Genetically Modified Organism

Genetically Modified Organism:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A genetically modified organism (GMO) or genetically engineered organism (GEO) is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. These techniques, generally known as recombinant DNA technology, use DNA molecules from different sources, which are combined into one molecule to create a new set of genes. This DNA is then transferred into an organism, giving it modified or novel genes. Transgenic organisms, a subset of GMOs, are organisms which have inserted DNA that originated in a different species. . . (Read More>

Genetically Modified Food:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Genetically modified (GM) foods are foods derived from genetically modified organisms. Genetically modified organisms have had specific changes introduced into their DNA by genetic engineering techniques. These techniques are much more precise than mutagenesis (mutation breeding) where an organism is exposed to radiation or chemicals to create a non-specific but stable change. Other techniques by which humans modify food organisms . . . (Read More)

Big government in bed with Monsanto:


How government agents covered up Roundup's birth defects

(NaturalNews) Truly disturbing are the lengths to which big government will go to conspire with big corporations to keep people sick in their reckless pursuit of profits and power. A recent study, published in the Journal of Environmental and Analytical Toxicology offers up more disturbing evidence that the very government agencies charged with protecting the health and safety of the world's populations simply cannot be trusted.

At the center of the study is a 1998 assessment report by German authorities on a group of previous industry-sponsored studies on glyphosate (the key ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup herbicide), dating as far back as the 1980s. According to the German report, those many years of unpublished studies showed that glyphosate was not a teratogen, or reproductive toxin. Findings of that report were later cited in a rebuttal by the German Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL, a German acronym) to a more recent 2010 study, which did in fact find glyphosate alone could lead to malformations in the embryos of certain species. Backed by similar findings from other separate studies, this conflicting data sparked a controversy over the safety of the production and consumption of Monsanto´s Roundup Ready soybeans, a crop which is genetically engineered to survive repeated exposure to glyphosate. . . .


Shock findings in new GMO study:

Rats fed lifetime of GM corn grow horrifying tumors,
70% of females die early

(NaturalNews) Eating genetically modified corn (GM corn) and consuming trace levels of Monsanto's Roundup chemical fertilizer caused rats to develop horrifying tumors, widespread organ damage, and premature death. That's the conclusion of a shocking new study that looked at the long-term effects of consuming Monsanto's genetically modified corn.

The study has been deemed "the most thorough research ever published into the health effects of GM food crops and the herbicide Roundup on rats." News of the horrifying findings is spreading like wildfire across the internet, with even the mainstream media seemingly in shock over the photos of rats with multiple grotesque tumors... tumors so large the rats even had difficulty breathing in some cases . . .

GMOs may be the new thalidomide.


HELP STOP Genetically Engineered Alfalfa


USDA is about to approve

Genetically Engineered Alfalfa

Tell President Obama: “NO GE/GM ALFALFA!”

USDA has completed its environmental review of GE Alfalfa, and is poised to approve (“de-regulate”) its use.

Secretary Vilsack has rejected the option to prohibit the planting (and continuing to regulate) GE Alfalfa, despite the clear recognition in its environmental impact study that that GE contamination of organic and conventionally grown crops presents a huge problem. Alfalfa is a primary feed for organic dairy and livestock production. . . . (Read More)
