Safety Group Blows Lid on 'Secret Virus' Hidden in GMO Crops

Anthony Gucciardi | Infowars.com | Feb 7, 2013

Yet another disturbing reason has emerged as to why you should be avoiding health-devastating genetically modified organisms, and it may be one of the most concerning yet. We know that GMO consumption has been linked to a host of serious conditions, but one thing we are not so sure about is the recent discovery of a hidden viral gene deep within genetically modified crops.

For years, GMOs have been consumed knowingly and unknowingly around the globe, with Monsanto and the United States government claiming that the altered franken crops are perfectly safe despite very limited (or virtually none in some cases) initial testing and scientists speaking out against the dangers. One such danger that has actually not been spoken about has been revealed in a recent report by a safety watchdog group known as the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).

Another Dirty Secret of Monsanto

In the EFSA report, which can be read online, you can find (within the scientific wording) that researchers discovered a previously unknown viral gene that is known as ‘Gene VI’. What’s concerning is that not only is the rogue gene found in the most prominent GMO crops and about 63% of GMO traits approved for use (54 out of 86 to be precise), but it can actually disrupt the very biological functions within living organisms. Popular GMO crops such as Roundup-Ready soybeans, NK603, and MON810 corn were found to contain the gene that induces physical mutations. NK603 maize, of course, was also recently linked to the development of mass tumors in rats.

According to Independent Science News, Gene VI also inhibits RNA silencing. As you may know, RNA silencing has been pinpointed as vital for the proper functioning of gene expression when it comes to RNA. Perhaps more topically, it is a defense mechanism against viruses in plants and animals alike. On the contrary, many viruses have developed genes that disable this protective process. Independent Science News reports that the Gene VI is one such gene.

Monsatan is at it again

from gene 6 to the epicyte gene. Americans are in serious trouble for not banning this crapola!

Todays brainwashing: GMO's are safe

Goddamnit why is this company

Goddamnit why is this company and its contemporaries still in business! They are harming millions world wide along with the environment and idiots here are claiming its the free market just don't buy their products.

Yeah let them alone to destroy the planet and poison and maim millions while we try to convince the sheep they are being poisoned theirs a winning strategy... Sigh!

Where are the frigging eco- terrorists when you really need them... Sigh!

The FDA should be the FA & the DA

The Food and Drug Administration should be two separate administrations not one. They should be butting heads and keeping each other in check. Instead what we have is one easily corrupted department putting drugs in our food. So if we don't want to take their drugs they just put it in our food!

I expect

anti-GMO folks chip in their own money to fund a campaign to review the findings in USA court.

Putting the issue to a majority vote via trial thru the media or government agency is NOT a Libertarian approach. By the way, where are our anarchists to debate our blue republicans and alex jones populists?

I Know The Head of GMO Unit for EFSA

I was reading this article and I got very interested because it sounded just like my family friend was involved. Before she was head of GMO Unit for EFSA she studied plant viruses. I am going to have to talk to her and find out more about this.


Please post a summation

I am sure you will have to maintain confidentiality, but please publish what you can

Everytime I read something like this

I want to tear my hair out! How are we to live in America and stay away from GMO? It seems nearly impossible. I try to eat healthy and organic but so many things contain corn-syrup and all corn is GMO here. If you eat any packaged foods, most likely GMO ingredients. If you eat out, probably GMO ingredients. So many of our politicians/law makers used to work for Monsanto. It seems like an un-winnable battle.

"It’s not pessimistic, brother, because this is the blues. We are blues people. The blues aren’t pessimistic. We’re prisoners of hope but we tell the truth and the truth is dark. That’s different." ~CW

Follow these rules then:

Stop eating things with HFCS or variants.
Stop eating corn. (you don't digest it anyway)
Stop eating prepackaged food.
Stop eating in restaurants. (unless they specifically cater to nonGMO clientele)

GROW your own food. Buy from trusted and reputable LOCAL sources, you CAN and DO investigate to verify their practices.

Too much trouble for you? Life isn't cheap or easy. Learn to pay the price, or die lazy.

You alone are responsible for what you put in your body. If you put the duty to vet that food on others, don't bitch because it isn't what you would have chosen yourself.

Isn't the link between GMO's and mass tumors in rats enough?!

Nope

For a populist, it is enough. Same was said about saccharine, MSG, etc. Idle affirmative-action government researchers and private researchers on government grants need to produce something once in a while to justify their salary. Scare tactic is their only way to advance their career and move ahead in life.

Courts should examine what concentration was used and request an independent FBI lab to check if the judge is impressed by the evidence.

Except you're totally wrong

Yeah, except MSG, aspartame and the like ARE and have been proven neurotoxic time and time again. The only studies showing no problems are the ones paid and administered by their manufacturers.

Are you saying it's the skeptics who make the money? Have the vaccine skeptics advanced their career by finding links to autism? How about the global warming skeptics? I bet there was tons of support for them. Architects and Engineers for Truth? No? Blacklisted, you say? Hmm, curious. It's the "researchers" who support the status quo which get the research money, not the ones who question it.

Biological warfare.

A brilliant and succinct assessment.

Who?When? And why would anyone vote this post down?

The up vote was at 7, and then dropped to 5 before I bumped it up to 6. Looks like the Monsanto trolls will be out in force today.

F...king trolls

And Yet

some people think it's okay to not know if they are eating it.

skippy

People want to know, and if

People want to know, and if the markets were truly free, it would be transparent and obvious as to who was using GMO's.

The issue people have is that they don't want to use government force for anything. Its a consistancy issue more than anything. Using force is never the solution. Allowing competition and free markets is.
