Big Agribusiness Opposes GMO Labeling Requirements

May 25th, 2012

Quoth Cathleen Enright, executive VP at the “Biotechnology Industry Organization”, a mouthpiece for dangerous chemical manufacturers like DuPont and Monsanto, who blessed the world with such known poisons as Agent Orange:

These folks [those who want more labeling requirements] are trying to use politics to do what they can’t accomplish at the supermarket, which is increase market share.

You disingenuous bitch:

Michael Talyor, former Monsanto lawyer & lobbyist, now FDA Deputy Commissioner for Foods

What was that about using politics where you can’t win in the marketplace?

To suggest that “farmers” are upset about a grassroots effort for more labeling requirements for genetically modified foods is simply a gross misrepresentation. Not “farmers”, rather well-connected big businesses and factory “famrs” are upset about this, because their MO is always to use legislation to squash their smaller competitors.
