The “Monsanto Protection Act” of Betrayal
On March 26, 2013, President Obama signed H.R. 933, the Agricultural Appropriations Bill....
However, a peculiar addition tacked onto the bill titled the “Farmer Assurance Provision” (Section 735) has food justice advocates and consumers in an uproar. The provision prohibits federal courts from banning the sale and planting of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs), even if they are proven to be dangerous to human health

Ahh.. so it's okay to complain about Obama's admin being involved with monsanto, but not the Trump admin?
Quite the koolaid your drinking...
Now if you really believe in labels, lets put labels on GMO crops, because most of them are grown from seeds that were COATED in GLYSOPHATE.
y Crops (RR Crops) are genetically engineered crops that have had their DNA altered to allow them to withstand the herbicide glyphosate (the active ingredient of Monsanto's herbicide Roundup). They are also known as "glyphosate tolerant crops." RR crops deregulated in the U.S. include: corn, soybeans, canola, cotton, sugarbeets, and alfalfa. When planting Glyphosate Tolerant crops, a farmer can spray the entire crop with glyphosate, killing only the weeds and leaving the crop alive.
You of all people Phage, I could quote you in other threads where you basically backed Obama on this and were suspect of anyone opposing Round Up.

This is proof Trump doesn’t give a crap about the average person. It’s all about business and money.
Which is not even close to what you said before because, who eats seed corn anyway? But yes, glyphosate (not sure about Roundup, in particular) is found in some corn and soy products in small amounts.
Hence, why Round Up is found in virtually all GMO foods.
