America's Silent Killing Fields - 2009 Update On April 1, 2008, I published the following article. Here it is again, because I believe that this information needs to be in the forefront of our minds when confronting the GMO invasion of our food supply. At the end of the article is a current update on the status of the GMO takeover. We are facing a takeover so complete that it makes a tsunami look tame in comparison.

Link Found Between GMOs & Deadly Tuberculosis Naked viral DNA (virus without its protein coat) is infectious and may well be taken up by mammalian cells including our own! In addition, viral DNA has been shown to resist digestion in the gut of mice, and enters the bloodstream to infect white blood cells, spleen and liver cells. One such virus most commonly used as a promoter in genetic engineering is the cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV).

NAIS, Monsanto, and the Genetic Altering and Patenting of Animal Breeds If NAIS goes through, our groceries will be filled with genetically modified meat, and of course, like the GMO grains and veggies, will require no labeling.
