See on Scoop.itMonsanto Sucks

 

May 2, 2014 – CHICAGO (Reuters) –

New efforts to force labeling of foods made with genetically modified crops, including a bill introduced by U.S. lawmakers Wednesday, have struck a nerve with biotech crop developers who say they are rushing to roll out a broad strategy to “combat” consumer concerns about their products.

Executives from Monsanto Co., DuPont, and Dow Chemical, among the world’s largest developers of biotech crops and the chemicals used to help produce them, told Reuters this week they are putting together a campaign aimed at turning the tide on what they acknowledge is a growing public sentiment against genetically modified organisms (GMOs) used as ingredients in the nation’s food supply… http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/04/25/us-usa-gmo-labeling-idUSBRE93O18S20130425

 

In 2010, 85 percent of all corn and 92 percent of soy planted in the U.S. contained Monsanto’s patented genetically modified traits, without your knowledge

                                   ————————–

                                         BE ALERT

++WATCH for a massive, orchestrated global tsunami by the biotech chemical industry (through 3rd parties spokespeople) to convince you that they are serving both you and the planet not their trillion dollar global monopoly of our food and seed requiring lashings of pesticides and chemicals.  It will come from all corners, such as this: Such As This from Bioscience Resource Project http://ow.ly/kJwDU

SCIENCE MEDIA CENTRE INVENTS MORE GM “GOOD NEWS” STORIES http://www.gmfreecymru.org/news/Press_Notice1May2013.html
Words/Phrases such as “GMOs Will Feed the World” “Sustainable” “Eco or Environmentally friendly” and somehow that pesticides/and chemicals are used less on GMOs — all of which are misleading with adverse impact our biodiversity, ecosystems and humand/environmental health.

This will be a huge multi-media advertising and public relations slick, spin and clever campaign.  Question who is behind the article.  Question any funding behind the author of the articles by the biotech industry that has it’s fingers in so many areas of corporate business (including Big Pharma, Big Ag, Big Food, Big Oil) Tens of Millions of dollars will be behind this campaign to counter the awakening of the general public and to protect their trillion, firmly entrenched trillion dollar global business model monopoly. Stay Alert.
