With Bayer acquiring ‘Monsatan’, anti-GMO activists need new bogeyman

|

The German conglomerate Bayer has agreed to buy Monsanto … Now the speculation has turned to American anti-science groups and how they will continue to demonize a company that isn’t part of evil America, but … based in the Europe they love to invoke.

Monsanto has been a ready target for those groups… One of those groups, the Non-GMO Project, has even made a fortune charging companies to put a label on saying they don’t have any GMOs.

. . . .

…Non-GMO Project … really need[s] both GMOs and Monsanto to be American if those checks are going to keep rolling in…

…So one of their most successful fundraisers is trying to work up some interest in Bayer, telling Fox Business that “This deal is a disturbing step in the corporate consolidation of our global food supply. …Bayer is one of the world’s top 10 chemical companies.”

. . . .

…Regardless of what they may claim when prompted by polls, Americans have no issue at all with GMO foods…
