Many Americans have been caught up in Presidential race and in the Brexit vote in which Great Britain has voted to leave the European Union (EU). Unfortunately, while these newsworthy stories have been plastered across the media, another newsworthy story has received scant coverage, and this story is important to your family’s health.
Mike Adams describes what this danger is:
“According to this announcement from the United States Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, committee leaders have reached a “bipartisan agriculture biotechnology compromise solution.”
“What exactly is this so-called ‘compromise?’
“The complete banning of all GMO labeling state laws across America.
“And that’s just for starters. After that, this new “compromise” decrees that no foods shall be GMO labeled for two years while the USDA ponders the best way to deceive consumers and hide Monsanto’s GMOs for another few years. The suggested law also gives the USDA the right to decree that any foods with less than 50% bioengineered content could be considered non-GMO, by the way.
“As a bonus surrender to Monsanto, the law would also not require animal products derived from GMO-fed animals to be considered bioengineered at all. So cattle feedlots can pump cows full of GMOs and glyphosate for years, then sell the resulting beef as ‘all natural.’
“Finally, after two years, the USDA would then roll out a nationwide rule that would only require food companies to place a scannable QR code on their labels. Consumers would then have to carry mobile phones with them to scan all the codes in order to determine what’s really GMO. As stated in the proposed law:
“…the form of a food disclosure under this section be a text, symbol, or electronic or digital link…“
To put this in plain language, legislation has been agreed upon (though not yet passed) that would allow food corporations to label any food “all-natural” or “GMO-free” with very few restrictions, and, after two years, to make it inconvenient and, potentially, even difficult to be able to tell what is GMO-free or not at that time because consumers will likely need electronic devices with specific software to check the labels of every piece of prepackaged food that they buy.
Our recommendation is that you contact your Representatives and Senators and voice your opposition to any blocking of GMO labeling. You have a right to know, and your family has a right to be safe from these “foods.”
