FDA Running Secret Propaganda Campaign?!?
It doesn’t matter how many times they’re linked to digestive problems… immune disorders… and even cancer.
Our government would rather swallow its own tongue than speak out against genetically modified foods (GMOs).
The Feds have been siding with big business – and risking our health – for years.
But now things have taken an even uglier turn…
The FDA has just been awarded millions of dollars to launch a propaganda campaign promoting GMOs.
It’s a devious plan that will spread lies all across our country… and put all of us in harm’s way.
Last month, the U.S. Senate voted… very, very quietly… to give the FDA $3 million for “consumer outreach and education regarding agricultural biotechnology.”
Let me put that another way – the FDA is about to spend millions of YOUR TAX DOLLARS to promote GMOs.
Can you believe it? The money will be used to convince us that genetically engineered crops are as safe and wholesome as mom’s apple pie.
What a load of garbage.
It’s not just the GMO foods themselves that have been linked to health problems (in study after study).
The chemical glyphosate – the primary ingredient in the weedkiller RoundUp that is sprayed on GMOs – is also considered a likely cause of cancer.
Nevertheless, more than 50 GMO giants like Monsanto signed a letter begging for the funding for the FDA.
Monsanto, by the way, does about $15 billion a year in sales. But I guess they’d rather use your money instead.
The fact is, these GMO giants know that the public doesn’t believe a word they say – so they want to use our government to spread their lies and nonsense.
Representative Nita M. Lowey from New York said it best:
“It is not the responsibility of the FDA to mount a government-controlled propaganda campaign to convince the American public that genetically modified foods are safe.”
Amen to that.
But the fact is, our government is in bed with the GMO industry. Agribusinesses donated almost $30 million to political campaigns during the most recent round of elections.
Some of that money even went to members of Congress who now sit on the agricultural appropriations subcommittee. The committee chair, Representative Robert B. Aderholt from Alabama, received $10,000 from Monsanto, alone.
It’s no wonder this bill passed!
These GMO giants can throw all the money at our government that they want. But it doesn’t change the truth.
For your health, your best bet is to buy organic produce and stay away from anything GMO.
And that’ll still be true, even after our government is done spreading $3 million worth of lies.
