Ok, some of you may know that I am COMPLETELY against Monsanto and other BIO-tch companies. They are in bed with governments, get away with
non-testing of their products, allow people to freely eat their products without proper labelling, etc etc etc
GRR Monsanto especially!
This is just from a couple days ago,
The 'Monsanto Rider': Are Biotech Companies About to Gain Immunity from Federal Law?,
where Bio-tech companies are potentially going to be allowed a rider, to ask for a permit from the secretary of Agriculture to allow them to grow
crops, WITHOUT testing, regardless if a federal court has halted the growing while a Environmental Impact Statement is in process. Basically, they are
going to be allowed to bypass the system of checks and balances and grow whatever they want, regardless of the lack of scientific testing on the
And now this, check this out,
From Natural Society
We’ve gone on at great lengths discussing the dangers of genetic modification. Monsanto’s GMO corn has been linked to weight gain and organ
function disruption, while GMO crops and pesticides destroy our farmland and environment. According to the Alliance of Natural Health, the
grandchildren of rats fed GMO corn were born sterile. GMO is just one of those things to avoid, but with our own government in bed with Monsanto,
it’s not easily done. Monsanto has recently launched a proverbial war against the open labeling of genetically modified foods, and only through
activism and awareness can it be overcome
The People Versus GMO
In February of this year, Vermont contemplated the Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act. The proposed bill prohibits GMO food producers from
using keywords like “natural,” “naturally made,” “naturally grown,” and “all natural” to describe GMO ingredients and products. In the
same month, the National Conference of State Legislatures reported that nearly 20 states were considering similar programs. Public surveys and studies
also show a whopping 90 percent of the U.S. in favor of such practices.
So, not only could it cause sterility, which is unknown in humans so far, as we are being used as an experiment
BUT also, 90% of the U.S. wants
this labelling to happen!
Vermont put forward an initiative earlier this year to allow states to choose if the can impose labelling of GM foods, however it was shot down in the
senate, including by Mr. Rand Paul..
ATS-Rand Paul votes NO to labelling GMO foods!! How did your Senator vote?!?!,
And here is website that the article is talking about.. funded by the council for Biotechnology information

Stop the Costly Food Labelling Proposition.com
It is in regards to stopping Californias November 2012 proposition that would force GM foods to be labelled on products..
And what, pray tell, are the Bio-Tech companies telling you WHY you shouldn't vote for the labelling proposition?
It’s extreme. In recent decades, modern genetic engineering (GE) techniques have been used to develop improved varieties of corn, soybeans,
fruits and other foods that grow faster, are more resistant to pests, bacteria, viruses and other pathogens, and have enhanced nutritional and health
Oh right.. the labelling initiative is extreme!?
How about BT toxins from GMO corn found in fetuses? Not extreme enough?
- BT toxins found in human blood
- GM food toxins found in the blood of 93% of unborn
It would hurt California family farmers, food companies and grocers. The proposition would force California family farmers, food producers and
grocers to implement recordkeeping and labeling mandates that no other state or country requires
Well, I don't agree with this statement... Yea there will be more record keeping and such, BUT when it comes to the health of the population, I think
doing a little extra work is not just WORTH it, It should be MANDATORY! People have the right to know what they are eating!!! And yea, guaranteed a
product with a GM label will sell less when it is labelled, and if thats the case, then the GM industry must get better scientific data, reduce
potential toxins in our blood etc. Also, the Farmers will hafta to make a choice and i bet a ton of them will sway away fromo the bio-tech stuff,
because a majority of their customers will not want it! AND, maybe the farmers should force monsanto and others to spring for some of the costs of
It would increase food costs paid by California consumers. The higher costs that farmers, food companies and grocers would face because of this
proposition would be passed on to California consumers through higher food prices
Yup, most likely, which is unfortunate.... However, you would still have the choice to by GM foods, and if you don't like it, move to a state that
doesn;t care about you having you own choice about what is in your foods!
It makes no sense. The proposition’s labeling requirements would apply to thousands of common food products sold at farm stands, grocery stores
and other retail outlets. But it exempts those same foods when they are sold “for immediate consumption,” as in a restaurant. It would require GE
labels on fruit juice, but exempts all alcoholic beverages
Um, NO! What makes no sense if Bio-tech not wanting US TO KNOW!
It provides no health and safety benefits. The ballot measure is all cost and no benefit. The California Legislative Analyst’s Office has
concluded that it would cost our state government millions of dollars to try to enforce the measure’s regulations
Well, thats total BS.. How can they say it will provide no health and safety benefits?! GMO foods are potentially unsafe and for the most part,
UNTESTED! This is more crap from the lobbyists trying that are scared this is going to go through.. they don't want you to know whats in your foods
It would be a bonanza for trial lawyers, by authorizing “bounty hunter” lawsuits against family farmers, food companies, grocers and
retailers. This proposition was written by trial lawyers with a history of filing costly lawsuits against California businesses
haha.. OH. Monsanto.. basically you're saying you don't want to get sued?!! Of course not, it would expose you and other Bio-techs for what you really
are! Slimy, sneaky, in-bed with governments... UGH!
THE BOTTOM LINE: THE PROPOSED FOOD LABELING INITIATIVE IS EXTREME, COSTLY AND MAKES NO SENSE
NO NO NO!
What makes NO SENSE is you not allowing people the FREEDOM of choice! Isn't that what America was founded on? FREEDOM! The RIGHT TO CHOOSE!
