Just Say No to GMO

    Very well done.

    That said, the information on how you can tell if GMO food is included in a product by reading the barcode is kind of buried in there. It went by so fast, I missed it.
    How about posting it in a reply.

    In truth, I don’t see how boycotting the food is going to make a dent in the issue. Monsanto is hell bent on “owning” the food supply and they have the $ to whether a boycott. They need to be dismantled. Protests need organizing and gov’t agencies need to be involved. Oops, I forgot… gov’t is in bed with them.

  2. Agreed, there’s no stopping GMO unless they eventually realize it’s causing some kind of horrible plague on man, but to my knowledge there are no crazy bizarre new diseases out there /sarcasm

    The way they said to identify GMO fruit and vegetables was via the 5 digit code and it will start with an “8”.

    You are correct in that Monsanto exec’s have moved into the FDA and taken high level positions. It could be stopped, no doubt it is dangerous, I think the studies will prove that out, but who knows.

  3. That is really, really depressing, but thanks for posting.
    I didn’t know what “Codex Alimenarius” meant so I googled it. Whoah. I am a little in shock. I copied the following from an aricle:

    “If Codex Alimentarius has its way, then herbs, vitamins, minerals, homeopathic remedies, amino acids and other natural remedies you have taken for granted most of your life will be gone. The name of the game for Codex Alimentarius is to shift all remedies into the prescription category so they can be controlled exclusively by the medical monopoly and its bosses, the major pharmaceutical firms. Predictably, this scenario has been denied by both the Canadian Health Food Association and the Health Protection Branch of Canada (HPB).

    The Codex Alimentarius proposals already exist as law in Norway and Germany where the entire health food industry has literally been taken over by the drug companies. In these countries, vitamin C above 200 mg is illegal as is vitamin E above 45 IU, vitamin B1 over 2.4 mg and so on. Shering-Plough, the Norway pharmaceutical giant, now controls an Echinacea tincture, which is being sold there as an over the counter drug at grossly inflated prices. The same is true of ginkgo and many other herbs, and only one government controlled pharmacy has the right to import supplements as medicines which they can sell to health food stores, convenience stores or pharmacies.”

    It is now a criminal offence in parts of Europe to sell herbs as foods. An agreement called EEC6565 equates selling herbs as foods to selling other illegal drugs. Action is being taken to accelerate other European countries into ‘harmonization’ as well.

    Paul Hellyer in his book, “The Evil Empire,” states: “Codex Alimentarius is supported by international banks and multinational corporations including some in Canada, and is in reality a bill of rights for these banks and the corporations they control. It will hand over our sovereign rights concerning who may or may not invest in our countries to an unelected world organization run by big business. The treaty would make it impossible for Canadian legislators either federal or provincial to alter or improve environmental standards for fear of being sued by multinational corporations whether operating in Canada or not.

    This will create a world without borders ruled by a virtual dictatorship of the world’s most powerful central banks and multinational companies. This world is an absolute certainty if we all sit on our hands and do nothing.”

  4. The Codex Alimentarius Commission was created in 1963 by FAO and WHO to develop food standards, guidelines and related texts such as codes of practice under the Joint FAO/WHO Food Standards Programme. The main purposes of this Programme are protecting health of the consumers and ensuring fair trade practices in the food trade, and promoting coordination of all food standards work undertaken by international governmental and non-governmental organizations


    Funny how they’re always doing things to protect us isn’t it …

  5. The WHO has already blessed off on GMO’s, saying this:

    GM foods currently available on the international market have undergone risk assessments and are not likely to present risks for human health any more than their conventional counterparts.

    The risk-assessment guidelines specified by CAC are thought to be adequate for the safety assessment of GM foods currently on the international market. Guidelines for environmental risk assessment have been developed under the Convention on Biological Diversity.

    The potential risks associated with GMOs and GM foods should be assessed on a case-by-case basis, taking into account the characteristics of the GMO or the GM food and possible differences of the receiving environments.

    In the field of potential risks derived from outcrossing or contamination from GM crops, relevant consequences need to be investigated for specific crops, and strategies for risk management need to be explored.

    As highlighted in the Codex Principles for the risk analysis of foods derived from modern biotechnology (CAC 2003b), the assessment of the potential of GM foods to elicit hypersensitivity reactions should be part of the risk assessment for GM foods. This includes a general analysis of the proteins expressed and assessment of the specific properties of the GM food under consideration to elicit hypersensitivity reactions. A better understanding of the impact and interaction of food with the immune system is required to decipher how and whether conventional and GM foods cause specific health and safety problems.
    New methodology for the development of GMOs may significantly reduce potential risks derived from the random integration of transgenes used in current methods.


    From 3.6 the conclusions …

    Like the video above says at the very beginning, anyone who tells you these things is basically lying. So the WHO uses “not likely” to be dangerous, that makes me feel all warm, snuggy, and safe. I wonder where the science behind “not likely” came from, the truth is, they don’t know, and in reality, the answer is probably “more likely than not” to be dangerous as they are introducing new DNA strands that have never existed before on this planet.

    But don’t get all depressed over it, in the end, let’s just keep plowing forward. In the end, justice will be served, there is no hiding place from the thrown of God. Do you think Monansto and Conagra representatives are walking around in the Halls of the WHO headquarters? You’d be a fool if you think not …
