Gates GM food crop
Gates foundation spends bulk of agriculture grants in rich countries
Most of the $3bn (£1.8bn) that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has given to benefit hungry people in the world's poorest countries has been spent in the US, Britain and other rich countries, with only around 10% spent in Africa, new research suggests.
Is glyphosate toxic to humans?
Of course glyphosate is toxic, It is a herbicide after all – the whole point of glyphosate is to kill unwanted plants. But it kills Bumble Bees which stops the Pollination of plants which intern kills the ECO system.
Companies connected to the Buildberg group and the Bill gates fund who's farther is connected to the Monsanto organisation have a vested interest in the marketing of GM foods and the Chemicals it takes to sustain them.
Within Europe and the UK Maize starch which is being used in cattle feed and some foods is now band. The way the genetics of the plant give it an ability to warn of predators by using a toxin from another plant and through gene splicing , the new GM crop host a variety of dangerous toxins that do not leave the plant when harvested.
Products from GM maize: Europe is largely self-sufficient when it comes to maize production. The Member States that formed the EU produce approximately 173 million tonnes of ensilage maize and 56 million tonnes of grain maize. An additional 10 million tonnes are imported predominantly from Argentina, where large-scale GM maize production is common.
When GM maize is grown in Europe, special rules need to be observed. Uncontrolled mixing of GM and conventional maize must be avoided. Food and feed that is made from GM maize must be labelled.
If European GM maize production were to increase substantially, consumers could expect to find products containing GM maize on the market.
Animal feed and starch production: Only a small fraction of the maize in Europe is directly used for producing food.
Most maize grown today is used as animal feed. To produce animal feed from maize, rather than harvesting only the ears, farmers harvest the entire plant. The maize is cut down, shredded, and processed by fermentation into what is known as silage.
Only a few foods are produced directly from maize. Some examples: Cornflakes, popcorn, canned sweet corn, corn on the cob, or corn oil.
Maize, along with wheat and potatoes, is an important source of starch in Europe. About half the starch derived from maize is used in food production. The remainder is used as a renewable raw material for the production of paper, packaging materials, textiles, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and much more.
Maize starch is used as a raw material in the production of numerous food additives such as corn syrup, corn sugar (glucose or dextrose), modified starch, and sugar substitutes.
