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.
In some cases an antibiotic resistant gene is also included. These foods may have unpredictable side efffects including allergenic or toxic properties. According to geneticist Dr Mae-Wan Ho, “The soil bacterium [in GM soya], Agrobacterium sp. Some of the implications for health may be long term and so we will only come to discover their full impact on human health over time, and even that will be difficult to track in the absence of clear compulsory labelling.

What you don't know can hurt you. 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. " There are no restrictions on the term "natural", and it often constitutes nothing more than meaningless marketing hype. Most disturbing of all, many foods labeled as "natural" actually contain genetically engineered ingredients, and breakfast cereals are particularly guilty of this. Good Business 101: Do Not Deceive Your Customers At the beginning of December, General Mills' Cheerios brand released a Facebook app asking "fans" to "show what Cheerios mean to them.
" "You could literally spend all day looking at 'Recent Posts by Others' on Cheerios' Facebook page - they are nearly all complaints about GMOs and declarations of boycotts.

"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.

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.

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. One such danger that has actually not been spoken about has been revealed in a recent report by a safety watchdog group known as the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). Another Dirty Secret of Monsanto Overall, there is a degree of knowledge on Gene VI.

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. When asked whether Whole Foods products contain GMOs, another employee says, “Absolutely not. This statement is, of course, patently absurd. “Whole Foods has mastered the art of bait and switch” “Genetically engineered foods are everywhere…” says the video.

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.” Even more interesting, in a 2002 article3 about Romney’s wife, Ann, she credits a combination of organic foods and holistic medicine for turning her health around after she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1998.

GlossaryLinksAbout Themes covered Publications A-Z. 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.

(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: • Kashi (owned by Kellogg, which has contributed $612,000 to defeat Proposition 37) - Kashi cereals contain GMOs! • Silk soymilk (owned by the nation's largest dairy, Dean Foods, which has contributed $253,000 to the effort to kill Proposition 37) • Larabar (owned by General Mills, which has contributed $520,000 to defeat proposition 37) • R.W. . • Santa Cruz Organic (also owned by Smucker, which has contributed $387,000 to defeat proposition 37) • Cascadian Farm (owned by General Mills, which has contributed $520,000 to defeat proposition 37) Boycott these brands -- the BETRAYORS of the food industry.
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.
The physiological interpretations of 90-day-based effects are otherwise somewhat limited. These studies should be complementary to the present regulations or the Safotest and the sentinel test suggested by EFSA . The Toxotest could provide evidence of carcinogenic, developmental, hormonal, neural, and reproductive potential dysfunctions, as it does for pesticides or drugs. Sex- or dose-specific pathological effects are common Improving the knowledge on impacts of modified Bt toxins Details on the new suggested Toxotest approach. 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. But are GMO foods really the solution to humanity’s problems, or are they negatively affecting virtually all life on planet earth? Genetically modified foods have been proven not only to be unhealthy, but also deadly. Beyond GM seeds and the Bt pesticide, Monsanto is also the creator of the best-selling herbicide Roundup.
