Congress passed a bill giving Monsanto the upper
hand in the food fight. This bill that was just
passed stated that the mandatory labelling of all
GMO is not going to happen.Monsanto spent millions
to block this.
We all have the right to choose what we want to
eat. No matter if it’s a hamburger or an organic
carrot. No one should deliberately be able to put
something in our food that would injure us or go
against our beliefs. If you were Jewish or Muslim,
you would be furious if someone put just a little
pork in food and just refused to label it. I guess
people assume that what you don’t know won’t hurt
you. When someone deliberately gives you something
that you don’t want, it’s a dishonest act of
violence on you and your family. That’s the end of
your trust in them and anything they say or do.
They are hiding from you what is unwanted or
harmful for the purpose of their own personal
gain, or they are just evil in nature.
When I lived in Telluride, Colorado in the
seventies, my entire family kept strict vegetarian
rules. We didn’t eat any animal products at all –
no chicken, beef, lamb, eggs, or any other animal
products. One summer night, we took the family
down to the Gypsy Moon restaurant for dinner. We
picked that restaurant because one of our friends
was cooking there, and he knew our diet habits.
My wife asked him, “Is the soup vegetarian?”
The chef replied, “Of course, it is.”
So, we all had a bowl. As we were eating, we
detected a strange taste, and asked the chef
again, “Is the soup 100% vegetable-based?”
That’s when he told us there was just a little
chicken stock in the soup. We were so pissed off
that he lied to us, we left never to trust him
again. Although we never lost his friendship, we
lost the trust in him forever.
The reason I am telling you these stories is, just
last week, the senators that we voted into office
let the American people down. Maybe it was out of
ignorance or greed, but they abandoned us and are
allowing companies to lie and use dishonest
business practices. They are counting on people
just being stupid as they pull the wool over our
eyes. I am talking about Monsanto, the makers of a
very toxic poison called “Round up”, and the
largest owner of seed companies in the world.
Their net income in the three months through last
November increased to $368 million or 69 cents a
share, from $339 million or 63 cents a year
earlier, Monsanto said today in a statement.
Profit excluding a discontinued business was 67
cents, beating the 64-cent average of 17 estimates
compiled by Bloomberg. Revenue rose 6.9 percent to
$3.14 billion, topping the $3.07 billion average
of 15 estimates.
But why does Monsanto want to keep the American
people in the dark over labelling? I read a
statement explaining the reason why: people will
not buy their products, and it’s all about
their money. They are not thinking about your health,
only their profits. It sure isn’t for the greater good
of peoples health.
Studies show that 93% of Americans support
mandatory labeling of genetically-engineered (GE)
foods. GE foods are labeled in 64 countries
including the entire European Union. The U.S. is
now one of the only developed countries in the
world that doesn’t require labeling. Don’t you
Things Monsanto Doesn’t Want You To Know About
You’ve heard the controversy about
genetically-engineered foods (GMOs), whether
they’re safe to eat. And the question of safety is
nowhere near settled, despite what the companies
that create GMOs would like you to think. But the
rest of the story about GMOs is far more complex.
For biotech companies, the real purpose of GMOs is
power and control over the food supply and,
ultimately, it’s about profits. The undeniable
fact is that GMOs are bad for our environment, our
food system, and the people in it.
1.GMOs increase the corporate control of our
2.GMOs don’t live up to the hype.
3.More GMOs means more chemical use.
4.GMOs and organics can’t coexist.
There are plenty of good reasons to be concerned
about GMOs. But for consumers who are concerned,
it’s not always clear in the marketplace where
these crops end up. and it looks like they
are putting a lot of money to block the labelling.
I support the right to know what is in our food.
We all should have this right to choose what we
want to put in our bodies. We have all heard the
statement, “We are what we eat.” Knowledge is
power. If we are kept ignorant, we can easily be
led around like sheep, about to be slaughtered.
