated by both the EPA and the FDA.

This reminds me of the commercial....that goes something like this.
"Corn syrup or sugar? People say high fructose corn syrup is bad for you but we have studies that show sugar is sugar." These commercials act like fruit sugar is the same as corn syrup.

What's funny is when you complain the opposing side says that it is a matter of choice and you should be able to eat that way if you want to. You see the trick? It is not just children getting fooled.

You guys whine constantly that everything is bad for us. Why are we living longer? Were crops just more evil back then? Were there more chemtrails? Every tard on ATS knows modern medicine is the reason our lives are cut short..... Oh wait, again, we live longer. It's hard being a govt. shill sheep, but someone has to do it. We live longer, you whine more. Half of you welfare queens wouldn't even have food if it weren't for genetically engineered crops. EMBRACE YOUR MASTERS.

I like that idea.

I wish we could give everyone a taste of what a peach, a pear, plums, tomatoes and apples - used to taste like before they were mass produced in labs. Nobody would choose to keep the tasteless cardboard that passes for food nowadays.

Exactly this. Even if modern advances are purely devised to further some unknown agenda, as so many like to believe, they are clearly having a positive effect on us in the meantime.

I'm sorry if my thread confused anyone, but I thought that creating a thread with "brainwashing" in the title implies that whatever the post about is, in-itself, bad.

So when I said that the book never covers anything about GMO crops and their bad effects, basically I was reiterating the obvious reason for the post being titled "brainwashing" to begin with.

Actually, this is a really good comment Domo. If this the establishment trying to kill me then I say "Try harder! More!"

Because seriously people, our life expectancy is only getting longer.

I agree. It's unfortunate that it has been taken in such a terrible direction though, as greed usually seems to do!

Wouldn't it be wonderful though if they could genetically modify foods to have healing properties beyond what normal organic foods have?

I believe we will one day have this technology and hopefully use it for the betterment of our civilization as a whole instead of the money grabbing business it has become.

Monsanto has been engaging in PR campaigns for young people since they opened up the "Adventures in Inner Space Ride Brought To You By Monsanto" back in the 1960s at Disneyland in California.

Better living (and dying) through chemistry, baby.

You mean like the GMO foods being proposed by the coloring book? Oh no, "they" are trying to brainwash our kids by making them believe that good ideas are good... Er, wait, what?

I think that GMO crops have even more to do with our meat than people think. Animals grazed on and near GMO crops even taste different. My family raises cattle, and we usually feed out and slaughter a calf every year or so. Cooking our meat even produces a different, cleaner smell than store bought meat.

As far as fruit, I remember eating apples, strawberries, and other fruits from my yard growing up, and they definitely have changed.

Monsanto in itself is not an ethical company and that is where the problem lies for me. I believe when people become the main concern and not money then good things will happen. Genetically modifying food for the betterment of society is a great idea! As long as the proper studies are being carried out to protect people as well. I'm all for it. Honestly if the coloring book inspires kids to have better ideas about the production of foods I'm all for it...I haven't seen the book but I'm assuming it's not encouraging children to take on Monsantos business practices. I guess sometimes bad things have to happen though for society to evolve. Bigger risks must be taken to achieve giant leaps forward, but one must learn how to live with that power without destroying the human race.
