Creating Waves of Awareness
The United States produces food for export that have not been thoroughly tested for safety by the manufacturing, medical, scientific and governmental agencies. Within the borders of America the people revolt and are revolted by the information coming into the public eye. Review the number of pages and independent organizations that explain the disintegration of health, the increase in cancers for young, old and all genders, rare cancers, auto immune diseases and increases in diabetes plus obesity. Too many officials throw up their hands unable to explain these statistics. As if saying, "It's not my fault. How could we know this would happen?" Or, they outright pass the buck and deny the problem, with comments such as, "This amount is within reasonable limits that cannot effect humans." They may even go so far as to continue the old refrain that they are feeding the poor and those in need across the world, and that their seeds produce heartier, more productive crops.
Who Can You Believe
French researchers secretly studied, for two years, 200 rats fed with transgenic maize. Take a look at the results. Never mind the inhumanity of treating animals in this way. We see the same results in humans who consume these products, but can now give an explanation. The French and other consumers around the world have a right to ask for a moratorium. US citizens have a right to know through labeling what they are purchasing, putting on the table and feeding their children.
No Time To Waste
We have left a hole in our system. Sure, it will be difficult to say, "Stop the slaughter!" Sure, we may not have enough to feed the livestock, the gas tanks, and fill the store shelves. Can we transition over slowly or must this be a major turn around? Put the breaks on when you are about to slam into a brick wall. We must demand our government to stop the criminal behavior of industry feeding the populations poison.

Pay close attention to what you are about to see. Transgenic fed rats throughout their lifetime. Financial and technical benefits to witness the 2-year study. Finding the GMO truth. HEalth crisis of global proportions as a result of the outcome.
Joint study with Round Up. Spent a year to obtain the transgenic corn. The seeds must not be used for testing. This was an independent study for the length of 2-years, rather than simply 90 days.
maximum of biochemical and biological parameters. Blood tests, weighing specimens and urine test and hormonal parameters. World premier. Up until this French study, the corn NK603 only had a 3-month period study under the auspices of the manufacturer Monsanto. Obviously, we can't possibly obtain unprejudiced data from a company testing their own products.
Concerning Round Up by Monsanto. Only the active agent had been accessed. They use additives that are sometimes more harmful than the active agent that are injected into the product. First, use international requirements and determine the certainty effect. First, carry out the tests on animals and then examine the organs.
What are GMO used for?
A plant developed to develop its own insecticide or to be tolerant to an insecticide without dying. It can be useful to farmers to spray the entire field with insecticide without killing the crops in the field. On the other hand,
This type of study with find the benefits for the consumer who eats the foods that have absorbed the GMO and the GMO plus the residue. The corporations have never done this type of investigation showing the results of tests from BOTH GMO plus insecticides together on test animals. They had only done studies on one or the other, singly.
Unethical, Unconstitutional, Unscientific Reads The Sign Above
Are we dealing with effects of GMO or the pesticide. Researchers and manufacturers have always told the consumers that the foods did not harbor effects from pesticides, because by the time the foods arrived at the stores and into our homes the pesticides effects had worn off or been washed off. However, we all know that we still must wash our fruits and vegetables before eating. But, what about pesticides that get absorbed into the foods? What about the pesticides that wash into the soil and become reabsorbed by the plant through the root system into the plant tissue?
Do you think that the producer of a product should determine the method, duration and number of specimens for testing? The story of the fox guarding the hen house epitomizes what's happening in the industry. An examples given in the short film depict the inadequacy of testing, on too few subjects, without thorough sampling of blood and tissue lines, and a totally insufficient time scale, considering that both animals bred and raised for consumption intake grains longer than 3 months, and humans eat these foods for a lifetime.
Charts depicting the results of their independent tests show that groups of rats have a dramatic increase in mortality rates when fed GMO corn. That with GMO alone, or with GMO and Round Up also show increase in mortality, especially compared with rats not fed GMO and/or Round Up. Six times more deaths compared to control group.
Interestingly, only at the fourth month do the effects show up clearly. Thus, the 3-month period of testing by Monsanto was totally unacceptable. Where is the FDA and EPA?
Every rat was dissected to discover the organ affects of the diets had acted on the metabolism and development rate of tumors. The charts show the difference between male and female rats to the tests, with males being more resistant to effects of GMO than females. Ninety percent of the tumors were found in the glands of the rats, which they say equates to the breasts in the woman, while males ended up with renal tumors (kidneys). Sixty percent of breast cancer tumors are caused by hormonal deficiencies. We can make a relationship between the effect of GMO and Pesticides upon the hormonal organs and glands of the body.
The researchers concluded that the transgenesis itself could have killed the rats. If you are wondering about this process, transgenesis occurs when scientists insert a gene from one source, like a plant or animal species outside the normal range and implant this gene into another species. Another method that transfers genes from one species into the same species we call cisgenesis. The other way GMO may be created or altering existing genes occurs by knocking out genes from its normal location in the DNA chain.
Note that all transgenic gene material must be isolated, amplified through a cloning process and then added to the vector location in a specific location in the amino acid protein chain of the DNA. These techniques take many years and incredible financial backing to create.
There are many examples of transgenic microorganisms that are used in a variety of applications. Certain bacteria are genetically engineered to produce insulin for the treatment of human diabetes. Other bacteria are engineered for the production of blood proteins to aid clotting for the treatment of hemophilia. In agriculture, some transgenic microbes are used to stimulate better crop growth, and to produce toxic chemicals that inhibit the proliferation of certain crop pests.
Genetically modified organism research is often considered controversial for a number of reasons. Ethical issues aside, the creation of genetically modified organisms, and their introduction into the environment, can have unforeseen impacts. The growth of genetically modified crops in agriculture may lead to the spread of such genetically modified organisms into the wider environment, as it is difficult to completely isolate organisms in outdoor fields. Pollen from a genetically modified crop can, for example, easily cross wide-open spaces, and potentially cause the genetically modified plants being grown to be crossed with an existing species in a neighboring field.
By interfering with genome of plant to modify the characteristics have results that were not expected. Cellular studies of Round up showed toxic effects in the liver, embryos, and kidneys showed toxic effect on organism. Increase in death due to GMO and Roundup. GMO badly assimilated by plant, secondary metabolic effect. GMO or cereal corn can result in effects.
What is alarming is that Americans eat these corns, plus they are exported to European countries, especially corn and potato and soya for cattle feed and food. Because Europeans provide more concern, caution and safety for their citizens, they feel this situation too serious to let slide by and continue. They call for a moratorium on importation of Monsanto GMO and Roundup ready products, crops and supplies.
More Detailed Studies Needed
This is a risk we cannot afford to take. In my mind, it has already gone too far. We already see the results of mortality and poor health conditions in a majority of Americans.
PDF File | ABSTRACT
The health effects of a Roundup-tolerant genetically modiﬁed maize (from 11% in the diet), cultivated
with or without Roundup, and Roundup alone (from 0.1 ppb in water), were studied 2 years in rats. In females, all treated groups died 2–3 times more than controls, and more rapidly. This difference was visible in 3 male groups fed GMOs. All results were hormone and sex dependent, and the pathological pro-
ﬁles were comparable. Females developed large mammary tumors almost always more often than and before controls, the pituitary was the second most disabled organ; the sex hormonal balance was modiﬁed by GMO and Roundup treatments. In treated males, liver congestions and necrosis were 2.5–5.5 times higher. This pathology was conﬁrmed by optic and transmission electron microscopy. Marked and severe kidney nephropathies were also generally 1.3–2.3 greater. Males presented 4 times more large palpable tumors than controls which occurred up to 600 days earlier. Biochemistry data conﬁrmed very signiﬁcant kidney chronic deﬁciencies; for all treatments and both sexes, 76% of the altered parameters were kidney related. These results can be explained by the non linear endocrine-disrupting effects of Roundup, but also by the over expression of the transgene in the GMO and its metabolic consequences.
