Golden Rice Is a Sham GMO Invention

Golden Rice Is a Sham GMO Invention

“Golden rice” is a genetically modified rice product with murky beginnings. Calgene (the company that created Flavr-Savr tomatoes genetically modified with fish genes) held the first patent. It, and its inventor, Christine K. Shewmaker, apparently transferred to Monsanto when the company bought Calgene. Later on, the patent turned up at Syngenta under the names of…

GM Corrupts Our DNA Code

GM Corrupts Our DNA Code

GMOs are part of so-called “synthetic biology,” an attempt to synthesize and change the code of all living things so everything can be bought and sold as a product. But genetic modification obliterates millions of years of adaptation to the environment. Whether you look at it as evolution or the work of God, monkeying with…

Outcomes of Genetic Engineering Are Not Predictable

Outcomes of Genetic Engineering Are Not Predictable

Genetic engineering outcomes are inherently unpredictable. Credible scientists have proven that genetically altered DNA can be horizontally transmitted—say, from your food to your gut bacteria. And while millions of people worry about what scientists are doing with GMOs in laboratories, a new angle has emerged: do-it-yourself “scientists” bioengineering in their basement. They’re using a kit…

Genetic Modification is Not the Same As What People Have Been Doing for Thousands of Years

Genetic Modification is Not the Same As What People Have Been Doing for Thousands of Years

Farmers have been crossbreeding plants for thousands of years to get traits they want, such as sweetness in peaches or big petals on roses. But this breeding for a trait, done naturally with the plants’ own pollen, is far different than forcibly mixing the DNA of one species with another. Natural breeding never adds or…

GM Promotes Monoculture

GM Promotes Monoculture

Genetic modification is being done on hybrid plants that already lack genetic diversity. Living things need genetic diversity to adapt to a changing environment. Widespread planting of relatively few GM crops in place of different types of crops decreases diversity, and increases the chance of crop failure. The Irish potato famine is a lesson in…

There is No Consensus that GM Food is Safe to Eat—or Safe for the Environment

There is No Consensus that GM Food is Safe to Eat—or Safe for the Environment

The US government may have determined that GMOs are safe, but government scientists haven’t. Reports indicate that government bureaucrats are silencing government scientists if their data conflicts with the government’s position that GMOs are safe (reports: 1, 2, 3, and 4). At least one lawsuit has been filed on behalf of USDA employees who have…
