GMOs: What We Need to Do

by Paul Fassa
See more articles by Paul Fassa

(The Best Years in Life) Okay, so California anti-GMO activists, outgunned financially by Monsanto and large corporate agribusiness groups and chemical companies, couldn’t get Proposition 37 passed to mandate labeling foods containing GMOs (genetically modified organisms).

Those who fought hard on the ground in California, and those who contributed financially with at total of $6 million, Dr. Joseph Mercola pitched in 1.1 million personally, had their hopes dashed by a narrow margin on the Prop 37 vote by the aggregate $50 million Monsanto and other large agribusiness and chemical corporations invested in deceitful disinformation advertising.

The powers that be do it because they can, and the mainstream media carries their muddy water without the slightest intent to remove the slime.

There’s a lot of suppressed information about how badly GMOs will affect your health, the food supply, and environment. You need to know more about that. Start with the extended preview of “Genetic Roulette” on YouTube.

Then consider obtaining the whole documentary from Jeffrey Smith’s site, Institute for Responsible Technology. Other informative sites include: Occupy Monsanto, Institute for Responsible Technology, OCA (Organic Consumers’ Association), Natural News, Mercola, Farm Wars, and a few others.

There is no maybe in GMOs’ immediate impact on your personal health. If you have convinced yourself the GMO threat won’t directly affect you and labeling is just a nice idea, you’re in for a shocking surprise.

A Whistle Blower Reveals Faulty Science of GMOs

In November, 2009, Organic Consumer Association (OCA) interviewed Agro-ecologist Don Lotter, Ph.D, about his paper published in the 2009 edition of the International Journal of Sociology of Agriculture and Food.

Despite knowing how this paper might affect his career as a university researcher and professor, Lotter revealed more than the flawed scientific background of Bio-Technology arrogance. He also revealed a smoking gun that would ruin our health.

Lotter stated: "The promoter gene used in genetically engineered crops, the cauliflower mosaic virus, is a powerful promoter of inter-species gene exchange. Scientists thought it would be denatured in our digestive system, but its not. It has been shown to promote the transfer of transgenes from GM foods to the bacteria within our digestive system, which are responsible for 80% of our immune system function " (Emphasis added)

In other words, the transfer genes will mess up our intestinal flora balance and thus our immune systems. Lotter is not alone with this assertion. Natural Law Wessex has a list of various actual scientific papers spanning a decade that confirm Lotter`s assertion, and more! The cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV 35S) used for plant genetic engineering is cited as a source of viral recombination as well as a gene silencer and DNA disruptor.

By the way, the Wessex site has been disappeared, unfortunately. Perhaps Monsanto’s security inlet operation Xe, formerly Blackwater, seems to be doing its job well. Rent the movie “Micheal Clayton” to get an idea of how these groups operate.

Canadian independent research has also concurred the CaMV 35s concerns. The potential for increasing serious viral diseases and cancer was mentioned in the Wessex Law Party reports, which were never picked up as press releases by the mainstream media.

So You’ll Just Avoid GMOs, eh?.

If you view the documentary Percy Schmeiser: David vs. Monsanto, or the YouTube video Farmer to Farmer, you’ll find the co-existence theory only works in Whole Foods’ “natural” food chain.

The problems of contamination from GMO crop fields has become more apparent. According to Barbara Peterson of Farm Wars, GMO cross contamination may be occurring with organic foods. Barbara points out in her article "USDA National Organics Program - Testing for GMOs NOT Required" that this is the stated position of the USDA on GMOs. USDA organic certification is based on how the produce is grown, and there is no guarantee of being free from GMOs. In other words, as long as they are grown without genetic or engineering or chemical pesticides and herbicides, they are approved as organic.

But there is no inspection for GMO contamination by wind or pollination carried from GMO farms in the area. She also points out that even if the USDA did inspect, there is no standard of how much contamination would be tolerated. Zero tolerance is unlikely. So who would decide how much is safe? This blows out the co-existence plan as unworkable even if it were implemented.

But what is to be expected with the USDA and FDA occupied and owned by Monsanto and other biotech corporations? Former Monsanto execs are in key USDA and FDA positions. And they didn't sneak through the corporate/government revolving door. They were appointed from the White House and approved by Congress.

Thankfully, there is a non-government group that inspects processed foods from food processors who pay them for the right to put a “GMO free” label on the package. You can look for those, but realize not all food processors are doing this.

More Information the Mainstream Media Ignores

Let’s not forget distinguished Scottish biochemist Arpad Pusztai’s GMO animal testing that demonstrated serious health issues, lowered fertility with more health problems within the small amount of offspring that could be produced.

Now there’s French study of rats fed GMOs for two years turning up with gruesome tumors if they even survived those two years. These reports are only newsworthy slightly in the mainstream media as minor controversies. The media ensures the biotech industry’s pooh-poohs of valid research is featured.

Meanwhile, plants and farm animals are dying from the contamination created by Monsanto’s Roundup pesticide, which is sprayed with abundance on the GMO plants protected against it, especially corn and soy. Agricultural and biochemistry toxicology expert, Purdue professor emeritus Don Huber, wrote a letter a to the USDA head, Tom Vilsack, listing the concerns sent to Huber from farmers in the area.

Huber also discovered a new vicious pathogen that never existed before until the herbicide Roundup Ready and other similar glyphosate toxins were introduced and heavily used. Tom Vilsack was the governor of Iowa before heading up the USDA. He was declared governor of the year by the biotech industry for his strong GMO support. And now he’s the head of the USDA – don’t bother petitioning them.

More needs to be done to stop the GMO juggernaut that threatens our health now as well as endangering the survival of future generations. That more means more education of consumers and farmers.

Yes, farmers need to be a major part of this resistance to Monsanto and the biotech industry. The few nations that have had more success resisting Monsanto’s GMO invasion than America’s corrupt government and ignorant masses has come from strong opposition within the agricultural sectors, including farmers.

Petitioning a corrupt government and labeling GMOs, especially with so many ignorant and indifferent to GMO’s threats, is not enough to even slow down the GMO juggernaut. Disgruntled farmers need to inform other farmers why to resisting Monsanto is in their best interests, and they need the legal support to withstand “legal” attacks from the most evil corporation in America.

About the author:

Paul Fassa started looking into natural health to overcome his unhealthy lifestyle. Then he developed more interest as he researched his articles for Natural News and Align Life.

He is amazed at the ignorance of natural medicine and how beneficial foods and herbs are constantly ignored or vilified in order to promote toxic foods and meds by Big Pharma, the FDA, USDA, and the AMA, what he likes to call the "Medical Mafia".

His blog is http://healthmaven.blogspot.com/ - "Healthmaven: Escape from the Medical Mafia Matrix." His Natural News articles can be reviewed here: http://www.naturalnews.com/Author712.html
