The whole issue now of any more introduction of GMOs should be stopped immediately, because we have seen what has happened with the introduction of GMO canola and GMO soybeans…how it has destroyed the indigenous seeds and pure seeds. We no longer have any pure canola seeds or soybean seeds left in Canada. It is all now contaminated.
Monsanto always said with GMOs they would now be able to feed a hungry world… And, if you look back at Monsanto’s history, to me it’s been a history of deceit and of not telling the truth. When Monsanto and other companies said ‘PCBs were safe… DDT was safe…agent orange was safe, aspartame was safe’… and after a few years everyone found out the dangers of PCBs and DDT. And now we have the same company telling us that GMOs are safe.
The most important thing to understand about genetic engineering is that it is really an attempt to say hey listen no matter how unsustainable our technologies, we’re not gonna’ change the technology to fit the natural living systems – we’re gonna change the living systems so they fit the technology. We all know how horrible factory farming is and one of the problems they have with egg laying chickens, with hens, is that they have a mothering instinct – they want to brute. And here you see one of the brain experiments genetically engineering chickens to take out the mothering instinct.
This fish, if let loose through biological pollution in natural waters, will destroy the native fish. It’s very important to understand . One is this biological contamination is very different from chemical contamination. If you have an oil spill, it will dilute over time… This is not chemical pollution. This is living pollution…biological pollution. Once these fish are released into a bay or a river you can’t recall them… In the United States we have yet to have or first law – we don’t have a single law which regulates this kind of biological pollution. It is completely unregulated. Even though its effects will be catastrophic.
