Wow Monsanto "rationale" is absolutely frightening...
Apparently the difference between GMO and non GMO is "so insignificant" it makes "no sense" to have to "label it" on foods. Yet it is significiant enough to make a multi-million dollar industry out of??
If the difference is “so insignificant” then why continue producing GMO and spending millions researching and developing something “so insignificant”???
THAT is what makes… “no sense”…
You have to be some kind of mentally challenged to not see through that BS…

They dont want you to see this!
Even at Monsanto, many in-the-know employees won't consume the company's own GM creations. Back in 1999, the management of the cafeteria at Monsanto's UK headquarters in High Wycombe, England wrote:
"In response to concern raised by our customers . . . we have decided to remove, as far as possible, genetically modified soy and maize (corn) from all food products served in our restaurant. . . . We have taken the above steps to ensure that you, the customer, can feel confident in the food we serve."

A gene is extracted from an organism with the desired property, placed into the chromosome of a single cell of the organism you're growing, and then allowed to grow into multiple cells, then eventually into a plant or animal.
Genetic modification can not possibly give an organism any unwanted properties unless it is done deliberately. However, when done right, it can give them brilliant properties that can server dozens of purposes.
The only thing stopping that happening is fear mongering from people who have no idea how it even works.

No. The thing that is really happening is that not only are there millions of people refusing to eat this crap but entire Nations are banning it. AFTER their scientists and higher learning institutes have investigated not only the GMO products but Monsanto itself.
But I guess millions of people and many Countries around the World are just concerned for no reason.
I'll take my chances on choosing to NOT consume something that even the staff of Monsanto don't want on their dinner plate.
