If a GMO will prevent us from making a really stupid decision (going back to Nuclear Power) I am all for it. EM pollution is still not on most people's radar...but I take the matter seriously. The invisible nearly undetectable pollution of our electromagnetic environment is increasing exponentially.
And before I believe any claims about Evil Monsanto and their NWO agenda I'd like to see some citations, links, corroborating evidence. There is no black and white to the issue. All corporations do good things and bad things for the human population. It's a matter of weighing the good against the bad and deciding if they can continue their course of action.
There were one or two studies that monitored the effects of cell phone radiation on bee colononies--hardly in a scientific method that allowed for logical conclusions to be made about "normal" RF levels and their effect (they strapped high-powered RF antennas TO a colony and generated RF frequencies in the cell-phone range for long periods of time).
Are there effects of RF radiation on bees (and other biological systems)? Perhaps. Is that what is causing their decline? We don't know (I say no, but that's my opinion). What the studies don't address, however, is the wide-spread decline in bee populations all over the world, specifically in areas that don't have cell phone towers for hundreds (if not thousands) of miles, with negligible ambient RF radiation levels.
I am not in a position to conclude that all of our RF radiation is NOT having a negative effect on biological systems. But there are much more obvious and logical reasons for why certain biological systems are displaying changes in populations and behaviors--the most obvious is change in the solar cycle, for example, with the whole idea of the butterfly effect.
I'm also NOT saying that "gmo's" are to blame--we don't know that either. But there is far more damning evidence for them. Did you hear about the study that was done where rats were fed monsanto genetically-modified soy with their regular food? In the third generation of offspring (of non-inbred offspring), the rats had hair-growing pustules inside of their mouths, had numerous neurological disorders, and were practically sterile (as if they could breed properly with their neurological disorders). It was the most ordinary amount of GMO food too--not like they were fed 100% GMO products either. And the control group was normal. This was repeated many times, and after reading the study, I don't think it had bias. That's far more terrifying and convincing to me than the one or two studies involving RF radiation effects on bee colonies.
Then again, if eating GMO foods causes sterility then perhaps we should welcome it with open arms.
