Is the supposed safety advantage of GMO crops over conventional chemical pesticides a mirage?
According to biotech lore, the Bt pesticides introduced into many GMO food crops are natural proteins whose toxic activity extends only to narrow groups of insect species. Therefore, says the industry, these pesticides can all be safely eaten, e.g. by humans.
This is not the interpretation we arrived at after our analysis of the documents accompanying the commercial approval of 23 typical Bt-containing GMO crops, however (see Latham et al., 2017, just published in the journal Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering Reviews).
In our publication, authored along with Madeleine Love and Angelika Hilbeck, of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), we show that commercial GMO Bt toxins differ greatly from their natural precursors. These differences are important. They typically cause GMO Bt proteins to be more toxic. Worse, they also cause them to be active against many more species than natural forms of Bt toxins. ….
This should not be a surprise to anyone who’s been paying attention. There are at least 6 well founded reasons to distrust genetic manipulation as a deterministic “science.”
- The introduction of genomic instability. Cells are complex systems with inherently unpredictable dynamics, especially over multiple generations. Sticking a base pair at a particular place in a chromosome does not in any way ensure that it will stay put.
- Introduction of instability in the ecosystem which interacts with the GMO organism, especially given the creation of novel proteins which have never existed before (see below).
- Unpredictable “collateral damage” of specific gene editing techniques like CRISPR
- Molecular baggage utilized during the editing process which is brought along with the targeted gene, like promoters and antibiotic resistance genes. Who wants antibiotic resistant BT factories running 24/7 living in their guts? Mmmmm goood.
- Horizontal gene transfer
All of this was predictable long before this “science” ever became commercialized.
I gave up on the incompetence theory a long time ago. The theory of self-perpetuating luciferian-based networks of organized crime seems much more explanatory of current events, especially in light of actual whistleblowers going public ( http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2017/04/former-high-financier-at-the-top-theyre-all-luciferians/ ) law enforcement officials’ investigations ( https://www.liveleak.com/view?i=4b4_1377531846 ) , the deliberate creation of the great depression for profit ( http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2015/02/milton-friedman-on-the-origins-of-the-great-ripoff/ ) , the USA’s long covert history of spreading nazi torture techniques and mass murder around the world, especially in latin america and the persian gulf ( http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2017/10/how-to-stop-terror-attacks/ ) and the systematic use of child kidnapping, torture and pedophilia by western intelligence agencies for the purpose of political control ( http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2014/12/franklin-coverup-the-white-house-call-boy-ring/ ) not to mention the personal experiences of my childhood best friend Kerth, who has written several books on the subject ( http://kerthbarker.com/ ) and who also posts here periodically.
If you take nothing else away from this site, at least understand that our central position here is that the western world and much of the eastern world is controlled behind the scenes by ultra-wealthy satanists who tend to be groupies or shareholders of central banks, the ultimate form of organized crime ( http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2017/03/censored-ben-franklin-on-the-real-cause-of-the-american-revolution/ ). That is, after all, where the money is.
Of course it’s up to you to determine whether we’re all just crazy.
