Ok, there was a thread about this earlier this year, however this is confirmation direct from the company!
Also, the prvious thread has
had its youtube videos removed from Youtube (wierd eh?
) here it is if you wanna check it out:
They will NOT label the corn as GE/GMO and you should know that this is the first GM food that Monsanto has created that goes directly from the farm
to the consumer, instad of being processed and used as ingredients in other products! Lucky us! We get direct BT toxin straight from the fields!
Monsanto GE Sweet Corn to Hit Walmart Shelves
Like it or not, Monsanto’s genetically modified sweet corn will soon be arriving on grocery store shelves of the world’s largest retailer,
Walmart Stores, Inc., and will not be labeled as such. Despite an onslaught of consumer pressure, the company confirmed late last week with the
Chicago Tribune that it has no objection to selling the new crop of Monsanto’s genetically modified (GE) sweet corn.
Other retailers, including the grocery chains Safeway and Kroger, have not responded on the issue, however Whole Foods, Trader Joes and General Mills
have all vowed to not carry or use the GE sweet corn. As the country’s largest grocery retailer, Walmart sells $129 billion worth of food a year,
giving it unmatched power in shaping the food supply chain.
One side, its good to see soome retailers NOT going with this death corn, however a large portion of the population buys most of their food from
Walmart now.. sad
The GE sweet corn is the first consumer product developed by Monsanto that will go straight from the farm to the consumer’s plate, rather than
first being processed into animal feed, sugars, oils, fibers and other ingredients found in a wide variety of conventional food. It is engineered to
be resistant to Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, the active ingredient of which is glyphosate. The product is also designed to produce a Bt toxin that
will kill insects that feed on the plant. Monsanto’s new sweet corn is being harvested in the Midwest, Northwest, Southeast and Texas.
“After closely looking at both sides of the debate and collaborating with a number of respected food safety experts, we see no scientifically
validated safety reasons to implement restrictions on this product,” Walmart officials told the Tribune.
So there ya go folks! DO NOT BUY the 'Sweet Corn' you will see in Walmart stores soon! Well, unless you enjoy the taste and possible health issues
associated with BT toxin and GM foods. Did you know that more evidence has come out that 3rd and 4th generation of hamsters eating GM foods have
Russian biologists have found that hamsters fed a GMO soybean diet to become infertile after three generations. Reported recently in the
Huffington Post, this dramatically concerning discovery raises a lot more questions about the malignant and rapidly expanding genetically modified
organisms already known to cause a variety of health problems like allergies, cancer, and auto-immune diseases just to name a few
As a side not, the original article was from the
HOWEVER, the article has disappeared from their website (Weird, no?!) Doing due diligence i did a search on
the Tribune website,
- Obivoulsy from a 'Cache' because when you click the link, it is '404'ed'.. of course. It would not suprise me that
they (they being Monsanto) had the article removed.. why would they want everyone to know that you are going to be eating GM foods direct from the
I have tried to contact the Chicago Tribune to ask what happened to the article and if I could please have a copy of it, I'm not getting my hopes up,
but if they for some miraculous reason send it to me, I will post it. I also wanted to know if this was only the US (sorry American friends
) or if
this is also going to be in Walmart stores in Canada and elsewhere! If i get an answer i will add it to the thread.
My warrning - So, please please folks.. Tell your friends! Tell your Family! Sit infront of Walmart and tell your fellow citizen! Unless you
potentially want BT toxin in YOUR blood (ATS thread
), in YOUR system, DO NOT BUY/EAT
IT! If you go to a BBQ, rememebr to ask where they got the corn from!
These GM foods are severly undertested, have evidence that they cause many different health issues and are ruining the lives of farmers around the
world! Monsanto is EVIL!!
