Fight Over Genetically Modified Organisms Food Labeling – Video from KITV Honolulu

I’m enclosing a clip from our local news about how we are fighting to have our foods labeled to let people know if there are any GMO ingredients in the package. The Hawaiian people fought to keep Monsanto and University of Hawaii from trying to Change the Taro plant into a GMO (Genetically Modified) plant and the Hawaiians won. Thank goodness.

But right now Monsanto is paying off many, many people and feeding them false information about the foods being safe. So it has been a long hard fight to get any of the representatives or senators who are not receiving anything from Monsanto to introduce this bill.

So the Hawaiians who were involved in the fight to save their taro are back to help those of us trying to keep our food from being contaminated. So they brought their statue of Haloa. Legend has it that Haloa (http://honoluluweekly.com/cover/story-continued/2006/03/food-for-life/) was born to two major gods. He was misshapen and died. When he was buried the Taro plant grew from him. His brother born after him took care of the plant and in turn the plant fed him and his family and all the nation of Hawaii.

So the taro plant is more than a plant it is family and treated with respect and honored. So with that background you can now take a look at the news clipping and understand a little more.

    Yeah right. I’m in favor in products labeling specially in GMO products. I’m really upset with GMO products. Did you know that Monsanto company ranked as worst company in 2011? here’s the article http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/01/31/monsanto-worst-company-of-2011.aspx

  2. The senator saying he was going to wait to see what the Federal Government was going to do was a huge cop out. Especially when you think about how states get all up in arms when they don’t want the government to butt into their rulings when it suits them.

    Is there really anything lower than a politician and greater threat to the American people? The frustration just grows and grows.
