I find this website often adds a tad too much emotional spin for comfort, but at the same time he usually covers real issues and real news which few others do so consistently. Personally, I am convinced, having read Seeds of Destruction in full which highlights dozens of peer-reviewed studies on GM crops/foods etc., that GM should be immediately outlawed as a perversion of Nature and something already proven to be harmful to animal and human health. Full stop; end of story.
Of course, that’s not going to happen.
If Mike Adams is right in this article about the thrust, scope and power of this new ‘Monsanto Protection Act’ which is apparently it’s real name, then this is just one more reason why we should start growing our own food again and/or getting absolutely as much as possible from local producers at our Farmers’ Markets. Personally I don’t trust most of the organic stuff at the supermarkets and regard packaged food which can be stored a long time but are pre-prepared and ready to eat, even if organic, as useless. I will buy organic produce there if there is no local equivalent, it’s a way of voting with my dollars, but I am not convinced it is all that much better – a fruit picked weeks too early, even if organic, is really not all that good. We are all so used to prematurely picked fruit that even farmers’ markets vendors do the same thing.
Anyway, a quote from the article:
“Corporate-government conspiracy is fascism
This new law forces the USDA to automatically approve all GMO planting permits sought by Monsanto and other biotech firms, effectively granting Monsanto dominion over the U.S. government. This is the very definition of fascism, a form of tyrannical government where corporations conspire with the government to destroy or confiscate all rights, powers and assets, leaving the people impoverished and powerless.”
