The “experts” have spoken, and here’s what they have to say: You’re just too stupid to handle a label on your food that says “this product contains genetically engineered ingredients.”
Members (see the list here) of the subcommittee on Horticulture, Research, Biotechnology, and Foreign Agriculture, along with four of their hand-picked puppets (um, experts), met last week to pat themselves on the back for the great job GMO crops and foods are doing of feeding the world, providing better nutrition and slashing the use of pesticides.
Yep, they’re all doing a heckuva job. Except that they aren’t.
But the best part of their meeting was the part where they insulted you and every other educated consumer who believes that, at the very least, you should have the right to know if your food contains GMOs.
Here’s what one of the experts—Dr. David Just, Co-Director, Cornell Center for Behavioral Economics in Child Nutrition Programs”—said at last week’s meeting:
It is ignorance of the product, and it’s a general skepticism of anything they eat that is too processed or treated in some way that they don’t quite understand.
Oh, we understand, alright. Dr. Just works for Cornell, which is on Monsanto’s payroll. Just like half the lawmakers in Washington who rode there on Monsanto’s dime.
