Complete Strategic Plan for 100% Total Worldwide Ban
of Genetically Engineered Foods, May 13, 1999 Update
(please pass this on everywhere -- every consumer has the right to be
fully aware of this so they will be free to make choices. If you
want the complete report, please send this to five or more people
and then order -- See below. If you disagree with some aspect(s) of this
movement for 100% ban of GE food, then feel free to start your
own action for or against GE food. The basic rule is lead, follow or
get out of the way.)
UPDATED EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: May 13, 1999
1. Foods that we assume to be natural foods and eat every day
have been genetically engineered with the DNA of bacteria,
viruses, animals, and fish. The chemical/genetic engineering
industry has done this secretly over the past three years.
2. Although the chemical/genetic engineering industry claims
to have good motives and good intentions for doing this,
they are essentially experimenting with the human race
on a mass scale.
3. The chemical/genetic engineering industry claims that
genetically engineered food is just a natural extension
of time-tested crossbreeding and hybridization. Actually this
is a new, experimental, very dangerous, AND radical technology.
The process causes unnatural mutation and combination of
DNA of our food in a manner which excludes nature out of
the process. This means we and our children are now eating
lab-created, mutated and experimental "fake" food. They are
experimenting, not only with us and with our children, but with
the entire food chain. The European Commission has been drawing
up a 5-point emergency response designed to cope when
genetically engineered food results in widespread illness or
destruction of wildlife. The USDA, FDA, and EPA in the U.S.
support the multi-national corporations that are responsible
for this genetically engineered food disaster.
4. The chemical/genetic engineering industry claims that
these "scientific advances" will help solve the problem of
world hunger. Their actual main motive is to create profit
windfalls by increasing sales of their pesticides and dominating
the entire food supply. For example, the patent on Monsanto's
pesticide/herbicide known as "Roundup" will expire soon.
Monsanto has enticed farmers with their experimental crops that
are genetically engineered to absorb and tolerate their
chemical pesticides and their other yummy crops which create
their own pesticide internally. Monsanto, DuPont, and Novartis are
also taking direct action to buy out and bring the world's largest
seed companies under their control. Opponents of genetically
engineered foods call them Frankenfoods, or Frankenstein foods.
5. There have already been many serious ill effects from genetically
engineered products. Genetically engineered Tryptophan caused
50 deaths and permanently injured thousands, while the genetically
engineered sweetener Aspartame has caused thousands of documented
disease cases worldwide. Now the chemical companies
have genetically engineered soy, corn, potatoes, tomatoes,
canola, cotton, papaya, radicchio and crook neck squash.
These are now in your supermarket !!
6. To avoid these foods, shop very carefully by eating only certified
organic versions of soy, corn, potatoes, tomatoes, canola,
cotton oil (sometimes in chips/snacks), papaya, radicchio or
crook neck squash. Soy and corn derivitives
are in most processed foods.
7. We can eliminate these Frankenfoods now !! If you want
to eliminate Frankenfoods from this world, please take action.
Here's how: Forward this message to your on-line friends, relatives
and connections. Important: Also feel free to print this complete
message out and give hard copies to your off-line friends, relatives,
and connections. They can then keep it going by making MORE copies
and again giving hard copies to their friends, relatives, and
connections. When making hard copies, please keep the entire
message intact, including the Websites. Those with Internet
connections then have the luxury of being able to visit the Websites.
8. By sending this executive summary to 5 - 25 people on or off-line
or both, you are doing a wonderful good deed. By sending it to
50 to 100 people, you are taking powerful direct action to insure
that genetically engineered Frankenfoods will soon be
eliminated from this world. If you want to participate, then please
send this message to at least 5 and up to 100 people. Then and
only then, please feel free to order the complete report
at the end of this executive summary.

(THIS is the ONLY comprehensive global plan to 100% STOP GE FOOD)
Please first send or print this executive summary to 5 - 100
people via either e-mail or by printing hard copies and handing
them out to friends, family, and connections. Please tell them
that it's regarding bad food, regarding genetically engineered
food that they're probably eating every day. Please invite them
to participate -- then and only then, please send an e-mail to:
