GMO labeling subterfuge

Anti-GMO people might laud the possibility of the passing of The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015 – but, if they really knew the dirty little secrets behind the whole package they would sing a much different tune. Did you know that this proposed law is actually being backed and driven by Monsanto, Koch Industries and Dupont (among others)? In fact, their banner-child organization is named “The Coalition for Safe Affordable Food”. This little ole coalition has since written a letter to Congress saying that GMO labels would be misleading because GMOs are safe and the net-effect of labeling would mean “higher food prices for hard working American families.” One huge problem is that this bill actually contains a “prohibition against mandatory labeling” while allowing only for voluntary USDA certification and labeling. The absolute biggest problem is that this bill would override any and all state or local laws that require GMO labeling. Bottom line, it will specifically block any real GMO labeling efforts from ever happening – unless, perchance, the FDA determines that some particular GMO product is ever found to be unsafe – in that case, label that one only. Solution: If in GMO doubt – just leave the food out! Just don’t even buy it.
