From, Scientists Warn EPA Over Monsanto’s GMO Crop Failures, Dangers,
Click the link above for the full story.A group of scientists is calling for major federal action in order to deal with the threat posed by Monsanto’s GMO crops, now petitioning the EPA to address the issue head on. The groups of 22 academic corn experts are drawing attention to the immense failure of Monsanto’s genetically modified corn, which is developing mutated and resistant insects as a result of its widespread usage. Corn is critical not only as a food staple, but is heavily used in ethanol production, animal feed, and much more. As GM corn becomes the norm, currently taking over 94 percent of the supply, these scientists are seriously concerned about the future of corn production.
At any rate, the notion that GMO crops and foods are safe, posing little or no risk, is a view that does not withstand scrutiny. There are calls to label foods that contain GMOs. Clearly, labeling is not enough. A ban is required until GMO technology as it is actually used is proven to be safe as a result of extensive independent (not corporate) testing. Currently, while GMOs may hold promise, it seems the technology is being abused by the corporations that use it.0 Thanks, 0 Likes, 0 Dislikes
