Christie Brinkley Slams Monsanto and GMOs, Says ‘We’re Guinea Pigs’

Supermodel Christie Brinkley is vocalization up about Monsanto, genetically engineered foods, or GMOs, and a purpose these argumentative crops play in a health.

The 61-year-old’s new book, Timeless Beauty, provides insights on vital a healthy lifestyle. One subject she’s quite endangered about is food and how Big Food impacts a lives.

“I consider there are so many issues with a food attention that are blatantly unpleasant to a world and us as individuals,” Brinkley told

Brinkley spoke of the hazard of monocultures on a honey bee population, in that huge tracts of a singular form of GMO plant such as corn or soy seem to make it tough for pollinators to thrive.

“The bees are pang right now and though a bees—well, Einstein pronounced when a bees go, a subsequent thing that goes are people,” Brinkley said.

In response to Brinkley’s statement, Monsanto told

“We were astounded to hear Ms. Brinkley’s comments. Honeybees are essential in agriculture. Monsanto’s possess fruit, vegetable, canola and alfalfa seed businesses count on healthy pollinators to be successful. We have finished poignant investments in collaborations and investigate for a raise of sugar bee health. All GMO crops are tested for intensity impact on sugar bees, as was glyphosate herbicide. These products, when used as intended, do not impact sugar bee health.”

Monsanto’s glyphosate-based herbicide, Roundup, kills each plant except for a genetically mutated (“Roundup Ready“) plants that are designed to grow right by it. While neonicotinoids are customarily pegged as a arch law-breaker to a country’s harmful sugar bee decline, scientists have related a monarch moth decline to a nearby expulsion of a milkweed, a vicious food source decimated by Monsanto’s flagship weedkiller.

Glyphosate formulations have also been related to a slew of disastrous tellurian health effects, including cancer. Monsanto denies these allegations.

During Brinkley’s talk with, she also finished it transparent that she’s an disciple of GMO-labeling, something that nearly 90 percent of Americans are in preference of.

“What we don’t like about GMOs is that we’re a guinea pigs. The testing—if there’s testing—we’re a ones doing a contrast and that is not satisfactory and similarly it’s not labeled so we don’t know if we’re a ones eating them,” Brinkley said.

“All a time we’re anticipating several links and we wish my food pristine and it can be done,” Brinkley added. “Monsanto and these hulk companies are usually holding over and their disregard for a health and a rights is unequivocally maddening.”

Brinkley, who is a vegetarian, cooking organic food though recognizes that not everybody can means it.

“The some-more we all join in and direct organic foods, a improved off that we’re going to be since each day they’re joining a chemicals, insecticides, pesticides and herbicides to group apropos waste and with women it could be related to a breast cancer widespread that we’re seeing,” Brinkley said.

Brinkley also suggested other ways we can learn some-more about what’s in a food. “One approach that’s really easy to get concerned is for people to Google Monsanto and review about what’s going on,” she said.

She urges people to pointer online petitions and have discussions about GMO food labeling, and to “make yourself listened so we can purify adult a food attention and know what we’re eating.”

Brinkley is not a usually celebrity concerned in a contentious GMO food fight. Musician Neil Young dedicated his whole final manuscript to holding on large companies like Monsanto.
