We’ve been sounding the alarm about the dangers, lack of independent long term safety testing, and market monopoly threats posed by GMOs since the first worldwide March in 2013.
But in all those years, there have been few threats to the health and sanctity of our food supply bigger than this one: “The Next Huge GMO Crime,” as exposed by Pultizer Prize nominee Jon Rappoport.
Monsanto’s next big business venture is finally happening: a swarm of new GMO foods with the potential to unleash unlabeled GMOs on every corner of the food industry without our consent.
The GMOs will be created through gene editing.
“Of course, this “new and improved process” can produce unintended and unpredictable effects that ripple through plant DNA. Oops…”
Here is what Rappoport wants you to know about the “Next Huge GMO Crime” before these Frankenfood experiments become mainstream.
“GMO Crime Business” Runs Rampant in Washington
According to Rappoport, one of the most egregious offenders in allowing this coming hailstorm of GMOs is Sonny Perdue, President Donald Trump’s choice to run the USDA and a lifelong servant of Big Ag.
“We’re on the cusp of a new level of GMO crime-business, and the man in charge of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Sonny Perdue, is cheerleading from the sidelines,” Rappoport writes in his editorial, which can be read here.
“Perdue says the newest gene-edited plants won’t be any different from those developed by traditional non-GMO breeding methods…Which is like saying a missile fired from a tank is identical to an arrow shot from a bow.”
As Rappoport so deftly points out, to consider plants that have been “edited” through genetic engineering in a laboratory the same as traditional crops is outright wrong. But that’s exactly what’s happening in Washington, D.C., and this new form of genetic engineering has already produced GMO non-browning apples, GMO potatoes, and GMO mushrooms.
Because of Monsanto’s new $125 million deal to produce them, GMO strawberries and GMO wheat could also be next.
In other words, genetically engineered food will be everywhere, and it will become so commonplace that labeling may cease being an option altogether.

What a Dystopian Food Future Looks Like
These crops are given patents to distinguish their new “traits” from non-GMO foods, in other words they are proven to have a different composition.
But they are also said to be “substantially equivalent” to regular food.
“Both claims cannot be true. So one is a lie. There are no prizes for guessing which one,” Robinson states.
Rappoport paints a picture of how this Monsanto-approved food scam would look if it were part of a dystopian novel:
“We’re going to take all the food out of your refrigerator, we’re going to fool around with the genes, not really knowing what changes are occurring as we cut and paste, having no idea how this will affect your health, and then we’ll come back and put the gene-edited food in the fridge.
Don’t worry, be happy…”
This could be the future of food if this new GMO experiment is allowed to continue unchecked. With that in mind, we sincerely hope you will march against it with us on May 19.
