Gene -Editing Stocks Plunge After Latest Research Cancer Risks Revealed

CRISPR stocks hit after current research indicates cause for serious health concerns.

The importance of scientific integrity , due diligence and thorough research cannot be understated when considering this Gene Editing technique for our food supply, which the Europeans still characterize as GMO (an abbreviation the public grasps rather than using bioengineered or  “BE” terminology as USDA just proposed).  Further, US food labeling requirements are proposed to shift from FDA to USDA as CRSPR technology has been given green lights and there has been much industry PR in US media reports touting the benefits, without addressing the risks. While the Europeans have taken a more cautious approach, it is obvious the US is on a more reckless track when it comes to protecting consumers of GMO food.  At the same time, US Organic Standards are being weakened.

Global Collusion Accelerates with Monsanto’s Agrichemicals and Pesticide-dependent GMO Food System

Agrichemical pesticide Glyphosate (active ingredient in Roundup) is likely the most abused chemical in the world, and can be found  in the most of the world’s food and water supplies with serious repercussions to families virtually everywhere. Don’t think Monsanto disappeared – it’s hiding behind a new name after being recently purchased by another large global chemical company Bayer.  Thus, the pernicious work of pesticide toxins increasing in food supplies deceptively continues …. only hidden under a new nameplate.  For some of the latest disconcerting health and agricultural updates, please see here and here.

Beyond being the active ingredient in Roundup and many other crop and lawn care products, the toxic pesticide chemical had originally been marketed as biodegradable, but with industry safety testing methods later found to be compromised,  Glyphosate is especially harmful to children, poisoning populations, water supplies, and whole ecosystems around the world…..leaving consumers in the dark about protecting their families as profits have taken priority over family health and safety.  Consumers have little chance to find the truth as previous posts show the virtual hijacking of the US food labeling process.
