Why Labels on Genetically Engineered Foods Won’t Cost Consumers a Dime

The biotech industry, led by Monsanto, will soon descend on the state of Washington to try their best to defeat I-522, a citizens’ ballot initiative to require mandatory labeling of foods that contain genetically engineered (GE) ingredients. Voters should prepare themselves for an onslaught of discredited talking points, nonsensical red herrings, and outright lies designed to convince voters that they shouldn’t have the right to know what’s in the food they eat.

Topping the biotech industry’s propaganda playlist will no doubt be this old familiar tune: that requiring retailers to verify non-GMO ingredients in order to label them will be burdensome and costly, and the additional cost will be passed on to consumers who are already struggling to feed their families. How does the affidavit system work? Is the system reliable? Monsanto's Dark History 1901-2012. » Court: Organic farmers can sue conventional, GMO farmers whose pesticides ‘trespass’ Alex Jones.

» Court: Organic farmers can sue conventional, GMO farmers whose pesticides ‘trespass’ Alex Jones

HuffNatural News Aug 3, 2011 Purveyors of conventional and genetically-modified (GM) crops — and the pesticides and herbicides that accompany them — are finally getting a taste of their own legal medicine. Minnesota’s Star Tribune has reported that the Minnesota Court of Appeals recently ruled that a large organic farm surrounded by chemical-laden conventional farms can seek damages for lost crops, as well as lost profits, caused by the illegal trespassing of pesticides and herbicides on its property.

Oluf and Debra Johnson’s 1,500-acre organic farm in Stearns County, Minn., has repeatedly been contaminated by nearby conventional and GMO farms since the couple started it in the 1990s. A local pesticide cooperative known as Paynesville Farmers Union (PFU), which is near the farm, has been cited at least four times for violating pesticide laws, and inadvertently causing damage to the Johnson’s farm. The Johnson’s let the first incident slide.

Brands to boycott: Naked juice owned by PepsiCo, Odwalla owned by Coca-Cola. (NaturalNews) Pepsi and Coke both sell "natural" food smoothies and other products under the brands Naked and Odwalla, respectively.

Brands to boycott: Naked juice owned by PepsiCo, Odwalla owned by Coca-Cola

Both of these so called health food brands have been around for some time now, yet most people are completely in the dark about the corporations behind these creations. Pepsi and Coke only pretend to support healthy food choices. Both of the industry giants donated millions to defeat proposition 37, the GMO labeling act. And lets not forget, these are the owners of the two biggest soft drinks partially responsible for our country's all time high rates of obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Unfortunately most consumers are tricked into thinking they are doing something good for their health when they drink a Naked or Odwalla juice. Lets look at the facts: - In its early days, Odwalla was a small company owned by a few individuals that made real, raw food juices. . - Neither of these food drinks use organic produce, which means you're ingesting pesticides.



YOU'RE NEXT IF YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT IT.Find out why right now: The recent release of the first ever long-term study to examine the consequences of prolonged consumption of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) has set the world ablaze calling for an immediate embargo ON ALL THINGS GMO. I must repeat this part: This is the first LONG TERM STUDY EVER DONE on GMO! Turns out it does cause cancer, fast and via monstrous tumors! All these big chemo-tech companies breed the poison in food, deny its poison, and then sell it to doctors, hospitals and oncologists as the best way to heal this chemical “injury.”

This precedent setting trial showing this GM corn strain causes cancer has attracted a torrent of abuse, especially in the , but it cannot be swept under the carpet any longer. We should know exactly what is in our food at all times. The proof is in the pudding: Let me tell you know exactly who is pushing to keep GM food from being labeled. BASF plant science. GMO FOODS.
