Global Impacts
Health Effects
The World According to Monsanto
Genetically engineered plants/animals
Increase yield/resist herbicides
Race to feed the world
Takeover of our diets
GMOs
Possible Health Risks
Background Information and Clip
Basics of
have been studied numerous times.
Environmental Risks
World Standpoint
Labeling
Canada and the US stand alone.
“Scientists […] have genetically engineered rice to provide resistance to a virus that is a major problem in the tropics.”
“The [FDA] does not require foods containing genetically engineered ingredients to be labeled because it considers them ‘functionally equivalent’ to conventionally grown crops.”
Pesticides and herbicides leave toxic legacies.
Biodiversity
Controversy
Manipulation of government and FDA
Falsified reports
PCBs
“We all have PCBs in our bodies, the polar bears and the penguins have PCBs, and what has happened is that in the past there were a few sites where PCBs where released, but over time they have gone into the air, they've gone into the water, they've transported so that the whole world is now contaminated with PCBs. The issue is that *many* diseases are caused by PCB exposure; the one everyone knows about is cancer.”
Monsanto and Farmers
“They want control. […] They are in the process of controlling life.”
Patents on gene insertion.
Over 100 lawsuits against farmers.
Monsanto in India
Took control of the cotton market.
Caused numerous suicides.
GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO CHANGE THE WORLD.
GMO by Travis Booth

The invisible hand commands you consume the contraband.
Those impossible to reprimand due to a politician's head in the sand.
Blinded by a few grand which pays for them to get tanned.
Goods grown on land once manned by the family forced to disband,
all according to plans. Make the goods canned, add grams of
preservatives and untested strands. Secondhand supplements
and excessive trans-fats. Marketing will ensure demand of bland
goods, which remain banned in foreign lands.

They'll tend to blame the long nights,
while judging those on ice,
instead of the agricultural device.
Wherein lies the problem of culled sight.

Disregard the carcinogens
The coughing was clearly from the simpleton's
inability to cut the cannabis
while touring between cradle and coffin.

Germs mutate often, generally manifesting occipital gallows.
Malevolent organizations gain mass ordinance,
generating more orphans globally.
Malnourished occupants' gullible, misled orison goes mostly omitted.
Greed manipulates overseers' gluttonous minds over gleaming minerals, ores.
"GIMME MORE OPULENCE!"
“We are talking very dirty tricks here. There's no ethics at all in what's going on here. It shows an organization that is determined to push its products into countries around the world. And it's determined to destroy the reputation of anybody who stands in their way.”
“The gene itself, the insertion method, the promoter that turn the gene on and the marker used to detect whether the gene is present.”
“Food industry ads claimed that the initiative would raise food prices. Labels would mislead consumers into thinking that products that contain genetically engineered ingredients are ‘somehow different, unsafe or unhealthy.’”
