Beware: Genetically modified omega 3 oils to appear in foods

30 October 2009 1,910 views No Comment

Monsanto, the company which spent an astounding eight million dollars last year on lobbying, is planning to flood the food market with poor quality omega 3 oils from its genetically modified (GM) soy beans.

Monsanto, which is trying to control the world’s farming market and infect nature with its genetically modified seeds, plans to sell its omega 3 frankenfood to processed food companies. The food companies will then claim that their frozen dinners and microwave meals are healthy because they contain omega 3 oils.

Yet you can bet your bottom dollar that the packaging on these TV dinners won’t reveal that the omega 3 oils are from GM soy. If you’ve missed the headlines, you can learn why GM-food has a suspicious history  and why these food ingredients are considered unhealthy. 

More astoundingly, is the timing of this press release from Monsanto. Just last week, a poorly designed study doubting the benefits of omega 3 oils from fish somehow passed the peer review process and was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. What’s the connection? 

One of the authors involved in that study denouncing the effectiveness of omega 3 oils from fish was Dr. William Harris, who is a scientific advisor for Monsanto. So here we have someone who is represented as a scientist, and is an advisor for a:

GM-food producing company (Monsanto);
GlaxoSmithKline (pharmaceutical company);
The processed food company Unilever who sells GM food;
his own business which analyzes the quality of omega 3 oils. 

This information comes from the rear page of the study released last week which you’ll see on the above graphic and is damning evidence of a conflict of interest in terms of violating scientific impartiality. It is also a clear instance of how science, medical journals, pharmaceutical companies and the food companies are working together, and not for the good of humanity – but for profit because GM-soy is very cheap.

If Monsanto can buy enough studies and lobbyists to create (unfounded) doubt on the effectiveness for fish oils, they can create a market for their GM franken oils from soy and make a huge profit.
