Monsanto, Dupont fight Initiative 522 in Washington
It begs the question
The Times reported that DuPont Pioneer has joined with Monsanto in donating millions of dollars to try to defeat Initiative 522, which would require foods with genetically modified ingredients to be labeled. [“Agribusinesses give nearly $8 million to campaign against GMO labeling,” seattletimes.com, Sept. 13.]
If the genetically modified grains these companies sell are at least as healthful to consumers as are the non-modified grains, why are they trying to hide the fact that such grains are included in what we eat?
They should be perhaps using those millions to promote their products instead of fighting disclosure, shouldn’t they?
