Genetically Modified Cereal

gmo flakes 263x190 KELLOGGS CEREALS    Kellogg’s Foods are Full of GMO Sugar Beets: Join the Boycott!!!!

How can genetically modified food be the same as what nature creates???

I don’t know, can you tell me?

All I can tell you is that corn flakes is a stupid breakfast. Worthless. Low quality.

When I was a kid I could eat a whole box and would be hungry an hour later and I didn’t eat much when I was a kid!

If this is all your kid will eat then look for a non-GMO alternative.

Or don’t. Nobody thinks GMO is bad for you anyway.

Tell the FDA: GMOs Aren’t ‘Natural’!

I just recently made a post about Trans fats & MSG and in it I mentioned that the FDA is of no help to the consumer because they play advocate to big business rather than protecting the consumer.

Tell the FDA: GMOs Aren’t ‘Natural’!

Would you be shocked to learn that the corn in the “all natural” tortilla chips you just bought had been genetically engineered to produce a toxin that ruptures the intestines of insects? Causing them to die quickly after ingesting the corn? Or that the corn in the “100% natural” cereal flakes you just served your kids for breakfast had been saturated with far more glyphosate than any normal plant would be able to tolerate? Because the corn was engineered to resist Monsanto’s RoundUp herbicide?

The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) says “natural” means “nothing artificial or synthetic … has been included in, or has been added to, a food that would not normally be expected to be in the food.” So who would guess that food marketed as “natural” contains the engineered genes of insecticide-producing and/or herbicide-resistant bacteria?

So far the…

New Study Links GMO Food To Leukemia

I reblogged this post because it is just another study showing us that GMO food is highly suspect of being quite dangerous. Why take a chance??? Dont eat GMO.
Has anyone seen even one study that shows GMO is good for you?
Uh……nope.

A new study, yet to receive any media attention, reveals the “leukemogenic” properties of the Bt toxin biopesticides engineered into the vast majority of GMO food crops already within the US food supply.

Last September, the causal link between cancer and genetically modified food was confirmed in a French study, the first independent long-term animal feeding study of its kind. The disturbing details can be found here: New Study Finds GM Corn and Roundup Causes Cancer In Rats

Now, a new study published in the Journal of Hematology & Thromboembolic Diseases indicates that the biopesticides engineered into GM crops known as Bacillus Thuringensis (Bt) or Cry-toxins, may also contribute to blood abnormalities from anemia to hematological malignancies (blood cancers) such as leukemia.[i]

A group of scientists from the Department of Genetics and Morphology, Institute of Biological Sciences, University of Brasilia, Brasilia/DF, Brazil set out to test the purported human and environmental biosafety…

Hidden Viral Gene Found In GMO’s

What would the effects of a virus in your food be ? A virus that was not there before, and that was put there by humans. Well we don’t know. Maybe it will have no effect. But maybe it will have a tremendous effect. But the reason why will never know (until it’s too late) is because the viral gene was never tested appropriately for its effects on human health.

Regulators Discover a Hidden Viral Gene in Commercial GMO Crops

Cauliflower Mosaic Virus

Scientists were doing research on GMO foods looking for possible allergens and in so doing came across viral genes in different GMO foods. They zoned in on this and found it was a repeating trend in all GMO foods that they looked at.

It became a whole new research project with data showing that this discovery is of utmost concern.

How should a regulatory agency announce they have discovered something potentially very important about the safety of products they have been approving for over twenty years?

In the course of analysis to identify potential allergens in GMO crops, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has belatedly discovered that the most common genetic regulatory sequence in commercial GMOs also encodes a significant fragment of a viral gene (Podevin and du Jardin 2012). This finding has serious ramifications for crop biotechnology and its regulation, but possibly even greater ones for consumers and farmers. This is because there are clear indications that this viral gene (called Gene VI) might not be safe for human consumption. It also may disturb the normal functioning of crops, including their natural pest resistance.

Monsanto’s GMO Is Hard To Push In Europe & Japan

Are people just making a big deal over the whole GMO thing? Why would anybody introduce something that is unhealthy into our food supply right?? Ok , so we know damn well that there are tons of things out there that are not good for us and they are readily made for our consumption.  We are getting to know what these things are and we are changing our ways. But with GMO food it may not seem clear to people. A tomato is a tomato right? Well take a read of this from Testosterone Pit and ask yourself  why would Europe and Japan literally deny the importation of American crops to avoid any GMO that may be accidentally brought into the country.

The “March Against Monsanto” in 52 countries, an unapproved strain of its genetically modified wheat growing on its own in Oregon, cancelled wheat export orders…. A rough week for Monsanto.

But now it threw in the towel in Europe – where its genetically modified seeds have faced stiff resistance at every twist and turn. Even its deep corporate pockets and mastery of lobbying have failed: “It’s counterproductive to fight against windmills,” its spokesman told theTageszeitung.

The propitious week started last Saturday with the “March Against Monsanto,” when people in over 400 cities in 52 countries protested against the company, its influence over governments, and its GMO seeds. Much of it was focused on the mundane issue of labeling. Protesters wanted GMO ingredients in food to show up on the label, just like fat or protein. A simple solution to the controversy: let consumers decide.

But a red line for the industry. It’s worried that consumers will read the label – and choose an alternative. So Monsanto continued to assure us through its minions that labeling would be too costly, that it would kill the cupcake shop down the street, that we don’t need to know anyway because GMO foods are safe for human consumption, etc. etc.

These assurances bring up echoes from the past. Monsanto’s previous flagship products included the once harmless DDT, now banned worldwide; a family of industrial chemicals called PCBs that are now considered highly toxic; Agent Orange, the defoliant liberally used during the Vietnam War and promoted as harmless to people, with grave results for the Vietnamese and US soldiers who came in contact with it. And there was saccharine, the sweetener that ended up being a carcinogen. More recently, Monsanto reinvented itself and decided to save mankind not with a DDT successor, but with genetically modified seeds, whether people wanted them or not.

The hubbub of the “March Against Monsanto” had barely died down when the USDA confirmed that genetically modified wheat was mysteriously growing on a farm in Oregon. Something that we’d been assured could never happen. Numerous impenetrable precautions would prevent that. Monsanto had developed that strain years ago, but field trials ended in 2004, and the thing had never been approved for sale or consumption. The reaction was immediate.

Japan would “refrain from buying western white and feed wheat effective today,” a Japanese farm ministry official announced on Thursday, adding that the ministry is pressing the USDA for details of its investigation. US wheat imports would be on hold until at least a test kit is available to identify GMO wheat, he said. South Korea, which bought about half of its wheat imports from the US last year, announced that it would suspend imports of US wheat. The EU’s consumer protection office announced that any shipments that tested positive for GMO could not be sold in the EU. Other countries were making similar announcements. And everyone is badgering Washington for more information.

Keeping Your Eye On The Head Of The Snake Will Get You Coiled In Its Tail

So as most people who are following the story know, Monsanto and other big food companies paid big, big money to have Proposition 37 shot down and snuffed out of existence despite the actual popularity for the GMO labeling law. As I wrote in another post that you can read here, they won this time in California but sooner or later they will lose in one of the other 49 states.

Well I guess they realized this too and the mighty Monsanto company has found the answer to their problem……….

An amendment inserted into the 2013 Farm Bill passed by the House of Representatives’ Agriculture Committee Wednesday would revoke the ability of individual states’ lawmakers to pass GMO-labeling laws, food advocates warn.

monsantoThe amendment, introduced by Rep. Steve King, an Iowa Republican, is the newest salvo in an ongoing battle between food advocates and companies like Monsanto that create and sell genetically modified and genetically engineered seeds, which grow into GMO crops and find their way into an estimated 70 percent of processed foods in American grocery stores.

If you live in Iowa and you disagree with this fast tracking law you better call up Rep. Steve King and chew his ear off.

I Will Be There! 5/25/13 March Against Monsanto and GMO Food

I will be in New Brunswick N.J. for this . I hope it’s a good turnout!

In this world we can get caught up in a lot of bullshit and negativity and sometimes it’s healthy to stay away from these things rather than get bogged down.It is not worth the trouble trying to “save the world” and too much can cause you stress and distract you from your life. For instance , negative people, just stay away from them, don’t try to change them.

But as far as I can see we all need one good thing to fight for. It gives us a better sense of ourselves and even in the face of defeat it can still feel good knowing that you didn’t just lay down like a tired dog.

As I have stated in the past, I take a stand on the GMO issue. It is about the food that I put in my body and I just think that I should be allowed to choose if I put GMO’s into my body.

It is a complex issue and if you don’t know anything about it then do your research. I am not going to explain the issue here because I will not do it any true justice. What I know is from doing my own research that is ongoing and has now encompassed the past 10 years of my life.

Go to the 30 min mark of the broadcast where the host Gary Null starts his interview and he delivers a scathing monologue about Monsanto.

This blog is not a political blog but like I said this is the issue that I choose to stand and fight on. This is part of who I am so it should be reflected on here.
