FDA Deletes 1 Million Signatures For GMO Labeling Campaign – FDA Slave To Monsanto?


Weight Loss Tip: If you think that you're hungry, wait about fifteen minutes before having a meal. Sometimes a hunger cue can be caused by the need to hydrate your body, or even from boredom. Go for a fifteen minute walk and have a glass of water. If you're still hungry, it's time for some food.

Labeling Campaign – FDA slave to Monsanto?

Americans want the FDA to label Genetically
Engineered Foods
~more info:
While the Food and Drug Administration has
seemingly reached the limit for unbelievable
behavior, the company’s decisions continue
to astound and appall consumers and health
activists alike. In the agency’s latest decision,
undoubtedly amazing thousands of
individuals yet again, the FDA virtually erased
1 million signatures and comments on the
‘Just Label It’ campaign calling for the
labeling of genetically modified foods.
The ‘Just Label It” campaign has gotten more
signatures than any campaign in history for
the labeling of genetically modified foods.
Since October of 2011, the campaign has
received over 900,000 signatures, with 55
politicians joining in on the movement. So
what’s the problem here?
Evidently, the FDA counts the amount of
signatures not by how many people signed,
but how many different individual letters are
brought to it. To the FDA, even tens of
thousands of signatures presented on a
single petition are counted as — you guessed
it — a single comment. This is how, despite
over a million supporters being gathered by
the petition, the FDA concluded a count of
only 394. “This is an election year and there
are more than a million people who say this
is important to them. This is petition has
nothing to do with whether or genetically
modified foods are dangerous. We don’t
label dangerous foods, we take them off the
shelves. This petition is about a the citizens’
right to know what they are eating and
whether or not these foods represent a
novel change.” said Andrew Kimbrell an
attorney for the Center for Food Safety, one
of the partner groups on the Just Label It
campaign.

Signatures for GMO Labeling Campaign
The argument as to whether genetically
modified foods are dangerous is a whole
discussion on its own, but for the FDA to
completely sidestep away from the labeling
of GM foods is completely and utterly
irresponsible. Consumers have every right to
know what they are consuming. Needless to
say, biotechology giant Monsanto is against
GMO labeling, claiming that it would mislead
consumers since GMOs are ‘perfectly safe’.
Of course there is plenty of evidence proving
that GMOs are not completely safe, and how
they affect life in the long-term is
questionable to say the least. Either way,
there is enough controversy surrounding the
issue which is cause for alarm for millions of
people, and Monsanto’s opinion on GMOs
safety is a sorry excuse for not labeling
foods as GM. Is the FDA avoiding such an
issue because so many ties exist between
genetically modified makers like Monsanto
and the agency?
You have the right to know what is in your
food, and what your food IS. Denying that
right, whether it be by the essential deletion
of millions of signatures on a petition, or by
ignoring the voices of thousands of people
on the street, is taking power away from the
people. Genetically Modified Food Labeling

  1. What French study? the one that wasn’t about cancer but instead about the renal system? cause yeah that study wasn’t about cancer. I agree you won’t be able to find a study linking cancer with GMO foods. in fact its hard to find studies about GMO’s at all. of course this has nothing to do with labeling. a lack of information doesn’t mean they are benign it means that their is a lack of information. the legal system surrounding GMOs is worth researching. that is reason enough alone to avoid them.

  2. The CAIR study that claimed that GMO crops gave rats tumors. The study was flawed in a number of ways. Also why do you think there’s a lack of information about GMOs out there? Are you aware of the hundreds and hundreds of peer reviewed articles out there? There is no lack of information, there’s simply a lack of information pointing to your preconceived conclusions.

  3. umm… actually i have a degree in agriculture biology in pest management with an emphasize on insects and i can tell you that their is a distinct lack of information. Many of the studies done in the US have been redone in other countries by creditable institutions with vastly different results. The wonder is why you would trust the government to protect you when the members that are supposed to be part of the oversight have vested interest in Monsanto, Syngenta, That is to say nothing of….

  4. the legal structure surrounding Gene Patenting. Technology isn’t good or bad. GMO technology does indeed hold some merit and research into area is fine. The legal structure however and lack of empirical data are troubling. A great example of GMO success is papaya.

  5. Exactly, without introducing a new variety of papaya that was immune to the virus papaya would freaking be gone from this earth. I wish more people would thoroughly educate themselves regarding GMO’s and their purpose. A good place to start would be to look up golden rice.

  6. With that said, im still very opposed to GMO’s in general. Even if everyone of them was benign the legal structure surrounding them is absurd in the extreme. Monsanto regularly sues farmers for patent infringement. Also they should be labeled not banned.

  7. Why even bother with labeling it? We should ban GMO foods all together like France, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Greece and Luxembourg.

  8. Jeffrey Smith has no scientific credentials whatsoever. Before becoming an activist he was a ball room dance instructor and a yogic flyer in the Maharishi cult. If you don’t know what a yoga flyer is, search you tube for some videos.

  9. Think about this.. if half what they say about GMO is true.. no terrorist attacks can compare to the possible health issues that GMOs may have affect on Americans. This is a terrorist’s dream come true. A silent and deadly killer and it’s all self funded by the FDA and Monsanto.

  10. If they got away with fluoridating our drinking water for the last 60 years, then in their mind, they can do whatever they want in the name of corporate profits. The sky’s the limit. The department heads are making a financial killing bending over backwards to breakdown the barriers inhibiting them from putting our health at risk. We are now subject to chemically and genetically induced evolution.

  11. Absolutely, Monsanto is possibly the biggest criminal in the the world today and they have completely monopolized our system.

  12. FDA also has to be dismantled . It is time for the people to kick ass and take names. We need to kick corporates out of our government and rid ourselves of politicians and judges who are on their payrolls.

  13. FDA is OWNED by the very people who want you to NOT KNOW… they call it a revolving door for major companies selling GMOs, so why would FDA want to inform the public?

  14. I WENT TO WENT IN EVERY THING WE FOOD CLOTHES WATER SHOES THE CHAP ASS SHOES HURT MY FEET WITH THE HELL ARE THEY MAKING THEM OUT OF THERE GARBAGE WAST OF TIME MONEY AND EFFERTS TO PUT ON THE MARKIT STOP MAKING FOOD CHAP AND SELL ORGAINC FOOD IN STED OF THIS DIRTY FOOD FULL OF PISTASIDES AND JUNK WE DON’T EAT OR EVEN THE BUGS. CLEAN WATER PLASES.

  15. Keep it going! Our sick kids will own monsanto in the future and that’s a definitive fact! Just like,asbestosis,green paint,,radium,,big tobacco etc. This may even give us the power to overthrow washington jail the entire hill and start anew with the country that was invented to protect the ppl. From money making tax sucking elite without 1drop of blood,just by treason,poisioning,murder alone

  17. Less people means more organic food. More people means more fake manmade lab food. End the exponential human population growth. Oh I forgot, Monsanto already is.
