Pro-GMO DARK Act Passes The House, Headed To The Senate

Poll after poll indicates that Americans want to know what is in their food. Yet, our Congress thinks it has the right to keep people in the dark about what they are eating. Yet another indication that our Congress has completely sold out to corporate giants.

“These survey results show that the people want more information about the foods they purchase and eat,” said Faber.  “These states are by no means alone. A recent national survey showed that 90 percent of Americans favor GMO labeling. Consumers want to make their own food choices, and states have frequently led the way in facilitating consumer choice.”

After all, the only reason that Monsanto-backed lobbying groups are so excited about this bill is because it’s their last hope. They know that they’re losing the ideological battle when it comes to the public’s opposition to GMOs and Monsanto’s cancer-linked herbicides.

Quite frankly, the DARK Act is a last ditch effort by these groups to silence the opposition through use of legislative force.

We’re talking about a bill that was drafted up by the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), and pushed on us by all the usual suspects. All the ones who are afraid of you actually knowing what’s in your food. Because even if you don’t care about the genetic alteration of your food, you most certainly should be concerned as to whether or not it has been doused in Monsanto’s cancer-linked herbicides.

The GMO-loaded processed food industry is scared, and they know they’re losing the battle for the food supply. This new bill is yet another example of the tricks they will use to take away our ability to know what we’re putting in our mouths. I for one will take a stand against this resurrected ‘Monsanto Protection Act’ that could become law unless the Senate defeats it.

As Reuters reports:

“The House of Representatives was set to vote Thursday on a hotly debated measure that would block mandatory labeling of foods made with genetically engineered crops, including pre-empting a state law set to take effect next year in Vermont… House passage would mark a victory for food and agricultural companies that have lobbied for the bill, and a blow to opponents, which include consumer, health and environmental groups and organic food industry players.”

Will you stand against the DARK Act with us?
