Canada is under attack!!

seedsMore specifically our farmers. We need, as people dependent on our farmers for our food, to get behind our farmers and support them for supporting us. So who is the aggressor? None other than the Biotech industry. Companies such as Monsanto, DuPont and Sagenta just to name a few. What these companies do is engineer genetically modified organisms or GMO’s as they are more commonly known as. These large global corporations band together and spend millions of dollars to lobby Government to pass laws that promote the use of their exclusive products. And so doing they regulate the farmer, forcing them to use only their engineered seeds by making it illegal for farmers to keep their own organic seed.

GMO/Biotech corporations feed us lies in saying their food is safe. Yet they have not done the necessary test independently to back up their claims.  Numerous scientific reports are starting to surface suggesting the contrary is the truth.

Genetically modified (GM) crops are promoted on the basis of a range of far-reaching claims from the GM crop industry and its supporters. They say that GM crops:

  • Are an extension of natural breeding and do not pose different risks from naturally bred crops
  • Are safe to eat and can be more nutritious than naturally bred crops
  • Are strictly regulated for safety
  • Increase crop yields
  • Reduce pesticide use
  • Benefit farmers and make their lives easier
  • Bring economic benefits
  • Benefit the environment
  • Can help solve problems caused by climate change
  • Reduce energy use
  • Will help feed the world.

However, a large and growing body of scientific and other authoritative evidence shows that these claims are not true. On the contrary, evidence presented in this report indicates that GM crops:

  • Are laboratory-made, using technology that is totally different from natural breeding methods, and pose different risks from non-GM crops
  • Can be toxic, allergenic or less nutritious than their natural counterparts
  • Are not adequately regulated to ensure safety
  • Do not increase yield potential
  • Do not reduce pesticide use but increase it
  • Create serious problems for farmers, including herbicide-tolerant “superweeds”, compromised soil quality, and increased disease susceptibility in crops
  • Have mixed economic effects
  • Harm soil quality, disrupt ecosystems, and reduce biodiversity
  • Do not offer effective solutions to climate change
  • Are as energy-hungry as any other chemically-farmed crops
  • Cannot solve the problem of world hunger but distract from its real causes – poverty, lack of access to food and, increasingly, lack of access to land to grow it on.

People are waking up the BS these companies promote as truths. More and more countries are banning the use of GMO seeds in their agri-industries. Countries like New Zealand, Germany, Ireland, Austria, Hungary, Greece, Bulgaria, Luxembourg, France, Madrid, Switzerland, India and Thailand.

There are no proven reasons to support these crops, in fact the science is saying the exact opposite. These companies need to have Government legislation enacted because without they could not sell their products. I don’t know about you but if your product is so crappy that you need to have Government pass laws so you can be successful you should be allowed to die off just like any other bad idea that is launched in a free society. Isn’t that the whole idea of free enterprise and a capitalist society? To allow the right and just to survive and asinine to die off. Government position should be neutral and only enact laws and regulation that further enhance that mandate.

GMO Continued….

The more I learn and understand about the corruption in the corporations and our so-called government agencies that are supposed to protect us the more appalled I become. The Government feels it must police me, a single individual, and yet a huge corporation can police itself! It can independently deem its products safe without outside testing and bring this untested crap to market and feed it to us and our children. Who do they think they are, were do they get off? What about the breach of trust of our elected officials to do our due diligence for us with the funds we provide them via our taxes.

 

We, as consumers of the goods have the power to make or break these companies and they know it, and know it well. That is why they are fighting tooth and nail to keep labelling out.  California must bring in the law that requires the mandatory disclosure of whether or not any GMO is in a given food item. I believe that if this was to become a law that the GMO industry would go broke in a very short time frame. I further believe that these chemical companies should be held libel for any damage to “natural” products that their altered seed may have contaminated. If those suits don’t clean them out then the medical claims against them for feeding these unsafe and untested products to the general public should bury the hatchet! I, for one, think that if you bring something to market you should do it under full liability. Do you think that these corporations would be so quick to put unsafe product out to the masses if they were held accountable. But then again how can we expect them to be accountable when the so called governing body, our government, is so blatantly unaccountable and corrupt.

 

People we need to fix this! And fast. We need to vote for people who stand for something. That are not just in government for the payoffs, corporate payoffs at that. There are getting to be more and more of this callubor of candidates coming to the surface. They are seeing the fight in the people to fix this and they are starting to step up.  Take Kurt Haskell, the Democratic candidate for the U.S. House in Michigan’s Seventh District for example, he is wanting to fight the good fight if given the chance. I say vote him in, what’s the worst he can do nothing? Isn’t that what the majority of those back stabbing b**tards are doing anyways? Find as many of these fighters as you can and put them in office and see what they do, can’t be any worse than what we already have, I tell you.

I got a link to this short video put out  by Gary Null Productions and boy does it open your eyes up to the corruption in the FDA. FDA should stand for Federal Diabolical Agency, that would be a closer description for what they do. Nice job guys, you rock! NOT!!!! I will include the linkto the video in here too. After you watch that short fifteen minute video you’ll have a whole new level of despise for these big chemical companies.  As I keep saying people, we the people are the power to fix this. We just need to stand up together and peacefully make a stand against these corporate beasts that think control us.  Look around search online find something in your neighbourhood that you can get behind and show up!!  We can do it!! together we stand-devided we fall!!

So What’s The Deal With GMO’s Anyway?

 

So what is the deal with GMO’d products anyway? Why do they even exist? What is the purpose? What are the benefits? What is the down side? So these are some pretty sound questions don’t you think?  I think so.

 

So what is the deal with GMO’d products anyway? Well from what I can understand the grow quicker, to a more uniform size and shape.  They have also apparently been infused with pesticides so the farmer doesn’t have to spray as much. Lets have a quick look at these few statements. They grow quicker, so if a typical pepper requires 4 weeks to fully mature and a GMO’d pepper matures in say 3 weeks and 4 days is the net gain of 3 days really worth the it? I read a story in a nutritional magazine  it said to get the equivalent nutrition out of today’s  produce one would have 8 to 10 times the amount of the given produce. So if we take an orange for example you would have to eat 8 oranges to get the same nutritional value of just one orange of 30 years ago. What has changed? The Sun? The water? The answer is in the modifications to the soil, the tree and the fruit itself. They spray pesticides and chemical nutrients into the soil which are unnatural to the fruit in the first place then they take and modify the fruit to have some of it own pesticides built into it. That is scary stuff. At least with the topical pesticides you can rinse them off, how do you wash off the ones that are engineered right into the fruit? You cant! You have to consume them with the fruit. The human body is not designed to digest or process chemicals so they just build up in the body and cause all kinds of nifty diseases.

They are injecting growth hormones into our meat products so they can get the animal to slaughter faster. As we eat our meat products we are consuming growth hormones. As we eat our potatoes we are consuming chemicals. Every time we consume these product we are potentially running the risk of making our selves very ill. As these by products of the huge agri-business empires hurry to increase profits at the cost of the consumer. But I guess the cold hearted straight business truth is the population is growing not shrinking. We are going to pay in the end even more you see because as people get sick from consuming these products they are needing medical services and that in a lot of countries is covered by insurance schemes so the rates for coverage keep going up. And if you are lucky enough to live in a country with socialized medical the burden on the tax base is greater an greater every year. Seem to me the only winner in this model is the big agri-business gurus like Monsanto, BASF, Bayer and Dow just to name a few. Our governments are bought off by these giants so they can not or will not do our bidding. It is up to us the real people, the real consumers, the real power of this world to stand up and tell the governments what we want.

 

So the deal with GMO’s is that they are bad for the people and bad for the planet. They exist solely for the purpose of  and the benefit of the huge chemical and agri-business corporations. The purpose I can see is to allow for a quicker fast product to market, quality and safety is not a concern. Because there are always more consumers, and if you should get sick from consuming these products big pharma will benefit in the end.  I so far have not seen any net benefit for the end user or consumer of these products so to me other than selfish greed at the expense of human life and health there is no benefit. The downside is blatantly obvious, less nutritional value, higher chemical and pesticide consumption more and more soil deprivation and contamination and sterilization.

 

What got me going on this you might be wondering? I was reading a story today about how young boys are now becoming pubescent as early as 9 years old now.  They are linking this to ingestion of growth hormones in the foods we eat. I for one have had enough of GMO’d crap in my diet. I eat as much as I can locally organic grown produce and meats. If I cant get enough NON GMO’d nutrition I take a suppliment daily.  You should to. But don’t expect your government to tell you that.
