Monsanto controls much of the world's food supply at the expense of food democracy worldwide. This site is dedicated to empowering citizens of the world to take action against Monsanto & it's enablers like the FDA, USDA, EPA, GMA, BIO, and the processed food companies that use Monsanto's products.

RT America: Monsanto makes rats grow tumors; are humans next?

In a recent French lab study, rats that were fed genetically modified foods had a tendency to develop tumors and suffer severe organ damage. GMO’s have become a hot topic in the United States and in California people are demanding GMO food be labeled in the state. Many consumers feel humans will suffer the same fate as the lab rats and are hoping to put a stop to GMO food. Alexis Baden-Mayer, political director for the Organic Consumers Association joins us with more on the startling consequences and why Americans should be aware if they are buying GMO foods or not.

The Occupy Monsanto RTP protest in North Carolina was small in comparison to many this week, but many powerful outcomes have occurred. One woman drove three hours to attend over her concern for what toxins could be in the baked goods she sells to her customers, and others to demand that foods containing GMO’s must be labeled, but it was the children that attended who made the greatest statement of the day. The childrens protest signs simply said “I am not a lab rat, NO GMO’s” but that’s exactly what Monsanto and their affiliates have done to them and the entire population of the world.

The Roundup Daily: World-wide protests push for labeling genetically engineered foods

vicky diaz roundup daily The Roundup Daily: World wide protests push for labeling genetically engineered foods University Student Newspaper Roundup Daily Protest NM New Mexico State University La Cruces GMO Labeling gmo Demonstration Decontamination Event College Peter Smith, Monday, September 17, 2012 5:55 pm | Updated: 4:20 pm, Thu Sep 20, 2012.

Over 75 locations held protests working against companies, such as Monsanto, connected to the global trade of genetically engineered foods, also known as GMOs. The network conducting the protests is known as Occupy Monsanto and hopes to pass legislation for labeling GMOs.

GMOs are genetically modified organisms altered through the use of genetic engineering. Genetically modifying organisms have been criticized as tempering with nature and have raised ecological and economic concerns in the past, according to Lesley Hunt, Ph.D. in the agribusiness and economics research unit at the University of Lincoln, Canterbury, New Zealand.

On the other hand, according to the World Health Organization: “GM foods currently available on the international market have passed risk assessments and are not likely to present risks for human health. In addition, no effects on human health have been shown as a result of the consumption of such foods by the general population in the countries where they have been approved. Continuous use of risk assessments based on the Codex principles and, where appropriate, including post market monitoring, should form the basis for evaluating the safety of GM foods.”

The primary concern of Occupy Monsanto is the use of Glyphosate (Roundup), one of the most toxic herbicides and third most common cause of pesticide related sicknesses for agricultural workers according to Greenpeace, and its overuse on resistant GMOs.

Because GMOs have higher resistance to the herbicide, Occupy Monsanto says farmers will use the substance more liberally and the consumer may be put at risk.

According to the press release on occupy-monsanto.com, “Occupy Monsanto means to confront the industrial agriculture system head-on.”

Danielle Lapiano, an undergraduate student working on her bachelor degree in public health from New Mexico State University headed the protest in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Lapiano said, “occupy Monsanto is trying to get GMOs labeled. It just makes people sick.” She said most GMO products are not properly labeled or are misleading to the consumer.

Lapiano said she came out to “spread the word” on the dangers of GMOs. She set up a table in the Corbett Center Student Union and wore a full body bio-suit to emphasize the dangers of GMOs.

Rica Madrid, a member of Occupy Monsanto accused politicians and corporations of supporting GMOs at the expense of public health, saying, “People are stirred by the evidence that GMO foods compromise human health. Politicians and their sponsoring corporations ignore public outcry over GMOs to protect huge profits over health.”

Since GMOs’ introduction to the food supply in the mid 1990s, food allergies have expanded, according to Center for Disease Control data.

My name is Danielle Lapiano. I held an Occupy Monsanto action at New Mexico State University’s Student Union Corbett Center from 2pm to 6pm pretty much by myself. I wish I would have held it during lunch hours but I still managed to gather over 110 signatures for Organic Consumers Association “truth-in-labeling” and “Confined Animal Feeding Operations” CAFO’s labeled. Not bad for just me and one other person from Public Health Student Organization…who showed up at 5:00pm to help. I was interviewed by the student newspaper… I will post a link to that too. Of course he didn’t quote me exactly how I told him too… but it wasn’t too bad. Lol I am still working on more signatures.
