Unfortunately, it’s clear that the US government is not in a position to make reasonable and responsible decisions related to genetically engineered foods at this point. The fact that the former Monsanto attorney and Vice President,Michael Taylor, is now in charge of US food safety has left many of us scratching our heads.
And serious conflicts of interest even reign supreme within the US Supreme Court! That’s right. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is also a former Monsanto attorney, but refuses to acknowledge any conflict of interest.
GMOs are Almost Everywhere
Many of us have come to the conclusion that our regulatory agencies are lacking and we need to look out for ourselves. It's very difficult to avoid GMOs today. According to the Center for Food Safety the genetic engineering of plants and animals is looming as one of the greatest and most intractable environmental challenges of the 21st Century.
Currently, up to 85% of U.S. corn is genetically engineered (GE), as are 91% of soybeans and 88% of cotton (cottonseed oil is often used in food products). It has been estimated that upwards of 75% of processed foods on supermarket shelves – from soda to soup, crackers to condiments – contain genetically engineered ingredients. -centerforfoodsafety.org/
