Default Genetically Modified Organisms cause cancer

There have been wranglings in the courts in the US recently over labelling of foods with the corporate network not wishing to put on their products whether or not they contain GMO's

This then robs consumers of their free will choice over whether or not to expose themselves to GMO's

At the forefront of the push for GMO technology is Monsanto who have used their lobby power to get the government to pass laws that prevent farmers from using their own seed. Now all new seed must be bought through monsanto

Monsanto has genetically modified crops so that they will not be destroyed by monsantos other carcinogenic product 'roundup' spray

Independent tests have found GMO's to cause cancer for example the tumours on these lab rats:



This is all part of a move by the corporate network to take complete control over food production because if you control a nations food then you control that nation (see also 'codex alimentarius')

The following is a link to an article by a former GMO scientist who is now blowing the whistle on the dangers of GMO's

The rats in the now thoroughly debunked Seralini study would have grown those tumors no matter what they were fed.

No, it doesn't. Labeling is voluntary, you have the choice of shopping at Whole Foods, Trader Joe's or whatever your overpriced local hippie food snob grocery store is for produce labeled 'Non-GMO'. It makes no sense to label GMO food, GMO isn't an ingredient, and there are no proven or credible health risks associated with GMO food currently on the market.

"In May 2016, the Joint FAO/WHO Meeting on Pesticide Residues concluded that 'glyphosate is unlikely to pose a carcinogenic risk to humans from exposure through the diet', even at doses as high as 2,000 mg/kg body weight orally."

Even if it was from 5 years ago I would have still responded. This type of bafoonery must be called out, no stone left unturned.

Well done.

Also for consideration:

Generally speaking if something makes you sick, stop eating it, most people can eat coriander but it is literally poison to me and yet it's still sold in supermarkets everywhere.

There's this perception that being "natural" somehow makes things better, which is wrong, those poisons that occur naturally in plants are an evolved defense mechanism. Although making a new breed of corn with a coriander gene that makes it more pest resistant might prevent me from eating that brand of corn, I would be the exception. Or that brand of corn would gain a reputation for making people sick and so people stop buying and thus the unnatural selection of market forces makes that corn extinct.
