After Reading This Article About The Danger Of GMOs, You Will Probably Never Want To Eat Genetically-Modified Food Again | May 22, 2019 by Michael Snyder
Unfortunately, it appears that the federal government has completely failed us. The material that I am about to share with you is deeply disturbing, and after reading this article there is a very good chance that you will never want to eat genetically-modified food ever again. But at this point it is almost impossible to completely avoid GMOs, because they are in almost everything. Unless they are specifically designated “organic”, most corn, soy, canola and sugar beets grown in America today have been genetically modified, and almost all packaged foods contain ingredients derived from at least one of those sources.
EARTH CUSTODIANS: Although Michael Snyder is an excellent news reporter, Earth Custodians must add to this that the organic label is being steadily eroded by a corporate the takeover. See the article below: We Can No Longer Rely on Organic Standard. While organics still are better than conventional produces, we no longer can fully trust the organic market. Market efficiency has completely hijack our lives.
If you know an organic farm located not too far, a weekly round trip might be a good “investment”, yes as long as money exists, we ought to see it like that, that’s our/your health after all.
In recent years, researchers have been pushing the boundaries of biology in order to come up with new “plant-based” alternatives to existing food products. Essentially, “synthetic biology” is being used “to create life forms from scratch”… Impossible’s “bleeding” veggie burger, shrimp made of algae, and vegan cheeses that melt are all making their way into restaurants and on to supermarket shelves, offering consumers a new generation of plant-based proteins that look, act, and taste far more like the real thing than ever before. What consumers may not realize, however, is that many of these new foods are made using synthetic biology, an emerging science that applies principles of genetic engineering to create life forms from scratch.
Here we’d recommend our blog on the subject: https://earthcustodians.net/blog/2019/03/30/the-scary-thing-about-synthetic-biology/
There are many dangers lurking, one of which is that “Synbio” is fond of sugar from GMO corn because a certain level of fermentation is needed, while GMO corn is been proven to promote aggressive forms of cancer. Second, take vegan cheese for example, foreign proteins are created chemically in a lab and inserted into into yeast or bacteria cells.
Make no mistake: synthetic biology is very likely used for any fake vegan meat. The Impossible Burger, for example, contains an engineered heme, a protein originally derived from soy plant roots, that gives the burger its pseudo-meat flavor, color, and texture. (see eater.com article below). Then there is also the threat of an “accidental” release of these gene edited materials into the environment among other things. But how accidental would that be, do you think?
Do yourself a favor and avoid too all vegan processed foods!
FROM THE ARTICLE QUOTED BY SNYDER: Synthetic biology is advancing so meteorically, regulatory schemes are hard pressed to keep up, Millet says, adding that, besides national laws, the industry follows World Health Organization biosafety guidance and other international regulations. But that guidance is updated every five years, so there can be a lag before the newest technology will be considered.
Indeed, what could go wrong in a 5 year time frame, considering that Synbio is invading our food supply almost exponentially?
Earth Custodians have many blogs on how hazardous the field has become, and we are not going to paraphrase ourselves, though one thing is certain: atheist science, scientism, is absolutely it out of control — and not only in the US. In EU too, lawmakers are at the mercy of the “Synbio market forces” because billions of dollars have been poured into research and profits are all what matters.

Why Genetically Engineered Foods Have Some Scientists Nervous About the Future
Synthetic food companies could gravely impact our health, environment, and economy, but the fact is that we’re in the dark | May 14, 2019 The main health concern with synthetic biology products is that they add new proteins to foods, and those new proteins may be allergenic, says Dana Perls, senior food and agriculture campaigner with Friends of the Earth. “We need to understand the short- and long-term impacts before these ingredients and products enter the market or the environment,” she says of products genetically engineered to replace animal products, and stresses the need for stronger regulations for all genetic engineering. …. Synthetic biology is advancing so meteorically, regulatory schemes are hard pressed to keep up, Millet says, adding that, besides national laws, the industry follows World Health Organization biosafety guidance and other international regulations. But that guidance is updated every five years, so there can be a lag before the newest technology will be considered. “The new wave of genetic engineering is slipping through very large loopholes,” says Perls. “People who are trying to purchase food or clothing that reflects their values are in the dark.”….https://www.eater.com/2019/5/14/18623258/impossible-foods-synthetic-lab-grown-meat-science

We Can No Longer Rely on Organic Standard (2019)
(2019) One of the genetically engineered maize plants meant for import inherits additional risks: maize MON 87411 produces a so-called double strand RNA (dsRNA). These biologically active molecules are taken up into the intestine of insects when they eat the plants; from here they can then interfere with gene regulation and cell metabolism. This will kill the insects feeding on the plants. However, the safety of these plants in regard to humans and the environment cannot be demonstrated since the underlying biological mechanisms are highly complex. …Around 70 genetically engineered plants are already allowed for import and usage for food and feed in the EU. There are no studies on long-term or combinatorial health effects arising from diets with containing a mixture of these plants. In recent years, the EU Parliament has repeatedly voted against further EU market approvals. However, these votes were completely ignored by the EU Commission. Now, the signatories to the letter are concerned that the EU Commission will allow a further dozen of these risky plants to enter the EU market.
