Monsanto Threatens To Sue Entire State Of Vermont Over Food Labeling Bill
Monsanto, that sickening institution behind Agent Orange and strawberries made out of fish and sugar made out of Axe Body Spray,* has claimed and will probably claim until the end of time that you don’t really need to know that your “all-natural” cereal is actually created in a lab. DON’T YOU LIKE IT? Don’t you feel yourself turning into a Transformer? But the state of Vermont is particularly not thrilled about Monsanto’s coquettish behavior, and is trying to pass H. 722, which would require food labels to tell you whether a product is genetically modified, and would prevent that “all-natural” designation from appearing on the packaging of a GMO food, BECAUSE IT ISN’T. The corporation has so much disgusting dirty cash on hand, however, that it has decided to intimidate the people of Vermont — not a timid bunch, mind you — out of proceeding with the bill. The sad thing? It looks like it’s working. Fish strawberries WILL RISE AGAIN.
COMMENT FROM GEORGE CLAXTON-The food labeling proposed legislation in Vermont is quite interesting becase it is a step in the right direction. However, how about extending the proposed legislation to include all BYPRODUCTS in any food. For example, although 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D does not contain dioxin (TCDD), it does contain other less toxic dioxins. 2,4-D was half of the poison known as Agent Orange.
Why shouldn't the manufacturers of food products be forced to tell the truth on all foods that contain chemicals that can be hazardous to human health?
