Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton appeared at the
BIO International Convention on Wednesday, June 25 and made comments
that confirmed what most in the growing natural and organic food
movement already know: she’s pro-GMO through and through (at least when
it comes to other people), much like the other big money politicians
from the two major political parties.
Of course the federal government already produces huge subsidies for the
commodity crops corn and soy, which are mostly GMO in the United States
(over 90% each); many non-GMO farmers have say they’ve been forced to abandon growing these crops due to the cross contamination risk they pose and thus are not able to take advantage of such subsidies.
As noted in this article from 2009, Hillary Clinton has deep ties with the Biotech, GMO and agrochemical industries.
But at home, Hillary seems adamant about what she wants in her own garden and on her own dinner table as noted in this article.
