Obama approves GMO Crops

by

The Revolution will begin our food supply
Over the past 12 days, the Obama administration has unbelievably chosen to approve two biotech crops, Roundup Ready genetically modified (GMO) alfalfa and Roundup Ready genetically modified (GMO) sugar beets. Obama’s recent approval of them will allow them to be planted as early as this spring, despite widespread acknowledgement that these crops are certain to contaminate both conventional and organic farmers non-GMO crops. Their approval only benefits one company — Monsanto.

These decisions are a devastating blow to our democracy and the basic rights of farmers to choose how they want to grow food on their land and the rights of consumers who increasingly choose organic and sustainably grown food for its positive health and environmental impacts. Click here to join us in telling President Obama that it’s time to stand up to Monsanto and reject these GMO crops today.

    The FDA or Food and Drug Administration is responsible for the approval of GMO or Genetically Modified Organism Food. I don’t see how because the FDA approved one of the largest corporations in the world to grow round up ready alfalfa automatically receives association or ties to the Obama administration. You need to understand how much money, power, and control Monsanto has. They basically control the entire food supply of the United States with Roundup Ready Corn. What is the alternative to say NO? I disprove of GMO technology however I don’t think it’s appropriate to associate the problem with Obama.

    Just one last food for thought! Michelle Obama is responsible for the growth of first organically grown gardens on the White House property to use in their daily consumption. If you are married to someone who completely disproves of GMO technology do you think Obama would be ready to just jump up and down to approve something like this? POWER AND CONTROL = MONSANTO!!!

      Thanks for your comment. While I do see your point, I don’t think Obama is as he appears. I think he is ultimately controlled by multi-national corporations and their bosses. He is not in control but more, a figurehead. He may have personal views on their food supply, but that is symbolism. He won’t, or can’t control Monsanto, they control him.
