» GMOs will unleash global killer ‘ecocide’ across the planet, warns prominent scientist Alex Jones. Mike AdamsNatural News March 12, 2014 A top scientist and “risk engineering” expert is now publicly warning that GMOs pose a dire, genuine threat to the continuation of life on Earth.
Nassim Taleb, author of The Black Swan and Fooled by Randomness, says that GMOs have the potential to cause “an irreversible termination of life at some scale, which could be the planet.” Image: Gmo Maize (Wiki Commons). His full explanation is presented in this public paper which describes how even a small risk per crop species can still result in global ecocide if pursued with abandon. As Taleb explains, “The risk of ruin is not sustainable, like a resource that gets depleted in the long term (even in the short term). Rational thinking automatically leads to skepticism of GMO safety. General Mills Gets a Taste of the Backlash. By Dr. Mercola Organic foods are required by U.S. federal law to be produced in ways that promote ecological sustainability, without common toxic and genetically engineered ingredients.
But organic products are increasingly being forced to compete with products that are labeled as "natural. " How Monsanto Monopolizes Genetically Modified Seeds. By Dr.
Mercola Over the past 15 years or so, a collection of five giant biotech corporations -- Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayer, Dow and DuPont -- have bought up more than 200 other companies, allowing them to dominate access to seeds.The takeover has been so dramatic that it is becoming difficult for farmers to find alternatives. As a result, in the U.S., 90 percent of soybeans are genetically-modified, and many conventional farmers have trouble obtaining non-genetically modified seeds.According to The Ecologist: "...
[O]ne solution to restricting their control would be through banning the practice of granting patents on seeds, plants and genes. At this point, a mere FIVE companies – biotechnology companies at that -- own the vast majority of all worldwide seeds. Five Biotech Giants Now Control the Global Seed Market The Impact of GM Seed Monopoly. The Farmer who Beat Monsanto. By Dr.
Mercola Monsanto has long been trying to establish control over the seeds of the plants that produce food for the world. They have already patented a number of genetically altered food crops, which can only be grown with proper license, and the seeds for which must be purchased anew each year. But genetically engineered crops cannot be contained.And rather than being found guilty of contaminating farmers' property, Monsanto has successfully sued hundreds of farmers for patent infringement. Monsanto Named the "Worst Company of 2011" By Dr.
Mercola Monsanto, the world leader in genetically modified (GM) crops and seeds, has been named the worst company of 2011 by Natural Society -- for "threatening both human health and the environment. "I couldn't agree more. I have long designated Monsanto the most dangerous corporation on the planet, and clearly this is a growing sentiment …According to Forbes: Dr. Don Huber Talks about Genetically-Engineered Foods. Organic vs Genetically Modified Foods « Morgellons Aid. G.M.O.
/G.E. Foods This post will examine the difference between organic and natural foods and the G.M.O. or G.E. foods now being engineered and flooded into our food supplies. G.M.O. stands for genetically modified organisms and G.E. stands for genetically engineered. These are interchangeable terms and indicate that a food, meat or plant food sources have been genetically engineered by modern science.
The Evidence of Traditionally Grown Disease-Fighting Broccoli As GMO. Monsanto Roundup Ready Defeated by Super Weeds. By Dr.
Mercola Investors Warned About Monsanto's Super Weeds As GM Freeze reported, one investment company is now advising its clients to sell Monsanto shares because of the company's problems with weed resistance, which are arguably set to snowball even further out of control in the very near future. Monsanto's competitors, biotech giants like Dow and Bayer CropScience, are chomping at the bit to take over where Monsanto has failed, and already have released GM seeds with tolerance to multiple herbicides designed to be used on their own or in rotation with Roundup Ready crops in a last-ditch attempt to delay resistance from developing. "Monsanto is taking the problem of the rapid development of glyphosate resistance very seriously, as it represents a threat to their main sources of income. … Monsanto has embarked on major changes in weed management in RR crops, which still includes the use of glyphosate on its own, but also in combination with other herbicides.
Genetically Engineered Foods versus Organic Foods. By Dr.
Mercola Over the past few years, an interesting pattern has emerged, where political supporters of genetically engineered (GE) foods are feasting on organics, while promoting unlabeled GE foods for everyone else.Most recently, Mother Jones1 discussed how Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney – whose ties to Monsanto go back to the late 1970's when GE crops were still in the R&D phase – reportedly makes sure his own meals are nothing but organic... According to Peter Alexander of MSN Today:2 "On Romney Air, or Hair Force One – as Reuters' Steve Holland like to call it – Mitt Romney has his own galley in 'forward cabin.' And, while I've never been invited up front, sources close to the campaign tell me the shelves are stocked with a wide variety of healthy fare. Everything's organic, I'm told, including the ingredients to Romney's favorite, peanut butter and honey sandwiches.
