Monsanto Campaigns to Stop GMO Labeling Initiative

July 5, 2012

5Jul(NATURAL NEWS)  – The usual suspects are mounting a huge disinformation campaign to stop GMO labeling initiative. A leading coalition is StopCostlyFoodLabeling.com, the funding for which comes in part from the Council for Biotechnology Information – whose members include Monsanto, Dow, and other GMO companies.

Peggy Lemaux, an extension specialist in the Department of Environmental Science at UC Berkeley, was recently quoted in a National Public Radio piece as opposing the initiative. She has credentials, but keep in mind that she’s a member of an agricultural science council that includes all the major biotech companies, and was recently the recipient of a financial award provided by Monsanto.
