New companies to boycott for not showing proof of GMO usages!

More than half of the states in this country are currently fighting to mandate GMO labeling; if voters say yes to Initiative 522, Washington could be the first in the nation to force companies to give consumers some sort of clue if what they are eating has been genetically modified.

Now Bloomberg is reporting that Monsanto and DuPont, two of the nation’s largest producers of GMO seeds in the U.S. have given a combined $8.7 million towards I-522's defeat — nearly half of the $18.1 million raised against the labeling initiative so far.

This should come as no surprise, considering the two biotech giants also happened to be the two biggest contributors toward the defeat of California’s similar prop 37 labeling initiative last year. Five million is more than Monsanto has spent lobbying the government thus far this year.

Why are these food companies so utterly unwilling to just tell their customers what is in the food they are selling? Many of the businesses on this list have also dropped GMO ingredients in Europe because of such strong opposition and labeling laws; but apparently here in the good ‘ol U.S.A., it’s cheaper to just keep putting GMOs in the food and not telling anyone about it.
