Environmental and human health concerns; insect and weed resistance; and loss of biodiversity caused by GMO agricultural technologies have all become so severe that a group of 22 corn entomologists who would normally support GM corn recently sent a letter to the U.S.Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) warning that one solution to this escalating problem is to begin planting non-GMO crops (http://foodfreedomgroup.com/2012/03/12/bug-docs-urge-epa-non-gmo-corn/).
Environmental Consequences of Contamination with Transgenic DNA and its Herbicides
A study published in 2011 in the journal “Reproductive Toxicology” found Bt toxin in most pregnant women and their fetuses, as well as in non-pregnant women.
In 2007, F. William Engdahl wrote an important book on the topic called “Seeds of Destruction: The Hidden Agenda of Genetic Manipulation.” He explained how Washington and four agribusiness giants plan world domination by patenting all life forms to control food production globally – everything, crops and animals.
In 2003, Jeffrey Smith’s “Seeds of Deception” explained the dangers of untested and unregulated GM foods exposing those who eat them to potential health risks. Reliable studies show that rats fed GM potatoes had smaller livers, hearts, testicles, brains, damaged immune systems, and showed structural changes in their white blood cells making them more susceptible to infection and disease than other rats fed non-GM potatoes. They also had thymus and spleen damage, enlarged tissues, including the pancreas and intestines, liver atrophy, and other serious problems.
