    Russia suspends import and use of American GM corn after study revealed cancer risk

    Russia suspends import and use of American GM corn after study revealed cancer risk
    The European Food Safety Authority orders review in to the research, conducted at a French university
    Russia's decision could be followed by other nations
    Experts at the University of Caen conducted an experiment running for the full lives of rats - two years
    The findings found raised levels of breast cancer, liver and kidney damage
    The same trials also found minuscule amounts of a commonly used weedkiller, Roundup
    Both the GM corn and Roundup are the creation of US biotech company Monsanto

    Revealed: Monsanto GM corn caused tumors in rats

    French scientists have revealed that rats fed on GMO corn sold by American firm Monsanto, suffered tumors and other complications including kidney and liver damage. When testing the firm’s top brand weed killer the rats showed similar symptoms.

    The French government has asked its health and safety agency to assess the study and had also sent it to the European Union's food safety agency, Reuters reports.

    "Based on the conclusion…, the government will ask the European authorities to take all necessary measures to protect human and animal health, measures that could go as far as an emergency suspension of imports of NK603 maize in the European Union," the French health, environment and farm ministries said in a joint statement.

    Researchers from the University of Caen found that rats fed on a diet containing NK603 – a seed variety made tolerant to amounts of Monsanto's Roundup weedkiller – or given water mixed with the product, at levels permitted in the United States – died earlier than those on a standard diet.

    More chemicals in the mix, this time as plant uptake, as Monsanto's GM cornis now Roundup resistant and channels another poison into the human food chain.
    Since maize is the principal food crop that's GM modified and is used in preparing thousands of different processed food products, how long is it going to be before the effects are going to be found in humans?

    Glad to see that both Russia and France are blowing the whistle on the stuff.

    I tried to buy organic non-GM alfalfa seeds this week, and couldn't find any!
    Alfalfa, usually grown by farmers under the name of lucerne, in some countries remains an important food crop for cattle and sheep.

    So we have tomatoes modified with frog genes (or is it fish?) and soy, canola, rape seed, rice, plums, papaya, and cotton are GM products now, so much of our cooking oils and margarine is made of these crops.

    A few years ago, GM potatoes were refused as food on global markets.

    All this GM food business doesn't go to meeting popular demand, rather it goes to feeding the profits of city and office based farmers, all businessmen, not one bit farmers themselves as farms are taken over by profit making companies in the interests of big business and profits for shareholders rather than the biological needs of humanity.

    Roundup, a Monsanto (Big Pharma/ Chemical industry) product needs to be looked at.
    About 20years ago the stuff was touted as perfectly safe for spraying on yourvege garden, now it's being fingered as a cumulative poison, one of many surreptitiously foisted on an unsuspecting public as part of their diet.
    “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I said, you are gods’? John 10:34.

    Roundup is also another fluoride based organophosphate, a cumulative poison as fluorine is released into the body after consuming Roundup tainted foods, especially in maize, cooking oil and margarine.

    We are already seeing the results. GMO's have been in the food supply for nearly 50 years already. The incidence of cancers has been going up steadily over the past 50 years as well. Today it is about 1 in 2 will get a cancer. When I was young it was 1 in 4.
    It shouldn't take a rocket scientist to figure all this processed shit is very bad for you.

    The greedy CEO's of Monsanto should be bbq'd for their crimes against humanity.

    Human development is a process of trial and error and GM foods are at an early stage.
    How else do you propose to feed a burgeoning world population?

    How about prioritizing food over fuel. The world is near its end after all, isn't it?

    This question went unanswered when present to the UN during a seminar in Thailand in 2009. Can you answer it?

    Big gov never will answer that question.
    The issue for them is controling the food supply, hence controlling the population.
    The only real solution is for people to take control of thier food on a community level.
