GMO Foods Bad for US?

Machine HeadMachine Head Posts: 2,634 Officer
Here is a awesome video explaining GMO foods. It explains how many of todays disease processes are attributed to GMO products. Allergies, cancer, autism, gastrointestinal diseases, diabetes, infertility and many more diseases have been linked to GMO products. Doctors and nutritionists are prescribing GMO free diets for people effected by these diseases.



GMO foods are nutritionally deficient and contain glycophosphate with is the main ingredient in Roundup. When GMO corn is fed to cattle they produce nutritionally deficient meat and dairy products that is passed up the food chain to us. Over time cattle become weak, infertile and have miscarriages. Did you know the number of infertility clinics in America has increased by 14 times over the last decade? Infertility has become widespread problem here in the U.S.



Dozens of European countries and other countries around the world have totally banned GMO products. They are burning entire fields of GMO crops after studies showed GMO products are dangerous. There have been world wide protests with millions of people voicing concerns against GMO products that the media refuses to report. There have been many attempts to force food suppliers to label GMO products here in America. These attempts have failed because of either vote fraud and negative campaign efforts from Monsanto's companies telling people the cost of food will increase if foods are labeled.



The FDA and Monsanto are in bed together. Lawyers from Monsanto have moved into positions within the FDA and also the Supreme court. Clarence Thomas was once a lawyer for Monsanto and now holds a seat on the Supreme court and has ruled in Monsanto's favor with every GMO case that has come before him. Michael Taylor worked also worked as a lawyer for Monsanto for a decade before being appointed as the FDA Food Safety Czar.



The cards are stacked against us but we can fight back. Educate yourselves, carry a list of GMO companies with you when you grocery shop and avoid them. Search the web for these lists, there are many of them out there. There are apps out for your smart phones that allow you to take a picture of the bar codes on products and it will tell you if it contains GMO products. Stay away from processed and frozen foods. Look for organic alternatives. Kroger has a brand called Simply Green that is organic, this includes meat and dairy choices. I think Whole Foods and Trader Joes store provide only organic products.



I hope this is informative and please pass it on to your friends and family.

    Guys like Rusty, TTT, and hooknline have the ability to sidestep this BS, as they can plant their own crops using untainted seed, and raise grass-fed cattle and free range poultry for their personal consumption.

    I have seen zero evidence that gmo food is bad. Even the best Cyclist could come up with was it's bad for the environment because it cross pollinated with what he feels is "natural" corn...
    I was eating grapes and bananas this am both of which are "seedless" and unable to reproduce... Do you guys not eat them or find seeded grapes and non cloned bananas.? Where do you find this organic natural food? Where do you get natural seed? :yawn

    Tater, there are plenty of places to find heirloom seeds. But first you have to open your eyes, your mind ...... :yawn

    Bless your heart... You think those are natural seeds? Heel it says in the link they are inspected and sorted. But hey if you want to think those are naturally like that with human selection and such that's fine...
    I see none of your links show any evidence of danger from gmo or hybrid seeds...

    Trying to compare taking cuttings from a grapevine and rooting them to propagate a particular variety of grape that appeared as a "sport" or random mutation in an orchard to inserting genes from completely different organisms or wholly fabricated genes into the DNA of our food products merely demonstrates your ignorance.

    Is the OP science? Hell no. Is there evidence that GMOs are currently harming human health? Not that I know of. Should we proceed into uncharted territory with an abundance of caution? Absolutely.

    I love how you constantly try to compare hybrids and GMO - are you really that ignorant of genetics or are you trying to push an agenda?

    Ha ha.. There are only 4 things that make up DNA... Gene sharing happens all the time. Selecting genes is more precise. Is it bad? Show how or **** about calling ignorance.. How can s Sterile grape reproduce? Ain't know way that's any more natural than anything else. Your interest in sparing with me overrides any ability to make connections. Whether a gene is made from a random event and propagated through selective breeding vs inserting with a virus or other splicing techniques doesn't matter.. The gene and it's presentation and effects are what matter... And that you agree with.. Silly fella.
    And I don't condone doing any of it without extreme care and caution and over sight.

    The result is modified genes that aren't naturally in a species. Your "point" is where that sequence comes from and how it gets there is ignorant. Is the result good or bad or indifferent is all that matters.

    Oh really. Please explain how genes that aren't naturally in a species occur during hybridization - since we are discussing food feel free to use corn as an example.

    Tater as usual resorts to name calling as soon as possible - it helps distract from the topic at hand.

    Tater - you're an heirloom ignoramus.

    GMO and biotech are todays version of intel and apple in 1980. Its going to change the world.

    Wouldn't common sense dictate that infusing "round up" herbicide into your seeds that you grow your crops from probably isn't the picture of healthy? I don't get how someone so blatantly against race mixing can be so pro-GMO when it comes to mixing genes at the the food level. Kind of ironic.

    I would rather my tomatoes not contain genes from the rabies virus and my rice not have human liver genes, but that's just me.

    Interesting thing is where did they get that roundup gene from.....

    Quote from an FDA scientist:

    ...and with that being said, Tater blindly trusts the govt to tell him what's good and bad for him and his family....

    He's a closet Obama lover. Knew it all along.

    Tater - when I get sitchee-ated I'm gonna plant a garden with a variety of heirloom seeds, and invite you over for some 'mater pie. Sound GOOT?

    I like the taste of my gmo corn fed beef. I buy my veggies from the local farm so they may or may not be gmo. I think this gmo junk is just another over hyped racket started by some tree hugger group. What you all don't realize is if weren't for round up ready products most of you couldn't afford To eat beef, or veggies. The dang weeds would use up all the avalable nutrients in the soils meant for the veggies.

    Just something to think about
    If I say something that offends you, please let me know so I can say it again later

    Please explain how to "infuse Round Up herbicide into your seeds"....

    :Popcorn

    btw, a lot of the dietary habits that produce the side effects you are talking about has nothing to do with healthy eating, now does it?

    If you eat mostly processed foods (which is where most GMO stuff is) then you're already at risk for heart desease, diabetes, allergies, toomas, etc...

    Professor orchid, shouldn't you know this?

    I believe they splice and insert the gene for Bacillus thuringiensis.

    Round up ready crops were not introduced until 1996 with beans and took a few years to become prevalent - some how we managed to feed ourselves before then.

    You guys need to do some reading. Round up ready does not equal BT - two totally different things. BT is effective against caterpillars of all sorts - round up ready prevents damage from the herbicide glyphosate.

    Was I professing the be the "science" behind the **** they do to our food? Nope, but we can all break out the Toogle. Yes, after a quick search, I agree with what you are saying. Now enjoy the toogled efforts I put forth with this study I turned up. In before Tater finds someone Mansanto has bribed to refute it:
