The FDA Will NOT Require Labels On Food From Genetically Modified Animals

The FDA has officially announced that it WILL NOT require warning labels on food that is created from genetically modified animals. So now you will never get to know if what you are eating is from a genetically engineered lifeform.


Do you really want to be eating a spider-goat or a cow-pig?

Those things actually exist.

In fact, WebMD says that dozens of genetically modified animals are under development as we speak.

So how soon will we see these abominations show up on the shelves of our supermarkets?

NaturalNews reports that the FDA is ready to approve genetically engineered animals to be introduced into the food chain.

Since the FDA will not require any special labeling, when food from genetically modified animals does show up in the stores you will not even know it.

The following is a description of this genetic engineering process from the FDA's own website: "Genetic engineering generally refers to the use of recombinant DNA (rDNA) techniques to introduce new characteristics or traits into an organism. When scientists splice together pieces of DNA and introduce a spliced DNA segment into an organism to give the organism new properties, it's called rDNA technology. The spliced piece of DNA is called the rDNA construct. A GE animal is one that contains an rDNA construct intended to give the animal new characteristics or traits."

Scientists in China have even created a fluorescent green pig, and some of the offspring of that pig even had fluorescent features.

But wait, there's more!

The FDA has actually announced that the offspring of cloned animals could be in our food supply right now and that there is nothing that they can do about it.

Apparently they feel that it is perfectly safe and they aren't really worried about it.

So you could be eating clones animal parts as you read this article and not even know it.

Isn't that comforting?

Of course we eat tomatoes with roach genes in them and we eat corn with insecticide grown inside of it every day, so why should we be worried about some cloned animals, eh?

The reality is that almost all corn and almost all soy has been genetically altered.

And guess what?

The genetically modified crops people have been eating already are getting people sick.

One German court actually ordered Monsanto to release to the public a controversial ninety day study on rats that reported that rats fed genetically modified corn developed the following conditions: "allergies (increased basophils), in response to infections, toxins and various diseases including cancer (increased lymphocytes and white blood cells), and in the presence of anemia (decreased reticulocyte count) and blood pressure problems (decreased kidney weights). There were also increased blood sugar levels, kidney inflammation, liver and kidney lesions, and other changes."

Kind of makes you want a corn on the cob, eh?

The reality is that introducing genetically modified animals and crops into our food chain is MUCH more damaging to the environment than global warming ever could be.

And you know what the truly frightening thing is?

Once we let these engineered plants and animals out into the environment and they start breeding and reproducing we can NEVER put the genie back into the bottle.

We are permanently changing the earth, and if these changes end up being disastrous there will be very little that we can do to turn back the clock.

May God have mercy on us all.


  1. Yes, unfortunately we've come to a place where the corporate food-industry is completely unethical and the USDA almost completely corrupt.

    But at the same time there's a huge revolution underway against this sorry state of affairs.

    Buying your food from knowledgeable co-ops is helpful, but even better yet is to buy direct from a farmer whose methods and ethics you know and agree with. "Know your farmer". Otherwise, you really have no idea anymore what you're eating.

    And it's really easy enough to do. Start asking around about CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture) in your area. My wife and I buy probably 80% of our food now right from the farm. Meat, eggs, milk, veggies, even bread, pizza, cheese, popcorn - this new generation of farmers are pretty savvy in what they offer. Plus, by buying direct you're supporting small-scale, truly organic farming...which benefits our whole world in a myriad of ways.

  2. But genitically modified food have their own clear use in this populated world to meet the needs of the people.. right?/FDA's approval can provide a scope for different research companies too inorder to develop some hope towards other innovations...
