Real food in a global food crisis!

Genetic engineering began in the mid-1970s in the modern era.
Scientists believed the characteristics of organisms were simply hardwired or fixed in the genome.
Geneticists soon discovered that was not so – genome was fluid and not stable as was thought.
Genetic engineering in the laboratory is crude, imprecise and invasive.
The rogue [inserted] genes into a genome to make the GMO [genetically modified organism] can land anywhere, scrambling and mutating the host genome.
Ultimately, genetic modification doesn’t work and is also dangerous.
After more than 30 years of GMO’s, the case against them grows ever stronger, according to an article by Dr. Mae-Wan Ho of the Institute of Science in Society:
· "No increase in yields:
GM soy has decreased yields by up to 20 percent compared with non-GM soy, and up to 100 percent failures of GM cotton have been recorded in India.
· "No reduction in pesticide use:
USDA data showed that GM crops increased pesticide use by 50 million pounds from 1996 to 2003 in the United States.
· "Roundup herbicide:
This product is LETHAL [deadly] to frogs and toxic to human placental and embryonic cells.
It is used on more than 80 percent of all GM crops planted in the world.
· "GM crops harm wildlife:
Wastes from GM corn impairs the growth of aquatic insects.
· "GM food and feed have been linked to deaths and sicknesses:
Both in the fields of India, and in lab tests around the world.
Growing GM crops will not counteract the soaring rates of hunger, poverty, food prices, and environmental disasters that are occurring.
What is needed is a fundamental change in farming practices that eliminates GM crops and support small-scale organic farms instead.
Once again, Jesus Christ was accurate in the smallest detail.
There is coming a food shortage, but it will be man-made???
Monsanto Chemical is one of the leaders in destroying the food chain.
They control the agribusiness in America and many foreign countries.
GMOs are rendering humans and animals sterile. Come Lord Jesus.
