Scary Science

Genetic modification is what I call scary science. We are eating food that has it's own digestive system. Science has played with DNA and played with DNA until some of our plants can produce their own pesticide. Read about cabbage with scorpion DNA. Does that sound safe or appetizing to you? It sounds like something from a weird Sci-Fi movie years ago. Most of the credit for genetic modification should go to Monsanto. Monsanto has an interesting power in this country. The Monsanto home page declares that the only business Monsanto Company is in; is agriculture. Consider this fact. President Obama declared for the first time in the history of the world, the direction for the US, is away from being an agrarian society. To simplify is simple. If we as a society are not involved in our own food production, we will be utterly dependent upon the mercy of a food supplier. Since less than 2% of the population is all that now farms, the farmers have a huge supply and demand issue or opportunity! Monsanto has declared themselves to be a partner to the farmers. I'm guessing, the farmers do the plowing and tilling of the land, pay the mortgage, insurance and the taxes on that land, pay for the Monsanto seeds and herbicides and pesticides, then do the harvesting if the weather has warranted a harvest, then take the seeds back to their supplier, because the seeds are registered and trademarked and belong to Monsanto or a subsidiary thereof. That's what Monsanto calls "partnership!" This huge company has all but eradicated corn as G-d created it, and they have a trademark on wheat, canola, soy beans, alfalfa, and more. At first glance one might not realize the significance of this list, but let me write more. Remember when the reports were coming in about all the honey bee colonies dying? Could it be that genetically modified pollen is not healthy for bees? Now back to the significance of the list. First, consider everything that contains these items. How many groceries do not contain high fructose corn syrup? That is just the tip of the iceberg in regard to our food supply. How many of our groceries do not contain corn, wheat, or soy oil? Very few, but again that's not my main worry. Do you realize everything in the meat case existed on grains or some form of agricultural crop before entering our food supply? Everything in the egg and dairy case was produced by a creature that requires sustenance to provide eggs and milk. We have no idea what the long term effect of eating meat from an animal that ate Genetically Modified grain. Genetic modification has only been around for about the past 30 years. It does make me wonder about the increase of autism in that same time frame. Do you suppose all this gluten issue is really about genetically modified grains? And that sustenance is grain, hay, and lush pastures, which are Monsanto's only business! Milk is required for cheese, butter, ice cream, yogurt, sour cream, dips, and many soups and sauces. Our food is being altered, the food supply is being manipulated, and the control of the food has fallen into the hands of a very few and that very few have partnered with The Power of Genetic Modification.
And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and G-d saw that it was good. Torah of Holy Scripture
