"According to the National Agricultural Statistics Board annual report, dated June 30, 2010, by 2009/2010, 93% of the US planted area of soybeans, 93% of cotton, 86% of corn and 95% of sugar beets were genetically modified varieties. And the derivatives of these GM crops — corn syrup, high-fructose syrup, cotton seed oil, flour, lecithin, and more — are found in the majority of processed foods sold in the US. Additionally, genetically engineered micro-organisms are also used as sources of enzymes in the manufacturing of processed foods. And virtually all animal feed is genetically modified." Article Link
"This year, a Russian biologist determined third generation hamsters fed genetically modified soy were unable to produce offspring. The study was conducted by Alexey V. Surov, at the Institute of Ecology and Evolution of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the National Association for Gene Security. Prior to Dr. Surov’s study, Irina Ermakova, also with the Russian National Academy of Sciences, reported in 2005 that more than half the babies from mother rats fed GM soy died within three weeks.I bet a majority of Americans have no idea how dangerous these GMO's are! These companies like Monsanto are much like BP that covers up the dangers its foods pose to humans and their reproductive capacities.
Jeffery Smith, author of Seeds of Deception, and founder of the Institute for Responsible Technology, notes that scientists who discover adverse findings from GMOs are regularly attacked, ridiculed, denied funding, and even fired.
According to Smith, animals fed GM crops developed potentially precancerous cell growth, smaller brains, livers and testicles, damaged immune systems, bigger livers, partial atrophy of the liver, lesions in the livers, stomachs, and kidneys, inflammation of the kidneys, problems with their blood cells, higher blood sugar levels, and unexplained increases in the death rate."
Here's an interesting and highly educational video on GMO's I'd recommend everyone watching:
The evil companies promoting GMO is so severe that they even tried to have GMO foods placed into "organic" certified foods. Scary indeed. www.InfoWars.com Alex Jones has repeatedly warned GMO foods are part of the eugenicists' plan to gradually kill off a large part of humanity.
