GMO labeling law on Ballot in CA
While the FDA maintains that GMO ingredients are no more harmful than other ingredients CA residents have amassed enough signatures to get the ‘labeling’ law on their Nov. ballot…three cheers for them.
The FDA maintains that GMOs are innocent so to speak while there is a plethora of scientific evidence that condems them to the sewer, which in my opinion is where they figuratively belong. I simply can’t say enough, nor can anyone else, about the dangers these nasties impose on our health and environment.
When will we learn that you can’t have government agencies/politicians and the like funded by the very companies that need regulation in the worst kind of ways. One in particular comes to mind, Monsanto! Yes, I am one of the millions against Monsanto!
Let’s stay tuned to the vote in CA. The reasons being brought forth for not requiring labeling, beyond the stance that GMOs are safe, are the liklihood of frivolous lawsuits etc. I would ask you to define frivolous. While I am sure there could be some stupid lawsuits filed, I would also warrant that the majority would be bona fide!
These GMOs have been around far too long and have not only contaminated our ‘heirloom’ crops but have contaminated our entire political/judicial system! We can theoretically recover from the latter but no one can see a full recovery of the integrity of our crops!
Sad this is I say!
