The weather is warm and it’s a season of protests. People around the world are protesting. Many are protesting austerity plans imposed on them by EU governments. The protests that took center stage over the last week were protests against Monsanto.
Protests against Monsanto took place in 52 countries and 436 cities, yet you didn’t hear much about this on the news. There was a deliberate media blackout on anyone opposing Monsanto. These people were protesting GMO seeds.
More and more crops are being grown around the world with GMO seeds. There are growing concerns over health and also that GMO’s are harming the environment. For instance, many think the bees are dying because they are ingesting GMO laden seeds, or plants.
There’s a rising concern over GMO labeling. The anti-GMO companies and supporters cannot compete with the Monsanto’s of the world and their lobbyists and these giants are spending millions and millions of dollars to keep from having to label GMO foods and seeds.
Monsanto claims that GMO’s are safe and actually help the food supply in the world. However, studies over the past 10 years have shown that GMO’s cause a myriad of birth defects, lower IQ’s, lower birth rates, and allergies for people who never had them before who now have them.
There’s a concentration of toxins in GMO plants. Many more times concentrated than just spraying plants with herbicides or insecticides, which can mostly be washed off. There’s problems eating GMO crops. Animals are getting sick and dying when they start eating GMO feeds. Bees have been effected dramatically by the presence of GMO’s in their environment.
Modified foods can effect the DNA of the bacteria in peoples’ stomachs and intestines. It can literally create a pesticide factory in your intestines, one that keeps working as long as you live. Doctors have commented on the great increase in gastro intestinal problems people are having over the last 10 years.
There is little or no testing of GMO’s and if there is, the results are not released by Monsanto and others. There’s a revolving door of people moving from Monsanto into the government agencies that regulate Monsanto and then go back to work at Monsanto when the government job is over.
There’s been documented increases in autism, obesity, diabetes, cancers of all kinds, heart diseases, allergies and more. In fact, doctors report that the number of people with 3 or more chronic diseases has doubled in the last 15 years. Could it be that they are eating GMO-based foods? There’s growing proof that GMO’s are unsafe and no proof from Monsanto that they are. If GMO’s were so good for you then why shouldn’t they all be labeled as such and people would readily buy them. However, that’s not the case. Monsanto wants to keep all testing results hidden from the public. Until the truth comes out people will just keep protesting as they get sicker, unless they take precautions to avoid GMO’s.
QUESTION: What should readers take away from this message today?
ANSWER: That if GMO’s were so good for you then why not advertise it.
QUESTION: Why is this information timely?
ANSWER: This information is timely because people around the world are waking up to the fact that they are being poisoned by an agriculture giant.
QUESTION: How can readers best apply this information to their lives right now?
ANSWER: First, you could learn about GMO’s and non-GMO foods and make your own conclusions about how you want to eat and how you want to remain healthy.
COMMENTARY: GMO’s are tolerated because Monsanto convinced leaders that it would produce so much food that it would solve hunger once and for all. That took a huge burden off the politicians, while making windfall profits for everyone in the Monsanto money making chain. This may go down as the most harmful impact on humankind, as well as all other life on this planet.
