The danger is indisputable. Independent scientific studies exposed the hazards long ago – suppressed by Washington and US media, supporting corporate profits over human health.
GHW Bush’s 1992 Executive Order falsely called GMOs “substantially equivalent” to ordinary seeds and crops, saying no government regulation is necessary.
The FDA and other federal agencies are run by and operate as corporate front groups. Food and drug officials notoriously approve unsafe products, suppressing scientific evidence proving it.
In 1992, the FDA lied claiming GMOs are safe to eat, no safety studies required. Along with independent studies proving otherwise, internal memos made public from FOIA lawsuits revealed White House political appointees were ordered to promote these foods.
Monsanto vice president/Deputy FDA commissioner Michael Taylor established the policy – despite FDA scientists warning of potential health hazardous from consuming GMOs. Claiming otherwise constitutes massive consumer fraud and coverup.
Genetic engineering transfers genes across natural species barriers, causing untested for safety mutations in the DNA of GMOs.
