If you’re not outraged by this, you should be, considering the adverse health implications that GMOs cause — from digestive disorders, cancer, organ failure, sterility to premature death in rats fed GMOs — if this is happening in rats, what do you think GMOs are doing to us?
Monsanto has fought against our right to know what’s the in the food we eat by putting up close to $50 million to defeat several GMO labeling bills that would have required a label on foods that contain GMOs.
Of particular concern with the bill was Section 735, popularly known as the “Monsanto Protection Act,” which stated that federal courts cannot intervene and stop biotech companies from planting and selling GMO foods to the public, even if testing proves them to be potentially hazardous to consumers. Luckily, the provision expired on September 30, 2013.
All of us, those of us who eat, and I’ll presume we all do, the majority of all corn, soybeans, cotton, canola and sugar beets (sugar) grown in the United States are genetically ‘mutated’ organisms unless it is USDA Certified Organic. Fifty percent of papaya grown in Hawaii is GM. Small amounts of yellow “crook neck” and zucchini squash are also GM.
These chemical companies who now have a strangle-hold on almost the entire US food supply, try to pass themselves off as “agricultural companies” (but they’re anything but), buying up seed companies, placing a monopoly on seed supplies and destroying seed heritage that has been passed down through generations that span over ten thousand years. This is what fascism looks like, folks; buying up every last seed company so they can control the food supply and not have a competitive market.
We must realize that almost all packaged food that lines the grocery store shelves are derived from corn, soy and other genetically mutated food sources. Literally millions of food items are being sold with GMOs in them, and none of them have ever been tested for their safety on humans!
Is the rise in diseases since the 1990’s, when GMOs were covertly introduced into the entire food supply in the US just a coincidence, or is it more likely that the diet of genetically modified foods the cause of autoimmune diseases, food allergies and celiac disease? And, are the alarming numbers of cancer which have increased since the 1990’s just another coincidence as well? Well, we really don’t know, and because there is no label on the foods that we buy and eat stating that they’re genetically modified, there is absolutely no accountability; no finger pointing back at the very corporations that created GMOs.
The chemical company Monsanto, if you haven’t already heard, is a company rich in coercion, corruption, fraud and deception and have been voted by the millions who oppose them, to be the most destructive company on the planet.
Last year in May 25th 2013, a grassroots movement swept across the world from Australia to Africa, from Bangkok to Belize, from New Zealand to Zürich and the US. The rise in opposition to GMOs has sparked off yet another global March Against Monsanto protest. Last year’s event was so huge, that a reported number of over 250 events in 34 countries took place at this global event — and they’re about to do it again.
It’s time to take back our food. It’s time to March Against Monsanto yet again!
