Prop 37 might not have been passed but it might have just gotten the anti-GMO ball rolling in corporate America. Well, I certainly would not have expected it to come from a heavy weight like Kaiser, but I will take it. Kaiser is advising members to go Organic solely to avoid GMO’s. Here is what Kaiser advises:
Despite what the biotech industry might say, there is little research on the long-term effects of GMOs on human health. Independent research has found that several varieties of GMO cord caused organ damage in rats. Other studies have found that GMOs may lead to an inability in animals to reproduce.
Now if I were a betting man, I would bet that Monsanto is going to be cranking up the spin engine and start a smear campaign even though they do not have long-term science to defend their products or position. I applaud Kaiser for sending this.
