GMO plants, GMO people, and cancer
by Jon Rappoport

The war against cancer has painted a picture of hope: genetic solutions.
This, despite the fact that there are no successful genetic treatments for any form of human cancer.
The focus on genes is a diversion from obvious causes of cancer in the environment: industrial chemicals, pollutants, pesticides, food additives, and even pharmaceuticals.
This futile gene-fix has a parallel in food crops: genetically modify plants so they can grow despite drenching them with toxic pesticides. However, massive GMO crop failures and reduced nutritive value of such crops are two reasons why the gene model fails.
So it is with human cancer: let’s modify the genes of people and they will be impervious to the environmental assault of chemicals that cause cancer.
In other words, the fantasy proposes that some day, humans will be able to live in a toxic soup created by mega-corporations, and even thrive, because they have been genetically altered.
There is no reason under the sun to believe this.
“Even if environmental toxins trigger gene mutations that bring about cancer, we can just cancel out those mutations through better human engineering.”
This is like saying you can cure diseases caused by germs even though people’s immune systems are severely and chronically compromised.
The entire cancer industry exists to protect the corporations that are manufacturing products that cause cancer.
I made these points during a Coast to Coast AM radio interview last Sunday, and I make them here again, because major media news outlets are silent; they are part of the cancer industry and are beholden to the cancer-causing corporations that buy huge blocks of commercials.
In the so-called research community, scientists can spin their wheels and obtain grant monies to do experiments with genes and mice and cell lines forever and never emerge with results that will save lives.
These scientists and their corporate masters can herald minor tumor reductions.
But nothing changes. The war on cancer is a war on people.
