Forum Post: Even the NY Times is Now Rejecting Monsanto GMO Science

This isn’t a leak. It isn’t a timid flow. It’s a flood.

I’m talking about about the criticism of Monsanto’s so-called science of genetically-engineered food.

For the past 20 years, independent researchers have been attacking Monsanto science in various ways, and finally the NY Times has joined the crowd.

But it’s the way Mark Bittman, lead food columnist for the Times magazine, does it that really crashes the whole GMO delusion. Writing in his April 2 column, “Why Do G.M.O.’s Need Protection?”, Bittman leads with this: “Genetic engineering in agriculture has disappointed many people who once had hopes for it.”

As in: the party’s over, turn out the lights.

Bittman explains: “…genetic engineering, or, more properly, transgenic engineering – in which a gene, usually from another species of plant, bacterium or animal, is inserted into a plant in the hope of positively changing its nature – has been disappointing.”

Hm, Monsanto said all these chemicals were safe:

1) Dioxin
2) PCBs
3) DDTs

in 1982 H.W. Bush declared GMOs were safe....

Michael Taylor, Lawyer for Monsanto said these were safe chemicals and GMO was safe. Taylor became Vice President of Monsanto and then Chief of FDA under President Barak Obama. http://www.neighborsofeaston.com/wordpress/archives/2422
