Audio: GMO Crops so Toxic & "Tough," Farmers now need Kevlar Tires to protect their Tractors from "Spear-like" Stalks!Submitted by AnCapMercenary on Sun, 08/05/2012 - 17:39
Yes, you read correctly. Their tires now need Kevlar lining, the same material used for body armor!
Apparently, the GMO farmers' own equipment have the same yield as their single harvest Terminator seeds: once.
Thanks to the GMO crops, the average lifespan of a tractor tire has dwindled from five or six years down to just one or two — if the farmer is lucky.

Farming is one of the most difficult ways to earn a living. You'd think that with all the innovations mankind has developed over the centuries, we could make farmers' lives easier. But as it turns out, sometimes miracles of modern science make things tougher. Literally.
Take genetically modified organisms (GMO) for instance. For now, let's ignore the controversy over its safety, usefulness and ethical issues. The main issue for those guys actually growing and harvesting the stuff is much more practical. As it turns out, corn modified to stand tall and tough against pests is also wreaking havoc on tractor tires.
Mark Newhall of Farm Show Magazine tells American Public Media's Marketplace that after the stalks are cut during harvest, the leftover stubs are like "having a field of little spears.

The news surrounding GMO crops continues to get further and further outlandish as the crops are increasingly mutated and sprayed with a medley of harsh pesticides, herbicides, and insecticides. The latest news comes from an unlikely source — an automotive publication known as AutoBlog. The website reports that farmers who have opted to plant Monsanto’s genetically modified seeds have run into one daunting problem (outside of decreased yields and an extremely higher risk of disease): little ‘spear-like’ stalks from the harvested GMOs are absolutely wreaking havoc on the heavy duty tractor tires.
Described by one farmer as a ‘field of little spears’, farmers are now turning to kevlar tires. In case you’re not aware, kevlar is the same material used in bulletproof vests to protect from gun bullets.
The stalks are so sharp and weapon-like that they can wreck an entire set of wheels, which is a daunting reality when considered that one tractor can have as many as eight heavy duty tires. Furthermore, a single tractor tire can easily cost thousands of dollars. Thanks to the GMO crops, the average lifespan of a tractor tire has dwindled from five or six years down to just one or two — if the farmer is lucky. Add that to the exponentially increased amount of pesticide use required to maintain modified crops thanks to heavily mutated ‘super’ rootworms and other insects, and it’s easy to see how GMO farming is nothing but a monetary pitfall for farmers.
Now, some tires on the market already use some form of synthetic protective lining, including Kevlar, but never have farming tires needed so much.
As if Monsanto's Terminator seeds that only yield a single harvest aren't bad enough, and bankrupting poor small family farms who have been defrauded into using them in the first place. Now, they have to replace rather expensive ginormous tires to the tune of 100's of THOUSANDS of dollars, PER tractor/combine!
Truly begs the question, if your 'food' is toxic enough to kill bugs, and the newly genetically engineered plant's own lineage dies after only ONE harvest, and weak enough where insects still manage to overcome the GMO's engineered 'defenses,' how 'healthy' could it possibly be for your body?
The likes of Monsatan are committing fraud, as they're literally selling poison as 'food.'
While not requiring GMO labeling via govt legislative directive may be copacetic to free market, as when govt can require GMO labeling, they can and will require, control and police other labels as well via the FDA whom we all love and trust (NOT!), more specific of GMO, the likes of Monsatan are not only selling indisputable poison, which at the least they need to pay for their victims' resultant health issues, their executives and scientists alike must be arrested, as they're systematically knowingly committing RICO crimes. Also, the GMO manufacturers are the ones who need to be sued out of existence, as organic farmers whose neighbors who used Monsatan seeds have no control over wind, when their neighbors' GMO seeds blow over and 'poison their well,' so to speak.
Besides, in all other pollution and poisoning liability lawsuits, WHO is the guilty party, when one person's place of business, or a company, blows over poison into their neighbor's yard??
These lunatics must go, the same way of the feckless, the most useless 'people'/'profession' on earth: paper shuffling banksters who literally have zero useful skills, period, along with their Military Industrial Complex.
For those seeking to truly grow an organic garden, both small and industrial scale, wood chips/mulching/'skin' for your soil, seems to be the way to go!
