“Monsanto has been making the claim for years that genetically modified foods are equivalent or even of higher quality than non-GMOs, but nothing could be further from the truth.” …
Political Update: GMO’s, Corn, Dow AgroSciences … And Monsanto
New Study Finds Monsanto’s Genetically Modified Corn Is Nutritionally Dead & Possibly Highly Toxic!
Well, sooner or later we were going to have to get into this. The time is now, and Tips About Healthy Living isn’t going to shy away from it.
You’ve probably been hearing about Genetically Modified Organisms for a while now. Recently, you’ve heard a lot about GM corn from companies like Monsanto and Dow. There has been a string of announcements as the use of GM corn and other agricultural seeds has been banned by one country after another. China, Ireland, Austria, Ecuador, Greece, Luxembourg, France, Madeira, Switzerland, New Zealand are just some of the nations that have completely banned GMO crops. Hungary has not only recently banned all GMO crops, but they just destroyed thousands of acres of crops already planted and growing. Russia had been importing GM Corn seed, but has currently suspended all imports in light of a French study which links GM crops to cancer.
Monsanto’s GM corn is the big item receiving the most publicity. However, Dow AgroSciences is rolling out their “Enlist” products: Enlist Corn, Enlist Soybeans, Enlist Cotton … and these are “the beginning” according to Dow (the wonderful folks who gave us “Agent Orange” and “RoundUp”).
In some areas, the use of GM seeds has been tried with disastrous results. In Thailand, GM papaya seed was tried, but the seeds “got loose” and contaminated non-GMO crops all over the country. GMO’s have since been banned there after heavy crop losses were incurred. In India, the results were even more tragic. Farmers there were urged to plant Monsanto’s GM Cotton. What followed were massive crop failures and the reported suicide of over 125,000 farmers who simply lost everything.
We’re going to do two things here. The first is to direct you to a great article by Mike Barrett of the Natural Society. Guess what, guys? Now recent studies have been revealed that show that non-GMO corn is 20 times richer in nutrition than GMO corn … and it produces more energy and protein than modified corn. The second thing we’re going to do here will come after the jump.
In fact, a 2012 nutritional analysis of genetically modified corn found that not only is GM corn lacking in vitamins and nutrients when compared to non-GM corn, but the genetic creation also poses numerous health risks due to extreme toxicity.
