The inherent mission statement of all corporations is to increase profits at all costs. The bottom line is… the bottom line and everything else is subservient to that. The same is true whether you’re a giant chemical company or a giant “natural” foods company. Proof of this came in a statement from Whole Foods, a company that has consistently turned its back on its founding principals, undoubtedly for sake of catering to shareholders:
“The policy set for GE alfalfa will most likely guide policies for other GE crops as well. True coexistence is a must.” - Whole Foods Market, Jan. 21, 2011
In the wake of a 12-year battle to keep Monsanto’s Genetically Engineered (GE) crops from contaminating the nation’s 25,000 organic farms and ranches, America’s organic consumers and producers are facing betrayal. A self-appointed cabal of the Organic Elite, spearheaded by Whole Foods Market, Organic Valley, and Stonyfield Farm, has decided it’s time to surrender to Monsanto. Top executives from these companies have publicly admitted that they no longer oppose the mass commercialization of GE crops, such as Monsanto’s controversial Roundup Ready alfalfa, and are prepared to sit down and cut a deal for “coexistence” with Monsanto and USDA biotech cheerleader Tom Vilsack.
Genetically engineered crops are a scourge upon this planet. They are impossible to contain, leaping from farm to farm like a virus in the plant kingdom. If plants could scream they would sound like humans being chased by zombies, succumbing to a plaque that could eventually transform all food sources on this planet. Heaven help us.
