For years we’ve discussed the numerous dangers of Monsanto’s genetically modified seeds — from unstoppable genetic contamination to the newly-admitted link between the company’s top selling herbicide and cancer. All in all, the list goes on and on. But GMOs aside, what may be an even greater threat to not only our individual futures, but the future of humanity itself, is what I call the ‘Fukushima nightmare.’
The difference comes down to the invisible threat that Fukushima exhibits verses the much more tangible attack presented by GMOs.
As Monsanto’s GMOs continue to be pushed deeper and deeper into the highly-monopolized food supply, we are faced with one of the greatest threats to our agricultural integrity that we have ever seen. It’s something that we can witness progressing, and we can even read the labels on our foods to ensure that we are eating GMO-free and organic (as much as possible). And perhaps more importantly, the public now recognizes Monsanto’s numerous agricultural crimes and has banded together.
From March Against Monsanto to the explosion of countless other activist groups, never before have more individuals come together in defense of the food supply. And it’s thanks to this activity that we’re seeing things like Vermont passing its mandatory GMO labeling law.
But with Fukushima’s invisible radioactive threat, the issue simply isn’t ‘sexy.’ The public does not have time to do research on the way in which cesium-based radioactive waste can affect our health, or dig deeply into the many ways that it has already infiltrated the borders of the United States. Reports have already came in confirming the presence of Fukushima radiation along the west coast of the United States.
How deep is the damage really going?
