On June 26, 2012, Kellogg Company contributed $20,167.59 to the California political campaign, Stop the Costly Food Labeling Proposition, sponsored by famers and food producers. This organization was set up to spread propaganda about the cost of labeling GMOs to California residents. In this digital age, you have to wonder why a company would spend more money than it could possibly cost to change their product labels to fight against the consumer’s right to know what we are eating.
Kellogg’s products contain genetically engineered ingredients (GMOs) that were released into our food supply without independent long term testing. The FDA does not oversee the nature or extent of testing that these GMOs undergo. Instead, they allow the companies that develop them and profit from their sale, to determine whether they are safe. “The superficial studies they do conduct are widely criticized as rigged to avoid finding problems.* “Genetic engineering is crude and imprecise, and the results are unpredictable.” Mounting scientific evidence has shown that the GMOs in our food supply are not safe for human consumption.
Kellogg’s products contain an EPA Registered Pesticide also known as GMO Bt Corn, and other GMOs that have been scientifically linked to health problems. These problems include:
inflammatory bowel diseases
attention deficit disorders
faulty insulin regulation
The FDA doesn’t care, but we do. Please boycott Kellogg’s products until they remove GMOs!
