Gmo Food, E Numbers, Monsanto Part 2

by Jonathan M. King.

Many of the problems of poverty are brought about by GM farming. This means the farming of genetically modified crops. This sort of farming creates the following problems.

*Redirection of water thus starving other crops.

*Reclaiming stealing land through 3rd world government corruption.

*Using land for western crops forcing up the price in 3rd world countries and ruining the local market.

*Using Monsanto crops means nothing else grows on that land, when they are done it’s a wasteland.

*Taking land that should be used for food but using it for bio fuel, palm oil or corn for animal feed.

*The product is modified so that if a bug eats it their stomach is eaten out from the inside much like rat poison. (this is what you eat, just in small doses)

*Forces up the emissions by transporting food thousands of kilometers around the planet.

*Many farmers in third world countries are committing suicide as a result of GM farming.

*Monsanto is the father of genetically modified foods. This company worked for the defense machine and brought us Agent Orange and nerve gas. They also teamed up with IG Farbin, the main supplier of Zyklon-B, (a cyanide based pesticide) to the Nazis during World War 2. This was the main ingredient in the gas used to exterminate the Jews. Monsanto also had a hand in researching uranium for the Manhattan project.

*Monsanto owns 90% of GM crops. All sorts of genes are introduced into GM products so the vegetables on your plate will have genes from the following:

Apples=moth, Lettuce= Rat, Potato= Spider, Corn=Bacteria, Soy=Cow, Sugar cane = Cow.

*These crops are grown out of doors and they’re seeds are blown everywhere. They can replicate and pass on their alien construct to other crops. They were also supposed to produce higher yield. This is simply not true though farmers are forced to buy patented GM seeds which increase in price each year. Here’s the catch, Monsanto produces pesticides and herbicides. There are 2 kinds of GM crops

1/ Resistant to herbicides which means in which case the company produces the herbicide required or

2/ the GM crop emits an insecticide. This kills other living creatures and field growth.

As always nature develops a resistance to the pesticides, these are the laws of nature so increasingly stronger pesticides are used and the farmer has no way back. He is now a Monsanto junky.

In South America massive expanses of rainforests are being wiped out daily to make room for GM crops and monocultures. Rain forests are the medicine vault of the planet. Once a GM crop has been there they never grow back. The soil and ground water is also poisoned killing off locals who drink it. The sickness they acquire is not traceable to Monsanto.END PART 2

This is very criminal what they are doing to line their pockets. Sounds like a job for Interpol.

I agree, it's a shame that corporations can lobby to decide what is illegal.
