It has been proven that not only in Russia, but also in many other countries in the world, GMOs are dangerous. Methods of obtaining the GMOs are not perfect, therefore, at this stage, all GMOs are dangerous. Consumption and use of GMOs obtained in such way can lead to tumors, cancers and obesity among animals. Bio-technologies certainly should be developed, but GMOs should be stopped. We should stop it from spreading. ” – Irina Ermakova, VP of Russia’s National Association for Genetic Safety

VLA Comment:  I would wish that Russia would turn organic.  However, in my opinion, It is  Russia’s signal to those is the know, that it is a strategy to undermine the United State’s plan to get a big piece of the currency reset based on the “resource” of owning the world food supply.  The United States has changed domestic patent law to facilitate the expansion with the support of Congress and continually attempts to change international law.

EPA advances approval for Dow’s ‘Agent Orange’ GMO crops


The US Environmental Protection Agency has revealed a proposal for mass use of Dow Chemical’s herbicide 2,4-D on the company’s genetically-engineered corn and soybeans.

Genetically Engineered “Algae” by Monsanto OH NO!

Perhaps this is why Monsanto want to genetically engineer Algae…Energy source and fertilizer at the risk of destroying the ecosystem at its most fundamental. Mutated, genetically engineered (GE) or synthetic algae that may be able to use saltwater and polluted water, but there are risks of out-of-control consequences. Critics of GE algae say that there are great risks that include mutation, contamination, becoming out-of-control, killing fish and polluting water systems.

The purpose of genetically engineered products is to lock up income-generating patents and to create monopolies.  READ MORE…

To be competitive and independent from fluctuating support from (local) policy on the long run, biofuels should equal or beat the cost level of fossil fuels. Here, algae based fuels hold great promise, directly related to the potential to produce more biomass per unit area in a year than any other form of biomass. The break-even point for algae-based biofuels is estimated to occur in about ten to fifteen years.[
