What's a GMO? Who is Monsanto? Why the buzz?

If you live in the US of A, your food is being poisoned. Check it out!

Something's Happening Here

"Something's happening here. What it is becoming more clear. There's a corporation with a seed around here. What it grows we've got to beware. Hey children, what's that sound, everybody look what's goin' down....." Don't panic, but educate yourself.

When I was growing up there was a commercial on television that had this lady all dressed up and some kind of crown or hat and she was depicting Mother Nature. All was sweet and well and then somebody tried to imitate butter and all hell broke loose and she looked at the camera and said, “It’s not NICE to fool with Mother Nature.”

Over the years this commercial has popped into my head when I hear about cloning or in any way messing with Mother Nature. This is happening now, and if you are an eater, you need to pay attention, very close attention. As I read feeds from all over the world regarding the Occupy Monsanto March on May 25th, my heart is made warm and my feet less cold.

Crop Seeds Being Altered

Somehow, a company called Monsanto was granted the patent to changes they made to seeds in order to stay on top of what their pesticides could kill. They wiggled around inside the seed adding different components through a process called gene-splicing. All types of genes are being mixed together and most processed foods and most animal foods contain genetically modified organisms. We have been living with this for several years now.

Bees and Butterflies dying by the Millions

There have been continuing reports of a huge amount of bees dieing and 'abandoning their hives'. As it turns out, those bees didn't abandon anything. They were out and about doing their thing and ate seeds coated with poison. Their little bodies were found, thousands of them, near where a recent planting had occurred. Some figure 90% of the wild bees and 80% of the kept bees have died.

The Beginning of the End

Despite the loaded deck of former Monsanto employees and contractors, despite the Monsanto Protection Act recently passed by our lawmakers, I personally believe we are witnessing the beginning of the end of Monsanto and other companies that control most of the seeds, fertilizers and pesticides.

Hawaiians are 'on to' them as they dominate and use the islands as petrie dishes for their concoctions. Hungarians recently burned corn fields with GMO's because they don't want to be hungry. GMO seeds are programmed to only produce that one year. A patch of GMO wheat was recently found in a field in Oregon - not the newfangled kind, but a test strain that wasn't approved. Because of this find, Japan and North Korea have banned US Wheat and as a result the stock has suffered within the past few days.

Check out this LIST

According to the minutes, when John Kerry recently met with President Putin, he was made to wait three hours because of President Putin's outrage over President Obama's continuous support of biotech industry and the signing of the 'Monsanto Protection Act.' which protects Monsanto if their frankenfoods poison you or render your grandchildren infertile and a whole list of other ailments. Peruse the list of former Monsanto workers and compare with the jobs they now hold in the US Government, on the Supreme Court, etc. Your heart may be sickened, but let that not trouble you. There are lists of foods to boycott and if you don't think putting your money where your mouth is, think again.

You could spend all day searching the web and reading up on this important and CRITICAL issue and it is constantly changing. A group of Organic Farmers just brought a suit challenging the US Patent Offices decisions to grant Monsanto and other companies like them patents on seeds. I suggest you do that as if your life and the lives of your family depend on it, because it does.

I dearly hope you are correct when you write that you think we're seeing the beginning of the end of Monsanto, LoriAnn. Thanks for this great article.
