President Obama Admits ‘Legitimate Concerns’ in GMO Debate

Posted on Nov 7 2016 - 10:29pm by Sustainable Pulse

In an interview by Bill Maher revealed on Twitter on Friday, U.S. President Barack Obama discussed issues such as food purity, GMOs, pesticides and antibiotics.

President Obama’s main comments on GMOs can be seen below:

“In the GMO debate there are some areas where there are legitimate concerns, there are some areas where the science seems to indicate that this is OK.”

“If it turns out that some of these genetically modifed foods aren’t healthier, aren’t more productive and use more pesticides then we should follow the science. If in some cases they are not causing any harm then we should follow the science there as well.”

    Dear President Obama,
    Please stop GMO’S from being hidden from the people by reversing “The Dark Act”! The United States citizens have the right to know what is in our food! I beg you, please don’t let these Conglomerate Companies hide what is in our food! If it’s supposedly okay to eat, why are they hiding the fact that it’s Genetically Modified?

    We will never know what damage is being done without lo ng term testing. None has been done, to date, and none is planned, except to use us as guinea pigs!

    Obama is a hypocrite!
    In 2008, when he was running president the first time, he stated that he wanted labelling of GMOs. Since taking office he has repeatedly blocked any labelling laws.
    I believe nothing this man says.

    Is he blatantly lying or what? Michelle Obama proudly talks about her little Organic Garden at the White House but Obama signs bill that forever exempts Big Food from placing GMO labels on food packages so the rest of us that are not blessed like the Obama’s have to decipher which food is real!? Utterly disgusting!
