As the March Against Monsanto is close at hand, we are grateful to Colorado local KGNU has once again been gracious in bringing the community real news about what all the noise is about. Today KGNU is celebrating 35 years of public education. Come take a listen as Ellice Campbell spends time with on Metro a locally produced news and public affairs talk show.
Information begins with Micro RNA's that impact all forms of life through active genetic modification of our human cells is discussed. There is a danger in consuming the poisons used to deter weed growth and natural insects in over 80% of farms producing corn and soybeans. These poisons are used with genetically modified plants that have had their genetics spliced with bacteria to survive the poisons used. The food then carries parts of this poison in it as the crops leave the farm and head for factory. These crops are processed and end up in most of the food available in grocery stores today. While it has been proven that animals eating these crops have developed cancer, gone through phantom conception and delivered empty birthsacks and experienced all kinds of other diseases. Additionally the The American Academy of Environmental Medicine advises their doctors to prescribe non-GMO diets as they have found GMO's to cause reproductive, immune system, aging problems and so much more. Education is the most important factor. The impact of disease has impacted the human race as well. This is because the primary company that has developed these crops, Monsanto - aware of these scientific facts has done everything to remove themselves from liability for the effects of their creation while they continue to pump out these crops. 80% of corn is GMO corn. High fructose corn syrup is in all the food you eat. These crops are continued to be produced with the knowledge that the food created from it can kill.
This year a bill passed through congress called, Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013 which is often called the "Monsanto Protection Act" who's purpose (in layman's terms) is to indemnify Monsanto Corporation and other GMO producers from persecution when this becomes an epidemic. We believe this is a crime against humanity. Many of us remember when poison stickers were something you put on chemicals in the house to warn children of their danger. And now, we believe it is time to require food manufacturing companies to be required to label the food products they make when poisons #GMO's are used in the production of our food. It's easy to agree that eating rotten, moldy or contaminated foods is not advised because people can get sick and die. It's time for us to stand together and make the same statement made to chemical companies, label your products so consumers know what they are purchasing. It's illogical that the healthy and safe food to eat be labeled and not the dangerous items.
