GM Foods Poisoning Berliners

I heard a UK cabinet minister extolling the virtues of GM foods recently.  Someone had done a real job on him.  He was convinced GM was the new way to solve the earth’s troubles, and its opponents were a bunch of idiotic Luddites.


Here’s another view.

By Dr. Mercola
Last year, doctors at Sherbrooke University Hospital in Quebec made the disturbing discovery that Bt-toxin from genetically engineered Bt corn in fact accumulates in the human body—contrary to industry assurances. The toxin was identified in 93 percent of pregnant women tested; 80 percent of umbilical blood in their babies; and 67 percent of non-pregnant women.
The study blew a giant hole in safety claims over genetically engineered Bt crops.
Now, results from a German study shows that people who have no direct contact with agriculture have significant concentrations of glyphosate in their urine. It’s becoming quite apparent that genetically engineered crops are a source of multiple toxins, in addition to having been found to contain far lower levels of nutrients. So much for saving the world from starvation.

Glyphosate Found in City Dwellers’ Urine

Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup, which is sprayed in large quantities on genetically engineered, so-called “Roundup Ready,” crops. Such crops are genetically engineered to withstand otherwise lethal applications of the herbicide.
According to the German journal Ithaka1, every single urine sample collected from city dwellers around Berlin tested positive for glyphosate, with values ranging from 0.5 to 2 nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml)—that’s between five and 20 times the permissible upper limit for glyphosate in German drinking water, which is set at 0.1 ng/ml.

TAP – Glyphosate is used on one third of all Germany’s farmland.

    Spelman is agricultural minister (by another name) and has a GM lobby company. So the person who decides if we have GM crops, runs a GM lobby company with her husband and her clients are GM food companies.

    No conflict of interest there then.

    It’s no doubt her feeding GM propaganda to the cabinet, all approved by David Cameron.

    “all approved by David Cameron.”

    A modern day Ted Heath.
