(NaturalNews) Tufts University's Director of the Research and Policy Program at the Global Development and Environment Institute (Timothy Wise) points out[1]:

There is no ... consensus on the safety of GM food. A peer-reviewed study[2] of the research, from peer-reviewed journals, found that about half of the animal-feeding studies conducted in recent years found cause for concern. The other half didn't, and as the researchers noted, "most of these studies have been conducted by biotechnology companies responsible of commercializing these GM plants."(Story republished from WashingtonsBlog.com)

The only consensus that GM food is safe is among industry-funded researchers.

By way of background, genetically engineered foods have been linked to obesity,[3] cancer,[4] liver failure,[5] infertility[6] and all sorts of other diseases (brief, must-watch videos here[7] and here[8]).

And genetically-engineered meat isn't even tested for human safety.[9]

And a leading risk expert says that genetically modified foods could wipe out the global ecosystem.[10]

But government agencies like the FDA go to great lengths to cover up the potential health damage from genetically modified foods,[11] and to keep the consumer in the dark about what they're really eating. (Indeed, the largest German newspaper[12] -- Suddeutsche Zeitung -- alleges that the U.S. government helped Monsanto ATTACK THE COMPUTERS[13] of activists opposed to genetically modified food.)

Indeed -- as Tufts' Timothy Wise notes -- huge sums of money are being poured into shutting down all honest scientific debate about the risks from GMOs:

Biotechnology companies and their powerful advocates, like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, are succeeding in a well-planned campaign to get GM safety declared "settled science."

An indicator was a quiet announcement in the press last summer that the Gates Foundation had awarded a US$5.6 million grant to Cornell University to "depolarize" the debate over GM foods. That's their word. The grant founded a new institute, the Cornell Alliance for Science.

"Our goal is to depolarize the GMO debate and engage with potential partners who may share common values around poverty reduction and sustainable agriculture, but may not be well informed about the potential biotechnology has for solving major agricultural challenges," said project leader Sarah Evanega, senior associate director of International Programs in Cornell's College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS).

Got it? The Gates Foundation is paying biotech scientists and advocates at Cornell to help them convince the ignorant and brainwashed public, who "may not be well informed," that they are ignorant and brainwashed.

"Improving agricultural biotechnology communications is a challenge that must be met if innovations developed in public sector institutions like Cornell are ever to reach farmers in their fields," added Kathryn J. Boor, the Ronald P. Lynch Dean of CALS.

It's kind of like depolarizing an armed conflict by giving one side more weapons.

The War on Independent Media Has Begun

A coordinated censorship attack is being waged against the entire independent media by Google, YouTube and Facebook. After we were banned by Google for nearly a week, now Facebook is deliberately blocking the sharing of our stories to further censor our important reporting for human freedom and medical choice. Soon, the only way we will be able to reach you is via email, and Google is sometimes blocking our email delivery to gmail users.

Enter your email address below to subscribe to our email announcement list (but don't use gmail). Your privacy is protected and you can unsubscribe at any time. If you don't join our email list, you may never see our valuable content again via Facebook, Google or YouTube. CENSORSHIP has now reached EXTREME levels across the 'net. The truth is being suffocated. Subscribe now if you want to escape the delusional bubble of false reality being pushed by Google and Facebook.
