Bernie Sanders Calls Out US Policy on GMOs, Slams Monsanto. Video Included. The Presidential candidate and Senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders is known for his views against GMO food and his standings for sustainable farming. This article is not for prop Sanders up on a pedestal, but is simple reminder to consider how your favorite candidate will vote on GMOs once elected.
The senator helped to pass the most wanted legislation for protecting family owned farms. Most important thing for this legislation is that is not support gigantic corporation Agrichemicals farms that monopolize food production with the Farm Bill from 2004. Sanders also approve the allowing to require labels on foods that contain GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms). This is based on the crucial right on every citizen and customer`s right to know. However, he is not strictly against GMOs. He simply wants to protect our right to know what we eat.
“Unlike people in the U.K., France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Australia, South Korea, Japan, Brazil, China, Russia, New Zealand and other countries where labels are required, Americans don’t know if the food they eat has been genetically modified. People have a right to know what they are eating”, says Senator Bernie Sanders.
He continue: “I believe that when a mother goes to the store and purchases food for her child, she has the right to know what she is feeding her child. It’s no mystery why Monsanto would fight people’s right to know. Clearly, they have a lot to protect,” Sanders says.
He is known as not a huge fan or friend of Monsanto, an in that way he comments for one of the most dislike company for food productions: “Monsanto and other companies are saying states can’t do it [label GMOs]. It is a federal prerogative. My amendment said if California, Vermont, Connecticut, other states want to go forward, they should have that right.” Sanders was interview two years ago, and you can see his statement and views on GMOs here:
This views are not new, for him, he also give a speech in front of U.S. House about Monsanto in 1998. Even then he talked about family farms in US. Watch:
