The USDA keeps legalizing tons of GMO food.
It's Genetically Modified ^ | 1-4-11 | James Assini

Posted on 12/11/2011 10:37:25 PM PST by acroagogue

Earlier this year, the USDA made a decision to allow the commercial use of “Roundup Ready” genetically modified sugar beets. The decision came a week after the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture approved the planting of a yet another genetically modified plant, alfalfa.

Michael Gregoire, deputy administrator of APHIS, a biotechnology regulatory service claims genetically modified sugar beets are safe and should be deregulated. “After conducting an environmental assessment, we have determined Roundup Ready sugar beets could be partially deregulated without posing a plant pest risk or causing significant effects on the environment,” says Gregoire. APHIS claims the partial deregulation of “Roundup Ready” sugar beets is just an interim measure until the company completes its full environmental impact statement.

Isn't it cool how we manipulate God's creation in accordance with His giving us dominion over the earth, and the plants, and the animals and the fish?

Opposable thumbs and big brains rock.

We even keep carnivores for pets. In fact, most of our pets are carnivores.

What a great world.

Genetically modified organisms are an affront to The Creator. He made all things to reproduce after their kinds. This is not good and will end up reeking unexpected havoc.

I have no reason to avoid carbohydrates. They are required for normal human life, as are fatty acids.

I do prefer my carbohydrates converted from sugars to other carbohydrates by yeastie beasties enslaved to my will (because I need the B vitamins), but I'm not shy about eating a lard and sugar sandwitch on white bread.

You some kind of prevert that has eating issues?

Monsanto wouldn’t go through all the trouble of going to the Supreme Court to have the US Constitution altered via judicial fiat to change patent law on food/seeds stuffs so Monsanto could monopolized farming.

Having accomplished that, Monsanto must now successfully create a market based on it’s genetically altered seeds by influencing any government agency necessary and any world government willing to succumb.

No, not like it is today at all! There is no comparison between something being hybrid which is perfectly acceptable to The LORD and something being genetically modified. With GMOs two or more unrelated organisms (even as different as mammal and plant) have a part of their genetic code removed and spliced into the code of the unrelated recipient changing it drastically in a way that is debauchery. These debaucheries are not meant by The Creator for human nor animal consumption. We were made to eat that which The Creator designed for us to eat.

The Bible prophesies huge famines near the end of this age. You can be sure GMOs are a great contributor to this. GMOs are being made so that they do not produce viable seeds. The seeds that are produced by GMOs often will not grow when planted. Farmers have become, and increasing so, slaves to the a few multibillion dollar seed companies. Those who control seeds, completely control the world's food supplies. This is intensely evil.

____________________________________________________

http://www.co-intelligence.org/y2k_monsantoisevil.html

For 12,000 years farmers have followed a simple process: save the best seed from each harvest and use it to plant the next year's. Seed saving lets farmers cultivate the most useful and robust strains, improving the food supply. The plants we eat today were produced by thousands of years of human selection.

That could all be over in the next decade, thanks to the biotechnology industry and the United States Department of Agriculture.

In March 1998 the USDA and cottonseed giant Delta and Pine Land Co. announced a new patent: a genetic technology that stops plants from reproducing. Soon seed companies will be able to breed the gene, which some call the "terminator," into their products. Those seeds will produce crops that don't reproduce, forcing farmers to buy new seeds every year. Seeds with the terminator gene should be on the market by 2004.

Biotechnology companies produce the strongest, highest yielding seeds. When they add terminator technology to their products, farmers who hope to compete will have little choice but to purchase new seeds every year.

Melvin J. Oliver, the USDA scientist who developed the terminator gene, told Global Pesticide Campaigner why the U.S. government wants to stop farmers from saving seeds: to fatten the profits of American seed companies. "Our mission is to protect U.S. agriculture," he said.

Two months after the announcement, agrochemical conglomerate Monsanto bought Delta and Pine for almost $2 billion. Monsanto is world leader in bioengineered crops; with the USDA's new technology, it will be able to create an endless market for its products.

Farmers in the developing world will feel the terminator's harshest effects. The gene will allow commercial seed producers to profit from self-pollinating crops, including rice and wheat. As the seed industry continues to consolidate, the ability to produce those two crops, the staple foods for three-quarters of the world's poor people, could depend on a private monopoly.

Censorship takes many forms: The Ecologist's printer of 26 years refused to release the magazine's special issue on Monsanto and discarded 14,000 copies, citing fears of a libel suit.

Argentina experienced more fallout as well that threatens to spread. Its soybean monoculture affects the countryside hugely. Traditional farmers close to soybean ones are seriously harmed by aerial Roundup spraying. Their crops are destroyed as that's how this herbicide works. It kills all plants without gene-modified resistance. It also kills animals with farmers reporting their chickens died and horses were gravely harmed. Humans are affected as well and show violent symptoms of nausea, diarrhea, vomiting and herbicide-inflicted skin lesions. Other reports claimed further fallout - animals born with severe organ deformities, deformed bananas and sweet potatoes, and lakes filled with dead fish. In addition, rural families said their children developed "grotesque blotches on their bodies."

Forest lands were also damaged as vast acreage was cleared for soybean planting. Their loss "created an explosion of medical problems because Roundup is toxic, kills every non-GMO plant that grows and, it harms animals and humans as well that come in contact with it.

As for higher promised yields, results showed reduced harvests of between 5% and 15% compared with traditional soybean crops plus "vicious new weeds" that need up to triple the amount of spraying to destroy. By the time farmers learn this, it's too late. By 2004, GMO soybean plantings spread across the country, they cost more to produce and yield less, and Engdahl summarized farmers' plight: "A more perfect scheme of human bondage would be hard to imagine," and it was even worse than that. Argentina was the first test case "in a global plan that was decades in the making and absolutely shocking and awesome in its scope."

Do you think He gave us dominion to use it responsibly or to do whatever we like no matter what the consequences may be? He clearly created seeds to reproduce after their kind. Read The Bible so that you can understand what His will is, which isn't to do whatever we want in the name of dominion.

You are wrong, thousands of foods you eat today are the results of a hybrid, and most hybrids will not reproduce, they are crossed each year to reproduce the hybrid seed. GM plants just speeds up the process.

Just speeds up? Are you kidding? If it were only that, who would argue. However, the modification process is more complex than catalyzing a natural process. First, some of this is producing cheap easier to produce food. However, there has been some experimenting with population sterilization ( a UN favorite), and who knows what else. I would ask are the folks at the FDA eating all the food they are approving. This is why I barely eat vegetables. Meat, well there is only a level of modification which doesnt kill the animal,so maybe we are minimizing our exposure. Ug, did not want to eat breakfast thinking of the GM process.

There is a diference between doing hybrids in the field and in the lab where you manually change the DNA to your liking. It would be like arguing Dolly the Sheep is the same as bred designer breeds of lamb that are rasied for food.

Was this by definition impossible with conventionally crossbred plants? Seems if they could find a stock A and a stock B of something like a tomato, such that A x B fertilization produces acceptable first generation plants whose second generation seeds don’t grow, then they have achieved their “evil” secret by utterly conventional means. Gene splicing and the like hastens this process, but I am not sold that it is absolutely necessary.

This sounds like misuse of Roundup. GM farmers should respect the needs of non-GM farmers and use ground level application if there is any possibility of wind drift. This would go for any weed control or pesticide which aids one crop while having the capacity to harm an adjacent crop, and where adjacent humans are exposed carelessly. This is a neighbor problem not a GM or Roundup problem.

Oy.

Are you aware that Mother Nature takes genetic code from unrelated organisms and splices it together ALL THE TIME?

Did you know that we have at least one WHOLE ENTIRE VIRUS patched into our DNA, and that we pass it along to every one of our children?

Genetic manipulation by DNA splicing is nothing new. All we humans have done is direct the process for our own purposes, instead of sitting back and letting it happen randomly.

I like what JRandomFreeper said. God gave me genius-level IQ so that I could direct the placement of genes into organisms in a way that benefits humanity. Cool.

However, the modification process is more complex than catalyzing a natural process.

FYI, every bit of genetic engineering that occurs in a lab is done with enzymes harvested from perfectly natural bacteria. All of our genetic engineering tools are produced by nature. We didn't invent any of it; we only learned to use it.

However, there has been some experimenting with population sterilization ( a UN favorite), and who knows what else.

What we do with the tools given us is based in our morality. The tools themselves have no intrinsic quality of good or evil; they merely exist. You can use a knife to chop up food to make a nice stew, or to kill someone in cold blood: the morality of how you use it is yours, not the knife's.

Oops, I wasn’t quite accurate here.

Enzymes used for genetic modification are harvested from bacteria and other kinds of organisms. Yeast and plants also provide those enzymes.

This isn’t about food. It’s about control of food.

By copywriting a strain of modified seed, then allowing that seed to infect all other seeds of it’s type, the company can thn say ‘all the seed containing our getetic code is ours’.

Think of any food type (corn,rice,soy) as a commodity. If you control all of it, you control the price and availability.

Henry Kissinger said;
“Control the oil, you control the nation. Control the food, you control the people.”

In the case of the Terminator.

This is cotton country and I can assure you nobody saves seed they buy it pretreated and packaged in fact if they can create a strain of cotton that doesn't produce seed that would be a boom for the business and take out a big part of ginning. Maize and alfalfa are about the only other crops grown here and they also purchase the seed pretreated and packaged. I know of no one that commercially produces a crop that saves seed.

Bingo! Monsanto is the greatest threat to security and viability - period! Yet, they have managed to gain control of seed and food production worldwide without arrousing the suspicions of the majority of the sheeple. They employ private security forces which evade scrutiny and trample on property rights like the gestapo, yet are never called upon to answer for it. For those who want to learn about Monsanto, I recommend watching two documentaries: 'The World According To Monsanto' and 'Food Inc.'. You will cringe.

I have several friends who have had the "pleasure" of enduring run-ins with Monsanto over seed. Two of them grow nothing but non-GMO in their fields, but carryover and transfer from adjoining fields led some GMO plants to root in their fields - this is enough for Monsanto, with the help of the courts, to prevent them from saving their seed. They didn't plant it, but it is there, so it belongs to Monsanto.

Read about India's experience with Monsanto RR Soubean and other GMO's and the thousands of farmers who just gave up and committed suicide over Monsanto's tactics.

The majority of sheeple have no clue what is going on, nor do they care - the shelves are stocked with processed and refined crap, why should they?!? Yet, Monsanto marches on - seeking patents on genetic manipulations and controlling over 70% of our food supply.

Exactly. Wind pollinated grains get contaminated by Monsanto’s Patented grain and the farmer that saved his own seed for decades now has to buy it. Where is the lawsuit against Monsanto for pollen contamination?

Taste of vegetables, for example, is cause by force growing and picking before it is ripe, so the produce has a longer shelf life. Example a garden grown tomato tastes much, much better than a hot house, those extra days on the vine makes the difference.

Slightly OT, but not by much:

This week on Financial Sense Newshour, Jim interviews Filmmaker Kristin Canty. In Farmageddon Kristin tells the story of small, family farms that were providing safe, healthy foods to their communities and were forced to stop, sometimes through violent action, by agents of government bureaucracies.

Kristin seeks to understand why and through this film add her voice to the movement to protect and preserve the dwindling number of American family farms struggling to survive.
