GMO FACT OF THE DAY
All of the 5 major GMO crops – corn, soy, canola, cotton & sugar beet – have been genetically engineered to be herbicide-tolerant. These GMOs are also known as Roundup Ready crops – able to survive being drenched with glyphosate-based Roundup. Farmers spray more, easily killing all the weeds, but putting their health and ours at risk. Humans are not Roundup Ready.
The agrichemical industry claims that their glyphosate-based chemicals are harmless to humans. They said the same thing about their Agent Orange herbicide used by the U.S. military during the Vietnam War. Now there are millions of Vietnamese civilians and Vietnam War Vets and their children, and their children’s children, that are being born with diseases caused by that supposedly “safe” herbicide.
Four generations affected from the exposure of one parent.
As a matter of fact, corporations like Monsanto and Dow have lied about the safety of every single one of their chemical products through the last 100 years, from Agent Orange to DDT to PCBs.
And they’re lying about the safety of GMOs and their more contemporary pesticides too.
