    Monsanto has revealed that a common insect pest has developed resistance to its flagship genetically modified (GM) product in India.

    The Scary Truth about Genetically Engineered Insect Control

    Facts You Must Know…

    By Jeffrey M. Smith

    The biotech industry is fond of saying that they offer genetically modified (GM) crops that resist pests, conjuring up the image of insects staying away from GM crop fields.

    But "resisting pests" is just a euphemism, for "contains its own built-in pesticide." When bugs take a bite of the GM plant, the toxin splits open their stomach and kills them!

    The idea that we consume that same toxic pesticide in every bite is hardly appetizing!

    But the biotech companies and the Environmental Protection Agency-which regulates plant produced pesticides-tell us not to worry.

    What are Acceptable Alternatives to Agave?

    If you are craving something sweet, your best bet is to reach for an apple or a pear. And if you give yourself a sugar holiday for even a couple of weeks, you will be amazed at how much those cravings will decrease. But be sure and count the grams of fructose and keep your total fructose from fruit below 15 grams per day as you are sure to consume plenty of "hidden" fructose in the other foods you will be eating.

    You can use the table below to help you count your fructose grams.

They are banned in many other countries outside of the U.S., and we have never performed safety tests on them in this country. Or I should say, we are the test population.

    In light of the controversy, I called the Shasta County Office of Education to ask what the official position on GMOs in school lunches was.

    His comments came shortly after France’s food watchdog said it had concluded that the genetically modified corn is safe, contradicting an earlier report that led to the French ban.
