Food Truth Freedom

Your food, where it comes from & what's in it

Bill Maher: “Corporations Own This Country.”

In the following video, Bill Maher pegs it about Monsanto and corporate America:

As Maher points out, 70% of our food comes from GMO crops.  Only 5% in Europe comes from GMO foods.  China, of all places, which has sold tainted baby food, pet food that kills, has a far different stance on GMOs than the U.S. does.

Monsanto, on the sly, has gotten a rider inserted into the 2013 Agriculture Appropriations Bill  (H.R. 5973)  which gives the biotech industry more power to override provisions in GMO approvals.  TELL CONGRESS we cannot allow Monsanto and the biotech industry to continue to:

  • Grow food which is sprayed with chemicals that poisons our world with carcinogenic ingredients, which are known to cause fetal abnormalities, disrupt endocrine systems in humans, kill beneficial insects and damage the ecosystem worldwide.
  • Continue to threaten farmers
  • Violates the right OF farmers to grow the crops of their choice
  • Give Monsanto & the biotech industry sweeping powers to stop any legislation against them.

Michael Taylor’s appointment to the FDA was a travesty!  President Obama made one of the worst decisions of his presidency when Taylor was made food czar!  His ties TO Monsanto should have excluded him from being appointed because of conflict of interest.
