Thierry Vrain is a retired biologist and genetic engineer who since his retirement has focused on raising public consciousness of the link between genetically modified organisms (GMO) – especially Roundup herbicide whose active ingredient is glyphosate – and dramatic increases in negative health events since GMOs became approved for cultivation in 1996.
GMOs were specifically engineered to become sprayed with Roundup herbicide, essentially to allow farmers to deal with weeds in a much less labor intensive manner. Once genes become discovered through trial and error, which when combined with organic genes of corn, soy, etc. resist applications of Roundup and – unlike all plants which die after being sprayed with the herbicide – can then be cultivated, the technologically created new form of plant becomes patented. The creation is “Roundup ready”.
GMOs represent nearly all corn, soy, sugar beets, canola and other crops/foods grown on agricultural land in America. Because they are “Roundup ready”, farmers can spray their…
