The Biotech Industry Is Taking Over the Regulation of GMOs From the Inside

The Biotech Industry Is Taking Over the Regulation of GMOs From the Inside:

The British non-profit GMWatch recently revealed the agribusiness takeover of Conabia, the National Advisory Committee on Agricultural Biotechnology of Argentina. Conabia is the GMO assessment body of Argentina. According to GMWatch, 26 of 34 its members were either agribusiness company employees or had major conflicts of interest.*

Packing a regulatory agency with conflicted individuals is one way to ensure speedy GMO approvals and Conabia has certainly delivered that. A much more subtle, but ultimately more powerful, way is to bake approval into the structure of the GMO assessment process itself. It is easier than you might think.

US Court Documents Show Monsanto Manager Led Cancer Cover Up for Glyphosate and PCBs

US Court Documents Show Monsanto Manager Led Cancer Cover Up for Glyphosate and PCBs:

The same Monsanto manager, Dr. George Levinskas, who helped hide the carcinogenic potential of PCBs in the 1970s, has now been shown, in California court documents released Tuesday, to have also influenced the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regarding the carcinogenic potential of the World’s most used herbicide – glyphosate – in the 1980s.

Michigan State University Research: Evidence of Glyphosate Link to Monarch Butterfly Decline

Michigan State University Research: Evidence of Glyphosate Link to Monarch Butterfly Decline:

Every winter, trees on high mountains in a small area northwest of Mexico City turn orange. Close inspection reveals branches filled with brilliantly colorful monarch butterflies, rather than fiery leaves, as the eastern North American population of monarchs winters there.

Their numbers, however, are shrinking. New research at Michigan State University, published in the current issue of the journal Ecography, makes a strong case that the reasons for this decline go far beyond what’s happening on the wintering grounds and addresses a current controversy about the primary causes of the specie’s decline.

Trump, like Killary, has been representing the swamp, BEFORE the election.


WARNING SIGNS: Code words in latest executive order indicate Trump may be getting sucked into the GMO / pesticide swamp:

In the realm of swampy corruption and murky politics, it doesn’t get any murkier or “swampier” than the GMO / pesticide industry, which profits from the mass poisoning of the environment and the food supply with toxic, disease-promoting chemicals.

While this “poison industry” enjoyed enormous government protection under both Bush and Obama administrations, clean food advocates and environmentalists all hoped that the next President might finally enforce scientific rationality by strictly regulating GMOs and pesticide chemicals in the interests of public safety (and environmental protection).
