There are some things man is not supposed to do. Screwing around with seeds is one of them. God created this earth perfectly the first go ‘round. There is no need to try to improve on perfection.
If you have viewed any of the videos recommended on the About page (especially Food Matters and The Future of Food), you are familiar with the name Monsanto. Monsanto is a huge corporation that provides the pesticides used by farmers. They are also trying to play God by altering the genetic makeup of seeds.
Cause and Effect
Newton’s law of motion says, “Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.” Well, Monsanto’s act of farting around with the genetic code for our produce has created undesirable ripples in the law of nature. Aside from potentially being the reason for anti-biotic resistant bacteria (part of the gene alteration procedure is to insert an antibiotic marker into the gene), it may also be the blame for the decreasing bee population, not to mention the monarch butterflies.
Don’t take my word for it, do your own research.
Anyway, the reason for this post is that I recently received a newsletter from the folks at The Future of Food where they include an article from the Wall Street Journal. The WSJ article discusses how the Monsanto corn plant has given rise to a super bug.
Monsanto created the corn seed to be resistant to a particular corn earworm. Apparently survival of the fittest is in full tilt because the earworm has evolved and is now resistant to the genetically altered seed and Monsanto’s pesticides. Check out the article for yourself.
When will mankind learn?
