Revealed: Deadly “Rogue Gene” Discovered in Monsanto’s GMO Crops

dnaBy: Anthony Gucciardi

Yet another disturbing reason has emerged as to why you should be avoiding health-devastating genetically modified organisms, and it may be one of the most concerning yet.

We know that GMO consumption has been linked to a host of serious conditions, but one thing we are not so sure about is the recent discovery of a hidden viral gene deep within genetically modified crops.

For years, GMOs have been consumed knowingly and unknowingly around the globe, with Monsanto and the United States government claiming that the altered franken crops are perfectly safe despite very limited (or virtually none in some cases) initial testing and scientists speaking out against the dangers.

One such danger that has actually not been spoken about has been revealed in a recent report by a safety watchdog group known as the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).

Another Dirty Secret of Monsanto

In the EFSA report, which can be read online, you can find (within the scientific wording) that researchers discovered a previously unknown viral gene that is known as ‘Gene VI’. What’s concerning is that not only is the rogue gene found in the most prominent GMO crops and about 63% of GMO traits approved for use (54 out of 86 to be precise), but it can actually disrupt the very biological functions within living organisms.

Popular GMO crops such as Roundup-Ready soybeans, NK603, and MON810 corn were found to contain the gene that induces physical mutations. NK603 maize, of course, was also recently linked to the development of mass tumors in rats.

According to Independent Science News, Gene VI also inhibits RNA silencing. As you may know, RNA silencing has been pinpointed as vital for the proper functioning of gene expression when it comes to RNA. Perhaps more topically, it is a defense mechanism against viruses in plants and animals alike.

On the contrary, many viruses have developed genes that disable this protective process. Independent Science News reports that the Gene VI is one such gene.

Overall, there is a degree of knowledge on Gene VI. What we do know going by information within the report is that the gene:

  • Helps to assemble virus particles
  • Inhibits the natural defense of the cellular system
  • Produces proteins that are potentially problematic
  • Makes plants susceptible to bacterial pathogens

All of which are very significant effects that should be studied in depth by an independent team of scientists after GMO products are taken off the market pending further research on the entire array of associated diseases. And that does not even include the effects we are unaware of.

This is yet another incident in which Monsanto and other biotech companies are getting away with an offense against the citizens of the world with (most likely) no action taken by the United States government.

What we have seen, however, is nations like Russia, Poland, Hungary, and Peru taking a stand against Monsanto in direct opposition to their disregard for public safety. Russia, in fact, banned Monsanto’s GMO corn variety after it was linked to mass tumors in rats.

As more and more dirty secrets come out from the GMO industry at large, it gives further reason and more support to remove GMOs as a whole from the food supply.

  1. Here here ! We just can’t expect other people to sort things out, we create our reality. En masse, we HAVE the power.

  2. What troubles me the most is how free trade has allowed this “man made produce” cross borders without the citizens of that country knowing really why their produce is cheaper. Shipping & handling should have made it more expensive. They have put other companys and local farmers out of business. Now if the government cuts GMO’s & other poisons out how long will it actually take to reverse the damage that is done, or even if it can. Is there enough organic food to supply the demand or will people have to start to grow there own. And in todays world how do we get the time/area to take care of these gardens or will we have to build greenhouses. (already planning to build my own). How much $$ would it take to get enough farmers back to the old way?? I have gone totally organics and I also stop eating all corn & wheat (organic or not). It’s been almost 3 months, the information & research information that I learned about is totally mind bottling. Why can’t our government be what we voted them to be! We have other countries that actaul hate us now. It’s to a point that we cannot even believe that the voting system is fare, But if they make us all sick then we will all be too weak to make a difference. So skip waiting for the government to make the change and educated yourself to live off the grid, Look for your own resoucres, and most of all stop buying their products!

  3. People need to realize that we live in a PLUTOCRACY now…NOT a Democracy nor a Republic like our forefathers intended. Big Business gets what they want by paying politicians under the table and infiltrate their numbers into the system as legislatures, etc. Our country is going to the dogs and a revolution is in our future. It will be long, bloody, and all because of GREED!!!!

  4. GMO’s can be identified by and easy test…more and more common for DNA verification.
    You eliminate by burning fields, it’s being done in other countries.
    Don’t be surprised if the government and the genetically modifying corporations don’t pay heed to people’s real concerns-this is their recourse.

  5. How are we gonna eliminate GMO’s when everything has already pretty much cross-pollinated??

  6. Lets Face The Facts… Mother Nature Knows Best!
    for what?… money???

  7. Can someone tell me the source? Going to EFSA website and searching for “GMO Monsanto Gene VI” gives a list of publications from 2005 to 2010 but its hard to identify the source of this article by those titles…so can we have the title of the study that was used for this article? Thanks!

  8. Monsanto is just the tip of the iceberg when placed up against what the rest of the corporations and banks are up to. Government is the violent arm of the same global capitalist imperialism. Remember who the government works for and don’t be fooled into thinking they work for you even if they ban Monsanto out of your country. Freedom doesn’t last forever without out resistance keeping the oppressor in check at all times. Without public pressure, unstable governments would otherwise back Monsanto and all the others who violate your freedom, safety and your health. While booting Monsanto out of your country may bring you off to a good start, it won’t rid the world of corporate dominance and its violent arm in every country>the police state and your military. There is just too much work ahead of the world to celebrate now. Never settle. The greatest enemy of freedom will be no one but yourself when you decide to sit back while the rest rise up.

  9. Monsanto. Listen well. When your endd comes, it will be like the Nuremburg Trials. I’m just one person. There are millions like me and we grow in numbers annually . As a result of my comment, i know your next move. One day you’ll learn you are enemies of the human race, and for what? Money? That puts you as an underclass to trailer park trash.
