A revolution in our food supply and in agriculture has taken place in the last 15 years that has remained unknown, secret or unrecognized – depending on your point of view. However the efforts to label genetically modified organisms by consumers and the forceful resistance to the right to know what we eat by corporations that produce the genetically engineered corn, soy, beets, wheat, alfalfa etc. that are already in our food have triggered a fundamental question. Roundup ready corn and soy or bt corn and soy have already replaced all but 10% of all corn and soy grown in the US using the argument that they are nutritious, safe and ecologically sound – so why are corporations not proud of their product and want to label GMO food as it goes on the market?
GMO plants were introduced for unlimited consumption for humans and animals without independent safety testing. The reason is that in 1992, under George Herbert Walker Bush, GMO plants were declared substantially equivalent as the plants we have known since the beginning of agriculture and therefore not in need of any special safety testing.
Prof. Don Huber is Professor Emeritus of Plant Pathology. He taught, researched and published at Purdue University for thirty-five years on plant physiology, microbiology, pathology and soil-borne disease control. Huber came out of retirement to speak out on the dangers of genetically modified plants and the herbicide glyphosate that is applied in every planting of RR engineered corn and soy.
