Did you hear about the 800 esteemed scientists who came together and demanded the production of genetically modified crops and products be stopped? Scientists who called on world powers to re-evaluate the future of agriculture and seek sustainability rather than corporate profits? Don’t be surprised if you haven’t, as the mainstream media won’t touch this one.
GMO is a big game and lot of money involved. Monsanto has its own scientists and lobbyist for turning issues to their favor. Monsanto has its people all the way to the White House and Monsanto Protection Act Signed By Obama himself and the same time when shaking hands with Monsanto the first family of the United States eats organic food from their garden, healthy food !
Masses eating GMO food doesnt seem to bother them (or the MSM).
This was started over a decade ago and is still being updated. It was the creation of The Institute of Science in Society and is a non-profit group of scientists from around the world. The letter has 828 signatures representing some 84 different countries.
It is evident that further tests need to carried out before the release of these bio compounds into nature and into our diet.
The letter can be found here and lists 29 points of address
Open Letter from World Scientists to All Governments Concerning Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)
- The scientists are extremely concerned about the hazards of GMOs to biodiversity, food safety, human and animal health, and demand a moratorium on environmental releases in accordance with the precautionary principle.
- They are opposed to GM crops that will intensify corporate monopoly, exacerbate inequality and prevent the essential shift to sustainable agriculture that can provide food security and health around the world.
- They call for a ban on patents of life-forms and living processes which threaten food security, sanction biopiracy of indigenous knowledge and genetic resources and violate basic human rights and dignity.
- They want more support on research and development of non-corporate, sustainable agriculture that can benefit family farmers all over the world.
