(NaturalNews) In response to mounting public backlash from the older generation, the biotechnology industry has launched a new propaganda campaign aimed at convincing children that genetically-modified (GM) crops are not only safe, but also an improvement over natural agriculture. Monsanto, Dow, Bayer, and five other major biotechnology companies and associations have collectively released the Biotechnology Basics Activity Book, a colorful guide designed to reeducate children into the false dogma of biotechnology.

The 16-page guide -- which includes word scrambles, fill-in-the-blank puzzles, and matching games -- contains an introductory paragraph that claims biotechnology boosts crop yields, improves environmental conditions, and leads to more nutritious food. Throughout the book, children are told that biotechnology is changing the world for the better, which is a complete contradiction to all available independent science. And yet this guide is reportedly slated for inclusion in some school curriculums.

"This is an activity book for young people like you about biotechnology -- a really neat topic," says the first page of the book. "Why is it such a neat topic? Because biotechnology is helping to improve the health of the Earth and the people who call it home."

The guide was produced by a group known as the Council for Biotechnology Information (CBI), a pro-GMO coalition of the world's largest biotechnology companies and organizations. CBI routinely ignores independent science that shows GMOs and their growing chemicals to be dangerous, and continues to purvey the lie that GMO technologies are not only safe, but that they are superior to conventional and organic growing methods.

Independent science has proven GMOs are a human, environmental health hazard

GM crop systems are inherently unsustainable in every way, as they require massive amounts of chemical inputs in order to grow. They have also been shown in numerous scientific studies to cause organ damage, digestive disorders, autoimmune diseases, reproductive problems, and various other conditions.

Monsanto's Roundup herbicide, the active ingredient of which is the weedkiller glyphosate, was recently exposed as a destroyer of testosterone and male fertility (http://www.naturalnews.com/035135_Roundup_herbicide_testosterone.html). Not only is Roundup responsible for spurring the massive "superweed" epidemic that now plagues millions of acres of American cropland, but the chemical concoction was also recently shown to trigger dozens of plant diseases (http://www.naturalnews.com/031138_Monsanto_Roundup.html).

Even when diluted by 99.8 percent, the Roundup formula is still toxic to human DNA, having been shown in a recent Archives of Toxicology study to have definitive cytotoxic and DNA-damaging properties (http://www.naturalnews.com/035050_Roundup_Monsanto_DNA.html). Environmentally, Roundup is highly persistent, and has been found in air, rainwater, and rivers all across the U.S., and particularly in the "bread belt" of the Midwest (http://www.naturalnews.com/033699_Roundup_pollution.html).

As far as GMOs themselves, there have been countless studies and reviews that have revealed serious problems with the way they are digested. A 2004 study published in Nature Biotechnology found that the genetic code of GM soy can actually alter the genetic code of gut microbiota when consumed, which can cause long-term digestive problems (http://www.naturalnews.com/028635_GMOs_bacteria.html).

None of these facts are published in the Biotechnology Basics Activity Book, of course, which makes quite the opposite claims without even a shred of proof to back them. But since young children are the book's target audience, the biotechnology liars behind its publishing apparently hope that colorful pictures and fun word games will be enough to sway the opinion of the next generation.
