Why chemical GM food is untenable

In chemical farming plants deteriorate because of mono-cultivation and one-sided fertilization.

Then poisons are needed to kill weeds, molds, plant diseases and insect pests. This gives us food that has few nutrients but toxic chemical residues instead. Present form of mass production also wastes too much water, and a huge amount of grain for meat production. It also uses antibiotics and hormones blithely everywhere they can add to the mass growth.'

Groundwater is spoilt, or going to be spoilt, in many countries that cultivate conventionally and use fertilizers and herbicides. E.g. in Denmark all ground waters are spoilt.

Well-produced organic food is safe and proven (England, etc.) to include more protective nutrients, and even the ones without taste notice the different aromas of organic fruits and vegetables. Just compare wild berries to the ones grown in the field. The difference is huge in all quality factors.

The giant company Monsanto's gene manipulation - glyphosate combination is completely untenable. GM plants have already damaged the biodiversity permanently. Glyphosate certainly causes cancer and will be banned, because despite enormous lobbying the pile of evidence is growing.

Monsanto, like the pharmaceutical industry, can afford to conduct "investigations" and engage in various shady schemes and corruption in order to prove its own methods safe.

Monsanto just purchased Bayer, so its power as the worldwide king of the plant monopoly will just increase. E.g. in India, the company has pushed millions of farmers into plight, and thousands of them have already been desperate enough to commit suicide.

All the field chemicals used in the 1970s are already banned as too toxic. Several have also come and gone since. Currently the widely used weed killer Atrazine disturbs hormones and will be banned, despite the attempts to conceal scientific evidence.

The solution is the use of non-toxically produced healthy food from deep-rooting trees, algae and nitrogen-binding perennial plants.

The food in the future has respect and dignity, it is not wasted, it is eaten in moderation and produced in a sustainable way.
