The Toxic Gene Spill: What You Should Know About GMO Pollution

The Toxic Gene Spill: What You Should Know About GMO Pollution

Aided by the government, biotech companies like Monsanto are pushing the commericalization of genetically modified crops without consent from the public.

Without laws that require the proper labeling of GMOs, the government has denied families the right to choose what they eat.

In this video released by Natural News, Institute for Responsible Technology founder Jeffrey Smith explains the genetic pollution of the world that’s being caused by GMOs.

“Never before have we fed the products of an infant science to the entire population, or released it into the environment without a way to fully recall it,” Smith points out in the video. “So we need to cap the gene spill. Put it back in the laboratory where it belongs”

Watch more below:

The Institute for Responsible Technology is a world leader in educating policy makers and the public about genetically modified (GM) foods and crops. They investigate and report their risks and impact on health, environment, the economy and agriculture, as well as the problems associated with current research, regulation, corporate practices and reporting.
