DailyDirt: Frankenfoods Are Going To Kill Us All! Or End World Hunger. Whichevers.

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

As the human population grows, we'll need to produce more food in the next 40 years than has ever been produced by agriculture over the last 8,000 years. Advances in biotechnology will enable us to do this, but genetically modified organisms (GMOs) aren't always beneficial. We'll need to look more closely at the safety of GMOs and the unintended consequences of genetic engineering, but some time in the future, the world will need to accept some amount of frankenfood to maintain our food supply. Here are just a few informative links on the topic of genetically modified foods. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    It is worth noting that Monsanto recently bought Blackwater - The largest private corporate army.

    That should give pause for consideration for anyone that thinks Monsanto is doing the world a favor with GMO. Suicide seeds = genocide. Nothing has killed more people throughout history than famine.

    One of the leading causes of death in the US is cancer and Roundup does cause cancer. Meanwhile, there have been over 400 effective treatments for cancer discovered in the last 100 years including Royal Raymond Rife's cure for all disease. Some of those cures worked 100% of the time.

    Google "population council" and see who owns that. The pharmaceutical industry and oil industry were started by the same John D Rockafeller. David Rockafeller was named the "over-population czar years ago.
