This is about the right that I have to know exactly what this companies are putting in our food, I don't care who checks. People say that you can make a choice of what you eat based on the experience you have with food. If you don't like it, don't buy it. But, what if you do like the product, but don't realize that the product has something harmful, like what just happened to Gatorate. They are eliminating an ingredient that is band in EU and in Japan:
Information is key to make a smart choice. Many products that are labeled today by the companies as "organic" are still allowed by FDA to use pesticides. What I am truly talking about is the conglomerates like conagra and monsanto, that have seized the market and the control of most of our food using seeds that are banned even in controversial, anti-civil rights place like China, because they do not want to mix their rice with the gmo type. If you truly believe in free market, we can't allow this companies to take control of all our food, since they have patented everything that they produce.
Knowledge is the currency of the Universe.-
