Scientific studies conclude GMO feed causes organ disruption in animals

Wednesday, October 05, 2011 by: Jeffrey M. Smith – Natural News (NaturalNews) A new paper reviewing data from 19 animal studies shows that consuming genetically modified (GM) corn or soybeans leads to significant organ disruptions in rats and mice, particularly in livers and kidneys (http://www.enveurope.com/content/23/1/10). “Other organs may be affected too, such as the heart and spleen, or blood cells,” stated the paper. In fact some of the animals fed genetically modified organisms had altered body weights, which is “a very good predictor of side effects in various organs.” The GM soybean and corn varieties used in the feeding trials […]


The European Court of Justice has decided: Bees or GMOs?

Wednesday 07 September 2011 on Bee Life The European Court of Justice today provided its judgement: Beekeeping products contaminated with pollen derived from GM crops are considered “products derived from GMOs” We now face a profound dilemma: Do we just automatically accept that all honey and pollen is now contaminated with GM products? Or do we demand legislation which orders that safe distances or quarantine zones must be imposed to protect bees and apiaries from toxic GM crops? In 2005, the honey of an amateur beekeeper, Mr Bablok, from the German region of Bavaria, was found to be contaminated with […]


Response to “Some truth about GMO” by Mr. Wilmot Simmons

— 04 November 2011 — by Naud Brouwer Dear Editor, The use of BT in organic farming is a fact; the thing is that organic farmers have used BT as a pesticide, sprayed on their crops so the UV light from the sun can break it down, and the rain could wash the BT off before any product would be harvested. Another interesting thing is that the BT used by organic farmers for over 50 years is a weakened or almost dead bacteria. This is only sprayed in case of high insect infestation and only onto the affected area. The […]


Why object to GMOs

These companies were able to patent life forms (think about just how ridiculous that sounds) such as seeds and plants because of gene modification. A seed patent means the right to exclude anyone from making, using, saving or developing the patented product. If it is a machine, it doesn’t matter; if its is an airplane, it doesn’t matter, because Boeing makes airplane that a local farmer doesn’t know how to make. But in terms of seeds, when a companies like Monsanto has the patent right to it, A FARMER SAVING SEEDS IS TREATED LIKE A THIEF – an intellectual property […]
