Morrisons, Siansburys, Co-Op and M&S have joined Tesco in allowing GMO fed chickens on their shelves.! This is the tip of the ice burg.!
There is an International protest against GMO on 25th May, I urge you all to organise to join in, if you value choice about what you eat, because if GMO is allowed into our food chain, we will have let the genie out of the bottle, forever.!
Cross contamination and patented law suits will be the order of the day, if we allow Monsanto to get a foot hold on our food supply.
Not only is this vile virus a health hazard to humans, but it is destroying our environment too, re bees, etc.
Plus it is attempting to own Mother Nature via its patented seeds, thereby selling us dangerous produce with a corporate stamp.!
We must all wake up to this onslaught against nature and our right to chose. Please get out in force and demand an end to this profit lead evil against nature now.

Then how about you post the facts OP?

You're asking people to 'get out in force and demand an end' to something that you haven't even bothered to explain.

Dawndonna Sat 18-May-13 16:22:46

Nononsense
May we have some empirical evidence please. Peer reviewed scientific papers, for example.

Tee2072 Sat 18-May-13 16:22:49

Can I suggest you not be sucked in by SPAMMERS, claig?

claig Sat 18-May-13 16:25:02

Tee, nononsensemumof2 knows what she is talking about and obviously feels strongly enough about it to start a few threads about it. I hadn't heard this news on the BBC, so I am glad that she has made me aware of it.

WorraLiberty Sat 18-May-13 16:26:54

claig can you point to anything the OP has written that suggests she knows what she's talking about?

Until she she backs up what she's saying with evidence or facts, it comes across as nothing but hot air.

claig Sat 18-May-13 16:29:30

Worra, she said
"There is an international protest against GMO on 25th May"

Are you saying she is misinformed?

I thought everybody knew about GMOs and the potential risks to health.

WorraLiberty Sat 18-May-13 16:31:56

I'm not talking about when the protest is is going to be confused

I have no idea whether she's been misinformed about the whole subject because she couldn't be arsed to try and link to any info about it.

And no, not everyone does know about GMOs and the potential risks to health

<<sits back waiting for claig to explain everything>> hmm

I think what OP is trying to say is that the chickens for sale have been fed with GM (genetically modified) feed.

Here - I found a slightly more coherent news article:

As I understand it, but I'm not a scientific bod and I may be wrong, GM crops are already out there?

And most of those crops are fed to animals.

So the genie is already out of the bottle.

And the OP's poor phrasing and spelling and inarticulate use of grammar does not inspire confidence.

EndoplasmicReticulum Sat 18-May-13 16:36:13

I think if you are trying to put a point across - and OP does have a point here - it is better to sound as if you are not wearing a tinfoil hat.

WorraLiberty Sat 18-May-13 16:37:35

I'm not fussed about the OP's spelling and grammar

I just find it odd she's asking people to do something without posting any info/facts at all.

We're just expected to take her slightly hysterical sounding word for it.

Tee2072 Sat 18-May-13 16:39:56

It's not a new thing. It's not even necessarily a bad thing.

What it is, is a thing the OP is spewing with no facts to back her up.

That's the part that's got me going hmm.

Haven't KFC been selling this type of chicken for years?

claig Sat 18-May-13 16:41:08

Pacific, just google it. You'll be pleased you did.

Don't you remember the early 90s, I think it was, when the newspapers were in tune with the public and for a whole week they ran stories about frankenfood etc and when it was top of the agenda.

The public don't want it, but the mega corporations do.

I've never marched or been on a protest in my life, but that week I phoned one of the green movements and asked them if they were organising a national march in London to put a stop to it, and they told me they had no national marches planned and I should contact my local area. I knew right then that they weren't serious about stopping it, because the public was united in that week and could have ended it then.

claig Sat 18-May-13 16:42:18

'I just find it odd she's asking people to do something without posting any info/facts at all.'

She probably thinks you all know about it already and that she doesn't need to spell it out.

nononsensemumof2 Sat 18-May-13 16:42:24

What is frightening to me is that mothers out there do not know about this.
We are actually all sleep walking into Mother Nature being OWNED by American Corporations such as Monsanto.
They not only wish to contaminate our natural food but wish to sell it back to us at inflated prices, once ownership via patents on their hazardous chemicals are found in the DNA.!
Its the MOST scandalous crime against humans since Hitler, its Food Fascism, and once the genie is let out of the bag their is no going back.!

Tee2072 Sat 18-May-13 16:43:56

Okay, I'm calling Goodwin's Law. Hitler's been mentioned. OP automatically loses the argument.

claig Sat 18-May-13 16:44:27

'So the genie is already out of the bottle.'

Freddie, I think you are right. I think they have been allowed to use a small percentage in animal feed already.

I also have on small problem with OP's last post...Monsanto isn't American.

It's British.

Nope, you just lost the argument. Godwin's Law.

Tee2072 Sat 18-May-13 16:45:40

Well, international, I guess.

Look! Facts!
