Monsanto is Using GMO Foods to Destroy Our Health. PCB, Agent Orange - dioxin.

This company has single-handedly created some of the most destructive products known to man, including polychlorinated biphenyls, known as PCBs, and dioxin (Agent Orange).

They are also the world leader in genetically modified (GM) seeds -- and if we don't take action soon, the entire planet could soon become contaminated with these toxic seeds, leading to the complete destruction of the natural food supply.

The United States is one country that has fully embraced GM foods.

GM corn, soybeans, canola, and sugar beets have made their way into approximately 80 percent of current U.S. processed grocery store items, now that up to 90 percent of several U.S.grown crops are grown with genetically engineered seed.

The problem with calling genetically engineered organisms safe is that there are no valid risk assessments being done on them.

There is no research, really, being done into the health or environmental effects of a genetically engineered organism.

Certainly no work that is published in the open peer-reviewed literature, or that isn't proprietary.

Corporations promoting these things claim that they have done research, but you can't get any information on it because it's all claimed to be proprietary.

GM seeds are banned in Hungary, as they are in several other European countries, such as Germany and Ireland.

These countries have chosen NOT to allow their land to be used as a testing ground in a massive uncontrollable experiment, which is essentially what the introduction of GM crops is.

GM foods are, from my perception, one of the most significant threats that we have against the very sustainability of the human race.

Why?

In a nutshell, these toxins are being linked to a growing repertoire of assaults against human health and the environment – and they are already migrating into fetal blood, which means future generations are now at risk.

Some GM crops, such as GM sugar beets and certain varieties of GM corn and soy, are engineered to withstand otherwise lethal doses of Monsanto's herbicide Roundup.

Other GM crops, such as Bt corn, are designed to produce their own pesticide internally.

Earlier this year, Cry1Ab, a specific type of Bt toxin from GM crops, has for the first time been detected in human and fetal blood samples.
It appears the toxin is quite prevalent, as upon testing 69 pregnant and non-pregnant women who were eating a typical Canadian diet (which included foods such as GM soy, corn and potatoes), researchers found Bt toxin in:

•93 percent of blood samples of pregnant women
•80 percent of fetal blood samples
•69 percent of non-pregnant women blood samples

There's already plenty of evidence that the Bt-toxin produced in GM corn and cotton plants is toxic to humans and mammals and triggers immune system responses.

...The mice had an increase in cytokines, which are associated with "allergic and inflammatory responses."

As you may know, chronic inflammation is at the root of many increasingly common diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease.

Food allergies are also skyrocketing, as is infertility, which could also be a potential side effect of GM foods, based on results from animal studies.

Monsanto insists that GM foods are no different from conventionally grown varieties, but the research does NOT support this claim.

it may surprise you to learn that a significant portion of U.S. milk is actually genetically engineered, again thanks to Monsanto.

This milk, and the ice cream, cheese, and myriad of other dairy products made from it, contains genetically engineered bovine growth hormone, or rBGH.

Monsanto's Environmental Damage Continues

First came Agent Orange and PCBs, and now we have glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto's nonselective broad-spectrum herbicide Roundup.

Massive acreage of soybeans, cotton, and corn grown in the United States contain the GM Roundup Ready gene -- and all of these crops receive numerous applications of Roundup each and every year.

researchers have linked glyphosate to Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS), a serious plant disease

Monsanto Forces Farmers to Buy New Seeds Every Year

One of Monsanto's biggest assaults to your food supply is what's known as terminator technology—which they hope to deploy soon.

These are seeds that have been genetically modified to "self-destruct." In other words, the seeds (and the forthcoming crops) are sterile, which means farmers must buy them again each year.
