Garden Fresh Food And Your Families Health – Say No To GMO Corn

gmo-corn Food Alert Source Document: Russia Suspends Use of Genetically Modified Corn
Better to error on the safe side than suffer health problems cause by GMF(Genetically Modified Foods).

Russia’s consumer-rights watchdog, Rospotrebnadzor, said it has suspended the import and use of a genetically engineered corn made by Monsanto Co. (MON) following a study’s allegations that the crop causes cancer.

The study, conducted by the University of Caen in France and published last week, said that rats fed over a two year period with the U.S. crop-biotechnology company’s genetically modified NK603 corn, marketed under the Roundup Ready brand name, developed more tumors and other severe diseases than a test group fed with regular corn.

The study also said that rats fed with NK603 and exposed to Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller suffered from more pathologies than the test group. The corn variety is genetically engineered to withstand glyphosate, a weedkiller that Monsanto sells under the Roundup label.

The French government ordered its food safety agency to review quickly the study and said it would seek an immediate ban on European Union imports of the crop if the study’s findings were deemed conclusive.

FYI: Some of the chemicals used on GMO (Roundup Read) corn are: Roundup, Roundup WeatherMAX, Harness, TripleFLEX, Harness Xtra, Degree Xtra, Micro-Tech, Lariat, Bullet.

Monsanto’s Roundup Ready plant list includes: Roundup Ready® Soybeans, alfalfa, corn, cotton, spring canola, sugar-beets and winter canola.

  1. It’s really very complicated in this busy life to listen news on Television, therefore I simply
    use web for that purpose, and take the hottest news.

  2. I will have to agree with you Pobept. Monsanto is not reliable and I do not trust them. I say no to GMO and preferr to eat heirloom. It gives me hope that everyone can make an impact by being ecologically conscientious consumer. I am glad that Europe is starting to take a stand on the subject.

    • Re puppiesinparadise Thanks for visiting my little blog and for your comment(s). I think it is only fair to say I neither love or hate Monsanto as a company, with that said, I have more issues with Monsanto’s chemical division (makers of Roundup for one product) than their GM(O) division or seed breeding division. Monsanto’s past 10 or so years of forward looking Seed development division has turned back the clock, re-looking food producing plant seed and are becoming a world leader in ‘Organic’ hybrid plant breeding (Not GM or GMO) hybrid seed development.
      I must also point out that to my knowledge Monsanto and all of it’s many products Monsanto has complied with and were government approved by USDA, FDA, using technology of that period as being safe when used as labeled.

      Happy safe, productive gardening

  3. I’m against GMO foods, but not only for the alleged health problems they cause. But I do think ‘we’ need to be careful about knee jerk responses, based on not-so-good science. This study is apparently not-so-good. Climate change deniers are relying on crap science, & we rightly call them out for it. Which means we must be rigorous ourselves, in the science we use to backup our arguments — lest we look as stupid as they do, when they glom onto anything that backs up their preferred narrative.

      In my opinion, everyone that consumes food, and that’s most of us, should know as much as possible about where and how their food is grown and processed.
      I would rather error on the save side than to find out in later research that I have contributed to damaging my families health.
      Monsanto is not well known for the reliability of their research and safety reports on products and chemicals they have developed and sell as being safe for humans health.
      Don’t forget that Monsanto was a leading manufacturer of products such as the insecticide DDT, PCBs which were used as electrical insulators, and the defoliant Agent Orange. Monsanto assured the public for 10’s of years that these products were human safe chemicals.

      Say no to GMO, eat heirloom, garden foods for a long healthy life.
