(NaturalNews) What is it about a requirement to label foods containing genetically modified ingredients that so scares the food industry that they would do anything to prevent that from happening? Why are Big Agriculture and biotech giants like Monsanto so hell-bent on keeping you in the dark about what’s in the food they grow for you?
Whatever the reason, it must be a bombshell – or extremely diabolical – because these interested parties are certainly sparing no expense to keep the truth from the public.
As reported by the Environmental Working Group, a non-partisan environmental defense organization based in Washington, D.C., big food and associated interests spent an astounding $101.4 million last year lobbying lawmakers to oppose GMO labeling efforts.
