Seeds of destruction
WITH REFERENCE TO your report headlined “Super maize (2 October) I request you read Seeds of Destruction – The Hidden Agenda of Genetic Manipulation, by F William Engdahl (Global Research), before making pronouncements on the good of genetically modified (GM) plants without knowing their evil side.
As a trained physiology researcher I’m shocked at the “scientific” method of randomly blasting gene snippets, miss-and-hit approach adopted by Monsanto, which appears to be more focused on cornering the world’s seed production. Is it any wonder the company produces the only seeds able to withstand its herbicide, Round-Up?
Monsanto protects its seeds with terminator genes. People need to ask: “What are the effects of these genes?” when eating the produce. Also, why is it that non-target animals prefer natural products – to the point of starvation – over GM food? Do animals know something we don’t? Why is the United States becoming the largest nation with cancer patients? Is it coincidental that the US produces the most GM foods?
With the positive correlation between fertiliser and oil prices, perhaps a strong economical case can be made for organically grown.
I welcome upcoming legislation forcing manufacturers to label their GM food products and being given the option to taste real food again.
