There is a war raging against your right to know what you and your children are eating, how it was altered genetically, and how to avoid it.

The federal government is attempting to stop states and localities from regulating these experimental foods, which are released to the public without any long term or independent testing at all. They are tested by the corporations and voluntarily reported to the government under the fraudulent assumption that they are safe, because it’s up to the rest of us to prove their science experiments are unsafe. This Alice in Wonderland system of high risk corporate coddling is protected by the corrupt congress, which has gone out of its way to bring us toward a state of fascism, on this and on other crucial issues (such as the surveillance state).

GMO Labeling Laws Ditched: The Passage of the DARK Act Shows the Arrogance of US Politicians

In particular, the DARK Act – if passed by the Senate and signed into law by Obama – will:

  • Preempt State and local laws regarding the production and sale of GMO crops, not just the labeling of GMO foods;

  • Eliminate “GMO-Free” zones;

  • Unfairly burden traditional farmers and food producers to label their food as “GMO-free,” requiring certification from the pro-GMO USDA;

  • Further muddy the food definition of “Natural,” allowing companies to make “natural” claims on packaging even if the food contains GMOs; and

  • Allow dairy products from animals fed bioengineered foods and foods developed using bioengineered processing aids or enzymes to still be labeled as non-bioengineered.
