Political and corporate elite shun GM food on their own plate

GMO-DNA-Genes-Plate-Silverware With a sad twist of irony, corporate and government elite dine on  safe, organic food while the masses, those very people who are supposedly  represented and protected by their governments, are poisoned by hidden  genetically modified organisms, pesticides and dangerous contaminants. The  presidential family demands organic food in their kitchen, yet behind closed  doors, shake hands with the biotech industry. China’s top brass is fed by an  exclusive, gated organic garden while the rest of the population consumes GM  food, steroid contaminated meat and dairy laced with melamine. Even Monsanto’s  own employee’s command non-genetically modified food in their canteen. Access to  clean, organic and healthy food is not a given right anymore — it has become a  political battleground with the average citizen suffering the loss.

White House double-take

While First Lady Michelle Obama digs up the  White House lawn to plant an organic garden, her husband promotes a GMO agenda  within his administration. “You know, in my household, over the last year we  have just shifted to organic,” she said in a New Yorker interview during  Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. Organic produce from the garden feeds  the Obama family and visiting dignitaries alike. Seems okay so far. But then  take a look at Obama’s laundry-list of presidential appointed positions with  biotech ties: USDA head Roger Beachy, a former director at Monsanto, FDA food  safety czar Michael Taylor, one-time vice president for public policy at Monsanto, Commissioner of  the USDA Tom Vilsack who created the Governors’ Biotechnology Partnership. Under  President Obama, 10 new GM crops have been approved for ‘safe  consumption.’

Spiked fences protect organic gardens from the people

The political  elite in China enjoy the safest of food — organic produce, grass-fed beef from  Inner Mongolia, rice free of pesticides, chemicals or genetically modified  organisms. Compare this with the food supply of ordinary citizens  that is laden with pesticides, industrial chemicals and GMOs. Children have  become sick and died from tainted baby formula and milk products. Blindness and  death have resulted from adults consuming fake liquor. Yet Chinese leaders have  their own protected food sources of the highest quality. In Beijing, an organic farm is surrounded by a six-foot spiked fence while security personnel guard the  entrance. The garden produces food for top-notch officials only. Beidaihe  Sanitorium, a seaside haven for retired party cadres, exclusively uses a  specialty rice that is organic and free of GMOs. As for the public, they can  purchase the small remaining surplus of the grain at 15 times the cost of  regular rice. All the while, the government continues to approve GMOs and  harmful chemicals for general consumption.

GMO-free meals at Monsanto

Remember the notice at a Monsanto staff  canteen stating the decision “to remove, as far as practicable, GM soya and  maize from all food products served in our restaurant. We have taken the above  steps to ensure that you, the customer, can feel confident in the food we  serve.” According to Tony Coombes, the company’s spokesperson, “Yes, this is the  case, and it is because we believe in choice.”
Evidently the average  citizen is not allowed the same courtesy of choice considering GMOs have  infiltrated the food supply and are not labeled in North America. Only those who  can afford the price tag of organic food are able to protect themselves from  harmful contaminants. As for the rest of the population, they are the ones who  will suffer the devastating health consequences of a corrupt system.
