NYT Editors Ignore GMO Health Dangers
by Stephen Lendman
GMO foods and ingrediants pose serious health hazards.
It doesn't surprise. Times policy is irresponsible. It's unprincipled. It's reprehensible. It's longstanding. It supports wealth, power and privilege.
It endorses what demands condemnation. It ignores GMO dangers. Doing so betrays its readers. More on that below.
GMO foods and ingredients are toxic. They're unsafe to eat. They harm human health. Independent scientific research proves it. Coverup and denial suppress what's vital to know.
Agribusiness giants want all animal and vegetable life forms patented. They want worldwide food control. They want it genetically engineered. They prioritize profits over human health.
GMOs saturate today's foods. The Center for Food Safety (CFS) "challeng(es) harmful food production technologies and promot(es) sustainable alternatives."
It calls genetically engineered plants and animals "one of the greatest and most intractable environmental challenges of the 21 century."
In America, up to 85% of corn, 94% of soybeans, 93% of canola, and 88% of cotton are genetically engineered. Over 80% of processed foods contain GMO ingredients.
They include dairy and animal products, vegetable oils, soft drinks, ice cream, margarine, peanut butter, tomato sauce, salad dressings, soups, crackers, and much more.
Studies prove these foods pose grave human health dangers. They include high toxicity risks, allergenicity, antibiotic resistance, immune-suppression, cancer, and numerous other diseases.
They're less nutritious. They're harmful ecologically. They cause uncontrolled biological pollution. They threaten microbial, plant and animal species with extinction.
They potentially contaminate all non-GMO life forms. Despite risks too great to ignore, Congress and regulatory agencies ignore them. They abdicate their authority doing so. They give agribusiness free reign. They let food giants poison us.
Consumers are part of an uncontrolled, unregulated mass human experiment. Doing so risks human health. Once GMO seeds infest an area, nothing known to science can reverse contamination.
Reliable scientific evidence is suppressed. People are uninformed in the dark. Rats fed GM potatoes have smaller livers, hearts, testicles and brains. Liver atrophy appears.
