I highly suggest y’all to stay the fuck away from those. Because nobody knows the long term affect of these un-natural garbage.
Though I came crossed a rat experiment and they were fed with the GMO corns and they ended up with multiple tumors & cancers then eventually died.
I love how the movie “Dallas Buyer Club” takes a huge shit on FDA.
The FDA approves of the toxic preservatives for people to eat & get sick.
Meanwhile they’re banning the potential cures for the dying patients with AIDS.
Oh wait that’s right.
The “current” deputy commissioner of FDA was the “former” vice president of Monsanto.
How time hasn’t changed anything at all & fuck money hungry Big Pharmas too.
Maybe there’s some sort of mass confusion or dyslexia going on..
Isn’t the FDA’s commissioner the ex-President of Monsanto?
Yes, he is. That’s comical.
Vice-president Michael Taylor, appointed to FDA in 2009 and according to google he is still commissioner.
And appointed by Obama. So there you go!
The FDA says what it’s PAID to say! Do the opposite!
Raw milk and cheese makes their food-like products look even more like a sick joke…
* Did you know rain harvesting is also illegal in many states?
pizza is a vegetable
Ignorance is strength.
Mexico Bans GMO Corn Effective Immediately
By Kaye Spector
Effective immediately, companies like Monsanto and DuPont/Pioneer will no longer be allowed to plant or sell their corn within the country’s borders.
According to Environmental Food and Justice, Judge Jaime Eduardo Verdugo J. of the Twelfth Federal District Court for Civil Matters of Mexico City wrote that the genetically engineered corn posed ”the risk of imminent harm to the environment.”
He also ordered Mexico’s Secretary of Agriculture and SEMARNAT (Secretaría de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales), the equivalent to the U.S. EPA, to immediately “suspend all activities involving the planting of transgenic corn in the country and end the granting of permission for experimental and pilot commercial plantings.”
The ruling means Monsanto and other biotech companies will be required to halt all activities in the country, giving collective action lawsuits initiated by citizens, farmers, scientists and other concerned parties a chance to work their way through the judicial system.
According to a local press release, Acción Colectiva [Collective Action] aims to achieve absolute federal declaration of the suspension of the introduction of transgenic maize in all its various forms, including experimental and pilot commercial plantings, in Mexico, “which is the birthplace of corn in the world.”
The ruling provides at least temporary protection for the 20,000 varieties of corn grown in Mexico and Central America.
In a similar move, the Big Island County Council in Hawaii is considering a ban on GMOs.

I must remind you that often people think GMO is good because we’ll yield higher % of crops.
But the truth is that they’re altering its DNA code so that it has TOXIC PESTICIDES [WIPING OUT THE HONEYBEE COLONIES AS WE SPEAK] within the plants from the stage of seed to its suicidal end [YES, THEY CREATED SELF-TERMINATION SEEDS TO FORCE FARMERS TO BUY THEIR SEEDS EVERY YEAR.]
However the cross-breeding/selective breeding methods are using the naturally growing plants to bring out the most desirable traits we want by mating w/o destroying its natural characteristics.
Also nobody knows the long term hazard affects of consuming GMO. But seeing honeybees wiped out certainly doesn’t give us a hope….
Everyone needs to stop dicking around and seriously do something about this. This is a wide spread matter. If you think honey bees dying out won’t effect us in any way, you are dead wrong. Everyone can do something, ANYTHING, to help. Sign petitions. Boycott. Let government know that this is a serious matter!! If you are a farmer or know someone spread the messages to STOP using insecticides/pesticides and gmos!! Let everyone know!! THERE ARE BETTER ALTERNATIVES. They are bad for us as well causing serious health problems! NOT ONLY THAT BUT BEES POLLINATE MORE THAN JUST FLOWERS!! MOST OF THE FRUITS AND VEGETABLES WE EAT AND MANY OTHER FOODS. YOU WILL NOT HAVE THEM EVER AGAIN THE SAME WAY WITHOUT THE BEES. COCOA = CHOCOLATE. BEES HELP POLLINATE COCOA. THINK ABOUT NEVER HAVING CHOCOLATE AGAIN. JUST THINK ABOUT THIS. So please!! Everyone! Spread this message!! You CAN make a difference!!
Bees are fucking important
Also bees are nice, they don’t sting because if their sting comes off they DIE
but wasps and hornets are assholes, they kill bees and they sting
Also bees are fucking artists and the best fucking engineers in the world
And nobody, as far as I know, has ever been able to produce synthetic honey
So, no bees, no honey
If you’ve got a backyard or a (safe) flat roof and a few hundred bucks, consider setting up an apiary or two.
Keeping even one hive greatly impacts the surrounding area and they are very low maintenance.
Also, hooray for honey.
If you aren’t totally quaking in your boots at the news of millions of bees dead, yet again, you’re nuts.
this should be concerning a lot more people than it is
not only because bees are one of the most important animals in the world and their job is a lot more than gathering honey but also because they are what scientists refer to as an “indicator species”
this means that when their populations start dwindling and then rapidly dropping, humans need to watch their shit because that means that environmental factors are too difficult for THEM to live in, so it might be difficult for US to live in, too. bees basically act as an indication that humans have a lot to worry about and when they start dying like this it deserves a lot more than a few headlines.
last year my biggest worry was the steep decline in bee population and apparently thats not about to change anytime soon. people have told me to my face that they think its strange I’m so concerned for the bees. read this you selfish fucks
Get excited, motherfuckers. Without bees, we will die off. Bayer and Monsanto continue to produce the chemicals that have been proven to kill them, and the government has their backs. Bees pollinate 30% of our food in the US and we are passing legislation to PROTECT the scumbags responsible for killing them.
I preach this shit to everyone who will listen and I always get “WAAAAH I HATE BEES THEY STING AND THEY ARE BIG MEANIES!” but think about your future life without kiwis, cranberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, peaches, sunflowers, cotton, apples, plums, pears, mustard, celery, peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, beans, cherries, melons, turnips, canola oil, alfalfa, soybeans, lemons, oranges, and I could go on forever.
Bees are amazing creatures who are responsible for the comfortable lives we lead in this country and we cannot sustain and feed our population without them.
Alright you guys, there’s a good amount of notes on this but it’s only making us aware of the problem, not telling us what we can do to help. We can do something to help and YOU CAN HELP, YES THAT MEANS YOU. ALL YOU NEED IS DIRT, A FEW BUCKS, AND A MOMENT OF YOUR TIME TO MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE, LITERALLY.
Plant flowers that bees like and that attract them.
Bees prefer flowers that are blue, purple, and yellow. Choose flowers that bloom successively over the spring, summer, and fall seasons such as coreopsis, Russian sage, or germander. They especially love clover! Other plants include sage, salvia, oregano, lavender, ironweed, yarrow, yellow hyssop, alfalfa, honeywort, dragonhead, echinacea, bee balm, buttercup, goldenrod and English thyme. Buy seeds online.
GET RID OF THE PESTICIDES!!
If pesticides are killing off the bees so easily, what do you think it’s doing to us? The EPA says studies have shown pesticides can cause birth defects, nerve damage, and cancer. There are other ways to get rid of pests in the garden than using chemicals. Organic Garden Pests shows you how to keep off the bugs the organic way.
Give the bees a free home!
Please, if you have already reblogged this, reblog this is again with what I have posted onto it so you know what you can do to help. We can make a difference.
