In a span of 16 years, Monsanto -- best known for being the chemical company responsible for Agent Orange and Roundup -- has taken over the food supply of Americans (and much of the rest of the world). With no oversight by the FDA or any other regulatory agency, the company has pumped our food full of carcinogens. As much as 70 percent of the food in your average grocery store is GMO and full of poison. Is it any wonder that our food is making us sicker and not giving us the nutrients we need? How do you feel about feeding your family this kind of food?
The author has done a great job showing why assurances that GMO crops are safe are empty promises. The truth is, nobody knows the longterm impacts of GMO exposure (because Monsanto has effectively shut down scientific studies), but it doesn't take a genius to understand that if most of the food you eat is GMO (which it is), you're consuming vast amounts of herbicide. You know: That stuff you're supposed to not inhale or have touch your skin when you're spraying the weeds in your backyard.
If you're at all curious about what the big deal about GMO food is, why people around the world are leading movements to label GMOs, and why entire countries have managed to outright ban GMOs and Monsanto -- this easily digestible book is for you. I highly recommend it.
I suppose in one form or another that's SOP for every governed since capitalism began.
Does it really need, though, to extend to allowing corporations like Monsanto to poison our own people? It's common knowledge that most of the rest of the First World doesn't permit their poison. Do they need to poison the planet, too?
I'm not a fan of conspiracy theories. I believe what Sonny Barger said, that three can keep a secret of two are dead, is optimistic. So groups keeping secrets seems unlikely. What I'm getting at is then... Why? Why would we allow this? If other countries feed their people without Monsanto, why don't we? I don't have all the answers... yet. I do think that the things they do, the crimes they commit then legitimize as they play musical chairs with jobs and move from CEO to Commerce Secretary or director of the FDA are the catalysts historians will point to as the beginnings of the next big change in this country.
The only real question will be the nature of that change. A revolution? The beginnings of massive depopulation? Or will we be weakened and unable to stop a new government?
Because it seems that the money Monsanto spends to poison us could just as easily make us stronger. They built crops that could withstand the weed killer they make - and only the weed killer they make.Read more ›
1) People who know nothing about GMOs
2) Ardent anti-GMO folks who are looking for a good place to point non-believers
3) Pro-GMO folks who are open to better understanding the topic
4) Anyone who wants to absorb "controversial" information in a pleasant non-confrontational conversation-like manner
In the end this topic is really about common sense and I believe Chris demonstrates a lot of that in this piece.
Buy this--as I have--and encourage others to as well!
