Little Nicky Machiavelli has evidence The Independent newspaper is now owned by Monsasnto and exists only to publish Monsanto propaganda and advance Monsanto’s agenda of gaining a monopoly on seed stock for the world’s stape food crops.
If GM crops are bad, show us the evidence

“Its no longer tenable to call GM unnatural and so inherently wrong
It is nearly 20 years since the first GM crops were grown.
Some 28 countries cultivate them on a commercial scale, and many hundreds of millions of people now safely eat GM food directly or indirectly on a regular basis. Yet, to judge from the rhetoric of anti-GM activists from the rough-cut environmentalists to the smooth-talking purveyors of organic food you could be forgiven for thinking that medical catastrophe and genetic Armageddon are upon us, courtesy of the Frankenfoods revolution.
Calestous Juma, a professor of international development at Harvard, is not one to mince his words when it comes to genetically modified crops. To paraphrase his speech at McGill University in Montreal later today, Juma believes the time has come for the vociferous opponents of GM to put up or shut up. The use of transgenic crops, he points out, has to date prevented the spraying of 473 million kilograms of toxic pesticides, reduced carbon dioxide emissions by 23.1bn kg equivalent to taking 10.2 million cars off the road and saved 108.7 million hectares of land from being turned into farmland. Rather than creating environmental havoc, GM crops have, by and large, been better for the environment than growing the equivalent conventional crops, with relatively lower yields and higher chemical input.
Equally, no-one has died or fallen ill directly as a result of eating GM food. Studies showing that GM food damages the health of laboratory animals have been discredited. Contrary to what the pro-organic lobby would have us believe, it is actually more dangerous to eat organic food as the 53 people in Germany who died in 2011 from eating organic beansprouts tragically discovered.”
he hi wrong on all counts. Not only is there a mountain of evidence by perfectly crespectable scientists (a couple of nobel prizewinning biologists amongs them) that cast very serious doubts on some strains of GM staple food crops (the way they generalise is an attempt at deflection typical of the corporate ‘science’ lobby. No genuine scientist would ever say GM foods are safe or are not safe, they would examine GM seeds species by species.
Safety is not the primary issue here, the world is overpopulated, the planet cannot sustain 7 billion people, especially with the poor five billion demanding lifestyles enjoyed by the privileged two billion, Our New Unhappy Lords will reduce population one way or another, be it by war, famine, pestilence, plague of GM organisms. No, the real issue is about monopoly control of the seed stock.
Is this shit sucking sycophant, this corporate lackey, and rent seeking apology for a human being really asking us to believe it would be a good idea to had a monopoly on the food supply to a corporation whose track records shows they are utterly ruthless in pursuit of the corporate goals, whose criminal record showws they have repeatedly falsified data, lied, bribed and used threats and coercion to foist unsafe products on the world.
Connor says, “Show us the evidence” but as with the CAGWARTs (Carbon Driven Anthropogenic Global Warming Alternative Reality Twats), the GM lobby will try to deny any evidence that exposes their scam is invalid. As for Connor, if the cupid stunt is still asking for evidence what fucking planet has he been on for the past twenty years?
One of the top comments I read under his post was this:
a) The seeds are patented, which means farmers can no longer produce seeds from their own crops for the next season, but are forced into further monetary outlay to buy from GMO seed companies. If they do not and produce their own seed from GM source material, they can get sued for millions.
b) The chemicals used on these crops are highly toxic and in Argentina have resulted in rising cases of cancer.
c) The use of these chemicals is killing off the bee population which the planet needs for pollination.
d) The studies done by the French scientists, one of the few that have actually been allowed to be published in the Main Stream Media, have proved that these GMO crops cause cancer, infertility and shortened life spans. On the contrary, companies like Monsanto who have to employ people like Blackwater, have done all they can to gag the press so that they are the alpha and the omega on the whole subject.
In South Africa a full open, honest and fully disclosed Independent Scientific Study ( independent of all companies such as Monsanto and all their affiliates, known and unknown covert operatives such a Blackwater) by at least three different laboratories over no less than a period of five years. In the interim, all products containing any GMO ingredients, or any ingredients derived from a genetically modified plant, or any meat product fed a genetically modified feed, must be labelled as such in bold and clear type.

The documentary shows how the lucrative soybean industry in Argentina has culminated in the death of a great number of residents suffering from cancer due to the overuse of chemical pesticides.

Need more? Independently confirmed, Roundup is toxic! Saying otherwise is a crime and should be prosecuted because you are killing people! I have nothing against genetically modifying a plant to better survive, but the way these people are doing it is not ok!

The highly unregulated biotech re-engineering and patenting of life is highly dangerous and unethical. Science does not enough about the intract web of life to be meddling with singular aspects of our biosphere, creating chain reactions.
Further the issue of GMOs is more about the total impact on the environment and human health that is only now beginning to show up.
The patenting of reengineered seeds, the pesticides, chemicals, fertilizers required to grow them all owned by the same biotech cartel; and the devastation to our natural biodiversity, poisoning of our soils and waterways, killing off beneficial insects all have given our future over to a science still evolving and painfully disconnected from the greater health of our environment and human health. We are rolling the dice in a relatively new aspect of science, biotechnology, that has little or no oversight and regulation and much of it, once released, will be very difficult to reverse.
Finally, it is driven by a trillion dollar biotech cartel and, insofar as the gmo aspect and ownership of the global seed supply means control of the global food supply and the pesticides needed to control them. Not okay. YOUR FOOD, YOUR HEALTH
Back to me. GMOs are not the problem, it is making them resistant to chemicals that damage the environment and have unaccounted for reactions in the human body that is the problem.
As long as you improve the natural resistance, or growth of a plant that is not a problem at all. The problem is that by genetically modifying a plant to be resistant to weekiller and insecticide we turn that plant into a vehicle for delivering the toxin into the human food chain.
A recent report takes 123 pages to list and summarise peer reviewed research papers raising serious concerns about G M foods. Scientists respond with their usual knee jerk “ah but it’s not proper science (to a ‘scientist’ it seem, proper science is only that which affirms their prejudices)Well you should understand by now only a fool would take a scientists word for anything. Check the evidence for youself and then see if you agree with Steve Connor and the scientific crooks and liars he writes poropaganda for. Here’s the 123 pages of evidence they pretend to be unaware of
Not really evidence they will shout. Well look, the report lists project after project, all peer reviewed (scientists place great faith on peer review)so again we see the dishonesty and hypocrisy of those who defend the genetic engineering industry.
This article does not talk about the chemicals Monsanto customers are contractually obliged to use and which are deadly to humans. Science doesn’t need to tell me that putting agent orange in my food is bad for me, but it does say so: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0278691512005637 Rats died 2-3 times more rapidly than untreated animals. The author is a liar and he is welcome to sue me for saying so! I shall leave him without a career, a home, a family, a pot to piss in or a penny to scratch his arse with and take great pleasure in doing so.
