Opponents of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) have claimed victory after Mexico’s Supreme Court blocked last week a move that would allow the cultivation of GMO soy in the Mexican states of Campeche and Yucatan. In a separate appeals court decision, a federal judge upheld a 2013 ruling that barred companies such as Monsanto and DuPont/Pioneer from planting or selling their GMO corn within the country’s borders.

NEW PEER-REVIEWED STUDY: Glufosinate Ammonium (GLA), the herbicide sprayed on Bayer’s herbicide tolerant Liberty Link GMO crops, has been found to induce austism-like symptoms in mice after their mothers were exposed to low doses – both pre and post-natal. The study raises fundamental concerns about the ability of current safety testing to assess risks of pesticide exposure during critical developmental periods. Another toxic herbicide in your GMO food.

A peer review study must pass rigorous standards. Multiple peer review studies show harmful impacts of GMOs to rats, amphibians, hams, cows and other animals. This includes such maladies as death by GMO, infertility, sterility, cancer, deformed genitals, and much, much more. The corporate propaganda machine known as the corporate media doesn’t want you to know about this stuff. They insist these studies are under dispute. They are under dispute, but only by GMO corporations. That’s something they won’t tell you.

In the meantime, the GMO corporate controlled USDA has decided not to take the health and safety of the American people into consideration when approving GMOs. The USDA “has approved for the 2015 growing season Roundup tolerant, Bt toxic pesticide producing GMO soy. The latest agrichemical innovation to grace your dinner plate without your knowledge or consent. Approved by the USDA in 2014, this new variety of soy joins two other crops which are also EPA registered pesticides that kill insects – Bt toxic insecticide producing corn & cotton (for cottonseed oil) are already an integral part of our food supply. HERBICIDE ON THE SOY. INSECTICIDE IN THE SOY. What a delightful gourmet treat!” From GMO Free USA

When an insect bites into a plant that is filled with the Bt toxin, its intestines begin to swell until it explodes. In one study, the uterus of 93 percent of women tested were loaded with the Bt toxin. Notice the corporate press is not reporting this. Instead, the corporate press is calling for a congressional vote to eliminate (suppress) your right to vote on state and county levels to label foods with GMO poisons in them.

Your government and the corporate press are corrupted to the core by big money. That’s why the USDA is approving this poison for your consumption, and that’s why they don’t want you to know about it.

According to one study, the obesity epidemic in the United States began in 1996, the same year GMOs entered the US food chain and in a big way. Pop companies such as Coke and Pepsi were among the first at putting the GMO poison in their products in the form of corn fructose sugar. Most corn grown in the USA are GMOs. Coincidence? Not likely.

My girlfriend and I went on a diet of organic food and quickly discovered that we eat less than when we eat GMO tainted foods. I quickly lost twenty pounds despite eating hefty amounts of organic chocolate bars and other organic foods. My skinny girlfriend also lost weight.

My girlfriend and I noticed that friends are hungry after eating GMO tainted foods, often within minutes, but when they come to eat organic foods at our home, they eat little food and are stuffed for hours.

I also lost my allergies to a cat named Sabina, carpet dust, and housework.

We had video games in the eighties and nineties, and lots of things where we sat and did nothing, like play board games, so that’s not why people are obese today. I drank Coke and Pepsi in fairly hefty amounts when I was younger, and I never gained weight. Neither did any of my friends.

But now, Coke and Pepsi products are considered major culprits in the obesity epidemic, even though those companies have been producing their products for well over a hundred years, and the epidemic has only existed for less than twenty years. Of course, corn fructose sugar could be the culprit because most (if not all) of that’s made from GMO corn.

GM foods were first put on the market in the early 1990s. Typically, genetically modified foods are transgenic plant products: soybean, corn, canola, and cotton seed oil. These are items that are used in numerous kinds of processed foods, from ketchup and mustard to tortilla chips and TV dinners.

“If GM foods are contributing to the rise of autism, obesity, diabetes, asthma, cancer, heart disease, allergies, reproductive problems, or any other common health problem now plaguing Americans (and there are plenty of independent peer reviewed studies showing this), we may never know. In fact, since animals fed GMOs had such a wide variety of problems, susceptible people may react to GM food with multiple symptoms. It is therefore telling that in the first nine years after the large scale introduction of GM crops in 1996, the incidence of people with three or more chronic diseases nearly doubled, from 7% to 13%. -Food Matters 2009”
