Hillary Clinton gears up to enter the 2016 presidential race as
announced today by her beyond viral Twitter post, we are reminded of
her 2014 public appearance - in which she announced public
of Monsanto's GMO seeds and chemicals.
Chemicals like Roundup which was
recently confirmed by the WHO to be
In the 65-minute keynote appearance at the Biotechnology Industry
Organization (BIO) convention in San Diego (above video), Clinton conversed with
Jim Greenwood, BIO president, on a wide range of topics including GMOs.
"I stand in favor of using seeds and
products that have a proven track recordů There is a big gap
between what the facts are, and what the perceptions are."
Clinton also remarked that the
of GMOs should be better explained in order to counteract
the massive grassroots tide against the lab-created crops, saying
that "Frankensteinish" depictions should be met with a stronger,
more positive spin from GMO companies.
And the reality is that Monsanto now only has 'spin' left. Hundreds
of scientists have warned the world about the effects of biotech's
creations, but perhaps Clinton hasn't heard of those studies.
Though I'm sure she heard of the World Health Organization's most
recent assessment on glyphosate, a chemical heavily used on
genetically modified foods.
The WHO recently labeled this chemical
as 'probably carcinogenic,' which has caused a huge wave of upset
with Monsanto. The news also gives increased urgency to reconsider
the use of GMO crops which have been made specifically to tolerate
copious amounts of pesticides.
Many companies, including Monsanto, have already been stepping up
the PR efforts, launching sites like GMO Answers in an attempt to
change the narrative. They had tried to bamboozle Europe with PR
deception campaigns, but largely failed, and now have turned their
sights on other countries like the U.S.
Most recently, it was revealed that biotechnology giant Monsanto
actually has an entire department within the corporation with the
simple task of 'discrediting' and 'debunking' scientists who speak
out against GMOs.
Do we really want someone in office that will be helping to
fast-track the release of GMO foods?
Since the majority of Americans
don't know much about GMOs, the race to inform the public of
the true nature of GMOs has just sped up.
