The tobacco scientists of the 1960s have been supplanted by the GMO statisticians of the 2010s. The consortium of agribiz giants, which spent a mere $2 per voter in California to defeat Prop 37, has now spent in excess of $3 per voter against Initiative 522 in Washington.
A significant portion has been paid to the same outfits that cobbled together the stats in California which scared folks into thinking GMO labeling will cost eaters lots at the supermarket checkout. Yet the numbers in the voters pamphlet in Thurston County from the state auditor do not begin to support Monsanto, Bayer, Sygenta and GMAs paid statisticians numbers.
As the saying goes: There are lies, damned lies, and statistics. Why is so much money being spent to convince voters its a bad idea for us to know whats in our food?
