Very early Monsanto advertisement


 1. A threat to life: The Convention on Biodiversity recognizes that genetic engineering is a threat to the amount and variety of life on the planet.

2. They're unhealthy: Scientists reviewing data from Monsanto's own studies "have proven that genetically engineered foods are neither sufficiently healthy or proper to be commercialized."

3. Allergens: Biotech's scattershot technique of spraying plant cells with a buckshot of foreign genes that hit chromosomes in random spots can trigger the expression of new allergens and change the character of plant proteins.

4. The dairy's different: Milk and dairy products from cows injected with genetically engineered growth hormones are different from normal milk and dairy products.

5. Birth defects: The third generation of hamsters fed genetically engineered soy suffered slower growth, a high mortality rate, and a bizarre birth defect: fur growing in their mouths. Many also lost the ability to have pups.

6. It makes a difference: Animals fed genetically engineered feed are different from animals fed conventional and organic feed.

7. Gene transfer: A single serving of genetically engineered soy canresult in horizontal gene transfer, where the bacteria in the human gut adopts the soy's genetically engineered DNA.

8. They're different: Genetically engineered foods are different from normal foods.

9. Testing: Genetically engineered foods have not been tested to determine whether they are safe for human consumption.

10. They're everywhere: Almost all non-organic processed food and animal products in the U.S. today contain ingredients that come from genetically engineered crops or from animals given genetically engineered feed, vaccines or growth hormones.
Genetically Engineered Foods Should Be Labeled!

Why aren't genetically engineered foods labeled?
The health and reproductive problems facing "Generation Monsanto."
How Monsanto won friends and influenced people in the U.S. government.

 Kellogg's loves its Monsanto-made Frankenfoods!
In Kellogg's most recent letter to consumers, "Consumer Specialist" Christina Calleros writes:
Biotech ingredients are safe and have become common in the open market. Sixty to seventy percent of packaged foods in the U.S. include biotechnology crops. Even organic ingredients can contain biotech ingredients due to cross-pollination.

Please take a moment to write to Calleros. Tell her that Frankenfoods are not safe! 

Let her know that organic consumers don't appreciate Kellogg's attitude toward the genetic contamination of organic! 

The Supreme Court recently ruled that the potential of genetically engineered crops to pollute organic varieties is a reason to hold back Monsanto's Frankencrops ~ not promote them!
Join the Kellogg's boycott!

Bear Naked, Morningstar Farms & Kashi are all part of the Kellogg Company.

Unless the product is "USDA Organic", don't buy anything by the Kellogg Company until they stop using genetically engineered ingredients!

FACEBOOK ACTION: Plaster the "walls" of Kellogg's, Bear Naked, Morningstar Farms & Kashi with the "Frosted Fakes" image and encourage their "fans" to join the boycott. Paste this link at their Pages:
