The biotech industry, led by Monsanto, will soon descend on the state of Washington to try their best to defeat I-522, a citizens’ ballot initiative to require mandatory labeling of foods that contain genetically engineered (GE) ingredients. Voters should prepare themselves for an onslaught of discredited talking points, nonsensical red herrings, and outright lies designed to convince voters that they shouldn’t have the right to know what’s in the food they eat.
Topping the biotech industry’s propaganda playlist will no doubt be this old familiar tune: that requiring retailers to verify non-GMO ingredients in order to label them will be burdensome and costly, and the additional cost will be passed on to consumers who are already struggling to feed their families. How does the affidavit system work? Is the system reliable? How to avoid GM foods. Just say no to those GMOs!
A guide to avoiding genetically modified (GM) foods Why avoid GM foods? Hardly any research into the safety of GM foods has been published in the normal peer reviewed scientific literature in the last 15 years and these foods have had NO long term safety testing. GM foods contain randomly inserted genes from foreign organisms. These often include genetic elements of viruses and bacteria.

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.
" There are no restrictions on the term "natural", and it often constitutes nothing more than meaningless marketing hype. Genetically Modified Food. Genetically Altered Foods. "Recombinant DNA technology faces our society with problems unprecedented not only in the history of science, but of life on Earth.
It places in human hands the capacity to redesign living organisms, the products of three billion years of evolution. Such intervention must not be confused with previous intrusions upon the natural order of living organisms: animal and plant breeding...All the earlier procedures worked within single or closely related species...Our morality up to now has been to go ahead without restriction to learn all that we can about nature.
Restructuring nature was not part of the bargain...this direction may be not only unwise, but dangerous. Potentially, it could breed new animal and plant diseases, new sources of cancer, novel epidemics. " Deaths and Near-Deaths 1. 2. Round Up Ready Herbicide Found to be Carcinogenic. By Dr.
Mercola The World According to Monsanto is an absolutely brilliant documentary that should be on the required viewing list of virtually everyone on the planet. While it's already a few years old, the information it contains will remain current until we stop allowing genetically engineered crops to be planted altogether. The film explains how the biotech giant Monsanto threatens to destroy the agricultural biodiversity that has served mankind for thousands of years. I must warn you though; it may bring tears to your eyes as you learn how they have decimated so many lives and part of the environment through their morally bankrupt behavior. The Biotech Weblog: Kellogg Will Use Monsanto's Low Linolenic Soybean Oil. » Safety Group Blows Lid on ‘Secret Virus’ Hidden in GMO Crops Alex Jones. Anthony Gucciardi Infowars.com Feb 7, 2013 Yet another disturbing reason has emerged as to why you should be avoiding health-devastating genetically modified organisms, and it may be one of the most concerning yet.
We know that GMO consumption has been linked to a host of serious conditions, but one thing we are not so sure about is the recent discovery of a hidden viral gene deep within genetically modified crops. For years, GMOs have been consumed knowingly and unknowingly around the globe, with Monsanto and the United States government claiming that the altered franken crops are perfectly safe despite very limited (or virtually none in some cases) initial testing and scientists speaking out against the dangers. Kucinich Calls Out Monsanto: Americans Demand GMO Labeling. » Whole Foods knowingly engages in massive GMO deception, says undercover video by ‘Organic Spies’ Alex Jones. Mike Adams Natural News Sept 27, 2012 Whole Foods deceives consumers into unknowingly buying GMOs while financially supporting a GMO supply chain that ultimately enriches Monsanto, charges an explosive new undercover sting video released by Organic Spies.
(Link below.) The video features secret camera footage from a dozen Whole Foods stores in the Los Angeles area, capturing Whole Foods employees lying on camera about the genetically engineered ingredients found in products sold at Whole Foods. “It’s against our policy to carry anything that’s grown with GMOs in it,” says one employee, caught on camera. But according to Organic Spies, anywhere from 20% – 30% of Whole Foods products contain GMOs. » Why Do Supporters of Genetically Engineered Foods Insist on Organics for Their Own Families? Alex Jones.
Joseph MercolaMercola.com October 9, 2012 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.’ Everything’s organic, I’m told, including the ingredients to Romney’s favorite, peanut butter and honey sandwiches.” » GM Mutant Cows to Produce ‘Engineered Milk’ for Babies Alex Jones.

Feds Planning To Raid Bundy Ranch Americans Draw Line in Sand. Source on Genetically Modified Crops. Monsanto found guilty of chemical poisoning in landmark case. (NaturalNews) A French farmer who can no longer perform his routine farming duties because of permanent pesticide injuries has had his day in court, literally, and the perpetrator of his injuries found guilty of chemical poisoning.
The French court in Lyon ruled that Monsanto's Lasso weedkiller formula, which contains the active ingredient alachlor, caused Paul Francois to develop lifelong neurological damage that manifests as persistent memory loss, headaches, and stuttering during speech. Reports indicate that the 47-year-old farmer sued Monsanto back in 2004 after inhaling the Lasso product while cleaning his sprayer tank equipment. Not long after, Francois began experiencing lasting symptoms that prevented him from working, which he says were directly linked to exposure to the chemical. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), exposure to alachlor can cause damage to the liver, kidneys, spleen, and eyes, and may lead to the development of anemia and even cancer.
Study: GMO toxins found in nearly all pregnant women, unborn babies. (NaturalNews) A recent study published in the journal Reproductive Toxicology debunks yet another lie of the biotechnology industry concerning genetically-modified organisms (GMOs).
According to an analysis conducted by researchers from the University of Sherbrooke Hospital Centre in Quebec, Canada, 100 percent of pregnant women and their unborn babies tested positive for GMO toxins in their blood, proving that transgenic materials are not effectively broken down and eliminated during digestion as we have all been told. The study, which is featured in the new Jeffrey Smith documentary Genetic Roulette ( examined the blood of 30 pregnant women and 39 non-pregnant women. The research team, led by Aziz Aris and Samuel Leblanc, looked for glyphosate (Roundup); gluphosinate, an active ingredient in various broad-spectrum herbicides; Cry1Ab, the Bt toxin of gluphosinate; and several metabolites of both glyphosate and gluphosinate.
Natural brands betray consumers over GMO labeling: NaturalNews issues boycott of Kashi, Silk, Larabar and more. (NaturalNews) It's time to defeat evil in the food industry and stop the vicious betrayal of consumers by so-called "natural" brands. They're all conspiring right now to funnel millions of dollars into a disinformation campaign to try to defeat ballot measure 37, the "GMO labeling" initiative in California ( Effective immediately, NaturalNews is issuing a global boycott on the following brands:
Genetically modified crops safety assessments: present limits and possible improvements. Need for chronic tests and other tests Chronic toxicity tests (both with males and females) and reproductive tests with pregnant females and then with the developing progeny over several generations (none of these steps exist at present) are called as a whole the Toxotest approach (or Risk management test, see "Details on the new suggested Toxotest approach"). This could address the long-term physiological or pathological relevance of the previous observations. Genetically Modified Foods. Genetically modified foods are compromised of organisms (known as GMOs for ‘genetically modified organisms’) which have been genetically altered for ‘improvement’. Biotechnology giant Monsanto is the primary maker of genetically modified seeds, responsible for 90 percent of the genetically engineered seed on the United States market.
The touted reasons for genetically modifying foods vary from making a fruit larger and seedless to resisting pesticides, herbicides, and insecticides. Millions of dollars are invested in this bioengineering process annually by many, with Bill Gates most notably investing into Monsanto with 500,000 shares. EU releases all data on GM corn linked to cancer.
The EU's food safety agency challenged its doubters on Monday, making available all the scientific information used to clear a genetically modified corn which a French researcher had linked to cancer.

If there was ever a nation that could see the purpose behind organic, sustainable farming, it would be a nation that is composed mostly of farmers. Such a place does exist, and it soon may be the first nation to go 100% organic, paving the way for others to do the same on a global scale. The Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan is known for a high level of citizen happiness, but it is doing something even more noteworthy in the near future.
With Prime Minister Jigmi Thinley making a major announcement regarding the organic farming project at the Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development which took place last month, the move has made national headlines.

EnviroPig. Leslie Hatfield: New Analysis of Wikileaks Shows State Department's Promotion of Monsanto's GMOs Abroad.
Back in December 2010, Wikileaks released thousands of cables between the US State Department and over 100 embassies around the world, some of which (about ten percent) shed light on the U.S. government's promotion of agricultural biotechnology abroad. The subject matter -- for those with a lot of time on their hands and a deep interest in the federal government's treatment of agricultural biotechnology -- was fascinating.
But the timing of the release -- just before the Christmas holiday -- could not have been worse, and the story mostly got buried. Flash forward to May 2013.
