Are you a lab rat? Yes or no? I don’t mean to offend but the reason I ask is that there are people in lab coats across the planet who are undergoing something of a God complex. More specifically a God complex of experimentation. They no longer see humans as sentient, autonomous, living beings with a will of their own. Instead they see you as a lab rat at best or a fascinating tinker toy machine at worst. These people want to keep you in ignorance about the foods (GMOs) they’ve “engineered” for you to put in your body.
You are being purposely confused by those you trust and rely on
I personally know people who listen to the mainstream media. They believe everything the mainstream media tells them about food. One of the things my acquaintances believe about GMOs (Genetically Modified Foods) are that GMOs are perfectly healthy for you. Because as their logic presumes; the government would have prohibited dangerous experimental foods from being sold at all to the public.
Add to that the mystique that GMOs are basically “super human super foods” because it was engineered in a lab by ” very smart people”. This scenario creates the current climate of GMO worship going on today. But as I will point out later on in this article, governments and corporations have a very murky and disgusting past when it comes to human experimentation and unethical bio-logical/chemical testing.

The government has a history of negligence, conflicts of interest and experimentation on its own people
The Tuskegee Experiments, MK-Ultra, The Plutonium Files and many others. The aforementioned were all government-sanctioned experiments to prod, infect, brainwash and inject deadly biological and chemical agents into unsuspecting victims.
Sure there were lawsuits for many of those incidents but many were also swept under the rug. If you were to go to someone on the street and tell them that 50 years ago people were purposely being infected with the syphilis virus, they’d tell you that you were some crazy “conspiracy theorist”.
And yet the Tuskegee Experiments did happen with plenty of records and eyewitnesses not to mention a class action lawsuit against the U.S. Government. One of the things which always fascinated me about most people is the level of cognitive dissonance they harbour when confronted with this information.
Use your BS meter equally and consistently for big and small matters
One of the things I have noticed is that people will be people smart and savvy at work, at home, and in relationships. But the moment when issues such as GMOs and their health become involved all of a sudden naivety takes root and it’s “I believe whatever the government tell’s me.” Really?
Why is it that companies like Monsanto are fighting tooth and nail to prevent YOU from knowing whether you are eating GMOs or not? Why would they muzzle scientists from speaking out on the dangers of GMO plants and foodstuff?
What you don’t know can kill you or make you terminally ill
Imagine a scenario where a Sales Person goes up to you in a store and says:
“Here eat this, it’s a super-duper cereal made by company X, it has all the vitamins and minerals you’ll ever need!”
You: “Ok awesome! But before I take a bite I just have one question.”
Sales Person: “Sure!”
You: “Why do the ingredients label just say ‘super secret and salt‘? I’d really like to know what I am ingesting.”
Sales Person: “Well Company X has done extensive lab testing and the ingredients have been deemed by our brilliant scientists and the FDA to be perfectly safe.”
You: “Oooook, I’d still like to know what I am about to put in my body though.”
Sales Person: “But, but. . . this product has been approved by the FDA! There is absolutely nothing to worry about! If it was unsafe it would never be approved for public consumption in the first place!“
You: “Look I know what salt is but I sure as hell don’t know what “super secret” is, I think I’ll pass.”
Sales Person: “Wow! You sure are a picky eater.”
The imaginary scenario above is just one way in which companies like Monsanto, DuPont and others are presenting themselves to the public. A healthy society in both mind and body simply would not stand for the apparent cloak and dagger shenanigans these companies are participating in with their consumers health. It is my hope that this article will at least make you aware as to the controversy surrounding GMOs. If not that, at least be consistent in your critical thinking and B.S. meter when a person, entity or company tries to pull the wool over your eyes.
