Claire Robinson, co-author of the new report with genetic engineers Dr Michael Antoniou and Dr John Fagan, said: "At just 11 pages plus references, '10 reasons' is designed for people who may not have the time to read 'GMO Myths and Truths', which extends to 330 pages. '10 reasons' is ideal for giving to friends, family, politicians, and journalists, when a longer document is not appropriate.
" '10 reasons' explains that GM crops do not increase yield potential or reduce pesticide use. Nor can they help us meet the challenges of climate change any better than existing non-GM crops, or deliver more nutritious foods. GM crops have been shown to have toxic effects on laboratory and farm animals.
"There is only one way in which GM crops outperform non-GM crops: they are easier to patent in a way that guarantees ownership not only of that GM plant variety but also all plants bred from it. This process enables consolidated ownership of the seed and food market by a few large companies on a scale that has never happened before.
"That is a recipe for loss of food sovereignty and security. It is the opposite to feeding the world – the line we are constantly fed to justify the introduction of GM crops."
“10 reasons” is based on the extensive evidence collected in "GMO Myths and Truths". THE TIME FOR GMO TRUTHS IS NOW.

s that the exposed rats developed cancer at a rate of 2-3 times more often than control animals.
Female rats were especially hit with breast tumors. Male rats were mostly affected in the liver and kidneys. The GMOs also caused rats to develop cancers much earlier in life.

st like it did 20 years ago. But something profoundly different has happened without our knowledge or consent. And according to leading doctors, what we don’t know is already hurting us big time.
What are GMOs? -- GMO stands for "Genetically Modified Organism". Sometimes the initials "GM" are used, which stands for "Genetically Modified". Genetic engineering is very different from normal breeding because it involves taking genes from a completely different species and inserting them into the DNA of another species of plant or even of an animal.
For the first time in history, bacteria, plants and animals can all be mixed up together. For example, right now the DNA of bacteria is put into food plants.
The two primary reasons why plants are genetically engineered are to allow them to:
Drink poison, or
The poison drinkers are inserted with genes from bacteria that allow them to survive otherwise deadly doses of herbicides. The main poison is GMOs is glyphosate, the poison that is in Roundup. Biotech companies sell the seed and herbicide as a package deal, and farmers can then use hundreds of millions of pounds more herbicide than would normally be possible without the plants dying.
The poison producers are called Bt crops. Inserted genes from the a bacteria produce a pesticide (poison) in every cell of the plant. What kills insects, kills us. This is a pesticide which is INSIDE the plant. You cannot wash it off!
More than 70% of the foods on supermarket shelves contain GM foods. Get a magnifying glass and read the list of ingredients. Unless the following words are organic, do not eat it.
Canola (Rapeseed. This is toxic and should not be eaten in any case)
Cotton seed (This is toxic and should not be eaten in any case)
Sugar (beet sugar is GMO. Cane sugar so far is okay)
Zucchini & crook neck squash
Other countries have or import GMO rice and potato.
But it gets worse. Since we now have genetically modified alfalfa, and alfalfa, corn and soy are fed to animals, unless it's organic, you must not eat:
Farm-raised fish or seafood
Glyphosate has even been found in the bodies of dairy cows in Denmark, because Europe imports GMO feed! So you know it has to be in the milk.
This is why we no longer eat out anywhere. Since no restaurant uses organic, GMO-free food, or gives you a full list of ingredients, you are bound to be eating poison in virtually every restaurant, fastfood joint and school canteen.
Organic food is meant to be free of GMOs. But we are starting to find out that even this is not a guarantee. It’s way too easy to sneak in. There have been so far at least two instances discovered where GMOs were found in so-called ‘organic’ food. In each case, this discovery was not made by organizations that should protect you, like the FDA. They were made by independent bodies. Baby food is one. Which is really scary. The only food a baby should have is breastmilk and, when ready for solids, homemade baby food (cook it, strain it, freeze in icecube trays) and reverse osmosis water.
Kashi ‘organic’ cereal is another. The Cornucopia Institute found that Kashi has high levels of GMOs in its ‘organic’ cereal. You may be less surprised at this once you realize that Kashi is not owned by nature-lovers, but by Kellogg’s.
