The government is going to counter ‘misinformation’ about GMO foods

A campaign for promoting the GMO will be funded by the Food and Drug Administration. A lot of groups from the food and agriculture industry say that there is much misinformation about agricultural biotechnology. Some House Democrats and environmental groups think that in this way the government promotes the GMO industry.

Rep. Nita M. Lowey says that the job of the FDA is to regulate our food safety and not to advertise a business.

The budget for this campaign is $ 3 million and it is still not known how it will look. There was an attempt by the Democrats to redirect the money to medical projects especially pediatric but the Republicans didn’t approve that.

39% of the adults in America think that GMO foods aren’t good for people’s health and 90% of the people in the American Association for Advancement of Science think that GMO foods are healthy to eat.

The agribusiness donated $26 mill. To political campaigns so this is a way how the politicians will pay that back.

Some analysis last year showed that GM seed plantings have more herbicide in them

Another analysis showed that the technology doesn’t increase yields.

The Congress, last year, passed a bill that food companies must put it on their labels if the food contains GMO and it is being worked on those standards.

Patrick Delaney who is the spokesman for the American Soybean Association says that consumers must understand those labels. So the public should be better informed about the GMO.
