GMO Labeling 2

Advertisements

My last post was written from a state of disbelief about the GMO rider that is being referred to as the “Monsanto Protection Act”.  Now that the shock has lifted and the sad temporary reality has set in, I found this statement from Senator Mikulski’s office.  Senator Barbara Mikulski, Chairwoman of the Senate Appropriations Committee has a record of protecting the American public.  This new law obviously does not.  I do not mean to single out Senator Mikulski as she was not the only voter in the Senate or the House and President Obama signed it into law after the voting was complete.  I address this to all politicians.

I understand the compromises politicians must make once they enter into what is now the corporate dictatorship rather than what is believed to be a democracy.  Was that really the only option available to avoid a government shutdown?  I do understand the fears and pressures we are all under in these trying times.

The good news, however, is that the bill is only in effect for six months and some politicians are saying they will not let this pass into law again.  I pray they stick to their word.  Hopefully biotech companies cannot do any more damage during the next six months.

May God inspire all politicians and appointees to start thinking and acting for the wellbeing of all the people who put them in office and have some backbone rather than bend to the will of the corporations who fund them before, during or after political office.  How ironic it is that corporations are funded by the same people who elect politicians.  Perhaps this will wake up the nation.  One can only hope and trust in God to help turn the tide back to democracy and a nation of people who take an active role in their own health rather than assume ADHD is a disorder and a nursing home is the inevitable end of the road.

I must also admit that I am not perfect either as I write this article.  Today I ate a bagel which probably contained things that were unhealthy.  Since they were sold freshly-baked by my local grocery store and GMO’s are not labeled yet, it is hard for me to know for sure what was truly in them.  We all do the best we think we can with the money, time and awareness with which we have to work.

When the food supply becomes pure again and animals are treated humanely and not drugged, food and health will hopefully no longer be a political bargaining chip.  Now that’s a prayer!

As in my last post, I would like to share some very informative articles I have come across which I also posted on Facebook.  It appears that it took a while for mainstream media to speak up about this issue, but they are covering it now.

Please be sure to connect on my Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/ADHDchildren since I update that more than this blog.

I will list the links below to the articles I mentioned in case you would like to read them.

To the health of the nation!

I’ve been searching the web and CNN and FOX to see if they have this story also, and I found nothing recent.  Other than MSN, I can only find information on other sites that promote health and business news.  At first I was angry that this could have happened.  Now I believe I may be in a state of disbelief or shock.  Did this really pass into law?

If this is really true, this puts GMO producers into the same category as drug companies who make vaccines in that they now cannot be sued for any damages caused by their products.  In the case of vaccines, a pseudo court was created called “Vaccine Court” which is presided over by an attorney.  IF parents can prove their child was damaged by a vaccine, any settlements they are awarded are paid by taxpayers – not drug companies.  It would appear biotech food producers may have been awarded that same protection in addition to many others in the provisions of this bill.

The FDA and the politicians elected by the American people have shown us all where their loyalties reside – if this is in fact true.

Below are links to a few articles about the “Monsanto Protection Act.”   This bold-faced shocking maneuver, if it’s true, has very interesting timing on the part of our government a/k/a the corporate dictatorship given that citizens around the country have been working to get the labeling of GMO’s on the ballot in their states since it failed by a small margin in California in November 2012.

Do you smell foul play?

GMO’s are labeled in over 40 countries around the world.  The American consumer is the most powerful lobby group in the world.  When Americans are able to read that the food they feed their children contain GMO’s, that market would collapse quickly.  Consumers can stop buying the products once they are labeled, but this new “Act” means that federal courts cannot stop these companies from turning 100% of our food supply into GMO’s.  Here is a link to a PDF of world-wide GMO labeling laws.  http://www.centerforfoodsafety.org/ge-map/

I consider this “Act” – if it is true, a violation of our human right to have a say in our own health and know what we put in our bodies and feed children, pets and the fish and animals we consume.  Since God created the original seeds which biotech companies cannot patent, I feel confident that while corporations may have won round one, God is in charge of the next round and has a better plan brewing to make things right for the health and wellbeing of this country.  We must stop being sheep and keep the faith.  I know I will do both.
