Get Informed About GMOs

We all have a stake in the outcome of the SHAKA Movement challenge.

Dr. Harold Keyser’s well-written critique of Dr. Don Huber’s work reads just like the Monsanto protection language of Dr. Kevin Folta....

considering what Monsanto / Dow did in Viet Nam & still to this day is getting away with,,, why would any sane person only wonder why they are not in jail? let alone attempting to control the global food supply?,, I find it outrageous no one does violence on these people,,, for what they have done is leave a trail of death behind them across the planet.... we see it now on our tumor covered turtles.

The Sierra Club urges caution on open air testing of GMOs and using them:

"Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) or genetically engineered (GE) foods have the potential to cause a variety of health problems. For example, they may produce new allergens and toxins, and spread harmful traits to non-GMO crops. In addition, at least one major environmental impact of genetic engineering has already reached critical proportions: overuse of herbicide-tolerant GE crops has spurred an increase in herbicide use and an epidemic of herbicide-resistant "superweeds," which will lead to even more herbicide use. The long-term impacts of GMOs are unknown, and once released into the environment they cannot be recalled."

"Sadly, the ability to test GMOs independently is severely limited. According to Scientific American, several large Agritech companies explicitly forbid the use of their seeds in independent research. Instead, the companies pick the favorable studies to highlig

Harold, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that whenever corporations lobby their way into running the agencies that regulate them the result is systemic abuse. Monsanto's EPA ignores the fact that all their pesticide tests are done with pure active chemicals in laboratory controlled environments. The poisons they actually spray on us include carrying agents that drastically change the absorption rates. These poisons also mix in the field andin our bodies, creating chemical cocktails the danger of which are completely untested. It's really simple, we don't trust you. Hawaii, more than anyplace in the world, is being bombarded with unproven chemicals and the well being of our children are at stake. Thankfully the Hawaii State Constitution gives unique rights of protection to public trust natural resources and before they are able to take those rights away we will force them to prove they are not doing harm. When they prove no harm then the moratorium will be lifted. Simple.

I concur fully – take the time to get informed. And, take note of the source of the information you find. If that information is from the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, be aware what Quackwatch**** has to say about this organization, and know that their membership is a whopping 162 in all of the US (1 in Hawaii). Compare with the American Medical Association 2012 membership of 217,490, and the AMA’s position on GM food being safe. After comparing, which do you think is more credible? If that information is from the Genetic Roulette movie based on claims by Jeffery Smith, know that his expertise and training is in a yogic flying technique and ballroom dance instruction. And, oh yes, a self-published book on genetic engineering. Compare each of his claims with the actual evidence from published science at AcademicsReview****. After comparing, which do you think is more credible? Everyone should ask for scientific evidence regarding claims of harm.
