What is the truth on GMO's..?" 'James "Kimo" Rosen


Obama Da Dog and her master James "Kimo" Rosen recently listened to panel of Pro-GMO scientists talk story about farming food and our future at the Kapa'a Elementary school cafeteria. Our conclusion was GMO's are not the anti-Christ although many seem to differ.
Scientists  talk story about the scientific value of GMO's at a talk story session on 07-30-13 at Kapa'a elementary school cafeteria. People are believing propaganda that is hearsay. Rat's getting cancer from eating GMO food is a common scare tactic, come to learn the rats in the study that ate non GMO food also contacted cancer. The rats used in the study are the variety prone to cancer. This is one of many examples that needs to be heard.

Airfares are out of sight, Kaua'i could go Bankrupt 
What is the Truth on GMO's?

Councilman Gary Hooser the co-author of controversial bill 2491  did not show up at either talk story session about GMO farming,food and our future  on the west side or east side to learn about the scientific  realities of GMO's.

" Kaua'i could Go bankrupt."

Mr. Hooser and others are believing propaganda that is hearsay.  Rat's getting cancer from eating GMO food is a common scare tactic, come to learn from the talk story session with 5 prominent scientists that  the rats in the study that ate non GMO food also contacted cancer. The rats used in the study are the variety prone to cancer. This is one of many scarred rumors that need to be heard.

In the interim I am afraid that the   contrarians (  SouthPark calls  the ones whose parents came to Kauai on cruise ships ) the same people behind the demise of the super-ferry are back.

Councilman Hooser was instrumental in the demise of the Superferry which in turn caused the airlines to have a monopoly on inter island travel and now  charge outrageous prices. Many times you can fly from Honolulu to Las Vegas round-trip cheaper than a round-trip from Kauai to Oahu.

   Now if  bill 2491 passes it would add drastically to unemployment on Kauai, possibly leading Kaua'i to do what Detroit just did, file bankruptcy.

It's time to stand up to Hooser and  listen to facts not hearsay. Be careful of Hooser as we do not want to become losers.

A talk story session on GMO  farming food and our future
was attended by approximately 200 people

The audience listens intently to the scientists discuss the facts of GMO science.

Graham Kovařík Looking beyond propaganda from either side I believe an extensive environmental impact study should be done to see not only what effect there will be to our island but what if any long term side effects there may be from consuming these products.

Diana LaRussa Gather more information from the other side that's backed by science and then you'll have a balanced opinion. And make sure any study you use, whether pro or con, has been funded by an independent source. Then, your opinion will have greater impact, without bias.

Pete Antonson Trouble is, the 10 year Greenpeace antiGMO campaign, financed by organic conglomerates like BIO Austria, does not reveal it's involvement in the planting of junk science information on sites with names like gentlefarmer.com. It's a shame; but, Greenpeace has lost it's soul on this one.

Pete Antonson A report by Dr. Ronald Herring of Cornell University.
http://www.columbia.edu/~sr793/doc/RHerring.pdf
exposed the so called Monsanto Terminator Seed as a hoax along with the Indian GMO farmer suicides.
Both hoaxes were started in India, in 1998, by the same Vandana Shiva that traveled to Kauai in January and fired up the letterwriters.

Pete Antonson The 2012 French Rat study imploded under peer review: “the authors’ conclusions cannot be regarded as scientifically sound because of inadequacies in the design, reporting, and analysis of the study.” yet Kilaueans are still quoting it in TGI. Apparently, in Kilauea you get a doctorate along with your pizza.

You, Pete Antonson and 12 others like this.

Ka'iulani Kai Morrighan Genetic Modification is NOT the enemy...
It is the specific modifications that the big companies have been secretly doing and their disastrous I intended side effects that are truly vile.

The "support GMO" banner is short sighted, as the majority of the studies done on it are truly alarming and extremely short sighted.

IMO: "the promotion and support of the GMO movement as it currently is (and won't change until it is actually wounded by bad press and real education) is short sighted. It is a short term gain with long term consequences that we will be paying for with our shortened futures and shortened lives for our children."

Quinn Bouvier said...

All conspiracy theory. And what studies are you referring to? The rat tumor study...lol. That study and many others that anti-gmo activists and mainland special interest groups like to refer to have been debunked by scientists worldwide??!! Hahaha...those are comical. There is no GMO movement. via Facebook-Save Kauai farms-GMOs have been around for more than 20 years. The only movement I see is the anti-science, luddism that is trying scare people by pounding them with lies about biotechnology and agriculture. It's unfortunate and a waste of time. Science does not have anti-GMO'ers like Hooser and Bynum's back. Can we stick to the facts already and stop this witch hunt????

Vis Facebook-save Kauai farms-"In California the GMO proponents did not want GMO labeling. What are they hiding? Protect the local population and keep GMO's out of Hawiaii. Organic is the way to go."

Kauai farms said...

Welcome to the conversation! Why do you think organic is the way to go?

Trevor Ford said...

via Facebook-Save kauai Farms-"Fact... When a company applies such deadly chemicals that their employees are required to wear chem suits or (class chemical protection according to the NFPA and EPA, then there is obviously something wrong.
200 yards or 2 football fields is gracious. Does the wind stop at 200 yards? What is the weight of the chemical once it's sprayed into the air and is in ppm form? These companies do not want the public to know the truth.
Deadly chemicals sprayed in the air are ingested, and adsorbed through the skin by our grandparents, parents, family, and children.
Bottom line 80 tons of chemicals (disclosed or undisclosed) is not safe for anyone."

Trevor Ford said...

That's "( Class B ) chemical protection"

Ka'iulani Kai Morrighan said...

Quin: exactly my point, GMO has been around for over 20 years! (And most no one knew about it because it was snuck in through the back door)

What has happened to our health as a country in the same time frame? Look at the vast increase in little ailments that were uncommon 20+ years ago that are all over the place today!

Do you think at least part of it may be what we are eating? (I.E. GMO)

I believe in genetic modification, I believe in body modifications, however once I realized SPECIFIC things they were doing in order to "modify" the food at the base level (I.E. food that is basically poison, and that had many "unique patented compounds" that do not exist in nature and that our bodies don't recognize as FOOD) that was when I realized it was a horror movie in real life.

If the "modification" was to make the food more nutritious or digestible then it would be great... But it ISN'T! The "modifications" we are talking about are making the food have pesticide (that means POISON) built into it!

...and it is Only just beginning to surface, because there was a legal chess game played with the government. It is atrocious. We should be able to know what it is we are putting INTO our bodies!

Trevor Ford said...

This sounds so familiar.. Hmm that's right the TABACO companies... Almost verbatim "it's not poison, it does not harm anyone" but now we know the TRUTH. They still sell it, it's just labeled, give the people a choice.. Full disclosure.!!

Some nice comments. Who is Graham Kovorik?

Graham is a very nice young man who used to be a lifeguard at Kapa'a pool. I believe he works currently as a sales associate for a nutritional company? I am right Graham?

Hooser was instrumental in the demise of the supper-ferry which is the reason for the extraordinary huigh priced airfares because the airlines have the monoloity on inter-island Island travel, soon 500 people may be out of work because of Hooser and Kauai may be on the way to bankruptcy. Gasoline is dangerous, yet all the contrarians drive their Monster trucks and SUV's to go to the health food store to buy their tofu. Wake up people.
