Former Vice President Dan Quayle is a complete twit.

And would ANYONE trust PR firm Ketchum when it spins for Russia and President Putin?

My goodness always knew these big companies were out right crooks. Shameful the lot of them. Nation’s lax policy on GMOs is the work of former Vice President Dan Quayle’s anti-regulatory crusade. It was designed and delivered as a political favor to Monsanto. This man has sold his country and soul for his 20 pieces of silver and he should be ashamed of his selfish avariciousness. What a sad indictment for the American people and who knows how far this evil pervades. Thank you for posting this interesting and informative post...

I completely agree with the article, but the situation is even worse - item 2 - safety - the big companies only allowed tests to be done on safety of their products for 90 days - studies had to be done in secret in various parts of the world for a couple of years and these showed that GMOs cause hideous cancers, endocrine problems and other illnesses.

Then there are the amount of glyphosate residues in the food - and the amount of glyphosate needed by GMO crops keeps increasing with new GMO crops - again glyphosate has been implicated in lots of hideous illnesses - and these crops cause new superbugs/superinsects and superdiseases to arise. GMOs and glyphosate are a disaster.
