A man named Don Huber. WHo is Huber? He was a well respected Monsanto scientist who finally reached retirement age, and with his retirement pensions ecured, he has been able to investigate the Gm seeds, foods and crop situation.

Among other things he has tried to let us consumers know is that

One) Veterinarians in MN have found that cows that are fed Gm grains often are not able to reproduce! This pretty much could mean the end of cows.
But ti has larger implications - after all, if cows have been seriously harmed by this stuff, which only became pervasive in terms of their diet in the last eight years or so, what are the repercussins for human beings? Any and everything a person eats or drink is that has High Fructose Corn Syrup in it is GM - there are only a few manufacturers of HFCS, adn all of them use Gm growing media for the stuff.

So in another eight years, expect to see a serious decline in reproduction. Warren Porter PhD of Univ Madison WI has been saying our pesticide use was going to impair our reproductive ability as a species, and now that reproductive ability is under attack from our foods as well. Most American Corn and Rice is now Gm, even if it is labelled organic - if grown in the USA, it is Gm contaminated.

Two) The amount of contamination from fungal and bacterial growths on account of the heavy duty use of RoundUp on the Gm crops is causing explosive growth in items like vomitoxin, and fusarium. This means that farmers are not getting paid as much for their grains. Contaminated grain doesn't get the same price.

Three) Many scientists in other nations no longer refer to American "peer reviewed" studies in terms of issues regarding the safety of Gm or other items and procedures.
Why is this happening? That our scientists and their recommendations are now ignored? Our scientific research is no longer conducted to meet International Protocols demanded of researchers. instead Our scientists are expected to deliver the verdict that Big Industry wants, be it regarding vaccines, Gm issues, pesticides, oil pipeline approval etc.
