The word is out. Genetically modified foods are grossly incompatible with human digestion and it also contaminates the environment. The French in an unanimous show of force went to a Monsanto sponsored field full of grapevines uprooting the whole crop.
When Haiti experienced the devastating earthquake this year, Monsanto offered 475 tons of hybrid corn and terminator vegetable seeds in partnership with USAID. (Rady Ananda) According to Ananda, the terminator seeds are only good for one planting; the seeds self-destruct and there are no viable duplicate seeds to reinvest into the soil for another crop. Sounds strange doesn’t it? Who ever heard of any plant life not being able to reproduce? Haitian farmers revolted via Haitian farm leader Chavannes Jean-Baptiste observed that he biotech plan makes farmers dependent on multinational corporations.
GMO crops that Monsanto may be inserting into the food supply include cotton, corn, soybean, sugar beets, beef, milk and others. The beef is cloned by the way.
Professor John Kozy in the article Corpulent Country, Obesity in the USA, details clearly that the chief cause of obesity in the U.S., the most obese nation in the world, is due to the mass production of fast food, the addition of salt, sugar, fats and other brain altering chemicals, the philosophy of greed over the priority to moral imperative which should supersede most any decision that is made for a country. The philosophy of greed has amassed a huge fortune for the processed food industry while slowly destroying the immune systems of perhaps two generations of humans. To think that processed food is becoming a Chinese staple is ….
Kozy supplants that “…the real crisis is the obesity of the fat-cats running the nation.” And “…Programs always have to have an “economic benefit, because moral considerations have been completely expunged from this society. If any reader of this piece is still trying to identify the “mark of Cain,” let me identify it for him/her: It is the dollar sign, and the uppercase S that forms its base stands for? The gluttony of greed, a combination of two of the seven deadly sins, the worst of all obesities, has become the controlling American value.
Not only would farmers have to come back to Monsanto every year for seeds but they would also have to use their fertilizer. The name of this chemical is Round-up. Round-up kills the weeds, but in the process a new generation of weed has been produced; a kind of super-weed. It is harder to kill and takes huge amounts of pesticide to be effective in controlling the proliferation. F. William Engdahl calls this phenomenon Giant Super-Weeds plague. The article, Genetically Manipulated Crops: The GMO Catastrophe in the USA. A Lesson for the World, catalogues super-weeds as the weeds that cannot be killed. ABC television interviewed farmers and scientists across Arkansas who described fields overrun with giant pigweed plants that can withstand as much glyphosate as farmers are able to spray.
The farmers that are buying the seeds from Monsanto are forced legally to buy the herbicide also with the Super-Weed as a result.
Consider this quote from William Engdahl’s article: “Thirteen years of GMO crops in the USA has increased overall pesticide use by 318 million pounds, not decreased as promised by the Four Horsemen of the GMO Apocalypse.”
