The meat industry attacks in the same way, publishing nonsense. Look at all the CD commentators who report that meat is good for you and vegetarians are unhealthy.

Rachel Parent is in excellent company - for example with physicist Vandana Shiva

Global Food, Farming and Environmental Justice Groups to Put Monsanto on Trial for Crimes Against Human Health and the Environment in the International People’s Court in The Hague

Organic Consumers Association, IFOAM, Navdanya, Regeneration International and others form Monsanto Tribunal Foundation in advance of World Food Day 2016

Thank you Rachel and all who are taking up the fight for ethics, accountability, transparency, sustainability and forms of agriculture that put life first rather than obscenely sly, corrupt methodologies and profits.

Hillary Clinton confirmed that the GMO cartel feels MORE threatened by young people than by older people when she admonished attendees at a GMO cartel convention in San Diego in June 2014 to "put a new spin on GMOs to gain their acceptance by young Americans".

Clinton knows she needs young voters supporting her if she is to win in 2016 and will work with the cartel to soften them up any way they can.

A few weeks ago Putin announced:

"We are not only able to feed ourselves taking into account our lands, water resources – Russia is able to become the largest world supplier of healthy, ecologically clean and high-quality food which the Western producers have long lost, especially given the fact that demand for such products in the world market is steadily growing," said Putin, addressing the Russian Parliament

Should genetically engineered babies be labeled?

2015 was the year it became OK to genetically engineer babies

When GEB grow up, will they be labeled hypocrites for trying to get genetically modified foods labeled?

Not sure anyone is spending time and money on this labeling thing. You produce GMO free food, label it as such and whoever is into GMO free can assume all the rest contain GMO and not buy them. Everybody can move on.

Then again, that won't be good enough either. Apparently Chipotle calls its meat products GMO free, but some enterprising lawyer, ready to cash in is suing them, cuz the food that the animals eat is not GMO free. So there you go....

Anyway, most of the food we eat today is not what is was 100 years ago. Thru careful selection and breeding they ere modified. Genetics does the same thing except it does not take generations to do it.

You can carefully breed and apple that does not turn brown in several generations of apple trees, or you can get a good engineer to do it in a few years.

Someone has too much free speech (aka money) and too much power over regulators and it ain't a 14 year old girl.

It is not surprising the North American GMO industry is going after an effective voice for GMO labelling. The corporate bigwigs and their media shills know well from their European counterparts' experience; GMO labeled food rots on store shelves as consumers vote with their money. Though it part of the company line to was ecstatically about the 'magic of the marketplace,' actual informed consumers is something they loath. Thus the obfuscation campaign headlined by scientific whores.


#13

Yes banning the stuff is what we want. Labeling is a step in the right direction. As the word gets out fewer will buy labeled GMO food.


#14

You don't really know what you are talking about. Selection and breeding IS genetics.


#15

Just more corporate bullying, this time of a 14 year old. The agribusiness hireling professor does not make sense. What's GMO labeling got to do with "non-scientific" thinking? It's about the right to know what is added to our food. There are plenty of "real" scientists, not on the GMO payroll, that know the crap is dangerous. GMOs should be labeled, just like any other additive.


#16

I totally agree. I used "genetics" in lieu of "genetic engineering" so as not to create too much anxiety among the readers here.

Why should she be immune from criticism? If she is making a public argument then she should expect criticism and deal with it in a mature way. There was nothing about Folta's replies to her activism, as mentioned in the article, that was in anyway below the belt.
