Monsanto running the Food and Drug Administration
In a world full of megalomaniac corporations, Monsanto stands head and shoulders above the rest. Monsanto is poisoning the world’s food supply with their genetically modified Frankenfoods. And the company doesn’t even want the public to know whether or not they’re buying Frankenfood (officially known as genetically modified organisms, GMO).
Monsanto’s cutthroat business practices have driven thousands of small farmers to suicide (mostly in India). The list goes on and on.
And now, in the most grotesque example EVER of hiring the fox to guard the henhouse, President Obama has appointed a former Monsanto executive to be the senior advisor to the FDA Commissioner. Michael Taylor was a vice president — and after that a lobbyist — for Monsanto. His resumé includes pushing Monsanto’s GM bovine growth hormone (rBGH) onto the public. Monsanto not only wanted the public to be kept in the dark about whether the milk they purchased contained rBGH. Monsanto also threatened legal action against any milk company that advertised that their milk DIDN’T contain rBGH.
And now this murderer is in charge of protecting our food and drug safety?!?!?!
If you would like President Obama to appoint somebody NOT connected with Monsanto to be in charge of our food and drug safety, please sign this petition.
