1599 is an anti-GMO labeling bill that has been ridiculously called the “Safe
and Accurate Food labeling Act of 2015.” Those who have read the bill and
understand its vile and depraved contents, however, are referring to it as the
“Deny Americans the Right to Know,” or DARK Act. The bill, which only recently
passed out of committee in the House of Representatives, attempts to strip away
the rights of states and municipal governments to enforce GMO labeling.
government has done nothing to support GMO labeling, some states have begun
taking matters into their own hands, including Vermont – which passed a law
requiring GMO labeling effective in the summer of 2016. If the DARK Act passes
into law, it would supersede Vermont’s law and other laws like it, effectively
making them null and void.
U.S. government wants to take ‘GMO bullying’ to another level
if the DARK Act weren’t already bad enough, its authors added to its content,
taking bullying to a whole new level. Now, the bill will attempt to prevent food
companies from referring to GMO foods as unsafe or promoting non-GMO foods as
safer than GMO foods. Furthermore, H.R. 1599 will block states from protecting
its farmers from pesticide drift and other economic and environmental
consequences of GMO food production.
is absolutely unthinkable that consumers in the United States of America – a
country founded on freedom and liberty – soon may not have the right to know
what is in their food. It is even more deplorable that money is the driving
factor behind the effort to strip away a right held by people in at least 64
nations around the world.
