Beef is an essential part of many people’s diets but now, just like the Frankenstein apple cows are being genetically modified.
Historically only the grain or grass cows grazed upon was genetically modified because previous attempts to modify cows had produced side effects genetically.
The cows’ genes are being modified by NRAMP1 which stands for Natural resistance-associated macrophage protein 1 and it is a protein that in humans is encoded by the SLC11A1 gene.
Interestingly enough, the mutations in this gene have been associated with susceptibility to infectious diseases such as tuberculosis and leprosy, and inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn’s disease.
Genetically Modifying Organisms have had drastic effects on our way of life. For many years, scientists and Big Agriculture have modified several crops to resist the effects of Monsanto’s hugely popular herbicide Round Up which have lead to adverse effects and enormous profits for Big Pharma. After many years of use without users consent, it is finally becoming clear just how damaging Round Up actually is.
Recently in California, a court ruled against Monsanto and paved the way for warning labels to be placed on Monsanto’s products.
California can require Monsanto to label its popular weed-killer Roundup as a possible cancer threat despite an insistence from the chemical giant that it poses no risk to people, a judge tentatively ruled Friday.
California would be the first state to order such labeling if it carries out the proposal.
Monsanto had sued the nation’s leading agricultural state, saying California officials illegally based their decision for carrying the warnings on an international health organization based in France.
Monsanto attorney Trenton Norris argued in court Friday that the labels would have immediate financial consequences for the company. He said many consumers would see the labels and stop buying Roundup.
“It will absolutely be used in ways that will harm Monsanto,” he said.
After the hearing, the firm said in a statement that it will challenge the tentative ruling. —Read More
For many years Monsanto has altered our food, our health, and destroyed many lives with glyphosate and GMO’s. But now, after all of this time, since 1996 to be exact, finally the truth is beginning to come out about how Monsanto is effecting our health.
Given that it has taken almost 20 years of proving that Monsanto’s GMOs and Glyphosate are harmful to our health, what will the effects be of altering beef?
CRISPR is set to reshape the world radically; the technology has given scientists the ability to change life itself and remove the Hand of God from creation, which of course will bring about gene mutations, and creatures such as chimeras. Recently, the first human and animal hybrid, Chimera, was created in a lab using the same technology that now is going to alter our beef, but again there is no telling what the consequences will be.
