Dangerous Gene Manipulations!

Through the years humans have created numerious stories of humans turning on humans. Zombies are eating our brains…don’t let it bite me! Experiements have made him into a super villian, out to destroy mankind. Yes, we are afriad of sharks, lions and snakes, but what truely, deeply frightens us is us! We are deeply afraid that that mankind will turn on itself. Human vs mutant Human! Are we forshadowing our own demise – let’s find out!

What is GMO & GE?

GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organism and GE stands for Genetically Engineered. There are slight differences to the scientific world but to us ordinary folk, they really amount to the same thing; a gene from one organism that contains a desirable trait is transplanted into the DNA of another organism. The genetical modification process is much more dramatic and rapid than traditional breeding practices that we have been using for thousands of  years. Where traditionally different varieties of a single species are crossbred to form hybrids; now completely different species are mixed to design something different, and hopefully better than the original.1 But at what cost? The common GMO crops are; corn, soybeans, canola, flax, cotton, potatoes, squash, and tomatoes. Tomatoes were the first crop in 1995 to be genetically modified and commerically sold in the US, followed by potatoes in 19962.

Are GMO really better?

According to Thierry Vrain, Ph.D., a former genetic engineer of 35 years “The insertion of genes in the genome through genetic engineering interrupts the coding sequence of the DNA, creating truncated, rogue proteins, which can cause unintended effects. It’s an invasive technology.” “When I hear we need genetic engineering to feed the world, I cringe. It turns out that there is no increase in yield, no decrease use of pesticides, and the process is of highly questioned safety.”3

According to Monsanto, (one the the biggest GMO producers), they state that GMOs are going to solve the hunger of the world. But in my opinion, I think that they are satisfying their hunger for financial greed, leaving the Human race by the way-side.

So are these wonder GMO crops really better or are they just crops that allow farmers to spray higher quantities of herbicides and pesticides onto our food and therefore slowly poisoning the food supply! Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, chairman of the Subcommittee on Domestic Policy of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee said herbicide-resistant weeds in fields growing Roundup Ready crops “Is totally cancelling out the alleged benefits of genetically engineered, herbicide-resistant crops.”4 But GMO crops now not only have super-weeds to contend with but now have super-bugs that are resistant to the GMO Bt crops. Monsanto has revealed that a common insect pest has developed resistance to its flagship genetically modified (GM) cotton product in India.5 Michael Gray, an agricultural entomologist at the University of Illinois in Urbana, said he’s studying whether western corn rootworms collected in Henry and Whiteside counties are resistant to an insect-killing protein in the Monsanto Bt corn6.

Monsanto’s latest GMO corn is supposedly drought tolerant (MON87460), but according to the USDA finding it’s “water usage is not anticipated to be significantly different in hybrid corn varieties possessing MON87460….”7

So what does this all mean? The GMO crops that can produce their own bacteria to fend off pests are now ineffective as the bugs are becoming resistant, the herbicide resistant GMO plants that can withstand copious amounts of these herbicides are still plagued by super-weeds that have become resistant to the herbicides and the drought tolerant new varieties need the same amount of water as conventional crops. So instead of helping the farmer the only thing these large corporations are doing is charging huge fees for the GMO seeds licenses and requiring more and more herbecides and pesticides that they sell to be sprayed onto the plants that are now in our food supply either as feed for our meat supply or on the very vegtables that are served at dinner.

Are you still wondering why there is more cancer and auto-immune diseases in the world today?

What can we do to stop the BioTech agricultural Corporations?

We can buy more organic products and make a stand!  How much longer will we wait – join the revolt:

At this point in history, we have the unique opportunity to reclaim our food supply from biotech juggernauts like Monsanto. We have the ability to remove the mutated GMO garbage from our dinner tables, and demand that activism turn into anti-Monsanto legislation. This is the goal of the Monsanto Video Revolution.

The March Against Monsanto that occurred in May of this year was a major success, but the fight does not end with an activist march. In an effort to generate even more awareness across the globe, the largest players in the natural health field are coming together to push this Monsanto Video Revolt into hyper space. Together, they are joining forces and asking YOU to help even further on July 24th, 2013, in the Monsanto Video Revolt.

  • Step 1 – Create a video of any length detailing why you stand against Monsanto and GMOs at large. The video can be as long as you want – it’s your choice. 
  • Step 2 – Upload your video to major video websites like YouTube, Vimeo, LiveLeak, DailyMotion, NaturalNews.TV (where it will not be censored), etc.). 
  • Step 3 – Spread the word about Monsanto and be the final stake in their vampire heart. Share your video any way possible, through Facebook, Twitter, or any other platform you can think of.

So join me and lets all make a change, buy organic and stop buying into the Big Biotech Agricultural Corporations propaganda that chemical pesticides and herbicides are good for us and tell them where to shove their poisons!
