Controlling Our Food: The World According To Monsanto

Why GMO Food is Dangerous:
Monsanto’s GMO (genetically modified organism) technology inserts non-food genes, genes from other species, into the DNA of food, altering the very nature of food itself. In some cases
these genes make the crops more tolerant to the Roundup herbicide made by Monsanto and in other cases the genes abnormally cause the DNA of food cells to produce toxic proteins that act as pesticides.

Most people are not comfortable with the concept of altering the nature of food in a grand genetic experiment with unknown consequences. The idea of food producing its own internal toxin is equally abhorrent. After all, who wants to eat toxic food? Even fewer trust this technology in the hands of Monsanto, a company with a history of blatant disregard for human health. It was Monsanto that knowingly poisoned the planet with toxic PCBs.-What Monsanto Doesn't Want You To Know-The Genetic Food Conspiracy

  1. What your definition of "non-food genes?" What a meaningless phrase...i'll say it again "non-food genes." All genetic information codes for proteins. Proteins are made from twenty one amino acids. A mammal is generally very good at breaking down proteins into the smaller pieces or the constituent amino acids. Are you saying there are non-food amino acids? Skeptical eye my rear end!
