Normally, I do a full article even when I include a video in a post, but the following video is over an hour long and I think it is so completely worth the watch that I would rather you get your info from there than from me.
Touching on the links between genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and toxins, allergies, infertility, infant mortality, immune dysfunction, stunted growth, accelerated aging, and death, this video covers many of the scientific health concerns of GMOS.
It also discusses how and why concerns of FDA scientists have been ignored.
The speaker, Jeffrey M. Smith, author of GMO best-seller Seeds of Deception and Genetic Roulette, also discusses the effects GMO-oriented policy and insincere international business practices have had on Indian farmers, thousands of whom have committed suicide after getting on the GMO bandwagon.
OK, I said I was keeping this short. I highly recommend watching the video below, for your children, for yourself, and for the other humans and living creatures on our planet. This is THE video to watch if you want to inform yourself on the matter of GMOs.
GMO’s or genetically engineered (GE) crops are one of the biggest concerns to life on the planet, in my opinion, yet we continue to just test them on the world population as a whole. Not the most uplifting thing, but without learning about this more, how can we ever work to address it?
Other than his great expertise, the nice thing about Jeffrey Smith is he gives you hope, that we can organize and work together to address GMOs.
