Are You Kidding?

No friends, I am not kidding. A recent article in the New York Times was titled, “Group Seeks Special Label for Food: ‘Natural’ The Grocery Manufacturers Association, which represents the nation’s largest food and beverage companies, has petitioned the FDA to allow the term ‘natural’ be attached to labeling on foods that contain genetically modified ingredients like corn, soy, canola, and sugar.


I don’t know about you, but I can't wait to see how the FDA rules on this one. Since when does genetically modified have anything to do with natural? It sickens me, and I am sure many of you as well, that our federal regulatory agencies have become shills for the processed food industry. It should be plainly obvious that the FDA and the USDA do not work for us and instead are working for the likes of Big Pharma, and the processed food industry just to name two.


Recent studies found that rats fed genetically modified corn developed tumors compared to rats who were fed non-GMO corn. Genetically modified corn is resistant to the herbicide Roundup. Guess who makes both? That would be the giant Monsanto.


Folks this has gone on long enough and it is time to demand that our food be properly labeled and that our regulatory agencies actually start performing there duties. That would be protecting the health and safety of the American public. It is time to contact the FDA and USDA and let them know how you feel.
