This is why people need to be concerned about the plight of small farms and wholesome foods. DuPont donates $4.6 million to defeat labeling of GMO foods. Can you say, “Vested interest?” When we talk of GMO, we usually think of Monsanto, but DuPont is another major world player in the GMO game.
Yet the simple fact is people have a right to know what they are eating so they can make informed choices. Isn’t it interesting that organic food has to be labeled, but food that has been drenched in toxic herbicides and pesticides doesn’t? Isn’t it telling that GMO makers feel in particular their foods should not be pointed out to an informed public?
From the article: “The measure is also the most expensive ballot measure in state history—with $22.9 million being raised by both sides—but the bulk of that sum has come from corporations fighting to defeat the initiative. Monsanto, the Missouri-based seed developer, has also donated a reported $4 million to try and defeat Measure 92.”
