President Trump Signs an Executive Order To Significantly Reduce Regulations on GMO Plants & Animals
Have you ever thought about what's really in the food we eat? How does the food industry provide so much, so quick, on immediate demand?!
Well, there's a lot that goes into getting our foods out to the supermarkets. But there is an even more extensive process in actually growing the food and preparing it for mass production.
Have you ever thought about what are we feeding our children?!!
If you're a parent, I'm sure you have. But in case you haven't, I'd like to share something that might get you to think about it more.
THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL POST, NOR IS IT MEANT FOR YOU TO PICK A SIDE. THE PURPOSE OF THIS ARTICLE IS TO ENLIGHTEN OTHERS ABOUT THE REALITY OF THE FOOD INDUSTRY.
President Trump recently signed an executive order (EO) that commands federal agencies to scale back on the regulations of genetically modified organisms, better known as GMOs. This executive order commands agencies to exempt numerous GMOs from regulations, allowing an increasing number of GMO crops and animals to not be reviewed scientifically by any federal agencies. This order is executed about one week after the U.S. Department of Agriculture proposed to weaken the regulation of GMO's that fall under its administration.
This shows how President Trump actually supports companies that cultivate the production of GMO products.
The true intention of this EO is to facilitate even more the distribution of genetically engineered products. It requires government agencies to join a "domestic engagement" (Sec. 7) campaign that further misleads & confuses the public about the true essence of GMOs. This executive order fails to protect farmers, rural communities and the environment. It also includes an "International Outreach" ( Sec. 8), which forces other countries to accept our GMO products, even if they do not agree.
It is clear that Trump's administration & himself care nothing about farmers and the cultivation of organic products. Not to say, he is careless about his people and the future of this country, which is our children!
As Bill Freese (science and policy analyst at the Center for Food Safety) said, "If the administration cared about farmers, it would take steps to protect them from the GMO-driven herbicide drift that is devastating their crops, or actually investigate the latest genetically engineered wheat contamination episode."
The legal director at the Center for Food Safety (CFS) also commented that "CFS will fight this Trump initiative with all the means at our disposal. We will counter Trump's propaganda efforts with public education on the pesticide-promoting effects of GMOs, the environmental hazards of genetically engineered salmon, and the administration's junk science approach to regulation. CFS will continue to educate the public about the huge losses suffered by farmers whose crops, through no fault of their own, become contaminated with experimental GMOs that USDA refuses to properly confine."
The Center for Food Safety is trying to stop this nonsense by already taking this to court. Let's just hope they succeed!
Stay informed my friends!
