A Silent Forest

http://www.freespeech.org/video/silent-forest

In case you haven't seen this yet- you should. Hosted by Dr. David Suzuki... It explains more about Monsanto and the devastation that will occur if GE trees are allowed.

For those of you that wondered what I meant about the person eating the GMO taking on some characteristics of the GMO gene... I am speaking about horizontal gene transfer. It occurs on a microscopic level in bacteria. There is bacteria in soil and inside living beings. Others are more gifted than I at explaining it so that others can comprehend it, that is why I pass on links.

It is my scientific opinion that those that continue to eat foods that contain the terminator gene, genes from unrelated species, and genes that are resistant to round up and other chemicals will become more and more ill, pass on sterility to their young, have odd maladies such as Morgellon's Disease and other new things we have not seen, as well as continued increase in diabetes, cancer, etc.... It is a choice we can make, to allow ourselves to become part of the plan of the elite and depopulate, or we can decide to become more self sustaining, and also vote with our purchases what we think is safe.

Nature knew what it is doing and still does, interfering with what is natural will only bring destruction IMO.

gg hope this makes sense, will read the thread later

Well, sort of. My biggest objection to GMO crops is that it is very difficult to contain "genetic drift" and cross pollination.

If we really wanted to get out our tinfoil hats and play the X-Files conspiracy game, we could wonder if CCD is somebody's way of containing genetic drift. (I don't think this is the case. This is something I just made up. Please DO NOT go reposting this as fact somewhere.)

thanks for the info and thread.

Ill never understand how anyone is truly ok with GMO foods.

its just not natural. in any way.

gmo "whole foods" are not whole foods. if you are eating GMO foods you are NOT eating whole foods. at all.

for that reason alone, I do not eat GMO foods.

organic crops will never feed 6.5 million people hell bent on continuing to eat oreos and doritos and chugging down mountaindew all day... no.

organic crops may not even be able to feed 6.5 million people eating a "natural whole foods diet" either... because most of that diet is grain centric.. which in itself is not natural... but thats another thread I suppose.

organic crops shouldnt have to feed the world in the same way the world is being fed now!

if people were forced to start eating locally, seasonally and had to start growing some of their own food and taking more responsibility of their own diets- the world would be juuuust fine.

Horizontal gene transfer takes place. Yes it does. Traits of GMO are not necessarily more scary or worse than non GMO. A gene is a gene is a gene. Where did this hysteria come from? Do you think every trait in "Actual Organic" matter that passes your lips is desirable to your make up? Does it even matter? The transfer is so much more complicated than that. You do not literally become what you eat. I mean sure, the molecules local to us obviously are the ones that react with the ones we call "us", but that is getting flat out ridiculous.

How far do you want to take the nonsense?

thanks karika for all the informative links you've posted here . IMO people should make an "informed" choice since they do have to live with the consequences.

What is so hard to believe about that video? Wasn't there an attempt at a "Great Culling" just a few decades ago? (The Holocaust)  History. Fact.  But, we are just crazy for fearing the possibility that history might repeat itself?

 

And by the way, GMO's are bad.  Here's a video I want to pass on... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eY2U0d2a8Cg

Are GMO foods the reason or one of the main reasons for the huge rise in food allergies - specifically peanuts and gluten?

I was just reading an article that was linking (as a possibility) GMO's with food allergies that are often suffered by children with autism. My stepson is autistic and has sensitivities to certain foods such as tomatoes - which used to be the poster vegetable for GM foods - but I have read that the GM tomatoes are no longer being cultivated commercially in the US.

 

I'm glad that this thread resurfaced as it is something that is of interest to me, as it pertains to both my human family and my "equine family" who consume large rations of feed based mostly on corn, soy and sugar beet.

I don't have anything to really add, but thank you so much for this thread and all the info you've been posting. I know GMO is terrible for you, but I never realized exactly HOW terrible.

Here is how to tell if your fruit/vegetables are conventionally grown, organic, or GMO. Look at the sticker on the produce.

Here's how it works:

For conventionally grown fruit, (grown with chemicals inputs), the PLU code on the sticker consists of four numbers. Organically grown fruit has a five-numeral PLU prefaced by the number 9. Genetically engineered (GM) fruit has a five-numeral PLU prefaced by the number 8.

A conventionally grown banana would be: 4011

An organic banana would be: 94011

A genetically engineered (GE or GMO) banana would be: 84011


I know avoiding GMO can be hard especially since its cheap & the economy we are in - but like 'karika - above poster' we just eat less meat. You wouldn't believe the amount of money you save when you buy less frozen pre-prepared food, meat, junk food, sweets.

this has been proven as an urban myth. there is nothing on the bar code which has anything to do with GMO.

 

i think someone posted that link which has info about GMO.

 

but you know what. its pretty easy to spot GMO. corn. high fructose corn syrup. its in EVERYTHING!!! avoid processed foods and focus on whole foods and watch where your whole foods come from.
