More than 85 percent of all corn & soybeans grown in the United States are genetically modified. We are eating it!
Corn & soy are modified for herbicide resistance and are consequently sprayed with massive quantities of toxic chemicals. This includes breakfast cereals and other products labeled "natural" or "all GM crops are simply unsafe.
DANGERS: They expose people to novel and potentially dangerous allergens and to higher levels of pesticides. Animals grazing on GM crops have died from ruptured internal organs.
THE FOOD IS NOT LABELLED AS GENETICALLY ENGINEERED & THE PUBLIC DOES NOW KNOW!
THE FDA DOES NOT ENFORCE LABELLING THE FOOD AS A "GMO".
This is ghastly!
In December 2012 the FDA quietly issued its approval of genetically modified “AquaAdvantage” salmon. This is an Atlantic salmon with genes inserted from a Chinook salmon and an ocean pout. This causes giant salmon with growth hormones locked in the "on" position. The GE Salmon rapidly grow into a type of super-Schwarzenegger creature triple the size of a regular Salmon. One of the purposes is to rush the growth to "market size" faster.
SALMON: Evidence5 suggests the GE-Salmon might have higher levels of a potentially cancer promoting hormone, IGF-1, more antibiotics, and more of potentially life-threatening allergen(s).
Cross Species Reproduction: Up to 5% of the fish may be fertile. GE fish could escape into local waterways and wreak havoc on the ecosystem and already threatened wild salmon populations," warn Friends of the Earth. If it escapes into the wild, it could wreak havoc on the marine environment, threatening wild Atlantic salmon populations with extinction. The frankenfish also poses potential health risks to people -- and not just those who eat it. One major concern is the vast amounts of antibiotics that could be required for frankenfish production.
Did you know that Calorie and nutritional information were not always required on food labels. But since 1990 it has been required and most consumers use this information every day.
Doesn't it make sense that genetically engineered foods containing experimental viral, bacterial, insect, plant or animal genes should be labeled, too?
