ImageSo is this what we (our health) have become? …the unfortunate but unavoidable “collateral damage” as the natural consequence of the financial (banking & insurance)-military-industrial (food manufacturing, drug manufacturing & healthcare delivery machine) complex continues to devour the landscape to satisfy its unrelenting appetite for the holy grail of corporate America…profit!  

One more time…on May 8, Vermont passed the first no-strings-attached GMO labeling law. The law will require food manufacturers to label genetically engineered (GE) foods sold in Vermont, and prohibits them from labeling foods with GE ingredients as “natural” or “all natural.” 

The following day, the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) confirmed it will sue the state to get the law overturned…oh my, what a surprise!The GMA, whose 300-plus members include Monsanto and Dow, Coca-Cola and General Mills, is pushing a bill in Congress that would preempt all states from passing GMO labeling laws.4 [Editor’s note: The “Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2014,”5 dubbed “DARK” (Denying Americans the right to know) Act.]

Apparently, this is the second time in mere months that the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) is suing a state for the right to keep consumers in the dark. So far, between 2012 and 2014, the GMA have successfully blocked GMO labeling legislation in over 30 states, at a price tag of more than $100 million, paid for by its members.

The Mercola website is advocating “boycott” of the giant corporate brands that have acquired & now own certain organic brands. Presents an interesting “Catch-22” for you & me at one level…if we want to continue to consume healthy “organic” (and are not aware of who owns these brands) inadvertently we end up buying from the “enemy” thereby continuing to contribute to their growth, expansion…see where this is going?

The real value of Dr. Mercola’s work – thank you Dr. Mercola – is for helping us stay better informed…so that we may make more healthy/intelligent choices for our self & our loved ones in a rapidly changing world.
