 The Truth about the Food we Eat.

The Food Companies Are KILLING Us!

Make NO mistake about it. The FOOD companies are KILLING us and WE are not even aware of it.

Please educate yourself about the dangers of genetically Engineering foods. Your health is at risk!

 Genetic Engineering - What is it?

 Abbreviations:

 GE = Genetically Engineered, which is exactly the same as
GMO = Genetically Modified.

Genetic engineering (GE) means artificial manipulation of the hereditary substance. GE-foods are widely used in America, especially the US, and they are now spreading all over the world. Yet they may be hazardous to the health and may harm the environment.

Genetically engineered food is food that is produced from genetically engineered crops or livestock. Genetic engineering is a process whereby genes from one organism are spliced into the DNA of another organism, creating a new organism that is not possible through traditional breeding methods. Genes from different species, or even different kingdoms, are inserted into host organisms to create traits not found in the original host organism, such as herbicide tolerance or insect resistance. The effects of altering one gene on the host genome, and on the ecosystem into which the organism is released, are unknown. Genetically engineered foods are not labeled.

Genetic engineering is the science of modification of genes in cells. Genes are collections of DNA molecules that comprise the code that determines the function and reproductive pattern of cells. Together with hormones and other chemical messengers, developed and naturally recombined over millions of years, genes determine everything about an organism.

Genetic engineers modify gene patterns in cells by implanting genes or DNA from one organism into another organism.

 

 

 

Commercial application of genetical engineering for production of foods cannot be scientifically justified and carries with it unpredictable and potentially serious consequences.

The reasons are as follows: The knowledge about DNA is too incomplete to make it possible to predict and understand all consequences of genetic engineering.
(For this reason commercial application of genetic engineering of any organism especially for non-contained usage is unjustifiable blind and unscientific experimentation. This includes plants, trees, bacteria, insects and animals.) The knowledge about the health safety of GE foods is seriously incomplete. The knowledge about the environmental safety of GE organisms is seriously incomplete. There is no need for GE organisms for feeding the world or solving nutritional deficiency problems.

Furthermore, food biotechnology perpetuates environmentally unsustainable industrial agriculture. It is based on chemicals of various kinds that are demonstrated harmful to the health of the consumer and to the environment.

Genetic engineering represents an intervention with unprecedented depth and power. Radical artificial alterations of the code of life, the genetic makeup, can be created. Such changes may have very complex consequences on the properties of the organism. Therefore it is most important that science has very good knowledge about how genes function before GE products are released.

Once released into nature the genetically engineered organisms and their altered genes cannot be recalled. They may spread widely and uncontrollably century after century, yes indefinitely. Scientists have warned for a number of potential hazards, some of which may be serious

 

Genetic engineering may cause the creation of unexpected harmful substances. This includes poisons, mutagens (substances causing genetic changes that may be harmful) and carcinogens (substances causing cancer).

DANGERS OF GENETICALLY ENGINEERED FOODS
The scientific facts demonstrating the need for an immediate worldwide ban
Because living organisms are highly complex, genetic engineers cannot possibly predict all of the effects of introducing new genes into them. This is the case for even the simplest bacterium, not to mention more complex plants and animals.

THIS IS BECAUSE:

  • the introduced gene may act differently when working within its new host
  • the original genetic intelligence of the host will be disrupted
  • the new combination of the host genes and the introduced gene will have unpredictable effects; and therefore
  • there is no way of knowing the overall, long-term effect of genetically engineered foods on the health of those who eat them.

THE FOLLOWING ARE SOME OF THE FACTS:

 

  • Unnatural gene transfers from one species to another are dangerous. Biotechnology companies erroneously claim that their manipulations are similar to natural genetic changes or traditional breeding techniques. However, the cross-species transfers being made, such as between fish and tomatoes, or between other unrelated species, would not happen in nature and may create new toxins, diseases, and weaknesses. In this risky experiment, the general public is the guinea-pig.
  • Biotechnology companies also claim their methods are precise and sophisticated.
    In fact, the process of inserting genes is quite random and can damage normal genes. Genetic research shows that many weaknesses in plants, animals, and humans have their origin in tiny imperfections in the genetic code. Therefore, the random damage resulting from gene insertion will inevitably result in side-effects and accidents. Scientists have assessed these risks to be substantial. (Refs: Palmiter, R.D. et al (1986) ANNUAL REVIEW OF GENETICS 20: 465; Inose, T. et al (1995) INT. JOUR. FOOD SCIENCE TECH. 30:141.)
  • Unpredictable health damaging effects.
    When genetic engineers insert a new gene into any organism there are "position effects" which can lead to unpredictable changes in the pattern of gene expression and genetic function. The protein product of the inserted gene may carry out unexpected reactions and produce potentially toxic products. There is also serious concern about the dangers of using genetically engineered viruses as delivery vehicles (vectors) in the generation of transgenic plants and animals. This could destabilize the genome, and also possibly create new viruses, and thus dangerous new diseases. (Refs: Green, A.E. et al (1994) SCIENCE 263:1423; Osbourn, J.K. et al (1990) VIROLOGY 179:921.)
  • Genetically engineered products carry more risks than traditional foods.
    The process of genetic engineering can thus introduce dangerous new allergens and toxins into foods that were previously naturally safe. Already, one genetically engineered soybean was found to cause serious allergic reactions, and bacteria genetically engineered to produce large amounts of the food supplement,
  •  Increased pollution of food and water supply.
    More than 50% of the crops developed by biotechnology companies have been engineered to be resistant to herbicides. Use of herbicide-resistant crops will lead to a threefold increase in the use of herbicides, resulting in even greater pollution of our food and water with toxic agrochemicals. (Ref: Goldberg, R.J. (1994) WEED TECHNOLOGY 6:647.)
  • Health-damaging effects caused by genetic engineering will continue forever.
    Unlike chemical or nuclear contamination, genetic pollution is self-perpetuating. It can never be reversed or cleaned up; genetic mistakes will be passed on to all future generations of a species.
  • Inadequate government regulation.
    Biotech companies claim that government regulatory bodies will protect consumers. However DDT, Thalidomide, L-tryptophan, etc. were approved by U.S. regulators with tragic results. Recently it was found that 80% of supermarket milk contained traces of either medicines, illegal antibiotics used on farms, or hormones, including genetically engineered bovine growth hormone (rbGH). The facts show that regulators are not protecting the public adequately. (Ref: Epstein, S.S. (1996) INT. JOUR. HEALTH SERVICES, 26:173.)
  • Ethical concerns.
    Transferring animal genes into plants raises important ethical issues for vegetarians and religious groups. It may also involve animal experiments which are unacceptable to many people.
    11- (John B. Fagan, Ph.D. Professor of Molecular Biology Maharishi University of Management )
  •  Gene transfer across species and competition from new species damaging the environment.
    When new genetic information is introduced into plants, bacteria, insects or other animals, it can easily be passed into related organisms, through processes such as cross pollination. This process has already created "super weeds". Existing species can also be displaced from the ecosystem with disastrous effects, as happened with genetically modified Klebsiella soil bacteria. (Ref: Holms, M.T. and Ingam, E.R. (1994) Bulletin of the Ecological Society of America (Supplement), 75:97) 11- (John B. Fagan, Ph.D. Professor of Molecular Biology Maharishi University of Management )
