Last week Activist Post reported that Monsanto had kept dossiers on influential people throughout France and other European countries. This week, it was revealed that the German chemical and pharmaceuticals giant Bayer disclosed that Monsanto, the controversial U.S. pesticide producer behind genetically modified organisms (GMOs) involved in more than 13,000 plaintiffs lawsuits alleging illness had kept “watch lists” of its opponents including journalists in key EU member states and in EU institutions.
Some foods can help your body become the healthiest and strongest it can be, and keep cancer and other diseases at bay. Multiple studies have shown that a variety of fresh, whole foods can make you feel at your best while giving your body the energy and building blocks it needs.
However, just as some foods protect us from diseases, others are the perfect recipe for disaster, wreaking havoc on your system — with cancer as a possible side-effect. With so much information out there, it’s often hard to know what’s safe and what’s not.
Many of us pay attention to food labels, but some foods are so commonly used and convenient — we often forget that they may house a host of toxic chemicals too.
Here are some cancer-causing foods that specialists revealed they would never eat:
(Natural News) Monsanto’s atrocious acts were bound to catch up with them some time — and it is beginning to look like that time has finally come. Recently revealed documents prove that Monsanto knowingly sold banned toxic chemicals for years after confirming their catastrophic risks to the environment and human health. Bill Sherman, the assistant attorney general for Washington…Read more
(Natural News) Modern-day pollution is making dust a part of our lives. It’s in the air we breathe, and in the place where we spend the biggest part of our lives in — at home. That’s why it’s alarming to learn that indoor dust found in the typical U.S. household has around 45 harmful endocrine-disrupting chemicals,…Read more
Fish has long been touted as a super food from doctors, nutritionists and specialists from around the world. Many people choose not to eat meat or other animal products, but show pride in their presumed health conscious decision to consume fish. But, as with almost everything else that is promoted heavily in the media, there’s…Read more & video documentary(error?)
There’s a lot more to the Monsanto Company than meets the eye: aside from its line of toxic herbicides and genetically engineered seeds, they’ve also been involved in everything from the production of Agent Orange during the Vietnam War to cancer-causing PCBs.
While the company continually states that its purpose is to “feed the world” by creating GMOs and chemicals (an assertion the United Nations has repeatedly disagreed with), it is still heavily involved in our food supply from seed to harvest.
And now, thanks to a new partnership with a “cutting edge” startup out of California, Monsanto could soon be flooding the market with more GMOs (including one of the world’s favorite fruits) than ever before.
And as usual, absolutely nothing will be labeled, meaning it will be up to the consumer to figure out which foods are GMO and which aren’t on their own time.
Monsanto to Flood the Market with “Longer-Lasting” New GMOs
Monsanto’s new project will focus specifically on “longer-lasting” new GMO foods in an effort to combat food waste.
According to its press release, Monsanto is investing $125 million in gene editing technology through a new partnership with Pairwise Plants, a California agricultural startup that will help Monsanto to create gene edited corn, soybeans, cotton and canola crops.
This new technology is said to be the next big thing in the GMO industry.
It allows scientists to play God with our food supply by altering foods even quicker in a laboratory setting, bestowing upon them new traits like the inability to show signs of rotting or wasting.
Among new varieties of GMO crops, Pairwise is also expected to work with Monsanto on a new GMO wheat, as well as GMO fruits including the potential to create GMO strawberries.
“My co-founders and I believe the technologies we have each been developing can have a profound impact in plant agriculture and will speed innovation that is badly needed to feed a growing population amid challenging conditions created by a changing climate,” said Pairwise founder J. Keith Joung about the new arrangement.
What This Means for the Future of Monsanto
With the recent European approval of its merger with Bayer set, Monsanto is now upping the ante like never before.
It’s becoming more clear than ever that their vision for the Future of Food is exactly what we thought it was — one filled with Frankenfood experiments, crops doused in cancer-linked chemicals and an increasingly dominant level of control over the food system.
The alleged goal of this new pairing is to create foods that will “last longer” on store shelves, but what good is longer-lasting food if the health consequences are unknown due to a lack of long-term testing, and the creation of new foods that are inherently foreign to the body?
Already one Columbia University study has shown that this type of gene editing can create “hundreds of unintended mutations” within the target organism. It’s not known whether this extends to gene edited foods, but now the question is, “Do you want to be the guinea pig?”
Monsanto is hoping that the answer to that question is a resounding “Yes,” as it has been for so much of the unsuspecting general public over these past few decades.
