monsanto's gm crops are bad

Genetically modified corn from Monsanto is linked to organ failure in rats. I'm just surprised that Monsanto executives we're willing to participate in the study. HA!
In a study released by the International Journal of Biological Sciences, analyzing the effects of genetically modified foods on mammalian health, researchers found that agricultural giant Monsanto's GM corn is linked to organ damage in rats.

And it would be different if they really were producing miracle seeds but...
South African farmers suffered millions of dollars in lost income when 82,000 hectares of genetically-manipulated corn (maize) failed to produce hardly any seeds.The plants look lush and healthy from the outside. Monsanto has offered compensation.

And then there are the farmer suicides.

WHY am I less than totally shocked?
Here's what DOES shock me - I'd like to go all organically grown corn products all the time - but given the amount of genetic drift shown to have occurred, there's probably no way I can avoid genetically modified corn at this point - even by growing my own!

This news dosen't suprise me, like it won't for many. As for saving your own open pollinated corn, my suggestion is, if you live in an area that grows corn, don't. If you can grow in marginal areas or limited in closed green house do. If you have some open pollinated seed, and live in an area that has frankin corn, save it in a cool, dark and very dry place, like a cliff dweling. Some viable seed has been found in such places. Maybe you will be giving your grand kids a supprise by doing so.

for this reason I never buy or adquire genetic modified food, most of the people ignored the fact that them are consuming a product with many genetic alterations, and this end in a possible illness or disease. said...

I would like to have the chance of read more about it the video is wonderful read read more about it !
