Get Genetically Engineered Vaccines Out of Organic!
Genetic engineering is excluded from organic. There is one exception: genetically modified vaccines. Under current law, genetically modified vaccines must be petitioned for use and reviewed by the National Organic Standards Board to be included on the National List of allowed substances. The problem is, the USDA National Organic Program hasn’t been enforcing the law.
The Organic Consumers Association is calling on the USDA to enforce current law. The USDA should train certifiers to identify genetically modified vaccines and block their use.
Scientists are warning, “Genetically engineered vaccines possess significant unpredictability and a number of inherent harmful potential hazards.”
Veterinarians are warning, “The widespread dissemination of live GE viruses is a very costly, high-risk, low health priority that if not prohibited or controlled internationally could amount to a biomeolecular assault on the life community of planet Earth. It could, through viral mutations and non-target host transformations, lead to the devastation of human civilization, and to animal populations wild and domestic”.
There are also environmental risks. The production of genetically engineered animal vaccines has already resulted in the contamination of food crops. Biotech firm ProdiGene tainted half a million bushels of soybeans with a trial vaccine for a pig disease, transmissible gastroenteritis. The incident is believed to have occurred because the soybeans were planted on the same site used to grow genetically modified pharmaceutical corn the previous year. Secretary Vilsack, then Iowa governor, defended the company, cautioning,”we should not overreact and hamstring this industry or limit Iowa’s ability to participate in this emerging industry.”
Tell the USDA that GMO vaccines have no place in organics.

So many people are zombies by media, television and other means of mass brainwashing and we need to reverse the effects and give people back their minds, and in return, their power and will to change and challenge the system.
