Monsanto - de GMO zaad monopolist


Al vaak genoemd op de site, het bedrijf dat de wereldvoedselmarkt in handen wil krijgen. Die het voor elkaar heeft gekregen om patenten op zaden te krijgen en zelfs boeren die last kregen van vervuiling van hun gewassen door hun GMO zaad voor de rechter daagden wegens schending van hun rechten en zelfs de meeste zaken wonnen.

Een dappere Canadese boer (Percy Schmeiser) kon dit onrecht niet aanzien en knokte tot de laatste snik door en de David vs Goliath strijd won.

Het bedrijf is verder samen met de Amerikaanse overheid patenthouder van een zogenaamd suicide gen waardoor de landbouwer na ieder oogst opnieuw zaad zal moeten kopen.

Het gevaar van dit soort methodes is dat wilde gewassen besmet kunnen raken en dus op termijn ook kunnen verdwijnen en de wereld afhankelijk wordt van deze monopolist.

Beheers je de voeding dan beheers je wereld, dat weten ze in Amerika maar al te goed. De energie markt (olie) dreigt men te verliezen door woekerprijzen en speculatie dus dan wordt voeding je volgende doel mbt wereldmacht. Wist je dat er alleen al in Alaska voor 200 jaar olie ligt dus dat we met zijn allen voor de gek worden gehouden, er is olie zat en ook het CO2 verhaal rammelt aan alle kanten.

Restanten van Monsanto's Roundup produkten in voeding veroorzaaken celschade

Monsanto's Roundup Residues in GM Food Cause Cell Damage

Glyphosate formulations induce apoptosis and necrosis in human umbilical, embryonic, and placental cells. Moreover, the proprietary mixtures available on the market could cause cell damage and even death around residual levels to be expected, especially in food and feed derived from R formulation-treated crops.

BT katoenzaad van Monsanto doodt niet alleen de grond maar ook boeren (zelfmoord)

Monsanto's Bt Cotton Kills the Soil as Well as Farmers

Biosafety refers to ensuring that GMO’s do not harm the environment or health. The soil, its fertility, and the organisms which maintain the fertility of soil are a vital aspect of the environment, especially in the context of food and agricultural production. A recent scientific study carried out by Navdanya, compared the soil of fields where Bt-cotton had been planted for 3 years with adjoining fields with non GMO cotton or other crops. The region covered included Nagpur, Amravati and Wardha of Vidharbha which accounts for highest GMO cotton planting in India, and the highest rate of farmers suicides (4000 per year). In 3 years, Bt-cotton has reduced the population of Actinomycetes by 17%. Actinomycetes are vital for breaking down cellulose and creating humus. Bacteria were reduced by 14%. The total microbial biomass was reduced by 8.9%. Vital soil beneficial enzymes which make nutrients available to plants have also been drastically reduced. Acid Phosphatase which contributes to uptake of phosphates was reduced by 26.6%. Nitrogenase enzymes which help fix nitrogen were reduced by 22.6%. At this rate, in a decade of planting with GM cotton, or any GM crop with Bt genes in it, could lead to total destruction of soil organisms, leaving dead soil unable to produce food. The ISAAA in its recent release has stated that there are 7.6 mha of Bt-cotton in India. This means 7.6 mha of dying soils. The impact of GMO’s on soil organisms is not commonly studied. This is a vital lacunae because Bt toxin crops such as Mon 810 corn or Bt-cotton or Bt Brinjal have serious impact on beneficial soil organisms. The government of India is trying to grant approval to Bt Brinjal without Bio safety studies on impact on Soil organisms. The European Commissión is trying to put pressure on GMO free countries to introduce Mon 810. The Navdanya study the first that has looked at the long term impact of Bt cotton on soil organisms is a wake up to regulators worldwide. It also shows that the claims of the Biotechnology industry about the safety of GM crops are false.

Austrian Government Study Confirms Genetically Modified (GM) Crops Threaten Human Fertility and Health Safety

Advocates Call for Immediate Ban of All GM Foods and GM Crops

A long-term feeding study commissioned by the Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety, managed by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Health, Family and Youth, and carried out by Veterinary University Vienna, confirms genetically modified (GM) corn seriously affects reproductive health in mice. Non-GMO advocates, who have warned about this infertility link along with other health risks, now seek an immediate ban of all GM foods and GM crops to protect the health of humankind and the fertility of women around the world.

Feeding mice with genetically modified corn developed by the US-based Monsanto Corporation led to lower fertility and body weight, according to the study conducted by the University of Veterinary Medicine in Vienna. Lead author of the study Professor Zentek said, there was a direct link between the decrease in fertility and the GM diet, and that mice fed with non-GE corn reproduced more efficiently.

In the study, Austrian scientists performed several long-term feeding trials over 20 weeks with laboratory mice fed a diet containing 33% of a GM variety (NK 603 x MON 810), or a closely related non-GE variety used in many countries. Statistically significant litter size and pup weight decreases were found in the third and fourth litters in the GM-fed mice, compared to the control group.

The corn is genetically modified with genes that produce a pesticidal toxin, as well as genes that allow it to survive applications of Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup.

Monsanto: Seed of Death

Video documentary on Monsanto Corporation's abuse of Percy Schmeiser, one small farmer out of thousands across the globe being terrorized by this multi-national mega company. Monsanto has head quarters in almost every country, large or small. They do this to cirumvent the laws that may stop or impead their research. They also invest countless millions in manipulation of governments and elected officials. To drive this point home, the top personal of Monsanto were/or currently part of the US government (FDA, Supreme Court, Sec. of Agriculture, ETC.) Monsanto has started a culture of scientific manipulation, much like that of buying a common prostitute off the street, Monsanto "buys" off the universities by way of huge, strictly enforced, "research grants" worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. If a scientist's research discover ANYTHING that could adversely affect Monsanto (who supports the university by their research "grants"), the scientists are told by the College/Lab/University to immediately stop or "find" a method to support a favorable result. If they refuse, said researcher is terminated.

 

Heel interessant is dit PDF rapport waar de rol van Monsanto bij het mangelen van Amerikaanse / Canadese boeren. Je kunt er donder op zeggen dat dit ook binnen Europa gaat spelen, de EU zal wel weer gaan toekijken en zeggen dat het allemaal wel niet zo'n vaart zal gaan lopen...... het bekende verhaal van de innige relatie tussen ambtenaren en lobbyisten..... en drie keer raden wie de rekening krijgt.....

De wereld volgens Monsanto

Marie-Monique Robin, die al drie andere documentaires op haar naam heeft staan over biodiversiteit en patenten op leven, kwam daarbij steeds de naam Monsanto tegen en ging daarom op onderzoek uit naar het bedrijf zelf.

Video - Hijacked Future Trailer

The source of our food – seeds – is being hijacked by a handful of corporations from the farmers who have for millennia, grown and saved them. But why should we care about a farmer’s seeds? Aren’t companies developing new seeds all the time? They are -- and that’s part of the problem -- because who controls the seeds, controls our food. More and more, that control is in the hands of a few multinational corporations whose bottom line is profit for their shareholders not necessarily an abundance of healthy food. Should anybody, the film asks, own seeds? “Hijacked Future” takes us from the grain fields of Saskatchewan, to farmers and seed banks in Ethiopia, to north of the Arctic Circle in Norway, where the “Doomsday” vault is being built to stockpile seeds in the event of a global crisis. The documentary looks at the increasingly fragile base of our North American industrial food system in order to bring all of us consumers of food to a better understanding of just what’s at stake with our daily bread. It asks us to question the wisdom of a system precariously based on oil and corporate seeds while we’re at the same time witnessing the impact of climate change. As the film says, “It all starts with the seed, and the stakes are high… because who controls the seed, controls the food… Who will control the seeds we plant, and the food we put on our tables?” Will our future be…Hijacked?


Monsanto's Genetically Modified Milk Ruled Unsafe by The United Nations

The Codex Alimentarius Commission, the U.N. Food Safety Agency representing 101 nations worldwide, has ruled unanimously in favor of the 1993 European moratorium on Monsanto's genetically engineered hormonal milk (rBGH). This unexpected ruling, revealingly greeted by the U.S. press with deafeningsilence, is a powerful blow against U.S. global trade policies which are strongly influenced by powerful multi-national corporations, such as Monsanto.The Codex Commission ruling has also forced the U.S. to abandon its threats to challenge the European moratorium before the World Trade Organization later this year. As importantly, the ruling represents the first large scale defeat of genetically modified foods on unarguable scientific grounds, apart from ethical and ideological concerns.

Monsanto vs Schmeiser

Percy Schmeiser is a farmer from Bruno, Saskatchewan Canada whose Canola fields were contaminated with Monsanto's Round-Up Ready Canola. Monsanto's position was that it didn't matter whether Schmeiser knew or not that his canola field was contaminated with the Roundup Ready gene, or whether or not he took advantage of the technology (he didn't); that he must pay Monsanto their Technology Fee of $15./acre. The Supreme Court of Canada agreed with Schmeiser, ruling that he didn't have to pay Monsanto anything !

Save our seeds campaign

The Ban Terminator Campaign seeks to promote government bans on Terminator technology at the national and international levels, and supports the efforts of civil society, farmers, Indigenous peoples and social movements to campaign against it.

http://www.banterminator.org/


The safety of terminator seeds

Governments keep trying to find ways to make GM seeds safe and acceptable and they keep failing. They should stop trying. There is no such thing as a safe and acceptable form of Terminator. The EU should discontinue funding for research on “reversible transgenic sterility,” and re-assess funding for other research projects undertaken by Transcontainer. Rather than support research on coexistence to bail out the agbiotech industry, the EU should instead fund sustainable agricultural research that benefits farmers and the public. National governments should propose legislation to prohibit field-testing and commercial sale of Terminator technologies. Governments meeting at the 9th Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity in Bonn, Germany must strengthen the moratorium on GURTs by recommending a ban on the technology.

Video - Canadians Warn Australia about GM Canola

Terry Boehm, the Vice President of the Canadian National Farmers Union, and Arnold Taylor, the National President of the Canadian Organic Growers Association, held a press conference in the Parliament of New South Wales on February 4th, 2008 to warn Australian farmers to keep their crops free of genetic manipulation. They reported on Canada's 12-year experience of commercially growing genetically engineered (GE) canola. Terry Boehm said, "Since the introduction of GE canola in Canada, seed prices have risen dramatically and corporate control over farmers is tighter than ever before. There are constant threats of litigation to the extent that farmers are complying with company conditions disallowing them from saving seed rather than using their own because they are scared of being sued." They reported that contamination from GE canola was inevitable, because there is no way to segregate the non-GE crops from the GE crops due to wind and insect pollination unless there was a 26-kilometer buffer zone, and that was almost impossible. They said that almost all canola in Canada is now contaminated, and Monsanto continuously sues farmers which drives them off their land.


Video - BAD SEED: The Truth About Our Food

This documentary exposes a vast conspiracy to contaminate and control the world's food supply through genetic engineering of food crops. Leading scientists and activists present the facts that you need to know about genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The methods used to genetically engineer plants are imprecise and extremely dangerous. Eighty percent of food sold in North America already has ingredients made of GMOs that have not been adequately tested for safety. This program presents all the facts about this alarming controversy and and features the most credible bio tech / agriculture authorities in the world today.


Video - Monsanto's Toxic Milk - Banned in Europe

Why is American Milk Banned in Europe? American dairy milk is genetically-modified unless it's labeled "NO rBGH". Genetically-engineered bovine growth hormone (rBGH) in milk increases cancer risks. American dairy farmers inject rBGH to dairy cows to increase milk production. European nations and Canada have banned rBGH to protect citizens from IGF-1 hazards.


Video - The Genetic Conspiracy - about Monsanto

How safe is the so-called "Green Genetic Engineering" really? Monsanto, the world's largest genetic engineering corporation, insists it is safe. Numerous studies claim genetically modified plants can cause allergies and cancers. However, commercial and political interests are determined to make genetic engineering the norm.


Video - How to Monopolize Food - Monsanto Style

Monsanto rose to prominence as one of the leading chemical giants of the twentieth century, but its focus today is agriculture. a lot of people think of them for chemicals, fibers, all of those things that the name—that the company made its reputation on. But below that, in recent years, has been this remarkable revolution, where they are now an agricultural company, a life sciences company, and they want to completely put their chemical past behind them, in that sense, to concentrate on these new areas: genetically modified seeds and artificial supplements to increase milk production, and so forth.


Video - Franse documentaire toont tactieken van Monsanto

De Frans-Duitse TV-zender Arte lanceerde op 11 maart een documentaire van Marie-Monique Robin over Monsanto. "De wereld volgens Monsanto" toont een bedrijf dat als motto "voedsel -- gezondheid -- hoop" heeft, maar door de giftigheid van zijn producten op grote schaal ellende veroorzaakt. Intussen onderdrukt Monsanto eerlijke informatie hierover, houdt zijn producten zo lang mogelijk op de markt en ontloopt zijn verantwoordelijkheid.

Boek - Pandora's Picnic Basket

Did you know that there are fish genes in some tomatoes? That Brazil nut genes in soybeans can result in potentially lethal allergic reactions? That rapeseed plants bred to be resistant to herbicides could become uncontrollable superweeds? Genetically modified foods do pose real risks, and in recent years they have become the focus of a pitched battle between scientists, entrepreneurs, consumer advocates, and environmentalists. Yet despite the great heat generated by the debate, there is very little real information on the subject, either about the technologies in use or about the regulatory processes established to protect us from potentially dangerous products.

Pandora's Picnic Basket explains, in clear and direct language, the technologies underlying genetically modified food, comparing them with other "natural" methods of plant breeding and production. Researcher Alan McHughen evaluates the safeguards in place from regulators around the world and asks whether these are sufficient. In particular, he examines the question of labeling, held by some to be an obvious way to help protect consumers, and addresses the honesty and usefulness of some of these labels. Throughout the book, McHughen offers fair-minded, well-informed accounts of issues of real concern, particularly environmental issues, and he outlines ways in which consumers can avoid genetically modified food if they so choose. The author uses question-and-answer boxes to address key issues and real case histories to illustrate the development and regulation of genetically modified food.

They (Monsanto) are now seeking a patent on the actual pig. It's an astounding and dangerous claim. The world has allowed this company to basically own life! If you have not heard of the Monsanto Corporation and you eat food like most humans on earth, it would be worth your time to research what this company has done to the world's food sources, supplies and what they have planned.
