Surprise: Mainstream Media (FOX News) Admits GMOs Are a ‘Real Safety Issue’

The following may just be one of the most hard-hitting GMO (danger) reports ever aired by the mainstream media. Who would have ever thought Fox news would admit the dangers of GMOs? After all, the mainstream media (MSM) have all but done a complete shut-out concerning activist concerns and anti-GMO marches that have happened around the globe. It looks like the evidence was piling up to be far too incontrovertible, though, as Carol Alt (a super model who has been on over 700 magazine covers) and Max Goldberg of LivingWell.com discussed the many studies that articulate the dangers of GMO crops.

If you are going to deliver bad news, it may as well come from a pretty face, right? At least Alt has a history for standing up for true alternative health methods, including raw milk, and the lessening of vaccine use.

Goldberg admits there are no long-term studies on human beings, but that lab tests involving animals are showing atrocious liver damage, kidney problems, and after just three generations of being fed a GMO diet, hamsters are basically sterile. The hosts of the show point out that the main problem is that GMOs are not labeled, but that is just the tip of the iceberg. Even if labeling were to occur, it doesn’t change the fact that GMOs are spreading uncontrollably around the world, contaminating non-GM crops and wild plants.

And those in power are pushing GMOs hard – making it difficult to fight back. Bill Gates, for example, proudly supports GMOs and has even purchased half a million shares of Monsanto stock back in 2010, so his connection with GMO development is undeniable.

This is a small caveat that the MSM offers the public, a tiny admission of the larger problem with GMOs overall when there should be a sounding of alarms to a much larger degree as an admonition of the genetically modified world. And it goes beyond food. Paper and lumber companies already have plans to liter the forests with GMO trees, another sign big business is more concerned with their wallets than the health of the planet and its people.

After Monsanto, and multiple large corporations spent millions to defeat a GMO labeling bill in Washington just weeks ago, perhaps they are finally getting the hint that GMO activists aren’t going to back down. If Fox News is delivering this message, it might be a sign that the GMO Goliath is stumbling on his shoe laces, and will finally be taken down.

“No long-term studies have ever been done on humans, but when you look at the studies that have been done on animals, it’s pretty appalling,” Goldberg said. “You’re talking about liver damage and kidney damage and when they fed it to hamsters, the third generation of hamsters weren’t able to produce babies, so there’s real safety issues.”

“The real big issue in our country Carol, is that genetically modified food’s are not labeled, so people do not know that they are eating genetically modified foods. Over 60 countries around the world require GMOs to be labeled but the US does not,” Goldberg added. “And why is that? According to the Food & Water Watch, the Ag-Bio tech industry, which owns all these GMOs, has spent $572 million on campaign contributions and lobbying to make sure that they don’t get labeled.”

    It would help if the author had started her article by informing the reader what GMO stands for

  • jmk

    This is like a pandemic on our planet. In a very short period of time – EVERYTHING will be genetically modified. You can’t stop cross pollination from occurring. So labeling isn’t as important as completely BANNING any further use of these GMO crops! When other countries begin/continue to ban importation of our GMO crops, maybe something will change. Money talks! Oh, wait….the government will bail out the farmers by buying their un-saleable crops & feeding them to us and the livestock we eat!

    • Allison Wanamaker

      Yes, you can stop cross pollination from occurring, but involves building greenhouses to keep bees out and hand pollinating everything with a brush.

    I have apparently been eating foods with GMO ingredients for many years. What will be the first sign that this has affected me negatively in any way? Please tell me! Just don’t say “do some research” or “educate yourself”.

        Thanks Guavass. I’m 61 and no symptoms so far. Even if I do get them, how will I know that they were caused by GMO’s?

        • Allison Wanamaker

          You won’t. WHat you will notice is that your once healthy family tree suddenly has a lot of sick children and grandchildren.

      Are any of you getting Münchausen syndrome or Münchausen syndrome by proxy, or even Morgellons from eating GMO foods?

    • Gloria

      Eliot, research and educating ourselves is exactly how many of us found out about gmo’s because we were having some sort of symptoms. I will tell you that I believe heartburn is a big symptom. Millions of people are on GERD meds. Not me, at 3 months off gmo food, I went off meds, rarely have heartburn. Use your dollar to buy non gmo food and help put Monsanto and the other chemical companies out of business. It’s called the “tipping point.” Go to the website for the Institute for Responsible Technology. Everything you need to know is there. Find a Trader Joe’s near where you live. If its hours away, do like I do, go every few weeks and buy enough to get through. Whole milk, cheese, butter and even eggs can be frozen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUtnas5ScSE

    When did Fox News become Main Stream Media??

  • Amber @ Mamas Blissful Bites

    Great interview. Had to share with my blog fans. Thank you!

  • Sunshine

    Thank you to those responsible for getting this information out into the mainstream. Education is So Very Important!
    This is NEWS!

  • Anthony

    Norwegians??? Try Monsanto, Rothschild, and Gates have a deep freeze vault, one of a few. I’d be impressed except they fall way short of telling the truth, then again they’d actually be reporting the news.

    • Elaine C Drahushuk

      Thanks for saying that! There are something like 1,200 to 1,400 of these ‘seed banks’ worldwide, not just in Norway! How anyone could think there is only one of these in the entire world, only adds to the sensationalism of this story – which in this instance is ok with me, because it gets the word out about GMOs.

        Reports say GMOs did not exist over 30 years ago .. And since then much of Earth’s herbal healing aids have been destroyed by GMO changing of it’s molecules … even the soil have been striped of it’s nutrients by the planting of GMO seeds … GMOs are changed from the very molecular structure meaning they are changed from the very ‘light fiber signature’ of the Earth … making GMOs a natural enemy of all that the GOD of creation laid as the foundation of our existence … you got to ask WHY! GMOs are allowed and being pushed so hard and funded so elaborately to remain the unnatural and dangerous food source for humanity …. well I consider whoever the father and supporters of GMOs are the enemy of humanity … an enemy with one purpose in mind … to aid in a plan to genocide the various nations of people GOD intended to thrive in this world … I often say … if this wasn’t the end of days having the hope of deliverance at the hand of GOD … it would be the end of days with no hope, at the hand of man …

      i have a vault of my own. I have 10 varieties of corn kernels stored. My father brought them with him from Mexico back in 1943

    Not to mention that Monsanto sits in OUR government’s seats in Washington, D.C.

  • Abe

    Carol! I love you!!
    People need to see the research that Dr. N. Swanson and I’ve done!! I’m the one that dug up the statistics!
    I’m not a Dr., just a carpenter, and an ex marine! If you still have any active brain cells left, it would be worth looking through this info below! Lots of people are using this data we’ve collected. Dr. Seralini, Dr. Carmen, Dr. Huber, Dr. Mercola……… and other GMO activists!!

    Added to what the video has said .. much of Mother Earth’s natural healing aids have been destroyed by GMO changing of it’s molecules … even the soil have been striped of it’s nutrients by the planting of GMO seeds … GMOs are changed from the very molecular structure meaning they are changed from the very ‘light fiber signature’ of the Mother Earth … making GMOs a natural enemy of all that the GOD of creation laid as the foundation of our existence … the video present the question as to WHY! GMOs are allowed and being pushed so hard and funded so elaborately to remain the unnatural and dangerous food source for humanity …. they say GMOs did not exist over 30 years ago .. well I consider whoever the father and supporters of GMOs are the enemy of humanity … an enemy with one purpose in mind … to aid in a plan to genocide the various nations of people GOD intended to thrive in this world … I often say … if this wasn’t the end of days having the hope of deliverance at the hand of GOD … it would be the end of days with no hope, at the hand of man …

      Your silly superstitious screed undermines the science based effort to label and control and restrict and ultimately BAN glyphosate and Round-Up ready crops that are poisoning the earth and leading to epidemic scale increases in diseases like autism and obesity and white nose bat fungus and honey bee and Monarch butterfly extinction and on and on.

    While the Lame Stream Media is hushed about GMOs, good for Carol Alt and Fox.

    However, on another Fox show-The Five, one guy (who usually is pretty intelligent IMHO) said the typical line about “don’t you want to feed starving children and save their eyesight?” thing so hopefully,Carol will straighten them out!
