Bill Maher Talks Monsanto, Genetically Modified Food (GMOs) – HD


Weight Loss Tip: It is important to get enough cobalt in your diet, because it is required for metabolism of the B vitamins, in particular, B12 (also known as cobalamin). It can be found in dark green leafy vegetables like spinach. But, the best sources are organ meats, such as livers, kidneys, and hearts.

Political comedian Bill Maher weighed in on Monsanto and GMOs on the June 22 2012 episode of Real Time with Bill Maher – panel included Nick Gillespie, Rachel Maddow, Mort Zuckerman & Mark Ruffalo. Yes on Prop 37 in California! http://www.sunfood.com/prop37

  1. The Mike Taylor FDA Monsanto conspiracy has been debunked. When Mike Taylor
    worked at Monsanto he advised the company to be more transparent he advised
    them to support labeling. Now as a FDA employee Mike Taylor is recused from
    working on conflicting issue with Monsanto and labeling. The FDA does a
    good job of preventing conflict of interest, insider trading and
    corruption. Anyone can review the financial portfolio of FDA employees who
    make it open to the public. In fact not just FDA but all government
    employees. There is no conspiracy of FDA approving foods or drugs on behalf
    of corporations like Monsanto. Just another conspiracy theory. Bill Maher
    is being a hypocrite about this he always jokes about republicans believing
    the Obama Muslim/Kenya conspiracy, or about them being anti-science and
    doubting climate change but here Bill is being ant-science and falling for
    the Monsanto conspiracy. How is it that liberals fall for the Whole Foods
    quackery of whole organic foods and pseudoscience regarding gmo?

  3. monsanto ex executives have high positions now in our government,,what a
    wonderful way to control the people..kill them slowly and boost the medical
    community. Then there is the depopulation agenda. Well done Maher on this
    one

  4. The Dark Act s of politicians bought and sold by CORPERATIONS and so called
    Elite are the prime reasons we need to: Stop our GOVERNMENT they are
    clearly out of control… we should all have a clue by now to stop the
    Liberal / Conservative bullshit they are all politicians working for the
    FREDOM HATERS…we have all seen and felt the criminal activity…and hell
    now we do not even know what we are putting in our children’s mouth. ”
    Anyone is better then a politician…even an unborn baby ” Cheers Doyen

  5. I don’t understand Mr. Gillespie’s argument. He claims that such labels
    should only be used if they are “useful.” Isn’t this in sharp contrast to
    the basic principals of (neo)classical economics? As I recall it, perfect
    information—viz.: ALL information necessary to make an informed decision—is
    required for all participants in a free market.

    I’m not surprised, though, that Capitalists discard Capitalist principles
    in order to fill their pockets.

  6. Bill got it wrong here. GM crops have nothing to do with big dirty
    corporations like Monsanto except for some of their investments on
    research. It is largely based on initiatives in Europe. As a Masters
    student in Biotechnology I’ve read a lot of literature & research on GM
    crops & to date there have been no negative effects. Just ask Neil Degrasse
    Tyson who would beg to agree. Just because some crops have genes obtained
    from bacteria doesn’t mean it’s any different from the food you eat
    everyday because everything has gone through genetic modification over
    centuries of human selection. The corn you love to grill on weekends to the
    spinach kids hate to eat all looked, tasted & were genetically different a
    century ago as farmers kept on selecting only the breeds that were the
    sweetest, juiciest, biggest & most appealing. We’ve lost a lot of the
    natural nutrients in a lot our food including fruits & vegetables as a
    result. Fun fact: Certain Corn varieties 200yrs ago were as nutritionally
    rich & diverse as the ultra-healthy Spinach today.
    Or how about the bread, yoghurt & cheese you eat? All involve various types
    of bacteria & in the case of cheese feature live forms even after
    processing.
    So yes there has been a lot of campaigns of misinformation running around
    particularly in the US. Labeling the food as GM would not make much
    different since people still think it’s dangerous. Educating the general
    public on the safety & validity of GM crops is key as they are the future
    as regions of fertile farm-able land decrease leading to a demand for high
    yield low maintenance strains of crops.

  7. Is this to depopulate? No better then that Syrian president with all this
    poisonous food etc..

  8. We all have the right to make a choice. This country should rid the GMO
    industry completely, along with any food merchant who sells, cooks or
    serves it, and most of all, any one involved who had anything to do with
    campaigning or approving this poison to the american people. Whats sense of
    having government agencies specifically to protect us if they are doing the
    opposite?

  9. Hahahaha 0:06 dude that a
    played the hulk starts laughing sort of nervously when he hears someone
    mention the truth. He doesn’t even try to deny it.

  10. Bush trained Bill Clinton who was the one who signed Monsanto to operate in
    US. Obama made a pact with Hillary to support her campaign after he was
    done. Obama said in 2007 “we will label GMO food” but they didn’t. They are
    a conspiracy. They are not democrats, they are a fraud. Fascists.
    Dictators. Psychopathics. Motherfuckers. I am glad I didn’t vote for any of
    them. And I will not vote for Shillary. Hell no. Bernie or bust!

  11. Gillespie is a liar and he knows it as he does it. You can see it in his
    eyes. He lies and lies and lies and laugh inside about it. No health risk
    he says over and over, knowing it is complete bunk. Gillespie, you are
    headed for the eighth rung of Hades!

  12. Cant stand Monsanto or Maher… BTW: Stop our GOVERNMENT they are clearly
    out of control… we should all have a clue by now to stop the Liberal /
    Conservative bullshit they are all politicians…we have all seen and felt
    the criminal activity…and hell now we do not even know what we are
    putting in our children’s mouth. ” Anyone is better then a
    politician…even an unborn baby ” Cheers Doyen

  13. The guy in the leather jacket was the only knowledgable person on GMOs but
    the pricks wouldn’t let him get any words in

  14. Thanks for the support Coach. Theres an old saying, “You are what you eat”.
    And there are people getting sick at a earlier age more than ever. I wonder
    why?

  15. ok sorry i have posted way too much…here…but one more comedic funny ‘
    ism… Why is gold so expensive? First some might think, inflation…maybe
    true…but you know what i think is also true…i know it is funny…”they”
    …who would they be anyway? …some Senators maybe mining gold… i’m
    thinking rich and worldly powerful elite ruling class of the sort… has so
    much gold it would make most of us puke or shit in our britches… or at
    least make Fort Knox KY rollover in it’s grave. maybe this is just my
    thought on the matter… anywho FRack their gold…our family will keep our
    rich land and organic farm, and non GMO SEED. way more valuable for
    longevity. IMA. 8) Cheers

  16. this is from 2012? yep, i admit i was probably anti-GMO then. How things
    changed in such a few years, now liberals are pretty divided, there’s the
    side that holds anti-GMO views, is prone to fascistic political
    correctness, anti-VAX conspiracies, SJW tantrums, chronic orthorexia, etc
    and the inescapable dissemination of all the above bullshit everywhere, a
    generation of retards edumacated thru bogus memes and cockwomble hashtags
    … I’ve been called in one week “islamophobic neocon’ and “fornicating
    commie faggot”, i m officially out of the identity politics spectrum.

  17. The corporations are laughing at us. They even get us to wear their logos
    so we advertise for them.

  18. Genetically modified organisms are not dangerous to people’s health. Just
    take a biology class or something because it’s pretty obvious. Dangerous to
    the ecosystem? That’s a more interesting argument because there is evidence
    to support it.

  19. who is this Nick guy and can he make it more obvious that they are paying
    him to defend shits like monsanto? come on people

  20. The free market is already correcting this. Companies are rushing to go
    natural and non-gmo. Consumers just need to boycott anything that is not
    verified as non gmo and the industry will have no choice but to respond.

  21. Lastly, the oft repeated idiom that no tests have proven any negative
    effects from GMO foods is an out right lie. Shills repeat this because the
    GM companies have done a Kafkaesque job of preventing studies on the
    grounds of “patent infringement,” thus creating a self perpetuated hoax.
    However, they have not fully succeeded in this crusade. I observed research
    and images from a study where pigs fed gmo feed were tested against pigs
    fed non gmo feed. Pigs were a good test subject because of how much they
    eat. The stomachs of the gmo fed pigs were, yellow, shriveled, and visibly
    damaged. Many of them became gravely ill with severe digestive issues and
    often had shortened life spans. None of the non-gmo fed pigs had any of
    these effects. Look into this study and also the studies on root structures
    of GMO soy crop vs non gmo soy crop.

  22. Bill Maher be like “Religion and political correctness are for *idiots*!
    Now let me tell you all about the evils of genetic modification, vaccines,
    and Big Pharma…”

    Also, didn’t he, last season, have on a snake oil salesman who claimed to
    have cured HIV? The cognitive dissonance is strong in this one…

  23. Monsanto is doing the same as the tobacco companies did in the 70′ 80′ 90
    and to some degree, still denying to this day that tobacco is not
    detrimental to your health , if Monsanto believes that GMO is not
    detrimental to your health ,then label it and let the people choose what
    they want to buy.

  24. GMO’S are forced by their billions of dollars they are buying
    everyone.Monsanto patent on gmo’s should be stripped from them they
    monopolize from Bullshit science.
