Have you ever met anybody who asked for GM cornflakes for breakfast, or otherwise for GMOs in his / her food? This question is not asked often enough, but it should underpin everything we do and say in the campaign to rid the world of GM crops and foods. In this good old-fashioned polemic (full of exclamation marks!) Mike Adams looks at the issue, and makes many very good points......

(NaturalNews) Genetically engineered foods will "feed the world," say Bill Gates and all the rest of the GMO pushers. GM crops are the result of "high-tech agriculture" and "advanced technology" created by super-smart agricultural geniuses who only enhance the properties of food crops. GMOs are better than God, better than Mother Nature, and one of the great gifts of science to humankind -- sort of like electricity, only more edible.
If this is all true, then why doesn't the GMO industry want credit for all this effort on food labels? Shouldn't the industry leap at the opportunity to have foods labeled with things like:
• Fortified with extra GMOs!
• Genetically Modified to grow strong bones!
• Now with GMO technology in every delicious bite!
If GMOs are so wonderful, in other words, then why wouldn't the industry tout all its amazing technology right on the labels of the foods containing GMOs?
The reality? GMOs are poison
But no, instead of the industry begging for regulatory permission to place GMO bragging rights on food labels, the industry has done exactly the opposite: It has demanded that consumers be kept in the dark about GMOs!
• They don't want consumers to even know they're eating GMOs!
• They believe consumer ignorance is preferable to consumer choice.
• They want consumers kept in the dark, uninformed and unable to avoid GMOs.
The GMO industry, in fact, is already viciously fighting a proposed GMO labeling mandate in California -- a law that would merely require foods to be truthfully labeled when they contain genetically modified ingredients. What could be wrong with that? But in an age when consumers want to know more information about what they're buying, not less, the GMO industry somehow believes consumer ignorance is victory!
So when GMO pushers like Bill Gates say they want to "feed the world," what they really mean is they want to secretly force-feed the world mystery ingredients that are not listed on the labels so that consumers won't even be aware of what they're eating. (Such as the deadly insecticide found in every kernel of GM corn...)
Commonsense food rule: Beware of anything the food companies don't want to put on the label
If the ag giants and food companies don't want to put something on a food label, that's a pretty strong sign that you probably shouldn't eat it.
If it was good for you, they would obviously want to brag about it on the label. All natural! Fortified with minerals! Low in sodium!
So how come the industry doesn't want to claim, "High in GMOs!" on every food box?
Want some flaked corn breakfast cereal? It's on sale for $1.99 a box, and it's high in GMOs!
How about some corn tortillas for your Mexican fiesta dinner? Those corn tortillas are fortified with extra GMOs, too!
Thirsty? Grab yourself a 12-pack of that famous brand sports drink -- it's sweetened with genetically modified corn syrup! Plus, it's got electrolytes!
Or how about a super-sized box of Genetically Modified Corn Flakes for breakfast? You can even eat it with a bowl of pasteurized, homogenized, Bovine Growth Hormone-contaminated, pus-filled factory-processed cow's milk! Yumm!
But you don't see any of this marketing material at the grocery store, do you? GMOs remain the dirty little secret of the food industry -- even at places like Whole Foods, which sort of try to imply they're against GMOs, but then they turn around and sell all sorts of GM foods anyway.
GMOs are worse than skeletons in the closet
GMOs are to the food industry what gay public toilet sex is to a pro-family Republican candidate. Or hidden camera photos of the naked choir boys and the Catholic priest. GMOs are the bones buried under the basement slab of a mass murderer who's also running for Governor. They're the prostitution ring records that reveal one very busy repeat customer named "Eliot Spitzer."
GMOs are the leaked Stratfor emails that reveal the U.S. is already on the ground working to destroy Syria's infrastructure. GMOs are the proof of election fraud in a so-called "free nation." GMOs are not just Big Ag's skeletons in the closet; they are the skeletons in a closet full of beaten, gagged children who have been kidnapped by CPS officials and sold into "white slavery" to the local community's business leaders who run the children's foundations.
GMOs are the dirty food secret that's so dirty, virtually no one would buy any food known to contain GMOs. They are worse than the plague. They are anti-food. Labeling foods with GMOs is essentially the same as slapping a large skull and crossbones on the package, and that's exactly why the death-worshipping, profit-sucking corporate whores who work for the biotech industry are fighting so hard to prevent GMO labels from appearing on foods. "Holy crap! We can't have consumers knowing the TRUTH, can we?"
Isn't it fascinating that the GMO industry depends entirely on hiding its products in order to stay in business? What other industry is so steeped in destructive, hateful products that it has to actively seek to HIDE THEM from consumers? Biotech is an industry whose products are sold entirely through trickery and deceit, not honest labeling and full disclosure.
Why we will win this fight for the right to know what we are eating
But make no mistake, my friends, for the People shall be victorious against this insidious brand of agricultural imperialism. As I publicly shared just the other day, I had a vision (or was it a dream?) of a massive army of American farmers and consumers who marched on Monsanto, arrested all its employees and burned its buildings to the ground.
I believe that day may very well come true in the near future, and I can only hope it will be followed by a series of very public trials where the GMO scientists, corporate CEOs and top marketing executives are all charged with crimes against humanity and tried by a jury of their peers. The genetic modification of seeds and the open planting of those seeds in the natural world should, I believe, be a crime against nature met by a most severe punishment such as life in prison for anyone found guilty of those crimes in a Constitutional court that abides by due process. Almost no punishment is too great against these criminals, because those who sow genetically modified seeds upon our natural world risk the death of billions of people in their careless arrogance. Some might even argue that the death sentence would be justifiable in such cases.
Just remember: the next time you go shopping at the grocery store, take a closer look at the label of a food product and ask yourself, "What are they NOT telling me about what's in this product?"
Because much of the time, you're actually buying "mystery food" containing all sorts of toxins, poisons or horrifying ingredients that are never listed on the label (by design, of course).
And that's the way Big Ag and Big Food like it -- keep consumers in the dark! The less they know about how processed food is made, where it comes from and what it contains, the better! And the more ignorant consumers can be kept, the more GMOs the biotech industry can shove down their gullible little throats.
