Health: Does our Government See us as We See Ourselves?
Posted Jul 21 2014 8:24pm
Do you consider yourself ignorant? Granted, none of us knows all there is to know about everything. However, how do you see yourself? Do you see yourself as someone who is at least intelligent enough to be able to research an issue and educate yourself enough about it to make a well-thought out decision? I truly hope you do because that’s how I see you and me! It may (or may not!) surprise you to read here what our government actually thinks about us. Here’s a very clear statement from the article that summarizes their opinion of the American people as a whole:
“People who oppose GMOs or want them labeled so that consumers can know what they’re eating are alarmists who thrive on fear and ignorance, the panel agreed. Labeling GMO foods would only stoke those fears, and harm a beneficial thing, so it should not be allowed, the lawmakers and witnesses agreed.”
You can read the entire article with specific quotes from some of our representatives so I won’t beat a dead horse. However, I hope you agree with me that we have a right to know what is in our foods and then to make our own decisions as to what we will purchase and eat and what we deem to be unhealthy or dangerous to our own health.
Do you agree or disagree with the opinions of some of our government representatives in this article?
