Are there benefits to GM foods?

This undated 2010 handout photo provided by AquaBounty Technologies shows two same-age salmon, a genetically modified salmon, rear, and a non-genetically modified salmon, foreground. The Agriculture Department approved more genetically engineered crops in the last month, and the Food and Drug Administration could approve modified salmon for consumption in 2011. If the sale of salmon is approved, it will be the first time the government has allowed such modified animals to be marketed for human consumption. (AP Photo/AquaBounty Technologies)

As I listened to the morning news with segments about food dyes and their relationship to ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) in children I am thrilled to see food dyes exposed for what they really are…toxins unknowingly ingested by the masses!  I relate this limited exposé to the Toyota car recalls and the dangers of nuclear fall-out after the earthquake in Japan…it is usually much worse than what is first publicized.

How does this relate to the “GM” (genetically modified) foods?  Very little information is available to the public about the side effects of GM foods and the reason for the limited availability is a legal shield used by large companies like Monsanto and Syngenta.  Genetically engineered crops are protected by US Law rights.  Chances are we will never know the chemicals used to create GM produce like canola, corn, sugar beets (many used in the production of ethanol for gasoline), etc. as the chemicals are protected by patents.  Learn more about the laws protecting GM foods and the grassroots efforts to educate the public in this ABC news story…

One thought on “Are there benefits to GM foods?

  1. Monsanto and Syngenta want you to think these GM foods are safe yet there has been NO research done to support this claim. Feed the hungry, reduce the world’s starving populations…possibly, but only by using humans to “test” the chemicals to make GM foods. Dr. Phillip Bereano has studied GMO foods, produce and livestock for 30 years and a problem he sees is that there have never been any risk assessment studies done on GMO.
