The Most Hard-Hitting GMO Report Ever Aired By The Mainstream Media

During what is possibly the most hard-hitting GMO report ever aired by mainstream media, Max Goldberg states: “No long-term studies have ever been done on humans, but when you look at the studies that have been done on animals, it’s pretty appalling. You’re talking about liver damage and kidney damage and when they fed it to hamsters, the third generation of hamsters weren’t able to produce babies, so there’s real safety issues.”
While to alternative news reporters and readers this might not be new information, it is rare that the mainstream media has covered the topic with such openness. The hard-hitting discussion between Carol Alt and Max Goldberg aired on FOX’s ‘A Healthy You’ program. Is this another positive step forward in raising awareness about the dangers of GMOs? Certainly.
Goldberg’s statements refer to a 2007 study published in the journal Archives of Environmental Contamination and Technology that revealed that rats who were fed Monsanto’s MON863 corn for more than 90 days began to show “signs of toxicity” in the liver and kidneys.[1] While it is never certain that what happens in an animal study will happen to humans, rats and humans have a very high number of similarities in biology which is why they are so often used in studies. While it is my opinion that the ethics of such studies are not sound, it is clear to see why they are used.
Another study that reveals the dangers of GMO’s was published in 2010 by Russian biologist Alexey V. Surov. The study tested the effects of Monsanto’s genetically modified soy on hamsters. The study monitored three generations of hamsters over a two year period and found that third generation hamsters not only lost the ability to reproduce, but even began growing hair inside their mouths. [2]
We know for certain that GMO’s have dangerous side effects on animals and we do know that there has not been substantial analysis done on GMO’s to determine their safety for humans. It only seems natural that we would stop the production of GMO’s and instead employ smarter agricultural practices instead of modifying nature in dangerous ways. At the very least, it should be mandatory that every GMO product be labelled so consumers can clearly see what they are buying.
“The real big issue in our country Carol, is that genetically modified food’s are not labeled, so people do not know that they are eating genetically modified foods. Over 60 countries around the world require GMOs to be labeled but the US does not,” Goldberg added. “And why is that? According to the Food & Water Watch, the Ag-Bio tech industry, which owns all these GMOs, has spent $572 million on campaign contributions and lobbying to make sure that they don’t get labeled.”

  1. The question can be "who are the shareholders, the reals decision makers of society like Monsanto " Who have big interest to destroy the north american population in three generations ?? Why poison his own people ?? If this is a plan of a enemy of USA, that is very intelligent !! No country has a strong enough army to beat USA but by the food, it will be very easy to destroy USA in two or three generation !!! this is the Achilles heel of USA, with the greed for easy money (lobbying) it's easy to buy politicians and décision makers and do what no army can do : destroy the USA !!
    The american people must learn to take decision by themselves and don't eat this dangerous food, their government and their decision makers don't protect them to this danger!!
    Who has interest to destroy the USA and his real heart, his people without be seen?? this is the good question
    And the second question is : Who will be a good american and will take care of the american people and globally occidental people!!!
    Is the dollar can destroy the people who has created it ?? Now it's a question of consciousness for everybody and mostly the decision makers of USA ...
    XD
