GMO Tests on Lab Rats

Just as tobacco research was suppressed by Big Smoke, so it seems GMO research is being suppressed by Big Frankenfood:
Now more than 2 years later, these are the facts: Séralini and his team's original study has been republished in a different peer-reviewed journal, Environmental Sciences Europe; they have won two key lawsuits against those who have attempted to ruin their reputations; and a recent peer-reviewed letter even asserted that Séralini and his team may have been right after all on their discovery showing tumors in lab rats fed GMOs. 
In other words, the jury is still out on GMO safety to say the very least, just as countless independent scientists have warned, and Séralini's study stands as yet another cause for concern with the ongoing GMO experiment. It also shows the lengths that the Biotech industry will go to in order to discredit any independent science that clashes with their own version of science.
The truth will out eventually, but there is another aspect to this apparently only I worry about: concentration of so much power in so few hands.  In USA 89% of the corn is now GMO.  Since GMO is under government issued monopoly, we have nearly 90% of our most common food under control of maybe a dozen people.  This is insanity.

There is no more revolutionary act a human can perform in capitalist American than start a business.  It is both counter-capitialism to start a business in USA, and part of the solution. Two in one!

Small businesses are necessarily free-market, since we have to pay our own way, as opposed to the capitalists who cannot proceed without their subsidies, or welfare.  America would die without its subsidy system, America will die because of the subsidy system.  People escape to anarchy in times such as this, and the free market is anarchy in action, the opposite of the chaos of capitalism.

In this specific case, Russia has outlawed GMO anything.  Russia has the space to grow anything.  At the same time Russia is experiencing trade sanction led by the USA as Russia failed to withdraw when the USA overthrew the elected Ukrainian government.  Their response has been wise: import substitution.  As oil revenue drops, and import prices become more dear for sanction, Russians can more easily begin to grow and make their own.

In USA cross contamination is one way that the GMO crop grows.  With only 10% of corn left non-GMO, and all that at risk in USA, corn might be imported from Russia for safety sake.  And to counteract the madness of GMO concentration in USA.  This not be shiploads as corn is normally traded, but pallet loads to be imported by small grocers, millers or whatever.

There is no evil the capitalists can perpetrate that does not have a fairly obvious and easy counteraction.  When your passions match one of those counteractions, expect all the more success.
