The threat to GMO labeling: The DARK act just got DARKer

Print Friendly

gmo-needle-corn(NaturalHealth365) Genetically modified foods have long been a hotly debated topic in the United States, and the battle has only grown stronger in recent years. Studies from the Mellman Group and Consumers Union reveal that the vast majority of Americans – approximately 9 in 10 – believe that GMO foods are a threat to human health and should be labeled. In fact, research shows that Americans in favor of GMO consumer labeling span the lines of gender, age, education and political affiliation.

Unfortunately, the government and agricultural industry think differently. They have long lobbied against the labeling of GMO foods, citing a litany of irrelevant concerns ranging from the cost of labeling to the supposed ‘safety’ of genetically modified foods. Now, they are attempting to put the final nail in the coffin by passing a reckless bill that bullies the American public into remaining uninformed and oblivious to the content of our food.

Huge warning about H.R. 1599: The ‘DARK Act’

H.R. 1599 is an anti-GMO labeling bill that has been ridiculously called the “Safe and Accurate Food labeling Act of 2015.” Those who have read the bill and understand its vile and depraved contents, however, are referring to it as the “Deny Americans the Right to Know,” or DARK Act. The bill, which only recently passed out of committee in the House of Representatives, attempts to strip away the rights of states and municipal governments to enforce GMO labeling.

Since the government has done nothing to support GMO labeling, some states have begun taking matters into their own hands, including Vermont – which passed a law requiring GMO labeling effective in the summer of 2016. If the DARK Act passes into law, it would supersede Vermont’s law and other laws like it, effectively making them null and void.

The U.S. government wants to take ‘GMO bullying’ to another level

As if the DARK Act weren’t already bad enough, its authors added to its content, taking bullying to a whole new level. Now, the bill will attempt to prevent food companies from referring to GMO foods as unsafe or promoting non-GMO foods as safer than GMO foods. Furthermore, H.R. 1599 will block states from protecting its farmers from pesticide drift and other economic and environmental consequences of GMO food production.

It is absolutely unthinkable that consumers in the United States of America – a country founded on freedom and liberty – soon may not have the right to know what is in their food. It is even more deplorable that money is the driving factor behind the effort to strip away a right held by people in at least 64 nations around the world.

Truly shocking information.  Watch this video (below) with yours truly, Jonathan Landsman and Jeffrey Smith, the leading consumer advocate promoting healthier non-GMO choices, talking about the suppressed scientific truth behind GMO foods and its dangers. (and share the news!)

Americans need to stand up to the DARK Act and demand greater transparency in consumer labeling. Those who believe in protecting and expanding consumer food rights should contact their representatives in opposition of H.R. 1599.

Find your representative here, then call them and tell them to say “No” to HR 1599.

    There is an alternative to GMO labeling!!! The foods that are NOT GMO can say so. It will be the same thing and they can’t take that away, at least I don’t know how.

    • Bob

      This is what works where I live. We only purchase items that say non-GMO on the label and now there are more and more products that are being produced with this on the label. As a consumer just never purchase anything that is missing the words “non-GMO” on the label. Vote with your dollar. Manufacturers will get the point and ditch the GMO so they can place this on their label. If you just purchase anything, then your grocer will purchase cheap non-food items. Supply and demand.

    This is another example of the Federal government over-stepping their Constitutional authority and in this instance they’re doing it to protect the industries involved in GMOs. Aren’t we the people the ones paying taxes and voting for these hucksters that forget every campaign promise once elected. When is the general population going to awaken to reality?

  • Buggs

    I’m so mad I could spit nails. The corruption has grown so deep and is so pervasive that it truly boggles the mind that these representatives can sleep at night. I wrote my legislators repeatedly and gave different reasons explaining why it was important to oppose the DARK act. Never heard boo. When I’ve written in the past about other issues, I have heard back. I honestly don’t foresee this being stopped at the rate this is moving. Where are those who have the power to do something? Is there no one left? I am at a loss as to whether this can be fought anymore. Their agenda continues to move ahead and no one is stopping them. I am furious and at the same time feel utterly helpless to do anything.

  • Joseph Smith

    This is just like when they passed the Fair Housing Act and made it illegal for realtors to label neighborhoods as black, white, Christian, etc.

    The only difference is the Fair Housing Act absolutely put put in danger and at risk, where so far GMO’s haven’t been proven (except to the 88% of scientists that believe in their safety).
