GMO Facts and FICTION...What Is True, And What Is Not- So When You Vote On GMO Labeling You Can Make An Informed Decision
This is a quick recap for anyone who has been sent a pamphlet for the “No on I 522” AND the other states…as GMO labeling votes in many states are coming…
No On I522 is sending out Pamphlets with misinformation…so I'm trying to get the word out.
1st LIE ON NO ON I 522- (To LABEL GMOS) "It would force farmers to implement costly new labels"
I KNOW as an old territory manager myself over grocery stores a few years back that ALL PACKAGING BY ANY COMPANY IS CHANGED AS OFTEN AS WE CHANGE OUR CLOTHES- they do it ALL THE TIME...it is NORMAL. I used to stick the tags up for them ALL THE TIME.
The only thing they would be doing is using a little ink or a sticker. It is NOT going to cost you more for food
2nd LIE- ENFORCING I 522 WOULD REQUIRE A WHOLE NEW STATE GOVT. BUREAUCRACY:
I CALLED THE YES ON 522 OFFICE AND ASKED THEM ABOUT THIS- THE ANSWER? IT WILL BE ADMINISTERED BY THE SAME AGENCY THAT CURRENTLY ADMINISTERS FOOD LABELS.
3RD LIE: COMMON GROCERY ITEMS WOULD HAVE TO BE RELABELED OR REMADE WITH HIGHER PRICED INGREDIENTS:
THEY ALREADY MAKE THEM THAT WAY FOR OVERSEAS CONSUMERS AT NO HIGHER COST! EVEN PAUL MCCARTNEY SAID THAT THE PRICE DIDN'T SKYROCKET LABELING GMOS...it stayed the same.
4th LIE: The Campaign promoting I522 is funded by millions of $ from out of state corporations:
ACTUALLY...if you want to Call Organic Valley, Amy’s, Nature Valley and such Corporation’s...they are trying to de- personalize these HONEST makers of food who jump through hoops because there are so many govt. regulations to be organic that it costs THEM a lot of money to keep you informed...
Another interesting fact...the "source" Washington state Research Control" on the pamphlet we have all been sent here in Washington state is actually a group Monsanto (GMO) paid for "research"
And Theeeeeeeeeeeere you have it.
And I can’t help but add this womans story…This woman had a very sick child…UNTIL she changed to ORGANIC. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOFy0wEN6RY
And just for a balanced view…here is a good link about pros and cons of GMOS- The cons start at page 7 A very informative read. http://www.academia.edu/542384/A_Review_on_Impacts_of_Genetically_Modified_Food_on_Human_Health
