Documentary On Genetically Modified Foods (They're Deadly & We Eat Em)

143 posts in this topic

Your remarks are, as always, completely invalid because GM products to not increase the amount of food available to starving children in underdeveloped countries or anywhere else.

Thanks for that. Anyways, Bill Gates has pledged and donated more than 120 million to GM foods and their research. So yes, his donation alone will increase the production of GM foods.

Even if you don't believe that GM foods offer increased output at a lower cost, (Which is just nonsense, by the way) you will appreciate that his donations to third world countries will continue to make GM the most viable solution to saving the lives of MILLIONS in the next decade or so.

Honestly, how can you people sacrifice everything to further your agenda, even the lives of children.... makes me sick.

Bill Gates: a man with some common sense

:

“I think the right way to think about GMOs is the same way we think about drugs,” Gates told the AP. “Whenever someone creates a new drug, you have to have very smart people looking at lots of trial-based data to make sure the benefits far outweigh any of the dangers.”

HEY!! Its not drugs!!! its the worlds food supply. Genetically modified crops are invasive to neighboring organic gardens. The pollen itself is a pollen that would absolutely never occur in nature, the genes are forced together with a gun using viruses and bacteria to invade the organisms natural barrier against foreign genes. When the farmers seed gets contaminated by GM pollen, they are forced to buy seed over again to stay organic. This type of breeding is NOTHING like what humans have been doing for ages. YES people should not be hungry, so feed the hungry. take it to the starving. Its extravagantly irresponsible to let this go unchecked, to force all consumers in america to eat food that isn't even real; to treat us like straight up lab rats for practically the biggest scientific experiment in human history.

The theory behind GMOs is sound. Computers and cell phones are completely unnatural and yet I bet dollars to doughnuts you own and greatly utilize both of those "unnatural" creations. You wouldn't be able to interact with us if you didn't.

Are useless and potentially harmful GMO variants being used in terrible ways to monopolize the agricultural industry? The answer to that is an obvious yes.

Can the theory behind GMOs be utilized to engineer foods that have enormous benefits for humankind. The answer to that is also yes.

Will it happen? In the near future, probably not. But GMOs themselves are not the evil here. It's the corporations who care less for the properties of the plant, than they do of the ability to patent it's genome and monopolize it for profit.

CAN people please stop comparing life giving food to things that we don't even need and have the choice not to buy. Yeah cell phones are obviously not natural. Yes i use technology, But you cannot compare food to cellphones and modern gadgets because they are not vital to life in the way food is. The food that has gotten us to where we are now is threatened because of genetic engineering. I am surprised you would call this technology sound, modern science as we know it does not fully understand DNA. In no way is it sound to tinker with something so vital like DNA and possibly contaminate the worlds food supply, and make millions sick, and poor. If this was really about doing good, being "sound", and feeding the starving then these gardens and animals would only be found where they are needed, there would be areas where GM crops can be grown and cannot because the genes take over organic crops and become monsanto's patent. The new seed that becomes GM such as a tomato, is not just a tomato because it has animal genes. The genes are not connected more precisely like they want you to think, the gene combination is brought together by viruses, bacteria and other agents because of how invasive they are to the cell. People have the right to know that there food has these things in it and really should know all about it because of how potentially damaging these foods can be to the body.

"Can the theory behind GMOs be utilized to engineer foods that have enormous benefits for humankind. The answer to that is also yes."

You may be talking about adding more nutrition to the food using genetic engineering? This doesn't help settle anything for me, the way the genetic info is combined is what makes it dangerous. Adding more nutrition just sort of covers things up, I just don't buy it.

Secular scientists believe that the vast information in DNA somehow formed from matter out of nowhere to simple chemicals on its own, from primordial chemical soup to complicated cell and then to such diversity and complexity, including unique human beings. Just given enough time of course!

We humans don't even fully understand DNA though , no scientist can create a cell in a lab with the right chemicals assuming they know what they are! nor have we seen any life spawn from chemical slime and than change into wholly different species over time. To them cousins of apes are somehow smarter than "natural selection" and nature itself and should begin taking over, it doesn't make sense.

You tell him Hannah.

The nine-year-old read a prewritten statement criticizing the fast-food chain’s nutritional deficiencies and marketing tactics. She asked, “Mr. Thompson, don’t you want kids to be healthy so they can live a long and happy life?”

CEO Don Thompson responded by denying the allegations, saying, “First off, we don’t sell junk food, Hannah,” he said. “My kids also eat McDonald’s. When they were about your size, to my son who is with us today...”

80%-20% Alkaline forming vs Acid forming Diet

`Organic~
I don't consume:
*Dairy
*Whole grains
*Refined sugars
*Table salt
*Vegetable oils
*Processed/Fast foods
*Genetically Modified Foods (GMOs)
As well as the pesticides/herbicides that come with them

My philosophy: Less externally, more internally

Even taking long hot showers in chemically treated tap water is too harsh for acne prone skin

(And that's without a face wash)

“USDA Organic” is simply a marketing term those who take government ethics at face value. The goal has always been to increase agricultural sales, not promote organic farming.

As you can see, GMO is not really the issue. Big food and big chemical companies are the issue.

Avoid it all by growing what you can and buying from small local farms. They don't need to be certified organic (which is expensive and BS anyway as you can see from the above article). Look for those that follow sustainable practices.


Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

Sorry, I meant to ask if this applied to everything that was certified organic. I found the info i was looking for, apparently it only has to be 95% organic to be USDA certified organic, anything labeled 100% organic must be 100%, and The United States government does not allow companies to label products “100% / Certified Organic” if they contain GMO's.

The USDA's certification is B.S. So, let me just repeat what I said earlier.

"An October 10 press release with Mexico City byline announces the banning of genetically-engineered corn in Mexico. According to the group that issued the press release, La Coperacha, a federal judge has ordered Mexico’s SAGARPA (Secretaría de Agricultura, Ganadería, Desarrollo Rural, Pesca, y Alimentación), which is Mexico’s Secretary of Agriculture, and SEMARNAT (Secretaría de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales), which is equivalent of the EPA, to immediately “suspend all activities involving the planting of transgenic corn in the country and end the granting of permission for experimental and pilot commercial plantings”.

"On Nov. 5, citizens in Washington State will vote on whether to require mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods, also known as genetically modified organisms or GMOs. Win or lose, The Washington Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act is driving the national push on GMO labeling in states around the country as well as at the federal level -- just as the narrowly defeated Prop 37 in California did last year."

When did they start growing GM corn there? They didn't when 'the world according to monsant' was filmed.

Yeah, there's been quite a bit of good news on the GM front.
