The federal government is still working hard to convince the public that their food is safe.
Big Ag, Big Food and their champions in the U.S. Federal government have found a way to get around consumers who want to avoid GMO foods. They have renamed GMO foods to “bioengineered” foods in the hopes that U.S. consumers can be tricked. As of Jan. 1, 2022 U.S. consumers will begin to see labels on some foods that say “bioengineered” or “derived from bioengineering,” (aka GMO) as the new federal law takes effect.
Starting in February 2021, the Russian veterinary watchdog Rosselhoznadzor said it had banned the import of feed and feed additives from multiple U.S.-based companies after undeclared and unregistered GMO components had purportedly been found in several product samples during routine investigations.
One of the many additives in highly processed veggie burgers has recently led to a lawsuit filed against the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for permitting the additive to be included in the fake burgers sans proper safety testing.

Yet another study has just been published that has as its premise, “If we could just get the idiot public to understand science, they would change their negative attitudes about GMO food”. The problem? As with the researchers that came before them did, the researchers in the current replication study neglected to inform study participants of TWO KEY FACTORS SURROUNDING GMO FOOD: (1) High levels of Monsanto’s Round-Up Weedkiller pesticide is present in GMO foods on the grocery shelves, and (2) No safety testing for GMO foods has ever been conducted in the U.S.
