The Just Label It! campaign was not created to ban GMOs. It was created to gain their acceptance. A hard nut to swallow, but essential.
Why is Monsanto able to walk away from all lawsuits for contamination of crops that they and the USDA say can be planted with little or no boundaries or restrictions whatsoever, while the farmers who swallow the lie bear the brunt of all lawsuits for inevitable contamination?
Geertson also explained that alfalfa is particularly prone to contamination because it is a perennial plant (a plant that lives for more than 2 years) that can be cross pollinated by insects that travel long distances and alfalfa seeds can lie dormant in the ground for 10 to 20 years. Unlike corn, cotton and soybeans that are annuals and do not grow as feral plants in the environment and need to be planted each year, alfalfa is a perennial. Therefore, alfalfa will be permanently contaminated.
It is possible that a mutated form of e-coli resulting from the cloning process used in creating GMOs could get into the gut of a person or animal that eats a transgenic plant.
Farmers whose crops have been contaminated by GMOs are suing. So, here comes the insurance industry to the rescue. Hey, they might as well get in on the act and make a buck off of the carnage.
You’ve got it, folks. American aliens are invading Mexico. Not with backpacks and children in tow, but on the winds of cross-pollination.
