GMO labeling

(NaturalNews) A proposed new federal law just introduced by Rep. G.K. Butterfield (a Democrat) and Rep. Mike Pompeo (a Republican) would outlaw state-enacted GMO labeling laws. The new law, ridiculously called the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act, is actually an last-ditch, desperate effort by the biotech industry and the GMA to forever bury the truth about GMOs so that consumers don't know they're eating poison.

According to mainstream media reports (1), the bill would require the FDA to mandate GMO labeling only if those foods "are found to be unsafe or materially different from foods produced without biotech ingredients."

Because the FDA and USDA have already decided, against all scientific evidence, that GMOs are "safe" and "not materially different" from other foods, this requirement is nothing but sheer sleight of hand and a pandering to idiocy. In truth, this new bill, if passed into law, would allow food companies to permanently and insidiously hide GMOs in all their products forever, nullifying the numerous state-based GMO labeling laws which are on the verge of passing.

The Environmental Working Group calls this proposed new law the "DARK Act" (Denying Americans the Right to Know), saying:

After two states have passed GE labeling bills and more than 30 others are poised to consider similar labeling bills and ballot initiatives, the food and biotech industry have goat-roped some members of Congress into introducing legislation to block state GE labeling laws.

Push for GMOs run by criminally-minded organizations

GMOs have already been restricted or banned in over 60 countries (2), and Americans are very close to achieving victory in state-based GMO labeling campaigns. The very idea that American consumers might find out they've been eating GMO poisons in most of their favorite foods is so horrifying to the biotech industry (and the processed food front groups) that its enforcers are now seeking this "nuclear option" to legally deceive consumers about GMOs with the complicity of the FDA.

The Grocery Manufacturers of America, the same criminally-run group that broke election laws in Washington State to funnel industry money into a campaign to defeat GMO labeling laws, predictably endorses this proposed new law. In fact, so does the American Soybean Association which would obviously love to see the U.S. government codify the industry-wide conspiracy to keep consumers in the dark about what they're eating.

Have no doubts that the criminally-run biotech industry, which already controls a well-funded group of intimidation operators, will pull out all the stops to threaten, intimidate and even blackmail U.S. lawmakers into voting for this bill. Biotech people play dirty, and they threaten everyone who dares question the safety of GMOs -- scientists, activists and journalists alike.

Expect a massive grassroots backlash against the proposed law

Remember when Obama promised in 2008 that he would push for GMO labeling of foods? That fake promise has long since faded, of course, and now most of the people who voted for Obama are both extremely angry at the betrayal and extremely motivated to push for real change in Washington.

State-based efforts to label GMOs have been well-supported by activists but have been out-spent by the wealthy biotech industry and its ability to buy off scientist-whores who mislead the public with the most bizarre quack science imaginable (such as claiming "genetically engineering" plants are the same as "selectively breeding" plants).

The health-conscious public is wholly fed up with the deceptions, the betrayals and the intimidation tactics being deployed against scientists, speakers and authors who rightly question the safety of genetically engineered crops. Beyond the personal health effects, there's also the larger question of genetic pollution and the risk of systemic ecocide (ecological mass death).

GMOs are unfit for human consumption

There are no long-term studies showing GMOs to be safe for human consumption. There are no long-term studies showing GMOs are even safe to grow in the open air! Yet we are routinely told by GMO pushers and their media flacks that GMOs are safe because "they are no different" from other foods.

But then, somehow, Monsanto, DuPont and other companies have been awarded patents on many of these seeds. How can something be patented if it's "no different" than the other seeds? It can't, of course. If the seeds are patented, then they are obviously different.

Only in America, under the insanity of federal food laws, can something simultaneously be "unique" and "no different" at the same time.

The law should actually be called the "Dangerous and Deceptive Food Labeling Act"

Be prepared to fight hard against the "Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act" which is specifically designed to support "Dangerous and Deceptive Food Labeling" from the outset. Most federal laws are, of course, named exactly the opposite of what they seek to achieve.

GMOs aren't safe, and if they aren't disclosed on food labels, then those labels aren't accurate, period. No amount of denial, intimidation and doublespeak can counter these simple, straightforward facts.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
