Leave it to western medical researchers to come up with something this freakish: they've figure out a way to genetically modify plants to force them to create chemicals that can be used against rabies, AIDS and, eventually, other diseases. If you're steeped in the world of science and western medicine, all that sounds like a great idea. But here's the kicker: nature already grows all the healing phytonutrients a human being needs, without needing to undergo genetic modifications.

Nature already has the answers, folks. The plants, weeds and herbs growing in your region right now are powerful agents of healing. All we need to do is stop suppressing the information about the medicinal properties of these plants and start respecting nature's wisdom rather than exploiting it for profit.

There's also the inherent danger of genetically modifying entire crops and exposing them to the open air. The risk of cross-pollination with other plants leading to out-of-control destruction of native plant species is very real, and yet it remains routinely ignored by those involved with these sorts of projects.

Now, in a larger sense, I'm not opposed to the genetic manipulation of plants or humans by an advanced civilization seeking truth and knowledge, but our current civilization is nowhere near advanced enough to handle genetic modifications to living organisms. We don't have the ethics, the personal responsibility, nor the spiritual foundation that should be a prerequisite for these sort of "playing God" experiments. As a civilization, we are childish, exploitive and egoistic. We have not yet earned the right to mess with nature at this level. And I suspect there will be a tremendous price levied upon us someday for this meddling.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
