Exclamation Warning - Graphic pics. More about Roundup and it's toxicity...

http://sustainablepulse.com/2012/09/...-death-cancer/



Quote:
In a study published in “Food and Chemical Toxicology”, researchers led by Professor Gilles-Eric Seralini from CRIIGEN have found that rats fed on a diet containing NK603 Roundup tolerant GM maize or given water containing Roundup, at levels permitted in drinking water and GM crops in the US, developed cancers faster and died earlier than rats fed on a standard diet. They suffered breast cancer and severe liver and kidney damage.
pretty much sums it up for ME!!

AND!!! There's:

Expert scientists warn that genetically modified wheat may cause Glycogen Storage Disease IV, resulting in an enlarged liver, cirrhosis of the liver, and failure to thrive. Children born with this disease usually die at about the age of 5.
Australia is on track to be the first country in the world to grow GM wheat commercially, and to test this in human feeding trials.
Today in Melbourne molecular biologist and risk assessment researcher Professor Jack Heinemann of the University of Canterbury, NZ, and Associate Professor Judy Carman, a biochemist at Flinders University, will release expert scientific opinions on the safety of CSIRO’s GM wheat. These opinions have been reviewed by Dr Michael Antoniou, reader in molecular genetics at King’s College, London.
Professor Heinemann’s expert opinion outlining how CSIRO’s GM wheat silencing technology could transfer to humans is believed to be a world-first, and has been reviewed by scientists in Australia, the UK and Austria.
Australia is on track to be the first country in the world to allow the commercial growing of GM wheat. It is not yet grown anywhere else, nor is there any market worldwide that wants GM wheat. Current GM food crops, like canola and corn, are experiencing fierce resistance across the globe, and there is growing anger in the USA, the birthplace of GM food technology.

It hurts just to look at those guys.
But are to really believe that this was just simply an unintended consequence something that no one could have possibly foreseen?

We live in a scary world indeed.

The thing to understand about this is that these plants cross pollinate. Even if Mansanto stopped making GMO plants today, it's too late. It's now in our eco system and will breed with their natural counterparts.

At one point in time, it may be impossible to obtain non-GMO corn or wheat. While that won't happen for generations to come, it is quite possible that in most places there will be GMO in the plant family history somewhere down the line.

While, not an option for everyone, I know I live in a relatively secluded area, farm-wise. Where the mountains south of us keep us protected from the industrial cities and farms.

I buy local whenever I can.

Perhaps someday we will have commercially available GMO testers. Hey, it's possible. They are even working on at-home DNA tests to check for disease that run in your family.

I guess I can be thankful that my daughter is allergic to wheat, corn, soy and all that garbage. We can do without just fine. We grow our own veggies - as organic - as possible. No Monsanto can be found near my garden!!

I went so far as to STOP the "moth" spraying ( It is a water-based formulation of bacteria and chemicals. The "active ingredient" is Bacillus thuringiensis Berliner variation kurstaki - Btk) by CROP DUSTER of our neighborhood by the dept of natural resources in 2011. What a crock! Moths. Going to spray HOMES, YARDS, SCHOOLS, KIDS WAITING FOR BUS IN MORNING, with btk. Actually, it is FORAY 76B and hardly "harmless." Claims it is genetically MANIPULATED not genetically modified!
Now? I hear the deptofdefense is going here and there to see how far this "harmless" bacteria (which is in the Foray product) has spread. poppycock. We have NO ISSUE with the moth and this was the first time in my life I witnessed the crop dusting of ANY residential subdivision with a pesticide. I didn't like it. Our street was spared due to the health issues of my daughter and neighbors who are on oxygen - for the spray can be troublesome for those with allergies or lung issues. I DID THE RESEARCH and alerted the schools, the day cares, churches and neighbors. Many people just didn't care. They felt it was a GOOD thing to have poison rain on them. To kill a bug.

I don't believe the story of an evil moth. That the spray was to slow the spread. I feel it was all dod testing. And the DNR would NOT divulge information about the once made in a monsanto lab btk spray and possible harms, at all. Such hard sell of the spray, too.

The army once conducted civilian testing of bacteria by breaking light bulbs filled with the bacteria in Manhattan subways back in the late 50s/60s. *There was a series of reports done by Bill Kurtis - very informative-- very hard to find. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciR6BWXjmrA


This is just a new way to do it and give a bs reason: moths. imo
