Default Dr. Mercola Interviews Dr. Huber about GMO

Long and very interesting interview! If it's too long for you and you just want the jest of the conversation, just watch 2 minutes of it starting at the 8 minute mark of pt2 .

Watch the videos in full Tony. It's tough when the industry controls everything including how it's regulated.

I did watch it in full

It is important to recognize that there is little data published in refereed journals to support these claims. Data that are available have been taken greatly out of context to support the accusations.

That's because the little peer reviewed data available is brought to you from the companies making the products. It's ridiculous.

Well no way I am smart enough know who is right. Here is how I feel about it.

Recently appointed South Dakota Secretary of Agriculture Walt Bones took no side on the issue.

"We don't have the 'science' to refute or support Dr. Huber's claims at this time,"

Unfortunately, GMO can refer to several different procedures of genetically modifying organisms. Take the ballot initiative in California for example. Given the language in the initiative, several common varieties of seedless citrus, thornless berries, hybrid pears, etc. that we have been eating for 50 years or more would be classified as GMO.

Mitchel, I saw reports about Dr. Huber re-cycled around again a couple of weeks ago. I've read on blogs that he's had 300 peer-reviewed articles but have never read what those articles are about. His career was quite different from what he's make a name for now.

Monsanto does not regulate what gets researched or reported. They have not bought out every university and scientist in the country. Reuters reported some of the claims by Dr. Huber about a year ago but also printed why Monsanto said those were baseless claims. People want to believe Monsanto is "evil" so they only look for the information that supports their belief instead of looking for facts. The stuff Huber claims would be making news in the major outlets if it was credible. Bad news attracts viewers and the media would have a great time with it.

No, no conflict of interest or power to make things happen in Washington. That's just crazy talk!

From 8-11
'Michael Taylor was just appointed senior advisor to the commissioner of the FDA. This is the same man that was in charge of FDA policy when GMO's were allowed into the US food supply without undergoing a single test to determine their safety. He "had been Monsanto's attorney before becoming policy chief at the FDA [and then] he became Monsanto's Vice President and chief lobbyist. This month [he] became the senior advisor to the commissioner of the FDA. He is now America's food safety czar.

I never said Monsanto doesn't have influence in government. That does nothing to stop media from reporting credible reports about problems with food safety. For instance, there is a report out now in the AP about resistance to Monsanto's Bt corn. That is a legitimate concern that is well documented by various scientists, including at a university. There is no evidence that Monsanto has tried to shut them up.
