Based on consumer fears in many countries, some large U.S. companies, including Kellogg, Pepsi, Kraft, Coke and Heinz, are now dropping their GMO foods from their European products. Rather than just drop them from all products in general, here in the U.S. we will still be eating GMOs if we chose to eat their products. Over 60 countries ban GMOs from their food source, but here in the U.S. we continue to be served these harmful creations regularly. If they can make healthier foods for other countries, why not us?
According to Larry Bohlen, a Safer-Foods Safer-Farms campaign director, 22 different European nations have been putting the heat on GMO producing companies like Monsanto, Dow and BASF. He says, “If companies are feeling the heat from 22 European nations, wait until they start hearing from 50 American states.” The question is, will the people of the U.S. start standing up and being heard? These big corporations have been pouring billions of dollars into fighting the labeling of foods which contain GMOs. If GMOs are not harmful, then why do they want to keep it a secret from the consumer?
PepsiCo recently agreed to settle out of court for $9 million over a class action lawsuit that claimed ‘natural and non-GMO‘
on their bottles of Naked which was misleading since they are made with GMO ingredients, as well as synthetic and ‘unnatural’ items. Naked is anything but ‘natural’. It is labeled as ‘100% juice’ smoothie but actually contains up to ll different chemicals.
America is facing a lot of health challenges and I believe that GMO products have a lot to do with it. A new study shows that pigs that ate GMO crops developed severe inflammation of the stomach and intestines and had abnormal uterus growth. The reason this is so important is because pigs have a similar digestive system as people. Could it be that the digestive problems people are having are due to eating GMO products?
I would love to see GMOs outlawed in the U.S., but I doubt that will happen any time soon. However, I think as consumers we should have the freedom to choose products based on labeling and products that contain GMOs should be labeled as such.
