The recent French study that related Monsanto’s GMO corn to cancer, liver damage, organ failure, kidney damage and premature death – is now being taken very seriously by health organizations and even governments all over the world and they are now warning their people and farmers to make healthier and better food choices.
Although United States of America is the richest nation on earth, it is now regarded as one of the least healthy societies in the world. People in US are becoming more aware of the health risks associated with processed andGMO foods and are more interested than ever before in organic sustainable living.
As usual, California is once again leading the country in proposing regulations that protect the public from health risks and putting focus on public safety. The desire to label GMO foods is growing stronger, not just in California, but across the entire country and many organizations and communities from East Coast to West Coast of US are seeking support for California Proposition 37 in order to protect pregnant women, infants and children from the health hazards associated to GMOs.
Public organizations are compiling lists with the assistance of research institutes in US to monitor and disclose favorite food brands that may contain ingredients made with Monsanto’s GMO corn or have been genetically modified or engineered.
Since 85% of corn and soy planted in the US are genetically modified, therefore most processed foods are made of ingredients that contain corn or soy based compounds with high levels of GMO. In fact, soy and corn aren’t the only foods that have been genetically modified; there is also rice, canola oil, cotton, tomatoes, potatoes, dairy products, meat products and peas that have been genetically modified.
Last week the editor of Natural News Mike Adams released the name of many well known breakfast cereals that are made from Monsanto’s GMO corn as below:
- Barbara’s Bakery Puffins Peanut Butter
- General Mills Cocoa Puffs
- Kellogg’s Corn Pops
- Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes
- Kashi Heart to Heart
- Kellogg’s Corn Flakes
- General Mills Kix
- General Mills Corn Chex
- Quaker Honey Graham Oh’s
- General Mills Honey Nut Chex
Nature’s evolutionary permutations has brought us here to this point in time and space in a remarkable journey of precision. We cannot let Monsanto destroy mankind in a flash through genetically modified DNA – and cause irreparable damage to humans – for profit.
Humans, who can’t even eradicate common cold, can’t stop unnecessary wars, famine, injustice, inequality, 500 million children dying of malnutrition worldwide, 13 million child sex slaves, etc. etc. shouldn’t be trusted togenetically modify foods (causing pathogens to radically mutate uncontrollably) without enough research and enough time to understand the consequences and the implications and possible long term side-effects.
To illustrate my point, humans (and those particularly in power such as large wealthy corporations, i.e. Monsanto) can’t even agree to respect people’s choice and fully disclose through labeling food.
In fact the “Big 6″ pesticide firms (Monsanto, DuPont, Bayer, Dow, BASF and Syngenta) have contributed $19M against CA prop No 37 and they REFUSE to want to label GMOs and respect people’s choice when there is absolutely no LOGICAL and MORAL reason for not labeling GMO foods.
Bottom line is that there are no more myths about GMOs and GMO debate is over. The arguments I have heard from all those Monsanto supporters and those who have stocks in GMO and bio companies, and those proponents of GMO without any safety assessment prior to consumption by the general public is like a broken record player that completely ignores and disrespects people’s right to CHOOSE.
