Monsanto’s GMOs have made America’s food supply toxic, and are present in over 75% of the average American diet and they don’t even know it due to a media blackout). Genetic engineering is combining 2 or more life forms that would never mate in nature, in order to create a new life form so that it could be patented (like a fish and a tomato). In order to do this, the genes of the organisms are injected with virus, bacteria and/or metal, so that the genes will fit together. These genes then commonly mutate into new unknown life forms, with unknown implications.
Monsanto avoided FDA testing of GMOs by using the dubious talents of Michael Taylor, who started as a lawyer specializing in public policy, then he became the FDA Commissioner of Public Policy, then vice president of Monsanto, and is currently a food advisor to the FDA. Taylor got FDA approval of GMOs when he held office in the FDA in the 1990’s. He went to work for the FDA and argued that food has been around for millions of years, so food is safe; he then postulated that GMOs were “substantially equivalent” to food, therefore, GMOs are safe.
Taylor’s career is the definition of the “revolving door” (in and out of government office to affect policy in favor of corporations). He is the 2nd cousin of Tipper Gore.
There have been several studies, as well as Monsanto’s own data, that shows that GMOs cause liver and kidney damage.
