    Why Do Supporters of Genetically Engineered Foods Insist on Organics for Themselves?

    Over the past few years, an interesting pattern has emerged, where political supporters of genetically engineered (GE) foods are feasting on organics, while promoting unlabeled GE foods for everyone else.

    Most recently, Mother Jones1 discussed how Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney – whose ties to Monsanto go back to the late 1970's when GE crops were still in the R&D phase – reportedly makes sure his own meals are nothing but organic...

    According to Peter Alexander of MSN Today:2

    "On Romney Air, or Hair Force One – as Reuters' Steve Holland like to call it – Mitt Romney has his own galley in 'forward cabin.' And, while I've never been invited up front, sources close to the campaign tell me the shelves are stocked with a wide variety of healthy fare. Kashi cereals, hummus, pita, as well as organic applesauce.

    Everything's organic, I'm told, including the ingredients to Romney's favorite, peanut butter and honey sandwiches."

    Even more interesting, in a 2002 article3 about Romney's wife, Ann, she credits a combination of organic foods and holistic medicine for turning her health around after she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1998. The profile reads in part:

    "...She was 49 at the time, and the disease was progressing rapidly, she says, prompting the doctors to put her on steroids, which made her so sick she could barely get out of bed. 'They were killing me,' she says of the treatment. 'You have bone loss; they are so bad for you.'

    Mrs. Romney was introduced to several practitioners of holistic medicine, who persuaded her to adopt alternative therapies. She now eats organic foods and very little meat. She practices reflexology and undergoes acupuncture treatments. She credits the lifestyle with turning her health around...

    Cos they're hypocrital fuckers that see the benefit of shrinking the population - so long as it's not them and their families who are being shrunken.

    Its very telling that someone such as this does not eat GM foods, after all he would very likely have access to all the research and background information on these products that Monsanto would never release into the public domain.

    Hypothetically, if you knew what the raw ingredients were, that were used to make soylent green, it’s highly unlikely you would choose to eat this product given the choice.
