Although this video is a couple of years old, I’m glad I came across it. The countless connections between Monsanto and government agencies like the FDA are – if you’re not aware of them – important things to consider. There are a number of examples of Monsanto employees swapping positions to take roles within the FDA and vice versa, and such behaviour is one (of many) examples of our hidden social and political reality. We perceive ourselves to live in a democratic society, but in reality we live within a  “corporatocracy.” If we lived in a democracy, the demand for GMO labelling would have been heard and action taken; there wouldn’t be such resistance from the government to be transparent about what people are buying and putting into their bodies. In fact, it seems likely that if we did actually live in a democracy, GMOs wouldn’t even exist. There is a reason why they are banned, or have severe restrictions on them, in multiple countries around the world.

A 2013 New York Times poll determined that 93% of Americans want a label, they want to know what is in their food.

This is exactly why citizens in the United States have had such a difficult time in their quest to at least see labels on Genetically Modified (GM) foods and Organisms (GMO).

Thanks to Abbey Martin at RT news for creating this video (and the many more that she does).

More Information

The study mentioned at the start of the video can be viewed here. It has been republished and updated  in the journal Environmental Sciences Europe (among others). You can find out more details about that study below, as we wrote about it a few months ago:

I’d also like to mention – since this video is about the politics of GMOs – that  there are Wikileaks cables regarding GMOs. Who would ever imagine that information about produce would need to kept classified and secret? Who could have predicted the politicization of farming crops? Thirty years ago the idea would have been laughable. These cables reveal that the United States planned to “retaliate and cause pain” to countries who were refusing to accept GMOs.

“The US Department of State is selling seeds instead of democracy. This report provides a chilling snapshot of how a handful of giant biotechnology companies are unduly influencing US foreign policy and undermining our diplomatic efforts to promote security, international development and transparency worldwide. This report is a call to action for Americans because public policy should not be for sale to the highest bidder.” – Wenonah Hauter, Food & Water Watch Executive (source)

You can read more about that as well as view some of these Cables HERE.

Please keep in mind that there are large amounts of research – from independent to peer reviewed sources – that clearly show GMOs should not be marketed as completely safe for human consumption (the study linked earlier in the article is one out of many great examples), or approved for sale to humans whatsoever. The pesticides that go with them have also shown to be very detrimental to human health and the environment.
