A breakthrough report on the nutritional density of genetically-modified(GM) corn crops demolishes all existing claims that GMOs are “substantially equivalent” to non-GMOs.

Entitled 2012 Nutritional Analysis:
Comparison of GMO Corn versus Non-GMO Corn, the paper reveals not only that GMO corn is greatly lacking in vitamins and minerals compared to non-GMO corn, but also that it is highly toxic and filled with deadly crop chemicals like glyphosate (Roundup).

Are GMOs safe?
Most developed nations do not consider GMOS to be safe. In more than 60 countries around the world, including Australia, Japan, and all of the countries in the European Union, there are significant restriction or outright bans on the production and sale of GMOs. In the U.S. and Canada,both governments have approved GMOs based on studies conducted by the same corporations that created them and profit from their sale.

“I’ve heard, not only in your country but also in my country, and united states scientists say, and some government people say, we must be part of this new technology, this new technology is crazy science, its unsafe science, and its not proven science.

and if we’ve had, in north america, 11,12 years of GMOs, how come we don’t have lots of food now to feed the hungry world?

The corporations want total, total control of the seed supply, which will then give them total control of the food supply.

In japan, I met with a lot of scientists, consumers, processors and importers, and this document here is a condensed version of the all the scientific studies the Japanese have done using Monsanto’s data, is over 50 pages long.

Monsanto always use the term “substantially equivalent” that the food is very similar, the Japanese scientists say that it is NOT “substantially equivalent” the food is different and that you’ve changed, in true genetic engineering, or genetic modification, you’ve changed the structure of the food, and that it is not the same, and it can have very harmful allergens, or bacteria then, because the viruses and the bacteria that they use for the transferring genes are also in that food, So, it is NOT the same, and it can have very possible long range health effects by eating it.
In other words, what Monsanto presented, to our governments in north america, is false, and that, it is not safe and it is not “substantially equivalent” which means it’s not the same as other regular food, and that has been a major major announcement, by the Japanese scientists”
