What's more I assert my right to make that choice myself, based on whatever
criteria seem appropriate to me, be they scientific, social, economic,
aesthetic, philosophical, spiritual, whimsical, or otherwise. In other
words, I assert an absolute sovereign right to determine for myself what is
put into my mouth and becomes part of my own organism and what is not.
Beyond that, I assert the right to sufficient information to be able to
make this choice based on informed consent, a familiar concept in health
care, seemingly foreign to the world of food, an odd legal inconsistency
perhaps worth pursuing. I have not agreed that food producers may make
this decision for me (not that they have bothered to asked).
I have a right *and a responsibility* to know and decide for myself. We
all do. There's too much riding on this to leave it in the hands of
"scientists" bought and paid for by an industry with so much at stake
financially. I'm sorry, but they've pretty well blown whatever credibility
they may once have had, at least in my eyes.
