Buzzy has asked us to prepare lunch for him today. He never turns down the opportunity to enjoy a good meal. Once we have prepared our meal, let’s settle down and see what Buzzy has been up to.
Today we are creating Corn Tacos. You will need 1 pound of ground beef, a package of taco seasoning and 4 corn tacos. Mix the meat with the spice packet and fry until browned. Place meat in your tacos and add shredded lettuce, cheese and pimentos. I thought it best to keep things simple today, because no matter what we eat there is bound to be some poison in it! Buzzy will fill us in on the gory details.
Lunchpoppers, the Monsanto Corporation is in the business of growing genetically modified food. The food we have been consuming comes with many risks. I know this personally, because I recently had occasion to attend a state function. I landed on a corn kernel and had a bite or two. Later on I felt awful. I caught a cold immediately and couldn’t think straight. Researchers have been warning us about the dangers of GM foods, but efforts to get the word out have been thwarted. Researchers who post their findings have been threatened with funding cuts. In one instance, a renowned scientist Arpad Pusztai, a Fellow of the Royal Society in Edinburgh, was suspended from a position he held for 35 years, because he dared to suggest that GM foods severely damaged the immune systems of rats. Can you imagine what these foods can do to my organs. After all I am just a fly on the wall.
Congress has gone out of its way to protect Monsanto from liability. I saw a provision that was inserted into the HR933 Senate Continuing Resolution spending bill that protects Monsanto. President Obama reneged on a promise he made during his 2007 campaign that would have required labeling of genetically modified products.
If you find the thought of ingesting these foods troubling, you may have to leave the country. Russia suspended imports from Monsanto corn because a French study linked the corn to cancer. France has a ban in place as does Ireland, Japan, Egypt, Switzerland, Greece, Hungary, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Peru and South Australia.
LunchPoppers, it’s time to really look into this matter. The food you are eating may be making you sick. Remember, the price of freedom and good health is eternal vigilance.
