Ask yourself this question. When you do a job or complete a project are you willing to put your name on it? Are you proud of it and want people to know that you are the creator?
Imagine an Orange farmer who doesn’t want anyone to know that the Oranges he is selling to the public are his. Why would any reputable Orange farmer not want the public to know that the Oranges he is selling to them are his? This is what the corporations that are selling Genetically Modified Foods (GMOs) are trying to do.
If you’re not doing anything wrong, then you should have nothing to hide. Whether you believe GMOs are safe or not, most people would believe that GMOs should be labeled just like the amounts of sugar, sodium and fat are required to be labeled on food packages.
http://labelgmos.org/ is a website created by an earnest and caring group of people attempting to place an initiative on the 2012 ballot requiring that all GMO foods be labeled.
Detailed information about GMOs can be found at their website as well as:
Fact: There were no human trials conducted before Genetically Modified crops were introduced into the U.S. food supply. The health effects of most GM food products have never been fully tested.
Regarding the book, “Genetically Modified Foods: Debating Biotechnology (Contemporary Issues Series)” put out by editors Michael Ruse and David Castle, Khuffling writes, “Since this book has “debating” in the title you would think that it would provide a balance of both pro and con viewpoints on the subject of genetically modified foods. I did not find this to be the case.
The majority of essays in this book are pro genetically modified foods. Also, several of the pro GMO authors have ties to companies with an economic stake in GMO foods, like Monsanto, that are not disclosed. This significantly damages these authors’ credibility. I would not recommend this book if you are looking for a well-rounded exploration of this subject.” http://www.amazon.com/gp/pdp/profile/A2JJO86KBXF3UK/ref=cm_cr_rdp_pdp
Author Jeffery Smith reveals in his latest book “Seeds of Deception,” how industry manipulation and political collusion-not sound science-allow dangerous genetically engineered food into your daily diet.
Company research is rigged, alarming evidence of health dangers is covered up, and intense political pressure applied.
Scientists were offered bribes or threatened. Evidence was stolen. Data was omitted or distorted. Government employees who complained were harassed, stripped of responsibilities, or fired.
Laboratory rats fed a GM crop developed stomach lesions and seven of the 40 died within two weeks. The crop was approved without further tests. When a top scientist tried to alert the public about his alarming discoveries, he lost his job and was silenced with threats of a lawsuit.
Read the actual internal memos by FDA scientists, warning of toxins, allergies, and new diseases-all ignored by their superiors, including a former attorney for Monsanto. Discover how industry studies are designed to avoid finding problems. Learn why the FDA withheld information from Congress after a genetically modified supplement killed nearly a hundred people and disabled thousands.
Eating such experimental food is gambling with your health. Find out how you can protect yourself and your family.
