Is GMO Worse Than Nuclear Radiation?

By now, you have probably heard about all the dangers of GMO (genetically modified organisms). The cover-up from the government and the corporations is massive. They summarily fire any scientist who blows the whistle on the looming dangers and catastrophe. Our government has rammed GMO foods down the throats of its people by denying them knowledge as to the source of the food. While in Europe, GMO is scarce, because the people are permitted to know if the food is GMO. Information on GMO is not restricted to their people. They are educated on the subject, and they simply reject the Frankenfood.

Now we have some shocking information from WikiLeaks. Many question the source, but the evidence is indisputable that members of the U.S. government have conspired to punish Europe for its stand on GMO. This is not an issue of defense or terrorism. It’s a matter of our government using its power to ram the corporate interests of a single private corporation (Monsanto) down Europe’s throat. Here’s what happened.

Several years ago, France decided to ban GMO corn produced by Monsanto. Then Ambassador Craig Stapleton was concerned that an anti-biotech policy could spread across Europe. Please read the Wiki released cable sent by him:

“Europe is moving backward not forward on this issue, with France playing a leading role, along with Austria, Italy and even the [European] Commission.... Moving to retaliation will make clear that the current path has real costs to EU interests and could help strengthen European pro‐biotech voice.... Country team Paris recommends that we calibrate a target retaliation list that causes some pain across the EU, since this is a collective responsibility, but that also focuses in part on the worst culprits. The list should be measured, rather than vicious, and must be sustainable over the long term, since we should not expect an early victory,” he wrote.

Remember, Europeans are concerned about being forced to eat laboratory created food monstrosities. They should be.

Scientists have found that artificial insertion of foreign genes causes alterations in the native genes. In other words, say I could insert a truly “benevolent” gene in your cells. That alteration in your cell nucleus may well set off catastrophic alterations in the expression of the rest of your genetic code. Cancer-activating genes could come alive. It could silence abnormal-cell-suicide genes. Such abnormal activation is now seen in corn, where an otherwise relatively quiet gene has been activated in GMO corn to produce a highly potent allergen.

Jeffrey Smith is author of several outstanding books including Seeds of Deception. He conducted this interview with Amy Goodman, which he posted online:

“There’s been more evidence showing that this genetically modified corn damages mice and rats, etc., can cause reductions of fertility, smaller litter sizes, smaller offspring, immune responses, etc. And these have gone largely ignored by both the European Food Safety Authority and the United States FDA.

“It gets far worse than we thought. Conventional wisdom led us to think our vulnerability would be to the pesticide the GMP plant would produce. But, it wasn’t that.”

Smith continues: “Dr. Arpad Pusztai was actually working on a $3 million grant from the U.K. government to figure out how to test for the safety of GMOs. And what he discovered quite accidentally is that genetically modified organisms are inherently unsafe. Within 10 days, his supposedly harmless GMO potatoes caused massive damage to rats – smaller brains, livers and testicles, partial atrophy of the liver, damaged immune system, etc. And he discovered that it was the process, the generic process of genetic engineering, that was likely the cause of the problem. He went public with his concerns and was a hero....

“He (Pusztai) was testing with rats that were eating the genetically modified potato, engineered to produce an insecticidal protein (the Bt toxin also found in GMO corn). But he also tested other groups of rats that were eating natural potatoes that were spiked with that same protein, and then a third group that was just eating natural potatoes without the insecticide. Only the group that ate the genetically engineered potato got these problems, not the group that was eating the potatoes along with the insecticide. So it clearly wasn’t the insecticide; it was somehow the process of genetic engineering.”

These independent scientists were labeled as “Fear Mongers” for daring to stand up to corporate rigged blatantly false propaganda. Many have lost jobs and status. The same can be said for medical people rebelling against Pharma who lose their licenses. Others have been physically attacked.

Take the example of Dr. Andres Carrasco, a lead embryologist at the University of Buenos Aires Medical School and the Argentinean national research council. His study, first released in 2009 and published in the United States, shows that glyphosate-based herbicides like Monsanto’s popular Roundup formula caused deformations in chicken embryos. These deformities resembled the kind of increased human birth defects being reported in areas like La Leonesa, Argentina, where big agribusinesses depend on glyphosate to treat genetically engineered crops.

A delegation of politicians and community activists gathered to hear him speak about his findings. But the talk never happened. A mob of 100 people attacked his group before they could reach the site of the speech. One delegate was hit in the spine and suffered paralysis. Others received punishing body blows to the face and head. Amnesty International reports that witnesses said the angry crowd had ties to local officials and agribusiness bosses. Police made little effort to stop the violence.

GMO is not like nuclear radiation, which decays with time. It’s not like conventional pollution, which gradually decays as well, and will likely be gone not long after we have killed off ourselves with the poisons. GMO is DNA inserted into living organisms. It multiplies! Exponentially! We cannot control it! GMO corn products are in most everything containing high fructose corn syrup. That means your family is ingesting potential GMO toxins simply by drinking soft drinks and most any processed food.

What you can do: Visit the Seeds of Deception web site. Read one or more of Mr. Smith’s books: (1) Seeds of Deception: Exposing Industry and Government Lies About the Safety of the Genetically Engineered Foods You’re Eating; (2) Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods; and (3) The World According to Monsanto. You know the power of Pharma to corrupt the U.S. government. Now you see the same with the soulless corporate biotech industry, not just endangering us, but the entire planet.

Please boycott anything touched by Monsanto, including agricultural products. Educate your neighbors. Do not eat any conventional corn or soy, as they are most likely Monsanto GMO. Tell your markets and restaurants why you will not buy or order any conventional corn or soy products, or anything else you suspect might be Monsanto GMO. Request them to get organic corn and soy. Please use the power of your purse, since we cannot expect protection from our “alleged” government, which is in clear cahoots with this horror. Please lobby your elected officials to mandate labeling of GMO foods in the marketplace. It is unconscionable that we, in America, are deliberately denied honest labeling of GMO foods. Why? Monsanto knows that it would lose tremendous sales if you had the choice.

Monsanto does not yet own foreign governments as it apparently owns ours (and perhaps Argentina’s). The rest of the world needs the help of the American people, as Monsanto uses hegemony and the American government to foist its ungodly products on an ignorant and unsuspecting world, and wreaks havoc on life on earth. And it does all of this in the name of profit – nothing else.
