After all this time, the Administration is finally going to attempt to "modernize" some regulations involving GMOs that seem to be "outdated" or something.

They put out a Memo to some Cabinet Departments with some guidelines and such.

Maybe this sounds good on the surface, but I suspect this might be some kind of preliminary set up involving the controversial trade agreements.

Haven't a few Monsanto people been in government positions recently?

Hmmm.

White House Announces Plan To Revamp GMO Regulations



Just before everyone left for the Fourth of July weekend, the White House announced a plan for a major undertaking: A review of the laws regulating genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

In a memorandum to the heads of the Food and Drug Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Department of Agriculture, the Obama administration said the initiative would modernize federal regulation of GMO crops, animals and microbes, but does not apply to biotech products in medicine.

US regulations for GMOs have not kept pace with advances in technology, the White House reasoned, and haven’t been updated since 1992. A major thrust of the memo is the call for more transparency, as well as inter-agency coordination to ensure the environment and public health are protected. It also states that the regulatory framework should allow for continuing innovation by industry, as well as public confidence in the safety of its products.



Somebody needs to read this before they do

Mandatory labeling would be nice.... somehow I think it will be the opposite. Monsanto has been fighting anyone labeling their food as Non-GMO so I highly doubt labeling will be in our favor.

Probably setting up the world to not have a choice in consuming GMO but we shall see.


I also want mandatory "Country of Origin".

Mexico and Canada are now suing to remove that. Bastards.

We do not need GMOs at all.

We've been eating GMO's for quite some time, it really is just Monsanto's take on it that is disturbing. Seedless watermelons have been around for quite some time, that's a GMO. Monsanto took it in a whole new direction though, like "hey what if we induce the plant with cancer causing mutations to keep the insects away". That's when it went awry, and monsanto employees should be FORCED to eat only monsanto foods or quit their job. At least that way we are guaranteed a reduction of monsanto employees

Coming from this President makes me highly doubt it. Judging from past history , I would say the regulations are going to get easier on the Big M.Then Obama wil lhold a press conference on how he socked it to Monsanto. Then go on vacation and spend all that money they gave him.....
