In 1996, under the Clinton administration, GMO crops were introduced, without the public's knowledge and consent. Food was not labeled accordingly, and despite the government continuing to overreach and steal our liberties on a daily basis, the government is experimenting on us and still does not require proper labeling. Why?
Because the progressive left is implementing the ninth plank of marxism to control the food supply. They know that when they control the food supply, they control the people.
The leftists know exactly what they are doing. Everything else is labeled. The FDA recently even went after Cheerios because it makes health claims. The FDA did not dispute these claims, but merely claimed the claims weren't authorized. So, why is the FDA looking for us to obtain Cheerios by a prescription, but not require labeling for fake food? Shouldn't GMOs be the ones with the warning labels?
In August, I blogged about the genetically modified salmon in which it was declared that the fake salmon was safe to eat, which is of course not being required to be labeled as GMO salmon. However, this week a news report revealed that it was tested on a mere 6 fish to determine it was safe. I am not a scientist, but that doesn't seem like a sufficient sample size to me or a lengthy study, to truly determine if it is safe for humans.
The animal kingdom, is apparently of higher intelligence than the leftists, and instinctively knows it is not good for them. Pigs which would normally eat any slop actually rejected GMO food. Furthermore, if rats rejected it and needed to be force fed GMO food, shouldn't that be a warning sign for humans? If the GMO altered the DNA of lab rats, should humans really be eating it? The evidence so far would be overwhelmingly no.
"In the 9 years after GM crops were introduced in 1996, Americans with three or more chronic diseases jumped from 7% to 13%.² Allergies doubled in less time. And the incidence of low birth weight babies, infertility, and infant mortality are all escalating. But without any human clinical trials or post marketing surveillance, we may never know if these or other disorders like autism, obesity, and diabetes, are triggered or made worse by GMOs. We don't need to wait for more research to learn our lesson from the animals and the doctors."If the pigs rejected the GMO corn, think about all the products you buy that contain corn oil, corn starch, corn syrup, etc., or any animal that may have been force fed corn. Think about this when you walk down the produce aisle too. Food that you may consider to be "natural" is not necessarily so.
But the leftists proceed with their plan. They are focusing on outlawing organic food and pushing GMO's on us. The Food Modernization Act of 2009 addresses such items as:
- genetically engineered food, animals, seeds, etc.
- attacks organic farming and promotes pesticides
- promotes genetically engineered animals as better for us to eat
Is it safe to eat plant food from the GMO seeds? Will the pesticides used be within the food itself?
When the FDA argues in court no one has the right to choose what they consume or drink or when the FDA raids an Amish farm, it is clearly a desperate cry to control our food supply. This is also evident when a man from Georgia was fined $5000 this week for growing too much food on his own property. Why shouldn't any American be allowed to grow their own food on their own property? And why should the government be able to restrict anyone or fine anyone for doing so?
The next time you go food shopping, take a good look at what you are buying. Think about it. Unless every ingredient is marked organic, then you are consuming GMOs. The government has made Americans it's own lab rats for experimentation without our consent. Are the GMOs genetically altering your DNA?
