Because Everyone With A Brain Knows that GMO Food Is DEADLY

  1. Wesman Todd Shaw profile image97
    Wesman Todd Shawposted 6 years ago

    I'm continually disgusted with persons who attempt to "prove" through their own self righteous pity parties and censorship, or hand picked "facts" that GMO foods are "safe."

    Make no mistake, The Gates Foundation feeding Africans Monsanto products....is really not so much different from Nazis experimenting on Jews in the style of Josef Rudolf Mengele - it's just degrees of separation in regards to pain.

    Now more than ever, Knowledge Equates POWER, and the least educated are the persons who are fed the toxic waste as human lab rats.

    Here's a list of seed companies that are SAFE from ties to Monsanto, time and again and universally conceded to be the single most evil and anti humanist organization on planet Earth.

    Hi there Buddy!  Missed you. Let's not let the GMO foodies rile us.  Have compassion for those who have lost brain cells by ingesting rat poison.  After all, they probably will not be reproducing and more importantly, the Grim Reaper's not too damned far away. So, it's all cool, really.  There are the uneducated, who can see the light at some point if guided well....there are the intelligent who only need scientific facts and some common sense to know that 2+2=4.....and then, there are the blatantly ignorant that have their heads up their........  Don't forget the aiders and abetters with some sort of connection to Monsanto (or government hide n seek groups).  Where there's money, there's always greedy Liars. 
    You made an excellent choice in your replacement. She's terrific.  But, no one can take your place in the long run.....lol.  I'll be following.  Looking forward to a healthy exchange here!

            And don't forget the trickle down effect. More disease, more need for medication, higher health costs, more power to big pharma, more control over govt., more need for universal medical insurance, higher taxes, less money to buy food, more people buying cheap food, more disease...well you get the point.

              I think it is an area where the old rule applies: don't attribute to evil what can be explained by stupidity.

              I mean, why to people eat junk food and get sick?  The same basic explanations apply to companies, groups and countries.  They go for the immediate reward.

              There's no money in curing cancer, or preventing cancer - there's money to be made in big pharma treatments for cancer, and extending your cancer pain as long as possible.

                Actually, what the mainstream calls junk food is only the tip of the iceberg. Snack foods are a huge part of the problem but ALL prepackaged processed food is risky and that includes flour and cereals. If it's not Whole Grain and Organic, there are health risks in the form of toxins but also in the form of nutritional void. The more processing, the less nutritional value.

    I think it's sick how many North Americans choose to eat the GMO foods. They don't care about the consequences they only want fast crap that they have to put any work into before they eat it.
    What's everyone's big hurry? What do people have going on in their lives that is more important than putting fresh, healthy NON GMO food into our bodies and those of the ones we love?
    Somehow the distractions that don't really matter in our lives have been promoted as the stuff we need - whether it's stuff or distractions to occupy our time, we've been lead to believe that time making food and feeding our bodies and souls don't rate.

    I'm with you, I hope and prat that one day enough people will get there heads out of the sand to STOP supporting GMO foods.
    In my opinion, anyone who has green space where they live should be planting non GMO seeds and feeding themselves.

    It is unbelievably important that we teach the generation coming behind us how to grow the food they eat or all will be lost in the future - food and water control life ...

    great topic!

      Well it sounds like you're definitely free from the imposed false reality that we all must work work work, and then work some more in order to have a bigger house in the suburbs and a new SUV to impress out siblings, friends, and neighbours with.

      While everyone has been so busy either working or being entertained with mindless garbage on the television...the world was busy changing, and we were all being stabbed in the backs while we weren't looking.

      It's how Americans supported the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya.

            I think it explains why you think Bill Gates is evil. When someone does something you disagree with you don't check your facts or look into what they are doing in detail, you just assume they are malicious because they disagree with you and never look any further.

      Many are as good as dead considering the state of their health after years of eating toxic food. The subject of GM is only part of it. What about RoundUp ready food? And animal toxicity due to the food the animal eats? Think about the insidiousnes of the stuff. It takes years at a slow pace, but look at the poor boy who has to cross Monsanto's soybean field to sell his mothers tortillas. His feet are riddled with sores. And their ducks are dying because the ducks swim in the water that receives the runoff from the soy fields.

      Just because you don't die at once doesn't make the stuff any less deadly in the long run. Soy and corn are the major GM foods but for those who read labels, they know that these two products are almost always in the list on prepackaged, processed foods in some form: hydrogenated soy oil or corn oil, corn starch, modified corn starch, corn sugar, soy lecithin. I'd make a longer list but I don't keep foods like that in the house so I have no immediate reference.

        The shortening lifespan of Americans is pretty clearly caused mainly by eating too much fat and sugar.  If GMOs have any role, the effect has been swamped to the point of being scientifically indemonstrable. (For those who care about actual data).

        In which case we should be going after a lot of other mega-companies before Monsanto.

          psych - Monsanto shouldn't be singled out, I agree. They all do it. What amazes me is that they get away with what amounts to false advertising at best without full disclosure.

          I also agree that too much fat and sugar plays a huge roll in shortening lifespan and this goes directly to the point at hand. Toxins are contained in the fat. Before the 1900s people ate fat without problem. Our bodies require at least 40% of our calories from fat. But the fat was good. Now it's riddled with poison and is not pure in the sense that it is molecularly altered.

    Todd - This is heartbreaking to think of happening to anyone and I know it is happening.  That concerns me greatly and the good Lord knows I will never again knowingly by products from that evil company.  I wonder however, how much of the produce in the grocery right around the corner and down the street in America is this stuff and we just don't know about it. 
    If we look at the skyrocketing rates of developmental disabilities in children, I have to suspect it's all over the country.  I know there are many other additives, dyes, preservatives and so on that can contribute too but honestly, I think it's right here on our own shelves too.
    Further, how much damage is being done to the American environment that we don't even know of yet.  They are manipulating food on a genetic level.  I don't believe the scientific mantra that all things can be controlled.  It is inevitable that some of this stuff get away from the guys who are to keep it under control, assuming it hasn't already which I for one think is an assumption we really can't afford.

      poetvix - we do know about it. All of it unless it says certified organic, is sprayed. Produce with thin edible skin like strawberries, grapes, summer fruits, peaches, etc. are the most sprayed. Also, animals that are grain fed are eating grains that are sprayed. Since toxins are stored in the fat of animals (including humans) beware animals that are not organic and/or grass fed. And don't eat the fat.

    My daughter had major problems  due to diet coke addiction. Aspartame was pushed through FDA by political pressure. Rumsfeld was involved in that scenario. Groups of consumers have made protests. Some drs wrote a book about it. I have researched it myself and wrote an article about it. This is just my opinion. You can check it out with your doctor.

        All the artificial sweeteners on the market have been shown to cause cancer in lab rats. Stevia is a safe alternative because it is not chemical based but is a bit difficult to work with. There's nothing wrong with honey in moderation.
