    Over 90% of US citizens want GMO foods clearly labeled as such -- so what does Obama do? Signs a corporate wet dream bill which allows corporations the OPTION to label.

    You cannot make this stuff up.

    S 764, signed this past Friday... that's when you want to slide bad news along, when people are distracted by the weekend.

    Just a scummy thing to do. 60 other countries LABEL foods tainted by GMOs.

    Never got why people were afraid of GMOs. Gimme that tastier burger, crisper apple, sweeter corn. Make plants be able to grow in drier conditions, with less pesticides. I'm all for it.

    Kraft just recently stopped using yellow #6 in their mac and cheese. Yellow #6 has long been banned in Europe.

    GMO's are not the problem.

    It's bullshit... also removed labeling the country of origin of your food so you don't know if you're eating shrimp raised in a Vietnamese sewer or an American farm

    The real problem with GMO's is that some strains cannot naturally reproduce and then the farmer is beholden to the seed manufacturer for seeds every season.

    The more you know.

    GMO's are a sideshow started by the ago industries.
    It takes peoples minds off the real dangers of petroleum based fertilizers, toxic herbicides and pesticides, and forcing depleted soils without crop rotation to keep on producing using these fertilizers.

    You're right about this, I hadn't thought of that. But how many people would base their purchasing decisions on the well-being of farmers?

    In Obunghole/Killary's Globalist Nightmare, you don't have the right to know where your food comes from, or what's in it.

    You just thank your Government/Corporate Overlord for giving you sustenance for another day to continue your life as a widget in the global industrial complex.

    Or you could support Trump who has told the globalists to fuck off. :buhbye:

    Yep, and Bayer is trying to purchase them to fold them into their company too. Bayer/Monsanto would be a shit show.
