As they say, if you can keep your head when all about you are losing
their's, then you probably haven't grasped the seriousness of the situation.
I think we should be at least a little concerned.
There is good scientific evidence for being worried about the uncontrolled
and unlabelled entrance of genetically engineered foods into the already
degraded American diet. Why has, according to government figures, the health
of the American people deteriorated every year since 1957? In part, it's
lack of exercise, but the rest of it has to do with the corporate
manipulation of our food system.
The question is one of choice about what you take into your body, about your
personal relationship to the environment and about whether you or a small
number of corporations who may not represent your best interests decide
these things. Consumers are not being the trogladytic nincompoopes that
Monsanto et al. seem to want us to think. They are rightly concerned about
their health and rationally distrustful of a company and an industry that
has not put consumer health and corporate ethics among their first 472
priorities at any time in the past. The consumers **of the world** are right
on this and they have the right to be heeded.
