With a sad twist of irony, corporate and government elite dine on safe,
organic food while the masses, those very people who are supposedly
represented and protected by their governments, are poisoned by hidden
genetically modified organisms, pesticides
and dangerous contaminants. The presidential family demands organic
food in their kitchen, yet behind closed doors, shake hands with the
biotech industry. China's top brass is fed by an exclusive, gated
organic garden while the rest of the population consumes GM food,
steroid contaminated meat and dairy laced with melamine. Even Monsanto's
own employee's command non-genetically modified food in their canteen.
Access to clean, organic and healthy food is not a given right anymore
-- it has become a political battleground with the average citizen
suffering the loss.
White House double-take
Lady Michelle Obama digs up the White House lawn to plant an organic
garden, her husband promotes a GMO agenda within his administration.
"You know, in my household, over the last year we have just shifted to
organic," she said in a New Yorker
interview during Barack
Obama's 2008 presidential campaign. Organic produce from the garden
feeds the Obama family and visiting dignitaries alike. Seems okay so
far. But then take a look at Obama's laundry-list of presidential
appointed positions with biotech ties: USDA head Roger Beachy, a former
director at Monsanto, FDA food safety czar Michael Taylor, one-time vice
president for public policy at Monsanto
Commissioner of the USDA Tom Vilsack who created the Governors'
Biotechnology Partnership. Under President Obama, 10 new GM crops have
been approved for 'safe consumption.'
