GMOs, which are regarded by many as a marvel of modern science and technology, are an effective human killer as well. But the U.S. government seems to be relentless in its effort to push GMO foods into the market. Natural News reports that the U.S. president may be termed as the biggest lobbyist for GMO companies like Monsanto. Major agriculture, food and drug authorities are now headed by people who were once tied to GMO companies in one way or another. To be honest, the government is now in an all out war in favor of GMOs. Know more at: http://www.naturalnews.com/037310_barack_obama_monsanto_lobbyist.html.
The U.S. government’s affinity towards GMOs does not end here. In fact, it is now reported that the FDA, the authority with absolute power on food and drug related issues in the U.S. has hired a former lawyer of Monsanto as one of its key advisors. Michael Taylor, who is quite well known for his pro-GMO stand is now said to have been hired by the FDA to advise Margaret Hamburg, the commissioner for food and drugs. Taylor has always been an outright critic of the 1958 Delaney Clause that prohibited the use of carcinogen chemicals on food materials. He has also maintained close ties with GMO companies like Monsanto and even served as its vice president for public policy for three years.

But the war regarding GMOs is not one-sided. Thanks to public awareness against GMOs, people are now protesting against their use. Natural News reports that the protest against GMOs has been gone to a higher level with a girl in California starting a petition against GMOs. It is reported that Alicia Serratos has initiated a campaign in order to prevent the making of Girl Scout cookies with GMO ingredients. The campaign is gaining pace rapidly.
