but with GM foods you ask for one thing and get another. because Monsanto paid the government to make sure the packaging doesn't say that you're getting a genetically MODIFIED version of the product.
how would you like it if potato growers paid the government to make sure that when you buy apple juice its really a potato juice inside the bottle but says apple juice on the sticker ? well that's exactly what they did.
research showed that genetically modified foods have negative side effects not found in their nonmodified counterparts. just as you would expect different risks from eating pork as opposed to chicken for example. the difference is that if you wanted to substitute pork with chicken in your diet you could easily do that. but if you wanted to substitute GM food with normal food there wouldn't be much you could do because it is NOT LABELLED thanks to Monsanto's lobbying.
Donald Rumsfeld is easily one of the biggest Assholes of our time. Whether it is selling biological weapons to middle eastern dictators or poisonous foods to American public - he is the man for the job. I think the reason he was put in charge of the military is probably because of how much he likes to make people suffer and die.
