From the article ...
"And a 2004 report from the US National Academies of Sciences stated: 'To date, no adverse health effects attributed to genetic engineering have been documented in the human population.'”
This is a blasphemy.
There have been *numerous* independent studies (not done by them or by a lab that's in cahoots with them) that disprove this quote from the US National Academies of Science.

I hope this happens in the US soon.
I'll keep my fingers crossed; but, it took 9 years there and they weren't big supporters of it, in the first place.
In the mean time, I *will* continue to *not* buy food that has had its genes altered.

I love, love, love some of the comments people are making on the article ...
Jennifer Avenell Watling - Eugene, Oregon
"The FDA relies on testing done by the companies themselves. Those companies use bad testing methods which give them the test results they want. All independent research has shown GM foods to have very harmful affects. Right now dairy farmers and cattle ranchers are seeing a big increase in sterility and spontaneous abortions due to GM feed. That's just one scary part of the picture."

I've seen *hours* of footage on those poor cattle farmers. All the spontaneous abortions and how they'll switch the feed to be *non* genetically modified and the abortions *immediately* stop and STILL Monsanto *won't* listen to them. Then they'll switch back to the GM food and the abortions kick right back in. And on and on and on.
They're being bullied, beyond belief, by Monsanto.
I literally had to pick my jaw up off the floor during some of the footage I saw.

Aaron Wallace ...
"One thing not mentioned in this article is the effects of GM crops on the environment and the monopolies and strong-arming of small farmers, especially organic farmers by companies like Monsanto in the regulating of their bad seed. Probably not a s big of an issue in Cyprus, as it appears from this article, they are making a distinction between food on shelves, not being grown there."

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
