GMO's

 

Let's remember that GMO's are classified as pesticides; so why would we want to eat them?  GMO's are not the same as plants that have been selectively bred either.  By definition, when you eat a GMO, you may be partaking in cannibalism.  Let that sink in.

Are GMO's safe? Most developed nations do not consider GMO’s to be safe and have significant restrictions or outright bans on the production and sale of GMO’s. The U.S. and Canadian governments, though, have approved GMO’s based on studies conducted by the same corporations that created them and profit from their sale.

How do GMO's affect farmers?Because GMO’s are novel life forms, biotechnology companies have been able to obtain patents with which to restrict their use. As a result, the companies that make GMO’s now have the power to sue farmers whose fields are contaminated with GMO’s, even when it is the result of inevitable drift from neighboring fields. GMO’s therefore pose a serious threat to farmer sovereignty and to the national food security of any country where they are grown, including the United States and Canada.

What are the impacts of GMO's on the environment?More than 80% of all GMO’s grown worldwide are engineered for herbicide tolerance. As a result, use of toxic herbicides like Roundup has increased 16 times since GMO’s were introduced. GM crops are also responsible for the emergence of herbicide resistant “super weeds” and “super bugs,” which can only be killed with more toxic poisons like 2,4-D (a major ingredient in Agent Orange). GMO’s are a direct extension of chemical agriculture and are developed and sold by the world’s biggest chemical companies. The long-term impacts of GMO’s are unknown, and once released into the environment, these novel organisms cannot be recalled.

There is a lot of information out there about the adverse effects of GMO’s.  The question is, are there safe alternatives to GMO’s and deadly pesticides?  Yes there are.  Companion planting is a good way to keep pests down and you can also make your own natural or safe pesticides.
