Frankenstein Fatal Foods

NCTCS blog has written many times about the scientists of the ClimateGate CRU and how they have demonised science byfalsely labelling carbon dioxide as a pollutant. Now we find that the scientists behind GM food are introducing a killer virus.

From the UK Mail-on-Line:

Uncovered, the 'toxic' gene hiding in GM crops:

  • EU watchdog reveals approval for GM foods fails to identify poisonous gene
  • 54 of the 86 GM plants approved contain the dangerous gene
  • Gene found in food for farm animals producing meat, milk and eggs
  • Biotech supporters argue there is no evidence that GM foods are harmful
A new study has been carried out by the European Union's official food watchdog, the European Food Safety Authority(EFSA) which revealed that the international approval process for GM crops failed to identify the gene.
The findings are particularly powerful because the work was carried out by independent experts, rather than GM critics
It was led by Nancy Podevin, who was employed by EFSA, and Patrick du Jardin, of the Plant Biology Unit at the University of Liege in Belgium.
They discovered that 54 of the 86 GM plants approved for commercial growing and food in the US, including corn and soya, contain the viral gene, which is known as 'Gene VI'.
Some of these crops are fed to  farm animals that produce milk meat and eggs which can result in producing proteins that toxic to humans.
Critics say the revelations make clear that the GM approvals process, which has been in place for 20 years, is fatally flawed. 

They argue the only correct response is to recall all of the crops and food products involved. Director of the campaigning group, GM Freeze, Pete Riley, said the discovery of the gene, 'totally undermines claims that GM technology is safe, precise and predictable'.
He said: 'This is a clear warning the GM is not sufficiently understood to be considered safe. 'Authorisation for these crops must be suspended immediately, and they should be withdrawn from sale, until a full and extended review of their safety has been carried out.'
