Congress Passes Loose GMO Labeling Laws


Weight Loss Tip: If you're looking to cut back on fat and oil intake, try marinating your meats without oil. A popular marinade for grilled chicken can be made with three cups of apple juice, two cloves of garlic, and a cup of low-sodium soy sauce. It's a brilliant sweet glaze akin to teriyaki, and low-fat as well!

Congress recently passed a bill requiring electronic labeling of genetically modified food. Is this a win for consumer protection? Alexis Baden-Mayer, political director for the Organic Consumers Association, joins RT America’s Manila Chan and says that nine out of 10 people want to see their food labeled if it is genetically engineered – and that most consumers won’t be able to read these new electronic labels.

  1. GMOs should be labeled, but the real problem is the herbicides, which isn’t unique to GMOs. Herbicides have actual evidence for harm.

  2. What an ignorant woman. “The overwhelming majority of people haven’t come down with anything.” Riiigght. That’s why cancer rates have been rapidly increasing, doubling, tripling, etc., to the point where now it is said that in the U.S., one in two men and one in three women will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in their lifetime. That couldn’t possibly have anything to do with what we are putting into our bodies though.

  3. I wish Americans would be more proactive about things, find out who voted for this and next time around make sure they don’t get elected.
    Start putting people that want change into those senate seats.

  4. It’s refreshing to find a place on the internet that’s open to GMO labeling. Seems like every other place calls you an anti-science nut.

  5. How crazy is it that this is still not covered by mainstream media? Democracy has indeed broken down, it’s up on cinder blocks with the wheels long gone.

  6. GMO’s are incredibly dangerous for our bodies in many ways; one of the ways is that when they are consumed for a few months they have properties that cause men and women to become sterile. If pregnancy does occur the offspring will become 100% sterile. It is extremely important that the people realize why so many men and women are losing the ability to have children. Dr’s. make millions of dollars from the affects of GMO’s on the human body. Do everything possible to stop Monsanto from producing highly dangerous food. The combination of GMO’s and Homosexuality will bring the end of civilization as we know it.

  7. We never had allergies but since we came to america we got some weird ass allergies so I agree with her on that

  8. Honestly I favor labeling it at this point because i’m convinced its safe so I might like to know which is GMO to TRY some of it. They don’t understand that it works both ways and that’s kind of messed up.

  9. I do not have a smart phone, so I don’t even have the ability to scan and see if it is GMO, even if I have the time.

  10. Politics is filled with lies it seems I’m getting off topic but America has never been a democracy it WAS a constitutional republic at its founding
