These big food and big ag groups hire the best and the brightest scientists and researchers to "prove" that genetically modified foods are good for our bodies and the world, that sugary soda "hydrates" us, that pesticides and high-fructose corn syrup are

According to articles on the internet (which is often wrong) the GMOs are transmitted like germs.
air- water- wind, GMO's are even in our vegetarian meats, milk, meat, vegies.

What we need to do is get the scientist to find ways of keeping us save in our GMO infested bodies.

Check the internet out for yourself......so many articles.

I hope you can find that I am mistaken,

Pledge signed.

We must get GMOs labeled. We must rid of GMOs.

Farmers who do not want GMOs in their fields should be able to sue Monsanto for contaminating their fields.

Ty, Nancy.

Noted. Thanks, Nancy. Took the GMO pledge at site. Also, while scrolling through today's headlines, I noticed one that stated the British Parliament had outlawed any GMO food to be served to them. But, it's OK for their citizens to eat on the "regular" economy.

"These big food and big ag groups hire the best and the brightest scientists and researchers to prove that genetically modified foods are good for our bodies and the world, that sugary soda is good for us, that pesticides and high-fructose corn syrup are harmless and that anyone who says otherwise is a crazy conspiracy theorist."

Seems to me that the best and brightest scientists and researchers could not be bought. I think what they acutally buy is the detritus that floats to the bottom of those professions, those who graduated with C or less averages and can't get jobs at reputable companies so sell their souls to whomever will pay them. Like the Koch boys, et al.

What's good for one group is good for another ... starting in the White House it seems.

They don't have to hire scientists. They just buy politicians to do their bidding and pass favorable laws the rest of us have to live with and die from and we can't even sue.

remember when false advertising used to be illegal? or was i hallucinating??
they WANT US SICK...
EVEN IF food was labeled, that doesnt mean anything..we still wont be able to trust that the food NOT labeled doesnt have it either..
even organic food is grown in contaminated soil..the water is tainted as is the air..face it, nothing is safe except what you grow yourself, and even then, who knows if the seeds were tainted...why do you think so many places are making it illegal to have a garden?? they want us sick
monsanto and the white house serve organic foods ONLY in their cafeterias...no surprise.
