Look Closer at What You are Eating
Want some more proof that Monsanto and other biotech giants are deathly afraid of GMO labelling initiatives passing within the United States? A new bill introduced by Monsanto’s star representative, Mike Pompeo, could soon BAN all mandatory GMO labelling in the US. OK so it's the USA but this is heading our way too, you can count on it!
The worst part? It was just approved by the House Agriculture Committee, which means it’s one step closer to becoming a fully-fledged law. The bill is formally known as H.R. 1599, or the ‘Safe and Accurate Food Labelling Act of 2015.’ More precisely, it has been dubbed to be the ‘Monsanto Protection Act’ on steroids.
We’re talking about a bill that was drafted up by the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), and pushed on us by all the usual suspects. All the ones who are afraid of you actually knowing what’s in your food. Because even if you don’t care about the genetic alteration of your food, you most certainly should be concerned as to whether or not it has been doused in Monsanto’s cancer-linked herbicides.
It’s essential that we spread the word on the issue and stop this legislation here and abroad. The time to act is now, before the GMO industry lobbyists shove a legal wrench into the fast-moving gears of the anti-Monsanto movement. It’s the perfect ‘brute force’ defence against a population whose mind has been made up in the GMO debate.
It has been made clear time and time again that over 90% of the US public is in full support of GMO labelling, and that scares a lot of processed food corporations.
It’s important to highlight this bill in order to show the true desperation of Monsanto defenders when it comes to their deceptive tactics. Instead of actually allowing consumers to know what they’re eating and make their own decisions, individuals like Mike Pompeo choose to strip away this ability through sneaky legislation.
The GMO-loaded processed food industry is scared, and they know they’re losing the battle for the food supply. This new bill is yet another example of the tricks they will use to take away our ability to know what we’re putting in our mouths.
