Whole Foods goes ROGUE... partners with Monsanto to kill GMO labeling across America...

• http://www.naturalnews.com

(NaturalNews) According to breaking news reports, Whole Foods Market (WFM) has gone full rogue, partnering with Monsanto to kill GMO labeling across America under the guise of a new, fraudulent "GMO labeling compromise" in the U.S. Senate that's actually a fake labeling law requiring no clear labeling of GMOs whatsoever.

Food Democracy Now has issued this red alert, naming the sellout corporations (including Whole Foods) that have betrayed health-conscious consumers with a sellout deal that outlaws GMO labeling nationwide.

The deception on food labeling has never been greater. With this act of ultimate betrayal, Whole Foods cements its position as a poison-pushing distribution partner of Monsanto, the world's most evil corporation that produces poisonous, deadly crops laced with bt toxin and glyphosate, a cancer-linked herbicide.

With this betrayal of consumers, Whole Foods might as well now be called, "POISON FOODS" because that's what they're pushing.

Whole Foods Joins Monsanto Try to Kill GMO Labeling in America

Washington D.C. -- National grassroots organizations expressed their outrage today towards a group of U.S. Senators and major, self-described, "organic companies" that have brokered a backroom legislative deal to kill mandatory GMO labeling of food products across America while stifling first-of-its-kind state legislation in Vermont (slated to go in effect this Friday, July 1st) that would mandate labeling of foods that have been genetically engineered in laboratories.

The companies, including Whole Foods, Smucker's and Organic Valley, among others, have historically funded major public relations and advertising campaigns to promote themselves as "organic" brands. Now, some national leaders are criticizing these companies for "selling out" the GMO labeling movement, public health and the environment and urging the public to fight back.

"Make no mistake, these self-proclaimed organic companies, including Whole Foods, Smucker's Stonyfield and Organic Valley have just joined with Monsanto and sold out the ability for parents to know what they are feeding their children," said Dave Murphy, Executive Director of Food Democracy Now!

Murphy continued, "Monsanto and Whole Foods' new fake labeling bill would not only preempt Vermont's bill this week, but all provisions of the bill are OPTIONAL -- the bill's language is so poorly written that it would actually not include 85% of the current GMOs on the market, including Roundup Ready GMOs owned by Monsanto that are sprayed with the weedkiller glyphosate, which the World Health Organization declared a "probable carcinogen" linked to cancer in lab animals and humans last year."
