Generation Monsanto (GM)–Why We Need Labels on GM Foods by Ronnie Cummins

Posted on June 21st, 2010 by Roxanne | Posted in Notes & News

This kind of stuff is depressing, I know, but we’ve really got to defend ourselves against this one.   Remember when they said that asbestos was safe and even good for us?  And how about DDT?

“Most Americans simply do not understand that 80% of non-organic supermarket processed foods (basically every product containing soy, corn, canola, cottonseed oil, or sugar beet derivatives) are contaminated with GMOs. While nearly everyone in North America has eaten genetically modified foods, only 26% believe that they have.”

“Collusion between Monsanto and elected public officials (including the current Obama Administration) has obscured the fact that almost all non-organic foods in the US contain GMOs. Despite poll after poll indicating that 85-95% of US consumers want mandatory labels on foods containing GMOs, Congress has heretofore listened to Monsanto and corporate agribusiness, rather than their own constituents.”
