Blacklist Of 10 GMO Supporting Food Companies To Be Avoided

Many of the products that seem so good are actually just subsidiaries of the companies that were most complicit in blocking GMO labeling, aided and abetted by everyone’s favorite purveyor of death, Monsanto.

It is good to know that Monsanto, incidentally, donated $7,100,500.00 to the fight against the labeling of GMO-containing products!  

Don’t forget that Monsanto is now above the law due to the Monsanto Protection Act, a traitorous rider that Senator Roy Blunt managed to attach to a bill that was subsequently signed into a law by the current President!

I wish I could make a comprehensive list, but there are more stealthily labeled toxins on the shelves every single day.  It all boils down to a these big companies that own nearly all of the foods sold in the United States. Some of the quietly owned subsidiaries may surprise you.  

Included is the amount that the company and its subsidiaries donated to  defeat California Proposition 37 (which would have required GMO labeling).

Not every item on this list contains GMO ingredients. The list is based on the duplicitous marketing of the companies. More consumers are trying to make healthy choices at the grocery stores, but it’s difficult when companies push their toxic wares and dress them up as health food.

Young people in particular fall victim to these ominous schemes.  You have to give a kid credit for purchasing something called “vitamin water” over a soda pop, and it’s infuriating that the kid, trying to make a good choice, has been tricked into the purchase by deceitful ads and marketing slogans.

Some of the products listed, may in fact be exactly what they are said to be, but I choose not to financially support the corporations behind them.

Turn your head from these products! Simply starve the beast!

It isn’t all bad news…  

There are several companies you can still count on – keep in mind that corporate mergers take place every day.  When businesses change hands, there is no obligation to notify the public.  One such cautionary story happened with the company Dean’s, which acquired Horizon Foods.  

They quietly phased out the use of organic products without making any changes to the label and used non-organic milk produced under factory farm conditions.

They dropped the quality of their organic soy and began purchasing cheaper harvests from Asia.  Meanwhile, unwitting retailers had no idea that the company had stopped producing the items organically, and continued to promote the products as they had prior to the acquisition! But who knows, maybe they did it on purpose!
