Surely there is no one reading this who does not know and respect the danger of misuse of pesticides and herbicides. Buy a can of bug spray, Round Up, and read the directions. An obvious suggestion: do not spray up the nose.
“…from the origins, chemicals have been a form of warfare. It is a war against the soil, against our reserves of fresh water, and against all microbes and insects that are necessary for the growing of healthy foods.” 1998 The Economist.
It’s also been warfare against all life on earth.
The biotech giants today argue they are using a natural mutation. But introducing pesticides and herbicides artificially into plants is not, by any stretch of the imagination, anything nature has done since nature began.
The biotech corn, grown on Kauai, is not raised for human consumption. It’s raised to feed bovine-beef and dairy-for human consumption. These cows are ingesting pesticides and herbicides. You eat their produce and you’re ingesting pesticides and herbicides.
Worse-Darwin gets involved- some weeds and pests become immune to the old toxins requiring that more and stronger toxins are needed to keep the plants alive. The biotech industry does not want to reveal what these new toxins are. Or how often they must be used.
We, who breathe the air where these toxins are sprayed, breathe it in. We, who eat the beef and drink the milk products, ingest it.
Good or bad? You decide.
