Asia Should Strongly Reject GMO and Other Food Monopolisation Efforts

Posted in Asia, Patents at 6:36 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Summary: Monsanto is targeting parts of Asia (and Hawaii) with its business of toxins and patents

SEVERAL decades ago Monsanto played a role in the Vietnam war. It killed a huge number of people (as [1] reminds us, in light of some news) by disseminating poison across the ground, doing irreversible damage to this very date, affecting also newborns and wildlife.

Recently, a report from the British government’s press said that China discards or rejects half a million tons of genetically-monopolised corn [2], perhaps realising it is a Trojan horse of illness and dependence (on the West). Around the same time it was Hawaii [3], which is marginally a part of Asia (still disputed territories), fought against Monsanto’s genetically-monopolised crops. According to today’s article from the US government’s press [4], Hawaii was successful. No Agent Orange in Hawaii then…

On the other hand, the Philippines, which is arguably still colonised by the United States, fell for the Monsanto-led ploy [5] and eschewed genetically-monopolised crops. No lessons learned perhaps; never mind the health implications of genetic manipulation, the monopolisation, the toxins, etc.

“GMO Trees Threaten Global Forests” [6] according to a new and suppressed report. Why can’t every country, regardless of political distortion, simply reject GMO on scientific and trade-related grounds? This is a ploy that has been mostly successful in poor countries like India and exploited continents like Africa, with much involvement and participation by opportunists like Rockefeller and Gates, who almost literally bought the politicians there because they invest in Monsanto.

GMO is not about increasing yield; it is distorting the natural selection (going back to plants) that made up existing DNA of plants [7,8] and current equilibrium in flora, not just fauna. It is about monopolisation, but it is marketed as feeding those who are hungry. By distorting peer-reviewed publications and bribing politicians (especially in poor countries) this marketing campaign has been vastly successful, judging by the growing profits derived through patents (patenting foods).

We mostly covered Monsanto about half a decade ago, but it is still the same criminal company which it was back then. We need to stop it.

  4. A Lonely Quest for Facts on Genetically Modified Crops

    From the moment the bill to ban genetically engineered crops on the island of Hawaii was introduced in May 2013, it garnered more vocal support than any the County Council here had ever considered, even the perennially popular bids to decriminalize marijuana.

  6. GMO Trees Threaten Global Forests

    Genetically engineered trees are being planted in the southeast United States to produce paper and the wood pellets used in power plants. Created by ArborGen, a biotechnology company, these GMO trees threaten the environment in multiple different ways. GMO trees require twice as much water as regular trees and spread their pollen and seeds long distances, resulting in a decrease in tree diversity.
