(NaturalNews) Monsanto is close to single-handedly controlling seeds around the world, and hence, global food sources. A good mix of lobbying, influential members in the administration and successful spin doctoring appear to be the key to world take over. But don't worry; they say it is for our best and it will even save the planet!
Over the past decades, food has been replaced with rocket fuel, without objection by the FDA and with limited consumer awareness. One of the most unwanted intruders on the list of foods is genetically modified food.
According to Monsanto, however, its genetically modified crops not only represent the cure for world hunger, but also help diminish the problem of climate change. Because GM crops do not need to be tilled or require plowing, Monsanto claims it can lock carbon dioxide in the soil and therefore should get carbon credits! Listening to Monsanto, one could be mistaken to believe GMs are what the world has been waiting for.
But how did Monsanto get this far?
The official eight million US dollars spent on lobbying in 2010 are part of the success story, but their more effective strategy is being the fox in the chicken coop. The Obama administration is littered with Monsanto missionaries. Former Monsanto vice president Michael Taylor is a senior consultant to the US Food and Drug Administration. Islam Siddiqui, vice president of CropLife (Monsanto-funded lobbying group), is a negotiator for the US Trade Representative on agriculture. Roger Beachy, a former director of a Monsanto-funded plant science center, is the director of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture. These and many more GM lovers switch jobs back and forth between the government and Monsanto.
The dangers of meddling with nature, altering the planet, using enormous amounts of herbicides for crops, and causing negative health effects on humans and animals are simply not discussed. Instead, the powerful food elite have zero concerns about playing god. In the world of GMs, they get to be just that - blending daisies with pigs, fish with horses, oak trees with sheep or what not. This process is called biolistics (injecting cells with genetic information). What will happen if this gene gun (biolistic) technology will keep spreading until the planet suffocates? We are not far off. Monsanto has infiltrated North and South America, Asia directly, and numerous countries indirectly (cross-pollination).
The mad theory to have Monsanto run our entire food supply is almost reality.
There are millions of ethical and health questions that remain unanswered as Monsanto is continuing to gun species and plants. Humanity and science alike simply have no concept on what type of fire-spitting dragon they have at their hands. The lunatic takeover of nature will equal a death of the world we know today - all in the name of corporate profit. And not only may we see a tomato with a fish head, no, but the disappearance of the naturally occurring species will also most likely continue at record speeds, such as the vanishing of bees that may be related to GMs. Also, the ground may be incapable of growing natural products, as soil contamination may occur with more than 1600 microorganisms potentially wiped out by GM proliferation.
Monsanto may have the code to transform the planet in the coming decades, if we let them. There is a massive outrage against GMOs in the world today, but is it enough to stop the powers in charge?
The Monsanto marketing spin on GM use is remarkable, so are the profits. Imagine, no farmer allowed to plant natural seeds, but rather bioengineered Monsanto seeds? Welcome to the world according to Monsanto.
