Killing off insects in the web of life
introduction of genetically modified foods (GMO) tampers with the essence of
life in an experiment with an unknown outcome and no real way to undue the
damage. The FDA purposely does not require labeling of GMO food, since no one
who understands the issue would ever purchase it. This makes it all the more
difficult to locate healthful food.”

This series exposes the outright fraud against
peoples’ lives and the contempt for American citizens (and citizens of the
world who eat our grains) with the injection of Genetically Modified Organism
foods by the highest representatives in our U.S. Congress.
Call it a “financial cartel” that allows GMOs
to be fed to our citizenry, but worse, for the love of money, those power
elites accelerate the destruction of our Natural World.
We humans grow too clever and too arrogant to
understand the long-term penalties we heap on Mother Nature until she finds no
other answers but to claw back at us, i.e., cancers, disease and more aberrant
environmental disasters to come.
Every crop in America, Canada, Australia and
much of the third world where GMO advocates like ADM and Monsanto can force
their “Frankensteinization” on farmers—they push it.
Even with all the evidence piling up, those
same elites hammer any opposition into the ground. They “bribe” the FDA officials to not label
any GMO foods so you don’t know what you’re eating.
We destroy our own bodies by our actions, but
we also obliterate the Natural World and its inhabitants.
Today around the world, trillions of bees
suffer “colony collapse” via GMO crops.
Nature cannot figure out how to deal with plants that suffer genetic
modification or DNA change-ups.
GMO foods represent a pitcher throwing an
orange to the catcher in a Major League Baseball game. Within several pitches, the orange wouldn’t
hold its form from the violent treatment.
If the batter connected with the orange, it would splatter all over the
field. Result: the game couldn’t
continue. The players could not play and
the spectators would go home.
But in GMO production, the consequences
cannot be seen as quickly, however those “errors” against Mother Nature will surface
well into the future.
Ethan Huff, science writer for Natural News said, “A pair of studies recently published in the
journal Science raises dire warnings about the continued decline of
crop-pollinating insects all over the world, and what this means for the future
of the world's food supply. Both studies highlight the fact that wild
pollinators like bumblebees, butterflies, and beetles are basically
disappearing, and that industrial agriculture, which includes
genetically-modified organisms (GMOs), are a major factor causing this insect
“At least half a dozen other studies published in the last couple of years have
arrived at similarly disturbing findings. They do, however, shed further light
on how the situation has progressed throughout the decades, pointing to
corporate monoculture practices, shrinking forests and wild lands, and general
changes in physical landscapes as some of the primary culprits in promoting
this ruinous trend.”
We not only change the DNA of our fellow planetary
travelers, but we destroy their habitat.
We seem to think no consequences will befall us.
“The earth does not
belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the
blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a
strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.”

Last week, I interviewed with Ross Kaminsky at www.KOA.com
in Denver, Colorado. Mind you, this
young man, about 30, sounded brilliant and highly articulate. I liked him.
I spoke about America adding 100 million immigrants and a total of 138
million people by 2050—a scant 36 years from now. I brought facts and compelling information to
the show. I attempted to show him and
the public the ramifications of adding 138 million people—and that, we could not
sustain such numbers and our environment.
He sat across from me saying, “We don’t have a population
problem. We have plenty of water and oil.
The oceans can absorb all our carbon footprint.”
I said, “You’re speaking with assumptions as if they were
facts. You make statements based on
belief where I make them based on facts from my research.”
He dumbfounded me with his arrogance that we can keep adding
endless people with no consequences. He wanted everyone to live a free
life. I countered with the fact that as
our population numbers rise, our freedoms decline along with balance in our
Natural World. That fact cannot be
I explained how our oceans suffer acidification and that
reefs die with carbon footprint and how marine life cannot endure the
He wouldn’t hear of it.
Mind you, this young man, traveled on six continents like I have
traveled. He lives in denial and defends
it. Along with him, the majority of the American public feels the same.
We see the same denial with our leaders who advocate for
GMOs in plants and fish—in the face of facts.
“In one of the studies, researchers from Montana State University
compared insect data collected in the late 1800s to similar data collected in the
same test location in the 1970s,” said Huff. “They then compiled current data
from the same area to compare to both of these other two data sets, upon which
they discovered that the number of unique wild bee species had dropped by
“What is perhaps more disturbing, however, is the fact that researchers
observed modern bees to be generally interacting less with plants than they
used to in previous generations. According to the data, the overall number of
interactions between bees and plants has also dropped by roughly half,
indicating a serious problem as far as the general food
is concerned, as
about 75 percent of global food crops rely on pollination by animals.”
Managed honeybees do not pollinate crops as well as
The second study
troubles me further: having found that
pollinating insects in general, which include a wide range of insects and other
animals, continue vanishing from their normal habitats and foraging areas.
“Based on field
trials conducted in 20 different countries, wild insects are clearly on the
decline everywhere, and managed honeybee colonies established to replace them
in many areas are failing to pick up where the wild honeybees left off,” said
"In landscapes with lower diversity and lower abundance of wild insects,
the crops had less fruits," explains Lucas Garibaldi, author of the second
study. "Wild insects pollinated way more efficiently: Flowers produced
twice as many fruits after being visited by wild insects and were more
consistent in their production than when visited by honeybees."
“Some “leaders” blame climate destabilization and other outside factors for
this mysterious decline in crop pollinators
,” said Huff. “But the major elephant
in the room, and the one that the
is desperately trying to avoid, is GMOs
and the chemical-based technologies used to grow them. As
we have covered time and time again, neonicotinoids and other pesticide and
herbicide products are responsible for weakening and killing off bees and other
crop pollinators, particularly in North America where GMOs
are most widely cultivated.”
"The proof is obvious that one of the major reasons of the bees' decline
is by the ingestion of GMO proteins," explains a report by Brit Amos from Global
about the decline of bee colonies. "The truth is that organic
farming is relatively untouched as the bee crisis is concerned. Organic farming
maintains the diversity of the eco-system and preserves the quality of the
The more I research into
what we and our children face with our “disfiguring” the Natural World with our
poisons and GMO assault, the more sickened I am in my mind and heart. Since I lack any power or influence, someone
like Bill Gates or Warren Buffet needs to fund campaigns to stop GMO
production. After all, it’s their kids,
too, who must live in this world.
All of this GMO
nightmare stems from too many people needing food for survival with too many
elites willing to sacrifice the Natural World in order to make endless billions
of dollars to live in big homes, drive expensive cars and fly Lear Jets.
