ADMINISTRATOR OF THE FDA IS ALSO THE LAWYER FOR MONSANTO!!!
GMO foods are hurting humans and the Earth. They are causing illness and sterility in animals and passing through human bloodstreams to unborn babies. The U.S. is one of the only countries that does not require labeling. Could this be because the person who administrates the FDA is also the lawyer for Monsanto?
SAY NO TO GMO AND REQUIRE LABELING IN THE U.S AND THROUGHOUT THE WORLD!!!
And here's more info on this topic:
"The FDA does not require any safety tests on genetically modified foods. If Monsanto or other biotech companies declare their foods safe, the agency has no further questions. The rationale for this hands-off position is a sentence in the FDA’s 1992 policy that states, “The agency is not aware of any information showing that foods derived by these new methods differ from other foods in any meaningful or uniform way.” The statement, it turns out, was deceptive. Documents made public from a lawsuit years later revealed that the FDA’s own experts agreed that GM foods are different and might lead to hard-to-detect allergens, toxins, new diseases or nutritional problems. They had urged their superiors to require long-term safety studies, but were ignored. The person in charge of FDA policy was, conveniently, Monsanto’s former attorney (and later their vice president). One FDA microbiologist described the GM food policy as “just a political document” without scientific basis, and warned that industry would “not do the tests that they would normally do” since the FDA didn’t require any. He was correct.
