(NaturalNews) The director of a government testing agency in Bangladesh that granted approval for genetically modified (GM) Bt eggplant (brinjal), which turned out to be a total failure, exploded recently after being questioned about the safety of the "Frankencrop." Dr. Rafiqul Islam Mondal* from the Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (BARI) angrily told a room full of reporters and farmers that, if they are so concerned about the safety of Bt brinjal, they should conduct their own safety research on the plant.

I'm glad the crop failed! Not for the farmers, of course, but I wish more GMO crops would fail, maybe they'd finally get away from that garbage! I just hate that these big companies and the governments are pushing this stuff, regardless of what the public says it wants. It is so WRONG, argh! It just boggles my mind that they would try it on humans without any proper testing first and then to "explode" and have a hissy fit when they're called on it! Ludicrous!

Now they're moving more and more into countries that have managed to stay pure and free of this taint. They won't be happy until they take over the whole world...of course I think that's their whole aim. :(

look at this part....a subsidiary of monsanto....joy..joy...welcome to the real world umbrella corp.

Research conducted by Monsanto subsidiary showed Bt brinjal destroys immunity and vital organs

Dr. Mondal's fury over being questioned about Bt brinjal is laughably disingenuous. It is only reasonable, after all, that anything proposed to replace one of the nation's most popular food crops be thoroughly tested for human safety first. This is especially true in light of tests conducted by Monsanto subsidiary Mahyco, the producer of Bt brinjal, which found that the crop is deadly to mammals.

As explained by GMWatch, raw data from both 14- and 90-day rat-feeding studies revealed that Bt brinjal damages vital organs. The rats' ovaries ended up developing at half their normal weight, and their spleens became enlarged with white blood cell counts up to 40 percent higher than normal, due to Bt brinjal. The rats' livers were also harmed, as were their immune systems.

Mahyco didn't report any of these important findings to BARI, of course. The Monsanto subsidiary instead shifted the numbers around and made a declaration that Bt brinjal is safe rather than toxic, a common tactic of the GMO death cult when attempting to force its toxic wares on resistant nations. Fortunately, not everyone bought this lie.

"Major health problems among test animals were ignored in these reports," stated Dr. Lou Gallagher, a New Zealand-based epidemiologist and risk assessment expert who analyzed the data compiled by Mahyco and found its report to be false. "Release of Bt brinjal for human consumption cannot be recommended given the current evidence of toxicity to rats in just 90 days and the studies' serious departures from normal scientific standards."

Even so, Bt brinjal was released for planting in Bangladesh by BARI anyway, and without proper labeling in accordance with the law. The excuse for this travesty? BARI says there are no laboratories in Bangladesh to conduct this type of research, so releasing the crop without them was the only option (other than not releasing it at all, of course).

I saw that. That's exactly what I mean, they will do and say anything to push their agenda, regardless of whether we want it or if it's safe for us or the environment. And then they wonder why the world's falling apart, the bees are dying, the oceans are poisoned, etc., etc. :(

I also saved the www.gmwatch.org link to catch future news on the subject. Thanks Elk!

Are they trying to engineer in some flavor?
Maybe they inserted the parmesan gene.

I've always wondered ... if they're going to genetically engineer all these plants ... why don't they engineer coffee beans that come with nicotine in them? Make mornings easier and more pleasant.
