Cotton Candy flavored grapes. Yes they taste like cotton candy. Yes they are gross. If you’re gonna flavor produce why would you pick the flavor the furthest away from anything natural? Let’s make peanut butter bananas! Nacho cheese watermelon! Hot dog pickles! Chocolate lettuce!

The Misleading War on GMOs: The Food Is Safe. The Rhetoric Is Dangerous.
Is genetically engineered food dangerous? Many people seem to think it is. In the past five years, companies have submitted more than 27,000 products to the Non-GMO Project, which certifies goods that are free of genetically modified organisms. Last year, sales of such products nearly tripled. Whole Foods will soon...

Some people, to this day, believe GE papayas are dangerous. They want more studies. They’ll always want more studies. They call themselves skeptics. But when you cling to an unsubstantiated belief, even after two decades of research and experience, that’s not skepticism. It’s dogma.

Twenty years after the debut of genetically engineered food, it’s a travesty that the technology’s commercial applications are still so focused on old-fashioned weedkillers. Greenpeace and Chipotle think the logical response to this travesty is to purge GMOs. They’re exactly wrong. The relentless efforts of Luddites to block testing, regulatory approval, and commercial development of GMOs are major reasons why more advanced GE products, such as Golden Rice, are still unavailable. The best way to break the herbicide industry’s grip on genetic engineering is to support the technology and push it forward, by telling policymakers, food manufacturers, and seed companies that you want better GMOs

The USDA’s catalog of recently engineered plants shows plenty of worthwhile options. The list includes drought-tolerant corn, virus-resistant plums, non-browning apples, potatoes with fewer natural toxins, and soybeans that produce less saturated fat. A recent global inventory by the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization discusses other projects in the pipeline: virus-resistant beans, heat-tolerant sugarcane, salt-tolerant wheat, disease-resistant cassava, high-iron rice, and cotton that requires less nitrogen fertilizer. Skim the news, and you’ll find scientists at work on more ambitious ideas: high-calcium carrots, antioxidant tomatoes, nonallergenic nuts, bacteria-resistant oranges, water-conserving wheat, corn and cassava loaded with extra nutrients, and a flaxlike plant that produces the healthy oil formerly available only in fish.

That’s what genetic engineering can do for health and for our planet. The reason it hasn’t is that we’ve been stuck in a stupid, wasteful fight over GMOs. On one side is an army of quacks and pseudo-environmentalists waging a leftist war on science. On the other side are corporate cowards who would rather stick to profitable weed-killing than invest in products that might offend a suspicious public. The only way to end this fight is to educate ourselves and make it clear to everyone—European governments, trend-setting grocers, fad-hopping restaurant chains, research universities, and biotechnology investors—that we’re ready, as voters and consumers, to embrace nutritious, environmentally friendly food, no matter where it got its genes. We want our GMOs. Now, show us what you can do.

Consumers Will Soon Have Devices In Their Hands To Detect GMOs And Toxic Foods

In the not too distant future, consumers will be able to run on-the-spot tests for environmental toxins, GMOs, pesticides, food safety and more with their smartphones and other hand-held devices.

Every human being on every developed nation on Earth, whether living in a rural or isolated area, in the middle of a large city, or near an industrialized area, now contains at least 700 contaminants in their body including pesticides, pthalates, benzenes, parabens, xylenes and many other carcinogenic and endrocrine disrupting chemicals.

We are being bombarded on a daily basis by an astronomical level of toxicity, all controlled by chemical terrorists on behalf of the food industry. Morever, many of these toxins affect our fertility and those of successive generations.

It’s time for people to know exactly what they are putting in their bodies and technology is coming to the rescue. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign researchers have developed a cradle and app that uses a phone’s built-in camera and processing power as a biosensor to detect toxins, proteins, bacteria, viruses and other molecules.

Are GMOs Good or Bad?

It’s time to put an end to the debate over the safety of GMO crops and foods.  Today nearly all of our beer, wine, cheese, and yogurt are made with GM yeast and cultures.  Most of our livestock are fed genetically modified corn and soybeans.  And most of our prepared foods contain GM ingredients.

Here is a simple solution - people who want to believe there is something sinister or unhealthy about GM plants should either buy food that is labeled non-GMO or pay more for so-called “organic” food.  The rest of us, who embrace science, can get on with healthy and productive lives.

anonymous asked:

there was a study in europe somewhere of rats eating a pure gmo diet or something close to it and the females developed horrible tumours and the males developed terrible liver problems

As I said, I know what I’m talking about.

That study was debunked universally by the Scientific Community and was retracted out of publication:

Study Linking Genetically Modified Corn to Rat Tumors Is Retracted

The issues with it are as follows:

[…] the small number and type of animals used in the study mean that “no definitive conclusions can be reached.” The known high incidence of tumors in the Sprague–Dawley strain of rat ”cannot be excluded as the cause of the higher mortality and incidence observed in the treated groups,” it added.

Its bad science, period. And it is an outlier. There have been hundreds if not thousands of studies performed. If this result came up often it would be a concern. It doesn’t.

And if you need further convincing, read this PDF which contains 10 major scientific organizations which see no danger in GMO. Some notable names are The World Health Organization, The Royal Society of Medicine and The American Medical Association.

GMOs Part I:  GMOs BELONG IN THE PESTICIDE ISLE

They are patented as a pesticide not a food product.

He Holds the Patent that Could Destroy Monsanto and Change the World
If there's anything you read – or share – let this be it. The content of this article has potential to radically shift the world in a variety of positive ways. And as Monsanto would love for this article to not go viral, all we can ask is that you share, share, share the information be

***SHARE THIS ARTICLE FAR & WIDE TO GET THE WORD OUT ABOUT THIS REVOLUTIONARY PATENT. ***

In 2006, a patent was granted to a man named Paul Stamets. Though Paul is the world’s leading mycologist, his patent has received very little attention and exposure.

The mycologist has figured out how to use mother nature’s own creations to keep insects from destroying crops. It’s what is being called SMART pesticides. These pesticides provide safe & nearly permanent solution for controlling over 200,000 species of insects - and all thanks to the ‘magic’ of mushrooms.

Monsanto’s chemical concoctions which are being sprayed all over farmers’ fields around the world are attributed to the large-scale bee die off. To say that  new methods  need to be implemented before it is too late is an understatement.  

Monsanto presently generates $16 billion dollars per year (as reported in 2014), therefore you can be certain they do not want anything interrupting that flow of revenue. Such income gives them nearly limitless resources and abilities to suppress information that may be damaging their reputation.

DARK stands for Deny Americans the Right to Know, but the official name for the bill is The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015. Its passage means that you can buy something that says “natural” when it’s really the opposite, and Congress is okay with that. Now trying to eat healthy has become even more difficult. I don’t know if you guys realize how big this is, but it changes a lot. It also says a lot about this country.
