The Senate voted overwhelmingly — 71 to 27 — against an amendment to the sweeping farm bill, squashing a measure that would not have required labeling of genetically modified organisms, but merely would have let states decide if they wanted to …

It was announced on May 11, 2015 that Mike Pompeo R-KS is moving H.B. 1599 ahead in committee. H.B. 1599 is labeled the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015. This is a bill that will prohibit states from requiring GMO labeling on processed foods that use seeds that have been genetically altered to withstand herbicides or use plants that act as pesticides for organisms eating the plant. The bill is a total misnomer in that the unlabeled GMO food is not proven safe and the labels would not be accurate. The announcement on May 11, 2015 was made by Joseph Mercola MD as a call-to-arms for people to write their Congressmen immediately to stop the progress of H.B. 1159.

Our bodies are the temples of our souls. We have an obligation to take care of them. While the USDA and FDA pretend that GMOs may not be harmful, there is no doubt that Roundup (glyphosate), 2-4-D (Agent Orange) and similar chemicals are carcinogenic and cause damage to the liver, kidneys and bladder. General Mills’ cereals have to be labeled in the UK as being GMO. China, Russia and Japan will not allow shipments of GMO corn and soybeans to be imported.

Monsanto has bought off Congress through SuperPACs and lobbyists, gotten immensely favorable treatment by the Supreme Court of the US, and is now battling the European Union’s labeling of Roundup as “probably cancerous”. In the meantime, the USDA has increased the allowable limits of residual glyphosate on our food. The USDA has previously set the allowable amount of rat poop allowed in commercial grain shipments.
