Monsanto will be rubbing their hands together in tentative glee as the powers that be in the UK – who preside over a citizenry that traditionally reject GM crop ‘technology’ – try to scare everyone into surrendering to the mega-corp via their latest Food 2030 report.

Whilst a food crisis certainly threatens, adding to the crisis by planting GMOs all over ‘Ol Blighty would less than help.

For those not aware of the importance of battling GMOs every step of the way, I embed the clip below. Jeffrey Smith is the tireless foe of all things GM. He has accumulated considerable knowledge of the topic and works hard to spread this knowledge in every way possible. I would certainly recommend his books for a more detailed examination, but the video presentation here is an excellent intro to the topic to get you up to speed.

    This would have to be the most urgent problem that humanity has to deal with NOW…

    A link to what’s allowed in Australia now

    And the CSIRO’s official stance on GM foods.

    Ive also posted the link to http://www.responsibletechnology.org/utility/showArticle/?objectID=2989
    on facebook to urge my friends to spend 10 minutes reading about this issue. Ive also printed a copy of each document to go up on the notice board in the lunch room at work.

    We can stop greedy corporations like Monsanto by Voting with Our Wallets. If we continue to buy Genetically Engineered Foods, we support these companies. And let’s stop buying seeds from seed companies owned by them, too.

    Here in the USA, Genetic Modification is not allowed to be identified on packages. Buy organic, buy local, grow our own. These crops must be purchased organic or with the Non-GMO sticker on them.

    Current Commercial GM Crops in USA:
    (estimated % of US total crops)
    1. Soy (89%) look for it in bread with soy flour and soy oil, soy milk, soy protein powder, chocolate – soy lecithin;
    2. Cotton (83%) in Chips and snacks fried in cottonseed oil
    3. Canola (75%) Oil, fried products, health foods, baked goods
    4. Corn (61%)- Thousands of products, High Fructose Corn syrup, corn starch, corn oil, corn flour
    5. Hawaiian papaya (more than 50%)
    6. Alfalfa (small amount)
    7. Zucchini and yellow squash (small amount)
    8. Quest® Tobacco
    9. Sugar from beets (50%) almost entirely GM

    Other Sources of GMOs:
    -Dairy products from cows injected with rbGH.
    -Vegetarian or Vegan Rennet (recombinant chymosin) in hard cheese
    -Food additives, enzymes, flavorings, and processing agents, including rennet used to make hard cheese, and GMO derived sweeteners Aspartame (NutraSweet®) and Equal.
    -Meat, eggs, and dairy products from animals who’ve eaten GM feed including packaged food from feed stores. Organic is not enough. Must say “Tested for No GMO”.
    -Honey and bee pollen that may have GM sources of pollen
    -Contamination or pollination caused by GM seeds or pollen

    Probably Genetically Modified:
    •Vegetable oil made with soy, corn, cottonseed, and/or canola: vegetable oil, margarines, vegetable fat like Crisco
    •Ingredients derived from soybeans: Soy flour, soy protein, soy isolates, soy isoflavones, soy lecithin, vegetable proteins, textured vegetable protein (TVP), tofu, tamari, tempeh, and soy protein supplements.
    •Ingredients derived from corn: Corn flour, corn gluten, corn masa, corn starch, corn syrup, cornmeal, and High-Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS).

    Foods That Generally Contain GM Ingredients in the USA:
    Cosmetics, Soaps, Detergents, Shampoo, Bubble bath,Infant formula, Salad dressings, Bread, Cereal, Hamburgers and Hotdogs, Margarine,Mayonnaise, Crackers, Cookies, Chocolate, Candy, Fried food, Chips,Veggie burgers, Meat substitutes, Ice cream, Frozen yogurt, Tofu, Tamari, Soy sauce, Soy cheese, Tomato sauce. Protein powder,Baking powder (sometimes contains corn starch), Powdered sugar (often contains corn starch), Confectioner’s glaze, Alcohol, Vanilla and Vanilla extract (may contain corn syrup), Powdered sugar, Peanut butter, Enriched flour, Pasta, Malt,White vinegar

    Sigh …

    I know this is important, but I wish the video didn’t run so dang long.

    I’m going to have to bookmark it for later viewing..

    Anyway, thanks for all the good information.

    Its worth watching the whole video as soon as you get time but I agree that if more people are to understand the subject, a shorter video with all the facts should be made. Has anyone come across better material that can be printed out?

    When are these GMO companies going to be sued in a class-action lawsuit for ‘crimes against humanity’ and ‘environmental terrorism’?

    Knowingly falsifying or withholding evidence (scientific data) shows will-full intent in this case, and the fact that the fertilizer/chemicals/pesticides that they manufacture to work with the GMO crops kills the soil for any other crop proves that they have a vested interest in destroying the environment so that only their products will grow there… not to mention that they have a vested interest in destroying any viable, natural seed stock.

    It’s time a campaign is started that uses these terms, because they are accurate. The seriousness of what these corporations are doing should have universal outrage.

    ‘Crimes against humanity’ and ‘environmental terrorism’ are only two of a long list of charges that could be levied against them. But they are the two that people understand, and understand the level of crime associated with them.

    Don’t even get me started on the ability to ‘patent’ a plant… the concept is completely absurd.
