GMA unifies food industry in GMO label fight

The Grocery Manufacturers Association doesn't want you to know what's in your food. They want all GMO commodity crops to be considered 'natural' and only supports voluntary labeling of GMOs in food. Labeling scares them. And rightfully so, they have been hiding pesticides and harmful ingredients in food for years. There are so many inaccuracies in the statements from the CEO of the GMA, it is hard to know where to start. Keep in mind the next GMO corn coming to a store near you is going to be coated with 2,4-D herbicide, one of the original ingredients of Agent Orange, and further artificially designed in a lab to create toxins in each and every cell of the plant. Poisoned on the inside and outside. Just common sense says that will cause some real health issues when consumed over a lifetime. And they think that should be considered natural. WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW ABSOLUTELY WHICH FOODS ARE UNNATURALLY CREATED BY THE INSERTION OF FOREIGN DNA INTO PLANTS FROM ENTIRELY DIFFERENT ORGANISMS, LIKE BACTERIA AND VIRUSES. PLANT DNA CROSSED WITH ANIMAL DNA IS NOT NATURAL. And we have the right to know which pesticides are sprayed on GMO crops. The GMA thinks it should be called natural, because that will boost sales.

Childhood cancer rates continue to accelerate and not to mention allergies and autism. The exposures to chemicals in our food is a result of the partnership and collusion between the FDA and giant agricultural/chemical companies. We must stop the revolving doors between business and the government agencies that are supposed to be policing them. Money shouldn't be the loudest voice in the room.

Just remember this: Whatever big business wants, it's not because they are thinking of your welfare. I guarantee whatever they are suggesting is to protect their profits. Don't trust the FDA as well, they are manned to great degree by previous executives of the big agriculture/food/chemical industries. Just pass the labeling laws and let's see where the cards fall. I bet it would all work out, and to our favor as consumers. It didn't crash the agricultural or food industries in the more than 65 countries that now restrict GMOs or require labeling, including the most populated country on earth, China. They are spreading fear and false information to keep us in the dark.
