Grow your own food! I beg of you. As many as you can. Because if this system crashes- and you can no longer healthily eat store food (which we shouldn't anyway because being dependent on grocery industry isn't helping us or our environment, or the economies of the small guys), you'd have sometimg to fall back on. And imagine the fun of a small garden!!! Get organic seeds, and stock up.

"In most cases, the substances expected to become components of food as a result of genetic modification of a plant will be the same as or substantially similar to substances commonly found in food" -FDA

Wow, that's a relief.

Doctor- 'Mam, your baby was delivered just fine. He has body parts that are substantially similar to body parts commonly found on babies not genetically modified.'

Woman- ...'umm...thanks doctor. Could you define substantial please?'

Also James Maryanski, former Biotechnology Coordinator at the FDA, has admitted that GMO regulation was based on politics rather than science

Dr. Louis J. Pribyl, of the FDA's microbiology group, has stated that there is a profound difference between the types of unexpected effects from traditional breeding and genetic engineering

Monsanto has falsified studies concerning the carcinogenicity of dioxin, found in 2-4-D. The chemical 2-4-D, or 'Agent Orange', has caused devastating health issues to Vietnam veterans who were exposed to it in the Vietnam War. And even today, children are being born in Vietnam with severe birth defects from exposure to the chemical. And guess what...

Agent Orange Corn is very close to being introduced to the market, if it hasn't already. This is corn that is genetically altered to withstand the treatment of 2-4-D.

"2,4-D tolerant GMO crops haven't been safety tested for human consumption," added Baden-Mayer. "The FDA doesn't require that. They only conduct voluntary consultations with the manufacturers of GMOs on human health impacts. There's no independent review. So, we really have no idea what will happen when people start eating 2,4-D tolerant crops, and we probably never will. They'll enter the food supply unlabeled, primarily as animal feed and ingredients in junk foods."

From natural news regarding the sellout of the New Chapter brand.  Lia Rae is 100% right, and i'm so pissed at the former owner of New Chapter.  What an idiot

"Section 735 of HR 933 reportedly states that the federal court cannot stop or intervene when GMO crops are planted or sold by biotech companies. Critics of the Monsanto Protection Act have voiced concerns about potential public health hazards the shielding of big agriculture companies."

 

 

Monsanto never ceases to amaze me...

Snuck into an unrelated bill anonymously. Look for the Jon Stewart segment on it. I think from this past Monday or Tuesday.

"If GE crops crossbreed unchecked, how will farmers who want to continue their time-tested practices purchase the heirloom seeds they need to get food on the table?  GE food crops are experimental and their long-term effects on the natural world unknown.  We who farm the land now and in the future should not be forced to grow these experimental crops or their cross-bred cousins: We should have a choice.  

The citizens of Washington should not be fooled. We have a right to know what’s going into our food and how it is grown. Foods are already labeled in a variety of ways to inform us, and protect our health. By labeling genetically engineered foods, we can also protect our future well-being." -Seth Williams, fourth-generation farmer of 1,100 acres near Edwall, Wash.

Or save the seeds from their crops for next year which is how most of the farmers in the world have always done it.  Making them buy seed puts them in debt.  They are fighting this battle in Mexico, trying to keep the hundreds of varieties of corn they grew for millenia.  Even though they don't grow GMO crops in Mexico, because of NAFTA cheaper subsidized American GMO corn is sold there. People buy dried corn in sacks, kernals fall out of holes along roadsides and they grow and contaminate the heirloom crops.

"Monsanto would have you believe that verifying and labeling for non-GMO ingredients is a costly and burdensome affair, but the fact that Trader Joe’s, known for its discount prices, can provide GMO-free private label products, which reportedly accounts for over two-thirds of the company’s estimated annual $9 billion in sales, takes the wind out of the “burdensome” argument. That leaves the cost of adding another line of ink to a label. Trader Joe’s doesn’t yet label its private label products as GMO-free, but the company cites a lack of clear labeling guidelines from U.S. governmental agencies as the reason it doesn’t label, not cost."

Executives from Monsanto Co., DuPont, and Dow Chemical, among the world's largest developers of biotech crops and the chemicals used to help produce them, told Reuters this week they are putting together a campaign aimed at turning the tide on what they acknowledge is a growing public sentiment against genetically modified organisms (GMOs) used as ingredients in the nation's food supply.
