[2009 Oct] Vilsack Mistakenly Pitched "GMOs-Feed-The-World" to an Audience of Experts--Oops by Jeffrey Smith The behemoth effort evaluated the last 50 years of agriculture, and prescribed the methods that were now needed to meet the development and sustainability goals of reducing hunger and poverty, improving nutrition, health and rural livelihoods, and facilitating social and environmental sustainability. And GMOs was not one of those needed methods! It was clear to the experts that the current generation of GMOs did not live up to the hype continuously broadcast by biotech companies and their promotional East Coast wing--the federal government.

In January of this year, Dr. P. M. Bhargava, one of the world's
top biologists, told me that after reviewing 600 scientific journals, he
concluded that the GM foods in the US are largely responsible for the increase
in many serious diseases. In May, the
Academy of Environmental Medicine concluded that animal studies have
causal relationship between GM foods and infertility, accelerated aging,
dysfunctional insulin regulation, changes in major organs and the
gastrointestinal system, and immune problems such as asthma, allergies, and

Jeffrey Smith’s forthcoming book, Genetic Roulette, documents more than 60 health risks of GM foods in easy-to-read two-page spreads, and demonstrates how current safety assessments are not competent to protect consumers from the dangers. His previous book, Seeds of Deception (www.seedsofdeception.com ), is the world’s best-selling book on the subject. He is available for media at email@example.com.

Spiked European Union report shows genetically-modified crops increase production costs for farmers. Read the report here
If these genetically engineered seeds blow onto a farmer’s field, Monsanto
could come on their field, test their crops, demand money from them and claim
ownership of the crops. The farmer, who probably doesn't want to have
genetically engineered seeds anywhere near his field, now has this
responsibility. It’s a very strange situation. It seems like Monsanto has all
the power and that they don't have any accountability or responsibility. If
contamination occurs on an innocent neighboring farm, somehow the innocent
farmer has to pay for the contamination. It’s illogical. This is now the way
that the system is working. It’s the opposite from what you would imagine..............
in order to determine whether or not these crops would be regulated, both the government and the biotech industry decided that these seeds would be considered “substantially equivalent” to normal seeds. This is simply not true. The reason why they came up with this determination was so that GE foods wouldn't have to be regulated, tested nor labeled.
...One future is industrial pesticides, chemical laden, tasteless food that is heavily processed, controlled by huge multinational corporations for their own benefit; the other future is exemplified by organic farmers who farm and feed people regionally with good healthy food that people can feel safe eating and eat in a sense of community and family. If people really understood what was happening to our food supply, they would choose good, safe, healthy food grown by a local farmer. If we choose to eat this way, we will also benefit by supporting local economies.

I'M APPALLED by the unfounded assumptions of 'experts' about the
hyper-infectious nature of the BSE/CJD agent (Mail). Basic evidence suggests
variant CJD didn't arise from eating BSE-affected cattle. Third World
countries imported even greater quantities of the incriminated British meat than
we consumed here, but no cases of vCJD have occurred in those countries. I've
travelled worldwide carrying out analyses of areas with prion diseases, of which
vCJD is one. These diseases increase only in areas with a high manganese/low
copper imbalance. Experiments at
Cambridge and Case Western, Cleveland, universities confirmed my findings that
misshapen prions develop whenever brain cells are exposed to this imbalance.
I found one organophosphate — poured on cows to counteract warble fly and on humans for headlice — which bonded with copper in the brain, starving the prion protein of its copper partner. When this happens, foreign metals, such as manganese, are more likely to bond with prions, which can have devastating consequences. Manganese is increasing in the environment due to its use as a fertiliser and fungicide, a lead substitute in petrol, and emission from factories. It was fed to UK cattle in calf milk replacement powder (at levels up to 1,000 times higher than in normal cow's milk) and as supplements for bone growth. Manganese is also fed to humans (in health food supplements), deer (for antler growth) and cats —and all have had prion disease. The totalitarian mindset about the origins of prion diseases betrays an agenda. It's more about global profits for the GM soya protein empires than about the illusory health risks of animal proteins to humans. MARK PURDEY. Taunton.
great lie about GM foods being about feeding the word.] We'd shown that protein could be made from natural gas, that it
could be done successfully on a large scale, and that it could be done
cheaply (a pound would cost about 11 cents to produce, and would provide
eight people with 100 % of their protein needs for a day). And we had done
it in one year — half the time we'd been allotted for completion!
When we were called into the vice president's office on the afternoon of New Year's Eve, we expected a raise and a pat on the back. ...... "Gentlemen," he said nonchalantly, "the Board of Directors has decided to terminate your project, effective immediately."........They were actually firing us! .......Finally, when I could stand it no longer, I marshalled my courage and called the president of Tenneco. How could they do this senseless thing?
"Friend," he told me, "if I had a whole mountain of protein, I wouldn't have the slightest idea what to do with it. Who's gonna buy something like that?"
I was dumb struck. What about the starving millions? Was the profit motive all that counted for anything? I told myself that it could not be so, that somewhere there must be a company which would embrace the project and develop it to full potential. But I was still naive, and I still believed that the best way to make money was to make things people really needed. BEATING THE FOOD GIANTS by Paul A. Stitt
"The very idea of disease-free animals and disease-free people fuels the appetite for genetic engineering. It decreases our levels of tolerance and resilience. It breeds fear, anxiety and paranoia - the kind of fear that is moving the military might of Britain to declare a war against its hoofed inhabitants. This paranoia suits the genetic engineering industry perfectly. By exterminating farm animals, the option of small organic farms is eroded. By creating a fear of disease, a new market is created for Dolly, and Polly and Tracy and all their clones. We should stop this war against farm animals. Without them we will never be able to build a sustainable farming future."---Dr Vandana Shiva
