Millions Spent To Avoid Labeling GMO Foods
Normally, a product manufacturer spends a lot of money ballyhooing the improvements to a product by advertising it on the packaging and in commercials. When they add more whiteners and brighteners to soaps, they tell you! If the fat content is reduced, they tell you! If the product is faster or safer or environment friendly – they tell you about it on the product. But when the products (foods) are genetically modified, they spend millions to AVOID putting that label on the product. Why?
Monsanto is the primary promoter of GMO foods and other products like cotton. In fact, More than 85 percent of soybeans grown in the United States are genetically modified, and GM cotton is grown on more than 70 percent of cotton fields. GM corn is grown on about 50 percent of all corn acreage.
Monsanto feed for pigs and cattle has nearly taken over much of the world markets (pet foods are next), but they still spend millions of dollars on lobbyists to defeat any legislation or regulations that would require “GMO Labeling”.
We must act now and demand Congress and State Legislators to do their job of protecting the health and safety of the citizens – Require GMO labels on all products that have genetically modified content! Those lawmakers and regulators who are being bought-off by Monsanto are many of the same people who say they advocate a free market place. So, label the GM foods and then the people can decide if GM products are healthy or harmful.
