GMO food is harming us. The human organism cannot evolve fast enough to digest and utilize foods where the protein strands are new and the insecticides are embedded.

New study on Monsanto corn suggests GMO trees could devastate forest ecosystems

New study on Monsanto corn suggests GMO trees could devastate forest ecosystems | Monsanto: Cultivator of Deciet | Scoop.it

“Some trees are being genetically engineered to contain the Bt toxin,” notes Anne Peterman of Stop GE Trees.  “This could be a tremendous threat to forest ecosystem soils, in which beneficial fungi are a key component of the forest ecosystem.”

Will New York Be First State to Require Labeling of GMO Food? | Monsanto: Cultivator of Deciet | Scoop.it
The biotechnology industry's drive for GMOs has been incredibly undemocratic and the process is quite likely unhealthy. Labeling is a minimum -- so people can at least know what food is genetically modified and choose what's still GMO-free.

U.S. GMO food labeling drive has biotech industry biting back with media onslaught | Monsanto: Cultivator of Deciet | Scoop.it

May 2, 2014 - CHICAGO (Reuters) -

New efforts to force labeling of foods made with genetically modified crops, including a bill introduced by U.S. lawmakers Wednesday, have struck a nerve with biotech crop developers who say they are rushing to roll out a broad strategy to "combat" consumer concerns about their products.

Executives from Monsanto Co., DuPont, and Dow Chemical, among the world's largest developers of biotech crops and the chemicals used to help produce them, told Reuters this week they are putting together a campaign aimed at turning the tide on what they acknowledge is a growing public sentiment against genetically modified organisms (GMOs) used as ingredients in the nation's food supply... http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/04/25/us-usa-gmo-labeling-idUSBRE93O18S20130425

Subsidies and GM crops back on food policy menu - IRIN (2013)

Subsidies and GM crops back on food policy menu - IRIN (2013) | Monsanto: Cultivator of Deciet | Scoop.it

India imposed a 10-year moratorium on field trials of GM crops in 2012. Organizations like Greenpeace... welcomed India’s decision, but the IFPRI report describes it as a significant setback to food policy, and mainstream scientists argue that GM crops offer a way out of deepening food insecurity as growing conditions like the weather and water become compromised by climate change... the moratorium, "not based on scientific logic, will have negative effects on frontier research and demand-driven technology generation"... 

 

Per Pinstrup-Andersen, 2001 World Food Prize Laureate and the author of a book on the politics of GM food, described India’s moratorium as “nonsensical”, and said it “reduces India’s efforts to assure sustainable food security for its population”. He is among the mainstream scientists who prefer to be open-minded on GM technology and believe that while it might not be the panacea to climate-proof plants, it is a tool with some potential to ensure food security in the coming decades.

“The regulation of the use of improved crop varieties in the United States is best done by the relevant agencies within the federal government, and not by the judiciary,” he told IRIN. “Lack of understanding and insufficient knowledge among some judges are likely to result in erroneous decisions.” 

[Peter Hazell, a leading agriculture expert who has worked with the World Bank and IFPRI], who also backs the mainstream view on GM technology, likens the current situation to the state of computer science in the early 1960s. “While the critics were still obsessed with problems of mainframe computers, the industry was busy developing laptop and portable computers that transformed not only the industry, but also the world. Let’s hope that something similar happens with the plant sciences, otherwise we are going to see a lot more famines and deforestation in the years ahead. None of this is to say that we don’t need sound biosafety regulation, but that should be based on science and national priorities, not driven by the misinformed anti-science views of a few international NGOs." ...

Physics Police's comment, April 18, 2013 9:23 PM
This "leaked study" is actually an advertisement by Profit Pro to sell fertilizer. See for yourself: http://pdf.profitproag.com/Database/Jan_2013_newsletter.pdf

Data is from a SOIL report (says so in footnote 1), and has nothing to do with CROP nutrition or toxicity!

It has clearly been falsified, too. For example, numbers that should add up to 100%, do not. There are quantities for which there exists no scientific method to measure, like "Anaerobic Biology" in parts per million.
