Ok, I know that this world revolves on scaring the masses with misinformation in order to push an agenda, I get it. But rarely do you actually get to hear a rebuttal from someone who can clearly refute stupid shit. For instance, I saw this meme on facebook telling all of us that we should boycott these brands (pic posted) because they use Monsanto seeds….So, I’m like hmm, well I KNOW Orville Redenbacher and ACTII can’t be listed, I know that as a fact!!! But alas!!! There was Orville, and I started to get my angry red head face. Also, ConAgra as a whole company was listed, what a crock of _____.
For those who may not know, I’m a Sr. International Regulatory Affairs Specialist for ConAgra foods, so I actually know “stuff” that these dummies pretend to know and state as fact. Fact, our popcorn has nothing to do with Monsanto. Orville Redenbacher was actually a real dude who spent his life developing his own hybrid seeds. ACTII, is the same and has been developed from hybridization over the years and also has nothing to do with Monsanto.
I mean really you anti Monsanto people….you listed every single manufacturer in the top 10 food companies in your list. And, you are stupid because you list brands separately, and then whole companies…Perhaps your first google search should be which big companies own what brands, then you could at least be organized and consolidate you pack of lies. Maybe you should inform your fellow hippies who care about transgenic food (which I don’t because the science is sound, take a genetics class) that there are certain crops that you or big companies can’t get enough of to use commercially. Most corn and soy in the US and Canada are GMO, maybe you should look up the prices of identity preserved corn and its products before you try and outlaw it. It’s up to 4 times more expensive (because few farmer’s grow it, because they can’t afford to, because the yields suck) than GMO corn. In this economic climate, I don’t think most Americans what to double the price of food in the name of being a scared, non scientific, tree hugger.
I don’t care about Monsanto, I just care about the facts. GMOs are fine. You’ve been eating them for years, as have our parents and grandparents….stop being afraid of science and maybe embrace the fact that GMOs have made it possible to grow corn in drought ridden Africa and fed starving populations.
Last but not least, to the best of my knowledge, ConAgra is not owned by Monsanto….in fact if Monsanto did indeed have the trillions of dollars to own all of the companies (and brands) below, I’d totally try to get a job with them, considering they would control 90% of the US food supply….Get with it people and don’t believe this trash.
AND, you should list every food manufacturer that uses oils, corn syrup, and/or tocopherols, because my money’s on the GMOs.
