Hungary torches 500 hectares of GM corn to eradicate GMOs from food supplySubmitted by clynbrit on Wed, 05/29/2013 - 07:03
GMOs have been banned in 27 countries, and GMOs are required to be labeled in at least 50 countries.
Lajos Bognar, Hungary's Minister of Rural Development, reported this week that around 500 hectares of GM corn were ordered burned by the government. Hungary has criminalized the planting of genetically modified crops of any kind, and it has repeatedly burned thousands of hectares of illegal GM crops in years past.
GM crops were burned to prevent the contamination of natural organic corn in their country. Study Confirms Genetically Modified Corn Can Cross-Pollinate with organic crops if genetically modified corn is grown in nearby fields. http://www.commondreams.org/headlines02/0219-06.htm
GM Genes are transferred to the DNA of your gut bacteria
The gene inserted into GM soy/corn transfers into the DNA of bacteria living inside our intestines and continues to function, transforming our intestinal bacteria into living pesticide factories, possibly for the rest of our lives.
Famed Canadian geneticist David Suzuki answers, “The experiments simply haven’t been done and we now have become the guinea pigs.” He adds, “Anyone that says, ‘Oh, we know that this is perfectly safe,’ I say is either unbelievably stupid or deliberately lying.”
World renowned biologist Pushpa M. Bhargava goes one step further. After reviewing more than 600 scientific journals, he concludes that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are a major contributor to the sharply deteriorating health of Americans.
When evidence of gene transfer is reported at medical conferences around the US, doctors often respond by citing the huge increase of gastrointestinal problems among their patients over the last decade. GM foods might be colonizing the gut flora of North Americans. http://foodmatters.tv/articles-1/the-truth-is-out-on-genetic...
Studies on rats (valid scientific data)

Monsanto is powerful and will try to bury any research that challenges its right to be the global provider of seed and food. All about power, control, profit.
