School curriculum for young students shamelessly promotes GMOs, vaccines
by Jonathan Benson, staff writer
(NaturalNews) The biotechnology agenda has now infiltrated public school curricula for sixth graders, with a captured screenshot of a student's homework essentially answering "yes" to the loaded question, "Are genetically modified foods safe to eat?"
As you'll see in the shocking (below), young students are now being indoctrinated into the religion of GMOs and vaccines with blatant propaganda suggesting that "scientists," rather than nature, are responsible for providing humanity with nutritious foods and medicine in the form of patented, privately owned lifeforms.
"Do you hate going to the doctor for your shots?" asks the assignment. "What if you could eat a banana instead? Through a process called genetic modification, scientists are creating foods that contain human vaccines as well as extra vitamins and minerals."
The worksheet goes on to suggest that GMOs help scientists "increase positive traits and decrease negative ones," again implying that nature got everything wrong and that humans have to step in and fix everything by mixing and matching genes from unrelated species.
This is the type of garbage that today's public school students are now being taught as "facts." It appears as though Monsanto has somehow slithered its slimy tentacles into formative school curricula in order to brainwash the next generation into accepting pirated biology.
GMOs: a toxic legacy of superweeds, cancer, environmental contamination and crop failures As you'll notice in the assignment, there's no mention of how Roundup, the chemical herbicide applied liberally to GM crops like soybeans and corn, is causing an epidemic of pesticide-tolerant "superweeds." There's also no mention of how the World Health Organization (WHO) recently conceded that Roundup is a "probable carcinogen," meaning it causes cancer.
What about the fact that more than 75% of air and rain samples collected across the U.S. are now turning up contaminated with Roundup? Nope, no mention of this either, which is highly alarming, as Roundup exposure, even in small amounts, is linked to causing a host of human health problems.
Rather than provide students with the full story on GMOs, pro-biotech propaganda like the aforementioned worksheet is flagrantly propagating an agenda of lies. And that agenda, which is based on illusion rather than science, is what students are now being tricked into believing is undeniable truth.
Just take a look at the copious science covered in the Earth Open Source GMOs Myths and Truths report and see for yourself how biotechnology is neither safe nor beneficial:
As parents, it is crucial to inform our children about this misinformation assault by multinational corporations with a self-serving agenda. The next generation needs to know that GMOs aren't the solution to the world's hunger and pest problems, and that the monoculture crop methods promoted by biotechnology are damaging rather than beneficial.
GMOs are inherently problematic from both an ecological and a sustainability standpoint. The long-term effects of growing GMOs on both the environment and human health have yet to be studied, though the irreversible damage caused by their use is now beginning to turn up in the form of novel pathogens, pests and weeds that outlive even the strongest chemical interventions.
"When major weed species develop widespread multi-herbicide resistance, farmers will really be in a bind, because there are no new herbicides coming over the horizon to save the day," warns the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS).
"There's a better way. Farmers can control weeds using practices grounded in the science of agroecology, including crop rotation, cover crops, judicious tillage, the use of manure and compost instead of synthetic fertilizers, and taking advantage of the weed-suppressing chemicals that some crops produce."
After discussing the cancer-causing effects of Monsanto's Roundup on his show, Dr. Oz was attacked in a letter by pro-industry propaganda "scientists," including Medicaid fraud artist Dr. Gilbert Ross of the American Council on Science and Health, which you can learn more about here: TruthWiki.org.
