It may sound bizarre to those who are not familiar with the ongoing genetic manipulation of the planet by large biotech corporations, but the creation of human-animal hybrid chimeras has prompted a group of leading British researchers to call for a set of new rules that prevent scientists from developing “monsters” as the report states. As researchers around the world continue to push boundaries regardless of environmental or ethical consequence, genetic experiments are becoming increasingly more outlandish. Chinese scientists have already admittedly inserted human stem cells into goat fetuses, and U.S. researchers have studied the idea of creating a mouse with human brain cells.
The Destruction of Nature’s Precious Genetic Coding
Scientists have borrowed genes from a jellyfish to make other organisms glow, and have even implanted spider genes in goats as a means of creating super-strength silk. Scientists even took it a step further by creating genetically modified salmon that they intended to release into the wild before Congress blocked the FDA from approving the move over concerns of health endangerment. The list doesn’t end there. Genetically modified potatoes are among the latest food abominations created by biotech corporations such as Monsanto. These potatoes, once planted in farms worldwide, can easily spread to nearby crops and taint the very genetic integrity of the plant.
Tainting the Food Supply
Billions are spent each year to genetically modify the food supply, tainting it with genetically modified frankenfood. Genetically modifying foods requires one to tamper with the very genetic coding of the crop and/or seed.
The process entails the transfer of genes from one organism to another, such as taking particular genes from a pig and transferring them to a tomato. Not only does this defile nature, but it leads to a host of health problems.
Due to the complexity of a living organism’s genetic structure, it is impossible to track the long-term results of consuming genetically modified food. Introducing new genes into even the most simple bacterium may cause an array of issues, highlighting the complexity of even the simplest organisms. Introducing new genes to highly complex organisms such as animals or crops is even riskier.
When introducing the gene to its new host, it is essentially impossible to predict the reaction. The genetic intelligence of the host could be disrupted with the introduction of the new gene, creating an adverse reaction. There is truly no way of knowing the long-term effect genetically modified food, as there are too many variables. There is simply no room for science when Monsanto is involved.
