Why has the White House served virtually nothing but organic foods to the First Families since the second Clinton administration, while every President since 1996 has promoted unlabeled GM food for the rest of us? (That's the year GM foods were first produced, right down the road from me at UC Davis, with Monsanto funding.) At present, the race is neck-to-neck between Romney and Obama both in the polls and in terms of not doing anything to protect or promote safer, more healthful organic foods for average Americans. Instead, both of them, while on organic diets themselves, promote untested GE foods for the masses. Mitt Romney has his own galley on Romney Air. Sources close to the campaign say the shelves are stocked with a wide variety of healthy fare. Kashi cereals, hummus, pita, as well as organic applesauce. Everything's organic, including the ingredients to Romney's favorite snack, peanut butter and honey sandwiches.
Even more interesting, Ann Romney has credited organic food with defeating her multiple sclerosis! After realizing steroids were doing more harm than good, 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 this lifestyle with turning her health around.
So, the obvious question is: why do "We the People" have no food advocates in Washington, D.C.? After promising to label GM food, Obama appointed Monsanto VP Michael Taylor as head of the FDA where he wields near absolute power over our national agricultural issues!
