President Obama Signs Bill that Forever Exempts Big Food from Placing GMO Labels on Food Packages

by Julie Wilson, Natural News:

While Americans were bustling about in preparation for their weekend, President Barack Obama quietly signed a bill late Friday afternoon that will likely forever keep people in the dark about the presence of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in their food.

Drafted by Senate Agriculture Chairman Pat Roberts, R-Kan., and ranking Democrat Debbie Stabenow of Michigan, the legislation gives food producers the option to disclose GMO ingredients through digital codes, instead of the mandatory, on-package labels called for by 90 percent of citizens.

Consumers wishing to learn about GMO ingredients will have to use smart phones to scan a barcode on food packages that reads: “Scan here for more food information.” The percentage of GMOs in a food product that requires QR code labeling will be decided by the future Secretary of Agriculture.

Arguably, the most devastating component of the faux GMO-labeling law is that it effectively overrides existing (and genuine) labeling laws in various states such as in Vermont, Maine and Connecticut.

The bill indefinitely bars Americans from their right to vote at the state level in the future for any sort of mandatory GMO-labeling. Under the law, it’s possible that genetically engineered salmon will not be labeled as such in Alaska.

More than a decade ago, the state became the first in the nation to pass a GMO-labeling law, requiring genetically engineered fish be “conspicuously labeled to identify the fish or fish product as a genetically modified fish or fish product,” applying to both packaged and unpackaged products.

    So it’s up to us, the CONSUMERS (the guys who spend the money), to leave EVERY PRODUCT on the shelf if it’s not labeling itself as 100% FREE from GMO’s.

    Trust NOTHING that is not clearly labeled. We also can write to the retail stores & to the “manufacturers” that “we the people” will NOT buy your product if we even suspect that it has GMO’s or toxic chemicals (such as Roundup) in it.

    We were successful against BGH that was in the milk products, and we can be successful again.

    I’m grateful to Mike Adams (at http://www.NaturalNews.com) who stays on top of this kind of information as well as purchasing, training and using his own (expensive) lab-testing equipment to analyze what’s in the things he tests.

    Testing foods for radioactive contaminants is not so easy either. We’d need something like a scintillator chamber etc, to insert food into the metering chamber for a specified amount of time to get the readings, etc.

    Just holding a geiger counter up to the product is not going to detect the ALPHA particles (of which PLUTONIUM only gives off Alpha particles.)

    Fukushima reactor was this month, diagnosed to still have MOLTEN (over 100 tons) of FLOWING, soft, white hot nuclear LAVA either inside or UNDER the reactor. There is NO technology on this planet to fix radiation in any reactor on the planet.

    Fukushima may have already killed the Pacific ocean for millions of years, but it’s only appears to be alive because the entire ocean is on DEATH ROW waiting for the poison to do its work.
