Do you know? I still don’t know much on genetically modified plants, animals and people

Plants were first genetically modified (OGM) in 1975. The researchers confirmed that their impact on the environment is None of their concerns. Now every living creatures is impacted and suffering.

Actually, tomato was modified in 1963 in Davis University in order to withstand harvesting by machine in California: they are the ugly square tomatoes.

Do you know that the multinational OMG, like Monsanto and Bayer, first prepare the land by spreading all kinds of pesticides used in the 50’s and 60’s, particularly the new Glyphosate, proven to cause cancer? Now if these plants are supposed to be resistant to a certain kind of bugs, why spread pesticides?

Do you know that wind is contaminating the traditional seeds with OMG plants? Even if 2 km radius, the wind contaminate the traditional peasants harvests

Do you know that animals and insects are currently genetically modified? A cow can now produce milk adapted to children? Male Mosquitoes are modified to kill all female mosquitoes and their offspring when impregnated?

Do you know that 10% of all cultivated land in the world are OMG and 80% of the OMG lands are located in North America?

Do you know that 40% of exported OMG come from the USA? Argentina has tripled its production of OMG in the last decade.

Do you know that what the mono-culture of OMG cannot be consumed by the poor people in Africa that they claim to have in mind to feed. They focus on cotton, soja, corn and flowers…

Do you know that the primary reason for modifying grown food is to be able to be handled by the harvesting machines?

I wonder: are research still going on the effects of these modifications on the health and safety of the consumers?
