Arun Shrivastava's insight:

13 minute documentary, the scientific trial conducyed by Dr Seralini and his team in France is explained in simple language.

 

Note that the four Genetically Engineered seeds corporations [Mahyco (which is a Monsanto subsidiary), Nath Seeds, JK seeds, etc;] had submitted results of 45 studies in the Supreme Court to prove the biosafety of GM seeds. NOT ONE WAS CARRIED OUT OVER THE LIFE CYCLE OF GUINAE PIGS. The maximum duration was 90 daysp; majority of studies were terminated within 15 to 30 days. The Seralini study was carried out over the entire life cycle of the experimental animals.

 

The results were horrific. Watch the video and then download the transcript in PDF, here: http://www.ogm-alerte-mondiale.net/IMG/pdf/ogm_english_13_tc.pdf

Russian Food Security Experts Fight GMO Registrations in Supreme Court

Russian Food Security Experts Fight GMO Registrations in Supreme Court | Adverse Health Effects of Genetically Engineered Foods | Scoop.it
A group of scientists and food security experts have taken the Russian Government resolution, which will allow the registration of GM crops and products containing GMOs from June 1, 2014, to the Supreme Court.

 

On December 16 the group, which includes representatives of non-profit organizations and experts in the field of biological and food security, filed a suit in Russia’s Supreme Court to challenge the adoption of Russian Government Decree 839 of 23 September 2013, regarding the state registration of GMOs.

 

According to the experts, this Government resolution violates the constitutional rights of Russian citizens, including the right to a healthy environment, and food safety information.

Prime Minister: MANMOHAN SINGH
Agriculture Minister: Sharad Pawar
Environment Minister: Veerappa Moiley [VERY OILY MOILEY]

"A flood of genetically modified crops will soon sweep across India if the Environment Minister gets his way. Minister Moily is meant to protect India’s fields and forests, not mollify Monsanto, and it’s up to us to ensure he does!"
"We've done it before! Citizens concerned about health and farmers furious about corporate bullying stopped Monsanto’s GM brinjal. But now Moily has convened a committee that could give the green light to 120 types of transgenic crops. Moily has already made many enemies by agreeing destructive forest and coal projects, so if we act now, we can get him sacked."

Sign now, and share widely.

Also note that projects worth Rs 1600 billion were stalled by India's Green Court. These projects are also likely to be approved by ignoring EPA and Green Court decisions. These three insane ministers need to be sacked.

Radioactive Fertilizer: The Primary Cause of Lung Cancer

Radioactive Fertilizer: The Primary Cause of Lung Cancer | Adverse Health Effects of Genetically Engineered Foods | Scoop.it

put together something  we didn't know? Recent research suggests that polonium-210, a radioactive element that is also chemically toxic, is the primary culprit in lung damage.

Arun Shrivastava's insight:

WHAT CAUSES LUNG CANCERS IN SMOKERS? Perhaps several radioactive isotopes found in phosphatic fertilizers.

Has Dr Mercola uncovered something that many of us missed? He says 'the primary sources of exposure is via calcium phosphate fertilizers, used on tobacco fields and food crops respectively and that calcium phosphate contain polonium 210, a lethal radioactive substance. Googled "polonium 210 tobacco." It has been known since the 1960s that the fertilizers used in tobacco farming contain Polonium 210, Uranium 235 and 238 isotopes which are the primary cause of lung cancer. The way modern cigarettes are manufactured, each stick contains about 4000 chemicals of which 10% are classified as toxic.

Could it also be the reason why foods grown with chemical fertilizers are responsible for many degenerative diseases? This article raises huge questions.

Extreme Toxicity of Roundup Destroys GM/Non-GM 'Substantial Equivalence' Argument

Extreme Toxicity of Roundup Destroys GM/Non-GM 'Substantial Equivalence' Argument | Adverse Health Effects of Genetically Engineered Foods | Scoop.it

If Monsanto's Roundup herbicide were actually 'safer than table salt' as they once advertised, the consumption of GM food wouldn't be nearly as controversial.

 

The truth, however, is that virtually all GM food today contains residues of this toxic chemical.

 

Incidentally, this disproves that GM and non-GM foods are 'substantially equivalent," which is the primary doctrinal justification behind why GM foods are not properly safety tested...


Via Sepp Hasslberger
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Ask this question: Is natural, organically grown food "substantially equivalent: to Genetically Engineered Foods? If not, which characteristics are different? Which characteristics are harmful to humans and animals?

Based on hard evidences from countless studies, today we know that no manufactured food can be 'SUBSTANTIALLY EQUIVALENT" to natural, unprocessed foods.

It was well established by early 1980s that Green Revolution technologies had poisoned our foods [pesticide residues] and our foods had lost vital nutritive content. By 1990s, it was clear that many vital nutrients had simply disappeared from our common foods like milk, meat, vegetables, fruits, even cereals.

And now the world is faced with Genetically Engineered foods. With these foods, you simply can't wash the poison off because the food itself is poisonous, each cell is poisonous; plant roots are poisonous, leaves are poisonous, stems are poisonous.

Sepp Hasslberger's curator insight, December 3, 2013 11:10 AM

When asking for genetically modified seeds to be approved, the companies have a trick. They say those seeds (and the fruits that grow from them) are "substantially equivalent" to the natural variety. 

They say, in other words, that there is no discernible difference between GMO and natural.

 

Which of course is not true. Now in addition to this, most GM crops are engineered to withstand Monsanto's glyphosate poison weed killer Roundup, which is sprayed on the fields and ends up on your plate.

 

So much for substantial equivalence. 

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, December 4, 2013 6:17 PM

Well this is a pretty good argument for why GM food is not the same as or so called "Substantially equivalent" to the natural or organic variety of plants.

Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Broadly agree with the observations. However, majority of journalists ignore two vital adverse impacts on soil health. 1. The herbicide used in conjunction with GM seeds kills living soil, the soil biological matter, and 2. It actually prevents roots from absorbing certain vital nutrients, especially magnesium. This impact on soil has been observed everywhere. In India, only Bt Cotton is allowed to be sown. After cotton harvest farmers usually plant wheat which is a winter crop. The yield of wheat planted on GM cotton field after harvest has consistently shown significant decline ranging from 30 to 35%. Actually, agriculture biotechnology is most unsuitable for India where nearly all farming operations are carried out by labour and not machines. It has also been proven that Bt cotton yield is below or just about comparable to non Bt inorganic or organic cotton, and under both management methods, subsequent crops are not affected.

Subject: GMOs and testing of all foods in Delhi state

Emailed letter

 

Dear Prashant ji,

 

You have been the counsel in matter of a Public Interest Litigation [PIL] number 260 of 2005 and, as such we, the undersigned, assume that you are fully aware of the dangers of Genetically Modified [GMO] seeds and foods.

 

In this matter you are on record with your arguments in the Supreme Court. We quote one that you made to the media: “We had argued that the field trials and commercial release of GM crops, particularly, Bt brinjal should not be done unless and until proper regulations for ensuring safety aspects are put in place.” http://www.financialexpress.com/news/sc-asks-govt-to-respond-to-safety-conerns-of-gmos/453457/0

 

We draw your attention to the report of the all-party Standing Committee in Parliament that unequivocally recommended to the Government that Genetically Engineered seeds and foods be banned in India. As early as 2001, all samples of food made from soy and corn from Delhi market sent to an accredited laboratory for testing of GM contamination tested positive. Food experts have identified many food products including baby food that are known to be GM contaminated. These well known brands are being sold openly in super stores and neighbourhood grocers without labelling.

 

Are your party and you not concerned with public health and the health of infants, growing children, women and the elderly and farmers rights to seeds? Please consider the following issues which have already been discussed and debated in the Honourable Supreme Court and the Parliament:

(a) Ban all GM seeds and foods in Delhi state,

(b) Establish a testing laboratory in Delhi to test every food being sold in the state, and

(c) Institute severe penalty for offenders for selling poisoned foods that kill.

 

Kerala, Sikkim, Uttarakhand, and Northeastern states have already banned GMOs. We expect you to kindly expedite the process within a week as part of the newly elected government.

 

Kind regards

NON-GMO HYBRID ACHIEVES BETTER YIELD

Spectrum™ Premium Non-GMO seed provides what many others cannot by KC Kinder, Freelance Writer It has been said that a man has not truly lived until he has lived for something.
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Non-GMO hybrid achieves substantially higher yields. This is actually not news, nevertheless good news on the corn front. The most dangerous adverse effect of herbicide tolerant seeds is that the use of glyphosate immobilises soil and prevents roots from nutrient uptake, particularly magnesium. Glyphosate also kills other living organisms in the soil.

 

Dr Dough Gurien Sherman, reviewing 20 year data also came to the conclusion that GM seeds DO NOT  increase yield.
