“Monsanto should not have to vouchsafe the safety of biotech food. . .Our interest is in selling as much of it as possible. Assuring its safety is the F.D.A.’s job.”
–Phil Angell, Monsanto corporate communication director
Anonymous lawmakers slipped the controversial “Farmer Assurance Provision” or “Monsanto Protection Act” (Section 735 of US H.R. 933) into a short term budget resolution (Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013 ) signed by President Barack Obama on March 20, 2013.
It effectively stops federal courts from being able to halt the sale or planting of controversial genetically modified or genetically engineered (GE) seeds.
This means that no matter what health issues may be scientifically proven concerning genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) in the future, the courts will have no ability to stop the spread of the seeds and the crops they bear.
If you get sick from GMO’s, you will be unable to sue the corporation responsible.
At present, they don’t have to tell you when you are eating GMO’s, and they are not responsible when you get sick from GMO’s.
It is becoming nearly impossible to obtain food that is not GMO contaminated. The option to choose what you eat is disappearing. You will have to eat what they give you; not what you want.
Why are corporations dictating how we should live when they are not even alive? We should should know the truth about what we eat and be able to choose what we eat.
