GMOs stand for Genetically Modified Organisms. This means altering an organism in a way that does not occur through mating or some other natural means. For example, Monsanto developed their patented insecticide-producing “Bt corn” this way: the insecticide is actually produced inside the plant, so it is impossible to wash it off. This is accomplished by inserting genes from the bacteria Bacillus Thuringiensis into the corn.
There are a multitude of peer reviewed scientific studies published by respected universities and medical bodies linking genetically modified organisms to illnesses such as obesity, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, severe food allergies, and developmental disorders. Why have these studies been ignored for the ones with more “industry friendly” results? Here’s an example of how the government to a large degree, was bought by GMO companies. This was Monsanto’s employees and government revolving door:
Monsanto lied about the toxic effects of Roundup and is now facing over 8,000 lawsuits. Here’s a law that would make it much easier to catch companies who lie.
The Monsanto Papers: A law firm has just released a TON of Monsanto’s secret emails and documents showing how they suppressed scientific data and paid an army of online trolls to lie for them
Since the Monsanto Papers have been released to the public, I wanted to share these respected scientists’ experiences with being gagged or attacked for their studies on pesticides and GMO’s
As the Monsanto Papers release has shown, conflicts of interest within government regulatory agencies also need to be examined
There should be a registry of all GMO clinical trials, just like the pharmaceutical industry is required to produce.
The scientific journal Critical Reviews in Toxicology has issued a rare “Expression of Concern” and requested corrections to articles it published that failed to fully disclose Monsanto’s role in reviews of glyphosate’s cancer risks.
This scientist wants the three GMO potatoes he developed to be pulled from the market, citing health concerns and suppressed scientific data.
