We need our food labeled as to if it is genetically engineered or not .
As it is the US government is owned by the corporations. It is now the "Corporate States of America".We need to push our politicians to work for US.
It is bad enough that there is garbage food being fed to us without knowledge.

There has never been a time where it is more important that we pay attention to our own well being and watch out for the corporations who, without care, push ahead, with money making in mind and human welfare tossed to the wind. Corporate abuse.

This is NOT a done deal yet people. “If an organization like USAID [US Agency for International Development] wants to help us with a company like Monsanto, we would hope that they would help us to actually develop our own hybrids instead, not to import their foreign seeds,” said Hari Dahal, spokesperson for the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives, at a recent parliamentary hearing on food sovereignty, as reported in local media. While this would be the first time a donor subsidizes the cost of hybrid seeds on such a large scale in Nepal - targeting 20,000 farmers in three commercial maize-producing districts of Kavre, Chitwan and Nawal Parasi along the southern lowland belt in the Terai region bordering India - Monsanto has been exporting hybrid maize seed to Nepal since 2004. Monsanto’s presence was unheralded, unsubsidized and until recently, largely unnoticed, said Sabin Ninglekhu, an organizer of the Facebook campaign. “To be honest, we didn’t know Monsanto was in the country before the USAID announcement.”
