Former Pro-GMO Scientist Speaks Out on the Real Dangers of Genetically Engineered Food | Alternative.

There are people who are for and those against genetically engineered food. It’s bad enough we consume a plethora of chemicals we take for granted and now we are playing around with genetics. It can be a scary thought.

“Not only are GM foods less nutritious than non-GM foods, they pose distinct health risks, are inadequately regulated, harm the environment and farmers, and are a poor solution to world hunger. Worse still, these questionable GM crops are now polluting non-GM crops, leading to contamination that cannot ever be “recalled” the way you can take a bad drug off the market … once traditional foods are contaminated with GM genes, there is no going back! Vrain expanded:3

Genetic pollution is so prevalent in North and South America where GM crops are grown that the fields of conventional and organic grower are regularly contaminated with engineered pollen and losing certification. The canola and flax export market from Canada to Europe (a few hundreds of millions of dollars) were recently lost because of genetic pollution.”

    Yes! ..and it’s pretty bad when you see the canola growing in fields where they aren’t planted. Or in the middle of the woods where it does not grow naturally. I have seen a few fields nearby where they have grown field hay … right next to their soybean/corn fields. Only the hay fields look healthy.
