Californians will eat any shit, But care so much their poor corporates, than their own bodies.
Guests: Attorney Joseph E. Sandler
Subject: They are spending over $40 million to convince Californians to deny themselves the right to know about genetically-modified organisms in their food. This leads one to ask… Why should consumers not know about GMOs in their food?
Topics include why some products would be legally exempt from labelling; how much legal labels would add to the costs of foods; and whether everyone will be able to sue food companies over their labelling.
$40 million ad again
Monsanto, Du Pond, Dow, Cygenta, Pepsi, Coke, Nestle, Con .., Hershey etc. Why these big companies are against the Californian’s right to know about what inside their food.
Under Prop 37 any company disputing its label
GMO cannot be called natural
What they are afraid of?

Guests: Liana Hoodes of the National Organic Coalition & Laura Batcha of the Organic Trade Association

Topics include the fundamental positions held by GMO and organic agricultures; what AC21 says each side must do to co-exist; and whether it is possible for GMO and organic agricultures to just get along.
GMO vs Organic
National organic coalition
agriculture is not a natural system.
Prop 37 in California failed.
USADA AC 21 Committee
Their task – Find economic loss for organic farmers because of contamination. Find ways to GM and organic farmers get along. No need to find who is responsible for the contamination.
farmers renting from patent holders
Soil biology change because of GM, what chemicals are in that plant.
There is no efficacy and safety study done on GMO except those who sells them.
Organic farmers have to take an insurance policy and if his farm in contaminated then can claim on the insurance policy.
Organic farmers are forced to self insured for what others doing ie, gm farming. Pollute pays here.
Seed companies are owned by big companies who sells the herbicides.
USDA spends only 3% in organic farming research.
