News of the Week: Seedy Business and GMO Foods


This just in from the OCA:

What is Big Food hiding from you, with its slick public relations campaign?

Plenty, according to a new tell-all report by the nonprofit U.S. Right to Know.

The report, titled “Seedy Business: What Big Food Is Hiding with its Slick PR Campaign on GMOs,” details how since 2012, the agrichemical and food industries have mounted a complex, multifaceted public relations, advertising, lobbying and political campaign in the U.S., costing more than $100 million, to defend genetically engineered food and crops and the pesticides that accompany them.

Inside the pages of this thoroughly researched report, you’ll find examples of how companies like Monsanto use sleazy tactics to manipulate the media and public opinion. You’ll also learn how “the science” that the biotech industry claims is “on their side,” is actually bought and paid for.

“Seedy Business” also exposes a few of the crimes, scandals and other wrongdoings companies like Monsanto and Syngenta, Dow, DuPont and Bayer, would rather you not know.
