GMO Foods and the separation of powers...

Well what do you think of this??

excerpt:

"...at the same time, government agencies like the FDA go to great lengths to cover up the potential health damage from genetically modified foods, and to keep the consumer in the dark about what they're really eating.  Remember, genetically engineered foods have been linked toobesity, cancer, liver failure, infertility and all sorts of other diseases (brief, must-watch videoshere and here).
Both destructive trends are about to get a lot worse within the next week " unless we stand up and say "NO!"
Specifically, a law has been snuck into the Agriculture Appropriations bill -- which will be approved by March 27th -- which would destroy the separation of powers by stripping courts of the power to challenge genetically modified foods.

How?
The "Monsanto Rider" (section 735) uses "farmer-friendly" happy talk, but is an iron-fisted ploy to allow GMO crops to be planted even if a court has ruled that planting them is illegal.
If the United States Department of Agriculture -- which suffered "regulatory capture" by the big food companies decades ago -- approves a genetically modified food without any testing, a court can enjoin (i.e. halt) production of that food until testing occurs.
Yet the Monsanto Rider would strip the courts of power, and would allow GMO crops to be planted and put in our food " no matter what a judge has ruled..."

  3. If you want to know about what are genetically modified foods are, Genetically engineered foods have had foreign genes (genes from other plants or animals) inserted into their genetic codes.Genetic engineering can be done with plants, animals, or microorganisms. Historically, farmers bred plants and animals for thousands of years to produce the desired traits. For example, they produced dogs ranging from poodles to Great Danes, and roses from sweet-smelling miniatures to today's long-lasting, but scent-free reds. May be you are find a clear concept about what are genetically modified foods are ....
