Former Gov’t Scientist: GMOs A Silent Killer

gmo crops former government scientistFor much of two decades, soil biologist and molecular biologist Thierry Vrain worked for the Canadian government and defended genetically modified (GMO) crops to the public, telling them they were safe to plant and eat. Then he left his position, began having second thoughts — and changed his mind.

A former scientist with Canada’s version of the USDA (Agriculture Canada), Vrain is now one of the leading experts opposing genetically modified foods, and he’s this week’s guest on Off The Grid Radio.

GMOs, Vrain says, are silently making Americans and Canadians sick – all with the governments’ naïve support.


Vrain also explains:

–  Why the science truly is against GMO crops.

–  What he sees as the future of the GMO debate.

–  What led him to change his mind on GMOs.

Now retired, Vrain is free to speak his mind about the science of GMOs. If you care about the food you and your children eat, don’t miss this week’s episode.

  1. i have used herbicides all my life. i am a 60 year old farmer. i am not sick. i farm 1200 acres. if i had to farm without herbicides, i could only farm 200 acres and would use twice as much fuel per acre. it seems to me that this canadian just does not like the big company (monsanto). they somehow pissed him off!

    • much ado about nothing

      Gary: The article is about the bad effects of GMO ‘s not about herbicides…

      GMO- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetically_modified_organism
      Herbicides – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herbicide

    • Gary….Just like smoking you may escape or not the ravages of cancer. Everyone now accepts that smoking causes cancer and heart disease unless you are living in some kind of time warp. Hundreds of studies indicate many serious illnesses associated with pesticides including round-up. It is unfortunate that many people will suffer before the same realization will occur here. I have a hard time understanding how you would use twice as much fuel. How do you come up with this? I hear these kinds of things but they are regularly based on those who support this industry that care nothing for anyone else. A lot of people are pissed off at Monsanto. What to guess why? They have a lousy history associated with repeated lies proven in court.

    • GARY. THERE IS A COUPLE OF THINGS THAT YOU MUST UNDERSTAND ABOUT GMO HERBICIDES AND PESTICIDES. ONE QUESTION FIRST; WOULD YOU DRINK A FULL GLASS OF THAT CHEMICAL YOU ARE SPRAYING ON YOUR CROPS? I GUESS THAT THE ANSWER WOULD BE A BIG “NO” RIGHT? PLANTS WILL ABSORB THESE CHEMICALS THRU THE ROOTS AND THE CHEMICALS WILL END UP IN THE FRUITS. BY INGESTING THESE FRUITS, YOU MIGHT NOT DEVELOP ANY SIDE EFFECTS BUT THE CHEMICAL STRUCTURE OF THESE PESTICIDES OR HERBICIDES WILL BE STORED IN YOUR GENETIC CODE OR DNA. THIS WILL EVENTUALLY BE PASTED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION PRODUCING IN SOME CASES DEFORMITIES OR EVEN RETARDATION IN CHILDREN (OR IN THIS CASE YOUR DESCENDANTS). IF THIS DOESN’T BRING ANY CONCERN TO YOU OR YOUR FAMILY, JUST IGNORE WHAT I HAVE EXPLAINED AND CONTINUE SPRAYING MORE CHEMICALS ON YOUR CROPS (DOUBLE DOSE FOR THE ONES THAT YOU USE AT HOME FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY). BUT TRY TO CONSIDER THOSE THAT DO NOT WANT THESE CHEMICALS. BY THE WAY MANY FARMERS THAT PREFER TO PUT CHEMICALS IN THEIR CROPS FOR MORE PRODUCTION (OR MORE MONEY GAIN) DO IT AT THE EXPENSE OF OTHER HUMAN LIVES. WHEN MANY PEOPLE GET SICK AND DIE FROM THESE CHEMICALS IN THE FUTURE, WHO WILL YOU SELL YOUR CROPS TO?

      • NOW A WORD TO OFF THE GRID NEWS: THIS RETIRED EX-GMO SCIENTIST IS EXACTLY THE SAME TYPE OF SCIENTIST THAT HITLER HAD. AFTER THEY WERE PART OF A SYSTEM THAT PROMOTED HUMAN GENOCIDE FOR MANY YEARS, NOW THEY WANT TO LAY BACK WITH A NICE PENSION AND EXCUSE THEMSELVES FOR ALL THE WRONG THEY DID AND WE THE PEOPLE ARE SUPPOSE TO SUPPORT THESE GUYS. THE UNITED STATES PERMITTED NUTZI SCIENTISTS INSIDE U.S. TERRITORIES UNDER A PROGRAM CALLED OPERATION “PAPERCLIP” (GOOGLE IT PEOPLE)! THE U.S. GOVT. WANTED THE SCIENTISTS DISCOVERIES AND PROMISED THEM NEW IDENTITIES AND NEW LIVES IN EXCHANGE. THESE SCIENTISTS SHOULD HAVE BEEN HANGED. I FIND IT VERY OFFENSIVE TO EVEN KNOW THAT YOU GUYS WILL EVEN INTERVIEW SUCH A SCUM OF THE EARTH LIKE THIS SCIENTIST. IT IS LIKE INTERVIEWING HITLER HIMSELF. WHY HE COULDN’T HAVE BEEN A WHISTLE BLOWER YEARS BACK AT THE BEGINNING BUT PREFER TO WAIT RETIREMENT?

        • Giovanni, Nazis run aMErica today including your govt. i bet you think 911 was real too. school did not print what happened during WW2 and the bush family and friends. They profit off people in every way make you sick with fake food then poison you in the hosp. Im going off grid asap free and away from idiot aMErica. all about me not we and we wonder why we are going third world status. 6th in wealth, 25th in education and 15th in standard of living in 20 years and exactly to plan. fake freedom, fake patriotism, fake country from what it once was. keep supporting chinas military then say out of the other side of your mouth you support the troops !! where do you think the weapons our troops are being killed with today came from, Us given to bin laden ! Off the grid is a freedom we dont have everywhere in this country. just keep you blinders on …

  2. I guess Gary thinks obamacare is the best thing since sliced bread.

  3. Well, I guess you have been lucky to have not gotten sick using chemicals for 6o years. One of the few lucky farmers out there with good genetics. Count your blessings because I know thousands who are not so lucky. You ought to look at Dr Stehanie Seneff’s research on the health affects of glyphosate.http://vimeo.com/65914121 Also many farmers are not happy about being lied to about how GMOs were touted as the best thing since sliced bread. Listen to this interview entitled ” Farmer to Farmer.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jEX654gN3c4 What do you think all these chemicals are doing to our environment and bees? Wake up and smell the coffee before it is too late!

  4. Arguing with a man like Gary is like the best chess player in the world play against a pigeon(Gary). The pigeon just kicks the pieces around, shit all over the board, and struts around like it one. So it is impossible to win. Lol

  5. Gary,

    I’d like to know if you actually eat what you grow. Also, do you use hazmat gear when you use those herbicides and pesticides? You should look around – away from Monsanto, government sources (those are now controlled by industry) – and find out just how much damage BOTH your chemical poisons and the poisons you grow have done and are doing! This is not intended as an insult, but you are the rare exception – so far! The damage is also cumulative. If you wish I’ll post a few articles for you to check. There’s just too much evidence that these things are being used to DELIBERATELY poison people and the planet itself – air, food, water, medicine, everything.

    Ian

  6. Funny how people want to save the world but never stop that elbow bending when the fork has food on it.

  7. The biggest problem is Monsato is a huge company and is partnered with many other big companies. They have the money to fight, if they would just use that money and experience to find a safer alternative would be better for others. It is difficult to even find non-engineered seeds to plant in your own garden. Shows what is wrong with the FDA and the Dept of Agriculture. They don’t need to test humans, it is seen in the animals and the epidemic spreading across the human race. Canadian generally has always been more protected of their food than America has. Many foods, ingredients allowed in USA are not allowed in Canada and other countries.
