"You live in the United States of America. As far as I understand, it's up to you, and the rest of the people living there, how long and in what manner you will allow this to continue."
I wish that were so! But the government seems to be running amok, doing whatever it wants, not listening to the people at all. And disastrous consequences are occurring....the worst of which is yet to be completely known as now GMO-alfalfa was approved. Since alfalfa is naturally resistant to most bugs and weeds, why was GMO-alfalfa necessary? It will pollute our animals who eat it and create super-weeds, like the GMO-soy and corn already have.
But somehow, there is now idea that GMO is "good" for us (or more importantly, good for Monsanto Chemical) just as vaccines are "good" for us (or rather good for the manufacturers, who cannot be sued for adverse effects).
And historically, the addition of fluoride to our water was considered "good" and generally in the US still is thought of that way, in spite of studies showing it does nothing to prevent tooth decay and actually causes all sorts of other problems inside of our bodies, especially to our thyroids.
So pouring chemicals onto its people is evidently the modus operandi of the United States, and I don't know how to fight it except to buy organic food as much as I can find it and not vaccinate my kids or myself. And finally, speaking of chemotherapy, I worked in oncology for a decade, and very few of the doctors I knew treating the patients would go through chemotherapy themselves if diagnosed with cancer because they knew it killed more people than it saved!
