GEAC Quit India

 

Everything You HAVE TO KNOW about Dangerous Genetically Modified Foods from Jeffrey Smith on Vimeo.

Genetically modified seeds will gradually dominate our farm fields. Thats what the Genetic Engineering Approval Committee is trying to do. We don’t need such a committee. ‘G.E.A.C quit India’ – that is the only thing an earth loving farmer can say. Through genetic engineering, if the plant tissues are made poisonous to scare pests, it is not hard to predict, in what way that poison will affect humans and animals. We had to wait many years before identifying that the first green revolution gifted us only with reduced soil quality and deceases. GM seeds are getting prepared to become more disastrous than that, by terminating the traditional seed varieties.Now dairy farmers cannot whole heartedly feed cattle with cottonseed meal. Only time will prove that oil made from genetically modified cottonseed will only be harmful to us. Despite having precious medicinal qualities,edible oils like coconut oil, being outperformed by other edible oils, and are taking over our kitchens.

Is G.E.A.C trying to make us spray new weedicides that are harmful to the nature, soil and earth worms, in order to kill the weeds that are genetically evolved with the GM crops. When our agricultural scientists are becoming agents of weed killer brands like ‘Roundup’, farmers can only see them as enemies. No big experiments are needed to prove the harmful effects of GM crops – earth worms cannot thrive in the compost made from GM crops. Infertility of seeds are a grave threat. The possibility of spreading of unwanted infertility in other organisms can not be ignored.

The goal, if on the other hand, is to reduce food scarcity, isn’t it better to genetically modify humans? It is better to reduce the size of the stomach, hunger and quantity of food intake. Is this the only way the U.S can recover from the Recession, by selling medicines for deceases caused by using GM food? If Genetic Engineering were to increase the biodiversity by ensuring the nutrient balance of the soil, we would have welcomed it with big hands. All that Kerala and India earned from Ayurveda till date, will be destroyed from the entry of GM crops. Our water resources are already polluted and dying. The B.T. crops will add further more havoc  to their future.

We can only trust and rely upon cattle breeding, improved dairy production and organic farming techniques. Farmers becoming purely commercial and unconcerned about others health, will only destroy our future generations. We have read that cattles grazed on the B.T cotton fields in Andhra Pradesh died and the postmortem revealed holes in the hearts of these animals. The same may be the fate of humans too, by using food from B.T crops .

  • കൊള്ളാം… നല്ല ഐറ്റം.

    പക്ഷേ, എല്ലാം രാഷ്‌ട്രീയമായി മാത്രം നോക്കിക്കാണുന്ന ഇന്ത്യയില്‍ ബി ടി വഴുതനങ്ങയെ പിന്തുണയ്‌ക്കാനും ആളുണ്ട്‌. സ്വന്തം പോക്കറ്റിലേക്ക്‌ എന്തുവരുമെന്നു മാത്രം നോക്കി ഒരു ജനതയെ മുഴുവന്‍ അത്യാഹിതത്തിലേക്ക്‌ തള്ളിവിടാന്‍ മടികാണിക്കാത്ത ഇക്കൂട്ടര്‍ക്ക്‌ സ്‌തുതി പാടാനും ഇവിടെ ആളുണ്ട്‌. ഇല്ലെങ്കില്‍ ആന്ദ്രയിലെ പരുത്തികര്‍ഷകരുടെ അനുഭവം ഇവരൊന്നും മറവിയുടെ ഇരുട്ടറയിലേക്ക്‌ തള്ളുകയില്ലായിരുന്നു.
    ഇത്തരം ഉട്ടോപ്യന്‍ ആശയങ്ങളെ എതിര്‍ക്കുന്നവനെ മണ്ടനും വിഡ്‌ഢിയുമായി ചിത്രീകരിക്കുന്ന ഈ സമയത്തും ബി ടി വഴുതനങ്ങയ്‌ക്കെതിരെ പ്രതികരിക്കാന്‍ തയ്യാറായതില്‍ ഫാര്‍മറെ അഭിനന്ദിക്കുന്നു.

    Our Ayurvedic system of medicine is purely based on the traditional qualities of medicinal plants and other ingredients. The qualities of Ayurvedic preparations will be lost if Genetically Modified ingredients alone are available. So GM plants will destroy our total health and wealth, not only for us for our future generations also.

  • Excellent article. Do check out greenpeace.in. Let us fight it toghether. Many ayurvedic herbs are no longer found because of climate change due to unethical, commercialised farming.

    Let us fight it together. 🙂

  • This site is very helpful ….
    Thank you sir…
