Multinational corporations are trying in every way possible to wrest control of our choices away from us, leaving us only with whatever GMO/poisoned dregs they foist on us to make us sicker and them richer. Have you been hearing how more and more earnings are going to the 1% richest individuals and corporations, and the shrinking middle class and poor going backwards in earnings? It all is part of the movement of our treasure to the super-rich. The ultimate power grab is through the dreaded "Fast Track" of the Trans-Pacific "Partnership," the highly secret policy in the works for three years now to give those corporations sovereignty over our Congress and court system.

So why is it that organic regulators allow the process of mutagenesis in organic—even though mutagenesis is a form of genetic modification that…
