The late Ronnie Cummins, previously the Worldwide Director of the Natural Customers Affiliation, mentioned earlier than his passing:
Over the previous 30 years OCA and our allies the world over have fought laborious in opposition to gene-spliced GMO meals and crops and the poisonous pesticides and chemical compounds that all the time accompany them, exposing their risks, limiting their market share, and in some nations bringing about obligatory bans (Mexico) and/or labeling and safety-testing. (USA and Europe)
The highly effective Lab Meat and Lab Dairy foyer, funded by Invoice Gates and a rising variety of Silicon Valley tycoons, pay lip service to lowering the CO2, methane, and nitrous oxide emissions from manufacturing unit farms, and rhetorically decry animal cruelty, however their highest precedence appears to be undermining and destroying natural and regenerative farmers, particularly these training holistic grazing and pasturing, these elevating animals with out glyphosate, neonics, GMO grains, or different chemical-intensive inputs. Gates and the Nice Resetters appear hell bent on establishing a brand new, unregulated monopoly of lab engineered (and naturally patented) Frankenfoods. Tellingly sufficient the Massive Meat giants (JBS, Cargill, Tyson, et al) and the Dairy Giants (Unilever and Nestle) are all now investing in faux meat and dairy as properly, hedging their bets and diversifying their greed.
There’s a rising physique of proof that these twenty first Century Frankenfoods are neither protected nor nutritious. SynBio Frankenfoods are neither sustainable nor-plant primarily based, nor by any stretch of the creativeness equitable for household farmers, ranchers, and indigenous/conventional communities. SynBio meals aren’t correctly safety-tested nor labeled. Certainly upon nearer examination, wanting on the official danger disclosures that publicly-traded SynBio producers corresponding to Ginko Bioworks are required to offer to buyers, this new technology of GE meals pose a probably catastrophic menace to our well being, surroundings, and the livelihoods of the world’s three billion small farmers, ranchers, indigenous herders, and rural villagers.
Though there was a small however lengthy standing resistance to Artificial Biology, spearheaded by public curiosity non-governmental organizations (NGOs) corresponding to ETC Group, Buddies of the Earth, and the Worldwide Middle for Know-how Evaluation, which we’ve got supported previously, OCA believes the time is ripe to construct up a brand new, vastly expanded U.S. and world marketing campaign of farmers and customers to cease the Frankenfoods 2.0 faux meat, faux dairy onslaught.
