Stop Monsanto's Deadly GMOs!

Because the future of the Human Race hangs in the balance. GMOs kill human liver & kidney cells and cause cancer. See the recent French study. Meanwhile, Obama keeps stuffing the FDA with ex Monsanto cronies. GMOs are deadly and must be stopped for the future of our children!

Genetically Modified Foods Cause Tumors, Says French Study

A new study out of France concludes that a diet of genetically modified corn, specifically Monsanto's Roundup-resistant corn, gave rats who ate it a series of tumors, as well as trouble with their livers and kidneys. "During the two-year study, the scientists found that up to 50% of the male rats and 70% of females that ate genetically modified corn...died prematurely. That compared to a 30% (male) and 20% (female) mortality rate among control rats that ate conventional corn without Roundup." The authors of the study also reported that rates of liver problems were 2.5 to 5 times higher in animals who ate genetically modified food. 

Russia halts imports of GMO corn after cancer studyScientists will review French findings that Monsanto's product causes tumors

Russia has suspended imports of Monsanto’s genetically-modified corn in light of a French study which linked the crops to cancer.

Agence France-Presse reports:

Russia’s consumer-rights regulator Rospotrebnadzor asked scientists at the country’s Institute of Nutrition to review the study. The watchdog has also contacted to European Commission’s Directorate General for Health & Consumers to explain the EU’s position on GM corn.

As Salon noted last week, the study found that rats fed Monsanto’s GMO corn, or exposed to its popular herbicide, developed tumors and organ damage, often dying younger than control group rats. 

As Russia’s move illustrates, the study has fueled long-held concerns over GMO crops. A spokesperson from Monsanto announced that business would not be greatly hurt by the Russian suspension, as the country imports only a small amount of grain from the U.S.. However, the multinational corporation might feel a sting if more nations follow in Russia’s wake. France has announced it will uphold a ban on GMO crops, while activists and farmers in California and elsewhere in the U.S. are pushing for GMO foods to be labeled in stores and for the government to further investigate the health impact of Monsanto’s products.

      No one person or company should possess the power to control our food supply, nor hold a patent for a basic building block of life. Monsanto has been proven in the past to have twisted and lied about research data (i.e. Agent Orange) and I'm sure would not hesitate to do the same for GMOs. We need to stop Monsanto now before its too late. Our politicians and law makers have already been infiltrated by Monsanto, so it is up to the people to stop Monsanto now.

      GMO's are completely unnatural and the repercussions are now apparent. They are causing many health issues all over the world and we need to do the right thing and stop them, because they're incapable of doing the right thing for humans health on they're own.
