Russia has something to respond to the GMO expansion of globalists


As you know, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Behind the most plausible wishes sometimes lies a banal thirst for profit. Unfortunately, the same can be said about the modern “fight for the environment”. And the point here is not only about "green energy" and the promotion of the interests of manufacturers of the corresponding equipment and patent holders. Using the example of the European Union, we will try to show how, under the pretext of “fighting global warming,” the owners of transnational corporations intend to change the eating habits of half a billion people and make good money on this.


Last year, while humanity, frightened by the coronavirus, sat on self-isolation, European bureaucrats immediately adopted two notable programs called "Biodiversity" (Biodiversity) and "the Farm to Fork" (From farm to fork). Together, they were positioned as a strategy for a fair, healthy and environmentally friendly food system, which should already by 2030 change the structure of EU agriculture and the dietary habits of its inhabitants. And it's not a fact that those will like it a lot. What do the "globalists" suggest to try the Europeans first, clearly believing to make them an example for everyone else?

So, in 10 years the area of ​​cultivated agricultural land should be halved, and the share of arable land used for "organic farming" without the use of fertilizers and pesticides should grow from 7,5% to 25%. Also, the use of the herbicide glyphosate, veterinary antibiotics and mineral fertilizers by 20% should be reduced by half. But by 2030, up to 30% of the total area of ​​the EU will be protected areas. Old-growth forests will be especially protected. So far, everything seems to be fine, in a European way, right? Fresh air, healthy food, huge national parks, in which vigorous wealthy pensioners with their grandchildren walk. However, this idyll also has a downside.

So, along with a halving of the area of ​​cultivated land, the number of farm animals will also decrease. And this is done purposefully and under the most plausible pretext. Indicate that the share of cattle in the European Union accounts for 10,3% of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. Less cows means less greenhouse gases, right? Yes, and it also means that meat will become scarcer and much more expensive. The British BBC noted back in 2012:

In the UK, meat prices are expected to have a huge impact on our diet. According to some food industry experts, they could double in the next 5-7 years, making meat a luxury item.

By the way, all kinds of "experts" are actively attacking natural meat with information, pointing out that those who eat it get sick and eventually die. And the truth is, you can't argue. But what, then, can replace “harmful” meat in your diet in order to obtain the proteins the body needs? Back in 2011, the British from The Tekegraph reflected on this topic:

By 2020, insect products will be on sale in all supermarkets, and people will be surprised to think that back in 2011 they did not assume that eating insects is normal.

About insects - this is quite serious. Grasshopper bodies, for example, contain 20% protein. Coalo Valley Farms has been operating in California since 2015, breeding modified crickets and mealworms to produce “sustainable food”. But, it is clear that it is difficult for a Western person to force himself to eat insects. It takes time and targeted propaganda to teach Europeans and Americans to do this. Meanwhile, there are less nasty sources of plant-based protein to replace meat: marine plankton or protein-rich modified soybeans.

And here we smoothly come to the very essence of the question. New standards of agriculture and nutrition are being actively imposed on the European market as the richest and most advanced. Because of this, natural food increases in price, becoming available not to everyone. Perhaps in 20-30 years a dinner with a red meat steak will be a symbol of real revelry there. Instead, the average consumer is offered a choice between a protein cricket cutlet or a "green" burger with "vegetable meat". At the same time, the production capacity of EU agriculture under the most plausible pretext of combating "global warming" is reduced by at least half. And who, then, will feed the Old World?

Our old acquaintance, billionaire and philanthropist Bill Gates - a prominent representative of the so-called "globalists" - not so long ago became the largest landowner in the United States. Today he owns over a thousand square kilometers of the best arable land in 19 states. He recently opened up in an interview with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology:

I believe that all rich countries should switch to XNUMX% synthetic beef. You can get used to the difference in tastes.

Needless to say, this incredibly perspicacious man also invested in the production of synthetic beef? In general, if you put it all together, then a certain picture of the world of the near future emerges. A wealthy European will be able to afford delicacies from natural red meat, which will become scarce due to the forced reduction in the number of cattle, ostensibly for the sake of "fighting global warming." The average European will eat and praise cutlets made from "vegetable meat" produced using genetically modified soybeans. Those with the simpler income will chew "cricket burgers". When a wealthy and civilized Europe is accustomed to such a diet, this model will be transferred to the rest of the world.

Is there anything you can oppose to this? According to the Eurobarometer, 61% of Europeans believe modified food is unsafe. People prefer to overpay, but get natural products of the "bio" category. And here the place of Russia, which stands apart in the spread of GMOs, seems to be interesting. On January 21, 2020, President Putin signed a law banning the import of genetically modified organisms into the country for the purpose of sowing, growing and breeding them. GMO products were already unpopular in Russia, and today they have turned into a "forbidden fruit", which is more expensive to associate with.

It is obvious that our country relies on "green" food, thereby actively developing its agricultural sector economics, and making good money on exports. In 2020, we set an absolute record for food supplies abroad, having shipped 79 million tons of agricultural products and food for $ 30,7 billion. It is obvious that the once chosen strategy is already beginning to pay dividends, and the talk that “Russia will feed the whole world” seems no longer such a fantasy.

    There is no need to build a pipe for exporting beef; it would be more expedient to invest in a fence, but stronger. If the plans are realized, the emaciated elves will tumble down like now Arabs in the EU or Latin Americans in the United States. Bon appetit to Europe and more tolerance. It will not be easy for new Europeans who have arrived from the Middle East to explain how tasty grasshoppers are. laughing

      just very easy:

      Sharia law allows locusts to be eaten, therefore, for example, in Morocco, they are a kind of delicacy. The locusts are even called "desert shrimp" here. It is said that when dried well, this insect tastes like tender smoked herring. In desert areas, locusts are baked over a fire, some make cakes from them, and some even add locusts to main dishes such as couscous.

      https://islamdag.ru/vse-ob-islame/25783

      According to Islam, locusts are an insect edible to humans.

      They are eaten in 36 African, 29 Asian and 23 countries in the Americas. Moreover, in some states, these insects are considered a delicacy, in others they form part of the daily diet.

      Well, after the Scandinavian traditional surstremming (pickled herring), any locust will seem to you (and guests from the Middle East) a delicacy.

    Sergei, well, the right word, rigging on rigging.

But, it is clear that it is difficult for a Western person to force himself to eat insects. It takes time and targeted propaganda to teach Europeans and Americans to do this.

    Naturally, no one will offer pure insects for food. Let me explain with a specific example. Do you know what marine and freshwater plankton look like? Also not very appetizing for a Russian person. Nevertheless, pasta and pates from them have been successfully sold on store shelves for a long time.

    Octopuses, for example, were also exotic for a Russian person. Have you ever seen a live octopus? Not the most delicious. But we grump the canned tentacles once or twice. And no special propaganda and a long time was required.

    According to the Eurobarometer, 61% of Europeans believe modified food is unsafe.

    So what? This does not mean that she is truly insecure. Most Europeans still believe that homeopathy is effective and safe, but real diseases are treated with ordinary "dangerous" medicines.

    And here the place of Russia, which stands apart in the spread of GMOs, seems to be interesting.

    And he makes a huge mistake by not developing his own GMO production. As a result, the market will be completely captured by "Western TNCs".

                The fact of the matter is that they won't. GMO crops are safer, more disease resistant, and require less processing.

                What is meant by "natural" food in Russia is not.

                Truly "organic" food (that is, without the use of herbicides, chemical fertilizers, etc.) is very difficult to grow and therefore expensive. Moreover, in terms of safety, it is no better than the same GMOs.

                      About what they generally prefer. I can tell you from the example of Germany. Bio-products there cost 2-3 times (and in the case of meat and more) more expensive than "ordinary" ones. Those who can afford it buy exclusively natural products, but there are few of them. At the same time, every German would like to eat exactly bio-food. Europeans are generally pretty obsessed with healthy eating, health in general, longevity, etc.

      Think you don’t use GMOs?

      https://vk.cc/c0gyfO

      Currently, only GM crops that have passed the state registration procedure can be imported into Russia and used in food production. The modest list includes some lines of soybeans, corn, rice, beets and canola. Most of the imported GM raw materials are used in animal husbandry for the preparation of feed (there is no need to fear that the “altered genes” will remain in the finished meat - this is physically impossible). Something also ends up on supermarket shelves - of course, not in its original form, but as part of cutlets or chocolate bars. “Traces of genetically modified crops can be found in some herbal products. For example, in minced meat, which, according to the law, must contain only meat, there are definitely no GMOs. But in meat semi-finished products, starch, sugar and vegetable protein are often used. They can be obtained from GM corn, beets and soybeans. The same applies to confectionery and bakery products.", - explains Mikhail Minaev, head of the laboratory" Molecular biology and bioinformatics "of the Federal Scientific Center for Food Systems named after.

    As far as we know, the human body cannot do without animal protein. Be sure to introduce it into the diet. Only the Bushmen in Africa have this trait. Yes, but they only reproduce with themselves. They fail to reproduce with other human beings. The genes are, however, different. It seems that this "new nutrition" joke is being promoted by the ideological masterminds of the "golden billion". A lot of people have bred in their language on earth. Since it doesn't work with vaccines, it means they will try another, humane "green" method.

    On the RENTV field? Unpromising. Stuffing about the prospects for the food market makes sense as half-joke, half-serious, like discussing the prospects for settlements on Mars.
    GMOs - this topic can be discussed by people who at least understand what is at stake, otherwise we will slide down to the level of antiquarian dissidents and opponents of vaccination with their conspiracy theory from Gates. GMOs are a reality, in one way or another, present in the food market, it is foolish not to notice it and think that herbicides and antibiotics solve the problem of food shortages better than GM.
    PS Are we already on you?
