Starting in 1996, Americans have been eating genetically modified (GM) ingredients in most processed foods. Why isn't the FDA protecting us?

In 1992, the Food and Drug Administration claimed they had no information showing that GM foods were substantially different from conventionally grown foods. Therefore they are safe to eat, and absolutely no safety studies were required. But internal memos made public by a lawsuit[2] reveal that their position was staged by political appointees who were under orders from the White House to promote GMOs. In addition, the FDA official in charge of creating this policy was Michael Taylor, the former attorney for Monsanto, the largest biotech company, and later their vice president.

In reality, FDA scientists had repeatedly warned that GM foods can create unpredictable, hard-to-detect side effects, including allergies, toxins, new diseases, and nutritional problems. They urged long-term safety studies, but were ignored.

Today, the same biotech companies who have been found guilty of hiding toxic effects of their chemical products are in charge of determining whether their GM foods are safe. Industry-funded GMO safety studies are too superficial to find most of the potential dangers, and their voluntary consultations with the FDA are widely criticized as a meaningless façade.[3]

lots of good info can be found here if you can stomach it.

yes they have been found to be not good in many ways, but since it's a revolving door govt./corp. thing then no we have not been protected by any officials that should be on the job doing just that.

Yes organic growers are faced by all kind of regulations when it comes to the products they sell, but Monspanto and their kind are protected under the US patent from proving that their seeds or deception and good for the environment and human consumption and they have bought enough whores in the FDA to keep them quiet.

US Patent Office- this where the problem began, in allowing a patent on life. Monsanto’s seeds are protected under an ‘Intellectual Property’ patent; the seeds are good for one season. When a farmer buys Monsanto seed, he also signs the Technology Agreement that stipulates he may not collect seed and replant it. While the farmer is free to plant any type of seed he wishes, the courts have maintained that farmers are not tied to Monsanto seeds in future seasons. However, it is difficult and costly to stop using Monsanto seed once a farmer has planted it because he may not collect and replant the Monsanto seeds collected after harvest, and must buy all new seeds for the new season

Sound like a dictatorship to me.

FDA (US Food & Drug Administration): Many people rely on the FDA to determine the safety of food or a product. The FDA is corrupt, particularly within the realm of GMOs. The only “testing” for safety that is required is for the GMO producer to submit a self authored report on the new GMO’s safety. This fraud was accomplished by Michael Taylor, a lawyer who went to work for the FDA and established the “no testing” policy by reasoning that GMOs are “SUBSTANTIALLY EQUIVALENT” to food, and food has already been determined to be safe. However, this is an oxymoron because in order to receive a patent, the new product must be different. Michael Taylor (second cousin to Tipper Gore) is notorious for his “revolving door” employment within the US government and Monsanto- he was recently chosen by Obama as the Deputy Commissioner for foods in the FDA.

Hell that prove who runs things and the crap within the FDA.

President George HW Bush, under executive power, mandated the Doctrine of Substantial Equivalence of 1992, the same year that Agenda 21 was introduced. This policy requires NO health or safety testing before a GMO product is released into the public.

So we get poisoned and is all under the law.

The USDA has also engaged in illegal dispersal of subsidies to Monsanto as well as giving farmers a break on crop insurance premiums if they used Monsanto seeds, which is tantamount to product endorsement. Remember the USDA is business partners with Monsanto. This is where your tax dollars are going. We are paying for our government to poison us.

So nice to see how we have lost our power under the corporate dictatorship to chose for ourself in any aspect on this nations rulings.

I am so sad that people still doesn't get the real agenda behind of all this power grap over the people

In America anything and anybody in politics can be bought for the right amount of money and they will crap on their on families to get that money.

Wow. That is just so... messed up, to put it lightly. I was speaking with my mother yesterday, and she was saying that she was preparing the first farmer's market corn of the season. I said, "You do know that the days of Silver Queen, et al are long gone, don't you?" She sighed and replied that she did, but still wants to believe that it's possible to get back there.

The days of looking forward to that special corn is no longer, just as looking forward to a juicy strawberry is a thing of the past. When you can't even find seasonal produce when it's in season, there's something terribly wrong.

Couple this thread with the many others regarding questionable outcomes of lawsuits in Monsanto's favor:
Class Action Lawsuit Dismissed...

EPA Knew Monsanto
Caused Colony Collapse Disorder...

And this one that links Fox News with protecting Monsanto's interests:
FOX News Pressured By Monsanto...

Plus a bajillion additional articles citing links between Monsanto, the government and media, there is no doubt how expansive this problem is and how deep this goes. Why there doesn't seem to be a very large pool of awareness is incomprehensible.
